Orchids are my favorite flowers so the beautiful floral arrangement immediately elevated my mood.
Service was friendly and professional.
The thoughtful choices on the fixed menu catered to vegetarian and non-vegetarian.
The food was elegantly plated and delicious!
I highly recommend the Oval for all occasions!

First time at The Oval restaurant in The Wellesley and not disappointed. Been tempted to go before but some of the reviews have the impression that the food was fantastic but the restaurant itself lacked atmosphere mainly because it lacked customers. Not on Saturday it was full . Our sea bass was excellent and only minus was the quantity of vegetables. But otherwise all good. Puddings were delicious especially the ice cream selection with sorbets. Staff were very good and professional. Gave us lots of time and didn’t rush us at all. Will return, the Open Table deal was also excellent with 3 courses from a set menu and a glass of Veuve each for £35.

First visit to the restaurant for Friday dinner. Enjoyed starter and main at the gorgeous and (surprisingly) small restaurant, then moved to the Jazz Lounge for dessert. Very attentive staff and excellent food.

Once again a fabulous experience. Special word of thanks to the chef who sent out some lovely 'extras'. The Oval is one of my favourite restaurants in London.

Expensive for the experience. Why do hotel restaurants always have piped music? It would have been so much better without

Excellent service and yummy food. We had the tasting menu which we enjoyed everything from bread basket to chic fondue desert... however the foie was the weakest of the dishes.
We also got to adjourn to the jazz lounge to wind down with our desert.

Impeccable service and lovely atmosphere (if you're into a laid back and calming feel) ! The food was tasty (and had lovely extras) and the set menu was great value for money. Sitting in the jazz lounge afterwards was a nice way to end the evening. Only downside (if any) was the restaurant itself was smaller than I initially thought.

Went for a friends birthday , just 3 of us , had pre booked , when we got there was shown to a table set for 4 people , they proceeded to remove 1 place setting .
My 2 friend sat facing in to the restaurant I sat the other side of the table facing some darkened mirrors so for me felt claustrophobic. The restaurant only had 2 other diners in so have to say lacked atmosphere although for us it was nice to be able to chat .
We went for the £35.00 set menu which included a glass of fizz. As none of us drink they changed it for us to soft drinks which was appreciated .
The food was pleasant , tasty and nicely presented . The service was attentive and the waiter friendly . It was a leisurely meal and suited our purpose but as I said previously lacked any atmosphere .

The whole experience was amazing, the cocktails, the nibbles, every course of the lunch was amazing, the service, the champagne, the amus bouch, the petit fours and the coffee. I would recommend this unreservedly and I will be back :-)

An intimate Art Deco gem with the subtle sounds from the jazz lounge complementing the divine food. The OpenTable offer was exceptional value. Check it out for yourself.
