The Forte family have been dedicated to hospitality for four generations. Charlie’s is named after the founding Forte, Lord Charles, who loved traditional charm as well as modern touches in his hotels. In his honour, Charlie’s marries much-loved convention with modernity, showcasing the evolution of British cuisine, with cosy booths, antique panelling and bright botanical wallpaper.
The menus at Charlie’s celebrate British culinary heritage with creative, contemporary flair while embracing a bygone era of service. Overseen by Adam Byatt, produce and its provenance and seasonality are of utmost importance, and each dish comprises authentic ingredients personally sourced by the team from the highest quality suppliers across the world.
From succulent Sunday roasts and traditional classics served on Brown’s sparkling silver trolley, to tempting sharing plates and mouth-watering desserts, Charlie’s is the quintessential contemporary British restaurant in Mayfair.

    I felt the Valentine's Course menu wasn't of better quality than I expected. Also, it was really expensive for only 3 dishes for £120 with the small food. However, the waiters had a good service.
    Charlie'sResponded on 18 February 2024
    Dear Isaree, Thank you for your review. Whilst I was pleased to see your positive rating for the service, I was indeed truly sorry to hear about your disappointment with our Valentine's Day offering, and I wish to sincerely apologise for any disappointment caused. Please know that your feedback will be addressed with our Chef for further internal follow up. Thank you for both your positive and constructive comments, and I do hope that notwithstanding this, you might give us the opportunity to better serve you on a future occasion.

    Whilst other high-end restaurants decline, Charlie’s maintains its standards, blue cheese salad starter was simple but perfect, made with crumbled Stilton NOT just the watered down blue cheese dressing others purveyor, the chicken escalope was exceptional, beautifully done. Rum baba needs to be re-thought and taken back to its original construct and strong rum flavour.. the staff are amongst the best brigade in London and of course the ambience is elegant, light and tasteful.

    This was our first time visiting the 'Donovan' bar and then "Charlie's" restaurant in Brown's hotel (Albermarle Street) and my partner & I were well looked after and had a very enjoyable and relaxing evening. It didn't take us long - even before we had started eating - to agree that we were going to return soon. The service in both the bar and restaurant was excellent and the food in the restaurant outstanding.

    The venison was excellent but the fillet steak was poor. Otherwise the starters and desserts were perfect. As regards the steak Charlie’s needs to ensure that the butcher supplies only the finest quality of fillet steak - the steak was cooked perfectly but this cannot deal with the basic problem.

    Dear John, Thank you for your review and your valuable feedback. Whilst I was pleased to see your positive comments about the starters, desserts and the venison dish, I was very sorry to hear that you felt disappointed with the quality of the fillet steak. Please know that your feedback will be addressed with our Chef for further internal follow up with our supplier. Thank you for both your positive and constructive comments, and I do hope that notwithstanding this, you might give us the opportunity to better serve you on a future occasion. Best regards, Jesus Adorno-S. Director of Hospitality

    Obviously prices have increased everywhere but t done of the food was sadly average and portions small so not great value for money. We didn’t have desserts as they were £14 each and felt that was too pricey and maybe wouldn’t be worth the money. We were given a chefs special menu which two guests wished for the chefs main course and was only told when our order was taken that they hadn’t any left. These chefs special menus were still being given out to tables after we were told so hoping other guests weren’t disappointed too.

    Delicious food, nicely seasonal with game to the fore. The crab salad was impeccable and exquisitely, delicately presented. The sommelier Andrea was terrific. All in all a delight!

    First time at Charlie's. Lovely restaurant in a great setting and a great meal. Very pricey though - 4 people, three courses and 1.5 bottles of wine and slightly south of £500. Eating in the West End is so expensive nowadays!

    Extremely average food. My wife’s beer battered sea bass was overcooked by several minutes and was very dry as a result. My roast beef was rare (I knew that) but was unacceptably tough. A very poor food standard for a supposedly high end restaurant.
