Excellent food and service in a very relaxed atmosphere. Was relatively quiet which is what I like. Very good service both downstairs in the bar prior, as well as upstairs in the restaurant. Was "upgraded" to the members section upstairs which is what I am basing my feedback on.

We were kindly put upstairs in the private members club where they had a live Latin band. The singer was amazing. All the food was really tasty, the staff were really kind and attentive. The ambience up there was really special with a really warm feeling. The outdoor terrace was also really beautiful. I will 100% be back very soon. It truly was the perfect girls evening.

Thank you Coya

Coya is a slightly confused venue that charges a premium largely based on its Mayfair location. It claims to be Peruvian/ Japanese / Chinese fusion food yet sets itself more Planet Hollywood with graffiti style paintings of Darth Vader and Storm Troopers. The food was mostly ok - but not outstanding - lacking either subtlety or real punch... The ceviche with truffle and the Pulpo were good, however the Sets, whilst tasty, comprised of 4 small pieces of mushroom on 2 skewers - not quite tapas for sharing as stated on the menu! Overall it felt - average at a premium rate...

I took my fiance for his birthday on Sunday evening. The ambience was nice, the service was great but I was a little disappointed by the lack of allergen forewarning on the dishes we ordered.

Upon ordering I was asked if I had any allergies and I mentioned that I had a shellfish allergy. We ordered quite a few dishes to start with and I was not warned that the dishes would have traces of shellfish in them (eg the oil it was fried in). It was only when the dishes were delivered that the waiter said that I could not have them. We ordered x4 starters of which only x1 dish I could consume. I did not want to make a fuss as it was my fiances' birthday so I did not complain. However, whenever I visit restaurants of this calibre (Roka and Nobu), I am always warned at the point of ordering of the potential risks not at the end. No alternatives were offered either.

Otherwise, the standard of the dishes I did try were lovely. The cocktails were amazing - more importantly, my fiance, a cocktail aficionado, was very impressed by the mixes!

Excellent dining ambience and decor. Staff also excellent, attentive friendly and well groomed. Only quibble was very expensive for slightly larger party. Perhaps smaller set menu for early diners an option?

Really interesting menu at COYA and the wood fired grill gives the food a great flavour, especially the steaks. Ceviche was excellent- especially the truffle base ones. The service was a little off the mark initially but they guys soon sorted that out and it was really nice to chat to the sommelier and staff who were very knowledgable about their wines and food. There was a bit of a party atmosphere the night we dined - which really added to the enjoyment - the live house music was a real treat and kept us in the bar for after dinner cocktails!

They gave us a table in the member club in the ground floor which was perfect. Not so loud, and the club is very cool furnished. Food was excellent as always, the place very nice, and the service very good. Coya is definitely one of my favorites in London

Tasting menu was fantastic, varied and exciting dishes. Great service throughout. Price wise, at the upper end of what you can expect to pay in London (especially the wine list) but well worth the outlay in my opinion. It is fairly crowded and loud which may not be to all tastes. Will certainly be returning, one of the best food experiences I have ever had.

Wine pouring aggressive and the music too loud - particularly for 2 girls trying to catch up on a Tuesday night. I felt they put us at one of the worst tables - somewhat disrespectful given that I am a regular customer.

The food was absolutely outstanding. We had the tasting menu, which was great to try the different specialities. The service is nice, and some of the staff are super friendly, but it is quite mechanic and regimented. The drinks are overpriced, particularly the wine, which is more expensive than in Michelin star restaurants - this is a shame as it makes everything feel slightly overpriced. Unfortunately, it was my partner's birthday and even though this was communicated when making the booking, for the first time ever in a restaurant in London, this was completely neglected.
