Oxford Exchange Ratings and Reviews
The food was delicious; the ambiance was outstanding; the company was delightful; the only drawback was the quality of the service. Here are a few tips to all who serve: treat the patrons nicely (smile and make eye contact), engage in small talk, and show them you appreciate that they are there.
The service was average and the food took a long time to receive. I ordered an Arnold Palmer and didn't receive it until the very end. Also, the mocha latte's picture that is drawn on the specialty drink was all messed up and with a place like that, you would expect the small things to be delivered on time and properly for the price. I go there frequently and this was the only time that I have been disappointed.
Opened promptly at 9am, we were sat within a minute despite the ~20 people going in. Sat in the atrium by the fountain which was really nice for ambiance. Food was delicious, although fingerling potatoes were more like crunchy chips, wish they were less cooked. That was pretty much the only rough part of breakfast. Will visit again.
Seated close to time of seating - so not
much of a wait. And server was very nice and good although she was very busy. Room accoustics made it very hard to hear and we weren't in the atrium - imagine might have been more so there. The menu wasn't a "special" Mother's Day brunch/lunch menu. But nice touch with a small gift bottle of hand cream which came from the store outside restaurant - given at end. Over all it was good Mother's Day but not sure we'd go back next year due to noise, busy-ness, and menu not made for a special occasion.
Took my mom for mothers day. We got right in with our reservation, even though we were ten minutes late! There was a special menu for mothers day and I ordered the flatbread, which was amazing! My husband had a burger, that I had to taste and it was delish! It was my moms first time at Oxford Exchange and she enjoyed everything! Our sever went above and beyond for us, due to my mothers dietary restrictions and was just a super pleasant person overall :)
Great ambiance, food came out a little undercooked, but probably because of Mother's Day rush. Service was great and apologetic. A beautiful place with great atmosphere, food and decor. A little ritzy, and definitely expensive but great for book lovers, girl's night or brunch.
Went for Mother's Day brunch and had a fantastic meal. The service from Allie was perfect. She couldn't have been more attentive. I docked a star for seating us directly next to the wait station even though we had reservations. Great for any occasion. Very eclectic.
This place was fantastic. My mom and I went for afternoon tea to celebrate Mothers Day :) I made reservations on round table and I added a note to request tea for two and if we could sit in the atrium of possible. We did celebrate Saturday instead of Sunday hoping it wouldn't be so busy, but I was still nervous that because it was a holiday weekend we would end up stuck inside in a corner somewhere. It was perfect! We got there right at our reservation time and they were friendly and courteous and had everything ready for us. They even had us set up in a beautiful spot in the atrium. Food was delicious and inventive sometimes tea can get boring same kind of tea sandwiches and scones but everything was creative and fresh and pretty to look at as well :) The server was very helpful and kind as well. I would also like to note we never felt rushed....unfortunately it's difficult nowadays to find a place to relax and not feel so rushed to cram everything down abandoned leave. We didn't stay for like hours or anything (I was a server I use to hate "campers"who would bring like a laptop work all day like open to close and then leave a dollar tip) but it was refreshing to not be so rushed. I can't wait to go back for Brunch :)
Short and sweet. The manager is horrible. They put someone in the table My husband and I requested specifically and had a reservation for. I even offered to wait for the table I wanted.. the manager (old guy with a bow tie) said after the people that were seated there, the table was going to be for parties of 3 or more... we got a crappy seat - and half way through eating see a new SET OF TWO people sitting at the table we wanted. I will never ever go back and just felt so unappreciated and not welcomed. I drove 3 hours to come here specifically, and completely wasted my time. Food: the Benedict with the smoked salmon for $17 had no flavor and the potato chips it comes with were way too hard and crispy, almost burnt. The caramel latte was fantastic - nice people working behind the coffee bar, at least. Don't get the chai tea - yuck... and I am a fan of chai.
Looking on-line at the menu, it appeared that the prices were a bit high but after eating at the Oxford Exchange, we now feel the price fits the quality and quantity of the order. Very attractive facility but has one fault, noise level. We sat out in the atrium area which was a bit quieter but would still have preferred it to be even less noisy. We could at least hear each other talk across the table. The waiter Nate was very attentive but not bothersome. Food came out and was served at the right temperature. Loved the slaw I got on the side and the sweet potato fries were the best I have tried.
Oxford Exchange has been our go-to for a while now, but our last visit had us quite disappointed. We had made our reservation a week before my fiancé's birthday which happens to fall on the busy Mother's Day weekend. We had celebrated her birthday brunch last year on the same Saturday on the busy weekend, but it was so much better. This time, however, made me extremely upset. I had a special request to be seated outside near the fountain as my fiancé loves that. I had mentioned that it was her birthday as well. When we reached the host, he had simply mentioned that we don't have anything available outside and it will be at least 1 hour before something could be made available. ONE HOUR?! Even when you have a reservation? 15-20 minutes, I'd get that; but an hour was completely unacceptable. We promptly declined as we were starving and were brought to our table. It was directly next to the servers computers & the hideaway bar/kitchen. This could possibly be the worst seat in the house with the waiters/waitresses bustling in drinks, printing checks and so on. Note that there were empty seats in the middle of the restaurant which would seat 2 people and more empty seats that would seat 4. Another thing to mention was that there was absolutely no mention of a Happy Birthday or anything. Anyways, we did not want to spoil our birthday brunch celebration with an unpleasant experience and the positivity of my fiancé helped me stay calm for the remainder duration there.
We ordered our drinks, a Bellini & a French 65. I have been craving a French 65 since the last time I had it in New Orleans and it was great to finally find it here. We then ordered a Flatbread & a Smoked Salmon Benedict. They were both great & delicious. Now, if only the service from the host was a little bit better ...
The food was great! Went there for Saturday brunch. I love eggs Benedict and this place had one of the best Bennies I've had so far. The omelettes were perfect and the cheese burger done exactly right!
The service topped everything! Very attentive, efficient and alert staff. The waiter stopped by the table often refilling water without being asked, picking up empty plates and cups, and asking to refill our drinks as soon as they were finished - and yet he did in a way that the interruption wasn't annoying! The food arrived all at once and the right item landed in front of the right person - no errors! That's art!
