City Grocery was a really cute space and service was just fine. There were four of us so we got to try a lot of different things. The salads were exceptional. Our bibb lettuce salad was fresh, crisp, and perfectly dressed with the most delicious dressing I've ever had. The root vegetable salad was gorgeous as well as tasty. The... More

The food was ok but way overpriced. The "Award winning Chef" must have paid for the award because I could have gotten better food from an Outback Steakhouse. I won't be returning

My first time back in YEARS. I went many times while in school but it was every bit as good as I remembered. Service excellent. Creative, confident menu with something for everyone.

This is a restaurant that lives up to its chef's reputation. This is first-class, James Beard, traditional southern cuisine. After lunch you can walk off the calories by a delightful stroll around the square with a stop at one of America's most charming bookstores. We loved the food so much we ate at two other Oxford restaurants created by the... More

A perfect after-game spot for a light dinner and drinks with friends, everything was tasty, and they have a small bar area up top.

We went for a Sunday brunch and loved the food and Mimosa's. We had a reservation for 11:00 am (when it opens) and were the first ones in. It was not crowded at that time but I would probably recommend reservations if you plan to arrive closer to noon. I always prefer to sit outside but outside seating was no... More

One of my favorite meals, ever. Staff was friendly and had lots of suggestions about the menu. The food was superb. We took our mother for dinner here for her 70th birthday and it was worth every penny and then some. Definitely a must-do when you are in Oxford. Get reservations as far ahead as you can.

I have eaten here COUNTLESS times and it is always fresh, inviting, joyous, and delectable! Our waitress, Claire, had the daily menu memorized with both added features from her own palate as well as the chef's recommendations. I had the Panko grouper sandwich which was wonderful. The frites appetizers or as a side were great with the "Comeback" sauce. It's... More

Pleasant experience started with cocktail upstairs because restaurant opens at 6. Overall appearance looks fancier than it is, not in a bad way. Rustic where you see a lot of regulars, okay probably all regulars. Again, this was our top spot to try and wanted to see what all the buzz was about. Get right into the menu, all read... More

This is a fantastic place. Certainly one of the busiest places in Oxford, but somehow, even with no reservation, they seem to squeeze my party in with all due haste. Food is glorious.
