Excellent food experience with friendly staff (thank you Silvia!) in a relaxed environment. Exceptional standard without any pretentiousness. The tasting menu with wine flight is an education in both. Great selection and pairings! 👍

Highly recommend. We had tasting menu and wine pairing at lunch; thoroughly enjoyable. Staff were very friendly and unpretentious yet professional. Bus stop directly outside, so easy to get to without using your car.

Visited on a Wednesday night and thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu. 5 courses for £55 and added a supplementary course for£8. Menu was interesting and varied, quality of food was high, value for money (without a doubt). Beautifully presented. From the outside, located in a parade of shops this little gem could go unnoticed, step inside and you won't be disappointed. Will definitely atelier visit again when in the area.

Despite you confirming the reservation the restaurant was closed - well done to both of you! Luckily I found out by chance when I decided to have a look at the menu a couple of hours before our booking. We were unable to find an equivalent restaurant with availability as it was graduation weekend in Oxford. I’ve contacted the restaurant but haven’t received a reply.

Memorable, exciting and innovative food. Everything tasted amazing. Great value and friendly staff! We are so glad we chose to dine here. We will definitely come back - maybe to sample their fabulous cocktails and nibbles.

Excellent food and service. A little pricey regarding bread etc. but the skills of the chef and service make this a restaurant you will want to return to. I think they should offer complimentary bread / nibbles that would make you feel a little more valued.

Staff were friendly and efficient. Excellent food; both our mains (lamb, halibut) were outstanding. Wine is a little pricey, but after a while you don't notice.

there are many superlatives people use for food reviews. This food exceedes any superlatives I can think off. The food was fantastic the taste was orgasmic the work that had gone into this delightful food we could see was enormous. I can honestly say this restaurant which we have now visited several times is the best restaurant we have ever been to. Just taste the food and be enchanted. The staff are also lovely not in your face but happy to help with any requests you desire. We are gluten intolerant and we were guided to the appropriate dishes by the waiting staff. We shall return as soon as we can. Fantastic

Staff not particularly attentive, asked for champagne and was offered a sparkling wine which was very expensive to not be champagne. Didn’t seem staff acted the “high end” this restaurant used to be. Food was good. We found drinks pricing expensive to not even be the high end drinks we requested and staff could be more friendly and act more proffetionally.

Fresh food which was well presented and had an incredible taste. It was very high quality, but at no point was overly pretentious.
Restaurant was well presented and we were well looked after and not rushed in any manner.
Would highly recommend.

Service was absolutely excellent and we rewarded our server with a generous tip - the food was excellent with only my wife’s sea bass being slightly over cooked, apart from that all other starters mains and desserts were outstanding.

What a gem of a restaurant. My boyfriend and I visited on a Saturday night and both had the tasting menu. Each course was superb. Fantastic food, modern flavour combinations and beautiful plating. Service was attentive but not pushy. Cocktails and wine were amazing. Should be a Michelin starred restaurant - very talented kitchen team. Would highly recommend for romantic evening.

Food was excellent and was service. Piped music could have been a little quieter. Wine was expensive though that is usual unfortunately. Went with my daughter on a visit to Oxford - would definitely go again if in the area. Highly recommended

The food at 215 is of excellent quality, comparable to the food at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons which is about three times more expensive. The best food in Oxford!

A bit of a last minute booking when we realised it was out anniversary! One of the few places with availability on a Sunday lunchtime. We were amazed that they were so quiet but are glad that we could book a table, otherwise we might have missed this gem. The staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable about the food and drinks. I had a mocktail made for me according to a description of the flavours that I like and it was perfect. A real treat as as a non drinker I usually end up drinking water or something sickly sweet. We had the 5 course taster menu which was well balanced and every course was well executed and very tasty indeed. The service was personal but not at all overpowering. The staff all seemed to be well invested and worked well as a team. We wish 215 Kitchen & Drinks all the best for the post Covid future and we will be back!

As long as you can find a place to park in Summertown then this is a lovely place to get out of the rain and enjoy lunch.

Very friendly and efficient service and a clean and simple setting provide a back drop for some interesting and playful dishes.

On the downside our £100 plus bill for a two course lunch for 2 without any alcohol seemed a little steep.

Delicious starter . Very disappointing main . The lamb was tough and lacked flavour . It was surrounded by ‘mush’ . The pork dish was average . Desert was good .

Disappointing interior and ambiente, mostly amateur but polite service, food very good although the 5-5-5 menu was too restrictive and we didn't really see anything we wanted.
