I'm surprised about the reviews this place has got. Food is delicious, and really lovely setting, high up, but away from the throng of the Tate Modern. Great.

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.

    Both my friend and I ordered Red Crab Avocado. When it arrived it was minute - hardly four mouth fulls to eat. The poached pear was likewise pathetically small. The bill including tip came to eighty six pounds for the meanest most pretentious meal I have ever eaten. The Argentinian waiter however, was charming.
    To give you a comparison I have just come back from the Courtauld Institute where a similar meal for five cost forty five pounds.

    Service was friendly and efficient. The decor is light and modern. The windows are at higher level (probably to prevent a not very attractive view of a flat roofed building between the river and the restaurant), so tables along the wall don't have a view. However, our table in the centre of the restaurant allowed lovely views across to St Paul's etc. There was a good choice of food - the pan fried plaice with burnt butter and capers and a side of potatoes was very tasty as was the extra side of broccoli with chilli and almonds. My dessert of poached pear with Sauternes jelly was light and delicious and a feast to the eye too! One minus - no soft furnishing so slightly reverberant.

    Service and staff were friendly and welcoming. The restaurant was surprisingly quiet which emphasised the spare utilitarian decor. The food was delicious although the portion size was very small which made it even more overpriced. The extensive wine list does not have sufficient lower priced wines and some prices were frankly extortionate. The 2 bottles we did buy were both warm and needed an ice bucket.

    The food and service was excellent, was disappointed with the view, the old restaurant in the old building had floor to ceiling windows, this one doesn't and the lighting reflects so you really don't see much at all of an evening which was disappointing!

  • (((** 6 February 2017 by Linda Eells from Crawley

    Food was fine but overpriced and choice very limited.
    Ambience poor. Hard cold furnishings, no views when seated as window ledges so high and windows dirty.
    Compared with original boiler house restaurant we were very disappointed. In comparison it was rather cheerless and certainly overpriced and lacking in choice

    Great place to combine with visiting Tate Modern
