The setting and the food/drink was brilliant at the restaurant however the service was far from what I was expecting at such a high-end restaurant. In such a competitive restaurant area such as Mayfair you would think that they would have the basics down to a tee but there were numerous instances where they lacked the simple things. Little things such as giving us menus straight away, taking our food order before our drinks, starters arriving before our drinks just to name a few. Apart from one waiter (Raz, who started his shift at the end of our meal), all the other staff lacked any sort of personality and didn't seem like they wanted to be there which put a downer on our night. I asked for the bill and it had service charge included so I got them to remove it as they definitely did not deserve it. As I said the food and setting was great but it was such a shame that the staff could not maintain the same levels as other parts of the meal, it definitely left a sour taste in our mouths.

Honestly.. Truly amazing restaurant. There were some reviews that I read which made me have second thoughts but after my visit I must honestly say this is a great restaurant. Very nice and romantic but also can be a nice evening team dinner for work. The food was WOW just WOW. The Wine list is very attractive, and the service was very professional. I would highly recommend and we plan to visit again soon.

This was my third time in this restaurant and I highly recommended it to my boyfriend before taking him. Overall I was really disappointed with the table offered to us even though I booked it in advance. The food was terrible and not worth what I paid. I felt disappointed that it actually did not come anywhere near my recommendation. Probably won’t go again. The wine was the only good thing. Sorry

Rude staff who didn’t ask and cleared plates before we even finished eating. We were seated at 6:30pm and had the table back at 9, waiters seemed in a rush to start clearing everything at 7:25pm. Foodwise, chips were served cold and bland. I’ve had better chips at even McDonalds. They seemed merely a pack of chips from a frozen section in a cheap superstore. Desert was served with a jar of smarties. Not sure what that was...

Overall I think the food was overpriced for what it was. I was fooled by the high ratings here.

Terrible restaurant. Perhaps the worst meal out I have had in London in a decade. Stale bread. Tasteless refrigerator-temperature burrata. Pasta that was over cooked and not fully drained. A mushroom sauce without a single mushroom. Bizzare decor with a fake plastic vine on the ceiling. Avoid at all costs.

A wonderful restaurant with adorable staff! There is a new menu but I wanted something from the old one .No problem! My husband wanted his prawns shelled for him.No problem! Delicious food! To start ,huge green olives,fresh bread, Tuscan olive oil, and a bowl filled with sweet parmegiano reggiano right from the wheel were served immediately and of all things ,smarties and biscotti for the table at the end. We loved it!

This is one of the best rest in London. You can have best Italian wine selection with excellent meal presentation, incredibly tasty and service is top. You can drink highly rated wines by the glass and you can taste seasonal local fresh Italian foods!

I went there with a friend of mine and two other staff member of his company who were visiting London on Business. I chose the restaurant because its near my office and I was interested in Florence Style Beef Steak. The atmosphere was good and service was friendly. The actually meat was a little disappointing as it was rather tough and chewy, not to our likings. Other than that I think the standard of food was quite high. I am willing to go back there but not for the Florence Style Steak...

You need to be careful selecting where to sit as the noise level varies and can be annoying. The
food is well-prepared and served. As the name suggests, the wine list is the reason for dining here
but it is not inexpensive. To give an idea of costs, an aperitif, three courses (the dessert really only a
taster, a carafe of wine, and coffee produced a bill of nearly £200.00 for two: this is roughly what
West End top line restaurants are going to cost, if not more.

The food was delicious, lots of variety and everything on the menu seemed like a good choice. Also an extensive wine menu to choose from.
It's a bit pricey but lovely for a special occasion.

This has been a consistent favorite of mine in London. However, poor service (constant haggling to place our order, within 3 min of sitting down, the waiter's lack of knowledge of the specials when it was time to order, and a just a "fair" meal - not bad by any stretch, but just nothing special/unique such that we are used to at Frescobaldi. The restaurant has clearly slipped versus other recent experiences.

Overall very good. However the waiters were so eager to fill our glasses and impatient to order more bottles that they fill your glass three times before you even touch it, up to the top, and they ended up mixing sparkling and still water to finish the bottles even faster!
