Was in town visiting my daughter who’s a student at a local university. She insisted on bringing me to Oxford Exchange and I’m glad she did. For me it was a little loud, but that’s because EVERYONE was engaged in some sort of conversation... not because of a band, sports, or bar. That’s what made it OK. I look forward to having another great meal next time in Tampa!

Oxford exchange is always so good! The last two times I have gotten the brunch flat bread and it is seriously amazing! My husband got the chocolate chip pancakes and he was sad at first because they got rid of monkey bread French toast off the menu but the chocolate chip pancakes were really good too! My mom got the Cuban which she said was great and my dad got the fish tacos which was also really good. We also got a variety of tea and coffee. My personal favorite is the nitro cold brew from Buddy brew coffee. So delicious and smooth! I love the Oxford exchange has warby Parker to browse and lots of fun books to look at. Perfect afternoon brunch on a Sunday.

We thoroughly enjoyed. Food was excellent for Sunday brunch. Wine list is amazing. Server was fantastic and patient. My only complaint was that it is a very loud atmosphere - wish it were a bit quieter.

Server took 15 minutes to acknowledge and greet our table. Took 30 minutes after being seated to bring my drink after being reminded twice. Didn’t check on us after getting food. Had to wave him down several times. He didn’t introduce himself so I don’t know his name.

First issue is the parking, there is none unless you pay $10 to the church across the street. Second we went there for brunch, 10:30 reservation, we were seated immediately which was good. But, that is where it ended. Coffee tasted bitter and old & burnt. We ordered the oysters sample, 6 oysters for $14.50 was charged $15 and several of them were smaller than the tip of my little finger. Then I was charged $1.50 for cocktail sauce and crackers. When one condiment was to come with it. My husband and me both ordered the Egg Benedict w/chirzo sausage. My english muffin was soaked in grease and sitting in a plate of grease. It was served with homemade potato chips that where limp and tasted cold & old. We would of complained but our waiter was no where to be found. Unless we got up and found him. When we did finally get the bill, and noticed the two errors it took another 10 min to get it back with only one error corrected. Bottom line we paid $65 ( with a small tip) for the meal with no alcohol and $10 to park. Thats $75 for a disappointing brunch! We live out of town but was here a few years back and it was excellent. But, not this time unfortunately! We felt it was a ripoff!

Lovely & impeccable service from everyone at OE. Nice lunch menu with plenty of options, but execution is spotty. Example: delicious curry chicken salad on the toughest, chip a tooth turmeric sourdough toast. Beautiful selection of fresh veggies in the seasonal chopped salad with a nearly tasteless vinaigrette. Easy to overlook when you're seated in a pretty atrium and receive excellent service.
