“Promising New Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We went to this restaurant soon after it changed from its previous incarnation. The service was excellent, and we were very impressed with the food. My chicken caesar salad was one of the best I've had in Eugene, with warm, freshly grilled chicken on top and a dressing that wasn't overpowering. My dining partner had fish that was well prepared and seasoned--quite delicious. We will definitely go here again.

“Really great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

I was never a fan of Sfizio, but the new Ox and Fin is wonderful. The same great decor, a similar, but improved, menu and wonderful food. The grilled zucchini sandwich was amazing. Our waiter (Alex, I believe) was helpful, attentive and very professional. He not only asked us if he could split the check for my friends and me, he split it down to the penny. I definitely plan to go back for another lunch and I am anxious to try out their dinner menu. Welcome to Eugene Ox and Fin!

“not impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

The ambience was great, nice spot for outdoor dining. The service was poor and the meal was adequate at best. Had their steak daily special and it was tough and fairly tasteless. Might give them another chance with a different dish.

“Nicely Re-vamped Osteria Sfizio Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

The same owners, staff and physical facility as Osteria Sifizio, and some of the same items on the menu. So basically a name and menu change, and they lowered their prices. They lost some of the more eclectic Italian menu items and added some Americano/Northwest items that will be more popular. The menu execution is excellent as well as the service. The setting is a mall - but during good weather the restaurant opens out into the courtyard with trees and a pleasant setting and there are outside tables. The interior is beautiful - nice woods, tables and lighting - obviously a considerable amount of money went into that when they originally built this restaurant - and nothing has changed with that part - mostly a menu makeover. In talking with them about this transition they indicated that they will rotate items from their original menu into this context occasionally. It will be nice to have variety and some old favorites be available. The staff is attentive without being smothering. This is one of the better restaurants in Eugene and with the price changes (the rest of the high-end restaurants in Eugene should be doing this as well) its a pretty good value. Oh - and a nice wine list and a full bar is available. Good place for an after work drink and apps.
