Located high up on the 28th floor of the London Hilton at 22 Park Lane, Galvin at Windows restaurant and bar has become one of the capital’s most talked-about destination dining venues since its opening in 2006. Head Chef Joo Won and Chef Patron Chris Galvin have created seasonally inspired menus based around modern French haute cuisine that have now earned the restaurant its first, much-deserved Michelin Star. Renowned for its peerless views over the capital, including iconic sites like Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace, Galvin at Windows is a restaurant where honest food and genuine hospitality are already a tradition after just a few short years. Because of the elegance of the room and the jaw-dropping 360-degree views, Galvin at Windows is certainly a destination restaurant with fine service and all the trimmings. But, clever Galvin staff, the set lunch menu and bar express menu bring this sublime French cuisine within reach.

The food and wines were good but I am disappointed about the service.
We have decided to go for the tasting menu only after one of the waiters confirmed us there wouldn’t have been pieces of onion in our dishes.
Unfortunately some of them came with pieces of onion, they only said “sorry” when I mentioned the issue.
A bit disappointing, I’ve been to Michelin starred restaurants before and they have always been able to make sure I would eat their dishes, even for the tasting menu.

We had the pleasure of having dinner at Galvin at Windows twice during our vacation in London. Both times the service was great, the food wonderful and the atmosphere was amazing. The view of the London skyline is stunning. The food is creative and tasty. The highlight of both visits was Manuel. He spoiled us and made our dining experience better than we thought possible. It’s a true gem!

We really enjoyed our evening - a rare date night. The food was truly lovely. My husband even had an identical gluten free pear soufflé to mine which was simply flawless! The staff knew of my note at the time of booking, so had anticipated that one of our party was gluten free, which is unusual in our experience and pleasantly reassuring. Would highly recommend in every way.

Galvin At Windows is an outstanding restaurant, a combination of the fantastic views of London, tremendous global staff, and most of all, the creative and delicious offerings from their South Korean chef.
We had the tasting menu, which was superb and surprising, as Joo Won crafted a meal that was an hommage to his roots. Dishes included raw kingfish with kohrabi and chli; lightly fried lobster tail with somyn noodles and soy broth; baked hake with pork and cabbage; duck breast with kimchi; green tea icecraem and chocolate mousse. Every course featured lovely flavors. If you want an unforgettable experience, go to Galvin At Windows.

We traveled to London from NY for 25th Wedding Anniversary trip and booked this restaurant for our special dinner. I booked ahead of time and mentioned that it was our Anniversary and we would love to have a window seat if possible. When we arrived we were given the window seat which was lovely & the place had a relaxed but elegant feel. The drinks and wine were pricy but excellent . It was absolutely perfect, the staff were extremely nice and informative, the food was fantastic & we were given a lovely complementry desert plate with "Happy 25th Wedding Anniversary" inscribed on it after dinner. Overall I would say it was very good and would absolutely recommend it for a special occasion. We will go back when in London again.

A beautiful day for a lovely long lunch. Great views, great food great service. The building itself is a bit tired but not much can be done about that, however the amazing views make up for it and the tasting menu, whilst not cheap, was superb and thoroughly enjoyable along with some lovely wine supplied with some excellent advice from the very knowledgeable sommelier. A "go to" venue on a sunny, clear day as nothing lets it down - whether you're spoiling yourself with the full treatment or a just a quick couple of courses from the specials.

The service and staff were good, the food was average at best.

We requested a table with a view as it was our daughters 21st birthday, we were given a table in the corner.
Two sides surrounded by a curtain.

When we asked to move it was explained that guests at a better positioned table were in the bar and had not paid there bill so may come back, which is fair however we had just left the bar and no groups were there.

It transpired that they were going to be very busy that evening and wanted to get ready for this.

The service was outstanding and really made the meal. We had 2 children with us and they were so friendly towards them and gave them a play pack. I’d go back here for another meal just because of how well we were treated, thankfully the food was amazing and worth going back for too.

I went there to celebrate my husband's birthday. We tried degustation menu with wine pairing. I also requested to get a tour of kitchen and my request was agreed upfront. I asked for the tour before dinner and was told that it will be done at the end of dinner. In the menu Amuse bouchée had very strong flavour instead of just cleaning the palette for starting the menu. The food was not bad but salad was quite bland. We also got paper in one of our dish. They apologized for this and offered us complimentary cheese which was a nice gesture. At the end no one asked us for the kitchen tour so i was a bit disappointed.

Wonderful food and faultless service. However, although 30th birthday and request for a view, may as well have been on the ground floor for what we could see. Only one set menu or tasting menu choice in the evening. Prices are eye watering though. £310 for 2. Still, for a very special occasion, the food and the service will not disappoint.

Was very impressed with the ambience, service, food and general warm welcoming from all members of staff. Each team member was very attentive and couldn't do enough for us. We were celebrating our anniversary and were lucky enough to be taken in to the kitchen to meet Head Chef Joo Won and the Maitre D took us through to a remote staff area with a balcony that looked over the City. Beautiful scenes to say the least. As for the food..... the Beef Wellington was incredible and the Pear Souffle was the best dessert I've ever had :)
Left feeling full and very satisfied.
