The architecture is beautiful but I didn't rate my dining experience - we were positioned in a forgotten corner and the afternoon tea wasn't great. Although I hear it's a great place to go for a fancy breakfast!

When you are visiting London, you must at least once go for high tea, and when you do, the Wolseley is one of the best places to do it. This is London at its finest. They serve amazing finger sandwiches (with the crusts cut off - hoorah!) - cakes, scones with clotted cream (one of the tastiest substances known to man). It is a bit on the posh side (aka its fancy) - with prices to match, but worth every penny. This is also a great place to come for a business lunch or breakfast, or a night out before hitting the theater.

Perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Centrally located near Green Park tube. Gorgeous setting. Once an old Rolls Royce car dealership the high ceilings and luxurious light fixtures provide a dramatic and chic backdrop for the celebrities , socialites and media types who dine here. Book in advance to ensure a table. However, know that they always hold 20 percent of tables aside during the day for walk ins. A simple brasserie menu but everything is perfect. Endive salad...yum! Chicken with dumpling soup..devine. Service is great. Great service, though expect a bit of attitude at the door. Reasonably priced. Definitely a must for visitors.

A visit to the Wolseley is a must The location is a restored luxury car showroom from the 1920s. This place has fantastic atmosphere and very good food -- a mix of British, Continental and American. We went for brunch and loved it though I'm sure it is good at other times as well.

In a very strange twist of fate, I ended up eating here twice in three days a few years back. And I'd no idea it was one of the top restaurants in London, but I see why. I'm a sucker for any restaurant my grandparents would have loved, and this place would have been their favorite in London, I'm sure of it. Salmon with lobster cream sauce, a caviar menu, steak tartare and escargot? If there's a heaven, they're eating there nightly. It's actually not as pricey as you'd think, but the atmosphere is posh, so stand up straight.

Occupying a former banking hall, this place was launched by Chris Corbin and Jeremy King, the same pair responsible for The Ivy and Le Caprice before these changed hands. As you'd expect from such an illustrious duo there's an excellent all day menu in the grand brasserie tradition. Personally I find the 1,000-covers-a-day restaurant is too industrial and lacks the intimacy of Corbin & King's earlier ventures. But the food is reliable and the place is a firm favourite for smarter business breakfasts or lunches. Service is a signature strength. If there are six or more of you going, try booking the private room.
