    The best steaks in London by a distance, great choice, great staff and fantastic surrounding. Every time we come to London we eat here at least once...may look like expensive steak but it has 2 things going for the price, amazing steak and more than generous portions...thanks again for making our night

    Starting with the positives, the food and service were of a very high standard. Steaks were cooked as described on their menu (i.e. medium rare was red and slightly cool in the middle)! Service was attentive without being intrusive. The wine list had a heavy influence from the Americas unless you spend £100+ which was a shame. We had two 400g ribeyes plus side orders and wine followed up with a couple of bourbons - total bill came to just under £200. Overall, the bill was in line with similar establishments (think Goodmans, Hawksmoor, the Palm etc) but somehow I felt slightly shortchanged. It had nothing to do with the food or service as both were very good. What it boils down to was the lack of any real atmosphere in such a large room.

    Despite being an hour late for my reservation, the front of house staff could not be more friendly and welcoming. No issues with our changing table outside to inside during the evening. Food was fabulous; high quality and cooked just to our instructions. Wine was good and reasonable choice. Good value for the quality and location. Service was sometimes a little elusive (difficult to attract attention for more wine, the bill, etc.)

  • Post Graduation Meal to Remember

    Dined on 23/7/2014
    I dined at the restaurant with my two eldest children to celebrate my daughter's graduation from King's College. The service was impeccable; every need catered for but not too "in your face". We ordered three rare cooked fillet steaks with sweet potato mash, creamy mash and baked potato. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. We were pleasantly full but the waiter recommended the cheesecake - stating it was the best in London and if we didn't like it it would be "on him". Needless to say we loved it and it was added to the bill! All in all it was the perfect end to a great day to celebrate the gaining of a first class honours degree and a meal I'm sure my daughter will remember.

    This was our second time dining at JW steakhouse and we were were just as pleased with the meal as we were the first time. The portions are substantial and presented very well and there is a reasonable choice for non-steak eaters! On both visits though it was the staff who made the evening a very pleasant experience as all the staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. Will definitely be coming back again in the near future.

  • Poor Service & Rude Floor Manager

    Dined on 15/6/2014
    We went to the restaurant for Father's Day and all four of our party ordered their USDA steaks cooked medium as per the restaurant's description of medium on their wall boards. All steaks came out over done. The very rude floor manager did change them but on several occasions advised us that they were cooked correctly. A medium steak is normally pink not grey in my experience and red to pink based on the description on their boards. When we requested the bill and asked because of the manager's rudeness, that the service charge be deducted he ranted again! Honestly 1 out of 10 from our perspective. The restaurant wasn't busy and if this is how they treat their guests then spend your money at STK, Cut, Goodmans or Hawksmore.

    I reckon we had one of the best steaks we have had in London for a long time, they could have done with another waitrer/waitress as the service was a little on the slow side but as we were not in a hurry this didnt bother us too much but we were hungry!! One of our party is a vegetarian and there was plenty for her to choose from which is unusual for a Steak Restaurant. The Cheesecake at the end was divine!!

    Ordered off of the specials board and forgot to ask the price! Nowhere near as highly priced as we thought it would be considering we had over 2 lbs of steak each! Staff were wonderfully friendly and we're very open about the meat and which cuts were best for what each of us wanted. Will gladly come back. Maybe with a bit more money next time :).

    The J W Steakhouse at the Grosvenor Hotel is an excellent choice if you enjoy a good steak. They serve USDA choice steaks which are cooked perfectly to your liking. It's a bit pricy but then it is Marriott where everything is pricy. I can recommend the 14oz Ribeye Steak, delicious!!! If you fancy steak and you don't mind splashing out a bit the J W Steakhouse is an excellent place to go.

    Big old classy JW Marriott hotel on Park Lane, about a 10 minute walk from our hotel Marriott Park Lane at Oxford St. Very large steakhouse also with outdoor seating if desired. Our meal for two came to 155 pounds including drinks, taxes and tips. Fried Calamari was expensive mush so forget that. Caesar sald was good, not great, at 8 pounds. 10 oz NY Strip steaks were not in the class of a Ruth's Chris back home, but still the best steaks we've had in London. We shared a baked potato for 5 pounds. Bread Pudding so full of nuts it wasn't very good. We got there for 8 pm and while the outdoor section was full we were quite lonely inside.

