We had a gorgeous meal in a wonderfully inviting space with excellent service on Sunday night. I certainly will return to try more dishes and to experience the relaxing and beautiful designed room again. Would highly recommend for date or occasion.

The portions on the set menu are on the small size and not a great choice for non-pork eaters, a fish main would have been appreciated. Quality of food is very high. Can't fault it as a venue as there is a real buzz about the place and the decor is so quirky

Booked outdoor seating on opentable and they said they had no outdoor seating available on arrival. Set menu quite limited. Smoked Mackerel salad had barely a scrap of smoked mackerel in it. Pork with harissa was delicious though! Staff and ambiance was lovely. Overall, good value, but wouldn’t go back again.

We went for the 2 course deal. Choice was a little limited and portions were very small. But quality and flavour were excellent. Wine is v expensive as are cocktails. Our total bill was £120 for the meal which came with a drink, a further carafe of rose , 3 cocktails (not each!) and the tip.

I booked a table for 4 for a pre-theatre meal at 6pm on a Friday, we were seated in the outside terrace which was lovely and the service was excellent. We had a show to get too at 7.30 and managed to fit in a 3 course meal in that time.
The food was delicious and such good value for what it was. I'd definitely recommend it for pre theatre dining.

I booked a large table (& an additional overspill table) for my leaving dinner and I was so impressed with how everything was handled. In particular our waitress, Rasa, was exceptional. For a large group everything was very relaxed and unhurried. It made such a difference to the evening and we stayed far longer than anticipated. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant and bar - such a great feel and such professional and friendly staff. Very well done!

We visit the Hamyard restaurant a few times per year and this time we had a lovely seat outside. The terrace outside is really special and unique in central London. Secluded, quiet and romantic in the middle of Soho.
The service was meant well and we had a lovely waitress but their system of serving drinks needs work as it takes really long. By the time we received our first glass of wine we were half through our dinner and we send back a second glass of wine as it arrived after we finished our dessert. A free tea was offered though. The food was mediocre for the prices being charged. We love the Hamyard hotel restaurant but for asking the prices they do they really have to up their game.

This is my third visit. Previously I ordered from the. Fixed price menu which was very tasty and excellent value. I was told that this was no longer available so I ordered a crab salad which was pretty ordinary not helped by the anchovies with which it was mixed. There are a lot of superb restaurants offering lunch at around £20. For example Milos so I’m afraid I won’t be going back.

Service was absolutely appalling, had to ask the waiters for absolutely everything, including a request to take our food order, and to order more wine. Dont know what's up with some people. Very annoying that a service charge is always added on, but this is VERY difficult to remove when you are hosting clients. I wont be going back. The food and atmosphere was nice but not amazing.

Main course portion sizes very small. This was resolved by the restaurant manager who proceeded to present us with an additional portion which was a nice gesture and appreciated. A little something could be offered with the teas/coffees . We had mint teas which were £4.50!!! and a little biscuit, tablet or such like should be offered with that. The service was very good. May go back on a deal.

The afternoon tea was a lovely experience to share with out of town guests. Good value for money and the service was excellent.
This was our first time visiting the Ham Yard and I was not aware of the different seating areas. Next time I will be sure to request a table in the Orangerie. A lovely oasis with relaxed seating a, sky lights and greenery. There were tables available in the orangerie but we were told we could not be moved without booking a table there two days in advance.

The Ham Yard is always a great location, nice ambiance. But the food---really really mediocre. The steak which we ordered medium came back fully cooked and tough, and the fish was just 'fine'. Great wine, nice atmosphere but not a place to bring a foodie.

We enjoyed a breakfast outside on a very warm Saturday in London at the tranquil Ham Yard.
Staff were great and the breakfast choices were varied and excellently presented. Would not be surprised to hear that Ham Yard was voted as Best London Breakfast!

Ham Yard is better for lunch, tea or drinks than for dinner. We had a nice afternoon there a month ago, but dinner three nights ago was VERY loud, with disorganized service--we seemed to have three waitresses, except we couldn't get attention for ordering or drinks refills when we needed to--and not great food. The set menu is a good deal, but the portions were small--the starter was ridiculous--and not memorable.

Previously I had only visited for a drink on the weekend and enjoyed the outside space. The dinner reservation was rather underwhelming. There was a lot of service staff but somehow no one ever really looked after you. Drinks were forgotten, new ones were hard to order, etc. While the food quality was decent, it didn’t quite warrant the price tag and the experience did not make up the difference. Nothing was horrible but I don’t think we’ll be back for dinner.

The service was amazing. The food was appalling. It was so bland that I had to ask for ketchup. Dessert was also way too sweet and the chocolate cake did not taste great at all; it tasted burnt.

The waitresses and waiters do an incredible job and are so wonderfully polite. But I can’t get over the bad food. I was really let down. I paid £74 for 2 mains and 2 desserts including the service charge.

This is the second time we have visited Ham Yard Restaurant and it was an even better experience this time. Although quite crowded for a pre theatre meal, the service was superb. My husband is allergic to vinegar and they went out of their way to ensure that he could have his choice but without the vinegar. He really enjoyed it. It is pricey though, but the space and the ambiance make it worthwhile for a special occasion.

My third visit to Ham Yard but the first lunchtime experience. You can really appreciate the beautiful restaurant interior at this quieter time. The set menu is excellent value and the swordfish with mango salad was delicious! The service was, as on previous occasions, perfect.
