This summer, join us at May Fair Kitchen Summer Terrace where we have partnered with Campari, the king of the Italian aperitivo. Set in a prime Mayfair location, the 'Italian terrazza' premieres on the 17th May to offer a selection of pizzette and cocktails.

........................................................................................................................................
Set in London’s most exclusive neighbourhood, award-winning May Fair Kitchen offers a menu of contemporary Italian and Spanish small plates, in addition to signature dishes from its sister Kitchens and a curated list of fine wines and cocktails.

Our Kitchen’s ambience is brought to life with natural materials and furnishings, mellow glow drop lighting and a soft industrial design, which gives the space a relaxed yet refined atmosphere.

Went for birthday celebrations to have after dinner drinks whilst dining elsewhere in Mayfair. Drinks and small plates were AMAZING. Service was 10/10 and I will definitely be back!

I went for my sister's birthday celebration which had been initially postponed due to the pandemic. The atmosphere at May Fair kitchen was very relaxing. The staff were extremely attentive, friendly and gave excellent suggestions for the food to try out. The staff were accommodating in that we ate our mains in one section of the restaurant and before requesting to sit in the initimate setting by the bar to have our dessert and drinks. The team bought a little additional pudding out to my sister, decorating the plate with the writing "Happy Birthday".

When we went, the restaurant had been operating on a reduced menu. I would most definitely return to taste the full menu, as the reduced one had been flawless!! I would DEFINITELY recommend.

Menu was really limited and what selection they had was greasy, over flavoured and below what was expected
Service was very good considering they had no food to offer

The service was second to none.
The food choices were good for breakfast with many palettes to cater for, if required.
Bit on the pricey side but hey - you're in The May Fair.

I didn’t notice the message about the smaller menu and there was no ambience with an event running with people loading their cars etc …

Staff provided the most impeccable service from the second we arrived. They were so attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and wine, and went above and beyond to make it a lovely birthday celebration. They were also very accommodating as we had a toddler with us. Great experience overall, we will definitely return.

We stayed at the Mayfair hotel and decided to dine at the May Fair kitchen on our first night before our visit to the theatre. We were blown away, the food was superb from start to finish. The tortellini was to die for. The staff were very helpful and friendly too. It was an excellent start to our weekend away.

We went for a three course set lunch.
We were three of us and tried different dishes. Everything was very good. I am being v critical but if i was to omit anything it would be the peppered calamari, the batter was too thick, yet it was tasty.
The service was excellent, I have been here pre pandemic and this time around we found the serving sizes had increased.
A very good value for the food and the service

Absolutely amazing time in the restaurant. Staff are exceptional, food was incredibly delicious and portion sizes are perfection. The care and effort put into making each plate as appealing as the last one doesn't go unnoticed. Food and service in this place are unrivalled. One of the most heavenly places to visit for some fine dining in a great atmosphere with incredibly pleasant and efficient staff!

Me and my friends did the Afternoon Tea on 12/6 , we were really excited to try it out as the pictures and reviews looked great ... This was not the case.

Our first waiter was really good , I wish we could have got his name so I would have let management know how good he was , but from that was the only bit of good service we had for the rest of the day . We ordered 1) meat we asked for our new teas which took about 15 mins to arrive . I had to let someone know that the toilet had run out of toilet paper , he said he would let someone know, but him and his colleagues were having a chinwag behind some pillars . Overall, I would give the service 3/10 it's a 3 because the first waiter was excellent but went downhill from there Food 4/10 the cakes and scones Tea / Champagne saved it

A meal ruined by a very peculiar dish: ‘Our signature Spanish claypot Spanish red prawns with garlic butter rice, paprika chilli broth and roasted kale’. Our lively and lovely waitress advised us of its Japanese leanings when we ordered. Portentous. With barely a prawn in sight, an apologetic bowl of what could be best described as congee arrived. A white broth With Things In It, heavily laced with chilli. We ate it, and with worries that this should be their ‘signature’ dish (and concerns too about geographical confusion) left promptly afterwards, skipping deserts, and ate elsewhere.
