City Grocery is great for special occasions. Management and servers assure that you will be paid special attention - on this occasions a candle in the dessert. Service is always attentive and professional. We had Whole Wheat Fettuccini and Roasted Duck. House Salad and a Caesar Salad preceded the entrees. Everything was beautifully presented and flavorful.

Hands down one of the best meals I have ever eaten. The spot is small- so DO make a reservation. The tables are crowded but I think it added to the overall feel of the place. We ate slow, pairing each course with wine. Started off with the soft shell crab special- melt in your mouth delicious. Next we had... More

This place is not cheap, but that's OK because the food is excellent. It fills up quickly with reservations, so beware. If you can't get a table, ask about eating at the bar. We did and had a wonderful time,

Sure, I know this place gets great reviews. My food was expensive yet bland and boring. The two don't usually go together. Nothing special about the food on my friends plates either. With a group of girls, you always get to taste everyone's food. There are much better places in oxford. Although if everyone goes here for dinner, my favorites... More

Food was good but not great. Service was good. Great location to walk around the square. Still one of the better places to eat in Oxford

I can honestly say I've never had a bad experience here. An anniversary favorite for my wife and I, today's visit was with my daughter before touring Ole Miss. Service was excellent, the food fantastic.

We were in town for 2 days to ride the tanglefoot trail and after a horrendous experience at another Oxford restaurant on Friday night, our Saturday evening dinner was perfect in every way. Our server Jennifer was knowledgeable about the menu and very professional. The heirloom salad was delicious fresh and big enough to split. Our entrees were delicious. I... More

My wife and I dined here Saturday, July 2. Judging by the reviews and my wife's recommendation, I had high hopes of an excellent meal. I was sorely disappointed. We were seated immediately upon arrival even though we arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation. The atmosphere and decor was fairly run on the mill for the Oxford square, exposed... More

I have nothing bad to say about City Grocery. After living here a year and never eating at City Grocery, my girlfriend and I decided to spend our anniversary dinner there and we were not disappointed. The server and hostesses were so friendly and helpful when making suggestions. The recommended wine was excellent as were the dishes we ordered. I... More

I was there for a corporate business meeting. I went with some locals there for lunch. I had the shrimp and grits. They were AWESOME! I would advise anyone coming to Oxford to eat there!

Thank Phillip W
