First visit Monday lunchtime for birthday celebration.
Surprised by how few diners there were but that suited us well. Slightly faded/tatty feel especially on looking at the outside seating area. Would go again. Warm welcome,

Good setting
Slightly cold room
Very quick later service with polite and kind servers
Good came slow initially and then quick when second course began
Good wine list although not extensive...which is good.

Slightly overpriced for what isn’t fine dining

We had the special fixed menu at a fixed price. Thought it would be spartan or the ‘poor mans’ equivalent to the a la carte, but no! The food was wonderful and the ambience of the OXO tower is still superb :)

This my first time at the OXO Tower. I will be back. Great food, wine and service with a fantastic view of the Thames and London. Can't wait for summer to come so I can enjoy a drink on the terrace.

Absolutely lovely. Venue, and service from all staff from reception to the dining table was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed the canapes, starters, main & my favorite the 'dessert -ganache chocolate' could have been bigger.
However, would highly recommend my friends,family & colleagues at work.
Thank you

I suppose one would not expect the restaurant to be bursting full on a very wet mid October lunchtime but I was surprised that far less than half the tables were occupied especially so because when I booked I was told that we should be prepared to vacate our table by 2:30 to allow for the next sitting. By the time we left at about quarter to three the place was all but empty.

We had a great lunch the food was good and the portions modest, as I prefer. The only complaint would be that I felt the before lunch drinks were overpriced as was the wine menu generally with little at the modest end of the scale.

The whole experience was excellent from start to finish. Reception staff were very efficient, waiting staff very knowledgeable about the menu and checked about any possible allergies and the wine waiter very helpful. All the staff we saw very extremely pleasant and a credit to the restaurant.
The menu was interesting and diverse offering vegetarian and vegan options and the food when it arrived was superb both in quality and presentation.
The restaurant was clean, bright and a great location and even though it was Sunday lunchtime and busy the noise levels were just right.
one point which really impressed me was the fact that although we were eating on an offer (London Restaurant festival month) at no time were we treated any differently then those dining 'a la carte', a point other restaurants really should take note of.
I would have no hesitation in either returning or recommending OXO Tower to others.

Fabulous venue with views across the Thames to St Paul’s, very relaxed ambience, good place to meet and chat. We had the £39 daytime offer of three courses with glass of champagne which is great value and lovely food. The service and attention was first class. Our only complaint was that they clearly seek to push up the £££ per head with drinks which are horrendously expensive - cheapest glass of wine around £10-11 and that’s just a small glass, cheapest bottle starts around £40, and you can easily pay £60-£70 plus for anything better than “house wine”! That gripe aside, we had a wonderful meal and experience there which I would recommend to anyone!

Excellent Lunch and very many thanks to our waitress who took time to explain which items could be made gluten free, she certainly went above and beyond . I will be coming back very soon. The only cheeky thing was being charged for a bottle of water, then being topped up with tap water.

We had a table by the window, with a lovely view over southbank at sunset. The service was very friendly, prompt and professional. Our food from the London Festival menu was delicious, and so value for money. It was our 25th wedding anniversary, so a fittingly lovely experience! I have dined here before, and will do again.

Came here to enjoy the London Restaurant Festival menu for lunch. Have been wanting to come here for a nice meal for some time and the LRF menu made it really good value. The restaurant is lovely with amazing views and friendly service from all the staff. The food was very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend for special occasions.

We were here for a special occasion. The view and atmosphere was lovely, very relaxing indeed. Unfortunately the food didn’t match up to the view. I’ve been to the brasserie before and that was outstanding, but the restaurant wasn’t good. My starter of pork belly was bland, and the main of lamb had unrendered fat and was chewy.
I’d definitely return to the brasserie, but not the restaurant.
Wine chap was very lovely, our main waiter however was a little bit grumpy.
