I could’ve spent a lot less and have much better food. Felt annoyed at what I ended up paying.

Lovely restaurant with a fantastic view whilst you eat. The service was fantastic and the staff were very attentive. The timing of the food was good with a good waiting time between courses and the food was fantastic. Would definitely recommend and re-visit to try more of the menu.

We were here for a special occasion. The view and atmosphere was lovely, very relaxing indeed. Unfortunately the food didn’t match up to the view. I’ve been to the brasserie before and that was outstanding, but the restaurant wasn’t good. My starter of pork belly was bland, and the main of lamb had unrendered fat and was chewy.
I’d definitely return to the brasserie, but not the restaurant.
Wine chap was very lovely, our main waiter however was a little bit grumpy.

Hadn’t been to Oxo Tower for a number of years! I took a chance by booking there for dinner. As we had visitors from abroad I thought it is a good location with lovely views.

We were very pleasantly supplied as we had a great dinner. Nice choice on menu. Beautifully presented and good taste.
Would definetly go back and recommend

First thing to say is that the staff were incredible. They couldn't have been any more accommodating and the knowledge of the menu and further wines was seriously impressive.

The food was really tasty but just not 5* as it's not the best I've ever had but still very good.
Price not 5* for the same reason as above. It was pretty expensive and not the absolute best I've had, although I would point out that the £35 lunch menu is very reasonable.

I would recommend and would go back for another visit.

Very nice and definitely a 5 star location. Staff were attentive and thorough but not that friendly. The food was of good portions, very tasty but overpriced for what we received.
We came here many years ago where I believed it was one of the best restaurants in London and it seems they have slipped since we were last here. There are plenty of fantastic high class restaurants so need to be careful they are not too complacent. I would still recommend this restaurant mainly because of the amazing location.

Great views from the patio, if you can seat outside do it, that's the way to go. Food and service was great, I loved their poached salmon, very tasty.

Overall it just wasn’t up to the quality it should have been for the price paid. £450 for 3.

Had mojitos to start, these were bitter and not sweet at all.

I had to ask for both the wine list and tasting menus. We decided to go for the tasting menu. The food was dry, it was like it had been sitting under a lamp for ages or reheated from night before, flavours didn’t compliment each other, smallest scallops I have ever seen, croutons in soup where very hard. The view is not worth the low quality of food.

Ambience just okay, service just okay.

Dessert however was delicious.

I had been waiting to go to this restaurant for years, so disappointing, I would not recommend. So many better restaurants in London for a more reasonable price.

I was having a client diner and OXO just didn't impress.

Oxo Tower was very good. Very friendly service... especially from the Sommelier. But other service was a little chaotic. Especially at the Reception desk where she got distracted which resulted (I believe) in us falling through the gaps and missing our original table. A little irritating, being honest, not knowing if we were 'in the system' or could have been waiting at the bar forever having been missed. We asked which resulted in getting noticed. Rest of the evening and food was good. Lovely venue with great views. Our table was not great. But overall pleasant evening.

This is one of the loveliest spaces in London, and it also has particularly delightful cuisine. The service is charming and capable. I particularly loved the take on falafel, and the rhubarb/apple crumble, but all the food is marvelously presented and intelligently executed. Dining while overlooking St. Paul's and the river traffic, not to mention the skies that look like a Constable painting is as great a pleasure, as the sophisticated but unpretentious cuisine. Eating here will make you happy!

Ive had smaller bills at 2 Michelin star restaurants and the food is worlds apart. Oxo is an OK venue, the staff are friendly enough, wine pairings just OK. for 135 per head I recommend you go to core by Claire smith rather than here. Really disappointed.
