We decided to do brunch here with my sister on Sunday. we do not have the opportunity to see each other a lot and wanted to do something special just the 2 of us.

The view of London is absolutely beautiful, the food is delicious and the service fantastic. it is pricey for a Sunday brunch but very well worth it. we spent 2 hours and decided to leave (already full) without having dessert as we had other plans for the afternoon but had a really lovely time.

great experience. not for every Sunday but would love to come back another time for another special occasion.

Wonderful if costly experience made all the more enjoyable by the fantastic decor and ambiance as well as the extremely polite and attentive staff.

Food was lovely and I look forward to returning .

Overall very impressed. Came here to celebrate an engagement for the relaxed atmosphere with an amazing view. The staff were very knowledgable of the menu and incredible attentive. The food was exceptional as you’d expect. The only flaw I could pick out would be in relation to a couple of glasses of bubbles we were given at the end of our meal from our waiter. We thought a very nice gesture and was received with gratitude. This however was sneakily added to our bill. It wasn’t expensive so didn’t make a fuss, but thought a little bit cheeky. Other than that, a fantastic evening.

Getting served a drink with a shard of glass within in is never a positive...…..and normally the bill is adjusted to reflect .
Serving a prawn and lobster cocktail starter with potato in it is a new one on me...…...and not a great deal of seafood...……….poor effort for £16.00!!…………..I queried it with the waitress but all I got was an agreement that it was a strange combo ??.
Main courses were happily ok...………….I should have adjusted the £40.00 service charge but I never......I did call to complain next day...………..im still waiting a call back!

I choose Oblix to celebrate my boyfriend birthday, overall it was a nice experience. But just little thing about service every 5mins different waiter/waitress keep coming to us and asking if we are ready to order or not. I mean as a team should a bit of communicated which i think will make service much more better . As we are celebrating birthday we would like to have our own time for dinner not having waitress coming up all the time..
I ordered linguine seafood, hmm for myself it more like a noodles, Not linguine and as my boyfriend is Italian, he definitely noticed that it not linguine at all.
Anyway overall the the view and the wine are perfect for us .

Despite being locked out initially due to the incident at London Bridge, the staff made a great effort with a complimentary glass of champagne and excellent service. A stunning location which all made for a memorable evening

Overpriced and overrated. Pretentious. Food was small portioned and inconsistent. Excellent views but everything else average (except cost which was high). After we went my local London friends said they steer clear.

the only hiccup was our bill as they billed next tables drinks to us other than that it was really nice, they found a place by the window overlooking to Tower Bridge which was highly appreciated as we were celebrating a friend return to London :)

Amazing surroundings, views exceptional. Seeing it go dark as London lit up was special. We had a lovely table near the windows with an interrupted view. Food was exceptional as was the service. Can’t wait to try Aquashard or Oblix West at night

Food was delicious but service was quite disappointing, especially for the price you pay and the venue you’re at. Waitress took 30 minutes to bring the check after being asked 3 times, as well as taking far too long to bring the main courses after our starters, we were starving by the time they came! Not ideal.

More of a bar with good food and stunning views than a restaurant. If you want the better atmosphere and a more varied menu then try Oblix West. All that being said I could not fault the quality of the food with the smoked mackerel starter being the standout dish. Service was attentive and the staff were well informed about the food, wine and views.

I treated my friend to an upmarket birthday brunch with white wine while visiting London from Glasgow . We were horrified to find someone had stuck chewing gum underneath our table. We told the waiter (? Roberto) who came dealt with it and the manager apologised but we thought they may have offered us complementary cocktail/coffee or something as it wasn’t a cheap brunch (£170) for 2. But nothing........ a but disappointing for an upmarket establishment like The Shard.

Location is everything and I think the views over London are the main draw for this venue. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff well presented. I think the food and drinks are a little over priced but at such a location I wouldn't have expected anything else. Would not honour an OpenTable Dining Cheque, despite being previously confirmed over the phone with the restaurant, marking this on the booking and ensuring prior this venue was not listed on the Opentable opt-out list. However outside of this, a pleasant dining experience, although comparable to other similar standard restaurants excluding the view from up The Shard.

Sat brunch with bottomless drinks is a fantastic day out. We weren't rushed at all and it was a very relaxed and enjoyable experience. It would be even better if there were a couple of options for which drinks to have but its a fairly minor request. Definitely a good one for a special occassion or just a fun Sat!

Obviously, you go for the view ... which really is breathtaking. But the food (dinner) and drink (cocktails, wine list) were EXCELLENT! We had an absolutely lovely meal, preceded by a delicious cocktail, then cheese and more wine. Two minor gripes: the starter was served before the wine (a pet peeve ... please, NEVER serve food with no wine on the table). And our bread, though warm and delicious, took a while to come out of the kitchen, which was mildly frustrating since our starters needed bread to go with them.
Generally, the quality of food and service is very high.
We were celebrating a special occasion, and I highly recommend Oblix for just such an event. Or even just to treat yourself to a nice evening!

Whilst we were lucky enough to be given a window table which affords undeniably spectacular views, and was perfect as it was my wife's birthday, the seating itself is really not great. It feels like normal height tables but way-too-low seats (comfy, sink-into seats) so it feels far more suited to snacking/sharing and chatting than it does a proper restaurant experience. I'm not complaining at the price at all but given that we spent over £400, we were definitely not expecting more of a restaurant feel to the eating arrangements.

Also, the tables are very wide so with four people sitting so far apart, and the high-level music (albeit excellent music) it's virtually impossible to hold a four-way conversation. As it was my wife's birthday and we went with friends, it was genuinely frustrating and quite disappointing.

Despite the excellent food, wine and impeccable service, the above points seriously detracted from our experience and we would not return for these reasons (unless there are other table arrangements we're not aware of).

The seating is very low; the food was generally sweet but okay and expensive.
Obilix West is definitely better.

Era una serata molto speciale, ho chiesto alla mia fidanzata di sposarmi: ingresso con controllo di sicurezza, ascensore che porta direttamente al 32º piano, composto da 2 ristoranti: l’east è il più informale dei due, dj set, musica alta, molta gente tavolo alti e bassi, vetrate con vista incredibile su tutto il lato est di Londra. Abbiamo preso dei ravioli fuori menu al granchio, molto gustosi, e due branzini freschi e ben cotti. Il nostro cameriere era italiano quindi è stato tutto molto Semplice e lui estremamente gentile e premuroso.
Se avete idea di un aperitivo è il posto ideale, per una serata romantica suggerisco l’Ovest. I prezzi sono molto alti, noi con una bottiglia di Chianti e dolce 248 GBP.
