We discovered this Oxford Social while staying in Sydney. We booked a reservation for early Friday night. The place is a bit small and it's easy to walk past if you're not paying attention. It was early so it was not crowded but was still a pleasant and casual atmosphere. We've been in Australia now for a couple of weeks... More

We ate here on a Saturday night. The restaurant is small but tastefully decorated with very pleasant efficient staff. I had one of the specials for starters, Mediterranean scallops, which was scallops with chorizo, and was one of the best starters I have ever had.

Without a doubt the best dining in Sydney. After 4 trips over the past 12 years eating in many highly reviewed restaurants this was a total surprise. Very imaginative food, perfectly served.

The menu is small but the food was amazing. Complex but well judged. If you can go to Oxford street for this venue. Well worth the visit

Took a friend out for dinner for his birthday, on the Monday night of Mardi Gras. The service here is without fault and the food was pretty great too! No downside if you ask me, it was close to perfect!

Read about Oxford Social before leaving U.S. and saw it had great reviews. It was even better than I expected. Greeted by owner and service was friendly and prompt throughout the evening. Husband had beef filet, which he said was excellent. I had the pork belly and it was outstanding. One of the best meals I've ever had, anywhere. The... More

I manage to find the restaurant after half hour searching the map. Attend well by the staff. The food was great especially the steak. The environment was warm and comfortable. Is a place should visit when travel to sydney.

The atmosphere was charming. The server was friendly and very welcoming. The prawn appetizer was perfectly displayed and extremely tasteful. The atmosphere was perfect for having a dinner meeting and all of our entrées were expertly prepared. Definitely worth the effort to find.