    Knowing that steak is an expensive food in the UK, we picked a place that appears in most rankings for "Best Steak in London". In my opinion, food at JW Steakhouse is decent, but not outstanding. And especially not worth the 50 pounds per person for just a main course and a side each. I've been very happy to pay (more than) this money at other places such as Hawksmoore, but here: - I had to send my steak back because it was too well cooked. - Fries were very basic. - The "Asparagus with truffle salt" didn't have a hint of truffle in them. - We were charged for a cup of sauce, which is supposed to come with the steak. However, service was excellent (thanks, Brigitta from Hungary) and the place is nice. Will not be among my favourites.

    Took my boyfriend here for lunch midweek for his 30th birthday. The staff have us a window seat without having to ask and treated us well. Service was outstanding and never had to ask for anything. Though this place mainly deals with the business lunch crowd, I felt it was a relaxed choice for the occasion. Best filet steak I've ever ever had (especially the charring), and the cheesecake lived up to its name.

    With many choices in this area of London, this JW Steakhouse failed to perform like others I have eaten at. Waitress seemed not to understand anything requested . Fifteen minutes to have a cocktail served . ( only a handful of patrons in the resturarant ) The lamb ordered was cooked properly. Wife's hamburger dispite being assured it would be cooked medium was absolutely over cooked to the point of crumbling. It was not eaten.

    Great food. Quality steaks, although mine was slightly overcooked for rare, more medium than anything. Lovely place, the drinks menu is good. The only let down was the service which was a real shame. Took a long time to be served and some drinks took 2 minutes, some never arrived. Frustrating. Not entirely sure the waitress understood what we were saying. I would try again though for the food.

    I've got to say that the service at JW Steakhouse was exemplary. They were attentive, helpful and cheerful. I wasn't too enamoured with the onion soup but that didn't ruin the rest of the meal. It was just not something that was to my taste. The staff were lovely. I was mostly impressed with that. My guest and I had a lovely time and we will be going again.

    First, service was impeccable. Got both our orders exactly right in every detail. Second, the food was excellent, both the crab soup starter we both ordered and then especially the steaks, cooked exactly as requested, medium rare, tender and flavouful, just as steaks should always be. Also, recommend the creamed spinach. We saved a bit of space to share the recommended cheesecake. We shared one order and ate only half, not because it fell below the high standard of the rest of the meal. Seating, overall ambiance both fine with noise level allowing easy conversation across the table although restaurant was quite full. A great evening.

    We got there on time. The restaurant is vast and a bit lacking in character. It is also really dark, (so a no no on lovely hot sunny days). We were given menus pretty quickly and the waitress was helpful with making choices. Thereafter, it went downhill. We decided to order only one course. We waited over 45 minutes for this. When I enquired with the manager, she said it took a while to cook steaks and that we had only been waiting for 40 minutes and not 45 minutes - as if that was compensation! The food was delicious when it finally came, though my steak was cold. I couldn't be bothered to complain at that point. Everybody else seemed okay with theirs. Don't think I'd visit again. Nothing special.

    My friend and I had lunch here. It was excellent food, terrific service and the staff were friendly. I will certainly go there again. I have to say that the chips are to die for even though it is a steak house! The bearnaise sauce was good too as was the home made sorbet. Probably to the more expensive end of the market but you are eating in Mayfair.

    I've been a number of times for Sunday lunch at JW Steakhouse & think it is great - for the amount of food, it is good value (although once you add coffee or a glass of wine you will see a much larger bill). The steak (or lamb) & vegetables are plentiful - you will find it hard to finish. Only one downside to our meal & that was the dessert. We waited a very long time for it to come (over half an hour after ordering) & when it did, the rhubarb crumble which both of my dining companions ordered was very undercooked & the rhubarb hard to cut & eat. The chef refused to accept that & told them to order something else & we waited another half an hour. There was no real apology nor even offer of coffee. Hence a few less points.

    Everything about the meal was great: the location, the venue, the decor, the way the restaurant has been designed, the service, and most of the food (especially the chips which were delicious and a meal in themselves). .....but the steak, the highlight of the meal, was a disappointment. Regretably both our steaks were tough, which I wouldn't expect from a restaurant calling itself a Steakshouse! Perhaps we were unlucky. Will probably give it another try to see if this was true.
