- LunchtimeflakeydoveDined on 14/10/2014Visited the square for the first time with high expectations , which I'm pleased to were More than matched. The set lunch was superb with quality, presentation and new flavours to the fore. Portions were generous but light , perfect for lunch and I'm looking forward to my next visitSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Sunday bestMimmyDined on 12/10/2014Looking for fine dining on a Sunday? Look no further than The Square. The restaurant was full and they were taking second sittings which suggests there is a need for Sunday opening. Most importantly, the food and service were top class. From the very first mouthful, delicious flavours, expertly cooked and presented. Service was excellent. Hooray for continuing to offer an a la carte menu.Special Features:
- Day Ruined By Food PoisioningDarrenDined on 11/10/2014This is first review i've ever written of a restaurant but felt compelled to due to after effects of the meal. We got the lunch deal on Saturday, the restaurant seemed nice and waiting staff were very attentive but, what was supposed to be the beginning of an enjoyable day, was ruined when my fiance got food poisioning, she spent the remainder of the day doubled over - not great after spending so much on a lunch!! Plans for the rest of the day had to be cancelled so not a great experience all round!!Special Features:
- Best Meal Experience Yet!GourmetZoeDined on 11/10/2014I went here with my partner for a special Saturday lunch and after looking forward to eating here for years- I was certainly not disappointed! The restaurant itself is elegant, yet comfortable. The service is extremely professional, but still personal and friendly. The set lunch menu is very good value for money: every mouthful was sublime. Every flavour was well balanced, every texture a sensory pleasure, the ingredients of the highest quality and the cooking perfect. Everything was presented beautifully- without being over complicated or fussy. There are stunning wines to suit every budget and they are also very accommodating to dietary requirements, without being patronising. When can we go again, please?Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Superb Meal and ServiceWMBDDined on 6/10/2014This meal was outstanding in every way. We had the set menu lunch with a beef carpaccio starter followed by veal although this bare description does not do it justice. We also had an amuse bouche and a dessert. The presentation of the courses in terms of visual appeal and delicate fusion of flavours was faultless. Our waiter was friendly, welcoming and efficient, as was the sommelier. The head waiter was also attentive, without being intrusive. We will return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always goodLenaDined on 3/10/2014Dinner at The Square is becoming a 'MUST' whenever we go to London. Our latest visit was just as good as the previous ones - at least! We love it all, the food, the wine list and the impeccable service. The only problem we've ever had at The Square: We always wish we'd had some of our food/wine loving friends with us, shared experiences are so much better!Special Features:
- Superb 2* running smoothlyBroduleDined on 1/10/2014Excellent lunch with good wines by the glass. But watch the bill;-)Special Features:
- 5 Star Dining ExperienceBriggersDined on 27/9/2014The Square's reputation is richly deserved. The ambience created the perfect setting for a fantastic food and paired wine tasting experience. The dining room was compact but in no way stuffy and the staff were genuinely friendly and looking to engage with diners who were interested in the food and wine pairings. Particular thanks to the sommelier for indulging all of our many wine questions.Special Features:
- PerfectOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 26/9/2014A beautiful, seasonal, collection of ingredients, wonderfully concocted and severed at a level that would suit every one.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food, great service!RodrigoVIPDined on 25/9/2014We had a very good time at the Square. The restaurant may be a little too loud for some people but overall, it's a great experience!
- Superb experienceClackmanDined on 25/9/2014I've been dining at the Square for more than 10 years. I believe that my first experience there was in 2000, and the meal was superb. Since then, there have been a few occasions that left me a bit disappointed, but recently it has regained its footing. The tasting menu on my most recent experience (late September 2014) was excellent. The wine list has some very good values. The servers are attentive and helpful. I like the informality and lack of pretension. Highly recommended.Special Features:
- A fine lunchnata21byDined on 25/9/2014Went there for a wedding anniversary with my husband. Apart from slow service at the beginning when they placed us in a waiting area for 20 minutes although we didn't really want it as our time available for lunch was limited (i.e. they effectively were running late at midday), everything else went smoothly - the food was excellent which is the main thing! One day I will go there again.Special Features:
- Has seen its peakXianDined on 24/9/2014We have been frequenting this place for several years and have always enjoyed our visits. However this time we noticed that the dishes have become "over sophisticated" and somewhat too creatif. Whereas in the past there were well cooked dishes on offer, now the chef has gone done the alley with impressive sounding ones. Also service is not up to scratch anymore. We were two and for each dish they were first discussion (next to the table) who will get which plate......... It seems that we are not the only ones having realised this, as not all tables were occupied, this contrary to our previous visits.Special Features:
- Excellent overall experience21SCEDined on 20/9/2014Excellent food and service, high standards but still relaxed , discreet yet attentive.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- superb overall experiencestuh1Dined on 19/9/20142nd visit to The Square. superb dining experience. one nice personal touch, after they found out it was my birthday, was a dining card, complete with my choice for the night, singed by the main man himself. if you like good food with excellent service, then it is a 'must try'.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- lisaDined on 16/9/2014Had the set lunch menu.The food was delicious. Orange soufflé amazing!!Special Features:
- Great foodchocoDined on 15/9/2014Great food, good service but not sure it was 2 Michelin star standard. There were only 2 choices of bread (white or brown but the same type of bread) and it was served only once. They took my plates each time a bit early so I felt a bit rushed. Overall I enjoyed my meal but it would have been better if there was something special than other 1 Michelin star restaurants.Special Features:
