We visited Ox six times before we could make it though the astounding wait times of 2+ hours. My son and I dropped by on a whim midweek and hit it at 7:15, just the right time for the tables to turn and only had to wait 45 minutes. By the time we were done, there were many open tables - so the key is to go later, rather than earlier, in my experience.
The minutes passed quite quickly in the charming bar behind the restaurant with two deliciously unusual cocktails and good conversation.
The food and the service once we were seated more than made up for our previously frustrating visits. Our server was personable, knowledgable and thorough, and had excellent suggestions for both food and wine. I wish every server in town had his professionalism.
It's not often that every single course from appetizer to main course is flawlessly paced and utterly delicious but it is at Ox. In particular, my rib-eye was cooked to perfection and meltingly delicious, one of the best I've ever eaten at any restaurant. It was every bit worth the wait ( all the waits!) and I cannot wait to go back.
