Rocket Canary Wharf Ratings and Reviews
Be careful you're not sat under a speaker
Music can be very loud at times no matter where u sit
Food isn't as good as it used to be
Not much on the plate in regards to salad. We ordered the fish and chip salad and steak and chip salad. Very small amount of salad which is confusing considering the plate name. Sad because last time we went food was amazing and lots on the plate.
One of the worst dining experiences I've had in London since about 2009. Food being mediocre was the least of it. Service was shocking, no wines by the glass left and when we suggested a reasonably sensible solution the manager shrugged. No interest or discretion to fix any issues. The waiter had to come back and check our order 3 times. When we got a different waiter and asked what was happening he said 'dont get me started on the problems with this place'. Jamies was rammed, Rocket was dead. And I don't think Jamies is particularly good. Pretty sad really on premier real estate in Canary Wharf.
We went on a thursday night and it was very busy and lively with very loud music and people getting very drunk and dancing. It wasn't too appropriate for our purpose of catching up over dinner as we had to shout to be heard. But if you were going for a good time then it's probably the right place.
The food wasn't the best with a weird fusion aspect. We had the 'famous rare beef salad and chips' which would have been lovely if it hadn't been smothered by a black bean sauce. The dessert was lovely though.
I bought a 2-4-1 pizza voucher and my friend and I had two pizzas and a bottle of wine. Waitress was friendly and nice, food was good and I would call their pizzas nontraditional in a good way. The only downside was that they had charged us for a pizza although we had already paid with the voucher but must have realised after and refunded us. A bit disappointing though, as you would expect that staff should be properly trained if you are putting a deal out there.
Was very quiet when we went in. Got our table, orders taken quickly. However when the food arrived, one person had asked for chillies on the pizza but they weren’t there. The waitress took it away and then came back but these hadn’t been cooked. We then sat there for a while with empty glasses before we were asked did we want another drink. Think this place does a lot better when under pressure
Food is very good though
I am a regular at Rocket and was disappointment the homemade burger has changed and become bland. We felt because we had a 50% voucher, the service was waivered & as it wasn't busy, so felt the service lacked. Examples, olives were left on the corner of the table was wasn't in view so got left till the end, ordered a regular coke but got a diet coke and by the time anyone came it was no point even raising & finally asked for condiments and never received them. The raw salad, rocket, chip salad was lovely though.
This is the third time I have been to Rocket and the food is always good and excellent value. The service was also good so the 3 rating is a bit unfair on the staff, however it is due to the fact that we had a 9 month old baby with us and when we asked for a high chair, they said there was another child already in the restaurant and they were using the only high chair! My dinner companion had to eat with her baby on her lap, which wasn't the best.
So it was a very specific issue which is unlikely to affect many diners, so in all other respects I would recommend Rocket, but I don't think it is too much to expect a restaurant of this size to have more than one high chair.
Trendy place but service let it down. Waitress was sullen. Also didn't help that there was a very young baby crying most of the night at the next table so made it hard to hear. Food was nice but not exceptional and quite pricey. Would not rush back but overall had a nice evening.
We had a group of 10 folks who came at 12, the food was delicious and worth the wait but the wait was an issue. we had 10 minutes delay before ordering and the food did not arrive until near 13:00. We were a business group of people , and the food needs to be turned round quicker. This meant that some folks had to eat quickly and leave for meetings. It would be a good idea for waitresses to check how much time people had.
Enjoyed my meal very much, however I was not asked how I wanted my burger to be cooked (hence the 3*)and it was a little pink for me. Also, there were barely enough chips, though they were lovely. My companions ordered the fish and chip salad and were drowning in chips.
I regularly use Rocket for business lunches in Canary Wharf. The varied menu always provides some interesting options, the portions are invariably a good size, fresh and well presented and the service is about right for a business lunch although occasionally it is necessary to remind the waiters that you need to press on. Rocket is invariably busy at lunchtimes and early evening meaning there is a good buzz without it being overly noisy. It is a good option.
