    This is our go to restaurant for celebrations. The food and atmosphere is always wonderful. It can be a little noisy when full which is the only negative thing I can say. Service is excellent and staff knowledgeable and helpful.

    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.
