SquareMeal Review of OXO Tower Brasserie

"GOOD"

High up on the eighth floor of the Oxo Tower, this fashion-conscious, brasserie-style eyrie offers the same great views as the posh restaurant next door, but prices are a fair bit cheaper and you can rub shoulders with the throngs of beautiful people in more convivial, easy-going surroundings. The vibrant menu ranges far and wide, picking up the likes of soft-shell crab with watermelon salad and black-bean dressing, Korean-style roast duck leg with a spring-onion pancake and kimchi, or grilled baby chicken with soft polenta, balsamic pickled onions and Gorgonzola butter. ‘Faultless service’ and the chance to dip into the neighbouring restaurant’s top-drawer wine list are undeniable plus points, while cool live jazz or mellow piano music adds extra sparkle in the evening – especially if you’re lounging on the terrace overlooking the river.

The food here really is exceptional. Fine dining with a great ambience and attentive waiters and waitresses. The flavour combinations of everything we ordered worked really well and presentation was fablous! Great venue for a special occassion or as a treat to someone who has never been before.

The views are amongst the best in London so the restaurant has an immediate wow factor, but hopefully you're dining with someone who deserves your attention more than the view, so the food better be good, and it is. Sometimes I think the Chef tries a bit too hard to be creative but overall it works; the menu is far more wide ranging and experimental than one would expect in a Brasserie, especially as it shares the space with a fine dining restaurant. The live music is also an added bonus. Front of house seems to often let them down as they seem to overbook regularly. Also I preferred it when the bar was at the back of the building unlike today when it creatyes a cvery busy and often overcrowded entrance to the restaurant.

Had a reservation for 9.30pm for a very special occasion – have waited a long time to go to this restaurant. Waited until 9.45 to enquire after our table – was told it would be imminent. Enquired again at 9.55 – again was told it would only be a minute. By 10.05 – we decided to give up. We had received no apology for the delay – and had not even been offered a drink by way to keep us going while we waited. Goodness knows what time we would have got our meal if we had stayed – and then have been expected to pay a fortune for it which I wouldn't have begrudged if our table had been on time – or any sort of apology made. And then I'm sure we would have been hurried out. Not the kind of special occasion I was expecting. Having been to Barbecoa, Joe Allens, Mandarin Oriental and the Savoy already that weekend – it is clear OXO do not do service. And by the looks of the clientele in the bar area – they are not interested in polite well groomed people… only passing tourist money.
