Unfortunately the evening we visited there was a problem in the kitchen so limited hot food. Received a phone call to warn us and as it was such a hot day we were not concerned and looked forward to our meal. The food we chose was very pleasant but choice was restricted and was mainly vegetarian options, particularly the main courses. Portions on the small size and generally we felt was overpriced considering the limited choice. Would visit again as clearly very high quality food and keen to see what else is on offer.
Great menu choices. The wine pairing with the Pre-theatre Dinner menu were great wine recommendations by the Sommelier. A little pricey for the quantity of food.
It was a bit noisy but the views were great as was the food and service.
Booked for a work evening meal. Enjoyed the food and the service. Would recommend this restaurant
Wonderful view, great food, wine and service. Only downside is that is a rather noisy environment and can be difficult to keep up a conversation as a result.
Enjoyed a marvellous brunch at Skylon with friends. We went for the bottomless prosecco option which was great value as they were very generous with the time-slot! The food was also excellent and the service really good, so all in all a very good brunch!
We booked the open table deal which was good value.
Excellent accommodating staff with great knowledge regarding options for food allergies
The risotto was over cooked and not good
7 of us went to Skylon post matinee theatre. Service at bar was a little slow but was very good for dinner. We had a set menu and wine pairing. All pretty delightful.
Excellent spot in terms of the buzz and bustle and views of the Thames and nightlife. Great location for dinner or lunch close to Waterloo
The restaurant is in a great location, is well decorated and had a lovely view. However, as it is completely open and so large, it’s very noisy and hard to have a conversation.
Some of the dishes were very good and the range of options on the vegetarian menu was very good. The only down side was that a lot of the food was over-salted (something we have noticed in the past) and vegetables in the risotto was delicious but it seemed like there was no cream/cheese added to it so it was a little bland and salty.
The staff seemed a little over stretched but they were very friendly and provided good service.
Great place for a special catch up with friends. Plenty of food options and the wine pairing made it extra special.
Upon arrival - table was not ready in the restaurant.
Waited an additional 25 mins - still was not ready.
Eventually seated us in the grill area in a table of our choice.
Food was lovely and good value for money.
Enjoyed a meal with friends here earlier in the month. It was a tad noisy on our visit and they were very busy so service was very slow. I wouldn’t say it was the best meal I have ever had but food looked and tasted good. We did the three course offer and had to remind them we were entitled to a glass of bubbles. The tables both sides of us both had issues with their meals/service. All in all for us it was ok.
The food was amazing. We were very pleased with the food but the service was quite subpar. We were without drinks for more than half our meal bc we finished the ones we ordered before our meal.
Food was creatively presented when it finally arrived. Not as warm as one would expect and one meal had to be returned. Staff attentive and discreet they did the venue proud.
This is a great restaurant The staff are really attentive and the food is very good We has a really lovely table overlooking the river and the tables are nicely spaced which makes a change for London
I ate in your reception with 2 friends on Monday this week on the £30 per person set menu deal with a glass of sparkling wine which I got an email confirmation for.
My friend who paid for the meal told me yesterday that on the bill you have charged her for 3x£10 starters and then 3x rest of the set menu (2 items) for £75 meaning she has paid £35 per person.
On the receipt we were on table 232 and the order nr was 291047.
We also did not get our glass of wine when we arrived which was disappointing.
Can you please advise how you can rectify this over payment.
Really wonderful food beautiful lily presented. Staff largely attentive, but felt embarrassed having to ask for the set menu rather than being offered it from the outset.
Another great Saturday brunch at Skylon before theatre matinee. Such good value given the usual cost of a bottle of prosecco. Staff are lovely, and food delicious. Would recommend, especially given the lovely view!
Awful service. Not through the fault of the serving staff as they were charming and excellent but that there were only two waiters for the night. Clearly the kitchen staff were also short as main courses took an hour and forty minutes to arrive and the quality was average at best. What a shame as it is in a prime location with a beautiful setting.
