“Fantastic but expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I went there for lunch with friends on a surprisingly sunny day in November. Booking ahead recommended especially on weekends. The view is brilliant. Most of the food was fantastic. The only item not worth it was the side of veggies that they highly recommended, we had the spinach and it lacked any creative element. Other than that, all the food we had was mouth watering, drinks as they should be and lovely atmosphere and service. It is expensive but worth it if you have the money or if it is a special occasion.

“Three "Wow's" - well, almost.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

It's a "Wow sandwich"! The first Wow! is for the views over the Thames towards St Paul's. This is definitely one of the money views in all of London. The second is a soft Wow! for the food. Smoked duck salad starter was exceptional, cod main was slightly bland. Food overall, v good. The third Wow! is for the bill ! (Or perhaps it should be an "EEK!")

“Wil”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I had the most wonderful birthday celebration. I cannot praise the staff highly enough they were amazing. We have eaten at some very selected restaurants and this has got to be top of our list. Although unaware it was my special day they pulled out of the hat a beautiful desert, took a photo and presented it in a card at the end of the evening. This was by far an all round experience. Great cocktails, divine food, atmosphere, incredible service and beautiful presentation.
You must, must go here !!!!

“Good service remembered”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I went to the Oxo Tower on many occasions but drifted to other venues over time. I revisited with friends after some months. I was shocked and flattered to be remembered. But would the food, wine and service live up to my memory and more importantly my guest's expectation? I have to say a resounding yes. Everything was perfect and of course there is a magnificent vista of the north Thames shore and the every beautiful Dome of St Paul's
