Restaurant description

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.

    It was very good. I do not have anything to add to previous reviews which echoed with our experience, except that my friend had a gluten intolerance and they were able to provide a full gluten free meal which he enjoyed very much.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
