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.

Exposed brick, right level of lighting, had the ribeye which was wonderful. Great flavor and very tender. Service was excellent. I would go here again.

Ox has a pop up grill for the summer from 11-2 and while I liked more chorizo sandwhich with chimichuri, it was a little spendy at $12, the albacore was $14 and the eggplant was 10 or 12. You can get the same thing for...More
