    Was rushed and manic service. Not very professional. Food very average at best. Tables not cleared when in meal finished. Seems understaffed and hence service and quality very poor

    My friend and I had a lovely time last night at Cecconi’s Mayfair. Andrei was an amazing server and really made our night special, it’s really nice to see servers with personality at a fine dining restaurant. We were given bread and crostini to start, with Extra Virgin olive oil to start, absolutely gorgeous!! The spaghetti lobster was divine, and a really generous serving of lobster ( at least a tail) for the price. I usually opt for a meat dish, but was left feeling really full and satisfied. The tiramisu is a MUST, and even though all deserts are at a higher price range , can definitely be shared. I obviously devoured mine by myself ;) I will return with my partner, definitely my favourite Italian in London, thanks Cecconi!

    We were a bit late for our reservation and the moment we arrived, the "host" was incredibly rud - before she even politely welcomed us or had a smile , she bluntly said "you're late" and said we couldn't have or table. Appreciate there is a time allocation, but as someone who eats out multiple times a week, I am used to a courtesy call if running late to check-in and to know whether to keep the table which wasn't done. This is the bare minimum effort for a restaurant. Then after saying we'd still like our table but for a shorter duration since we were late, the hostess purposely gave us the worst table by the door where we were cold despite there being another 2 covers available. We sat at this table for a bit, then the same host offered us another table. When it was ready - again instead of politely coming over and saying 'ladies your new table is now available' and taking our drinks over etc, she rushed over, said 'you can go now' and let me find the table. Then 5 minutes later came back - again, incredibly blunt - and said 'are you happy now?'. This kind or rude and aggressive behavior is really not on for a restaurant like yours. Then, we eventually settled into our meal with a waitress who was also useless. Was disappointed with the food being average and all of the mocktails on the menu being unavailable. She said just have a coke then. Then I ordered a simple soda water with bitters - as soon as I even said the word soda she interrupted me to say yeah now that's something we can do, only for it to arrive wrong even once I clarified my simple order. Since we were feeling unwelcome, we didn't want to have the full 3-course experience and as such didn't have starters or desserts. Both times, this waitress said you don't want any starters? very bluntly, as if to shame us for not wanting to get more. Same again for when we didn't want desserts, loudly announcing that we weren't oeven having a coffee or sweet. Especially as a SH member, it was extremely poor.

    This experience was a total disappointment. We had a very uncomfortable meal at a cramped table. Even though I made a reservation weeks ago for my son's birthday, we ate at a terrible table in front of the door. soup and pasta were good. Also, the waiter serving was attentive.

    Food was great and the staff are really well trained however they were definitely short. We were served by a different person at every interaction and it was 20 minutes after we sat down before we got water. Cannot fault the staff themselves, just needs more of them. Food was delicious and the table was great, would come back but would make an effort to come when its quiet.

    Not fair to give such low ratings on food etc. as we didn't get to actually eat. On arrival, early, having booked and confirmed, we were told we'd have to wait because there was no room at the bar because of a high number of 'walk ins'. I get it; restaurants need to max the number of covers, but to be told to wait by the reception desk like naughty boys was not ideal. Surely enough room should be kept for diners wanting a pre dinner aperitif? I asked how long we'd be waiting, to be told it wasn't possible to say, and we'd possibly be taken straight to our table whe it was free, and after an uncomfortable argument, we walked out and ate elsewhere. We'd have been better off just turning up and waiting rather than booking. Disappointed as it looks a nice restaurant.

    We had booked a late lunch for 14.45 but we’re still surprised how busy the restaurant was on arrival, very noisy which didn’t really subside until after 16.00 during the lull between lunch and dinner Our food and the service were good as would be expected for this use of restaurant in Mayfair

    Starters are great, main courses are mid at best. Service was not very good. Empty plates were left far too long at the table. Asked for a straw for my drink probably 3 times until I just got up and went to the bar myself. Nice ambiance

    We have been to this restaurant lots of times when visiting London. This time it seemed under staffed. The staff who were working didn’t seem to want to know or take our order. Ordered crab ravioli which smelled really fishy and not right so sent it back. Staff said they had tasted it and that there was nothing wrong with it, although we have had this dish before and it was definitely different, they did take it off our bill, but we didnt eat any of it. Left shortly after and was disappointed in whole experience.

    I've been meaning to eat at Cecconi's for a few decades now (!) and finally got round to it. I wish I hadn't waited so long. If you appreciate good Italian cuisine and and a lively atmosphere then you won't be disappointed. Following a slightly too long wait for initial service, it was then delivered with thorough knowledge of the menu and attentiveness without being overbearing or intrusive. I'll be going back.

    The service is outstanding - to a point that I would go back purely based on the front of house staff. One starter was excellent, the steak tartar was terribly under seasoned and bland. The mains were both disappointing - the spaghetti with lobster had spaghetti stuck together and under cooked (not al dente), whilst the lobster was over cooked and chewy. The crab ravioli was so salty it was inedible even for me and I'm a heavy salt user.

    I love it here, my favourite place. I'm a bit sad as I love the minestrone and I am sure the recipe has changed. The vegetables used to have a nice crunch to them with peas. Now it is full of chick peas so I was a but disappointed. The Ragu pasta although really tasty the pasta was a little on the hard side. Maybe an off day, I will still be back.
