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.

I have proposed at your resturant thid Saturday. We both loved the experience overall. Sarah and cviran (i forgot how to spell her name) was supereb! They comforted me through out thr night and gave the exceptional service. THEY MADE MY NIGHT COME TRUE! Assistant manager was also great came with many jokes through out the night. Balcony experience was nice too. Maybe the floors should have been in a better condition but due to night proposal this did not look so bad afterall. Main highlight was service i must say i was very very very impressed. Sarah me and my finance 'ayse' thought you was every so lovely!!!

I piatti non venivano assegnati alla persona giusta al tavolo. Confusione Nelle commande. Piatti curati ma alimenti non così ricercato da giustificarne il prezzo .tanti altri ristoranti sono decisamente meglio senza avere la stella Michelin. Ottimo L ambiente ma il ristorante ben al di sotto delle nostre aspettative . Con un rapporto qualità prezzo spropositato. Mi spiace ma è da rivedere

The food was absolutely exquisite, I went there for a friends birthday and the ambience was perfect.

The staff looked after us and brought out a little cake as a birthday treat for Martin, we were then invited to take a look behind the scene which was a lovely surprise and made the experience even more special.

Another diner we got chatting to at the end of the meal brought us both an additional glass of champagne and the atmosphere was just open, freindly and relaxing.

The views were beautiful and I couldn't faulter anything. I would highly recommend Galvin at Windows and hope I get the opportunity to experience a decadent meal again soon. Luxury at it's finest.

I really enjoyed the meal, service and view when I took a friend to celebrate a special occasion. However having thought I booked for lunch at 12.45, we arrived to be presented with a new 'brunch' menu, which seemed a strange mix of breakfast and lunch dishes. Bit strange really!

Great views and very vibrant bar for pre-meal drinks. Dark, moody and beautiful though Possibly a little too noisy as hard to have a conversation but I suppose what one person loves another may not. When seated in the restaurant at seats nearest the bar it was still hard to hear yourselves over the music from the bar. It was our third visit and this time my wife and I both left with a puzzled look. The food was Different/strange and not WOW. Kim chi risotto was like crunchy spicy spaghetti hoops and Parmesan Gnocchi bland. One thing that stuck with me was the maitre d chastising a waiter for the way he was pouring water. I think he thought no one could see him. Aggressive and unpleasant. Be more professional and sort out grievances outside public view.

We enjoyed a scrumptious tasting menu, heavily influenced by Korean flavours and styles. The quality of the cuisine, of course, was exceptionally high throughout, though some dishes stood out more than others. At the time of writing this review, the restaurant website is down, so I cannot go through every dish to comment each individually, which is what I would normally do, but overall, prawn dumplings in a rich broth stood out, as did yoghurt ice cream with a granita and hibiscus caviar. As Korean seasoning is laced by pungent and fermented aromas, I kind of feel that is does not lend itself as well as most to a tasting menu, as lacking the simple starches and bases on which to absorb the intensity of flavours. As an experience, however, it was a quality novelty worth experiencing, with absolutely impeccable service and unbeatable views.

It's not cheap, but then why would it be....the best view in town, top-level food (in both senses), well balanced service. Plus a hugely knowledgeable sommeliere (think her name was Rudina) who was charming and made such good recommendations. She really made the evening. We went midweek so not so "buzzy", but easier to focus on the subject matter! We have been before and will be going again. Nearly forgot....the olives were ridiculously good, never had such quality. Only slight gripe are the extra charges for certain dishes on the menu prestige.

The bar area is nice... for the view. Staff service was good, apart from first arriving and not being shown to a vacant table in the bar. The food is good - but not special enough for the price, nor the limited selection. We have eaten recently in other London venues where the overall ambience and special surroundings have been much better.

Had a great evening at Galvin at Windows. Our meal was excellent, imaginative creations and interesting taste combinations. The staff were attentive and very friendly and they did their best to make you feel comfortable and welcome. We were on time and therefore shown directly to our table. We were offered to have a pre-dinner drink in the bar which we declined as we were eager to get to the main event. The whole evening was relaxed and at no time did we feel pressure to move on. The views were great and the ambience vibrant as this was Saturday and the restaurant was very busy. The whole evening was a bit pricey but you get what you pay for - a prime location with top class food and service. We will visit again.

Booked here for my GF birthday and it was outstanding from the food to the service to the view, quite expensive but what do you expect from a Michelin star restaurant in the heart of London.
Sometimes in "posh" restaurants you can be made to feel a little uncomfortable, not here we were made to feel very welcome and the service is 1st class literally nothing is to much trouble. Food was excellent and after dinner I popped the question where they took us for a tour around the kitchen and taken out onto a private balcony with a fantastic view where proposed, though my girlfriend is terrified of heights so we didn't stay out there long 😂.
Would highly recommend galvin at windows to anyone

We ordered meals not specified as or without any suggestion of Asian foods, but taste and ingredients are all ended up in too much Koran influence. We would prefer to go to Koran restaurant for far cheaper prices.
