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”.

One of the best in London! Very consistent food, some of the best grill cuts in London.

Wines a bit overpriced though..

My husband and I visited 34 Mayfair to celebrate a new job opportunity! The food was great and wine was lovely too, only downside is how close some of the tables are. We could hear the conversations on the other dinners on tables next to us!

Loved this place, the food was AMAZING, the staff were wonderful very attenuative... the price is high, but very much worth it if you've got a special occasion. We were a table of 5 which included a 5 year old and 7 year old! The restaurant catered for them well and split a main on two plates for them. Even though this is a more up market restaurant the food portion sizes are very good! Will definitely be going back here!

The sommelier was more than happy to talk through the wines with us and answer all my husbands questions and we tried a few.

The attendant who takes your coats and bags was wonderful, when we left we forgot some bags we'd checked in and she came running after our taxi to return them to us.

Really loved this place and all the staff!!!

Most disappointed with chateau Brian The mans portion was good but what the ladies received was dried up, cold and looked as though it had sat around for a long time. Very poor. I ordered 2 bottles of wine which were £79 and noticed when the bill came up I was charged £490! Our Mac and cheese was also full price for a small portion. We had invited friends so it was awkward to bring notice to this. Our favourite restaurant so most disappointed.

The food was excellent as well as the atmosphere. The only downside was the head waiter. I believe she is having a bad, she wasn’t very friendly she treated us well. While asking for her she looked at us but never reacted as if she was a ghost. And when finally she came she were super snobby and rolled her eyes many times that we felt very uncomfortable.

Everything was perfect and amazing except the monk fish. But other than that, it’s one of the liveliest restaurants in London and we will definitely be coming back.

New Years Eve 31/12/21 . The service left a lot to be desired . The food didn’t arrive at the same time and my order was wrong. I would expect better from a restaurant that commands such high prices . I haven’t eaten here for a couple of years and standards have definitely fallen in this time .

The decor is beautiful but the decor is the antithesis. Asked for recommendations and couldn’t provide any, took our first order and didn’t check in at all. I wasn’t even able to order a second drink, we weren’t even able to order a dessert because nobody checked on our table but as soon as our bill came - the waiter hovered around to ensure we paid the service charge which is quite frankly, embarrassing for a high end restaurant. The starters were tasty but the steak was the worst I’ve had for that price range.

I have been coming to this restaurant for years. Today I was SO disappointed. Rushed as soon as we sat at the table, food was burnt. Zero atmosphere! Just made to feel like
ANOTHER COVER - let’s just take your money… certainly won’t be returning.

Overall for the amount of money we paid the food was overrated and the cocktails as well.
The service was very good but the restaurant is overpriced and it really sells its image more than the actual food as it is supposed to be restaurant.
I am happy to pay more for good food but I do not think I will be coming back here again!

Overall disappointment!! Use to be a firm favourite but the food served was average - chateaubriand was cold - the Choux dessert - pastry rubbery - service below par - chefs in the kitchen were just churning out plates of food without passion and it certainly reflected in the taste !

Such an incredible letdown. Food was either bland or oversalted - definitely not worth the price! Service was awful! We had to ask them 3 times to refill our wine glasses, none of the staff wore masks, the coat check handed us hangers to hang our own coats, the team was harried and stressed. Will definitely never go back!
