Couldn't agree more with the review above. We only had drinks, stood at the bar- until we eventually moved to the sofa. Didn't agree with the 13.5% service for ... Uhh... Pouring the drink and supplying a glass? A joke considering we didn't even get what we ordered?!?! Aside from the that the food looked amazing and the atmosphere was fantastic. The waitresses were very attentive and pleasant.

Had brunch today in the lounge at the Oblix . Great views, atmosphere, attentive service, food was very good. Nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Would recommend .

My boyfriend booked a table for us in the lounge area for an impromptu birthday treat - he booked in the morning. We had never been in the Shard but love anywhere with great views. We were not disappointed. We got great views of The City. Lovely live music. We had the set menu for £58 and loved it. Especially the Lobster Pappardelle! They suprised me with a selection of cakes as a birthday treat. Staff were lovely, I think it was so great as we didn't have any expectations. We read reviews but chose to experience it for ourself. Would return again.


The Shard is London's newest, tallest, hottest, glossiest bit of architecture . This is the one building you can see anywhere in London (like a big glass spike in the sky). Oblix is by the owners of Zuma and Roka, so you know what you are getting. Book over the phone or on line or even try a late cancellation on the day (always worth a try, worked for me on my 2nd visit), just go, you will be wowed. Enter through the secret side entrance of the shard to your personal lift that has only one stop, Oblix (prepare for altitude ears within 10 seconds). Once you enter, you are greeted by well groomed staff who can direct you to the lounge on the left or main restaurant on the right (both fab). Try the lounge (must be pre booked) if you are with 1 or 2 people and ask for a table by the window and see the night through with lush cocktails, high end food and live music (every night after 9) and watch over London town, as the sun sets (a view that makes you proud to be a Londoner). The restaurant is also buzzy and has the same spectacular views (better with a larger group). The whole experience is v. Hong Kong/ New York like, unfortunately the OXO tower does now not compare (sky high dining will never be the same in London). Now, the food as you can see this place is at least 50% ambience. The market bowl is a large light salad with fresh ingredients from Borough market 31 floors down (probably the best salad i have ever eaten). The food is grill food e.g. lobster, steak, prawns....but the best was 4 lip-smacking, caramelised lamb chops (had them twice now!). To be honest the food is good enough, but it is the whole package that will wow you. This is perfect for the special occasion meal or even a glam, sneaky mid-week meal with the gals.
