I found the overall experience absolutely amazing. The food was of high quality and the staff were absolutely the best. It was my first date and it made me feel welcome and I would defiantly go there again. I would have liked the tomahawk steak to share but they didn't have it in which is understandable as they had sold out but I will be back for the tomahawk steak at a later date

A unique restaurant in Norwich, all about the location. It was larger than I was expecting. Views across the city and jungle plant wall with water feature.. The service was very good - attentive waiters. Lively atmosphere - pre clubbers - lots of high heels in evidence. Food of a good standard - not quite top notch fine dining, we attempted to have 'tapas' with their starter menu but the huge plates the food was served on made this a bit challenging - in terms of physical space on our table for two! I think it would also be good for lunch because of the views and have a different feel in the daytime. Had a grown up vibe and the indoor part had industrial decor with feature lamps. We would go back again.

Unfortunately we were late, as we met up with friends, and didnt sit down until 9pm.
The service and most of the food was very good but the sea bass was very well done.
We will definitely come back but won’t eat as late as this time.

This was my second visit to RTG and I was not disappointed. The staff were courteous, knowledgeable about the menu and friendly. I visited with special old friends who were down from Manchester and visiting Norwich for the first time and they were very impressed. I would not hesitate to dine here again. thank you.

We enjoyed our dinner but it was hampered by the singer. I wish her well in her career but the amplifier was too loud, the music did not add to the ambience and conversation became impossible while she was singing

Food is great. However disappointed that we had to sit inside when we’d booked an outside table many weeks before hand. The whole point in a roof top gardens is that you actually want to sit outside.

Lovely anniversary meal, a little more pricey than your usual restaurant but so worth it! Food was amazing....outdoor dining was lovely, and a blanket provided for your legs!
All in all a lovely night out for our 15th Wedding Anniversary.

We had calamari for starter which unfortunately was over cooked & under seasoned (pretty unpleasant to eat).
However both the main & desert were fantastic , beef cooked to perfection, tender & flavoursome then the blondies & brownies amazing!!

Oh rooftop You could do so much more! Ever been to STK? Maybe you should visit!!!! .. it’s a nice place and I will visit rooftop again but it’s just ok.. my steak was average served with no steak knife .. so I had to get my own as the service was pretty poor. I went and got my own ketchup too! £32 for a steak is fine if it’s good quality and cooked well it was a cheap steak for sure. soup was lovely can’t fault that, dessert was no different to a tescos brownie. You have a little gem of a location improve your food quality and service. And them toilets give them a clean even if they are shared with the mortgage advisors!!

Very smart restaurant with lovely seating areas, many with round tables in booths which is great for groups. Good value for money. Lovely menu with mostly perfectly cooked food. Nicely presented. Lovely cutlery, glasses and good thick linen napkins! Attentive waiters. 5 of us ate here and had 3 courses all of which were very good quality and tasty except I ordered White Chocolate Blondie which was just like a lump of cake you'd expect in a builder's lunch box (sorry Chef!) rather than the restaurant's usual high quality and refined food. Puddings are normally very good here though. We would all definitely go here again.

My wife had rack of lamb with vanilla mash, unfortunately the mash was cold and although the waiter took the food back to the kitchen to be re-plated on returning the mash was just warm but because I was now already half way through my main course we accepted the dish. My main was 3 different sliders which was OK but it would have enhanced the meal if each different slider was identified and if each had a specific garnish

When i booked my table i was asked if it was for a special occasiin, i ticked yes a birthday party & then i was asked any special requests, i ticked yes please could you put a candle/sparkler on our daughters dessert as it was her b/day.
This was not done, so what was the point in these questions ?

Mid week and the restaurant was fairly quiet, a few tables outside given the lovely weather but not as many as expected but meant peaceful dinner celebrating a birthday.
Waitress was very friendly and polite.
Food was lovely but a slight disappointment with 1 main that was cold, I did send it back and they rectified the matter and apologised but by the time I had my main the rest of the table had finished so that was a slight disappointment.
Overall the meal was lovely and will return.
