Restaurant was empty, steak was over cooked, fries looked and tasted like they’d been cooked hours prior to eating and reheated. All hard and just not enjoyable. Used to be so good, shadow of its former self

Ordered a fillet steak well done, we said yes to it being butterflied. It came out so small we couldn’t believe our eyes and it was that well done it was dry as a bone and completely black. Rib eye was also tough. Very disappointing for money spent.

It was lovely, I love it here. If I was richer I would come here more. But currently I’m content to come here on special occasions and just properly enjoy myself.

The food was excellent in fact the best steak I have had in a long time, however the service was slightly poor in that we had to wait a long time for drinks at the beginning, in addition the choice of beers is very limited.

Sadly by the time we ordered there was no fillet steak left which was a bit annoying. We then had the bivette and when the waitress brought it out she first told us it was sirloin and then got the different orders mixed up i.e I know I had a medium steak (when i’d ordered a medium rare) and i’m Pretty sure my dads partner had a medium rare (when she ordered a medium) but was too polite to say anything. The food was great but sadly the service was disappointing.

Excellent service and food & wine pairing recommendations. Steak was cooked perfectly with a tasty smoked searing. The chocolate delice and salted caramel popcorn was well balanced with taste and texture. Great atmosphere though we did have the restaurant to ourselves for the first hour so it was nice and quiet

Food & drink are far too exspensive, the food is average rather than "exceptional" for the price and some of the portions are on the small side. Plus tips should be discretionary rather than compulsory. Highly unlikely that I will return.

The service and atmosphere were great! Took my other half out to dinner for his 30thburthday and he loved it. I don’t eat red meat so had the veggie option of mushroom ragu which was nice but very oily (given that I was in a steak restsirant I can’t blame them for the only veggie option not being quite as impressive as the steaks though!) My partner had the fillet steak which he said was absolutely incredible. Nice wine, friendly people. Great!

We ordered 3 rib eye steaks and then after 10 mins the waiter came back and said you had run out!! So we ordered a sharing t bone but were not informed that came with chips and sides so when the food arrived we had double because we had previously ordered sides with our rib eye. We were then charged for all of this. The whole saga put a real damper on my sister in law birthday. I won’t be going to the ox again

Food and service were good. However we found the meal to be quite expensive, having to pay for sides and sauces. Pudding menu somewhat limited.

One of my favourites in Bristol. We dine here regularly, they always accommodating of the little one, service is fantastic, food has never disappointed and environment is lovely. Recommendation would be the fillet or rib-eye steak.

The food was good and the service was ok but definitely not worth the 10% service charge. I don’t know if we picked a bad night to visit but the restaurant was incredibly noisy, we were practically shouting across the table at each other. The atmosphere made me feel as if we were in a Wetherspoons not a restaurant. This is not the place to go for a quiet meal.

Really disappointed. Overpriced, bland, mediocre food and staff that made you feel that they couldn't care less if you were there or not! We won't be back.
