can't wait until our next visit.08/05/2013 00:00:00Another reliable meal in excellentAnother reliable meal in excellent location.Northbank is my preferred venue for entertaining overseas visitors.08/05/2013 00:00:00Great LunchWe went to Northbank for a team lunch on the '2 Courses and Bubbly for £22.50' offer. There was sufficient choice on the special menu to cater for all tastes; the food was of a high quality and very tasty. The restaurant has a nice ambiance and the service was very attentive. We'll definitely visit again.02/05/2013 00:00:00Northbankgood deal with 2 courses and bubbles for £22.50. also an excellent wine list.02/05/2013 00:00:00Great place, been going forGreat place, been going for a number of years. Even better now the suns out!01/05/2013 00:00:00A perfect evening really...O.k. So we asked for tap water and were charged for a bottle, and some of the drinks were a bit slow (despite being asked by lots of different members of staff if we wanted to order! I think they were a bit quiet, so v attentive, when we arrived). The Maitre D was very attentive and charming and the food was GORGEOUS (and the a la carte looked amazing although we stayed with the TT deal and were not disappointed), truly a place EVERY foodie should visit. The quality was matched by the stunning view (we were kindly given a window Seat as requested). This was a very special occasion and it was pretty near perfect. I would go back in a heartbeat and recommend this place to the hilt!27/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent!Excellent food and value for money. Wonderfully attentive and professional waiting staff. Best pork belly I've ever had!20/04/2013 00:00:00Beautiful restaurantWe had a meal deal which was excellent value. Food was excellent, service very good and ambiance very chilled. We had a lovely view out on to the Tate and Millennium Bridge from our table. Overall fab night.19/04/2013 00:00:00Gorgeous setting with gorgeous foodAlthough I booked the Top Table menu we actually decided to dine from the A La Carte menu as the choice was so appealing and we fancied really treating ourselves. The food was fantastic and the waitress was very attentive in making sure my options were gluten free. We were seated in a lovely private booth overlooking the river and allowed us to reminisce about our visit to Tate Modern earlier that evening. Would definitely recommend to a friend for a treat with a view!19/04/2013 00:00:00Very pleasant business lunch,Very pleasant business lunch, great spot for a restaurant overlooking the tate modern. Food was very good with splendid service.17/04/2013 00:00:00NorthbankEnjoyed the position overlooking the Thames, and was impressed by the quality of the food and the reasonable prices. The staff were very courteous and attentive. Will definitely eat there again03/04/2013 00:00:00Simple food done amazingly well!What a fabulous restaurant with incredible views across the river. The service was flawless and the food was absolutely incredible. Not a huge selection on the menu which I think meant that each element was done extremely well. I would recommend the fillet beef. Well worth a visit particularly for a special occasion.30/03/2013 00:00:00LovelyLovely views of the South bank by night, a varied and accomplished menu, great wine and cocktail list and friendly service. I couldn't fault it.22/03/2013 00:00:00A place to talkThere is a lot going for Northbank - great food, wonderful views of the Thames, Tate Modern and the Globe, and, something unusual nowadays, an ambience in which you can have a good conversation. Background musc is carefully chosen and at a level where it is a joy and not a hindrance. Book a booth for a romantic encounter or for when you simply want to meet and talk with someone.20/03/2013 00:00:00Mostly goodThis restaurant was excellent service and food until the very end when the coatcheck man/manager (more like a bouncer) came around with the bill and seemed to be disturbed that we were going to use our Tastecard discount (we told them at the beginning of the night). We were originally told that we could have the table until 2100 but we asked for the cheque at 2000, but as we were paying the chap said we needed to leave in the next 10 minutes. Very odd and incongruous with the excellent service we received the rest of the night15/03/2013 00:00:00Great staff &locationOverall a great lunch, however without a tastecard the bill would have been very heavy. Food very good with attentive but not fussy service. Bar atmosphere spoilt a little by some ex 1980's yuppies who hadn't seem to have grown up.
Would return.26/02/2013 00:00:00Superb locationThe Northbank has a brilliant location right next to the Thames with stunning views at night of the Shard,Southwark Bridge etc. The decor was modern and welcoming. Our meal was excellent value ,not too 'foodie' sensible portion sizes with a menu from which I could have chosen eveythng. If I had a criticism,the service was too swift but we overcame this at dessert time by asking them to leave it for 15 minutes or so ,so we could digest! Well worth a visit though16/02/2013 00:00:00Worth findingGreat location. Lovely room and views. Food not flamboyant or especially innovative but well executed and enjoyable.07/02/2013 00:00:00Everything about the mealEverything about the meal was spot on and the service in particular was outstanding31/01/2013 00:00:00We just wish it was west!We hadn't been for a while (as, sadly, it's not convenient for home or work) but everything was just as good as we remembered. Superb artichoke soup w/truffle oil; crab; steaks etc & v attentive, fun service. Our friend, who hadn't been before, is going to recommend to his hotel guests in future, for the British/West Country menu & great view. The 50% deal makes it excellent value29/01/2013 16:00:00Despite some menu items notDespite some menu items not part of the TT 50% deal there was sufficent choice , wonderful value and magnificent views.25/01/2013 16:00:00NorthbankSuch a fab evening. Not only for people living in London, but those who also visit this fab city, it is a real treat!25/01/2013 16:00:00WelcomingWe spent a most pleasant evening at Northbank. When we arrived we were greeted quickly and offered a drink at the bar where we met the bulldog who was very friendly. We were looked after very well at the table as well. Most importantly the food was excellent. Everyone was happy. I had mackerel as starter which put me in a good frame of mind for what was to follow. For mains, the lamb was beatifully cooked with the full flavour kept in the dish. There was a pleasant buzz arounfd the place, nothing noisy just the murmur of people enjoying a convivial evening. We were there for a birthday celebration and it helped to make it a happy birthday.24/01/2013 00:00:00Deliciously afforable decadenceVery simply my experience was outstanding. I had been for dinner with a friend here a couple of years ago and after that brilliant experience i was hoping it had maintained its standards and that i wasn't going to be disappointed this time when i went on a date.
I wasn't disappointed! The food is delicious and the menu is exciting making it difficult to choose. I'm not vegetarian but a close friend of mine is. Looking at the menu through her eyes I think she would love it!
The ambiance was just right - not raucous but not a library. Stunning views and immaculate service. Attentive, swift and intelligent but unobtrusive and unpretentious.
All in all a fantastic restaurant and with 50% off food, unmissable.17/01/2013 16:00:00Business venue in the CityI booked for a business meeting. I asked for and got a discrete area which was serviced by a helpful waitress. It was a cold overcast day but the riverside position was attractive nonetheless.17/01/2013 00:00:00Delicious food, great serviceLovely choice of food, beautifully presented, with excellent and very friendly service. Would definitely recommend, and go back again.10/01/2013 16:00:00MDII've been to Northbank a number of times now and it consistently delivers good quality food with friendly, efficient service.

