Restaurant description

Found on the west side of the 32nd floor of London’s skyline-dominating Shard building, Rainer Becker's Oblix offers his signature style of upscale, sophisticated, urban dining. A flash open kitchen, complete with mesmerising spit roast and sizzling charcoal grill, brings a touch of theatre to the clean-cut, minimalist dining room.

Alongside succulent meats from the rotisserie and supremely fresh seafood dishes, the Oblix menu features a range of luxury meat cuts finished on the josper grill. Enjoy dishes like lamb chops with harissa and yoghurt, grilled Dover sole with parsley butter or Porterhouse steak to share. Diners can be directed through the staggering wine list at the interactive sommelier station: the first of its kind in London. Choose from cherry-picked international bottles, and peruse some of the world’s most-prized vintages.

Afternoon tea at Oblix West pays homage to the capital, blending ingredients sourced from favourite local purveyors found throughout London. The super-slick bar at Oblix in London offers a more relaxed vibe, with guests treated to express deli options and decadent weekend brunches, while a visionary cocktail menu offers mixes designed to match the food.

In one of London’s most sought-after settings, Oblix West at The Shard is a 3-minute walk from London Bridge stations.

    I booked Oblix west for a “birthday treat” For my husband and it most certainly was a real treat - Fantastic venue / really welcoming and attentive staff and delicious food - it is expensive / some dishes extremely expensive so maybe good to have a few more on the normal price range but it still was an all round great evening Thank you

    Not particularly great and terribly overpriced

    Arrival was well managed and shown through for drinks in Oblix East. Cocktails whilst reasonably expensive were lovely and a different range than usual to choose from. We were collected from the bar and shown to our table - great view and whilst the restaurant was busy, it was not crowded. A waiter introduced himself and said he would be looking after us. During the course of the meal, we were served by 8 different waiters! We had to ask to make the order, ask for the next course, ask for the wine. I asked for french mustard, salt and vinegar. 2 days later those have still not arrived. When I reminded the waiter, a separate person managed to bring English mustard. Unfortunately, I had steak that due to its lack of flavour really did require some mustard. For the price, this was one of the worst pieces of meat I have ever tasted. Alternatively, my partner had salmon which was amazing. The bill had 13.5% service added (which we knew about). Although the service was particularly shocking even for London, we had already discussed that we would still pay it. When we came to enter card details to pay, waiter number 8 asked if we wanted to leave a tip! When I pointed out it was already added to the bill, he mumbled and then went to the payment stage. In summary, location is excellent. Cocktails, arrival and bar staff were great. Food in the restaurant is overpriced and certainly the steak is v poor. The service is appalling

    I felt rushed and service was inconsistent. Some of the team brilliant, others very poor. sommelier very poor and only interested in what he thinks is his type of customer. But little did he know that as I was looking at the restaurant for possible £100k spend. Not now I’m afraid, good service should be good service across the board. Not the case at Oblix unfortunately.
