I had the pleasure of experiencing Breakfast, Lunch, Afternoon Tea & Dinner at this restaurant and I cannot recommend highly enough. If you appreciate beautiful surroundings, exceptional service, incredible attention to detail and amazing food you really cannot go wrong making a reservation here. The staff are exceptional - thank you to all of them.

Expensive, 20% service charge with bad service, over rated, when compared to BF at other 5 star hotels, this one should be a ONE star. Will NOT return again!!

The foyer is elegant and stylish and we had a wonderful afternoon tea. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The afternoon tea was just wonderful. Extremely well presented and a perfect mix of savoury and sweet. Lovely unhurried service. A special kind of place.

Came to The Foyer for our daughter's 31 st birthday. Had cocktails in the main bar first which were good and the bar had a pleasant atmosphere. The Foyer is very ornate and beautiful, although you can feel a little 'lost at sea' at the tables in this large room. The service was good and much of the food was... More

Monday 13th Feb, could that be unlucky? Not for us, as we are sat in the Foyer Restaurant, deep inside no other than that famous abode, Claridge's Hotel.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
