Oxo's On the Mount
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.
Great value, fabulous staff, recommended!
Couldn't fault the place. The staff were attentive and friendly. The food was amazing and the drinks were nice too. Would definitely go again!!! Thanks for a lovely time on my partners birthday.
This is a really nice restaurant in a hotel, a bit of a track from the
Excellent service, fabulous food and great friendly staff - not pretentious or stuffy. would definitely revisit if I went back to York
What can i say. From the moment we stepped through the doors we were made to feel very special. Guided to our seat and introduced to the waiting staff for the evening. We dined at 9pm and there wasn't many people left there but we were not made to feel rushed at all. Having been to several top restaurants across London over the past few years i have never received such a greater welcome, service and quality all round. The food was sublime, made extra special by the home baked bread served warm and fresh from the oven. The staff were so friendly and went above and beyond to help. Even ordering our return taxi home and making sure we didn't wait in the cold for it to arrive. The food was out of this world but the service definitely added and made the night.
Come here every time we stay in York. Great service, good menu and wine list. Friendly staff
Lovely meal but not cheap. Wine was not cheap either but went well with what we had. Nicely cooked and presented and lovely flavours.
We attended Oxo on the Mount for Sunday Lunch to celebrate my husbands Birthday.
The food was excellent as usual, always beautifully cooked fresh produce. The menu for Sunday Lunch has a choice of approximately 6 starters, mains and desserts.
The service is always outstanding without being intrusive.
I would highly recommend the Sunday Lunch and at £24 a head is excellent value for money.
Following the reviews I read about the Oxo I was expecting a more modern restaurant but found it very traditional.
We did however find the restaurant very comfortable, staff very friendly and helping with good knowledge of the menu and specials.
Excellent selection of wines to accommodate all tastes
The foods was excellent, cooked to perfection and presented beautifully on the plate.
Would definitely visit again when in York.
Nice welcome, excellent food and nice ambience. The drinks were a bit pricey and overall the bill was almost £60/head including some large gin and tonics. We met friends in York we hadn't seen for a few years so it was a special occasion which is what I would recommend this restaurant for.
First time at Oxo's. The food was very good and of very good quality / standard. Our only criticism was that the service was a bit too quick. You want to have a whole evening out and not be done and dusted by 9.30! There were lots of staff (compared to most places nowadays) which meant that things were efficient but a bit too quick.
We went based on reviews seen. We hadn't realised it was in an hotel and looked and felt rather old fashioned and not to our taste when we arrived - we wondered what we were doing there! But the staff were efficient and friendly and the food was great - delicious vension, ox cheek, scallops and a decent wine list. If Oxo's could improve the rather tired decor it would be a marvel! So yes - give it a go!
Our first visit after 20 years in York. Food was very good and reasonably priced at this end if the market. The staff are enthusiastic and try hard, but the environment and style is a decade or two behind the curve and lacks that modern bistro feel which with the quality of the food could improve the business.
Jus a tad expensive as the Valentine menu was the only one available, the day after Valentines??
Went for a valentines meal 30 years after we had got engaged in the same restaurant. The set menu was lovely and the rose and heart shortbread were a nice touch. Enjoyed the experience thank you.
Excellent first greeting , seated quickly,food was delicious and beatifully served . Waiting staff where professional but friendly and attentive but not overbearing .
Couldn't fault the service or the food. The cocktails are amazing!
Excellent dining experience with very friendly staff
Excellent service and food. Very good value as always
Was quite as it was 30th Dec. There was a table with kids there which was a little roudy when we first got there but they soon went. Food was good although the beef was a little undercooked for me.
It was our wedding anniversary and after the dinner they presented us with a cake which was really nice of them.
Staff were warm and welcoming and would go there again.
The service was excellent, from the greeting when we arrived to the taxi we requested when we left. We both had vegetarian mains (I am a vegetarian but my husband isn’t) and they were delicious. We shared the cheeseboard, there was more than enough for 2 and it was a good selection.
My husband and I were visiting York for his birthday and ate at Oxo’s. The service was excellent, with Ruben being very attentive, whilst still giving us space. The food was outstanding and my husband was presented with a birthday cake at the end of our meal. As we were too full after our delicious meal, Ruben gave us the cake, wrapped in a tin foil swan.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting York, and any futures visits to York, will include dinner at Oxo’s.
Good food and ambience although a little old fashioned but staff were superb
A first class venue, our Sunday lunch was superb - lovely starters and beautifully cooked beef and excellent vegetables. A traditional venue with excellent service and friendly staff.
Excellent food and service. Great value. Strongly recommend.
Lovely restaurant with excellent food. Highly recommended.
The service at Oxo was really attentive & courteous. The food was amazing and the portion sizes were good. The ambience was conducive to couples although there was a family with two young children there but they were amazingly quiet. Would definitely return.
Booked a meal here for our 35th Wedding Anniversary, Food is fantastic, staff very very good, overall an excellent restaurant and highly recommended.
Thank you for the cake, a lovely gesture and very very nice.

From the moment we walked through the door we received attentive but not pushy, good old fashioned top class service. The food was excellent and we will definitely return here. Highly recommended.
