MERE is husband and wife team, Monica and David Galetti's first restaurant.

Spread over two floors, this Fitzrovia-based restaurant is the brainchild of Monica Galetti who is featuring as a judge on the BBC's MasterChef The Professionals.

The restaurant itself serves european dishes that have been delicately created by Monica and Alberto our Head Chef.
Nestled above the spacious basement restaurant is the bar, managed by our Mixologist Glenn, which serves an array of delectable cocktails.
Monica's husband, David , is in charge of the Front of House at Mere with his Restaurant Manager Nicola, and using his years of experience as an expert sommelier to create a wine selection along side his head Sommelier Alexandre that perfectly balances with the seasonal dishes on offer.

    The most fantastic of anniversary nights began when we entered through that amazing door and were welcomed by David. Cocktails served by Glen in the bar gave us time to admire the artwork and choose our food. Alex, the sommelier, helped us go off piste with our wine choices - and what an amazing job he did. The food surpassed all expectations and whilst it was all outstanding if I was only to have one more bite in life it would be the potato crisp canapé!! We had the smoked duck and pea capeletti followed by brill and lobster. I don’t usually do dessert but couldn’t resist the hokey pokey whilst my partner had pineapple tart. On the way out David asked if we had seen Monica and as we hadn’t he invited us to meet her in the kitchen! What a treat - how they manage to work in that heat is beyond me! Monica was graceful and so proud of her whole kitchen team whilst David praised the front of house team. All the staff said how much they loved working there and we could see why. Thank you for a wonderful memorable evening - oh, and I think I am a little in love with Monica ❤️ 🙏

    We were greeted pleasantly enough but then the fun stopped. The waiting staff seemed to no really want to be there - little to no smiles and not much interaction. The food was strange - smoked duck with pepper and vanilla?? all the combinations were odd and none made you want to keep going back or think about having to bring people here. The drinks were pretty good and they had a Duckhorn red that i have been wanting to try for years and that did not disappoint. Monica was in when we were there and running the pass - we asked if it would be possible for her to meet us (given we are fans) and the front of house said he would ask and she would usually come out after service. At 10pm I asked if she was still coming to meet us nd he said she had left - brilliant NOT. I A lot could be learnt by going to Pollen Street social - Jason A has it right. He also went out of his way to not only come and meet us when we went, but had copies of the tasting menu printed off and signed for us to take away with us. Over all MERE was .. more Meh .. o dear. I will not be recommending this place or returning again. As Gordan Ramsey would say "such a shame"

    Food was superb, as was the service and ambience. Only small complaint is that there was only one choice of grappa (which was a little raw). Otherwise, our favorite high end dining experience in London, for a few years running.

    Food was excellent i cant fault it but the service could be improved. Pregnant guest was left without a drink for 20 minutes because staff forgot. We went for a special occasion and it just didnt feel like that, i cant put my finger on why For a restaurant looking for a 1st star the service just needs to be a bit sharper. Would love to go back and give it another go. Thanks

    We chose Mere to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We hoped for a really special evening, and were not disappointed. The restaurant is tastefully appointed, the service was excellent and, most importantly, the food & wine was absolutely delicious. It was a bonus to meet Monica who popped into the restaurant to welcome guests at the start of service before going into the kitchen. It was a great experience- would recommend for a special occasion.

    This is the best restaurant I have been to in a very long time. We had the taster menu and it was spectacular - perfect portion size and a great selection from the menu. The wine was good value not crazily overpriced like a lot of Michelin star restaurants - AND Monica came out and spoke to everyone what a legend.

    I took my wife to Mere as a christmas present and we absolutely loved it. The food was just exquisite and at such a high level, it really made us understand what it means to 'elevate' food. We had the tasting menu and there were so many textures and flavours to experience, could not fault it. The only thing that didn't quite light our fire is that some of the staff, even though very professional and efficient at their jobs, were a bit too serious or performative, they didn't seem very relaxed and that put us on edge a bit. Monica herself was warm and completely at ease when she came around to chat to our tables individually however. It was a minor gripe but it would certainly elevate the service if all the staff had a better rapport with the customers. Still bloody amazing though!!

    We literally booked Mere whilst we were already on the train down to London & we got the last sitting. Despite the fact that we were the last sitting (arriving at 21:00), the service was exemplary from the whole team and we’ve never been looked after so well. The food was out of this world with honourable mentions to the lamb cannon (as it was literally melt in the mouth) and the hokey pokey. With regards to the latter we’ve been lucky enough to visit New Zealand and try this firm favourite. The Hokey Pokey at Mere took me straight back to the sea front in Napier, albeit a much elevated version

    Nice decor, good food, very average service. You can see what needs to be done to get a star. The dishes were lovely, with good wine pairing and the price was competitive for what we got. The staff however added little, from a wine waiter who read the bottle to table staff that were unintelligible. I expected more attention to detail from Monica, maybe that’s why she’s cutting back on her TV appearances, as her restaurant needs her touch.

    The Food was absolutely next level on presentation and taste, could not fault that part at all. I understand the concept of a tasting menu but unfortunately the portion sizes were just too small. The service was second to none and like I said the food was outstanding. Just a shame I left still hungry. I would still recommend to friends if asked.
