A word from Orrery
In London’s chic and trendy enclave of Marylebone where designer shops vie for space with smart restaurants, Orrery provides a relaxed and stylish venue for shoppers, local residents and business people alike to enjoy very high quality classic French cooking. In keeping with the relaxed charm of this historic quarter, Orrery is housed in an old stable block, the space remade into something elegant and delightful with arched windows, a glass roofed area and a lively bar next door. The Orrery restaurant roof terrace is one of London’s great outdoor dining spaces. In fact, both the bar and sunny terrace are two of London’s finest sipping and basking spots, a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the West End. The menu is traditional French with classic dishes made exciting by inventive touches. The wine list is among London’s best and most extensive, running to more than fifty pages, and the head sommelier knows his stuff. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Everything about Orrery is designed to please. Beautiful surroundings, serene ambience, light, airy room with good space between tables for discussions of business or romance! Charming staff, excellent maître d and restaurant managers. Igor,s food looks beautiful and tastes divine, each dish perfectly judged - we'd be happy to eat anything on his menus. Interesting wine list, too, but could do with a few more decent selections under £30 for everyday drinking. We love Orrery and enjoy taking business and overseas guests there whenever we can.

  • "Food and service were very good. We sat on the terrace but it was an uncomfortably hot day which made me less hungry. Think I might have enjoyed it even more if I had chosen to sit in the air conditioned first floor. It was my second time at the restaurant. It did not disappoint but it did not make the same impact on me as the first experience. Given the heat, gazpacho was a good choice. Ravioli less so."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "A very enjoyable sunny evening on the terrace at Orrery. The service was excellent - friendly, professional and unobtrusive. The food was excellent and good value for money. The three course meal was supplemented with amuse bouche, petit fours along the way. The main course steak was perfectly cooked at medium rare."
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "As usual, no complaints. Food delightful, service and ambience even better."
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "Although Opentable deal, no diminution in either the food quality (inc. the amuse bouche) nor the service. The staff were highly professional and went above and beyond to ensure we were well looked after (without ever being intrusive). Even decorated an additional plate with a birthday message and extra truffles on learning it was one of the diner's birthdays. Made for a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience on all counts. Recommend highly."
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "We went to Orrery for a mid week lunch and made the most of the fixed price menu. It was good value with all delicious-sounding options. The food was fantastic. The servings were generous and the amuse bouche was a nice touch. We had the house wine, which was good. They ought to offer more choice on cost however, as the next wine on the list was £48 a bottle."

  • "Continuous to be an excellent restaurant. Criative, perfect service and wonderful food. Not to be missed."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "good experience.Charge for pre dinner champagne in the bar should not be added to dinner account and subject to additional 12.5% service charge"
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "Orrery remains a favourite for always having something that is really special- the seafood raviolo in lobster bisque starter was the triumph of the day. And it was pretty great to enjoy dining on the terrace on this warm summer's day- do ask for it or you'll eat in the restaurant. My main course was good without being remarkable and service was attentive, if a little too business like. Still, that's unusual in a restaurant that I otherwise list as a perennial favourite."
    dined on 13/07/2014
  • "The food is undoubtedly very good indeed. I was somewhat disappointed by the service. There were things that just weren't sharp enough for a Michelin starred restaurant. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad but a number of things just weren't right. . The Terrace is great for a summer's evening. At the end of our time there it was the food which stood out."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Went for our daughters 22nd birthday. Had a 9pm reservation for the 3 course set menu. Called at 8:20 and they were happy to let us come earlier. Staff were wonderful! Prior to each course they brought a little something which was complimentary; savory profiteroles, Meiji cucumber soup, lemon cream sorbet. At they end they brought a beautiful plate of Bon bons with happy birthday written in chocolate. All very nice for a special celebration!"
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "A beauiful restaurant in the heart of Marylebone. Great value on the lunch menu with outstanding food. Perfect for business by day and social occasions by night"
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "A lovely evening at the Orrery. The food was very good (rump of lamb was excellent) but the service was outstanding. Delightful leafy outlook through large semi-circular windows over Marylebone Church. We hope to go back soon."
    dined on 06/07/2014
  • "I love the room at Orrery - it has the most amazing light during the day, yet is cosy in the evening too. Its the kind of place where you can hear your partners conversation - so only go here with people you want to talk to! The food is good - our starters and desserts were really lovely, the main course a bit of a disappointment if we're truthful (rather chewy shin of beef, and plaice with anchovies which was nice but not mindblowing). They made a fuss of the birthday girl and provided extra chocolates, which was a nice touch, and the overall bill was very reasonable given the service and all the extra little touches."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Most enjoyable lunch with old friends of family. Good choice of set meal and the dishes chosen were well prepared and well presented, but wine list lacks reasonably priced bottles. High standard of service."
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "Nice meal outside on new terrace. Good food. Good service. My only gripe was that my fellow diner chose a main meal from the more expensive of the set menus and i was charged the full difference between them. Waiter should have said this at the outset and we would have then chosen from the starters on the more expensive menu. Or, more correctly, charge a portion of the difference."
    dined on 01/07/2014
  • "Amazing food and the best possible service with a team that was not only genuinely attentive and responded to every request, but that truly appeared to be enjoying their jobs! Made the experience even more compelling."
    dined on 30/06/2014
  • "This is my 4th lunch at the Orrery in the past 9 months.The prix fixe menu is not only the best value of its type in London but contains dishes whose variety excludes no taste and drives few diners to the fearsomely costly a LA carte. A piece of advice,the house wines are really OK because the wine list contains a few shocks,e.g Sancerre at £45!l'llbe back soon."
    dined on 30/06/2014
  • "I wouldn't change a thing about our experience at Orrery. Everything was superb! From the greeting when we arrived, to the beautiful décor, to the delicious food, to the fabulous presentation, to the impeccable service, nothing was amiss. I would go back to Orrery anytime, and recommend it to anyone looking for a wonderful dining experience."
    dined on 29/06/2014
  • "The Orrery serves really delicious food. We had the £30 three course meal which we felt was fantastic value for money. The service was amazing. Very attentive but discreet. I would definitely recommend."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "My wife and I went for a Friday lunch for a special occasion. The choice was good and the food was delicious. The service prompt and attentive but not rushed. The ability to interchange some dishes on the set menu with the a la carte menu with no hesitation from the waiter was great customer service. The amuse-bouche was also a nice touch."
