About

At the heart of the Mayfair food and art scene, The Square aims to provoke, surprise and delight. In an evolutionary approach to modern haute cuisine, Chef Clément serves artistic dishes with inestimable flair.

The new concept reflects an energetic, urban and contemporary attitude underpinned by elegant and luxurious style. The Square takes epicurean excellence to new heights and deliver an unparalleled experience in the established location among the capital’s most illustrious art galleries. The minimal, architectural approach to the environment sets the tone of the rarefied experience, in keeping with the style and sophistication found in the menu, food execution and presentation.

Excellent for an amicable business lunch, with low noise levels and discrete service. We had the lunch (table d'hote) menu which is excellent value while at the same time being a taste of the great cuisine that The Square has to offer.

Excellent set lunch for £37. Wine very expensive though. Food and service were faultless

This is the second time we have dined at The Square and it does not disappoint. A good menu and excellent service, perhaps a little background music would be nice as it can be quiet.

This was our first visit to The Square and we will definitely return. We chose a tasting menu and all dishes from the amuse bouche to cheese and dessert were wonderfully creative and artfully presented. This is the place for a special occasion! Recommended.

Very odd atmosphere with only 4 tables at lunch. Food was delivered within seconds of sitting down or any drinks. No Campari. Took ages for wine as wine waiter was sick. Food was excellent. Crockery/cutlery beautiful but totally lacked soul. Might try it again but would want to check it was at least half full.

The food was very good with knowledgeable waiters bringing it to you and quite attentive overall. In particular, we liked the initial appetiser by the chef, the raviolis and the white pork and finally the St John's wood honey dessert.
Although there aren't any amuse bouche at the start we were pleasantly surprised by the petit fours at the end and the madeleines as a present when we left,

The food and wine were outstanding and we were very well served. We opted for a £50 promotional offer via our booking with Open Table which included 5 courses and a glass of champagne. We also chose the house red which was excellent at the budget end of their extensive wine list. Overall the bill with service was well under £100 per head which felt like really amazing value for this top end restaurant.
I have no hesitation in recommending The Square.

Given how outstanding the food and service are at this well located restaurant, I was shocked that it wasn’t busier on my most recent visit. The haute French cuisine is top notch with a fabulous wine menu.

Expected this to b fantastic but was rather disappointed. There was No a la carte menu and we had to order far more food than we wanted to eat. Waiters kept telling us it would be fine but it was not. Service was slower than even the most leisurely diner, which we are not. Everything was fantastically created and plated but not always delicious tho beautiful. Far too precious for my taste. Would like them to scale down a bit.

The reviews below were submitted before March 21st 2019, when this restaurant changed its chef.

Went for my birthday with my husband who isn't a foodie but enjoyed it very much.
They weren't intimidating as I'd expected they would be ;) and not too tiny portion either. We were properly full (ok we ate a lot of bread but only because their butter was amazing!) and skipped dinner.
We had lunch tasting menu, and it was like a story - started off with amuse bouche and moving on to next dish to another with different texture and explosion in my mouth.
Lunch tasting menu is affordable 60.00, but regretted not going for 90.00 full tasting menu! Next time :)

...then this is your place. The menu requires one to be an adventurous eater. That said, the risks were not worth the reward. The entrees were fussy, but frankly, not so great. Overall, a big disappointment.

A brilliant place for fantastic food, amazing service with friendly and very professional. A fantastic combination of formal and informal, beautifully prepared food which is to die for to eat and crisp everything but not as though you feel you cant relax. y partner was given a personal menu and gifts to take home which was not necessary but a lovely thought. Def will be going back for any occasion!!

The place is nice, a typical 2 michelin star restaurant with usual suspect dishes. Good service though.

Celebrating a 40th birthday, not only was the food perfectly presented, tasty and balanced but the service was on point and they even presented my wife with a personalised birthday card from the team and some yummy gift packaged chocolates, nice touch!
