Different and well-presented Austro-Hungarian influenced cuisine with attentive service and the occasional celebrity to spot.

Been here a few times and the one reason I come back is purely because the service is perfect - just what you'd expect. Breakfast is spot on, and the ideal way to start the day in London, be it before a business meeting or before a days shopping!

I was sort of led to believe that this was a slightly more up market version of The Wolesley.. It isn't really. Excellent service... good food, but a little run of the mill, the ice cream coupe was the best bit. There is a nice buzz. I liked it but I'm not blown away and I wanted to be. It's... More

My sister and I took our parents here for breakfast. A lovely atmosphere, impeccable service and food that was wonderful. Our waiter was funny, engaging and attentive, couldn't fault him or the food.

Pleasant surprise dropping in without a reservation recently. Food well prepared and good selection of Eastern European food. You can go light or heavy with traditional, well prepared choices. Service could be better, but if you are not in a rush you will certainly be satisfied.

Sunday Lunch for three : almost faultless except that my wife thought her liver was undercooked. She exchanged it for beef and Yorkshire pud and as I did, thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice bit of beef and cooked as per my request. My Daughter had Breem which She said was excellent. Service was faultless and professional. Very nice surroundings and extremely... More

Wonderful Viennese style restaurant from the time of the last Emperor, Franz Josef. Buzzy mixed crowd, great location, airy and stylish decor and the food is just great! Service is slick and anonymous like it should be. Lots of sausage and schnitzel, super Austrian wine list, and even if you don't like your scoff and drink all 'mittel europa', there's... More

My wife and I were taking a wander looking for somewhere for breakfast when we came across The Delaunay. We had previously looked at The Delaunay on Trip advisor and thought that we would visit at some point in the future. My wife had pancakes with blueberries which were good and tasty but could have done with more blueberries. I... More

Myself and two friends dined at The Delaunay on Friday night.We were impressed with the whole experience from entering this fabulous building until we left.Food was outstanding and I particularly loved the Kaiser Schmarren,which I have not had in the UK.The service was impeccable without being pretentious at all.The atmosphere in the restaurant was lively and the surroundings splendid.Highly recommended.
