We had a nice meal in the brasserie on Sunday evening. The views are lovely over the Thames. The food and service was very good and loved the overall experience. The only thing I would say is that for the price you pay I would expect table cloths and more comfortable seating.
There were also lots of children in the restaurant which is ok, but it took the ambuance away from what was to be a romantic evening.

As the title suggests this is not your traditional Afternoon tea, which was what we originaly intended to book, we booked this one by mistake but what a wonderful mistake it was. The views are amazing and even though the weather was not good we had a wonderful time. We sat in the Brasserie and chose the "All About The British Pudding" experince. We were served Sticky toffee pussing, apple crumble, treacle tart and eccles cakes this package came with a gin a, apple and honey cocktail which was warm. All very delicious!! For our daugther we chose the "Theatre Not Afternoon Tea" which came with a milkshake and some lovely deserts to inact the most famous plays: Wicked, The Lion King and Matilda. To finish she was given some popcorn.
Staff were very professional, pleasant, nice and hppy to help. Everyone had a lovely time and my inlaws were very impressed.

Excellent restaurant with lovely view of the London skyline, really good food and friendly helpful staff, it's not a cheap restaurant but well worth the expense if you wanted to treat someone or to celebrate an occasion, highly recommend

Went to the “Oxo Bar” for my daughter’s 18th Birthday lunch where there are 3 main meals on the menu; vegetarian, fish or beef burger. We were aware of this and ok with it.

Unfortunately, by the time we ordered, there were only 2 burgers left, which is a bit poor given that the menu only offered 3 choices!!

Eventually the chef did offer a steak sandwich as an alternative, but by this point we’d decided to go to one of the other numerous restaurants in the area.
The waitress was very apologetic and lovely and did write off our drinks bill, but the situation ruined what was meant to be a special day out.

Such a shame!

Had a lovely meal at the Oxo Tower Restaurant on a weekend away. The restaurant is set out lovely and has some great views towards St Pauls. Staff are friendly, but probably not as attentive as they should be, had to wait a fair while for more drinks whilst seated at our table.
Food is absolutely lovely; however you are paying the price for it, as they say, you pay for what you get. Would definitely recommend the Fillet steak, however perhaps a little disapointed with the extra small potatoes that it came with, if i would have known the size/quantity of them, would have perhaps ordered a side of more potatoes.
Overall, a lovely meal and would recommend the experience to all.
