An excellent meal, particularly the mushroom veloute, but everything was good. And very helpful, attentive service. It's a pity they are closing!

Wonderful food - the mushroom veloute was such an incredible surprise. The set lunch menu was good value, although the wine is a little pricey so order carefully.

We had not been to 215 since March 2020 when it was still called The Oxford Kitchen and were delighted to find that everything was still of a very high standard. We thoroughly enjoyed the taster menus and could not fault anything on the night.

My wife and I visited 215 to celebrate a Birthday and an Anniversary we both took the Vegetarian Taster menu which was exceptional - the Chef also provided a Dairy Free option for my wife.

The whole experience was also made even more enjoyable by the friendly efficient service.

If you are in Oxford and want a meal to remember this is a restaurant I would recommend

£65 tasting menu, the food was fabulous! Superbly presented, unusual flavour combinations, great variety. Our favourite was the venison with salted and pickled blackberries.
We weren’t rushed and had a very enjoyable evening. Small plates but there were plenty of them so we left feeling very full! Service was great and the staff were very attentive.

We had previously visited the Oxford Kitchen, but last night was the first time we'd returned since the name change and rebranding. And I am delighted to say it's just as good as it ever was. We had a superb meal, with well-chosen wines and utterly delightful, charming service from the front of house team.

My wife and I went to 215 for our anniversary last night, we last visited when it was the Oxford kitchen (before the pandemic) and the experience was as amazing as ever!

I gave 215 5 stars for everything except value, to be clear you don't dine at 215 for a good value meal, you dine there for amazing food, service, atmosphere and in our case special occasions, it's an opportunity to treat yourself to some of the best cuisine Oxford has to offer.

The tasting menu did not disappoint, the courses were varied but went so well together at the same time, amazing flavours, smells and textures with a great wine pairing.

Thank you for a fantastic night to remember.
