Had yet another fabulous mean at the Red Ox last night. I have to wonder whether some of the bad reviews on here are legitimate - I would give it 6 stars if I could.
First, the portion sizes are NOT small. I had the mac and cheese and my husband had the pork belly. Both were generous portions for an appetizer - so much so that we were barely able to finish our mains. My husband always has the pork belly and once again it did not disappoint. The mac and cheese was very interesting - spaetzle in a cheese sauce.
I had the beef tenderloin. It came with mushroom bread pudding and a vegetable. The only complaint I have was that I asked for it to be blue rare, and it was just rare. This is something I have encountered in other restaurants. I wonder if they overcook it because they do not believe that I mean it. While I prefer blue rare, I can eat it rare as well so did not send it back and I am not sorry about that. It was excellent.
My husband had the duck and it was fabulous too. They change this dish up every year or so. It was a creative dish - had a lavender glaze and also was spiced with cumin (the menu does not mention the cumin which I think is a mistake because it was quite unexpected). Again, the portion size was more than adequate.
We were too full for a full desert so the waitress kindly brought us two scoops of salted caramel ice cream at my request.
The wine list here is always excellent.
The meal came to just over $100 without wine and was very good value for the money. I highly recommend this place.
