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.

Lovely, warm welcome from the front-of-house.
Fantastic Virgin Mary, olive bites and taster soup of day.
Fresh seasonal ingredient. Fantastic combination of produce and textures that made every mouthful happy.
Thank you for a wonderful experience Picture Marylebone.

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.
