Wellington Lounge at InterContinental London Park Lane
I hadn't visited Cecconis for a few years where the food was excellent and the service fastidious. The food was superb again, but for the price, could have been slightly better. My Calamari Fritti was well cooked and seasoned, but not delicate like it should be. The Zuccini Fritti were slightly too thin which made the taste of the Zuccini too faint to offset the batter and oil. My crab raviol, however, did live up to expectations. The wine list is, as one would expect, wweghted towards Italian but the selection was very good and the prices fair.
The ambience is always wonderful with an ecclectic mix of people and an appropriate murmur of other people talking. The ambient light was a little too dark and even had younger people reaching for the torches on their phones to be able to read the menu. Even for a romantic dinner, it would have been hard to see your partner's eyes and appreciate them. Just a tas more brightness would have been perfect.
The service on this occasionan, however, was really not to standard and I was vexing between 2 adn 3 stars. They just seemed, in our area, one waiter short and our wine glasses sometimes remained emoty for quite some time; which wouldn't be a problem except that our wine bottles were removed from the table so we had to wait to be served. The time to take orders seemed quite extended as well.. and there vacant tables around us as well.. But even on entry and leaving, there seemed a deference to the patrons and leaving/picking up coats from the hosts seemed to take longer than it shoudl.
It is still a great restaurant, however, it isn't cheap or even moderatly priced by any means and I will go back again, but in as eager anticipation as this visit. It could have just been an off night
This restaurant is consistently excellent. I’ve been using it for many years and never had a bad experience. The food (in particular the crab ravioli) on Thursday was exceptional.
Food was delicious, very fresh and tasty. Restaurant was very well decorated and clean. The receptionist was very friendly and efficient. The only criticism is that the service was a bit slow. However, it wasn’t enough to put me off going back, I’d just allow extra time.
Brilliant as always. Although it does tend to get too noisy at times and sometimes the lighting is not sufficient. Staff very friendly and welcoming.
La nourriture était très moyenne
It’s a lovely place.
They serve excellent quality food.
Unluckily it is noisy, they might have music :-)
Fabulous host in Sabrina, who couldn't do enough for us on New Year's Day. That said, everyone was wonderful. I had a juicy beef fillet and my wife had salmon, medium cooked - perfectly. But above all we're going back just for the Bellinis, you can take it from me, the best in London. All this, moderate prices, white table cloths, superb decor and views of the world going by. Never a dull moment here. Good luck getting in.
Excellent food and a great atmosphere with good service
Always consistent and does not disappoint.
Ottimo cibo e sempre bell’ambiente
No Christmas decoration at all ? Very dark and not so warm in the restaurant
Always enjoy eating here. Has just the right ambience, service very good. Good place to meet friends as you can have a conversation and hear each other. Love the veal milanaise - although I can never quite finish the generous portion. Desserts delicious.
We waited more than 30 minutes even though we had a reservation! But the waiters have been kind with us at the table and the service has been professional and kind.
Always impressed with this restaurant
The food was cold and the waiter took it. I thought they would give me a new one, but what came back was my own pasta reheated (I think in the microwave) with a sauce that seems like mixed with water. Not even close to the first presentation. Trying not to complain, I ate the pasta but when telling the waiter after, he was extremely rude. We didn’t have mood to ask desert or anything else.
Fabulous food, the crab ravioli was phenomenal. Very friendly staff and a very lively atmosphere.
Not as good as I expected, and it's really noise in the party
We asked for breakfast when the breakfast menu had closed as we were traveling from the Middle East and in London only one day. They were so kind as to accommodate- luxury service at its best and always top of our list! Thank you!
Fab u lous
Eggs Benedict with hard centres. Unfriendly staff at entrance. Style over substance.
Always when I am in London I visit “my” favorite restaurant Cecconi’s. Never disappointed, always very satisfied.
Great food, very quick and observant service and a fantastic experience!
Starter: Beef Carpaccio. It was old and smothered in oil. Had patches of brown.
Main: Lobster Linguine. Lobster was overcooked. Too much oil in pasta.
Side: Zucchini Frites. over salted. We didn't finish them.
Starter came too quickly. Main took too long.
Waiter never asked whether our food was good / ok. Otherwise, we would have mentioned the above.
Excellent as always . Great breakfast and great maitre de
Pleasant atmosphere, good breakfast and decent service, what more could you ask.
Excellent service and good food. Don't go there if you want a business meeting or an intimate dinner - it was very noisy
Cecconi’s is a lovely restaurant with great atmosphere. The staff are very welcoming.
Lovely Italian food. Buzzy Environment. Professional service. No skimping.
Staff fab as always. Good fab too
Fabulous as always - just such a classy place! A window seat is fabulous to people watch.
Fantastic atmosphere, staff are friendly and professional. Service good and at a nice pace, cloakroom service is a great feature and the WiFi too.
Happy to make dishes off menu and of great freshness and quality.
Is always a must on our trips to London...
Excellent food and atmosphere
Amazing Italian restaurant. This is great for a date / anniversary / celebration. Food is incredible
Sunday breakfast service poor, not usual staff! Lovely food and venue but let down by service.
Comparing this Cecconi’s to the ones in Miami and Barcelona the food was not as good and the servants pretty rood and not paying attention to anything we asked. All and all not wat we expected it to be.
Consistent Quality Top staff.
Didn't fail to disappoint, usual excellence
Been meaning to go to here for ages and cancelled two or three times. Loved the atmosphere. Even though it was loud with energy and had a real buzz, the way the tables are laid out meant that you were close enough, but equally far enough from people not to have your own conversation drowned out. Our waitress struggled to impart what the special was and the cost implication of having pasta with black truffle. I wouldn't have had it i.e. cost versus value/enjoyment of the dish i.e. it was £40, especially as I had the crab ravioli as the main course, which was good but not outstanding. Would have preferred a bisque or white type sauce as opposed to a tomato based one. I would have had the crab and avocado starter instead (& then changed my main course) which looked fabulous going to another table. Picked a lovely wine Laguna. Really enjoyed it overall though and will definitely go back.
This restaurant never fails to delight! Amazing food, lovely service. A really special ambiance.
Our favourite restaurant when we visit London. Food is always great and staff always friendly.
