It's nice to go to one of the best restaurants in Houston, one of my favorites in the U.S. (probably only second to Le Bernardin for me), and have the focus totally on the food. Dress code is chic casual. Ambiance is comfortable and service...More

We usually go to The Pass for a high end date night dinner, but we decided to try Oxheart (finally!). The place is relaxed and quite casual - it has a good neighborhood vibe. The food is high end, veggie-centric for the most part, but...More

My Fiance' brought me to an amazing multi-course meal with wine pairings for my Birthday. I couldn't have asked for more of an eclectic combination of flavors! Chef Justin Yu is most definitely an artist in his craft.

Oxheart was a very pleasant surprise of delicious and creative dishes. We selected one of each menu, so had the opportunity to try 9 different courses (between the two of us) and I can honestly say they were all excellent, some even exceptional. The only...More

It's all about creativity at Oxheart. A meal here will consist of ingredients you don't typically have together, leading to flavors you probably haven't experienced, all presented in attractively interesting ways, in a small but charming space. The service is excellent.

We were lucky enough to get a reservation here right after their summer break. The restaurant is located in an old part of town but is fun & artsy. The choices were either the Summer or Garden menu both being 6 course tastings. We chose...More
