Alyn Williams is a favourite of ours which we have not been to for some time. Returning was no disappointment. This oasis in the swirl of Mayfair is as good as ever. Service is smart, friendly and efficient, the food is delicious and extremely well prepared. The five course tasting lunch menu is great value for what it offers. We'll be there again soon.

The food is awesome and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a small problem in that we were near the door to the adjoining 'private dining' room and for me the noise was making discussions difficult. I asked to be moved and was with no fuss transferred to a less noisy part of the restaurant. Large groups tend to be very noisy by their very nature, so this is not a fault of the hotel, For some people this would not be a problem, it's just that my hearing is a bit sensitive.
Each course that was provided was full of different things (albeit small) that were colourful, tasty and different textures. Each looked like a piece of art work, although I resisted the temptation to photograph each course. We will be back.

The most amazing tasting dinner with great wines to go with it. Fantastic service and a great tour of the kitchen to met the maestro himself. Alyn Williams is a charming chef who cooks amazing food and is actually in the kitchen of the restaurant that bears his name.

Great food, fresh and seasonal. Staff was OK but not outstanding, possibly because we had late Saturday lunch and they would rather relax instead of working.
Overall experience is excellent. Highly recommended

We went for their 5 course (surprise me!) meal. Delicious food esp the exquisite halibut and the mackerel dishes, and great wine choice from the sommelier. Really loved the bread and all the little add on small bites and refresher dishes in between the courses. Super friendly and attentive service from our waiter, Florian. Lovely setting. Would highly recommend. We had a thoroughly lovely experience.

A Friday afternoon off with my other half...Really friendly and knowledgable service, great tasting wines, exceptional fish course and a decent cheese trolley. Oh, and one of the best puddings I have had in ages (raspberry/cheesecake mousse thing).
We had a really enjoyable and laid back Friday afternoon, many thanks all!

This place must really be tried to be appreciated.
Absolutely everything to do with the food and the service really is top notch.
Not quite certain how it could be improved apart from reducing the prices, although these are not expensive for the experience that you get and quality of the food.

Excellent for a celebration or special treat meal. Starters were the standout - beautifully presented and really interesting. Great dinner and good service. (The hotel bar where we had drinks beforehand was very slow (perhaps due to new staff?))

Marvellous Saturday looks much menu. Food was a high standard. Staff are very attentive, although when you’re looking for a long lingering girlie catch-up over lunch, they’re maybe a bit too attentive- it’s all about balance. I don’t want to feel rushed and want to savour every course.

I can not express how wonderful the staff were during lunch and our time here. They were friendly, welcoming and made the whole experience a truly memorable one. .........And the food! We enjoyed the 5 course taster lunch, which was sublime - well thought out, beautifully presented (and introduced by the staff) and utterly delicious. A wonderful experience, thank you to all involved.

We went there yesterday to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The restaurant was very thoughtful by placing us in a quiet corner as we have a small baby and highchair was already there when we arrived. We had the 5 course menu and it was all beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Waiting time between courses was just perfect and staff was very attentive. My husband’s dietary requirement was well catered for as well and service was excellent. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience and would highly recommend the restaurant.

We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our visit to Alyn Williams, although we did ask after a couple of courses if things could be slowed down. This was implemented with no fuss

We loved meeting Alyn & the Head Chef. And the sommelier Manuela & Konstantinos were incredibly informative & took time to answer additional questions we had.

My only negative comment, is partially directed at myself as well. I was stunned to learn my glass of champagne cost £28. I should have checked because I felt I was still enjoying when the first course wine arrived

I arrived last Friday evening and was immediately told that there were only two choices available: the vegetarian tasting menu, and the non-vegetarian tasting menu. Nobody had informed me of this when I made my telephone booking and consequently I felt unable - and neither did I wish - to eat all the food on each of these menus. Consequently, I had two courses from the tasting menu, both very well cooked indeed, but it was not what I would have chosen. For this I was charged £70. My guest and I felt that this was "taking liberties". Soup and a small piece of meat. Seventy pounds? Come on!
I have dined at this restaurant in the past, on many occasions, and was delighted to order from an a la carte menu. Had only someone told me that the a la carte menu didn't exist on a Friday evening I should have gone somewhere else.
Clearly an oversight by whoever took my booking led to a dissatisfied and overpriced evening.
Do you really care?
LM.

This was the second time to enjoy Alyn Williams food creations, he surpassed his previous and created a unique menu of delights. Was to expensive? a little, but worth every penny from the delight of the food, the attention of the staff, the ambience of the restaurant to the happiness of my family enjoying their best meal/experience they have ever had.

We tried a 5 course tasting menu. They lost a star on food, coz the main dishes were a bit on the salty side. Maybe it’s a personal preference. But overall the food was great. Pariticularly impressed by the pre-dessert and the dessert. Bravo to the chef and his crew. Waiters were also very friendly and excellent in all aspects. Will definitely recommend to friends

Absolutely outstanding. We went for 5 course set menu experience which was amazing value for money, spectacular dishes, wonderful presentation, and marvelous prosecco. We are definitely coming back. SOme dishes (like green juice/soup with green beans in the middle of it) were simply work of art. There were 3 of us with all the same feedback.
