Oxford Exchange Ratings and Reviews
Four people in a booth was very crowded. ...
Four people in a booth was very crowded. The base of the table made it difficult to get in and out. This restaurant has a lovely outdoor feel room that is more spacious. We were not seated there and had no option but to take what was offered. Food is always good and the server should have told the guest at our table that the pancake portion was large enough to share with four people we had a reservation made weeks ago but will specify seating next time.

This place is a gem. Very proficient wait staff is super for recommendations, and is very available without hovering. The food is excellent, especially breakfast/brunch items we've sampled. Additional bonuses are nearby parking, the UT for post-meal strolling, and the tea/coffee bar and shopping at OE. Highly recommended.

I set my expectations on service, experience & food quality high. However the staff at Oxford Exchange rose to the occasion and impress my friends & I greatly. I will recommend it to all my friends and coworkers.

Over fussed food served cold and devoid of flavor (for all that) by vapid, apathetic servers out of an expensive and limited menu.
The only reason to frequent this place is the great setting, which just for coffee or tea is truly endearing - BUT - the condescending attitudes of staff and poor flavor of high-priced food is disgraceful, and it's inconsistent with the stated values of the endeavor.

There is nowhere in Tampa Bay quite like Oxford Exchange. Though it's a bit of a pricey venue in terms of cost, it's well worth the ambiance and general atmosphere. The table dining service is always worth it and the food has always been good. Staff are extremely kind and helpful. OE is absolutely a splurge for the average person but it's one I can't stop making!

Went to the Oxford Exchange this past weekend with the women in my family to have the afternoon tea. Everyone in the group was very pleased with the selection of teas, tea sandwiches, scones, and sweets presented. The building is gorgeous and has a wonderful atmosphere. We will definitely be back1

We had the high tea. It was elegant. The sandwiches and sweets were all very good. Service was attentive. A wonderful selections of teas.
If you want the high tea and book on-line make sure you put on the comments that you are booking for the high tea - if you just make reservations they will assume you just want lunch and there is no place to designate except in the comments section.

An absolute gem and MUST have when considering dining options in South Tampa... whether for business, personal, or Sunday brunch - GREAT FOOD and PLEASANT Dining Experience with wonderful UNIQUE menu items sure to satisfy! On Sunday was a little loud for brunch business but during the week meetings have not been an issue... I think it was just the weekend crowd.

Went for Saturday breakfast with relatives visiting from out of town. Oxford Exchange is a fun and interesting place and the restaurant itself is great. Wonderful food and service. Only drawback is the noise level due to the nature of the building acoustics. But this is a fun place to visit and we had a great time. Our server was excellent.

Had a brunch date with my husband. Got the perfect table by the window and a very pleasant and knowledgeable waiter and wait staff. Everything we ordered from mimosas to dessert was delicious and perfectly prepared. Lots of choices and lots of flavors. Its a beautiful restaurant as well. We love coming here when we are in town. Can't wait to come back.

MY boyfriend and I made a reservation in advance for seating in the outdoor/atrium greenhouse looking area on Open Table before flying into Tampa from Philly. We got perfect seating 15 minutes before our reservation was scheduled for and the food/drinks/atmosphere was phenomenal! Can't recommend this place enough. It was a combination of everything we love all in one place. Beautifully designed and decorated. I would go back in a heartbeat for another Saturday brunch!

it's a wonderful room(s), but the tables are packed so tightly together and all of the building interior surfaces are hard that the noise level is utterly unacceptable. there is no way to speak with someone at your own table. it is impossible to have an adult conversation in this place. although the physical surroundings are interesting, it is simply not worth the lousy experience due to the extreme noise. DONT GO

The food was average and for the price we expected the food to be much better. My chopped salad was a plate full of lettuce with almost nothing else in it. When we pointed this out to our waiter he apologized and brought out a plate with dates and cheese . When you pay $17.00 for a salad it would be nice if it were served with a roll or some sort of crackers or something with it. The atmosphere was terrible. It was a ladies luncheon and it was so extremely loud in there that not only could we not hear each other but three of us had a headache by the time we left. The only good really good thing about our lunch was that our waiter was very pleasant and very accommodating.
