Service was understaffed so had to wait a long time to get served. Toilet lacked toilet paper.
Food wise, was okay but nothing to shout about.
Very loud group of people next to us wasn’t ideal. The draft by the window made it cold as well.
Lunch was fab! Everything about our visit was lovely
Nice ambience, right by the Thames river. Food menu is nice, lunch special 2/£14 or 3/£18 is an excellent deal, even though the choices were very limited (1 starter/ main/ dessert to choose from). Service was attentive and excellent. Recommended
We booked a friendly business lunch. The views by the river are awesome. The service was brilliant, very friendly yet efficient.
The food was interesting, but I thought in some aspects a bit too complicated. The quality of the ingredients was great.
Overall this was a very good value lunch, and I do recommend Northbank restaurant.
Thank you for your review – we are delighted you enjoyed your lunch and the service you received. While there are some complex dishes on the menu, we do endeavour to balance that out with some 'uncomplicated' dishes, too. We hope to see you again at Northbank and feel free to ask for a recommendation of one of the simpler dishes. We are glad you noticed the quality of the produce we use as we are proud of the suppliers we use. Many thanks
Overall very good. Bar service very slow and didn’t even seem to realise there was a Happy Hour on!! Certainly no explanation of which drinks qualified.
Please accept our apologies for the member of staff serving you not knowing about the Happy Hour - we will make sure all the staff are aware of the deal from now on. Thanks for your review.
Enjoyed a great lunch food and service were excellent
Serice was not great, the restaurant wasn't busy but yet we were left waiting for quite some time for our order to be taken, food to be served and bill to arrive.
Went on the 50% off the a la carte January offer - nice place and really good food!
Accommodating staff, good food and excellent value with the 50% deal.
good food , good personal but the themperature was cold in the dining room
Great views of the Thames, nice buzzy atmosphere, good food once you’ve navigated through the slightly chaotic menu. We all really enjoyed it and it is a good venue for either a special occasion or a business lunch - I know because I’ve used it for both.
Lunchtime menu was a little ‘dinner’ like.
Could expand to wider range of salads and lunchtime style foods.
Really good food, lovely view of the river/tate modern. We were disappointed the express lunch menu had no choice at all - but fortunately liked what was on offer.
Cold day outside and chilly in there too. Staff ok but in need of some training. For example, main course done - waiter checked our wine which was finished and asked whether we wanted more, which we didn’t. That was removed but our empty plates remained for us to look at for at least 5 more minutes. Macarons which came with the bill were as cold as the weather outside and so weren’t nice. Disappointed.
We had arrived 30 minutes earlier than our booking but we’re made especially welcome in the bar and placed under no pressure to move. As we hadn’t seen each other for months it was perfect.
Northbank’s Cornish origins are subtly hidden until you check out the list of Cornish gins, beers, ciders and seafood. We tried them all.
Food was delicious, our party ate Cornish sea bream, Welsh lamb knuckle and Scottish venison haunch. Service was discreet but friendly.
The view across to the Tate Modern and the Millennium Bridge is excellent.
Northbank is a hidden treasure.
Overpriced. Oyster were not great and cod was undercooked. Slow service despite not being very busy
I was here with a friend, and we had a fabulous time. The menu was terrific: great and interesting choices. We both had cod for main and thought it exceptional. Loved the wine list, too. Great staff and well looked after. We loved it. And what a great location. Well done to all at Northbank.
A nice room with friendly and appropriately attentive staff. Good and pretty interesting choices on the menu, well-priced. Nice enough wine selection, but again fairly priced. Enjoyable.
Sadly not as good as in the past - it was meant to be a special occasion but they offered a rubbish table to start (to be fair they were very quick and pleasant to set up new table when we asked for something better). At the staggering prices the amuse bouche didn't appear as in the past and they charged for bread - come on ! I wanted to impress the family but felt a little disappointed to be honest.
The location is prime; right on the River Thames and overlooking Bankside, so a great place to soak up the river life and the sun if you sit on the terrace. However, despite this being a relatively quiet day, the service was dreadfully slow.
We had to remind our waitress of our long-awaited food (straight into mains and it still took 1.25 hours to get it). The food was 'ok' but as this was lunchtime, we had to rush it.
Overall a disappointment and there are plenty of much beter options nearby.
Great food and superb table outside on a sunny day!
Very helpful staff, well priced wine options, good quality wine and food. We had drinks and sharing platters - I look forward to returning for dinner sometime soon.
The description and previous reviews did not really reflect this restaurant. Food was rather disappointing for the prices, service was average at best. I had specifically mentioned this was a birthday celebration but this was not even noted. And a particular bug-bear of mine is waiting staff who keep refilling wine glasses without being asked in order to push more purchases - please stop this rather old-fashioned practice, its not considered good service in the 21st century and is irritating to guests are driving.
Hadn't been to Northbank before, but needed a place in the area for a business dinner. Ratings on OpenTable prompted me to book at Northbank. Location is good, overlooking the millennium bridge and the Tate modern. Food was fine, but not exceptional. Staff were pleasant and attentive.
Good food and good value because we had the Friday Special. Small issue with the service - overly keen to sell us extras - bread, water etc to top up the bill. And when we did get the bill -extra cost had been added for the sauces that accompanied our steaks. After complaining, the head waiter took the extra cost off, but it could have been avoided if our waitress had told us in the 1st place that the sauce was extra.
I always use Northbank as a treat be it for a birthday, anniversary or whatever and the venue never fails to please!
Food was lovely but portions on small side, esp mains. We ended up having 3 courses and not full.
Great value set meal. Will definitely return in the future.
Great staff, gorgeous cocktails, delightful food, awesome service AND good value for money.
We had the best time and would go again in a heartbeat
Whilst things may be different on other nights (I will need to go back and confirm!), this bar and restaurant was blissfully quiet on a Monday evening in this tucked away place on the Thames Path.
The food is excellent, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the prices are very good value for somewhere close to the City. And the view across the river is outstanding.
Great location and excellent service. A bit disappointed in the tortellini which was rather dry. Out waitress brought some delicious olive oil though and it was fixed. The set menu was very filling and not bad for the price. And those lovely views...
Great for a late lunch... Sun just in the right place
Great place for dinner and drinks.
Amazing service from the staff
Charged for still water, and an “optional” service charge. Food was fair.
Ideal for a special occasion or date as the restaurant offers a fairly quiet dining experience mid-week. Food was excellent.
Definitely recommend this restaurant. Spent enjoyable Saturday evening - restaurant was not busy. Service prompt, wines chosen by our waiter good. Would go back.
Service was sparse but food was great
Always first choice. I’ve lost count with how many times I’ve dined at Northbank. Excellent for every occasion and no excuse needed to dine there. Incredible dishes with an ever varied and interesting menu. The quality of the food is second to none and will put a smile on your face every time.
The bar is equally as exceptional with some of the best cocktails and interesting mixes you will have.
Lovely place with fantastic views and great food for January offer. Would definitely return.
Christian and his team have it spot on as usual! Excellent fish and fresh seasonal vegetables.
