Poor service, no ambience, mediocre to poor food and expensive for what it offers.
No soul, no character, feels abandoned.
In serious need of a lifting job.

We hadn’t been to Motcombs since it changed ownership. We used to go regularly and always enjoyed it.
The menu is smaller than before, but the food was very good.
The staff were friendly but not very well trained . The waitress passed the plates across the table instead of coming round behind the guests. Difficult to get her attention if we needed something.
Restaurant lacked of atmospehere and buzz.
I hope it will improve with time as it is very convenient for us ( we live in the area).
A bit of training the staff would help.

A lesser known London icon where they immediately make you feel welcome. With beautiful art, clever lighting, comfortable seating and table cloths the ambience is warm and luxurious. The food is simple but not short of exotic ingredients and the portions are generous, offering great value for money in Mayfair.

Motcombs is always a great place, the food is brilliant and the staff helpful and i would recommend the Prawn and Lobster Spaghetti. The seating is pleasant and ambiance very relaxed and enjoyable, always a pleasure to visit this restaurant.

Christmas lunch with the family .... what a disappointment. Only a Christmas menu available...now under new ownership.Same prices but awful food . Spaghetti lobster is now mainly prawns ...spaghetti not good at all. It used to be excellent..have gone here for 15 years. Daughter had a burger ..awful meat .. She left it . Calamari now done with just a side of sweet chilli .. the previous sauce had been amazing....no filo prawns on the menu . Had gone there for the children to have fish goujons that they love and steak frites ...now steak £35... the wine served was not what I ordered...£168 later for 2 adults and 2 kids.
Waiter realised we were not happy and had left ,most of the food. I explained as above but no discount made...

With an excellent lunchtime menu, good wine list and top service, this is a great stop if you find yourself in the area - you might even travel to lunch here! Very good quantities, and the goats cheese and beetroot starter was worth the trip alone. Happily on the list for a return visit.

Don’t like shorter lunch menu .Staff were ok but seemed like the”B “ team .Have had great staff on previous occasions .Waitress knocked over table floral decoration on adjacent table . Splashed my guest . No apology!My guest sent steak back because it was over cooked and very tough . Replacement was not much better . No one asked him if 2 nd one any better.Worst Motcombs experience this year but I like the location and I know it can do better .Probably a management issue.

Unfortunately there was a lady having a row with her husband who then walked out leaving her there - she then had the most awful coughing fit - we had to ask if she was OK -she then then proceed to phone and make an appointment to see her consultant. All of this could be heard by the staff but when she left they didn't even say anything to us. Thanks

Motcombs never fails to please. The menu is varied and full of things you want to try. The portions are nice and generous, the food cooked to perfection and of an extremely high quality. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient too making the whole Motcombs experience a highly enjoyable occasion.
I love this place and will happily continue to return again and again for lunch, Sunday Lunch, dinner, whatever.... I am sure the new breakfast experience is every bit as good too!

Great atmosphere without intrusive music (so often a problem these days). Charming, old school service where the order was taken and delivered correctly because the staff write it down. I am horrified when restaurant staff are trying to remember the order and getting it wrong. The decor is pleasing and the whole premises clean and well-lit. Throughly recommended to all discerning diners.

Disappointingly quiet for a Friday evening hence a rather over zealous service! We could have easily been out within an hour should we not have slowed things down. Sadly the restaurant needs to up its game to compete with a fantastic London dining scene. Awful wine glasses too - reminiscent of the sort you get when you hire glasses from wine shops!
