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.

    Food and wine very good but service dreadful. Expensive.

    The service by front of house was good although leaving customers to wait for a drink for 15 minutes after they have ordered it is not; this was the same for the table next to us. The waiter was friendly and helpful but inexperienced. The food took a VERY long time to arrive for everyone and this is the main reason for not returning to this restaurant, Everyone was frustrated by this and not one member of staff seemed to care. The previous restaurant in the boiler house was fantastic so how did you get this so wrong?

    As a member of the Tate, I was curious how the new restaurant would stack up. So we booked for a dinner for two on a Sunday night. The first thing you noticed about the restaurant - it is modern (you would kind of expect this from Tate Modern). The second you might notice - the restaurant is actually pretty big. we had a lovely table for two close to the windows. The menue is fish balanced but a grill menue balances out for the meat lovers. We went for a starter which turned out to the very well cooked with an innovative mix of ingredients. Also the presentation was very appealing. The fillet steak was cooked to perfection (you might argue that it could have been warmer) and the accompanying chips were without complaint. A nice treat - you can also add your sauce of choice. Everything was accompanied by a nice glass of Portuguese red. The service was very attentive as well. Playing on the membership theme again: I might be biased, but I like the restaurant and I will definitely come back.

    Pretty disappointing I'm afraid. The room is badly designed for a restaurant. There's no view when sitting down and the acoustics are terrible. Three of the menu items were not available. Prices are high but the portion sizes are very small. The trout starter was tasteless. The lamb main course was much better, delicious in fact. Service was friendly and very attentive.

    Dry chicken. Oversalted sauce. Champignons as "wild mushrooms". Lukewarm old potatoes. Good wine. Very good crab.

    Lovely view
    Good Food , service far too slow
    Difficult to get to, as the lifts (too small) were packed

    Friendly service by 'phone accomodated our request for a change of time. Meeting and greeting a bit unrehearsed, and the wait for table/(excellent)drinks from the bar routine seemed under-rehearsed.
    Table staff friendly and mostly efficient and the food we selected from the rather limited menu was mostly very good (my chicken liver parfait & calves liver, especially) - however the menu had a number of items that seemed unreasonably over-priced (was it sea bream or sea bass, in particular - a spit from Billingsgate??) Interesting wine list - and reasonable wine by the glass.
    Sadly, I have to say as an architect (and project manager daughter) and one time fans of H & DeM, we found the restaurant interior as disappointing as that of the new Members' lounge.
    Would only recommend to others for a quick and convenient meal after visiting Tate M exhibitions.

    A very good lunch. Food was excellent and the service was also excellent.
    It was an enjoyable dinning experience

    Great food, beautifully cooked. Slow to serve the wines we ordered with each course. Restaurant's poor acoustics made it a noisy experience.
