If you’re a foodie , then you will definitely be disappointed because everything is rather bland or at best average. But the biggest outrage of the evening was the 4 pound charge for bread. The waiter asked if we wanted bread without any mention of the charge. I know that this all sounds petty, but there was absolutely nothing special about the bread to warrant the extra charge.

Set in the stunning Great Western Hotel, this basement restaurant was astonishingly reasonable given the setting. Very English dining experience in a fabulous room. Not cheap, but great value.

It was a bit hard to find since it's actually inside a hotel but once my friend and I found it we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The food was excellent.

Service is poor for the standing of the hotel.
We were asked if we wanted olives and bread without having the set menu on table. We agreed and discovered too late they charged us £3 for olives and another £3 for 2 tiny bread portion with olives in it.
Then we ordered a glass of chablis to match perfectly with our main course but they brought us a red wine saying it was a glass of red chablis (it doesn't exist).

Honestly bad experience, will not book again and would not recommend. It's even more disappointing because the food is good and generous (a tiny expensive I would say) but the hotel offers a nice and comfortable ambiance, well you feel welcome to stay...

I can honestly say this was one of the best dining experiences we have ever encountered. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were amazed by the service provided by our servant. Noella is an absolute credit to the Landmark hotel and I cannot speak of her praises high enough. I will absolutely recommend this hotel to all of our friends and family and is a MUST for anyone visiting Marlybone. The food was outstanding and delicious and I cannot recommend 222 enough. Thank you for making our night special!

Our waitress was lovely. Kind and attentive.
Prawn cocktail was a little colder than usual but edible after letting it sit for a few minutes. The English asparagus on brioche with poached egg was decent but could have done with a little more heat and egg not overcooked.
Portions were smaller than the last time we visited. Sea bream on crab risotto was plentiful but could have had a better ratio of crab to rice. Highlight of meal was the sweet potato fries. Light and delicious.

The selling-point of "Twotwentytwo" in Marylebone was the service, which was friendly and efficient. The food was tasty, however the mains portions were relatively small, leaving me unimpressed with the overall value-for-money proposition.

the menu looks good, the restaurant looks good, and entering through the grandiose Landmark hotel our expectations were raised.
Sadly, the substance just wasn't there. The food, when it eventually arrived, was nice enough but out steaks were over-cooked and overpriced. We were almost 2 hours for 2 courses.
Maybe with hotel trade passing through they don't have to make much of an effort to drive business.

As always, the prawn cocktail hit the spot. One of the very best in London. The warm focaccia sticks was delicious as always. Veggie burger and salmon burger were a delight as were the non- greasy fries.
Yum! Thank you.

This is a typical hotel restaurant, well designed but little atmosphere Everything was adequate but nothing shone. The salmon with the Caesar Salad was raw in the middle. I was told that they served it medium rare. If this is the case surely the customer should be told when ordering, I was asked if I wanted anchovies, 2 being the number on the Caesar salad.

it has the image and corresponding prices of a top class establishment but the food and service were well below par. to get 3 med/rare steaks to be cooked med/well is a basic error and just exemplifies why this is a poor review. will not be returning.

meal was ok, quite pricey when compared to other local restaurants. I suggest to move the two large chairs from in front of the log fire so several more tables could see it as it does add to the ambience. Its an ok place, but so many more local that offer a better deal.

Good local restaurant, the food was good, though I would say having got the steak, the specialty steakhouses do those better. The other half had the salmon which was good though as were the cocktails.

Really nice food with plenty of choice for varied tastes. Service was exceptional, the staff were very attentive without being intrusive. Lovely ambience and decor. Does not feel like a hotel restaurant at all. Nice music and although busy, was still quiet enough to be able to have a quite conversation comfortably. Will definitely return!

I love the Landmark hotel especially the Antrim for lunch but was a bit disappointed with TwoTwentyTwo. Paying £30 for a mediocre fillet steak.
The waitress was lovely and friendly and nice ambiance all be it a bit dark .
Would I go again..... I don't think so but give the hotel bars a try it's a nice place.

Truly enjoyed our dinner here at 222. We flew in from Los Angeles and knew we wanted to dine at the hotel. The restaurant far exceeded our expectations. Good knowledgable service and the food was wonderful. We love our raw meat and the steak tartare was some of the best we've tasted. with the small rocket salad and fries it is a complete meal. When next in London we will dine here again.

This was my first visit to Twotwentytwo but is unlikely to be my last. The food was really good (and a good selection on the menu), the service was excellent and the ambience was really nice - although probably more suited to cosying-up in winter than a summer's day.

Tables are well spaced and food is consistent - though not particularly innovative. Service is often slow and it isn't cheap considering the short menu. But seeing as it is located within the bowels of a hotel, which also has another, "superior", restaurant, perhaps this is just as it was always intended: a good place for a course or two and a discussion.
