Absolutely amazing dining experience at galvin. Great location, stunning views of london. Staff were friendly, polite, attentive, chatty. Food was just amazing. This place deserves the Michelin * back! Starters full of flavour Wellington - an experience on its own and you will leave feeling...content after ordering this. Wine was also great! Cannot wait to return.More

My husband took me here last night as a surprise for our 20 year’s wedding anniversary. What an amazing experience of fine dining. Honestly, we were blown away! From the stunning views of London, the ambiance, to the outstanding service and excellent food... what a...beautiful evening. I had Marbled Duck Liver, Apricot, Hazelnut, Pain d'Epice and my husband had the escalopes as a starter. For our main course we both had the beef. We both agree that Galvin at Windows of the World is by far our best dining experience so far! We were amazed by the service... it was phenomenal! The waiters and waitresses were always present to serve us with whatever we needed. Face masks were worn , they were immaculately presented, they were friendly , professional and polite. What more can I say! Peter, the manager came to our table to check that we were ok and what a lovely man he is! We were given complimentary champagne by beautiful Antonia, who was the assistant manager to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This was then followed by a pretty celebration plate which read ... Happy anniversary! These simple gestures made it an extra special evening and we felt so lucky and spoilt! We also made an observation of the staff preparing a nearby table for a party of 10 guests. Wow... what a show! We enjoyed watching the preparations and admired the great teamwork of staff who managed to create the perfect dining table so effectively in just a few minutes! We loved watching them and were excited to witness the efficiency of this task! The entire evening was perfect and the staff played a huge part. Thank you to all the staff who made our evening extra special... Peter, Antonia, Adriana, Erico, Matteo, Andrea Ricardo.More

We chose to spend a nice evening at this supposedly luxury restaurant. The feeling you get is that there are dozens of service providers hovering around without a clear interest to serve you, so overall the service was slow and poor (3 hours). The food...is overrated with very small and untasty dishes. Not sure why they were rated for a star but the food was very plain, with no imagination whatsoever. It is not enough to have a long list of exotic ingredients if the result does not taste better than a Mcdonald's you can buy with less than 10% of this exaggerated restaurant bill. Do not recommend it, not for the price they charge!!!More

We’ve dined at Galvin windows a handful of times and twice since Marc Hardiman and Peter Avis took over at the helm. This time you could really see that this pairing are hitting their stride. The food was faultless and it felt that chef Hardiman...is now hitting his stride with a menu that represents his style of cooking. Special note that the hidden anchovy on the tomato starter added an extra depth and the lavender on the duck was a welcome flavour. From the wonderful welcome from Zoe on exiting the lifts to Mya showing us our table, Peter checking that our experience was above and beyond. This is a winning combination and team, we will be back thank you.More

Stunning views, a very comfortable restaurant, the food was adequate, but could be so much more, It would not take much to lift it to regain a Michelin star! Staff being a little more engaged, with the meal being served would be a start.More

Avoid at all cost Total disappointment I tried to book for our anniversary. we do not eat meat or shellfish so as the website states a fish choice I asked what they would have on the day. 'Snotty' Miya told me that the only way...to find out was to ring after 12 the same day as they had no way of knowing before then. It claims an amazing roof panorama view so as I booked a month in advance I requested a window table. This was also apparently 'impossible' and I was 'told' to come to their bar 30 minutes in advance and they might have one available. They have no understanding of welcome or professional service, cleanliness or decor. So we abandoned the restaurant but decided to try the bar with the panoramic view . It was dirty , needed re-decorating , had no resemblance to the picture on their website ands the panoramic view was through dirty windows with a worn design on them. I note that they lost their Michelin star recently and Hilton have a big job to re-create what is shown on their website. In reality the website and it's claim are total deception. I also doubt the validity of the comments on googleMore

The service and food were amazing. Our son is living in London and he surprised us by purchasing 2 nice bottles of wine which he took to the restaurant in advance and they served those with a nominal cork fee. They remembered him and were...extremely kind. We did the 7 course tasting menu and each item was very good. All of this and the views are unbelievable. Highly recommend!More
