A great restaurant for couples and during the day only! I have used Oblix a few times now but this is my first experience with a group & at night time and I wouldn't do it again!
At night we were made to feel rushed to place our order, some of the dishes we wanted weren't available (not sure if this was because it could take an hour to cook as the waiter took the order and then came back to say it was no longer available!?!), as a table of 5 we were put on a table at the back of the room so you may as well be in any restaurant! As you can't see any of the view! There is no area within the restaurant to go and sample the view either so being that high up is a complete waste of time. I don't mind paying any amount for a meal as long as it was worth it but this had no value and was over priced leaving me unimpressed!

We had the most amazing view of the city. We were very lucky to get window sitting. The food and service were nothing but excellent.

Fantastic service and really really tasty food. Prices not the worst but that doesn't matter if the food is worth it. Lamb and sea bass was amazing. Reccommend both.

The restaurant and the location itself is amazing. All the staff were really friendly and accomodating. It definitely an experience to have. However, there not many options for vegetarians or vegans. The cocktails and ambiance is amazing.

Although I had reminded them about being closer to the view, this was neglected. However they corrected this mistake later.

My sister’s birthday was celebratd with a nice gesture.

The waiter taking care of us was awesome and perfect.

The food was horrible though ambiance was fine. The service wasn’t great. I had to ask to refill my water multiple times with no results. Finally, received my water after the bill came! Unacceptable! The tartar arrived with hair in it and the duck was undercooked and had no flavor. Wouldn’t go back.

Food was good but the rest of the experience was kind of average. Views are great if you get a table by the windows. If you don’t, then the ambience is nothing to write home about.

View excellent, but the Sunday Roast was more like eating at the local pub, meat was more like a lump of steak not a finely sliced piece of beef you expect, full of fat and tough.
Vegetables turned up cold
So very expensive for what we had, disappointing as my wife always wanted to go, been now never to return
Unlike Smiths at wapping which was excellent the previous night

Went for the Sunday lunch which came with free flowing champagne, although we had a table in a booth in a corner, we did enjoy it. Food was good and the Yorkshire puddings were some of the best I have had in a restaurant.

They were told twice that it was for a birthday, over the phone and on the day at the restaurant but they managed to forget about it. The waiter even asked as we were taking our seat... "is it for a special occasion?" Wow!

I enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. The views can’t be beat, so I would suggest going just before sunset so you can have the day and night view. We ordered the ribeye, mashed potatoes, fried squid, and broccoli. We also ordered several cocktails. Everything was delicious.

We took our son and daughter-in-law to celebrate a pregnancy. Window seating made the views particularly good, but although we lunched early the service was very slow - with 30 minutes before drinks arrived. All the dishes were excellent, particularly the suckling pig and lobster. Good choice of wines (though oddly listed under mysterious categories) but we enjoyed a Priorat and they found us a delicious Chilean wine to replace the Cahors which had sold out.

Read some negative reviews however our experience was second to none!
Attended on 31st of a July for my son’s 21st birthday. Amazing service - staff couldn’t do enough and the atmosphere was perfect as not too austere for my 12 year old. Everyone appeared to be enjoying in the restaurant - easy to stroll and look out - magnificent views and would definitely recommend. The flavours of food were perfect. Something to truly remember

The food is delicious, the service was poor.
We weren’t offered any bread as we sat down and when we asked for some with our starter ( the burratta) when it was served to us we were informed it would be 5 mins before it would arrive. We declined the bread. The wine waiter looked bored and wasn’t particularly friendly. Every time we asked a question another waiter had to be called over, as our server didn’t have the information.
The music was very loud and we struggled to hold a conversation.
A disappointment as we had dined there previously and recommended it our friends we were dining with.
To be honest we won’t rush back, such a shame as the views are incredible, left feeling like they really don’t care about wether you will come back

Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of us during our visit to the Oblix west restaurant. Me and my fiancé booked a table at Oblix to celebrate my birthday on the 25th of July at 9:00 pm. It was the hottest day of the year and I wasn’t feeling very well with my stomach, however I didn’t want to cancel our dinner.
The staff is amazing and very accommodating. They took extra care of me during our dinner even if it was extremely busy night and the restaurant was full. The service was above and beyond our expectations. I would like to thank both of the girls that took care of me as well as the rest of the staff that they were so kind and helpful and made sure that I was feeling ok.
The food was LOVELY! We had couple of starters and side dishes to share and for main courses we had wild mushroom orzo pasta and the sirloin steak. We also had drinks and dessert.
Overall we had a great dinner with one of the the best views in London and your staff helped to make it that way. We will definitely go back and we really appreciate all of your hard work and kind consideration.

Our food was over cooked which the chef agreed however the service was another level offering us discounts on the duck and free desserts for us both
They also moved us to a window seat as soon as one came available so ended up being a perfect date
