Cosy restaurant, attentive service, amenable atmosphere, well presented food which lived up to expectation as far as lobster & steaks go. All in all a dining experience worth repeating but just missing a little of the gastronomic magic to fulfil 5star rating.

    Booked the steak,lobster and champagne deal and felt like a second class citizen because of it. The service was atrocious and food cold.
    Was sat in a side room which was good as the music so loud in main part but it meant you could never get the staffs attention. We were not even offered a menu for starters and had to find the staff to order some wine. My steak was undercooked but portions nice and tasty but cold. Wine was lovely. No waitress came to check how our food was so I couldn't send it back and couldn't ask for condiments. Managed to get hold of a dessert menu. Specifically asked no custard and it came swimming in it! Asked for the bill. 30 minutes later with empty glasses still no sign so physically had to go and find someone! Massive dissapointment!

    Quite dissappointed to be honest. Despite reading reviews ahead and preparing for some noise from the bar we did not expect to be sitting right by the bar with a lound group of Americans right next to us. Next it took some 45 min for the steak and lobster to arrive and once we tucked in it turned out not impressive either. The lobster was bit rubbery and the steak nothing special. I would not go again. It sounds like a deal money wise but if you really care about good food it's better to pay bit more somewhere else.

    It shows how important service is. Whether my impressions were dented by; having to point out my name on the reservation list, been shown to the wrong table, being asked how I wanted my steak within 60 secs of sitting down, no menu to see sides, not being given one of the sides that were ordered, on requesting it again being told it was under the salad! having to ask for sauces, on asking for mustard being given mayo I am unsure. Perhaps a steak knife for steak on a steak promo would be a good idea. Overall not blown away.

    The Mayfair Exchange is a Wine Bar situated in the heart of London, Mayfair. On arrival we were greeted by a very loud, noisy crowd having Thursday is the new Friday night drinks. This would have been great if that's what we were out for but it wasn't. Anyway we were rather relieved to be led to an extremely small (3 tables) break out nook (my partner called it the claustrophobic tunnel) that was rather cosy. Anyway we had the Bookatable - 1/2 Lobster, 8oz Steak and Champagne combo. The Lobster (no lobster cracker or pick were provided initially, only when the waitress saw me struggling to get the goodness out of the claw did she provide a cracker) was ever so slightly overcooked and I ordered a Steak cooked medium which came as well done. I didn't complain as I was hungry and I thought my partner's supper would be well and truly over and done if I had to wait for a new one. As the meat quality was good I did not need my "Jaws Molars" to execute chewing. Perhaps I had lowered my usual standards for the evening by not expecting too much!!! I don't know should I have expected more for a Lobster, Steak & Champagne supper at a cost of £25. Anyway I am a good natured individual and we even left a tip.....Would I go again?...yes but only for the Champagne not for the food.

    Friendly and cosy. Helpful, attentive staff. Delicious champagne. Really great steak and chips. Lobster was disappointing.

    Very enjoyable night - good service and excellent food poses very good value when eating the lobstar steak and glass of champagne.

    Very noisey bar adjacent to dining area. Food good, champagne not as chilled as I would like. Great for party crowd but not for intimate dining

    Went on the steak & lobster with champagne deal for £25 which was excellent value for money. The portions were generous, food was perfectly cooked & service faultless. Would definitely recommend
