We brought friends down from the Midlands to have a chilled evening at Radio Rooftop with its great views & cool atmosphere. Nothing wrong with the atmosphere or the views but the service was appalling! Took 30 mins to order, nearly an hour to our first drink & 2 hours to get our food, which came cold & congealed. The waiter, to be fair, kept giving us complimentary drinks & in the end didn’t charge for the good, but it wasn’t good enough for such a prestige venue.

I thought the food was lovely but a shame they were sharing plates. Not enough food for the price. A proper menu alongside the "bar" menu would be a good option.

We booked online which was really easy and were kept up to date until the booking. Once we arrived we were reminded that our table was only for 1 and a half hours. We ordered drinks expecting our order for food to be taken, the drinks arrived about quarter of an hour later. Almost an hour into our booking we had to call a waiter over to take our food order, he then got someone else to talk to us about extending our booking. By this time, we were a bit annoyed not only had they not took a food order, but we had only been served one drink. We refused to extend our time there and the food came quite quickly after that. The food was lovely, although not a meal do not go for food if you are hungry, probably more of a drinking place (if you can get served!). You must also spend £50 per person, which would have proved difficult if we had only been drinking as the service was so slow. It was an experience but one I will not be repeating.

I had a booking for 7.15pm and the hostess said I had the table for 90mins, after the 90mins was over and spending £95 per person the manager told us too leave and gave no explanation. I was told before hand via a telephone conversation that after my 90mins on the table was up me and the rest of my party would have access too the bar but apparently this wasn’t the case. The manager told me to check my email and said that this was the terms and conditions and I did and after contesting this we was literally thrown out by bouncers. No such thing was said in my booking confirmation and if you have been here before and booked via opentable you would know this. Furthermore the food and service was diabolical too add insult too injury. I will never advise anyone too attend this shambles of a venue nor would I ever return. I’m seriously considering legal action after the way I was treated

Not particularly happy about a servant. The table location was next to waiter's stand. We were not allowed to move to another table location even tho there was a lot of free unreserved and not occupied tables. Not going to mention that waiter has smashed a glass on the floor by our foot. Accidents happen and luckily, no one got hurt. In the back on the balcony there was a private party, fair enough but I was only trying to take a view of London photo, Mr Rude security guard.

Very nice rooftop bar but a little dissapointed with the service.

Beautifully decorated but don’t bother there is other bars and restaurants in London with just as nice interior and far better service. We were greeted by a friendly host and shown to a table directly next to the DJ booth which was too loud as we were dining so we asked to move seat, which they kindly granted. We instead got a table outside which was very low with couches so not ideal for eating but it was a nicer atmosphere so it was ok. The view was horrendous - shouldn’t really call themselves a rooftop bar because you can’t see anything. Also was asked for a card to start the tab - I had no issue in doing so but was quite abrupt the way this was asked for, there are so many security guards and memebers of staff didn’t really feel necessary to hand over the card and I’ve never been asked for this before when dining or drinking in London. Wouldn’t recommend when there are so many other options.

My wife and I went to Radio 3 years ago and thought we would try it again for our anniversary. It is a shocking place. 1) chairs and tables are old, 2) music is so loud you cannot speak to each other, 3) seating is extremely uncomfortable! Starbucks is better!

We lasted 5min and walked out. Will never go back!

The customer service in this place it’s always outstanding. I work in a customer sevices environment and I know what good customer service feels like. The staff it’s always presentable and very amable. The music it’s so good as well. The night we went there was a dj playing. A very different place to enjoy a glass of wine with your loved one.

I had a really bad experience due to being put on a really bad table where eating food didn’t seem to be an option but I had booked a table for dinner with a view. I finally got another table but the service wasn’t good, we had to keep asking for service no one would come to our table and it was really frustrating.

Although a really cool place and great cocktails, because we reserved a table we had a minimum spend - this was pricey but we didn't mind because it was for a birthday. But when we got there we had this horrible tiny cramped table and it probably took about half an hour before we received our drinks. We were really pushy about it and ended up getting a great spot outside, where there was a much better waitress. The general attitude of the staff, bar the final waitress, was really inattentive and we were not made to feel looked after at all.

