Happened upon the famous Wolseley when walking to the nearby Savoy Hotel. They were full for lunch at first, but when I went back and pleaded with the concierge that we'd come a long way, he kindly found us an elevated position where we could survey the whole restaurant. There was Kate Moss at one table and actor Malcolm McDowell... More

Went for a birthday breakfast having read good reviews. We had booked and were shown to our table. The room is beautiful and has the old English feel to it. We ordered the granola and full English breakfasts. The granola was nice, but the yoghurt was much too thick and it was like eating double cream with the granola. The... More

We ate lunch on a Monday at the Wolseley. We booked the previous Friday via their website, which was painless and worked well. We arrived 15 minutes early and were seated immediately. It was very busy. It is loud in there, as others say here, but all good fun. Some of the waiters seemed very standoffish, but others were very... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here, so busy but excellent service. Hot food could have been warmer, but the chicken and tarragon salad was excellent. The perfect place for a celebration!

Having. I sited the Delaunay previously thought we would try here as part of same group/owner. Very disappointing. Late lunch mid week, seated in bar area, noisy, food lukewarm when served and poorly presented. Such a disappointment. Bill also incorrect which required amendment before paying. Would not recommend, especially given location, expected this to be far better quality.

If you want to go for something special or have a good reason to celebrate - that's the place to go! Absolutely amazing decor, the food and drinks spot on, great staff. I couldn't ask for more.

I heard a lot but never had a chance to dine in Wolseley . This time was lucky but with advance booking only. Unforgettable experience and lovely food . The staff were polished and service was great.

A friend and I booked breakfast for 10am on a Friday morning in August. Although we had booked I had trepidations that we may have still ended up queuing, my fears were unfounded. We were efficiently booked in and led to our table. To my mind, the room is beautiful, like stepping back in time. We had English breakfast tea... More

A friend and I visited for lunch during the week and the position of the restaurant near Green Park made it a perfect spot not just for us but it seems an array of celebrities! There is much on offer from the menu making it quite difficult to decide what to have (it all looks so good) we settled on... More
