All I can say is the views Staff and food were amazing. . Drinks London prices but you could spend a little or as much as you wanted. Food had the prawns charcuterie board humus and warm bread delicious 😋 Will definitely go back .

I have been before but this time I found the service to be lacking as it was busy. It was my partners birthday and we had asked for a view of the Thames. Whilst spaces cannot be guaranteed we were told they would note the request. Sadly on arrival, we were stood eating for some time before being taken to a table which wasn’t great. Table was not clean at all. People who had not booked and just walked-in had been given priority over the better seating. See little point pre-booking if this is the system. Won’t go back im afraid.

There were 4 of us and given a window with 4 chairs but the next window had at least eight people so the noise level was awful so we left after one drink. On leaving we all said goodbye to the reception staff - and only as we were out of the door one staff member eventually said goodbye. It was a rather disappointing start to the evening.

Overpriced and 12.5% service is added on regardless. I would like to choose whether to tip or not. Had a pleasant time here but wouldn’t recommend or come back.

The experience of going through the main glass-doored entrance of the Nat West Tower, followed by the airport-like metal detector, which added a sense of exclusivity to the visit, has now gone - replaced by a side-street entrance tucked away around the side of the building. Upon exiting the lift at floor 42, the foyer décor which greets you is still the same as it was almost 9 years ago, and is now looking pretty tired and dated. Having waited around 5 at the reception to be seated, we were taken to a section which displayed the same sense of tiredness as the foyer, with sizable rips present in the seating. Service was prompt...as was the rapid removal of all menu's jus t after our bottle of champagne had been brought to us (good job we were only having drinks). Last orders were called at 22.06 hrs which kind of left a 'rushed' impression, almost as if the establishment wanted us to leave as soon as we'd sat down. The views remain fantastic, however the overall experience, coupled with a bizarre choice to play moderately loud 70's/80's music, was disappointing, which is a shame as this used to be a great addition to an evening out . It had been a long time since we last visited Vertigo 42 and based on this experience it will be an equally long time, if not longer, before we return. Desperately in need of a re-vamp to bring it up to date with the competition; until then we'll be giving this a miss.

Manager seemed stressed. We were seated just inside door, one of the seats was an uncomfortable stool. It was clear we were unhappy with this, but we were not reseated even though we saw later that there were quite a few spaces further in. It was far from warm where we were seated, although on walking around afterwards we realised the rest of the restaurant was warm. Won't be returning.

I booked it for my son’s 25th birthday and got everything I imagined and more. The staff was really nice and professional, the ambience very calm and the view breathtaking. I had some initial concerns about the given time and found out that it was more than enough. We had a great time at Vertigo 42 and would definitely recommend it.

They short changed us on drinks. Said it was the first 6 cocktails. They agreed to take off the value of the vouchers £28 but that was for 4 cocktails, not two. The four cocktails still cost us about £37. On paying the bill, many others had this same issue. They know people visit with groupon vouchers so should made that clear from the beginning if it was a regular occurrence.

No one offered to take our coats, had to organise that myself and for what a very special occasion they closed at 11pm on a Friday night which is ridiculous in London. The music is cheesy pop, at the atmosphere was poor and the service while Ok didn't overwhelm at all. Vertigo 42 is not the place to go if you want somewhere special to spend an evening. It's pot luck where you sit and what you sit on. Very poor experience.

It’s always nice to come back. The atmosphere, view and champagne were great. However service was poor. The member of staff who served us had no idea how to pour the drink in the glasses. But overall my friends and I had great experience.

Plus to that Whats dissapoint me most is all the food items are look so basic and taste like they buyed from a tesco or something , I feel myself like a stupid man while eat them. On the otherhand ambiance is good and I recomend to go littlebit earlier then your reservation so you may find a better place to sit .

Tape on a mirror that was broken in the lavatories. Cushions on the seats that looked old and when one fell off it had tap underneath. Friendly staff, a great view and lovely Champagne. The entrance in is not great now although the security guards were very friendly and helpful.

Comfortable seating and a lovely atmosphere. Food not wonderful but ok for the price. Friendly and efficient staff. Only let down was a service charge on a Groupon coupon which was given as a presentand thus no food to pay for.
