Great ambiance and decent service. Food is fantastic even if a little over priced. As a non drinker, I probably don’t take advantage of the great selection of wines they have. Still recommend though.

Absolutely amazing food, very attentive (though not intrusive) service and wonderful views across the Thames. Definitely not a cheap meal, but we'll worth it ☺️

Overlooking the Thames in the Oxo tower (where they used to make the stock cubes). No longer one of the high fashion restaurants but who cares! Great food, great view, great dining options. Got to be making a come back sometime soon.

This place is not cheap. The views are incredible and the interior is very sleek. There's a small outside dining patio that I can imagine would be incredible on a nice day. I would choose Duck and Waffle over here, for an expensive meal w/ views, but it is very nice.

Amazing views over the Thames and good food. We went for Sunday brunch and thought the food was tasty but not amazing. But the views were amazing and made it worth the visit.

The Oxox Tower Restaurant, Bar & Brasserie serves up quality food at a reasonable price and has had many reviews reccomending it as a place worth checking out.

For beautiful views of the Thames, the Oxo Tower restaurant not only provides this but also serves wonderful food. It's a little pricey but compared to some of the other restaurants on the Southbank that claim to have river views I'd always go for the Oxo. At night it's even better.

More expensive of the two restaurants. The other is the brasserie. Good but not great new British cuisine. But most people come for the view, which is awesome!

Amazing view of London, with amazing cocktails to boot. Far from the cheapest you'll find in town, but definitely some interesting drinks on their list, which help to make me love this lounge!

I was lucky enough to be treated here for lunch a few months ago. It was the most stunning view of London I've ever seen from any restaurant, overlooking the Thames with St Pauls in the distance. Despite the other mixed reviews, I thought the food was delicious here. I'd recommend that anyone splash out on this place just for the view!

With banging views taking in the Thames, St Paul’s Cathedral and Somerset House, this is definitely the place to enjoy a sun downer. In fact, with jazz pianists and well executed cocktails there’s nothing not to like at the Harvey Nics run OXO Tower Bar. The decor may be a little bit cruise-ship chic, but sometimes it’s what’s on the outside that counts.

GREAT place to take guests for dinner whilst in London. Good food, brilliant atmosphere, watching sunset and reflection of St Paul's Cathedral in windows. Good for large groups.

We came here for the view and enjoyed looking at St. Paul’s and other buildings all lit up at night. The food we had was fairly good for the most part, but definitely not in the same league as the top London restaurants. However, we found the attitude a bit much. The wine list was quite pricey so we selected a bottle on the lower end and the sommelier criticized our choice as too young and the second label of a Bordeaux. He suggested the first label which was twice the price. That does not seem to me to be helpful.

Great place for a view facing the Thames on a warm summer night. The food I thought has been average, but the location makes up for any short comings.

They say it's often hard, verging on impossible to get both wonderful views and excellent food. Oxo Tower has the former, but like Travis says not necessarily the second. Expensive for what you get, too.

Great view. Nice bar. Food is nothing to write home about. Go to the Brasserie instead of the high priced restaurant. If you find yourself on the Southbank it is a good place to park yourself for a glass of champers or lager and enjoy the view.

In the summer have cocktails out on the deck, incredible view of the city. See if the 'shakira shakira' i.e. shoshockra rosata is still on the drink menu
