I love the food, service and experience. I do not love trying to find parking. Had to pay 10$ to valet in order to avoid being over 5 blocks away.

One of the loveliest dining experiences we’ve had!
EVERYTHING was excellent: menu options, food taste and presentation, cocktail innovation and taste, friendly service. Just FYI - food and alcohol offerings are fairly pricey; but worth it for a special brunch.

Love the food at the OE but parking is miserable at present, paying $10 is not fun. I’d booked on Open Table and they could not find the reservation, so go figure. And so noisy.

Food and drinks were good, our server was not very present or observant. This was my first time having bad service here so I was really disappointed. We had empty drinks and weren’t asked if we would like another one, our food came out incorrect as well

We had been so looking forward to this brunch. The venue is awesome and the staff quickly worked with us to fix a seating issue. (Their sofa benches are very soft and if you have back issues not advisable) We had a discussion with our waiter about the spice level of the Bloody Mary's and even got a taste of the already mixed tomato juice. We ordered drinks and learned 10 minutes later that they could not serve alcohol until 11am. It was 9:50am (reservation was for 9am). I would not call it a 'Brunch' if no Mimosas or Bloody Mary's can be served.

We got tea and coffee instead, then ordered food. 2 in our party of 4 got all 4 Small Plates. The Avocado Wedges were good as were the Lobster Sliders. The Fried Brussels Sprouts would have been good if they had been par-boiled prior to frying them as they were rock hard. As for the 4th Small Plate, I would not call a full sized, fully loaded bagel a 'Small Plate'. You should also be aware that their Cuban contains sweet pickles.

Food is the best in town. The only thing I don't like is the coffee it's Buddy Brew and is very bitter.

Have eaten there numerous times but this is my first review. First time I had a table on the patio. Weather it is bright and sunny or rainy it is absolutely beautiful sitting out there. The food is always amazingly good. Our waitress was an absolute delight and presented well. She made an already amazing experience even better. I would recommend oxford exchange for brunch anytime. The eclectic nature of the place is intriguing. I’m not much of a tea drinker but I had the tea and it was quite tasty. The buddy brew coffee is always very good as well. Great place.

It’s unfortunate that they forgot about us after we checked in. There was some kind of miscommunication between the staff and they gave our table away. Even after 30 minuets of waiting they took their sweet time to seat us. We received an insincere “sorry”. So I guess there was no need to make a reservation weeks in advance...45+mins to be seated.

Overall we enjoyed brunch at Oxford Exchange. The food was pretty good, not extremely overpriced, and it has a lovely ambiance. The servings were large enough and everything seemed fresh (though they were out of sourdough bread). My only complaint, and this is a personal issue, is that the booth seats were so cushy I felt like I needed a booster seat, so if you are short you might want to request a table instead of a booth. Also, sinking down in the booth so much made me too warm and just generally uncomfortable. We were close to the solarium so that added to being too warm. Next time I will request a table at the far end of the room away from the solarium. Otherwise it was a nice brunch and I will return next time we visit Tampa. Parking is difficult but they had a free lot with security guard about 3 blocks away.The restaurant is attached to some nice, but pricy, shops which gives you something to do while waiting for your table. Definitely need a reservation for Sunday brunch.

Server was patient and attentive. We had a business lunch and she gave us time to talk business first before ordering food. I was definitely impressed with the ambiance and food quality was good (but still a touch pricey on alcohol side). Parking was bad - would recommend more complimentary valet. Overall would recommend to restaurant. :)