The special offer was good value, and the food was nice if not particularly memorable. Had to wait 15 minutes for our table, and there is not much space to wait at the bar. The waiters were very busy but service was very good despite this. Overall, a pleasant meal.
Skylon never disappoints from lunch to cocktails to dinner. An iconic location, with excellent food and service.
Went there pre-theatre and I can't speak highly enough about this restaurant, quality of food, service and ambience. Once again everything was perfect and we will be back!
Very pleasant experience for my wife and I on the occasion of our anniversary.Greeted by friendly, attentive staff and very touched with a small, but welcome treat at the end of our meal.Made us feel special, well done!
Had the special offer menu £30 for three courses plus wine pairings for an extra £15 all excellent the food was all very good and the wines complemented the food brilliantly
The restaurant was full but the service was very good
Will be back ! Lovely view for my guests from Bangkok who were very impressed
Lovely meal before the music. The fixed price was excellent value. We had a table by the window with stunning views. Service was excellent and overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Had to wait 45 minutes for someone to take our order.
Booked the 3 course lunch menu for £30 and added wine matching for £15 - excellent value! 4 choices for each course, all of which were appealing. Service was excellent, table overlooked the river on a sunny day, cocktails were also excellent. Best set menu I've had in a very long time.
Great service and great table
Excellent from start to finish!
I had never heard of Skylon but my girlfriend mentioned it as she’d dined there several years ago. There are 2 sections which merge into one - the grill and the more formal dining section where we dined. The tables are well presented with white clean tablecloths and clearly silver service standard. Our first male waiter (who may have been the maitre d’) was a little odd looking and very difficult to converse with as if he didn’t understand the English language. In fact, whilst speaking to him about ordering champagne, he walked away as if disinterested, which I found most discourteous and annoying. The female waitresses on the other hand were excellent and highly professional. Attentive but discrete service throughout. The food was very good as was the wine. The views from our window table overlooking South Bank and the Thames were beautiful and as the dusk came, the flickering lights outside were memorable. We will recommend Skylon to friends.
Very fast service so ideal for a pre- concert show dinner. Food okay, well presented.
The view was wonderful, as always, the food was very nice however the cost of the meal was extortionate. We only had a main course, water, no wine and a coffee and the bill was £50 per person.
The view at Skylon is lovely and it is a lovely place. The food was very good but it was pricy and I thought a bit overpriced. The service was very good and we were made to feel special. I would go back but I may wait for a special offer next time.
I came here for a bottomless brunch for my birthday with a friend, staff were so lovely & helpful. You didn't have to ask for a top up they were straight there ready to fill your glass and take your order. Food arrived promptly but we were never made to feel rushed, food was fresh & hot. My friend & I, did get quite drunk but they never made us feel unwelcome. Skylon has a wonderful light & spacious feel to the place & even thought the day we went it was quite grey & had been raining, it never felt dreary inside & the music was excellent - loud enough that you could appreciate what was being played but not so loud you couldn't have a comfortable conversation. Would recommend this place for groups of friends, families and even a date. Looking forward to visiting again.
Dinner was very well presented and worthy of a high end restaurant. The steak was the most tender but not the most flavoursome I’ve had. The macarons for desert were a little overcooked, so they were crispy not chewy, but not so much that it spoiled the experience.
Service cannot be faulted. We were looked after by a stream of waiting staff who couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly.
The main feature of the restaurant are it’s floor to ceiling windows overlooking the south bank and River Thames. We were lucky enough to get a window table, but it may be worth a call or mentioning when you book if it is important to you.
Overall, a little overpriced for what it is, but it is definitely worth a special occasion visit.
Skylon is great for business dinners, dates and meet-ups with friends. The food is wonderfully prepared and the staff really make it a great dining experience.
Really enjoyed our evening. Very good food and service; just a bit loud so sometimes hard to talk. Very good value from the set menu.
