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.

Great food as usual but given a very poor table in the restaurant corridor. Was moved to a different table but again a very cramped position.

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.

It’s a wholly civilised and cultured experience. The servers are appropriately attentive and amenable.
It’s also reassuringly expensive and worth every penny.

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.

The best restaurant in London without question. Impeccable service in the best tradition, only possible in an establishment owned by bankers who presumably don't expect it to be a major profit centre.

The Wilton’s experience is unparalleled! Immaculate service is the norm so this visit was slightly disappointing in that we had to call the waiter a couple of times.
Food was excellent but the menu was more limited than I remembered.
Still a great treat.

We arrived early for a pre theatre dinner. We were welcomed, led to the bar and offered a drink. The menus appeared, and explanations offered.
My partner asked about the dove sole, but chose the plaice. I chose smoked salmon (delicious) , from the winter menu, followed by a meaty and excellent skate served with crunchy topping of spring onions lemon and herbs.
Ultimately we were told that the plaice was not available, but the very efficient and charming head waiter offered fried filets of Dover sole, instead.
With chips and some spinach,, we enjoyed a real treat.
I had a glass of Sancerre, whilst my partner took a glass of the house Chablis:crisp flinty and flavoursome.
We refused dessert, but enjoyed the chocolate truffles for a little sweet taste at the end of a very pleasant meal.
Although we needed to be finished and ready to leave by 6.50pm, were never felt to be rushed, the waiter merely asking when we arrived if we were going to the theatre that evening.
