This was my first visit since the arrival of a new team. When I arrived about 12. 05 p.m. the place was desert and when I left about 1.07 p.m. only three other tables with a total of five guests, including two very attractive female Spanish ladies, were occupied. I took the cheapest lunch menu (3 courses) at 40 euros... More

Went for the lunch tasting menu for friend's birthday. The tasting menu is really nice - the food was cooked in a high standard. It was quiet on Saturday, so feel you almost have the feeling that having the whole place to ourselves :)

This place has some of the trappings of a Michelin-starred eatery - obsequious staff, tasting menu, opulent setting - but it doesn't make the grade. Service was really slow, portions were tiny, flavours disappointing. The bill was certainly at Michelin-Mayfair levels. Glad I wasn't paying. Wouldn't recommend.

Extravagant, stupendous. However, they have lost wow effect, or I have grown up since the last time I was here, so they cannot buy me anymore. All in all, worth, will come back. Just because of the 'being at home' feeling.

Lunch on Easter Saturday. The room was quiet and lacked a little atmosphere which is the only reason I haven't rated it as excellent. The food was outstanding particularly the rabbit. The staff are friendly and efficient particularly the lady sommelier who recommended a very nice wine. Well done to both the kitchen brigade and the front of house.

Visited on a Monday night in 20** with a couple of mates to celebrate my leaving work. Both food and lots of wine were memorable(ish). Famously fussy eaters had no complaints - we will be back. Hope you enjoyed it, Ted and Bob!

We had the tasting menu which was good with a few stand out dishes. However, personally I much preferred the Ledbury where we dined a few weeks later. Special mention must be made to the great service we received. A friend turned up to say hi, whilst we were eating dessert and he was shortly presented with a soufflé also!

An almost faultless lunch. Fantastic. A lengthy tasting menu where every course was strong, even the deserts which are often the downfall. Its rare, even at other starred restaurants, that every course is great.Having been concerned with the recent change of chef we were not disappointed.

My wife and I have been regular visitors over the years. We made a reservation for several special occasions (birthdays, wedding anniversary) treating my wife's daughter and partner. We only discovered the change of ownership a couple of weeks before our booking but decided to try the new regime. What a disappointment! The taster menu was chosen (with wines) but... More

Description
The Square restaurant in London's ultra-smart Mayfair has four right angles: great food, wines, service, and location. The dining room is a refined space where you can seal a deal, celebrate a triumph, or simply dine incredibly well. Chef Patron Philip Howard has earned a pair of Michelin stars for his unique French-inspired haute cuisine using impeccable ingredients to create dishes capable of both gossamer elegance and vivid boldness all in the same bite. Everything is superb, though we particularly recommend the herb-crusted saddle of lamb with shallot purée, artichokes, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The Square's wine list (wine bible, really) runs to 80 pages of the world's finest.

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
