The views at this Champagne bar attract the crowds - its panorama takes in much of St Paul's Cathedral. It's perhaps best viewed from Dion's own al fresco terrace, with those drinking and dining inside sinking into low-slung leather sofas, banquettes, and more formal dining tables.
The Champagne list features many of the well-known houses, from Laurent-Perrier and Louis Roederer to Bollinger, Pol Roger, Taittinger and Ruinart. Cocktails include classics such as espresso martinis, daiquiris, margaritas and mojitos alongside sharing drinks like the Dion Sloe Sling - a mix of sloe gin, framboise liqueur, crème de mure, lemon juice and sugar.
Food follows a Mediterranean slant, with dishes ranging from sea bass with crushed new potatoes, samphire and sauce vierge to classic tuna Niçoise salad, parmesan crusted chicken breast with green vegetables in a lemon sauce, and pea and mint risotto with rocket and parmesan cheese.

the bouncer asked me if i wanted "something to help me though the night" while i was smoking outside. Yes thats right a member of staff offered me drugs!.......... Awful! as the evening went on 3 other people asked if i wanted drugs. couldn't decide if i was in a drug den or a bar. The staff were all walking around chatting away or on their mobile phones, people openly doing drugs in the toilets. the place is full of drug dealers, users and bad staff which is so surprising being right next to St. Paul's. Think it needs to be closed down and have new management go in and clean the place up
I've dropped into Dion a few times for a couple of after workers! I gues I must be one of those toss-pot bankers Jerry Adams so wonderfully describes people (I do hope his mortgage rate remains so low for so much longer). I decided to book an area for my birthday to entertain my workies, they could not be more helpful. An area had be reserved for us, beers and wine waiting for us. We were never left without a drink and they timed the brilliant finger food perfectly. They even helped me get in a cab many hours later. Thank you
Went to Dion on Wednesday night. The staff took great care of us to ensure we had an BRILLIANT night. They reserved our table near the band. The bar team were attentive, friendly and accommodating. We were all up dancing by the end ! The burgers were great and a big sharing platter was gorgeous. Will definitely be back to see the Allstars ! Thanks Dion !
Similar story here....lacks any sense of class and relies on catering for the tacky, clueless bankers. Staff all walking around like they're on holiday and horrendous food. Don't bother...toss pot city
Check your receipt before you pay - they tried to charge us £12.50 service charge on a £37 meal! Oh and the waitress was rude.
The problem with so many places in London right now is that they have become cavalier. This is not the most tastefully decorated of bars and the menu, ah well. ( the champagnes are cliche City, Essex and Formula One; who cares.) But it is in a good spot - St Paul's, next to Citi Bank etc. - and it has a few good wines on the list. I would be forgiving if the tables were clean and the service nice and good. Instead, twice now, I had to ask a waitress to clean the table; she wiped one corner and tried to flog me olives instead. The problem is clear: softie management. The staff are all too busy walking around with a buzz, ignoring people and on their phones. Stop texting and pull up your pants. And perhaps check out how like minded bars in Geneva and Beirut work.
