Real hot ticket. Book in advance. It's breakfast, lunch and dinner. Place owned by people who own Colbert and Paris and London as well as The Wolseley in London. Great Austrian/German specialites like schnitzel. But everything we had was incredible. Good for after theatre, too.

Nice old-fashioned place. Good service. (A bit noisy the big dining hall) Excellent food quality. London prices.

From the moment you turn the corner to enter the restaurant, you know you've arrived at good food. Everything we had was wonderful, & judging from all the famous ppl in dinigroom, they thought same of the food. I guess you can call it modern English with a French twist. But after having been in paris lately, I'd like to... More

Lovely spot for brunch - I would happily come here for the service and the decor alone. Good drinks menu, great food (the Viennese breakfast was an unexpected, but much appreciated, find) - a good spot for a brunch with friends.

Has a late afternoon business meeting. Simply had tea and biscuits but we were still treated like we were spending a fortune. Very good service, nice biscuits and lovely tea. Great for business meetings.

A lovely buzz filled the restaurant but not so loud that we couldn't enjoy our conversation. The food was well presented, delicious and good portions. The service was very good, we weren't hurried at all during the evening

Loved it! Some of the best scrambled eggs I've ever had in relaxed, formal surroundings. I'll definitely visit again soon.

Loved our Saturday brunch at The Delaunay. We had booked in advance but were approx 20 minutes late - we rang and let them know we had been held up and they were extremely helpful, assuring us it it was no problem and there would still be a table for us. When we arrived it was extremely busy but as... More

Pros: Classy, high quality food, drink and service, varied menu, reasonably priced with a selection of cheaper dishes (the currywurst was excellent), walking distance to theatres Cons: none from our visit Conclusion: a high class pre-theatre champagne lunch - couldn't fault it

We went for dinner while staying in London. What a great meal. Everything we ate was excellent. I especially liked the green beans as a side. I also ordered a mint tea at the end of the meal that was amazing. Would definitely recommend!
