Really amazing venue and fantastic good to live up to it!

The staff were great and I’d fully go again for something a little more special than just, brunch.

My boyfriend had a great belated birthday treat and I’ve recommended this to all my friends.

Thank you.

Surprisingly a mix meal at the restaurant.

Les Amuses Bouches did not offer anything special and were put on a large granola bowl (how many hands went there??). The offer deal was not a true offer - it was very limited to 2 starters and 2/3 main courses. The starters and mains were tasty but not whatsoever to the level expected. The tea was £6.50 but a tea bag was used. The service was friendly. Overall a 6/10.

Staff are nice but not that flexible. We asked for the vacant table by the window but was told it was reserved. The table remained vacant through the lunch. In fact the restaurant was only half full - There is a good reason why - it is so much more expensive than it was when I started going some years ago. If you’re like me, with an average sized appetite, then this is just not worth the money. Sadly, this will probably be my last visit.

What a surprise. We were staying at the hotel. Too tired to leave we decided to try the hotel restaurant. It was quiet that evening so we were initially concerned. It was amazing. The food was well prepared and had interesting items.

We'd definitely recommend this to others. Although they've slightly changed the arrangement (seems we'd not been for a year), the buffet - help yourself - spread of starters was excellent, added to which the staff will bring freshly cooked eggs benedict/ eggs florentine etc. They also offered fresh oysters, which were excellent. Main course is now a choice, which they bring to the table whe you are ready. The shoulder of lamb was very good, although i notice they are still serving roasted new potatoes rather than good old fashioned fluffy english roast potatoes. a selection of cakes/ sweets came in a fabulous fancy setting and, again, were very good. Also good choice of cheese and breads etc. on a help yourself basis. Waiting staff were absolutely brilliant, including in topping up glasses (champagne, red or white wine), with no problems swapping to and fro between different ones depending on what we were eating. Good atmosphere and a good number of people were there on the sunday. However, we do think the music was probably unnecessary, or, if not that, then probably a tad too loud (with the guitarist drowning out the singer too often).

Service was slow despite having enough staff and a not so busy night. My server never brought my wine but also didn’t put it on the bill so I guess never took the order despite my pointing it out on the menu. It wasn’t just our table as the table next to us was there before us and did not get served until we had finished our entree.

The food was very good. I had the tomato tartare, which was excellent and my wife had the smoked salmon, which was also very good. The pork belly was rather fatty and could have done with more rendering. The price was rather high but that's the West End for you!

Beautiful restaurant with adequate food. Very personable waiter who was simply overwhelmed. It seemed that staffing was not a priority. One of my dining companions waited what seemed like an eternity for her wine that she had ordered. Overall, even with our very personable waiter, restaurant was mediocre at best!

Gosh what an experience! The selection of food as amazing. From Eggs Benedict before you tuck into to an amazing selection of starters - prawns, octopus, pork pies. squid, quiches with several types of salads to choose from. You are then invited to taste a variety of different cheeses before you have your main course. My sea bream with roast potatoes and mixed vegetables was mouth watering. Then your desert! What a surprise when a window shaped three tiered wooden arrangement arrived with little different deserts in each window. All this with free flowing wine! Great!

The website and menu choice of champagne by the glass didn’t match; I found the limited choice surprising for such an establishment. My dessert was far too cold, it should have been room temperature.

Not many bottomless Sunday brunches serve decent quality champagne throughout and generously. It's more expensive than most, but worth the difference just on the champagne alone compared to Prosecco. But the starter buffet was really good quality, particularly on shellfish, plus add in Oysters as well Eggs Benedict or Florentine cooked to order and we could have stopped there. But the main courses were excellent too. Less impressed with cheese and desserts, but we weren't hungry at all by then. Liked the room and the staff were good. My wife doesn't eat oysters or shellfish, but there was plenty of other choice, all good quality, and we will be back soon!

The format changed and (having spoken to other diners) left a lot of us extremely disappointed. The main course is now a la carte which is fine however all dishes are served with bland boiled cauliflower & broccoli even the cauliflower steak!!? The starter table consists of mainly vegetables and salads, only plain ham and pepperoni on the charcuterie board (I could get more variety for £3 at Sainburys) gone are the prawn cocktails, scotched quail eggs and breakfast buffet items one expects for brunch. The cheese board had pre-cut cheddar-like cheese and one blue cheese all inedible due the crust forming from extended exposure. No brie, camembert, goats cheese, manchego etc. The staff were wonderful as usual but the experience is no longer decadent, I feel cheated paying more money for lesser quality. Unless this changes back, after nearly 10yrs I will not be returning.

This is our second visit to The Montagu Kitchen. We enjoyed it, though the selection of food is not as good as last December (both occasions are the same price). Staff are attentive and friendly. Good ambience.

The Churchill Hotel is a luxurious oasis of calm on the edge of Portman Square and very conveniently situated just north of Oxford Street.

The Montagu Kitchen restaurant is a quiet, elegant and spacious venue offering well prepared European- style food and a good wine list. The set lunches and dinners are good value for the quality provided and the restaurant excels in its professional, discrete yet friendly service.

There is some background music but, overall, it is a place where you can enjoy quiet and intimate conversation as friends or as a business group.

Vastly overpriced for the quality of food and level of effort put into Christmas Dinner. When you are charging 110 pounds per person, minimum standards must be met, and the Montagu failed to meet them. The small 5 oz filet was clearly neither prime beef nor aged at all. The turkey option was a dried out roll of turkey and dressing that appears to have been prepared well in advance and merely heated up. The dessert table was what you would expect at a children's buffet table for a typical Sunday meal. Big mistake.

Had booked our annual Christmas lunch on a Saturday for 13. Incredible service. I had sent orders prior to booking and every seat was named along with Christmas crackers. The food was great, only issue was the vegetarian main, which wasn't enjoyed by both vegetarians. The service made the meal and the staff are a credit to the restaurant.

Had the festive afternoon tea. Sandwiches were delicious. Scones are the big ones, not the mini scones so at the end we were full. Overall experience was very good. It was noisy at first due to a group/company business party but once that was finished it was lovely and relaxing. Staff are helpful and the atmosphere pleasant. Would recommmend for a casual afternoon tea and catch up or business lunch.

We always come to the restaurant in early December for the Sunday brunch and always enjoy. This year they have introduced a fish and seafood bar which part of my party loved but I noticed that there was less for the vegetarian. Shame. Also less choice with desserts. No home made chocolate. What a shame, particularly as the price has gone up considerably since last year.

We were staying close by and thought it looked promising...
I'm giving the food 2 stars because I've had a lot worse, but it was really a little disappointing.
Starter was passable though uninspiring, the main - I had slow cooked lamb cannon which was surprisingly tough. Broccoli and the lamb sauce terribly over salted. Gave up on the lamb, too chewy. My friend had rib-eye steak medium-rare, which arrived very rare though just about acceptable.
Presentation was ok, but cooking seriously lacking, sorry.
Staff were friendly, wine ok but London prices of course!
