    Their signature menu, Duck&waffle, is very awesome for combining these four things together: Duck, Waffle, Egg, and Maple syrup. It unbelievably goes well together. I really love their perfect crisp duck! <3

    Took ages to even get a cocktail list and the to b served .waitwers look scruffy and where very unperfesional .. Then had to remind waited for our drinks that we orderd due to length we was waiting . Over all staff where not every welcoming ... I've been to the duck and waffle before and haven't had this experience .. And I've reneclty been to shushi shamba down stairs and that experience was wonderful 10/10 ... I was very disappointed as I took my mum for dinner as it was her birthday ... Always the windows where misty and couldn't see nothing out of then

    Dined on 18/11/2014
    This restaurant ought to be ashamed of itself. From start to finish it was nothing but an overpriced, unpleasant mish mash of flavours that not only failed miserably from a culinary point of view but which was served to us by a cast of incompetent clowns. A ghastly mix of tragedy in the food and comedy in the serving staff made for a miserable experience overall. Thank God they have a decent view or this place would surely have been out of business years ago. In 10 years of eating out in London I have never before refused to pay service on a bill and hope never to have to again. Save your money. Do not go. If you want a nice view and excellent food, eat at Oblix or City Social.

    We came as a party of five to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday. The whole experience was fantastic, starting with the ride up to the restaurant in the very fast lift. We then had cocktails in the cocktail bar. Exciting and different cocktails. The serving staff were all really helpful and friendly. I particularly liked the fact that the serving staff were helpful refilling our water glasses. Often it is difficult getting staff in some restaurants to serve you with drinks you are not paying for. We started with the pigs ears (delicious) with one of the speciality breads, then had four starters to share. I particularly remember the roasted lobster creme brulee, which was fantastic. For our main course we shared three duck and waffles and a tartiflette. The d&ws were fantastic. I can see why they are a signature dish. The whole meal was excellent and pretty good value at £320 for three courses, cocktails and wine between five. I will certainly visit again.

    Amazing view, different type of food but just as enjoyable. Loved the idea of lots of courses, extremely full by the end! Only bad comment I can make is we had to wait for our booking for about 10 minutes, but not exactly a problem. Really enjoyable night, would tell others about this place.

    the view is fantastic, the place is but unfortunately the food poor: they try to be trendy, to be sophisticated by inventing some plates, or some tastes, but when will people understand that food is and must remain simple! there's no need to try to be glamorous with inventing chicken at raspberry sauce and a truffle "bed" ! those mixes are non sense!! it's a pity..

    We tried the bbq crispy pigs ears, signature dish duck and waffle, foie gras creme brulee and the bananas brulee belgian waffles. The pigs ears and duck and waflle was tasty. The foie gras creme brulee was ok, didn't have the wow factor which was a shame, would have been nice if the toasted brioche was hot and not cold. All in all, the meal was ok and not amazing, suppose the view over the city of London compensates.

    Great restaurant, views, food and service. Excellent. The service was great, staff who weren't even serving us were brilliant and on hand to help with a smile. The breakfast is amazing. Definitely go for the hot bread, duck and waffle. My boyfriend had a full English breakfast and ate the best sausage known to man. Cannot fault it. We will be back!!

    It is not my first visit at Duck and Waffle, the service is already brilliant but just gets better everytime! The food was delicious, my 3 recommendations is the foie gras creme brûlée and onion jan and Stilton bread for starters and for mains their signature dish the "duck and waffle". The wine list and cocktail list is very good! The views were spectacular as per usual. It was a wonderful evening - and is definitely in my top 3 restuarants in London. Am sure I will be back soon!!

    We really enjoyed the whole evening, in fact I would say that it was the best dinner experience I've had. Got a table right next to the window and the fireworks only added to the view! The food was delicious and surprisingly good value for money as well. I would certainly recommend the duck and waffle dish, the flavours work very well together. The table service was also excellent and it really seemed like that the staff took a liking to our table which was really nice. Needless to say my girlfriend had the best birthday evening.

    Duck&waffle is always great to be there, the food is nice, but over an year the menu did not change , so it was always the same dishes. The service is always better at brunch / Lunch than at night, it seems the employees are slower and are more tired. Over all is a nice place to go, nice view, but over the 6 times I went to D&W every time the service is worse.

    We ve had a very good time at the D&W. Taking off from ground level through the glass elevator to the 40th floor. Nicely welcomed to our round table with an almost 360 view on London and the kitchen. Great food such as the yellow fin tuna or the beef carpacio. Lovely mix of sweet and savoury with the signature dish Duck and Waffle to share or the ox cheek beignet... highly recommended.

    I'd wanted to go to Duck and Waffle for over a year and it definitely didn't disappoint! From the moment you arrive, the staff are very attentive and keen to make your experience as enjoyable as possible and ensure you sample the best options on the menu. To start with we were nervous about what to order but after the waiter talked us through everything and gave his opinion, we were convinced as to what to order. The food was amazing and we loved everything, especially the ox cheek doughnut and of course the duck and waffle. I've never been more sad to finish a meal and can't wait to go back. It made a celebratory night perfect.

    This place is just divine, I cant help but return for more. Took the family here for a get together, and the restaurant as usual did not disappoint. We shunned our favourite dishes and decided to try all the interesting ones YUMMY. The Manager was doing the rounds and was very pleasant indeed. The best was the amazing comp desserts from the head chef. TORREJAS. I cannot recommend these enough. A warm, christmassy tasty pudding to end a winter evening..

    Went for a team breakfast and again it was a good experience. Great service, food was good with a few more interesting options than a standard breakfast menu, coffee was good. Prices have crept up a bit since I was last there for breakfast but just about ok still with perhaps the exception being the tea which at £4.50 is way too punchy. Any further increases I'd probably stop bothering though.
