We loved it, food was some of the best I have tasted in a long while, a great combination of tastes. Why they lost their michelin star in 2020 I'd beyond me as the food was fabulous
We eat out quite regularly at many michelin starred restaurants and this was by far the tastiest

My partner and I went to Galvin at Windows to celebrate a special occasion. There was much to be positive about - the food was excellent, the service was friendly and the location is, by its nature, spectacular. Sadly, the windows were not clean, our table was adjacent to a busy service station and the Manager was wearing his mask under his chin! So, a good experience which could, with more attention to detail, have been even better.

After years of not attending I finally made my way back to this restaurant for a birthday celebration. And I had missed it so much. It was comforting to see that aside from staff everything remained the same. The service, the food, the ambiance were all perfect. Spending my birthday dinner there made it that little bit more special. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough.

Unsure why their Michelin star is rescinded?
My experience was akin to a one star restaurant - all boxes ticked.
I know the view over London could get in the way of such objectivity but I can only say it’s worth finding out for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
The sommelier was superb.

Of course the view is the best in London but what really strikes you is how Truly spectacular the service - how well trained the staff are, how measured and confidence imbibing it all is from everyone greeting you, to simple courtesies that are so important during the current times like good humour and eye contact. Bravo.

It was a booking originally for 5 November, which I'd managed to change to 4 November the moment I realised that Covid Lockdown would mean cancellation.
Traffic from W London was horrendous, and I'd had to phone them twice from the taxi and we ended up being a little over 45 minutes late.
When we finally arrived, the staff were fantastic, healing our frazzled nerves with calm professionalism (and the champagne we ordered helped)
Originally we'd been told that we'd have to vacate the table by 8pm, but that was quickly forgotten and we had the unhurried taster menu, which was lovely. Matched wines too (it was a birthday celebration, albeit a day early)
Nice view of fireworks from window too.
Staff and service were exceptional. Thank you.
Once it reopens, I'd highly recommend it.
It represents reasonable value for a meal of this standard, in this town, and since we can't go on holiday, felt the right thing to do, but by no means cheap.

Had a terrific meal yet again at Galvin at Windows. When one takes into account the quality of the food, the setting and the service this has to be hands down one of the best restaurants in the whole of London. We really enjoy Mayfair and all the restaurants it has to offer and we've always been really happy every time we have eaten here.
The Sunday roast was exceptional.
Service just the right balance between being friendly and helpful but not over attentive.
Tip: parking is very reasonable too in the underground car park if you book in advance.

The food, atmosphere and view is second to none. The only slight low is the glass of bubbles is prosecco instead of champagne.

What a night!!! Service - tick, food - tick, table - tick - just spectacular in every way. We had the Tasting Menu - an absolute blow out - not cheap and the pairing wine to go with it. I would of loved to go with the Fine Wines pairing, but had to call a halt at some point based on cost!! It was worth every penny, we were so well looked after. There was a large service charge at the end of the night, but we paid it because the service and food was outstanding. I am biased I love this place, but never had the Tasting Menu before and it was amazing - some things may not suit your palate - ie goats cheese but they accommodated a change to the menu - we didn't ask but my son didn't like one of the courses and they took it away and offered a change! Superb occasion, topped off with a stay over too!! Decadence completely!! Would I do it again, abso-blooming-lutely!

A lovely venue with excellent views. If you need a foil to a tricky meeting this works brilliantly. Food was well prepared and there's an excellent wine list. Perhaps lacking the service levels required to meet the cost overall but this may be Covid-related. I can think of other venues that I might have preferred for the same value however.

We had the discounted 4 course Summer menu which included a small glass of champagne each. We also had a bottle of wine, water and additional side.
Food was great, tasty and displayed well. Wine was a reasonable price.
Staff were all amazing. Friendly and efficient. We have been several times here before and wanted to support the restaurant during Covid times.
Great views by the window too!

We decided to book on the spur of the moment for a friend’s birthday and it did not disappoint . Fabulous food, great service and the soufflé for dessert was the best I have ever eaten. This offer should be taken whilst you get the chance to experience an amazing meal whilst we have an empty London... you won’t get it again!!

First restaurant visit post lockdown., so have high expectation. The ambiance as always is fabulous especially we were seated by the windows. This is not the first time we dined here. The staff was attentive and welcoming. We were look after well.

The Sunday lunch menus was well thought through, plenty of options. I had the Cured Faroe Islands salmon as a starter. It was well presented and the sauce full of flavour. However I was slightly disappointed with the actual salmon itself as it was blend, lack of taste. So that part of the ingredient needs to be replaced with higher quality item,

My Landes chicken, peas à la Française, Wiltshire truffle as main was good.

My partner has the beef for main. She thoroughly enjoyed it. The portion was generous. The only thing is that the Yorkshire pudding was on the dry crunchy side.

Overall we had a great lunch. A pleasure way to spend Sunday lunch with friends of course with social distance....
