·Dined on November 13, 2017

The restaurant itself was very nice. Our server was alright but also somewhat arrogant and at times almost condescending.
I wanted to order the soup that was on the menu but was informed that they had run out of that soup so I order the shrimp appetizers that was either $14 or $16 instead. I order the $49.00 steak for supper and did not even eat half of my meal (as my mushrooms were sour and bitter, tasted bad, and the waiter commented on this and actually laughed but did not offer to do anything about it. Someone else at our table ordered the same thing and their mushrooms were very good so I know it was the mushrooms and not us) so asked to have my meal packed up to go. When the waiter brought the bill he told me he accidentally "tossed my supper in the garbage" and took off my $14.00 appetizer in lieu of throwing out half of my $49.00 supper.
Very disappointed in my experience at the Red Ox Inn and do not see myself every going back.

The food was exception the evening we went to the Red Ox Inn. My husband had the prawns for a starter and I enjoyed the beet salad. Both dishes were delicious. For our main courses, my husband had the strip loin and I ordered the gnocci. My husband said the steak was cooked to perfection and the potatoes were excellent. The gnocci were tender and complimented by mushrooms in a butter sauce.

Was very impressed with the quiet setting, small venue and excellent presentation. Did not feel rushed or over served.

Quiet presence of waiting staff was a nice change from the forced over exuberance you sometimes get at dining establishments.

Definitely a five star experience!

We visited on a Sunday evening, quiet inside, some nice music playing in the background. They have a decent beer selection, including a local Alberta beer I have not had before. Dinner was excellent, well prepared, very tasty, some nice sauces to compliment. Desert was really great too. Our service was simply excellent.

I have to admit Red Ox Inn does not immediately come to my mind when pondering a dining destination. Attended a few days ago with friends and we were all blown away with the quality and inventiveness of the food. It’s a very small space that could use a bit of panache but comfortable and we enjoyed the little nook we were seated in. Waitstaff Kim was stellar and we all thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Will definitely be going back!

I came to celebrate my birthday, and was very impressed with my main course.

The appetizers were nice, however the portions were relatively small. I ordered the pork belly, and as tasty as it was I didn't think the portion was worth the pricing. I had recently ordered a pork belly appetizer from a restaurant in New York, and although the restaurant had a Michelin star and was twice the price, I had to compare and wasn't as impressed. The beet salad was also very tasty, but all in all next time I would order different appetizers or none at all.

The main courses on the other hand were amazing. At our table we ordered the beef, duck, halibut and gnocchi and were not disappointed. The portions excellent and flavour profiles amazing. I would definitely recommend all dishes again to anyone. I also would like to go back and try the lamb. I ordered the beef entre and every aspect was perfectly flavoured. The gnocchi was also very well prepared.

Lastly my mother was diabetic and ordered the halibut, and the chef and server were nice enough to modify the dish to include roasted cauliflower instead of polenta, which we greatly appreciated.

Overall the atmosphere is nice, however it is quite a small establishment, and a relatively intimate setting. Not recommended for groups larger than 4, but I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner.

Excellent. Booked in for a table of 4, suprised by the simple non pretentious decor of bench and booth diner style seating. The old hotel diner kind of mish mash look worked, in a refreshing way, after all, not all places that make great food at the 4+ $ symbol price level need to be white table cloth fancy.
Service was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable about the dishes, the extensive wine list and the beers they served, including where the brewery was located.
Food was excellent, delicious, lovely presentation, perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned.
What we had off the menu I don't think matters, we had 4 of the 6 starters and 4 of the 6 mains and 3 of the 5 desserts between us, we all sampled and loved each others dishes...Im sure it's safe to say the ones we didn't have were marvelous.
Any negatives? If im being picky, the beer selection could improve by having more local product and the salted caramel popcorn took away from the flavours of the incredible torte dessert it was on top of.
As we left, 1 person in our party said, "I think that's my new favorite Edmonton restaurant", ....and one other agreed.

Very nice evening - we will go back on special occasions. (Cost was $185.00 for appies, entre, a litre of wine and one port).
