SquareMeal Review of Northbank

silver award


Crowned by a “gem” of a terrace, Northbank serves up a panorama of London that reflects modern-day developments, the Tate Modern, Millennium Bridge and all. Mind you, the view is equally appealing inside, where booth seating and dressed-up tables provide the backdrop for a contemporary menu that makes much of its Cornish connections. The county’s award-winning Yarg cheese appears in a tart flavoured with saffron, and there’s a terrine of rabbit and foie gras, pointed up with raw fennel and vermouth cream. Maritime hotspots such as Falmouth Bay and Helford provide much of the seafood on offer (monkish in a Thai green curry, say), while Devon Red beef is a cross-border interloper (try the deliciously tender brisket in a clear parsley broth). Desserts such as hot fudge sundae also hit the spot. A selection of mead cocktails hammers home the Cornish theme, and “it’s all in the best possible taste”.

My Xmas works meal was totally ruined by the staffs unwillingness to pull a group of over 20 other dinners up about their disgraceful behaviour! They were sat directly behind us for 2 hours and behaved like disgusting drunken football hooligans/louts throughout the entire time! At no point did any of the staff attempt to cool this behaviour down and the staff became stroppy when I asked them to deal with the issue! This is not a football café or a pub! The staff was grossly unprofessional in letting this happen and I told them so! This was not a little bit of Xmas high jinx, it was constant loud shouting, screaming, banging on tables etc...for a solid two hours and the staff did nothing! ruined our meal, which wasn't cheap either! Made worse by rude staff attitude when I complained so very unprofessional! Will never go back here and would not recommend it either! pfft!

Had lunch the Thursday before Christmas, the staff were very friendly and attentive, we both had fish of the day which was halibut and very tasty, the puddings were also great quality - the service was fast but not too fast so ideal for a client lunch and great views over the Thames.

I have visited this restaurant many times previously and was impressed by the food. On my last visit I was very disappointed with the food being presented to me. I had prebooked and read the online menus before attending. On their website it states there is a choice of the a la carte menu, a set menu and two Christmas set menus. When asked for the menus I was told that I could only order from the a la carte menu and if I wanted the set menu I needed to have pre ordered this. I was not advised this when I prebooked. I ordered the crab tian for starters,, the cod and cannelon for main course, and the cheeseboard for dessert. On arrival I also had an irish coffee. All three courses were served cold and tasted very bland, even the coffee was cold. The fish is extremely salty and there was absolutely no taste to the veg, they all tasted the same. As for the cheeseboard the fruit bread is served toasted and tasted burnt and the crackers were so bland they tasted like thin cardboard. My partner ordered the duck salad which was not bad but she wouldn't have it again, the fish of the day for main course which was served whole and just placed on a plate with no topping or some sort of decoration and was full of black stuff as it was not cleaned and for dessert she had the blueberry pavlova with peanut butter milkshake (overly sweet & sickly). We also shared two side dishes of kale & almond salad (bland and tasteless), and the herb mash which again tasted bland with no hint of herbs and seemed to have been overly pureed and tasted like something you would give a baby. I also find it odd that even though I was sat directly opposite the kitchen there was no smell of food being cooked from the kitchen and fresh flavours being used. I would advise you not to waste your money and possibly try a much better restaurant on the other side of the river which myself I will be doing next time.
