    Excellent food , except for the somewhat unexciting gnocchi. The view From the Gherkin s last floor is not as stunning as I was expecting. Outstanding service. Children under 14 not allowed. Wellington filet unforgettable.

    Excellent venue! We had a table by the window so fantastic view & quite a clear day. Service was unpretentious & pleasant. Very nice calm atmosphere although quite busy. We had lunch which was good value. Food was delicious. All in all a lovely experience. Would highly recommend.

    Highly enjoyable evening. We were able to move tables to one one the outer edge with a better view - the food was beautifully presented, plates were piping hot and the dishes were well balanced - we had the crab / ell starters and venison / haddock mains with lovely glass of rose champagne and an interesting Verdejo.

    Food was great, view wonderful, but outstanding was the service, the staff couldn't have been more accomodating. Very welcoming from the moment we arrived, and very friendly throughout. I went with my Mother, and we had drinks after lunch in the atrium, the views were great from the restaurant and got better at dusk, so I'd say it was a great place for a dinner date, or to entertain friends visiting London.
