Good food, poor service

I was at the Ox this past wednesday night for dinner and drinks with a coworker. It was a nice day, so we decided to sit out of the patio. At first the service was quite good, but once the food came our waitress disappeared for at least 30 minutes without returning. There were also a group of off... read more

I've eaten at the Ox on three different occasions. They serve some of the best pizza that I've ever had. The crust is thin, which I like but I know that not everyone does. The servers are friendly, and we didn't really really have any issues.

Our experience here was mixed. The service was ok, not great. The wine list was interesting, only ontario wines. We did enjoy the wine we selected. The pizza was good. I had the pork belly and was genuinely disappointed. Two tiny pieces of pork on top of a tiny mac and cheese for $24. Felt totally ripped off, especially since... More

Divided into sections. Front is a cafe setting where people sipping coffee and working on computers hang. Middle section is restaurant seating and a bar. Back section is seating and an outdoor patio. People were already enjoying the warmer Spring weather out on the patio (still too cold for me). The food was good. I had the elk burrito. A... More

We were shopping at the bookshelf and were starting to get hungry and found this little gem right next door. The service was great and the food was fantastic! we got a charcuterie plate with the chef's choice of cheese. The flavors were impressive and the presentation was beautiful! Cannot wait to go back!

while our server explained that 2 employees had walked out on the job, we had noticed a steady decline in service for quite some time. I had called ahead to make sure that mussels were available, and was assured that they were being served, just to be told when we were ordering that they hadn't been available for several weeks....

My friend and I wanted a quick bite before attending the cinema upstairs. Very slow , non attentive service. We shared salad and pizza and had to leave without being given our bill, we missed our show and were not impressed. The pizza crust was good, lots of choices of toppings. Decor is rustic, but service was lacking on a... More

I tried Ox for the first time last night. It is a very good restaurant committed to local foods and beverages and doing a great job at that. Our table had 2 pizzas - they were one of the best pizzas I have ever had. I had duck sausages as my main dish - It was fabulous. Overall, very unique... More

I've been visiting the Ox since it first opened and not once have I been disappointed by the food or the service. New menu items in and out depending on the season, fresh produce and fantastic meats. The cheese blocks are always the best and I absolutely love the olive plate!
