Amazing food and wine. The service is excellent. Only issue was noise levels due to a DJ on the Saturday night. Had to shout all evening. Won’t return on DJ night especially as we had asked for a quieter table !

Very lively place with tasty tapas style food. Noise level was just a little too high and the table's were very close to each other so, it did feel like we were sitting with the table behind us! Food and wine both very good,

The reservation was for high top seating but we didn’t get that reservation eventhough the table was free. Was is the point of asking where you would like to sit in the reservation if you get seated somewhere else?
Food was okay but I think as were seated at a spot which we did not request the evening did not start well!

We enjoyed the following: Orange and avocado salad, patatas bravo, margherita pizza (more like flat bread), Spanish clay pot, one club soda, one glass of wine, and bread (not good). Cost about $77 including tip. Atmosphere modern and chic. Server was very good. Would return.

We had afternoon tea: it was so good! The service was impeccable. For the price, we were given assorted tea sandwiches which were divine, scones, biscuits, sweets and chocolates. Oh, and a glass of champagne. We were here last October and enjoyed it so much that we came back. And, the next time we are in London, we will make it a point to return!

Nice food but expensive and 15% service charge on a lunch is excessive
The service wasn’t 5* service to warrant this

When we arrived we were only 2 tables and we choose 8 small plates. They served 8 dishes in 25 minutes without waiting a normal ritm for a dinner. We fill the pressure we had to finish fast. Not enjoyable at all. is not a fast food !

a bit disappointed. food doesn't offer anything special, apart maybe from the sea bass which comes with interesting flavours. the pan con tomate (tomatoe bread) does NOT look like an Italian bruschetta or a Spanish pan con tomate, what a disappointment. it's ok to try this restaurant once, but I won't be back.

The food and atmosphere was excellent. The restaurant lived up to my expectations and previous reviews.

The only minor hiccup was the waitress forgetting one round of our drink orders and not being knowledgeable on gluten free options.

In any case, I would still highly recommend it.

We really liked the ambience, but i have a suggestion, the waiter did not really help us to choose
It was our first time and we could not decide , and yet we did not end up eating our 2 main dishes
As they were not as good as we expected

We really enjoyed our evening at The Mayfair Kitchen. Loved the tapas concept and the food was very good but I did not give the top rating as there were too many dishes with chilli in, including all four prawn dishes which were spicy! I love prawns but I prefer to be able to taste the shellfish. The crispy sea bass however was terrific and the lobster ravioli although still good, was not as full as the last time I was here. Our waitress was really good though and deserves a special mention, she is from Hungary and her name is similar to Elektra but that is not quite right but I hope she is still identifiable. The ambiance was great too and we will definitely be back.

Cheers Peter
