As the Red Ox is within walking distance from the Hotel Adriatica, where I usually stay, when I'm in Geneva, I went there several times, alone, or with colleagues. It offers a large selection of excellent steaks, good wines, and some traditional swiss dishes as well as seafood. At the bar (I was there in Summer the last time) they have a good selection of whiskies, the barman told me that this will be adjusted in autumn and winter towards an even bigger selection. The staff is professional and friendly as usual in Switzerland. Now the drawback on the whole deal is - you better take your boss to pick up the tab, as even for Geneva it's a bit on the pricey side :)

Recently visited it with my four kids and food was excellent. The lamb chops were incredible. I recommend the Sirloin steak, which was better than the TBone. They had kids menu, great steak for kids menu. Nice wine list.

As you enter the Red Ox Steak house, your eyes are drawn to a display on an iced counter of fresh big chunks of red meat that will make your mouth water and your appetite grow 10 times stronger. You are greeted by two professional elderly waiters who look like they really know what they're doing. They help you take off your jacket and hang it while you are looking around, observing that you are in a rather masculine setting of people in well dressed business attire. You are escorted to your simply set table covered by a white table cloth and napkins. I was a guest of a Swiss banker who seemed to be a regular. A fresh bread de campagne with butter was served as you appease your overwhelming hunger. After a brief presentation by the Maitre d', we placed our order. My host ordered "Gambas Sauvages d'Afrique" (giant shrimps of Africa) with an "infusion de carapaces" which he devoured elegantly, cutting and deshelling them in an artful manner. The manager of the resturant, Monsieur Aymard, personally suggested, when he heard that I am an afficianado of steak tartare, that it be made from a tenderloin cut. It came nicely mixed with well balanced ingredients accompanied by a hot sauce on the side, leaving me to spice it according to how well I can take hot pimentos. The french fries were browned to perfection. All this was watered down with an excellent wine, LE CHEVALIER NOIR (domaine du chateaux de collex), which is an assemblage of different grapes: gamaret, pinot noir and garanoire. What a meal, ending with two tarts, rhubarb and almond. This is a serious, elegant, and not snobbish restaurant. Bravo, Monsieur Aymard and staff.
