The Wolseley is one of the first restaurants I would recommend to a friend visiting London. The space is beautiful, the location is central, the atmosphere is bustling and busy, and the food is delicious. For tourists, I would probably recommend lunch or dinner over...More

Large, busy and a little noisey but exceptionally well organized service and excellent food at prices that were quite reasonable compared to most of the other fine dining restaurants in the Pall Mall area. Would definitely recommend and would go again.

This is such a classic English restaurant. The food is delicious and the room is classy yet not at all stuffy.

Am never disappointed with either lunch or dinner at the Wolseley: the food is consistently good, the service impeccable and friendly, the price point fairly accurate, and enjoyment assured. Generally, I always order the steal tartare followed by wiener Holstein, which has become a bit...More

I love eating at the Wolsely! It's not a visit to London without having either lunch or dinner here. The menu is not vast but the food is always beautiful. The staff are all lovely and make an effort for you to enjoy your visit....More

Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed

London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping 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

I don't see why they wouldn't. Although if it's charged per person and they see both of you eating they'll x2 your bill I'd suspect, after all they are a business.

I agree smart casual is OK. There are some very smartly dressed people. I went for a late supper after the theatre. If you are lucky you might even spot the odd celebrity.
