What Insiders Are Saying
The Delaunay is the restaurant you want to be in when you just want to feel good. Sit in the amazing dining room or hit the cafe for a quick one.
Delaunay... a class act
Always a joy,
Service was not as expected. Seated there 10 mins without a menu, then another 10 mins nobody asked if we were ready to order. Very noisy and very hard to get any waiter/waitress attention while we were there. Almost ignored. Food was okay but far from delicious, not value for money...
Wonderful tea service!
We went for a bite before the theatre. Very nice atmosphere and staff
We were VERY dusappointed - we visit here quite regulary as we are always going to the theatre and like to eat at The Delaunay but this time we were really disappointed!! The food took FOREVER (we only had mains) and then when the bill came we asked what the £4.00 cover charge was and the waiter tells us "its for the tablecloths and things" !!!! We were utterly chocked and possible had one of the worst experiences ever there. We will not be returning!
Delicious food in just the right amounts. Great service: attentive but unobtrusive. Went for lunch and stayed far longer. Class.
Excellent food and service. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Great restaurant in every way.
Good service and able to hold a sensible discussion over breakfast. Ambience was great and service discreet and unobtrusive.
Staff are really friendly and helpful, food not bad. Only issue is the noise level when the restaurant is full.
A great place for a celebration! We enjoyed celebrating our friend’s special birthday with good food, good wines and good service.
As ever always reliable and great central place to eat
A very nice brunch experience with friends on the day of arrival in London! Highly recommended!
Fabulous ambiance. Great food, and staff. Special
Excellent food and service 👍🏻👍🏻
Das Restaurant liegt gegenüber des Musical-Theaters Aldridge.
Die Speisekarte ist abwechslungsreich. Das Essen ist sehr gut und im mittleren Preissegment. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und aufmerksam. Wir mussten nicht lange auf unser Essen warten und hatten deshalb genügend Zeit, das
Essen zu geniessen, bevor wir ins Musical „Tina“ gingen. Eine Tischreservation ist ratsam.
Perfection Great room. Great ambience.
Mi experiencia con el afternoon tea fué altamente positiva. Calidad ( scones deliciosos) cantidad, servicio y relación calidad/precio. Volveré sin duda
Great food. Excellent service. Very good ambiance.
As always, the Delaunay is now my default choice for lunch with friends and business colleagues. The menu is just what I want - mainstream food with a wide choice and in particular, excellent seafood and favourites such as kedgeree and sea trout. Excellent wine list with some really interesting wines (excellent Riesling).
As usual. a most enjoyable meal in an relaxing environment.
Fairly disappointed by a £2 per person "brunch" charge, next to the general 12.5% service charge. When asking for the reasoning behind this £2 charge, the explanation was rather vague and did not make any sense ("This will allow us to keep the overview within the restaurant for the people who enjoy our brunch and to rectify the price of the menu"). In my opinion, there is no balance between the service charge/tip (£ 4.50 p.p) and the actual cost of the dish ~£10. The waitress deducted the service charge, but it still left a bittersweet feeling behind. Why would you charge 12.5% service over the brunch charge. That is tip on top of tip. Ridiculous!
Absolutely loved it! Perfect from the start. Great service, delicious food and very welcoming. Also not forgetting the smiley door man! We will definitely be back.
Very good pre-thetre meal. Reception welcomed us and we were sat immediately. Professional and consistent service and the food was excellent. It is a large room and a bit loud. Perfect location.
Took my husband for our anniversary. I had been several times before with friends and it’s always my top choice for my birthday. Can’t fault it. My husband was very impressed and that takes some doing. When booking we were asked if it was a special occasion and as a result were treated to a little celebratory after dinner surprise. Only trouble was that the portions are massive. We should have shared a starter as we just couldn’t manage a pudding by the end of it. We shall definitely be back !
Excellent everything for a pre theatre and in my view any other meal. It looks good, it tastes good and it is charming form beginning to end - my favourite of the Corbin and King stable.
Great downtown place for pre or post theater (or whatever). Been twice & l’ll be back again
Great breakfast in London by far. Only 5-star hotels will compare.
The food at the Delaunay is 'Germanic' hearty robust but very tasty and well done. We have eaten here a number of times and like it for its comfort food style and also for the great ambience which is a restaurant with a genteel buzz. Service is good wines are good its great for a brunch or lazy lunch in our opinion, admittedly we haven't tried dinner yet and its smarter than a lot of other brunch venues.
as always fantastic service and food, always a winner
Booked a theatre/dinner deal which was good value - set menu was limited but nice. We both had the salmon tartare to start which was really divine; the chicken schnitzel was MASSIVE (we seriously could have shared one portion) and nice but served with just a green salad and VERY green dressing so a bit dry after a while. Lovely glass of Corbieres though to wash it down. I would love to go back and try more of the menu - it's a gorgeous venue.
Good food in a quite noisy environment. Good for a business lunch
Excellent as ALWAYS and I particularly like the "feel good factor" regarding the ambience.
Very good food. Good service. Everything was very very good.
My safe bet for years, this is the place you go to when you're meeting the parents for the first time or want to impress your date. Actually no excuse is needed to visit The Delaunay, because the food is delicious, the service impeccable, the surroundings gorgeous. It never fails to impress.
As always a superb location for breakfast with excellent service and food
A wonderful place to go and soak up the atmosphere as well as the best afternoon tea ever.
All good as usual, I could strongly recommend
