Ormer Mayfair is overseen by celebrated Michelin star chef Shaun Rankin. This stunning art deco inspired interior of the restaurant, located in the heart of Mayfair, is awash with 1930s glamour with leather banquette seating, dark oak wall panelling and hand-crafted chevron glass screens. Inspiration for the food comes from Rankin’s acclaimed Jersey restaurant that has held a Michelin star since 2013.

An amazing experience at Ormer. Everything from start to finish was fantastic. I have recommended to many friends and colleagues that they try this place. I would also recommend that you arrive early and try Manetta's bar inside the hotel. Great cocktails and a beautiful venue.

My second visit which was as stunning as the first. Understandably you pay for this standard but it would be nice if the staff could be a little less attentive. I will be back and recommend this restaurant to anyone wishing a brilliant meal.

Lovely restaurant and food with excellent, friendly service. The staff here were great and the Monday special was very good value. We were here for a family birthday and the restaurant brought out a lovely slice of cake with a candle. It greatly surpassed expectations. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed a lovely evening with friends from the US. The staff were so welcoming, friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and we even had pudding which is always a good sign that the food was good. The apple crumble desert was sublime! Will definitely go back.

Took my fiance here for a Birthday meal. The entire experience from the point of arrival was excellent. Every dish was impeccable, in terms of presentation, size and subtle layering of complex flavours. The ambience was understated but luxurious. The staff are friendly, knowledgable and attentive without being disruptive and even organised a lovely small birthday surprise after dessert, carefully checking before to make sure it was appropriate. We had a cocktail beforehand in their very cosy bar next to the restaurant and took the champagne accompanied set menu. By the time you've each had 3 courses, 3 fairly generous glasses and two half-bottles of house champagne to take home, £69 actually starts to feel exceptionally good value for money.

With cocktails and a couple of set menu supplements, a meal for 2 came out just over £200 total, which may feel expensive for some, this being the only reason for the 4* Value rating. For me, as a one-off special occasion, I certainly didn't feel short-changed in any way. Given the quality of the cuisine, I'm sure it is only a matter of time before they earn a Michelin Star or two.

Cannot recommend highly enough.

We had a wonderful dinner at Ormer Mayfair to celebrate a special occasion. We thought the food was simply excellent - unpretentious and full of flavour. We were also particularly impressed that all of the plates on the menu could have been adapted to work for one of our party with a gluten allergy, including the desserts which was especially appreciated! The service was also impeccable - as attentive as you could wish. Overall a truly lovely evening. We look forward to visiting again.

I never write reviews, so simply the fact that I am should tell you something about Ormer.

We had dinner at Le Meurice, in Paris Tuesday evening - a great 2 star place, which we really enjoyed, an amazing experience.

Then, we had lunch at Ormer Thursday. I'd rate Ormer higher, not just for value for money, but outright better food, originality, and ambience.

It is more relaxed, and less formal but that works for us, the food is outstanding, the wine list is good, and won't leave you leaving txt messages for you bank manager.

Truly great

An outstanding lunch: beautifully crafted food, impeccable service, lush decor. Quiet, despite the occasional rumble of the tube underneath. Good value including the wine and extras. A gem of a venue, hiding almost in plain sight!

Really excellent, creative, dramatically presented food—absolutely everything that fine dining should be: a feast for the senses. Combined with the intimate ambience and excellent, attentive service, this ought to be an instant "highly recommended", but for one serious shortcoming: the portions sizes were comically tiny. The starter was barely a mouthful, and the main perhaps three. I appreciate that good food ought be savoured, but one should not need to fill up on (the admittedly delicious and plentiful) bread in order to avoid leaving hungry. This is a restaurant that leaves you wanting more—in both the best and worst possible ways.

Can one say OUTSTANDING! Our very first trip to Ormer Mayfair was for our 42nd anniversary and WOW. Everything we expected was met: food was complex, flavors beyond belief and of course the presentations were artistic. Our wait staff matched the kitchen staff for service and attentiveness.

We will be highly recommending Ormer Mayfair to our Foodie Friends and we will be back on our next trip to London. Probably even stay at the Fleming Hotel !!!!

Lunchtime menu was excellent. Best meal we have eaten in a long time. Quality and flavour of the food is amazing. Every ingredient plays a role, no unessary show-off items but just stunning visually and everything tastes like the best version of itself. Compares well against Michelin star level competition.

Service is friendly, very professional and precise but never stuffy or getting in the way of a relaxing world class dining experience.

Will come back for sure...

Service second to none, friendly but extremely efficient.
Beautiful dining room but lacked a bit of a buzz on the day we visited.
A la carte menus were great for meat and quite good for vegan. Food was delicious, clever and beautifully executed, one gripe was with our main course risotto, which was the size of a small starter. Very surprised to see such a small portion, especially on the a la carte menu; would be forgiven on the tasting menu.

Overall a lovely experience

We were very impressed with Ormer. The service and food were excellent and tasted wonderful.
The only negative is that the tables are slightly too close to each other - we moved from the first table we were given. We would recommend it and will definitely go back.

Our visit was most enjoyable. It was my wife's birthday and I had selected the set menu with three glasses of champagne and a gift of two half bottles of champagne. The staff were courteous and my wife was made to feel special. A birthday cake was provide for free as was coffee. We were invited to view the kitchen although we declined as we just enjoyed the experience in the restaurant. The food was terrific and came with explanations about each course. A truly wonderful experience.

Simply marvelous dining experience, from someone who has dined at Michelin starred restaurants the world over. The staff were exceptional, Marcel is a consummate professional. The space is cozy with ambiance galore. Dined with my wife to celebrate our 20 year anniversary and everyone treated us like royalty. Really a remarkable experience at a very reasonable price, especially by London (Mayfair, Chelsea, Belgravia) standards.

Only complaints: we had at least 5 people ask us if we wanted water when we arrived! The service was a little over the top as it interrupted us very often throughout the date as there are too many waiters that come to u for different reasons, also they knew it was my mans birthday yet no one said happy birthday or sang?! Even though we were in the private room! Champagne was not chilled yet when we arrived even though I pre-arranged it so we had to wait for that.
Otherwise the staff really were great and went out of their way! So I’m face four stars is needed not three as I gave! However it was very difficult to keep our conversation going when we kept getting interrupted so often by different waiters! Otherwise thank you

We needed to continue an international business meeting into the evening and over dinner, so we made a last minute booking after searching for nice restaurants in the vicinity of Green Park with vegan menus. What a find; we loved every course, the service was exemplary and the ambiance was perfect. We successfully concluded the meeting with an evening to remember for everyone in our party. Our thanks to all of the staff for an outstanding experience.
