Food not very hot.
Excellent and attentive service which was better this time than our previous experience. Food is good and they serve some nice wine and cocktails. We had a nicely located table with a view of the skyline either side of the restaurant. My only minor complain is that the acoustics with the roof closed make it very difficult to hear conversations due to the noise level. What would make it extra special on a Friday and Saturday night is live music.
Lovely venue. Attentive staff. Very tasty food. Cocktails lush.
Food and drinks were very expensive for what you get
Service great , ambiance lovely . Small portions on meals , drinks good .
Booked outside...given inside.
Crispy skinned salmon...limp skin
Paid for 'premium fries'..handcut...again limp and err..handcut?
Might! give it another chance..
Wonderful place, service great and lunch superb, just a great atmosphere
Amazing food and even better service
Really enjoyable evening. Amazing food, really tasty and good value.
It was my friends birthday and the service was excellent! We were served mainly by Niamh who was happy and friendly. Would’ve have liked a balloon or something on the table just for recognition of birthday, didn’t know if that was something we could request. Thank you for a lively afternoon.
The food was ok and plentiful but service was very very slow and the roof was over which seemed to take away from rooftop dining
Great food with very friendly efficient service. Professional in all ways. The setting was just perfect and clean and smart. Comfortable seating with ample space between tables. Would be happy to recommend this place to everyone
First time here, was pleasantly surprised. Food was nice. Service was perfect took to our table straight away within minute waitress asking us for drinks. Very efficient. Didn’t have to wait long for food to arrive. This place is just how a restaurant should be run, perfect.
First time out for dinner with my fiancé and 10 day old daughter, for my fiancés birthday, amazing time !
I booked a table for drinks outside. We waited ages for someone to come seat us, 2 staff wiping tables looking at us then looking at each other until one finally came. I explained we had a booking, she found my name then asked if we wanted to sit in or outside, weird as I specifically booked outside but whatever. She then called someone over to ask if she could sit us at some table…. Finally go outside, about to sit down when she says oh actually can I sit you over here so we moved. Waitress took our drink order and then asked if we were having food, we said no (again this was on my booking) so she said we had to move (again). The place was empty, they did not need the table but insisted we moved “so it’s easier for them to find us our drinks”. We move and when she brings our drinks, spills mine on me and my brand new dress in shopping bag under the table, apologised and asked if I wanted a napkin which never came! Then when another server came to ask us to pay, had the audacity to ask if I was willing to pay a service charge. I tried to explain why I was not happy to pay it and she cut me off to say she had only started her shift so it wasn’t her fault…. We used to go here often pre-Covid but will not be returning any time soon. The cocktails weren’t even nice and we used to love them here.
Service was absolutely terrible. We sat without anyone taking an order from us for 25 minutes and eventually when I managed to call someone over it took another 10 minutes for two drinks to arrive. I don't think 35 minutes from the time we arrived to have even a glass of water was acceptable. Took forever for our food to come as well and the restaurant wasn't even half full. We ended up just getting the one course and the food was lovely but the service ruined the day for us. Took only two minutes for the bill to come though! We did tell them the service was terrible but they didn't seem that bothered and said "there's people off with Covid". We said to the waitress maybe tell people that at the beginning so they're aware although I still don't think half an hour for a glass of wine and a cider is an acceptable time to wait! Wouldn't go again, wouldn't recommend. The attitude of the staff when we mentioned the delay in everything put us off. Luckily we live in London and not Norwich so no need for us to go again!
This was our first visit and we were impressed. There was a good choice of food and wine at a reasonable price. The room was spacious and airy and we felt very comfortable and safe. The roof was closed due to the powerful sun light on the day.The service was good and friendly. We will now use this venue regularly.
Revisiting after a former problem visit, had been given a £50 voucher to use. Two of us on a sunny Tuesday evening sat in the outside area, it was busy we had Seafood Linguine (£15) AVERAGE, Pan Seared Hake (£19) GOOD. Garlic bread OK, Orange Meringue Pie(£7.50) x 2 (POOR) consisted of a bought in small lemon tart onto which sickly cream had be sprayed, surrounded by three small tinned orange segments, seen better offerings in a Tesco meal deal. Had 2 x G&T's OK, a draught beer OK & a Flat White Martini cocktail OK but not to my taste.
Summary: Ambiance nothing special, food average to poor, atmosphere & staff good. Would not come here to eat, far better options available elsewhere.
Not as special as I hoped. Food was not good value. Sat outside as wanted to see the views but so noisy as the roof had cover over that found it hard to hear conversation around the table. Long wait for my food after the rest of the table served theirs as they forgot mine! Really surprised people rave about it as not worth anything close to the bill I paid.
Food was amazing, great outlook over Norwich. Staff were great. Highly recommend
Venue was different. Service was excellent. In my opinion the food was very disappointing.
Presentation was poor, mixing charcuterie with ribs, just didn’t seem right. We had the meat sharing platter and to honest the taste was extremely bland.
Nice setting with friendly attentive staff, food was ok bit pricey for what I call standard fair: had the Jamaican jerk burger and chips - jerk was hot (good point) but not very spicy (i make better!), could have done with a little (not much!) more fries.
I had 2 beer Moretti which were served promptly and cold.
Special thanks to Eden she was the waitress: was polite and smiley which is always well received.
Anniversary lunch. Staff friendly & professional. Everything brought out in a timely manner. Even brought cocktails off menu. Thoroughly recommend.
It was our first time at rooftop Gardens, and we sat in the sunshine outside. It was amazing. Felt like we was on holiday. The food was perfect. And our waitress was lovely she brought us out a free shot for my husbands birthday. We can not wait to come back very soon. We have told all our friends how lovely it was. We'll done. See you soon
Was nice just I think rated higher than I experienced
Our first visit to Rooftop Gardens but it won't won't our last. The food was incredible and the service was impeccable. Really surprised when our bill only came to £70 after a cocktail, a premium lager, 2 starters and 2 mains!
Slow but pleasant service few of the staff were wearing face madks
Had our first visit here yesterday for our daughters Birthday. Food very good. We had Hannah serve us, she was very professional and pleasant to talk to. A sparkler was put in my daughters dessert as it was her Birthday, lovely touch. Will definitely be returning.
Very please with the overall service of our meal, the lovely little gesture of prosseco as it was mine and my
Partner’s anniversary was a lovely
Touch! Thank you so much!
Staff were very polite and welcoming and food was good too :)
Very nice place to eat, puds especially good. Nice atmosphere
We had an outside table for two on a Sunday evening, the weather was hot and the location was great. We both had roast, lovely, and a mention for Danny our waiter who was everything a good waiter should be. Nice, we would certainly come again
Booked a table for our anniversary received a glass of bubbles 🍾
Food was lovely the place was lovely. Would definitely go again
Waitress went above & beyond for us!!
Highly recommend in Summer
Location and atmosphere ideal. Service was excellent and attentive, especially Hannah. Food was disappointing, we have eaten far better quality at same price. But I would recommend for a special night out.
Lovely setting , fantastic cocktails and great service.
Good ambiance - great food - fantastic service- it would be nicer if they could have more vegetarian options..
Superb venue on the hottest day of the year. Staff all very friendly x
Very good food and lovely cocktails. The loaded fries were massive!!
