    nice place, food is reasonably priced food. Pizza was great. Service was a little poor, although they seemed understaffed.... It took 45mins from seating to order a drink and the same I had to stand up to go to the bar to tell them I wanted food. For us, it wasn't an issue, and clearly not the staff's fault as they seemed ran off their feet.

    The restaurant was not very busy and yet very loud. The food was good but very expensive for what it was (£18.5 + sc for a halloumi salad). The staff weren’t very friendly and kept coming to our table to pick up my plate while I was still eating.. Not so great experience overall.

    Slow service. We booked at 1745 for a 1930 concert. It was 20min before our order was taken, then 20min for starters to arrive, whereupon we reminded staff we had a deadline. We repeated this twice before the mains arrived at 1910 (we didn't have time to finish). We had asked for the bill in advance to save time; when it came we requested the service charge be removed, which they queried; we pointed to the slow service, and a manager had to be found to sign off - yet more delay. We ran all the way to the Festival Hall and took our seats as the conductor was raising his baton. There were a good number of waiting staff around with time on their hands, so possibly the bottleneck was in the kitchen. Our table in the garden was very pleasant and the food OK, so if you’re thinking of eating here before curtain up, allow sufficient time beforehand and then add some more.

    Enjoyed the Green Room. Would come back for sure. Only thing I'd say is that I would highlight any 'out of stock' items prior to an order. A couple of things we wanted to order but were told at ordering, they were not available. Meant we had to send away the member of staff and rethink the options. As I said, small detail and not a major issue. Just useful to know as a customer :)

    The first server we had was great, she was super accommodating for my allergies finding me an alternative to the brunch cocktail. She then went on break fairly soon after and our new server didn't introduce himself to us or explain he was now covering our table and he actually admitted at one point to being tired from too much partying. Everything was really nice but the service really let it down and not sure we'd return after that experience.

    Disappointing. I've always enjoyed coming here, but tonight was a real let down. After an initially friendly welcome, the service was slow and inattentive, the mozzarella starter was tasteless, and the salads incredibly small. Also, amazed by the lack of care or even info on the menu for my gluten-free friend. Such a shame.

    The Green Room delivers a pleasant dining experience with friendly staff, has plenty of outdoor as well as indoor seating and is environmentally conscious. Its location, just behind the National Theatre, makes it somewhat of a 'hidden gem'. Judging by the number of people frequenting the place when we were there early evening, it is a popular eatery. The food menu is somewhat limited, but perhaps that makes it easier for the kitchen to maintain a quick dining service.

    Really friendly welcome and service. Menu is limited but food delicious. There was a company having a party in half the restaurant so staff were really busy and stretched to their limits but still service with a smile and we were made aware that things may take a little longer. The outside area is being redone so that was out of action but when that’s open it will be even nicer. Highly recommended.

    Decent pizzas and nice wine by the glass but very slow service midweek, meaning we rushed to get to the (National) theatre in time for a 7.30 start, having booked for 6.00pm. We only had pizza, no starters!

    With the exception of the unkempt waiter with an unfortunate attitude who showed me to our table, all the other members of staff were friendly, polite and attentive. The outside seating needs more heaters if it is to remain a viable option in the current pandemic and weather conditions.

    Very good food! However, we were not previously aware that this restaurant let animals in. A group of people with a dog were seated next to us. We were shocked. To my knowledge, I’ve personally not been to a London restaurant whereby animals were allowed to sit and dine with people. (The dog was given a bowl.)

    This restuarant is located just off South Bank, close to everything but not as manic as the others right on the river. The staff were friendly and attentive. Our food arrived quickly and the pizzas were crisp and delicious. Cocktails were yummy. We ended up staying for three hours and weren't pressured to leave. Would reccommend!
