Afternoon tea - great selection and display but a bit rushed and loud
Had reservations, and requested a table in the conservatory. There was tables available, but they sat us in the dinning room either way. Food was great. Service was slow, and they forgot to bring out a dish. They didn't charge us for it, but just a couple bad things affected the overall experience.
I felt like I was at a Nice Barnes and Noble in which I had the ability to buy a sandwich and drink some tea. Sandwich and fries was mediocre.
Kassandra- server - one of the best! Thanks
Loved the food and ambiance of the Oxford exchange. A little pricier than I expected, particularly the $10 mimosa which was just a normal sized champagne glass.
My favorite restaurant. I would recommend for anyone and everyone. My older relatives do have a little trouble with the noise level, but the food quality is unmatched by any other place in Tampa.
Breakfast meal. All was good except coffee was just average. Lovely ambiance and the staff was very charming an accommodating. Will return again.
The food is absolutely amazing!
We LOVE Oxford Exchange! It never disappoints!
Oxford Exchange is always excellent. Food, service, menu choices and atmosphere make for a consistently high quality experience
I ordered the chicken paillard salad. It was a lot of arugula and one large buried piece of flat tasteless chicken. Would not order it again. Also ordered the salted carmel frappe....which was tea based instead of coffee!!!! That was disappointing. Liked the ambiance and service but the noise level is loud. Will probably come back and order something else. I felt that the menu was very limited.
My daughter and her friend went there for lunch and when they left they forgot their package of unfinished lunch when they returned they had already discarded them. They made two new sandwiches for the girls to replace them. At no cost.
Now that’s customer service!!
Great place for a nice breakfast. Coffee took a while to come out but the food came out very quickly. Our waitress was really nice. Overall it was a very nice experience
Always a great experience.
Always a favorite! First time having lunch and it did not disappoint! The chicken curry salad was marvelous
Great and efficient service with great quality food and menu. Consistently good!
I'm so glad that there's a wonderful place like this in Tampa where you can go and relax with a good book or good company- and that has afternoon tea! I didn't know it existed, but now whenever I come back here, I'll make sure to dine in again. Thanks for great service and a wonderful experience
Very friendly and accommodating staff. They went out of their way to make sure my 5 and 8 year old niece and nephew were able to order what they wanted, etc. Love OE!
Oxford is an amazing end to end experience! The environment is great, the food is phenomenal and the staff is of the highest quality!
Delighful, love the black bean burger, it’s my fave, I always order! I did find this one dry and loaded with twice the usual amount of fried onions, I wish the creativity of food and options for vegetarian/ vegans was better! Service as atmosphere are wonderful! Please work on better desserts! Our chocolate cake drizzled with vanilla good but unsavory and dry! More dark chocolate desserts, please!
Absolutely loved my experience at Oxford Exchange. The staff is so friendly and helpful when choosing what foods to eat. The ambience is to die for and so is their amazing coffee and tea selections. I could spend hours just sitting there taking it all in. I highly recommend OE for the food, the books, and their awesome little trinkets.
The style is so unique and the food was wonderful! Service was top notch. Definitely recommend!
Cannot handle the noise level in here. It's a beautiful place and the food is good but you have to scream to the people at your own table just to have a conversation.
Absolutely loved it. Great food. Super cute place for any occasion. The service was awesome from start to finish. Will definitely be going back in the future.
Went for my best friends birthday, great brunch spot. Loved the decor and service was great.
Great experience, delicious food
Burgers are amazing and we were stuffed. Hard not to eat everything on your plate there. Service team is great. Love it there.
Best Restaurant bar none if your downtown or near the University of Tampa campus!! I’ve “never” had a bad meal here!
Stopped in to kill some time before a meeting. Had a gluten free egg sandwich and it was simple but fantastic. The service was prompt too.
Food is the main draw for me! We arrived at 11 am for our early lunch reservation. Conversation was quiet until 12 noon; the place does get a little noisy! Eclectic menu and thoughtful wine list are a plus here. Our tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich were nothing like our mother used to make! Wine poured from the bottle at the table is a nice touch. We'll be back!
Beautiful place, great service, and delicious food.
Great lunch in fun interesting surroundings. But NOISY and expensive.
I always enjoy the food and time here. Would recommend
Way too noisy. We actually had a table on the edge of the room and I moved over to her side so we could hear one another.
Parking is a big problem.
Our waiter was tremendous!! Very attentive!
Ambience is absolutely beautiful!
I love high tea, and this one was very well done! I bought some of the earl grey lavender to take home!
The food and service was great. Date loved everything about it.
Aside from the noise level, the OE has been our go-to restaurant on the weekends. If you haven't heard of OE, you are missing the best downtown dining experience in Tampa.
