Es ist dort - vorausgesetzt man erhält einen schönen Tisch - unglaublich schön. Bei einem Platz am Fenster konnte ich die traumhafte Aussicht genießen. Das Essen war gut und lecker, der Service zuvorkommend. Teuer fand ich es schon, aber es ist etwas, was man sich mal gönnen kann, zumal es ein perfekter Abschluss des Urlaubs war!

Maria our waitress was lovely, welcoming, friendly, attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for making my friends 40th birthday one to remember! Great view at the table and a little candle and cake made it even more special!! Would highly recommend the Darwin Brasserie to anyone :-)

Although our table was booked for 10am we were kept waiting some time and I had to remind the receptionist of my name. Several other parties who arrived later than us were shown to their tables before us.

Lo Skygarden e’ un Posto meraviglioso assolutamente da non perdere se si passa per Londra! La Darwin Brasserie si colloca in questo contesto in modo davvero adeguato e pranzare qui ha reso la nostra visita ancora più soddisfacente !

Food was good, service was ok (a few forgotten orders and/or mistakes but nothing too problematic and were resolved) cost is a little high for the quality but obviously you are paying a premium for the restaurant's location. Cramped seating as they squeezed a fifth chair in on a row for four and the chair was not comfortable anyway as its shape meant I could not sit with my back against the rest - I am not that big a chap. My main gripe was with the noise level, making conversations across the table very difficult, especially with elderly relatives with hearing difficulties. They did not enjoy the experience. Like too many modern restaurants, hard surfaces proliferate, no sound absorbing materials, result = extremely noisy environment.

Great venue but had to shout to be heard by partner... and waiters. I don't need noise to convince me that I am enjoying myself!

We had a beautiful brunch, thank you. The food was really faultless, and the service first-class from all the staff, but especially the waiter, who was very attentive and helpful. The only gripe, and it was significant, was that the wine was served way, way too warm (warmer than room temperature), and as we had all started eating, we opted to add ice to the wine. Luckily, me and my guests don't mind this at brunch/lunch time, but it certainly wasn't ideal. One or two items are starting to show signs of wear...the table, for example, was quite chipped, and the chairs quite worn in places.

Nice environment with the view. Good service. The food was presented nicely but was very unremarkable when it comes to flavours. I would not eat there again.

Woman on ground floor desk was curt. Waiter initially read my order back to me incorrectly. Waiter reappeared and unceremoniously sloshed the bottled water into the glass, spilling some on the table then disappeared. The water was still when I'd ordered sparkling but he'd gone by then and my back was to the restaurant so I put up with it. Food was good and staff at restaurant desk were friendly.

Excellent food, great service, amazing views. Expected more from garden itself but an all round great experience. Would definitely recommend. While food and drinks weren’t cheap the quality was reflected in price. Would definitely recommend eating or drinking and not just going to see the gardens.

We were greeted with smile and a hello. The women who greated my friend and I then ask for the name under the booking to which I gave my name. Her response was a little rude and bordering on offensive stating REALLY is this your name, then saying REALLY another 3 more times. The waitress was polite but pouring the champagne was poor allowing it to spilling all over the table. I don't think she had the training on how to pour wine/ champagne, as the bottle was touching the glass when pouring the champagne. The food was nice and plentiful. When my dessert arrived it appeared to be squashed, the waiter did promptly send this back and got me another. I would have prefer to have my bottle champagne at the table and not kept next to the till area, but this may be because there is little space between tables to allow a bottle cooler. The venue is nice but noisy. They did ask about allergies which is positive as it appears they would take these in to account.The bathroom/toilet are clean.

Great view and nice cocktails but the food is not very good at all. Could find much better food somewhere like The Ivy for a fraction of the price. I'd go again for drinks at sky garden but the food at the Brasserie was very disappointing eg. fillet was so tough, could not cut through it with a steak knife without making the whole table move about.

Der Besuch der Darwin Brasserie war ein tolles Erlebnis. Die Aussicht über London, die Atmosphäre war einfach Klasse! Wir wurden super nett begrüßt, es war ein toller, aufmerksamer Service und die Anmerkung, dass es ein Geburtstag an diesem Tag gab wurde beachtet mit einer kleinen Überraschung zum Abschluss des Frühstücks. Ganz toll und bei unserem nächsten London Aufenthalt auf jeden Fall wieder ein Besuch Wert.
