The Delaunay Ratings and Reviews
I booked The Delaunay fairly last minute for my wife's birthday, and I wasn't disappointed. The ambience, service and food were fantastic. I was concerned that a week before Christmas, we would be shoved in a corner amongst Christmas party groups but that couldn't be further from the truth. Overall a great experience, and I recommend a cocktail in the bar whilst awaiting your table.
Great food and fabulous ambience would highly recomend. Just a slight issue with the service being a bit slow and whilst I appreciate it was busy I would have expected a quicker service. This however did not spoil the overall experience just something to improve on.
As always, great attentive and fast service, good food and drinks. What struck me was the additional £2 added per head for ‘dinner’, a 12.5% service charge added to the total which included the £2 and VAT. This is becoming the norm in London. I think it shocking to Evie t us to ‘tip’ the government. Get a grip!
We had the most beautiful evening at The Delaunay celebrating our last date night before our first baby is born. The food was incredible and the service we received was above and beyond. The cherry on the cake was the congratulations cheesecake we were presented with at the end of the meal! Thank you for looking after us and making us feel so valued.
Outstanding service this weekend at the Delaunay, To start with I had made an error with the booking, and rather than simply turn us away, despite the restaurant being very busy, they not only found us a table, but gave us a couple of options! Our group of 7 then went on to order with half the group ordering from the lunch menu, the other half from the brunch menu, none of this was a problem, and the food and service at the table were equally superb. An establishment worthy of praise!
Booked for a post theatre meal. Could not fault the welcome and the service included hailing a tax for us. Food excellent, rated it four stars due to the huge tart that came as a starter. Not explained how large it was. But a minor detail as everything else was just great.
This was my second visit and as the first was excellent. Service is brilliant, professional, courteous and friendly. We had the champagne afternoon tea. Excellent value for money and just so perfect. We have decided our next visit will be for a meal as the food looked excellent and inviting.
The restaurant is stunning and the food superb. Our waiter spoilt our lunch by leaning across and filling our glasses!! He put still water in with sparkling without asking or changing the glasses. The maitre d' was wonderful , explained the desert menu and gave us his recommendation. He certainly made the meal very memorable.I told him about the waiter and he was most apologetic .This was my 3 visit and I will return.
Great atmosphere, impeccable service and a delicious menu. I’ve been a couple of times now, both as post theatre meal with family. They are great at being speedy if required. If you’re vegetarian or vegan there isn’t much to chose from but plenty of chicken and fish options available. They make the best fries too!
