    The food was creative and excellent. The waitress was enthusiastic, helpful and efficient. The food is pricey but I'd have to say it was worth it. We sat outside in a lovely, quite and well-lit patio. I'm glad we weren't in the restaurant because the noise level when you enter by the bar was deafening.

    This was a perfectly fine date night spot. We sat on the back patio and we shared the veal meatballs (delicious) and split 3 pastas (CACIO E PEPE yum , 5 LAYER LASAGNA yum, GARGANELLI meh). Service was sporadic with drinks (wine by the glass) though food was delivered quickly. Fair amount of fruit flies in the back patio though that's tough to deal with as a restaurant.

    One of our waitresses was seemingly avoiding us and she kept focusing her attention on one table. It was like they were her friends or something more as she would stand and talk to them for long periods. The other waitress who was doing her due diligence, was lovely and much appreciated

    We had a great birthday dinner for our first time at the Fat Ox. Evan and the team were terrific on the beautiful, secluded back patio. Heaters kept everything perfect as the evening got cool. All of our dishes were excellent and well designed with interesting and complex flavors. Grilled octopus was a favorite. Will definitely be back soon.

    Impeccable service. Immediately acknowledged our party when we sat down and remembered details of our reservation. Food was delicious. We had a selection of appetizers, several small pasta dishes, scallops and chicken. Each dish was perfectly prepared. Wine list was good with broad selection of Italian wines. Fairly pricey but worth it for quality of food and service. Would love to visit again.

    For Valentine's Day, the restaurant was empty. At 150.00 per person fixed price menu with less than stellar choices. People didn't come. The restaurant got too greedy. Thinking what ever they do is ok. The public is stupid they will pay. Well I paid I guess I'm stupid. Not again that is for sure. They sat us outside without even asking. Inside was empty. I live right down the street. If I wanted to go to Mastroes or Domino's to overpay, I would have gone there. BTW: we waited over 1 hour for our main meal some kind of mix up. Restitution: would you like more bread.

    My wife and I came here for a prie fixe meal on Valentine’s Day - the service and atmosphere were nice, but the food was VERY underwhelming at this price point. Tough, dry, short rib and chicken, and appetizers that simply lacked the complex flavors one would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. They also advertised a complimentary bottle of rose for the event that they did not deliver. All-in-all, it was a really disappointing experience. There are some terrific Italian restaurants in the Valley - this isn’t one of them.

    My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of dining at the Fat Ox in Scottsdale, AZ, this Valentine's Day, and it was an experience we'll cherish forever. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant, the ambiance struck the perfect balance between elegance and warmth, setting the stage for a romantic evening. The staff greeted us with genuine smiles, and their attention to detail was impeccable throughout the night, making us feel truly special. The culinary journey at Fat Ox was nothing short of spectacular. Each dish was a masterpiece, blending traditional Italian flavors with innovative twists that delighted our palates. The highlight of our meal was the hand-crafted pasta, which was evidently made with a lot of care and expertise, embodying the essence of Italian cuisine with every bite. Paired with a selection from their extensive wine list, our dinner was elevated to a memorable gastronomic experience. The Fat Ox not only lived up to our expectations but exceeded them, making our Valentine's Day dinner an unforgettable celebration of love and fine dining.

    Hostess culture needs to change, and this restaurant is an example. The girls have no social skills and are dressed tacky. Jeans and leather jackets. We thought the place was at least business casual. Very cold and rude but our waitress was warm and very precise in every thing the place could do

    The food portions were ridiculously small and highly overpriced. The meal took forever to come out and was highly disappointing. We ordered the 25 layer lasagna, which was smaller than piece of sheet cake. My Caesar salad was child size. Overall, not a place I would return. If you’re hungry, don’t come here.
