MERE is husband and wife team, Monica and David Galetti's first restaurant.

Spread over two floors, this Fitzrovia-based restaurant is the brainchild of Monica Galetti who is featuring as a judge on the BBC's MasterChef The Professionals.

The restaurant itself serves traditional, simple dishes that have been delicately tweaked and modified to Galetti's liking. Nestled above the spacious basement restaurant is the bar, managed by our Mixologist Adam, which serves an array of delectable cocktails.
Monica's husband, David , is in charge of the Front of House at Mere with his Restaurant Manager Nicola, and using his years of experience as an expert sommelier to create a wine selection along side his head Sommelier Alexandre that perfectly balances with the seasonal dishes on offer.

We started with a couple of cocktails in the bar and then followed with the tasting menu. My wife chose the vegetarian menu and I had the non-vegetarian tasting menu. We decide to go for the wine pairing and the whole experience was terrific. The depth of flavour in some of the courses we were served was very impressive.
The ambience is good - lively, but not noisy and the service was as good as one would expect.

Exceptional service. Staff welcomed us back like old friends. There was no problem substituting a course on the menu for one I would prefer.
The Menu was exciting and well balanced. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Wish we lived nearer and could come more often.

Amazing lunch at Mere to remind us how great eating out can be and what we’ve been missing for the last 18 months. Staff were welcoming and professional. Set menu lunch was absolutely delicious with tantalising tastes and textures. Only very slight negative was cheese option for dessert which was disappointing as 2 of the 4 were English (Stinking Bishop and Cheddar) Perhaps we should have been told in advance what they were.

Ambiance was lovely. Did vegetarian tasting menu. Some hits some misses…. But all beautifully presented and prepared. Service was well meaning and polite, but very slow.. about 20 minutes between courses and with a 6 course tasting menu, we had to ask for courses 5 and 6 to come together and the entire meal was still nearly 31/2 hours: so would recommend to book only if you have a lot of time. In terms of value.. decent for food but would have liked to see more reasonable price options for wines by the glass.

Sadly we found our experience at Mere disappointing. Being pescatarian we opted for the A la Carte menu so that we could try some of the seafood dishes. Firstly my husband was told that the crab could be modified, frying the mushrooms in oil rather than beef fat. The waiter returned to inform us that this wasn't possible, no problem, any chance the scallops could be served without the black pudding? We were assured that this wouldn't be a problem but when it arrived there was black pudding in the ragout. It looked more like a case of not removing the black pudding rather than not putting it in. The waiter noticed the black pudding left on my husbands plate but didn't acknowledge this or apologize .
We were also hoping to order a glass of sweet wine to accompany our dessert but the dessert was delivered before the wine order was taken.
The food was very nice but the portions were small and not great value.

Fabulous as always. Took son and his wife for his 30th birthday. The food and service were spot on as usual. I absolutely love Mere. It’s definitely upper level price wise but it’s worth it.

Food wasn’t worth what they are charging. Crab starter had no flavour.
Mains where really nice though but not worth what they are charging.

Drinks well overpriced.

What saved the night was the excellent staff. The service was brilliant.

Great food in a relaxed and relaxing environment. We very much enjoyed the Vegetarian tasting Menu- portion sizes were just right and the food delicious. The staff were incredibly attentive without being overbearing. It was our first time 'Out Out' in several years and the experience rekindled the going out to eat spark! Thank you :-)

We had the tasting menu with wine pairings. The food was fantastic as was the wine pairings.
A highlight was the cheese mousse so different and tasted sublime.
Staff were attentive but not overbearing just sad Monica was not there!
