Despite all the requirements when eating out during Covid times the Oxo Tower Restaurant continues to be exceptional. The welcome starts at the ground floor lift access and continues when entering the restaurant. We were first to arrive for the evening sitting and were welcomed...by every front of house staff member. The view from the restaurant, across the Thames is superb, even in the rain but is matched by the staff and ambience in the restaurant. Food was, once again, top notch, particularly the pork belly starter. With the London Restaurant Festival Deal it proved good value for such a high quality meal. Hope to be back again soon. Well Done Oxo Tower RestuarantMore

We didn't have high expectations for food - just wanted a romantic date night with a good view. However, we were so pleasantly surprised! Ordered the John Dory, the scallop, and burata for the appetizer - all was just excellent. We also had the mocktails...(banana colada and virgin bellini) -- also great! This place definitely exceeded our expectations with regards to food. Service was also good although they could have been friendlier, since everyone wears a mask. But overall impressed with this place and will return! Deserves a Michelin star.More

A great setting overlooking the River Thames following the COVID-19 guidelines and creating a comfortable and nice atmosphere.

Good view. Service good. Didn't save any money with £10 off offer because had to pay £4 for bottled water when offered upon entry and was NOT told it was Not free. Plus they charge 13.5% service charge i.e. 1% more than everyone else.

Good food although not particularly memorable. I did not rate the chateau briande highly. Wines extortionate - starting at £50 too punchy. Wines by the glass at only 125 ml really poor that they don’t offer different sizes. Again, a good way of pushing the...prices. I would not return. Better in the Brasserie.More

We had diner at the Oxo to celebrate a reunion with friends we had not seen for years. We were looking forward to this diner.. The London skylines were great from our table. But unfortunately, the evening was an overall disappointment. The bread rolls we...were served were tasteless and dry. We were given rolls that probably had not been sold the day before !!! Charging £4 for that is a rip off. Not to mention the minuscule portion of butter included. For our main course, we had different meat dishes: I am a big meat eater and I have hardly been so disappointed by such poor quality of meat. We decided to skip desert based on the negative comments we overheard from the table next to us. Oxo is obviously struggling to manage its kitchen and to get good suppliers. We are all 'going out to help out' for an industry which is struggling but please do not make us pay sky-high prices for poor quality ingredients !!!More

I took my partner to Oxo Tower for dinner as part of her birthday celebrations and the restaurant didn’t disappoint. Every course we had was pretty much faultless (special mention for the ox cheek lasagne with goats’ cheese butternut squash which was absolutely incredible) with...an excellent drinks menu. Service was very efficient (if on the slightly serious side) and I appreciated the team giving us a good table and putting together a personalised celebration dessert for my girlfriend as requested before we arrived. It goes without saying that you won’t get a cheap meal here - this is very much a restaurant for special occasions, and for that, you won’t find better.More

Great customer service and gorgeous view!! Their ale beer selection is poor and it's extremely pricey. It's worth going once just for the view.
