Great experience on the whole. The restaurant was busy and service on the drinks was quite slow but food service was fine.

Music through the meal was great ( for us oldies as we were celebrating a 50th) but got a bit more trendy and youthful towards the end when the DJ came on so we decided to move on.

Can’t beat the location though and the quality of food was very good.

I was absolutely shocked at the lack of labelling of the food at the Brunch on a Saturday. How can you have a Caesar Salad that has Ham in it not mentioned anywhere on the sign.

Had a appalling experience where the manager who thinks he's the only 1 who seems to understand about running a restaurant.

I've told all my friends to avoid this place like the plague rubbish value for money and the staff attitude stinks. Not only will I not be returning but nor will any of my friends and associates.

It's such a shame that such a special day was spoilt by suck stinking attitude of the manager.

Came to London for my birthday from the states. Made my reservation for Oblix East. Told them it was my birthday when we got there. Which they said “happy birthday”. Which that was it- no celebratory cake or ice cream. Food was decent. Menu on opentable is different pricing than what is at the restaurant. Had sea bass- had bones in it. You’re paying for the view and to say you’ve eaten at The Shard and to take pictures.

Our party of 4 was visiting London from the states and wanted a special last lunch meal. The views from this restaurant are amazing. The service was also great. The waiter switched us to a window table for dessert when it cleared up toward the end. The food and drinks were excellent but of course expensive- it’s a London high rise so.... The environment is ‘exclusive’ and so my tourist attire and sensible shoes meant I stood out a little from the cool kids. I never feel entirely comfortable in any super hip establishment, but it was a memorable way to end our trip and I’m glad we went.

From the moment you first arrive, you can already feel the special atmosphere in Oblix. You’re greeted by a team of what seems like a very professional catering team with a warming welcome. Initially, when we were walked to our table, me and my fiancé were extremely disappointed that we were sat right by the bar and no where near the windows whatsoever, seeing as it was a special occasion evening dinner for us we weren’t seeking to sit by the bar and having drinks we were after a special romantic dinner. However, after speaking to the manager, to my surprise he listened to us and accommodated us and as soon as a table was free we were moved over to a window seat. The food was amazing, we ordered the lamb chops and the ragyu burger along with hand cut chips and mac and cheese, I could see no fault at all with any of the food except that it was on the pricy side however it was understandable for the location. You can immediately tell that the food is prepared with using the highest quality ingredients along with the utmost care. We also had dessert ordering the cheesecake along with the Crème brule tart both were amazing and we were both extremely happy with everything. To the manager that listened to us and accommodated to us you made our evening special & I would definitely come back to oblix again.

My kids have been wanting to go up the shard for sometime and I booked it for my sons 10th birthday lunch with family. We booked Oblix East as it was more informal than the main restaurant and the kids could walk around and see the views without disturbing anyone. It was a quarter full and some families & kids

Service was incredibly poor and slow. The staff had to be eyed and waved to come and serve. This was a shame as they should be more alert. The wine menu had to asked for and the wines and prices per bottle are not listed for all and I ordered a rose wine not even knowing the price based on waiters choice. I felt ashamed to ask the price but felt they had made the menu unclear and by glass with many wines not listed. This didn’t seem right.

The artisan bread did not come warm and the kitchen forgot two main courses and we had to wait over 20 minutes to get this by which time the rest of the table had finished their food. Food was presentable but not outstanding in taste at the price they charge and a steak at a good steakhouse would be far juicier. The sauces with the steaks were also very oily and one of our guests had to ask for their chimichurra as they had forgotten it. We had to rush our meal as one guest had a train to catch and couldn’t have dessert though we had arrived in plenty of time and the delay in main courses caused this.

The best dish was the starter squid and some went with the set menu and some a la carte. My son had the lobster and it was a reasonable size and he liked it.

The restaurant manager acknowledged the poor service and removed the 4 side dishes but could have done more but we didn’t want to ask with it being a birthday with guests.

The bill was £371 for 5 with two kids and one bottle of wine at £71.

We would have loved some special service at this price and tastier food but you come here for the views. considering it’s a Rainier Becker restaurant, I suggest he does some mystery checks himself as it’s way below his standards.

Excellent service with attentive staff from the start. After being taken back by the ambience and beautiful views I had drinks and nibbles served in a timely manner whilst we waited for mains.
Beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection and presentation was spot on. The cheesecake for dessert was a lovely touch to finish up. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

I took my Mum as a belated birthday present along with her friend and the whole afternoon was fabulous. The waiters were attentive and very helpful with one of my parties food intolerance. I had advised them in advance and they were prepared when the menu's arrived to discuss the options. The wines that we had were lovely, well priced and their recommendation on one of them was well received by us all. We were originally told that we would only have the table for 2hrs but in the end we were there for nearly 4, no one rushed us, it was perfect and my Mum, most importantly thoroughly enjoyed herself. :) I will return for sure!

One of my favourite Brunch in London when out for a real treat.
Amazing food and view.
Everything is so delicious, top of the game cuisine.
Only one thing could be better if some tea or coffee would be included with the non alcoholic option, it's a brunch after all :)

Amazing venue and views. Disappointed with the service. Too many waiting staff seemingly covering multiple tables so we had confusion over who was taking our order. Had to wait 40 minutes before we were served our first drink!!
Tables were far too low for dining and furthermore the distance to the other side of the table made holding any conversation virtually impossible- particularly over the sound of the live music.

Food was ok- very small portions for the prices and nothing special to report.

If this is purely a drinks venue then fabulous, but as a dining experience it has a long way to go to parallel the experience of the other side!

Amazing view and ambience! The Wednesday night band was phenomenal. Food and service were excellent. We enjoyed soft shell crab and octopus appetizers followed by lobster pasta and blackened cod- all absolutely delicious. We were running late for our reservation time but called ahead and it was not a problem. Would return for sure!

I booked this for my birthday brunch. On arrival the staff were busy and flustered meaning nobody showed us to our table, we were told to walk down the corridor and that somebody would assist us but nobody did. Eventually I was able to catch somebody’s attention so we were seated.

Once seated our waitress was lovely. She explained the menu and was very helpful with allergy information and suggestions. We had the set brunch meaning a buffet starter and dessert and a main picked from the menu. All three courses were delicious and it was great to have such variety for starters and desserts.

Would recommend but perhaps an earlier time when it’s less hectic so staff can be more attentive.

It is pricey for what you’re getting - but then again the view and experience is what it’s all about.
