    Very Good ServiceJuly 30, 2017
    Enjoyed the bar, convenient location near Waterloo station, on the South Bank, nice views over The Thames and very good service. Great venue for an early evening drink.

    We visited the grill and the service is incredible, the food is really good and it's all in a lovely setting. Great place for a catch up

    Delicious vegetarian option (carrot risotto was lovely). Very attentive and friendly service, well organised, and venue is stunning. Such a contrast to the tourist trap chain restaurants underneath.

    If you are on your way over the Waterloo Bridge to the station, then make a worthy detour to Skylon bar for a killer cocktail complete with incredible views of the Thames. Read more

    Skip the overpriced dinner - but worth a visit to the bar for their amazing champagne cocktails and beautiful view over the river.

    The main 'Pork' (pork belly) dish with mash is really good! Nice atmosphere and good customer service! Also expensive :)

    Unfortunately I didn't catch the bartenders name but he made the best Old Fashioned cocktail I'd ever had and have never had one as good since

    Looks more pretentious than it is. Grab a drink or ten, as the cocktails are decent, and reasonably priced, considering the great view you'll get overlooking the River Thames

    Grab a panoramic window seat - where windows soar from floor to ceiling - within the chic cocktail bar/grill of the Southbank Centre's grade 1-listed Royal Festival Hall Read more

    This place gets better every next time I go there. But leave yourself plenty of time, because you'll want to enjoy the views as well as the food.

    Been here 5+ times
    It's not always clear whether you are booking the fine dining or Skylon grill. The grill is more fun for a weekend lunch so make sure you check when making a reservation.

    Friendly staff, nice service and great view. Take advantage of the Evening Standard summer offer, as its pretty pricey.

    While every dish was presentable at best, the service couldn't have been worse if they had been training us for a dog fighting pit. A boardwalk hotdog would serve you better. Also they have bed bugs.

    Cocktails might be good but avoid having dinner there. It s expensive for what it is. The pork was terrible si was the risotto. Good deserts (only).
