Very good, old school experience. We really enjoyed the food. Lovely (vegan) mushroom and ale pie. We also loved the good choice of vegetable side orders.

Valentines Day evening meal at Wiltons. First time eating here and had an outstanding time. The food and service was second to none. Will definitely be adding this to the list to return to in the future and would highly recommend if you have not been before.

Important dinner for me, joined by senior leadership of our firm and top customers. Thanks to the staff. They were all fantastic. Superb service and all smiles. Tip of the hat to the manager for selecting and developing a great team. I'll be back when I next return to London. All the best.

Wiltons is what it is. I would go there every day if I could afford to. Nearly everything was perfect ….the oysters, the plaice the Swiss wine Petite Arvine (very difficult to find this one). Top marks all round.

Wilton’s is expensive as it should be given its location and quality. We go because of the traditional English food, and particularly the fish. Also because it’s very civilised experience (unless you’re on one of the tables jammed in the aisles. They really should be removed even though it does mean the loss of some covers.) We we’re fortunate enough to have been given a lovely quiet, comfortable booth.
On this visit, the potted shrimps, large Dover soles, creamed spinach, female sommelier-recommended St Aubin, crème brûlée, and coffee, salted caramel and vanilla ice creams, were all marvellous. Service was efficient and sweet.
The only duds were a deconstructed prawn cocktail that had obviously been formed in a large pastry cutter. They should leave this nonsense to lesser restaurants. We all know what a good prawn cocktail should look like, and contain, namely a wide glass layered with a chiffonade of lettuce, a good heap of hand-peeled North Atlantic prawns - not tiger prawns - all napped with a proper Marie-rose sauce. A garnish of lemon and/or cucumber and a dash of cayenne are acceptable.
The small loaf of bread looked great but was also disappointing, being a bit stale.
With two glasses of decent house champagne and two whisky sours the bill was £350 including service. A lot for two but it was our Christmas present to ourselves and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Wiltons is wonderful I love it, long may it remain exactly like it is, I love the tablecloths if only more restaurants had tablecloths and the organisation and service is great as is the food and wine list- I never want it to modernise I hate modern restaurants I like character and heart abd soul

My first attempt to book a table at Wilton's failed: it was closed for renovations for a long period. I was booking at the suggestion of my guest, Sir Ian Moncrieffe of that Ilk, and the time was nearly 30 years ago. Sir Ian particularly liked Wilton's "because it is the only smart London restaurants that has waitresses, and they remind me of my nanny." The waitresses seem now to have been replaced with young, eager and caring young men, but there are some notably comely young women helping them. The food is always superb. My host ordered plaice, a fish I normally disdain, feeling life is too brief to eat plaice or lemon sole. I was proved wrong by Wilton's plaice meunière. My own Loch Duart oysters were spectacular, huge, firm and brinily delicious. Our bottle of house Chablis was a bargain at £49. Despite the several tables of very young lovers (how could they afford Wilton's?), this is still the place for gentlemen to enjoy each others' company, superb food, and the best service in London.

Wiltons is as usual a unique place in London, a first class British restaurant with a marvellous acoustics which makes it possible for a quiet conversation the whole evening. The food is excellent, especially the sea food and the oysters.
I simply love the place.

It was my fifth time at Wilton’s. The food was as good as always but the service was poor. This was surprising since I’ve always been happy with the service previously. We had to ask for menues and it was hard to get the attention of the waitors. After discussing this with one of the waitors the service improved but it was still not great.

I looked for a true British experience and I fully reached my target. Very attractive menu with a variety of oysters, seafood and game. The ambiance is stylish but friendly and easy at the same time. Service simply excellent. I had a fantastic selection of oysters and a roasted pheasant like a typical Christmas proposal. Indeed the pheasant was slightly tough but this has really been the only point of improvement. All the rest deserved 🔝rating. It will be one of my preferite stops in the future.

Went with my fiancee for lunch. We chose the Seasonal menu which was the cheaper option but still outstanding value. We both went for the two course option with my fiancee going for the salmon starter which was plentiful and exquisite. We both went for the roast beef (Wednesday) which was melt in the mouth tender, roast potatoes come with it. We had some sprouts which are a bit pricey at £6.00 for the portion. We shared a date and walnut steamed pudding which was delicious. All this was washed down with a bottle of muscadet which was one of the cheaper options on the extensive wine list.
The service was spot on and I would like to thank Michael Stokes for taking time to tell us about the history of the restaurant. First class !
