The reaction of the staff when you ask for something is immediately a fed-up and sullen look and a snapped response of something negative. If you push kindly they eventually work it out with not too much effort but it's a really ungracious attitude you're met with in general. However the lamb is delicious, the vibe is nice and the location convenient.

Really great time! Went for afternoon tea date on a whim, booked a table and loved it! No need for a suit/fancy dress- a nice pair of dark jeans and blazer/sweater for men and slacks and a blouse for women work perfectly. We appreciated the food and tea immensely. However, service was a bit slow, so plan accordingly. Overall, really good experience:)

It was rubbish service, and it wasn't even busy. The food was ok, but they forgot our sides and when they remembered they left them and brought them after we had finished our mains.

The food wasn't as good as last time I was there. Very middling variety.. although the smoked haddock soufflé was great.

Great place for lovely, fair-priced Afternoon Tea that is consistently good. The atmosphere is perfect for enjoying the treats and quiet conversation.

Booked a table for high tea but they had ran out of finger sandwiches. Presentation was poor. Food was good. Service was terrible. We waited 40 mins for our cocktails. Not worth it.

Honestly speaking, I was quite disappointed. Their scones used to be my must-eat and each time I visited London, I needed to go there. But the scones this time were not tasty anymore, I don't know if they changed the recipe...

We are foreign tourists and followed a guide book recommendation for the Dean Street Townhouse.
The restaurant was very busy with many guests enjoying the evening.
We were warmly welcomed, and were delighted with the menu and traditional fine-dining ambience.
Our meal was nicely presented and in traditional British style, as advertised.
We are not wine experts but we found a very suitable wine from the menu.
After our entrees we tried the porterhouse steak bearnaise for two, which was a very generous serving of perfectly cooked beef. No room left for dessert.
Service was very professional and friendly.
I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for traditional food in a stylish setting.
You can look up the menu and prices beforehand, so you know what to expect.

I love Dean Street Townhouse and everything about the hotel and restaurant. Had brunch there on Sunday and was slightly off the normal mark - food cold (but delicious), angry waitress, forgotten toast, no butter. Such a shame as I know it has potential for five stars across the board, based on previous experiences.

I travel from Australia to London a couple of times per year and never miss a chance to drop in for a drink and something to eat whether on my own or travelling with others. Keep doing what you are doing, it’s fantastic !

The food was great, albeit not up to the level of Galton Blackiston of Morston Hall, or Roger Hickman in Norwich,but then few places are. Great waiter, good atmosphere, and for a high level London restaurant the prices were not ridiculous. We would definitely go back again.

Dean Street Townhouse never fails to deliver ! Friendly non-intrusive service staff, knowledgeable of the menu and recommendations - professional and give the impression, they want to be there ! Great food, old-world ambiance / atmosphere and plush décor. Always been on my top London restaurants for an impressive evening. Thank you Dean Street !

Food was good but service was a bit slow mainly as we were separated from the main dining room and there were fewer servers available. Drinks service was staggered so that not all drinks arrived at once on any occasion that all of the party ordered drinks.

£22 of wine that we did not order or consume was added to the bill in error but was resolved quickly after this was pointed out.

Whilst I would categorise the overall experience as good, there was certainly room for improvement on the service aspects.

My wife and I have previously dined at Dean Street Townhouse , but 2/3 years ago. It was both an obvious and convenient place to meet for a casual lunch with a former business contact , now a good friend. The service from my arriving early and throughout the meal was excellent. Whilst both my friend and I only had a main meal and later coffee , the meal was very good. Well done the Dean Street Townhouse.

We had a wonderful lunch there on saturday 7th July 2018 for our anniversary with our son, daughter in law and grand-daughter. The staff were so nice and friendly and they gave my husband and I a lovely surprise while we were sitting outside with a candle on some truffles on an anniversary plate. It was so very nice of them. Thank You !! Rachel & Grant Argent x

It’s a lovely place and we usually go for cocktails in the evening which is perfect.
This was our first time for dining and although the food was amazing, the seating wasn’t great as they are low chairs which makes it quite uncomfortable to eat.
We will definitely be returning but will ask specifically to sit at one of the ‘proper’ dining tables!

The food was good without being especially memorable. Restaurants that charge £4-5 for side dishes of ordinary vegetables that only cost 50p always irritate me. They would have sold more gin if they served Fevertree tonic. Other brands being substandard. It was very noisy in the main restaurant area, but fortunately quieter in the smaller area. Apparently it is better for afternoon tea than an early dinner.

For me..., DST is a staple for any visit to London. I love the ambiance of the restaurant. And I go there for breakfast or brunch. That's not intended to suggest other meals are not fine - I just haven't been near it later in the day. :-) That said, every morning meal I've had here is satisfying. The food is always done to perfection and I so enjoy the avocado toast! It's not hard to enjoy most any food here with the fantastic decor. It's not trendy nor does it try to be something it is not. So, I give this a hearty two-thumbs-up and encourage you to try the breakfast.
