We arranged a birthday weekend in York and had dinner at Oxo's on the Mount. We had a very enjoyable evening and the food and service were excellent. We were very well looked after - there was a lovely atmosphere in both the restaurant and bar, enhanced by the candles in the restaurant. We would highly recommend Oxo's.

I booked a table for my partner & I at Oxo's for New Years Eve, we wanted a nice meal before meeting up with friends for drinks later in the evening. It was a set menu for New Year with 2 choices for each course, we were a little concerned we would feel a bit isolated in the restaurant just been the 2 of us as we weren't sure if there would be large groups celebrating. As soon as we entered the hotel we were greeted by the owner who showed us into the restaurant and took our coats, we were then invited into the bar where the staff chatted to us and made us feel really welcome. There was a varied mix of diners from small groups to couples and we just fitted in nicely! The restaurant has a lovely traditional feel about it, from the beautiful candelabra's to the staff who can't do enough to make your your evening special. It had a lovely ambience about it and the service was almost like going back to how great renowned restaurants used to look after their guests. I read an earlier review criticising the old decor in the restaurant and I do agree the toilets are a bit dated, but it almost adds to the charm of this place and if you have chance after your meal have a little wander in the hotel reception rooms as it's just a lovely charming old building. The food was fantastic, from the amuse bouche to the dessert, beautifully presented and tasted delicious and we were certainly full up at the end of our meal. The service was excellent, the staff very attentive, when we asked for a 30 min breather for dessert this was accommodated and our dessert & drinks were served right on que, the restaurant management are certainly running a tight ship here to make sure everything is just perfect. We dined at Star in the City several weeks ago and whilst the food was good, the service however was not and Oxo's outshone with both their food and service. We didn't stay for the New Year as we were meeting friends but Oxo's certainly made the first few hours of our New Year's Eve very special and we will be return very soon.

What lovely comments and very much appreciated. We have taken on board your constructive comments about the décor and have in fact had large areas of the hotel painted during the last few weeks in addition to the ladies toilets having a complete makeover. Whether a special evening with friends or a quiet meal for two our aim is to provide beautiful fresh food with professional service, and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed this service for part of your new years eve celebrations with us in Oxo's. We hope you shall come back and dine with us again and hopefully join us, with your friends, for the full new years eve later this year

During late November we booked a table at Oxo's for a special 70th birthday celebration. The food was excellent and venue was so relaxing. For the quality of food the prices felt very reasonable. The presentation of the food was also excellent and the service was superb; it was a lovely suprise when the staff brought out a birthday cake, most kind indeed! During our time here we certainly felt we were very well looked after by the staff who were most attentive. We could not of wished for a better place to celebrate a special birthday. I'm local to the area and certainly would love to go back again to Oxo's.

We are delighted you came to celebrate such a special birthday in our beautiful restaurant and our token gesture of the birthday cake was a pleasure. Our food is all freshly prepared using locally sourced produce where available and our aim is to provide attentive but not intrusive service. We hope to tempt your taste buds back to eat with us again

We recently held our wedding reception at Oxo's on the Mount and we couldn't have wished for better food and service for ourselves and our 30 guests. We wanted a 'small and intimate' wedding celebration and Oxo's delivered the perfect package. We chose prosecco and canapes for arrival and a lovely 3 course meal with rump of Nidderdale lamb or chicken with chorizo risotto for mains and both were beautiful, many of our family and friends commented on the lovely food and surroundings of the restaurant. We + some of our guests stayed the night at the hotel, the rooms, breakfast and attention to detail were excellent. The staff were friendly, polite and made us feel so welcome. Thank you for our perfect day!

We had our works Xmas do here and were most impressed. Quality of food and service far beyond what I have come to expect at these events.
It was a more expensive venue than others we looked at, but it was well worth the little extra.
The table was also beautifully decorated.
We done to all concerned
