Our indoor Glass Orangery protects against the elements but retains the fantastic views, allowing you to eat and drink all year-round. During the colder months the inspiration for the menu comes from the Alpine regions and being on the Rooftop is like a ski holiday without the hard work – think cheese fondue and melting raclette with hot cocktails to warm your insides.

Mixed households permitted on outdoor terrace tables for lunch/dinner, only if outdoor table is booked in advance. Areas are NOT interchangeable.

My husband and I were seated 'in the kitchen area' on the roof top and it was quite stuffy up there due to the kitchen. Hardly any atmosphere compared to the open air rooftop space (we asked to move however we weren't allowed to move tables...). The waitress wasn't very friendly either. Overall, we wouldn't go again.

Seated indoors we still had a lovely view of the London night sky. The food was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the tempura squid I had as a starter which came served with fresh chilli so may not be to everyone’s taste. Washed down with a Sauvignon Blanc. It was a little pricey but worth it.

It is a pandemic so outside seats shouldn’t be smoking zones, have a few separate tables, but different households can’t mix!!, not pleasant when eating. 15% service charge is a joke and we were not allowed to change that, because the ‘computer won’t let them’!. No allergy menu which is actually a EU requirement. None of the staff covered their noses. Over use of pepper, I actually would like to taste my vegetables. Clearly they had pre-made dishes and where reheating. If you want more customers, charge a bit less:)

Really disappointed by the vibe at Boundary. The food was great, however service was sub standard. We waited 20 minutes before someone taking our order (after we repeatedly asked) and were pretty much ignored throughout our time. We only stayed for 1 hour, due not even being asked if we wanted to order another drink. Overall disappointing, and probably won’t visit again.

Wasn’t a very good experience when we went for my boyfriends birthday last Saturday. I booked a table for 7.30 and we had left by 8pm and had no other bars to go to. We were sat outside and asked if we could order more drinks, the waitress said no you can settle the bill as it’s going to rain and I won’t serve you. We were then asked for £27 for 2 single drinks and not given a bill just have a card machine. Disappointed.

Beautiful location with great ambiance. The food was absolutely delicious, well presented and the portions were very generous. Nice wine selection and tasty cocktails. Friendly and helpful staff.

Great job of social distancing, the venue was kept at low capacity but still had a nice vibe. Very clean and nice toilets!

The food was not the best. The Calamari was weird, either not fresh or overcooked. Not fit for eating. The steak was also bad, overcooked and came out cold. Disappointing as Boundary Rooftop used to be very good. Standards have slipped.

Service has also slipped. It was almost as if we were bothering our waitress even when orders were obviously forgotten.

Not the most extensive menu nor wine list but the quality of both is superb.
Attentive staff, relaxed atmosphere. Two hour limit when busy but at least more people get to enjoy this place. Had the feel of an exclusive place but still very comfortable. A great venue.

For the price it wasn’t as expected, nice atmosphere but our waiter did not engage with us at all he was very moody and did not smile at all. For a bill of £125 in the current climate I would expect exceptional service being friendly.
Food and drinks were great whole experience is what counts was celebrating a friends birthday and it wasn’t as special as expected.
Wouldn’t return again.

It is such a beautiful space and the food is lovely. Sadly there is no system for giving restaurant customers any kind of priority access to the roof lounge area once the 2-hour table time is up. When we asked we were met with quite rude responses from the staff and even though we were found a space just as we were about to leave they then did ask for that seating space back again later too. All in all I probably won’t go back even though the vibe and space are great. Customer service for me needs improvement.

Nice setting with lots of heaters about so lovely in the evening. Food is quite poor, our mains took about 2 minutes to arrive which was quite alarming and didn't really taste anything special.

Drinks are very nice so would recommend going for them rather than for a meal.

We had a decent meal at Boundary but I probably wouldn’t rush back. The food was good and the cocktails were very nice. The setting is very pretty so if you’re looking for a nice rooftop in Shoreditch it’s a good option (although I would choose Queen of Hoxton for chilled drinks and Sky Pod Bar for great food and better service). We booked a couple of weeks in advance so I was disappointed that we were rushed out - as soon as we arrived we were told we had to be out by 8 by two different members of staff and then it was mentioned twice more during our meal. Two hours is very reasonable but the constant mentions made it difficult to relax and enjoy the setting. The service wasn’t terrible but it also wasn’t good - no one was particularly friendly or attentive. Overall I’d say it was a pretty average experience and the mandatory 15% service charge felt excessive when compared to the quality of service we actually received.
