Lunch: Tuesday- Sunday: 12-3pm
Dinner: Tuesday- Friday: 6.30pm-10.30pm
Found this place after reading a positive review on the Evening Standard but how disappointing.
We both ordered the tasting menu so we can try many dishes. The food was fairly good but the service was absolutely awful. The wine glasses were left for a good 30 mins after we’ve finished with them. The dirty plates sat for about 10-15 mins and were collected once the next course arrived. There wasn’t a thorough explanation of each dish and we were left wondering what we were exactly eating.
The value for the quality of the food and service is extremely over priced. They’re charging haute cuisine prices while their restaurant is literally a regular restaurant serving regular food.
If you’re striving to be a high end/fine dining establishment you should truly consider polishing up your service.
We will NOT be going back nor recommending the restaurant to any of our friends or family.
It’s not my first time coming to Medlar and it won’t be the last. It’s always a wonderful and impeccable experience that’s truly special: the food, ambience and service are faultless. I love this restaurant.
Excellent working lunch, with unobtrusive service and delicious food. My Cod was perfectly cooked and very tasty, and my colleague remarked that he had really enjoyed the pork belly. Dessert was also very good, and the final coffee and sweets were a pleasant treat. A full wine list pleased the client.
Would definitely visit again!
I can't recommend Medlar highly enough. The food is simply stunning, and the service is impeccable.
wonderful as always! we shall come back many times because we really think that medlar is the best restaurant in london
Simply stunning food that makes you think wow wish I could cook like this. The cleverness is the dishes’s ingredients were obvious but the end result was not. The taste sensations came delightfully unannounced and the preseantion was slick and refined. Whilst the food was stunning the service was deliberately light and relaxed but again clever as the staff’s attention to our detail and our needs never wavered. They didn’t overpower and just quietly got on with things with a smile on their faces - a rare find It was just outstanding and I urge all of you to go and but leave a table for 2 please. Well done Medlar, living in Pimlico it’s easily worth the journey!
See you soon and compliments to you all
4 of us enjoyed an excellent Sunday Lunch at Medlar. Attentive and efficient service. Wine list looked a little on the pricey side but I found a couple of reasonably priced options which were delicious. We sat outside on the small terrace pavement, mainly because it was so hot but the restaurant itself looks great, white table cloths throughout but a very relaxed and informal vibe. Service was spot on. Highly recommended.
Gastronomic restaurant similar to the Glasshouse in Kew or la Trompette in Chiswick.
Nice room and good service.
Great value for money given the quality of the ingredients, cooking level and area.
Lovely ambiance and food. Nice for a romantic dinner.
I revisited Medlar after a period of 2 years since my last visit.
This service and food is as good as it was on my previous visit and I highly recommend this restaurant.
Fantastic restaurant with wonderful food and excellent service
Medlar is always outstanding for its food and the set menu provided a great set of choices from vegetarian to fish meat and game. The price for the set lunch is set well and portions are generous.The wine list is extensive but not cheap though there are some reasonable priced wines.
Terrific and innovative menu, great staff and always enjoyable. Favourite restaurant in London
Perfect as ever We sat outside and enjoyed the weather, excellent food and great wine.
The crab raviolo is just the best
If we are coming to London usually for an Art exhibition we usually go to Medlar,s for lunch and nearly always choose the same things crab ravioli and Guinea fowl so cannot give an overview of the food it I am sure all the dishes are just as good as ours! Very nice ambience _ not stuffy but smart with efficient service. Pleasant all round and lunch is a bargain
Went for my husband's birthday after seeing other great reviews. were not disappointed AT ALL. They promptly responded via email to my enquiry about a vegetarian tasting menu & remembered me through the booking so presented both the tasting course options as well as the main menu. The service was wonderful, friendly and professional at the same time. The atmosphere was great, relaxed and slightly shabby chic and lots of space between the tables. My husband had the meat-eater tasting menu, and they were really flexible about changing one of the courses (he does not eat duck). Nothing was an issue. The food was fantastic, the veggie tasting menu one of the best I have had, tasty, fresh, beautifully presented and a bit different to the usual. We also had the wine flight with it . This was tailored to our specific tastes & was generous! I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation if you want to feel spoilt and looked after and like an individual.
