Mexican
Madera at Treehouse London sits at the intersection of elevated Mexican cuisine and experiential dining. As the little sister to Los Angeles based Toca Madera, this ingredient-forward concept is built for the bustling London diner. Active throughout the day and primed to hit another gear at night, Madera offers unique interpretations of Mexican food and cocktails served across breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. As the sun sets so do the lights, but everything else rises - energy, music, expectations. The experience is completely chameleonic - shape-shifting for each meal period while highlighting authentic Mexican flavour complemented by London's best view.

Twice they
Forgot to bring. Food , told they were taking tacos off bill for bad service , yet They took fish tacos off but added an in ordered steak ( x2),
Asked if we wanted desert when half our food wasn’t delivered , then denied they forgot . Table behind us was table for 4 , with added chair to make 5 , who then was back to back with me . ( I shouldn’t have to deal with other tables issues if they allowed go Extend , go ahead but don’t make it my problem ) .
Management , kept trying to push it back on me , we didn’t forget about the food (
Twice )but had no reason why service was slow .

I’m a big surprised as I’ve been there a few times and this is first time from start to finish there were problems

What a disaster!!! I've been there once before and it was good enough to return to, but the second time it was awful. The servers had attitude, the food was late, the food was so bad that you couldn't swallow it & the music was completely out of place... Never going back

We had an amazing evening at Madera treehouse. Got a table right next to the window. The food was amazing and enjoyed the live DJ. We went a bit early 6:30 and happy we did so as it got more busy around 8pm. Have already recommended to friends and will definitely go back. A bit on the pricey side but I feel the value overall justifies. Thanks for having us

Unfortunately my omelette was too salty and the presentation unappetising as the sauce looked like it was thrown on top of the omelette and by the time it reached our table the two sauces one green and one brown had merged..
There was also a horrid drain smell at reception

A very disappointing dinning experience but putting this down to teething issues which I hope the management manage to sort out.

Too busy for the price. Too noisy. Food was good, not a fan of sharing plates, but the menu was all about it.

The refurbishment of this top floor hotel restaurant is stunning. The old St George’s restaurant was so under played. The views are superb, the decor, using lots of natural wood, is brilliant. The food is good, lovely and spicy. Wines are rather expensive, the cheapest @ £40. Service was attentive. Hope to be back soon.

Had an amazing time at Madera.
Only wish we were informed of the table options when making the booking. We were given a bar table initially which we didn’t particularly want. Luckily the staff are really nice and we were moved to a nice window sit down table.
The food is really nice, and the views amazing. Staff are also very nice. Very good atmosphere.

We had to wait 45 min for our table and service and the bar was unorganised. Layout could have been better! Decor was ok but felt more like a bad copy of Amazonico, would have been better with a different decor and ambience was not great, too loud and messy. Service was bad, not so much because of the waiters but because they were servong too many tables. Food was ok but overpriced. The highlight was the drinks more so than the food. Place has a lot of potential but it's ruined by poor service and a touristy crowd.

The hostesses (the Latin looking and black girls) are not professional nor friendly and don’t carry themselves like they are at work.

The location of the host area to wait to be seated is in a narrow hallway so not practical.

The music was very loud at 7:30pm on a Saturday night so was not easy to have a conversation.

The waiter gave us excellent service and was great.

Views are great and good is average

Great bar and views, but quality of food was average for the price and a hotel associated with Starwood.

Food was excellent, bar and drinks excellent, ambiance very nice though music was a bit loud for conversation over dinner. Incredible view and location. However, Attention to detail lacking—took 45 minutes to get seated after reservation time after having to prompt multiple hostesses three times.

Overall great place

Great food and atmosphere. Need to work on service overall. Extremely slow response time to drink orders, had to ask multiple people where they were on multiple occasions. Gorgeous restaurant with tasty food and friendly staff. They just need to work out a few kinks.

A bit hit and miss. Had wrong food sent to our table, and had trouble communicating with our waiter. Also, the tortillas we got served were very dry and didnt taste freshly made. But the manager did help us out with the issues. Great view, and cocktails were great. They've only just opened so it will hopefully improve with time.

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to us. I am glad to see the issues were rectified by the manager and am a bit disappointed to see this still did not garner a better review than 2 stars. I hope you come back to see our usual high standard of service and food.

Overall such a lovely place, with great atmosphere, lovely views and very attentive staff. Close by to oxford circus station, yet hidden away makes this a cute little find. The ambience and decor of the restaurant and bar is spot on. Unfortunately the food needs a lot of work! The ceviche was very tangy and the prawns tasted a bit funny. The pizza style plates were nice which was the nicest dish we had overall. It wasn't terrible but just not great. I would defo go back for drinks around the bar area! I wouldn't recommend going for the food but I really like the place.
