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.

    the food was excellent with fresh ingredients and many different flavours. The soup was a bit too spicy for me.

    i think Tate missed an opportunity to create an awesome space on the bank of the Thames when it built the Switch House. The stunning view from the 9th Floor restaurant is hindered by high narrow windows - so diners are missing out on the fantastic views while they eat.

    Like The Member's Room on the floor below, the restaurant is furnished like an IKEA cafe - which is out of keeping with the upmarket restaurant it is trying to be. The restaurant was also very quiet for a Saturday night - so lacked the atmosphere and buzz you would expect at such a venue

    The menu is overpriced. Starters ranging from £8-13, and main courses from £27-36 is pushing it a bit for a fairly uninspired menu - although I hasten to add that my sea bass was very well cooked and the service was excellent. The selection of wines and wine and food pairings was also excellent

    It's not a restaurant I would rush back to

    Great food and fabulous views.

    All food of a very good standard. Service was warm and friendly without being overbearing. Atmosphere and facilities were very good, the views are great.

  • (((** 10 January 2017 by Graham Hayes from London

    The restaurant was pleasantly bright and welcoming with wonderful views over London, unfortunately, this vista was not visible when seated. I am afraid that our meal was not up to the standard that we were anticipating, three of us had the plaice which had been pan fried, it looked attractive on the plate but on dissection it was clear that all three plates had been left under a heating lamp for far too long resulting in a dry hard crust and the underlying flesh was significantly over cooked.My poached pears were well presented but on eating made me rather suspicious that they had come out of a tin. Overall the experience was a disappointment.

  • (((** 9 January 2017 by Lesley O'mara from London, United Kingdom

    Expensive! QUte a short menu - mains at £17 to £30 which come with no veg so you have to order sides at £3.50 each. CHicken was very tasty. Not a great atmorspher subdued lighting though you do see a view contrary to some reviews.

  • (((** 9 January 2017 by Kevin Shenton from London

    Service was slow to start and inattentive. Waited 10 minutes to be offered drinks.

  • (**** 9 January 2017 by Huw Salisbury from London

    Completely lacking in atmosphere

  • (((** 9 January 2017 by Sissel Ellingsen from Brighton

    I was excited a out trying out the restaurant with the views over the river, so had requested a window table. how disappointing to find the windows high on the wall, not benefitting the diners at all....apart from those sitting in the bar with a drink. I also found the interior rather sparse and cold. Not a cosy place to enjoy an evening meal....however, the food was very good andthe service impeccable!
