A nice upmarket American style steak restaurant with impeccable service! A little on the expensive side, but well worth a visit - ideal for a special occasions or meal our with clients/work.

6:45 reservation, arrived and was seated at 6:40. Ordered dinner at 7:00 and had to ask for our salad course at 9:00. Got multiple excuses from the waitstaff and manager.

The evening was a huge disappointment!!! Would have easily accepted “we made a mistake” but the freelance
excuses made it worse.

Never again!!!!

Great steak restaurant and the starters in particular are beautifully presented.
4 dined and we all tried a different steak , all were excellent and a good size.
The ambience was a little flat in our opinion but probably because it was a Monday.
Our only gripe was the wine is overpriced even for a restaurant of this class and was distinctly average. A restaurant of this type should have an excellent house wine at no more than £40.

It was my husband’s 60th birthday Celebration lunch with the family, the attention to detail is 2nd to none. We were made to feel like we were the only diners there!

We had a lovely meal on Saturday to celebrate a 30th birthday. With an average spend of £120.00 for a party of seven, was a bit on the pricey side but everyone enjoyed their meal. They did forget to bring a few things to the table and needed prompting but it was a busy Saturday. The restaurant looked lovely with the Xmas decorations, very festive.

This is the way to cook steaks and have steaks in the country. Of course they are from the States so that is to be expected. We have the Tomahawk cooked to perfection. One of our favourite. Keep it up

Although the restaurant was inviting, the service good and swift, and the portions sufficient and tasty, the menu was limited. I won't book again for a restaurant that does not offer the range of menus available on the website.

If you want to try some steak which is a cut above the rest (no pun intended), then this is the place to go. Relaxed atmosphere but great service and amazing food. Our waiter was clued up about the menu but not too pushy, and was kind enough to give my partner a complimentary dessert as it was his birthday. Will definitely be visiting again.

Thanksgiving meal was a delight.Service both at the bar and at table was superb.We were looked after and the staff (particularly our waiter Robert) met all our needs efficiently and with little waiting.
We had a lovely table with plenty of room.The food was very good and the cocktails we’re great.
We have been here many times before and once again we had a great night.

Our waiter did not know much about the menu but we gave him the benefit of doubt by assuming he was new to the position. For Mayfair, the quality of the cocktails was subpar. The worst part of the meal was the vegetable selection. How any cook worth their weight could ruin something as simple as carrots is beyond me; and the chef who thought pouring a can of chopped tomatoes over the lovely green beans should probably seek success in another industry. The restaurant in itself, however, is beautiful and the steak (for which its known) was perfect.

The food was well flavoured but warm at best. Service was inexperienced. No barman was available to pour 2 glasses of champagne and we had to wait until our starters were served to have them instead of asarrival drinks. We had split pea soup, turkey, pumpkin pie.

Excellent service, very accommodating staff(we were at our table far longer than the two hours we were allocated!!) and, of course, very good food. The meat was delicious, we shared tomahawk steaks, and the creamed spinach, in particular was lovely.

The food was fantastic. Taste great couldn’t get better steak.
Service was another matter. Asked 3 times for bread as I’m a diabetic and my sugar was getting low ,
I was feeling shaky.after a long wait it finally came.
The waiter took our orders. We had cocktail and soft drinks ,wine and champagne.
Everything came except the cocktail, again 3 times of asking eventually came. We we’re giving the cocktail free.
Food.... came with sides but no salad!,,,, eventually it came halfway through and then it wasn’t a Waldorf salad. By then we had given up and just eat it.

Sorry to say what was wrong, but it is best to know.
We will try again,perhaps after Christmas.

Fantastic steak, my mothers fish was great and fathers lamb shank was one of the best he'd ever had. They did bring us the wrong bottle of wine which cost a fortune, mother had to order her chips twice, they didn't bring us our coffee with dessert, then told us they would take if off the bill but didn't.

Overall a mixed bag, great food but confused service where you'd be best to check what they've written down against what you actually ordered.

Incredible food and well-sized portions but slow, curt and occasionally rude service from staff that night. Unfortunate aspect of an otherwise lovely restaurant that put a damper on a birthday meal.

Perfect steaks and lovely selection of wine.
Went here for the other half’s birthday.
We ordered oysters for starters which was delicious. Saw the seafood platter being served and looked amazing too.
Bill came to around £130 half dozen oysters, two steak and fries and a bottle wine

Excellent!! I went with 8 friends and had a great time. We brought our table forward by half an hour and that wasn't a problem at all, from the gent on the door that welcomed us through to our server, everyone was absolutely lovely, very welcoming, seriously knowledgeable and the entire experience was fantastic. The setting is fantastic, absolutely beautiful and the food is GREAT, I regularly eat in Hawksmoor etc and without doubt will be coming back to Smith & Wollensky as its as good (better even) than anything else I've experienced.
