    Excellent experience. Food very good, lovely staff and such an amazing restaurant, right at the top of a truly iconic building.

  • ((((( 19 January 2018 by Sue Mackay from Watford

    Great! Limited menu but all were lovely and beautifully presented. Staff were friendly but efficient. Restaurant light and airy - beautiful with sun shining through.

    Great location, amazing view, staff were so friendly and professional. The food was so tasty however the mains were very small, my friend had the venison and it was barely 3 bites and not cooked to how he wanted. Overall 4/5 though

  • ((((( 19 January 2018 by Robert Fisher from Lo

    A really great setting and a table by the windows with a great view of the City, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.
    Food was excellent as was the service. Staff made an effort to present cake as Congratulations to mark the occasion
    Drinks in the upper lounge finished the evening in another great setting..

    The experience was good. It had a nice view and the staff was great. Food was delicious. I thought it was too pricey though as a good dinner usually costs 60-70 quid for two, but we were over 100 quid without a starter or dessert.

    Glorious views with a wonderful ambiance, attentive but not intrusive service and fabulous flavours. A real gastronomic treat for a special day out.

  • ((((( 15 January 2018 by Janet from Battle

    Four of us had the meal plus cocktail for £35. Terrific food and friendly, capable service. We were impressed how they somehow made broccoli soup into something sublime. Total bill hit £270 however as we were wine-softened (!) and so all too easily persuaded into extras of port and a cheese platter - which were also delicious. Very nice experience.

    Amazing location

  • ((((( 15 January 2018 by Cheryl James from London

    The whole experience of eating in a restaurant at the top of the Gherkin was amazing. We had a table at the window facing the fantastic views over London. However even if you didn’t have a window seat the views were still excellent. The restaurant is very light and bright which creates a good atmosphere. The food was excellent and I can recommend the venison which was cooked to perfection. We also had our coffee in the bar which gave us a different view of the city. Also all the staff that we dealt with from entering the building to those working in the restaurant were very friendly, extremely professional and informative.
