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”.

When the restaurant staff offer you a newspaper to read while your co-diner is 20 mins late, you know you're in a restaurant that cares about its customers.

The steak frites was good, the 34 Doughnuts is one of the best desserts I've had. The cappuccino excellent.

I'd go back again and again.

An excellent venue providing you have deep pockets! An eclectic menu for sophisticated tastes. Service is very good but spoiled by creating the impression they want you out as quickly as possible. My colleague and I spent 1 and a half hours over a 2 course lunch with a bottle of wine and were irritated when, having been asked if we wanted a desert which we declined, we were immediately presented with the bill which we had not requested.
This impersonal approach spoiled what was otherwise an excellent meal comprising the finest quality produce, tasty and well presented.

Great food, decent wait staff, great place overall. Few hiccups with service and some of the dishes were just ok. Try the wagyu croquettes and the rhubarb custard sundae.

A well cooked brunch with interesting and innovative choices on the menu. Friendly and efficient service with attention to detail. We were particularly impressed with the plates of ice cream and truffles/chocolates given to two of our party who had birthdays on the day we were there.

Very nice space with good food and would definitely go back. The set menu was great and excellent value. They were kind enough to be flexible with certain things which made the experience even better. The decor is also quite nice and the restaurant is fairly quiet is was good.

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
