The Square restaurant in London's ultra-smart Mayfair has four right angles: great food, wines, service, and location. The dining room is a refined space where you can seal a deal, celebrate a triumph, or simply dine incredibly well. Chef Patron Philip Howard has earned a pair of Michelin stars for his unique French-inspired haute cuisine using impeccable ingredients to create dishes capable of both gossamer elegance and vivid boldness all in the same bite. Everything is superb, though we particularly recommend the herb-crusted saddle of lamb with shallot purée, artichokes, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The Square's wine list (wine bible, really) runs to 80 pages of the world's finest.

We went as a group of 4 and the whole evening was delightful from start to finish. The service was perfect. Spot on for this calibre of restaurant and friendly too. One of our diners left the choice of his meal to the waiter and not only did he not play it safe but he ended up with what we... More

I visited with a friend for the set price three course lunch. The quality of food was exceptional and its hard to explain the depth of flavour in every dish. Next time I am in the area I will try to revisit

I went here for a team dinner and we had a set menu. Despite this they did a great job catering for a few of us with special dietary requirements and the food was delicious. My favourite was dessert which was started with a pre dessert to refresh the palate, then for actual dessert I had sorbet followed by a... More

Great Service, Exquisite Food... there isn't really anything else I can add! My wife and I visited for our 10th wedding anniversary, having recently had a bad experience at a "wareing" establishment, we decided to give The Square a chance. From the moment we arrived until the last minute we left, we were treated like we were the only people... More

Food looked... More

I liked this restaurant, very nice setting, open, fresh and not too formal. Great location, excellent service and the food was very good. The set menus are creative and seasonal, my squid appetiser and venison were very good, rhubarb soufflé was the best though. Michelin 1 star perhaps, but not 2.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
