Wine pairing was poor. Jazz was not as good an normal in both quality and quantity. Food was nice as normal. But they have lost a few of the nice extra touches they had before.

We enjoyed our evening at the Jazz Lounge very much. The vocalist was charming, communicative and very professional. The trio worked well together.
During the evening we enjoyed excellent wine advice from the sommelier and the meal was excellent. A really lovely ambiance.

An amazing experience. We enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu with paired wine and it was fantastic. All the staff wonderful and the music really made it. We thought excellent value for money given the quality of the food and performance plus the glasses of champagne included with our reservation - a really memorable way to celebrate and we’ll definitely be back!

Definitely a special occasion restaurant (not only because of the vert high price!). We really enjoyed our evening. Delicious food and attentive staff. Lovely jazz music albeit in a very formal atmosphere. Wine list is ridiculously expensive. We paid £100 for an average bottle (there were hardly any bottles below £100; a small selection was available at the circa £60 mark but that was the low-end). Meal for two was almost £400 (a la carte)! So the set menu is definitely better value.

The only thing that spoilt our experience was the timing of serving the 5 courses. We got the 1st course after 30mins and I didn’t get the second course until almost an hour later!
The Jazz was great so was the food and ambiance.

Wonderful evening for a birthday celebration. The service was outstanding and the food was really nice. My only complaint is the food is a bit expensive for what it is - however, if you consider the experience/music is embedded in the cost it makes a bit more sense.

The ambience and the service was very good. Mocktail was impressive. My starter and main were also tasty; however my friend's ones were too salty. Desserts totally failed I'm afraid - terrible texture and the taste was plain.

Loved the jazz, would recommend.

Food was very good - nice tasting menu with good variety and well presented. The special surprise dessert was very good (I won't spoil the surprise). The entertainment was OK but the room is a little small and feels a bit like a private dining room rather than a restaurant. It wasn't very busy and lacked the buzz of a usual Friday night dining experience and at times I felt a bit sorry for the singer as she was singing to a handful of people, some of whom looked totally disinterested. Overall it was a nice evening but we won't be rushing back.

We had the 5 course tasting menu (which ends up being a few more after they add in small dishes in between some of the courses), which was really good. I felt as much effort had been put into the vegetarian menu as the normal one, and everything was presented beautifully, and the staff were very attentive. The live jazz was great, and you were still able to have a conversation. It is a very small restaurant.

The fantastic live jazz music was unfortunately let down by the poor food and mediocre service. Every dish looked incredible and was impeccably dressed but somehow lacked flavour (from the amuse-bouche through to the petit fours). The service in the restaurant was ok but nowhere near what you'd expect of a five star hotel. The service in the bar was very poor and inattentive. Would not recommend going there for a drink before dinner. If the jazz duo played somewhere else, I'd probably consider going to see them there, but never again at the Wellesley London.

This was our second visit to this venue and we were not disappointed. The service is excellent as is the quality of food. We again chose the tasting menu [different courses from our previous visit] and were delighted with the results - well presented, good quality and included some additional surprise courses. The entertainment is always of a high standard. It makes it a very memorable and enjoyable occasion. Perhaps the only thing to be aware of is that the wine list has an extensive but rather expensive set of choices, with the cheapest bottle around £40. There is an option to have wine to accompany the tasting menu which is around £50 extra but which provides for a supply of good wines across the evening.
