    A very good restaurant. Good atmosphere, great service, tasty food. Our waitress was very nice and polite. Lamb main was very good. Nice view of London, especially at twilight when all the city lights come on. Very pricey though. £265 for 2 adults and a child. Even though we only had one starter to share and didn't have much wine. Wine portions felt like 150ml. A bit small for £18 a glass

    Came here to celebrate my wife's birthday. Had an amazing table beside the window, with a mirrored pillar beside us, so it felt like our own private dining area. Despite a rainy evening, we had fantastic views across London. Our waitress was lovely - friendly and attentive. The food was well presented and tasted great. Would be glad to return in future. Thanks for a lovely evening.

    Our first visit to The Aqua Shard. We had a great table by the window lovely views and then the beautiful sunset views. All the staff were very friendly and especially our server Taylor who was so pleasant and helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was delicious, no problem there. We had the Pan Seared Halibut and the Beef Fillet with side dishes. The Shard dessert and the Strawberry and Champagne Sphere were lush. Thank you for the Happy Birthday dessert for my son. Nice touch. Great cocktails also. The only negative I could give is we were surprised/disappointed that you charge for bread and butter on the table. We have eaten in many restaurants and the bread/or olives are usually free whilst you wait for your starters. Two pieces of small bread (serves 2 it states. one piece each) for £6 we found quite shocking to be honest. When you are spending over £250+ you would think the small amount of bread would be free?! Apart from that, we did have a lovely time overall.

    From the first moment you feel taken care by the staff. We arrived ten minutes early and we have been accommodated on a waiting table, it was comfortable and we got served at the table with drinks from the bar. Our table was just in front of the window, a glass wall from the floor up to the ceiling which let you fully enjoy the breathtaking view over the city. Service, food and drinks are at top level quality in all their extent, and after the three course meal proposed in the menu we were definitely satisfied also for what it concerns the quantity. Wine pairing with each course is a must. Overall an extremely pleasant experience I would recommend to all those who appreciate excellent cuisine.

    I came here with my daughter as a treat and I can not fault anything. We were taken to our table which was by the window and received 5 star service from start to finish. The food was delicious and as it is a fine dining restaurant I thought the portion sizes were just right. My daughter didn’t stop smiling all night and in the taxi back to the hotel admitted her cheeks hurt. I will definitely come back again and recommend to anyone
