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.

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.

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!!

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

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.

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!

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!

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.
