Food was overall excellent, and the service was fantastic. Only annoyance was that there is no soundproofing between the room next door where a private party was being held, and so as we ate our meal we could hear lots of drunken shouting and singing from next door. Made for a bit of a weird atmosphere for us. Apparently the private party was being held by a regular customer so I understand the restaurants reluctance to deal with it but it was quite distracting for us.

This is an excellent restaurant! We had the £65.00 taster menu for London Restaurant Festival which included a glass of Prosecco and a tour of the kitchen. with the 'extras' the meal was at least 7 courses. All very exceptionally good and the wine pairing that went with menu was equally splendid, with some unusual selections, for example a white from Uruguay! Staff were courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. A very well run team.

Strongly recommended.

May I just say that we had the loveliest most delicious dinner last Friday. I know what a challenge it is to cook for a diabetic and the kitchen came out trumps!! Thank you so very much. The service was personalised, friendly and professional. It was a wonderful evening. We look forward to another wonderful experience in the not so distant future.

I had the special menu offer, which was 65 pounds for a 5 course tasting menu. For 65 pounds, it was okay, but I would have rather paid more had the normal tasting menu, which looked a lot better. Service was 20-30 minutes between each course, which was slow. Overall, the meal was worth it for 65 pounds if you are there for the experience of fine dining, but I would go for the normal menu next time.

The evening included a tour by the head chef of the kitchen. Was interesting to see how a professional kitchen goes about its business. Will definitely go again.

We had the most enjoyable lunch at Alyn Williams at The Wesbury. We had chosen the bespoke menu and altough there are certain types of food my wife will not eat the restaurant accommodated with ease. The food and service were excellent. The staff professional and friendly. At the end of our lunch we were invited into the kitchen to meet the team what a wonderful end to our lunch.

Disappointing. The food was ok. I had the tasting menu. One of the courses was excellent, but the rest were either average or poor. The "aubergine/hispi/pineapple/caraway seed mayonnaise" was lacking flavour beyond sweetness.

Had the 3 course lunch menu with the wine pairing. We were all blown away by the amazing quality, presentation and value of everything we tasted. There was no problem at all meeting any dietary restrictions (vegetarian and shellfish allergy). The pork was declared to be the best ever tasted by one friend. Don't miss the cheese trolley! Service was smiling, enthusiastic and professional. Highly recommended - we will be back!

We dined at this restaurant with friends after reading the reviews with high expectations.
Unfortunately we were quite disappointed with the food which was nicely represented but was very bland tasting and over complicated. Our friend had the vegetian tasting menu and says that vertually all the courses tasted the same. The service was very good other than we had difficulty understanding the descriptions of the courses because of the waters very heavily accented English(I think he was French).
I felt the drinks prices were quite high, we were charged £17 for a 125cl glass of English Kity Coty Chardonnay. I don't normally write restaurant reviews but this is my honest appraisal of our visit to the Alyn Williams at the Westbury.

We had a really fantastic evening dining at Alyn Williams’ restaurant at The Westbury. The welcome was warm and friendly and the staff were very attentive throughout our meal. We were very impressed with the food, all the way from the pre-starters to petit fours. My wife chose the Vegetarian tasting menu and I had the Meat tasting menu and both were delicious. The food was beautifully presented and of exceptional quality. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to have a great meal out in a lovely west-end location.

We chose to lunch here to Celebes our thirtieth wedding anniversary and were not disappointed.
The service was professional solicitous but not intrusive and the waiters knowledgeable .
We chose the menu with the sommelier choice of wines which were delicious and paired excellently with the food. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the amuse bouches and the petit fours.
As it was our anniversary a surprise chocolate dessert was served and Alyn Williams circulated and chatted to he guests.
An excellent experience and one we hope to repeat .

Fantastic tasting menu - thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
Particular highlights were the foie gras canapé, the halibut and the first pork dish, (we had two pork dishes which seemed a little odd), and the chocolate fondant tart petit four

A thoroughly first class experience. The food was excellent with a main of lamb that was perfectly cooked. A real balance of sophisticated cooking but avoiding over complications. The pastry was thin, crisp and flavoursome and used in several dishes. Service attentive but not over the top. Two bonuses - the opportunity to pop into the kitchen and meet the chef and his team and the excellent Corsican wine recommended to complement the starter.

What a fantastic restaurant! The tasting menu was wonderful and very creative. The seafood was very fresh and prepared in creative ways. There was a nice and unusual selection of wines by the glass. The service was outstanding! Everyone was friendly and very efficient. This was a memorable meal, and we definitely will return!

Our third visit but significantly below the previous amazingly high standards experienced. Food lacked the amazing previous flavours and not such inspiring presentations or menu. Will try again but have such high expectations that this visit fell some way short, even the service was less involved and dour, exactly the opposite of what experienced previously

We ate at this restaurant in August. We had chosen the tasting menu, but we didn't have a menu rather we were asked what we didn't like or couldn't eat and the the courses were served taking that into account, for example three of us had the beef tartare but one of us had a superb tomato salad. All the courses were delicious I shan't go through them but there wasn't anything that we didn't like. The sommelier deserves a special mention as he guided us to wines that we wouldn't have chosen and which matched the food well - a Corsican white and a Moroccan red. All the staff contributed to making it a very enjoyable evening, by being welcoming, well informed and personable. All in all an excellent evening.

We have been to many Michelin star restaurants and this one is as good as any we have been to. The food was excellent as was the service. Alyn Williams served the starters and what a charming man he was. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys fine dining. We will definitely be going back to this exceptional restaurant. Thanks to all the staff who made this a memorable experience.

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.
