Excellent Sunday lunch. Just a little noisy whilst eating but this is due to the building I guess. For a Yorkshire man £20.00 for a Sunday lunch is much higher that we would pay back at home. But. The beef was cooked so well - melt in your mouth beef! Well done for that. Also, the Yorkshire puddings were very good too. The staff were very friendly and looked after us well. With drinks a £71.00 bill for two for Sunday lunch was just a little over the top I thought.

Thank you so much for your review. We're sorry the price point didn't impress. We're delighted however that the quality shone through - we try to make sure our prices reflect that. Don't forget there is a superb value Express lunch menu Monday - Friday 3 courses for £17.95. We hope you give us another chance soon

We enjoyed an outstanding evening at Gee's on Saturday night. Its informality is its strongest suite; the seating is relaxed and the noise of everyone's conversation surrounds you making the whole conservatory feel strangely communal yet intimate through its anonymity. The service was faultless and the food both generous and reasonably priced. We'll be back and have recommended others planning to visit should book.

Fantastic service and atmosphere. Food was great too. I was an hour late due to an accident on the motorway and the staff made no fuss regarding the table booking, they were ever so pleasant and accommodating. If this was a London reservation, we would have all been left hungry :-) thank you to everyone at Gee’s for the fab service!

The fish was raw in the centre. I told the waitress and she Contradicted me saying that it wasn’t. , I told her that i did not eat fish with blood in it, parts of it were cooked. She prodded it several times, took it to the kitchen where it was inspected and brought it back to say that if it was cooked again it would toughen, so I insisted that I couldn’t eat it this way. She took it again and it was cooked again, the fish came back looking handled by a few people but I couldn’t send it back as I didn’t want to upset our guests. I didn’t like the attitude of the waitress she should have immediately listened and tried to correct the situation. Obviously, she wasnt trained.
We then had another disruption in the restaurant when two members of staff started ironing tablecloths in front of us. Why couldn’t they do their ironing somewhere else instead of distracting the guests. Poor waitressing, poor food and poor atmosphere.

Gee's
Responded on 30 November 2019

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, and highlighting an obvious shortfall in the service levels here. No wait staff should contradict you - as a standard response we should be offering you a new dish, or cooking your current one more thoroughly. You are absolutely right about this. The ironing, is something about which we had no choice. The table was in use prior to a wedding party who had specifically asked for table cloths which they provided. We're sorry for your experience

Really enjoyed our dinner here- the ambiance was lovely and the food was good. One point they could've improved on was timing- we felt a bit rushed (for no reason too- we were dining around 9 so no one was going to be taking our table afterwards). We hadn’t finished our cocktails and starters before they were bringing our mains to the table. Other than that, a very lovely evening in a pretty setting with attentive staff.

A great find in Oxford. Beautiful restaurant just a little out of the centre, but well worth the short walk. Lovely staff, great food and a really nice buzz about the place. Clearly gets very busy so definitely book. Its sister restaurant The Parsonage would certainly be worth checking out as well - we stopped for an after dinner cocktail on the way home from Gees - also a lovely place.

Gee's is one of the most beautiful places in Oxford. I went there on a Saturday afternoon to have an aperitivo with my friends. We ordered a bottle of wine and some sides (fries and courgettes). The price was reasonable as we divided the bill in 5 people. The fries portion is quite big, the courgettes were lovely and light. We were given some lovely bread to dip in olive oil, which was delicious. I will definitely look forward to going there again

food and reception excellent but the accoustics are slightly strange in that you cannot often hear the person sitting opposite - i think this is to do with the high piitched roof.

We had lunch at the restaurant on Sunday `10th November. I chose lamb because last time I was there, I chose beef which was quite fatty. Unfortunately the lamb was worse than the beef was the time before and, therefore, I am afraid I hardly touched the meat. The vegetables and Yorkshire pudding were very nice. Two of our party also had the lamb and agreed it was quite fatty, while the fourth member of the party had the halibut, which he said was excellent. The apple crumble and sticky toffee pudding were excellent.

We had an anniversary meal at Gee’s that was really enjoyable. The staff were very helpful, the beautiful setting in a glasshouse was just stunning and the food was really delicious. Highly recommend the Tapas starter, a perfect dish with so many different flavours. It’s noisy (probably because of the glass) but our meal still felt intimate. Would love to go back.

Lovely venue, friendly and helpful staff, excellent service and some of the best food we have had for a business lunch. In particular, we were all impressed by the balanced menu for those who do or don't eat meat - all options were beautifully presented, clearly using very fresh ingredients expertly cooked and were delicious without exception. Of particular note was the homemade ice cream (chocolate and pistaccio were the two flavours I chose). The best ice cream I have ever had and I have tried many! Highly recommended restaurant for business, family or couples. Wonderful.

Booked a table for 4 At 9pm, was sat in the bar for half an hour then given the my table at 9:30.

Staff handled it very professionally and were extremely apologetic and offered the bar drinks on a complimentary basis.
It was a little disappointing especially as we had two children and by the time we started to eat it was 10pm.
why I get it a three is the quality of the food that came serviced, very average I can tell it was the last table, the oil used to cook the chips was black and greasy,peppercorn steak sauce ruined the steaks. Scallops overcooked etc

I am sure if we order our food at 9pm it would have arrived with a little bit more finesse!!
