    Posh brasserie specializing in Central European dishes and serving the best Wiener schnitzel in town.

    You could look inside this place and think it’s been around for a century, but in fact it only opened as a restaurant in 2003. Breakfasts here are a firm favorite among London’s movers and shakers. Read more

    Longtime Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey usually has his Sunday roast--an early-afternoon meal of meat and potatoes--at this café, located on London's famous Picadilly Blvd.

    Even though this restaurant doesn't specialize in traditional British goods, there are still some classic dishes (like the treacle tart) that are to die for.

    Don't forget you can always rock up without a reservation, have a drink at the bar and get a table. Shhhhhhhh.

    George Nimeh · December 4, 2010

    The Wolseley's ever-glam, eclectic space and the "beautiful people" crowd make for happy dining. Their decadent afternoon tea is one of the most stylish in town. Read more · October 25, 2011

    Decent eggs florentine, delicious pancakes with berries! Even without adding maple syrup. Can be crowded, better to book first

    Awesome interior and I love the Bircher Müsli...feel like I am in a time-machine going back to the past when I enter this special place.

    I love the food at the Wolseley. Famous among the stars, however, they do live up to their expectations. The price isn't shocking and the service and decor is a thumbs up from me.

    The old Wolesley car showroom on Piccadilly. Best tables are at the back of the room up the stairs. They're like little Salon Privés looking down on the restaurant and are great for people watching! Read more

    Good spot for breakfast/brunch. Great staff. The Arlington was amazing; the muffin was just perfect. Pancake was good too. Mozart hot drink wasn't all that.

    The Eggs Benedict is a great starter. Rib eye steak was tender, but for melt in the mouth meat, go for the lamb.

    Very nice place, great ambience and posh good food.. Celeb factor, if it matters for you.. The scallops, cauliflower mash, food and wine are fine! If you like, Schnitzel is the best in town they say

    I know this place is supposed to have great service and food but I have to call it like I see it... Service was average at best, food was slightly better than service.

    Very strict time limits on the tables. Only eat three courses if you don't mind indigestion.

    The Croque Monsieur is excellent in quality but lacking in quantity! Menu says 'No Photography' so technically this photo is illegal :-)

    Me encanta la comida en el Wolseley. Famoso entre las estrellas, sin embargo, no cumplen con las expectativas del Heredero Prio no es sorprendente y el servicio y la decoración es un aprobado.

    Отличное место доя завтраков. Яйца Бенедикт и Арлингтон супер, есть фруктовый салат и свежая выпечка, но кофе отвратительный:)
