Classy understated and unobtrusive service of a beautiful meal with my beloved made this a birthday meal to cherish. Breakfast the next morning was slow and leisurely. To quote Mr Schwarzenegger, "I'll be back".

My husband, our daughter and myself went for a New Year's Eve dinner at this intimate, very romantic and very elegant restuarant. Being New Year's Even I was not expecting the food to be good but not of such excellent level (thank you to the cooks). My canadian lobster was divine and my husbands white truffle risotto even more so.... More

Fantastic Atmosphere. I came here for a business dinner and got tempted by the white truffle linguine. It was absolutely incredible and I would highly recommend this place a date spot!

We are locals and go to Blakes frequently. We love going there because of the food and the cocktails and also because of Andres (manager) and his team. They really add to the experience- they are friendly, professional and fun. The food is delicious and we tend to get a selection of the smaller dishes, including the cheese soufflé (which... More

My husband, Bert Fields, wakes up every day of his life concerned about what he's going to eat for dinner. One of his reasons to go to London is simple. We stay at Blake's and eat there every night. We think it's simply the best restaurant in the world. It's also super romantic. Wherever you stay in London, go to... More

We had breakfast and 2 lunches here while staying at Hotel. Our young waitress on each occasion was helpful and charming. The full English breakfast was great, and the lunch items, gnocchi, seared tuna, crispy Sushi salad were really well crafted and presented. Very casual and relaxed,and a clever hand in the kitchen. The best part of the Hotel.

OK… so this review is a little old…. my husband (then boyfriend) took me here years ago and I still remember the evening like it was yesterday. Fabulous room, very opulent, the service was very attentive. At the time, they gave the lady (diner) a menu without any prices!!! Fantastic food….

edible, but not very tantilising, and no wine list available to chose a decent glass of wine with my meal.

Came to Blake’s for a hen do (around 10 women) and we were really well accommodated for- service was not too intrusive but very knowledgeable about the menu and super friendly. We had afternoon tea (and Champaign) in the Chinese room. Would definitely recommend!
