This restaurant offers an excellent service and the staff are extremely hospitable and accommodating. We went for dinner and although quite expensive this makes a great choice for a special occasion. The creativity of the presentation is something really quite wonderful and hard to beat. Will definitely be visiting again!

Set in a beautiful building on Conduit St, Sketch offers several restaurants and bars. The Lecture Room & Library, with 2 Michelin stars, is a great place for a great dinner. It is little expensive, but a great place in a wonderful location.

First visit to 'Sketch' on Conduit Street in London. Wasn't sure exactly what to expect but had heard some great recommendations so were really looking forward to having dinner here and weren't disappointed in anyway at all! On arriving we were met by a charming young man, didn't get his name unfortunately except that he wore a light grey suit?... More

Introduction: I have been to the Sketch on several occasions ranging from business, anniversaries and private over the last couple of years. The Sketch received a negative review in the Times which I cannot understand. Reception: always meticulous. There is a warm welcome and guests are accompanied from the reception to the table. The Place: Mayfair has a fair share... More

This is not a every day restaurant but a real treat. We went for the tasting menu with wine pairing and were given some mind blowing dishes especially the scallops and lobster bisque. The staff are all very professional, attentive without being intrusive, passionate and engaging. The setting is also very beautiful. It felt a real event and was a... More

The top tier restaurant in Sketch, a design "institution" in London and beyond its cities' limits, won't disappoint the open minded visitor. Each detail here is thought through, the food very solid, but not the main actor; this is the setting surrounding you and the crowd coming here. Don't miss your chance to stroll around the house before or after... More

I took my husband here as an anniversary present and it delivered in every way. The service was impeccable and the food looked and tasted stunning. Being pregnant I was worried about the menu but they sat me down then explained exactly what they would be changing and that I need not to worry, they absolutely could not do enough... More

A second visit to Sketch Lecture Room & Library this week for a dinner sitting. I came here earlier in the year, again for dinner and I think I was wowed by the place and theatre but was not entirely enamoured by the food. On that visit we had the tasting menu, where every course came with at least three... More

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.
