Sooooo glad we booked as it was the day of the Brexit rally and the whole of London was chaotic ! Very warm welcome from the girls at the door and shown stright to our beautifully laid table We had already checked out the Brunch menu online so had a pretty good idea of what to choose. All the staff were charming. Just the right amount of friendly efficiency from a place ooozing it’s older brothers reputation , The Ivy The food was almost perfection. My wife had the poached eggs , smoked salmon and Hollandaise sauce and I had the crab linguine. The best linguine I ve had outside Italy Crime Brûlée and espresso coffee to follow. The bill was less than I anticipated which is something these days ! We will definitely return and recommend this restaurant to all of our friends. Well done !

Our first visit to the Mayfair Boisdales and was very impressed. Service and food excellent and a relaxing atmosphere. The venue is a lot smaller than the Belgravia branch but well worth a visit.

The food is ok. When I asked if the asparagus was white or green, the waiter didn't know, and responded: "Light green, very big!" They were neither. The asparagus was overcooked and lost the crispy taste. The shrimp cocktail was very good, though. I had the asparagus as second plate, and my companions second plate were neither the standard as our starters.

The food was really good, the service was excellent, i would like to thank you all the staff who looked after our party so well which, believe me, was not easy. My friend with allergies was really surprised, usually she ends up having a salad but here there were delicious choices for her. Thank you again.

I found the final bill to be excessive, given the food was Ok but not outstanding. A couple of the waiters were happy to engage, particularly with our little one. Noticing that she was upset over not being given a childrens menu. He was quick to resolve the issue.
Multiple waiting staff seemed to serve our table. All very efficient but not attempting any personal interaction.
Not a value for money experience.

Great restaurant in a fantastic location, service was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble for our waitress. The only issue I had was that I felt my table was in the way at times; got quite a few knocks throughout the meal from waitresses getting to other tables. Still a great place for a meal with friends. Highly recommend the Crispy Duck starter!
