I will admit that my first experience at Ox was a little off-putting. In fact, I did not stay to eat that first time. It was a Friday night at 6pm in Winter, a very rude lady barged in front of me and was seated before me and my dad, and then we were told that it would be about a 90-minute wait. No go. This girl gets hangry. So we left and I made a mental note to never come on a Friday night (they don't take reservations for small parties- I hope that changes soon). Visit #2 was Wednesday night- the night before Valentine's Day. Arriving at 5:30pm my mom and I were given an hour wait, but told that we could wait in the Whey Bar right next door- the restaurant would call me when our seat was ready. I can handle waiting a bit for dinner if a drink and some nibbles are involved.

My verdict? I love this place. I love sitting at the grill and watching the guys prepare all of the meats. I love that this is another place where dishes are served family-style and are meant to be shared. I love the amazing food and the equally delicious cocktails. And I really love the desserts. Go! Just try to make it early on a weekday night.
