The perfect setting for my birthday lunch. We were able to get a table outside which was wonderful as it was a lovely day. Such a great view! The food was gorgeous, particularly the burrata and very reasonably priced for the wonderful setting. We were able to make use of the EOTHO offer which was still running in September which was an added bonus.

Food was exceptional.
It was a shame that glasses and cutlery weren’t laid out on the tables, so arrived at a very bare looking table. Not sure if this is due to COVID-19. We weren’t particularly happy where we were initially placed but staff made a great effort to relocate us which was much appreciated.

Had lunch in the brasserie - great view, my sardines were perfect and enjoyed the chicken both from summer menu. Service was great and despite it being quieter than normal the restaurant had a nice amount of people making it lively enough but not manic.

The exceptional service truly deserves a 5 star. The food is good and of quality but nothing very special as it is a brasserie. Great for a weekend brunch/ lunch. The restaurant and staff have taken good precaution with covid-19 while maintaining a personal touch and I like the no-manual and self-scan QR code way of operation.

Im old enough to remember Oxo as a good quality restaurant but it’s clear that these days they are trading just on a fantastic view and their reputation. The food was very well... nothing special, just about bland.

Must do better. Can do better.

Always have a great experience and on this occasion the waiter picked up it was someone’s birthday (we only mentioned it once) and came out with a candle in the pudding and happy birthday written on the plate. It made the day.

A welcome return to dining in London. Seated outside on a warm evening. Tables all nicely separated. Constant thorough informed cleaning.
Food was struggling to get back to normal quality. Steak over cooked but replaced in 4 minutes. Prawns were wonderful. Celeriac in satay slightly dry but nice combination. Cabbage not fully charred so a little limp. Maybe I am too picky.
Greeting staff and others, especially waiter Leo superb.
Loud, drunk man at nearby table, foul mouthed and offensive disturbed us for 2 hours. My companion urged me not to intervene. Eventually they drifted off.
Still a classy place.

I requested a table by the window and they did not disappoint. We were a group of 6 and sat in the corner on a round table where everyone could enjoy the fabulous views of the Thames and beyond. My only criticism was that there was a fairly large bone in the ox cheek ravioli. However the staff apologised for this and took the dish off the bill. It was despite this a very lovely evening.

Another superb meal at the OXO tower. It was my lady’s birthday, and the staff gave us a table by the window giving a fabulous view.
Delicious food and generally very good service created just the impression that I wanted.
I was a little disappointed that a token cake/dessert was not presented to her at the end of the meal, after the excellent start of table choice.

Went for a friend's birthday they were trialing a new menu has we know this we wouldn't have booked.. For starter I had the onion soup which in face was just a bowl of soup with some bread on as the dreams soaked up all the liquid... For main we had the pork schnitzel which was dry we didn't eat and it was taken off of the bill but left dissatisfied as this was a treat for a friend's birthday and neither of us enjoyed the food

Being New Years eve the brasserie was packed. Despite booking only table free was on top of the waiting station. But staff could not have been more helpful and had a lovely lunch at a window table in the bar. First class service like this is what differentiates most restaurants these days.

Lucky to get a window seat which is one of the reasons people come to dine here so the evening started well. I had the squid starter which was pleasant enough followed by the josper cooked chicken which unfortunately was very dry and tough, it tasted okay but the texture was not great. My wife choose the prawns and the belly pork which she enjoyed. Service was good.
