We booked radio rooftop for a special occasion and went for breakfast. When we arrived the lift was not working but luckily a member of staff who was walking by sorted it out to get us up to the restaurant. On arrival it was a besutiful setting but initially slow reception. We were seen to a fantastic table with views outside but as it was so hot and sunny I requested if we could sit inside. After being told we could the member of staff left us stood in the restaurant until we asked another staff member for a table. It was not really busy and there were a lot of staff about. We ordered our breakfast and when it arrived it was over cooked and cold. We informed the staff and they sorted the problem straight away and they apologised. It was a fabulous setting, a slight let down for my birthday and the service was mixed. I would like to go again one day as I would hope this must be usual .

This has turned more into a restaurant hangout as opposed to the trendy bar it used to be. Went there Friday night for drinks and a buzzing atmosphere but I felt it lacked that. Much more quieter these days compared to when I last went a couple of years ago. My rating is based on guys going on a night out. For a romantic dinner with the other half I would have scored higher

Great location- waiting around seated at a table to have 6 servers walk by my table and then finally I approached a server... when I asked about a server, and to get a drink I felt like it was an inconvenience for the server. I requested to sit outside- I was told my reservation was not till 6- I got there 4.30- location was empty. Left a sour taste in my mouth.

The place itself looks lovely, amazing views of the city but that’s where it ends. Service was very slow, we waited for at least 10-15 mins for someone to take our drinks order and then another 15 mins for the drinks to arrive. It took ages to order food and nearly an hour before it arrived. We had few raw pieces of chicken which were replaced and we got an apology and free desserts which was a really nice touch but we barely finished our mains and the hostess informed us we have to give back our table because it’s booked for someone else. Which again is understandable if you don’t have to wait half hour for drinks and hour for food. Maybe they are biting more than they can chew. The food was lovely and cocktails very interesting but it just wasn’t worth the money spent. Quite a shame as we were really excited to hold our business lunch there.

Rushed away from the table at the rooftop to sit inside and then when we were not finished we were rudely rushed out by being asked “do you need help paying the bill or are you okay?”. We were clearly not finished and had spent plenty. Poor behaviour.

Very small main course of Caesar Salad which was dry due to lack of dressing and the rib eye was a poor cut of meat which was quite chewy and very small. I would only return for the view unfortunately.

Great location and food. The service would of been 5 stars if only staff followed through with promises. On arrival there was no seating outside left even though we booked and we were promised to be moved outside when a table became free. This did not happen and seating was giving away to customers who had just arrived.

The staff were lovely and accommodating at all points of the evening.

The table was nice and outside but didn’t provide the best view. It would be helpful if there was a note on the website, or through 3rd party booking systems, that you should request a table with a specific view point if desired.

Both my girlfriend and I ordered the Steak with red wine jus and bernaise sauce. Whilst the bernaise sauce was good, the red wine jus was very ‘liquidy’. The steak was also luke-warm - not hot at all!

Noise level was not great due to other drunk diners, but appreciate this can only be controlled so much.

When I arrived at downstairs door they said my table had already been checked in? I was 5 mins early so nobody go understand to why I was already checked in. Then upstairs I was given a small bench with a bistro table for 3 of us to sit around for food? we asked for another table the waitress (bright red lipstick long dark hair) was most unhelpful not interested at all quiet rude and sulky to be honest.
Eventually we moved our self when we complained to the manager of bad staff - he was most helpful and found us a suitable table to eat a meal at also gave us a complimentary glass of prosecco.
Would I go again NO

What a disappointment! Staff were unbelievably rude. Service was disgraceful from the minute we walked in. 20 minutes to get a bottle of beer?! To the point that we actually had to go and interrupt the waiter from cleaning tables to remind him. Our bottle of wine was served warm and poured into the glasses - not even a courtesy to allow one of us to taste it. I expected so much better and had heard great reviews. There is a minimum spend of £50 per head when booking a reservation and you only get allocated the table for 1.5hours. Given how long it took to get drinks they made it extremely difficult to spend this! We had to continually chase members of staff. Won’t be back and I wouldn’t waste your time or money....Head to Madison as it’s the same sort of vibe and much more friendly/good vibe.

Do not waste your time or money, had to chase drinks orders several times. Ordered nuts and olives to have with our drinks before our food arrived and after 50 minutes we still had no nuts or olives! Burger arrived after 50 mins and was tasty but you can get much better service elsewhere!

Sadly disappointing considering this is our 3rd visit (this time for my daughters 21st pre-theatre brunch).

We had two chipped glasses, which were taken away without an apology. Service was slow, we had to wait 40 minutes for a bottle of water, then had to cancel because we were out of time (at this point the glasses for water had still not arrived). When the bill came we had to ask them to remove the bottle off the bill as we most definitely had not had the opportunity to drink it, which made us have to rush for our theatre booking. Very sad as prior to this I would say I would recommend this venue but based on this last experience we are unlikely to return again.

At £15 a cocktail you would think they would be freshly made but it’s not. Some of the wait staff don’t actually know the menu very well. We ordered the Mexican platter which was disgusting. The chicken was so dry we nearly choked on it. The guacamole is that stuff you get on the supermarket shelves that doesn’t need to be refrigerated. Absolute shambles and to book the table they wanted to charger £50 a head. I ended up complaining to the manager and walking out.

I booked a table here for a special occasion and wished I had never bothered. Food was inedible, sharing platers costing almost £30 with hardly any food on them, and what was there was reheated, grey & revolting slop. Nachos were smashed up and broken, more like Doritos, guacamole out of a packet, chicken skewers were chewy and overcooked. Cocktails were £15 and the glass literally half full. When queried with the wait staff they were surly and rude, demanding payment for a tab, virtually snatched my card off me, and just walked off into the crowd with it, without giving me a key immediately. There were no tables available outside apparently, but seemed to be quite a few tables for a while with no one actually sitting around them. Just because it has 'mediocre' view of London, they think they can charge obscene prices and get away with terrible customer service. Simply don't bother wasting your time or money going to this pretentious, third rate establishment.

Very odd set up
Lovely views of the city obviously come at a cost.
So many rules! Only had the table for 90 minutes even though we wanted to stay longer it wasn’t an option.
Service was slooooooow , waited 30 minutes for first drink and couldn’t order at the bar!

I don’t mind paying for premium however the service was anything but.

Down side is you get a table for 1.5hrs and it takes long to get served for drinks and food to arrive so you end up sitting with no beverage.

The service and the quality of the food has disappointed me. I used to go to radio roof top a lot previous years but I wouldn’t recommend after the treatment I received off the employees.
My partners cake for his birthday never arrived even thought I put it in text and I let them know in person to bring a small cake out for him.
The staff treats you differently if you’re seated in private.
The food was cold and they didn’t care to ask how it was.
The service was terrible as you had to call the waiter yourself rather than them checking up on you. The drinks came late.
Nothing was right. There was not one thing I could write about them that went correctly.
The service has changed so much compare to previous years and I am so disappointed my partners birthday got ruined like that.

My girlfriends birthday, and we were told to leave after an hour of being at the venue to make room for what seems to be better spending customers. The head waitress came and couldn’t care what so ever about the special day. Terrible service, the managers response was rehearsed too. Terrible, will NEVER BE BACK. I can see why they average at a 3 star rating.

We didn’t have food but ordered a drink. Cocktail was ok but not sure it was worth £15! Again paying for atmosphere and view. The view was really good though and outside area was pleasant. We didn’t get a table immediately outside but staff informed us of when one was available. It was quite dark inside Given a rooftop bar. Also not easy to figure out the lift service up to the top - could’ve done with an information sign.
