I must admit I was a bit tentative to book one of our 33rd anniversary dinners at a restaurant we had never visited before. I was also a bit hesitant as some reviewers had felt it a bit old fashioned and dowdy. I'd like to debunk both of those notions. It is a lovely, subdued, beige toned interior, offering both tables and booths in a layout allowing for comfortable table conversation. The original artwork is fantastic and suits its surroundings. We were escorted to a cozy booth that instantly felt warm and inviting. The Wiltons menu is not extensive but should satisfy most diners' wishes. The staff are very able to answer any and all menu questions. We opted for Colchester oysters and lamb's kidneys as our appetizers. If I closed my eyes as I ate the oysters, I felt as if on a rocky beach myself. Our entrees of dover sole meuniere and the evening's beef carving trolley were delicious as well--melt in your mouth comfort food. A blackberry souffle, recommended by Barbara, was the choice for dessert and it filled the bill delightfully. We enjoyed a sparkling wine along the way, another recommendation from the sommelier which was perfect. You will pay handsomely for an evening at Wiltons but you will experience an English tradition very hard to repeat elsewhere. So even if some reviewers find Wiltons old fashioned or out-of-step with today, then I'm happy to be logged into that category, so happy that Wiltons is still here to serve fine British cuisine to us "olde fartes".
