Loved the experience. Cocktails were divine, ambience & snacks great. Staff moved us to a table with a great view-awesome!
Service is poor, while the blonde lady was very pleasant, the gentleman that served us was rude and had a superior attitude. He needs to change the job, definitely not suited as a waiter.
Fantastic views, great over all atmosphere and impeccable service, most of all the food was delicious. Great place to take a date.
Great views, delicious cocktails, much nicer than heading a little further up to the viewing platform. Money saved meant extra cocktails in Gong!
Amazing views and a lovely ambiance. Would definitely go again.
Great reception & entry on arrival
We had a midday booking hence nice & relatively quiet with no interruptions apart from attentive wait staff
Cloud cover such that views were limited
No fault of the organisation
Will be back with friends in tow !!
Fantastic drinks and small snacks. We had the Scan Me and a vodka drink.
The venue was amazing and the views from the 52nd floor were stunning especially as it got darker. We arrived at 2100 and were given a window seat 5 mins in to our arrival.
The drinks are pricey ranging from £18 and above but it's what you kind of expect being the Shard.
Overall amazing experience and the service was second to none!
While it may be pricey, the view is well worth it!
Exceptional vue. Bad cocktail
I came to Gong to celebrate my 50th birthday.
We were escorted to our window table pre-booked with a Bollinger champagne at £150 when people arrived directly without booking and enjoyed a table next to us with 1 cocktail and 1 diet coke!
Our waiter Manuel was not polite, neither friendly. We had to request snack with our drinks after 20mn being seated. We had to pour our champagne most of the time! He was much nicer to the two female clients who sat next to us.
I would have taken a bottle of LP champagne instead, saved £60 and enjoyed it more than Bollinger, as it looked like we were the only one by the window to have purchased the package.
I’m a Hotel GM who just relocated to London and after such a poor customer service and waiter’s attitude, I will never return.
Great views and cocktails were lovely. Little noisy and crowded around the bar though which was distracting. It did clear out though as the evening went on which made for a much more relaxing experience
I took a friend who was visiting from Australia.
We arrived at our table 15 minutes early for a 17:45 booking. I was aware that we had the table for 90 minutes at the time of making the booking.
At 18:50, when I asked for another round of drinks, I was told that we only had 10 minutes left on the booking and would I have time for another drink.
When paying £90 for two gin and tonics and two rum and cokes (including a £10 service charge), I don’t expect to be rushed away from a pre booked table 15 minutes early.
Not a great table. Waitress was good. Then we were swapped to a waiter. He asked if we would like another bottle of wine between 5 of us with 30 minutes remaining. I said yes. That though never turned up. When I asked where it was with 15 minutes left on the table I was told we didn’t have time for it now. We left soon after and the waiter had to remove the “optional” service charge. The drinks were ok. Olives ok. Just in the end a poor experience and very arrogant service. Poor show.
Great service & attentive staff. Thankyou for making our trip to London so special.
We were given a window table which was a bonus. It was a little cramped as my seat was jammed against a large sofa behind it. The welcome was very friendly, but we were not offered drinks for about 10 minutes. Being cocktails, they took some time to come after we had ordered them but I guess that was to be expected. We were given some snacks in the way of nuts and olives, which were very tasty. Otherwise, it is a great bar with an amazing view and I highly recommend it.
I think the doormen should be more discriminatory on the clientele allowed in.
Brilliant bar, we didn't have food but I couldn't not select it on the review so I put 5 star as I can imagine it would be! The view is fantastic, drinks are lovely, excellent choice, such a nice place to sit and relax, you must visit the toilet too to sit on the heated toilet seat, everything about this place is amazing!
Lovely experience at an incredible venue and would highly recommend to anyone. The window table rotation policy is brilliant...we were sat at an inner table initially and placed our orders for our first drinks. The chap who took our orders returned around 5 minutes later saying he had a window table available for us which was awesome :) views are as you'd expected 50+ floors above London, absolutely stunning. Drinks were lovely and very well presented. Some people baulk at the price but myself and my other half enjoyed this venue at a window seat for almost 2 hours, had a cocktail each and shared a nightcap for less than £70. Not bad value all things considered!
