I made the mistake of accepting a table near the front door and front desk. This, combined with regular staff attendance, meant that my colleague and i were constantly interrupted. We were there to nut out a business problem and we barely got three minutes without interruption. This was extremely irritating. However, i mentioned to the lady in charge that we needed ten quiet minutes and she made sure it happened - great service.
I really enjoy Butlers, I find the food good, the wines good, and the staff personable and warm. I also like being able to have a real conversation at my table without neighbours being involved etc. It's a really pleasant place to lunch or dine. I count it a favourite, I will be back.

I have some good memories of my lovely family celebrations here with my parents, siblings and our children. Was so nostalgic to return with my partner for his birthday to share with him my memories.
It was so nice to see Loris, the Maitre de was still as genial as ever and the food quality and service outstanding. Thank you for making it such a special evening.

An amazing experience. Excellent menu, superb service and with an atmosphere that allows real conversations to occur. I highly recommend it for a very pleasant and enjoyable evening with extraordinary service, excellent food, fine wine and an atmosphere where a business meeting or a enjoyable discussion may be held where you speak in a normal tone of voice.

A grand hotel in a grand location but not a grand time for us. The service was super slow, my guest didn't get the cocktail he had ordered and the lobster in my lobster omelette was off, and they still tried to charge me for it after I sent it back. Never again.

We did enjoy our meal but there was the mistake with my onion-family intolerance that made it a bit of a mess! Our waiter was wonderful - very human and warm - and did his utmost to sort it all out for us. We enjoyed our food and matching wine flight. I'd consider going back because of the lovely waiter!

The staff were lovely, but the room is generally looking a bit tired. It was pretty dead on a Saturday evening. Had the set menu with a wine flight, the lobster omelette was great and fairly generous. Sadly the pork belly was awful - large peices of gristle made it on to the plate, over-smoked mash and broad beans past their best, the accompanying sauce was great but there was not nearly enough of it. Peach Melba made for a decent enough simple pudding. The Pinot noir was good and we had some nice mini macaroons and truffles to finish. Overall ok but uninspired and the main course was a major let-down

A midweek lunch outing. We opted for the set menu, three options on each of the three courses plus the option of a main from the daily changing trolley. Modern British food. We opted for: lobster omelette and pate, (pieces of lobster could have been larger... like the Goring !!). Chicken for the mains and a cheese cake for desert. All well presented, good temperature and sensible portion sizes. We added in the matching wines, very pleasant with the food. A focus on South African, the hotel has ties to a Vineyard down there. A non intrusive piano player creating a welcoming background sound to an almost empty restaurant. All in all a good lunch, a warm and welcoming place. The bars good too... a gentlemens club feel.

Loris is a most wonderful host. The food and recommendations and the personal service were absolutely outstanding. The food was indeed very rich and we especially enjoyed the lobster omelette which was expertly paired with the wine. The is possibly London's best kept secret. What a wonderful dining room and no annoying background music and crashing sounds that you get in a lot of restaurants these days. Loris explained that the plush carpet and wood panelling absorbs sounds and the service was just so impeccable. This place is very first class and just thanks for the memories. Cheers to Loris and the team.

Booked this restaurant for a birthday dinner. The manager was kind enough to provide us with a cordoned off area in the middle of the restaurant which provided us with a good seating arrangement and comfortable amount of privacy with good ambience. Staff were very attentive to our needs and went the extra mile to help bring out the birthday cake, then return to the kitchen to plate up the cake servings, before boxing up the remainder for us to take home. The staff even gifted a little teddy with a fresh flower to the birthday girl. What a nice surprise!
The food choice was substantial enough not to be overwhelmed and each course was made deliciously. The wine list was very detailed with a varied selection catering for all budgets and wine drinkers. All in all, very good restaurant and staff service in a good Mayfair location.

I booked this restaurant for my boyfriends birthday, as well as a couples valentines meal. It was fantastic. The food was brilliant, the added extras they brought over to us were fantastic too, oysters and sorbet. On top of that the White Label Champagne tasted brilliant (I'm not usually a drinker). There was a little wait between being seated and being served, but after that the service from our waiter was impeccable. Would definitely recommend.

We were greeted by a very helpful chap who went off to find our missing companion, who had arrived ahead of time and was elsewhere in the hotel.
Unfortunately, there were only a couple of other diners, so the restaurant was very quiet.
We ate from the set menu (£35 for three courses and a glass of champagne). There was plenty of choice - except for our vegetarian. The chef was good enough to prepare another dish for her to give a bit of variety. I enjoyed all my courses - as did my friends.
Wine is a bit pricey, but I enjoyed the Chablis (£47).
Overall, a pleasant meal - but not outstanding.

Once again a very enjoyable meal at Bulers - we had the lunch set menu - I had the roast lamb and my husband had steak. The starters and desserts were delicious and coffee came with macaroons. Unfortunately it was very quiet on a Monday lunchtime. We were lucky to have Loris as our waiter again - truly professional and excellent in all respects. We complimented the macaroons and were given a little parcel to take home. Would highly recommend

Superb food, exemplary service and a reasonably priced wine list make Butlers a joy every time I visit. Their daily carvery / roast offer and nostalgic puddings are such a treat. The dining room was nearly empty when we visited on this particular evening, which does not do them justice - they deserve to be busier. A really lovely evening made even better by the attentive and charismatic service of the maitre d'. Highly recommended.
