Young, friendly, enthusiastic staff. We dined during a special event with a 5 course fixed tasting menu. It is BYOB so we brought wine. Unfortunately they didn't seem to have a bucket stand. So our Moet champagne was unceremoniously set on the floor beside our table - a 1st for us. Our starter was a canned anchovy on a toast crisp - a bit harsh for a first bite. Soup looked nice but was inedible as it was served in a huge bowl with a small portion leaving it impossible to dip out short of tipping this immense awkward bowl. The next course was a small portion of mussels and clams. Very tasty but we were served a couple unopened ones. The fish course was the star of the meal - cooked perfectly, lightly seasoned and presented well. Dessert was simple but tasty. Unfortunately I did leave hungry. The local winery, Black Walnut, that was there doing the pairings was actually outstanding. The decor was artsy but a bit sparse. This location has tall ceilings and an odd center wall partitioning the space. After a couple hours the metal chairs did take its toll on my back. All in all a great restaurant for Oxford. With some time and tweaking this could be a fine dining destination for out-of-towners. Hopefully youthful enthusiasm can be maintained and refined.
