Shocking customer service. Would not accept my reservation request as they had no availability for my groupon/ special offer, even though I had already paid for the voucher. Further the voucher was still within its expiry date which was 5 days away, and yet they claim to have no availability at all - which I am sure is a lie... More

Two couple had the three course meal with choices. Two people had the Linguine App with white truffles, a 40 pound surcharge, yikes!! However both found it exception and well worth the cost. Three courses, two bottles of wine, after meal drinks was 700 pounds. Then the exchange, thats what hurts.

Our visit was a gift from a dear friend for our anniversary. We were welcomed in a warm professional but friendly way. We were taken to a table in the bar area while they prepped everything. We were shown a drinks menu and made our choice. Within minutes we were shown to our table and introduced to our waiter. My... More

Fantistic location with an astonishing view, great food and the best staff you can want, professional and very friendly at the same time. The day we went to the restaurant was my birthday and after the dinner they brought us a "happy birthday" cake.

I came to Galvin at Windows with my girlfriend on 30th November 2016 on the recommendation of a friend. We have tried several Michelin starred restaurants and I have to say this is one of the best we've been to. We recieved a very warm and friendly welcome.

The staff in the bar area is ridiculously bad, it is obvious that they are inexperienced and are trying too hard. Even older staff wasn't behaving as well as they should. The host was rude (a blonde British guy with beard), and seemed unhappy/uncomfortable with my presence, perhaps because I'm really young. On the other hand, he was obviously nicer... More

Friendly staff, lovely atmosphere and good tasty food. Being on a high floor overlooking London is a bonus. Had the set lunch menu which included a Bellini. They also give you a postcard that you can send to anywhere in the world... a nice touch that really does work. Been twice now and will return.

As a local resident I had booked Galvin at Windows many weeks in advance as I wanted something special for a Birthday/Anniversary special dinner, and I know it gets very booked up.

Just had dinner in this place with some colleagues from work. Very nice location with a great view from the 28th floor over the city. Staff is really friendly and takes care. The food is great but maybe a bit on the "too fancy" side. I prefer a bit less adventurous mixtures. But again quality is good, nothing to complain... More

This is our second visit to Galvins as we enjoyed the tasting menu so much on our previous visit. This time round the food was good but there didn't appear to be any surprises or any course that has left a lasting memory.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
