An exclusive hideaway seating just 22 diners, The Oval at The Wellesley Hotel pays homage to the finest traditions of Italian cuisine. The stunning Art Deco dining room conjures images of a true Italian family feast, with glossy marble and smooth, pastel pink leather adding a touch of luxury.

Alongside gourmet pizzas and sumptuous meats from the grill, indulge in bold signature seafood dishes from The Oval menu, like homemade cod brandade ravioli, or salt-crusted wild sea bass with seasonal vegetables. Decadent Italian desserts include dark chocolate fondant with crunchy hazelnut, or classic tiramisu.

The Wellesley Hotel in London also hosts live music sessions in its 1920s-style Jazz Lounge.

In one of London’s most luxurious boutique hotels, The Oval Restaurant in Knightsbridge is a 2-minute walk from Hyde Park Corner Tube Station.

    I had the most fantastic evening at the Wellesley. We started with drinks at the Crystal Bar and loved our cocktails, I had a strawberry martini. Then we had dinner at the oval restaurant where the food was delicious and service impeccable. They brought a special dessert plate out with happy anniversary on it. The ambience was great and design beautiful. One of the best meals I've had and would highly recommend.

    Very nice food, great service, but the atmostphere didn't quite represent the "official" photograph. It is a rather smaller dining room, and the lights were a little dim for my liking. Visited on a Monday night and it was very quiet to say the least, however the food and service was fantastic so I have to commend them on that.

    Thoughtful menu to appeal to all tastes. Especially enjoyed the guinea fowl.
    Exquisite and highly professional service.
    Lavish decor, in keeping with the beautiful building.

    I have dined at The Oval twice in one week it was so good. The food was excellent, the room lovely, the staff attentive. On one occasion i was with a friend in a wheelchair and the staff really went out of their way to help with facilities.

    The Oval Restaurant is beautiful and a stunning atmosphere for a special dinner. My table of 4 all had the 5 course tasting menu, which we all agreed was slightly underwhelming. I only rated 2 out of the 5 courses. When you have a tasting menu each course should excite your palette. But unfortunately some of the courses were just boring and bland. The highlights for me was the duck ravioli and the after eight desert. Service was good and very attentive and we had a lovey evening however the tasting menu needs some work especially for a £65 price tag excluding drinks/wine.

    Lovely meal in opulent surroundings with excellent staff. Service was a tad rushed with our food order being asked for before our pre-dinner cocktail had arrived. As this is a restaurant in a very high end hotel it does have a different atmosphere to a stand-alone restaurant. There was no buzz or and no walk-ins off the street meant it was super quiet which is not necessarily a bad thing as we could hear ourselves speak ! The jazz singer and pianist in the other hotel restaurant could be clearly heard which was a bonus. It is a very small dining area so if it was busy it would have had more atmosphere. There is a dress code and quite strict rule on getting to the restaurant on time which was odd as there were only another 4 customers in there when we arrived so not sure what they would only have held the table for more than 15 mins.....the wine was excellent. Highly recommend the Viognier on the short but interesting wine list for the 3 course set menu. There Is a far more extensive wine list with drinks by the glass which we were offered for dessert drinks. Lovely coffee. Ladies loos a bit smelly.....

    A small, pleasant restaurant within the hotel where the food was of a high standard and the service attentive and good, without being intrusive.
    The one downside was that some of the other guests were allowed to use the place as a posing "photographic studio" to the detriment of the other guests' enjoyment of the ambience.
