Wiltons combines a modern philosophy on service with all that is traditionally British to create the perfect dining experience.

“Don't knock traditional when its this good!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Some of the newer London restaurants could learn a thing or two from Wiltons, both in terms of the level of service and efficiency and also in terms of food quality and the menu choice. The smoked eel to start was excellent as was the avocado and crab. For the main meal we had kidneys and bacon with jersey potatoes and grilled plaice with cauliflower cheese and all were first class. The relaxed and sedate atmosphere suited our occasion but if you want a buzzy fun atmosphere this is not the place to go - try Langans or The Wolseley instead.

Dear ollie1952,
Thank you for your review. We believe that with the very best of produce we source, it is sometimes better to keep it simple with the preparation of the dishes. Wiltons recently won Best Front of House at the Tatler Restaurant Awards 2014 and are so proud of all of our team so thank you for mentioning how pleased you were with both the food and the service.
Please visit us again soon.
Yours sincerely,
Alison McLennan

“An old standby not to be missed”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

If you have never experienced Wiltons in London, you owe it to yourself to have a go. They understand the meaning of quality food and quality service and as a result attract a very pleasant clientele as well. I have had 25 year's experience with this place and never even once been disappointed. Fish is a specialty as is game but if neither appeals there is always something else as well.

The wine list will suit all tastes and spending preferences.

“Superb Resturant”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Great atmosphere, excellent food. This was our last night in London after a 10 day vacation in Paris and London, so we wanted to have a nice meal with good service. We had excellent food and personable wait staff. We could not have asked for a better resturant or a more delicious meal. We left London with great memories, and this is one of the. I highly recommend this resturant as a must, if you are looking for a classy upscale place to eat.

“Old Style Quality”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We recently had lunch and then a dinner party on a special occasion with close family and friends. Wiltons were fantastic in the care and attention they gave us and nothing could be faulted. They provided the highest quality of service. The ambience of the restaurant reflects traditional quality and all the staff were friendly and efficient. Wiltons makes eating out a thoroughly enjoyable experience and of course the food and wine match the high standards of that whole experience. It is important to have time to enjoy being there and to be aware that such quality does not come cheap.
