We chose Quod as a place to celebrate an 80th birthday. The staff were very helpful with our more elderly guests. They gave us a table in a quiet corner and allowed us plenty of time. The menu was interesting and the food arrived hot and well-presented. Those who chose bread pudding for dessert were not disappointed. The birthday candle on his pana cotta charmed the recipient. Altogether a memorable meal on a memorable occasion.
The best place for lunch in Oxford. Excellent value for money lunchtime menu. Service consistently good and the brasserie ambience is a delight.
We had a great meal, set lunch menu. Very noise in there, staff were ok nothing special. Would go back and have told a lot of friends.
The service in this place sets a standard that other places can only aspire to. Right from the welcome at the door to the attentive table service throughout - it is flawless operation. We asked for a table by the window and it was waiting for us. The food was divine - we had a carnivore, a fish lover and a vegetarian who all gave top marks to their menu choices. This is the place to be.
What made this evening outstanding was the service. The waitress, Vanessa, was humorous and obliging throughout. She and other staff were highly attentive, noticing when wine needed topping up or when we needed to be left alone and even when one of our party was drinking from another's glass! How impressive is that!?
The food was also really excellent; everyone had game, partridge or venison, and it was really tasty and we thought good value. The only downside was the noise level, but hey, it was Saturday night and the place is deservedly popular. I just wonder whether there is something that can be done about softening the decor or providing more ' booth' seating to improve that?
However, this is the third time I have been to Quod and it is now confirmed as my go-to place in Oxford.
I requested a quieter table by the window and did not get it which is fine. The service was good and helpful in choosing the dishes. The food was average: as starters the tomato soup was ok but my quail was overcooked and the cauliflower puree tasteless and underseasoned. The mains were unremarkable with a reasonable risotto, a cod drowned in samphire and an overcooked and tough partridge. The atmosphere was that of a Saturday evening so busy and loud. Overall a bit disappointed. Much nicer in summer for a light lunch.
Never disappoints! Great food, great wine and fantastic service.
Quail breast starter was a little disappointing, seemed like it had been on the hot plate for too long and small portion of meat for amount of accompanying Elements. Hereford beef fillet made up for it though - it was delicious and cooked perfectly.
Food was very good and staff attentive without being intrusive.
The food is fairly basic considering the price. The venison was very under cooked. And they messed up the cocktails. Service was pretty good
Very good food and service but very noisy. Pleasant lunch place
Always enjoy quod, another lovely evening will be back
Attractive restaurant in centre of Oxford. Good choice of food but not a huge selection. Nice wine list but pricey (about treble retail price).
I don't mind energetic and vibrant restaurants but the noise level was such that we had to shout at each other to be heard.
I had a hair in my main meal which was replaced and the burger was too dry that it just crumbled. Was not the best of first visits to the restaurants
Overall very good food and service. Lovely friendly staff. Unfortunately the table next to ours seemed to be having some sort of reunion and was very noisy. Sadly not everybody is considerate enough to think about how their behaviour impacts on those around them.
Fantastic food and wine. A perfect evening to celebrate our anniversary and my boyfriends 40th birthday. It was noisy but we enjoyed the ambiance.
A buzzy and welcoming atmosphere with charming service and reliable food at any time of day
I really enjoyed my experience. My friend and I who I dined with had talked about going for the set lunch for years. The reason I couldn’t give the food 4 stars was because my friend is a vegetarian and there was only one option for him on the lunch menu which he didn’t fancy. Overall though a great experience and good value.
Pleasant and friendly staff. Food choice good, set menu good value. Perfect venue for meeting friends
This is a favourite lunchtime venue for four friends. Good and reasonably-priced menu choices, prompt and friendly service. Have already booked our Christmas lunch.
Always good to eat here. Not a 5 star review this time as at this busy Sunday lunch the food wasn't hot.
Great service from attentive waiting staff. Food is always sufficiently reliable at Quod but I felt it had improved this time. The risotto was particularly good, which they often have as a special, so I would especially recommend this dish. Pleasant ambiance and comfortable restaurant that’s a good choice for a family get together.
Nice surroundings & lovely food for a birthday celebration for a friend.
Have visited a couple of times before and always had exceptional service and food. This time was no different, but was our first time for Afternoon Tea. We were celebrating my daughter's 21st birthday and were made to feel special. The waitress was attentive without being overbearing and the tea was delicious. Would thoroughly recommend.
Gorgeous lazy afternoon lunch, fab venue, lovely staff.
Large noisy restaurant where the food tastes good but not exceptional as for the cost of the meals you would expect exceptional. Service ok and service charge included when you get your bill. There are better places to eat and you can have a conversation. We’ll try somewhere else next time.
Just one thing, when approaching by car, I talked to them twice (I am from Spain) no one told me I could get fined driving through High St...and signals are small,,,
Very good meal and nice surroundings. Good service. No complaints.

Day's special of roast beef had run out at 2.15 pm on a Sunday. Lamb cutlets very expensive alternative. Starters of artichoke and goats cheese was a mass of salad. Delicious house red wine. Good atmosphere.

Food, atmosphere and service was amazing. Couldn’t have asked for more.
Dear RachelP, Thank you for your lovely review - We're over the moon we managed to impressed you with our food and service - We hope to see you again soon
Really busy and great atmosphere - service was excellent and our food was very good. It’s very noisy (high ceilings and hard floor) so makes normal conversation a little difficult. We were sat at the front - probably better to sit towards the back for a quieter meal.
Dear Andy62, Thank you for your five stars review - We're delighted we managed to impressed you with our food and service - We're always more than happy to accommodate you in a quieter area of the restaurant on future visits if required - We hope to welcome you back again soon.
Lovely food and great service. Always a good place to meet friends and family.
Dear JoannaB, Thank you for your five stars review - We're delighted you all enjoyed your experience with us - We hope to see you again soon.
We were visiting Oxford for my girlfriends birthday and after looking through a few websites to pick out a restaurant I plumped for Quod. What a great choice this proved to be.
Quod provided exactly what I wanted, something special that we'd remember, and I'd happily pay for the scrumptious food and service again.
The menu was excellent and had plenty of options.
Our 2 year old loved her pork ragu tagliatelli and was kept entertained throughout the evening with the crayons and waiter's interaction (something all parents will know can be difficult).
We plumped for pork and ham terrine and crab starters. My crab was truely excellent and Rita enjoyed her terrine. Mains I went for the venison, which was devine and Rita the spatchcock baby chicken which was excellent. Cheesecake and cheeseboard dessert perfectly finished off the meal.
Our waiter was spot on and seemed to appear just as we needed fresh drinks from an extensive list.
I would recommend Quod to anyone thinking about it.
Dear GaryA, Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review - We're delighted we managed to impressed you on your visit at Quod - We look forward to welcoming you and your family back again soon.

Lunchtime visit. Bustling restaurant full of atmosphere.
Great service, friendly, timed well and with good advice.
Pizza and salmon fish cakes both delicious.
My only point would be that the tables are very close together.
Dear JudithW, Thank you for your lovely review - We're absolutely delighted we were able to give you such a great experience. We hope to see you again
Superb meal from fixed price lunch menu - crab starter and steak main (with best chips ever). Add a glass of wine and a coffee. Great experience.
