Diner Reviews
  • "Amazing views, service and food. Celebrated my parents 60th birthday and had an amazing time, the service was outstanding and we had the best views/table in the house after requesting a window table."
    dined on 30/08/2014
  • "Spectacular location, open kitchen, a menu with a difference, all added up to making this an excellent dining experience"
    dined on 30/08/2014
  • "Excellent experience , the staff could not have been more welcoming especially with the children , and the food choice was particularly good for vegetarians . So overall quality first class , together with the amazing view , we even had a personal tour as we were leaving from one of the owners which was the 'icing on the cake' for our trip I would definitely recommend to others"

  • "Had previously been here and the experience had been great. On this occasion however, service was really bad. It was hard to gain the attention of waiters. We waited forever for our order to be taken, and then we waited forever for our bill to come. The food came quickly, and was delicious though. Overall it would have been a good night, but then on the way out a waiter scolded us because I had a small camera with me. At no point was there any information (when we booked) or signage (outside the building, or anywhere in the building) to indicate cameras were not allowed. I don't mind a no camera rule, but the way which she shouted at us was extremely unpleasant and condescending."

  • "Booked the Duck &Waffle as my daughters preference to celebrate her 18th birthday. The whole experience from start to finish was amazing. Quite a small resturant on the 40th floor which arriving via a glass elevator made it even more exciting. Reception & staff were faultless & so friendly. We were given a booth table which was very comfortable & attended to straight away. Staff explained the menu which is slightly different & geared up for sharing which we really welcomed. I really dislike huge & intimating portions but here is very different. Great & intimate atmosphere with an open kitchen on view. I have to say I've yet to eat anywhere else to match the flavours & freshness of the food served. My daughter will always remember her 18th."

  • "Great food, unbelievable views, a fair price considering the location and views, will be back!"
    dined on 26/08/2014
  • "Breathtaking view, great quality food (especially foie gras creme brulee & potato & leek tartin); cannot be considered value for money though as it's too expensive for what it's offering. Definitely worth visiting though at least once either with group of friends or your spouse. Positive surprise are the desserts; exceptional (especially the baked alaska)"

  • " My girlfriend and I had a brilliant time at the Duck & Waffle, stunning views of London - we could see all the popular landmarks of London. The food and drinks were served quick, with a smile and tasted excellent. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Definitely have an espresso, as it is by far the best coffee I have tasted!"

  • "Had Saturday brunch at Duck & Waffle. The views from the restaurant are amazing and luckily we were seated next to the window looking towards Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf. We both ordered the Full English which was very good and plenty of it. Would love to visit again in the evening as the views with the sun setting will be stunning. Highly recommend."
    dined on 23/08/2014
  • "It was an interesting experience with breath taking views and unusual but tasty food It was a brilliant atmosphere and we weren't hurried out Great service and recommendations The views naturally make the restaurant unique but the food was just as impressive Overall we were very happy with the experience"
    dined on 22/08/2014
  • "Well worth a visit! Many other restaurants with these views would charge triple the price. A relaxed place to dine where the food is delicious and very reasonable. The views are truly spectacular and if there's more of you a private room would definitely be worth it! Can't recommend enough!"
    dined on 22/08/2014
  • "Nicely welcomed, outstanding view and good food. A bit pricy so will go for a Percival occasion again"
    dined on 20/08/2014
  • "I have dined at Duck & Waffle many times. I'd thought the service was deteriorating but we dined here most recently on 20 August and the service was back to the high standards that I'd experienced in the past. The staff were helpful and friendly and I was pleased that they were able to accommodate an extra diner at our table at short notice. They also prepared a lovely little birthday dessert for my mother-in-law, who was delighted. We were especially lucky to have a table looking west as the sun was setting (I had not requested this). The food was excellent as usual. I would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or to impress friends and relatives visiting from out of London."

