Went here for a birthday meal, we both went for the Vegetarian/Vegan menu and both very disappointed in the food.

Sweet potato waffle and Polenta dish for starter, both very salty, greasy with overpowering cheese.

The main no better, Mezze and Ravioli, far too sweet Mezze, very salty pitta, although Ravioli (1 tiny ravioli) was very nice, the accompanying burnt apple, pears and again very salty Artichoke, reminiscent of those in oily jars just made the dish very poor, add that to the price and a pretty poor affair......

The desserts Pineapple tarte Tatin and Apple caramel with profiteroles though were very good, so at least we ended on a high.

The atmosphere was great, the view also but we came for food too, and this, for OXO and its reputation, was pretty dire.

If you cant do vegetarian dishes - DON'T - certainly not recommended on this basis.

Cheese and Biscuits

Cheese and Biscuits - 5/10

Thursday, December 01, 2011 - Nothing was quite right about our meal at the Oxo Tower restaurant. But before you settle down for a long and satisfying dose of schadenfreude, I should also say that nothing was that bad about it either. Everything, from the decor to the service to drinks and (most importantly) the food weaved a fine line between disappointing and just about acceptable, never dropping below the former and rarely rising above the latter, and so I can neither wholeheartedly recommend it or condemn it. It's a frustrating place, wowing you with superficial glamour while never quite satisfying on any other level.
