Had a amazing time. Food was excellent and the drinks were just as good. The views were second to none. Definitely going back.

We had a great waiter called Richard. He took care of us very well.

The food was good and my Davy was the prawns starter. My club sandwich without the bacon was good. The chicken was slightly dry. The chicken is halal.

The desserts were not very good which is a pity as the evening with the lovely views was very good.

AVOID. I've been here maybe 4 times in the last couple of weeks for breakfast. Meant to be a 5 star hotel but when my guest arrived he wasn't shown to the table, just given a vague wave in the general direction. Fortunately it wasn't busy so he found me - wonder why its not busy.
Key points:
1. They try to charge you twice for service. I fell for this the first time. Service at 12.5% on the bill then asks you to add a tip on the machine. I ended up paying 30% service. When I brought this up with the waiter he said the first 12.5% goes to kitchen staff, the second tip goes to the server. I don't care how the tip is distributed - please just don't con me to a 30% tip especially when the service is awful (see below)
2. I ordered a coffee and orange juice when I arrived, 15 minutes later still no sign. My guests (who arrived 5 mins after me) ordered and their tea arrived. Waiters never came near as they were far too busy laying the empty tables for non existent guests. When I chased 2 coffees arrived within 10 minutes.
3. I thought I'd chance my arm with a second coffee which, yes you guessed it.... never arrived! When the waiter came back - after 15 minutes he said "oh I forgot your coffee, I b think you forgot too". This is the first time I'd been blamed for forgetting my own order. I hadn't forgotten.
4. Tried again to get 30% tip for some of the worst service I've had in a long time

In short, overpriced, awful service but great view.

I often go to Radio when out in London as I like the busy atmosphere, music and quality of service. They are very controlled as well with the number of people they allow which is great so it's to busy and gives it some exclusivity.

However on this occasion I found the man in control of bookings very rude and dismissive. After we sat down I requested that if a table with sofas becomes available could we please move as we were intending on spending the rest of the evening there.

His response was "No you won't I have 300 bookings this evening you have a 1.5 hour slot then you must leave". I understand a bar like Radio needs to have a turnaround however I was never told that we would have slot that evening until I went and spoke with this gentleman. In the end we did end up staying there the rest of the evening because clearly the 300 other bookings just hadn't turned up.

Overall i recommend Radio however I was disappointed with the service from this employee given when spending over £400.

The food was awful, 3 dried octopus legs with baked beans, no taste, the worst club sandwich I’ve ever had. The beef sliders were ok!

Excellent place.. lovely views. Food is fresh & tasty. Charming Italian girl served us for a pre/dinner bite and a yummy cocktail, one of the House favourites. Her recommendations were spot on. My dad loved it too..

Lovely staff, great service.

There was a very loud table next to us playing tin music from their phones. I asked the hostess to speak to them, not wanting to cause a scene on a first date. She sorted the loud Essex table that lacked any class or appreciation for anyone else's privacy. We were moved to the other side of the restaurant and I got the second date! : )

Very organised staff and a beautiful decor with amazing drinks and great vibes.
Definitely worth going to all year round, as it has a large inside and outside section with heating and blankets if needed. Thank you for your service.

On a date, the place was empty, only about 6 couple. We were shown pass all the empty sofas and tables to a really poor table on a rat run, was not comfortable. The table equivalent of the Berlin wall (date suicide). After about 12 minutes of waiting to be served, the hostess walked another couple to the 18 seater corner sofa. Expecting to be served on her return, we was not. At this stage, I just wanted to go but my date offered to go to the bar, after about 4 minutes, I joined her. We waited another 3 or so minutes while the staff chatted between themselves, there was no one else waiting at the bar and the staff was not making another order. At this point, my date was fed up too. On the return, the couple that was sat near us, in desperateness started to try and order from us, lol. So we were not only ones confused by the complete lack of service.

Alas, we hailed a taxi and headed to OXO where we had a great night.

The service through out the whole meal was shocking. We went to the bar first to have drinks but only one person Serving. By the time we got our drinks we had to go and get our table. They seated us where there was no cutlery or glasses for dinner and no menu. We asked for menu’s and only gave us one. Sat us at a table suited for drinking not eating. We asked to move and was given abrupt answers. So we decided to move ourselves. We ordered our food but they forgot to bring out the sides. The lighting in the restaurant is too dark for eating. We all had the Ribeye steak and it was very fatty. They brought us over churros because they forgot the sides but by that point we was all disappointed. Went to celebrate a birthday which I told them about and no effort was made. Wouldn’t recommend or go back to.

Round the corner from work, but never clocked onto the great views and relaxed ambiance of this place. Tapas was very good - sharing plate ideal for a very light lunch for two, but we augmented with two extra dishes. Wines were a little pricey, but well-chosen as far as I could tell. (Well, our rosé was lovely). But the selling point is the sheltered terraces overlooking the city. Ideal for a light lunch especially with an out-of-towner

I had a wonderful time with my friends, however I would not go back for food only drinks. The food tastes stale and wasn’t good quality. Additionally there was a lack of communication between the staff which caused a discrepancy in our final bill however, the manager was empathetic and was quick to resolve and apologies. Overall I rated it a 3 star because the views are outstanding especially during sunset!

Will definitely not go back again. The photos were misleading. When we got there, we were quite disappointed by the plastic curtain and the roof, which affected the view quite a lot. The food was very mediocre and overpriced. I ordered a steak and the sauce came as cold. Staff was nice and friendly though. Spent £150 for three of us.

This is a fantastic place; the views are spectacular, the restaurant is well designed and the staff are extremely helpful - I would recommend highly it. The only downside was the music, which was a little too loud and made conversation difficult.

We had lunch on New years Day so it was not busy and the staff were pleasant but annoying. I can't put my finger on it but we just felt a bit uncomfortable. Not a fan of having plates cleared when others at the table are still eating, Little things like that....
Food was ok but a bit average. An Okay experience but thats all....

Service was terrible, especially with only a quarter of the tables filled and a large staff on the floor. Extremely overpriced. The view up there is neat but you can get better views else where

The place was ok but there was no view as they have plastic screens - see through but very distorted - wasn’t worth the extra for expensive cocktails that would have been 2 thirds in a normal bar.
In summer on a sunny day with everything open I bet it’s really a great place - in the winter don’t bother....

Made to wait at check in for @10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. Waited another 5 before shown to table which was prebooked. Was asked if our coats could be taken, told we should have checked them downstairs. There was nobody downstairs to have done do. Service non particularly attentive. Overall mediocre experience