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "We very much enjoyed our 3 course meals here. We had a special menu they have on Thursday and it was lovely. On top of the 3 courses we were treated to a tasty amuse bouche. House wines were also suprisingly good."
    dined on 26/06/2014
  • "The food was delicious and the service was great. I would recommend it without the slightest hesitation. Excellent value for money if you choose the set menu."
    dined on 25/06/2014
  • "Lovely rooftop bar/restaurant. Very good service and wonderfull food. Alcohol was a little pricey but no different to other restaurants in the area."
    dined on 24/06/2014
  • "Enjoyed lunch at Orrery, service is attentive as always and the food is superb."
    dined on 23/06/2014
  • "It was four of us including a sommelier and wine merchant. We were impressed with the quality of the food and wine, as well as the attentive, but not intrusive service. We all loved it and would surely be happy to come back."
    dined on 22/06/2014
  • "I went to Orrery for my Birthday dinner. We had a great table that felt private and un crowded. There was a great choice on the Prix Fix menu, the food was really delicious. I even got some surprise Birthday chocolates from the restaurant at the end. An all round great experience."
    dined on 22/06/2014
  • "We really enjoyed a nice summer evening on that beautiful terrace. Food was original, sophisticated and tasty, and service overall very good and pleasant. We will be back."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "we visited the Orrery for lunch with friends and had a really relaxed, extended (!) lunch. The food was lovely and the service was excellent, attentive without being too stiff and formal (we could have survived pouring our own wine and water but that is us). The vegetarian starter was disappointing compared to the others but this was rectified instantly with different offers and we chose some delicious desserts, for which we were not charged.The staff could not have done more to make us feel welcome and valued. Altogether it was a superb experience and we will definitely dine there again."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Absolutely wonderful food, wonderful service - It has been a long time since we went to a restaurant where the gastronomy and service superseeded all expectations. Highly recommend and can't wait to return."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "Another lovely evening at the Orrery. The food never disappoints and this visit was no exception. We'll be back"
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "We had a very tight slot of 11/2 hours fir lunch and we were served two courses very efficiently without us feeling rushed."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "We really enjoyed lunch in the restaurant and were delighted with the little extra touches of the amuse bouche and post-prandial chocolates with our coffee on the delightful new terrace. If you're looking for cosy and intimate it's not the place - the decor is cool and minimalist - but the food was exquisite, and the tender beef in a Madeira jus, from the menu du jour, was outstanding. Likewise, the service was attentive but never snooty and one wasn't made to feel a fool for asking for the odd translation. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and will return."
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "Another fantastic experience at the Orrery. Food & service exceptional. Coincided with the Marylebone Summer Fair making it a very special evening."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "We opted for the set tasting menu with accompanying wine - easier than making decisions from the a la carte. Overall it was very good. Highlights were the beef course and the desert - chocolate orange desert. The wines were all excellent and made a real difference to each course. The lobster and mango salad was disappointing though - small, chewy bits of lobster, and we noticed that this would have been a £10 supplement on the a la carte menu, so we would have been doubly disappointed had we ordered from there. Back on a positives - lots of small touches add to the experience - a couple of amuse bouche, nice chocolates to finish. The restaurant itself had a nice feel - and managed to feel spacious, busy and intimate at the same time."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • " We booked for a lunch deal to celebrate a birthday and it was great to discover a new restaurant. We had an amazing table by a huge round window with the sun streaming through the windows from the upper terrace. The staff were fantastic, we were very well looked after, not rushed at all. We chose from the offer menu and although the choice was limited the food was quite simply delicious. The wine list is quite extensive and we couldn't fault our dining experience at all. I would definitely recommend The Orrery."
    dined on 13/06/2014
  • "Lovely business lunch - expensive but worth it. The service is always fantastic without being over-attentive or obsequious."
    dined on 12/06/2014
  • "Did the £30 for three courses offer for dinner. Excellent food and good wine list. Dining outside on the terrace upstairs was fantastic as well."
    dined on 11/06/2014
  • "We had dinner at Orrery on Marylebone High Street for my sister's birthday on Tuesday and it was a really lovely experience. There were 7 of us and they went to great lengths to accommodate us outside on the lovely rooftop terrace (as it was a beautiful evening) and to bring a special birthday dessert for my sister. The food was excellent - I would particularly recommend the potato and truffle ravioli - and good value as we took advantage of the 3 courses for £30 offer. In addition, there were lots of lovely little extras like 2 different amuse bouches, delicious bread (particularly the fig) and chocolate truffles to finish. The service was fantastic and very attentive. I would definitely return and would certainly recommend it to others."
    dined on 10/06/2014
  • "This was my second time dining at Orrery and once again I took advantage of the three courses and Bellini for £32 offered on Sunday. It was another evening of delicious food and impeccable service, including a thoroughly professional sommelier service. Unfortunately, our small party of myself, my sister and her eleven year old son, couldn't take advantage of Orrery's beautiful roof terrace on what was a sultry summer's evening, since I'd left it too late to book through OpenTable."
