Scoff & Banter Canary Wharf restaurant is a cool and intimate space that’s all about the river. Inside, the buzzing basalt and blue steel bar leads through to the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling views. At night our restaurant and terrace becomes a sophisticated dining and entertainment space with elegant riverside dining, a full sized American pool table, live entertainment, and a drinks list as enviable as our location, the terrace really is a stunning evening destination This restaurant in Canary Wharf is right opposite the O2 Arena so you can dine in style before jumping on the ferry over to the stadium.

    The chef was extremely rude and the food was overcooked. Took my sister and my two sons for her birthday and given a smaller menu then the one I had booked for. Once the menu issue was rectified we went on to order and found ourselves sitting 20 minutes between meals and the chef being so rude regarding the wording of the menu. Two slices of bread does not equal a baguette no matter where it comes from. From start to finish the endless issues with the evening put a downer on what should have been an amazing night. The saving grace was Barbara from the hotel giving my youngest a teddy bear and two balloons for behaving so well which was not something we expected. Food was overcooked and again after the debacle of breadgate I really did not enjoy this meal. Fish and Chips for the youngest went down a treat though he ate nearly every bit of an adult sized portion. The views were amazing however the poor chef service totally let this beautiful little place down. Which is such a shame!

    We had a lovely meal in the Canary Wharf location, the views over the river were brilliant and the waiting staff were really friendly, kind and made extra effort with our young children. This made the experience extra special. The food was good if a little slow (and no children menu as such - but they did work with us to adapt the menu). The staff surprised us with a birthday treat which we hadn't expected at all. Thank you for a lovely evening meal.

    Booked 9pm and was lovely however was told I might be able to have coffee as they had turned the machine off! I did get it but machines should remain on until the last customer has left. Likewise was not offered dessert menu.

    I have a mixed review as we went twice. The first time was for dinner just after we arrived and the service was poor, the waiter seemed distracted and grumpy, and there was very little choice on the menu. However we had a totally different experience at breakfast the next morning. The staff were lovely and friendly and we had a good choice of food. Such a big difference from our disappointing experience the evening before.

    The service was very poor. On two occasions one of our guests had to leave the table in order to find a member of staff simply to place our food order. We were not offered drinks and again had to seek staff out to place an order. There was a corporate function taking place pace outside and this was being set up during our meal. Part of this set up included inflating a blow up structure. This was very noisy and although it only lasted a few minutes was very intrusive. No one and apologised either before or after this occurred. Why you would position our table immediately adjacent to this set up, when the rest of the restaurant was empty is quite poor and definitely shows no consideration for your guests. We did enjoy our food, and setting was lovely, but the experience could have been so much better if only your staff were better trained l.

    Not as expected. Nowhere did it say it was in a hotel! Barely at Canary Wharf. We thought we were booking a trendy little place at Canary Wharf to eat. Staff were a tentative, but...there was no one else in there! Disappointing for a rare trip to London to end up here...

    The food was lovely, however my friend chose the roast beef, but was not asked how she would like it cooked, so she did not finish her dinner, but the rest was good. Slight confusion over a drinks order, but corrected. We asked for water for the table, which did take some time to arrive, and when it did, had a load of mint in it, OK if you like drinking minted water, again was not asked our preference. Overall it was nice, the view of the Thames is breath taking, but allow plenty of time if you have a deadline, as the service was quite slow, and unfortunately we had to have the bill corrected at the end of the meal. This was all done without fuss, but I feel a little more attention to detail would have given this restaurant a full star review.

    The hotel and restaurant is beautifully decorated with amazing river views but the food is unfortunately quite basic and the service all over the place. The staff completely forgot two of our mains and took ages to serve drinks even though the restaurant was almost empty.

    We visited on New Year’s Day, there were four adults and four children. The service was particularly slow, maybe there were fewer staff on that day? The food was nice enough, albeit a bit bland. The view across the river is lovely and there was a really nice chilled atmosphere. There is no parking available close by which was a bit of a pain

    We made a reservation for the 31st of December at 10 pm, when we arrived the lady told us that there were no tables available even though we booked a table. She asked us to wait 10 minutes, then she asked to wait 20, 30... we waited 40 minutes for a table that we booked. Me and my wife could see available tables all around the floor the problem was there wasn’t anyone there to clean them. When the table was ready we asked the lady if there was any available table outside and she said no when we saw that there were plenty. I know it was New Year Eve but you should have expected that it was going to be busy and this is just bad organisation. The food was good though and me and my wife spent a lovely night but we were expecting a different kind of service.

    Reserved a table at 8:30 pm at New Years Eve. Table was ready at 9:00 pm. We ordered french fries for the kids as appetizer. After asking 3 times the french fries were seved two hours later. The main menu was served. One out of the 4 dishes was incorrect. The waiter noticed That he confound the tables, removed all 4 dishes and served them at a different table again. The waiter didn‘t offer any free drink or discount. In total we can‘t recommend this place.

    Experience wasn’t as good as previous visits, staff could have been a little more attentive especially around drinks and quite a few things we wished to order were unavailable which was disappointing. The service charge added to the bill was more than a little steep too - would prefer to leave our own tip. However food was delicious as always and there is always a lovely vibe here.

    We traveled to London for the Christmas Holiday and I looked extensively online for a great place for a Christmas lunch/dinner. I read reviews and this establishment seemed like it would be a fine dining experience, which I would expect for the price they charged per person for the set Christmas menu. However I was sorely disappointed with the meal and service. We paid quite a lot for dinner and I was expecting an equally fine dinning experience in return. However the main courses left much to be desired. The turkey was extremely dry and flavorless, the langoustine risotto was bitter and overall the portions were terribly small. The staff was inattentive, leaving us waiting at our table for long periods before offering drink refills and clearing our plates. I do not recommend this place if you're looking for good food or service.

    We went for a Christmas lunch. I know it’s in a hotel. but there were very few signs it was even Christmas! Service and food were excellent. Could have been faster bar service as only seemed to be one person serving. Food was hot and all of our wants were satisfied! Would go again would be nice if it were a little less corporate as environment was quite stale. Would be good for business lunches and events.

    Unfortunately the male bartender who served us our before dinner drinks lacked personality never smiled or greeted us in a friendly manner. He would benefit from some customer care training in greeting paying guests. A smile and good evening costs nothing. The waitress who served us was delightful in everyway . The second male bartender who served us a night cap after our night out was pleasant and greeted us with a smile and couldnt do enough for us. The morning staff that served breakfast were lovely to. However we were shown to a table that had not been cleared from the previous sitting as were many other tables that still had dirty crockery that had not been cleared and reset for the next sitting.
