From the moment we walked into this delightful beautiful restaurant we were treated with outstanding service, genuine graciousness. The staff is very attentive, friendly and helpful. The menu has something for everyone. If the tomato soup is on the menu when you’re dying you must get it it’s excellent with crunchy croutons and raisins.

For dessert grilled pineapple, coconut sorbet and crunchy bits of gingersnap. A wonderful ending to a beautiful meal.

Went for a meal in a company of girls. The seat that was offered was right next to the kitchen door although the restaurant inside was rather empty throughout the whole 2.5 hour visit. The waiter serving us seemed to behave a bit odd, in a bit of a playful manner trying to make jokes I assume to please the "ladies" but generally made me feel uncomfortable. The set menu was nice but nothing exceptional.

Overall a good evening at The Ham Yard, starter of the lobster cocktail well worth trying.
Good food and service, my only negative would be the tending staff needs to be people aware and learn how to read the need of the each costumer.
The staff member who received myself and my party at reception was very Friendly and welcoming, this is needed in more of her team.
Overall a good evening spent at The Ham Yard

The food was exceptional. If I have one gripe it was the glass of port that I ordered arrived in a big wine glass, the portion was massive and the glass just didn’t work for such a refined drink.

Menu was a bit limited but ok. My friend chicken was nice but had a very sweet sugary sauce over it which made it not that appealing. Service was great and staff were very attentive.

Absolutely fabulous to be back in the West End again on a gorgeous summer evening - not surprisingly the area and hotel was packed. The staff were very generous to find us a table in the bar before our table was ready.
Cocktails were lovely - service a tad slow, but it was v v busy. Only slight gripe was a VERY noisy table next door to us which made it v hard to hear each other (we were a table of 3).

Food was lovely and beautifully served. It came very quickly.. The staff were all so good: I would def come back (and or go to the new hotel opening in Covent Garden....)

Food was good, slightly unseasoned. Service was poor, not very attentive, the atmosphere was that of a funeral in all honesty. Nice setting but over priced.

Don’t believe the Hype.

Had a lovely late afternoon drink and dinner followed. Staff were very helpful and gave very high level of customer service with a smile.
Menu quite small but tasty and well presented with ample portion size. Prices were quite expensive for what was on offer.
But worty of a second visit

5 of us met up to celebrate 41 years of knowing one another and we were so well looked after by Antonio, who was gracious and fun. Food was excellent as was the muscadel wine! Thank you for making this a special evening.

Very mediocre overall. Dover sole was rubbery and overcooked, poor. Other meals not great either. Service cheerful but patchy and took about 20 minutes to pay, felt a bit like not bothering. Overall disappointing, especially for the price.

We ate from the special London Festival of Food menu, excellent value for us good choices for each course. The outer eating area was very busy and so was reasonably noisy, we were seated indoor at the back where it was much quieter (good for us). Food was well presented, interesting flavours and good size portions.

Poor inattentive service. Took an hour to get our order taken, no check back and we couldn’t get anyone’s attention to serve us drinks so only had water throughout our meal.

Food was bland but well presented. The “grilled Peach salad” was particularly insipid.

We had a 2 course “deal” and no champagne arrived which was part of that package. When I asked about it at the end of the meal when paying the bill the waiter just shrugged.
