Located high up on the 28th floor of the London Hilton at 22 Park Lane, Galvin at Windows restaurant and bar has become one of the capital’s most talked-about destination dining venues since its opening in 2006. Head Chef Joo Won and Chef Patron Chris Galvin have created seasonally inspired menus based around modern French haute cuisine that have now earned the restaurant its first, much-deserved Michelin Star. Renowned for its peerless views over the capital, including iconic sites like Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace, Galvin at Windows is a restaurant where honest food and genuine hospitality are already a tradition after just a few short years. Because of the elegance of the room and the jaw-dropping 360-degree views, Galvin at Windows is certainly a destination restaurant with fine service and all the trimmings. But, clever Galvin staff, the set lunch menu and bar express menu bring this sublime French cuisine within reach.

We did not like the Bellini and did not drink them so that seemed wasteful. Amuse bouche and starter were first rate. Steaks were good but basic.

Really enjoyed the views and the attentive staff and service.
The patrons are a mixed crowd of international hotel guests and Anniversary / Birthday tables. Views are great if you get a window seat.
We had the Sunday Lunch menu and the food wasn't entirely convincing.
The foie gras and sausage biscuit was just too heavy ,
the Sunday roast was tasty , but the sides were over cooked , the potatoes could have been served in a more creative way then standard pub style roast potatoes . The peppercorn sauce didn't do it for me either .
The deserts were excellent.
The portion sizes are huge , so you definitely get your moneys worth , but for a Michelin Star restaurant I don't think it matches other restaurants I have visited in London in the past months.

I went there for my mom’s birthday, with three kid.
The food was very good and the service excellent.
When I booked the restaurant I was a bit nervous about going there with kids but the waiters has been very kind and friendly with them, and they got special attention (bag of games).
We had a very good moment at Galvin, and I would recommend it.

The views were great but after having been to Shard and others in London, it was nothing to ride home about. However, I was looking forward to Michelin Star experience and sadly the food was mediocre to say the least. It was nothing spectacular , amazing or exciting . You can get that pretty much in any City restaurant for less - £82 for 3 courses can't be justified with the standard that Galvin at the Windows offers. Staff were ok, but were very pushy for you to order.
The restaurant was not that busy and lacked any real atmosphere. So sad as I came here in 2013 I felt the whole experience and food was much better.

Had a great meal for my parents anniversary - nice gesture by staff who brought an extra dessert dedicated to the occasion. We went for the 3 courses for £30 deal which was very good value, and the best dishes were probably the ham hock with corn-fed chicken and consome, followed by the apple pancake with creme fraiche ice cream.
Special mention to Oliver, who took the time to give us a kitchen tour and show us the views from the back of the building too, which were amazing!
Would like to come back here for a tasting menu for sure!

Excellent food, excellent service. We were made to feel very welcome and looked after throughout. The added touches including the birthday cake and the postcards/Easter treats/marshmallows were brilliant. Loved every second of it and will definitely be coming back. The only downside - I feel that the restaurant could do with a face lift - updating as it does look a little tired. Overall excellent.

Took my girlfriend here for her birthday celebration meal, first for drinks at the skybar overlooking the city, and then for the tasting menu in the restaurant. Service was outstanding and every course of the menu was divine. Totally memorable evening made extra special by spending it here with a stunning view and some of the best food in London.

Took my wife for her birthday. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. I ordered the 7 course menu and my wife the 3 course but the staff accommodated the timing of the courses perfectly and even included a few of my courses for my wife complimentary. They also provided a complimentary mini birthday cake. The staff couldn’t do enough for us and really ensured we had an extra special lunch. Had an absolutely brilliant experience and meeting Fred made my wife’s day. Highly recommend this restaurant, truly amazing. Not cheap but worth every penny.

A very friendly and professional team, delivering an outstanding product.
It was our first visit to this restaurant and I can say that from the moment we stepped out of the lift we were looked after in a very professional manner.
The service from all of the staff was second to none, all extremely polite and very on the ball.
The quality of the food was amazing, with great flavor and taste.
A very good start to our special weekend away.

Got charged way too much for a mediocre meal. The deals don’t work as you don’t even get mash or potatoes with the beef and the side order is around £6-8. Not worth the experience to be honest. Disappointed

Food and atmosphere were great with amazing views of London, and excellent, friendly service.
Just one criticism: bread was brought to the table at the beginning which we thought was included and we ate, but when the bill came we were charged £11 for it. We felt this was a bit exaggerated, and that people should be told that it's not free.

Overall though, it was a very special dining experience and we enjoyed it very much.

Amazing value, top class lunch deal, 3 courses for £30 including a Bellini cocktail, was wonderful. We both had the chicken and pork fricandeau, a pate, including pink pickles (?), caper and raisin puree. Very tasty and interesting. I had the pan-fried fillet of Pollock, brandade, turnips & sorrel veloute, just perfect,and my husband the roasted rump of pork, boudin noir, carrot and cider jus, beautifully presented. He praised the rhubarb & custard trifle, blood orange sorbet and I paid extra for the cheese. Wine obviously significantly added to the bill but the food, together with the stupendous view, made it worth every penny.

I thought that my main course was absolutely tasteless ( lemon sole etc ) and expensive . I also found the shrimp element to be undercooked which probably contributed to the stomach issues later that evening. I originally booked the £35 pre theatre menu but my guest neither ate pork or fish so that didnt work so we worked off the A La Carte menu. Overall it was a disappointing and a very expensive main course. If I had not been entertaining someone from Singapore I would have taken issue with my main course meal and returned it. My guest asked for her beef to be medium to well and it was clearly well done to over cooked.

I do not usually write reviews however on this occasion I felt I needed to write one.

I specifically requested for a window seat as it was my wife’s birthday, and didn’t get one, and common courtesy for most restaurants for a birthday dinner would be to at least help mark the occasion to make it a memorable event considering how much we spent, but surprisingly all my wife received was happy birthday by the receptionist that greeted us.

I understand it was busy, but everything’s felt rushed and if not for the views which I highly recommend, it would be best to avoid this restaurant on busy days!
