As the name suggests, Butlers Wharf Chop House Restaurant is just the place if you’re in the mood for something meaty – don’t miss Head Chef Alexandru Sotirs' dry aged grass-fed steaks. Elegant without being stuffy, it’s a relaxed riverside destination where provenance is key, with the likes of Select Butchery, London cured salmon, Jersey Rock Oysters and native lobster. Sit back and enjoy that famous view of Tower Bridge (from the terrace if you’re lucky), you’re in safe hands

    Food was fantastic, had Sunday Lunch outside with a great view of London Bridge, was 14 degrees but the heaters kept us nice and toasty. Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Roast beef was perfectly cooked.

    We booked at table in the dining room, and had a problem finding the door which is around the back, and not clearly marked so we ended up walking past the dining room windows, and saw that it was barely occupied--not a good sign. When we went in the hostess took our name for the reservation, and said she had to go check on our table. She came back with a large woman who said we had to sit in the bar which was empty, and looked closed. We told her we booked in the dining room, and she responded forcefully, and rudely "You can sit in the bar area or you can leave!", so we sat down in the dark bar area alone, and to be honest we knew we weren't welcome for whatever reason, so we had her go get a bottle of sparkling water, and once she opened it we told her we were leaving. It was the least we could do for an establishment that acts like you should be treated like second-class citizens, and be glad for the privilege. I wouldn't eat at this establishment if they were the last restaurant on earth. I didn't try the food, but if the service is any indication of what's going on in the back of the house I'm certain it's abysmal. I should've paid more mind to the one-star tripadvisor reviews saying things like "This place has gone down hill!", and "Strictly a money-grab for tourists." Anyhow, found a lovely little Greek place around the corner that I suggest you dine with, as well, if you happen to be in the area. A reservation at the Butler's Wharf Chop House isn't worth much as the inmates are clearly running this asylum. It really makes you wonder what kind of dysfunctional nonsense is going on with this business, but lucky for us the experience ended at the door. Caveat Emptor. This place is broken.

    We ordered two filets for our table. They came out and looked delicious and thick. They were grossly undercooked and came out rare. They were sent back and were burnt on the one side we had cut through originally and still rare on the other side. When we finally took a bite it had no flavor other than charred/burnt. Disappointing for our final dinner in London. Next time we visit the city we definitely won’t visit this restaurant again!

    Picked for its location which didn't disappoint, can dine with tower bridge in view. Service was great; friendly and attentive servers. Our first time dining at this restaurant. Quite boring and dated in design / decor. Fresh flowers on the tables was a nice touch though. Toilets could do with a bleach, brown stained toilet bowls were a bit gross. Spoilt for choice on the menu, so many good things. It looked, smelled and tasted delicious but all our food was loaded in salt. I was enjoying my main but couldn't finish because it was just too salty. I thought it may have just been me, but the others with me all said the same and we all had different dishes. The chef needs to calm down with the salt! Quite pricey (£250 for 3 of us, 2 courses each and 2 bottles of pinot grigio and 2 bottles of water). Wouldn't rush back but would probably enjoy a drink on the Riverside terrace in the summer.

    Location on the banks of the Thames by Tower Bridge is one of the most spectacular in London. The Chop House served good meat based dishes which hit the spot for a lunch with a friend but it was not exceptional. However what I remember the most is how annoying service was, constantly interrupting topping up water (unnecessarily), asking about food quality (several times). It was the beginning of service so the restaurant was quiet but if clients are engrossed in conversation please don’t interrupt!

    The place itself is really nice and has a beautiful view on tower bridge. At the contrary the food was very average. The meat was fine but the sides were not seasoned at all. Overall, it was quite overpriced for the quality of the food and the view doesn’t make up for it.

    Our spacious, airy restaurant is a glowing tribute to a traditional English boating house or cricket pavilion with oak-lined walls and comfortable solid seating. In finer weather the doors can be opened on to the riverside terrace providing al fresco dining with the best view of Tower Bridge.
