Great place to have a meal with friends. The location is fantastic and it's quieter than the Kingston or Richmond riverside restaurants. Parking outside is very handy too!

It was our wedding anniversary. We had a reservation and had requested for a window table .but when we got there they offered us a middle aisle table saying we are only 2 of us the table is for 4 people .. but later the 2 window tables had just 2 people sitting as well .. we were a bit saddened with the way we were approached....but our waiter was a wonderful guy.. very humble and humorous and always smiling..the food was amazing..thank u ..

It was a lovely location and we sat outside as it was a beautiful evening. The food was good snd the service was too. The ambiance was ok but it lacked a buzz. Unusual mix of clientele. But overall a good evening.

The wharf is a great venue but unfortunately the summer menu is a bit limited . Our main courses were fairly average and certainly poor value for money. On the upside the staff were excellent

Disappointing return to The Wharf. Went with friends and we were unhappy with our lukewarm meals and the restaurant's version of a salad - just lettuce leaf's. Couldn't fault the service though especially the Head Waiter who went out of his way to please.

Really enjoyed our anniversary meal...staff excellent and went out of their way to be super welcoming. Unphased by my various food intolerances. Friendly staff, food very professionally served - food itself delicious.
A very good all round experience...very much enjoyed live music too.

A nice location on Teddington lock. We sat outside in the sunshine. We'd heard some fairly good things about this place.

The service was just about okay on arrival, but increased in quality when a new member of staff took over looking after us.

The menu has excellent choice. A plethora of seafood, meat and vegetarian options across all courses.

In truth, they probably need to reduce down their choice and focus on quality. The scallop and haggis dish didn't really hang together. It was very dry. The fillet steak was nice, but wasn't cooked as requested. And on switching out fries for thick cut chips on a burger, we initially got what appeared to be oven chips, which was strange as they were totally different to those that came with the steak. Regardless, none of the chips were cooked well and they were hard in the middle.

More than anything else, the value for money is simply not there. With wine, the meal came to around £100 per head. That is Michelin Star pricing, for a restaurant which simply isn't anywhere near.

My wife and I had a lovely 3 course dinner. It was a warm evening but we sat inside with the windows open. The restaurant wasn’t busy so it was quiet. The service was very good. The first 2 courses were great but the dessert (fresh fruit meringue knickerbocker glory) which we shared was very disappointing as it was distinctly lacking in fresh fruit. We would certainly return another day.

As a long time customer I was taken aback to see the oysters I ordered were floating in melted ice water. And when the dish was taken away half the water ended on my trousers. A passing apology was afforded.
My wife’s pasta was bland and tasteless. My fish dish wasn’t great either. I wondered if the management has changed hands?

Fabulous lunch on bank holiday Monday. Staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating.
We sat outside on the end corner table so had a couple of episodes of strong gust of wind knocking over wine glasses. A windbreak would be a good idea. But would go back again for sure.

Food, service and ambiance were all fantastic. The staff were helpful and fun, nothing was too much (and we are a fussy bunch!).
The live jazz was a lovely bonus. We stayed for hours and could easily have stayed for longer.