  • "Superb setting, food was superb. Service was outstanding as all members of staff who spoked to us was very friendly and approachable. Good communication skills, keep up the good work."
    dined on 19/08/2014
  • "we booked this for a special treat and it must be said that the location was great, the view spectacular and service excellent. it was a shame then that the "full English breakfast" was not up to the same standard - it was greasy and overpriced at £15, I have had much better in a "greasy spoon café" for a fiver."
    dined on 19/08/2014
  • "My boyfriend is allergic to wine and the manager personalized the menu by highlighting dishes that he can still order with a change of sauce and crossed out those he can't eat at all. Very thoughtful and considerate!"
    dined on 17/08/2014
  • "Great food, great service and great view!! Can't ask for much more!!"
    dined on 17/08/2014
  • "We had an amazing view as we were lucky enough to get a window seat, the food was tasty but the oxtail wasn't to my taste. It was busy and so the staff were a little stressed but were very attentive all the same."
    dined on 17/08/2014
  • "Torrejas - maple caramel apples, cinnamon ice cream is must to try!!!!! delicious!!!!!!!!"
    dined on 17/08/2014
  • "WOW - what a great place! Set on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower the views over all 4 corners of London are spectacular! The food was brilliant and well presented, my wife had the Scrtambled eggs with avo and smoked salmon, and i had the Duck and Waflle - was epic! We really recommend this spot..."
    dined on 17/08/2014
  • "I love it here. I love bringing people here. Great wine list. Great drinks list. Fab menu - I adore the namesake Duck & Waffle dish. Never been disappointed (apart from when trying to get a table at short notice!). Great for a treat."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "Booked the experience for my husbands birthday and we weren't left disappointed. The food was great, the views fantastic and staff very attentive."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "An interesting menu with stunning views of the city but........... Service was patchy - it was hard to order tea of all things. The classic "full english" was ok but unexceptional - Weatherspoons breakfast is just as good for one third the price. Will probably go back just to see if I was unlucky............."
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "Duck and Waffle was a really pleasant experience from start to finish. Excellent service, amazing views and great food. Great for a romantic dinner."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "Took my cousin and aunt (from Australia) and mum to dinner on Thursday. Got a great table view was brilliant and food even better. 3 duck and waffles and the ox cheek doughnut was spectacular and smoked mozzarella salad good too. Duck and waffle never fails to show off good cooking and great views."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "Food was great but service was a little haphazard- had to ask 3or 4 times for wine glasses to be refilled. May have been due to a shift change of staff. Great atmosphere though, and fantastic views."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "Great views, excellent food. Will definitely be returning!"
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "Great dining experience. Interesting range of cocktails available. Food was excellent. Very attentive service which was not suffocating. And incredible views of course."
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "On my first two visits with bigger groups I loved duck & waffle, the food lived up to the location/views. For my most recent visit I booked on a Wednesday lunchtime with my girlfriend. I found it was rushed experience where we couldn't relax. The food was not upto the same standard, the menu felt tired and the days special was really very average."
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "Stunning venue and decor not what I had imagined at Duck and Waffle on top of the Heron Tower. Sharing food is not something I am that comfortable with to be honest. Quality of food was top-notch. Service a little slow to be honest. Would book again."
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "The best things about this place is the view, constantly in awe as the sun went down and was a great talking point. The mozzarella salad, foie gras brulee, pigs ears, and of course the duck and waffle much recommended. Pricy wine list though.."
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "I came here for my birthday and was not disappointed. The food was outstanding from start to finish, and the views are genuinely staggering. The dish that gives the restaurant its name, the duck and waffle, is interesting but probably not something I'd have again. Order if you appreciate the novelty I suppose; the brilliance of the cooking lies in the other dishes. Service was impeccable."
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "No request is too much trouble. Lovely atmostphere and attention to detail. Very special restaurant."
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "The duck and waffle main was amazing, and so was the spanish french toast dessert. Starters were good, but couldn't compare to the main and desserts. Definitely worth a visit"
    dined on 10/08/2014
  • "What an amazing experience. We took friends for dinner that was over from South Africa. We wanted to offer them a unique experience and a dinner that they won't forget. We were all pleasantly surprised. I would definitely take more visitors there as this restaurant would never fail to impress. The Duck & Waffle is definitely a must!!!!"
    dined on 10/08/2014
  • "We absolutely loved the view, the service and all the novelty food available on the menu."
