I rocked up there the other night to dine and there has been a lock out by the building owners , the sign on the door says the restaurant is up for lease . So the business that was pumping last week with tables full of happy diners overspilling onto the street is no longer functioning. WHAT A SAD SHAME... More

We are a young Swedish couple with a big interest for food, we lived in Sydney for 5 months and found lots of fantastic and interesting restaurants - this was definately not one of them! The restaurant has a standard menu with few surprises, the food had no finesse, nothing special about it even though you could tell they do... More

We were recommended to eat here by a close friend and I can only think that we were there on a off night. The service was appalling, off-hand and slow, and the food, when it eventually came, was overcooked and over-salted for our tastes and the wine was inferior to anything ordered elsewhere. I felt that the restaurant had its... More

I discovered Oxford Social in March 2013 when visiting Sydney. I wrote about the restaurant then. Now, one year later, I have been back to Sydney. Of course I was very excited about coming back to Oxford Social. And did they surprise me? Yes, they do keep up the very high standard of the food. Their Danish born chef is... More

Our 1st time to Sydney and I selected this restaurant purely based on tripadvisor opinions (so thank you one and all). We were not dissapointed. Lovely, simple food (our 1st time of eating Barramundi), extremely pleasant and helpful waitress and a reasonable price.

As advised on trip advisor, me and my boyfriend decided to try it out, we were greeted kindly, the place was empty but it was a weekday so no complaints, the food that came out was absolutely amazing and the service was great, waitress constantly changed cutlery for us which was amazing!

Went to Oxford Social for a late dinner on Thursday evening after visiting a theatre nearby having persuaded my two Aussie friends that this place is rated No.1 on Tripadvisor. We had to wait for a few minutes to be greeted by a pleasant blonde server, not by the owner as other reviewers have stated but it was not that... More

We were luckily staying a short walk from Oxford Social. The staff were very friendly and accommodating with us having a 3 year old and a baby. The food was delicious and the current special of $10 cocktails was a bonus. I agree with the other positive reviews- a great find.

Rang on spec to book for the same evening having read other reviews. Luckily got a cancellation and it was well worth it. Had 2 Australian friends with us who didn't know it existed and will definitely be going back, as will we when next here from the UK. Food delicious, beautifully presented, great atmosphere and service. Get a table... More
