    We dined at Wild Honey to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. We chose the £95, 3 course menu in the evening but were given the choice to select from the cheaper, pre-theatre menu as we had arrived at 6.30 pm. The choices available on both menus were fine, and we were glad that we opted for the main menu. The food was delicious. Well presented and very tasty. We enjoyed discreet but friendly and attentive service from the wait staff and the sommelier. A nice bottle of moderately priced wine followed a couple of cocktails enjoyed by my wife and son. My dinner ended with a very generous cheese plate which was very tasty, while my guests had chocolate souffle which they both enjoyed. We skipped coffee in favour of after-dinner drinks elsewhere and left with a bill a shaade under £500 for a splendid evening.

    We used to go to Wild Honey in its old location, a cosy, wood panelled dining room in the heart of Mayfair. It was a special place. The new location in the Sofitel, Pall Mall is not. That’s not to say it is unpleasant, but it is generic and lacks intimacy. As before, the food was largely excellent, although one of our steaks had a thick line of gristle running through it, which was a shame. Music is pumped out into the dining room at a volume bordering on too much, and the music itself, whilst sometimes fun, is not conducive to a fine dining experience, which is something I always considered Wild Honey to be. Service on arrival was non existent. We wanted to have a cocktail at the bar before being seated, but had to wait about 15-20 minutes before a waiter stopped to ask us for our order. This despite many staff walking past our table and the bar being empty. In contrast, our servers at the table were attentive and friendly. Overall, Wild Honey no longer feels like Wild Honey. The food is still great, but the dining experience is generic and disappointing. The lack of custom on a Friday night suggests others have realised this before we did. It would be difficult to justify going back, despite the talented chef. At the price point, it needs to do everything to a higher a standard.

    Fantastic experience. I do not know any restaurant that has such an amazing talent for cooking any meat to perfection each and every time.

    I truly think the team has created something really special here. A faultless dining experience where you’re made to feel truly welcome and special. There are a number of people who deserve special mention but I don’t know all their names. Certainly Vicky was a super star. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

    We’d been before in March 2022 and had a lovely time. This time everything was okay, nothing to complain about but it was fairly standard stuff.

    Went here before the theater. They had a fantastic pre-theater menu. Cocktails were delicious, presentation was lovely. Service was very attentive. Would highly recommend!
