very good for everything.
Très belle vue et la terrasse chauffée idéal pour un verre avant ou après le repas
We had booked but the restaurant didn't offer us a sensible table and we had to insist on a decent table. There was no cloakroom and the restaurant seemed puzzled that we didn't want to put our coats on the back of our chairs.
The service otherwise was fine but the food was below par.
Afternoon tea - a lovely selection of well presented, delicious sandwiches, scones & cakes. We enjoyed every bite, but couldn’t finish it all!
Limited tea selection - just regular supermarket tea in in tea bags, only one scone each, sandiches got stale very quickly
Zero atmosphere, did not feel like a luxurious place
Not worth the price
Staff were very good though
Disappointed. We had multiple waitress taking our order and waited 25 minutes for our drinks. The apps came out before the drinks. Then waited again for a while to put in our mains which came out incorrectly. It was just very disorganized and bit chaotic.
Ordered drinks first and then ordered our food about 20 mins later, the drinks arrived after our starter did. Not great, we asked for tap water and a ash tray as we were sat outside and neither arrived we had to ask again. The food was presented nicely and tasted flavorful but the view of the tower bridge and sitting outside was the best bit
The service we experienced at Vicinty was terrible all round - being a sunny friday evening the outside areas were very busy, with people having drinks. When we arrived we waited outside to be seated as (was noted on a sign at the entrance). We were stood there for a good 10mins trying to catch the attention of staff, before we were told dinner reservations should go inside to be served. Once inside we requested to be sat near the open French doors, which we were told was not a problem. We sat down burger was a bit disappointing - a tad dry, not enough sauce which was in fact the best part of the burger. Fries were good. My girlfriend has the salmon Bao buns and the rocket & parmesan salad - she rated the bao buns highly, however the salad was quite watery at the bottom. Drinks were good & there seemed to be a good variety of drinks & cocktails.
All in all, a very disappointing experience which led to us nearly missing a reservation we had booked following the meal. The restaurant was not busy at all & the food failed to make up for the lack of service.
