I'm a big fan of the other Galvin around the corner from where I live and was very excited about trying this, the more upscale, version. Galvin at Windows is on the 28th floor (or 27th?) and the first thing that strikes you is quite unsurprisingly the gorgeous views. That alone is worth a lot in my eyes. Key here is to get a table by the window since I get the feeling that you wouldn't have the same experience in the middle area of the restaurant.
Service is absolutely impeccable from the very first minute. The old “attentive but not intrusive” is very much applicable. We both went for fish dishes and were very satisfied, although I wouldn't accentuate the food too much here. It is very good, but I think some people would feel that they've had as good or better at lower prices. That said, you're definitely paying a bit for the fact that you can landmark-spot during dinner. Something I failed miserably at by the way.
To conclude, having been here only twice I'm already happy to call this one of my favourites for finer dining. Sure, it isn't exactly cheap (£75 for the tasting menu, £110 with wine), but given the views, the service and the high quality food, it's definitely worth it.
