Booked a table for lunch with friends the first weekend restaurants were able to open for outdoor dining post lockdown. It was a sunny day and we enjoyed a marvellous lunch outside facing Pall Mall. The food was delicious and the service excellent, and we weren't rushed off our table so stayed there for hours drinking cocktails and catching up. Quite pricey but for a celebratory occasion it's worth the spend.

A mid week lunchtime outing. With the pending change in Tier level we felt it's now or maybe next year. The following the day the place was forced to close. A spacious room, tables well spaced ... ideal under Covid rules. We opted for the Festive menu, five courses: pate, fish, venison, mouth cleanser and a chocolate melt in the middle pudding. The food was well presented, more than adequate portion sizes, staff very friendly. A very enjoyable lunch.

Ambience and decor are superb, as are the staff; faultless.

The food was a slight let down, hoping it was a one-off or issues with supplies during covid.

the starter Terrine (liver pate was served) was not the best. Needed more Cornichons to disguise the flavour.

The ‘mini dish’ that comes with the main didn’t match /go with the flavours of the main.
I had mackerel, which had a light lemony gravy jus, which was nice. But the beetroot and goats cheese (mini dish) that came with it did not complement the flavours, and actually made it worse, as the aftertastes of both really didn’t go with each other.

Dessert was the custard tart, which was more like a soft cheesecake; not offensive, but not the best.

The perfect place to take my parents to enjoy a rare moment of restaurant dining in 2020. Wooing them away from the River Cafe for a birthday lunch. The menu was the very best of seasonal ingredients- smoked eel, Venison, partridge and pumpkin. A really dramatic dining room with high ceilings and arched windows overlooking Pall Mall. Of course we came for Wild Honey’s name and delighted its incredible reputation lives on here. Only criticism is the awful background music which might have been to make the room feel busier due to social distancing - it’s not needed.

Our first visit to Wild Honey. We had read good reviews and thought we would try it for a Saturday lunch. We arrived very late for our booked table but we were very lucky as due to Covid etc , it was very quiet and the staff very accommodating. The food was absolutely delicious and service was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely return.

Food was delicious although my husband doesn’t like fish, rabbit or lamb so he was disappointed with the menu.
It was an anniversary meal and we were given a lovely piece of cake with happy anniversary written on which was a lovely touch.

Deco is good, but food not really up to the standard of a good French restaurant, no kids menu, and the set menu is too simple, nor much variety and quality below standard

Fantastic!
We had the most wonderful experience at Wild Honey. The food was incredible, the service was impeccable, the ambiance was perfect and the décor was beautiful with deep plus green banquettes and complimentary lighting.

We cannot recommend Wild Honey enough and will most definitely be going back.

Thank you Wild Honey for such a truly magnificent lunch.

Fabulous gem of a restaurant in central London.
We sampled the three courses plus a glass of bubbles and although the menu was limited, there was enough of a choice to enjoy.
The food was cooked and presented beautifully.
Custard tart was notable!

The starter was beautiful however the main cause was whole roasted bird which value for money was great but very difficult to eat and slightly under cooked. Dessert was a fantastic raspberry sorbet which was a great palate cleanser

Great food and excellent service. The room has a nice vibe (noting how big it is) and the staff really are that perfect balance of friendly / attentive and knowledgeable, without being at all stuffy. It was great to spot Anthony Demetre too!

Me & my friend visited the Wild Honey on Saturday, the 3rd of October. Even though we were not happy with the table selection at first, the ambiance, service, and food have made the night truly enjoyable. We had starters and mains paired with champagne. The food was of outstanding quality and taste. We ended the night in a good mood, and will definitely return back very soon. A cozy and sophisticated place to spend a quality Saturday evening.

Dishes of superb quality in a lovely space, but with friendly, un-stuffy service. Well worth the trip. The bouillabaisse was sublime, and better than any I’ve had in Marseille.
