With stunning panoramic views across London, Level 9 restaurant in the Switch House serves a modern menu, supported by grill dishes utilising the finest British meat and fish. In keeping with Tate’s core mission, only the best of British produce is used, with seasonal and sustainable ingredients cooked with international influences.

Starters on the Tate Modern restaurant menu include Cornish red crab with avocado and citrus oil, and twice-baked blue cheese soufflé with gooseberry vinaigrette. Follow this with the likes of line-caught sea bass with champagne sauce, or lamb rump with celeriac and lemon thyme and a white port sauce. Rich desserts include passionfruit and hazelnut chocolate delice, and lemon brûlée tart with bluberry custard and marshmallow meringue.

Wine is drawn from the Tate’s award-winning cellars and focuses on the New World and Europe’s up-and-coming regions.

Level 9 is open for lunch 7 days a week, and dinner on Friday and Saturday. Find the restaurant at The Tate Modern, a short walk from Southwark and London Bridge Tube stations.

    Best feature is the view, the restaurant is however quite soulless and was very chilly. There is no sign of any creativity or special 'spark' - an opportunity missed in my view. The staff on the other hand was friendly and efficient. The sirloin steak was tough and chewy and not very tasty.

    A pleasant surprise; delicious food, good service and what a view!

  • ((*** 7 December 2016 by Tom Teggin from London

    Nice venue. The food looked good but tasted poor. Undercooked potatoes, fish not very fresh.

  • (((** 7 December 2016 by Ian Aaronson from London

    Disappointing. 9th floor views over London obscured from the tables by high narrow windows. Food reasonable but overpriced. Helpful young and friendly waitstaff.

  • (((** 6 December 2016 by Zarin Brown from Reigate

    Food very good although on the expensive side. Vegetables arrived 5 minutes after the main course which was not acceptable. Front of house could do with some more training and improvement on service front.

    Thank you for remindung me.....YES -we had a remarkable day in the Tate Modern...punctually on the way to your restaurant we were trapped in the
    "Express elevator" in Switch house for about 2 hours between 8th and 9th floor....before they got us, 14 people, out again.....
    so - I´m sorry - we had no chance to enjoy your restaurant :-)

    We had a leisurely and comfortable Sunday lunch with friends. The food was all good and we enjoyed the views on what was a sunny December day. We were served by Antonio who was both helpful and charming - a real asset.

    Great view, great service, nice atmosphere, food ok (but nothing special), dining area very cold (all the ladies were complaining)

  • (((** 4 December 2016 by Christine Emms from London

    Very well served. Delightful waitress. Good food.
    We arrived at 12 and it took 10 minutes before we were seated as there was only one person showing people to their table even though we had booked beforehand. There were 2 couples before us.
    Wine was too experience.
