We ordered a sharing platter with sides and were left hungry and it was very overpriced for some sliders. Definitely not a place to do for dinner - only snacks with drinks

bar, drinks, atmosphere was lovely. food was awful, not worth the money. mini burgers were dry, salad tasted and smelt stale. staff were polite (especially receptionist), good table service. however the security by the lift was extremely rude!!! Customer service training is needed! overall experience 2/10 wouldn't recommend sorry.

Everything was good, 4 of our nibble dishes hadn’t arrived after a little over an hour from ordering however this was comped at the end which is very reasonable. If we had to pay for this it would’ve been very overpriced for a few very tiny portions of food. I wish you they didn’t have the speakers turned up so loud by some of the tables. This hasn’t been an issue before but on our latest visit sitting right below the speaker we could barely hear each other speak.

Overall the service is good, the staff are professional and well mannered. I really enjoy going to Radio rooftop and see this as the first choice bar when looking to go for a drink.

We were very impressed with the lay out , what let us down was the 20 minute wait for the waiter to come to our table . Then by the time we ordered our meals 40 minutes had lapsed for a waitress to come and say we had to leave the table for 8 15 even before we had are meal. So bit of a rush in the end .

Was very average visit. Although it was reasonably busy it really lacked atmosphere and was just a dark bar with over priced cocktails. I certainly wouldn’t bother coming again.

Food was great and service was friendly. The only thing that ruined it was the seating. We were placed right by those plastic windows, covering the outside rooftop. The weather was awful causing them to break and blow in gusts of winds. It was quite cold and the wind was very noisy. It took a while to be seated somewhere else. First time here, I was expecting a nice view. It was ruined with those plastic coverings, can’t see a thing.

The place looks stunning as you walk in and the hostess at the door was lovely. It all changed when we sat down; the waitress was short tempered and had an aggressive tone towards me and my partner. This was meant to be our farewell dinner to London, we ordered drinks as we getting ready to decide on what to eat. They bought drink almost few minutes after. Unfortunately my partner spilled some tea and no one was there to help we were left to clean the table if we were going to continue seating there. We then had to wait a further 35 min to get any attention from any of the patrons. The pace was not busy at all so do not understand why the service was this horrendous. We paid for our drinks and left. Would have not waisted our time with this otherwise pretentious place. The place is overpriced, what for I am not sure. The patrons have no to little attention to details or their guests!! Never setting foot again at this place

This place used to be very stylish/with great service - it's now nothing but a very expensive, very naff below average hotel bar. Service was uninterested/inattentive despite the place only being about 10% full. Avoid! This train has left the station.

Loved it! Didn’t plan on eating but the food was lush. The champagne my partner and I ordered was delicious. The highlight of the night was the yummy churros! Stunning views of London as per usual and service was amazing, I just wish I took our wonderful waiters name!

I don’t know why I keep coming here. The front of house are staff are just off the charts rude and unhelpful. Not enough wait staff as out poor waitress was rushed off her feet. The man at the front desk shouldn’t be allowed to work in a customer facing role. I used to come here with work all the time and it’s always been bad. Must get by on tourists who don’t return and want to enjoy the excellent views

I can’t recommend radio rooftop enough! This is the second time I have been to this bar and the ambience and service blew me away. The staff were extremely attentive and the drinks were amazing. I booked this bar as it was for a special occasion as I was going to propose to my girlfriend and the staff were very hands on and made our time there so so special. I can’t thank the staff enough and the views topped off our whole experience! I can’t wait to visit again! Michael and Liliana especially provided an excellent service.

From photos of radio rooftop prior to going we expected a fantastic view etc, we did not have this. It would have been nice to know there was a plastic sheet over us prior to booking, as this ruined the view completely. The waiters were not welcoming, and the drinks were not nice. Wouldn’t recommend. We were really looking forward to this night, and wasn’t what we were expecting.

We were greeted at the lift by what I can only describe as quite an abrupt, rude gentlemen who told us that as we were early for our table, we needed to wait in the corridor. I would have expected that kind of treatment for if we were late for our booking, not by the fact we were 10 minutes early. Another memeber of staff then came down to help another group of girls who were late, and she suggested we go straight up as they could seat us. When we got up to the bar I was then very suprised that there were a great deal of empty tables. The venue itself was great and the staff inside were very friendly and attentive, but it's massively let down by the rude staff that let you in at the lift, that create the initial impression

We had a great time. Had been allocated low tables and sofa seating near the ladies toilets which wasn’t idea for a sit down meal. On speaking with the manager was given a proper table after a bit of reorganising but shorten our dining time. Food was excellent!

We came for a birthday breakfast
On a cold and blustery day, the views of London are behind some plastic sheeting window, but the cold air get through and it’s quite cold- wrap up warm.
But there are heaters there, so If you are just a table of 2 that’s fine but bigger tables had no heaters.
Standard London prices, full English eg was £22 pot of tea £5
Big portions.
Staff were polite and attentive.
My scrambled egg was very rubbery (like they was done in a microwave) but some people like it like that I guess.
My daughter told me her pancakes were the best she’s ever had .
A very loud lady on her phone face timing during breakfast was very annoying - everyone was looking at her as if to say where on earth are your manors and volume control.. it would of been nice if the staff could of politely told her to tone it down.
Would we go again, possibly yes, but not for breakfast - as the venue looks beautiful.
