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”.

We came to celebrate our anniversary. We heard so much about this place and came with a high expectations especially because they promoted themselves as a place to have a good meat. The starters we took - hamachi and iberico were okay but nothing special. I took black truffle risotto for main- which was fine but not spectacular. My gf took usda sirloin which she wanted medium rare. The steak came over cooked- was more than medium. They redid the steak, but still unfortunately the flavour wasn’t amazing. The beef wasn’t so juicy and was so lack of seasoning. The service on the other hand was a bit cold. There was the girl- which we assumed a chef de rang; gave a very cold service with no smile. Dropping stuff on the table without explanation or at least some friendliness. Over £300 bill was not so worthy for the experience and the food. The only brilliant thing they had was the door man outside, he was super nice, very accommodating and hospitable. I wish everyone else there was like him! Anyway we won’t come back nor recommend this place

Third visit, this time for a business lunch. Food and ambience and fabulous as always, but service a little off. Both from front of house and our server. No wine list brought to the table so we had to ask. When we finished our bottle of champagne it was removed without our knowledge and no offer of a new bottle or the wine list back. We were a group of women - maybe that was it... I hope not and that they were just having an off afternoon.

This used to be one of my go to restaurants where you paid a bit more but were guaranteed an amazing meal and all around experience. It clearly was not just a bad day, the level of service and food quality is now substandard from beginning to end.

Restaurant is beautifully decorated with a very nice doorman! Food is pricey but the restaurant service is not as exceptional as the food. Had the lobster mac n cheese, onion rings, mashed potatoes & Argentinian sirloin with a fried egg! Me & my boyfriend loved the food and we don’t mind the price but the service has to go with it.

We had dinner at this restaurant on Jan 1st. Our expectations were not very high because of some not so favorable reviews. I am not sure what people were complaining about, because everything about this place was fantastic. We had 2 strollers and two babies and a toddler in our group, and they were so accommodating. From the unique interior and ambiance, to the delicious food and the exceptional service, this restaurant delivered well above our expectations and some. It turned out to be a very memorable and exquisite dinner, which was a great start to the New Year! Thank you 34 Mayfair!

The ambiance was amazing! All of the Christmas decorations were really nice. The food was good, but we expected better. Appetizers (buratta and crab apps) were good. Our entrees were ok, but ice creams after dinner were good. Worth going for the ambiance, but not inexpensive.

A stunning restaurant, food was average, but ambiance made up for that.
Drinks were delicious.
They were gracious and held table because we were running late.

Loved the food and the beautiful Christmas decor. Service was a bit slow but the waiters were lovely. Unfortunately the cloak room lady didn’t take care with my bag and it came out very scuffed and stained, didn’t notice until leaving the premises.

The setting was stunning but the whole service experience felt very rushed and manic - plates were just chucked down in front of us & extra drinks order had to be asked for twice. food was good but probably not worth the money - fab setting let down by it's service.

The steak and fries were cooled. When I complain to the manager he first told me that they will reheated...! Because I didn’t like the idea they offered new one that will take 25 minutes. I ended pay and l left the restaurant.

Even though 34 had been on my list for a while, I went to the restaurant because of the photos of the decorations - and it didn't disappoint. I felt like dining inside a Xmas tree! Extremely beautiful! Service was prompt and friendly, even though it was packed (on a Monday night!). Delicious food too. We shared a creamy fresh burrata. For the main I had a cod and tender octopus, amazing! Side dishes are quite small. I loved the ambiance, soft music and interior. Would definitely recommend!

Looks running with it’s Christmas decor. Slow to be served and then rushed at the end so didn’t have time for a dessert (didn’t have a starter either!) before our 2hrs were up! Shame.

We went for Sunday brunch with friends and to see the spectacular Christmas decorations. I had the forestiere Benedict which was delicious but a very small portion. It was served with a very small egg on a small muffin. For £14 I felt this was expensive. I ended up ordering the cheese plate as I was still hungry. My friends had the shakshuka and foie gras on toasted waffle which was again small portions. Just bear this in mind when booking. It’s a lovely ambiance and I loved the open kitchen. The staff were friendly and attentive. The Rossini cocktails were fab.

Stunning place. Food was ok. Nothing amazing expecially for the price país but still ok.
What I really fee was a let down was 2 things: tables literally so close to eachother you will not be able to have any private conversation with whoever you are dining with. Tables are awkwardly so close to eachother that you feel like you are dining with this strangers.
Also the service is so rushed. They want to Turn around those table as soon as possible. So if you like me booked this place for the ‘experience’ is kind of a buzz killer. I was still eating and a waitress took away my plate and the bread basket. I had my food in my mouth. I was still chewing and still had food in my plate and bread in the basket.
I was mortified so I didn’t say anything, but from a place like this I honestly wasn’t expecting this kind of service. I really wanted to enjoy the whole ‘experience’.
No one was rude, but the service was rushed indeed.

Arrived on Saturday afternoon with a booking at 15.30. We arrived 5 minutes early and were told our table was not quite ready. We stood at the bar but there was not enough room as there were a few others waiting. This meant we were in the way of the staff and other guests. 25 mins later we were finally seated but our drink order was taken for another 15 mins. We had been there over an hour now and were only just receiving our cocktails. Our food order was taken by another member of staff, my partner ordered a steak and was told it would take 25 mins maybe he should order something else. I am guessing this is because they wanted the table back by a certain time.
After we finished our main courses, the second the plates were cleared, 2 desert menus were placed in front of us. Then about 5 seconds later another member of staff asked if we were ready - we hadn’t even looked at the menu. By this time it was 5pm, so now over the allocated times for our table.

Overall I would say it wasn’t worth the money. The Christmas decorations were spectacular but the service and poor management let this place down. The food was average, I was expecting better.

Would not visit again
