34 Mayfair has become a modern-day classic since it opened in November 2011. A colourful contemporary art collection give the room a warm and inviting look, highlighted by the bespoke charcoal grill in the open kitchen. The grill, also known as a parrilla and fed by natural fuels, was custom-made and imported from Argentina and is used not only for beef, but also for seasonal game, fish and shellfish. The beef served at 34 Mayfair includes Scottish dry-aged grass-fed and US prime corn-fed from Creekstone Farm. Weekend brunch is a welcome addition to the menu, and dishes to be on the lookout for include lobster Thermidor omelette; crab & grilled asparagus frittata and buttermilk pancakes, cured bacon, maple syrup. The bar, at which guests can dine or enjoy an aperitif, has been garnering awards and is also host to the house pianist every evening and a jazz trio Saturday and Sunday.

We went to 34 Mayfair based on a recommendation from our banker that this was the place to get the best steak in London. Without question the food was good, but I would not considerate the best steak in London. The service was slow despite the fact we ate fairly early and the restaurant was not busy. I was also surprised that despite by $350 bill for food and beverages, I was charged a cover charge for eating there. There was a piano player that just began to play (for literally 3-4 minutes) before we left. With that said, I thought this was a bit petty given the level of restaurant. Overall a disappointing experience.

The service and ambience was outstanding! Friendly staff where it felt like they were very pleased for us to be their guests. I highly recommend the wagyu beef mac and cheese. Excellent wine selection too. A smart/casual vibe in a premium location. I’ll be back!!

We went for the 4th time in a year or so (as visitors from America) and it is a delicious find. Beautiful setting, excellent varied menu, delicious large portioned dishes and fair value considering the tony neighborhood. Very attentive and gracious service also. Well-done!

I frequent the restaurant and I am fan. However this was not a good experience, enough that I felt compelled to write about it.

Firstly, the extraction unit for the grill was not working this resulted in the no grilled food being served.
Now I actually only go to 34 for the grill so this was a red flag, I was told that they could cook variants 'pan fried,' which I had. Whilst this was not ideal, I did not like the following. The grill had been out of use from the previous night, knowing this and when they called me the next morning to confirm my table , they could have had the courtesy to inform me of this. Secondly they only told me once I had sat down and ordered a drink, knowing it was too late for me to change my mind to leave the restaurant. I felt it was on the whole 'cheeky'.

Oh, they also dropped my food on the floor upon bringing it table, which resulted in having to recook it. Despite me writing this, I did not mind, these things happen in restaurant life. But because the grill was out of action it took longer - a lot longer to recook everything, resulting in dampening the experience.

In short the restaurant should have the courtesy to inform booked dinners of defects to equipment which affects the meal environment. Especially in my case, when this was an landmark anniversary meal for me.

A regular for us, loved it, again. The gooseberry pie with Elderflower cream was one of the best desserts we had in a very long time. Sadly, we failed to get the recipe from Martina the pastry chef.
Great evening all round.

Not very pleased with the staff, who were trying to rush us into finishing the meal. I also think the staff at the table lacked training by giving us the wrong cutlery and could not remember who ordered what (only two persons at the table). Food was good!

The only decent restaurant in central London that opens at 1130 during the week which makes it perfect for early business lunch or midweek brunch. The food was amazing and the service very attentive.

Love 34 Mayfair. Great old fashioned service, happy and helpful staff who don't miss a trick and bend over backwards to make your experience seamless. Simple but elegant and delicious food to suit any mood of the best quality. Subtle live music and a lovely atmosphere. The deboned Dover Sole is so tasty I could eat it every day! I always look forward to going and I'm never disappointed!

This is an upmarket and contemporary restaurant. The service was very fast and the staff were very polite. Despite the speed of service, the restaurant staff were relaxed that we spent about 2.5 hours eating and talking.
