I have been for lunch with work colleagues a few times and the food has always been of a very good standard, good portions at reasonable prices so you are happy to go back. The location is very nice as is the upstairs restaurant, the staff are friendly and the service is quick but not rushed.
Worth a visit
I would definitely visit Rocket City again. The food was very good (we both ordered pizza so I can't comment on the other dishes) and the wine was pretty tasty too. Service was quick and friendly.
Amazing food as always - probably
Amazing food as always - probably the best Calzone I've ever had :)
good food, good ambiance, good sevrice, good wine, nothing to fault. was very happy with the whole experience.
Reliably good food and service
This will continue to be a regular haunt, the smoked chicken and goats cheese salad was as good as ever.
Lovely food, the Chicken Milanease
Lovely food, the Chicken Milanease is the best and I shall be back! The chips were covered with mixed herbs, which made them very fragrant - so I sent them back and asked for a new batch, although it looked more like they just took the top layer of chips off and returned them to me.
Aside from this, all is good.
Lovely healthy food , will
Lovely healthy food , will go back. V tasty and nutritious ! Quite good for the diet ( big warm salads) yum !
Top Lunch Venue
Friendly, helpful staff (even though we messed them around on our booking), delicious food and great sized portions, very fair price, nice location. In all honesty, it was hard to find fault unless you are looking for intimate dining as the main eating area is open plan with lots of hard surfaces, so the buzz from others diners is ever present. A hidden gem for Italian inspired lunch food in the city. Superb pizzas.
A firm favourite
Another visit to a firm favourite restaurant. I can highly recommend the Chef's Salad and the raspberry and vanilla cheesecake.
Great service and a really lovely ambience in a quiet corner of the city. Great for a business lunch!
their food is different but good
food at rocket is reasonably priced, different from the usual pub grub
Rocket impressed. Nice little
Rocket impressed. Nice little place tucked away, a great value menu, and delicious pizzas. Lovely
Picked valentines night to
Picked valentines night to go so it was quite quiet at Rocket City. However, place looks great and staff seem lovely so will definitely go back looking for a busy night.
Food and service were good. Prices reasonable. Can recommend the spicy squid starter, the seared tuna, and the light and mousse-like cheesecake. Pizzas are huge - easily enough for 2.
The service at Rocket is good, welcome at the door, shown where to go, friendly smile, eager staff willing to help, much appreciated. The food was lovely also. All round, good experience, my boss likes it too so I often book for him re business meals.
Great city dining for City haters
I don't like the City but my clients are there so this is what I have to do but Rocket is perfect for me. City types love it but the people who work there are more media/West End in their approach. Food was great, service well balanced - and you could spend as little or as much as you want. I had the seared tuna, excellent.
Perfect for business meals
Good location in the City, perfect for business meals, not expensive but good food with big portion.
I hardly ever eat in the City
I hardly ever eat in the City and have chosen restaurants in the past with only a few tables occupied so there was no atmosphere. So I was delighted to find Rocket had a couple lively bars over 2 floors and a very pleasant restaurant on the 2nd floor. Although my friend and I had an early evening booking, there were already tables occuplied and the restaurant steadily filled to an acceptable level over the course of the evening. Quite a gem with great location, good food and pleasant staff. Would definitely recommend for dining or drinking
Good for a business lunch
I like Rocket City because the tables are spacious and, although it can get noisy, you feel that you are not squashed up as in other City restaurants. The service was fine even though our waiter didn't completely understand our order. The food was very tasty though and huge portions.
good food and reasonable prices
one of my favourites, not too expensive but great food and venue
Good night out!
I love going to Rocket with my friends in the evening for a cocktail or two and a nice meal. The food is tasty and the cocktails are very good!
This was great meal. good sized portions - was a bit of maze to find the place, but once there - very enjoyable meal. Service was good. Value was ok, bit high for pizza but not bad given the location. Would prefer more vegetarian pizza options.
Hidden City Gem
Unless you know it is there, you would not even spot this place, tucked away in a courtyard off Threadneedle Street. Outstanding service, excellent ambience, and a top notch selection of traditional Italian dishes with a modern twist. Highly recommended.
Great choice for lunch
This is not my first time to Rocket City, apart from the decor and service here which is consistently great, it is the food that brings me back! The salads here are amazing, not your usual limp lettuce this place serves interesting salads such as fish n chip salad or chicken Milanese salads which are very filling and great tasting. Even the pizzas come with a healthy serving of rocket salad....
Rocket never let's you down
Rocket never let's you down - great food, great service
Booked last minute and had lovely meal.
Thought was great value for London.
Would like to go again.
A safe choice, good value meals, no need for starters the mains are a good size. Beers are a bit pricy, and no pints only bottles. However, a good wine selection with reasonably priced bottles.
Best lunch in the City?
Rocket ticks the boxes for a decent lunch and glass of wine with an old colleague in the City. I've been here for after work drinks and it is a quite busy - young after work crowd, but at lunch time it is much more chilled out. We didn't want a chain sandwich place or anywhere too glam and pricey so here ticks the middle of the road box. Coming from a girl that refuses to order salad in a restaurant, the salads here are amazing and are hearty and really tasty! Good service.
