    I attended a lunch with clients in the private dining room recently. This restaurant is a great representation of the old grand European cafe scene and is certainly worth a visit whilst in London. The food is exceptionally well cooked and the service is impeccable. The menu is perhaps a bit dated (classic French/European food) but everything is served with care and precision. Surprisingly better value than you would expect for the surroundings or location. Creme Brûlée was outstanding (and huge!)

    Really lovely meal here. Staff were very polite when they couldn't find our booking and managed to squeeze us in. The chicken soup was delicious - nice, clear broth with deep flavours and included some mini dumplings and vegetables. The oysters were tasty and we got 3 of each as we couldn't decide which. I preferred the British oysters more. The beef bordelaise for 2 was cooked to perfection - medium rare! And they also provided a separate peppercorn sauce. Only one gripe was the starter selection on the menu was a bit lacking but the mains selection was good.

    Prices for lunch were better than I has thought for such a posh place. I highly recommend the avocado salad. Their burger is quite good as well as their fries (chips). The place had a nice vibe and I saw people dressed quite casual.

    Wonderful experience. Went here for English tea and it was delicious and very filling. Our waiter was superb and the other staff we interacted with was just as good. I loved the decor, very nice. Be sure to make reservations it was extremely busy.

    My husband and I were visiting from South Australia with our 14 yr old grandson. We had an amazing afternoon tea with our daughters who married Brits and our 2 young UK grandchildren. We were treated like royalty - thank you so much! We wrote in one of your post cards to another daughter in Australia and gave it to the concierge to post never dreaming he would post it to Australia but he did! It arrived today. Thank you for such a special memory. We will return !!

    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
