Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
“Classic food is beautifully presented and served with an understated aura of luxury” in Giorgio Locatelli’s “dim-lit” (slightly ’90s) Marylebone HQ – one of London’s most “polished” Italian dining rooms (“at its best, nowhere else matches it”). Service is “slick” but prone sometimes to hitting the wrong note.
“A wonderful taste of Italy” inspires fans of Giorgio Locatelli’s “dark”, “classy” rather ’90s Marylebone HQ. The main man has seemed more in evidence this last year – “prowling the dining room to ensure all is well” – and ratings for the “lovingly crafted food” and service (mostly “courteous”, occasionally “stand-offish”) were higher across the board. “Expensive, but worth it”.
“Creative and expertly presented cuisine” has long made Giorgio Locatelli’s “civilised” Marylebone dining room one of London’s better-known Italian destinations; it is “hugely expensive” though, and while it feels “romantic” to some, it’s “too corporate” for other tastes.
A “perennial favourite” for most reporters, Giorgio Locatelli’s “great-looking” (and “calm”) Marylebone Italian offers “very accomplished” cuisine and “amazing” wines; service can be “snooty”, though, and a few refuseniks say the food’s “not really up to the hype and prices”.
Locanda Locatelli, Hyatt Regency Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Deccor a bit hotel – like, but food great."
"If I were to have reviewed this restaurant prior to reading the Harden's review, I would have said exactly that. The food is very good, the service is slick but on occasion it misses. Personally, I love the ambience and the dimly room. I also love the round booths when dining with 4 or more. One of my most favourite Italian Restaurants in London."
