Awful, awful service. We waited and hour between our starter and main course. When the steak arrived it was not cooked to my liking so had to send it back. Very poor.

On a trip to London to visit a few galleries we thought we would treat ourselves to afternoon tea, to help banish the January blues, so we opted to go to the Podium. Nice and bright restaurant with friendly staff, who were attentive but not...More

My main impression of the restaurant is a menu that tries too hard to be modern (with the associated price tag) and primarily for hotel guests. The food ranges from £10 for starters/desserts to mid £20s-30s for mains. The only dish we were very impressed...More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed
thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of
London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is
haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is
vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic
streets will reveal that Michelin stars and
chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
