    Pleasant experience. Prawn cocktail was not great, defrosted prawns and a bland sauce. Better were the mains: better-than-it-looked ribeye and a seabass dish that was nicely put together. Service was efficient but a bit tense. The young waitress made a mistake on the bill and her manager audibly made her come and correct it rather than intervene with a smile and apology herself. Nice setting, which was why we came but not good value compared to comparably priced venues in east central London (Bibo, 14 Hills and Gloria spring to mind).

    Have just been for lunch for my birthday. Venue is beautiful and has a very calm atmosphere. The staff were lovely, very friendly and attentive. We had a cabin outside which was a great experience. Comfy and great views. A little bit tight on space, but not uncomfortable at all. Food was great, we had fish and chips, wagyu burger and quiche, all presented lovely and very tasty and filling. All in all a lovely relaxed lunch

    We had a wonderful time at Mercer Roof Terrace on Mother's Day. We booked one of the Igloos outside, which made it all the more special. The service was outstanding, the Mother's Day set lunch was brilliant value while also tasting delicious, and the whole experience was very memorable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the restaurant and will definitely visit again.

    Food portions were too small and I have never seen sausage rolls dissected up into very thin slithers. The battered cod I had was a very small piece of fish and it had to be returned to the kitchen as the first serving was cold which was not great. I dined at this restaurant a couple of years ago and in my opinion seems to have deteriorated since then but what does work in it's favour is the location , ambience and amazing views from the rooftop. Service was good too with friendly staff

    Roof terrace lovely staff very polite but food was poor and very over priced. Cocktails expensive and watery. Prawn cocktail starter at £18 very poor! Fish soup was very poor the fish and mussels were good but the soup itself was thick salty gloup! Complained to staff and accepted with a shrug ! Over priced just got this terrace for a drink and the view definitely not the food.

    Chose this restaurant because it was supposed to be good for watching the NYE fireworks, and they had a set menu. We had one of the greenhouses on the roof which we were initially excited about. However, of the 5 courses of the set menu - they only brought us three (those three were delicious though). When we told them about it, they said it was too late and the kitchen had closed. They also forgot to bring the bottle of wine that we ordered- though they didn't forget to add it to the bill. When we pointed out that we didn't get half of what the bill showed, they took off an amount that was nowhere near equal to what we didn't get. They also messed up our coffee order, and again charged us for it (we got it taken off eventually). Lastly, please know that the view of the fireworks from this rooftop is far away and restricted as there are 2 big buildings blocking the full view, and you do not get the full effect.

    The food at Christmas dinner was very disappointing-really mediocre and not a good value. We expected a view of the city but the space was cramped and there was no view at all. The service was nice but didn’t make up for the poor food. We wish we had made another choice for this festive occasion.

    It would be an idea to offer the vegetarian option the Christmas vegetables. Just a piece of cauliflower with some 'wilted greens' isn't going to fill a hungry diner up. The soup was OK, but far too rich.

    We had the Christmas menu in the rooftop cabin, and it was an amazing and memorable evening. Great food, great service. The only detail I would point out is that there are no loudspeakers in the cabin, so it can feel a bit too quiet - would be perfect with some ambient music.

    I went with friends as a Christmas and leaving celebration, and the evening was sublime. We were given a individual hut outside which was just stunning against the night sky (and really well heated), attended to by Shirley who was just fantastic. The food and drinks were incredible and the service, superb. We’re heading back soon for a chilled afternoon tea; already looking forward to it. Thank you again, have a wonderful festive season!

    Staff was unfriendly . We asked if we can swap a main from Christmas meal & was told “no problem “ however, bill came out with it charged on and we asked about it and were told we cannot do that and the waiter never said we could. Basically, the staff argued with us and called us liars! There is no Christmas decoration or anything to suggest it was a Christmas menu.

    The service was incredibly slow and the food was not up to what you were led to believe from the website and other reviews. Far too expensive for what was delivered. It is a shame, the location is good and the restaurant is on the rooftop with nice decor.

    I hosted my annual "Ladies Who London" Holiday Luncheon at Mercer Roof Terrace and we received wonderful service from the staff. They were able to accommodate a last-minute increase in the reservation from 10 to 14 people. Given that we were such a large group, the food came out relatively quickly, and was very tasty. I would absolutely recommend coming here with a group of friends!

    Celebrated my best friend’s 50th birthday at Mercer and we had a wonderful evening. The manager on finding out it was a special birthday moved us to a heated outdoor cabin where we enjoyed beautiful views of London Town. The manager and all staff were attentive, kind and thoughtful. A great restaurant for a special occasion.
