“Ursine dining on the square”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Not my first visit! I love the atmosphere and the food. The fried oyster appetizer was fabulous. Perfectly cooked. The salad was perfect and my sea bass was beautifully cooked. I do not often order sea bass, but I am so glad I did! We will return!

“Consistently good”
Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

Treated out of town friends here on their first Oxford visit. The restaurant lived up to our expectations expressed to our friends beforehand. The sea bass and salmon were favorites. The warm mushroom salad was a hit with all of our group. The salads are large, so we split them. The wait staff was extremely willing to accommodate this request and brought each salad on a separate plate, a small but noticeable nice touch. Our friends loved this restaurant. So do we.

“So Romantic”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

My boyfriend and I visited this place for Valentines day. Make reservations in advance, because they seemed very busy. The food was amazing, though pricey. The atmosphere is extremely romantic and you can even have flowers sent to your table for your date.

“Close to Perfect”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The fried oyster appetizer had a crispy batter and the oysters were perfectly cooked and lightly topped with an excellent sauce. The finglerling potatoes and roasted tomatoes were a spot-on compliment to the expertly cooked and glazed grilled salmon. The shirmp and grits were tasty and spicy. Add nice drinks and well timed service and I had a meal to remember.
