Oxo's On the Mount
Overall a good evening but for a couple of quibbles. Service was a bit odd as when we got there there was nobody to greet or serve us for at least 10 mins but it was good after that. Food is generally delicious though the steak was strangely dry even though it was definitely cooked medium as ordered (still pink in the middle) so perhaps the steaks had been frozen. Happy to go again though.
The ambiance, the service, The food were all very good. We have booked for New Year’s Eve but there was no one left in the restaurant by 11:30 so we left just before which was a bit disappointing.
A splendid 80th celebration for my wife. Great table and ambience with discreet attendance from 2 young waitresses who knew to say when they were unsure and find the right answer.
All agreed the food excellent
Great meal. Great friendly staff. Was a great night.
We decided to eat here during our stay at the hotel. York was quite busy and we were struggling to find somewhere to eat to celebrate my partners birthday. The reviews looked good so I booked us a table.
Now I would come back to stay at the hotel just for the food, it was beatiful.
very expensive for nice food but not outstanding food
The food was amazing the presentation was lovely the staff were very friendly and could not do enough for you great evening
We have been to Oxo's many times. The food is of a very high standard and the service is always very good.
I think the website looks better than the restaurant. The service was good but the food was dreadful and it’s in need of redecoration. Not a place I’d go to again.
Great value fish Friday menu. Lovely starter, beautiful main course of lemon sole, crab gnocchi and crab sauce. Skipped dessert but friends all enjoyed their desserts, surf and turf, fish and chips and starters of tempura prawns. All in all excellent
Great food and host. Will be back next year !!!!!!
We keep Oxo's for special occasions. It's just a little off the city centre so benefits by being quieter and more exclusive. It has a wonderful, traditional atmosphere with a very cosy bar for pre-dinner drinks right next to the restaurant. The staff are welcoming, friendly, helpful and eager to make the whole dining experience an absolute joy. The menu (available on-line) is concise, although there's certainly something for everyone, and everything is cooked to perfection. Prices reflect the quality of service and the food, as would be expected but still by no means prohibitive. Overall, I can certainly recommend Oxo's to anyone looking for a relaxing, personal dining experience, perhaps for a special occasion or maybe even just as a well deserved treat.
Had a lovely meal whilst on a few days in york and would recommend to anyone wishing to have a lovely meal with very good ,and friendly service. Excellent value for money also. And it was our anniversary and they brought us out a lovely cake, very special.
It is refreshing to see this restaurant starting to make waves.
The food is excellent, and the chef really knows his stuff.
The staff are personable and friendly and the place is really comforting and welcoming.
Great menu, we both had turbot as so rare to see on a menu. Nice amouse bouche. Interesting wine list. Friendly prompt service. We always come here when we are in york
Sunday lunch at Oxo's on the Mount is excellent value with friendly service. There is a good choice of starters and special efforts were made for our grandchildren. The portions are substantial and the main course roast was cooked as we liked it. Vegetable choice was good and enjoyed by all. Desserts were attractive and delicious. We would certainly recommend it for family lunch and will return.
It was a nice restaurant and the staff were lovely although I was expecting it to be a bit more special.We were only offered a menu of the day not a full al a carte menu.Which was slightly dissapointing as we went for a special anniversary meal.The food was very nice but I was expecting a bit more.
All three of us had a lovely meal here, which was only a ten minute walk from the apartment we were staying in-so perfect for us to enjoy a drink with dinner.
Although the online menu shows the a la crate and the set menu, it doesn’t show the Sunday set menu so maybe they could add this to their website going forward?
We all thought the food was lovely, however my only minus would be my veggie options were a little smaller, especially the goats cheese starter versus the black pudding one! Not a huge issue but perhaps having two goats cheese crostinis rather than one and more salad would’ve made it better. The risotto was lovely but again, versus the Sunday lunches was a little lighter and I was grateful to add the veg that came with the other two meals!
The service was great, greeted by a really friendly gentleman who gave us time to pick our food and wine so it was lovely to not feel rushed, this carried on with the service from others throughout, so made for a relaxing dinner.
We’d happily come back and I’d recommend Oxos to anyone wanting a relaxed meal with delicious food.
