Great value and excellent service
The theatre menu was interesting and tasty. Some combinations were a little curious but each individually lovely. Extra touch for my husband's birthday was a treat. Thank you. We will eat here again most definitely.
Very good for a business lunch or dinner outing. Great interiors
Lovely food and service, would prefer music to be less intrusive but I’m probably unusual in that respect!
Great meat dishes, steak and burger were excellent and nicely presented. low ambient noise levels considering it was quite busy, could easily hold a conversation. River view is nice, service could have been snappier but wasn’t bad considering it was valentines night. overall would recommend and price is about right
Valentine’s Day date- the ambience was decent. The food was good and the service was friendly and efficient. Perhaps not a top tier option but good nonetheless.
Expected more from this venue. It was beautiful. It was just OK.
Had the Pre Theatre Menu, such good value for what else is around and did the wine pairings too! Amazing menu, food was delicious and fabulous service. Would 100 percent recommend!
I had a great brunch with my friend on Sunday! Fantastic service and recommendations of the menu from Ettore & Pietro. I will most definitely be dining here again
Great choice for dinner by the Thames. Flatbreads are delicious and so is the ceviche and beetroot. The cote de boeuf was delicious and filling. Will definitely return if they do the special offer again as otherwise think their price points are a little too high for what it is.
Service was great but the food and location wasn’t impressive. Being right next to lyaness I assumed it would have the same amazing views but it wasn’t the case. I’m not sure I’d go back.
Good starters and mains but was let down by the Black Forest log dessert which was disappointing. Perhaps just a bad choice and other desserts are better?
Service was below average, food was ok, but nothing spectacular. I’m we have been here before and the experience was much better- seems to have taken a dip!
Wonderful dining experience! Many menu options, great cocktails, attentive service!
Came for bottomless brunch on a Sunday and had a good experience, service was excellent and food was of value with decent portions. Would definitely recommend if your looking for a brunch place with a view of the river
Wonderful early dinner on Christmas Eve! Service and atmosphere delightful, as well as the meal. The short ribs were amazing - And really enough for 2 or 3 to share!
Waited almost an hour for a starter and then didn’t even manage to get through the pre-theatre dining menu in the 2 hour allotted slot. Excessively slow. Not enough staff, and the staff that were there seemed dismissive because they were really stretched. Disappointing as we were there to celebrate a birthday and it just felt flat.
Lots of potential. We possibly just had a bad night!
Lovely food - especially the flatbreads - and great service. Well worth a visit.
I was disappointed with Sea Containers. My booking was for a business lunch and as such, I booked the Theatre menu as I felt it would make things quicker if we had a set menu. It is not stated in the Ts&Cs, but they serve the Theatre menu as 'sharing' rather than a dish per person. Not ideal given we had various dietary requirements in the group. The offer also said 2 courses for x amount, 3 courses for y amount, but we were not given a choice and were told we would be getting 3 courses. The food itself was tasty, but would've been much better if served per person, as the set menu implied. It just feels like false advertising! The service was also INCREDIBLY slow... there were 5 of us and we were in there for almost 3 hours...! I understand there were a lot of other large groups in there, but surely the whole point of a set menu is to get people in and out relatively swiftly. Even when we were leaving, we had to wait for the cloak room as the attendant had disappeared. Overall, not a great experience..
Good food on the expensive side for the portions but very disorganised and slow service. Good location, decoration and atmosphere!
The food is absolutely delicious. But service not so forthcoming.
We paid for bottomless brunch and we must have had four glasses in the space of 1 hour - whereas other restaurants are constantly filling up., had to keep reminding waiter/waitresses to top up, which i don’t expect to do when going for bottomless brunch.
Waiters in restaurant can be quite rude - especially when walking back from the rest rooms. They don’t wait for you to pass them when getting to tables - they push you out of the way and don’t apologise.
Apart from the service - the food is superb and I would recommend going to Sea Containers - just based on the food alone.
