Attentive service from knowledgable and friendly staff. Good choice of food from the a la carte menu and the Open Table offer of a free glass of champagne got the proceedings off to a lively start. My friends were suitably impressed and I would definitely return.

I recently visited Galvin at the Athenaeum Hotel while on an overnight stay at the Hotel.
If I lived in this area of London it would most definately be a regular restaurant to go to for any occasion.
The welcome was warm and efficient. The choice of menu for Breakfast was amazing.
The menu for early evening dinner had a wide and varied choice and was excellent.
Nothing was to much trouble for the staff, who were all very helpful.
I would most definately dine there again.

The hotel has been recently renovatedand is modern now. The afternoon tea was served with champagne and the food was very good. We had extra sandwiches which was great. There were also cakes after the tiered ones with scones. The jams were rhubarb and lemon curd but we both would have preferred traditional strawberry jam. The service was excellent.

Galvin at the Athenaeum - another great meal and friendly classy service. Have taken up their special offer of three courses with a glass of Brut several times and each time the menu and food is superb.

Would recommend it to anyone. A real hidden gem.

We had a great time here - great venue, menu, service and value! I booked the 3 course set menu option with a glass of sparkling wine and with another 500 ml of wine the bill with service was about £85. The staff were attentive and friendly - you can task for more and I will definitely be going back!

Galvin' s a great place in Mayfair to meet , with style, and the right level of formality in the service. Meal deal was good variety but avoid the pork (very salty) - they did quickly bring an alternative.

Been before several times. Would visit again.
