Really lovely staff, brought out a complimentary dessert for a birthday celebration. Steak was amazing, and the chips are to die for! Will go again.

Service is amazing they have so many staff and all so friendly and helpful. Food is outstanding, really nice I couldn’t complain about anything. Great atmosphere as well, house music playing in the background at a good level, really good vibe. Will definitely be going back.

Because of the weather it was a bit of a shame that all of the roof and sides were up.

Food was good but small portions of the roast dinner for the price.

Have a great time, the food was very nice and good value. Service was good, the waiter was friendly, professional and very attentive. Drinks were slightly overpriced. But overall good experience would defiantly go back, ideally when the weather is nicer so can really enjoy the views.

Food wasn't great but if you are looking for great cocktails (albeit very overpriced) and a fantastic view this is the place to be.

Food was incredible. Our server Lorenzo was extremely attentive if we needed anything or if he saw out waters needed topping up, and left us in peace if he could see we were deep in conversation. It was the perfect blend. Incredible service!

This was a surprise for my daughters birthday. As my husband and I had previously been hotel guests this was a completely different experience. Once we could get attention for service which took ages the drinks were very good. The service however was awful with every round of drinks purchased the staff would try and remove the drinks before they were finished. We ordered a seafood platter it was appalling their was more roasted peppers on the plate than anything else, did we complain. No we didn’t it was Daughters birthday and she would have been embarrassed.
I don’t think we will be returning anytime soon even though we had planned to in 2 weeks time.

I have always enjoyed going to Radio, however yesterday's experience was disappointing. We were notified when we were seated that we would have a 1.5h time limit, which we had no problem with, however, we were only able to order 1 round of drinks the entire time. The wait staff seemed to avoid our table (maybe due to being positioned in a corner...?), and were difficult to flag down. When the bill came, they wanted us to pay very promptly, which my guests and I found annoying after being ignored for the entire reservation. The vibe has definitely changed post-lockdown - the view and venue itself are still great, but after this unfortunately I won't be back.

Staff not really that friendly and unprofessional in some aspects. Food average and over priced. Service poor. The tall host ladies energy was awful, shouldn’t be on the front desk. I had to ask 3 times to put a food order in and they weren’t even busy. Poor wine selection and again overpriced for the quality. The ambiance is rubbish if I’m honest

We had the seafood sharing platter which was good. We had a main afterwards too, but that was a bit too much food so in hind site maybe just the platter would have been sufficient

Not what I was expecting. Booked for x7 people for lunch at a sofa! Not sure you could eat what we had on a sofa. Empty & no atmosphere. Very overpriced at £360 for lunch and only 2 people having alcohol !

We attended on Sunday 12th June 2021. The atmosphere was buzzing, music was really good. However, the service was poor, too many customers to staff. Security guard was arrogant!! We waited 35 minutes for dessert, we waited this length of time for drinks too which resulted in us asking for the bill and leaving before dessert arrived. Oh and then being charged forthe dessert...Overall, the food was Very expensive for what it was, I would say that you’re paying for the venue as oppose to the food.

The service was terrible, we asked six times for water and ice, and it was a 28-degree day. Repeatedly has to ask for water top-ups. They took 25 minutes to ask for our first drink but then told us we needed to leave after 1.5 hours, at which point moved us to another table metres away (as there were so many free tables) and our original table was free for a while after, so that felt pointless. The end bill was quite expensive. Cocktails tasted nice and the rose was ok. Food tasted great but not great value / very expensive.

Slow service from unbothered staff, very expensive drinks (£18 for frozen rose and £19 for an aperol spritz). They sat us in the blistering heat and we had to ask to move twice before we got up ourselves and moved to a table in the shade.
Drinks arrived 20 minutes later with frozes made wrong which we had to ask the rude waiter to change.
£150 for average pre drinks. Do not waste your money.

Ps there was also no vibes and no music playing.

Radio is one of my all-time favourite spots and I probably go there about 10 times a year, so I know what to expect from it. While the service is never fantastic there, last night was particularly bad. Our waiter ignored us and when he did give us his attention he was arrogant and unhelpful. It took half an hour to get our first round of drinks too, which is ridiculous. The food was average - my steak was rare (not med-rare) and the béarnaise sauce was a pot of congealed orange custard (yuck!)
Not the great, happy return to one of my favourite haunts I was expecting

Great location. Friendly staff but the service was poor in that we had to chase for service on several occasions to get drinks or food. It is expensive but for an “experience” it’s probably worth the premium.

Our table was bookers for 1.300pm we got their at 1.15pm hoping to have a drink beforehand, we was takes to our table straight away , then they requests my credit card and took it and didn’t bring it back said they couldn’t serve me without it , that did not suit me at all! Then at 3.00 while is was still eating my desert the waiter came over andy said you have the vacate the table in 15 mins, I felt rushed the service was poor there was a minimum £50per person spend and this is not an all worth the money at all . This roof top bar was a average and 1 hour 30mins is not enough time when there is poor service, will not be coming back again or recommending this place to anyone else .

Waited 30 mins for a drink. Wanted to call him over to cancel, but he thought I was asking where our drinks were and rushed off to get them. Not worth the money. Don’t offer blankets either so bring a jacket in the evening.
