Service was very good. Drinks are fantastic. Food could be better. It isn't Michelin star.

This certainly isn't the first bar I think of when it comes to sky high locations with views but I'm really happy I found it. Reservations are plentiful and unlike its neighbour Sky Garden, Iris bar is small and quiet so it's perfect for a date night or small group. The views are equally as nice as other locations and the cocktail menu is decent. Expect to pay £13+ for a cocktail and £50+ for a bottle of wine.

Just the place to go to unwind and enjoy the spectacular views of the city. The staff were very friendly and attentive. My husband works at the Gherkin and it's very handy to make us a reservation. Have been a few times and it's nice to see different themes everytime we went.

The building itself if breathtaking and being at the very top is a special experience, however there’s not much more to it. The interiors are cheap feat. fake flowers on tables, the uncomfortable plastic furniture makes it look like a museum cafe/canteen. The staff is quite inattentive - took active effort to get the bill. The cocktails are overly sweet and lack any sort of complexity which would make paying £12.50 and over for one worth it. A nice place to pop in for a quick cup of coffee, take in the views and go, however wouldn’t pick for an occasion.

It's currently (early July 2018) doing a soft launch as an actual restaurant and bar, as opposed to a private club which is sometimes open to the public. Amazing all round: food, service, views. You have to pay a high price for all of this, but if you can afford it, it's certainly worth it for a special occasion.
