The service was excellent, and we were impressed that gluten free bread was available so that one of our party didn't have to be left out while we were waiting to order our mains.
The noise level was a bit high, which made conversation amongst the whole group (5) a challenge, but other than that it was wonderful food, good drinks selections, and fantastic staff across the board.

The food was delicious, you could tell that the staff were quite stressed but that was understandable because it was very busy.

Only thing that we felt was quite funny was the fact that, for £13 you literally got 2 scallops as a starter. Nothing else. So there was apsolutely no value for money with that specific meal. Everything else was great!

The restaurant is located in a very unique building that was perfect if you are celebrating a special occasion - in our case a birthday. The food was AMAZING , we started with the sharing tapas which had just the right amount for two people. Ordering the halibut and ribeye for mains everything was cooked to perfection and simply delicious. Cocktails were damn good too really well made with a nice touch of fresh herbs. (Pisco sours) I normally don’t have dessert but the menu was too tempting so I have a brûlée which was magnificent! Staff were very friendly and attentive without overdoing it like some other places. We found the prices fairly reasonable starter mains desserts and cocktail cost us £114. Overall a really wonderful experience. Could not fault anything about this place and we can’t wait to go back!

The setting and food were absolutely gorgeous and well worth the price. The service required a little more attentiveness with glasses often left empty for quite some time and generally was quite slow. This may be down to one member of the party arriving late but we were left hungry for quite some time.

A unique, iconic setting with decor that manages to have the right balance of the formal and the informal.
Interesting daily menu, with standard dishes and some unusual choices. Full on Artichoke Heart was magnificent, and a terrific selection of fresh fish, filleted and on the bone.
Definitely a restaurant to visit on a regular basis when visiting Oxford (or if you are lucky enough to be a local!)

Staff were good but the burgers were termed very 'average' by those in the party that ate them. As the cost was more than average, this was disappointing.
The wine list is very geared to the top end of the market leaving very little below the £50 level.

Ideal for our pre-theatre meal as they serve food all day. They don’t have their own parking but we found free parking in one of the residential streets just 5 minutes away.
Loved the ambience in the large conservatory. Service was good, waiter helpful explaining the menu. Liked the starter and desert course choices, main courses didn’t inspire me, but probably just a personal thing!
Overall, a very enjoyable meal but not quite good enough to get any ‘excellent’ ratings.

We enjoyed a relatively quiet mid-August lunch in Gee’s, opting to choose from the Express Lunch menu. The food was simply prepared but made with good quality ingredients so the salad starter was light and fresh and the chicken thighs with thyme and courgettes were particularly tender and tasty. The service was friendly and swift (but not rushed).
Good wines by the glass.
