What Insiders Are Saying
As far as classic, good-for-everything establishments go, it’s hard to beat the Wolseley. The breakfasts here are an essential London experience.
Service was attentive. Food is always good. We eat here at least once every time we are in London.
Great location by the Ritz Hotel London and the great shopping areas. The fish is always fresh and delicious, and they also have wonderful chicken and beef entrees. I always eat lunch here when I’m in London and am never disappointed.
Enjoyed our visit,food good,service great,people watching ideal,value for money ?
Food was good and we were lucky with a great table. Very overpriced and service was ok. Have had better experiences elsewhere in London.
Overpriced wine menu, lots of staff but only one who knew what service was. Left alone and overlooked most of the evening. £300 for dinner for two with a bistro/brasserie menu, nice bit for the price was expecting something special. Underwealmed by the whole costly experience
Great Vibe. Love the food choice. Anything from a snack to a steak. Had half lobster which had a good flavour although slightly overcooked and chewy. Lovely crispy hot chips. Would absolutely recommend have been going back for years. Very stylish and buzzy atmosphere.
Fabulous setting that is very olde world. A touch of how service used to be, we were made to feel special. The menu is a little old fashioned but I guess that is the appeal. It was for a birthday dinner so it suited a special occasion. Our wait staff were fabulous and very attentive. I would recommend for the experience more than the menu.
I have been many times to the Wolseley and was very pleased. However this time I was very disappointed with the organization (not the waiters service). Even though we had a booking we had to wait 35min to be sitted not even in the main room but in the small bar room. Once we had order the food we had to wait another 40minutes. The management needs to go back on track.
A luxurious setting for a restaurant with a simple menu. Service and table settings were impeccable. Had the daily dish which was goulash with herb dumplings. They bring it out is a copper saucepan and then pour it onto your plate. Lovely textured meat and really filling dumplings! As always, don't overload with the bread beforehand!
The food was not great. Atmosphere as always—wonderful.
I had lunch in The Wolseley with two friends to celebrate a 75th birthday , I had mentioned this when booking . My friend was delighted when 3 macaroons with a Happy Birthday plaque arrived with our
A very enjoyable lunch , very busy but we were no unduly rushed even after two hours .
Great place for Breakfast! Lovely place! One of the greatest I had in London.
Absolutely superb as always.
Food excellent. Ambiance perfect.
Service could not be better and excellent value for money
This is a very traditional British restaurant with wonderful food and sevice!
I love the buzz in the Wolseley, its a fantastic building with great staff and food. You can spend £20 or £200 on dinner it's up to you and quality all the way
Our food was delicious and the dining room was gorgeous. Service was a little slow towards the end of our meal. Not surprising for a London establishment but I expected more from The Wolseley wait staff. But we'll definitely be back.
On arrival even though I had booked a table We had to queue behind Customers’ whom had dropped in to see if there was a table available which took quite a few minutes.
We were welcomed very nicely and seated up in the balcony which was fabulous.
The waiter who seated us and took the drinks order was great.
The only issue was that my Son’s brunch was spoilt with burnt muffins underneath the Eggs and hollandaise. He only realised when he’d taken a mouthful - it was charred and they did replace it but by then we had finished our brunch!
Had a wonderful dinner at the Wolseley. My husband and I are on vacation in London (we're from San Francisco), and decided to have an early anniversary dinner at a classy restaurant. This place did not disappoint, it's stunning inside and the service was excellent (Thank you Moussa!). We shared the scallops and endive salad to start. The star of the meal was my pork chop and my husband had the peppercorn filet (so tender). To top it off, they wrote "Happy Anniversary" on our dessert. Excellent range of wines by the glass available. I'll definitely be back when I'm in town.
We enjoyed dinner at the Wolseley on Sunday evening. The service was excellent - friendly and helpful but unobtrusive. Our waiter was very helpful with the wine list and guided us to an excellent choice allowing us to taste several of the wines. The menu covers many tastes with a focus on comfort food. I had escargot and coq au vin - both served just as they should be. The room is dramatic but small enough to feel intimate with the buzz of an interesting and varied crowd. I'll go back anytime!
Good space to meet friends
Staff were very attentive the food was ok but very disappointed to spend £25.00 on a Sunday roast when the roast potatoes were reheated and very watery!!!
Birthday celebration. Sandwiches scones and cakes very fresh. Offer of extra sandwiches , felt like very good value for a beautiful restaurant Like the wolsley
Unfortunately did not get the table we asked for / put in the notes at time of booking
We experienced a lovely afternoon tea. All of the food was delicious especially the chicken sandwiches.
Service was very good, it was a great time.
Great afternoon tea as expected, excellent sandwiches, cakes and tea . Unfortunately the service was patchy. Friendly and charming staff but we had up to 4 different waiters at separate points and so no- one looking for the timely offers of top ups that provide at least half the value. £30 per head is a lot of money for a sandwich and cakes but I’m always happy to pay those prices if the service is there without needing a prompt.
Afternoon tea at the Wolseley was wonderful. Excellent service and a special room, but not too stuffy. Sandwiches were yummy, tiny fancy desserts were yummy, but the scones with clotted cream and strawberry preserves were simply heaven. It was a great experience!
Arguably this is an “institution” however the food is unremarkable (and expensive for what it is), the service is superficial (and a little patronising) and worst of all, they have a 2hr table turning policy which they only told us at the end our meal. Despite this, the place seems to be full everytime I go there. Completely over-hyped
Chilled tomato soup - incredibly tasty . Scallops - divine. Portuguese tart - had to defend it from co-diner (but I did sample her crumble which passed muster!). Usual high standard. If I have to delve deep for a complaint the one of waiters could’ve cracked a smile at some point but nice he takes his work seriously 😉
I was in town for a business meeting and this restaurant was recommended, the food was amazing. Everyone at the table simply enjoyed their food. The atmosphere was lively and energetic.
I will definitely try again on my next visit to London.
A stunning salon, great food and a very well selected wine list, plus attentive service makes The Wolseley an instant favorite during my visits to London
Was a great experience with my partner!
Only thing that they don’t do is a candle for birthdays otherwise, service and everything was amazing!
Great for breakfast, make sure you book a table!
The eggs are outstanding
The scone and the tea sets were not bad, but the first port of tea was warm, even could not make the tea well.
The service was below average, as waiters were teasing and laughing at each other loudly and always.
I’m quite curious about where so many 5-stars came from.
The problem was that we ordered our main course and then desert at the same time as the desert took 30 odd minutes to prepare-schmarn- but when we came to the end of our main course we were told that the order for desert had been overlooked. Unnacceptabe. We could have been offered something off the bill but were not. Therefore I did not leave a tip.
A bit noisy for afternoon tea - lovely room and location
As always, a solid experience. The tea sandwiches are getting a bit unimaginative and tired but the food is always good, the servers attentive, and the atmosphere exciting. A fine, if pricey, restaurant.
Services... I have been here for lots of time. However this time is .... just avoid the British waitress then everything is almost perfect. Can’t believe how she act to serve a table. May be we look like Chinese.... food are quite ok
I booked this restaurant because it was my mother's birthday
The food was delicious but expensive for a small portion also the drink menu was also pretty extensive.
However, I would recommend this restaurant. The service was very good. Our waiter was so amazing and helpful. He even helped me to crack the lobster that I ordered
Really enjoyed dinner here catching up with a friend. Excellent service and very reasonable steak! Definitely coming back to try the breakfast.
Overall we had a most enjoyable dinner and will certainly retain it on our list.
