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.

Customer reviews for Skylon
((((( 28 July 2016 by Mark from Saint Albans
We arrived almost 50 mins early but were shown to our table straight away - perfectly tucked away in the corner of the room, overlooking the river. The service was impeccable, attentive but not suffocating. We ordered light dishes - the crab starter followed by John Dory, both exquisitely prepared, whilst enjoying the view, as evening fell and the lights began to come on. We shared a delicious dessert of summer berries, and the Basil leaves were a fantastic touch to the heavenly vanilla cream. A truly magical evening.

Nice to have finally attended the Skylon as so many friends have been but I wouldn't rush back. It needs a bit more interior design as I was left facing the white wall with no paintings or design while my friend enjoyed looking out at the restaurant. Food was fine I enjoyed the main of beef but the cheesecake dessert of crumble was a mess. Call it art but I thought a 9 year old would have made a better attempt at it.

Every course was interesting and exciting. It's some of the best food I have had in London for years. The Chef's amuse bouche was a revelation. The staff were efficient and knowledgeable. The only small drawback is that the nature of the space makes it very noisy. Not the best place for a romantic dinner for two but otherwise 5 star.

Having dined here before in the grill I think the restaurant menu is limited in comparison. Staff were excellent though and are very attentive

Fantastic! Excellent service, wonderful food, attentive staff and great location. We booked this restaurant to celebrate our son's graduation and it was the perfect end to a wonderful day.

Nice restaurant with a good quality of service. I enjoyed lunch on my birthday and found the staff to be very attentive. I tried the Rabbit dish and tasted my friends duo of beef both were lovely.

No idea on allergy information which is against the law. Terrible.

This was a lovely three course meal with a stunning view. The courses were well put together and conceived. I had salmon and grapefruit to start and artichoke risotto as my main. I was let down by the apricot sorbet as the pudding - which felt a little too breakfast like. The chocolate mousse was much nicer. Very good value for money for the experience we had.

Service was impeccable but food was a bit disappointing,
For Dessert only mousse or ice-cream, small portions over all
My beef was tough. However they served 2 extra courses: an amuse bouche and a set of macarroons with the coffee
