Summary

“Way overpriced” – this “noisy” nautical-themed dining room on the South Bank near Blackfriars Bridge has “amazing views of the river” (if from ground-floor level) but the “silly, confusing menu” of sharing plates is simply “not appropriate for a high-end hotel”. The “bottomless fizz” and “burgers-and-brunch catering that masquerades as dining” are clues that it’s “probably focused on the tourist wallet”.

Summary

“Top-floor prices with a ground-floor view” makes for an often unhappy combination in the “trying-to-be-über-cool” dining room of this Thames-side, US-owned hotel, near Blackfriars Bridge. The odd fan does applaud its “fabulous Eurofusion fare”, but the whole “bizarre sharing concept” seems like “too much style-over-substance” and “hugely overpriced: even with someone else paying it seemed like a rip off”.

Summary

The “nautical-themed setting” and “splendid Thames views” of this American-owned hotel dining room on the South Bank “do justice to the former shipping-line building’s heritage”. Instances of food that’s “nothing exciting or special” however, lead to numerous gripes about the “unwarranted price tag”.

Summary

It looks knockout, and has “wonderful views of the river”, but this much-hyped, nautically-themed NYC import, on the South Bank, “is going the same way as the Oxo Tower”“you pay a lot for average food and nice décor, and overall it’s not worth it”.
