    I visit Pescatori with Tesco clubcard vouchers - meaning dinner was effectively half price, and it would be overpriced for the quality without this discount. However this restaurant is in a great location amongst high end restaurants, the service is decent, the food is good and the wine acceptable, though the wine list is not that inspiring. Overall however an enjoyable night out and no complaints; there are just better equivalent restaurants for the full cost of the menu.

    From start to finish I was impressed! The service was top notch & the restaurant was beautiful. I ordered the calamari for starter, lobster themidor and the lemon tart for dessert. Each course was mouth watering. I'm definitely going to return back. The 30% off was a nice touch as well!

    This was our first visit to Pescatori and we were certainly not disappointed. Comfortable surroundings and friendly and attentive staff, at no time did we feel we were being rushed. Extensive menu which made our choice a difficult one, however, we both chose the half lobster main course which was full of flavour and not at all dry. We shared the Pannacotta with Raspberries and Grappa which was a perfect ending to a wonderful meal. The Opentable 30% discount was an added bonus. We will definitely return.

    I was looking for the perfect restaurant for a lunch catch up with an old friend. I am very pleased to have found Pescatori Italian. It was the ideal setting for a meal with the staff welcoming us with a friendly smile. The seating was comfortable and spacious. The staff were very efficient. If there was anything to criticise it would be perhaps they were too efficient as the table service seemed to operate to military precision style. The menu was extensive and catered for a wide range of tastes. I chose from the al a cart menu and I was not disappointed with my choices. I would love to return sometime and try the evening menu.

    Had another very good meal with two friends at Pescatori Mayfair. Food and service very good in particular the Dover Sole was succulent and delicious (wasn't the biggest Dover Sole I've had however) The Opentable deal of 30% off food makes the experience all the more enticing. will eat here again and the branch in Marylebone

    Pescatori has great food. We were warmly greeted at the door, taken to a nice table and our requests regarding the food were received without any issue. However one major issue with this restaurant and which will put me off going back is the temperature of the Prosecco and white wines which we had. The problem is that ALL the chilled wines were at that temperature so they really need to do something about this. I had to have ice with both aperitif and main course wine which is a shame. Otherwise this is a great place for pasta and fish lovers.

    Very nice seafood restaurant, excellent service but not absolutely top end, it needed the 30% offer to be good value in my opinion. Lovely italian flavours but a couple of mistakes, the calamari and sausage was overcooked, really stretching the definition of 'charred' and cod slightly over for our tastes too. Not major issues but fell short of top marks.

    Overall this was just fine but the food took ages to come out between courses even though it was a weeknight and there were only two tables occupied. The food was great but my overall experience was somewhat tarnished by the fact that they neglected to apply the OpenTable discount.

    The menu was extensive & had something to appeal to everyone. The food was well cooked & presented & the service was attentive. Although we mentioned that we were using the 30% offer when we arrived, the bill arrived with no discount so we had to point this out to get it amended, which was disappointing

We had 3 course each and everyone really enjoyed the food. Beautifully cooked and presented. Could not find a fault, not even a tiny one. We will definitely be back.

    Outstanding starter of tuna carpaccio and dessert of gnocchi. Main of tuna was very good, but tad gristle in part (not much, though, but enough to be noticeable). Zucchini side very good. Toptable discount made for appropriate level of money for food, although would have been just a bit expensive without the discount.mserive was very good until they became busy (just after we finished main), and thus took a long time to get dessert menu, for them to come back to us and take our order, and then once we finished dessert to pay--a total of about an hour from finishing main to paying. They initially forgot the toptable discount but quickly fixed this. Overall excellent seafood place.

    We chose the Top Table offer which was very good value (30% off food). We shared a starter of asparagus which was excellent and both our mains (Spaghetti alle Vongole and Tagliatelle al Granchio) were very good - tho the portions were enormous! We then shared a dessert of strawberries with basil which was really tasty. All in all, very good - and the staff were very friendly.

    It's a shame. I've given Pescatori one more chance and very disappointed by the food they are offering. The quality of the fish and other seafood are just not fresh and tasteless. They use their sauce to cover the blendness of their prawn, monkfish, squid and seabass (which we ordered). The only one that's got taste is the cockles. I guess they can get away with it if they are serving a non-regular seafood eater but for our table it was really disappointing. Oh, even the bread was stale, probably leftover from the night before. It's a shame because it's in a good location and the staff were polite and you can see they make an effort but the food just not good.

    a delightful Mayfair restaurant, lovely room very pleasant service and good food. I had oysters, which were fresh,delicious and presented as one would expect.My companion had dressed crab, again v good. We both went for the special of Turbot, which was again v.good served with caramelised shallots (these could have been a bit more caramelised) and new potatoes. then shared a desert which was good. the wine we had was not initially cool enough, however the bucket dealt with this and possibly a few pounds overpriced. the 30% off food opentable deal made a welcome reduction to a price I would say was correct for this restaurant. I will return

    Myself, my sister and her eleven year old son dined at Pescatori on Dover Street on a Saturday evening in early June, taking advantage of the 30% off food offer from OT. Pescatori's seafood choices and style of presentation are on a par with most top seafood restaurants in London but are significantly less expensive, especially so with the OT deal. We variously had lobster, cod and crab dishes, and freshness of all ingredients, including accompaniments, ensured complete enjoyment. The welcome we received was warm, and our request for a particular table was complied with. Service during the meal was attentive without being overbearing. Wine choice is extensive and well priced. I've dined here over many years and have yet to be disappointed.

    Food is nothing close to the Italian one they claim to bring to the table, being Italian I know what the dishes should have tasted like and I was very disappointed. The seafood wasn't tasty. I had the fritto misto as a starter, lacked flavour and salt, then followed my clams linguine that tasted nothing like the Italian recipe and shellfish was tasteless. The service was average, the ambience was ok, I would not recommend this to a friend.

    It is only the second time I have been here and both food and service has been outstanding. The staff give such a warm welcome and nothingis too much trouble. I am claustrophobic and they found me appropriate seating. The lobster is the best iv had in London. The cheese board is amazing. This little find has become my favourite place to go.

    On arrival, lovely foody aromas and comfortable looking seating. But in reality the table is too small, as it is already fairly crowded on arrival, then tapenade, Sicilain olives, bread and drinks are served and the long single sheet menus are fairly difficult to handle. The inevitable happened, a Bellini is knocked over. That was quickly and efficiently handled; but in silence.. However a nice touch; we had only a carafe of wine but it was kept in and served from an ice bucket ++. The menu reads very well, great ingredients and exciting combinations. But every dish was bland, bland, bland. Is that why the fairly hefty salt and pepper pots were on the table ? Sorry but i do not go out to dine and season the food myself. Big disappointment.
