Probably one of the best dining experiences I have had in my life. Service was on point and it didn't feel either too intrusive nor did I feel I was left hanging.

We went for the 5 course bespoke menu with bubbles and I could easily say that it boasts the best value for the quality you get in the whole of London. Every dish felt like it was in the right place. My personal favourite was the tomato dish with foam (I couldn't remember the exact name). It seems like that every component of each dish was made to complement each other, like a unified team and not a star by itself. Finally, we were surprised to be welcomed into the kitchen for a little tour and a chat with the chef, which completed the entire experience with a "behind-the-scenes" peek.

Would certainly look forward to coming again. Amazing.

From the minute we entered the restaurant we were treated first class by all the staff. They were friendly professional and really helpful. The food was fanastic full of flavour, we had the seasonal 5 course tasting menu with wine matching. We didn't know what was coming so each dish was a surprise. The carmel tart was to die for.

The highlight was the tour of the kitchen at the end. Tom don't change a thing your staff and you are doing a fanastic job of welcoming your dinners and being down to earth and unpretentious. We visit a michelle star restaurant once a year as a treat and this is the only one we have said we would go back to and this was due to the welcome we received.

Fabulous lunch in a relaxed elegant location. Each course of the lunch was superb, from the yummy cheese puffs to the little doughnuts. If I was to pick out a favourite course it would be the chicken but each plate was amazing.

We have been to here several times before and have never been disappointed. I have no doubt that we will be back.

A quiet, luxurious, elegant restaurant with a calm and relaxing atmosphere, conveniently situated on the ground floor of The Westbury hotel only a few yards from New Bond Street.

The food is beautifully prepared and presented, reflecting the Michelin status of Chef Alyn Williams. Do not expect large portions but a perfectly balanced range of flavours and textures.
The wines recommended to accompany the set menu or tasting menu are well chosen and of excellent quality but cost from £12 for a small glass.

Service at all times is really outstanding: discrete, attentive and professional but friendly and entirely unpretentious.

This is a high quality establishment with uncompromising standards.

A wonderful birthday lunch for my wife. Attentive unobtrusive service from the Maitre D Alex throughout, lovely food and wine and that little “extra” - a tour of the kitchen by the head chef, who was really inquisitive for our feedback on his new (weekly) menu. The whole team went out of their way to make us feel special and vindicated my choice of restaurant for the special day. Thank you.

we attended this restaurant for an anniversary treat and were not disappointed, the food was excellent even though we were on the bespoke menu and did not know what we would be eating. There was no rush to serve or for us to vacate the table. The staff made every effort to ask about our food preferences and ensure that my Wife's needs being pregnant were catered for.
a great experience and one to remember

I am a bit surprised we haven't got a chance to see the bespoke menu which means we don't know the food until they are served on the table, and reading the menu is always a pleasure for a new adventurer. And the two deserts are a bit too similar, one is strawberry panna cotta, the other is cream with raspberry, if the chef considers the menu is designed for spring, but maybe the temperature of London should be also under his consideration, today is only 8 degree, it would be lovely to finish with some hot dessert. But I do appreciate the comfortable cushion as I have backache today.

Gorgeous food - could not fault it. Just yummy and perfectly balanced.

I think the staff found us annoying (which was a shame as we are a group of 4 lawyer ladies who are all pretty reasonable!) - we had a v weird service moment when a female server rolled her eyes at us because we were mid flow speaking and weren’t quite ready to be interrupted with detail on the next amuse. We had some drinks mix ups, and were made to feel we had outstayed our welcome at the end (maybe it’s our fault and 11.15 on a thursday night is too late to stay chatting and drinking tea and cocktails).

The resto was not very full - this shouldn’t put you off going as the food is fab. Some staff members just need to get a bit more professional to match the food.

Simply outstanding experience. We had the tasting menu. Food superb. Brilliant creative menu skilfully executed. Every mouthful delicious and novel.
Staff were charming, real people who were well informed and enthusiastic about the food. Wine pairing was imaginative and excellent
Possibly the best meal I’ve eaten in London. Can’t recommend highly enough.
Oh and it was also good value at £60 per head for six courses.

A fantastic dining experience at Alyn Williams restaurant at the Westbury Hotel.
Every course was beautifully presented and had great combinations of flavours. Particularly tasty were the king crab, steak and quail dishes. The little appetisers and petit fours also added to the fabulous evening. We got a bit carried away and had an extra cheese course, and in addition to the complimentary glass of prosecco, we chose a bottle of lovely Austrian white (£60) and great Madeira and desert wines with our afters.
We definately rate the food in this place in the same league as any 2 or 3 michelin star fine dining restaurant in London.

This was the 2nd time my husband and I had been here and we took my mum and Aunt for a treat. This was the first time they had eaten in a fine dining restaurant and they were thrilled by every part of the lunch. My mum rang me the next day to say that it will be a memory she will keep forever.

Celebrated a friend's birthday at this restaurant as it consistantly came up as a top choice in copious searches for fine dining tasting menus in London.
Included a request for gluten free option for my guest which was catered for with fabulous dishes and an element of surprise in each plate . Beautifullly presented, delicously tasty with wine recommendations to complement. Icing on the cake was a personalised birthday dessert plate which my companion delighted in.
Our leisurely lunch spanned 4 hours and it was a pleasure to experience this restaurant in a lovely setting with a great ambience and professional staff.
Will recommend and return.

We had the bespoke 5 course menu. It was classic and beautiful. All the members of staff were brilliant. The manager made time to talk to us without making time. It felt like you was having food with friends. The whole experience felt effortless. We was very lucky because I’m not sure it’s not the norm. We got to go in the kitchen and spent some time with Alyn Williams. After that you understand the restaurant, the staff and food. Great, fun , friendly and brilliant. Deserves more than one star.

Fantastic, as usual! 5th time here, and again everything was perfect, the food delicious and the staff warm friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Our waitress Isabel was delightful as were the other members of staff. Went on the de jour tasting menu deal which has to be one of the best value meals you can get in London for the quality and extra's you get. As always, highly recommended, just visit and you wont be disappointed
