Oxley Estate Winery
Five couples meeting for a nice evening dinner. Sat outside under a tent on patio. Beautiful evening with music comp,teed the evening.
Everything was good except the live band was a little too loud. It was hard to have conversations. Round tables would also be good for groups of 6 and 8.
Will be bringing friends next visit to celebrate their anniversary
It is so beautiful to sit on the patio, look at the hostas, sip wine and eat fabulous Lake Erie perch. My favorite one is the Wowza. We know there are a lot of amazing places to eat in this area, but every time we come down from St Thomas we always end up at Oxley. The service is also second to none. Don't forget to try the soup, it is always sublime. I like to visit in summer, but I love to visit in fall, when the fireplace is going. If you are coming down with a beer drinker, don't despair. There are a lot of fabulous local brews on tap. Try the one with blood orange in it from The Grove in Kingsville. It was amazing. Finally, for the first time, we tried a Bloody Caesar. It is worth the drive from Elgin County!
Amazing! Can’t wait to return
Perch was excellent, and service was attentive and helpful on a beautiful evening on the patio.
overall, very impressive...
could have had a little extra attention, as we stayed for a few minutes following the dinner - for example, no refill for coffee was offered
as we did have wine, this would have been appreciated
otherwise very nice experience
We went for the oysters. Unfortunately we were told that they were only allowing a dozen per person and only a half a dozen per person at a time. We usually both eat at least two dozen. But, the meal was fantastic. Everyone has to try their donuts for dessert. And get a full order each, because after the first bite you are not going to want to share the rest of it.
Had the potential to be an excellent meal. However, the part of the quiche was burnt. It was covered with salad, so did not notice it right away. Desert was good but expensive ($11).
It was our first time there and we would definitely go back. We have recommended it to others.
This very lovely winery with restaurant, is the perfect setting for summer evening outdoor dining. We have also had the opportunity to be seated indoors in the late fall. This was equally impressive. Love the ambiance. Food was fantastic. Hot plates! Our entire group agreed , nothing worse than receiving your plate cold...
As always, great place! Sandra is friendly and knowledgeable, with perfect recommendations. The good was, as always delicious. Perch, hen, trout - all good. And perfect wine pairings. Lovely patio.
The food was delicious! The place is beautiful and the servers were great!
Dinner very good, a little on the expensive side but tasty. Wine & drinks... excellent. Our waitress pleasant, helpful. We were dining on a Howl at the Moon night, so had entertainment, Midlife Jazz... very good. Great night had by all.
Server Kendra neglected to bring glass of ice that was requested twice; finally received by server who delivered charcuterie board. Board was sparse (compared to North 42) and lacked homemade mustard which was highlighted in verbal description...Dijon mustard was offered when omission was voiced because you were "out of homemade". Also, 12 grapes were the only fruit. Our desert came in a very dry, stale, crumbly meringue with about a half-cup of blueberry sauce. Previous weekend visits have been excellent. Hopefully just an off weekday when the kitchen was focused on preparations for Howl at the Moon
Another sunny wonderful afternoon at Oxley
Beautiful setting and great food. Chef Aaron is excellent and creative.
Great for lunch or dinner. Need to be patient when busy. Beer pairs better with the spicy duck wings then the Pinots!
Absolutely fantastic. From the service to the food. The oysters were outstanding, the hand ground horseradish a wonderful and unique touch. The ribeye steak was fantastic, the sauce was spectacular! The trout was spicy and perfectly cooked. And the presentation was spectacular. Our server, Stewart, was knowledgeable and very helpful with the selections. The wines were outstanding.
Service good but slow. Food excellent.
Spent an evening nestled in among the vineyards enjoying the incredible wine and food ... appetizers, mains, desserts, coffee...and tranquil setting of Oxley Winery. Great Service. Picked up some of our favourite bottles before heading home. Then enjoyed field after field of fireflies all the way home. A perfect summer night! Definitely will return. Highly recommend!
Beautiful grounds, lovely setting, excellent wine and food, good service.
Always a great way to spend a Sunday with friends! Food, service, wine, spirits, ambiance- a total package in a beautiful setting!👍👍
Our favourite Essex County winery for dining even though they tend to be on the pricey side and limted menu. While server was attentive, service was rather slower than expected and lunch dragged on.
Nothing to report not impressed with appetizers special, dinner was very good
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