We were placed on the terrace which was very lucky. However, it was freezing and the roof was open. We sat wrapped in blankets but one diner complained and it was closed. The heat lamps helped but we still sat all wrapped up. I ordered chicken and chorizo for main but it was just a bowl of boiled chicken in butter beans. Not a single bit of chorizo. Was very disappointed really. The service was very slow even though it wasn’t particularly busy.
On a good note, the views were stunning and drinks went down well. I don’t think I would eat there again but I would definitely go for drinks on a warm day.

We had a nice experience but was disappointed that the menu was limited as we went on a Saturday lunchtime. It was directed to the drink menu, more than the food. We went for a special occasion and was slightly disappointed.

Took my partner here for a birthday lunch. We were impressed with the decor and design of the place but that was pretty much it. The service was very slow and the food quality was mediocre. They had a DJ playing music to I guess try and give the place some atmosphere but it was so loud that most people had to shout at each other to vaguely understand what others were saying. The views of London are magnificent though and that was honestly the highlight for us. We won’t be going back again. It’s really disappointing because it’s not a cheap place to eat and drink. In terms of value, don’t waste your money - there are much better places in the same area that gives you a lot more value for your money.

Business dinner meeting.
The service was fantastic, ideally wanted to sit on the terrace but weather didn’t permit us too but nevertheless inside has a lovely warm atmosphere just that the music was a tad too loud for conversation.
While the majority of the good was ok the broccoli salad was a little bland and had no flavour to it, the calamari were really good alongside the sea bass ceviche.
Overall a nice evening.

I would only recommend for a place to go and have a drink bought at the bar. Service of table waiting staff dreadful - not sure if it was due lack of training or lack of management guidance/direction. When food eventually arrived one of the main courses was served on a side plate! We asked to speak to the manager and our final bill was discounted by the cost of one meal and further discount for timing issues. Come on Radio Rooftop management you have a great location here - make the most of it!

I had booked a table for 3 for a friend's birthday. When we arrived, they didn't have a table reserved for us and said that there were no tables available outside (not sure what the point of making a reservation was). When I asked how do we get a table outside - they just replied that there were not tables available outside and when one becomes available, they would let us know. We were then seated inside. A waiter eventually (we were seated for more than 15min) came over to us and took our drinks order, then proceeded to take the menus away with him - without checking if we were going to eat or not!! Our drinks arrived - and then we waited again with no one coming to check on us, at all! I eventually got up and asked if we could get a table outside - as people were leaving and got the same response of there are no tables available outside. (People who arrived after us, got seated outside). We tried to signal the staff that worked there to ask for the menus back so we could order food. Someone eventually came over and I voiced my concerns saying that no one had come back to us, we were waiting for more than 30min etc etc. but they did not seem to be too phased, got us menus and by this point we had been there for almost 1hr! We decided to not stay for food as the service or lack thereof was absolutely shocking!! It was loud inside, we couldn't hear each other and it was generally unpleasant. We will not be returning - seems like they only cater for a certain clientele, maybe we didn't fit the profile and that's why we were treated this way? Worst experience, especially as it was a birthday celebration!

We booked for lunch but was only serving brunch, we asked to put our costs into the cloakroom only to be told they never had one? Waited for 20 minutes and still never was asked for a drink or taken out order.

On the whole the place was shocking and terrible service, lack of staff and certainly not a place I would recommend. Walked out after half hour and got a table below at STK and was looked after immediately

Mother’s Day treat. No warm welcome and our table was not cleaned down and set up for us. Had a nice table by the window on the terrace which was lovely. Food and cocktails were devine.

Our server was lovely but had no time and was rushed off his feet. More staff needed! We had to continually try to get attention for drinks and dessert menu. We ordered 2 deserts but he only took the order of one, so we shared. The only time we were approached to be asked anything was to say we had to leave the table in 15 minutes. We hadn’t even been offered coffee! Shabby service for such a great venue.
