    First rate food and service, interesting wines, sadly nearly empty , presumably because it is new. Sure hope it lasts because it is a winner.

    My wife and I booked this as an anniversary treat, making use of a voucher I received as a Christmas present. Since receiving the voucher, the restaurant has changed from Seven Park Place into Franatelli and we were slightly apprehensive given some recent reviews. We have to say how wrong, in our opinion, those reviews were, which perhaps led to the very quiet lunch service and the only reason I knocked off one star for ambience. The service and welcome we received from Federico was exceptional, he explained everything about the restaurant, its philosophy and the food being served. We opted for the set lunch, which at £30 per head for three courses was truly great value and we thoroughly enjoyed every course. The wine menu is a bit pricey, but hey it’s Mayfair, so what do you expect and having said that we opted for the cheapest bottle of red at £36 which was very drinkable, the next up on the list was £68, so quite a jump, with a few bottles around the £70 to £80 mark, before you start getting into the £100+ range. I know many will not bat an eyelid at those prices, but just saying the cheap bottle was very good so you have a choice and at least we were able to enjoy a post dinner cocktail within our budget! I conclusion, we’d highly recommend Francatelli and if you’re not sure, try the £30 set menu, you can’t really go wrong. I’m sure we’ll be back.

    Exceptionally good value tasting menu with wine accompaniment. The quality and presentation of the food is always excellent and service first rate - this really deserves to be far busier given the quality, price and location - it’s easy to find food and service at half the quality but twice the price within a 5 minute walk.

    Menu was supposed to be based on Francatelli's cookbook, (Queen Victoria's chef), but only two items were from it. This was misleading. The restaurant had no atmosphere and looks dated. Only one other table was occupied. Considering the menu consists of mainly "British" traditional fare, it was outrageously expensive. The cocktails from the table list were poor and did not taste like they had been professionally mixed. However the service, and sommelier advice was first class.

    This place was such a shame. £48 for a rib-eye and what arrived was a thin, void of any flavour piece of meat. I’ve had better steaks at flat iron. The whole point of a great ribeye is the fat, the bone and the marbling. This had none of it. My husbands ham was ok but nothing to right home about for £34. The cheapest bottle of wine was £65 which is ridiculous, I’m all for spending a lot of money on a beautiful wine, but having recognised quite a few of the bottles and then seeing the price tag, we’ve have the same bottle for a lot less in other restaurants. This is the restaurant time forgot, dated decor and not in an ironic way, stuffy service and zero ambiance. It was Friday night and this place was dead! Such a shame as I had such high hopes for it. We will never come back here. We were previously at noble dot for a drink and wish we had stayed there, where the wine was reasonable and the food coming out of the kitchen looked incredible. There are 100’s of way more incredible restaurants that are worth your time over this place.

    I thought it was overpriced for what it was. Not a memorable experience.

    We highly recommend this restaurant - we went there for dinner and had 3 courses. The food was technically really excellent, we particularly enjoyed these two mains: monkfish and ham special with madeira sauce. The service was great and we felt very well looked after (thanks Salvatore, Federico, Nino and Sofia!). Good flow between the courses, without lots of waiting around. Very nice ambience too. Looking forward to returning!

    The food was nice, but the plating looks where nothing like the pictures on the site, the service was way to eager. Every 5 minutes there was someone to ask us anything, within 2 hours we were out and about. We where looking for a Romantic evening, but felt rushed
