Oblix is a cool place to while a way a few hours with some cocktails and the view. I didn't eat but almost wished I had as the food looked really appealing, it's a deli type lunch that's set out on the counter when you walk in. View of course is amazing, and we were lucky enough to grab a table by the window.
The bartender was really sweet and got my friend to try her cocktail before he made as he was worried that the pineapple and Mezcal might be a bit too strong for her (clearly didn't know her! ;)) I had the Pear and blueberry cocktail and my friend also had a caramel and banana cocktail which was to.die.for. Worth a visit.

I was horrified to hear my sister had an allergic reaction at this restaurant despite warning the waiters about her nut allergy. After being incredibly ill, throwing up in the toilets the whole night and later complaining - the staff showed little sign of being apologetic, claimed it wasn't a nut allergy and offered no sign of any form of refund on the night. Clearly this place has little respect for their customers with dietary requirements, and even less customer service attention. I would definitively not recommend this place based on their poor response particularly given it's a luxury bar and promotes itself to having attention to detail. After asking for a refund, they said they could only refund 2 potential dishes they thought had nuts in, and after further complaining they blamed the issue on my sister not wanting a full refund. I think those in the customer service department need to pull their head out of their arse, and show a sign of empathy.

We went to the lounge, it was without doubt the coolest place in London. Whilst we were there Jamie Cullum came in a gave an impromptu appearance, he stayed and played for over an hour. The views are spectacular, the food was good (we opted for a table full of starters which worked perfectly for us). The service was spot on, friendly without being intrusive.

I have visited the Oblix lounge on two occasions now. Both visits were in the space of a couple of months of each other with two different groups of friends.

On both occasions we were made to feel unwelcome and uncomfortable by most of the staff. We were looked down on and frowned upon even though there was no reason why they should have done.

To be honest, the drinks are overpriced, there was no atmosphere, in fact, all the lounge has to offer is the view. That's the reason why I've given 1 star!

Anyone visiting London and wants to see the sights, either pay a little bit more and go to The View at the top of the Shard or take a leisurely lunch cruise on board Bateaux London!

Booked this for a friends surprise birthday dinner for 4 in June 2013, and it opened in May 2013. Was told we would have the table for 2 hours from 6-8pm. Turned up early and were shown to the bar to wait for our table, on entry views were amazing especially as it was sunny. Sat on the sofas sipping cocktails. Waitresses dressed very nicely, waiters very smart too. At 6.10 had to remind the staff that our table should be ready to which we were taken immediately, right by the window so we could see the view.
Wasn't too busy at this time and we had a lovely waiter called who was attentive throughout our meal and who got a very nice tip ;-)
We were told that the portions were big enough to share between two but they were actually enough for one person so we had to order more. Crab cakes were small but delicious and the mains were again more tastier than expected. The halibut was lovely as was the lobster especially since they already take the meat out of the shell for you. Desserts were gorgeous coconut cake type thing with mango and passion fruit with basil sorbet which was not to my taste so left the sorbet on the plate. Unfortunately due to safety reasons they could not use the bday cake we had bought or the candles which is understandable as they were sparklers and we hadn't informed them before. But they put a candle in the dessert for my friend anyway at request.
Started to get busier around 7 pm but we were not rushed and actually stayed past 8pm maybe as they did didn't have a booking following us.
Bill for four people came to £250 so not cheap and included 3 cocktails as only one person drinks so £250 didn't include a lot of alcohol.
Overall would def go back for a special occasion due to the price but really enjoyed the food surprisingly and the views. Waiters took photos of us and spent time attending to our questions about menu.
