    Great venue for pre and post show drinks but bit pricey when the service charge is added with no option but to pay it

    Service was amazing. Staff were very attentive, prompt and friendly. Bianca was lovely! Food was nice. The only annoying things were that we had to pay a service charge on every single drink (meaning an aperol spritz was £15!) and you have to pay straight away every time you order which means constant interruptions… they could have a better system for this I think.

    On the day it was very busy and I feel as though they over booked. As a customer who had reserved a table, I felt very rushed as staff were looking at our drinks and food, almost to judge how long we were going to be there so they could put someone else there. This was like it from the start, I can appreciate they were very busy but as someone who booked in advance, I felt rushed. Staff constantly looking over, from when we got there, to when we were just about to leave. However, the service was quick, food was amazing and the cocktails were lovely. Just a shame about over booking the venue.

    Pre booked for drinks before show. Very good service from staff. Cocktails are nice but expensive. Actual terrace is average. The view isn't anything special. Was uncomfortably warm , needed a cooling system. Overall an average experience.

    drinks were limited, coctails were not well made, all our ladies complained of them. when we asked to have a couple changed it felt like we had to really justify ourselves and almost argue with the waiter to get it changed. it was cold last Friday and we asked for heating to be turned on and was told they "didn't work". Were given 1 blanket.

    Hard to imagine an overall worse combination of terrible food, drink, and service. This is the lowest review I ever have or ever could give anything. But since it’s in the heart of Leicester Square I’m sure it’s always busy anyway.

    Service was confusing, our first waitress was very willing and polite. She made a cocktail which wasn’t on the menu so she couldn’t be more helpful! However another waitress (just walking by) decided to interrupt our conversation all due to a Evian (empty) water bottle being on the table. She stated this had to be removed, we asked why? She said it’s just not allowed on the table. How ridiculous and unnecessary. Absolute jobsworth. Otherwise fab place for drinks/cocktails !!!

    Had a great time there. Would have been 5 stars all round except for the portion size on the chips. The meagre plate that we were charged £3:50 for worked out at about 20p a chip! And you would have thought that if there was one thing a casino would be good at it would be chips. But to be fair when we complained we were given a refund.

    Worth booking if you are going to see Magic mike, having a few cocktails before and a light bite. But then head to the MM terrace to get ready for the show. I had the steak sandwich and it was delicious. Service wasn't that quick but was ok.

    From the service to the quality of the food the experience was fantastic. Waitress and waiter were very friendly, cocktails were delicious and dinner was fast and gorgeous, great presentation. The only down was the urge or payment when would have payed everything at the end of consumption instead of after every order.

    Now don’t get me wrong, the vibe was great and the staff were rather attentive and friendly… but for how much money it is per drink, I would have at the very least expected to be able to hear the music playing in the background. Also, I felt as though a little more work could be done in terms of general aesthetic appeal and measures to ensure further comfortability such as seat cushions.

    I liked the atmosphere and the fact they had heaters so even though we were outside we were not freezing. I think it was over priced £30 for two drinks is crazy but for the vibes would go again.

    The club sandwich was one of the best Ive had and was good value for money. The cocktails seemed a little weak on flavour (espresso martini). The service was really good.

    Me and a friend went after the show. It was busy but lacking ambience. Not our liking. Food was very average, quesadilla and sliders, bar food as you could expect. They wouldn’t serve us a drink. Implying we had had enough. I had no alcohol yet that evening. Manager would not elaborate. Very odd behaviour. We left. Will not return or recommend as you can imagine.

    Smelt of fish leading up to roof top not pleasant, staff looked miserable and looked like they didn’t want to be there, food was ok ish, got asked to leave after 90 mins even though not finished drinks as another party had arrived, all in all it was ok for the price but staff need to cheer up and be more welcoming

    I booked the rooftop for my hen do as we had tickets to the magic Mike show as well. The man on the front door was very rude which wasn’t a great start, we wasn’t sure where to go when entering the building either so we had to ask another staff member for help. There was only one lift to the roof top which took a while to get into as it was very busy inside. When we finally made it to the rooftop someone was sitting at our reserved tables so a member of staff have to move them on. It was very busy upstairs and quite cramped. We only had time for one drink before the show as it was so busy and the service was slow. Drinks were good but a service charge was added to every one which I thought was a bit excessive. Overall good vibe but I probably wouldn’t go back. Lots of men smoking cigars which we could smell quite heavily from where we were sitting also.

    The staff inside are great, the doorman are over the top, 3 friends could not get in, none of us were drunk yet most people inside were. They missed a birthday celebration. If it’s a group of guys I’d suggest going in smaller groups although that still didn’t pan out, there is a higher chance of being together. Or have a back up place to go to. Prices have also gone up as membership card gave no discount so it’s not as cheap as it was, £5 a pint. Upstairs terrace is good.
