Some friends came into town on Saturday and we dinner at Ox. It was very good. We had the same things as other people mentioned before so I won't go into details but all of us were very happy with the service and quality of the food.

Ox is definitely a nice addition to the ever changing JC restaurant scene.

My 2 cents:

Went last night - no it's not Mexican. Service was excellent, atmosphere was very comfortable, although the dining room is pretty loud when the place is full, such as last night.

Tried the mussles and ox tail appetizers, both good. The mussles in Skinners Loft was better. Ox tail was interesting, it was on top of some sort of rice custard?

I had the Grilled Flat Iron Steak, medium rare, very good quality meat, cooked just right, lots of flavor. The spinach and potato that came with it was very good.

Th other people in my party had the Pan Seared Scallops (Excellent -reccommended), and the Olive Oil poached Halibutl topped with tobiko (fish eggs).

They also had a $26 bottle of Zin that was quite a good deal.

And the kids thought the Chocolate Gelatto was the best in recent memory.


I think the oxtail was on top of polenta. I thought it was yummy too. Also - loved the Cranberry Fizz. Very unusual flavor.

Hey parkman, how does one "sever" a vodka? Just kidding.

Anyhow I thought maybe I missed a new place opening re: White Horse. It's all good. And why would we let anyone get away with anything here?

Boy, you can?t get away with anything around here. Yes it was supposed to read ?Light Horse Tavern? ? so sue me. The review was about OX; simple error, sorry to cause such tumult.


Ps. Went there again last night and had the new addition to the menu of sea scallops ? very flavorful. Our waitress from last time welcomed us back immediately, remembered what vodka I preferred and how I like it severed; a pleasure to see that level of service. Full house last night, soon I think it?s going to get difficult to get in without a reservation well in advance.

HUH? Did I miss something here? I looked through the thread and didn't see a mention of either White Horse Tavern ( a famous tavern in the West Village, site of Dylan Thomas's hang and deadly passing) or Light Horse Tavern (Paulus Hook).

We ate at Ox last night. This is a delicious alternative to Marco & Pepe. We've been waiting for it to open for weeks.

The sweet potato salad and ox tail were great.

The rabbit was just so juicy and tender (not anything like any chicken I've ever had - how could you even say it tastes like chicken).

The pork belly just melted in your mouth - a perfect play of flavors. Everyone at the table tried a piece and it was the best by far.

The sea bass was delicious as well.

The apple cranberry crisp was great. It does need a larger helping of vanilla gelato though. The nutella tart was devilishly decadent.


Oh and the Jersey City is definitely worth it. I saw it on their website the night before and knew ahead of time that is what I wanted. It did not disappoint. A perfect balance of bourbon and brandy.

My husband & I ate there last night & thought it was fabulous. Loved the olives on the table, the simple decor & menu. We started w/ the bibb lettuce salad (yummy) which was great & came quickly. We had a bit of a wait for our entrees, but we expected that since it was only the second night open. Our waitress was attentive during our wait, and informed us of the backup in the kitchen - offered to freshen up our drinks/bring more olives, great service! Once the food came, it was well worth the wait!!! Hubby ordered the pork belly which he thoroughly enjoyed - I also tried some, it was almost too decadent to finish, but he did :) I ordered the seabass which was perfectly cooked & the broth and potatoes were very nicely flavored. Next time we will do dessert! We can't wait to return :)

shredded rabbit doesn't sound very good

Just returned from dinner at Ox. One of the best meals I have had in Jersey City, second to only Porto Leggero. The food couldn't have been any better and the service (especially for such a new restaurant) was wonderful. I highly recommend the sweet potato salad, pork belly, ox appetizer, and nutella dessert.

I found a link that reproduces some of the lost recipes of that thread (webmaster deleted posts before a certain date on this site and it removed 80% of what used to be here! ) and most of the posters of those recipes have moved on to another site, but here is the link to my recipe for Dill Potato Salad and Georgia Brunswick Stew plus some other great recipes.

Haven't been yet but looking forward to going as read nothing but good reviews.

As to "...amazing sweet potato salad (who knew of such a thing? But it works!), ", sweet potato salad is a staple in the South and I know I posted my own recipe here in the JC Cookbook thread, if it hasn't been deleted by the infamous software upgrade.

Do a search and you may find it.

I dined there during the preview dinners and enjoyed everything I ate and drank. There was a limited menu, and I can't wait to try all of the other food that will be added to the menu as time goes on.

Bourbon Steamed Mussels - rich flavor that still managed to be light and a welcome change to the same old steamed mussels I have had elsewhere.

Steak - Cooked to perfection on top of some buttery good potatoes and watercress.

Nutella Tart - mmm ... like a warm brownie with espresso.

Service was excellent and attentive without being overbearing.

I have yet to try the Jersey City drink (their take on a Manhattan), but will have one the next time I visit which will be soon.

Ox was well worth the wait!!!!
I had the Sweet Potato Salad, It was really good.
I also had the Flat Iron steak - it was just the way I like it!!!
Jersey City needed an establishment like this. I will definately be an ongoing customer.
All the servers worked together as a team and made sure our dining experience was pleasant!
I can't wait for the Steak tartare!!!!

GREAT opening night!

we had the oxtail appetizer, the pear/gorganzola salad, the pork belly and the duck.

everything was cooked to perfection and the timing of the courses was spot-on.

our waiter (didn't get his name, damn) was attentive and the ambiance was relaxed and welcoming.

we were too full for dessert, but there's always next time. and there will be a next time, and a time after that.

think I've found my new favorite local.

Had dinner there tonight, what a pleasure; great ambiance, service (Megan), lighting, and most of all, the food.

We shared the sweet potato salad, which had an excellent dressing and wonderful mix of flavors. I had the sea bass, which was cooked perfectly, and my wife had rabbittx2 surprisingly flavorful and sweet; who knew?

Desserts, oh my. The apple/cranberry crisp, to die for and nutella (sp) tart, incredible.

Prices comparable to Marco & Pepe and a little less than White Horse.

Excellent for an opening night, can?t wait for an expanded menu.

Nice bar too.

Damn, I'm hungry.
