The worse meal ever. We sat in the bar for their lunch menu. Order the burger. Once it arrived it was dry and tough. I could barely cut the burger. It was a rock solid meat patty. We told the waiting staff who took it away and came back to offer an alternative which was chicken salad. Sadly the chicken was so heavily deep fried the day before that it had lost its moisture. My friend left most of her meal on the plate. When asked we gave the feedback which was promptly ignored. There was no offer to adjust the bill nor make any amends.
Don’t waste your time or money.
The view is superb but food in the bar rubbish with poor service
Jason Atherton needs to pay more attention.

Gorgeous view, good value for money lunch deal, that leaves you content. Nobody trying to oversell, friendly and professional. Ambiance warm and welcoming. Never had my starter as quick on the table, even though the complimentary bread/butter arrived afterwards to bridge the time until main course was ready, this switching of "courses" did not bother me at all, being on my own. Will go back for sure.

Awful service. Took 30 minutes after we ordered to get our drinks to our table and it wasn’t a busy night, we then stayed for an hour and 15 minutes and not one person came to offer us another drink or even take away our old glasses.

Excellent all-round experience. The staff were very attentive and friendly, and the quality of the cocktails was excellent. The views of London and overall ambience of the establishment is outstanding. The food is also very good, but it would be nice to have a few more choices for the mains. Having said that, this is a bar so I guess my last point is very subjective.

We had a spot reserved at the bar on a Monday. It was pretty quiet, we sat by the window looking out over amazing views. I ordered 2 cocktails and didn’t like either of them, nothing wrong with them just not to my taste. We ordered 3 bar snacks, all were greasy. We ate less than a third of the food. I really think they could offer more healthy snack/small plates. I was really disappointed with the food.
The service was amazing and the cocktails were presented beautifully.
Would I come back, yes. But I’d choose different drinks and avoid the food.
It really is a beaut looking bar.

Service was slow and lacking focus. Had to ask three times for some mayonnaise to accompany our chips, much needed as they were grossly over salted. Staff are friendly but forgetful even though it wasn't busy. Food was generally good as were the drinks. Have been many times but thing shave gone downhill. Shame that the ladies toilets have been moved and no longer have a view. Equally a shame that the one I used had no hook on the back of the door so my handbag had to go on the floor or be balanced on my lap. A simple oversight that would cost less than a fiver to fix.

Excellent drinks and service at the bar area
Lovely view and classy place
Only development point was that music was slightly too loud considering speaker directly over each table
Would fully recommend to cosy couples or groups of colleagues or friends for a sophisticated drink

It was a nice spot for an early evening cocktail and start to the night. The service was good but the waitress talked to us a lot and so we spent half of our time at the restaurant talking to her and not having the catch up we wanted. The bar snacks were interesting and the cocktails were very tasty.

Still enjoyable for a great view and a quick business lunch, we were badly let down by service, but hopefully just a one-off and the offer of two complementary dishes and drinks was a welcome gesture.

A nice venue to go with it you want cocktails and views for a special occasion. considering the general cost of London cocktails I felt the prices at social 24 to be of good value compared to other prices i have seen. Service was very friendly and with good humour and it is a place I would return to.
I was particularly impressed with the waiter kindly replacing a cocktail for me for free when i disliked my original choice and also the nice surprise of a birthday cake :)

It would be the perfect place to have the perfect vodka martini if the music wasn't QUITE so loud.
The staff / bar staff are superb and we will only attend this bar when in London. Please do not change the quality of the drinks, bar snacks and level of service, it's fantastic!

Amazing view & nice drinks BUT poor service! We were seated at our table by the lady on the door but left without any drinks menus to look at. The bar wasn't too packed but all the waiters were running around which wasn't very professional! Took ages to finally catch someone's attention to first get the menu and then order our drinks. The cocktail menu itself is quite small but we asked for a drink that wasn't on the menu, which was no problem. When the drinks finally did arrive, they were very tasty. Even though the service was poor, they still added the 12.5% service charge onto the bill which we said we wouldn't pay - don't think they liked that!
Would come back again but only for the view!!!

Staff were ABSOLUTELY FAB! Went out of their way and bent the rules to accommodate and cater for me and my booked guests at the bar booth last Friday evening, the food was SHOCKINGLY AMAZING! I thought I was in a 5 star restaurant in Chelsea or Kensington. Ambiance was great, Decor was great, Drinks were great. We’ll be back.

Our first drinks order was forgotten about...when we eventually got our drinks, it was about 25 minutes later. Our snacks also took about 45 minutes to arrive and by then, one person had to leave. The only good thing is the view as the service / overall expense leaves you with a very bitter taste in your mouth.

I thought i had made a reservation at the restaurant but found out i didnt upon arrival. The staff saw my disapointment and find us a nice table by the window. They then brought the menu of the restaurant abd allowed us to order from it. It turned out even better ! The team was amazing, a special thanks to the itialian manager (didnt catch her name ..)It was a special evening as it was my boyfriend’s birthday. She made it even more special!
