We enjoyed our lunch very much at this lovely hotel. Good food, lovely decor and very good staff. The reception staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. The cloakrooms are very impressive. Next time we are in London we are thinking of staying at the Hotel itself.

Food was really nice, but everything was rushed.
We were only halfway our aperitif and the starter was served. 3 min after finishing starters, main was served.
The restaurant was not even half full so don't have a clue why they rushed .

A lovely evening in a stylish restaurant however food portions were very small and hence not value for money. Wine list extensive but expensive. Rather hefty service charge applied. Would eat here again but for special occasion rather than everyday dining.

We had the 3 course dinner menu. The service was very pleasant and attentive, the table very comfortable.
The food was OK the flavours tended to be very good, the fish was on the overcooked side. Overall I feel that the food was a bit lackluster for a restaurant of this standard and price bracket.

Booked here in advance of a trip to London with my wife and two youngish children on the strength of ratings and reviews. Very pleasantly surprised. Really welcoming and very good food indeed. Not what I really expect from a hotel restaurant but as good as many places we have eaten with Michelin stars. The kids loved it too and were looked after as well as us. Highly recommended.

This is a really nice boutique hotel and the restaurant fits well with the rest of the hotel.
The ambiance was just right for a catch up with my girlfriend...small but cosy and we didn't feel rushed. The food was excellent, our plates were empty on every course and we were presently surprised when the bill came for the quality of food it was good value for money.
I'm DEFINITELY going back...think it will be sumptuous in the summer when the sun's out.

We chose the Sunday lunch 3 course meal. I particularly enjoyed mussels cooked with lemon grass,chilli and cream and the desert a caramel tart was superb. chocolates to finish. The main course, a typical Sunday lunch of roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, carrots and broccoli however was disappointing, it was just a bit basic and I expected better refined quality. My wife had roast lamb and although she likes her lamb medium rare, it was very rare in parts.
The service was however very good, we were virtually the only diners so the ambience was a little non existent.
I would however dine there again and the hotel itself looks like a hotel I will check out in the future.

We were two couples staying at The Arch Hotel for a weekend and were therefore lucky enough to sample the exceptional breakfasts, as well as an evening dinner. The service was friendly and prompt, we were seated in a booth for four, which meant we could chat easily, and the food was amazing. We will definitely be eating here again.

Located within the Arch Hotel, a very short walk from Marble Arch Underground station, this dining area has a warm and inviting ambiance. The greeting was very friendly and the service was attentive, timely and yet relaxed. We had booked the theatre menu (3 choices per course), which was good value at £21/head for three courses, yet be careful if you stray off that into the a la carte which becomes pricey, as were the drinks. A 12% service charge is added to the total bill. Bear in mind though that this is the West End of London! The main courses were a little small, although the starters and desserts were of a good size - all was well cooked and delicious. The restaurant was also very accommodating with regard to changes due to food intolerances and preferences. We very much enjoyed our visit and would certainly return - perhaps for the afternoon tea......

We booked here for Christmas Eve (2017) and we were not disappointed! We thoroughly enjoyed everything from leaving our coats with an attendant, to excellent waitstaff, to dining, to dessert and coffee. What a hidden gem! The place is small with the kitchen visible at one end of the dining room (a feature I tend to like). We were a party of 5 and everyone enjoyed their choices. I can't think of anything we didn't enjoy here.

I made a reservation for a late lunch prior to a visit to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.
It was Christmas Eve and also my wife's birthday.
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel 'special' and were shown to our table which was in a cosy circular alcove with a thin veil for privacy, very romantic!
The food was divine and the service was excellent. We were given a complementary glass of champagne to celebrate the occasion and my wife's dessert plate was specially decorated by the pastry chef, a lovely touch.
The whole experience was a great start to Christmas and I would not hesitate to recommend
Hunter 486 to anyone for a great dining experience.

Lunch with friends at Hunter 486, which is within the Arch Hotel near Marble Arch. Very wide and varied menu choice. The venison was excellent. Service was attentive and efficient. The atmosphere was a little quiet, but probably to be expected in the afternoon. Still, ideal for conversation with friends. Would recommend if you want a restaurant north of Oxford Street near Marble Arch.
