Probably one of the most faultless dining experiences I’ve ever had. Incredible attention to detail, knowledgeable servers offering inspired wine pairings in gorgeous settings that make you feel like you’ve been transported from central London to a lush green secret paradise. The private dining room looks amazing as well!

I had an early booking for a Saturday night. The restaurant is in a quiet side street and it's a surprise to find it in its garden location so close to Hyde Park. There was a choice of 3 x 4 course menus from which i chose mainly fish. I'm not generally a deserts person but the pistachio creme brulee with icecream was amazing. Even the brioche bun that came with the starter was the lightest and tastiest I'd ever eaten. The herring with multi coloured radish 'fin' garnish looked too good to eat. What a combination of spanish dance theatrics by the wait staff, artistic flair in the food presenation and scientific gastronomy: amazing. My personal taste would be less showmanship from the staff: the food is the star of the show and should be left to speak for itself. A wonderful dining experience.

The restaurant is very elegant. Food is delicious and I would give it 5 stars if the Wagyu beef wasn’t too fat and a little chewy than the another restaurant which I tried the night before. The food decor is an art and the wine specialist recommended good wines with a little bit history of the brand.

Last Friday, we had the pleasure to visit the Greenhouse for the very first time and on behalf of all of us present, we would like to say: thank you.

Long story short, thank you for a fantastic experience, to say that all of you made us travel is a clear understatement, from the food, to the wine, through the atmosphere and the flawless service, the meal we experienced last week went far beyond our expectations. We have had the privilege to live a number of gastronomical experiences over the years and it is safe to say that you belong right among the top of them all.

The service was very very good. Everyone were very kind and polite. It’s just that the food was really not tasty. We had the tasting menu, vegetarian and the normal one. The dishes were very pretty but not tasty at all. We don’t remember even one dish that we enjoyed. We paid 400 pounds for a meal we didn’t enjoy. Not good food unfortunately.

We had dinner here on Tuesday, 8-1 and it was an absolute AMAZING experience. The food was really amazing and so was the wine that the sommelier chose for us. Would definitely recommend you to everyone going to London around us. We flew there from the Netherlands and it was super worth it. Thank you for the fantastic evening.

OUTSTANDING !!!
I went to The Greenhouse to celebrate a special occasion with a friend.
The service is amazing, waiters are friendly and professional, which make us feel well and confortable.
The food was exceptional, really tasty, starting from the canapé to the desert. Our favorite was the veal blanquet which is completely twist by the chef and make you feel the true taste of blanquet!
Wine was really good as well.
The Greenhouse will stay in our memories !!!
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE TEAM!!!

There is little to say about The Greenhouse other than it is perfect.

From when you turn off Hays Mews into their tranquil garden you know you are in for a luxurious treat. Front of house and waitering staff are wonderfully simultaneously attentive and absent, all knowledgable about all of the dishes. They work under the watchful eye of the head sommelier Elvis, and if there is anything you ever need to know about wine, this wonderful genius will be able to help. His recommendations are beyond comparison. Finally the new chef had a high bar to reach to in taking over The Greenhouse, but he has done this absolute ease and the reputation of this institution is safe in his hands.

The venue itself is beautiful. It is quiet and non-intrusive, the tables are well spaced, each with candles and art work on them. Lit subtly from above the tables glow in the gently and warmly lit room.

Simply put, it is perfect.

The staff made us feel welcomed and comfortable. The sommelier gave excellent help choosing wine The setting is very relaxed and romantic and the food was delicious. I had the foie gras, veal sweetbreads, lobster and chestnut soufflé, my partner had sardine, Veal sweetbreads, turbot, and chocolate. It’s hard to choose a favourite but I think the most delicious were the lobster and sardines. As it was for a joint birthday celebration we were delighted to receive a surprise extra dessert. The appetisers, palate cleansing sorbet and petite fours were lovely also. I would definitely eat here again.

Fabulous restaurant for a celebratory (expensive!) meal. This was the third time I've been and we decided to have to £155 9-course tasting menu. Wow! Every dish was interesting, made with the best ingredients and beautifully presented. The service was excellent throughout. When we asked the sommelier to suggest wines he guided us to a Bourgogne chardonnay which was great with the strong flavours of the first few dishes, and then a Greek red with the hare main course and it was absolutely fabulous.
I particularly enjoyed the small oyster amuse-bouche, delicate marinated sardine, the crab salad with the caviar, the scrumptous hare in pastry, and best of all the 'avocado' desert which was more about green apples than avocado but really delicious. My only critisism would be that the menu as a whole experience is too rich, with bold, protein-heavy dishes of meat, fish, sweatbreads, egg ... I could have done with some more veg or salad.
Overall a great restaurant for a treat and we felt very well looked after. £230 per person total with 3/4 bottle wine each.

The set lunch was good value for money with excellent bottle of wine included. Pity that the top quality bread service has been replaced by a sourdough loaf on the table ( ours was burnt at the edges ) and that the crab amuse bouche starter is now a sorbet towards the end of the meal - the balance of the menu now feels more sweet than savoury. Great to have a cheese plate as a dessert option though. The service was good but we had to pace the young sommelier from filling our glasses too often. Often had just been done by the head sommelier.

Food and service were both impeccable with really nice wine included with the lunch set menu which makes it good value.
Complementary small dishes were given when we ordered a glass of champagne each which was a lovely touch.