The food was ok, slightly overpriced for what it was. I’d heard really good things about the restaurant but was a little underwhelmed when I went. Im a big dessert person, and the creme brulee was more posset than brulee :(
Went for lunch on a Saturday. Great service and food. It was just incredibly noisy. I suspect the bottomless Prosecco on offer may have had something to do with it! Perhaps not the ideal environment for a date, particularly if you want to be able to hear the other person clearly.
Came in for the festive menu. It was good. The table next to us did not get to receive as it seems they ran out of turkey. Our server was fantastic. Apple pie was served almost still frozen, not sure it was suppose to be that way.
Service was slow. Especially drinks. Thanksgiving menu was ok. Nothing special or unique. Good that proceeds from the Thanksgiving dinner went to charity.
It could have been OUTSTANDING but the service was suffocating. I think they might not have been as busy as they were expecting because we had a server, his manager and someone in a suit all looking over our table. Two people tried to take drink orders, just after we started eating three different people asked us if everything was okay, two asked if they could take the same plate ("no"), and so on. It's not often that you get this kind of attention in London but it does make it tough to hold a conversation when unoccupied staff stop by the table at least 30 times during two courses.
Great location, really nice venue inside. Food (brunch) was OK, but nothing special. The final bill was fairly high, mostly because the drinks (tea, coffee, juice) and french fries were pretty expensive. The meals were well priced though. Overall I would recommend but mostly because of the ambiance and location rather than tastiness and value.
Wonderful place ... Amazing location ... Beautiful view and impeccable service ... Food really good ... Highly recommended ... 😍
The food wasn’t great, one of the small plates we had was really tasty but everything else was very average so I wouldn’t say it’s great value either. Also I was so parched after I can only assume loads of salt was used. Service however was very attentive if not a little too much as it seemed like we had 3 servers to our table, but they were all friendly and helpful. Came here as I was looking for a place with a view but probably wouldn’t return as there’s better food elsewhere at a better price and you can admire the views just as well by being outside...
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Brunch was great value.
A great feel, service was excellent.
I’ve been a couple of times now, I’ve tried the bottomless prosecco lunch which was amazing and on Friday Pre theatre tasting menu meal which again was lovely. Highly recommend great location, yummy food always great service.
My son couldn’t eat his main as the flavour was overpowering so we gave him some of our food. The staff were very apologetic and wanted to get him an alternative but he had had enough. We were not charged for his food even though we hadn’t complained. Fantastic service. Very lively - a bit too noisy for us. Otherwise, lovely.
Really relaxed atmosphere, staff were very accommodating and helpful. Really enjoyed our evening here.
Amazing food - theatre menu. Very good value. Beautiful restaurant with a river view. Took such good care of us and our 82 year old friend on her birthday.
My colleagues had burgers which looked & apparently tasted delicious. Unfortunately my flatbread was grossly overcooked and like eating cardboard. I should have sent it back but didn't want to cause a scene at a business lunch. Equally I'm surprised they served it looking like that.
I booked the theatre deal advertised on Opentable (£25 for 2 courses and prosecco or £28 for 3 courses) but for whatever reasons, the staff at the entrance refused to give me the theatre menu I booked. The food was good but the bill was double what was advertised on opentable for just 2 courses. I did not want to make a scene as I was with a family member who visited me from abroad, it was late, she was tired and hungry and I did not want to spoil her stay in London but I was very disapointed and shocked by the lack of integrity and lack of ethics from that one restaurant staff member. The waitresses who served us were good but because of the one member of staff who did not give us the menu that was advertised on Opentable, I had to lower the service rating. I felt like I was cheated, it felt like fake advertising the restaurant put on Opentable. One dishonest member of staff can ruin a restaurant by overshadowing all the good work done by everyone else
standards have slipped since I was last here - service was slow and almost resentful once you got past the door staff. We had to ask for a drink more than once and the portions were small
Bland food. Unrinsed capers made very very salty salmon.
