About the restaurant
Zagat rated "The Oxford" as one of the 11 Hottest Restaurants and Bars in the South Bay in July 2016. Also, Modern Luxury Silicon Valley has listed Oxford in "The 10 Most Exciting New Restaurants" in Silicon Valley.

The Oxford is inspired by the eclectic, energetic verve of the streets of London. Picture a lively marketplace in London with the enticing flavors and aromas of the Middle East, Southeast Asia, India and the United Kingdom. The Oxford serves up all of that – and more – in one fun, relaxed gastropub.

Kick back with our original cocktails, which change seasonally. Or a classic libation. Or a range of wines and beers, including half a dozen on tap.

We sat at the outdoor patio under the sun, it was great to be out, we had a quick lunch as we needed to pick up our kid from his soccer practice so we picked sandwiches salads and avacodo toasts, our waiter was fast so we had time to spare and enjoy every bite and a superb Italian coffee - love this place ❤️
