An incredible evening ! We had the 7 course menu with paired wines. Every course was fantastic and perfectly individual and complemented beautifully with the choice of wines. They were all incredible! We were looked after so well but the team and particularly Aga Josko the restaurant manager. Sofian and the team had created masterpieces and indulged us in a trip to the kitchen at the end to say thank you. A memorable night with friends and looking forward to returning again

We have been to the Ormer many times before. This week we went to experience the new lunch tasting menu - we weren't disappointed! We had the seven course menu and were delighted with the varied taste of the food. Coupled with the excellent service (they remembered us from our last pre-covid visit!), it was again the wonderful experience we have come to expect. A few points of note. Many of the portions are of a tasting size (i.e. not a plateful) but with the excellent bread we felt full at the end. There are two menus and you can chop and change between the two. We had the additional cheese course, this is large enough to share between two or three. Finally, traffic is currently light so we came in by car and parked (pre-booked) in one of the nearby parking establishments.

We dined the second day after the May 2021 lockdown eases.
The most wonderful taster menu and experience at Ormer. The Front of House and service was outstanding and the food was extremely well presented and so beautiful. Will be going back again soon.

I had yellowtail ceviche as a starter, my husband chose risotto. I had black cod for my main course and my husband had sea bass. All four dishes were delicious but for me the star was the ceviche !
I would recommend anyone interested in fine food to make a booking.

Our second visit and so we returned to try the Tasting Menu by Great British Menu Finalist Kerth Gumbs. Amazing!! Really enjoyed each course but the highlight was 'Commotion in the Ocean" which was sublime. Lobster, coconut, cauliflower and cookles. Mouthwatering combination skillfully crafted to produce a plate of excellence for me!!
Only criticism, the pork loin in the meat dish was tough (sadly couldn't eat it) and although we choose the wine pairing to go with the food we felt a glass of fizz at the beginning of the meal was lacking and could have been offered as a gesture. (after all we were spending a lot of money!!)

We’ve been or Ormer in Jersey (which is phenomenal) and came with high expectations. The bar is great, nice little library or snug feel in the lower ground floor of the Flemings Hotel. The barman is also very creative and very attentive.

But the restaurant is a little bland in comparison to other premium restaurants in Mayfair - it’s nice enough - but it’s very expensive for the decor and very expensive for the quality of food.

I really enjoyed my venison but the crab starter was bland and my wife’s lamb dish was under seasoned and under cooked. The vegetables were also very much “ready meal” quality - mushrooms too salty, broccoli and yogurt bland and an odd combo and new potatoes in what tasted like mayonnaise was also odd.

A real shame because we really, really loved Ormer in Jersey where the ambiance, staff and food were just next level. The Mayfair piece just doesn’t come close, to Jersey or to others in the area.

Lunch for two and a shared Cote de Boeuf was outstanding. Food, service and price point strong. Clearly we were one of just two tables in a lovely, large room which meant low ambience, but staff couldn't have tried harder. Nice amuse bouches too!

Fantastic service, great food and wine.

Restaurant was empty when we arrived as music was fairly low so was a bit weird trying to speak to each other as staff would have been able to hear our conversation. Once other guests arrived was more comfortable.

Bread at the start was fairly hard, but the rest of the food compensated. Yellow tail cevice was incredible! And presentation was beautiful.

Very kind and welcoming staff, thank you.

Would definitely go back to celebrate another anniversary and would recommend.

We love The Omer, it’s our 4th time going, can’t fault it, and as it was my daughters birthday, she received a card, signed by everyone, also a side plate with truffles, and candle, plus happy birthday written in Chocolate, and the head chef came out and wished her happy birthday,
We will continue to return time and again

We were a table of six for the GBM tasting experience. The service was attentive friendly and efficient without being over the top. We had a private area which elevate the sense of a catered dinner party. The real star was the food! Innovative, visually stunning, well balanced plates that was at another level vs many tasting menus. Add to that the lovely surroundings and the finishing touch of the Chef coming to serve the pre dessert personally making it overall a winner.

Food and service fantastic. A little quiet - but this was midweek and unfortunately a reflection of the current environment, and this did not spoil our enjoyment at all. Highly recommend.

I cannot speak highly enough of our experience at Ormer. The food is magnificent and the welcome we received was incredibly warm. Kerth himself made time for us and other guests. He was a big draw for all of us and made my son’s day by stopping to talk to us about the food, and life. The food itself is beyond delicious, uniquely inventive yet somehow classical. The waiting staff were so kind, so attentive and we cannot wait to go back to try Kerth’s latest creations!!

We've been to the Ormer many times before and, as before, it didn't disappoint. We love the food and the attention, they remembered us from before, but we were the only diners for lunch so the ambiance was quiet! They said that they were full for the evening.

Ormer at Fleming’s Hotel on Half Moon Street is heavenly.
In these times the tables were spaced out perfectly for socially distancing.
The staff are delightful and perfectly attentive and were wearing masks and visors.
The food was stunning. Bursting with different flavours.
Sharing Cote de Boeuf was a delight
The fennel meringues and Black Forest Trifle titillated our tastebuds.
My first meal out after lockdown and what a joy.

We really enjoyed Ormer. From the amazing service and thoughtfulness of the staff, the ambience of the restaurant, to the beautifully presented and delicious food. The time between courses was perfect, we did not feel rushed. The staff surprised us with a birthday dessert, and even sang for us. We will definitely be returning in the future!
