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.

Apart from the mildly irritating extra charges on the most popular choices in the Menu Prestige, there is simply nothing to fault . All the dishes were superb and of heady flavour, the wine we left to a 'wonder woman' head sommeliere who found a superb Malbec for us of excellent value, the service was spot-on without ever being intrusive and as soon as a better table became available (after our cocktails at table) we were whisked off without even having to ask! If the kitchen enjoy their magic work just half as much as the waiting staff, then there is the answer to the perfect evening.

Staff were very attentive and friendly, food standard met expectation, overall it was a very enjoyable lunch.
Due to road accident problem, we were delayed by an hour, I phoned ahead to staff and they happily accommodate and held the table for me.
It was a happy day and good lunch at Galvin - many thanks.

Really enjoyed experience, food was very flavourul. The only advice would say to explore better before comming, how menu works.. Internet didn't informed us about more expencier menu for the day we came, and had to choose a bit pricy options, plus missunderstood menu and got more food then we needed, whice leed to paying double the price from what we planned to spend. For us it didn't damaged experience, us we decided to take it, but for some it might, so take an extrata look. Also, all prices are without VAT, which is another donwside, as you get the extra shock at the end. Maybe it was mentioned somewhere, but I want to relax and not think about what I should be cosious during experience, so would expect stuff to inform me if I'm new there.
Everything else, pleasure.

I have been visiting Galvins since it opened. The service was amateurish, and the waiters poor, slow and uninterested. The food was worse. The starters were very tasty, but the 'brunch' a la carte menu was delivered to a standard which seemed like an afterthought. I have never, nor hope to see again, a chateaubriand as poor. To add insult, a gravy like substance was poured all over it. All main courses were second rate, including the burger! Even the wine was not decanted properly leaving glasses full of sediment. The restaurant is beautiful, as are the views. Please try and make the food equally as superlative...again.

Galvin at Windows is a lovely dining space with awesome views. The service was attentive and polite. The food was excellent. Wine can be a bit expensive but there are a couple which don’t break the bank. A great place to impress friends or colleagues. The special menu was good value. Added bonus, we got to meet Fred.

Amazing service, superb food. Brilliant with me being gluten free! Only improvements would be to open the blinds as soon as the sun went round to enjoy those amazing views and a bit more jus or gravy with the main meals, although when we asked it was there within seconds! otherwise brilliant.

Loads of good reviews on this place so I was expecting more. The food was very average.. we had the 3 course and Bellini for £33 deal, we had olives which tasted like they were pickled from a jar and a side dish to share (a tiny pot of mash) and a bottle of sparking water and the bill was just shy of £100.
The food was well cooked it just lacked a bit of oomph and flavour. Just felt a bit dated.
No amuse bouche offered either which surprised us with a meal of this kind.
The postcards were a nice touch, the views were nice, staff were friendly and attentive enough. But sadly I wouldn’t return or really recommend.

Every table has a gorgeous view, and the food was outstanding as well as the wait staff. We enjoyed a drink at the bar prior to dinner which has a great atmosphere as well. We were just enjoying a nice dinner out on the town, but there were a number of groups celebrating birthdays or anniversaries. This is a great location for a celebration. We'll definitely be back.

Was so disappointed with the restaurant. The decor was dated, the food was dated, extremely over priced boring food, the atmosphere was boring and awkward. Would not recommend to anyone. Only good thing about the restaurant was the cocktails.

Excellent meal, impeccable service. We arrived an hour early and the hostess found us a quiet corner in the bar where we sipped superb cocktails and watched the city from the 28th floor. I had called ahead and told the restaurant that my companion was vegan; when we were seated they had both the regular menu and the vegan menu ready for her. The prix fixe menu had enough options that I didn't feel constrained and the food was delicious and perfectly plated.

Insider tip: This is an AWESOME place to get engaged. Call ahead and discuss your plans with the host. They will hook you up for a memorable experience.

Eager to please service in a restaurant that can fulfil 200 covers on a Saturday night. Quality food at a price point that fits comfortably in the London top end spectrum, you get a sense of an operation front and back that truly cars that you have a positive and enjoyable dining experience. Views are spectacular across London, day and night. Recommended
