Love this place. Food and service are excellent. Ambiance is great! The only issue that I’ve encountered a few times is that even with a reservation, it’s tough to get seated on time.

The general manager was very rude and I’ll be leaving bad reviews on better business bureau and google and Facebook. Cassandra our waitress was amazing!
The general manager at the hostess booth will make it so that i never come back. Brought my family here today because i WAS a big fan of this place.

The afternoon tea experience is pretty lovely. We were put in the atrium room which was beautiful. I would only critique two aspects. The first is the noise level; the second is that the traditional tea’s savory bites almost all have meat in them (which is not indicated anywhere).

These are all ultimately small parts of our overall experience. We really did enjoy the tea experience and found the atrium to be really beautiful.

I’m from Orlando and come every time I go to Tampa! Food and service was amazing as always a bit more noisy than usual but that’s normal it was pretty busy! However my husband forgot his card and we came to get it and it was away on the safe.. it took the manager 30 min to get our card and restaurant wasn’t really that busy that morning seemed like the hostess on the shift weren’t properly trained to coordinate the parties that were coming and needed to be accommodated multiple times 2 host and the manager were just standing at the host stand and they kept asking about my husband name to get the card at least 5 times even tho we gave them his license.. there wasn’t guests waiting at the time so that was very disappointing

we loved the atmosphere. however, we asked how much a side of bacon would be with our meal. we were told $4. they gave us three small pieces of bacon. the price in comparison to the side of bacon didn’t seem worth it. we were disappointed.

Food was not good at all. Ground chicken burger was awful; bad smell. Chicken paillard heavily overdressed with truffle oil salad dressing.

I’ve never been overly impressed with the service. This waitress was the best we’ve had. She just didn’t check on us after drinks were brought and then again took a while after food was brought. We needed items that we eventually gave up on.

Enjoyed the Oxford Exchange for the first time. Food was delicious. Service was pretty good, although getting my credit card back after getting our check took a little longer than expected.
It was a bit loud for me. We sat near where the food was being given to servers, so not the greatest table in the venue. There was atrium seating which would probably be nice in cooler months, but not so much on a hot, humid Saturday in May.
Will recommend and will most likely return. I will be better prepared for the noise level.

Very good food - kind of expensive but the ambiance adds to the value. So pretty inside but very loud, had to yell across the table. Love the tea bar, so many options. Would for sure come back.

Have been here several times- although food was excellent- our server never came back after our food was served to refill coffee or drinks. We had another table of family with a different server and they had similar issues. Need to pay attention to guests- we had to flag another server. Food excellent!

This is a pleasant, airy space with a lot of delicious breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea options. I particularly liked the curry chicken salad on sourdough. The golden raisins had been plumped which was a nice touch. The room was extremely noisy and conversation was difficult at 1:00-1:30 but by 2 fewer tables were occupied and it was easier to hear. I think that afternoon tea would be a good choice because by that time there might be better parking options. The books and gifts make for interesting after meal shopping.

Oxford Exchange is our location of preference for business breakfasts and lunches. Never disappointed. Plus my wife thinks it's the finest breakfast location in Florida, and she enjoys the shopping as much as the dining experience.

The food is decent. But absolutely not worth the price paid for it. It seems they don't have to try very hard, though, as people are willing to pay a high price for the ambience. I likely won't be back anytime soon.

I have been trying to get to this restaurant for a couple of years and it was so worth the wait! We had reservations and while it was busy, we were seated immediately which was nice. The decor and ambience were great and the food exceptional. The OE is quite expansive with a seperate bar and coffee bar as well as ample seating for those you just want to come and relax. There was a book fair happening upstairs and we got to use vintage typewriters which was super cool. I even bought a book from their bookstore. Overall a wonderful not-to-be-missed experience.

Service was horrible
Server forgot some of our food
Server brought glass of old wine
Server forgot to bring beverages with meal and then at end made them to go
Felt rushed to leave so someone else could take table -
You really need to look at the total guest experience as it was not there with management
Or friendly nor accommodating -

Our girls were in town and why not go to our favorite place. They could not fit us in the auditorium or the sunroom but they got us as closest possible being a big party. The food is so fresh and so exceptionally good. Then you top it with the best service I’ve ever seen. We all bragged about it still after being there previously so many times. We still feel nothing is changed if anything it gets better even how busy it stays. Breakfast, lunch, teatime and brunch is amazing there. I think if they did dinner they would have crowds because the food I cannot explain how fresh and gourmet amazing it is. A must try. We love the whole set up. One of the girls photo
