the whole experience was chaotic, not the relaxed Sunday brunch we were hoping for. Staff were really stretched, table not set properly, cooked food cold, chairs uncomfortable. Not worth the extortionate cost. Not looked after at all.

We ate here as a group of 4 on a last minute whim after some cocktails in the adjoining bar. The staff were very accommodating and had a table ready for us within a few minutes. The large, open dining room has your potential dinner on display in chillers or as a standalone fish display. Reassuring and appetite whetting! We... More

Taken as a guest. I could see the prices WOW! The food is all displayed in fridges and cooked in the open plan kitchen which is part of the restaurant experience. I should say that the food was good but cannot see how they can justify the prices charged.

Food is expensive but expected from a central London restaurant, let alone one in 5* hotel. But steak was beautifully cooked to perfection, side dishes generous portions and all mouth watering.

I've been to Mayfair Kitchen twice and I must say - it's truly amazing. First time I went together with my girl friends in August, we were all more than happy with our visit.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
