Bringing its acclaimed concept to London, Smith & Wollensky is the UK’s first opening for the acclaimed American steakhouse. S&W is housed in the Art Deco Adelphi building just off the Strand, and boasts an on-site butcher and a dry-aging room to the rear of the restaurant.

The signature dish on the Smith & Wollensky menu is the 24oz USDA prime dry-aged rib-eye, with many other cuts of offer. Other popular dishes include the shellfish platter, and herb-crusted yellowfin tuna. Try the apple tarte fine with salted caramel sauce for dessert: all puddings also come with a suggested wine pairing.

Featuring an abundance of leather and wood, S&W’S design conjures the classic American dining room. Spread over 2 floors and boasting 2 glitzy bars, gourmet ‘snacks’ include truffled mac n’ cheese, or oysters and sirloin carpaccio.

Smith & Wollensky in London boasts an array of private dining rooms, an expansive list of reworked cocktails, and daily butcher’s specials. Find it a 3-minute walk from Charing Cross Station.

    The staff are welcoming and friendly making the whole dining experience very enjoyable. Having eaten at the Sand W in New York we were really looking forward to the meal here and it didn’t disappoint. We only had one small complaint. The carpaccio of squid and chorizo which we shared is absolutely tiny !! We thought it was hilarious when we saw it but overall we loved this restaurant. We shared the sirloin steak ,which is huge, and had creamed spinach and Mac & cheese to go with it. I had messaged the restaurant beforehand to tell them that it was my wife’s retirement tat day and they prepared a small dessert with a lovely message iced on the plate.

    Stunning restaurant with so many features, Tiffany glass, Art Deco painting, Tiled flooring. Every inch is polished and immaculate. The Bar service is exceptional as is the Restaurant Service and the food and wine. Known for delicious steaks - but the Steak and Kidney pudding and the fish are great too. The Manager, Richard Chebbi, was charming as usual, and takes such pride in the Restaurant, the product and the staff. Looking after every customers individual needs and making them feel special.

    I booked this deal as seemed to be of great value and wasn't disappointed at all, especially by the service and the food. Food was delicious from starters to desserts with the steak being the star of the evening. Staff was especially friendly and helpful - especially our waiter Spyros who was particularly helpful in recommending wines and accommodating our changes on the menu. Overall, a very satisfactory evening

    Great experience as always. Best steak in London and fantastic service. Good choices of wine.

    Over hyped export from the States. We booked via Bookatable the 3 course meal, on arrival, we were bluntly told that the offer is only valid before 6:30, we were seated at 6:35. Overall, the wine list is impressive, oysters were fresh, burgers and ribs were just fine. Took another 15 mins for someone to take our order for puddings. Keylime pie was divine. It is a shame the service is so lackluster and they genuinely do not care about diner experience.

    My first impression was a lovely looking restaurant. However it was overall a bad experience. They said they would allow us red wine instead of the champagne offered with the deal, but at the end charged us £23 for two glasses of Malbec! Had they been going to charge would they not have allowed us to choose the wine, and been honest about it????? The food was good on the whole, but the fish option was not what they had advertised on the menu. I am really disappointed as I would like to go back there to try their steaks. However, I will never go back now. Very upset

    Front of house was grumpy. Nice bar with good cocktails. Service was satisfactory but Waiter was ignorant of American wines-by luck we got a good one, Wine over priced. There is a Pinot Noir section but non from Washington. Starters were fine. My "ribs" were awful-no rib and pre-cooked. Overall too expensive.