We booked a last-minute Friday lunch. The place was buzzing, the food was good, the service was excellent.
Friendly welcome. Good ambience.
Friendly welcome. Good ambience. Didn't hurry us when we were the last ones left. Main menu a bit unusual.
Rocket City is a great find
Rocket City is a great find in the middle of town. The building is a rabbit warren of floors and rooms but I eventually found the restaurant on the top floor. It was a shame that it was empty other than the 4 of us. The menu is so long and varied we had difficulty deciding! I had the asparagus then the fish and chips. The portions are huge so no room for dessert but we managed to squeeze in an Affogato al caffè which was lovely. Good value for size of platters but not much ambiance due to emptiness of restaurant.
Good service. Nice atmosphere
Good service. Nice atmosphere and good selection on the menu.
Rocket in the City is tucked away down a side street but is well worth looking for. There is some outside seating which is really great when the sun is out. The cocktails are always well made and the food is delicious. I had haloumi and vegetables which was very tasty and my friend had a pizza which looked excellent. Good lunchtime and evening venue.
Good quality food
We dined at around 6:30 on a Friday and the restaurant was more or less empty. In retrospect we would have gone for a few drinks before hand and hopefully the restaurant would have been busier a couple of hours later. Having said that, we had a pleasant dinning experience. The food was very nice, although slightly on the expensive side and the staff were very helpful.
Fresh food in the City
Rocket is a great venue for a business lunch - the tables are far enough apart for discreet conversations and the food is excellent. I love that the menu changes regularly and the chefs put thought into the dishes. No wild mushroom risotto only for veggies here! I had the baked salmon which was moist and tasty. I had a side of succotash which I have never seen on a menu before and was curious to know what it was. Roasted corn and beans and delicious!
Nice food, bit noisy in the restaurant, but good nonetheless.
Great food, great service
Rocket never disappoints! Have eaten here a few times now & can only compliment them on the excellent service and food - portions are a decent size, the quality is very good & they have a great variety of options. Would definitely recommend for lunch, dinner or even just drinks in the lovely courtyard area.
A good and slightly different city venue. Great food, good atmosphere and very friendly service. If you like Pizza then there is a fantastic selection. If I had one small criticism it is that the portions are for those that are very hungry - otherwise no complaints!
Great Place to eat. Will go back again and again. Thank you Rocket.
Funky venue and expansive menu
Rocket is a vibrant restaurant with a great selection of meals.
Good food overall
Nice location in the city, the upstairs area needs slightly better/clearer signing but otherwise good food and drinks
Lovely ambience for a Monday lunchtime. Good decor. Food was excellent and well presented. Looking around the other dishes on other tables looked mouthwatering...you certainly don't need to worry about a starter as the portions are generous and well the dessetrts are just as good. Good value. Waitress was attentive. Would go again
Amazing Steak and Chips Salad
Came here for dinner last night and had the signature Steak and Chips Salad. The beef was cooked to perfection, very tender, and nice and pink in the middle. The portion was huge, lots of chips, lots of steak and quite a lot of salad.
Also good was the surf and turf salad and the fish and chip salad.
Obviously none of these are particularly 'healthy' salads, but that is part of the fun of it!
Starters, desserts and wine list were also good, and the atmospher is nice with good service.
Great lunch place
Had a very good lunch with a client, we both enjoyed the surf and turf salad and a glass of NZ Sauvignon Blanc. Service was excellent.
Post work catch-up
I went to Rocket City with my friends for a nice catch up over food and wine. The restaurant was very nice and modern looking with a great atmosphere. It was not full but it was busy with people coming in and leaving-this was at about 7pm on a Tuesday. The specials looked very tasty but we all actually went for pizza from the menu. We were all very impressed with the taste of the pizzas. There was lots of choice for alcoholic drinks and cocktails.
I would recommend Rocket City. It's different to the usual chain restaurants that do pizza and I think much nicer without actually being that much different in price for 'fancy' pizzas, and had lots of other things on the menu too.
Enjoyable venue, great food and service. Ideal for business lunches
the calazone is a treat
always a nice place to go when you are in the city, staff very helpful and not too pushy. the pizza's are great. there is always quite a buzz and its a good place to take clients.
Good for a working lunch
The fish & chips salad is always a talking point, food is great value, service is fast and it makes a good choice for a business lunch on a budget
Rocket City is always reliable
Rocket City is always reliable for a business lunch. One of the few city lunch venues that isn't overpriced, the service is friendly and the food excellent. Once you have found it that is.
It's a bit noisy but that reflects its popularity. Our pizza took a long time to come, and the waiter brought us a free glass of wine each in compensation, which was a nice touch.
There is a full menu other than pizza, but I have never strayed beyond the pizzas, which are always good.
Rocket at Adams Court
I often use The Rocket at Adams Court because the staff are very helpful, friendly & welcoming. The food is excellent with a good varied choice at very reasonable prices. The meat or fish dishes are accompanied by a good variety of vegetables, presented in an unusual & different way,which are very much to my liking. Being centrally situated in the City it is very convenient.
