MERE is husband and wife team, Monica and David Galetti's first restaurant.

Spread over two floors, this Fitzrovia-based restaurant is the brainchild of Monica Galetti who is featuring as a judge on the BBC's MasterChef The Professionals.

The restaurant itself serves european dishes that have been delicately created by Monica and Alberto our Head Chef.
Nestled above the spacious basement restaurant is the bar, managed by our Mixologist Glenn, which serves an array of delectable cocktails.
Monica's husband, David , is in charge of the Front of House at Mere with his Restaurant Manager Nicola, and using his years of experience as an expert sommelier to create a wine selection along side his head Sommelier Alexandre that perfectly balances with the seasonal dishes on offer.

    An exceptional night out. My husband and I both had the tasting menu - one vegetarian and one not, with the wine flight. Absolutely outstanding food and drinks all round, and all the staff were amazing - really relaxed, knowledgeable and funny. The sommelier was a scream. Best night I've ever spent in a restaurant. Total fan girl moment meeting the amazing woman that is Monica Galetti at the end. Had some great chats with the barman Glenn afterwards who made us some fantastic cocktails. We can't wait to go back! :)

    Our birthday celebration meal was a real treat, starting with cocktails. We both had the tasting course menu, without wine matching but we did get a bottle of red. Both food and service were faultless - hard to pick a stand-out course, they were all so delicious. From previous experience of celebrity chef restaurants we didn't count on Monica Galetti making an appearance but she did, going round all the tables for a quick chat. The icing on the cake!

    Staff were very friendly. Cocktail menu was excellent. Food was tasty and enjoyable. Only criticism would be that portions were small and dishes needed potato or something to go with the meat. Overall experience was positive and we would return there

    A fabulous experience. I've never felt more welcome in a restaurant from start to finish. The food was wonderful, as was the wine, the service perfect. Pre-dinner cocktails were also excellent, prepared by a knowledgeable bartender and good to see my favourite Aviation on the list!! I can't wait to go back!!

    From the moment the four of us entered the restaurant we felt put at ease by the friendly and pleasant staff. David helped us with our choice of drinks - their house champagne - and we browsed the food choices .My only criticism would be it was a bit dark for us to read the menu. Moving downstairs, we then had a tasting menu with wine flight , 2 meat and 2 vegetarian, which was amazing. One delicious taste sensation after another with explanations of the wine with every course. Seeing Monica was an added highlight. We would all highly recommend this restaurant and we will return. Thanks to all the team at Mere.

    From the moment we walked in it was a perfect evening. I had phoned ahead the previous week as I am vegetarian and have a garlic allergy, they had adapted the tasting menu for me, and everything was absolutely delicious. The rest of the family had the normal tasting menu and were also very impressed, they especially loved the fish. We were also delighted that Monica was Chef that evening and came out and had a quick chat with each table, what a lovely touch. A big thank you to her and her amazing team, definitely one to remember.

    The tasting menu was excellent; we really enjoyed all the courses. The standouts were the lamb cannon and the cheese mousse with fig compote. Tasting menu at £98 was reasonable value given we were in London. Owner Monica Galetti came out the kitchen to meet the guests which was unexpected. Impressive customer service. Wine list was a extensive; thankfully the sommelier guided us to an excellent Sauvignon Blanc followed by a Gigondas which did not break the bank. Overall, we had an great evening and hope to return. Thank you to Mere.

    We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. Each course was delicious with the waitress explaining each ingredient and the sommelier giving us the flavours to look out for with each wine for each course. The service was exceptional and although there were two dishes that I was worried about trying they were two of the best. The Hokey Pokey desert was amazing wish I could have had two!

    On 23 June we visited for lunch having been given a voucher for a birthday. This was such a treat with excellent food that had really intense flavours in the smallest bite. We were welcomed and the service was outstanding, all staff treated us as their special guests with a friendly manner. Monica took the time to greet all her guests which was a lovely touch. The whole experience was exceptional and we would recommend this without hesitation.

    We were greeted pleasantly enough but then the fun stopped. The waiting staff seemed to no really want to be there - little to no smiles and not much interaction. The food was strange - smoked duck with pepper and vanilla?? all the combinations were odd and none made you want to keep going back or think about having to bring people here. The drinks were pretty good and they had a Duckhorn red that i have been wanting to try for years and that did not disappoint. Monica was in when we were there and running the pass - we asked if it would be possible for her to meet us (given we are fans) and the front of house said he would ask and she would usually come out after service. At 10pm I asked if she was still coming to meet us nd he said she had left - brilliant NOT. I A lot could be learnt by going to Pollen Street social - Jason A has it right. He also went out of his way to not only come and meet us when we went, but had copies of the tasting menu printed off and signed for us to take away with us. Over all MERE was .. more Meh .. o dear. I will not be recommending this place or returning again. As Gordan Ramsey would say "such a shame"
