    Really good breakfast Ambience fine but we were early and it was nearly empty so not really relevant Sausage could have been better, everything else great. Perfect poached eggs, excellent freshly squeezed orange juice

    One of the best food menus on a bottomless brunch. Service was great - very attentive and drinks promptly replenished.

    Food and wine was good. We were a little confused we were handed the bill and then shortly after had the card machine bought to us to pay when we hadn't asked for the bill. We understand there is sometimes a time limit on tables, but it wasn't busy so would put me off going back

    We went for the bottomless brunch experience. The food was excellent and the portions were substantial. The choice of cocktails was very limited and dissppointing. They were served in small whiskey size tumblers and in the 2hour slot we only managed to get 4 each but had to call the waitress every time we needed a refill.

    Location: Southampton Oxford St Second bottomless brunch and once again was terrible - It was the worst bottomless brunch we have ever had in Southampton. Sat down to be told immediately “I need to take your order as the kitchen closes” We clearly hadn’t even read the menu so straight away not a great start. Suggestion maybe don’t take bookings at the time the kitchen closes? When the food came out it was poor. However we could over look this as being a bottomless brunch we were mainly there for the drinks, however the waiter and waitress come over twice in 2 hours to take a drink order. We continuously had to go up to the bar for another drink; and at one point was stood there for 5/10 minutes whilst there was no one to be seen. I could understand if they were busy but there was 1 other table in!! it was apparent they just could not be bothered to come over to the table. Then the cherry on top was being charged a £20 service charge for non existent service and also over charged as they charged for a meal when it was incl in the bottomless brunch. Such a shame as this bar use to be great when it was in Bedford Place. Would never do a bottomless brunch here again. Want a decent brunch - go to turtle bay.

    Had breakfast which was luke warm, poached eggs tasted of vinegar which were placed on the toast making this soggy. Vinegar water in beans which were cold. Very disappointed. They did offer something else but we didn't take the offer. No discount and even charged a service charge of £3.25. Won't be returning!

    Because when we arrived to the restaurant at 16.00 we were told it was shut. So we never got to experience the restaurant. We had to pay to park for nothing.

    Our visit to XOXO Southampton was a laid back brunch with friends and family. The food was excellent. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble. The coffee is very good and the Baby Guinness shots were good too. All in all a good experience. Thank you.

    Not a great start as didn’t seem to be aware of my booking. Toilets were a disgrace, some of the worst I’ve seen. Bottomless brunch was good value, friendly staff but sadly let down by shabby venue and terrible toilets.

    We came here for breakfast. I had steak and eggs which was lovely. Loads of steak. My husband had the full English with their own baked beans, which looked incredible. I had a Pornstar martini and my husband had a coffee. It was the start of a day trip to IOW. Service was fantastic and the place had a lovely vibe. We will be back

    I’ve had some lovely experiences here, but overall was disappointed with service on this occasion. It was a birthday but didn’t feel special and despite having pre-booked were wedged into the back. I think perhaps they were understaffed which isn’t the servers fault - maybe won’t book for a special occasion but still good for drinks

    We really enjoyed our visit to XOXO, we received a friendly greeting as we entered. We were shown to our table and given menus and had a drinks order taken, the coffee was good quality. Our food arrived promptly and was hot, well presented and tasty. I can recommend the french toast. The restaurant had a nice ambiance and the staff were friendly throughout our visit. We will be back for the pancakes!

    Food was great, but we had to keep finding someone to order more drinks, they never came to us first, and we didn't sit down and have order taken till 1.25 and drink didn't arrive till after that and they stopped out bottomless brunch at 3 which wasn't fair at all!

    There was a customer sitting next to us who spent the entire meal talking very loudly on a FaceTime call. I would recommend servers are trained to identify this and politely ask them keep their voice down as it did impact our experience for breakfast.

    The noise level was moderate, only because there was a large table behind us. But we went for bottomless brunch, the service was initially good but after the first hour or so we had to flag down waiting staff for more drinks, not something you should expect from brunch so this was a little disappointing. One of the members of staff looked quite miserable and didn't appear she actually wanted to be there. Food was great and the price of the brunch was reasonable, being cheaper than a lot of other places. Overall, I would recommend XOXO, but after the initial experience, I'd hope the willingness from the staff would improve. Altough this was only based on one visit, I'm sure it would be better next time.
