Summary

“A table by the window overlooking the Thames and St Paul’s, a glass of Champagne: ultimate romance!” – that’s the impression left on some fans of this sky-high brasserie from Rainer Becker (of Zuma and Roka fame). That “the food is great, too” can seem like something of an afterthought, but on most accounts it does live up, even if prices are as steep as The Shard’s glass sides! You can book for either the ‘West’ or ‘East’ sections – the former’s selection of grills from the Josper (plus flatbreads, salads, and so on) is more extensive than the latter’s.

Summary

“Yes the views are amazing and that is what you go for” (including on business), but this 32-floor venue is “living off its location” – the food is “expensive and nothing to write home about” and service – though more amiable of late – still so so.

Summary

“The location has definite ‘wow’ factor” at this 32nd-floor dining lounge in the Shard – “unbeatable for romance at night time (if you can get a window table for the views)”. “Rude service” is a hazard however, as is “average” food, all “at prices to match the altitude”.

Summary

“To woo a date” the view is “stunning” at this 32nd-floor South Bank roost (run by the owners of Zuma, et al); so are the “extortionate” prices though, and sceptics suggest you “go to the bar, and eat elsewhere”. (Stop Press – will new Pied à Terre chef, Marcus Eaves – who joined in September 2015 – finally make it a foodie hotspot?)

Reviewed 5 months, 16 days ago

"I went for tea which was good. The views are wonderful. But it looks like most of the larger tables aren't by the windows and otherwise the dining room is unimpressive. The clientele seem mostly to be English tourists. The service is efficient I suppose. The tea isn't great. The china isn't great. And they offered free refills but then seemed a little begrudging when we asked for them."
