It was awesome!
The breakfast was not the best and the food was not seasoned at all. The potato were burned and not taste good so defiantly I would not recommend this place for breakfast for anyone.
It is always our first stop when we land in Tampa
Interesting menu. Too noisy but I knew that going in. I will eat there again.
Oxford Exchange is a great restaurant for special occasions, but also great for every day dining. They have delicious teas- hot or cold, coffees, or great cocktails. I love their margarita!!
For lunch, I love their chicken burger- it’s packed with protein & really so delicious!! I pair it with sweet potato fries, but their regular fries & Brussel sprouts are very tasty as well.
This place is perfection. I could not think of one thing to make this place better.
Too expensive for what it actually is. And not a lot of variety.
My sister and I took our mother to Oxford Exchange for her birthday. Mom is a classy lady and we took her to a classy place. It was almost in Tampa city proper, and a little far to go for us. It is also a little pricey for an average day but worth the trip for a special occasion. We enjoyed the book and gift shops. Parking is quite awful. The food was delicious and served in generous portions. Our server was delightful.
Server had to be asked 3 times for creamer. Specified Birthday on my reservation, but not goody was given.
Love this place. Food and service are excellent. Ambiance is great! The only issue that I’ve encountered a few times is that even with a reservation, it’s tough to get seated on time.
The general manager was very rude and I’ll be leaving bad reviews on better business bureau and google and Facebook. Cassandra our waitress was amazing!
The general manager at the hostess booth will make it so that i never come back. Brought my family here today because i WAS a big fan of this place.
Was very delicious!!!
The afternoon tea experience is pretty lovely. We were put in the atrium room which was beautiful. I would only critique two aspects. The first is the noise level; the second is that the traditional tea’s savory bites almost all have meat in them (which is not indicated anywhere).
These are all ultimately small parts of our overall experience. We really did enjoy the tea experience and found the atrium to be really beautiful.
Always a great time when I come to Oxford. Everything from the service to the ambiance and not to mention the food was exceptional.
I’m from Orlando and come every time I go to Tampa! Food and service was amazing as always a bit more noisy than usual but that’s normal it was pretty busy! However my husband forgot his card and we came to get it and it was away on the safe.. it took the manager 30 min to get our card and restaurant wasn’t really that busy that morning seemed like the hostess on the shift weren’t properly trained to coordinate the parties that were coming and needed to be accommodated multiple times 2 host and the manager were just standing at the host stand and they kept asking about my husband name to get the card at least 5 times even tho we gave them his license.. there wasn’t guests waiting at the time so that was very disappointing
Had reservations at 12:30, was not seated until 1:10. I was told multiple times "we're just setting it up, it will only be a couple more minutes." I worked in the service industry for years and if you seat a table 40 minutes later that the table was reserved, I would expect something more than a "thank you for waiting." Food was fantastic! Would not go back because of the experience prior to the meal.
we loved the atmosphere. however, we asked how much a side of bacon would be with our meal. we were told $4. they gave us three small pieces of bacon. the price in comparison to the side of bacon didn’t seem worth it. we were disappointed.
Food was not good at all. Ground chicken burger was awful; bad smell. Chicken paillard heavily overdressed with truffle oil salad dressing.
Terribly noisy and wven tried different table in room
I’ve never been overly impressed with the service. This waitress was the best we’ve had. She just didn’t check on us after drinks were brought and then again took a while after food was brought. We needed items that we eventually gave up on.
Oxford Exchange is always a pleasant experience and has excellent food and service. I appreciated how they accommodated us by giving us a booth for my son who is a toddler. We always enjoy dining there!
A wonderful dining experience in a spectacular setting.
It is a beautiful and unique place to go. I loved it. I can’t wait to go back.
Location/Building exquisite. Historic setting with British appeal. Dining experience was fabulous. Busy place but tolerable. Food quality very good. Storefront prices astronomical but was only there for grub.
Everything was perfect for a celebration. The only part that was just ok was the chocolate, I like mine with more chocolate .
Never disappoints. Must sit in the atrium for the optimal experience. Service is always wonderful!
The food was amazing! The food also came out very quickly. Service was fantastic. Coffee and tea were delicious! Can’t wait to go back!
Favorite place in Tampa for brunch and mimosas, love that you have veggie and vegan options
We had brunch with my mother and daughter and had a wonderful experience. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. The dining room was tidy and super clean. All the associates were kind and had smiles on their faces. Looking forward to going again very soon.
Enjoyed the Oxford Exchange for the first time. Food was delicious. Service was pretty good, although getting my credit card back after getting our check took a little longer than expected.
It was a bit loud for me. We sat near where the food was being given to servers, so not the greatest table in the venue. There was atrium seating which would probably be nice in cooler months, but not so much on a hot, humid Saturday in May.
Will recommend and will most likely return. I will be better prepared for the noise level.
Our server was Alexa. She was great. Just the right amount of attention and also gave us our space. I love the ambience here. The food was creative and excellent!
Oxford Exchange is always a wonderful dining experience, and this time did not disappoint. Everything was exceptional, from the service to the food to the dining experience. I love Oxford Exchange and will continue to come here!
The waiter hovered a bit. We ordered coffee and it took quite a while to come out. Everything else was fine.
Very good food - kind of expensive but the ambiance adds to the value. So pretty inside but very loud, had to yell across the table. Love the tea bar, so many options. Would for sure come back.
Have been here several times- although food was excellent- our server never came back after our food was served to refill coffee or drinks. We had another table of family with a different server and they had similar issues. Need to pay attention to guests- we had to flag another server. Food excellent!
Awesome food, service and location right across the street from the Univ of Tampa. Our go-to place for breakfast, lunch of dinner when we're visiting our daughter at UT!
This is a pleasant, airy space with a lot of delicious breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea options. I particularly liked the curry chicken salad on sourdough. The golden raisins had been plumped which was a nice touch. The room was extremely noisy and conversation was difficult at 1:00-1:30 but by 2 fewer tables were occupied and it was easier to hear. I think that afternoon tea would be a good choice because by that time there might be better parking options. The books and gifts make for interesting after meal shopping.
Always the best guilt free lunch in TPA -
Parking is very diffcult. Restaurant is pretty but loud even in that atrium section. Food and service OK.
