I booked Cecconi’s for my daughter and I to have a nice dinner together. She is gluten and dairy free, and has had problems in the past with restaurants being unable to cope with either providing alternative options on the menu, or being prepared to adapt a recipe to cope with her food intolerances. The waitress at Cecconi’s was excellent, providing a no nonsense and helpful assistance, that made my daughter feel that she wasn’t being a “nuisance”. I had a cauliflower starter, which was tasty but there was far too much cauliflower! A smaller amount would have looked more pleasing, not the large mound that I was presented with! My daughter had the salmon dish which she said was lovely. I then ordered Dover Sole, and asked for it off the bone, which is was. Very tasty and nicely presented. My daughter had a chicken dish which she said was also nice, but had far too much rocket on top - you could barely see the chicken for the greenery! By this time, we were heading for the 10pm deadline, but our waitress presented us with some delicious petit-fours (dairy free!) and did not hurry us over the bill. So, special thanks to our lovely waitress and also the gentlemen who provided us with the free drinks at the bar while we waited for our table to be ready!

Absolutely great as always Just service was quite slow. But I guess I’m putting that down to new measures in place for COVID. Love Cecconis everytime!!

Amazing restaurant and ambience but poor value for money. Given the bill was £150 for two courses, two cocktails I expected it to be nice and the waitress to be polite.
Calamari was chewy, spaghetti lobster was bland and margarita was bitter and came without salted rim despite specifically asking for it.
Waitress rude and avoided our table all night, having to request water top up.
Would go back for drinks only...food was blah

Food was lovely but service was very slow. The only time the service was quick was when I was still eating my breakfast and the waiter attempted to take my plate from me. Other than that we were waiting a while to order, even longer for the food and then it was also quite a while to pay the bill. Other than that, the restaurant itself was nice and the hostess who seated us was lovely and friendly.

Whilst the food is good, the best part of Cecconi is the ambience! It is one of the best people-watching restaurants in London. I always have a good time there.

I had a late lunch with my friend here on Sunday. We always get a mix of “things” and share. The food and service was excellent. The Burrata always tastes like the food of Gods and the prawns in chilli sauce were to die for. Everything is so fresh and tasty.
Second visit to the restaurant. Last time we sat at the bar which is a great place to people watch and very “buzzy”. This time we had a table. I think I’d recommend the bar seating.
Staff are efficient and so friendly whilst keeping safety in mind.
A great place to eat after a browse in Fortnums or visiting the RA.

Went to Cecconi's Mayfair for brunch on a Sunday morning, all very friendly and socially distanced inside. The service was a little slow, food was nice but not as hot as it probably should have been, all in all quite an average visit if I'm honest, it's been better

Awful awful choice. I should have never gone there. It was a birthday occasion and they gave us a nice table which I really appreciated but then the food and the service was extremely poor. Disgusting tasting risotto. It tasted like I was putting spoonfuls of butter in my mouth. It was just just dumped on the plate and no presentation whatsoever. It was disgusting and that £20 down the drain. Their chairs will give you back pain immediately as you just slide down the table if you are not sitting glued to the back support. I’m never going to choose or recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The table we sat at flipped 180degrees spilling all the food and drinks over my guests drenching them and soaking a Laptop and phones. We think they have hinged tables which were not secured.
No apologies from the staff or follow up call not impressed as this could have been very dangerous if hot soup or food landed on the people dining.
