We went to The Wolseley on 11 th April, for lunch to celebrate my husbands birthday. We were a party of 5 adults and 2 children. The food was excellent and I can not praise the staff enough. They made a special day really memorable , being attentive but not rushing us. We look forward to another visit in the near future.

Best dinner and service I had in London! When I called one evening to see if I could make a dinner reservation for two, the gentleman said to just please come in and ask for James. Upon arrival my husband and I were shown instantly to a lovely table on the main floor. We each had a fish dish, sea trout and fillet of sole, both of which were wonderfully prepared! It seemed like the entire staff waited on us as they close attention to any possible thing we might need or want. Cannot wait to return for another memorable dining experience.

Polished glamour and excellence. Perfect for a breakfast meeting, girly lunch or a romantic date, and a coffee break with a cake too! They always hold back tables for walk-ins so also an option for an impromptu visit.

Mediocre, seems to be living off reputation. Arrived early so went for a drink in the bar, no where to sit but no problem, reasonable bar service. 15mins after reservation time we had to remind the restaurant staff we had a reservation. We had to go to them as the bar / serving staff seemed to spend most if their time bickering through the service hatch. Through to dinner...Quite cramped seating - great if that is what you like, and you should expect it. Food was middling, my ribeye was good, wife's fillet was poor. Wine list ok. Cheese cake desert was mediocre. Main issue was service, completely impersonal, massively rushed and frankly we got the impression that they didn't really care. On paying no one offered to get our coats or asked if we had enjoyed our evening - says it all really. If you want to try a famous spot , give it a go, if you want good food and decent service go elsewhere!

Horrible Tea! Dry, tasteless sandwiches. The only one that had taste was sun dried tomato and it tasted like chemicals. Dry pastries whose only taste was a ton of sugar. And worst of all, they can't make tea! They did not put enough tea leaves in the pot so the result was pale and watery and as undrinkable as the food was uneatable.. SOOOO many better options in London. In fact, pretty much anything is a better option than this place.

Dear Elizabeth, I’m sorry you did not enjoy your afternoon tea experience with us. What you describe does not reflect our normal high standards and I would like to discuss this further with you. Please contact me on dcraig@thewolseley.com . Kind regards, Daniel Craig.

Excellent ambiance, good service and good food. Make sure to book in advance for a table in the main room. Walk ins are welcome but usually get seated in the front smaller rooms. Still good but nowhere as nice as the main restaurant.

Decor of this restaurant is beautiful. staff are very friendly. we informed the restaurant that it was our anniversary and they provided us with a little extra. food was lovely and price wasn't unreasonable especially considering the neighbourhood you're in.

Hi, Normally I don't do this, but I have to say that my experience with the Wolseley has been a disaster. I made a reservation by phone , 5 days earlier to travel to UK, I ama a PR,and my clients were expecting to have some food experience around those fine dine restaurants in London. Well, after someone from the Wolseley reception was confirmed my reservation for Saturday late afternoon at 06:30, taking my email, phone number , and I was more than convinced to have done my job as usual, I did recieved the big surprise and my professional way to behave when I work , has been compromised as when came the day of dinner, as usual I do, I did call the restaurant above to confirm and to inform that we were ready to start our journey from the hotel, to make sure that my clients woul never complain about any incompetence. But...there is a big BUT:from the reception of the Wolseley , someone on rush,cold, and for me, no professional at all, was telling to me that there wasn't a table in the name I made the reservation, no mail, no phone numer which I gave to a female receptionist 5 days before.He didn't even try to arrange a new table in another restaurant of the company, or offer to me a chance to resolve the problem ..No way!! he was so indifferent and I was so worried because my clients.. Thank's GOd, I am a kind of person , who never loose the control, and because I did understand straight away the heavy of the situation, the Wolseley no care at all, I made a new phone call to another fine dine restaurant , and they were busy too, but instead to wash their hands, they offer to me to dine in another place , they booked the table, and even if the turn on was after 1 hour and half, I was save, my clients happy, dinner went true. Now, what's the piont? Dear Wolseley , you could be the best place bla bla bla.... but for me , your mistake, because was your fault, has been like you don't really care about customers, at this stage I have to think this, I am so sorry to say that, but for me, has been the worst experience in my professional life, and the most I?m still feeling sorry, is that the receptionist behaviour, was amazed at the indifference of the reception. I 'm so sorry that I don't remember the first name of the lady who tooks the reservation by phone, but I don't have any problem to show that I actually made that call because I can get the printouts of the telephone companywhich could prove that what I say it's true. Anyway, as I Pr I run the risk of compromising my position with regard to customer, and if not been for the alertness of the other restaurant,I would have lost the professional respect of my clients.I don't add more, but does not brin any customer ever at Wolseley.
