Description

Once you have enquired, the Aviary team will be in touch to confirm the booking.

Flock to the top of the capital’s hottest new rooftop destination, Aviary.

Perched on the 10th floor of the new Montcalm Royal London House Hotel in Finsbury Square with enviable views out over the City, leading restaurant and bar operator ETM Group has taken dining to a whole new level with its first sky-high restaurant and terrace bar.

Nestled between the City and Shoreditch, the 6,000 sq ft rooftop dining destination designed by Russell Sage Studio features an impressive central bar which elegantly divides the stylish restaurant area from the opulent bar lounge. The eclectic interiors bring the outdoors in with hanging planters alongside gold drinks cases, plush single seating and relaxed banquettes creating a bright, vibrant vibe. Meanwhile, comfortable lounge seating out on the heated terrace provides spectacular views of some of London’s most iconic buildings.

An array of beautifully crafted cocktails will embrace a botanic theme using natural ingredients such as Manuka honey in a fresh and innovative way. Presented in stylish copper tankards and extra special copper pineapple sharing serves, the unique creations will feature alongside a comprehensive wine and beer list.

You’ll want to head out onto the south-facing terrace for that stunning vantage point, where sweeping views of the city’s skyline will be on offer. With design from the acclaimed Russell Sage Studio, the interiors will be equally impressive (okay maybe not quite) and you’ll be able to pop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner 7 days a week.

Food and setting were great. But the music and pub guests (located about 5 metres away) were far too loud, and staff (especially downstairs) treated us like pub guests rather than diners in a quality restaurant. Visited Aviary on 2018-05-17

Lady on the front door was proabably doing her job it was just the way she adressed us was quite rude. The front of house host was brilliant and so were both our waitresses for the igloo and table. The food was BLOODY AMAZING, probably some of the best i have ever had. Thank you for making my 18th so special. Visited Aviary on 2018-02-10

I booked a space for drinks in the bar area for 6.30pm on a Friday evening and in retrospect I probably didn't need to make a reservation as the bar wasn't that busy. As part of the reservation there was a £500 minimum spend and I felt that this was not organised or well managed as the waiters did not come to the table frequently enough so some guests ended up ordering directly at the bar and a lot of the spend didn't seem to be added towards our minimum spend.

I had booked an igloo for my birthday and very much looking forward to this unique experience. I was very disappointed and upset to turn up at the time of my booking to be told my reservation didn't exist. I booked for the 8.00-9.30pm slot to be told that I was booked in for 6pm. As you can imagine, I was shocked and extremely upset that my evening which was booked around going to the igloo had been ruined. The lady at the front desk was very nice about it and offered us a lounge area, but I was so upset we left. I had been looking forward to celebrating my birthday here and had multiple emails back and forth to the event planners about this booking for at least a month. I have been left feeling completely devastated and embarrassed for my guests who had made an effort to join me for my celebrations Visited Aviary on 2018-01-27

A superb evening! The location, staff, food was amazing and would re moment to friends and definitely will return to Aviary. The only negative point I will make is that I did not particularly enjoy on arrival at the hotel, walking through the bar where pool was being played by some extremely loud men, I did wonder what type of place It was , Visited Aviary on 2017-12-29

We have booked the Palm Room on the 14th December and have pre-ordered set menus. The dinner and the service was good, except the fact that the main meal was served cold. This is a feedback I have received from several guests. As we look forward to make more bookings in your restaurant and we would greatly appreciate if you took this into account for next times. Thank you! Best regards, Aliona Ciorba CMS Distribution Visited Aviary on 2017-12-14

Visited the Aviary on the 8th December, with a reserved Igloo from 8 to 9.30pm for 10 people for birthday drinks. Whilst the location is 5 star, management and oranization has not met our expectations. I arrived at the Montcalm Hotel around 7:40 and waited some of my guests downstairs before we made our way upstairs to the Aviary around 7:50, when about 5 of my guests were arrived. Once upstairs I asked at the reception for my igloo and they took us to an igloo that already had 6 people in it. The waitress thought that those were my guests but they were not. So she asked us to wait there so she would go and check. She never came back. We went back at reception and spoke to the gentlemen who was running and managing the igloo and events that evening. He understood the situation and said that those people would have been asked to leave. I agreed and when made a comment that the igloo should have been ready on our arrival (it was not so pleasant to have my guests standing by recepion waiting), the man looked at the time and said our booking wasn't until 8pm. It was 7:59pm!!!! And they still had to get some people to leave the igloo and also clean it up very quickly and set it up for us... I pointed this out, and he looked at me annoied. We had access to the igloo only at 8:07pm, which is quite a delay when your guests are standing to wait. When I booked I was told the previous group had a 6-7:30pm slot in the igloo, to make sure our igloo would have been ready at 8. An apology would have been appreciated. Instead unfortunately the man has quite some attidute, On the side, waitresses were nice and took care of us. Visited Aviary on 2017-12-08

Lovely environment, beautiful views and delicious food. Overall a great experience and generally the staff were good. However we were made to feel a little uncomfortable by the member of staff who initially welcomed us into the restaurant. This was overridden by the rest of the afternoon, but that was a slightly disappointing start. Visited Aviary on 2017-10-21

Aviary, is a wonderful restaurant with great views and a great atmosphere. The staff go above and beyond. I asked for a special night to propose to my partner, and they pulled out all the stops reserving us a wonderful area on the terrace, a nice spot in the restaurant, and with all the extra little special touches. Thank you for making it a special evening, and special mention to all the staff who helped within the restaurant that evening and to Marie O'Connor who set it all up beautifully, including organising rose petals, and Prosecco in the room on our return. Also of note, we returned the following day for a drink in the daytime and they put on entertainment, with a very talented singer providing a great atmosphere in the daytime too. Andy.

I booked a space for my 30th birthday in Jan 2017 and I had the best time. The cocktails were quirky and the staff were very polite. The venue itself was very upmarket, stunning decor and views but it felt comfortable too. The toilets were pretty great too ha! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

We loved the Aviary. We made a reservation after searching for a long time online. We were a group of 10 for dinner on a Saturday. The group was split in two traveling there and half of the group was 45 minutes late to the reservation. This did not affect our experience nor the attitude of the staff. No one was put off by this minor problem. Food, drinks, and service were impressive and in good balance with each other. I would recommend to anyone visiting London that this was a perfect and fun time out. And I am a foodie myself! Visited Aviary on 2017-09-30
