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.

Second time and we had the 3 course offer. Food was up to the same standard as when on the prestigue menu. Service was impeccable and friendly and the sommelier was amazing. I normally hate dessert wines but this one was off the charts! We both had an amazing time and would go back (and am planning on returning very soon)

We came here for a birthday dinner and it was absolutely fantastic. We had tasting menu with wine pairings and it was worth every penny - delicious and exciting food and each course presented with a different wine. Jules, the sommelier, was great at chatting about the wines. I took my Dad for his 60th birthday and they made it so special for him. Could not recommend enough and would go again in a heartbeat.

Exquisite food, even on the more simplistic and cheaper 3 course lunch menu. The waiting staff are friendly and attentive, while the wine list is extensive. Make sure you try the complimentary marshmallows! You can ask for boxes to take them home with you if you're too full - don't just leave them there as we saw some people do!

Mmmm a bit late.. took us in anyway but wouldn’t let me us have 5mins to look at the Menu. Like okay we were late but at least let me sit down and have a look at what I want to eat 🤷🏾‍♂️. Not let us walk in and stand right there to wait and take the order. And when we asked for 5mins we got and aggressive no.. BUT OTHER THAN THAT ITS WAS REALLY GOOD!!

After reading so many great reviews we went there for dinner and had the Pre-Theatre menu. Food was average, the beef was so rich in sauce it was sickly and we couldn't even finish it. Service was excellent, but there was an extremely loud group of diners and they made the whole experience horrible for us as we just wanted to eat our meal and leave. I think management should have spoken to them because you don't expect this level of disrespect in a Michelin star restaurant. I wouldn't go there again or recommend it to anyone as the whole experience was simply average.

Probably one of my favourite restaurants in central London. The view from every seat is spectacular including the bar area. The service is extremely attentive and polite. And food is carefully crafted and delicious, including the brunch options on Saturday.

Food is splendid! Although it would be even nicer if a picture menu can be provided. I love to see how the food looks before I ordered, my own habit though (LOL)

Although it is a bit far from many main attractions in London so it took me around 40 minutes to travel from Westminster that day, but it is near Hyde park so perhaps arrange a Hyde park visit into the schedule in the same day would be nice.

Great restaurant in a superb location with great views. We had the pre theatre menu, and the food was great too!

The service was superb as usual, but unfortunately they got one of our deserts wrong. The restaurant manager was quick to rectify this, so no complaints.

They possibly have the best marshmallows I have ever tasted. Even gave us a little box of them to take home!

Had lunch with Australian visitors on Thursday. Chose somewhere with a view but also excellent food etc. The service is always good here. Views are lovely.

I guess if I was being picky, I would say, we ordered a side dish and they brought two Servings... which costs more, and we didn’t ask for that. I also would prefer to know what the percentage service is... just an amount added before the total is slightly misleading. It also looks less “optional.”

So, it’s not inexpensive to dine here but it is good.

We were greeted at the door by a lovely lady who told us who our server was for the day. We didn’t get to customise my meal but the next table managed to! That was impressive - we didn’t finish our sides but I guess we should’ve let them know we didn’t eat artichokes or lentils! Still a good experience, great service!!! Love the soup!

My girlfriend and I went and had an amazing time. We did the full tasting menu with the wine pairing and loved every selection. The staff was wonderful and moved us to a window view without even asking. Also, after the meal they walked us through the kitchen to show us a private view of the city overlooking Hyde Park. Beautiful location, food and staff!

Left a review on Trip Advisor under MickeyV0818. Great Sunday lunch. Kier Royal, Bellini to start. Parsnip soup and smoked salmon/beetroot starters, very tasteful. Hake in a cream sauce with carrot purée, my wife raved about it. Teriyaki salmon on a bed of pork belly and spicy cabbage was wonderful and unusual. Rose and Chablis, good brands by the glass, reasonably priced. Apple tatin and chocolate fondant rounded out a fabulous Sunday lunch. High marks to the staff, especially Sarah who looked after us. We will be back.

We enjoyed a special meal at Galvin's at Windows last weekend ahead of Christmas, and for our
ten-year wedding anniversary. We'd originally booked specifically to experience the festive menu, so were a bit disappointed that it wasn't available the night we were there, but the food was still wonderful regardless. The beef wellington in particular, was amazing and very memorable. I also loved the pear
souffle - gorgeous.

The views from the top of the Hilton are outstanding, and it is really special being up there, gazing out over London.

The bill came to £395.00 for the two of us, which included a 'discretionary' 15% service charge on top of what was already a very expensive meal. That bill sum included a cocktail each, a few glasses of wine (not even a bottle) and a three course meal each. I will say that the service was excellent, but on top of the overall service it is suggested to also include a further gratuity. The way the service charge was positioned on the bill also made it very awkward for us to contest it, or leave slightly less. (We're probably used to leaving tips of 10-15% in London.)

The ambience and decor at Galvin's is beautiful, and we appreciated the lovely staff giving us a table by the window for our meal. The adjacent cocktail bar however, while also lovely, had really loud music playing that crept into the restaurant, which I found a bit inelegant.

We had an amazing time though, and really want to thank the staff for going out of their way to making it a really lovely evening for us. The postcards (with the offer to send them to anywhere in the world), as well as the Happy Anniversary amuse bouche were beautiful touches, and very appreciated!
