34 Mayfair

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”.

Our first visit to “34 terrace “. We saw it in construction during our walks in the area .
Nice addition to the restaurant where we had dined many times . Had been also to the private room on first floor .
Friendly staff , good service .
Was expecting a bit more choice on brunch menu available at weekend
Had the lobster roll which was very good. Delicious basket of breads. Hamburger could have been better .
Would recommend and go back

My first visit but definitely not my last, from the moment we entered the restaurant until we departed the service and food was exceptional, unfortunately my eyes were bigger than my belly and I did not get a chance to try the desserts

I had a fantastic time! The staffs were incredible. The meal was top notch! Best chateaubriand I’ve had. Definitely enough for two and the 34 donuts were heavenly!

My husband was very pleased with his birthday meal and the kind treatment from staff. Especially the maitre d’ and the waitress who greeted at the door and spoke to us on the phone (i regret that I cannot remember their names)

Food still fantastic, but overall experience not up to par. 34 has a different vibe now. It used to be elegant, quiet/piano music, good spot for conversation and guaranteed higher-class clientele and service. Music has been replaced by a way-too-loud house/club style, and with it a new mostly all jeans and sneakers crowd. Service was sub-par (food came out in stages, with steak sauce being 5 minutes after the meat, steak under cooked, asked for a new plate and server never returned, no one offered drink refills).

Entire menu designed around 4 specialty cocktails which was quite clever, yet they were 'out' of the one I ordered (at only 6 pm). One drink order didn't come as requested, after quite a long wait.

Safety standards felt a bit concerning. Glass partitions at every 3rd table were a good addition, and hopefully will be kept post-COVID as it really cut down on the new noise problems. But folks were packed in and tables not spaced 2m apart. Some guest chairs were touching back to back. Majority of wait staff were not wearing masks properly - mouths covered by not noises, with several removing masks altogether when order taking. Most uncomfortable I've felt in an indoor environment over the past week.

Still the best steak in town, but felt as if I was eating it in the lobby of W hotel. Hope it returns to its roots soon. I can eat at the Ivy when I want that vibe.

Great restaurant and food. We did have to ask for the bill three times. If that wasn’t the case it would have been 5 stars.

Ive been to 34 Mayfair several times before and always had an outstanding time. Yesterday was something else! First the receptionist spoke to me like I was a 10 year old who didn’t understand English. We were finally seated a short while later. The waiter dropped a fork on my husband - after we had the restaurant’s beetroot salad - so you can imagine how his shirt/pants looked like with beetroot on them. The steak arrived without the side/sauce. By the that they arrived the steak was cold. To sum up, another waiter was cleaning the table next to me, smacked the small lamp on the table - by mistake obviously - but it flew and broke right next to me! Yes, I jumped! Hoping our next visit is better.....

We were barely served, terrible customer service and all the staff looks so moody and our food was not even introduced to us, just thrown onto our table. Waiting for 30 mins to pay for the bill. Food was good but not mind blowing.

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)

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!
