Great drinks and food. Little pricey, but what isn't. The bar staff knows how to make a great martini.

What a fantastic dinner at the Blue Ox. The pear salad with mixed greens, toasted hazelnuts, Vermont goat cheese and maple vinaigrette was very good and the wood grilled filet mignon served with asparagus, mashed potato and demi-glacé was unbelievably good - in fact, outstanding!!...More

Joined friends for dinner here last night. Excellent service, casually relaxed setting and, then, there was...the food! All my compatriots appeared to enjoy the shared appetizers and their entrees. I had the pan roasted cod over the tastiest risotto imaginable. Limited but excellent selection of...More

Pork tenderloin and sweet potatoes were excellent! The sticky toffee pudding with cinnamon ice cream was out of this world!

A busy Saturday night. Nice place. Very good food and service. A bit slow paced, but if that is the pace the kitchen can put out this quality it is worth the wait. An excellent wine while we slowed from our hectic daytime pace.

Wife and I had a perfect meal at the OX. I had the aged filet and my wife had the cod. We started with the hummus. One of the best meals I've ever had. Period.
