Oxford Exchange Ratings and Reviews
I went on a Friday afternoon and there was an insane amount of people. Was hoping for much less of a crowd. It was so loud, which was a little annoying. The food was fantastic but I was disappointed that the restaurant had such a minimal dessert list (maybe two options?). I really do love the OE and the vibe there but was put off by the amount of people there and noise level. Was hoping for a quiet and relaxing lunch with a friend.
Great food and ambiance. Service is always slow every time with every server I have had. Not bad service but just seems like you have to waive them down to get the check or a refill...I still eat her at least once a month and recommend it to friends because the food and atmosphere are awesome.
I would recommend my friends to go to this restaurant but not on a Sunday for brunch. This was my first time going there for brunch and it was super busy, noisy, and the server was not happy about being there at all. It was my birthday and I took an out-of-town friend there because I loved my previous experience on a week day. The main courses were delicious but the coffee or milk had a weird taste, and the red velvet cupcake my friend bought for my birthday was super dry. Overall, it was not a pleasant experience.
OE offers great ambience, and a nice varied selection of hot drinks. The chicken which I've had in my salad and as a burger could use a little seasoning-it's a little dry and bland to taste. Would prefer a few more addition to the breakfast menu. However, it's still a great place to go. My favorite brunch place for big groups. Keep it up!
The Oxford Exchange is one of the busiest places to eat on a Sunday- for good reason!! The food is delicious, the service is very good , and THE TEA!! The tea choices are incredible, and I am more of a coffee drinker. Here, though, it is tea all the way! This is a place we like for an indulgent Sunday brunch, with wonderful waffles, pancakes, and lovely sauces. Lunch is great, too, as the salads are fantastic. I recommend you bring your patience, as the restaurant is so very busy.
Our reservation was for 10:30 and we were ready to pay by 11:00. The service is so fast and the food is amazing. We went for brunch and there are options for everyone. If you are planing to go there I recommend wearing something nice and cute because trust me you will want to take pictures while you're there.
Really nice breakfast, but be advised that if you order french press coffee, it will take 10-15 minutes. ??? We have no idea why, but we were half way through our meal and had to remind our waitress (for the 3rd time) that we still had not gotten our coffee - no apology, she just kept saying that it takes a while for french press.
One of my fave Tampa restaurants to take friends and family to. We were celebrating a milestone bday for my sister. She had never been before and she has heard us endlessly bragging about it. Outstanding experience from the start. Seated right away. We were greeted by the most attentive and friendly server named Gretel (spelling?). She knew the menu and
gave us her honest opinions about our choices. We ordered cocktails (peach bellinis) and it was
yummy, but small. I absolutely loved the fried avocado slices, so we ordered 3 for our table of 7. I remembered them being fairly small portions (5 small slices), so I recommended 3 orders. Kinda overpriced at $12 per app. For our entrees, we all ordered different items. Throughout this process, Gretel checked in on us and refilled our water glasses. I found the prices for the entrees were decent. Portions for entrees were larger. I ordered the chicken burger with sweet potato fries....WHAT?!? So delicious with avocado slices and to die for aioli. I asked for mayo for my fries (very European), but Gretel suggested paprika aioli. OMG! Then one of my sisters ordered a side of sweet potato fries and the paprika aioli, as she tasted mine and died and went to heaven. Overall, a lovely experience. We will definitely be back and will ask for Gretel.
I made a reservation and didn't realize I had to notate that I wanted to sit outside. I found out when I got there but felt like I was being a bother when I asked.
It was my first time there and was chosen for a special occasion. The food was great the service was average. The ambiance was amazing- I've never been anywhere like it
