Attended a Christmas party and food was very well presented and service was excellent. We also had breakfast in the morning which was delicious.

Brilliant service, our waiter was very knowledgeable, helpful and personable. Enjoyed the sandwiches and cakes and had the offer of seconds. Thank you to Kirsty Hart for all your assistance, a genuinely nice person to deal with.

See my main review for the overall hotel - I found the staff very helpful from start to finish. There was an excellent and varied choice of cuisine. This was well prepared, arrived quickly, it was well cooked and very tasty - in fact, embarrassed to say I'd never had caviar until now, and you what - it's not going... More

We visited The Aviator with friends in November, knowing full well it was going to be more expensive than your average meal out. We started in the Sky Bar with cocktails which were fabulous!

8 ladies enjoying a birthday lunch. Festive lunch is a new menu just introduced. I ordered Confit duck; poached plaice fillet. The duck was ok cauliflower veloute was bland and no pickled cauliflower was on the dish. But the poached plaice with pommes dauphine and crab & salmon mousse was sensational. The cheese platter was also delicious but the nut... More

Been here a couple of times for special occasions. Love the bar area but feel the restaurant is a bit of a let down in comparison. The decor is a bit brown and bland (where as the bar has that great Howard Hughes/ Aviator feel) and just seems to lack atmosphere). Worth going to the top of the stairs and... More

We decided to try the Aviators as it came highly recommended. I called several days ahead as wanted to try the taster menu with the taster wine too, I have a wheat intolerance so wanted to make sure this would be fine, I also mentioned it was my birthday.

Had the Set Menu, which was rather limited in choice and small servings. The extras were rather expensive (£5 surcharge for Cheese and biscuits!) The food was good and well presented. I think it is a little overpriced for what you get.

Had a meal here back in 2010. Was really good. The wines I thought were a bit overly priced. Menu items were attractive and exquisite. At the time the dinner décor was kind of intimate, not sure if it's the same... felt a bit out of place when dining on my own. It was quite busy at the time which... More

Description
Created by TAG group in 2008, Aviator is one of the most striking design hotels of recent times, its innate style binding the timeless glamour of aviation with seductive interiors and ultimate comfort.The elegant Brasserie is home to classic seasonal cuisine, inspired by fresh, locally produced foods. Cream leather armchairs, six seater banquettes and light filled spaces create the perfect setting to while away time with family and friends, and in the evening the addition of glowing lanterns lends a more intimate ambience. Within the Brasserie sit two of the hotel’s private dining rooms, exemplifying the allure of the dining experience. Created for special occasions and private meetings, these are the ideal home for a new 5 course Tasting Menu, served accompanied by paired wines selected by Philippe Larue of l'Art du Vin.
