The lunch menu was very nice and such good value at two courses for £20 or three for £25. The apple pie was amazing. Thank you for an excellent lunch.

Beautiful restaurant with adequate food. Very personable waiter who was simply overwhelmed. It seemed that staffing was not a priority. One of my dining companions waited what seemed like an eternity for her wine that she had ordered. Overall, even with our very personable waiter, restaurant was mediocre at best!

We had a super relaxed and long brunch with a huge selection of starters, fresh breads and cheeses. The main roast was served to order and was delicious. We were very well looked after and we are looking forward to going again!

Gosh what an experience! The selection of food as amazing. From Eggs Benedict before you tuck into to an amazing selection of starters - prawns, octopus, pork pies. squid, quiches with several types of salads to choose from. You are then invited to taste a variety of different cheeses before you have your main course. My sea bream with roast potatoes and mixed vegetables was mouth watering. Then your desert! What a surprise when a window shaped three tiered wooden arrangement arrived with little different deserts in each window. All this with free flowing wine! Great!

The website and menu choice of champagne by the glass didn’t match; I found the limited choice surprising for such an establishment. My dessert was far too cold, it should have been room temperature.

Not many bottomless Sunday brunches serve decent quality champagne throughout and generously. It's more expensive than most, but worth the difference just on the champagne alone compared to Prosecco. But the starter buffet was really good quality, particularly on shellfish, plus add in Oysters as well Eggs Benedict or Florentine cooked to order and we could have stopped there. But the main courses were excellent too. Less impressed with cheese and desserts, but we weren't hungry at all by then. Liked the room and the staff were good. My wife doesn't eat oysters or shellfish, but there was plenty of other choice, all good quality, and we will be back soon!

The format changed and (having spoken to other diners) left a lot of us extremely disappointed. The main course is now a la carte which is fine however all dishes are served with bland boiled cauliflower & broccoli even the cauliflower steak!!? The starter table consists of mainly vegetables and salads, only plain ham and pepperoni on the charcuterie board (I could get more variety for £3 at Sainburys) gone are the prawn cocktails, scotched quail eggs and breakfast buffet items one expects for brunch. The cheese board had pre-cut cheddar-like cheese and one blue cheese all inedible due the crust forming from extended exposure. No brie, camembert, goats cheese, manchego etc. The staff were wonderful as usual but the experience is no longer decadent, I feel cheated paying more money for lesser quality. Unless this changes back, after nearly 10yrs I will not be returning.

The Churchill Hotel is a luxurious oasis of calm on the edge of Portman Square and very conveniently situated just north of Oxford Street.

The Montagu Kitchen restaurant is a quiet, elegant and spacious venue offering well prepared European- style food and a good wine list. The set lunches and dinners are good value for the quality provided and the restaurant excels in its professional, discrete yet friendly service.

There is some background music but, overall, it is a place where you can enjoy quiet and intimate conversation as friends or as a business group.

Vastly overpriced for the quality of food and level of effort put into Christmas Dinner. When you are charging 110 pounds per person, minimum standards must be met, and the Montagu failed to meet them. The small 5 oz filet was clearly neither prime beef nor aged at all. The turkey option was a dried out roll of turkey and dressing that appears to have been prepared well in advance and merely heated up. The dessert table was what you would expect at a children's buffet table for a typical Sunday meal. Big mistake.

Had booked our annual Christmas lunch on a Saturday for 13. Incredible service. I had sent orders prior to booking and every seat was named along with Christmas crackers. The food was great, only issue was the vegetarian main, which wasn't enjoyed by both vegetarians. The service made the meal and the staff are a credit to the restaurant.

Had the festive afternoon tea. Sandwiches were delicious. Scones are the big ones, not the mini scones so at the end we were full. Overall experience was very good. It was noisy at first due to a group/company business party but once that was finished it was lovely and relaxing. Staff are helpful and the atmosphere pleasant. Would recommmend for a casual afternoon tea and catch up or business lunch.

We always come to the restaurant in early December for the Sunday brunch and always enjoy. This year they have introduced a fish and seafood bar which part of my party loved but I noticed that there was less for the vegetarian. Shame. Also less choice with desserts. No home made chocolate. What a shame, particularly as the price has gone up considerably since last year.

We were staying close by and thought it looked promising...
I'm giving the food 2 stars because I've had a lot worse, but it was really a little disappointing.
Starter was passable though uninspiring, the main - I had slow cooked lamb cannon which was surprisingly tough. Broccoli and the lamb sauce terribly over salted. Gave up on the lamb, too chewy. My friend had rib-eye steak medium-rare, which arrived very rare though just about acceptable.
Presentation was ok, but cooking seriously lacking, sorry.
Staff were friendly, wine ok but London prices of course!

I tried the Champagne Afternoon Tea with a good friend and we had the most amazing afternoon in
London. The sandwiches, scones and cakes were incredibly tasty and nicely presented. All the waiters were very polite and did a great job!
I would definitely recommend the Montagu for anyone who is looking for a sophisticated afternoon tea.

Very disappointing. Was told they did not have our booking despite me having two email confirmations.

Asked if we had booked for hot food? Not sure what he meant. He then gave us menu's whilst sighing deeply.

Offered not a very pleasant positioned table despite restaurant being three quarters empty. Was told nicer tables were reserved. I pointed out that I had booked a table a week ago.

Cannot comment on the food as sadly we decided to leave due to our frosty welcome. Had been really looking forward to our meal.

The restaurant was so proud to be refurbished with the theme of Churchill’s garden but it was a bit too much. We were there having a business meal and the service was a bit slow and the Caesar salad (it was a hot day we only wanted something light) was sub standard. Coffee was amazing though!

A very underrated restaurant for a business lunch. Choice of a menu fixe or a la carte. it has long been a favourite. Food excellent, and staff attentive without being intrusive. Tables are set well apart so no danger of "spilling any beans".
I like it and will continue to use it from time to time, when in the Portman Square area.

We were on holiday from the US at the Hyatt Churchill for a week. Though we enjoy exploring local restaurants, the long touring days sometimes make you want to just stay on property. So glad we did. Ended up with one lunch and two dinners at Montagu over the course of the week. Selction and quality always first rate, and appreciated the all day dining menu for basics and comfort food when needed. Lucky enough to have Joseph (sp?) as our server at two dinners. He (and his petite lady server partner) were extraordinary in service, focus and tiny details. Always anticipating and noting if something was perhaps not exactly what my daughter or we were looking for. Well done Joseph and Hyatt!

Unfortunately the ambiance is lacking as the restaurant is open to the hotel lobby and feels like you are eating in the lobby with people walking by. The food was disappointing. My steak was not served hot and was chewy - not tender at all. My wife's fish was tasteless and not filleted correctly with excessive bones in every bite. On the positive side, the service was fine, side dishes of spinach and potatoes were yummy, and we had a nice bottle of wine. But overall, we don't recommend a special trip to this restaurant for a meal.
