This was one of the best afternoon teas my daughter and I have ever had. First of all the front doors were opened for us by two gentleman in smart dress welcoming us in, then the front desk seemed really pleased we were having afternoon tea there, saying how lovely. We were seen to our seats quickly and and had the menu explained to us, The table looked beautiful especially the tea set. We are both vegetarians and were bought out an array of sandwiches and cakes of course, which were delicious including two each of what tasted like home made scones, with two different jams and clotted cream. The tea was very good and my daughter had coffee.The staff were very attentive and couldn't do enough for us. We were given this treat as tokens to say thank you from my son and daughter in law for helping with their wedding and we can't thank them enough. Even down to other afternoon teas we have had with tokens, and having been charged admin/service charges of £9.00. Thank you for a memorable day.

Booked Oscar as I used to visit there inbetween meetings and its a good sociable lunch spot for meeting people in town. The prices have really inflated and £21 for a chicken caesar salad is really over the top, it's also far noisier than before. Still, a nice spot, but not great for trying to hear someone or have an intimate lunch.

Terrible and discriminatory — we came for brunch and were greeted by a waiter who claimed that he had to take our card to start a tab — for a brunch meal?!!! He didn’t ask for the card from the neighboring table, so I have to imagine we didn’t look especially trustworthy to him. I have to wonder if it had to do with my husband’s ethnicity.

I asked for a brunch deal with a choice of Prosecco, at which point the waiter haughtily informed me they ‘only have Champagne.’ (The menu explicitly says Bloody Mary or Prosecco for the brunch deal)

The tea and drinks came full 15 minutes after the order, which seemed like needlessly long for a fairly empty restaurant. The food came much later still and my eggs were cold. It then took us around 5 minutes to try to get the waiter’s attention for the bill — my husband ended going inside since we failed.

Beautifully decorated and very comfortable restaurant. Unfortunately it was very empty tonight (Bank holiday Monday) but there was a guitarist playing which was lovely. Service was good and friendly. Food excellent and portions were a good size. A little bit pricey but finding that everywhere seems to be putting prices up. That said had a lovely meal and nice end to a great weekend

Charlotte St Hotel and Oscar's Restaurant is always a great option for dinner ... the set menu and wine choice are good value and the service is wonderful. I'm also a big fan of the cozy cinema in the basement ...

Set menu was disappointing unfortunately. Food was small and not great. Drinks are expensive, partially justified by the great service and surrounds, but overall value was poor given the low quality of food. Such a shame.

We had great service and the food was excellent. The location is walking distance to the British History Museum. They served Gluten Free bread prior to the meal which was excellent. I had the fish, risotto and the soup of the day for starters. The fish was cooked, deboned and the sauce was excellent over the fish. I had a chocolate desert to finish the meal and the evening. We had wine with the meal. The wine was good and the servers are knowledgeable about the wine list and made a great selection. The staff understood my allergy and communicated with the other servers and chefs. My wife is vegetarian and had a great meal also. I would recommend this restaurant especially for gluten free diners like me and will return when in town.

Lovely experience overall - incredibly attentive staff and great service. My only criticism is that my friend ordered from the menu that included the buffet, only for it to be packed away before he had got to it, without being told the time it finished. They did rectify this though with an apology and they brought back the dishes to allow him to have what he wished.

We had a great waiter and the starters (rib) was amazing. However the vegan main course was inedible - the chef clearly cannot make vegetables and tofu taste like anything and they were just swimming in oil. Such disappointment. Thankfully great service rescued the day! I would visit again but maybe for breakfast or coffee only.

The hotel is stunning and the service was excellent. The food was terrible. Bland and over cooked in a microwave, minimum portions so we went next door and had pizza express. Menu for lunch was very limited. Would not go back to eat again.

I'd recommend Oscar, but with reservations. The room is lovely but the music too loud and too clubby, especially for a Sunday evening when I went. something more relaxing would have been preferable. Also the food is a bit, 'meh' and not terribly good value for money. Oscar's menu needs an upgrade!

We had a lovely time. The venue is vibrant but laid back, food is lovely and wholesome. Overall the service was great, friendly staff but I had to mark it down because an item was left off our order and 1-2 other details missed. This did not taint the overall experience as the staff were very warm and helpful and the whole brunch was very enjoyable. We will definitely go back.