Excellent place not much to look at outside but when you get in it’s really nice food was fab and service and staff were really friendly would definitely recommend
A surprise, lived in York for 20 years and hadn’t come across it, walking distance from race course, booked with open table and got in after enor races. Will now come again , we’ll done
First and foremost, the food is excellent and there are some great wine choices. It's a good place to go for any sort of foodies or people who enjoy dishes a little out of the ordinary, or people who enjoy high-quality ingredients cooked well. The serving staff are attentive and friendly, and we had a wonderful time there.
Friendly staff with options to choose from all menus. Prompt service, food was of a high standard. Enjoyable evening, I will be recommending this restaurant to friends and colleagues.
Nice spot. Nice service. Lovely food.
Excellent experience from start to finish. Plenty of drink and food options and the staff were very good and friendly.
The food was absolutely perfect and they couldn’t have been more helpful or courteous.
Very good, have visited previously and again service/Food and overall experience was very good and recommended.
We ate here on the first night of our stay at the mount. We were told on arrival that we were the only diners booked for the evening. This did not bother us as it was a Sunday eve and had been packed at lunchtime. The food was excellent, especially the crayfish starter and the Hake was beautifully cooked . Service was very personal, but we were the only diners.
Very attentive staff as we were the only diners. Wine tired, been open too long. Food nice but not special. Service great fun.
Top food. Great menu and wine list.
A annoyed I could not have a cocktail because the bar was too busy??
That said I will definitely eat at Oxo again.
Everything was well done. The lighting was a bit bright in the back of the restaurant.
Good service, good food, good atmosphere and good location
As always - everything about Oxo was wonderful. It really is my / our favourite "go to" place for Birthdays / anniversaries / special nights out. Certainly a little more expensive than the popular eateries in town - but so, so much better. Atmosphere, food, wine, service - can't be faulted. A really nice touch was the appearance of a Birthday cake for my Wife when I just mentioned in passing that it was her Birthday - very much appreciated. I've given it moderate on the quiet score rather than the usual quiet simply because of a table of elderly American tourists who spoiled it a tiny bit that night.
We visited Oxos for our mum's 80 th birthday and it was fabulous. The staff were the most brilliant part of the visit. They couldn't do enough, particularly the head waiter who was wonderful. The food was great the staff couldn't do enough and we had a lovely evening. Highly recommended.
Oxo’s is a wonderful restaurant, We had a fantastic meal topped off with great service and attention to detail.
Compliments to the staff.

We booked a table here solely because the location was convenient - but what a pleasant surprise it turned out to be! Delicious, beautifully presented, wonderfully-conceived food that you can tell a lot of thought and love went into. The staff were attentive without being overbearing and every dish was delicious and gorgeously executed. I plan to start coming here all the time.
We dined on 19 April on a stay at the wonderful Royal Mount Hotel. What a great addition this restaurant is.
Although our starter of goats cheese failed to impress for the price the rest of our meal was outstanding.
The guinea fowl was lovely and the confit leg, hasselback potatoes, charred & pureed carrots, creamed savoy cabbage & pancetta, garlic jus were perfect and flavoursome. My wife had the Special main of salmon which was excellent.
For Desert I had the Orange Marmalade and Nutmeg Brioche Butter Pudding which was one of the best B&B puddings I have had in a restaurant that came close to my mum's. The crème anglais and vanilla bean ice cream were delicious
Food was excellent, tables set apart just enough not to hear other conversations, staff very attentive and friendly
Service was over the top and intrusive. I hardly saw my dining companion at the meal...always a waiter/waitress in between us taking plates and cutlery away. Sometimes before you'd finished! Didnt ask if you wanted bread etc to be left just went to take it away. No time to digest food between courses. One plate off another on. I did not enjoy my steak which came rare when Id asked for medium. My friend did enjoy the seafood starter and fish main though. Lovely cosy bar area for drinks before/ after meal.
Just relax the service a bit...trying too hard and it ruined the dining experience for me.
Delicious food packed with flavour and beautifully presented. Service was outstanding
Oxo's provided a very nice Mother's Day lunch that was much appreciated. The Lemon Sole in particular was excellent.
