Creative but good?

I might not have come here since the owner/chef is the same at Boure. The menu is just amped up. Everything was good, just not memorable. Tile fish, crab salad, mussels, duck confit, grilled cauliflower and hummus were eaten but there were no oohhs and aahhs. Prepare to drop some $$$ here. A... read more

I tried the braised pork belly based on a previous recommendation and was not disappointed. Delicious. Even the rolls/cornbread served with all meals were worth the trip. I didn't realize this establishment was listed in the nations

We made a day trip to Oxford, Mississippi square not knowing what to expect. So glad we found this restaurant! The food, service and ambiance were all amazing! We loved the grilled brussel sprouts appetizer! I could have eaten another for my main course! My husband had grilled shrimp salad and I had a Caesar salad. Both were excellent! All... More

I guess my standards are higher since I am from the New Orleans area but we were very dissapointed at the high prices and low quantity and quality of the food at City Grocery. We have given it more than one chance but always the same results ....

Nothing to dislike at all! Be sure to reserve, though. This is a genuinely superb dining experience.We went for lunch (fyi, they close at 2:30 until dinner). We had several appetizers, all excellent, and then the dish our friends from PA had said we

We were at City Grocery for a rather late dinner, having arrived in Oxford later than we had planned; so the restaurant was not crowded or at all loud. The waitress, Sarah, was wonderful, and the food delicious. I had the soft-shelled crab special, which was spicy and luscious; my wife had the shrimp and grits, as we had been... More

While staying in Oxford we went out to dinner 3 times, with friends who live there, and this was the best of the 3 places. An interesting and diverse menu - tasty shrimps and grits - as well as beer and wine. Good service. Not exceptional (or cheap), but certainly recommended.

Another great dinner in Mississippi. We were expecting great music, great history and great literature... and thought that it would be a stroke of luck if we got anything but great B-B-Q in the food category. Chalk up another great meal. The set up is a perfect Southern Bistro. Since it was Spring break we had an easy time getting... More

Had Duck breast with sweet potato risotto, quail and braised vegetables and very light sauternes creme caramel....all delicious. The noise level was intense unfortunately and we couldn't speak to eachother, but we loved the meal and will go back.
