Lovely setting & good food.
Very slow service, had to keep asking where our drinks were. Maybe the restaurant could invest in a few more bar staff & waiters.
One front of house member of staff was very rude & when we arrived she rather aggressively came over & told us we were only allowed the table for 1hr 45 mins. It made us feel very unwelcome.

Went on a date. Ate food - Lamb, Octopus, bread and prawns. Food tasted amazing but the prices were very steep for the portion sizes. After eating we ordered cocktails and were lucky enough to find space on the rooftop section. We sat near a heated lamp. It was comfortable and the music was to a level where it was relaxing but could still easily hear the other person speak. Good experience overall. Would recommend.

Good food and atmosphere but the portion size and type of food for the prices was not proprietary. £18 for 5 pieces of asparagus was not reasonable.

Good service but a little slow at some points.

Personnel très désagréable. Nous avons réservé une table pour juste boire un verre et on nous a attribué une table commune vers des grilles de barbecue.

Le serveur a clairement été dédaigneux et pas agréable.
Je ne recommande pas du tout!

At the time of booking the website and online menu displayed the option of Fondue. The only reason we came here was to enjoy a fondue with some Champagne in a nice setting. Upon being seated, myself and my partner were given two different menus, one with fondue and one without. When asking a waitress, she didn't apologise, instead said "Yeah, we're looking at not doing that anymore." Service was poor, communication was poor and, on reflection, the menu is vastly over priced for what it is. The views and setting were nice, though.

Very nice venue and we dined outside on a warmly heated terrace, despite heavy rain meaning we needed to move around a bit! Fondue to share for two was tasty, although for the price, should probably have included potatoes as well as bread and cornichons to dip.

The food was good, but wasn't spectacular. The calamari's "crispy batter" felt quite soggy. The sea bass was cooked well but the portion was quite small. The grilled vegetables needed butter or olive oil to add to the seasoning. The rooftop itself is very nicely design and has a good atmosphere, but I left the restaurant feeling quite hungry. I felt it was not value for money as 3 small dishes cost £80. Some of the starters are excessively priced. If the food was amazing, I would have no problem paying that. As an example - olives and almonds priced at £7 - excessive. Comparing it to another very similar restaurant in granary square kings cross:
Olives and Almonds: £3.5 - here £7
Crispy Calamari with chilli and lime: 9.5 - here £12.5
Sea bass is priced okay - going rate.

Please review your prices.

The food tasted good, however, very overpriced for the portion you get. A day after the bill we received a present from the restaurant saying we didn’t attent the booking, puting us on the black list of no-shows. The day after they appologized.

So disappointing...
I used to go to Boundary for years when living in London. We decided to go for lunch today and it is was a series of disappointments. Tacky atmosphere, very long wait and very average to bad food. The manager did apologize and made a commercial gesture but I would never go back.

Went here for my girlfriend’s birthday and had a pretty bleak overall experience. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice place, but the food portions are a joke and the service is awful. I brought a birthday cake for the celebration, and not only did the waitress come over and ruin the surprise by saying “regarding the birthday cake....” while my girlfriend was sat at the table, I later found out that she had come over to tell me if I wanted to have the cake in the restaurant, they would have to charge me £20, because it was company policy. Even ignoring all that, the service was poor, the waitresses and manager just stood in a corner laughing and joking with each other, and when we complained that one of the meals was simply not a ‘main’ and was over cooked, they refused to remove it from the bill because it was just the style. I’ll give a 2 out of 5 because it is a nice venue, but wouldn’t go again.

This rooftop is amazingly prepared for London's weather, featuring heating and covered areas, meaning you can go any time if the year. However food is a bit overpriced, so I'd skip it and just get the drinks instead

Food was disappointing - sea bass was salty and over cooked and not a generous/succulent portion.

Staff were inattentive even though it wasn’t busy.

Outdoor drinking section of rooftop is much prettier than the dining glass covered part.

I’d come back but only for drinks in the outdoor part which looks beautiful.

Had the deluxe fruits de mer platter for two. Overall good value at £20 a head. One of the shrimps was wildly overcooked and there was sand in a lot of the mussels and clams so could have used a bit more attention to detail. The house Pimm's was good, the passionfruit was a nice touch. Service was a little slow but its a great place to eat rain or shine!

Came here a year ago and despite the hefty price for food that is pleasant but not particularly memorable, I didn’t mind too much as the view is lovely and the service was okay.

However, I went this week on a Wednesday... had dinner, bottle of wine followed by a cocktail (which would have been further drinks, had the service been better) and my friend and I literally felt like asking for a drink was a burden. The service was terrible... food was average and very pricey. In the end we decided to head off to another spot for further cocktails. Such a shame as such a great spot. Doubtful that I’ll go back now.

In the past this was a brilliant location and a hidden gem. It has changed management and is now awful. Manager was rude and everything that was good about it has now made it unpleasant. It used to be a restaurant with attached bar, it is now clear they are more interested in bar customers than they are their restaurant customers.
