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.

    This restaurant occupies a first floor in the smart area of Marylebone High Street. It is nicely spaced inside with a white linen approach. The £27-50 menu of 3 courses gave me a lovely pumpkin soup, salmon poached to my choice, and a tarte tatin. We shared a bottle of malbec - one of the few reasonably priced wines on an extensive wine list. Service was very efficient and professional. The presentation of all the dishes was very attractive. Many other customers seemed to be business visitors and it clearly somewhere to impress your guests.

    I booked the three course pre-theatre dinner which has three or four choices for each course. You are also served an amouse bouche, pre-desert etc. so it ends up being about seven courses. The food was very good and excellent value, especially for central London

    The Orrery is our favourite London restaurant and we chose it to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed. We had the Menu Gourmand, as it had most of the items we would have chosen anyway. The 5-course meal was, in fact more like 8 courses, with all the extra taster dishes. The menu included scallops, foie gras, lobster and mango salad, Tournedos Rossini and a chocolate and mango ice dessert. Every dish tasted wonderful, and each was just enough to delight the palate but not make us too full to finish. With the help of the wine waiter we selected lovely white and red wines to complement our food. Service was, as always, friendly and efficient. A superb evening. Thank you Orrery!

    A great venue - not cramped - smart yet not stuffy - excellent selection of wines by the glass - v. good wine list - the food was faultless - tasty amuse bouche and other tasters come automatically between courses. Options are a set Menu Gourmande, a set Vegetarian Menu and a fixed price three course menu where one can select the courses from about a dozen options for starters and main courses and about 8 for dessert. So not the place if you only fancy one course. Not an inexpensive meal but we felt it was well worth it. Thoroughly recommend.

    We'd heard a lot about Orrery and I'm pleased to say the rumours are true, it's excellent. We got the last slot on the 3 courses for £30 which includes additionals such as a delicious cheese (Camembert to guess) filled profiteroles, a celeriac amuse bouche and a lemon palette cleanser which was exceptional. The service was attentive, always on hand but discrete. As it should be. I cannot recommend Orrery highly enough. The 3 courses for £30 is unbelievable value.

    Myself and boyfriend ate at The Orrery on Fri 17th October and were disappointed with the food - it was cooked ok, not sure about the mix of citrus with the fish meals (salmon served with grapefruit). We expected something a bit more special for the price of the food and did not think it was good value for money.

    Early evening dinner doesn't come much better than this. From the friendly professional welcome to the helping on with coats afterwards, this was an object lesson in how to make a dinner occasion special. To describe our starters as 'smoked salmon' and 'crab' does neither dish justice - especially after two amuse bouches and wonderful fresh bread. Fish and tournedos mains were superb, with wines choreographed to perfection. The Orrery is a bit of an 'elder statesman' in Marylebone now - on this evidence, it deserves to be there a great deal longer: no wonder it was pretty full on a mid-week evening.

    Delicious food, romantic setting, good value with the Open Table offer. Went for dinner with my husband and another couple, had a great time. Food was creative and very tasty. Good wine menu. Atmosphere is maybe a bit lacking or verging more on romantic side so would go with couples rather than large group of friends. Suitable for special occasions.

    Dined on 10/10/2014
    We had a perfectly nice 3 courses for £30 deal. The menu was varied and the starters in particular were all very tempting. The wine was very expensive. The atmosphere was very sterile and dry. The service, while very attentive, was let down by constant mistakes and misunderstandings related to the staff's poor command of English. This was a bit of a let down in an otherwise good performance. I would definately return to this restaurant. We had a really good meal and a nice time but if you are paying top dollar then it demands a top dollar experience.

    I chose Orrery to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. Our party numbered six people. We were all very impressed with the restaurant. The Sunday menu was good value, even with wine and cocktails, offered plenty of choice and the one gluten-intolerant member of our party was very well looked after. All the waiters were wonderfully attentive and helpful. The food was beautifully cooked and presented, the ambience in the restaurant was peaceful and relaxing. Altogether a memorable evening.

    Excellent value 3 course lunch at The Orrery. Beautiful presented plates, thoughtful portion size, interesting amuse bouche of mushrooms, celeriac purée and foam and attentive waiters. Nice touches include: not being given a cloakroom ticket, and the right coat being returned to me; waiters who walk discretely ahead of you to the loo and open two doors so you are not left standing wondering where to go, or having to ask, and wine by the 375 carafe not just a bottle and an excellent cheese board. Only minor gripe was plates whipped away as soon as we'd finished and the next course served straight away. A little pause between courses would be have been appreciated but when we asked for this, it was certainly acknowledged graciously.

    I visited Orrery on a Thursday evening with an old friend. I arrived early and was shown to the upstairs terrace. I had a large briefcase with me and asked if there was a cloakroom. The lady at reception said she would take care of it. She took it away without the need for a ticket. A small touch but nice. When my partner arrived we were seated and chose our courses and wine quickly. I asked the waiter to check if my choices were gluten free (as I am a coeliac) and he was able to quickly confirm that they were. He then brought some gluten free bread to the table. The overall level of service and the quality of the food was excellent. It was a great meal but at £196 for two (including a bottle of wine and pre-dinner drinks) was a bit pricey.
