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.

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.

Highly recommend.
We went on a Saturday evening, having discovered the place by chance as we were staying in York for the weekend only and were not familiar of the part of the world at all.
Very attentive and professional staff, lovely setting with a cozy country house feel - particulary the bar, where we sat by the fireplace to enjoy an aperitif, delicious and abundant food, and great wine list .
If we have the chance to come to York again, we would certainly go back and maybe even stay at their hotel to enjoy the full experience

Really disappointed, the lamb was full of fat, I had trouble finding any meat and then when I tried to cut the fat away it was really difficult, I am surprised that when my plate went back and the pork from my partners plate went back someone really should have asked a direct question to us about the state of the meat. The fact that it was a special treat for my sister I really did not want it to damper the day so I did not complain. I really do recommend getting a new meat supplier. On a positive note the staff were very friendly and the restaurant is very pretty.

From walking in the door everything about our visit was good. The welcome was warm, we were offered drinks in the bar or garden first or at the table. We chose the latter. We have allergy issues which they were very attentive to. Service was prompt but not rushed, the menu was varied and offered a good range.
The quality was very good and cooked superbly. Overall a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary and the staff really couldn’t do any more for us. Thank you all at Oxo’s.

Staying at the Mount Royal so Oxo seemed the obvious choice and what a good choice it was, none of us had anything but praise for both the service and the food, without doubt next time we are in York we will return.

I couldent fault the reception we had all the way to the final minute of our experience , the food was exceptional, quality produce with the passion of the chef to deliver the fine dining experience I have become custom to , my only but is the experience at the bar. Being a very small area found myself sandwiched between people sitting in the corner of the bar and just a couple of people at the bar just had enough space to order a drink before was asked to move because the people in corner wanted to get past , then I ordered two drinks one gin one grey goouse , I was plesenty shocked to find that was £30.50 I felt this was a little over priced as my meal with a bottle of wine came to £88.00 which I throughly would pay again and again , all in all I would return and would tell others to go to this restaurant ,

We had a delightful evening at Oxo's On the Mount. The menu was intriguing, the food was absolutely delicious and the portions were extremely generous. Service was excellent - staff were friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about the menu. We'd mentioned when booking that it was a special occasion and we were presented with an anniversary cake at the end of the meal which was very kind and much appreciated. And on top of that, the meal was very good value for money! Highly recommended

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.
