Booked by telephone in the morning, with a friendly and cheery voice,upon arrival was told the booking system was down, but the lady remembered my by name, and couldn't have been nicer. Very nice starter and mains for the five of us, and generally unobtrusive service, but don't keep asking how things were, please. Not a cheap meal , but... More

Dinner on Saturday evening at the Wallace was a pleasant affair, and it was difficult to understand why the place was so empty. (We spoke to the maitre d' after our meal, and he said Friday nights are very popular, but it's harder to get people in on a Saturday.) The menu was an original display of mostly Mediterranean inspired... More

Have eaten at the Wallace on several occasions and yesterday was the best. Excellent fish starter and very good lamb cooked nicely pink (plenty of it too). Loaned-in young manager from the National Gallery is clearly making a difference. Great ambience under the glass atrium but not a venue for hot summer days NB. under-floor heating makes for a comfortable... More

I came for afternoon tea with friends and was very disappointed. The service was possibly some of the worst I've ever experienced, miserable, rude unhelpful staff. Because some of us shared a plate tower our scones were put on the same plate which was fine, but when we asked for more jam and cream (because we were supposed to have... More

We were mum, dad and teenage daughter. Late brunch in a huge space. The restaurant is in a glass covered atrium 20m high and 40m X 40m. Scrambled egg, avocado, boiled eggs, eggs Benedict, muffins, cakes, toast, fruit juices, teas and coffees etc. Pleasant space inside The Wallace Collection (free), which is worth a visit. Most famous for The Laughing... More

Had a delicious and leisurely lunch here with friends before taking a guided tour of the Wallace collection. The setting is charming and the two/three course set menu offers good value (although the choice is fairly limited on the set menu). Everyone in our small party thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service was excellent too! Highly recommend the place!

We visited the restaurant as we had looked online for somewhere different to have an afternoon coffee or tea. The restaurant itself is a lovely setting in a closed courtyard at the Wallace Museum. We ordered 2 coffees, a tea and 3 lemon drizzle cakes. The coffee was weak but the real disappointment was the cake - it was dry... More

Had a Sunday lunch for 5 adults & 4 children aged 2-10. Exquisite artistic setting - statues and paintings provide a wonderful backdrop in an indoor conservatory setting located in Marylebone (free parking on Sunday with close proximity to Tube). Naturally pricey and some of my party complained about small main proportions. This was not true of my seafood broth... More

Lovely setting for wonderful paintings - and what a display of medieval armour! So sorry it was our last day and time was not our side. First call next time in London.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
