Rude receptionist, thought it was a hassle to extend our booking to 8 instead of 6 although the place was completely empty. Very basic, plain food.

We have visited this restaurant a number of times and it is one of our favourites in Canary Wharf with a lively atmosphere / good bar area as well as good food and great service.

I’m a massive fan of Drake & Morgan and have been to many of their locations. I ordered the cheese burger which was wonderfully cooked, the truffle fries were seasoned perfectly and the cocktails that I ordered were made to perfection.

Lovely decor& surroundings.
Food over priced for what you get.
Including the the fact it was luke warm.
No sides.
That was extra.
Also service charge of 12.5% not exactly happy to pay this although you can ask for this to be removed.
Overall.
Just average but I guess as it is canary wharf.... We don't all earn bankers salaries..!!!

I booked this on behalf of my V.P and Managers and their clients to take out post a meeting.
The feedback was that they had excellent service , food quality and value was good too.

The vicinity /ambience considering it is surrounded by skyscraper height buildings, but near to the waterside was an added bonus
I will happily book this venue again for our company /client dinning

I was disappointed with my experience at the Sipping Room last Wednesday. I've never had a bad experience there or at any other Drake and Morgan bar. We were a group of four with a reserved table outside and were given table service. We ordered our first round of drinks within in a few minutes of sitting down and then had to wait nearly 30 minutes for the drinks to arrive, we had to keep asking where our drinks were. Luckily we had some tap water. We were asked 3 times by the waiter if we were ready to order food, we said we'd like our drinks first before we order/eat! The food was disappointing (again I have never had a bad food experience at the Sipping Rooms or at a D&M bar before), the duck salad was 75% bean sprouts, it was lacking in flavour and actual ingredients and had the most pitiful amount of duck. You should rename it to bean sprout salad. 3 of our table order this salad and we barely touched it. We ordered a few more drinks afterwards, to be honest it would have been quicker to go to the bar ourselves or indeed walk to the bar next door and start our evening all over again. Very disappointing experience.

there is only bar service inside and we were on a business lunch. there were two items sold out so it lead to a lot of embarrassment and time to order. the bar staff were unwilling to help with the order. the order required a lot of decisions at the bar; way want lamb cooked - the experience was completely impractical for a business lunch. it took nearly 10 minutes to order.....

For a restaurant area the music was too loud, myself and other guests were having to shout at each other. The restaurant should investigate separate speaker systems for the bar and restaurant areas.

We ate outside on a lovely sunny day. Despite it being quiet things were rather erratic service wise. We had random things delivered to us (other peoples food) and when our order arrived there were a number of mistakes.

Puddings were nice.

I'd walked past this venue on countless occasions but never booked for food/drink. I'm glad I did as it has a great vibe - with live music (on a Friday night at least), creative food and drinks menu along with good service.

The staff were friendly and attentive and the value for money is first rate too!

Overall a nice meal, but my guests and I were seated at different tables on opposite sides of the restaurant...where we waited and waited for each other! That's the first time that has ever happened to any of us. The place was immaculately well kept though, and the food was nice although we weren't blown away.

Nice quiet spot with a good ambience - the music isn’t too loud.

As a coeliac the restaurant had a number of gluten free options including flat breads which was a great surprise.

Would definitely go back.

We have visited Sipping Room a number of times and while my wife was pleased with her meal it was my most disappointing due to the fact chicken was a very small portion and bacon was cold and the burger roll was small and not well toasted. Service was friendly and efficient and we will return and hope that my meal was just a one off disappointment

I used to love this place but the last few times the service has really gone down. And last Saturday was the worst so far. Super slow sloppy service but a slightly abrupt rude lady and seemed liked she didn't really want to be there. The manager was friendly and quick to try and resolve.. but everything from waiting for the drinks, ordering, wrong order and incorrect bill. Maybe my last time there.. disappointing!

Beautiful setting right on the water at West India Quay. Faster service and more attentive staff than at their sister venue, The Parlour. Food was burger and chips, but burger and chips done very well. Not at all rushed, nice to hang out in there, good margaritas.

Attention: They do not have the same brunch menu as the one on their website! Only 20 or 30 pounds set menus. The brunch does not worth 20 pounds. Service is very slow and they got the wrong bill (the server noticed and corrected)

I thoroughly enjoyed my Sunday brunch. The service was attentive without being over-bearing. The Mimosas were excellent, delicious. The Haddock was so fresh and the chips were nice and hot. The ambiance is soothing and relaxing. This restaurant is a great place for a woman, traveling for business alone, to dine. I felt safe and very comfortable. I love the fact that they decorate with potted herbs. Too bad there isn't a Sipping Room in NY. I will definitely dine there on my next trip to London.

Birthday brunch with family and friends. The service was great. Staff are friendly and active. Outdoor sitting in August month was still very nice. Food presentation was lovely, delicious and healthy. We like healthy smoothies a lot. If you want to enjoy your meal with family and friends in a relaxing and quiet time, highly recommend the weekend.
