Very good as usual. Only let down was that the parking lot is now gone. Very hard to find parking and didn’t want to pay $10 to park across the street.

Overall unfortunately underwhelmed. Very cool place to hangout with a hip foodhall / marketplace vibe. Heard so many great things and I could understand the appeal. However the food was very disappointing. Flatbread was hard and stale like cardboard. Salad tasted like it was premade and sitting in dressing in the fridge then plated, rather than tossed fresh to order. Kind of blah. Sweet potato fries were cold. The food definitely looks better in instagram photos than it actually tastes. I’d go back to walk around and grab a coffee or tea, or buy hipster specs at Warby Parker, but will not return to dine.

We had the best possible experience at the Oxford exchange on Saturday. Despite our mistake on the reservation time involvong a large party, the manager Steven and all of his staff quietly and completely accommodated our potential crisis and told us to enjoy ourselves and everything would be taken care of; and it was! Our special occasion went off without a hitch, and we were treated with the utmost of respect. The staff at the Oxford exchange exhibited the highest level of decorum, grace and customer service that amounted to fabulous customer service. Thank you so much, Oxford exchange!

Visiting Tampa and really liked this place. As its name suggests (exchange), it’s a little marketplace with great food, coffee, books, and other trinkets. Great decor/atmosphere and our lunch didn’t disappoint. Menu puts a sophisticated spin on most (all?) sandwiches, etc... so perhaps not the best for kids... but otherwise, a great place to have a meal and poke around. Definitely recommend!

Great restaurant with wonderful food and charming servers. The only downside is the noise level when the restaurant is busy; it is wicked loud. If anyone wears a hearing aid; don’t even try! The crowd is definitely younger though.

One of our absolute favorites. The menu is amazing; haven't had anything we didn't love. The Observatory space is a unique room with great ambiance. Love the various textures and design throughout the restaurant/bar/space. Always have had top-notch service. All of the above make the overall experience worth the drive and money....and one of the locations we are looking at for our wedding.

We went for brunch on a Saturday and were seating promptly at our reservation time. The booth seats have become quite worn from the time we visited, which was soon after the restaurant first opened, and it wasn't very comfortable seating. The noise level was very loud and conversation was a little hard.

Brunch has an eclectic menu. My Brunch Flatbread was interesting, but I would not order it again. The Earl Grey Creme iced was delicious.

Interesting location, ambiance, and menu. Wait staff quick but didn’t feel as if they were interested in anything other than rapid turn over if tables. It was hard to finish a sentence. They would ask what you want and then disappear before everyone at table acknowledged.
Great place but didn’t feel welcome for the above reason

I met up with a friend from college at OE in a Friday afternoon. The building was bustling with activity (wedding deliveries, people shopping, dining and enjoy some coffee drinks at the coffee bar). I was able to park in the lot across the street for free since I had arrived after 3pm! Our reservation was at 4 (for light fare) and everything was fantastic. We ordered the flatbread, club sandwich, avocado wedges, and sweet potato fries. My friend had a margarita and I chose the French 75. Everything was fantastic! The next time I am in Tampa—I hope to be back!

This is my second visit to OE. My first time there was amazing. The lobster sliders and Mahi tacos were superb. My second visit was Easter Sunday. The menu was different - disappointment #1. Pescatarian options were limited. I ordered the only two options available and the food was not what I expected. The grouper bites were not great amd the crab meat avocado toast was blah. My mother had the steak and eggs and her steak was very over done. I will be back because the lobster sliders are that great but my experience Sunday was definitely a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10.

Our first visit to Oxford Exchange, but definitely not our last!
Everything was exceptional: ambiance, service, menu, drinks, entrees. We had fried avocado wedge as a starter, poppy seed pancakes, omelet (pancetta, mushrooms, spring peas, fontina cheese); all of it was scrumptious!
The only down side is the lack of parking which can be a challenge.

I always come here every chance I get. Love everything about Oxford. My only suggestion would be for them to figure out the seating. I always want to sit outside and therefore request it on my reservation, but sometimes like this day, I had to wait some extra time to be seated outside. They need to figure that out.
