The food was delicious and service good. It was quite noisy due to the room set up, numbers and some loud tables although we were moved when we asked.

We had a lovely family evening with excellent service. Allergy advice/help was very good and nice touch with the ‘birthday’ dessert. We will go again. The place had a nice buzz so not intended as a quiet dining venue.

For the price tag (£350+ for 3) this was very, very average. The food was really no better than Cote, but for triple the price. The furniture is almost ikea canteen style and the service, while acceptable, was nothing more than average. At half the cost this meal would be very satisfactory.

The food was great and the restaurant has a lovely ambience. One minor downside is that the waiter didn’t ask us before opening a bottle of still water (not free) for the table. Overall really good and would come back

An amazing lunch with an amazing view. As always the food was perfection, we both had steak and salad and it tasted superb. I live it in the oxo tower, the staff are always super polite and nothing is too much trouble. A great was to spend a relaxing lunch

Very nice restaurant with potentially great views if one gets a front-row table; good food selection and interesting wine list; friendly and efficient service; a bit too noisy for having a conversation

A most pleasant evening with the incredible view of London. A super venue to go for a drink, but like everywhere else in a situation such as this, premium prices are to be expected.
My party of three thoroughly enjoyed the dinner, where we experienced excellent and attentive service.
The starter and main courses were delicious, but the dessert disappointed the two ladies. The staff member dealt with the issue in a totally professional manner, apologizing and removing the item from the final bill. Very good customer service!
At about £75/head this is not a cheap night out, but we will certainly be back for another special occasion in the future.

The service and the food were great - good quality ingredients and well cooked and presented. Issues: large parties at the front blocked the river view completely so dont believe the claim that "you get views from every table" - and secondly, they had a live jazz singer (which was lovely) but they offered us a table right next to tthem- we could touch the singer if we gesticulated a lot with our hands! of course, this was not conductive to been able to speak to our dinner partners so we requested another table- there is no need to have a table so close to the singers - they should re-evaluate this.

Of course the view is the main attraction but finally I come to eat rather than impromptu drinks. Food was delicious - a good range to choose from. Food was fresh and delicious. I had the beef carpaccio - amazing and then vegetarian pasta which was delicious. A friend had the pork which was very pink but to be fair I never eat that anyway.

Wasn’t overly fussed about the singer but it didn’t impact

The stand out in my view was the service - from the waiter who took our order who had the right balance of service without being over the top, and then all food arrives at exactly the same time so there’s no awkwardness or - go on you start.

For me it was the best service - friendly, professional, humour.
Thank you HN team

Food was okay, pasta required a lot of salt to make it taste like anything. Service was slow, we sat with empty plates and drinks in front of us for more than twenty minutes

I specifically requested a table by the window in advance and advised them that it was a special occasion being our anniversary. Ended up at a table 2 in from the window and next to the serving station. Wine chosen wasn’t available and wine served was warm. No recognition at all from the restaurant that I was our anniversary. Others tables celebrating were presented with dessert/cake with candles and writing on the plates.
Overall very disappointed and unlikely to visit again.

We visited the Oxo Tower Brasserie for our anniversary. Everything was perfect from start to end. We asked to be moved from outside as we felt cold and they were very helpful even though they were very busy. The food was delicious and the set menu we chose was excellent value. Will definitely go back again.

Service was very good on the ball fast and efficient. The tables we were sitting at were at different levels there was a part of 7 with 3 tables at different levels
The dirt crab for starters was a little greasy, 3 of us had the pork fillet as the main 1 of us ate the lot the other 2 left 50% of it as it was dry.
Oxo white wine very nice.

An excellent lunch on the outdoor terrace, in shade on the hottest day of the year. We all enjoyed our food and the service was excellent. Particular favourites were the softshell crab starter and the seared scallops main course. Fantastic views of the Thames and beyond.

An early evening outside on the balcony overlooking the Thames is a great way to dine. When the weather is warm and the sun is setting, this is as good as it gets!

Finally I dine at the OXO Tower and mainly due to the views even on a grey day was lovely. We had a light lunch of the roasted salmon salad which was very flavoursome and surprisingly filling. Also presented beautifully. I wouldn't hesitate to come back again.

We went to the OXO Brassiere for my husbands 70th birthday and it was all we could have hoped for. A bottle of champagne greeted us at the restaurant and set the tone for a lovely lunch. While the weather was a little overcast and my, otherwise perfect, soup could have been a little warmer we all enjoyed our meal, the view and the wonderful service.

Beautiful views over the Thames, especially if you can get a window table or if it’s warm enough to sit outside. We thought that this restaurant would be touristy and mediocre, but the food was really good, everything fresh, flavourful and well-seasoned. Lentil salad was excellent, as was sea bass and perfectly seared scallops. Fairly large portions . Service was quick and attentive. Can be quite noisy during peak periods, especially if you’re seated near a large group.

Professional service, and the food was great, and the lunch menu is pretty good value. I don't think it has quite the high quality it aspires to, but overall very satisfied and of course one thing that doesn't change is the outstanding view!

The area once occupied by the bar is now used for tables. This area is away from the big windows with view on the Thames and surrounding buildings, which are the main asset of the restaurant. We were seated unfortunately on that space, hence same price but completely different and much much worse experience.

Amazing location, great service but the food needs some attention; looks like the chief hasn't done any quality checking recently. Nothing terrible but not to the standard you would expect from this location and worse than the last time I visited.
