Average Food, Average indifferent service, over priced for what's on offer. Considering the hundreds / thousands of great restaurants in London that are much better than this place, wouldn't bother. The décor also looked very tired. Will not return.

Get a booth or one of the bright seats at the rear, settle back and enjoy. The service may be a bit perfunctory at times but the breakfast grub is decent. I wish it was a proper American diner, but even with the added Mayfair pretensions, I still go back.

Had a great Eggs Benedict here! Ate in the rear area which felt trendy and clean. Good service too. Prices were also reasonable for this fashionable spot.

Sadly it is currently closed for mass renovations, really hoping that it comes back even better than before.

We were really looking forward to our meal here, having read good things about Automat in the past, but everything was supremely average. The restaurant itself is a little tired looking, but has a nice design with lots of characterful decoration. We were seated at a table without chairs, which we were left to find ourselves, so not the best... More

The negative experience wasn't helped by the fact my host had really "bigged up" this restaurant from previous experience. I chose the Sea Bream which came with Saffron smashed potatoes. The waiter proactively recommended I chose another type of potato, saying everyone who ordered the Saffron ones sent them back. The only other option was mashed potatoes which I didn't... More

Went here for brunch, ordered ok but were consistently ignored by the staff who seemed to be more interested in chatting or looking out the window then serving any of their customers, waited 15 minutes for the bill before giving up and going to the counter and for an empty restauraunt they can't be bothered to look after the few...

My friends and I (20 of us) came in last Saturday night for dinner with a pre-set menu. When I first walked in, no one bothered to ask if I wanted to check my coat. Once sat down, they didn’t ask if I’d like water/wine which the rest of the table was already drinking. Then a waiter grabbed some other... More

I have been here for Breakfast and Dinner before. I would say that the Breakfast food is better - the pancakes are fantastic, and there is a great atmosphere. The dinner menu, although it looks great, the food isn't the best - which is a shame because of the price of it.

I went to Automat with a work colleague and client on 7th March for lunch and had a very poor experience. Between us, we had three starters, a rib eye steak each, some sides and a bottle of red. All for about £209.00. The service was average and the steaks were thin and fairly fatty. The unacceptable bit, and why... More
