On the night we went, it was very noisy. The look is open and loved the window. We enjoyed the table side Caesar salad, GREEN TORTELLINI, SHORT RIB ALLA VACCINIA.All of the dishes were very good that night. This restaurant is pricey but on the night we dined I would say was worth it.

We were on a double date with friends who suggested we go to Fat Ox. I found the food to be perfectly executed. I am a big foodie and this restaurant surpassed my expectations. Definitely looking to visit again soon.

The Fat Ox is relatively new in Scottsdale. We went on a Sunday so the ambience was low. The service was very robotic and the ‘obvious manager’ didn’t seem to bother to speak to any of the diners. The menu albeit a little to over engineered offers an innovative choice of Italian dishes. I had the 25 layer lasagne which was extremely good. But with so much choice in the area maybe they could try a little harder to make the visit more of an experience. I wouldn’t go back but worth a try.

A friend had his bday here. I was impressed with the windows and vibe. Very New York- sophisticated. However, I ordered the mussels and had to send them back as they were fishy and disgusting. So we moved on to the meal. I ordered the mozzarella with crab. It was ok. The bread and butter was a highlight. But then my man ordered the 1/2 chicken and i got pasta. Our friends ordered the whole chicken to split. Theirs came out on a beautiful wooden board. Presented beautifully. My man’s came out on a plate and then 5 mins later they brought him all of the accompaniments. Very underwhelming and made him feel 1/2 as special for ordering the 1/2 portion. Not a good look. I would suggest if you feel like there’s not enough room for the grand whole platter, still do a half sized small board for the 1/2 portion with all of the fixings on it at the same time. All of us at the table didn’t like that - and it’s stupid for the accompaniments to come out so long after the food. Bring it all at once or wait. I won’t be going back.

Service is top shelf! Enjoy artistic food interpretations by the Chef. We chose the dining room in the back since it is away from the bar and so is quieter. The prices are expensive--be prepared. But the food quality and ambiance make this a special experience, especially suited for a romantic meal.
