A location with stunning views across the west end of London, a great menu - which never fails to impress - and attentive staff. A really knowledgeable Sommelier who helps navigate the extensive wine list. Definitely somewhere for a romantic evening, business lunch or entertaining friends from abroad,

I visited yesterday to celebrate a girlfriends 60th, there were 8 of us and we had a wonderful time, delicious food, cocktails, wine. Great view and friendly super service. They organised the most delicious birthday cake, mango and raspberry.

This restaurant is on the 28th floor of the London Hilton on Park lane and it has everything for a celebration! This lovely restaurant has double aspect views all over London (our table overlooked Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey).
We had an Amazon special voucher menu @ £29 per head which included a Bellini cocktail.
The food was lovely (but small portions adequate for us but maybe a bit small for a man!)
The the waiters were excellent, friendly and attentive. We had a nice bottle of white wine (sorry but I can't remember which one) and coffee served with chocolates. (our extras with service came to £67 which we thought was fair given the level of enjoyment).
There was a group of about twenty people celebrating a wedding, they really looked like they were having a wonderful time!
If you don't want to eat here you can have cocktails in the adjacent bar...Highly recommended for a very nice experience especially if you get bargain vouchers like us.

I have been coming to Windows for many years and always amazed at how fabulous each visit is.

I don't even know where to start the food, quality, service and the reconigition I receive, even though I don't visit that often. 5***** every time I have visited.

Andrew and his team make you feel so special but they are also not overbearing which is so clever and many restaurants fail here. Never rushed and they also go along at your speed.

Such a great choice of foods and wine. 5* lunch or dinner whichever you choose and also has excellent views of London so when booking try for a window table. So much better than the Shard!!

Definitely 1 of the best places to go in London for a meal!

Well done to you all at Windows!!

Best regards

Simon Sherlock

Wanted to eat here for a while so chose it for my birthday, great sunny evening and the views were amazing. Service was good with polite staff, but not as attentive or 'special' as elsewhere. Our party of 4 opted for the tasting menu and wine pairing, we had quite a wait between some courses, food was very good but not memorable and the wait detracted somewhat, the quantity of wine poured was not was much as at other restaurants and the selection not as special as I would have expected. All in all good but it was the company i was with that made the night and not the food or experience. Bar after was convent but very busy and service slow and poor with incorrect drinks being served.

Personally my partner and I really like Launceston Place and wished we had returned there instead in terms of food and service.
