Oxley Estate Winery
When booking, it was not mentioned that a food order had to be placed by 4:00 - rushed for a 3:45 reservation.
Charcuterie board was small for the price and quiche was under cooked.
The reservation asked for occasion as celebrating a birthday then nothing was done/mentioned.
Very relaxed atmosphere. Food is excellent and the chef will work around any dietary issues of you inform them.
A beautiful evening spent at Oxley Estate Winery. The oysters are to die for...!
We booked and attended the howl at the moon dinner experience. Music was excellent, food (perch) was terrific. Beautiful setting. Will definitely return.
The Howl at the Moon event was top-notch, which is what we have come to expect from Oxley Estate Winery. We were a party of four, and all entrees and wine choices were absolutely delicious. Entertainment by the Oh Chay's was fantastic. We look forward to our next visit!
Food and wine was wonderful!! Too bad it was raining would have been nice to sit outside...they've created a beautiful setting there!!
We have unfortunately noticed a decrease in the quality of the food. Do not understand the reason for deep frying short rib. The bread on the charcuterie board was mouldy.
Duck wings are as good as they say. Really loved the smoked mustard potatoes. My wife's steak was cooked perfectly. Had the auxerrois and the cabernet franc (as suggested) and they paired nicely. I'd recommend the auxerrois with the oysters and duck. The eclair should have been sweeter. (It's dessert!)
We ate on the covered patio in a light rain. It was nice and quiet (but not empty). The outdoor fire is a good idea.
Great food, outside fire, and wine! Our server was very kind and efficient!
Great food & friendly, competent staff.
Awesome place! Food ,service and atmosphere. Of course you must buy wine to go.
Alway provide great food and service, this is our "GO TO" winery in Essex County.
Lunch at Oxley is always a delight. In the late spring and summer, their tented patio is the absolute best. The pickerel and the burger are both top notch, but if you go during asparagus season, the miso asparagus appetizer is NOT to be missed.
We have taken family and friends to Oxley Winery 4-5 times and have never been disappointed and on our last visit...for our 50th anniversary lunch...wouldn't you know we forgot our phones...our server Brooke was very gracious and snapped a few pix and forwarded them to us...we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and the atmosphere and will be back soon...Jim and Carol...
Favorite place ever!!! Best food, atmosphere, fireplace, wine! Love it
Atmosphere was nice, wait staff friendly but could have been a bit more engaged. Food and wine was good, excellent presentation.
Excellent service, food, wine and atmosphere.
We enjoy going to Oxley for the atmosphere. Beautiful location on the lake. We ordered some drinks and the charcuterie board for lunch. The drinks were unique summer selections which we enjoyed. We've had the charcuterie board before and it was full of a variety of items. This time, we found it pretty generic in selection. Meaning, we could get the same thing at most restaurants.
Excellent dinner as usual
Great atmosphere. Food is good but portions are slighty small for the price.
Our first time to the winery. Planning to return for one of the featured Howl at the Moon events and will bring friends!
Wonderful surprise as we’ve never been to this region before. Food was excellent, paired with nice wine. Fantastic warm service made us really feel welcome. Lovely! Highly recommend.
We love this place, never left here disappointed. We had oysters for our appetizer and the Cornish hens for dinner, the Chardonnay was recommended for pairing with it and it really enhanced the experience. My spouse was the only thing stopping me from licking my plate clean. We had no room for dessert but they sounded incredibly delicious. Our server Sandy was amazing very friendly and knowledgeable, it made our night out really special. We will most assuredly be back again.
My friends appreciated the soup and salad combo...very fairly priced.
The soup was a big hit.
One of my friends was very vocal about not wanting to come.
She told me that she was very happy with the food and service.. Yeah! !!
Excellent venue with delicious food attentive service for a truly unique dining experience!
Absolutely wonderful and Sandra, our server, was amazing. Love this place.
We did go on Mothers day so we expected it to be noisy and loud. But it was absolutely wonderful. The food was delicious, the service was great, & the wine was fantastic. The grounds are beautiful although we couldn't enjoy them due to the rain
Cant wait to go back!
I would reccomend Oxly winery when the weather is nice and you can take advantage of the property.
I would strongly suggest you look at the menu pricing and options before committing to have dinner.
We dined on Mothers day and the pricing was grossly inflated, very obvious they took advantage of the holiday and did not deliver on service or ambiance.
The wait staff were pleasant however dressed as tho they were serving in a diner rather a winery.
The wine flight we ordered did not seem like it was from newly or recently opened bottles so we stuck with beer.
I will say the food quality was good but way over priced.
Oxley is wonderful. The service is fast and the servers are so knowledgeable on their food and wine. The quiche was so fluffy it was like eating a cloud.
If you go on a holiday and sit upstairs expect it to be loud. This was the only downside to our experience but it can be expected when you go on one of the busiest weekends of the year. Having the ability to drink wine around the fire on the patio is an excellent addition to any outing.
Oxley Estate Winery is an overall winner and such a joy to visit! It has the nicest surroundings (classy but not uptight), beautiful patio and gardens, live music during the summer months and wonderful food & wine. We've been spending Mother's Day Lunch at Oxley for the past 3 or 4 years--everything combined makes for a very special outing with Mom and my sister. I highly recommend you give Oxley Estate Winery a try!
Wonderful way to spend mothers day! We enjoyed our visit and the wine!
Loved the service and great food. Headed over on Friday evening for the Oysters and Sticky Duck Wings and Wine of course. Totally enjoyable.
This is always my go to winery when going on the wine route. The atmosphere and service are outstanding.
I love that they offer a full bar for people who may not prefer wine.
The food is amazing. I would highly recommend the perch
Unfortunately our waitress was not very attentive to our table. Took awhile for us to get a drink and the menu. We eventually were able to put our order in. Then we waited and waited. We had to ask for our waitress so we could order another drink. She never came to check on us. Then we saw another table who had come in long after us get their meal before us. Again we had to ask for our waitress and she said our meal was coming. Again we waited and eventually we got our meal. She never apologized.
We were very disappointed in the service.
Friendly staff and excellent food. We’ll be back for sure.
We always love the food here. Every time we come here it’s always something new and amazing. Loved the carrot and cabbage soup and the perch was wonderful.
The food is always outstanding, the service is warm and friendly and the ambience is relaxed. Hands down, my favourite winery experience!
We thoroughly enjoyed our Good Friday meal at Oxley.
Went to Oxley winery for Good Friday fish the perch was very good the appetizers were very good waitress was friendly and prompt.
Good Friday lunch, my first time to visit the Winery and as I was told by our server Sarah, this was the first Good Friday event. The Pinot Gris was a perfect pairing to the Perch Platter and salads. I was offered a spoonful of my companions Roasted Vegetable Soup, but that was all she would share. Wrapped up with a bit of chocolate brownie, pavlova and a strong black coffee, perfection!
