We was at the restaurant for a birthday celebration for my wife. We had a three course Sunday roast which was superb. A bottle of St Emilion accompanied the meal which we enjoyed. The service was friendly & relaxed. Finishing of the meal with coffee in the lounge was very comfortable & then being surprised by the staff singing Happy Birthday with a cake. All in all I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Anniversary meal. Relaxes atmosphere. Very pleasant host, who made us feel very welcome. Starters were excellent. I had the smoked haddock, whilst my husband had the beef cheek. For mains I had salmon, which was tasty. Unfortunately my husbands duck was a little too pink ,but it was no problem to get this sorted, although the skin still was not rendered down as much as it could have been. However ,the taste was excellent, and the jus amazing. Came with a salted duck egg yolk, which was very unusual, but tasted fab. At the end of the meal we were presented with a small fresh fruit cake with a candle..a lovely touch. Would definitely eat here again when in York.

We booked Oxo’s on the Mount as an anniversary dinner and had a fabulous time. The two attendants were friendly, witty and accommodating. We were a a bot odd with only one of us having a starter and the other a desert but they happily gave us their recommendations and friendly joked about our choices. Honestly the restaurant was a bit higher class than we envisioned from other reviews at least for dinner but it was a great atmosphere. The food was brilliantly prepared, looking fantastic, tasted great and was extremely filling that I could no even look at my partners dessert. We both had the rib eye steak which were beautifully cooked and lovely mushrooms which had some kind of butter or oil as they were delicious and I could have simply had a plate of them.

As a small extra we were also offered some kind of small sweetened hot apple puree that I missed the name of, a gift from the chef and it was delicious and my partner who skipped the starter was very pleased with it.

To top off the night we had a coffee and a baileys coffee which they gave us a few areas to choose from. We chose the soft leather couch by a fire and while enjoying our coffee and digesting we were surprised with a lovely anniversary cake which we took some pictures with and ended up stuffing our faces with at the hotel later.

Really pleased with the evening, beautiful restaurant and felt very rustic which lots of charm, easy to get to from the city, friendly/fun staff and great food. Would highly recommend.

We chose Oxo’s restaurant as one to visit on our 3 night stay in York due to its easy walking distance from our hotel (Marriot) & the superb reviews it had. I was initially a little disconcerted to find it was “attached” & served the Mount Royal Hotel as I’ve previously found that hotel restaurants generally disappoint; I needn’t have worried.

We couldn’t get a booking on Valentines night so booked the following night which is the wife’s birthday but, when we arrived, discovered we were one of only 3 tables dining that night! It wasn’t a problem though as the staff were very friendly staff & accommodating & rather spoilt us for attention.

Portions were not huge but the point of fine dinning is quality not quantity & 2 courses was perfectly adequate for us. Overall, the food was excellent & didn’t disappoint; the scallop’s starter we both had (for the second night running) was excellent & perfectly cooked & the Lamb & Duck mains we had were delicious & faultless.

The restaurant is traditional, which I personally prefer, & had a very nice ambience. After our excellent meal, we retired to a lovely small bar area for coffee & Brandy. The bar staff person was excellent & brought out a birthday cake for my wife, complete with lit candle along with our drinks. The booking agent for the restaurant had previously asked if it was a special occasion but I wasn’t expecting much & this was a very nice touch. We could not eat the cake so they wrapped it in a very nice tin foil, Swan creation for us to take home. Really lovely attention to detail here, the final price for the evening was moderate but the food, wine & service was excellent.

Oxo’s well deserves its high ratings near the top of the fine dinning tree of York city & we will certainly visit again when we return. After chatting with the staff, we may well stay at the hotel which has a spa facility &, hopefully, will prove better than the Marriot which turned out to be very disappointing!

Have visited here before for special occasions and once again it did not fail to impress. The food was amazing and even though the restaurant was very quiet it did not spoil our enjoyment. A lovely place to celebrate 2 birthday's. Also presented with a cake, a nice touch. Will definitely return and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

We visited the oxo restaurant on the 29th and had a exceptional meal with some excellent wine. I had the crispy hens egg for starter which was more from curiosity than anything else. It arrived and was a simple dish with the ingredients separated however once combined in a mouthful the dish really entertained my tastebuds. Main dish I chose was red mullet a fish I haven’t often tried but his was excellently cooked and had a unique flavour. My wife had a similar experience with the choices she made as well. The wine we chose was delightful a bottle of Pouli fouse along with a glass of the premier cru Chablis which was sublime. Desert was a cinnamon creme brule which worked very well.

The rather quirky dining area is ideal for conversation. The service is very attentive, without undue interference. The choice on the menu is broad enough for all diners, it is served on hot plates and the presentation is very pleasing. The duck and the lamb were both excellent. A definite addition to silver service dining in York.
