Asked for booking at half 5, I then received a phone call saying they had pushed my meal back to 6 due to overcrowding. It wasn’t due to overcrowding it was so that they could charge 105 per head for a buffet instead of a regular meal. Extremely disappointed as this is not what I wanted or would even consider paying for a buffet, took over 2 hours to find another restaurant. Ruined the evening, would not recommend.
Birthday amazing food and attentive staff
Kamal was extra helpful and very informative throughout the meal. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the food on offer was delicious! Will be back very soon!
Great food (and lots of it) and service. Really loud tho!
Went for Sunday Brunch. Starters, open kitchen menu and desserts were amazing and wide selections. Minor point no sauce provided for the Yorkshire pudding, after asked they only have beef jus. It’s too noisy with the busy crowd and live music, unable to chat without shouting. Overall very good food and value for money. Ambience could be better.
Absolutely lovely restaurant. Service was fantastic and the food was great quality and value for money. The decor was very interesting and made a great setting for a romantic night out.
Nice steaks!! Lovely venue but a little empty so not so much atmosphere as I might of liked, but it was Jan!
We booked the dinner for new year eve, but very disappointed by the food....
Food is really just average, the steak was super dry... and it’s way too over price for the poor quality of the food.
Had the fizzy Friday menu which is a la carte menu with free flowing prosecco for 90 minutes. We had to keep calling the waitress to top our glass up on most occasions she was nowhere to be seen. It was quite busy as there were a few Christmas parties going on. The food was good although the menu was pretty limited with a £12 supplement for steak and £5 for squid starter!
This was my 3rd time at OXBO Bankside and will definitely be back
Service was extremely slow
Came here for my birthday dinner with 6 friends and was very well looked after by the attentive staff. Great selection of cocktails and lovely food in a nice ambience where you can hear each other talk. Been here twice since and will continue to come back!
Happily surprised by the set menu. Food option were very tasty!
Enjoyed the food and each course was full of flavours, do not always enjoy Hotel restaurants but this is certainly worth a visit.
The deal of 3courses plus a glass of fizz was excellent value for £23 and we enjoyed our evening very much. We shall return.
Excellent service; all of the waitstaff were keeping an eye on all the tables so you never were unattended. Food was very good with a decent variety on the menu. Prices were reasonable.
Matteo (assistant manager) took very good care us. He was nice and friendly and always ready to help and advise us . Food was very fresh and tasty . The restaurant was not so busy so we took our time and we could enjoy a very relaxed environment .
The brunch is always great value for money. Great choice of starters, main and desserts. Portions are not too big considering it's a buffet brunch. Third visit and will continue to go.
Great food. Exceptional staff. Vincent was awesome. The manager was great!
Restaurant marked us as a no-show, even though we gave our name to the hostess. Corn soup was nice, but could have done without the garnishes - popcorn, corn nuts and baby corn cob. Bread was stale, drink order - a bottle of ginger beer - ordered at the beginning didn't arrive until before entree, had to inquire about it a couple of times. A very large portion of pork belly was served, but left nearly 2/3 uneaten because it was overdone and ate more like pork jerky than pork belly. Server was nice enough to comp some of our sparkling water consumption for the inconvenience.
I left this review for a while in order to reflect as I dont like giving bad reviews.
After taking my team here, I was hoping it would be good as they deserved a good meal. Unfortunately it was marred by the service. It was simply awful. It's sad as there were a coupe of people working there that were very friendly and knew what service was, but there were some that just ruined it.
We ordered steaks of different cooked levels (Rare/Medium/Well Done etc.). When they came to serve the steaks, they started putting them down on the table and didn't care about which steak anyone got (as long as it was the right type of meat). I asked which steaks were which and they didn't know. Afterwards another person came and started to serve the same plates again without knowing which ones were which. Again I said that we needed to know how the steaks had been prepared, the response I got was a dirty look and attitude. After more people came they then started to try and work it out. Then someone came who knew which ones were cooked correctly. Unfortunately not all the meals were correct as some medium rares were cooked more than the mediums.
