    I thought the whole experience was underwhelming. We had the tasting menu. The food was good but nothing more. The main I could have cooked at home myself and the dessert lacked any wow factor and just tasted of chocolate. The wine pairing was average. The service was overly fussy and exaggerated bordering on being annoying. You couldn’t have a chat for more than 30 seconds before someone interrupted you. The ambiance was non existent although it was fairly quiet and less than half full. Overall, a disappointing experience and won’t be going back.

    Marcus was nothing short of spectacular. From start to finish you are treated like not royalty; this is far too stiff and formal, but more like that fun uncle or aunt you had growing up, the one you always wanted to be around and would do anything for. You have the staff's complete attention who are not only friendly and swift but personable and funny. We went for the 7 course tasting menu (rounded off with an added tarte tatin because it would be incredibly uncouth not to) with sommelier's selection and it certainly did not disappoint. The refinement of every dish was a work of art; how one elevates a baked potato was never a question on my mind however the answer is now never far from my mind as for me this was the triumph of the evening. Each course was an adventure in taste from bold to subtle flavours and very intelligent in skill and delivery. This wasn't a menu scrawled out on the back of a napkin but a love story delicately and meticulously planned for all to enjoy. Each pairing was a perfect match and took us on a journey across the globe which by the end had our legs wobbling from all that travelling! To summarise, Marcus had the feel and service of a family run restaurant where they take pride and great pleasure in serving you. The kitchen I believe to be a coalition of top level chefs and magicians and this wasn't just a culinary masterclass it was also a little magical.

    Wasn’t blown away by the whole dining experience & this was nothing to do with my date ! I know it’s Mayfair & restaurants are expensive but for the money it just doesn’t cut it ! My date is an experienced chef & said the same thing, on the + side service brilliant but unfortunately we won’t be returning.

    We visited on the occasion of our 30th anniversary. We have visited several times before and this time did not disappoint. The food, as always, was amazing, but it is the staff who really are the stars of this restaurant. They seem to have the instinct to know just when something is required, or not quite right. We were made to feel like VIPS, as I am sure everybody else did too! Looking forward to our next visit already.

    The staff were great and drinks in the blue bar before were fun, but the food went from ordinary to poor. I have to say for a Michelin star restaurant the food offered was quite forgettable. The staff were kind enough to discount our bill in light of our feedback.

    We enjoyed an exceptionally good tasting menu of British seasonal produce, imaginatively presented and flawlessly executed. Service was however short of the standard expected at this level, by some distance. Starters and amuse-bouches arrived quite speedily but then, without explanation, there was a 45-minute wait for course three, and then an equally long wait for course four. It was all rather anxiety-inducing, and made us wonder whether there might have been some misfires in the kitchen. We were left to speculate, with neither updates nor explanation, and we felt rather neglected. Worse was to come. I had treated myself to a glass of rather exotic Burgundy, but I ended up being charged for a bottle of the stuff, which made the first draft of the bill properly eye-popping. Even after adjustment, our dinner for two set us back some way north of £350 - plus some tut-tutting from our babysitter when we finally arrived back home an hour later than we'd expected. Overall, despite the wonderful food, our experience was rather marred by the haphazard service, and we'll not be hurrying back to Marcus.

    My latest visit to Marcus was a very pleasurable experience, as always. I went for lunch on the day they reopened after a six-month layoff due to the Covid lockdown. Marcus himself was there keeping an eye on activities but as always the superb staff delivered the goods in every sense. The staff are charming and professional, and everything is conducted in an air of relaxed formality in one of the more traditional interior designs that you’ll find in a fine restaurant in London. They have spent their time off making a few changes and they made some alterations to the menu. I had the Chef’s Lunch Menu which was good value at £50 for three courses. I went for the scallops starter and then the ‘market fish of the day’ – which was turbot, a beautiful interpretation with borlotti beans. I am a big wine enthusiast and Marcus’s fine list by the glass (ideal if you are having a solo lunch like I was on this visit) is one of the best. The sommelier was relaxed, knowledgeable and conversational. I had some lovely wines matched with my courses, finishing with cheese, he matched with a red Bordeaux – the suggestion of Segla 2009, the second wine of Chateau Segla was superb. Marcus remains one of my favourite restaurants in Europe, if for no other reasons than the sublime quality of the food, the imagination and the innovation. It’s a pleasure to see the whole kitchen and front of house teams on top of their game, even more so in these tough times. Highly recommended.

    Really lovely. Impeccable service (we were even asked by Marcus himself if we were being looked after, was rather starstruck!), pleasantly luxurious setting in the Berkeley, and the food was delicious. We had the 5 course tasting menu with cheese board, the first dish in particular (a burrata with olives and spun sugar) was stunning and very unique. The rest were solid 1 star - excellent food cooked excellently. We went for an anniversary and the staff were extremely kind in helping us mark the occasion. I was pleased to learn also they had a good range of non-alcoholic options including Seedlip. Overally highly recommended for a special dinner.
