Description: "Listed in Tattlers restaurant guide 2007 under the Best of British section, Butlers Restaurant is part of the Chesterfield Hotel just off Berkley Square in the heart of Mayfair. The décor of rich reds and greens with English oil paintings is perfect for romantic dinners as well as being superb for discreet business meetings. The Sunday lunch in Butler’s restaurant is still a firm favourite, where you can enjoy succulent rib of beef from the carving trolley or a delightful trio of crème brulée. Staff are friendly in a relaxed yet formal atmosphere. What’s cooking? Modern British fare such as calves liver and bacon with caramelised shallots and mash potato or whole Dover sole grilled and served with sauce hollandaise, witch is famed for being the best in London. Some real old time tempters for desert such as sticky toffee pudding, honeycomb ice cream, butterscotch cheese cake, all made by their own pastry chef."

“Ambiance, service, food-excellent”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

I have stayed at the Chesterfield Hotel previoulsy this time however not staying but using the Butler's Restaurant.
Initially had a drink in the Bar-excellent friendly service, choice of gins.
In the restaurant we were mainly served by a Hungarian waiter (Sinbad?) whose English was excellent. he was friendly, helpful, great sense of humour.
The food was well presented, the quality and taste of the food was excellent and the pace of the service just correct for the occasion.
We both thoroughly enjoyed the whole expereince and felt the ambiance, the service and the food were well above average.

“Best afternoon tea I've had yet!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

The staff were so attentive from the moment we sat down. The setting was very English tea party and our waiter was incredibly friendly and helpful giving us lots of information about the teas.

The sandwiches and cake was incredible and being able to request more of what we wanted was an added bonus! A group of 6 girls spent almost a while afternoon there and not one we're we rushes, we were told to take our time and the tea and cake just kept flowing. One of the best ways to spend an afternoon.

I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone.
