Very good food as always and great view from our table by the window looking out onto the Thames. Set lunch menu with glass of wine had plenty of choice and was good value.
The pre-theatre menu is good value especially with the wine pairing. The bar cocktails were excellent. Service was very prompt and high quality. Superb views over the Thames at night.
Really unhappy with the food, the fish pie wasn’t fresh and was very salty. It didn’t really have any flavour. I wouldn’t return because I was so disappointed in the quality of food
very enjoyable meal, nicely served and great view.
Pre/post theatre good place to be on South Bank
Great restaurant, only issue is that the kids menu is not that child friendly for younger kids
My girlfriend’s mum’s birthday.
Good value and attentive service. Menu and food great.
Our cocktail order got lost and we had to wait over 40min for a gin and tonic and a peach cobbler. Other than that is was a lovely meal and good service.
La brutta esperienza inizia all’ingresso con l’odore di pesce marcio. Successivamente, dopo esserci seduto al tavolo si presenta un cameriere scortese e maleducato. I piatti sono semplicemente terribili e ad un prezzo esorbitante sia per la qualità che per la quantità del cibo. Cena conclusa con i peggiori dessert che abbia mai mangiato, una mousse che pareva preparata con i preparati del supermercato. Esperienza orribile
Delicious food and friendly staff but service was a little slow.
Lovely place to catch up with friends - food better than I remembered from last time!
went for a work Xmas dinner - a special 3 course offer. The food was tasty, service efficient and we were lucky to get a table by the window. A nice setting and good value with the offer.
The sommelier was a bit intrusive, that was quite negative but everything else was perfect and the service was brilliant :)
Good brunch - watch the service charge
A good place to go for brunch on a Sunday especially with the bottomless prosecco / burgundy - the portions could be a little larger and I always resent paying 15% when I am sat a bar for someone to pour me a beer !!
DUE TO THE POSITION OF THE BAR AND THE GRILL RESTAURANT, THE SKYLON CAN BE VERY NOISY. IT IS ALSO QUITE DARK.
Restaurant service and food was excellent. Bar service was poor...could do with more smiles and attention although the cocktails were very good.
It is always lovely going to Skylon. It is my tenth time there and the view, ambience and the space is excellent. The current manager, Ricardo Mimoso, is doing a great job making the necessary adjustments to keep a restaurant like Skylon continue to shine amidst the newer restaurants around London. Well done and keep up the good work
Nice meal for a Christmas get together. Food was pleasant, but very noisy as two large groups were having Christmas parties in the bar area. We actually had a very good table at the window, so we’re very happy with that. Service was mixed, sommelier and lady who I think may have been maitre’d were excellent with a great wine recommendation but the other waiting staff weren’t as attentive.
Good view, good food and excellent service.
First time in this place and I really like it! The service was excellent, food was delicious, wine was great ! , a little bit small table and not enough space between other table, but that place it’s just not big enough - shame. For sure will be back. Regards
Tricky during party season as it was very noisy and busy. Food was very good although quite a limited menu to be fare. I would go again though.
Just ok not bad but certainly not one to rush back to
Had a table by the windows - good friendly service, good menu for brunch/ lunch and great views. Will go back.
Nice atmosphere and views. The food is good in the set menu. A nice evening in this London landmark.
We had the special 3 course menu which had a reasonable choice of options.
Were not keen on the fizzy white wines which are standard with the meal, and when asked they swapped for the house red, which was of acceptable quality. Although the meals are small, after 3 courses we were quite full up .... probably smaller stomachs with old age.
This is an irregular regular visit of ours as basically we have been many times, but we don't come often.
The service was a little bit slow this time, but there were some large groups that had descended for Xmas parties or something, so it was to be expected. Another enjoyable meal at the Skylon.
I've been to Skylon on a number of occasions over the last few years but I felt rather disappointed this time. The portions seem to have got smaller, the food a bit blander and the service a bit more offhand. The apple and berry crumble made up for it though, and it is very convenient if you are attending anything at the Southbank, but I would once have recommended it as a destination its in own right and I'm not sure I would now.
We were so well looked after, we were celebrating my mums birthday and we were given a fabulous table by the window with a special birthday dessert with a candle. A wonderful evening, thank you.
A lovely restaurant and dinning experience.
The only slight criticism was that I did not like how I was told that the steak could not be cooked to my liking. Other steak houses and grills both independent and chain would accept my request. All other staff that assisted in serving us were knowledgable and the service was excellent.
Our first visit to Skylon and we were suitably impressed with the river views, some excellent food and very pleasant staff.
I would only recommend coming here for the set menu and do the pairing for a good value, especially if you're coming from post-theatre at the NT.
The service is just fair, I would say it's quite slow and lacks personality. We came in two evenings in a row but they vaguely remembered us which was quite disappointing. We also were celebrating a birthday but that was never acknowledged even though it was listed on the reservation.
The service is very slow but the food comes out quite quickly. And to be fair, the food is good and can't complain about that portion of the evening.
Great food and great value for money (especially the pre-theatre menu with the cheapest wine pairing I’ve ever known). But we were sat far away from the river view informs of the entrance, and service was a little slow. However, all staff were lovely!
Excellent food; amazing wines. A real treat.
Booking through OpenTable entitled us to a free glass of fizz each when dining from the pre-theatre menu at lunch. Service was efficient; food full of flavour. Staff also noticed and acknowledged a special occasion without being asked which was a fantastic touch.
I've dined at Skylon before and think that lunch may be better than dinner (except maybe in June/early July). In the evening there's too much glare and reflection off the windows to appreciate the view, whereas in daylight you can see clearly and the room is bathed in natural light which does it justice. It's a fantastic space.
As we had overseas visitors we wanted a table with a view - Skylon did not disappoint. The staff were lovely and attentive, service and food excellent. Thank you
Great restaurant with wonderful food and service in a trendy, modern atmosphere.
Enjoyed dinner for four on Saturday. Superb choice on the set menu, easily satisfying our vegetarian guest as well. Very nice wines in the pairings selection. Excellent service. Always a stupendous view. We have found this restaurant to be reliably good. Highly recommend.
On the website the place looks very elegant, quiet and classy. In real life, it was very contemporary, loud and definitely not for a quiet dinner. Misleading.
Setting was perfect and service excellent but the pre-theatre menu a little disappointing and lacking flavour. Dessert was the best bit!
The food and service were exceptional - special mention to our waiter Nicholas! For such a prime location, the whole experience was one of being a truly valued customer, and the fact that the food was so good just completed a wonderful lunch. Thoroughly recommended
Service appalling, had to ask for everything twice/ thrice.
Desert delayed and we had to leave as had tickets to a show. They did knock price of desert off bill but all in all didn’t make for a relaxing meal.
