Visited recently with my wife and Son for a Birthday dinner. It was faultless.The restaurant isn't the cheapest but you do get value for money with excellent food, great friendly service and the whole place has a lovely atmosphere. It also has a great bar to have a pre meal drink of to sit in and wait for friends. Oxford... More

Dined here with work colleagues mid week and opted for the set menu. Our food was great, very enjoyable. However, they messed up other orders on our table but they couldn't do enough to put it right, really great service. Will return.

Lovely helpful staff, great food BUT do not order the house salad @ £3.50, this salad consists of a handful of mixed salad leaves and nothing else not even a dressing. Shame as it really let the meal down and we left feeling we had been well and truly ripped off.

We went here last night for my sisters 22nd birthday. We had an absolutely amazing night, great drinks, great music. The manager Phil is brilliant, really looks after his customers. He remembered our drink order every time we went to the bar and always came over to check we were ok. Great atmosphere and great music also.

Dinner for two on a Saturday night. Crammed into a small space between other tables. The noise was so bad we gave up on conversation. I can't stress enough how loud the place was. Menu uninspiring, expensive and certainly not suitable for hungry diners but OK if you've eaten beforehand. Price of wine by the glass made me think I... More

Went for a meal here. Nice decor and atmosphere. Prompt and polite service. Would certainly recommend their mushroom risotto- the best I've tasted.

Our second time at Simon's Oxfords Bar and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Both times we have enjoyed live music and danced the night away after a scrumptious meal. The bar has a good selection of cocktails and the ambience is perfect for a night out with friends. To top it all the service was excellent.

The occasions I've visited Simons have been nice, and the menu is always fully comprehensive, although I was recently disappointed that the main half-chicken dish was quite pinky on one side. The chicken was in the grill range of meats, but was rather moist and running with butter or garlic. The soufflé starter was excellent as was the dessert, a... More
