A late lunch on a Sunday late in September. A very warm welcome, impeccable service, vibrant, lively atmosphere, superb food and great value for money. We stayed for 3.5 hours and only left in order to catch our respective trains home - we could have stayed for hours more. Bravo!

I had booked to go to the wolseley as a treat with my friend while in London for the weekend but it turned out to be a big disappointment. We had booked to go for lunch just after noon. At the start it was very nice, lovely place inside, very posh but it went downhill from there. We ordered two smoked salmon lunches with a side of chips. Out came the salmon but no chips, had to ask and even then the waitor never let us know what was happening after he checked, they came out 15 mins after our salmon had arrived. Because it is quite posh, you pay for a cover charge and service charge of 12.5% is included. For this they pour your water etc, which they didn't do. After out mains, we were given the dessert menu, the waiter took 15 mins to come back to us, when the menus had been closed for 10 to show him we were ready to order, we were ignored. Then I ordered a simple mint tea,..... Which tool at least another 10-15 mins to arrive. All very slow and disappointing. I complained when the bill arrived and the service charge was removed which was one good thing they offered to do. My recommendation, do not go, it's very overrated and not worth the money at all!!

My mother and I had tea at approximately 4:00 PM. The food was excellent but the waiter that took our order was quite snobbish. The seating arrangement in the restaurant was quite close and we were seated next to two women who were quite loud and we could not enjoy our meal due to their rude manner.

2pm Friday, perfect business lunch. Choice and quality. Service on Friday slower than usual.

This place has gone downhill since I last went there. Charging a 'Lunch Cover Charge' and then adding a service charge of 12.5%, and then on top stating Discretionary Service Not Included is just taking it too far. For all the tourist they are giving London a bad name. I would not go back again.

A dependably excellent venue

Had an early Sunday lunch, restaurant busy and buzzy when we arrived. Helpful front of house staff. Food delicious though couldn't always get the attention of the many waiters. Great for a quick bite but noticed that people don't stay for ages. Its not the place to go for a leisurely lunch with a group of friends but would definitely go again!!

Easily booked and staff could not have been more tactfully attentive

I visited for afternoon tea with my three children aged 18,15,7. The staff were excellent and made us feel very welcome despite the rest of the restaurant being filled with predominantly adult groups. Excellent experience and we will return.