The only thing good about this place is the view. The ambience is nice and fancy but we had to wait 30 minutes downstairs before we got in (although we had a reservation!) and the cocktails are very mediocre and expensive.
The view is really something to pay for. The cocktails are tasty. I did not mind paying that bill
Wir haben den Geburtstag meiner Frau und ihres Zwillingsbruders dort am Abend gefeiert. Jeder von uns hat unterschiedliche Cocktails probiert, wir waren begeistert. Obwohl unsere Reservierung nur anderthalb Stunden betrug, wurde uns am Ende noch ein Tisch am Fenster angeboten. Dort hatten wir einen fantastischen Blick auf die nächtliche Themse. Wir haben noch gut eine Stunde dort gesessen und einen guten Rotwein genossen. Je später der Abend, desto ansprechender wurde auch das Publikum. Ein wirklich ansprechendes Erlebnis. Wir werden sicher wieder kommen.
Fantastic view and wonderful service, a little expensive but worth it.
The service and a view is amazing. I would not recommend the cocktails .
The view alone would give gong bar a 5 star. Staff were excellent cocktails were amazing and would definitely recommend to anyone. Will definitely go back
Excellent views across London, and nice bar with interesting selection of cocktails to try!
Although we had a wonderful time, at one point my mother wanted a pot of tea. We had spent money on champagne, but when we asked for a pot of tea we were told that it wasn’t on offer despite afternoon tea being served at the same time. While I appreciate it was not on the menu I believe that sometimes exceptions should be made and customer service should prevail in a 5star establishment.
Initially service was very poor, host was busy chatting to other staff and not taking note of patrons in section overlooking train tracks despite it being half empty except for a large table with free flowing champagne (host must of been counting on a good tip) we were was placed in a corner on low stools so no thought to the fact that we were older guests, waited 10mins for first drinks order to be collected, finished these within 10 mins and then waited another 25 mins of being ignored before finally asking to be moved, I know this sounds entitled but if we paying £200 + tip for 8 drinks and service then that service better be exceptional, I work hard for my money and this was a treat for our 27th anniversary, honestly a visit to the wc was more of a thrill due to heated seats. After being moved to a table with proper chairs, the new hostess made sure we were well cared for and she was the epitome of excellence, we would go back but I’d specify chairs with backs and a designated area overlooking the river (if possible).
Although we booked we found the service to be very poor and was put in a corner even though those in front of us had not booked and had a much better seating view. The bar tender forgot our order twice and to be honest the overall experience for the prices was just poor.
Superb view coupled with superb service, we decided to eat in the restaurant after an hour in the bar and we were escorted to the restaurant table directly and our bottle of wine transferred directly to the restaurant as well. Table at the window again and 5 star service, the sushi in the bar was a little overpriced but very good.
Booked a table to celebrate a friend's birthday with a few drinks. The view was stunning, decor was stylish and the service immaculate. Drinks were excellent and very much worth the price considering the setting and atmosphere. Complimentary savoury snacks were also a nice touch and went well with the cocktails. Will definitely be coming again.
Go for the view. Such an amazing view across London at night. Cocktails were good but expensive. I guess you’re paying for that view. The service was good and the bar decor is tasteful.
Unfortunately didn’t like the drinks. But the service was great
The views were outstanding and cocktails were lovely. Our server was very polite and helpful!
Great views of the city. We went as the sun was setting. Lovely. A good range of cocktails and a bit pricey but as a treat now and again we’ll worth a visit. Staff were very friendly a helpful when choosing drinks. Well worth a visit.
Staff were rude. Waiter was great. My drink had a hair in it and he took care of the situation and complaint straight away. Rest of the staff were deadly rude and stupidly pretentious. Would never visit GŎNG ever again
Looked after very well, great views, good choice of cocktails (ants as a garnish was optional), would go back
Overpriced drinks at a over-estimated place with service staff perfectly suits to the aforesaid :-(
Amazing night at Gong of 5 star excellence. Sheer luxury of Shangri La facilities backed up by exceptional service. Amazing range of world class cocktails and stunning London skyline views 52 floors up. We had a fantastic night - thank you!!
Great location with lovely ambience
Cocktails nice enough but not the best
