    My wife and I ordered the well known chicken schnitzel. It was mediocre . The chicken was dry and the breading was flavorless. The two red wines I ordered by the glass, one pinot noir - gamay from the Loire (which in Switzerland results in a delicious Dôle) was poor and the "collaboration" La Tour de By - Woolseley Médoc was equally poor. Having had the same schnitzels at The Delaunay, which were delicious, five days before, I must say we were surprised and disappointed by what seemed just a tourist-trap cuisine. The service by Natalia, however, was impeccable. I am sorry to strike this beautiful venue from the list of favorites for our annual visit to London.

    The dining room at the Wolseley is one of the most beautiful rooms in the world. It’s also a great restaurant. For Sunday lunch we both had my favorite - cheese soufflé with a green salad on the side and an affogato for dessert. The service was perfect - friendly and competent. I try to go every time I’m in London.

    Very tasty lamb. The escargots could have done with a bit more salt. Poor glasses for the wine.
