modern but fine dining in or near mayfair

Looking for family dinner somewhere upmarket and special but modern, for daughter's 21st and sister. Staying at Claridges but don't want to eat there as we are 'doing a/noon tea' there on following day. Tried Maze last year but although great for us parents the 2 girls thought it a bit too fancy. Want stylish but not silver service.

Are they fish eaters? How about Scott's of Mayfair? Or Bentley's? I highly recommend both.

Seconded Bentleys, I love it, or try Corrigans Mayfair.

thanks for those - Bentleys looks very good, I like R Corrigan a lot too. One daughter is very into fish the other not so maybe a little tricky cos she's the one with the birthday but the menu has lots of choice so may be worthwhile.

Bentley's doesn't have to be fish, there are a couple of meat dishes on the main menu, and as well as those there are several daily specials which are meat... your waiter will take your non-seafood fan daughter through them of course. If you opt to dine in the less formal, more buzzy oyster bar, they are displayed on a blackboard at the bar. I had some awesome roasted pork belly with cauliflower puree in there last month for someone's birthday lunch.

Of course, Corrigans Mayfair is not seafood based at all (rather it has a few seafood dishes on top of the meat main courses) so that might keep everyone happy.
