We were early for our table which wasn’t a problem. Drinks order was taken promptly. Food was fantastic worth the money, service was great Jimmy was a great waiter.

We were on a middle table might have been better in a booth. Lighting not the best.

Overall we all had a fantastic time.

For my mums 82nd birthday went to rooftop gardens. It was a little noisy as we sat next to a hen party, however staff were excellent, food was excellent and value was excellent considering what we ate.

Will definitely go back again.

Food quality and choice was okay but it's overpriced. Norwich is blessed with lots of good restaurants which offer better quality food at more competitive prices (for example Benji's). Food is more akin to a chain such as Ask Italian and dearer.

Fantastic food and great service, even when boooking the table and asking if we could bring a cake for a birthday. We were made to feel very welcome and didn’t wait too long between courses
Very friendly attentive staff and great food

Nice setting with friendly service, but food was poor and not at all value for money, £60 for a mid range bottle of wine and 2 very average main courses. On a plus, good cocktails. Go for drinks again but wouldn’t eat.

Both main courses (ribs and lamb) were cold and returned to kitchen, only the main meals taken back into kitchen.
Second time around the ribs were so tough that we had to leave over half of them and the mushroom was stone cold, although the chips were replaced the onion ring sides were left unchanged.
I must say that the lamb was tasty though.
The manager did talk to us and apologise for the food and offered a free choice of desserts.
After the issue with the second set of ribs the manager also removed this item from the bill.
Can’t really fault the service as it wasn’t the staffs fault and they did apologise for the poor food and glad to say that they didn’t hide away or ignore us.
A pleasant modern restaurant that we had heard such good things about that we were really looking forward to but very disappointed with the food, will have to think before going back.

A fantastic setting with a beautiful view of Norwich. Rooftop offers a unique dining experience within the city and should be applauded for taking the opportunity to bring something new to the city. We opted for the Sunday roast which was fantastic and the service was outstanding. A very pleasant and friendly server who helped enhance the experience. Slightly more expensive than other Sunday roasts but worth the extra few pounds for the setting! Make the most of the outside seating which offers heaters and blankets to combat any chill on the day!

Went there with my partner for Sunday roast.
We were greeted by staff and showed to our table .
The service was perfect, our waiter was very attentive and professional. Food was delicious, the size of the portion was much bigger than we expected. We were full, but gave a try to a dessert- cappucino creme brule, and wasn't dissapointed. Oh, and you make the best ginger mohitos😍 Hope to visit soon again

Brilliant service and amazing food (particularly the sirloin and lamb).
Original table we were sat at was very noisy as next to two party tables, which as a table of 2 was a very loud. However we asked to move and were seated in a much better area with great service.
Only slight negatives were it was slightly cold in the restaurant and the blondie brownie was very disappointing.
We will definitely be back and have already recommended this restaurant to friends and family, as overall it was a great evening with lovely food.

Steak was cooked wrong (would of thought on a grill menu they could cook it properly) waiter didn’t write down the order so I assume it was his fault as both steaks were cooked wrong and sides on the wrong plates. Very average at best.

A unique venue due to its city views, delicious food and extremely helpful/attentive waiter. A noisy as we were sat at a table for two but it was next to a table for about 20 people so it lost its intimacy. Overall a pleasant experience
