Diners can indulge in some luxurious champagne and choose from a wide range of distinct blends of tea, imported by specialist tea suppliers from around the world. The Waldorf, known as The Waldorf Hilton since January 2004, has an illustrious history and rich heritage dating back to its opening in 1908. Set in the heart of London's theatre land, close to Covent Garden, the hotel has attracted a string of stars from all over the world. Gertrude Lawrence, Sir Thomas Beecham, Elizabeth Taylor, Pavarotti, Pierce Brosnan and Dame Judi Dench are just a handful of show business icons that have stayed at the hotel. Open on select Sundays, Palm Court is the spacious, elegant and versatile heart of The Waldorf Hilton. It features an historic, impeccably styled interior, with fabulously restored balustrades lending an air of chic decadence and sophistication. Afternoon Tea Dance offers contemporary afternoon tea with a variety of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with Devonshire clotted cream and strawberry jam, delicate homemade pastry cakes and choice of many teas and infusions, a frothy cappuccino or a black coffee. A live 5-piece band will entertain with all the ballroom classics, while guests dance away on a Sunday afternoon in the historical Palm Court. All this is available for £49.00 per person only.

“family night out”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

From the very beginning we had appalling service from the male waiter which was a shame as the female waiter was lovely and the food was good. We were also over charged on our drinks bill and although we spoke to several managers and filled out a refund form. We are still waiting for the refund two months later. We have had better meals and service in the restaurants round the corner in Covent garden

“Our anniversary dinner”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We booked this restaurant for our anniversary dinner, using the amazon.local £59 for dinner for two with a glass of champagne each. The food was superb. The service was courteous - thank you, Daniel. However, the restaurant lacks ambience, somewhat disappointing for a celebratory meal. Everything else - excellent.

“Arvids Vilcans best waiter”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

I went to the homage restaurant last week wednesday for a afternoon tea surprise birthday treat,the lady at reception wasn't so welcoming,the restaurant itself was beautiful decorated. The service we received from our waiter Arvids Vilcans was outstanding he was welcoming had a great smile. We my friend told him on arrival that it was my birthday so towards the end he brought out a little cake with a candle and happy birthday beautiful written in chocolate on the plate which was a very nice surprise.

We had a 3 course dinner and champagne courtesy of Amazon .com and we were not disappointed...Six of us including 'Lovely Lisa' enjoyed a really lovely meal.Fish cakes were tasty and the lamb was cooked to perfection-creamy mash exquisite...
The deserts were delicious
a great selection thumbs up for the passion fruit & lime cheesecake and the bitter chocolate mouse tart with honeycomb ice-cream tickled the taste buds of a few...
We would like to express our thanks to Daniel our waiter, he was attentive welcoming and had exceptional customer service...
All in all a wonderful evening we will return again sooner rather than later...

“Lovely!”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

We had an amazon local deal for the Walford, for a 3 course meal and glass of champagne which was great value!
The choice we had was plenty and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals, especially the lamb main course. My only grumble would be that there were some pieces of bone left in the pancetta wrapped around my asparagus starter.
We paid extra for some vegetables and wine but the total bill was excellent value.
The waiting stuff were charming and attentive. However, I did find the maitre d's attitude slightly changed once she realised we were dining on a voucher - she was lovely to the people in front of us but she didn't even offer to take our coats, we had to ask her too. Felt she was a little stuck up but it didn't ruin our experience.

The restaurant is beautiful. It was a little quiet when we were there as we dined fairly early (half 7).

Would love to come again and eat off the a la carte menu for a special treat!
