Ambiance is amazing -- love the roof terrace. One of my favourite places to bring clients, as it has a lovely view and is quiet. However I have been disappointed with the food on the three occasions I have been there. Steak and pork dishes come dry despite being ordered as Medium. I highly recommend the asparagus -- it's lovely! Service is ok -- received warm welcome, but once at table the service was not great etiquette wise. When provided suggestions for wines we were not offered the chance to try the wines before choosing. When our mains arrived, our sides did not arrive at the same time -- they arrive very much later. These all minor, but overall, great place but some dishes need reviewing.

Can’t really fault it. We had glorious weather and this was the perfect spot for it. Quieter and more elegant than the Madissons and Aviarys in the city in terms of decor and clientelle. Food and service great. It’s my fav roof top in the City now easy.

A beautiful roof terrace with lovely views of the city. Very good service to begin with but it faded during the meal and we have to chase up the bill in the end. The set menu was good. A lovely boutique hotel vibe.

Fab food and staff but the room didn’t lend itself to an ambient atmosphere. The way the room was constructed meant it was very, very noisy and we had to shout to hear each other. Rather like being in a club... shame as the atmosphere, staff and food were great.

Food was really good as well as service! The ambient was a bit loud in the conservatory, thought possibly affected primarily by the fact that the windows were closed due to the rainy weather. Overall though nice experience, would definitely recommend!

Great restaurant, friendly staff, fabulous food, amazing view... it was a bit cold in the dining room but other than that we had a really good time and enjoyed our evening. The restaurant did prepare a little surprise for my friend's birthday at the end of dinner which was very thoughtful!

We booked in for a 10.15pm dinner after a show, as we were staying at the hotel. The food and drinks were excellent. The loud clanking of cutlery being put away, the bar being closed up and generally feeling like we were in the way as they wanted to leave wasn’t great. I appreciate we were a late sitting, but don’t offer that if the experience isn’t going to be great.

The food and the service were outstanding. A creative and beautifully executed menu, the food was beyond delicious. The roof terrace is a rare outdoor dining space in London that despite its location was not overrun by noisy office workers who tend to ruin the ambience of most restaurants in this part of town. The service was excellent and non-obtrusive. In short, one of the best meals I have had in London in a long time!

Great venue if like us the sun was shining. Limited menu but you will find something to delight your taste buds.

I would recommend an earlier sitting like us 6.30 gives you chance to soak up the sun , warmth and views before it becomes to cool.

Thoroughly recommend if your looking for something a little more exclusive and peaceful to enjoy your evening.

First time at this venue and it is ideal for a warm summer evening. Welsh rabbit was a great take on welsh rarebit as the cheese element contained rabbit. Delicious. Grilled squid was soft and succulent. For lamb double chop, I was expecting Barnsley chop but it was a very tasty and well presented rack of lamb. The skate wing was thick and juicy. Peach crumble for 2 was a generous portion and excellent.
All in all a very good experience which I will repeat.

Lovely setting, the planting and design is very clever. Enjoy looking at all the buildings from this level, not too high. We had great food and freaky weather, the team up there coped really well! Even moving us to a different table in mid main course when the heavens opened! All done with the minimum fuss with care and detail, plus a bit of a laugh!

Seated promptly but had to wait an extraordinarily long time just to get tap water, not to mention giving our drink and food orders. Service improved with food delivery. I think it took 15 minutes for someone to come to our table after being seated. Food was decent.

Really good food e.g. scallops (bit too much butter) & we ordered another round of their Guinness bread!! The tuna could do with a bit more searing but it's a perfect summer salad in the sun!

A friend arrived late - we weren't sure she would make it - but the staff were able to move us from the small, shady table to a reasonably shaded larger one quickly and efficiently!

The views to The Shard or The Vase (Blackfriars/Southbank) are great but the immediate area is a bit too tall..........

Sensational secluded sun terrace with stunning views over London. Delicious skate wing with spring vegetables that looked like a rainbow on the plate. Impeccable service which ensured an easy relaxed lunch. Great place to impress a client.

Lovely setting, food was good but it stops there.

Service wasn’t great regarding changing by side for another alternative. Unfortunately this was not allowed. The Restuarant needs to get with the times and understand that not all customers want fries with there main meal and should get some alternative options.
Also it was a very rushed service and it seemed they wanted everyone out the restuarant so they could close. We had only just sat down and they asked us to order ASAP before the kitchen closed.
It’s a shame it’s a nice venue but much improvement needed for the prices they’re charging.
Much better roof top venues around where you’re treated better, I wouldn’t rush back.
