It’s a wholly civilised and cultured experience. The servers are appropriately attentive and amenable.
It’s also reassuringly expensive and worth every penny.

Was pleasantly surprised seeing that most restaurant’s customers respected a dress-code. A quality place to invite business partners or family and friends to. Not cheap but this brings certain clientele. The only thing missing for me was no music. Some quiet relaxed jazz (Marc Johnson, for example) at the background would be nice and suitable for this venue. Food was delicious and they have a good choice of wines.

The best restaurant in London without question. Impeccable service in the best tradition, only possible in an establishment owned by bankers who presumably don't expect it to be a major profit centre.

Wiltons always delivers. The best restaurant in the world? I do not know, but the best I have been to...ever. First time with my father many, many years ago, and still the same quality. in fact we had a great lunch, had a brief rest and went back for oysters for dinner...

The Wilton’s experience is unparalleled! Immaculate service is the norm so this visit was slightly disappointing in that we had to call the waiter a couple of times.
Food was excellent but the menu was more limited than I remembered.
Still a great treat.

We arrived early for a pre theatre dinner. We were welcomed, led to the bar and offered a drink. The menus appeared, and explanations offered.
My partner asked about the dove sole, but chose the plaice. I chose smoked salmon (delicious) , from the winter menu, followed by a meaty and excellent skate served with crunchy topping of spring onions lemon and herbs.
Ultimately we were told that the plaice was not available, but the very efficient and charming head waiter offered fried filets of Dover sole, instead.
With chips and some spinach,, we enjoyed a real treat.
I had a glass of Sancerre, whilst my partner took a glass of the house Chablis:crisp flinty and flavoursome.
We refused dessert, but enjoyed the chocolate truffles for a little sweet taste at the end of a very pleasant meal.
Although we needed to be finished and ready to leave by 6.50pm, were never felt to be rushed, the waiter merely asking when we arrived if we were going to the theatre that evening.

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.
