Great food, good service, and perfect ambiance. Picture isn't the cheapest option on the Marylebone block, but it's well worth a visit.

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.

Portions were very small and not big on flavour. Ravioli was the most flavourful plate at £11 for 3 bite size bits. £15 for 28 year old beef was good but I can get 5x more steak for less money at Flat Iron in Soho or Orange Elephant in Chelsea. So it cannot be that the neighbourhood of Marylebone can charge more than Chelsea. £13 for the cod was a waste of money. £11 for the cured salmon was less than two pinky finger length and width of a bite. Complete waste of money. Too expensive for too little quantity and trying to look pretty food. Do NOT order the side dishes because they increased our lunch time bill by 25%.

interesting new flavour combinations based on traditional ingredients that mostly worked very well, served with professional elegance, and without going over the top or being too pretentious. The desserts were the only real disappointment, being rather dull.

My first visit to Picture, Marylebone, but not the last, Very impressed with the food and service.
The Opentable offer of 3 courses for £20 was good value. With a bottle of wine, the bill for 2 was £70.00. Highly recommended.

Three courses from the a la carte menu at "Picture Marylebone", for £20, represented outstanding value -- especially as the food was so delicious. I opted for the Slow-Cooked Hen's Egg, Hake Brandade, and Dark Chocolate Mousse: all involved intricate yet complementary combinations of flavours and were exquisite. The portions weren't big, but for many at lunch-time that counts as a plus. The restaurant also performed strongly in terms of service. As a relatively new offshoot of "Picture Fitzrovia", this branch deserves more patronage that it appears to be enjoying. A firm recommend -- and I'll be returning in just over one week.

Food is of good quality and creative but service and ambiance are disappointing. Employees touch the plates in front of clients as they are sent up the lift from kitchen downstairs. They need to polish up.

Having read various positive reviews online, we were interested in trying out "picture" in Marylebone. It was slightly disappointing as an experience. Perhaps we were just not in the right mood...or perhaps our expectations were too high. Whilst clearly trying, the restaurant itself is very, very basic in décor and design. Not necessarily fatal to one's dining experience if the food makes up for it, but on the food front we were also slightly disappointed. Our experience left us thinking that "Picture" is better than a lot of middling-level local neighbourhood restaurants in the UK, but falling short of its competitors in the creative, high quality London dining category.

Taster menu went from strength to strength. Delicious food served in interesting combinations by friendly staff. Only quibble is that dining room is quite spartan and the tables very small even for two people, let alone when two twos are combined to seat five people. Expensive.

Really excellent front of house and service.
The food was very good without being outstanding (I would have happily ordered everything on the menu but nothing demanded that I order it).
Either the portions were on the small side given the price, or the prices were on the high side given the portion size.
And it could do with something to soften the acoustics.
But overall, very good. Will go back again.
