                            A professionally run restaurant, staff well drilled and organised but with a good dose of charm from every member of the serving team. Food was very competently done, well cooked and tasty. Wines were well selected and overall a most enjoyable dinner. Not cheap, but very happy to return. Thankyou to all at the Oxo

                            Had a wonderful evening, drinking cocktails overlooking the Thames, then to a lovely table next to the huge windows overlooking the London skyline / sunset. Food was fantastic and wine delicious. The staff were friendly, attentive and efficient; they looked after us so well. A wonderful evening and one I hope to repeat again soon. Responses to queries before I attended were dealt with quickly and efficiently and every request (including a ‘Happy Birthday’ written on the dessert plate) was catered for.

                            Staff were incredible. Helpful, polite and professional. Food was quick but not rushed, everything tasted amazing. Honestly we had a perfect evening. The bill was high but that’s to be expected when you’re dining somewhere as great as this. We can’t wait to go back. A faultless evening. The crab and steak were our favourite dishes (we did the 8 course taster with wine! Completely recommend!)

                            If I pay £250 for a meal for two I expect food to be served hot. Not cold. Will not risk taking clients there again if they can’t even do this basic.

                            We 3njoyed our first night of retirement at the Oxo tower restaurant. Yhe food was very good, we had as main course chateau briand which was excellent and melted in our mouths. The portions were very good. I found the staff both reception and front of house were polite and attentive without being smothering.

It was my cousins birthday so they wrote happy birthday on her desert plate. The staff were very attentive and rhe views were amazing. Will be back again.

                            Had a great time - the food was excellent and service attentive. Views are brilliant. Just wish that when you book a set menu they didn’t give you an a la carte menu when you sit down.

                            Everything was wonderful - from the food to the service. The setting was great. This is not a cheap option, but well worth it for a special occasion. Make sure you get a table near the windows to enjoy the London views.

                            It was my partner’s birthday and we had the tasting menu without wine. The attention to detail was spectacular & they provided a personalised dessert as part of the menu which was very thoughtful. The view was beautiful & those who worked there were exceptional. Would highly recommend.

                            Nice view but average food. Had tasting menu, not impressed. Service is below average, forgot to serve bread and did not clean nor cover up when food dropped on the table. Was having still water but top up with tab water. Wine paired was the only good point of the night.

Special thanks to the lovely lady with brown/ blonde hair who was always making sure everything was perfect and made our dinner and occasion for my mum an unforgettable one. Thank you so much! Will definitely come back. Strongly recommend it!

                            Good food and great views, with very helpful waiting staff. Let down a little by the internal decor which, while impressive in the entrance, felt a little like a department store cafe in the main eating area. As a result, the overall experience didn't quite match with the premium price.

                            We tried their 25th birthday set menu which presented us with three choices for starter, main and dessert with a glass of champagne. The food was delicious and well presented as was the champagne. Excellent service in a convivial atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

                            Hadn't been to the Oxo Tower for years. Worth arriving early to try and secure a window table with one best views in London. We loved the "London Restaurant Festival - 25th Birthday" menu. The pork belly starter and lamb main course were excellent and the desert was delicious too. Complimentary glasses of champagne set the tone. Thoroughly enjoyable and with a high glamour factor. Thanks to the team for great food and service.
