This is an amazing establishment. So British. The service and food were outstanding. We had the Stilton soufflé appetizer and it was one of the best things we’ve ever had.

We have dined at Wiltons for over a decade. Our most recent meal was exceptional from
start to finish. We could easily dine here each night of our stay. The smoked salmon,
the soups, fish and lamb were perfect. It is a busy kitchen, but we given time to enjoy
our dinner without staff looking at the clock. The bar staff, the wait staff, etc. I needed
a non-dairy emphasis, and my dishes were seasoned and finished with care.

まさしく 老舗かつ名店です。

4度目のロンドン訪問にして 初めての入店。ランチを予約して 一人で伺いました。
8月中旬でしたが 皆様の口コミを参考にさせていただき、ジャケットを着用し ネクタイを締めて訪問しました。正解でした。

入口をはいり 挨拶を済ますと、自分のテーブルへと案内してもらいました。奥角の店内が見渡せる 私の好みの席です。
ボトルの水と食前酒にシェリーを頼んでから、メニューを選び始めました。
ウェイトレス嬢に相談に乗っていただき、前菜はスティルトンチーズのスフレ・メインは舌平目にしました。
共に上品な味付けで 非常に美味です。
ワインは、ソムリエ氏の勧める今月のグラスワインの赤&白を一杯づついただきました。
ワゴンサービスのチーズを数種類と 食後酒としてポートワインを勧めていただき、堪能しました。
化粧室も 綺麗でしたよ。
会計は、約140ポンドほどだったと思います。勿論、代金以上の価値があります。

私は 食べ歩きが好きで、世界的に著名なレストランに伺うことがありますが、こちらは 空気感・ホスピタリティ・料理の全てが素晴らしく、世界最高峰のレストランのひとつだと思います。
まさしく 老舗かつ名店でした。
ありがとうございました。

The food was average. The ambiance ok. But the service left a lot to be desired. There was a constant feeling of being rushed.
Worst of all was the way the sommelier asked my guest what she would like to drink. Instead of a general question, she asked if my guest wanted a glass of champagne or a kir royale. Such up-selling is tiresome and puts the host in an awkward situation and the guest who had only just arrived, being forced to chose one or the other.
Please stop this practice. And when you have, let me know and I may return. Otherwise I won’t.

Wilton’s is extraordinary. It provides the very best time after time. The best ingredients, cooked with apparent simplicity & ease, to produce the most delicious food.
Swift, friendly service from a team of knowledgeable staff who are keen to ensure every customer has a great experience.
Good seating, lighting and acoustics- sadly often lacking in many other establishments that consider themselves equal.
A proper restaurant for those who appreciate the best

We had a most enjoyable lunch.The atmosphere was relaxed and our table was in an area where you could talk without having to raise your voice, which for me is important. The service was good and so was the food. We particularly liked the cheese soufle and the desert which was delicious. Tha main course was OK, but not exceptional.

Disappointing – off the list
At Wilton’s again to host a friend from the US for lunch. All seemed to go well at first, a bright, breezy reception, a nice booth (albeit very close to another table) and seemingly interested staff.
But the process was not relaxed with some urgency from the staff to get orders in, particularly drinks. It felt a little like a fast food outlet. The first course was unremarkable – my smoked salmon was thin to the point of transparency.
The main course was poor. A “medium” filet steak came almost well done. The lead waiter acknowledged this and suggested starting both meals all over again. My guest had started his Dover sole, but we reluctantly accepted the solution and the inevitable delay.
The replacement steak was little better. Yes, it was no longer well done, but clearly the quality of the meat was not the best. At this point I was more concerned to enjoy the conversation with my visiting friend than have further negotiations.
The flow of the meal had been ruined and it over-ran. My guest had to leave for another appointment, and I remained to pay the bill. There was no one “on duty” as I left the table – in fact there were no staff visible except the coat assistant and a junior barman who was bantering with her. It was like leaving a deserted ship.
It’s a shame that Wilton’s has lost its edge – the meal was a disappointment, the service rushed and anxious – not the professional, relaxed atmosphere of a supposedly leading restaurant.
I appreciate that the Wilton’s brand is heavily marketed, but the reality is that it does not deliver at its price point; I would hate visitors to London to be disappointed. Also, some of the tables are very close together.
Wilton’s is now off my list of London restaurants for now and I would recommend others to look elsewhere.

We were greeted by a warm and welcoming gentleman who took care of our coats in a very professional manner.
The food quality is very high, and the wine list excellent.
There were no scallops on that night, which came as a surprise for such an reputable seafood restaurant. Overall the service was perfect, with the notable exception of our main waiter, whose slightly aggressive tone and manners was totally out of place in such an environment.

Was pleasantly surprised seeing that most restaurant’s customers respected a dress-code. A quality place to invite business partners or family and friends to. Not cheap but this brings certain clientele. The only thing missing for me was no music. Some quiet relaxed jazz (Marc Johnson, for example) at the background would be nice and suitable for this venue. Food was delicious and they have a good choice of wines.
