Texture is an award winning Michelin starred modern European restaurant and champagne bar that was established in 2007.
Texture's style of cuisine is modern European with Scandinavian influences, and it focuses on combining and emphasising different consistencies, using British produce that is sourced from both the earth and sea combined with ingredients from Sverrisson's native Iceland – a concept to savour.
Texture Restaurant and Champagne Bar is housed in a beautifully restored Georgian building on Portman Square in the heart of Mayfair, and just minutes from Oxford Street. The main dining room seats 50 guests. Additionally, we can provide a private dining room, which is ideal for smaller parties who seek an experience of refined dining in privacy.

We had a table for two, 6pm, on a Friday (straight from work). We had cocktails in the bar area, followed by the fish tasting menu in the restaurant.
From the very moment that we set foot inside, we were treated like royalty. The entire experience was amazing: the staff; the cocktails; the table; and the food.
We will most certainly be back soon, and would highly recommend a visit to Texture. Wow. Congratulations to all involved.

My third visit to texture did not disappoint. It was an anniversary and the team made us feel very special & welcome. The food, presentation and service were all impeccable. We dined on the set lunch this time (previously the tasting menus) which was excellent value - 3 courses plus an appetiser, breads, crisps and petit fours. The lamb was the highlight for me - shoulder cooked for 16 hours at 60 degrees made it taste like prime loin. My favorite restaurant in London. Well done all!

I was treating myself to a lunch alone for my birthday. Food was passable but not special. Service was SLOW and pretty negligent of the lone diner.
Not a top-class dining experience, at any price. I had someone else’s still water poured in my sparkling, waited more than TWENTY minutes for the bill even after asking for it twice. Just not great, slow service, no music, everything served at room-temp. Unsatisfying meal.

Everything about this restaurant is worthy of praise.... it is our favourite restaurant by far of the many good restaurants in London that we’ve enjoyed over a number of years. Both lunch and dinner are very special. The food is faultless , the staff are very friendly and helpful and make the meal memorable. We have eaten here many times and will definitely be back.

Went for our anniversary! Impeccable, friendly service. Esquite food with nice little "mini-courses" in between. It's not cheap but it's a very special restaurant. A wonderful restaurant for a special occasion!

After a great experience in this restaurant a few months ago, we were longing to dine there again. Unfortunately, it was not so successful as the first time: the main dish of the 3-course lunch menu (Cornish Pollock with avocado and quinoa) was very good, the starter was good, even though the main ingredient is definitely not our favourite fish, the dessert was disappointing. The service, although very professional, was way too slow, so we left after 1h45 without having coffee and petit fours (we were kindly asked to wait for them after paying the bill, but after staying for a while we really had to flee for an afternoon commitment).

Was looking for something special yet vegan for our anniversary dinner... and there it was! Vegan Tasting Menu at Texture. Chef Aggi and his team showed exactly why they are a Michelin Star restaurant!! Superb service from every person on the team and the meal was incredible. If you’re vegan, Texture MUST go on your “don’t miss” list.

The menu is imaginative; the ingredients well-sourced and documented. The service is punctilious, yet friendly, a balance hard to achieve. Eating in good restaurants is just not only about the food; it is about the performance, consisting of service, surroundings, and the pulchritude of the presentation. Well, in addition to all that, the food was truly excellent. All in all, the meal was worth the price. However, for most of us, this is not a price range we would eat in on a weekly or even monthly basis, but definitely for a special occasion.
The downside? Well, the tables for two are definitely not the most comfortable. The table footing consists of a circular mesh frame which takes up all the space where you would normally put your feet, forcing you to put your legs to either side - uncomfortable, and I would think, possibly embarrassing for women in short skirts, were it not for the mesh frame at least providing some shelter.
Another item that would be remiss not to mention - the vegetarian food was excellent, but could not a proper menu be created, so that we would not be stuck with only a £20 option for a starter?

We had the vegan tasting menu, with accompanying wines. It was fantastic. Never had such varied and tasty vegan food. The sommelier, Alan, picked an incredibly fine selection of complementary wines. The pairings were delicious and unexpected.
It’s an arm and a leg from your wallet, but we’ll worth it for a special night out. Thanks to all at Texture.

Fantastic experience - we went here for a birthday, and had the tasting menu. The staff were incredibly attentive (especially the sommelier, who explained all of the wines), and the food was exceptional. We asked for a wine list afterwards, and they created a bespoke menu for us to take away on the spot! Lovely place for a special occasion.

I booked that place for Friday evening with a friend. We arrived first (nobody was in restaurant) and we were sited in the corner of the room on the bench, behind the wall so could not enjoy fully the beautiful decor of the room. I though that first gust you offering the best places or ask client where they would like to sit, especially as the room was not even half full when we were leaving. Secondly, the service of the men in red suspenders and black shirt was very poor. Interrupting few times conversation, spinning the plate and generally annoying person. Overall food interesting - very experimental. The scallops for starter had not enough soup. The cod was very intriguing experience. Overall the restaurant has got great atmosphere and nice food.

Our first time at texture but definitely not the last.

Delicious, thoughtful food prepared and presented by highly engaging, attentive staff who sport matching red shoes.

We had the seafood tasting menu. The wine pairings were spot on, both prestige wines and the champagne, and very reasonable. I'd argue the champagne worked best but not 100%. Will just have to check again!

We're not verge or vegan but they have a wide range of options which I'm sure will also be fab and show the produce off to its' best both in terms of taste and 'texture'.

Thoroughly recommend the place.

Food good but desserts very dissappointing. Another table's bill received twice before correct bill received. Credit card machine then went down and whole process was onerous and really put a damper on the experience esepcially when 15% service charge is levied. No complimentary drinks etc.. offered during wait to sort the bill and pay out. Couple of tubs of Skyr yoghurt given but just not a practical gift when no carrier etc... offered with the comp.

Texture is a wonderfully refreshing place to treat yourself to a beautiful and tastefully crafted meal. Combining a classic London room of high ceilings and Georgian-style wall panels with the clean, stylish lines of Nordic-chic furniture and pale birch decor, the venue has a contemporary and yet traditional feel. The same goes for the food. Served on heavy, glazed pates, slightly unevenly shaped to give the genuine feeling of something carved out of the bedrock, the food is delicately presented and, although very modern in its technique and presentation, nods towards ancient Nordic and Icelandic origins. Combining wonderfully seasonal cuts of locally sourced meat, I think the magic lies in the the fish on offer. Perfectly cooked and accompanied by unusual , oft forgotten but genius flavours like sorrel, you are transported to the cold, snowy expanses of the black lava beaches of Iceland. The wine selection is quite vast and will cover most tastes. If in doubt, there are a couple of very knowledgeable sommeliers to advise you. The service is friendly and relaxed, without loosing the feeling of a classy, higher end establishment. On both occasions I have visited the restaurant, I have been there for a lunch and both times I have left with a smile and feeling very well looked after and utterly full of exceptional food.

Given the price and reputation the food was not to the standard you might expect and the atmosphere is a little tired. If the bill had been about 30-40% cheaper I would have been happy but I don't think I would return.
