Celebrated birthday of my daughter. Started with Champagne, both of us chose the first menu offered (of only two available) of five courses. Four courses were paired with drinks - wine and beer. We had constant service and ate our own pace. Every course was...More

My partner and I were visiting Texas on a week long vacation, and on a trip to Houston we planned to dine at Oxheart. Sufficed to say we were blown away by the food. We had to wait slightly longer than expected for our seats...More

The three best meals I've had in my life have all been at Oxheart. The food is breathtakingly satisfying. It's a tiny little place where the wait staff change out records on the record player from time to time, when they're not serving you up...More

Justin Yu's ability to create simple yet unique dishes is fantastic. His restaurant is welcoming and approachable. Nestled in a New Yorkish industrial area of town, the ambiance hits you once the door opens. With two tasting menus, you can't go wrong. Simple and small,...More

Oxheart is one of the top rated restaurants in Houston. It is very small, reservations are a must and are hard to get; plan far in advance! They offer two Tasting menus, one with vegetables only and one that includes meat and fish. Highlights include...More

Wonderful evening for our family of four. Warmly welcomed and cared for until we left. We sat at counter and enjoyed watching the orchestration and precision, working in tight space. Food particularly designed for vegetarians. Only two six course menus tonight, a garden vegetarian and...More
