About Mere

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, which serves light snacks and an array of delectable cocktails.
Monica's husband, David Galetti, is in charge of the Front of House at Mere, using his years of experience as an expert sommelier to create a wine selection along side his head Sommelier Sandra that perfectly balances with the seasonal dishes on offer.

I would like to thank the owners & staff at Mere for an excellent lunch. All four of our party commented on the quality of the food, friendliness of the staff and the "unfussiness" of the Mere.
Many thanks, Diolch yn fawr!!

A very memorable meal for a special occasion. Loved the atmosphere - perfect mood - not too loud but more importantly, not too quiet. The place didn't feel too precious and fancy but still had plenty of taste and class- just struck the perfect note. Didn't feel rushed, the time between each plate was well time for one to absorb one plate and in anticipation for the next plate. Great service, great recommendations for wines. We will be coming back for sure.

Some of the best food I’ve had (and I’ve been lucky to eat at some very renowned establishments). The atmosphere is relaxed but with an electric buzz. All the staff were friendly, knowledgable and attentive. It was good to see David being hands on and welcoming.

I found that the meal was good value for the quality and standard and everything was cooked to perfection.

The only small observation would be that some if the table are very close to each other. I did find I was getting nudged by the waiters bottom whilst he was serving the adjacent table.

We went for a treat on a theatre visit to London. The tasing menu with matching wines was superb the highlight being the venison. My wife did not like her desert much but it certainly did not spoil the occasion.

The food at Mere was outstanding. It was as delicate and beautiful to look at as much as it was delicious and rewarding to eat! It wasn't overwhelming in portion size either, which allowed us to experience one the most amazing deserts I've tasted for a long time. Stunning. The extraordinary thing though was that the restaurant was only a 1/3 full (Tuesday lunchtime), must have been the post Christmas lull. I'll definitely be going again very soon - it's my new favorite place to go.

I booked the Mere for my wife's 50 something birthday, from the moment we walked through the door the service is first class. The Mere has a nice ambiance and feel, all the staff are very attentive with out being over bearing and the décor very modern. Now the food, we decided on the tasting menu to give us a variety, which we can highly recommend. The presentation of each dish was stunning and it makes you appreciate the skill and preparation that goes into taking the raw ingredients, and turning them into mouth watering works of art.

A really nice touch to the evening was to get to meet Monica, she took the time to come and sit at all the dinners tables to chat and have photographs taken, which made the evening even more special.

We would recommend if you like fine dinning in a relaxed atmosphere served up with great food then Mere is the place to go

I took my niece, a huge Monica Galetti fan, as a birthday treat and it was a great evening. We enjoyed delicious food in stylish but cosy surroundings. Service was fantastic with great attention to detail and every single member of staff treated us like the most important people in the world. We will definitely be returning frequently.

 (London)·Dined on 30 December 2017

Myself and partner visited on the Saturday after Christmas at lunchtime for the tasting menu. It was very good value at £70 for 6 courses and £40 for the wine flight. Having been to Marcus at The Berkley several times, and being big Masterchef fans, we were excited to see what Monica had to offer! She didn’t disappoint with her creative food, of course the wine was amazing, as you’d expect from her husband who is a sommelier. The dining room itself is downstairs, very bright and open, there’s also a very smart bar upstairs where you can go for just a drink if you don’t want to eat. Overall we enjoyed the experience, however there were a few things that need tweaking in my opinion. When we were seated in the dining room we were left without a drink for around 10 minutes before our first course came out. This could have been avoided by taking our order as we sat with our drinks upstairs. We were given the menus, however no one took our food order. In fact throughout the meal we were often left wanting a drink. We were awash with sparkling water (which was free-nice touch) but I didn’t come to Mere to drinking water! We eat at a lot of these kind of places and I have to say the wine portions at Mere are minuscule. It looked like much less than 100ml per glass, so after a few sips with your meal your glass is empty. We also noticed the pourer favoured me to my partner, so he was given even less! I’d like to see this changed, if you’re paying £80 for wine per couple, I expect to get a decent amount. It’s not like they were overly expensive wines we were drinking either; we checked each one! Anyway, not wanting to sound like we have drink problems, the food is excellent, you’ll be repleat at the end of the 6 courses, but wines, you’ll want more. She’s bound to be given a star at some point, so my advice is go while it’s still very good value.

We had a family day out in London and thought we'd finish with a nice dinner as a treat.
We were not disappointed. My Husband, my children (21&18) and myself thought the food was wonderful, the service very good and the ambience very pleasant.
The sauces that accompanied the dishes were outstanding, with such a debth of flavour.
The tasting menu looked very tasty, but unfortunately my children don't eat cheese, so we opted for the a la carte menu.
We met Monica's husband as we were leaving and he was very charming and friendly when we thanked him.

 (Bath)·Dined on 27 December 2017

This was a dinner for four, celebrating a birthday, just after Christmas. It was expensive, but the food was outstandingly good, and really interesting, and the wine was also very good. I was particularly impressed that, when I asked the sommelier for advice about wines to go with our chosen meals, her recommendations were among the least expensive wines on the list. We took her advice, and they were very well chosen. I had not told the restaurant in advance that the occasion was a birthday, but i mentioned this on arrival. They produced a very nice, simple but memorable gesture at the end of the meal to mark the birthday. A good celebration, and I would be glad to go back, though probably for a celebration of some kind because of the price level - and also because the food is definitely very special.

Beautiful restaurant with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Fantastic front of house team , one is made to feel very welcome.
The food lived up to high expectations and was truly delicious, my chicken oysters pasta starter was full of flavour and my partner's beef heart and brisket a clever combination of flavours and textures.
Main courses of squab and venison were both faultless , and our desserts banana and baileys and caramel pear finished the meal perfectly.
So happy to have visited this restaurant and cannot wait to return .

My boyfriend and I went for a nice night out and had a fantastic time. We decided on the six course tasting menu with the wine pairings. There was plenty of food/wine and it was all delicious- the venison was exceptional!

The staff was attentive without being intrusive and made us feel welcome. Monica came around and stopped by every table to say a quick hello. She was lovely (I spoke about how welcoming and warm she was so excessively on the way home I needed to be reminded I didn't actually know her).

I dont go out for "fancy" dinners too often and when I have I've sometimes selected poorly and ended up somewhere stuffy where I feel out of place. For those of us looking for a nice night out the staff here makes you feel so comfortable and the quality of the food is on par with- or better than- all those stuffy places. Lastly, for a really exceptional fine dining experience it was incredibly reasonably priced.
