Visit The Wolseley for a celebratory, special occasion. Located on Piccadilly right next to the Ritz Hotel, the Wolseley has a great art deco glamour and offers a wide range of Modern European food, including breakfast, afternoon tea, lunch and dinner.
It has a large downstairs area and mezzanine sections and the whole interior is beautifully decorated. The menu is European with a French influence and has a large choice of meat and fish with plats du jour (dishes of the day!). We had the fillet steak, roast loin of venison, lemon sole and the schnitzel. The food was great and the portion sizes decent.
Given the reputation of this restaurant, I expected exceptional service. However, we had some issues with our meals not arriving at the same time. Although the staff were unable to deal with these issues professionally, the manager was lovely and discounted our bill accordingly. He then checked back a number of times to check everything was up to scratch.
Save it for a special occasion unless you are ready to splash the cash! For 6 of us, the bill (with a couple of bottles of wine) came to around £300 (and that was discounted!).
