“Beautiful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We ate at the Ravine for the first time on "Tapas" night. One person in our party is vegan and although there were a couple of vegan options, we were surprised that upon request, they could not come up with something else from the kitchen. After all, they use local vegetables, so it seems that it would be easy to add a vegan option, if requested. I will say that there was a salad and baba ganoush that was delicious and worked for the evening, but we would have ordered more courses, if there were more choices.

Hi there,

Thanks for taking the time to review ravine, and your input is valued. I told your server to mention to your table that, with a bit of notice, we can create a whole vegan meal for our guests, as we have done repeatedly in the past with our other clients. Maybe next time we can accommodate you!

“Great anniversary dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We had a great meal this evening. I enjoyed the striped bass though my husband said the pasta with veggies was good but a bit too much of the same thing (and VERY creamy). The croquets were amazing. Bibb salad was very good but eggplant appetizer (with naan) not so good. Service was excellent and we had a memorable time. We hope to go back!

“Eclectic Fresh Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We went as a group of 12 for dinner recently. The Ravine has a unique rustic vibe and excellent service. We tried the Strawberry Lemon Drop - made with muddled berries and strips of lemon rind. It was excellent. We also had the flatbread/dipping oil that comes with dinner, it was very good also. I had the tenderloin mini burger as a first course. It was great and just the right amount for an appetizer. For dinner, I chose a seasonal dish - latin bbq pork. It was very different, but also very good. I also tried the filet which was excellent. If I could give 4 1/2 starts, that would be my rating.

“Best, freshest menu in Oxford.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Eaten here many times, and never disappointed. Owners live upstairs, always there. Excellent brunch, lunch and dinner.

“One of your top 2 or 3 choices in Oxford”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

The Ravine stands out even among the best restaurants in Oxford. The quality of the food, service and atmosphere more than make up for the fact that it is not on or near the square. It is well worth the few extra minutes it will take you to drive down South Lamar. The fixed price menu on Sunday is a great deal too.
