We had a very pleasant evening, however we found the service to be a little slow (we had been there over an hour before we had our starter course, although to be fair there had been a steam of amuse bouche). The menu was very fishy and I agree with other reviewers that the bringing of the uncooked ingredients to... More

It was our first visit and we did not know about the recent change in ownership. We had the tasting menu and were impressed by the evident work which had gone into many of the dishes, which generally looked very attractive. However, we thought the menu was a little unbalanced, with more fish than meat and then two courses using... More

We visited The Square 3weeks in of new chef and menu. We tried a 9 course menu and it was a journey of discovery of fresh and aromatic flavours. The signature dish was the foi gras with sweet flavours. The desserts were magic and special. The service was impeccable and friendly. Finally, an amazing sommelier that showed knowledge and expertise.

Five star restaurant with impeccable service and mouthwatering combinations of fine food. We went as a treat for our birthdays and we were not disappointed. We had the tasting menu and it was delicious.

Who would have thought that celery could be so good. We started out with a celery dish that had sponge, foam, gel, and the best tasting celery thing I've ever had in my life. I mean, come on, celery? Really? Yes! The rest of the 6 course tasting menu had amazing presentation, and amazing flavors. I ate things that usually... More

This was a our first lunch in London. I heard many good reviews about this restaurant and we were certainly not disappointed. The crust on the plaice was so delicious, and I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed the mackerel as it is usually very fishy. My wife's duck was so tender and perfectly medium rare.

First visit 7.11.16. The Square is very comfortable and refined. Of course it is priced accordingly, but fortunately it does deliver. The cuisine is outstanding. On this occasion the crab appetizer and Dover sole were excellent. The wine list may struggle to deliver many values but the selection is quite deep. The only knock is the service. Not only are...

I went for a midweek lunch with a friend - only had 70 mins before I would have to rush off for meetings. The restaurant coped well with food delivery- not dumping everything on me too quick but just quick enough. The food was excellent - lunch menu was 3 courses plus a pre appetiser - fish then duck then... More

The Square restaurant in London's ultra-smart Mayfair has four right angles: great food, wines, service, and location. The dining room is a refined space where you can seal a deal, celebrate a triumph, or simply dine incredibly well. Chef Patron Philip Howard has earned a pair of Michelin stars for his unique French-inspired haute cuisine using impeccable ingredients to create dishes capable of both gossamer elegance and vivid boldness all in the same bite. Everything is superb, though we particularly recommend the herb-crusted saddle of lamb with shallot purée, artichokes, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The Square's wine list (wine bible, really) runs to 80 pages of the world's finest.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
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.
