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.

Private Dining

Located on the 28th floor of the London Hilton on Park Lane and enjoying views across London, Galvin at Windows is the ultimate destination restaurant. The Balcony, which is located by the bay windows, makes the most of its position, offering a view across Park Lane, Hyde Park and West London.

Definitely for the experience and view alone. The food was great. I wasn't particularly bowled over by my choices. Had serious food envy when my girlfriends dishes arrived. The service was exceptional, and entertaining at times. They also made a little birthday treat for my girlfriend which I thought was beautifully kind.

We went to this amazing restaurant as a special treat, we were celebrating our recent wedding with some friends. We were seated at a beautiful table at the window and were excited about the opportunity to write a postcard to family/friends - Wow! Then the food and wine started coming with the very attentive service. The meal was amazing.
All the food is truly wonderful.
After two hours we were asked to leave our table.
The restaurant was not even half full at this point - around 9 pm on a Saturday night.
We were offered a table at the bar - which was very noisy or alternatively something they called the lounge. So we said, we'll go to the lounge - thinking we'd have a coffee and liqueur ... but ... nobody came. Staff came to the table next to us, but ignored us. Staff were near us , since we were placed behind the galley, but none of them came anywhere near us.
In fact, getting to pay the bill was a bit of task, since we had to wave someone down.
This really put a dampener on what had been a wonderful experience, a beautiful meal in the most amazing setting BUT now we felt ignored, unwanted and frankly insulted.
Particularly since we walked out past the room we had dined in and it was not even one quarter full and our former table and the adjoining table were both empty.
Why did you move us?
So... I'm never coming back and I'm not telling anyone about your restaurant. In fact on the way home I was thinking about writing a letter of complaint to the head of the restaurant and to the chef.
The food that comes from this kitchen deserves better than the experience we had!

Booked for son’s birthday and on confirmation was told no balloons however it was ok to bring a cake. On arrival we were told no cake. Bit awkward as we’d brought it and candles for his 21st. The restaurant manager said it was policy and did eventually sort out that we could receive the cake at tables behind the bar. All very unnecessary and we couldn’t cut/eat the cake in case someone became ill. Seriously Hilton/Galvin. I get that you’re a high class establishment however don’t ruin a special occasion by being so up yourself! People go to top restaurants to celebrate and although the food and wine were excellent (sommelier was one of the nicest people I’ve encountered and very helpful) it takes away from a great evening when we have to be secreted behind bead curtains to sing happy birthday in hushed tones

We ate here for a very special occasion, we chose here because we ha previously been here on another occasions and it completely blew our taste buds and was a magnificent experience. Though upon returning the food was very disappointing. having paid a little over £400 we expected a lot more, we wouldn't return. such a shame as our first memory here was wonderful and an experience we will never forget, we wish we had had the same the 2nd time round.

We loved out lunch. It was our first time eating there and we would normally frequent Scotts of Mayfair. Food was outstanding as was the service.

Only slight disappointing thing was we ordered a 'lovey dovey' cocktail in the hopes of meeting Fred as it was my birthday but it never transpired. He did however visit two other tables during our lunch.

Would recommend but not what we expected from a Michelin star restaurant. Seemed a bit too busy and noisy and although all staff were nice, knowledge of the menu was limited and they were not as attentive as many other restaurants which seemed to be due to the number of guests there. Service felt rushed and not appropriate to be asked to order desert at the start of the meal (anywhere let alone a top restaurant) just because they were busy.

Exquisite food. Amazing views. Attentive service. Only problem was the Hilton bar downstairs told my mum she could take her full glass of wine up to the restaurant (if she drank it downstairs we would be late for our table) however Galvins did not allow this. Wine is not cheap these days so this was irritating particularly as on a previous visit Galvins did allow this (my mum is a painfully slow drinker!). You only have 90 minutes at the table on the pre-theatre package which does feel rather rushed

This was a birthday lunch treat and it definitely lived up to expectations. Wonderful cocktails, palatable wines and really outstanding food.
We enjoyed the set menu, my partner opting for a Jerusalem artichoke veloute and roasted pepper main while I chose a trout starter and followed it with sea bream, which was cooked to perfection - its flesh flaky, and delightfully crispy skin.
My partner assures me the cheesecake he had for dessert was the best he ever tasted, but I had no regrets about my choice of a tonka bean parfait.
Service was attentive but unobtrusive, if you're looking to celebrate the venue will certainly help to mark the occasion.

What stood out was the attentive and helpful level of service. We were never overwhelmed but it was clear the staff know how to look after diners. We ate 3 courses, had olives to start and added a glass of wine along with the set menu Belini. Another great restaurant ticked off my 'must visit' list.

It was quite loud and there were no music.
We were not able to see the view as we were seated in the middle of the restaurant where it is impossible to see the view.
