It was as if we had stepped back in time. Dark wood. Tile floors. It had the atmosphere of the way things use to be. Service was outstanding. Excellent choices on the menu. Large wine list. Also, we could talk. The restaurant was not loud.

Cosy, friendly, great food and service. What more could you ask for. I was introduced to Wiltons by a friend. It is his favourite place and I can see why.

I had heard that this was a great restaurant but it did not meet my expectations. I had an early dinner and found the service a bit slow. My seafood was Ok but nothing special.

I went here a couple of weeks ago with a very good friend of mine. The service is absolutely top notch and everyone is very attentive. I had sole meuniere and the famous truffle mash and it was cooked to perfection. No criticisms here!

Very classy and it was good to have experienced it but to expensive to go there regularly. The lobster bisque was superb and the service impeccable.

Old world charm in one of the classiest restaurants I've ever seen is how I would describe my experience having lunch today at Wilton's. Luckily my associate eats here all the time and we were seated at a booth in the main dining area. This is a very clubby place and it could have been the 1960s and 1970s the... More

This is probably one of my favourite dining places in London. Fabulously old-fashioned with a sommelier and discreet atmosphere. I was celebrating my birthday and we had been given a booth which is comfortable and private. Starter was the soufflé, followed by a lobster Neuberg. My husband had the avocado crab starter with cod to follow. He said he'd never... More

For years the superb quality of this restaurant has been maintained. The food and service are outstanding. It's expensive but you get what you pay for. The mixed oyster starter is a treat. Dover Sole always the best. Enjoy!

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
