    Greenhouse is the epitome of perfection when it comes to fine dining. The food and services surpasses all expectations with incredible attention to detail in every course. Highly recommended for any blow out meal or special occasion.

    Absolutely splendid experience. The only downside was at the start, namely finding the restaurant in a Mayfair back street. After that, relaxed attentive service, a lovely room with well spaced tables and superb food. Not cheap of course, but the feeling is of a place with confidence and great skill, maybe looking for that coveted third star. Has gone straight to the top of my favourite list.

    Truely exceptional food and the best service in London. Can’t remember how many times we have been but we have loved every dish. Alex Dillings loves his truffles, although his food is some of the most eye catching out there.

    The Greenhouse with two Michelin stars is considered to be one of the landmarks of classic French cuisine in London. This was my second visit - the first (under a different chef) was one of the most remarkable experiences in my vast culinary career. My recent visit was excellent as well, with many high-end dishes (as can be expected at that price level) but fell short compared to my earlier visit: Californian inspired Clam Chowder was excellent with the range of surprising colonial flavours perfectly supporting the dish. The Clarence Court Egg with white Alba truffle was an interesting game of various textures. When I saw Bouillabaisse on the menu I was excited to have one in top quality outside the Cote d’Azur – yet what came was the chef’s interpretation of the subject, a rather uninspired piece of dover sole. Do not get me wrong, it tasted lovely but I could not hide my disappointment that I had been “refused” the true French dish promised by the menu. Main course was a succulent Chicken Hunter Style, great quality and perfect craftsmanship, yet again no course I`d particularly come back for. All in all these were excellent courses, on expert technical level, but I was unable to identify a single truly remarkable and outstanding dish defining the restaurant. In addition the “fake” Bouillabaisse makes me wonder if Greenhouse changed from top-notch French to a more International and less striking style of interpreting classic French favourites. “Interpretation” should also mean improvement, otherwise it makes no sense, in my opinion. One major plus was the sommelier, she picked out one of the best Puligny-Montrachet bottles I ever had the pleasure of diving into!

    Exemplary Service, it was very professional but also friendly and relaxed. We had the set lunch menu and enjoyed all of the 3 courses. The star items were the canapes which were truly amazing. We choose the option for 2 glasses of wine each with out meal and the wines provide were very very good and excellent value. Definitely one to remember and revisit.

    It was too expensive. Most of the food was nice but given the cost it did not seem to be value for money. It is quite stiff as a place and although not noisy which was a bonus we didn't really like the ambiance.

    This truly is an exceptional restaurant. Hidden away in a Mayfair Mews, this restaurant offers exquisite cooking and stunning service. The wine list is extensive with some amazing Burgundy's... The level of cooking makes this one of the best places to eat in Mayfair. I look forward to returning.

    The food was delicious apart from the fig dessert which was a disappointment. Although it looked beautiful, the taste was bland, which I suppose shouldn’t have been a big surprise for me given that figs are currently out of season. I left most of it and was not asked why by the staff. Thankfully the petite fours were delicious and made up for it. I would say overall excellent value and otherwise lovely tasting food.

    Obviously a great restaurant, but has recently become very poor value for money. So, let's start with the food. Obviously, this is true Michelin star food, but not as many stand-out dishes as you'd think - only a couple in a meal. Used to be very good for vegetarians, but the vegetarian offering is now significantly behind the omnivore offering - from small things like there's one less amuse bouche for the veggies to the more serious that the main course for omnivores was duck, but for veggies, it was essentially two chips (very good and very clever, but at the end of the day fried potatoes). Now, the service. Absolutely spot on. Some might say slightly over the top, but if you want perfect service, this is pretty much it. Very friendly and knowledgeable. The wine was equally great with a massive wine list including wines that you don't normally see in London - we had a wine from Crete which was OK, but we loved it for the rarity of it. Our Malbec was good but for the thick end of seventy quid, you'd expect more. The cheese trolley was a bit disappointing. The cheese was served a little cold, so it wasn't as punch as it should have been. A couple of our cheeses were distinctly dull. Overall, this is a top ten London restaurant for omnivores, but from a value perspective, is it worth it? Not sure. For veggies, just avoid - it's not top ten and yet it's still top five price.

    This was our first visit to the restaurant since Alex Dilling became chef and we were very pleased that the standards had not dropped and if anything were even better. 6 of us has the set lunch menu at it was simply without fault. The service as always was excellent and this is a real jewel of a restaurant tucked away in Mayfair. I think that we will visit again soon.

    Food excellent, an improvement on the already high previous standards. Wine mist remains very extensive, with mark up to match, hard to find anything you want below £250. Sommelier very good though. One major disappointment- we are regular visitors and were shown to a poor table, asked to move to our usual table which was empty and were told it had been specifically picked out and reserved earlier that day, head chap insisted we could not sit there. Shown to another table instead, directly affected by the in and out from the kitchen. Miraculously our chosen table later became free, we moved and the people who had booked it, history does not reveal. Maitre d’ didn’t have the courage to come and ask if everything was ok. Also, we were given a tasting menu only and had to ask for a la carte. Overall very good but at £600 for two for dinner, the above should not happen. Also, they shouldn’t allow tables for 8 in the main room. It’s just too noisy and disruptive for others.
