Walking in to the restaurant takes you back in time to the good old days . Buzzy noisy crowded . Good old fashioned homely cooked food .

This was a catch up with a friend evening who also likes nice food good service etc. This restaurant is one of the nicest I've been to in terms of excellent service from start to finish with very well flavoured good ingredients food being served without the snootiness that can sometimes ruin a nice meal you've planned and made time...

This was our second trip to the Delaunay which we only discovered last month. Both times were for family birthdays and both were excellent experiences. The service is impeccable, the food is beautifully presented and delicious. Last night I had the sea bass on a bed of fennel and endives and it was cooked to perfection. The only criticism I... More

We had breakfast here and dinner. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious. They make the best croissants in all of London. Their coffee also is sublime. The wait staff is very friendly. Dinner was good, but not over the top, but still a good meal. Definitely recommend for breakfast and their hours are great 7 am during the week and 8... More

As a fan of the Wolseley, I decided to try the Delaunay and was not at all disappointed. The Delaunay is definitely more intimate than the Wolseley but still offers the same impeccable service and the food was faultless. I love the charm of these restaurants and the feeling you get of 'stepping back in time'. Elegant, classy and a... More

So the Delaunay is a firm favourite--it's a lovely place to visit, particularly before or after a night at the theatre. It's the sister restaurant of The Wolseley, but feels much more intimate, and actually the food and service is better here. Like the Wolseley, tables are arranged around the edge of the restaurant with a central cluster in the... More

Great setting to take guests or relax. Good service, Good menu selection, nice atmosphere, nice desert selections. You can get a Lobster roll for £18, which is good value considering Food Markets are doing this for £12. Pleasantly surprised that you can still find decent service a good food in London. The restaurant also has a sister cafe next door,... More

Everything about the Corbyn and King empire oozes class and competence. I had been to all the others so was looking forward to Delaunay. The Room is beautiful and ornate and as usual there is the inner circle and the outer :). The menu is very Austrian and I was dleighted to get some delicious Almdudler in London! We had... More

We visited for a pre-theatre dinner. Service was excellent - staff knew we were going to the the theatre next door and everything came very promptly. The dining room is beautiful, the atmosphere great and the menu varied. My dining companions expressed deep satisfaction with their choices of rib eye, steak tartare and chicken schnitzel but I was not so... More

It is a beautiful space, and it has a nice atmosphere. We ate here for breakfast, the food was hit and miss. The English breakfast had greasy, salty bacon, and barely warm baked beans, it was not the best. On the other hand, the omelette Arnold Bennett was excellent. At £25 per head, there are better places for breakfast in... More
