This is an expensive restaurant serving food that tastes re-heated and is cold when it arrives at the table. The sole, which two of our party ordered, was a dry as cardboard. The roast potatoes were similar to the sole. I can't think why Oliver Peyton restaurants are thought of as good - he should go and taste his own... More

The restaurant is in the glazed-in courtyard of the house and looks spectacular. It's a lovely place to meet friends and relax whilst looking at the stunning Collection. One half is a coffee shop and the other a proper restaurant. We had booked lunch in the restaurant half and the food was delicious. The staff are efficient and charming without... More

This is a beautiful setting in the covered courtyard of the wonderful building which houses the Wallace Collection. It is pricey but worth it for a coffee and sit down, as the collection is overwhelming unless taken in small chunks and one needs a rest. The lunch menu is good and staff attentive and apparently mostly French.

The restaurant of the Wallace Collection is superb. It was presumably a courtyard at one time which has been glazed over letting a great deal of light into the area. We were quickly seated. The waiting staff were friendly and efficient. The lunch menu is not extensive, but what is there is very good. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals... More

The Wallace Collection itself is amazing. My review is purely on the restaurant attached to the Wallace collection. This is a glorious space and I have enjoyed coming here for years. However, calling in for Cream Tea on Saturday afternoon at about 3.30 we found the service totally unacceptable. There were numerous empty tables when we arrived, some set for... More

My review concerns the quality of the table service in this restaurant, not the Collection. My friend and I visited this restaurant on 28 November 2014. We were quickly seated by a waitress and provided with menus. Being 4 pm the restaurant was not that busy and as there was no shortage of floor staff, we anticipated that our order... More

There comes a time in every visit to a great art collection where the art starts to overstretch the available brain capacity. At this point you need to stop and rest, preferably with a cup of tea and, too often, find yourself consigned to lowest common denominator municipal cafeteria. Not here. The Wallace restaurant in the museum courtyard is thoroughly... More

Lunch on a Monday - quite busy . . . nice atmosphere. Tables not too close together. Imaginative menu - fair prices. Plenty of servers on hand, - but they didn't all seem to quite know what they were supposed to do. Maybe it was a training day? The food took some time to arrive, but it was attractively served....

We had lunch here while seeing the collection. Service was good overall one weak waiter who took the order and was a poor salesman for the food and the second man who cleared and did the bill was charming, friendly and efficient. Food was delicious but portions starter size with main course price tag. I would go again when feeling... More

Like other reviewers I was disappointed with the cafeteria style tables and chairs. On arrival the female maitre'd asked if we wanted the café or the restaurant. The menus weren't on show so I asked to see some so we could decide. The restaurant menu looked interesting but we wanted something lighter so chose the café. Lots of waiters milling... More
