The best service in town. Love that all of the staff remember us, welcome us back every time, and make us feel special. It costs nothing and means the world.

We went here for a breakfast treat and were not disappointed. Eggs Arlington (royal by another name) were cooked to perfection and kedgeree was good too. Service good. Not cheap for a breakfast but worth it once in awhile as surroundings are worth a look. Best seats in the house if you get them would be on the balconies overlooking the restaurant.

Great to be back after many years, better of course for not being crammed in...one wish is that they would do half litre carafes of some of their wines

Excellent to be back at the Wolseley, the guests are more spread out and it makes the place feel safe and a little more exclusive. I hope they can make it work for staff and customers alike. Food and service up to the usual standards.

Lovely rarebit. Service was a little spotty and the table we had was really awkward to have for a lunch. Would have been nice to have had a warmer welcome and more proactive service. Service speed of the food was lightning quick so no issues there. The lighting is also a little flat in the interior.

Lovely place. We all had pancakes for breakfast which were great. The ones with mixed berries and cream were impressive. We also had juices and coffee. The green juice was expensive and not so tasty. The carrot juice was nicer. Service was excellent.

Had a wonderful dinner at The Wolseley to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The venue is amazing and very special, as a bank in a previous existence. Our waiter, Bear, was very attentive and friendly, going out of his way to ensure we had a lovely time. Food was amazing - cod special of the day and the steak were perfect. Eggs benedict to start was lovely - softly poached egg was just gooey and slightly runny. Dessert did not disappoint either - crumble of the day was apricot and cherry. And we had a lovely marzipan anniversary message with it! All in all, we will be back!

A perfect breakfast spot! Delicious food, guest temperature taken upon entry, they even gave me an extra cushion (being heavily pregnant) to make the bench more comfortable for me!

Food was great as usual and expected. My favourites Holsten Schintzel was delicious though the portion seems to be getting smaller. However I was very concerned at the moment with the COVID 19 situation that the serving crew were not wearing masks and the place seemed crowded ( which normally would be a great thing) was a bit worrying for me and my party.
