I have to say overall I was disappointed with my experience at Alyn Williams at The Westbury.

We went as party of four on Saturday evening to celebrate a birthday. On Saturdays only the tasting menu is available. We were a party of four with one vegetarian. We also selected the matching wines.
When offered an aperitif we order a bottle of wine. We also ordered the lobster/truffle risotto supplementary course.

Everything we ate was lovely - favourite course was lobster. That said desserts were nothing special.

All the wine was well selected.

So why disappointed - the length of the meal. There were at least 2 courses where the wait felt way too long. Our table was booked for 7.30pm and one of my guests left without coffee and petit fours to catch their last train home at 11.48 from Waterloo. I put the speed of meal down to the 2 large parties in the private dining areas backing up the kitchen. That may not be the case but it was absolutely how it felt.

I am a regular diner in fine dining restaurants with tasting menus and matched wines and this was my worst experience for a while. It was also one of the most expensive. I would not recommend nor return there are much better options available in London.

We eat here 2-3 times a year either for special occasions or just a little treat. Once again this excellent restaurant delivered everything you would expect from a top London eatery.

We had the set Saturday lunch and had a choice of 4 items per course. I had sweetbreads followed by rabbit and my husband had lobster and venison all of which was superb. But the star of the show was the apple tart - wow!

As always we enjoyed the little extras along the way.

What a wonderful way to spend a few hours on a wintery afternoon just off Bond Street. We will be back.

I had the wine pairing and my husband had premium wine pairing. All the selected wines were wonderful and tastes good individually. The food is amazing! We absolutely love it. We paid a supplement £15 for the lobster tail and it's worth it. It's our favourite dish. We also love the venison. Overall it was a lovely experience. I highly recommend this place

Most of the lunch was good, even very good, and the service was very good, except for the sommelier who had nothing to say when asked. Unfortunately my main course, Hake, was cool, maybe tepid at a stretch, and I really don't like cold food. For a michelin starred restaurant and a £120 a head lunch this was unacceptable.

I though the service was very good as well as the food. I think the added extra’s are not necessary when you consider taster menu in other restaurants, who do not have this but the food is of higher quality. Also the bill was incorrect which had to be raised. Apart from that a very enjoyable evening.

Ha d a wonderful lunch, staff were charming and very knowledgeable about the food and wines.
My only adverse comment would be that the dress code although relaxed and smart casual is acceptable, sloppy jumpers nand d washed out jeans with old trainers I found distasteful. Even if they were obviously foreign guests and on holiday or a shopping trip.

Third visit to Alyn Williams and we've booked again for December which says it all really. Various menus to suit a wide range of spend so it neednt be too expensive however the tasting menu with pairing wines is so so good. The team are friendly, unobtrusive and informative. The setting is extremely relaxing. A great time as always!

Having booked rather last minute for a friends 30th Birthday I was guided purely by the reviews i had seen on here. I am delighted to report that they couldn't have been more accurate! It really was a fantastic experience from start to finish. The staff just can't do enough for you and are so friendly, and as for the food.... truly wonderful. We had opted for the 5 course bespoke menu and we really struggled to pick a favourite course due to the excellence of them all, and they were all so wonderfully different. As mentioned it was my friends 30th so they even brought out an extra dessert with 'Happy Birthday' which was a lovely touch. We even had a visit into the kitchen where the chefs greeted us so warmly with the head chef taking time out to really welcome our opinion of the menu and give us a bit of back story to the establishment.
All in all, and unforgettable experience and i will certainly be returning.

Booked the restaurant at late notice and was not disappointed - 5 course bespoke menu with Prosecco. No menu just asked if any allergies or dislikes and then explained each dish as served. Staff were attentive and engaging and the food and little extras were all well prepared, presented and tasty. Excellent value taking in the whole meal. Even a little extra desert as it was our anniversary.

I had an exceptionally nice dinner at Alyn Williams with my friend celebrating her birthday. We picked the five course bespoke menu and each course was elegantly presented and mouthwatering. The use of color and fresh herb really made each of the dishes pop, and elevated the taste level. The service was also excellent. Meeting the head chef and getting a peak of the kitchen at the end of our meal really just the cherry on top. I will return to this restaurant again with my family.

Outstanding.
Had lunch at Alyn Williams on Saturday and really could not fault it. Went for the 5 course bespoke tasting menu which was not only exquisite, but also excellent value at £65 per person with a glass of prosecco. Service was excellent with waiters being very attentive but not overly intrusive.
To summarize, top class food, competitively priced, in a lovely setting with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
Don't think you need much else!

Quite simply an excellent restaurant with innovative menu and dishes. Lots of cooking that shows great skill and flair of kitchen staff. The service was fantastic, very attentive perfectly timed, ie when leaving to visit the bathroom and between courses. Excellent sommelier who provided wonderful matched wines. Very reasonably priced wine list, ie between 30-40 pound for very decent wine. Fantastic crockery for each dish. Overall excellent value for money and a lovely experience. Would recommend for advance level foodies but also for those curious to try cutting edge British fine dining cuisine
