I have been here several times. Incredible building and setting. Staff are generally nice and efficient. Four of us went for Sunday Brunch and it was quite underwhelming. The food just did not seem anywhere near what it was a year ago or so (and...it is not cheap so you expect something decent). I will give one example which is was the pancakes. A year ago (and you will see in most of their own pics) we got 3 fluffy pancakes with plenty of fruit etc etc. It looked and tasted very very good. This year it was three pancakes on a plate with very little else. I so, so regret not taking a pic and comparing to what they 'advertise' vis a vis what we got. Not sure it is a Covid thing but I can't see how it can be. Oh well, will need to think long and hard about returning. Maybe I will take their pancake pic and ask them to replicate and see what happens :-)More

Really loved our evening before Lockdown ... so happy we visited, just delicious! Particular favourite was the iberian pork chargrilled, honestly I have never eaten such a flavourful, tender dish and the secret sauce was both intriguing and inspiring! We'll definitely be back!

We delayed going as we had very mixed reports,we ventured by chance to be outside on a wet Sat afternoon, a charming girl at the reception table on the terrace ushered us to a table, We had the best bloody Mary’s I have had in...London,service was first class as was the food, and the sommelier was both charming and knowledgeableMore

Greeted by an aloof lady who showed us inside as we only wanted a drink. Many staff walked past us and ignored us. Finally the oyster man spoke to us. However, even after he alerted the waitress we never received the menu. She was busy...talking to an attractive man. We left. Maybe if you look wealthy they treat you well here. If average, no. Will not return or recommend. The oyster man was lovely though and good covid measures.More

This is a classic example of a place where the name and buzz excel the experience. The food was nice-enough and the service good but it just didn’t have that extra ‘thing’ you need in London. Also my friend and I were seated side-by-side on...a straight-backed banquette so it was difficult to chat properly during the meal. The crab doughnuts were nice, my devil pizza was nice, my friends fish was nice but it’s not a ‘special occasion’ place and personally, if I wasn’t already in London, I wouldn’t go especially.More

I was very excited about this one and it was ok. If you have an infinite amount of time to explore London then sure go visit, they made a good burger and delicious crab beignets and there are some really beautiful people to watch. But...if you have a finite amount of time, maybe skip this one. I would be disappointed if this was one of my only dinners out in London. When we arrived there was no host to be found to show us to our table, just beautiful servers buzzing around looking up occasionally and buzzing off, leaving us in that situation you don’t ever want to be in awkwardly standing next to someone’s table. Those beautiful guests probably didn't want me hovering over them either. This place is threesome friendly: appetizers and bread were served in portions of 3, they do offer to make things in 4, for an additional charge. The wine list was not inspiring but my 17£ cocktail was delicious and strong. I did appreciate not being rushed out in a post-COVID world but it took a long time to get anyone’s attention for more water, and then for the bill and then to pay this delayed bill. That being said, everything we ordered was good, cocktails though very expensive were delicious and I didn’t leave hungry.More

there was 4 guest in our party and the waiter bought 3 slices of bread, that should have been a sign how the rest of the evening was going to play out. we had a chicken in batter starter which was pink and bloody ...i...have never known chicken to be cooked rare!!!. so 2 average fatty rib eye steaks ,one filet which was good and tiny portion of pork washed down with a malbec and cabernet (not the most expensive wines .)...no coffee or dessert only £440 what a overpriced overrated experience, i have eaten at Zuma's, nobu, the maderin etc so the price of my meal is not a problem when i receive good food and this was not what i experiencedMore

This was my first visit to this famous eatery. I was very disappointed. It was a small limited menu.... due to COVID. Why? What difference does COVID make to the amount of food you cook. All the other restaurants I have recently eaten in are...not doing that. Anyway, that aside the service was very good. Ambience lovely. But food average. I had a rib eye steak it was nice but no more. Two of our party had the special ( Brisket ) and said it was tough. So sent it back. They handled that very well and quickly replaced with ribeye. Chips were ok no other veg available. Deserts were again ok, but not as nice as the menu suggested. ( the deserts were complimentary as compensation.) All in all it was supposed to be a very special occasion and it wasn’t. It’s a celebrity haunt and I think it’s a bit of the ‘ emperor’s new clothes.’ I won’t be back. There are many more special restaurants in London to choose from.More

Marylebone
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

Don’t know but would not think it would be encouraged. Their selection excellent and for this type of place not overpriced.
