My husband & I visted HIX Mayfair on Saturday night for dinner. The staff were very professional & friendly. We requested a move to a different table & this was dealt with immediately with no fuss. The food was nice - starters very good. I agree with a previous review regarding the fillet steak on the bone - good but have had better for less cost.
We also ate breakfast in the restaurant on Sunday morning & the attentive and considerate staff were lovely.

We went for Sunday lunch on 25th May for our wedding anniversary, first we visited the bar, Donovan's and enjoyed a bottle of champagne and some lovely nibbles. Then we went to our table at Hix all relaxed and the staff couldn't have been more attentive and helpful. We had some delicious food which was presented beautifully. The food was all delicious and we would definitely recommend to our friends and for future visits for us. Can't wait to go again, the attention to detail and service was superb, just as I like it, they were there when you needed them and disappeared when you didn't, taking care of their clients. The restaurant is nicely furnished and we loved the booth we were shown to, again care being taken to ensure we were happy with our table. I have attached lots of pics too. Only negative if there is one, the champagne and wines were very pricey but hey we were in Mayfair so what should we have expected. It was a wedding anniversary I will always remember. Champagne starting at £78 and red wine starting at £53 a bottle. But you only live once.

I have used some of the private dining rooms at this hotel before but today was my first visit to the restaurant. The dining room occupies a lovely space, high ceilings and plenty of light and space makes for a very enjoyable atmosphere.
Lovely seasonal menu with plenty of good UK produce, service was attentive but not over the top. Most delicious lunch of pan fried sweetbreads followed by some lovely cod.
Looking forward to my next visit.

We had steak when we came and it was very nice, although have had better for a lot less money, Service was great and the sides where good. The starts where superb.
After our meal we went downstairs for some cocktails and these where really good.
I would come back again.

I've been to Hix's original Dorset coastal retail and and tonight as my first visit to any of his London restaurants - and I wasn't disappointed. Tasty British meats and fish served in beautiful classy surroundings of Browns Hotel - with exemplary service. 2 courses each and 2 bottles of wine for a total of £160 - not cheap, but well worthwhile.