French Cuisine, but not as nice as an everyday bistro in regional France and about twice the price. The roadside was busy and noisy. Great wine list but very expensive. Great service. Though a 12.5% “discretionary” service charge on 100 quid bottle of wine and 106 quid fixed price meals is as ever annoying and illogical (as the service is not proportional to the cost).
Another outstanding meal at my favourite restaurant in London. Delicious food, outstanding wine, excellent service and a lovely room.
Food was generally good with the exception of one dish, and at this price I expect every dish to be excellent. The rabbit main course I had was bland, watery and under seasoned - very poor. Sadly paying £32 for a substandard main course doesn’t leave one with a positive experience. Also the booth seating is some of the most uncomfortable and unsupportive I’ve experienced at a high end restaurant. Outside of those criticisms everything else was excellent.
Absolutely incredible food at an unbelievable price! These guys deserve a Michelin star.
Service was excellent, friendly and relaxing. The food was very well cooked, delicious and very enjoyable. This was my third visit, and I would definitely recommend Medlar to my friends.
Really excellent - delicious and inventive cuisine, and much enjoyed
My dining experience at Medlar's was truly a pleasure. The food was delicious. I had the roast lamb plus the potatoes with sauce. I asked for a recommendation on wine and was treated to an delightful red. The service was exceptional, too.
A wonderful meal as always. Polite and attentive staff, delicious food and a wonderful wine selection as well. I highly recommend the mushroom arancini to start, amazing!!
I am happy to report that Medlar is excellent in every respect. The food was, literally, flawless. We had the tasting menu, and every course was as good as I've eaten anywhere. The service was impeccable - very friendly and attentive but not at all intrusive. The sommelier did an excellent job with his recommendations. I honestly can't praise Medlar highly enough - it really is that good!
We enjoyed our dinner with friends and would certainly recommend this exclusive address 👍🏻
I requested a nice table for a birthday celebration but we were stuck in the middle, neither next to the window nor in the attractive rear area of the restaurant. It felt like we were in a cafe; there was no ambience. We had just two courses and 2 x 50ml carafes of wine but the bill was steep. We did receive some birthday ice-cream! The service was good and the food also but we wouldn't rush to go again.
Very enjoyable birthday lunch. Food was delicious and service excellent.
We liked it very much but did not get the 100 points open table afterwards. Coud you please check
We travelled up from Devon for the Chelsea Flower Show and booked Medlar to round the day off - recommended in one of the Broadsheets . We were not disappointed, we are used to eating high quality locally sourced food in Devon . The menu was an exciting offering of seasonal foods ; flavours and quality were faultless. The service was excellent and a lovely ambience, we will certainly return
Three of the dishes had too many flavours that didn't go well together. The other dish was instead a little boring, with no innovative flavours. I feel as if the chef was trying to create an exciting menu, but failed with the flavours. It sounded good on the menu, but I wasn't excited when I ate it, as I usually am when going to a restaurant recommended by Guide Michelin. The texture of everything was perfect though, with fresh ingredients. Others would probably appreciate it, I have very high standards.
The wine was of very good quality and the service was good.
This is a rare find. It is all about the food in a completely relaxed and unpretentious manner. Very knowledgeable sommelier as well. Just perfect.
Always great, best meal I have had for a while. Every course, bang on the money. Excellent!
A delight from start to finish. Professional and friendly staff, amazing food, extensive (but rather pricy) wine list. Crab raviolo a firm favourite and great to see rabbit on the menu. Fantastic cheeseboard. We will be back for next years birthday celebrations !
excellent as always. Delicious dinner and very good service.
We try to ensure that we have one meal at Medlars, each time that we are in the UK and are visiting London. Quality food and wine, a nice atmosphere and good service.
Can’t fault - excellent
Food and service superb and ambiance is very romantic under the tree.
Great overall experience as always!
We had a family get together over a late lunch. it was possible to have a proper conversation, without having to talk over background noise, music etc. The service was very good and not intrusive, other than necessary for serving. We all thought the food was lovely, and reasonably priced.
