We requested the porch, so that we could enjoy the view of the mountains. The menu is varied, and I chose the coq au vin. One of the best I've ever had, if not the best. My husband chose the steak, which he enjoyed. We split a salad, which had a great variety of flavors and textures. The ice cream sample was just the right size for dessert, and included cookies and candy--what more could you ask for?
Service was professional and very pleasant.
Would recommend for a special occasion, such as anniversary, birthday. It would make for a memorable meal and evening.
Food is excellent, as is creativity on the menu. Our server was very attentive and very nice and easy to interact with. We were staying in North Conway and when another restaurant we like ended up being booked, we made the 25 min drive to Oxford House. We will gladly make the drive again the next time we are in the area.
Lovely place to have a special dinner. Food is excellent, service was perfect. comfortable. People quite proper and refined - probably not a place to bring a young child or a raucous group.
Fortunately we were the only table seated for most of our meal. As more guests came in, it got progressively more crowded and the noise level rose. Had the dining room been as crowded for our entire meal as it was by the end, I would have enjoyed it that much less. Our experience was good - I would hesitate to go later in the evening.
Always a great place to go for a special celebration.Does not disappoint. The food is always Delicious!
Food as always was super good, the staff is excellent.
Had dinner here on Sunday night, 2/16/20. Super friendly greeting, great waitstaff, amazing food and wine, and a table in front of the fire. What could be bad? Best salmon I can remember ever having. A surprise gem in an out of the way place. Next time we're in the area we will be back!
Always a favorite place. The food was delicious (as always) and the service was top notch!!! I've been a loyal customer for years and will always be!
Have eaten here several times and it is consistently great. Best food you'll find in southwestern Maine. We'll be back for sure.
We appreciated allowing us to move our table into the corner of the back room. Initially there was a party of 6 next to us whom were somewhat loud. Since it was Valentines Day, we enjoyed the quieter location.
The experience was great! Service was slow, but it was Valentines Day so somewhat expected. Food and drinks were great. Music was nice and dining was intimate. Would definitely go there again.
This is our 4th time at the Oxford House. The service is always impeccable! Every morsel of food is out of this world. They have creative cocktails and appetizers. I can't recommend them highly enough.
This was the best restaurant we have found in the area. My only compalnt is that we don't live near enough. Check out the menu on line.
Very charming. Food was very good. It was a little loud in the dining room. We would go back if we are in the area again.
Another spectacular meal! Everything about the Oxford House Inn is perfect. The warm greeting at the door, the attentive, friendly service and the amazing food all combine for a special dining experience. I give the Oxford House Inn our highest recommendation!
Alway suburb food and service at The Oxford House
This was our second time back and it didn't disappoint! Food was excellent and the specialty cocktails were too! Great table in front of window with view of the snow falling. Very cozy! Will definitely go back!
Love this place because of its relaxing atmosphere and outstanding food and service! Went here for my birthday. Wife had stuffed Chicken breast and I had the Duck Breast Special with sweet potato mash and roasted Brussel sprouts, excellent! Shared a desert and bottle of wine. Don’t miss this place if you are in the area!
The food was amazingly well done! Would recommend to everyone!
Great old house, great food, great service. We’ll be back
Love the new menu! Enjoyed the downstairs dining area and all the local paintings . Really great time
I would not recommend the 5 course dinner. The entrees were very good but not exceptional. Overall value was not commensurate with the cost. The “crisp” dessert was very poor. I have no idea what they did to it. I have experienced some very nice and high quality dinners at the Oxford House but I am sorry to share the New Years 5 course is not among them.
We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy our New Year's Eve dinner as much as your previous experiences. We offer this five course menu once a year, and our chef's put a lot of thought into creating a special dining experience, which has become an annual favorite of many regular guests. You noted at your dinner that your Apple Skillet Crisp was not as warm as you would have liked and we sent out a new one. We regret that you were unsatisfied with other aspects of your dinner.
New Years Eve special for 4 people. Ambiance in room with Mountain view just ok. Once darkness sets in there is not much to see. Fireplace room is what I would recommend in the future. Overall a very good experience.
The food was great, the atmosphere was very nice, and the wait staff friendly and attentive. This is our favorite special occasion place to dine.
We enjoyed our dinner out with family!
The Oxford House Inn is one of our favorite restaurants. The service and food are always outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in or visiting the area.
One of our favorite dining spots in the MWV but less than spectacular this evening though still good. My hoisin duck was great as always but my wife’s steak (steak frites) was tough and dry (ordered medium) though not bad enough to complain. The service was a bit inattentive with long delays between courses and she never checked back on our dishes after delivery. Again, all was satisfactory but not up to the usual standards. Overall, we enjoyed our evening but, for a $100 dinner, it was disappointing. Oh yes ... one last issue. The brown paper on top of the table clothes was REALLY tacky and detracted greatly from the otherwise elegant setting.
Always outstanding, ALWAYS!
We know where we will be having dinner next Thanksgiving. !!
The three of us in our party were all perfectly satisfied. Will definitely return and refer friends!
Best dining in the area. Very quaint atmosphere and super friendly staff. Food is above average. Fantastic setting.
Have been to the Oxford House several times.. this visit proved to be very marginal for both food and service.., will have to think twice before returning!
Hello Larry, I see you have dined with us 8 times in the past, which is fantastic! This is your first negative review. I was hosting when you were here in our pub on Friday night, and nothing was brought to my attention. I would appreciate it if you would reach out to me directly to let me know where we erred in your opinion. We cannot fix what we are not aware of. I can't post my direct contact info here, but you can contact me through our website. Thank you Natalie Spak Owner/Innkeeper
We love this place- especially dining downstairs in Jonathan’s. It’s cozy and the food is always amazing. Great cocktail here- my Manhattan was perfect. We started with the Bibb lettuce salad. Delicious and fresh. Love the dressing. I had the special- cider braised veal short ribs. Yum! What a delightful combination of flavors. My wife had the Vegan Burger and loved it. The service is always friendly and attentive. We are lucky to have a restaurant of this caliber in the area. It never disappoints.
Yet another amazing meal to celebrate with at the Oxford House. Our favorite place for the best food and atmosphere with fine or casual dining! Everyone should go here!
A fantastic dinner as always
I would give this five stars except for the owner/manager who never learned that the customer is always right. My wife ordered ribs which were like chewing on wood. We sent them back. When I was paying the bill I noticed the ribs were still on the bill. I mentioned this to the server who said the owner refused to take them off because they were “prepared by the kitchen as they should be.” I asked to speak with her but she had left. I told the server to call her after which the owner charged her mind. I should not have had to go through this for something that any other owner or manager would have done immediately. Bad customer service.
Our first time, and worth a return visit. Both appetizers (pulled duck and scallion pancakes, squash pierogis) were excellent; both steaks were cooked exactly as we wished and very tender. Dining room was quiet, handsome, and in excellent condition as part of a 100-year old former mansion. Server was very attentive.
I can’t say enough good things about the food or the service. Everyone was kind, accommodating, and attentive. The food and drinks were creative and delicious. I’d recommend the braised beef dish for an entree, the sweet potato fries for an appetizer, and the bread pudding or homemade chocolate ice cream for dessert. The view of the mountains at sunset really made what was already a great dining experience, a spectacular one. I’ll definitely be back.
Great atmosphere. Service was splendid. Food choices were variable. Food was very good. Price was acceptable.
Our experience at the Oxford House combined great food with outstanding service and wonderful ambience. It was our first visit, and was a pleasant surprise. We will definitely be going again.
