    Wonderful service from a highly attentive and friendly team of staff. Manager was particularly attentive to the needs of my son with multiple allergies and bar staff mixed me a bespoke cocktail 🍸 when nothing on menu “tickled my fancy”. And to top it off, some lovely live jazz in the background. A most lovely afternoon. Would definitely recommend. Thank you.

    Went here for our 30th anniversary, from the moment we were met at reception the staff were fantastic. We had asked for a river view table and they accommodate our request. But only after being seated for a few minutes we were offered a table nearer to the river again. Service was first class throughout, food was fantastic and the sunset was amazing. Oxo definitely went the extra mile to make it a really special evening for us. Thanks to all that made it happen.

    The food was excellent. The service was superb. The view of the Thames was wonderful. This is a high end, classy and pricey restaurant. I would have given it a 4 star review but for the fact that a bottle of water cost almost £6.00. Despite this I'd recommend this establishment

    View: Great. Food: Not so great. Cocktails: Good. Service: Great. Verdict: If you can sit on the balcony on a nice day then it's worth going. Otherwise I wouldn't go for the food alone.

    Yum! Did I say YUM! Wow this was a perfect evening. The food was delicious. Atmosphere was romantic. Views were spectacular. But it was little pricey, but worth the cost. If you decide to try this restaurant make sure that you're making a reservation for the actual restaurant and not at the Brasserie, which is located next door. And reservations are absolutely necessary. It's located on the South Bank in London which is a really happening area, so afterwords can easily enjoy some of the local bars or just walking around and enjoying the scenery.

    This restaurant is top quality. They have a beautiful view and an amazing atmosphere. It was my fiancees birthday and we were also celebrating something else also which the manager knew from my Reservation email. I had one special request which we couldn't promise but it was still fulfilled. From the food and drinks to just the service they provided, it was beyond perfect. I would highly highly recommend this spot if you want a special night with a significant other or just want a good place to eat!

    ♿️✅Accessible lift to either the brasserie/bar to your right and the restaurant to your left. They do provide nice wide walkways to both venues and good seating options as well. The staff are amazing along with the absolutely stunning food and cocktails not to mention the view! Came here for the afternoon tea with champagne, it was amazing! The food was just incredible, so many different sorts of tasters. It may look small but I couldn't finish it all and was able to take some home in a carry bag!

    Two words - Pretty average! The food was such a let down at Oxo tower! So average that I don't think I'll be coming back! The porn star martinis (£17) were delicious though, so we kept them coming. For starter I had roasted duck, I think I was actually given was a thin layer of duck breast with chunks of peaches? I couldn't help myself to tell the waiter that I wasn't impressed with the starter, who very politely offered to change it and I had the seared tuna instead, which was 10 times better! The ambiance was so loud that we could barely hear each other. After the starter the waiter offered us a "better" table next to the balcony, so we moved there, where there was a lady singing very sloooooow that it was almost painful to listen too. As a main I ordered a veil t-bone steak which I wanted medium, my friend also ordered a medium rib eye BOTH were Rare not even medium-rare but Rare. I still got the taste of the raw meat in my mouth, when I told the waiter, Mark who I must say was very helpful, polite and understanding, he offered to put it back in the grill. When I said no thanks, he offered something else instead, but I was too upset and a bit embarrassed that the food didn't hit my standards, as it was so average, that I said no thanks I'm done. Oxo tower claim to be a brasserie that's why I expected a perfect 10 medium steak instead we both got a raw ones, and at the end of the night I was eating my chips but then I was like I'm in a brassiere eating chips, so I thought to myself this is ridiculous! I'm almost certain I won't be back! I must say that for such an iconic restaurant like Oxo tower the least I expected was the manager to come to the table to see what's the matter. Instead I saw him looking at the table but he couldn't be bothered to come and speak to us. He totally epitomised the standard of the place - disappointing!

    Good food, great views and reasonable prices, but let down a little by slightly offhand service. We visited with a party of ten; some ate from the £35 quick menu and others ate a la carte. All the dishes on the quick menu also appeared on the full menu - you can save about £15 if you are prepared to restrict your choice. All three courses were excellent quality for the price, and the portions were generous. The meal was let down by the chocolates at the end which had a white bloom and tasted powdery. When I pointed this out, the waiter told me that he know about this and assured me that they were "perfectly safe to eat". He missed the point that my final mouthful of the meal was a disappointment. It would have left a far better impression if they had not served chocolates at all until fresh replacements could be delivered.

    It was many years that I hadn't been here but each time it's been something nice. The staff is attentive but to capture the best experience it's best to have a reservation of course. Having a spot on the terrace on a rare warm and sunny day is the ideal time, and luckily my spot with friends was in a good place where traffic wasn't too distracting with customers walking back and forth. The food is very nice with good reasonable portions.

    Views are the reason to come, but the food is equally worth a trip. Keep it on the brasserie side rather than the overly pretentious restaurant
