    We had a terrible experience at 12th knot. We had a table booked through open table. Upon arrival we were told that they couldn’t see our reservation but we were told to go upstairs and check with the concierge. Whilst at the door the security guard made a gesture to the woman on the door to not let us in. We believe this was based on the way we were dressed as we were not super fancy or in designer clothing. Once we got up the stairs we were told they did not have our reservation even when we were able to show the reservation on the open table app. We left embarrassed and our night was ruined. Very disappointed at the way we were judged and treated. Will not return.

    Was fine but wanted to sit facing the river and they didn't move us even when there were free seats and we were there first. You also have to flag servers down so they could stand being a bit more attentive. But the cocktails are exceptional and it's v chilled to have a drink n a chat.

    Great rooftop bar and excellent cocktails. This is not a restaurant though as per what the website states that is suitable for dinner. DJ was very good and friendly personnel. The food was okay and was served in platters. They did not bring any plates or cutlery so we ended having hot dog and sushi in a napkin.

    The service was awful and the requirements entirely unreasonable. We were informed each individual was required to spend £50, however this was not specified prior to booking. I will not be booking again in the near future.

    The location is fab. The receptionist / maitre d' was quite rude when we arrived; i explained that we had called and spoken to a colleague to say we were going to be 5 minutes late for the reservation for our friend's 50th and he simply didn't believe me. i showed him the call log on my phone and gave him the name of the person i had spoken to as he blatantly didn't believe me. He was pretty unpleasant to be honest. Eventually we got a table. Food was ok - the cheese platter was good, but the other portions were on the small side for the price. Service was pretty good though. Wouldn't rush back.

    Myself an my partner booked 12th Knot for our one year anniversary after deliberating on many rooftop bars. As a result we favoured 12th Knot and we were not disappointed as were shown to our table to peruse over the cocktail list. The waitress was helpful as my partner has a number of allergies and we enjoyed our drinks which were reasonably priced (yes, expensive to us Northerners but not much different to Cloud 23 in Manchester so we cannot complain). A spectacular view of London is provided and is well worth the price of drinks and gives an excellent opportunity to take a great photo. The ambience was chilled and relaxed setting a tone of a calm and laid back atmosphere creating an excellent backdrop to the sensational cityscape. We look forward to returning at a later date.

    Drinks were good and typical London prices for a roof top bar. Service was very very slow. Tables around us were getting a lot more attention. It felt like we were being ignored because we were younger than others and therefore they thought we couldn’t afford it and consequently didn’t pay us any attention.

    I booked a table reservation for my partners birthday and on first glimpse all was perfect. However, I would only recommend this venue for one drink. Poor table service! We were made to feel not a priority. Be prepared to wait, found it challenging to grab the servers attention. Instead go to the bar to place your order. The atmosphere seemed very formal full of office suits, perhaps a better vibe on a weekend. What a shame! I chose this venue for my partners birthday because of the live music and previous reviews of the rooftop view. This service does not compare to the impeccable service at Lyon-ess downstairs.

    Great lively venue with a fabulous view of St Pauls, the City and the river. The cocktail menu was innovative and fun, the live music (a little loud) but gave the place a fantastic vibe and it was busy, bussling and a lot of fun. Service could be a little slow- but that is because it was so lively. We had the table for two hours (inside) and like most other people we went out to the balcony for the views throughout the evening. Lovely venue.

    We had good seats/views but that's easy enough to do when you have a rooftop bar. The service was abysmally slow - we sat for at least 20 minutes trying to catch someones attention to order more wine, only to then be told our table turnaround was going to be needed in 10 minutes. Vegetarian options for food were fine and that's being generous (beware, I think the chips have parmesan on) but my cheese still had plastic wrapped around it. The songs choices were good from the live band but the actual singing wasn't brilliant. For the price, I expect better.

    Had a lovely evening with girlfriends, the bar area is stunning, the views are fab, drink selection great. The service, however was not great, the waitresses were very moody and not very attentive. However, the head guy (didnt get his name) was really accomodating and let us have the table for longer than usually allowed. Would definately go back as had a great vibe. Hopefully the staff will smile and be happy by then!
