Had dinner on a Saturday night - booked well ahead, and it was pretty busy - but with a nice, buzzy atmosphere, not overwhelming or too loud. Service was polite and efficient - not highly personal, but that's ok. Food generally very good and quite interesting - octopus terrine, in a light jelly; pork osso bucco, well cooked, moist and...

Buzzy on a Saturday night - but service was good. The first wine was poor, lacking in oomph for a Garnacha and one of the cheapest at @£28. Our starters, an octopus terrine was odd: the terrine just about made it, but some of the accompaniments had not been well chosen. The second wine was a little better, but a... More

We made a reservation for a table a Saturday evening, so of course the staff was very busy. However, we arrived on time, but we had to stand and wait additionally 10 min before we could sit at our table. The food was dear at the price - my risotto was way too salty and my father said that the... More

OxfordGees, Manager at Gee's Restaurant, responded to this review

Dear LisettLien, Thank you for reviewing Gee's. We are one of Oxford's most popular restaurants and are housed in a Grade II listed Victorian greenhouse, so we have to maximise the space we do have, this makes the restaurant feel lively and atmospheric on a busy evening. This does sometimes mean we ask our guests to enjoy a cocktail in... More

Attentive service and restaurant was full on Tuesday night. Menu is not extensive but everything we ate was tasty, well balanced and with good sized portions. Save room for their deserts !

Set in a conservatory this is a lovely looking restaurant and very close to the city centre. However the food although good is over priced for what it is. I ordered the scallop special; I was shocked when it arrived to find that there were only 2 very small scallops in butter, one with its roe and one without, the... More

Dear Heather B, Thank you for taking the time to review Gee's. We are sorry that you were disappointed with your Scallop starter. Our scallops are ethically sourced, hand-dived Orkney scallops and are of the finest quality. We feel that £13.95 is in line with market prices and reflects the quality of our ingredients. If you wish to elaborate upon... More

Visited for a family celebration, and although a fascinating and interesting building the evening, and particularly the meal, did not come up to expectations.. One might expect a 'noise' problem in such a glass building, and for one who suffered from slight deafness it was certainly difficult to carry on a conversation with anyone other than one's immediate neighbour.. Lighting... More

Dear John T, Thank you for taking the time to review us. I am most concerned to read that your supper did not live up to the standards we normally provide. Gee's is a Grade II listed building, so nuances like the acoustics are unfortunately unavoidable when the restaurant is busy, and we feel that this is part of Gees'... More

On a visit down memory lane to Oxford my wife and I remember this restaurant when it was a flower shop, and the decor continues somewhat in this vein today. Lots of greenery.However far more customers flock through the door. The clientele when we were there is an eclectic blend. Young professionals, students and the older generation. The food is...

We had a very bad experience here some time ago but decided it was time to try again. I am pleased to say that customer service is now good. The restaurant is obviously popular with others. We walked in at 5.30 on a Monday and while they could fit us in there were few tables available. By the time we... More

My son took me here for dinner and I could honestly say it's one of the most beautiful restaurants I've been in. I had the crostini and parfait starter which was surprisingly disappointing, the crostini so thinly sliced and over baked it just crumbled as soon as you touched it and the parfait was extremely bland and tasteless. My son's... More

Our 2013 transformation remains loyal to Gee’s traditions of providing quality food & service in the most beautiful restaurant in Oxford. Whether flooded with mid-morning sunlight or under Oxford’s evening sky, Gee’s is the place to enjoy exceptional food in unique surroundings. The tables on the outdoor terrace are surrounded by the dense foliage of topiary & potted plants – & if you like the plants, some are available for sale. The new interior is filled with trees, new furniture, soft colours & lighting.Of course the important aspect of the new Gee’s is the cooking. A brand new kitchen incorporates a wood fired oven & a charcoal grill; food acknowledges the continued interest in the origin of ingredients, seasonality & the variety & abundance of local Oxfordshire produce.Gee’s remains the place in Oxford to enjoy a fabulous meal. There are dishes for sharing & dishes in two sizes to suit different appetites & times of the day. Expect great food to suit every occasion, served by knowledgeable & friendly waiters, in this beautiful, iconic glasshouse in North Oxford.
