Oxford Exchange Ratings and Reviews

Everything is great from the food to the service! The menu items are interesting and delicious. The café area with the teas and coffees is charming and inviting. My only complaint is the noise level! It is so loud, you almost have to scream to speak with somebody across from you. Other than that everything is lovely!

All the food was AMAZING! Iced Carmallo was sooooo good, bought another one to go! Lemon pancakes and Tacos were my favorite by far. Great place for breakfast... loved sitting outside. .. kinda. Great outdoor atmosphere but the glass ceiling for lighting and the A/C was perfect for the scorching summer Florida weather! Can't wait to come back next trip to Tampa :)

The food was great and ambiance was very nice. Be sure to make a reservation, as the wait seemed to be long if you didn't. The menu wasn't too large, but everything we had was fantastic! Cute, but pricey shop to browse before or after dining.

This was great! I love the vibe, the service was great, and the food was delicious! My family got the short rib eggs Benedict which were sooooo good and the monkey bread French toast with cinnamon marscapone. So good! I opted for a healthier option with their scrambled egg whites with kale, tomatoes and goat cheese. It came with toast and homemade jam. Everything was delicious! I also had the earl grey latte which was one of the best I've ever had!!!

Love the energy just walking into the OE. Great food. Exceptional employees. We feel welcomed to be back each visit. The front desk host , Steven, immaculately dressed, has a stressful position but consistently greets his customers with a welcome smile. Stevanie at the Tea Bar continues to amaze me with her upbeat attitude and memory of the last teas we ordered. We love the OE's employees, food and atmosphere.

Girlfriends lunch, drinks, then off to museum. Table ready for 6 precisely at noon, welcomed with energy and smile. Vinnie our waiter, made excellent suggestions for both food and drinks. Perfect experience, food excellent, wait staff very attentive and efficient. Atrium seating is a wonderful, bright area with great air conditioning. Will happily return.

On a recent trip to Tampa from Miami, OE filled a whole morning between ogling the gorgeous decor, perusing the books and tchotchkes, trying on eyeglass frames at the Warby Parker, and enjoying a beautiful brunch with my family in the stunning, relaxed, and comfortable dining room. As far as the food: Loved the tea assortment that complemented our meal perfectly. The lavender earl gray iced tea was fragrant and not over-sweet. The chicken burger was surprisingly delicious (usually these are bland). Service was competent and affable, but not exceedingly warm or talkative. Only menu item that was only okay and not top-notch was the fried avocado. Was a tad firm and not terribly creamy and sauce was very good but sparse and not as good as other sauces I've had elsewhere on similar dishes.
Overall a wonderful morning. Spent a half hour or so driving around the charming and nearby Hyde Park area before returning home.

Experiences (brunch's and lunch) were great. Scenic view in sun room wonderful -- love the sky lights and many beautiful plants and small trees. Food always good -- appreciate having Gluten Free bun choice -- be good to have more GF choices -- meat, etc. Favorite -- omelets with Yukon Gold potatoes -- why not serve this all day? Like to see broccoli, asparagus options in omelets.
Service was excellent. "Energy" level (noise) a challenge to hear conversations. Liked seeing guests of all ages and nice to have such a gem as OE in South Tampa! Love the ambiance throughout the facility and enjoyed when had an art / craft fair upstairs.
Appreciate offering feedback and opportunity to express additions to the experience.
Sincerely, Marcia Nelson

I love this restaurant but was frustrated when I asked for more iced tea that it was another 3.75 I don't mind paying for something that I know I am purchasing but found this to be over the top and it was implied that this was the house iced green tea.

Oxford exchange has slowly declined, in my experience. The food is still amazing, as well as the ambiance. However, even with a reservation, and multiples tables clearly sitting empty, we waited over 30 mins for a table, only to be sat at a table that had been sitting empty for at least 15 minutes. Our server was nice, but disappeared after we were given our food, and we had to ask around for someone to find her so we could get our check, and boxes. The dining experience was extremely long and drawn out because of all of this, and makes me rethink going for a relaxing brunch in the future.

The food was absolutely amazing, but on the high side. I sat in an air conditioned room with a fountain and glass ceiling. It created an amazing patio without the harsh heat of Tampa summer. The only thing keeping service from being higher was the rigidness of the menu.

On a weekend trip to Tampa, my Wife and I decided that we couldn't leave the city without brunch at the Oxford Exchange. We'd made reservations for a Monday, but were lucky enough to arrive early on Sunday to get one of two sets of comfortable seats near the window of the restaurant. The decor is quite unique, effort was made to incorporate some of the original design elements of the building mixed with eclectic touches like the hanging of the artwork. The service couldn't have been better. Every effort was made to insure that we enjoy every aspect of the dining experience. Although the drink menu looked interesting, we were too early for alcohol so we ordered tea and fresh squeezed orange juice, both were very good. We started with the fried avocado wedges...considered a small plate, but a meal in itself. It was delicious with the Sambal sour cream. My Wife ordered the Brunch flatbread...I would recommend that you not dine without getting that once. I would never have guessed that it was gluten-free. I got the omelet and couldn't have enjoyed it more. This place was so good that we went back the next day again for brunch, but this time sat in the garden area and ordered two brunch flatbreads and mimosas. No visit to Tampa is complete without eating at the Oxford Exchange.

I had previously been to afternoon tea at the Oxford Exchange, and had a wonderful experience. This last dining experience however was sub par in many ways. First of all, when we asked our waiter if some members of our party could order from the lunch menu, he gave a jokey, long-winded answer that left us still wondering...the answer was no. Then after placing our orders our tea arrived in 5-10 minutes, while the food arrived 20 minutes after that! We didn't notice at first because we were talking, but when we saw our waiter sweeping the floor, we wondered what was taking so long... He NEVER checked on us, or came to explain or apologize. Then when we asked about possibly getting another cup of tea, he said it would be an extra charge. In addition, the food was mostly sweets, even the "scones" were sweet muffins.... All in all, a disappointing experience for what was a special family event.
