Sketch is a very trendy and theatrical London venue but it is not pretentious. Went for a birthday dinner with my partner. Enjoyed the spectacle of Sketch and enjoyed the food even more. The cheese course was the best I've ever eaten. Service was excellent. The only issue that I had with the experience was the dress code. On Sketch's... More

This restaurant is decorated to the extent of more than amazing. You have to come to see for yourself. Even their design of toilet is spectacular. Food ? Outstanding quality and no wonder it takes weeks in advance to book. Pricy is to be expected but it is worth a try. I liked the set lunch menu.

Haven't been to this place to eat for quite a while and I'd forgot how unique it is. There are various bars which are all quirky/odd in their own way. One is a chincy type of room that does afternoon teas and seems to double up as a full blown bar with DJ in the evening. Another is like a... More

Lovely dining room. Warm opulent and classy. Formal attentive service. Wonderful menu promises a lot and delivers. Maybe a touch over complicated but generally food is well presented and very tasty.

This has to be one of my favourite places anywhere. The service is exceptional, the food (small chic portions, but great even for a big eater like me- i can't complain) is incredible. The flavours, the conception... all add up to an experience which is only matched by the surroundings. Must tries- wage beef, scollops and the cuttle fish with... More

I chose sketch lecture on the recommendation of a friend, and as an introduction to London for one of my best friends new partner. Sketch did not disappoint...from the confirmation of the booking to the reminder the day before, to the seating and service, this is what in my mind top tier restaurant service should be like...an overall experience.

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.
