    We had a three course lunch booked via Truly Experiences. It was absolutely incredible, the food was delicious and really well balanced. I would recommend wearing something smart, something like a shirt for the guys with smart jeans or trousers and shoes is the expectation. We would definitely visit again. Staff were friendly and helpful and the cocktails were fantastic. You will have to go through security at the front door and then you enter the lift and it shoots from the ground floor to the 32nd in a matter of seconds. The views really are stunning and it's a really relaxing atmosphere. All tables have a view out of the window and are suitably positioned so that the meal still feels private and intimate. We had a great time and will be coming back in the summer.

    Private room was booked for team Christmas do and the view was amazing! Food was good but expected a bit more just because it was at the Shard. The service was really excellent- couldn't fault it one bit. They were very accommodating as I was pregnant and offered extra cushions and allowed me to change bits of the menu to work for me. The space outside the private room had a lovely vibe and the bar looked incredible. Lots of instagrammable spots around! Would definitely come back again. Had a great time!

    Food was good and very well presented. View was amazing and the atmosphere was calm and relaxed. Service was excellent. I really thoroughly enjoyed the waffle to start - my main course had raisins in which wasn't very nice. Pudding was lovely A really great birthday treat, if pricey!

    One of the restaurants located on floor 32 of the Shard building, has amazing views and a restaurant, but being honest, the overall experience could not be what you expect. We went for lunch, and they had empty tables near the windows, and they gave us a table on the third layer. Then, plates came late, and one plate came twice. Drinks came after the starter, and starters were more like one tapa rather than a starter. The main dishes were good and tasty. One waiter had a rude attitude towards us for no reason. The final bill was high because drinks, bread, sides, and service charges were not included in the menu price. Finally, they almost gave us a gift voucher from another table by mistake… I would expect to pay the amount we paid for a better experience than the one we had. London views are the best!

    Fantastic view! The food is yummy! We had a private dinner which was all worth it. Good champagne, delicious food and beautiful view. We stayed for a long time and it was a really great experience. I highly recommend it if you’d like to have some special, especially if it’s your birthday, anniversary, etc. Everything it’s worth it!!
