“A restaurant I love to return to more than any other!” – Jason Atherton’s “glamorous” and “lively” Mayfair HQ inspires dedication and adoration from its enthusiastic, large fan base: “exemplary cooking with imaginative touches” is the expected highlight and “it’s great seeing Jason so calm and professional at the pass, which comes through in the staff”. That said, ratings this year slipped due to a few more middling experiences: “I so wanted to like Pollen Street Social but it never quite reached the expected heights given the hype and prices!!” Top Tip – “a top spot for a business lunch or dinner”.

“More relaxed than some other more pompous establishments” – Jason Atherton’s renowned Mayfair HQ maintained strong ratings this year. “So slick and so professional”“you can’t help but smile when you eat his food”, which is “reliably superb, as is the warm welcome”. “It’s definitely the kind of place men take their girlfriends to propose – fabulously glamorous.”

“If I want a guest to feel special, this is where I always choose to go!” – Jason Atherton’s “first class” Mayfair HQ is “a great all-rounder with a very nice, light touch to its approach”: most particularly its “clever and immaculately presented food” served “with flair”, but also its relaxed-yet-upscale ambience. “It’s not cheap but – to quote another famous brand – quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten”. “Amazing cocktails” too.

"What can I say this never ever disappoints, it’s fine dining without feeling the stuffiness you sometimes get, I was lucky enough to have Jason cooked for us at the chefs table and every course was perfect. Nothing negative to say about this place "
