The Wolseley Ratings and Reviews
We read the reviews about The Wolseley and were anxious to try it. We had a party of seven and tried a variety of things: French toast, haggis, eggs Benedict, etc. each item that we had was delicious!! Also the fresh juices offered were fresh and very good! I would highly recommend brunch at The Wolseley!! The only downside that we experienced was slow service at our table in taking the order and receiving the check but we did get our food quickly. We would go back if we had time on this trip!
As ever the Wolseley delivered a superb lunch in an amazing setting. The food was fantastic, wine perfect and well priced while the service and welcome outstanding. Our guests had never been before and were blown away and will definitely ad this Corbin and King flagship restaurant to their favourites list.
Absolutely delicious food - sea bass was so fresh and flavoursome followed by pear and ginger ice cream which was gorgeous. The house wine was excellent and not too expensive at £25. Waiters were attentive but not intrusive. I would highly recommend the place
We were really surprised by the surroundings and history of the restaurant! Never thought of it being a car showroom!! The name should have given it away!
We were a party of four school friends in our sixties and I had booked the meal and was apprehensive in case the others hated it! It surpassed all our expectations, food, service, ambience, the quality and selection of food and the wonderful service! The price was a very pleasant surprise too! Good value- we are Yorkshire lasses and appreciated not being ripped off!!!!
Thank you and the staff for a very enjoyable end to our three day break in London
Our experience at The Wolseley was out of this world! My boyfriend and I went on a Saturday morning for breakfast. We were celebrating our 3 year anniversary and my belated birthday. The inside is very modern, with a touch of antique. The black and white floors and beautiful lights are a must see. They've got a very extensive menu, something to make everyone happy! We started off with eggs Benedict and berry pancakes for dessert. The food was delicious and very filling! When booking online, in the comments section, I asked for a "good" table as we were celebrating the mentioned 2 occasions. To our great surprise, when it was time for our dessert, a head of staff approached our table with our pancakes and complementary french cakes, with almond slabs with "Happy Anniversary" and "Happy Birthday" on them! What a lovely surprise!! They truly made our experience at The Wolseley one to remember. We will definitely be returning. This is a must do when in London! THANK YOU!
A standout in London’s busy restaurant scene. A mix of middle European cuisine (schnitzels and strudel) with British (smoked haddock) and superb fresh shellfish. Breakfast thru lunch thru dinner and beyond. The setting is turn of the century elegance. Fine wine list by the glass or bottle. Oh, and have dessert as well. Pricey but worth it.
The restaurant was packed at 2pm. We had to wait tenminutes for our table - but it was worth it.
The menu is always the same and I love their chopped chicken salad. The waiters are very good and the service is excellant.
I don't like the idea of a cover charge in addition to an optional service charge.
Had a lovely breakfast with my wife,there are meals on the menu that you don't see in other restaurants.I can recommend the duck eggs on haggis with whisky sauce ,kept me full all-day ,my wife had kedgeree ,the first time she had eaten this dish ,it was absolutely delicious.Add in the first class service and the buzz of the full restaurant it is the place to go for a great meal.
I love the interior decoration and the fresh bakery set out in the middle of the restaurant.
However the tables are placed quite close to each other and the walls and floors are not noise-absorbing so the place can get quite noisy and you can be overheard.
Service was great, and there was a good selection of hot and cold breakfasts. As a tourist I tried the haggis with the duck egg, quite a heavy portion but it was a great authentic English/Scottish breakfast!
