Having been before, we thoroughly recommended this to our friends to join us for Sunday lunch. Admittedly we had a latish booking so maybe some staff had already left but the service was slow and courses somewhat disappointing when compared to our previous visits. It has certainly made me think twice about visiting this one or one of the others... More

This was our 3rd trip to the Brasserie Blanc in Oxford and as always I was delighted with the food. I had had a very stressful day and all that kept me going was the thought of the Steak Tatar at Brasserie Blanc. I wasn’t disappointed it was perfect, as was my husbands more traditionally cooked steak. The whole meal... More

Came here for Valentine's day. Trusting the reputation of its namesake. Was completely disappointed by the food. It was quite boring and just not an enjoyable experience at all. Wish we'd gone somewhere else.

We had high hopes of Brasserie Blanc, but somehow, it did not quite make the grade, considering that it is not cheap. The food is average for this type of restaurant, but the wine list is fine, with a large number of wines available by the glass.

The food here is consistently good, sometimes great - though quite expensive unless you stick to the set menu. Service is patchy - we were left waiting in the entrance area for ages, until a passing waitress took pity on us. All the more annoying that, as she showed us to our table, several senior staff (previously invisible) greeted us... More

We used to dine here a lot and returned after some time away. The food is fine and the service is good but it isn't as good as it used to be. A bit of complacency and a lack of care and attention to detail has crept in which wasn't there before (e.g. overcooked meat going out). Overall though, it... More

I have eaten in this restaurant on several occasions and the food is always of good quality and tasty. The fixed price is great value for money and with wine our meal came in at a very good price. If you are looking for a nice restaurant to eat at with friends or in a couple you can't go wrong... More

We went to Brasserie Blanc for our wedding anniversary and we won't go back there again. The food is average and over priced, the inside of the restaurant had flies (both alive and dead) We went to Le Petit Blanc back in the days and were disappointed too but decided to give Raymond Blanc another chance. This was the last.... More

Saturday Night, dined at the Brasserie. First time for us and we would certainly go again, I had the fish, Barbara the chicken and Rachel & James shared a Chateaubriand all of us commented on the fine quality. The puddings were just as good. Good choice of wines as you would expect and service and atmosphere were excellant.
