From the moment we entered the restaurant we were met with a warm welcome. We ordered the 5 course tasting menu which was not only superb value but each course was well thought out and exceptionally tasty.

We were invited into the kitchen where we met the head chef Tom whom for someone so young is extremely talented.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Can’t wait to go back.

I would really recommend the surprise menu, the waiter discussed what I liked / didn’t like in advance and all 5 courses were amazing. My husband chose à la carte and was equally impressed. The staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgable

Visited whilst on 50th wedding anniversary trip from Australia. Food delicious with lovely presentation. Staff ever so friendly and accommodating. Recommended wine really complimented the dishes, the ingredients of which were fully explained. Extra small touches that included a complimentary anniversary dessert and copy of our menu with personal message, were really appreciated. And finally, the staff offered us a tour of the kitchen and were then prepared to pose for a photographic memory. Congratulations to Tom and all the staff. A night for us to remember.

Absolutely love everything about Alyn Williams at the Westbury, as much as the last time we were there!
Everything was outstanding, especially so the service, super attentive serving staff, made us feel special!
The young lady noticed that our daughter-in-law gave the foie gras canape a miss so brought extra of other canapes for her, thank you!
Thank you to everyone for making it a fun and relaxing family evening for us!!

What a novelty it was to find a Michelin starred chef actually in his kitchen cooking, as opposed to cultivating a celebrity profile on TV! Happily I was invited to meet the good Mr Williams and was able to tell him personally, besides affirming how flawless I'd found his team's cooking that evening. A five-course mystery menu with a glass of decent Prosecco for £65 is good value at a venue such as this. But it was more like eight courses if one counts the various amuse-bouches and complimentary intermediate bites. I opted for a different wine for each course; inevitably this doubled the bill but worth it to enjoy better matches. As I was unappraised of what was to follow, I enlisted the steerage of the excellent sommelier. He ensured any recommendations were apt to accompany the food, and were within my justifiable price range. A rather dark and oppressive decor, but nonetheless atmospheric for it. And the Westbury is undeniably a smart hotel and suitable setting for this Mayfair gem. Skip the celeb factor and come here instead for your fine dining needs!

We had the 5 course menu, every course was absolutely delicious. Probably one of the more stand out meals I’ve ever had the pleasure of.
It was a very quiet lunch dining room: I mean painfully so. One old chap was asleep at his table!
Service was also spot on...

Amuse bouche was ordinary at best
Starter was ok
Main of pork cheeks was ok. Not enough to complain about but not good enough to really enjoy
Cheese board was exceptional as was the ice cream afterwards
Staff were friendly but young and inexperienced but sommelier knew his stuff
Would I go back? Absolutely not. My guest was not drinking so we’re taking wine by the glass which was good but very expensive
Overall a disappointing and expensive lunch

Really great dining experience. Warm and personable front of house staff. Food was beautifully presented with great attention to ingredients and detail. A very good range of options available - go for one of the Tasting Menus - exquisite - and not just because of the mini doughnuts and truffles at the end! Met the Head Chef, Tom - who was charming and clearly relishing his position with great enthusiasm. We have dined at many of the 'named' restaurants and Alyn Williams we would rate amongst the very best. Will certainly come again.

This is always our favourite restaurant for special occasions. It's not just a meal, it's an experience. They tailor the menu to your preferences, the service is impeccable, the food is fantastic. My husband and I spent way more at Le Manoir and it was not as good as Alyn Williams at the Westbury. We highly recommend this restaurant - it's the perfect choice for any special occasion.

A decent value for a tasting menu at £90, plus £15 for 5 variety cheese platter. The service was very friendly and willing to accommodate dietary requirements, and when we requested to see the kitchen and speak with Alyn himself the staff were happy to guide us backstage to spend some quality time with the chef. I would be pleased to come again! Food highlights were the halibut and the rabbit (delicate and well paired with sauces selection), the vegetarian roasted cauliflower was hearty and rich.

Great service and food, but guys having two flies “patrolling” our table was very embarrassing to me, as the person who invited the guest. Plus a Michelin star restaurant should be able to do better - after all you charge hefty premium for this!!!

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.
