The acclaimed wine list and stunning views of St Paul's and the City of London make it the perfect place to celebrate, whatever the occasion. OXO Tower Brasserie: Offers diners the opportunity to eat from midday until late with its no-fuss all-day dining menu featuring seasonal British dishes. Stop by in the afternoon to experience the now infamous 'Not Afternoon Tea', a delicious pairing of cakes and cocktails, or join in the evening to enjoy live jazz music.

“Three "Wow's" - well, almost.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

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”
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”
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

“Consistently good”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Another wonderful family celebration for my husband's 50th birthday. Consistently good ... service, food, wine, views and I asked for a window seat and that was secured for us and I asked for a birthday dessert and they made that happen too. Always happy.
