Ormer Mayfair is overseen by celebrated Michelin star chef Shaun Rankin.

This stunning art deco inspired interior of the restaurant, located in the heart of Mayfair, is awash with 1930s glamour with leather banquette seating, dark oak wall panelling and hand-crafted chevron glass screens. Inspiration for the food comes from Rankin’s acclaimed Jersey restaurant that has held a Michelin star since 2013.

Private Dining

There is no better way to experience Shaun Rankin’s exclusive menu at Ormer Mayfair than to book one of the unique private dining rooms. The fresh taste of Jersey brought to the heart of Mayfair. The Half Moon Suite is our intimate 12 cover private room. The Clarges Suite seats up to 22 guests.

Our first visit was a great success and we shall certainly go there again when we are next in London. I think it is probably more attuned to small parties - say foursomes - rather than larger groups? very interesting menu.

Service was impeccable and worked like a well oiled machine. We went with the tasting menu and classic wine flight and added the options of lobster ravioli and cheese (supplemented with a Sauternes Grand Cru). The ravioli, rabbit and venison were all other worldly. The sommelier recommendations included Bulgarian, Hungarian, and French wines - all superb and precisely complimentary to the dish. Total time at table was 3 hours and 45 minutes and this was perfect to enjoy a meal at a leisurely but not sloth like pace. We will definitely go again, possibly the best meal we have ever had.

NYE dinner at the Ormer, with a pre-set festive menu. Only good surprises in the plates - tasty, inventive, and delicate food. Service was impeccable, from beginning to end - lot of attention (but not too much), smiles and simplicity.

Special attention to the very discrete, professional sommelier - good advice on a very nice white wine from Chile for the night - and great service (glasses were never empty - wine or water - without asking or even looking. It could look normal, I know....but it becomes more and more difficult to get such quality service, even in most of the good places).

Great experience overall - quality dinner, top-notch service. Highly recommended

Food was generally very good, save for a few complaints about the lobster. The main course, however, was ridiculously tiny. Very tasty short rib, but just a tiny dish more suited to a starter and not substantial enough as a main course. The white Mazzei wine that was paired with the menu was not very good so we ordered a different white from the wine list for the second bottle of white. The red Mazzei wine was fine.

The service was ok, if a little brusque at times. The restaurant does however adopt the central London restaurant modern custom of bringing out still and sparkling water even if not requested, and continuing to open new bottles of water and refill glasses at every opportunity. I know that is how they make their money, bottles of water were charged at £4.50 and must cost them no more than 50p, and that it is up to the customer to put a stop to it, however it happened without my being asked and it would have then looked cheap to my guests to have sent it back and asked for tap water instead. But it did grate a little. Especially when the bill ended up at close to £900 for a table of 8 on a set menu with wine included. That said, other restaurants in the area can charge up to £7 per bottle of water, so £4.50 is certainly not as outrageous as some places.

Overall though my guests left very happy with the evening, with generally high praise for the standard of cooking, so it would be wrong not to recognise that. And the decor of the hotel is high end, with a very pleasant bar upstairs off the lobby. I would return for drinks or a business meal, with the caveats noted above.

The thing with the Ormer is that it's always fantastic as the chef is so creative, inventive and knows how to add a little Caribbean joy to his food. It's so special but I don't want everyone going - there has to be a place for me when I next come from Brussels

Incredible tasting menu.
Wonderful food. Exceptional customer service. Beautiful setting.
Generally a very quiet restaurant. There was a 20+ party adjacent to us which was very noisy. I have eaten in Ormer before and never had this problem. Staff did apologise for the noise - it was clear this rarely happens.
Overall, a wonderful meal and dining experience. Worth every penny.

Superb food in a glamorous ambience - informative and attentive interaction with the staff with whom we were able to converse - no bland "have a nice day" or "was everything OK" comments when every course finished with empty plates! The highlight of highlights was the so called "apple crumble" - try it and be amazed!
