    Perfect place for afternoon tea. I have been there a few times and each time the service level and quality of food has been top notch. Booking is recommended if you're planning to go on a weekend.

    Beautiful venue and polite waiters but food was way below far, maybe breakfast just isn't there speciality? Its not cheap though so we'd expected a lot better. The chef doesn't know how to poach an egg properly 🤷🏻

    With excellent food and good service abounding in this area of London, what makes The Wolseley stand out is its charming decor. It wears its history on its sleeves (with remnants of the bank, Chinese restaurant and auto showroom it once was) and so the place is a wonderful medley of aesthetics. It does also, nonetheless, boast delicious food (a particularly good breakfast menu) and a professional and courteous staff.

    A beautiful dining room that’s always busy (so it's worth making a reservation in advance, although they have tables for walk ins too). I have been here for lunch and afternoon tea before and the service has always been fantastic. But coming here for a birthday breakfast was a wonderful way to start the day. We enjoyed a glass of English sparkling wine alongside smoked salmon, haggis & duck egg and a full English breakfast. The front-of-house staff are so warm and professional, despite having a constant stream of guests entering and exiting (they make an effort to greet and say farewell to each guest) they make it all seem so easy. Would highly recommend visiting, and I’m sure I’ll return very soon.

    This establishment is absolutely beautiful. The building itself is an architectural dream. The food was for me hit and miss. I had Oysters which were very nice especially the French ones. However the Schnitzels were dry and difficult digest. The customer service was adequate. If you enjoy dining in a truly sophisticated environments then this is definitely the place for you

    One of the most impressive surroundings: beautiful and never disappointing, the Wolseley is everything you want in a brasserie: affordable dishes, a very wide carte and great wines as well as a bar. The afternoon tea is also a delight as well as brunch Nothing to criticise they even have an area for drop ins ... recommend booking but if not, wait for a table while having a drink at the lovely bar ... one of my favourites

    Great atmosphere. But we ordered a half bottle of champagne for brunch which never arrived. Then the waiter came back to ask us to remind him what we'd ordered. Then I was initially brought the wrong plate of breakfast. When the right food and drinks did arrive they were good. Probably expect a smoother experience from a venue of this standing...

    A Proper Afternoon Tea The Wolseley has long been one of our favorite spots to have Afternoon Tea when we’re in London. The atmosphere, level of service, and array of sandwiches, scones, desserts, tea, and champagne are exceptional. I continue to highly recommend the Wolseley, but if the weather is a bit warm, the temperature and humidity can turn a grand experience into a sweltering slog, to the point that my husband began to grow flush and had to leave the restaurant just to get some fresh air. We still love Afternoon Tea at The Wolseley, but will return only during cool months. We wish that management turned on air-conditioning, assuming that they had it … or invest in installing some sort of air circulation and cooling system. I really hate to harp on the temperature when the food, service, and atmosphere are so delightful, but we really could not enjoy the experience when feeling faint.
