Service was very good, think is little bit expensive comparing food quality for that location. Cannot complain pasta was good, but frankly something missing in that taste, it was just good, but nothing special. Maybe chef had bad day, but in total, i can say, its fine, but no need to repeat it. Tomato soup, i had expectations, unfortunately tasted... More

Lovely is the best word. Food, location, staff and service. Welcome from the moment you think of going here and you really feel appreciated when you walk through the door. Lovely food caringly prepared and served by real people with no pretensions. While our son is in uni this will be a regular haunt!

Been here a few times and every time am reminded I should come more- I just LOVE it! The staff are really friendly but still professional. Restaurant is not too big, nice atmosphere and well laid out. Standout here is the food though- the menu always presents a tough choice for me as everything is made to sound so different... More

Wow amazing food, I had the freshly baked Focaccia from the nibbles menu, then the smoked salmon, followed by the ribeye steak which was excellent. For dessert I had the eton mess cone. One of the best restaurants I have been to, highly recommended. The staff were friendly and attentive. Would 100% go back.

Another return visit because the food, service, ambiance and wine list are all excellent. A new manager, Barnaby, has ensured that the very high standards set by the owners is maintained. All that remains is to plan my next visit.

Boyfriend took me here this evening for a lovely birthday meal. We went on Sunday, so the menu was probably slightly different to norm, but they had other dishes other than Sunday roasts. To start I had the goats cheese mousse with beetroot carpaccio, beetroot sponge, candied walnuts and shoots. Oh. Em. Gee. Delicious. As soon as it was put... More

If you love delicious food that is beautifully presented, then this is the place to go. The staff are warm and welcoming and there is a lovely atmosphere. Will definitely go again when we are back in Southampton.

We have not been for a while but were not disappointed with our lunch yesterday. Lovely food and such wonderful service. Only what happened to the great smoked haddock they used to do. Bring it back,please.

We heard good things about the Oxford Brasserie through friends and we were not disappointed at all. The choice of nibbles, starters, mains and desserts was great and I can honestly say the best food I have ever tasted. This place is seriously good, food and service second to none on the south coast. We will be back.

We turned up without booking and were lucky to get the only free table! Staff were pleasant and keen to help. The place had a relaxed yet classy feel. ~£80 for 2 of us with 3 courses and wine, which I think is great value given that it was good food. I was impressed and would recommend to friends.
