First of all, I have been told that this restaurant is apparently currently being targeted by “fraudsters”, according to Wiltons, who are working with the Information Commissioner’s Office to resolve this issue. These alleged fraudsters managed to get hold of the details of my restaurant booking (which I had made through OpenTable), and call me in order to obtain my card details, in order for them to spend on my card by saying that they needed a deposit to secure my restaurant booking. As a result I had to cancel the card before I’d even got to Wiltons. Despite the restaurant knowing this before I got there to celebrate my birthday, no one apologised to me on my arrival for any inconvenience caused and they declined to give us the kind of table we requested. Beyond this disappointing start to the evening, I must say that the service and the food were excellent. The soufflé, the oysters, the lobster Thermidor and Newberg, were all fantastic. For dessert I had the crumble and my girlfriend had the strawberry soufflé with pistachio ice cream. Again these were top notch. The restaurant laid on a small treat for my birthday at the end of the meal which was much appreciated. The atmosphere was cheerful and nowhere near as stuffy as I had feared. I had feared that the old-school reputation of Wiltons might mean substandard food - but not a bit of it. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it all was. So I’ll definitely be back at some stage, but I won’t be laying out any deposits for tables next time!

Ask for a booth. My soup was awful so returned it. Fish excellent...I thought the menu of the day could have been more interesting...not imaginative cooking...a bit dated.

Excellent food and service. Rather warm room that became uncomfortably so in the last third of the meal. AirCon eventually turned on as we were leaving. Probably just a snafu due to it being the first evening sitting following lock down. Would strongly recommend

Fantastic lunch for my father’s 89th birthday. Impeccable service, very attentive, they heard it was my father’s birthday and prepared for him a little cake without us asking!! The lunch was lovely, and its a perfect restaurant for a special lunch.

Amazing experience! Delicious food!

The baked Bishop Stilton Soufflé is worth coming back for more!

We had a birthday lunch and were given a very romantic table (in the booth). The staff was very attentive, welcoming and not intrusive.

The food was absolutely delicious! Scallops, Lemon Sole, the Soufflé, Black halibut - everything was cooked to perfection.

We will definitely be back!

The welcome, service, and ambience is quite simply generous and faultless. The multitude of staff acknowledge everyone. I started with twice baked Cropwell Bishop souffle, and continued with roasted skate wing with butter and capers. All delicious. I was not drinking alcohol for January, so settled for fizzy water. I have eaten at Wiltons many times, and have enjoyed every visit. My only criticism is the awful creamed potatoes (mash), which I have complained about on every visit. They cream the potatoes using a food processor, which results in a thick wallpaper paste consistency. Dreadful. They claim there is no time to do it differently. I will still visit regularly (if not banned) but will avoid the awful spuds

I have always wanted to eat here but had not been able to afford it so was very glad to see there was a deal! Managed to find a bottle of wine just under £40 which was a relief.
Food and service was faultless . We sat in a booth which was great for a catch up - we could hear each other easily.

Great menu, vast wine list. Excellent experience all round I would happily recommend Wilton’s.

We had an absolutely wonderful dinner at Wilton's from start to finish. The service was impeccable and the Dover Sole was amazing. We also loved the ambiance - so nice to be able to hear one another and enjoy nice conversation over a meal without the usual noise that most restaurants have now. We will definitely return to Wiltons every time we are in London.

Wiltons was an oasis of calm and cosseting--the service was impeccable without being intrusive and the food was outstanding (Stilton shuffle, Dover sole)--for the quality, the price was spot on. We can't wait for the opportunity to return.
