A word from Rocket Canary Wharf
One of 10 UK restaurants shorlisted for a PAPA Pizza Restaurant of the Year Award in 2010, Rocket in Canary Wharf is our newest adventure so please come down and say hello and let us know what you think. We have a ground floor bar serving fresh cocktails, wine, and Champagne. Upstairs in our restaurant we serve our 13" stone baked pizzas and a great selection of fresh salads and grills. Both our restaurant and bar have outside terraces and are great places to relax with friends or colleagues in the summer. Our Wine List is possibly the best value in the whole of London. We have over 60 well regarded wines to choose from starting at £16.25. All are below £50.00 and many below £25.00. If you are looking for Champagnes we have 14 to choose from ranging from £38.00 for Baron de Marck NV and £41.50 for Mumm Cordon Rouge NV to £135.00 for a bottle of Krug or Taittinger Comtes de Champagne (1999). Wine connoisseur or not, we are sure you will find something that suits your palate and price.

    I'm a regular at Rocket Canary Wharf as it is right next to my office. There are good choices in and around the Wharf, but Rocket is the best place for business lunches. It's not typical of the prententious stuff around the Wharf, the waiters/waitresses are extraordinarily amenable and attentive. You can chat and get on with work talk, or if you fancy a lighter banter all is catered for. The food is superb, though I really must deviate away from the "salads" of beef or fish and chips! Stray into the dessert territory, and you are likely to get the pulse racing, the lime key pie a particular favourite. Well done Rocket!

    fantastic location for dinner after work. downstairs was more lively, whereas upstairs was quieter and more spacious. although there was a private party going on behind our table, the noise was still tolerable. the food was absolutely fantastic, so much variety and interesting combinations. i would highly recommend the pizzas! friendly staff, although the service could have been a little more attentive as we had to wait a few minutes longer than we would have liked to order. however, this was easily overlooked due to the overall excellent experience.

    I went there for lunch with a colleague on a Tuesday. The staff there were rude and I thought the maitre d was not even happy to see me. He showed me to my table after a pause and acted unfriendly. It's a shame as the food was great and the venue is great too.

    We had a very pleasant lunch for 3 to celebrate a retirement. The venue is light and airy and has a buzz to it. I had an excellent hot sea bass with mango salad , my friends had the burger and the beef salad. All the mains were tasty and fresh. The house wine was good value for Canary Wharf, and deserts were scrumptious. A good experience all round. Would have been nice on the terrace but its not very big and the doors were open anyway.

    Went here as it is close to the office and was a good place to catch up with a colleague. Good place to have a conversation, though not that private, luckily it was quiet.Food quality is really good, and serving sizes were more than adequate, (I had a pizza and it was probably just a little too big for lunch). Slightly pricey but it is Canary Wharf. Good for a business lunch but not really family oriented.

    Very nice meal in the centre of canary wharf. Lots of choice on the gluten free menu which is not always the case. The sharing board was lovely and we bothe enjoyed our mains. Only negative was the waitress did not understand when we asked for the gluten free menu. Instead of asking someone else she only pretended to understand and we had to ask another waitress for the gluten free menu.

    Rocket Canary Wharf is perfect for Canary Wharf client lunches. Not only do they do great pizzas, their salads are very filling and delicious - so you don't get food envy when everyone else orders a pizza!

    Good service levels (although bit hard to get the bill) and has a good atmosphere whilst being low enough volume to enable a business conversation. Enjoyed the food too! Not cheap at £50 for 2 mains, 2 soft drinks and 2 coffees.

    My second visit here over the last month. Overall the staff here are friendly and welcoming and the food is delicious. The offer of £10 for steak and chips is very good together with the 2 for 1 cocktails at certain times makes this a good value venue. Although the staff made an error with the bill, this was rectified quickly and pleasantly the following day.

    Went there as a group of four. The service was very good, our two issues were that there was posters inside and outside about 2.4.1 classic cocktails. We asked about this and they said this was finished however you could choose from three cocktails for special offer, well if the offer is finished take down the posters, We as a group have no problem in tipping / service charge but do object to 12,5 % automatically being added to the bill even though it states it's discretionary. Overall the food was good and we enjoyed our evening ,

    The restuarant lacked atmosphere and I think the pictures are misleading as the restuarant was very small and not at all what I expected. A bit overpriced too. Sorry for the negative feedback, I never do but this restuarant did not impress at all. Maybe it was just me.

    I took my boyfriend to Rocket for his birthday meal n I can say that I was disappointed. Even though the value is good the atmosphere was a bit too loud for a nice romantic meal. The food was okay nothing special and the service could have been better. The waitress spent more time showing each other affection than actually serving the food. Overall it was okay I would recomend it for an after work grab or Group dinners.

    It was a Tuesday in January. They weren't exactly rushed off their feet. But the service was pretty good thanks to a ratio of about one staff member to one table when we arrived. Don't let the quietness of a VERY rainy day put you off. I think this place is probably buzzing come summertime. The choices of platters and main courses are great and with a well-stocked bar and pretty good views of the area (do you like skyscrapers?) a great night out in E14.

    The restaurant is good and I have been here before a couple of times. This time the service was pretty shoddy. There was so much rush to order food or move tables etc when the restaurant was almost empty. Constant interruptions during business meal. For example we were 3 on a table for 4 and we were told that we might have to move if a party of 4 appears (when we were the only customers there). They could do we with better servers. Food was quite good though.

    The elements that stood out the most was the lovely venue, great table with a view of the dome and the immaculate service. Our food was well presented and for mid range offerings was more than well prepared and cooked. But the most surprising element was the great value for money. For such a great menu and selection of wines as well as the quality of the food the price was very much appreciated.

    Had a very enjoyable lunch with a couple of colleagues. The menu is varied and always has several things to tempt me. I've rated the food as 3 as one of my dining companions found his food on the bland side, however, mine was fine. The staff are very friendly, it's a pleasant and vibrant atmosphere and a great choice for a nice lunch.

    Had a lovely time at Rocket, loved the decor - modern, yet cosy, and the service was great. The bar was very busy on a Thursday night but the restaurant was pleasant, even with a private function at one end. The food was very good, I recommend the Rare beef and chip salad! Desserts are few and simple choices but the starters and mains on the menu are innovative with plenty of choice. A very tasty bottle of prosecco and two courses later, 40 quid is not a bad price at all! (including service charge). Highly recommend. Canary Wharf has some lovely places to dine.

    At Rocket I had the best burger I have ever eaten. It's worth appreciating the significance of that. I have had a lot of burgers in my life. About three decades' worth. Many were very good. Rarely I found an excellent one. But Rocket's was the best. The dessert - a chocolate brownie - was also supremely supreme. Sadly I can't recommend this restaurant to anyone, because if people start to realise how good it is, it will be forever fully booked and I will never be able to get a table there again.
