As always the food was great, unique twists on one's favorites. My husband and I were very excited to get to spend Valentine's Day at the play we were married.

I always enjoy coming to Oxford Exchange. The food is always great and the servers are always attentive. The atrium is wonderful, even if it can get a little loud.

This place is too cute. Absolutely love going on dates here. The outside area is beautiful to eat in. The breakfast is phenomenal and I love the bookstore inside. Found a signed copy of my favorite author's new book there.

We love Oxford Exchange because of the atmosphere and the garden seating. Fun to be able to shop for a variety of things and just a cool place to hang out and have a cup of coffee. Great place for a tenn b'day party. Their Sangria is amazing!

The food is always great. The service is usually not. Very cold, inattentive server this time. Never checked back on us. Never smiled. The new parking situation is not good. If we didn’t like the food so much, we would not bother.

Great food and great service as always. Be sure to make a reservation as the walk in wait is always over 90 minutes. Go early or plan to stay after lunch in order to spend some time in the book store and gift shop. This place has a wonderful vibe and the food is fresh and delicious.
Ask to be in the solarium great setting feels a bit as if you were in Paris.

The food was good and the service is usually great. This time it was pretty subpar. It took forever to find our waiter and get his attention for things. He was short with us while ordering. I wasn't impressed. I usually have great service here. I'll be back though! Maybe he was having an off day.

Great spot! We were seated right away and the host had done a great job fitting us in the garden area which was BEAUTIFUL! Ordered the Fish Tacos and Benedict, both which were great. Finished up with tea (Moroccan Mint and a London Fog). Overall great place. Will definitely recommend to anyone in the Tampa area.

We went in for brunch on a busy Saturday but because we had our reservation we were seated immediately! Our food came out fast, hot and really delicious. The portions are quite big and the price is actually right for the amount given in my opinion. The outside seating area can get loud so if you’re looking for a place to talk I recommend getting a table inside. Our service was a bit slow but I can understand due to the amount of people there. Overall I’d go back again.

Friend and I went here because it is listed as one of the top brunch places in the city. It is slightly confusing finding out exactly -where- you need to go to get a table, but once we found the host stand it was just a few minute wait until someone came up and asked us if we had been helped. We were seated and the server was brisk with water and a drink order.

I ordered a magnolia and my friend ordered a Bellini. Both drinks were great but nothing special for what we ordered. Their specialty drinks may be a different story, but we didn’t try them. For food, I ordered the egg sandwich and my friend ordered the omelet.

The food took no time at all. The potatoes were great, the food was great, but you didn’t get too much on my side of the table other than excessive amounts of arugula. I gave this place a four star instead of five because of that value. Food was overpriced for what you got, the ambiance was a little pretentious (good hipster vibe), but otherwise we had a fantastic meal. Definitely would recommend trying it at least once, and I’d give it another go if I had the occasion, but I wouldn’t make this a regular stop.

I have driven by here frequently, but had never been. It was fabulous. We went for Brunch and it was packed. I had a reservation which I would recommend and people were coming and going like crazy.
The service was great and the food was fresh and very tasty. I don't think there was a bad thing on the menu. This is a wonderful spot to eat and talk.

First time dining at the Oxford Exchange for Sunday brunch and we had a very pleasant experience. Reserving online was extremely easy. We ordered the French Toast and they were delicious! Coffee wasn't too sweet which can be a good or bad thing depending on preference, but it did not taste heavily of syrup either (ordered the vanilla iced coffee). All in all, it is a wonderful dining experience and a great atmosphere to be in. Will definitely come back!
