We were recommended to you by a friend. Service was excellent. Kyle was very patient and accommodating with our orders. Weather was atrocious so didn't get to enjoy the outside however the booth was really comfortable and the view interesting. Husbands birthday so had a lovely surprise! Thank you for an altogether enjoyable dining experience. Will come again for special occasions.

Great location but no dress code is adhered to it seems lots of kids in white trainers. Also food quite bland and steaks not good quality altho very large. Service and staff was good but would have liked to be asked if I wanted to be seated outside or in as I took it that first time there I would be on a roof top and I wasn't put there it was indoor. Took our meals off the bill so thanks for that. We may try once more to eat there one day

Service was excellent with a very attentive waiter. In fact all staff were very pleasant. Our food was ok but didn’t really have any wow factor. Our appetiser of bread and caramelised onion humus was very nice but our mains were a little ordinary. Cocktails were nice and well presented. All in all a pleasant experience

Beautiful venue, especially as we had a hot, sunny day, food was delicious although not a very varied menu, ambience was fab, service great only thing I would say I’d drinks are very expensive, but again cocktails were lush, Prosecco not so good. All in all we did have a great afternoon, well worth a visit

Lovely evening, nice food, wine was good, and fab views of Norwich. On arrival bar man recommended a different cocktail to one I wanted and I was disappointed! My only other grumble was the toilets, not on the same floor and queue for ladies with only 2 working!

Would be good to have the option.

We were offered a choice of two tables because of the sun coming through the window. This was our first visit for food and it was for an anniversary meal. We were presented with a glass of complimentary Prosecco by "Kyle" . Great service, food was lovely, and great range of drinks on the menu.

We sat outside on the roof terrace afterwards. A lovely evening. Would definitely visit again.

This was my second visit, the first being for my “special” birthday in January....and I most certainly wasn’t disappointed. I brought my friend who lives in Canada and both Michelle and I absolutely loved it! Great window seat so we could see the Cathedral; the Castle and the lovely area of Mousehold Heath.
The service was quite simply superb. Our waitress was smiley, friendly, super efficient and couldn’t have been more helpful. Drinks were amazing! Michelle had a peach cocktail and I had a mocktail! Both were superb! We chose the sharing fish platter for our main course and it was simply delicious! We took our time and savoured it all, finishing with a super cup of coffee each. The restaurant gradually filled up but the atmosphere just got even better!
Michelle and I loved our time there and will most definitely be back. Thank you to everyone there. Lyn.

5 of us celebrated a birthday with an early dinner one Sunday. Most of us chose a burger, everyone enjoyed the food. It’s a great location. Ambience is, of course influenced by other diners. The service was exceptional

We met up with friends for Sunday lunch we all had the roast. Couldn’t fault it, nice and hot, plenty of flavour and two plates of extra veg didn’t expect that. Drinks are quite pricey but the overall experience was lovely. Would like to try an evening meal to experience the city lights by night.

Most of us thought our food was good, but one found his vegetarian choice was bland and partly undercooked (he received some recompense from management). The noise made by other people was deafening at times, making it difficult to make ourselves heard.

My first experience at Rooftop Garden Restaurant. It was a celebration meal for our son's 21st. We are not familiar with Norwich, but this restaurant was recommended by a friend who knows the area. The environment was lovely and also relaxing. Food was delicious and service superb. As a smoker I was pleased there was a comfortable area to smoke in. The garden is a lovely open space and I was particularly impressed with the living wall, and slso that heaters and blankets were available for those who needed them. I should imagine this is particularly busy in the summer. A* all round is my verdict.

My table was booked for 20:45 once we sat down at our table we where told we had five minutes to order our food not acceptable very rude. We then ordered and the food that came out was awful my sisters duck was so over cooked it was like leather, my dish was thrown together no seasoning or flavour to it at all. I spoke to the manager who did not seem to care at all. The waiter was very apologetic and good at his job.

We were looking forward to eating here but we found it very average. The staff were the best part of the night. The portions were so so. Ours were what you’d expect but our friends was huge. We found it very loud, the music was at a level you’d find in a bar and we found it difficult to talk above the general ambience. It was top end prices too. I would return for a drink but won’t be returning to eat again.

Went Tuesday lunch time. Nearly all the other diners were men . Waitress was cheerful and happy. Food was a sharing platter , there was enough for lunch. The view is what it is. Good view of the cathedral
Large space outside for dining and drinking. The living back wall looked a little tired .
Overall a good experience
