    The food was excellent but we waited an hour and a half before our meal arrived. The server was not attentive but that could of been due to being parents weekend and being very crowded.

    This was our first time eating at Snackbar. Everything we ordered was outstanding. But, more importantly we have to deal with food allergies and they could not have been more accommodating.

    I loved the vibe of this neighborhood spot. The quality of food was incredible. Flavors, textures, everything was amazing. Service was outstanding. It was a super busy evening, but we expected things to be a little slower. But thankfully, it wasn’t too slow. Definitely get the smoked duck wings! Sesame crusted trout had wonderful sauces. And don’t miss out on dessert. The chocolate tahini poundcake and the peanut butter pop tarts were outstanding.

    Our party of 8 -- all visitors to Oxford -- loved our evening at Snackbar! We appreciated the great service in wrangling our large table, and it was such a treat to be at a restaurant where you can carry on a conversation. The food was wonderful: everyone ordered something different, and everyone was very pleased. So close to the Square, and with plentiful parking -- Snacker was a home run!

    Everyone in our family loves snackbar. I love the fish stew, (friday and Sat night special) my husband enjoys the fish and kids like Steak frites (truffle fries are insane) and croque monsieur. Good wine selection and interesting crafted cocktails.

    We waited over an hour for our food and it was a Wednesday night which didn't seem busy. There were several empty tables around us so I do not know why the long delay. The food was good/fair but the price was outrageous! We will not be going back.

    Snack Bar always lives up to it's reputation of great food, service and atmosphere. Our out of town guests are impressed with the cosmopolitan atmosphere and the great food and wine offerings. The oyster bar is a favorite for appetizers. The price is comparable to other high end restaurants. We highly recommend Snack Bar if you are in the Oxford area.

    Never a dull dish or evening here. Vish Bhatt has earned a James Beard Award whether he receives one or not. Our server was knowledgeable, helpful, and a joy to be around. The staff taking reservations were very accommodating, considering I changed them 4 times on Open Table due to the addition of new guests. Oxford is blessed to have such a fine establishment. Oh, and the food was outstanding.

    The food was amazing, the service was superb. I only had 2 issues and I feel like "issue" is too strong a word. First, a table of men was seated next to us about halfway through our meal and I had to stop talking to my husband and wait for them to get settled in before continuing our conversation because these men were so boisterous. Not the restaurant's fault at all. Just rude, already mostly drunk patrons. But I was not about to scream for my husband to be able to hear me 2 feet away. Second, the air was so dry. Not something I would normally notice about a restaurant but it was so dry that we both started getting really stuffed up and our nasal passages started swelling closed. Otherwise, a great evening and a superb meal.

    My husband and I both had the special. It was a red fish over their version of hoppin John. It was amazing. My husband got the oysters. The waiter did a great job of telling us the various types of oysters they had available. They were really good. I had the Pimms cup one of their mixed drinks and it was great as always. The service, food and atmosphere were perfect.

    Usually all of my dishes are exceptional at SB. However, I chose the Wednesday special- a shepherd's pie with collards- and was disappointed. The pie was bland and the greens bitter. Yet the sweet potato and dessert were delicious! Of course the service was great and the ambiance is always nice. Must've been an office night for SB (or me!). No worries! I'll still continue to patron the SB but will stick to my 'old favorites' on the menu.
