Lovely meal, friendly and attentive staff. Would definitely be going back
Go for the view rather than the food. Service was a little slow. Good place to go for drinks and if you want to celebrate with amazing views. Not such a good place if you’re looking for good food, friendly or attentive service or to have a good conversation. - got a bit noisy as the drinks started flowing elsewhere.
It was a magical evening, got there just before sunset and watched the city scape change to nighttime. The staff were attentive and friendly, and food was delicious, just one thing, my starter was very salty but that might have been my taste buds. Everything about the space was wonderful, even the toilets were an experience.
Service is extraordinary, choices for vegans very limited but vegetables that I had were delicious. Will go there again in near future.
Chance to catch up with the best of friends and family, the service was fabulous and entertaining.
Mediocre food with a great view.
Fantastic views over London and we got a really great table.
Service was brilliant and welcoming.
Food was delicious, we had the set lunch menu. Wine is expensive but we loved the whole experience.
Superb location, but are very high, even for london. Wine on a 4x or 5 x mark up. Cheapest bottles will set you back almost £50. Mains courses £40+. The food is good, but not exceptional. You are paying for view. So disappointing not to get a window table. We were offered a table by the window in the bar for dessert so that was ok, though the edge was taken off by being (quite) forcefully) asked to pay for the bill before we moved from the dining room table to the bar table. Like we were going to do a runner?
Something about the atmosphere, noisy, rushed service, false smiles and the feeling we were being ripped off means we won’t be be going back.
View from the gents quite extraordinary though.
Fantastic experience celebrating our anniversary.
Thank you so much for everything.
We will definitely be back!
A great time for my partner and myself. Celebrating 22 year anniversary. The reception and service were second to none.
Although we asked for a window table, we understood it couldn’t be guaranteed.
However they provided one for us! The views over London are indescribable.
The food exceptional, 2 starters of eggs benedict was our choice. The poached eggs were cooked to perfection.
All the courses of the brunch menu were superb.
Five stars recommendation.
On arrival, slightly earlier we asked if we could have a table by the window but we were informed they were reserved, despite phoning earlier and being told this wasn't possible. (I think what happens they move people to the window as a table becomes free and that is what their waiting list is). but we were not offered that option. We were however, after expressing our disappointment, offered a seat after our meal in the bar by the window with complimentary drinks. However, by that time it was past 2230 and we had to watch the time for our last train home so it wasn't altogether satisfactory. I do feel had we been a couple and not two ladies perhaps a table by the window for the meal would have been forthcoming.
I feel that their ansaphone message should be changed saying it's not possible to reserve a seat by the window as it depends on the day as to who is lucky enough to be seated there.
What a fantastic lunch. Great service, beautiful views and the food was too die for. Can't wait to come back!
This is definitely the place to come if you have someone you want to impress who loves a view. That's what you're paying for.
The service was friendly but slow, difficult to get attention (I'm not high maintenance) - overall it felt understaffed. I would have expected better.
The food was fine but I would normally expect to be more impressed for the price, however, that's not why you go to the Shard.
Very enjoyable evening sitting next to the window was great.
When we first arrived, the lady receptionist was very unfriendly. She didn’t greet us, didn’t give us a smile and gave us an attitude when we’re 10 mins late even when we told them in advance.
After, there was another lady who brought us to the table, also no greeting and smile. We sat down and kindly asked if she could help us order water but she refused and told me that I should wait for someone else to help me.
After a while, about 15 mins, there was a waiter coming to us finally. We ordered two starters and two main. We also asked for a bread basket but only arrived after 20 mins after we order. We were starving!
When starters are being served, that one particular waiter didn’t ask us to move my phone away which is the only thing on the table at that time. He decided to push away my phone from my side next to me and it slide to another corner of the table.
Beef was nice, sides came late. Halibut was extremely dry like a biscuit even the sauce which was ok but a bit watery flavour can’t help to ‘moist’ the dry fish. I feel like I was eating a dry sponge without being wet. Very disappointed.
Dessert was nice, very generous portion for two.
Going here once is more than enough, will not be back for the horrible service and ok food. Not worth the price.
Beautiful ambience , undisturbed cozy corner with a marvelous view to catch up with a dear friend . Food was excellent though choice was extremely limited for vegetarians
very very good🤩
Stunning atmosphere, lovely food and great views.
Excellent service, good food and an amazing view onto the London skyline.
And the staff were sensitive to our requests as well. We had a lovely evening indeed!
Poor experience - the food was not great.. the waitress that was serving us was in a rush and she kept rushing, that was not nice. The security guy from Aqua was also rude when we were leaving.
Won’t be back.
We visit the Aqua Shard for my Fiancées 35th birthday, I honestly couldn’t fault anything, from the arrival to the departure the experience was truly magnificent.
This was as expected but obviously after the lockdown they were a bit short staffed. Food was better than I thoiught it would be. Looked good, was well presented and had lots of it, especially the roast. The vegetarian option looked a bit small and the breakfast options were indeed breakfast options! View qas fantastic and the cocktail bar was amazing. It has had a refurb. Will be there again.
Nice and classy with an amazing view👌🏿
The food is always a bit of a let down, overpriced for what it is, but the ambience and view are amazing! Great service from our waiter Bogdan who went above and beyond to make our evening special!
Very basic menu .. Over rated
It was a great experience, enjoyed the food from the starter, main course and dessert. Great customer service from beginning to end.
Incredible view- very grateful for the table we had. Food, drinks and
Lovely experience, delicious food portions were modest but fine for lunch
We have been served by Farid, he was absolutely absolutely fantastic , excellent customer service a personal thank you. Farid made our day special also another gentleman very attentive thank you.
We have had a great experience like always and will be coming back soon
Aqua Shard has a reduced menu, not suited to everyone taste. The mains portions we selected came as starter portions, we left feeling hungry which has never happened before.
The service was good, we had a lovely waitress, unfortunately due to Covid the place was cooler than usual.
I’ve been to aqua shard before and found the food really nice ! On this occasion however I was disappointed my steak was over cooked when I asked for medium rare and found the side orders a little bland compared to my last visit ! I think i just got them on a bad day I’m sure the food will be back to a high standard soon ! Service was good and ambiance nice considering the circumstances.
Very disappointed in the quality and price of the wine. Limited rose selection. No French rose. Terribly expensive for what it was.
It was very great eat out for us. Nice view , food and service were excellent!
Had a wonderful view! Food was great as well, definitely worth it and will definitely come back.
Thank you for your glowing review! We are pleased to hear you enjoy your visit to Aqua Shard. I very much hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back in not too distant future.
We had a great dinner with outstanding service. The team was great. Thanks to David for making us feel special
Amazing! a very pleasant atmosphere but the view did it all!

All amazing 😁. Service is a top!!! Brilliant. Thanks
