It had a wonderfull view, and the staff was very nice. The food is good to. The only downside for us was that we had to wait a hour for our food. We didnt like that, the tables are reservated for 2 hours, and that way we had to hurry with our main course and dessert.

We were really looking forward to our visit and the service was terrible, we waited ages to order a drink. We ordered two cocktails and a bottle of champagne. The champagne arrived first so we asked the waiter to not open it as wanted our cocktails first. We ordered some nibbles and olives while we were waiting for the food and after waiting ages the meals and nibbles all turned up together. I ordered a cheese board and got two tiny pieces of bread so asked for more which again took ages and it turned up with pieces of plastic film on it. I pointed this out to the waiter and he just shrugged! We then didn’t see anyone again and had to pour our own champagne and couldn’t order another drink as couldn’t find anyone. We spent over £250 on food and drink and it was average. We even had a 12.5% service charge added for non existent service. Despite being residents and still drinking our champagne the door staff asked us to leave on the dot of midnight and we had to take it with us as they kept hassling us. Really poor experience and staff were not welcoming or attentive especially for the prices charged and star rating. I must say the front of house staff were excellent and really helpful and refunded the service charge the next day. I had been looking forward to visiting the rooftop bar and restaurant and it was really disappointing and expensive for such average food and poor service.

Poor service and food quality was at best average of not poor. Over cooked fish and tables not cleared for all the courses on a timely basis. To save ourselves from the misery we simply did not order coffee or dessert.

The Radio Rooftop bar is undergoing renovations at this time and the outside balcony area with the fabulous views is being covered in which seems like a real shame as I used to think of this place as one of teh best rooftop bar/restaurants in London. The food was really good, but lunch was spoilt by the ongoing works - not great at the moment, wouldn't recommend at least until the work is done.

We went in December and we were outside but there were heaters and a roof so we got the best of views and didn't freeze. Service was quick and of good quality. Went for the afternoon tea and every item was fabulous. The creme brulee in particular was fabulous. It was pricy but that was the deal it's a rooftop ambient and hip bar in central London. Well worth a special surprise. I thought serving tea with the price would have been nice for what we paid per head though. Go if you are looking for somewhere special it fit the bill for me.

Had a lovely time for Sunday brunch for four. 2/12/2018 sat outside and the garden haters proved ample warm enough.
Food was nice enough and the only reason for not providing a higher star rating purely being that the food is a little on the pricey side.

I booked a table for my partners 50th celebrations pre drinks before the theatre , I was VERY disappointed indeed ! We were first shown to a table outside that was basically on top of the next table/and the planter .
We were then shown to a high table near reception which was much better . We were then left for 10 mins to decide which drinks we would like .. my first gin drink wasn’t available so I chose again , we were then left 25 mins without a drink ! We were approached three times to see if we wanted a drink where we told them we are still waiting for them to arrive !
They did eventually come and the main guy did say they were on the house but this whole experience was very disappointing indeed and I would say had put me off coming again !
We booked the table for two hrs but sadly we only had time two drinks and the second was very rushed indeed because we had waited that long and had theatre times to stick too .

I went there for my anniversary. The staff treatment was outstanding, they take good care of you as soon as you walk through the door on the ground floor. We were served by a Spanish waitress and she was really good all the time. Food was on the table in around 10 min. There were a few vegetarian choices which were amazing taste. The place itself looks very smart, the views are great. You can see the river Thames from one side. They have blankets in the terrace for cold days. And there is music but not very loud so you can talk.

Great location. Friendly staff but service needs to be slicker. Note to management : you could increase your turnover by 30% by speeding up service. We waited 20mins for drinks and then didn't have time for dessert. In 2.5hr lunch we only had one drink and main course. We were prepared to have 2 or 3 drinks and a dessert if the service had been prompt.

I have been wanting to check out this place for a while and it did not disappoint... damn shame that it was freezing though! Oh well, it is November in London. I had read all the bad reviews and customer service seemed to be the main issue with this place, but I have to say we had EXCELLENT customer service last night! The views did not disappoint. The drinks and food, as mentioned numerous times, is overpriced. The food was tasty and satisfying. The cocktails are original and delish. They should really look at what they charge for a glass of wine (175 ml) though. C'mon guys! Seriously? It's a touch pretentious, so really good for people watching. They also had a DJ last night, which also added to the ambiance. Overall, there were no complaints from our table. I would definitely go again(when it is warmer). Definitely check it out for yourself... maybe after payday. :-)
