Picture offers a 6 course tasting menu for £45, which compares very favourably to its a la carte menu.

The food was excellent with all courses memorable. One of our party was a chef and she was impressed.

Wonderful evening wonderful food.

Picture Marylebone is a real find. I would give it 6 stars for value. Very refined food, very rich and filling, though smaller plates. The mushroom and slow cooked egg 'tart' was exceptional and absolutely a Michelin star dish. The tasting menu is such good value. Especially at lunch. Great, friendly service too. Highly recommended.

Personal thoughts on experience - 8.5/10
Generally, all cooking methods executed without fault. No meats were dry; neither under nor overcooked. Some interesting twists were attempted, and pulled off, but were not spectacular. Not quite out there enough perhaps, but that is my personal preference for the hints of flavours to be quite apparent. The components of the dish sometimes did complement each other, but not always in harmony, and there was a feeling that they were quite often different segments of a dish, rather than one collective dish.

Happened to go on a beautiful day, very sunny, with the light streaming in through the window to our table, which I certainly enjoyed, and made the experience better!

Tom, one of the co-founders of Picture, was there on the day, and he was very cheerful, and a bit cheekily humourous, which made the experience more enjoyable for me!

Recommended if
If you are looking to try some interesting twists on British cuisine, at a pretty relaxed atmosphere.

My husband and I booked a table without knowing anything about the restaurant and we were both very nicely surprised indeed! The ambience is simple but elegant, the service was well-paced and the staff personable. The food was spectacular, every mouthful was delicious and there are little added extras (free bread & butter, and an amuse bouche) that really set the tone for a wonderful dining experience.

Go for the set menu which is extremely good value, but don't be frightened of going a la carte. Excellent modern British food in an airy setting close to Marylebone High Street, so you can do you book, cheese and meat shopping before of after lunch. An extraordinary good Portuguese Pinot on the wine list and a number of wines by the glass and the 500ml carafe. GM Tom is as always very welcoming.

The only negative aspect of this excellent restaurant was the fact that they did not allow me to take home the leftovers. This was rather shocking, as I had already paid for the meal. This wasn’t the fault of the service staff. They were great. Our waitress told us she had to go ask if we could take the leftovers; this was clearly a poor decision made higher up.

So remember only to order as much as you can eat while sitting there. Because the rest of that amazing food will be thrown away - a complete waste and so unfortunate. Particularly after it had been made to order and paid for.

Highly recommend!
Have now been to Picture twice and had the tasting menu and find it a thoroughly pleasant experience all round. The food is fresh, refined, well balanced, and well cooked for the price point. The fixtures and fittings are very basic but in a good way. Likewise the service is simple but not fussy so all in all it's a very relaxing and friendly experience.
I've recommended the place to a few friends and all like it.
The 4's would have been 4.5s if it was allowed.

We chose the tasting menus both veg and normal and we both enjoyed the range and mix of food flavours. I felt that the wine pairing should have been explained to us with a breakdown stressing only one glass of red being offered. After explaining this to waitress we got the silent treatment good food timely delivered but never asked further if we were enjoying it.

The tasting menu is excellent value for money, - have eaten it on a number of occasions. Some of my friends requested various changes to the food, but they were easily incorporated without any issues. The waitress had a good sense of humour, - overall, this is one of the standard go-to places for our business dinners. Love the starters.

Excellent food and service. Our second visit and the food was just as delicious as the first. Decor is fairly plain, but that is not a bad thing. Not as noisy as many restaurants seem to be these days and the service was efficient and friendly. Good value for money all round!

Won't ever get bored of eating at either of the Picture Restaurants. Food, Wine, Service, Atmosphere always on point! Inventive yet simple elegant food. Every mouthful a joy. Nice tight wine list with great options at either end. Lunchtime deal on Open Table is an absolute steal, but worth a visit at anytime as always good value. Look forward to the next time!

An enjoyable and intriguing experience. I wasn't terrible enamoured by the sweetbreads possible this wasn't helped by the waiters initial description, and won't be rushing back mainly because I don't feel the menu choices are wide enough to warrant another visit anytime soon but I would recommend others to try it.

We had an excellent meal from the warm welcome on arrival on a cold and icy day and throughout Rutherford varied and delicious courses. To be recommended is the Brandade which looks wonderful and tastes as good as it looks - but it is only one amongst a plethora or inventive and mouthwatering dishes created in this talent filled kitchen.
