great choice for NT and their 25th years/ London food festival deal at £45 was a good choice
The OXO is a couple of times in a decade place for us and whilst by any measure the overall experience was good for the cost I felt that it should have been even better. The small bar area at the entrance is underwhelming and the tables could do with a refurb. Our table, away from the glorious view felt squashed and insignificant. The service was good, but again this is about matching the cost with the provision and it should have been friendlier and more engaging. Food was also good although I’ve had tastier filets of beef at lower cost. Mark ups on champagnes in particular are eye watering, a £50 retail bottle Ruinart Blanc de Blancs for £120 is a bit unnecessary. These are though minor grumbles although I probably won’t return, choosing to spend the money at a similar priced establishment.
Waiters were slow and unattentive.
I took my partner as a surprise for his birthday and we had the most amazing experience. We choose the Festival £45 menu and the food was outstanding. Views over St Paul’s cathedral were stunning and the service was faultless. Highly recommend and I will definitely return.
The service was appaling. First we were rushed to order. When we asked for more time, they totally ignored us for a long time. Then they served us starters which we did not order. When we let them know about the confusion, they took the plates and served them to the next table!!! Not very hygienic nor very professional… This is the second time I was there and not impressed with the service. I did not feel that they earned the service charge!
There was only one thing stops this being an outstanding evening. One course was not good enough. My wife choose Ice Cream for her pudding and it was not up to scratch. Her comment was that all three flavours had a bitter flavour.
The meal otherwise was outstanding and we both had courses that were above that, if there is such a thing.
She had the turbot which she has not stopped talking about and I had the strawberry burgamot sylabub. I have never tasted anything like it before. Yes we are coming back.
Food was very plain and not at all what I was expecting, however the view was beautiful and the restaurant had a lovely vibe.
Good setting excellent food attentive staff and meeting went well
Out talk french waiter was brilliant. Very professionally, funny etc
They do everything right, but somehow the place lacks soul (or maybe someone’s personal touch). The views across London are tremendous.
Great food and helpful/friendly staff
Service and views amazing. Food looks great but taste wise wasn’t blown away. In my opinion isn’t quite worth the premium price especially after a 13.5% service charge.
Had lunch to celebrate my wife's birthday. Very good service and exceptional food. Really enjoyed their cocktails, starters, main course and deserts. Memorable dining experience. I would highly recommend.
Outstanding, annoyed we have left it so long. Will be back soon
A mix-up over whether we'd booked afternoon tea or lunch, despite selecting 'afternoon tea' as part of our OpenTable booking. The staff could have easily handled this better from the outset, especially as we'd advised upon arrival, not just one member of staff, but two. It wasn't until the third waitress that we were told Oxo had us booked in for lunch booking. Aside from that, we stayed for lunch, which was very tasty, but for the money paid, the level of service wasn't very good and the chairs/furniture looked like more like a chain restaurant than something a bit more upmarket.
Amazing view nothing to say there. But wine overpriced (I knew the labels) and food was, past the great choice and quality of starters, nothing mind-blowing. You'd expect more for the price. But then, it's Harvey Nichols...
Delicious food and great view from the terrace. The crab starter was incredible.
This was good. Slightly disappointing but a nice evening. We opted for the taster menu with wine pairings, delivered so well by the excellent waiting staff team. It wasn’t the greatest but it wasn’t bad. Just rather average and not worth 135£ per head. No amuse bouche and no coffee / mint tea included as a gesture as has been the case with other taster menus. I wouldn’t repeat the experience. It was a good evening, food wise, but sadly no greater than that.
Last meal out with my sons before lockdown
Booked for my dads 60th birthday.
Amazing views, gorgeous food and great service.
Would definitely recommend
It was nice to be back in central London, and I do understand that Covid has taken a huge toll on the industry, and this seemed more obvious at the Oxo Tower than in other restaurants I have eaten at during the later part of 2020. Servers were polite but not as efficient as I would have expected for the amount of service charge that we paid. Starters were fabulous, but the main courses were unfortunately not to the standard that we expected. Difficult to see the business so quiet, and more than happy to help support, but I do feel other places are doing more to make themselves competitive and more welcoming to guests.
Fantastic location, good food, excellent ambiance.
Given current circumstances the team did an excellent job of making us feel welcome and to try and provide a wonderful experience. We ate from the festival menu which was great value and delicious.
One minor criticism was that the restaurant was cold which made the food go cold too quickly.
Great service, great food, great location... would recommend
Originally we had planned on going to the restaurant, but we changed our booking to the brasserie due to the menu at the restaurant! As some of the guests joining us, didn’t like options avaliable on the menu! I had lamb for main & we shared some king prawns to start. I was impressed with the views, however the brasserie had a cafe’ like feel. The chairs were very “school canteen” a long with the tables. The food was very good, the service was slow and it was expensive for what it was. It didn’t have the luxurious feel we expected!
Fantastic service and delicious food
Lovely place and quiet and beautiful view, very long to find the place.
The food wasn’t what I expected as starter was ok.
And the main was good cant go wrong with sea bass.
Well I did get meal deal course 3.
Over all the ok.
Very tentative and polite staff, excellent table service and the food was excellent. Can’t say anything even remotely negative about our experience
Went there for a wedding anniversary celebratory meal - the restaurant is taking a lot of very sensible Covid precautions but still maintaining a great ambience. Food was phenomenal, wine was ideal and the evening overall was a memory for my wife and I to treasure.
Gorgeous venue with fantastic food.
Live music was perfect
Staff couldn’t have been better.
We wanted to try this restaurant for a long time. The food was good however we felt rushed by our server.
Nice Saturday lunch
A lovely meal. Top quality food with brilliant service. Nice views from tables by the window.
Prices have dramatically increased since Covid. It is now overpriced for what you get. The 13.5% service charge is borderline abusive.
Children’s menu is not as good as it used to be with more basic choices of dishes.
We used to come regularly to Oxo for Sunday lunch. We may need to reconsider our choice.
The extra cost of the congestion charge at weekends is not helping.
The gorgeous setting was matched by dinner, which was beautifully presented and perfectly conceived. Service was considerate, informative (for both our food and wine choice) and swift. If I had a criticism it would be that our dinner timing meant we couldn’t select from the chef’s Summer Menu. Eating a la Carte did spiral our costs, which slightly dented the overall feel. Perhaps you could think about adjusting things for dinners moving forwards? Overall, lovely to be back.
Wowza. Simply exceptional
Couldn’t find our reservation, then sat us at the back and told us to wait for another table. Took 20 minutes to even give us a drink while we waited. Then after speaking to the staff they told us that it would be another 30-40 minutes before we could get another table.
Service was excellent, the atmosphere was a little flat but not the restaurants fault more the covid situation. I would certainly recommend it and go again!
Fantastic meal in a great location. Staff were superb as we needed to be reseated after a glass broke. Minimum of fuss and maximum of put you at ease.
