Located high up on the 28th floor of the London Hilton at 22 Park Lane, Galvin at Windows restaurant and bar has become one of the capital’s most talked-about destination dining venues since its opening in 2006. Head Chef Joo Won and Chef Patron Chris Galvin have created seasonally inspired menus based around modern French haute cuisine that have now earned the restaurant its first, much-deserved Michelin Star. Renowned for its peerless views over the capital, including iconic sites like Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace, Galvin at Windows is a restaurant where honest food and genuine hospitality are already a tradition after just a few short years. Because of the elegance of the room and the jaw-dropping 360-degree views, Galvin at Windows is certainly a destination restaurant with fine service and all the trimmings. But, clever Galvin staff, the set lunch menu and bar express menu bring this sublime French cuisine within reach.

Very good staff but as always the optional add ons make the final price a lot more than the advertised special offer price. It’s a lot of money for essentially eggs on toast but as a one off it’s worth it.

fantastic restaurant many london restaurants claim to be 5 star but Galvinst windows deserves every one. the staff were uber attentive and could not do enough from reception to the sommelier and waiter, the food was amazing and also a great selection of wine ,this would be enough but also there is the view which i could look allday i had not dined here before but will be going back very soon.

I went there for my girlfriend's birthday and we really appreciated the dinner.
We took the 7 courses menu with the wine paring and everything was amazing.
The food was really tasting (as expected) and the wine well explained by the sommelier.
The only "negative" point is that we would have expected a bit more time between the dishes but overall it was a lovely night

Sadly the restaurant was pretty empty so there wasn’t much ambiance. The drinks service was painfully slow, even for wine by the glass.
The menu wasn’t great - nothing like the images on social media so a little disappointing.
The staff were lovely and attentive and the views are great.
The bar is beautiful and a lovely place to relax with a drink.

Not as good as it used to be. Let’s hope complacency hasn’t slipped in.
There were 4 of us. Friends had come from overseas and we thought we would have a nice meal here.
When we arrived we decided we would get a drinking the bar as we were a little early but we were out off this as there is a rule that no coats or jackets are allowed in the bar? We are not overly comfortable leaving our coats in a cloak room.
We decided to take our table instead.
The menus arrived and we each had something different in each one, how confusing
The waiter said this shouldn’t have happened but it had. Someone had not done their job.
The starters were very nice indeed but the main courses were very disappointing lacking flavour and as for the mashed potatoes they were sloppy and lacking seasoning and butter.
We did not have a sweet.
We have been here before just as a couple and had fabulous food. Not this time though.
Disappointing for us and a slight embarrassment as we had told our overseas friends the this place was superb as it has a Michelin star. Oh how we made to look silly.
Oh well lessons learned here and I doubt we Will return anytime soon if at all.
We did all feel that some of the staff came across as if they were doing us a favour or we were spoiling their evening rather than being there to look after us.
Not a pleasant experience.

All I wanted is to book a window seated quite table to celebrate a special event... We arrived to reception where they could not locate our preconfirmed booking, after some confusion eventually they let us in. They then made excuses why they sat us in the middle of the restaurant next to a corporate booking of 15 loud party despite my clear request. They served bread starters without much introduction or attention, however, they forgot to mention it contained nuts where I clearly mentioned nut allergy in my booking request!

I soon realised that they gave away our booking to the wrong party and didn't know who we are, what request we made before.

Very unprofessional for such restaurant. What was more outrageous is that later the general manager made excuses by saying that there were 3 bookings with the same name around the same time and that their system does not handle additional request from opentable.

Receptionist and general manager attitude is horrendous. I strongly discourage high expectations for this place. Shame

£72 for two (admittedly good, but not great) courses, a wine list that starts at £40 but where 97% of the wines are around the £70-and upwards mark, and a lobby that has more photos of Fred Six than actual food tell you all you should need to know about this clip-joint. If you want to spend £150 a head don’t do it here, go to Galvin La Chapelle: the food’s better, the decor is better and you won’t feel like you’ve just been mugged by an admittedly charming French waiter.

Une expérience culinaire de haute volée, avec un accord mets-vins d'une grande justesse, parfois surprenant d'audace.
La surprise d'après repas relève quant à elle de la magie !
Service de très grande qualité, assuré avec sourire et naturel.

After using Windows for over 50 years it remains one of my favourite venues.
As Galvin, the food and service remain first class.
I do miss the old days when Friday/Saturday night was a live band and dancing but we cannot live in the past.
Well done for keeping the standards up for so many years.

We had been recommended by a very good friend whose views we trust.
We thought the hotel looked a bit tired in part an din the Windows bar.
Our main disappointment was the food - we had the lunch set menu and found it quite bland and average.

We arrived and were greeted by friendly staff. We had drinks in the bar before being escorted through to the restaurant. I had requested a table by the window but were given another location. We opted for a deluxe tasting menu and a standard tasting menu. The food we waited for approx. 25 minutes which we felt was too long. The dessert however was excellent. The wines selected for the Deluxe tasting menu were all very good and complimented the food very well; in addition, the sommelier was very helpful and really knew his stuff. All in all we had a very good experience. I remember the Windows on the World restaurant and missed the live music and dancing which used to go on and would certainly come back if there was live music to enjoy.

I thought our taster menu at Galvin at Windows was a very good overall experience. The food was well up to expectations and the service was excellent. The ambience was fine, though the layout of the restaurant means you might not get the full 'windows' experience depending on where you sit. I preferred the view from the bar, which on the lovely evening we went was stunning. The one downside for me was when the slightly confusingly configured bill came and I felt I was being nudged towards leaving a tip over and above the standard 12.5%. I left the extra gratuity part blank (as I deemed the 12.5% sufficient) and it seemed from the reaction of our really nice waiter that he thought we'd been unhappy somehow. So I left the restaurant feeling confused, a little downbeat and a tad embarrassed, and that's not the feeling I wanted to go home with.
