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.

Galvin at Windows was a highlight during our stay in London! We were so impressed with every part of our experience. The food was delectable, service impeccable, the views outstanding (views of the entire city) and the value unbelievable with our Groupon deal! We have eaten at many wonderful restaurants but this stands out as one of the top 5 of all time! We were treated like royalty, as I'm sure all customers are treated! Thank you, Galvin at Windows for an absolute lovely experience!

Absolutely wonderful time at GaW. My first time here for dinner and the staff and Maître d treated my partner and I like royalty. Any requests we had were fulfilled and the food was absolutely gorgeous (and a lot more filling than I had thought it would have been). Will definitely come back again, lovely gem of a restaurant and not too busy either!

We loved :
- The food is fantastic, all the dishes were delicious - and the desserts were perfect.
- Service is very careful and attentive.

What we regret :
- The room was very cold . We regretted having brought nothing to cover our shoulders.
- we made our reservation 2 months ago, yet we were seated in the only table of the restaurant from which there is no outisde view at all !!!- We were seated in a corner , surrounded by curtains hiding a blind zone . This was very disappointing, as we were 2 persons seated around a big table intended for 4 guests, and we were facing the other guests of the restaurant instead of enjoying the view...

The food is good, not great. There are upcharges for many of the items, and the staff pushes extras at every chance.
There are much better choices nearby.

I booked Galvin at Windows for my 30th wedding anniversary. This was our first visit and it wont be our last. From our arrival, the staff were courteous and helpful but very discreet. Service was 5 star and the food was excellent. There is a calm ambience which is very relaxing and great attention to detail. I certainly would recommend.

We had an amazing Sunday afternoon at Galvin. We started off in the bar area first whilst we waited for our table to be ready. Although we did have to wait an extra 15 mins, the service was great and the waiting staff were very personable. We had the Sunday roast offer with an amazing view of Buckingham Palace. It was all great, but if we did have one comment it would be that the giant Yorkshire pudding could have done with some gravy. It was also a really nice touch to send out two post cards of the view to our families with all costs covered.

As usual we had a fab time. From the cheery, friendly desk staff right through to special attention fro the sommeliers. Absolutely everyone there is a credit to the Galvin set up. The food is very good! I am loving the Korean influences coming through thanks to Chef! Hopefully, we will visit for the Korean tasting menu in September. Can't fault it! XX

Opted for the tasting menu with wine pairings, and we weren't disappointed! Although it works out quite expensive it was definitely worth it for the whole experience. I couldn't fault any aspect of our visit, from the welcome on arrival, to the attentive and efficient service, to the exquisite food. Special mention must go to our sommelier (unfortunately I've forgotten her name), who took a lot of time and trouble to explain the wines and the reasoning for the pairing.
The food itself is obviously the main attraction, and it lived up to expectations. The amount of skill on display, and the amazing flavours and textures, were just superb. Already saving up for a return visit.

Food was overpriced and far from satisfying both in flavor and portion size. The pavlova was lovely but was not able to make up for the appetizer and main course.

Absolutely fantastic service, the waiters made my mum feel like the only person in the room, and treated us like VIP's showing us to a surprise balcony after dinner to see the incredible view of London! Having eaten in many top restaurants in London I can honestly say this was the most unforgettable and unbeatable evening. This is how service should be done! And not to mention the incredible food, so much attention to detail, the marshmallows at the end left my mum utterly delighted, she has not stopped talking about the night! Thank you Galvin at Windows Team x

The occasion was a birthday lunch for my aunt who was visiting from Barbados. The atmosphere was relaxing, the staff attentive, the food sublime. A great time was had by all. The icing on the cake was the courteous staff and the visit to the kitchens courtesy of the manager. Will definitely be returning.

I cannot thank Galvin at Windows enough for such a spectacular dinner. The staff were exemplary, the food impeccable and the views stunning. The staff were knowledgeable, providing recommendations, which were utterly spot on. Starters of pork and raw kingfish, were both beyond delicious, full of mouth watering flavours and of the highest quality. The staff were attentive and incredibly friendly without being overwhelming. I took someone special there for his birthday and really wanted it to be an incredible experience; Galvin at Windows did not disappoint. Everything exceeded expectations, all culminating in the perfect, romantic evening.
