When you walk through the deco doors and onto the polished oak parquet of 34 Mayfair, you could easily be seduced by the soft lighting, Upper East Side-style elegance and unflustered calm; yet there is also just the tiniest hint of the nonconformist about this restaurant. Whether it’s the mischievous etchings by Tracey Emin in the eponymous private room upstairs – The Emin Room; the “wild cards” on the menu (the decadent truffled lobster mac springs to mind); or indeed the eclectic collection of paintings from the next strain of YBAs adorning the walls, it’s difficult to pinpoint. But you know that at 34 Mayfair, you’re probably going to end up having rather a lot of fun, whether it’s lunch, dinner or brunch, which is served on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the summer months.

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”.

Second time in 34 Mayfair.

Pros:
Ambience is nice, food is very good! Salads, steaks, tar-tars, cocktail- everything was excellent.
Doormen are incredibly helpful and polite. Love it!

Cons: Waiters are not very expierenced, they can forget knifes for steaks or bring other people’s meal, but it’s not such a big deal.
When you make a booking, ask table further from the kitchen, otherwise it’s too smelly to sit too close.

The only redeeming factor of this restaurant was the piano player
Service was fair but the food awful
Argentine steak!? More like shoe leather and my chicken had a spicy barbecue sauce that I think came from McDonald’s
Don’t bother!

A bit pricey, but the menu, presentation and service are excellent. A good "people watching" place. Although I cannot understand why so many people come to dine in such an upscale venue dressed like they are getting a burger at McDonald's.

A pleasing warm and attentive welcome followed by a caring,efficient service.Food presentation could scarcely have been better with the starter described by my wife as being a work of art.And the wine slipped down very nicely.In summary, an enjoyable lunch in a high quality restaurant.This was our second visit to 34.There will be more.

The food was good but the tuna I had was over cooked and had white beans with it which just did not match the tuna. We also had lobster with pasta. It was far too rich. Too much cream. They must have spilt the cream pot!
I was disappointed by the food and expected something better. I think the dishes are a bit old fashioned in their preparation

We ate as a group of four. The staff were attentive, knowledgable and courteous, which is what you would expect from such an establishment. When our order arrived, we were each delighted with our choices. I started with shrimp, followed by stone bass and finished with the banoffee panna cotta - it was superb!
All in all we had a wonderful family meal. We would definitely recommend 34 Mayfair to anyone...and will return! Thank you

The food is great, nice atmosphere, relaxed meal. Service was a bit erratic though. Overly attentive at times and non-existent at others eg I got asked for an aperitif order but the guy ran off before my partner ordered one. Got asked 3 times in 5 mins if we wanted wine by different people, but sat for a while trying to get attention when we wanted to order dessert. Just needs to be regulated a bit more- everyone helpful and friendly though.

It was good to revisit this outstanding Mayfair restaurant. Out of our group of seven extended family members, five were visiting from the States. The restaurant is very bright and the tables are well separated, so the ambient noise is kept down. Service was friendly and efficient . The menu combines traditional, modern English with some fusion dishes, well prepared and presented. This is Mayfair, so some of the wines on the expensive list are pricey, but there are some delicious better priced options. It did not disappoint.
