Ormer Mayfair is overseen by celebrated Michelin star chef Shaun Rankin. This stunning art deco inspired interior of the restaurant, located in the heart of Mayfair, is awash with 1930s glamour with leather banquette seating, dark oak wall panelling and hand-crafted chevron glass screens. Inspiration for the food comes from Rankin’s acclaimed Jersey restaurant that has held a Michelin star since 2013.

Centrally located and in a charming nice hotel. Interior is welcoming and roomy, relaxed and quiet. Staff is attentive and knowledgeable, and was enthusiastic about the food they offered. We felt very welcome and the food was excellent in every way: Beautifully presented, perfectly cooked and well sourced ingredients. We had lunch, and will definitely be back.

It's just like being at home - Agnieszka has the most wonderful team, chef - who left his kitchen to greet me which is such an honour - is a master of creativity and the restaurant and hotel itself is a wonderful art deco, so what more would you want?

Starter (chicken oysters) and Dessert (apple crumble) - were both amazing, in presentation and taste.
My main course of lamb, again looked wonderful , but was a little too rare for me- I appreciate that they recommended it be served medium/rare - but I did request it to be cooked medium/well, which the waiter said was ok, and what I got was certainly not even medium - that was disappointlng.

Not only was the food and wine pairing outstanding, but the service was beyond attentive and personal. Attention to detail was incredible! Meeting Head Chef Kerth also made the experience for my partner and me, he was incredibly hospitable and welcoming. Having Kerth bring out our dessert and talk us through the different elements factored into the personal experience. Photos attached are from the Chef’s Tasting Menu.

My husband and I took my daughter here for lunch as a special treat after her graduation. The food was delicious and the service exemplary. We were made to feel very welcome and found plenty to tempt us on the set menu option we had chosen. I particularly enjoyed the octopus - so tender - and the strawberry dessert was exquisite. Heartily recommended.

Excellent food, striking a balance between artistic, experimental, and delicious, with careful thought into the textural, heat, and flavor complexity of each dish. The food was paired with nearly impeccable service and a selection of wonderful wines.

This was my second visit, albeit over a number of years. It suited my purposes, which required a certain amount of privacy and the ability to hear each other talk. On top of that, the service was attentive, but not too attentive, the ambience very pleasant and the duck the best either of us could remember. There are many other venues that are more famous in this locale, but the Ormer equals or surpasses them for the quality of the food and peace and quiet in a delightful atmosphere.

We returned after a delightful meal several months ago and were not disappointed...warm, personal welcome and each dish was exquisitely designed and harmoniously combined for taste. Service was impeccable, not stand-offish considering the Mayfair location. Congratulations to Chef and team!
With thanks.

The service was absolutely disgraceful. We waited over an hour for our main course. When it did eventually arrive, we weee passed eating and sent it back.

Having been a regular there, we would never return based in our latest visit.

The staff were amazing, very attentive and friendly in a genuine way. The starter and main stole the show (Lobster Ravioli and Halibut) the dessert whilst beautifully presented was just 'nice'. My friend has the crab starter and Lobster main which looked amazing, she agreed re dessert. Beautiful experience and lots of nice touches like the trio of chocolates to take away.

An amazing experience at Ormer. Everything from start to finish was fantastic. I have recommended to many friends and colleagues that they try this place. I would also recommend that you arrive early and try Manetta's bar inside the hotel. Great cocktails and a beautiful venue.

My second visit which was as stunning as the first. Understandably you pay for this standard but it would be nice if the staff could be a little less attentive. I will be back and recommend this restaurant to anyone wishing a brilliant meal.

Took my fiance here for a Birthday meal. The entire experience from the point of arrival was excellent. Every dish was impeccable, in terms of presentation, size and subtle layering of complex flavours. The ambience was understated but luxurious. The staff are friendly, knowledgable and attentive without being disruptive and even organised a lovely small birthday surprise after dessert, carefully checking before to make sure it was appropriate. We had a cocktail beforehand in their very cosy bar next to the restaurant and took the champagne accompanied set menu. By the time you've each had 3 courses, 3 fairly generous glasses and two half-bottles of house champagne to take home, £69 actually starts to feel exceptionally good value for money.

With cocktails and a couple of set menu supplements, a meal for 2 came out just over £200 total, which may feel expensive for some, this being the only reason for the 4* Value rating. For me, as a one-off special occasion, I certainly didn't feel short-changed in any way. Given the quality of the cuisine, I'm sure it is only a matter of time before they earn a Michelin Star or two.

Cannot recommend highly enough.
