    Birthday dinner at Oxbow - once again Oxbow knocked it out of the park! Another amazing meal with friendly and attentive service, wonderful food in a great atmosphere. The dining room was hopping with guests but the amazing staff was so attentive - Morgan is super knowledgeable and helpful! Our daughter had the pasta special - an inventive gnudi dish with a beautiful ramp sauce - unusual and so flavourful. We shared the duck and pork sausage rolls and the duck wings for starters. So good - the duck and pork sausage rolls have a rich and very flavourful filling in a gorgeous pastry and the grainy mustard and smoky ketchup were the perfect foils, bringing out a different flavour profile in each bite. Amazing! The duck wings are a family favourite - if you haven't had these succulent and flavourful wings in their tasty glaze, we highly recommend. I had the ribeye - perfection. Well-seasoned in a delicious jus with a contrasting crispy side and broccolini. So excellent! My husband enjoyed the halibut - thick piece of perfect white fish, the crust was a crunchy contrast and the delicate sauce set everything off so nicely. The food here is so consistently an interesting and high value experience. In combination with a cozy, comfortable dining room and wonderful service, we have a great experience every time!

    Exceptional food and amazing/attentive service! Our server, Morgan, was a true gem...knowledgeable about every menu item, and able to accommodate my dietary restrictions with no issues. The Happy Hour (between 5-6:00 pm) gives you a menu of appetizers at a reduced rate, so we ordered nearly everything! Sweet potato hummus with short rib (very tender), arugula salad with candy walnuts, duck wings (exceptional), warmed olives, and beef tartare with potatoes. Morgan gave us each a complimentary glass of champagne to toast our wedding anniversary. We couldn't finish everything, so Morgan and other servers brought our leftover plates to our room with additional cutlery so we could nibble the rest during the rest of the evening. It was a wonderful experience with rare exceptional and friendly service!

    Went for Afternoon Tea and very impressed. We’ve done these at some of the other common venues that do these. Was very impressed with the selection of food, teas and optional extras. In comparison, the price was per person was comparable but the food better in quality and variety than the others. We were told it was one of the first times they’re offering this, so hopefully it picks up. Would be our top choice in the city for doing this again.

    Wonderful spot for afternoon tea. Service was personable and authentic. Would only suggest obtaining bone china teapots to amp the experience.

    Everything was delicious, especially the briche and brie "small plate" we started with. I was a little disappointed that only the matcha version of the creme brulee was available (I would have preferred the standard creme brulee) but the match creme brulee was very tasty also.
