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.

This is a gem of a small neighborhood restaurant, with friendly service, fresh home style cooking and extremely reasonable prices for the Mayfair neighborhood.

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.

The food wasn’t good and I had a stomachache afterwards. The waitress tried to cheat with a bill.

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!

Very small, bistro sized restaurant in secluded but busy location. Tables inside and out. French style specials consistently good; tourist menu uninspired and less good value. Nice choice of wine but expensive. Booking essential.

A very inviting bistro with a distinctive French feel. The food was great and reasonably prices by Mayfair standards. The staff were excellent, but not convinced that 60s US rock-and-roll was the ideal accompanying soundtrack for the venue (although I quite liked it). The duck was splendid, and the French’s onion soup was a perfectly decent starter.
