Time Out says

Conversations overheard at Wiltons, which was established in 1742, are always a cut above. On our last visit, an elderly gent recounted where he sat at the Coronation to his grandson, who later pronounced ‘grouse shooting is just the best’ when describing his summer plans. It’s no private club, though, as anyone with sufficient funds can enjoy the seductive comfort of the dining room (bustling but cosy) and the supremely attentive, courteous service – from men in regulation black-and-white and ladies in prim green dresses with a distinct look of school matron.

The kitchen doesn’t do experimental, but renders its chosen repertoire very well. Prices have even dropped slightly for the three-course set lunch, from which we tried a lovely, smooth warm vichyssoise with crisp-fried egg and truffle. Also included was the day’s roast, beautifully pink lamb cooked to perfection, and an apple and blackberry crumble that was also spot on. Transfer to the carte and you can enjoy other British classics – hefty grilled meats, more roasts, Wiltons’ famed fish, oysters and other seafood. The wine range is predictably grand, and details (breads, fresh petits fours) are exquisite. Nice to see standards being maintained, even if one can’t often afford it.

This is a place to go when you want to do something special, it has that gentrified glamour to it. It feels like you are stepping back in time and everything is so meticulous. I loved it there and would recommend it as treat to anyone. I had the lobster cocktail as a starter which was such a treat and the halibut as a main which was so well cooked! My mother had the smoked trout with an endive salad as a main which was so well made and it paired perfectly! 


One of the things I loved was the man sitting next to us decided to have an aperitif and they took a trolley to his table with all the cognacs you could imagine gave him a presentation of each before he chose- like a cheese trolley. Places like this make me happy and I don't care that it costs an arm and a leg to eat here, some people can afford to be regulars here but it's nice to go somewhere that feels special if you are not that type as well. 


Dinner at Wiltons. What can I say? From the understated ambience, the decor, the art works, the gentile pace. It truly is a delight to ‘come home’ The personal attention to detail from the minute you are greeted at the door, magnificent staff discreetly attending to every request, the sublime menu and perfect wine pairings. Oysters and champagne to tempt the palate, followed by a menu that is bursting with originality and flavor. An epicurean delight! This was not just a ‘meal with friends’ it's a dining experience. a gastronomic theatre. One I look forward to repeating on my next trip to London .

Thank you all for making a night with friends, a memorable occasion.
