Very rude staff! We called to make a booking, they said that we don't need booking just to show up. We came in and the concierge said that they are fully booked!?!!?
How they could trick they clients like that?
It doesn't matter if the place is nice if the staff is rude and disrespectful!!!!!!!!

£340 bill for four people but left hungry. Food was a decent quality but you’re paying for the view as portions quite small. Great service and nice cocktails but nothing out of the ordinary.

We booked ahead of time for my mother's birthday, there was a deal on at the time of booking, we had to remind the staff of this when we sat down as we were offered the a la carte menu, so make sure you check before ordering...not sure what would have happened if we had carried on 'a la carte' - despite the 'deal' they still came back with the wrong desert menu...other than that, staff were lovely, service was good and the food amazing, worth every penny. We decided to go for coffee after in 'East' and were glad not to have had lunch there as the atmosphere is very different and more of a 'bar scene', fine for the evening, but didn't have the special feel of 'West'.

One of the worst meals ever. I would not recommend this overpriced pompous hole if my life depended on it.

The overall experience was fantastic. Everyone was very welcoming, and our waiter was very attentive. Our table was not by the window but we were still able to see the great views of London. The atmosphere was very relaxed and a enjoyable place to dine.

I highly recommend the cocktails, blueberry martini, was outstanding. To start we had the bread to share, arrived warm and tasted as if it had just been baked. The guys were in heaven with their mains of steak, mac and cheese and chips. The best part had to be the desserts. We had the mango sorbet, pecan chocolate bar and toffee banana crème brulee tart. All three desserts were outstanding.

We only had a few negatives with the evening; we were expecting everyone to be dressed smartly but this was not the case. I think plain table water should be provided free of charge in all restaurants - £9 was a bit excessive. The only other downside was the mushroom pasta was very salty and I was quite surprised that a meal could not be altered slightly for someone with an intolerance to onions.

There is a service charge at 13.5%, we had said before we went we were not going to pay this but based on our experience we were happy to pay it at the end of the night.

Overall it was a great evening and we will certainly be going back!!
