Views are spectacular
Staff could not be more helpful
Set menu was a tad restrictive if you have any dietary requirements, but the staff really tried to accommodate this
Otherwise, scenic bliss at level 42
Great views obviously, and quite empty thanks to imaginary Coronovirus terror, but the actual cocktails were really poor. Not that expensive for where we were, but just a couple of drinks chucked in a glass. Service was good and helpful though.
After reading the reviews i wondered if I had done the right thing booking Vertigo 42 ?
All I can say is the views Staff and food were amazing. . Drinks London prices but you could spend a little or as much as you wanted.
Food had the prawns charcuterie board humus and warm bread delicious 😋
Will definitely go back .
Thank you to the staff at Vertigo! Lovely and very kind, also a lovely view and nice drinks!
Sadly a poor experience on this occasion. I have been before but this time I found the service to be lacking as it was busy. It was my partners birthday and we had asked for a view of the Thames. Whilst spaces cannot be guaranteed we were told they would note the request. Sadly on arrival, we were stood eating for some time before being taken to a table which wasn’t great. Table was not clean at all. People who had not booked and just walked-in had been given priority over the better seating. See little point pre-booking if this is the system. Won’t go back im afraid.
I would recommend but with a warning. There were 4 of us and given a window with 4 chairs but the next window had at least eight people so the noise level was awful so we left after one drink. On leaving we all said goodbye to the reception staff - and only as we were out of the door one staff member eventually said goodbye. It was a rather disappointing start to the evening.
Nice views of the city. Overpriced and 12.5% service is added on regardless. I would like to choose whether to tip or not.
Had a pleasant time here but wouldn’t recommend or come back.
This was my wife and I's first visit in probably 3 years; unfortunately, Vertigo is now looking very dated and tired in comparison to similar venues in London, most notably the Shard. The experience of going through the main glass-doored entrance of the Nat West Tower, followed by the airport-like metal detector, which added a sense of exclusivity to the visit, has now gone - replaced by a side-street entrance tucked away around the side of the building. Upon exiting the lift at floor 42, the foyer décor which greets you is still the same as it was almost 9 years ago, and is now looking pretty tired and dated. Having waited around 5 at the reception to be seated, we were taken to a section which displayed the same sense of tiredness as the foyer, with sizable rips present in the seating. Service was prompt...as was the rapid removal of all menu's jus t after our bottle of champagne had been brought to us (good job we were only having drinks). Last orders were called at 22.06 hrs which kind of left a 'rushed' impression, almost as if the establishment wanted us to leave as soon as we'd sat down. The views remain fantastic, however the overall experience, coupled with a bizarre choice to play moderately loud 70's/80's music, was disappointing, which is a shame as this used to be a great addition to an evening out . It had been a long time since we last visited Vertigo 42 and based on this experience it will be an equally long time, if not longer, before we return. Desperately in need of a re-vamp to bring it up to date with the competition; until then we'll be giving this a miss.
4th time visiting but disappointing this time. Manager seemed stressed. We were seated just inside door, one of the seats was an uncomfortable stool. It was clear we were unhappy with this, but we were not reseated even though we saw later that there were quite a few spaces further in. It was far from warm where we were seated, although on walking around afterwards we realised the rest of the restaurant was warm.
Won't be returning.
Absolutely fantastic, we were blessed with a lovely clear sky. The service was very friendly. Many thanks.
Very nice place to drink something. Amazing look out. The hosts where friendly. But I missed in the meantime or everything was satisfactory.
Our experience at Vertigo 42 was amazing. I booked it for my son’s 25th birthday and got everything I imagined and more.
The staff was really nice and professional, the ambience very calm and the view breathtaking.
I had some initial concerns about the given time and found out that it was more than enough. We had a great time at Vertigo 42 and would definitely recommend it.
Tell them you have a groupon if you do, when you arrive. They short changed us on drinks. Said it was the first 6 cocktails. They agreed to take off the value of the vouchers £28 but that was for 4 cocktails, not two. The four cocktails still cost us about £37. On paying the bill, many others had this same issue. They know people visit with groupon vouchers so should made that clear from the beginning if it was a regular occurrence.
Beautiful setting, attentive staff, fine champagne and beautifully presented food. Couldn’t have asked for a nicer evening.
We have been a few times and the service has always been good. The music today tho really spoilt the ambience. It was loud and too varied. Didn’t create a nice atmosphere and was very annoying at times.
The waitress was very kind
Not upto expectation
The view was Amazing, the cocktaits pretty good. The service too
Family visiting from abroad
Nice view, I liked the place
Vertigo 42 is a tired asset that is living on a past reputation.ripped seats dirty carpets and de motivated staff.
We had an excellent view of London and managed to stay until sunset! Great selection of champagnes!