- Fine dining in MayfairthegallopinggourmetVIPDined on 12/9/2014The food at The Square is superb, service is more relaxed than in other 2* establishments (a good thing) and there's a really decent range of wine price points. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner although our table wasn't ideal (next to the serving point from the kitchen). The room could do with an update now but the overall vibe is still Mayfair sophistication and the food is wow! A+
- Excellent food, superb service!gaborgyDined on 12/9/2014Visited the restaurant with my daughter with quite high expectations. Our tasting menu was creative and hit the highest quality. One of the best wine pairing we ever had, congrats to the sommelier! The service was engaging and especially attentive.Special Features:
- 10 Course Tasting Menualexholmes1988Dined on 8/9/2014The whole experience was exquisite from beginning to end, made all the better by the always attentive and friendly waiters and sommeliers. The food was outstanding (as you'd expect from a 2 Michelin starred restaurant) and even though the portions may be small, after the final course I don't think we could have eaten any more! The wine list was expansive (>70 pages) and our glasses were never empty as they were constantly being topped up, but it was being done non-obtrusively and our time at the restaurant remained personal and private.Special Features:
- UnderwhelmingOpenTable Diner Since 2014VIPDined on 8/9/2014I understand this was set lunch menu, but the food was very mediocre and boring. I had a wonderful lunch set menu at places like pollen street social and la trompette which are both 1 star, so I had a higher expectation for the square, but it didn't quiet deliver the experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Gourmet experiencelegrang133VIPDined on 6/9/2014Amazing food , impeccable service and a formidable wine list. The decor is rather old fashion and the crowd is fifty plus. The menu is fixed and it is either a tasting menu or a 3 course meal. Do not go unless you are not prepared to have a long and full meal.Special Features:

- Lunch on 29 August 2014PattinsonDined on 29/8/2014Met Canadian friends and was proud of our choice of venue. Excellent Sommelier and food was exquisite. Canadian vegetarian was happy with the options for her. Only downside was that THREE times the waiter's got the wrong dishes. The amuse bouche got mixed up, The vegetarian got the foie gras starter and my Husband got her veggie dish.She was mortified and then reproached my Husband for ordering it in the first place !!!!! Then the main courses had to switched around too. Despite this an excellent lunch. Alison PattinsonSpecial Features:
- MemorableJEF4dinnerDined on 26/8/2014The Square is one of the finest French restaurants that I have ever had the pleasure of dining in...fantastic, a 10/10.Special Features:
- Masterpieces of plates!TrevigianoVIPDined on 23/8/2014Extraordinary Restaurant on the same chain than Ledbury actually even superior, in fact these Restaurants are changingi forever the meaning of eating, pressed to keep down prices at lunch to attract businness costumers, at The Square a lunch menu cost actually like a fish and chip with a starter and a Bier in a anonimous Pub! What's making history is that to keep so low prices, but at two Michelin Stars level! Chef must invent how to use normal ingredients to make extraordinary results. So sitting at the table you will be served a 'Opera d'arte' such as Gioconda Paint at Louvre or David statue at Florence: Same artigianal ability to create an ephemeral art of which we became part with the act of eating it. As result we same become art!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food and serviceBananamanDined on 22/8/2014The Square is wonderful restaurant with exceptional food and wine. The service was excellent and the team made you feel very welcome and were on hand to help you select from the menu where deciding was difficult as there were too many options that tempted us, as well as selecting a perfect white wine to accompany the meal. The highlight of the evening was the cheese course where we tried 7 different cheeses with a brilliant red wine. Well done I will be back soon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Ideal for refined palateFabienHDined on 22/8/2014The atmosphere was ideal for a lovely romantic dinner. The staff were helpful and thoughtful, adjusting the aircon for our table without the need to ask was nice. We took the tasting menu and the food was excellent, especially the starters and desserts. The mains were very good but not to the level of the other courses.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Friendly genuine service fab foodAndEaterDined on 16/8/2014A real wow experience, fantastic quality food, personal friendly service. And an inexpensive but quality bottle of wine. Genuine excitement around our table as each course of our amazing 9 course tasting menu was brought to our tableSpecial Features:
- Top notchcanuckDined on 16/8/2014This is an excellent special occasions restaurant. The food was delicious and even had mini courses in between courses. The service was amazing - anticipated our every move. I enjoyed that they were able to have a joke with us as it made us feel more comfortable.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Tasting Menu at The SquareemilieVIPDined on 16/8/2014Everything was absolutely fantastic. We celebrated our first year anniversary at The Square and took the Tasting menu. All the starters were excellent, the main courses delicious and the desserts... the fig soufflé was one of the best desserts we've ever had! I definitely recommend everyone to try! Service was great also and knew how to pour wine properly. The only improvement might be on the bread selection (only 2 different types)... but that really didn't stop us to spend an amazing evening.Special Features:
- Brilliant!ReefermanDined on 16/8/2014The staff - without exception - were fantastic. Friendly, helpful and welcoming but never pushy or over-bearing. The food was amazing - and a cheeseboard that looked (and tasted!) out-of-this-world. Throughly recommended - not a bad table in the restaurant!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Right1Dined on 13/8/2014Seasonal ingredients cooked perfectly, the emphasis on balance and flavour and presented beautifully. This is a proper Michelin starred restaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed a delicious langoustine starter and then an even better early season grouse main. Accomplished front of house and a helpful sommelier. London is blessed with many good restaurants and this is clearly one of the very best.Special Features:

- DogsdinerDined on 11/8/2014We had the set lunch. The food was amazing with every element of the dishes contributing to the whole in taste and texture. Ambiance rather austere, service good but not quite the unobtrusive ease we have experienced in other similar restaurants.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