This was my first time sitting outside, which was a nice change. The food was as good as ever and the service was very helpful. A great place for business or social meals and a great location - just down from St Paul's.07/09/2012 00:00:00Fabulous locationWe dined at Northbank Restaurant with a TT offer. We started the dinner with a cocktail outside overlooking the Themes. This place is brilliant for doing just that on a nice day. Reasonably priced cocktails however I think they forgot to put alcohol in mine.
Dinner was served inside and one of us opted for the a la carte instead of the set menu. The food was tasty. The service was very friendly and decor lovely with great ambience. A visit comes highly recommended and we would definitely return.06/09/2012 16:00:00perfect on a sunny afternoon!food was great, very 'gastro pub' and seemed to be very well sourced. Great atmosphere and excellent location. happy to book again11/08/2012 00:00:00We had a glorious al frescoWe had a glorious al fresco lunch on one of the best days of the 2012 summer. I had a booking but arrived early to secure an outside table on the patio overlooking the Thames Path and the river just beyond. Service was good , the fish was fresh and beautifully presented and the summer risotto was a great mix of summer flavours and the rich rice. The Rose was delicious and we rounded off with a coffee. This is a consistently good restaurant but the lunch was perfection thanks to the outside seating.09/08/2012 00:00:00An excellent visitI had a short notice informal lunch party to arrange and I was very pleased with my experience at Northbank.

As usual sea food particulalry well executed.24/07/2012 16:00:00Great spot and great foodI have been to Northbank on a number of occasions and it never disappoints. The service is good, the menu choice is great and the food is excellent. The location is also brilliant - lovely views over the Thames over to The Globe but quite a quiet spot for such a great location too. A great choice for lunch or dinner, for business or social occasions. Probably not quite intimate enough for a romantic meal but I can think of worse places!18/07/2012 00:00:00The complete packageOne of my favourite restaurants in the City. The food is always inventive and beautifully presented. Service is excellent. Recommended wines are a steal. Great views across the river to the Globe and Tate Modern. What is there not to like about this place?02/07/2012 00:00:00Massive portionsWent to Northbank restaurant on bank holiday Monday, it was very quiet after the Sunday river pageant! First time I have visited and I was impressed. Good choice on menu, really good service and a smart restaurant/ Not cheap is you eat off the the a la carte but the portions were huge so actually it was good value. Gret riverside location and views.03/06/2012 16:00:00Friday lunchGreat location with friendly efficient staff. Good varied menu with reasonably priced wine list. What more could you ask for?31/05/2012 16:00:00Northbank, BankNorthbank outside on the terrace is one of the best dining experiences in London on a sunny day. The staff are always attentive and discrete, and the views over the river, Millennium Bridge and Tate from the raised terrace are stunning. Food was exceptional and unfaultable.29/05/2012 16:00:00Great ambienceWe made a reservation and we were offered seats outside but still under shade so that it was not us that was fried instead of the food. The service was perfect, helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The food was excellently cooked and presented, really couldn't ask for more. If you are looking for outside dining along the river - give this a go!27/05/2012 16:00:00Northbank, BankFabulous restaurant with exceptional outside terrace and views over the Millennium Bridge and Tate Modern.

Would be even better in the summer time, the service is great, I have been once before for a drink at the bar which is also very nice.

The food as always was good, my haggis scotch egg came with ham and some cornish cheese and a delightful chutney, I normally would not bother. My salmon for main course was first rate, very tender and the lamb was perfectly cooked too. A beautiful bottle of rose added to the joyful mood.27/03/2012 00:00:00
