The brunch was really great - food delicious and the service spot-on. We had bottomless prosecco and our glasses were never empty! The restaurant is lovely and bright, and has fantastic views over the Thames.

Amazing night of fine dining and fabulous views
((((( 19 February 2017 by Christine from Bedfordshire
Lovely environment and super food. Views over the river were delightful, especially as it became dark.
We had the Evening Standard two courses menu and it was delicious. We ordered some extra veg and potatoes but portions were fine for those with a normal appetite!
The young staff here were amazingly friendly and accommodating. They were extremely efficient but warm, none of this stuffy precocious service you sometimes find in London venues. They were a credit to the place. Great bar with super drinks made with attention to detail.

Came here for my birthday dinner & wanted somewhere a bit special with a nice view. The view was fantastic & so was the food, although the portions may look small the quality is excellent & we did not leave feeling unsatisfied. The staff were fantastic & very knowledgeable about the dishes. They were attentive but not too over bearing.

Unfortunate the sour dour toast was burnt to a crisp and part of the mushrooms were dropped on my friends lap. The waiting staff were not able to get the orders right. The potatoes were hard and when complained was told that they were meant to be that way.

I love the Skylon - but sadly the few times I have been the food is not as good as it should be !
I recently went to Home in the National and the food was outstanding and amazing value -- !
I think the skylon needs to up it's food as the view is the best seller and the staff !
