We had drinks only where very tasty cocktails and a fantastic experience
Friday evening for drinks. Amazing venue, view and choice of drinks. Not cheap but you pay for what you get. Staff even managed to find us a table so we could extend our stay. Thank you.
The view is great, but only the view. The cocktails were made to sound special, but were less than average.
Great place for a chilled drink overlooking some stupendous views of London, Service and drinks were superb, invest in the experience you really should not be disappointed.
Great views of London, would recommend requesting a window table for the extra touch!
Very overrated. Cocktails are so-so, especially for the price! If not for the view, not worth visiting.
Amazing view and great for a special occasion.
It took a while for our drinks to come out, but we did get our 1.5 hours extended by 20 minutes so it didn't matter too much.
As expensive as expected given the location!
The view is GREAT. The service and drinks were just ok. Did I mention the view was great?
The views are amazing. However the servers do not know anything really about what they are serving, especially the sake. There is a strict time frame and I was asked to leave 30 mins early. I was actually wanting to leave but this upset me and hence I stayed longer drinking water. Luckily they took off the VAT service charge. Definitely wish their were more food options. But wow, those views
A great place to visit for a special occasion. The views are stunning in the evening hours and definitely worthy of a few drinks with friends or a special someone! Wish it could have been more of a full-service bar as the food (not drinks) was underwhelming for the price point.
It was a fantastic annual meet up of friends, perfect to celebrate the festive season and our long standing friendship. The venue is so stylish but also relaxed and cosy and the views of London at night are breathtaking. Our third annual meet up at Gong Bar was truly memorable as always!
Slightly disappointing visit to Gong, I’d originally booked for Afternoon Tea, only to find on arrival it wasn’t on the system.
We decided to take a look at the menu, but eventually left when we were told we couldn’t have coffee unless we were having afternoon tea.
The venue itself was nice, but this experience would probably put me off going back.
Lovely place with spectacular views. Excellent staff, excellent drinks. Food menu is limited. Expensive but worth it for a little treat
You pay for the location and view. Service is okay and cocktails average with no real ‘wow factor’ as expected. I feel a bit let down by the whole experience and won’t be returning in a rush. Dan
I booked a table for my partners birthday as a surprise for him. The staff were very welcoming and attentive from start to finish. The views were amazing, cocktails were delicious and they even brought a special drink over to our table for my partners birthday!
Fantastic afternoon at The Shard “Gonk”.
The view is amazing, food, beverage, service, the all combination was Excellent. I will definitely be back.
unfortunately they didn't have more than half of the drinks
It is a fantastic bar and service excellent however the drinks are very ordinary in fact quite poor.
I had a daiquiri and it was plain, and my gin and tonic just came in a high tumbler there were no little extras such as a nice glass or dried orange segment.
The price and them being ordinary let you down
Thank you for the wonderful customer service, for giving us the table in the corner over Tower bridge, that was a stunning surprise for me and my partner! We really appreciate the tour in the pool area. Hope to be back soon!
Great experience, very nice atmosphere and amazing view!
I took my best mate here for her 40th birthday drinks, we orderred champagne and the service was just what I expected from this place. Magomed the Bar Supervisor was charming and made us feel very welcome.
Absolute rubbish apart from the view. Over crowded money making novelty. Full of idiots not interested in the view or the space but taking selfies with flash endlessly. Go once never return, should be wonderful but it isn’t.
Disappointing service despite a gorgeous setting. I attentive wait staff with strictly enforced time limits.
Booked in advance and we still unable to have a window seat. We were told the tables would be changed to ensure everyone has time at a window seat, while spending an hour there we still not to spend any time in a window seat. On arrival there was a couple and group of friends sat in window seats, they were not asked to swap within the time we spent there and the group of friends had already had a bottle of wine.
Beautiful setting for a date night, level of ambiance music was perfect, staff was very friendly
From Gong you get a fantastic view over London. But, considering the prices and the poor service, it´s not really worth it. We didn't get any water, or anything to eat our food with and the staff seamed to be more interesting in chatting with each other than to serve their guests.
Very poor service, even before we were welcomed the staff was warning us about the minimum spend policy despite this being already clearly mentioned on the reservation page. After an hour we were already presented with our bill without the possibility of reordering...
The service was surprisingly poor. The staff were either arrogant, unhelpful or not trained. Wont visit again. A great view but you want good service too! It's a shame that the staff let Gong down.
The view is wonderful by night, but the service is not very good et prices are not fair
Requested a drink that wasn’t on the menu, barman gave me an incorrect drink. It hadn’t been on my table more than 3mins when the manager came across to explain the mistake (unprompted), apologised, and offered me the replacement. Great service, and the incorrect drink tasted great so I got a bonus beverage from the mix up!
You get the view / you pay minimum £30 per cover. For that I'd have expected 'sensational' - The service was perfunctory and there are better Martinis to be had in London (but not with a fantastic panorama). If its cloudy or raining I would cancel, it doesn't get by on the product alone.
Mouldy olives and rude female staff on arrival who were looking down on us and were patronising. Our water however, his name began with an M i think! He was lovely and made the experience great.
Great views though.
Although the view was spectacular and the bar was lovely, the drinks were very very over-priced, which would put me off, there is no need to charge £70 for a bottle of wine.
Very noisy hen party was very rowdy and noisy, not what you want to be sat next to when you have paid £30 to get in and £70 for a drink!
Amazing views. But even with a reservation we were not seated at window in the beginning. Kind of like any walk in guest. This didn’t feel right for someone who had been made reservation since several weeks.
Excellent and worth every penny. Birthday treat for my wife and she can’t stop going on about it. We have already said it will be a part of all trips to London now!
I would recommend for the views but the music was too loud lights were too dim and the drinks overpriced
View is obviously good but this is the only plus here Service was very sub par and cocktails were too sweet and badly balanced, which at £30 a go is not what you’d expect. Won’t be rushing back
Went to Gong for drinks on bonfire night, unforgettable experience! Will return soon!
We had a lovely time at Gong on Tuesday evening. The waiter that served us was extremely friendly and helpful. He was also very polite.
The views are amazing. As it was bonfire night we did see a lot of fireworks which was lovely.
Drink prices are a little on the high side but we will definitely be back.
