Had the set menu and the food was amazing! I’m lactose intolerant and they were very accommodating. Our waitress was extremely friendly and very knowledgable. Beautiful building and decor. Overall very good, although cocktails and drinks are quite pricey but that is not unusual in a central hotel!

I ended up coming here after a not so great experience at another restaurant. The interior of the restaurant is beautifully designed with a menu that fits for its aesthetic. Nestled in the Ham Yard Hotel, it's truly a gem that you need to visit (I don't think I would have found it without going on OpenTable since it's tucked back from the street). Great breakfast menu and great service!

Tucked away in a quiet corner yet so close to picadilly and regent street. An excellent dining experience - great value, yet the food was beautifully cooked and presented and the service could not be faulted. we were there for a pre-theatre dinner but the afternoon teas looked amazing - will have to go back and try one. And the bathroom facilities were excellent too!

Everything we ate was lovely but this is also a great location with really well laid out spaces. Incredibly friendly staff throughout our most recent visit for a pre theatre dinner - we were having so much fun, we thought about skipping the start of the show!

Cool venue for sure, but it doesnt matter when staff are inattentive. It took almost 25mins, one reminder, and a couple waves before anyone came to the table. Tough to come back from when hungry and thirsty. You then naturally start to spot the bad more than the good. Nice room, atmos was ok too. But again i had to chase the wine that hadnt arrived half way through starters. And oddly a £50 bottle of wine was served in the same cups you drink water from.
The rest was fine and mains were pretty good. I’m happy to pay top whack but the basics of service have to be there. It wasnt crazy expensive but i’ve been to much much better for the same price and cheaper.
Good to try places, maybe we got unlucky but wont go back.

Our first experience of Ham Yard, and it won't be our last.
This was a long-overdue get-together and the bar and restaurant were the perfect place for us.
The service was quite exceptional, and our dinner and wine delicious.

Great buzzy place, lots of places to sit. The decor is really pleasing, very modern yet comfortable. Service was excellent. Food was very nice, had their offer 2 courses and bubbles 19.50. Only had slight issue with salad being vinegary, they saw to this and offered alternative. Quite tricky to find could do with some explicit directions.

Unlike previous very good experience, this was spoiled by a waiter who appeared to ignore our need to leave in time for a theatre although stated at booking time as well as on the night

A little gem tucked away in one of London's many cul-de-sacs. But then, not so little. A large restaurant, bar and lounge, all beautifully decorated, all part of a Hotel. We had lunch on the outside terrace which was well protected and dominated by a lovely tree. The Special Offer menu was good and the food and service were excellent.

Went with friends, was very good value on the special deal. Restaurant staff lovely but those in the bar were very curt when we asked if our table was ready 20 mins after it was booked for.

The service, food and whole experience at Ham Yard were fantastic. We went for a farewell dinner as my sister was moving to Australia, and the attentive door staff shared this with our waitress, who made sure it was a delightful dinner to celebrate the occasion. Especially thoughtful was when the staff took the time to write 'Good luck' on her desert as a finale to the evening. Such friendly and considerate service that enhanced the delicious meal and ambience of the restaurant. Will be recommending Ham Yard to friends and family for a long time.

The food was delicious and service truly outstanding. The waitress more than attentive, she recommended food and provided GF bread for my daughter. We had a wonderful evening in a lovely setting.

Breakfast at Ham Yard today.. epic customer service! Very good food. Definitely worth visiting.

Had a lovely meal at the Ham Yard. Would definitely return. Service was good and friendly. Liked the restaurant layout too - very comfortable and not on top of other diners - thank you! But the food was the star of the show - yum! Not the best value restaurant but I thought it well worth it.

A very pleasant lunch making the most of outdoor dining although the sky was grey it was still warm.

Staff exemplary with helpful advice and explanation of dishes.

Surprised that we were able to get a table for Sunday lunch.

Set in a lovely location, and the building has a beautiful interior. There is a lot of capacity for diners and what this means is that it's actually a very noisy restaurant, so not a great one for intimacy but good for if you want a lively meal.

Food wide, we had the dressed crab and ribeye steak with spring greens and honey and lemon carrots as sides. The mains themselves were good, the fries weren't my favourite as they felt soggy and slightly undercooked. The carrots were really lovely, but a little over powering after a while with the amount of butter and honey, The spring greens though were really disappointing, just steamed with little or no seasoning, a very sad dish. We also had the salted caramel mille fieulle as a shared dessert, that was disappointing too. Maybe it's too much time spent watching Bake Off The Professionals, but we thought it was very dry and too sweet, there wasn't anything to balance out the dryness and the overly sweet components.

Our server was lovely, but very busy so it did take us time to grab his attention at times when we wanted something.

Overall, nice venue, ok food, not really value for money.

A very pleasant room, good service, light tasty food and a deal to include a glass of sparkling wine. All excellent ingredients for a business lunch. Also much appreciated that we were able to sit and talk for as long as we needed without any hustle or bustle. Will come again.

We always enjoy coming to the Ham Yard. It was a beautiful warm evening on a Friday night and our table was outside. We had the special menu and the food was delicious. We were prepared to order a la carte as discounted menus are often disappointing however the special dinner menu had limited but lovely options. The only downside was we were told after we ordered our 2nd bottle of wine that we had to give back our table right away. This should have been mentioned when we were sat down or at the very least when we ordered our 2nd bottle of wine! Sadly there were no other tables available in the bar. Essentially, we had to down our wine. Not the best ending for our lovely night out at the Ham Yard!