The service was very slow and trying to find someone to take drinks orders during the meal or ask for the missing sauces for the food, was near impossible. In the end I had to get out of my seat and go and chase.
The food itself was fine but with so much choice in London for somewhere to go, thiis place will not be somewhere I will return to. I didn'tt thing I cared about service so much until I was letting my whole team down.
I suppose if you are dining in smaller groups it will be a better experience. That'll be up to you to decide.
I opted for fried squid and my guest went for the mussels. Both of us had rib eye steak with sides, which was fantastic.
Very good restaurant pre Globe theatre in an area that has few comparably good choices. Seasonal specialties and good value for the quality. Excellent filet steak and very good pumpkin soup.
Excellent Sunday lunch. Live music that got lost a little as the place filled up. Quite attentive servers.
Another great find near Tate Modern and far enough from Borough Market to not be too touristy.
The food was excellent, first class ingredients cooked really well. The service was friendly but easy to confuse them if you didn't want everything in the right order. Will recommend and look forward to another visist
Service nice, food good however a little bit empty.
Previously had not heard of this restaurant and was looking for a venue for lunch on a Sunday near Tate modern, how glad we were to have found this excellent restaurant at only 3 mins walk away. Food was innovative, of high quality and had an excellent wide choice of buffet items suitable for all diets. The staff were highly attentive, friendly and welcoming. There was also a live guitarist who serenaded Happy birthday to my 93 year old mother ! Age group of diners looked mainly in the 20- 50 year age group - but age does not matter ! The dining experience means that you can sit in various kinds of spaces depending on whether you wish to be more private or have a long table as a big group. I would/will definitely return and can't praise the restaurant more highly.
very nice food
expensive wine, not good.
polite, friendly and prompt service.
Amazing experience, would definitely recommend, great ambiance, service and delicious food 👍🏽
Lovely food from choosing our own starters, main was beautiful the beef was so tender. Pudding though! Well if your like me and have a sweet tooth you will very much appreciate the choices you can have! Great meal and not bad for the price either. Only thing I would say that spoilt it a little was that where we got sat there was a big group of people and it was very noisy.
Nice restaurant and good service. Food about average but pleasant.
We were celebrating a birthday and so started in the Distillery Bar - Andy and his mixologist team were brilliant, very friendly and created a fun, relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant next door has a fun decor, menu had good range while portions are significant! Everyone very much enjoyed and while we celebrated, the wine list had some decent budgetary options. Would recommend for both business or social, definitely be going back. Great fun.
A friendly new local, OXBO has really settled itself into the neighborhood. rather than feeling like a big impersonal hotel restaurant, this place feels more like a boutique hotel dining, where people are friendly and warm. Food is generally better in the restaurant than the bar, very good drinks!
OXBO was a great find set minutes away from the Southbank! Set in the Hilton it was a great atmosphere! Service was on point with a warm and friendly greeting and care and attention taken in seating! Waiting staff were knowledgable and not over pushy. Very efficient. Food was full of flavour and presentation was great! Dishes were hot and cooked well. Had a great evening with a lovely warm ambience and feel very private and cosy ! Exceptional value for the quality of the food would definitely visit again !
good food.good service.great ambiance.good value for money.
will definitely eat here again.
Outstanding value for sunday roast, for £29 you get a glass of champagne, an amazing starter buffet, one choice of roast (beef, chicket, fish or vegetarian), and an equally yummy dessert buffet. Very nice setting and efficient service. Didn't expect this from a hotel restaurant, will come back when in the vicinity of Tate Modern!!
Had lunch after visiting Tate Modern. We ordered the lunch deal which was very very basic. Not impressed at all, except for the ambiance which was great, fios was very average.
We enjoyed a very nice and generous Sunday lunch. Service very attentive. There was live music which was nice but made the place a bit too noisy at times.
food is of good quality (higher-end hotel) and service is very friendly...some of the prices are quite high, but the three course meal is a good value at 21 pounds.
lots of room and good hotel bar too.
This was an unexpected gem. Service was very good and food was fab. I had the pumpkin soup which was amazing. My friend had the calf's liver for main which was delicious, I had the salmon which was also lovely. Will definitely go back.
