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.

Nice setting and lovely views. I was a little disappointed by the service- one of our guests has a food allergy and this could have been handled better. There was a lack of clarity from staff as to what she could have from the menu- I would have expected this to be a priority in a restaurant of this standard.

The whole of point of booking this restaurant was for views of London. Whilst they were great from the bar area and from most tables in the restaurant. i spent 2 hours, up a corner, staring at a green curtain!
The postcards were a very nice touch.

Food would have been marked as Very Good but the vegan main dish served to the evening's Host was uninteresting, with no discernable protein content. And the only other vegan main was risotto, which is just seen too often on menus for vegans. All of my Guests reported their food as very good indeed. Wine was very good. Service very good - friendly but quality.

We loved it --to the point of loosing track of time and keeping our driver waiting. Staff however delivered bill in record time. Faultless service.
I'm afraid that as octogenerians we do not take photographs of our dining experiences (and certainly not of our food!) but we will tell friend and family that it was a delightful experience.

Great setting, excellent food and staff, but very high prices that aren't clearly stated on the menu. We ended up with a whopper of a bill that we didn't feel was justified for the food and drink we'd consumed. It felt overpriced vs the quality. You're paying for the view. Only worth it for a very special occasion.

I had a very pleasant lunch together with my 4y.o. daughter. Food was on a very good level, even my daughter who doesn't usually eat everything ate quite well. She also got a present with some drawing books and pencils so she was very busy drawing which gave her mommy some time to eat

It's a tourist trap, not sure how this place got one Michelin star. The view is great, but the rest of the experience was disappointing and definitely was not worth the price.
Atmosphere: like a train station, very crowded and noisy
Food: Meh, my winter salad was not tasty at all, beef Wellington was good but not cooked to medium like I requested, the souffle on dessert was awful
Service: while everything arrived as ordered (but constantly places in front of the wrong member of the group) we felt rushed to finish our meal
Value: very expensive compared to other (better) michelin star restaurants

This restaurant is really over rated and super pricey for the whole experience. The food was ok, I’ve had much better at similar standard restaurants (City Social). In addition, the tables in the restaurant and bar are placed in a weird way; especially at the bar. Why have the tables facing away from the windows? I wasn’t keen. I didn’t like my main so the manager did give me a complementary dessert which was nice. The menu is also limited I didn’t like anything in the desserts section although I did try to have the 3 courses for £84 pounds option. Overall I’d give it a 3 and wouldn’t recommend. Maybe for just a drink...

I had visited previously and was excited to visit again but the trip was thoroughly let down by the food. The choices on the set menu were not very inspiring- I ended having chicken with fois gras which was huge - too rich and with no sharp flavours to cut through the richness- there was some green gel that was very bland. For main I paid an £8 supplement for lobster tail that was very tough. My dining partner had pork belly that was not hot and as such the fat was congealed- she didn’t eat much and the serving staff asked if she had liked it - she said she hadn’t and they did provide a 2nd main which was nice but this was after we had finished and therefore had to wait at least 20 mins. The dessert was lovely and the nicest thing about the meal. In summary, I paid over £260 for food that was worse than mediocre- the service was great but the whole evening was a let down. Not what you expect for this amount of money and a Michelin started establishment- I won’t be visiting again.

The food and view were good indeed. Unfortunately, my experience was ruined by the first conversation with our waitress. I was terribly sorry that I was late but before I was able to speak to my friends whom have already arrived on time, the waitress just dropped ‘we have been waiting for you..bla..bla...bla...’ and I was not even settle down! She just rushed my to order my drink and food. For the whole dinning experience, we did not feel welcomed or cared. All she did was rushing us for the courses! It was absolutely not expected from a restaurant inside a hotel, not mentioning this restaurant is always on the list of recommended restaurants in London. Such hospitality simply killed all the hard-work of the chef. It was sadly a disappointed experience.

Everything was great for the Saturday brunch. The view and staff. The food was tasty. I would just recommend adding more vegeterian options.
I like the idea of sending a cardnote to anyone anywhere.

We used the opentable offer, which was 3 course lunch and a complimentary bellini for £33. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The mackerel starter was particularly delicious. The service was great - very friendly and attentive staff. The views are brilliant and general ambience good once the restaurant fills up a bit. The only thing I would say is that although the lunch offer is brilliant value, the extras do mount up - wine, water, coffee. So you do end up spending quite a bit more on those. However overall we had a really lovely, memorable lunch and would definitely return.

What a wonderful restaurant. From the moment we arrived the service was excellent. Drinks in the bar beforehand introduced us to the amazing views. Our table was booked for 13.00 but there was no rush to seat us which was lovely. When we did go through to the restaurant we were not disappointed. We were seated at one of the window tables with even more fantastic views of London.
We had selected the set menu which was amazing value. There was no lack in choice, quality, taste or presentation. The most difficult part of the meal was selecting what we were actually going to eat. As we were still drinking our pre dinner drinks the complimentary Bellini was saved for after we had eaten. The staff were friendly and happy to suggest recommendations both of food and wine. I was concerned we might be rushed as it said in the booking tables were for 2 hours but this was not the case. It was such a relaxing enjoyable lunch that we lost track of all time..... We were also very lucky to meet Fred Sirieix who came over to chat to us and ask how we were. An even more charming man in real life.
