    Non vegetarian food & drinks were excellent. Limited choice for vegetarians though. A great venue for catching up with friends over a meal. All Staff were very attentive & professional. Sahib at reception in particular stood out & deserves a mention.

    The service was great and we were well looked after. The main let down were the starters. The main course was great and well prepared. Everyone enjoyed the meal bar the starters. The service by the staff was exceptional and needs to be mentioned.

    The service was poor, I ordered 1 glass of wine, 2cokes and 1 cocktail and 2 hamburgers. The hamburgers came out before the drinks and then 2 cocktails arrived instead of one and a glass of wine. It just took a long time to get the drinks and they weren’t complex.

    I booked the 25% off menu but when paying it wasn’t on, I queried this and it was redone but the amount taken off was not 25% , we waited ages for food and drinks, and I didn’t spot the wrong price charged until we left as we were rushing to get to the o2, overall very disappointing experience

    It was very quiet only 5 of us there apart from 4 other people that came there later. The hotel restaurant was Beautiful with great views over the Thames opposite the O2 Arena. Very clean and Beautiful surroundings inside also the rest room was pristine. The grumble was some wine we asked for they didn’t have and no Pink Gin but the drinks we had were fine although a bit expensive but that’s the normal everywhere now especially Canary Wharf. The food was very disappointing but eatable. Need to get a better Chef for presentation and cooking. Starter smoked Salmon was one slice of salmon on a plate that was not very presentable for the price I’m afraid. I would like to see this rectified for the sake of the Scoff & Banter don’t know how they would cope if it was busy. 5 out of 10 perhaps.

    We had a great meal here before we set off to go to the 02 this restaurant is light and airy and with views overlooking Canary Wharf and the O2. The staff were very attentive and helpful Both my husband and I had steak and both were cooked as requested and the cost of the meal was very reasonable considering we were in London. To be recommended

    Went as a group of four for my birthday lunch. Starters and main courses were very good. Second round of cocktails were sent back as inferior, bar staff on break and someone else made them. Desserts were not good and not charged for these and rejected cocktails. Overall still gave tip to waiter and would return but not eat dessert. Views were lovely

    We've (partner and I) been a few times in the last few weeks as we've stayed at Radisson Blu for a staycation. Although the menu is a bit limited, the food and drinks are quality especially the steak and the goats cheese and spinach wellington.

    Food was lovely, portions are not huge but excellent value for money. Luckily for us we were given a free glass of champagne. We did have a drink in the bar after dinner but drinks were expensive (then again we don't live in London so this may be the norm!!). Staff were very attentive, professional and friendly. Service was great. Views over the river and to the 02 were wonderful, especially in the evening. Just one tiny criticism, cutlery is tiny and my husband found it difficult to use. Scott and Banter is a lovely place to eat with a very relaxed atmosphere whether you eat or just stay in the bar. Would definitely recommend.

    Amazing views and a we had a sets by the window which looked over to the O2 area. We weee offered a complimentary champagne when we sat down but it never came, I also ordered Easter which never came. I ordered the chicken milase which was a decent size but didn’t hold much flavour for its price I used my husbands garlic mayonnaise to give it something. We decided to skip desserts but we were give a little cake on the house as a birthday treat which was lovely.

    We made a reservation for 8 pm- and, upon arrival, were informed that our table was not ready, leading to an unexpected wait. When I questioned if they should have avoided scheduling this reservation if they were full at the moment, the staff interrupted and insisted on explaining without truly listening. Requests for the bill or additional utensils were often forgotten, and we witnessed prolonged waits for tables behind us.

    Really great job by the limited staff on Christmas Day. Food was good. Service was fine. It was Christmas Day. Everything took a little longer of course but we had a great experience despite those stresses. The view in the patio section is wonderful. The food was delicious and good value. Despite the crowd and the limited staff, they didn’t get o e thing wrong. Thank you and great job!

    For £80 plus £9 service charge I think the Christmas dinner was overpriced. There wasn’t much on the plate I had four sprouts, three potatoes and three small slices of parsnips and a small slice of stuffing, the gravy was watery too. The only thing I liked was the turkey the portion was good and the cranberry sauce was warm.

    We came here for our Xmas meal. The food was extraordinary but the quantities were really small. Also, it didn't feel very festive inside the restaurant. Those are the only reasons it hasn't landed a 5-star review. Thank you for the lovely service, though!

    Firstly the service here was outstanding, every person working was incredibly professional. However, my friend and I both thought the food was not an £80 meal. In fact we are both hungry! I wouldn’t go again but it was better than having to cook.

    We had a Christmas works dinner here and the food was incredible. The spiced apple martini was the best cocktail I have had in a while. Such good value for money! This is a little out of the way but great views of the O2 and well worth it!

    Waiter who seated us took us to the table, didn't return to take drinks order foe quite some time, he was very busy laying the tables, setting the glasses and forgot us. After 40mins still no drinks so I had to go get a drink from the bar for me and wife. When I returned tot he table the food arrived and still no drinks, I pointed this out the the waiter who took the order and eventually our original drinks order arrived. I cannot believe we gor charged for them, the very least you could do was give us the drinks on the house. I spent £109 with zero service. I have to stay at the same hotel in 2 weeks time and will certainly not return to scoff and banter!
