Probably one of the best cuts of beef fillet I have ever had. I dined here with colleagues tonight and experienced something special in the private room. From start to finish everything was simply amazing, I highly recommend this restaurant.

I have been going to the Delaunay for a while now. Brunch, lunch and tea so far. A few times. they are excellent. the menu is eclectic, catering to gf people, with bread. Also there are options from informal to full on. he atmosphere is great, and the surroundings opulent. I really do recommend the Delaunay and plan to continue... More

Ate here for a Sunday Birthday Brunch for my Mum. From point of reservation the staff were really helpful, suggesting which cake I should pre-order for the celebration. As you enter the Delaunay you immediately feel the sense of grandeur and the professionalism of the waiting staff. We were given a great table for a large party, prime position of... More

Visited The Delaunay for breakfast on my birthday with family and friends. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and the staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. We all ordered different dishes off the menu - it was actually really hard to choose and we were very impressed with the amount of options on the menu as it was only breakfast.... More

I have had the pleasure of visiting the Delaunay a few times for breakfast now, as well as it's sister restaurant the wolsey. Both are fantastic establishments but Delaunay has the edge. The menu for breakfast is quite comprehensive and no matter how fussy an eater you are, you'll find something that you like! The menu is also quite reasonable,... More

The evening was very pleasant and the service very attentive. I had the Carpaccio to start with and then the Scallops and Prawns for the main course. We had some nice champagne and a coffee to finish off. Being half German and half Austrian I should have really tried their Schnitzel. Maybe next time? The bill came to £160 which... More

We have eaten here twice in two weeks before Wolf's Hall and Bring up the Bodies. Superb, attentive and warm service on each occasion and they really do take care of their customers. The food was equally delicious though the Plaice goujons is enormous. Well done indeed and a great way to start an excellent evening at the theatre

Forget Balthazar, this is where it's at for breakfast. Menu is un-flashy, but superbly executed - a trait too often forgotten. Great coffee too.

I reviewed The Delaunay about one year ago and must say this time the issue we had with reception was not repeated. This visit the whole evening went seamlessly. Waiting staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Having enjoyed my choices so much last time I ordered the identical dishes and was not disappointed. My other five dining... More

Whenever we go to Stratford, we go to Lambs. There was never a similar place in London - until now. This was a family outing to two different shows - both matinee performances to fit with child-minding requirements. So we went to The Delaunay for Afternoon Tea and it was superb. We loved the Austrian slant and the savouries. Various... More
