Was a bit confusing as website had hours open until 11pm on a Monday night, however was closed and dark when we got there. Also if we cancelled our booking within 48 hours, we would be charged a fee of $25.00 per person. Our reservation was for 9:30pm. Arrived on time, and went to Fenchurch by mistake. They cheerfully gave us directions to where we should go. When we came back to them as our venue was closed and dark, they had availability for dinner so we ate there. It had beautiful city views, awesome service, and suburb food. I would recommend this restaurant. Thank you for your kindness.

The view was amazing.. but we were disappointed that the City Garden bar was closed. Our waitress was lovely and we were given a great table in the Sky POD but we're disappointed not to have access to the City Bar drink and food menu. I wanted to have a Pendennis Gin cocktail. The Sky POD seemed very busy and full of walk throughs. We dressed for evening but felt out of place with so many people in tatty jeans, trainers shorts and flip flops. Have you relaxed your dress code?

Siamo stati in viaggio a Londra e ci hanno consigliato skygarden per poter trascorrere una serata diversa dalle altre. Abbiamo prenotato un tavolo al bar e hanno soddisfatto tutte le nostre richieste, abbiamo preso una bottiglia di champagne e un dolce, ma si può prendere qualsiasi altra cosa. All' arrivo ci ha accolto una ragazza se non sbaglio spagnola molto brava e professionale mentre durante tutta la serata ci ha servito una ragazza italiana di cui non ricordo il nome ma se non sbaglio di Milano che lavorava lì altrettanto eccezionale. L'edificio è molto bello e raffinato e dallo skygarden c'è una vista spettacolare di Londra. Insomma una bellissima esperienza, ci ritorneremo sicuramente.

Fabulous atmosphere with the stunning views and garden setting with lots of space to move around. Pleasantly surprised that there was good space between tables and it is not packed full of people. Enjoyed the shared platters and cocktails. Worked well as an outing for 2 and we are already planning a larger group outing as it would suit that well too.

Molto bello e stiloso, un pochino “freddo” a livello emozionale. La vista merita una serata allo Sky garden

Superbe vu! ça i ln'y a rien à dire, en revanche 20 minute pour passer commande 30 minutes à attendre les plats (des planches de charcuterie et de tapas) sans boissons. 14£ pour une petite planche trés peu garnie. Une addition qui arrive alors qu'elle n'a pas été demandé et que nous voulions commander des desserts ( nous avions faim...).Reception des dessert cheesecake pas décongelé....bref allez-y pour la vue et éventuellement boire un verre mais pas pour manger c'est cher pour ce que c'est!

Didn't get the seat I reserved upstairs in city bar due to private event, when relocated downstairs took 20 mins for a waitress to take our order, 10 minutes to deliver the wrong nuts and 20 mins to receive the drink we ordered. A further 10 minutes to get the bill and another 10 minutes to pay. Added to this very poor acoustics in the venue for live music so live band didn't sound very good. Overwhelmingly disappointed - made worse that it was a surprise birthday booking.

Menu was limited which is a real shame. Everything else was great - atmosphere, service, the view etc. The toilets let this venue down massively. I would not return based solely on this. There are not enough toilets and they are unisex, which unfortunately means they are disgusting. Unbearable for the ladies in fact. I queued for 15 minutes and then was faced with the horrors inside.

The highlight is obviously the view and location, I brought some friends visiting from the US for drinks and we really enjoyed ourselves however I was disappointed by a couple of things. Firstly my reservation was for 36 city garden bar, however this was closed and we were seated at 35 Sky pod bar, no one bothered to let me know in advance, secondly the terrace viewing deck closes at 6pm so you can’t actually enjoy the outside view this is very disappointing and not mentioned on the website, finally the service was a bit slow, we had to continually flag down our waitress

We had a reservation at the Sky Garden Bar. We approached the bar at the given time, asked the staff what to do, they said we can pick any table, and they will be there in 2 minutes. 10-15 minutes after we sat down to a table another member of staff shows up letting us know, that we can sit at the table we are at, but it's reserved, so we'll have to move as soon as they come. We told her, that we had a reservation, and that her colleagues told us that we should sit anywhere. She then went back for "the list" and ticked us off and then switched to being much nicer. The lack of coordination between the members of staff made me unsure whether there could've been an outcome where I could've been charged the no-show fee simultaneously as we actually did use our reservation. This is not a feeling you want your customers to get I think. Nice place and good service otherwise. I'd appreciate a bit more food on the menu, but I realize that it's a bar, and there is a separate restaurant for that purpose. We did go to that restaurant 1 or 2 years ago, had the most expensive steak, which had a fraction of 10-15% that was unchewable, so a big disappointment. I could've gotten a 3x better steak at Angus, so I guess the view was much more expensive than it seemed at first.

I spend my birthday there and it turned to be so horrible. We ordered drinks and food, ready to enjoy a lovely dinner but the waiter completely forgot us. We waited 40 minutes and then decide to cancel the food and go away. The waiter didn’t apologise or offer us anything. He was so rude and all of this unfortunate events ruined my day. I thought to get an outstanding customer service like you receive at the Shard but I was so wrong. Beside the atmosphere was so cheap and tacky and despite all the recommendations about the dress code people was wearing snickers, sporty clothes and next to my table they were ladies walking barefeet. I wouldn’t reccomend to anyone. Worse experience ever.

The service was appalling...a smiley waitress approached us saying "I'm your waitress tonight...then disappeared..and no one else took care of us...we waited ages to order the drinks...then we waited ages to get drinks...then we waited for a vegetarian platter..."how many cutlery do you need?" "Four!"....they disappeared again...we went to the bar after about 15 minutes to remind them about it....we had to go to find them every time we needed something.. Such a beautiful view, such a poor service.. I'm sure though that's not the standard. Alberto

Great venue, lovely setting and atmosphere in the evenings. Prices are high, especially with service added, but this is not unusual in London.

The service was quite slow and the waitress was pushy when suggesting food, we didn’t want any food... Great views, good atmosphere.
