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”.

It is always a treat for me to dine here on my visits to London. The cuisine is outstanding, the staff is always at your service. And the decor is most lovely with each season.

It was our first time here and we had a wonderful lunch. The food was delicious, the service excellent and the staff were so warm and friendly. The main menu is quite expensive but that is what you expect in the middle of Mayfair, and there is a very reasonably priced set menu at lunchtime.

Honestly I’ve always gone to 34. It’s normally great but the last few times, the restaurant smelt awful. We kept switching tables because the table tops smelt eggy and just terrible. As though they may have wiped the tables with a wet cloth and no detergent or something. It’s just an awful smell and we couldn’t enjoy our meal. Big problem was the staff couldn’t smell it. I think maybe they’re used to it. Shame really!

Table not ready at 2.00

Elderly guest made to stand for ten minutes at the bar until I asked for a seat to accommodate her. They were serving food at the bar so nowhere to sit when waiting for a table.

Thoughtless.

Table eventually ready at 2.25

We subsequently weren’t served any food until 3.25. After several reminders. 90 minutes after arriving.

Totally hijacked the afternoon

No apology.
No common courtesy offering of drinks/ coffee/ desert.


Tavolo non pronto alle 2.00

Ospite anziano fece riposare dieci minuti al bar finché ho chiesto un posto per ospitarla. Stavano servendo cibo al bar, quindi nessun posto dove sedersi in attesa di un tavolo.

Senza pensieri.

tavolo alla fine èra pronta alle 2.25

Successivamente non hanno servito cibo fino alle 3.25. Dopo diversi promemoria. 90 minuti dopo l'arrivo.

Totalmente dirottato il pomeriggio

Nessuna scusa
Nessuna offerta di cortesia comune di bevande / caffè / deserto.

Extremely poor service in particular when considering the price and reputation Waited more than 1 hour for our order. No water refills, no drinks arriving without chasing. We cancelled dessert order and left on what was meant to be a birthday lunch celebration, when desserts took more than 20 minutes as well.

the service was pretty poor this time and the last 2 times i went - we had to ask so many times for water, they never came by to see if you needed anything and the sides and sauces didn’t come with the mains . The wine by the glass is really prohibitively expensive especially for 125ml. i used to love this place but don’t think i’ll go again

We loved the restaurant from the moment we walked in. The decor is chic and luxurious while the service is outstanding. We went on our last night in London and look forward to returning whenever we are back in London.

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.

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.
