Ox was recommended by our friends in Portland. It's their number one for special occasions. In addition, the fact that Chef Denton and his wife were the recent recipients of the James Beard award for Best Chef Northwest, this was the restaurant I was most...More

Our Portland friends took us to Ox on our last night in Oregon. What a meal! My husband and I agreed that Ox was the highlight of our eating experiences in Portland. I was a bit worried when I was told that this was Argentine...More

The place is crowded. We didn't make reservation in advance but still manage to get the counter seats at the counter. Food were delicious, steak is a bit under my expectation but still not bad. We would returned again if we have a chance and...More

We heard that waits can be very long -- at 5:30 pm on a Monday we only waited 15 minutes. The four of us thought the foods were good, but certainly not worth much of a wait, and we agreed that Portland has better restaurant...More

My first review of Ox was a well-deserved "terrible" rating. While the food was excellent, the wait - 3.5 hours - was ridiculous. However, the manager compensated us with a $50 gift certificate and an additional course. Since then, my son and I have eaten...More

When you roll in at 10:54pm at a restaurant that closes at 11pm, and they happily seat you? You know the joint has got the right service bones. We actually left a John Mayer concert before the encore so we could score some late night...More

I only wish I lived within a days’ drive of Portland so that I could dine at Ox regularly, as it is simply one of the 10 best restaurants I have ever enjoyed (and that’s truly saying something as dining out is my avocation). The...More

We went, we savored, we liked, and we can't wait to go back. We had been wanting to visit this restaurant for a long time, and finally met the objective. It did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to sit right next to where the...More

WOW! They don't take many reservations and you're wait could be long, but it's well worth it. My steak was prepared perfectly. The side dishes were all wonderful. The service was really good too.
