With stunning panoramic views across London, Level 9 restaurant in The Blavatnik Building 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.

    This is an ideal place to have a stylish yet relaxing dinning experience with a toddler. The staffs are very child friendly but the atmosphere and the menu of food/drink are positively different from what you can get from the normal 'Child friendly' restaurants. We (including our son) love it!!

    Great view from the bar but the seats in the restaurant were a bit low to see!

    Nice food. A great way to spend a Friday night:)

    Had 2 starters, rather than one main-- both excellent; a good option if you want variety and not a huge amount. The asparagus was perfect, just the right degree of crispness, served with soft boiled egg and very fresh sourdough bread. And will certainly hope to sample e thecarpaccio of sea-bass again. The waiter kindly substituted rye for sourdough bread on this one. Te ambience? I wish the restaurant was still in the Boiler house (now the Kitchen)--The Blavatnik building restaurant asks those wonderful views across the river to St Pauls (unless you are very tall!).

    This is a very mixed experience. The staff are lovely. The design is frustrating in that it does not allow diners to see the views as much is obscured by pillars and wood. So different from the old restaurant. When I came last year I thought the food exceptional. Now, although my cottage pie was pretty good my friend's terrine was disappointing and her salad was a few bagged leaves over-laden with dressing. I feel the food has gone downhill. The ambience is still good, thanks to the staff and the lovely wood used in the construction but it is expensive, frustrating and - now - not with "special" food.

    Our first time in the 'new' Tate Modern Restaurant in the Blantvick Building. We have enjoyed many good meals in the 'old' Tate Modern restaurant..the one with the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Thames which is now more of a cafe. Have to say that we are not fans of the new location and decor. Very strange indeed....too much wood, too few views....only 'tops' of buildings could be seen once one sat down. With gorgeous city views, why the architect chose not to capitalise on them is beyond me.
    There were few people in the restaurant on Wednesday. We arrived at 12.30 and departed at just before 3pm. Over that time period there were no more than 7 or 8 tables full ...or that had been 'turned over'. The restaurant is very large and seemed even larger with so few people in it...and we really didn't enjoy that. There was no 'people vibe' and we felt like we were eating in a big shoe box!
    Having said that, we did appreciate that there was music (very low key and opposed to to loud rock) for without the music there would have been no atmosphere at all in the place.
    The food and service nearly made up for it however. The young Maitre d' was a delight and our waiter could not have been more charming. The menu was well devised and certainly had a good range of items for selection. We each had two Starters...Mackrel,Asparagus with egg( x 2) and Fish carpaccio. All were executed well and had good flavour and texture. We also had the matching wine parings which were spot on.
    Overall I don't think we would return to the restaurant because of the 'coldness' of the decor, and will stick with the cafe on the 3rd floor in the Turbine Building....A more intimate space with super views.

    Excellent. This was a birthday meal, which was nicely recognised by the staff with a "Happy Birthday" message on the dessert plates - not asked for but a nice thing to do. Good food; good service; cool on a hot day and convivial.

    It was a disaster. I am in London for a week, staying with generous friends, and this was my night to treat them to a meal. When one of the meals turned up (lamb) it was stone cold. The friend who had ordered it asked for it to be heated up, and it was returned still cold. The maitre d was apologetic and offered a new order of the dish, for which we waited - meanwhile my other friend and I had eaten our meals. Finally my friend's meal turned up - it was still only lukewarm, and not well done as he had ordered, and he ate it while we watched. The whole thing (plus the very slow service) meant that we had to abandon our plan to see some of the art in the museum after the meal - we had banked on having 30-45 minutes at least to do that. All in all it was a highly embarrassing evening for me. I spent about 150 pounds on an evening that I will remember for years with embarrassment and frustration.

    Food was excellent, service not the fastest, decor more like & M&S coffee shop than a top quality restaurant.
