A bit of a well-kept secret, 34 Mayfair is 150 metres from Oxford Street and 200 from Bond, but far enough away from the madding crowds to be a real “find”.
I have been to the restaurant before and it was a lovely experience but last night ( maybe because of the current situation) they were rushed off their feet. The service was awful. The food was average as was the desert.
The Christmas decoration was absolutely stunning!
We were seated 20 min late and asked to leave 50 min into our meal. The desert was ordered but not served as we were rushed to settle the bill. Disappointing experience. The food was mediocre, half of the menu was not available and the first wine was corked second had sediment. It was meant to be a special day for my daughter's birthday and it was completely ruined.
I will not be coming back.
(Maria the Metre 'D was great and really made an effort but it was spoiled by the rest of the service team, Christmas decoration is probably the best in London shame about everything else)
Manager who was serving had a severe attitude problem..
Fantastic restaurant. Staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Cannot wait to return. Excellent visit !
The restaurant decor was absolutely stunning and the staff were quite attentive throughout our meal. The food was pretty decent, the highlights for us were the seared scallops and The 34 Hamburger, both were delicious and cooked perfectly. The rest of the dishes we ordered were somewhat underwhelming, especially the side dishes. We also had to wait around by the crowded reception area for roughly 25-30 minutes for our table, which felt like it was quite close to the other tables around us..
Beautifully decorated for Christmas, if you wasn’t in the Christmas spirit before then this restaurant will change that completely.
Wonderful option of food, great service and lovely atmosphere.
Very good ambition good food but they get £2 per person expect service charge that was a little disgusting 🤢
The food was very average and they made a couple of mistakes on the order (no sides arrived with the fish, the waiter never asked if we wanted anything with the fish and when we ordered later the potatoes never arrived! Also, the chicken was missing from the Caesar salad so one of the guests had to wait an extra 10 mins for their meal) otherwise STUNNING venue and nice wine list.
Excellent service by every single staff member from the manageress to the waiting staff to the hostess made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The famous Christmassy interiors are absolutely gorgeous. The main course of a sharing chateaubriand for two was excellent. The doughnuts with chocolate & raspberry sauces and lemon curd were fabulous. The starters of prawn cocktail and scallops were average but the champagne more than made up for it.
Very impressed at the friendliness and efficiency of this team at 34. Well done to every single staff member and merry Christmas to you all
Fantastic brunch- delicious food and great service as always
Wonderful ambience especially around X-Mas time, excellent food and service. Highly recommendable.
Excellent! Just what we needed to get into the Xmas vibe
The Christmas decor is fabulous! I had a late booking and got stuck in traffic and they held my table and let me pre book my food before the 10pm cut off time so a massive thank you for being so nice! The sole fish was fabulous.
We went to see the Christmas decorations mostly and didn’t expect much from the food. But the food and cocktails were delicious! I highly recommend visiting this place - with or without Christmas decorations.
Very good experience however, seating was “packed” in a little to close for the expenditure value for the meal. Would have expected more distance from table to table. Food and service absolutely excellent and location perfect. We sat by the door area which was drafty on account of the queuing to get in by people and also those waiting. There was a waiting crowd by the door which I felt was not a good look and as I was sitting near the door felt like there were people looking over your shoulder while you ate. The bill was circa £200 for two therefore expected more. As I said, food and service was first class which rescued this review.
Loved it. The restaurant was super busy understandably as the Xmas decor is beautiful. We were a little delayed getting seated and our first drinks took over half an hour to come but when we complained, the staff were so sweet and accommodating and gave us an amazing table with extended time! Would definitely recommend!
Fantastic Evening, amazing decor. Can’t wait to visit again
Food was lovely, really nice feel for Xmas but the services was pretty bad. Had to ask for order to be taken, ask for plates to be taken away, ask for dessert menu. We were basically left until
We wanted somewhere special for our first office get together in a while snd 34 Mayfair didn’t disappoint. The festive decor is spectacular. I did feel the food , whilst good , is overpriced but we really enjoyed our meal, the atmosphere was lovely and it was nice not to be rushed even though the restaurant was full with tables waiting. Will return.
Was one of my favorite restaurants.....
Don’t know if I will return.
First time going to this restaurant and I loved it. Loved the decor with the baubles, took lots of pictures! Service was OK. Food bit pricey but expected. Looking forward to coming hear again at some point soon!
Excellent location, Christmas decorations are insane. Good meal and service enjoyable evening.
The staff were outstanding! They took such good care of us and our little boy. The food was delicious as always and the festive decorations very special. Consistently delivers, will keep returning.
Thank you for a lovely birthday meal. Food was delicious, service was fantastic from all staff.
Music was so bad!
Went for a lunch. Really wanted to see the Christmas decs and they did not disappoint. Great service from friendly & professional staff. I enjoyed my chicken Caesar salad immensely. Frites we’re also top drawer.
Very good service despite it being very busy, it was my boyfriends birthday and he was susprised with a dessert that made the night even more special.
lovely decor very christmassy. really enjoyed the cocktails
The starter was delicious but the mains were mediocre at best and very disappointing for the price. I had to ask for my pizza to be reheated. The service was hit and miss; sometimes very attentive and sometimes could not get their attention.
The best place to go in London for a festive Christmas meal <3
Absolutely appalling service, we was served by multiple waitresses and waiters throughout dinner none which ever seemed to know what was going on; drinks and food served to the wrong diners, there was just no personal service that i would expect from a Mayfair restaurant. Also was not given a drink menu on arrival and after giving them the benefit of the doubt and thinking surely they must be bringing one over, after 20 mins seated had to ask for one. Whole place seemed as if it was their first time working in a restaurant. The head hostess was introducing herself to staff on the restaurant floor, was just very unprofessional. Food was ok, not great considering the price; Scallops were cold and lobster mac and cheese contained hardly any lobster.... very disappointing. That said the decor of the restaurant was beautiful and couldn't fault that. Maybe we went on a bad day because I have heard great things but I would not be recommending.
Very busy restaurant beautifully decorated for Xmas. Very safe with temperature machine at entrance. Service very quick at busy time. Food excellent but menu a bit limited.
It was always very difficult to get hold of a waiter or member of staff for anything. Sometimes we had to stand up to get someone’s attention
Top notch!! As always
See you all in a month 😓🥩
Really loved the ambience, very pretty and cozy inside. The steak was nice and cooked properly. The sides I had were terrible tho, spinach was dry and looked very very sad, the side salad was too salty. Other than that, good place for dinner and very friendly staff.
Location top, food very good but waiters not kind at all!!
Love the restaurant, consistently great food and service! Great atmosphere and best Christmas decs in London!
Apart from the celebratory external decor honouring Boris Johnson upon entry... the interior Christmas decor looked amazing and the food and service was second to non.
Very ordinary as always.
