Oxford Exchange Ratings and Reviews

I always love Oxford Exchange. It has amazing salads and I love the sweet potatoe fries! It is a little bit loud and hard to hear in the atrium, but other than that, it is an wonderful place to dine. I live in Lakeland and try to get there as often as I can. I am gluten-free and there are plenty of options for me. Serving sizes are very generous, too!

It was an enjoyable couple of hours browsing the couple of shops and enjoying brunch. Was especially pleased that via our Open Table request we asked for a quieter table due to my husband's hearing problems and they definitely catered to our need. We had excellent service and was thankful we had a reservation because they were extremely busy!

Oxford Exchange is one of my favorite restaurants in Tampa. I've never been there except mid mornings on Sundays but have eaten both the brunch and lunch menu. Excellent. The service is exceptional and the food tastefully done. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occassion.

Great historic place with great amenities, bookstore, craft coffee and tea, unique gifts. The restaurant runs smooth. Good attention to detail and the food and service are excellent. A bit noisy due to the type of construction, but still a special place that everyone I bring here always enjoys it.

This was a birthday celebration for our seventeen year old daughter. SInce we'd celebrated their sixteenth with you and they requested a repeat performance, you appear to be doing everything right. A most enjoyable late afternoon High Tea. Our server was an especially attentive and accommodating gentleman.

Nice lunch with a friend who was in town for a convention. It was her first time at OE and she really enjoyed it! We both ordered the Seasonal Chopped Salad, substituting Chicken Salad for the chicken. It was delicious...very fresh, nice presentation! (we did ask for the dressing on the side, but it came on the salad. Our server offered to have them remade but we declined) Good service too. We walked across to explore UT and came back to enjoy a cup of coffee. It was a great afternoon dining and catching up with an old friend!

Food was amazing. Service was good. Place is very chaotic. The dining room has a green house feel. Too much sun directly I. My eyes to come back for lunch. Would look at dinner based on the great food. More of a food court in the mall feel since most of the space is shops.

Went on a very busy day, and we were seated promptly and service was good. Food was unique and outstanding. Overall great experience and very creative atmosphere with the coffee bars and bookstore all in one area.

The waitress was in a bad mode and it effected the meal. The drinks were really bad, whisky sours with no sour mix , Bellini had no peach taste and the sangria was horrible. We sent back four different drinks. The food was mediocre and the waitress had no recommendations. The brunch fair was limited and the food was just OK.

The Oxford Exchange's unique location and decor make this a favorite restaurant as both a neighborhood gem for the locals and visitors from out of town looking for a restaurant with both great ambiance and food. Trendy menu, special brewed teas and delightful coffee selection are what keeps us coming back. Even if you don't regularly eat a fried potato, you must try the seasoned sweet potato fries, they go with everything, right? All around great experience.

We love to have breakfast at the Oxford Exchange when possible. My go-to is the super simple sandwich (on an everything bagel). My wife chooses something different each time, and I must say they've all been good choices. We've gone in the afternoon for the tea and snacks (I'm sure there's an official name for it, but it's basically tea and some scones and other appetizers)...it was good. Comes in a tall tree-like platter and you get a generous pot of tea. Honestly, the only drawback to Oxford Exchange is the wait; even with a reservation there's often a reasonable amount of time before you're seated. On the plus side, the lobby has a variety of interesting items to peruse which will help you kill the time.

Oxford is a favorite of mine. This time I brought my kids ages 8 and 12 (they're kind of foodies, would not recommend for picky eaters). They loved everything about it. We sat at the tea bar before lunch and they got a flavored iced tea. My husband and I enjoyed trying new teas as well. I normally get a cappuccino so this was a fun change. Lunch was phenomenal. We all tried each other's entres. The burger was incredible and the BBQ chicken flat bread was everyone's fave. My husband loved his chopped salad. I will say I've had hit or miss service here but our service this time was amazing and the best I've had by far. I'm so glad my kids liked this place as much as I do so we can return for another family lunch .

Great food and experience! We loved it all! Great place! Sat in the atrium for lunch and loved the Buddy Brew coffee! The book area was nice.
The shopping selection was awesome but wayyyyyyy overpriced. The books and a lot of other items were really overpriced.

Food and service was awful. Very bad experience. We had the swordfish sandwich and the fish tasted old. Then we asked to exchange it with a burger and had to wait over 30 min. The waitress confused and brought only 1 burger instead of 2. Then we had to wait another 20 minutes for the 2nd burger. The meat was completely over cooked.
