It was a great experience and just what I wanted for my friend's 60th birthday. The food was lovely and the service everything it needed to be.

    Friendly staff, giving warm welcome from building front desk through to being seated at the table. Food was amazing - our party particularly enjoyed the main courses (venison loin & ox cheek) both very tender and tasty. We all went for crab as starter, presentation excellent, although a few comments would be, one portion had some shell, crab over chilled, and the avocado & melon didn't add much to the flavour of the dish. The after dinner marshmallows were a nice touch and delicious.
    Waiting staff were all very attentive. Would have enjoyed retiring to the viewing area at the top for coffees, this was only mentioned afterwards.

    It was great dining experience in searcys, me and my friends enjoyed the view while we were have lunch, however, services wasn't not too attention about the details, for example, didn't ask customer for still water or tap water before already pouring the tap water, rest of them is all good was very good experience x

    Great experience to try this restaurant in London. Food was excellent and our kids enjoyed it as well. The sommelier was great and found some good wine, but the normal waiter was not as alert as one would expect at a restaurant of this stamp. But all in all a great place to eat and the view is amazing.

    Fantastic views of London from Searcys!!

    It was a nice experience! If the weather would have been clearer it would have been even better. The procedure to come up to the restaurant is a bit exaggerated, you can not just walk in and ask for a table. The names have to be given to security before you have access.... Recomedable for lunch !!

    Friendly attentive staff from the minute we entered the building. Generous glass of champagne, Seabass beautifully cooked and a generous portion. We loved the view and the experience. We are planning to return to the Bar one floor above the restaurant.
