Upstairs lacked atmosphere but good for a party to take over. Downstairs more fun

Family supper. Good location and spleasant service. Food middling (chips were not very nice at all for example). Very expensive in the circumstances. Wouldnt go again as there is plenty of choice locally.

Perfect neighborhood restaurant--in the middle of Mayfair! It's both chic and friendly, not extravagantly expensive, nice mix of comfort food and well-judged creative dishes. Veggie friendly. And it's quiet so you can have a conversation with your friends. It's a gem.

A warm welcome upon arrival, and friendly efficient service. The menu offered a good selection of dishes and the food was delicious and well cooked. I’ve eaten here many times over the years and it has always been consistent. Great value for money in an informal and relaxed environment.

Exactly what we wanted - an opportunity to have a good meal withe old friends. We went upstairs which was much quieter. Food well judged; service helpful and friendly without being obtrusive..

Second time I've been to the little square. It's a gem. Small and cozy, but not too much so, great ambiance, lovely food. Best French onion soup too.

Lovely intimate place which is best on a week day as opposed to Friday /Saturday ONLY because its a snug place and you make friends with your neighbours very quickly. Food however very good... we had the cod and chips.. Food plentiful hot and tasty. Don't drink but wine list extensive and unobtrusive service. Go!

This is a new find, slightly quirky but with an excellent atmosphere and friendly service. The menu is imaginative, reasonably priced, offering just enough different choices, and the standard of cooking is everything it should be. It can be a little cramped for larger people like me, but the favourite table (not saying which) has additional space and was kept for me when asked for.
I'm looking forward to next time.

I have invited friends here several times and never been disappointed. The menu looks a little bland but the daily specials are reliably good. Probably not attractive to children.

A very pleasant evening at this small restaurant with a solid wine menu. The restaurant is quite intimate but that also means it is not noisy. Conveniently located near the Chesterfield Mayfair.

We were there two nights in a row. It's our favorite go to restaurant in London. Same chef for years along with the same manager. My wife had the coq au vin both nights and I had the Calves Liver the first night and the Duck the second night. All of the food came out hot and perfectly prepared.

We are fans of the little Square. When in London we stay at the Sheraton Park Lane and so a short walk. It is what I would term a first class neighborhood restaurant. No white table cloths but just great food and excellent service at a reasonable price for London. Comfortable relaxed environment. Nice menu and usually several specials.

What a find, such a cute restaurant in a beautiful setting in the middle of London. We went for lunch before going to cinema, I had the crab liguine and my frend had pan fried Salmon, the food was excellent and not too pricey considering the area. The staff were friendly and attentive but not overly. Overall, a very pleasant lunch experience and will definately be returning

The food and service was good. We were the only table inside the restaurant. It would have been better ambience if there were other diners.
Starters came within minutes so wasn’t sure if it was freshly made. Tasted ok though.

Liked the atmosphere. Great service! Very friendly and attentive staff. Good wine selection. The food was absalutely perfect and met with all the diner's unusual wishes and allergies. Starting with fresh and crispy baguette served with black olives and tapanade; Grilled Chicken Breast , sliced tomatoes and steamed brocolli -( off menu); Macaroni cheese; Rib eye steak with incredible sause; Oven roasted duck breast- all was delicious! Definitaley will come back!

A gorgeous little spot in the Mayfair hideaway of the Shepherd's Market area. Cozy and sweet, with a select market menu ensuring you are getting the best the season has to offer. I've brought friends from the US here , who now visit on their own when in London as they love it so. The space inside looks small from the outside, but it expands into another dining area upstairs. Recommended dishes I've had so far: tomato risotto, grilled seabass, grilled hake. Service is lovely and genuine....it makes the most impatient of us (me) take a deep breath and enjoy.

Great meal. The restaurant has a very intimate feel. My mum and aunt were please with the liver and mash potato! Sea bass and lemon posset were also a hit.
Only down side was someone sitting right outside the open window smoking.

My wife and I found The Little Square while visiting Shepherd Market and went back the same evening for dinner. We were greeted by Marta and she was our server. We had a fabulous time! The food was outstanding. This is a wonderful restaurant and we will visit The Little Square again on our next visit. Highly recommended!! We are very thankful we had the privilege to dine at The Little Square!
