Located on Chelsea’s iconic Fulham Road, PJ's Bar & Grill has been a continuous favourite amongst trendy locals for years. The name Polo Joe’s along with its polo-themed interior and the handsomely suspended wooden aeroplane propeller above the bar is a tribute to owner Brian Stein's favourite sport and creates a unique and welcoming setting for relaxed meals with family and friends. Quality and seasonal British ingredients are at the fore-front of the menu and the timeless dishes served here feature an excellent selection of Fresh Fish and Seafood, Prime cuts of Beef sourced from the Scottish Highlands and modern twists on quintessentially British classics. The restaurant has quickly become the place to be for Weekend brunch in this affluent borough – Eggs Benedict, French Toast and Truffled Scrambled Eggs are just some of the delectable treats on offer.

Food and service very good.
Steak Tartare would benefit from more spice or at least served with Tabasco!

A really nice balance between lively and relaxing.

Fantastic food, with attentive staff and a great atmosphere has kept my coming back to PJ's. It is on the pricey side, but the portions are generous and the quality superb.

Wonderful lunch for a family of 9. Would have given 5 stars as most of the food was delicious - but the chicken Kiev was dry and over cooked. Despite complaining no discount was offered for it. However everything else was delicious and apart from that one complaint service excellent . We will be back! Although clearly not ordering chicken Kiev!

Good traditional food and love the location. Great spot for brunch with friends/family.
Not amazing service, sometimes a bit slow in understanding the needs or not keeping and eye on the table so then we had to look for them or ask more than once for something.
But overall it’s great, I would definitely recommend and come back!

PJs bar and grill was a beautiful restaurant. The candle lit atmosphere and music made us want to spend all night eating and drinking there. The food was delicious, one of the best steaks I've ever had and finished off with a gorgeous cheese board. Enjoyable atmosphere, and great value for money.

PJ's bar and grill has been here for decades and I remember in my youth meeting here for cocktails or brunch. Comfortingly, nothing much has changed. We had a decent lunch - burratina and calamari followed by an excellent burger and Seabass. What really stood out (or should I say who) was our waiter Fabio who was efficient, attentive and amusing to boot. Well done Fabio, you were fab!

PJs is an institution and it is a short walk down from Brompton Cross and other fine places like Bibendum and the Hour Glass pub (Independent with great beers and wines and now fine food) and Aubaine.. all of these super places a short walk from South Kensington Tube Station

The reality is that PJs evokes an era of the expansion of the London Bar and Restaurant scene as it was improving many years ago.... and in no way is this reliable local icon left behind.. The standards are as you would expect, not self indulgent but reliable and well thought through menu, great steak tartare, salmon etc ,, it is somewhere to enjoy arriving early and pausing at the Bar..sneaking in a honeyed chipolata before your companions arrive .. staff are delightful and thoughtful.. Service calmly classy.. they really look after you here with an assured and experienced yet modern peer level of borderline cheeky engagement.. you will enjoy it and that's the point!!!

Don't anticipate the elevated expectations of the epicurean gourmand, but equally this is way above high street. In many ways PJs showed the way years ago and it is definitely not time yet to don the garb and retire to bed,,. long may PJs continue to host in a way that means you can go regularly or sporadically and yet aye welcomed as if a special occasion every time.. Life is short and some of it can reasonably be spent here.. and if you cant get in do go up the road to the other hostelries,, great area

I have been a regular customer at PJ's over the years but the most recent visit was disappointing. My guest and I ordered truffle pasta and there was, quite clearly, absolutely no trace of anything even remotely like truffle flavour. The price was £20 but there wasn't even any truffle oil on the pasta let alone a real shaving of truffle. There is no excuse for this. And at £20 a plate this must be the most profitable dish on the menu given that the cost of the ingredients - if you don't put any truffles in it - cannot be more than £2 a portion, if that. Very disappointing.

Mediocre food and below par service - we had to ask the server for our wine, sides - pretty much everything. We ordered the chateaubriand and the server brought two racks - I don’t know what went down in the kitchen but two orders were placed for two people, the server didn’t realise it was a meal to share! Overpriced for what it is - a shame as the ambiance is lovely. Could do much better.

La comida no era nada del otro mundo e incluso hubieron platos que no estaban muy buenos como el risoto. Otros si que estaban buenos como la pasta con trufa y pollo masala pero no había un estilo concreto de comida.

El precio fue caro, de hecho nos incluyó la propina que era. 8 libras por persona.

Birthday lunch. We appreciated the free complimentary Prosecco.

Our waiter was charming and efficient however service was a bit slow between 1st and 2nd courses. Food was excellent

We had a corner window table which was draughty and a bit chilly. More draft proofing required especially in winter.

However a very enjoyable lunch

It’s so sad to have to write a bad review of s place I used to frequent so often . The food was so bad !!! When we entered at at 9 pm on a Thursday night , the place was totally empty when it used to be buzzing just a year ago . I think they have changed the Chef and there is new management but they really need to up their game if they want to keep ppl coming back . I ordered a chicken Kiev which was so overfried to the point of being burnt , it was chewy and the filling had zero flavour !!! The crab cake as a starter lacked taste and was served with a tasteless avocado spread .. really disappointing . Won’t be going back anytime soon .

This was our second visit, the first having been for weekend brunch. We enjoyed the brunch far more, the food being much better. The food which we had for dinner lacked flavour. Will go back, but for brunch!
