Wild Honey London Reviews


Posh Nice - I went here for my birthday dinner last night. Anthony Demetre's name is what has made Wild Honey famous, but it should be known for more than just that. I loved the wood-panelled interior. The food, cooked from 'fresh produce and game' as they say, was outstanding (with one exception - read on). The menu changes daily and by the season, so don't expect to get the same menu two times in a row. I had a pheasant and foie gras pie for a starter, which literally melted in the mouth, and sea bass with leeks and potatoes as my main course, which was also excellent. The swirl of flavours in every dish is delicate as it is unique - you can taste every ingredient, from the caramelized onions to the meat. The service was great, as one would expect for a place of that standard. The only negative thing was that my husband's main course was definitely not up to the mark (venison), but other than that, a faultless experience. As an indication, a main course costs roughly £18. But then it's Michelin-starred and in Mayfair, so no complaints.

The Bee's Knees - Had a very nice meal here on a Friday evening. Wild Honey is lovely and laid back with muted decor and a low key buzzy atmosphere - perfect for taking visiting parents out for dinner. We started off with a bottle of house champagne and a range of the starters including extremely tender limousin veal, superb smoked salmon and some wonderful zingy crab. For mains nearly everyone opted for the lamb which was deemed "excellent" whilst I went for a plate of delicious roast halibut. Brilliantly, they do most wines here by the small carafe as well - perfect if you can't agree on the wine or if there is a red vs. white debated going on. The red meat diners opted for a bottle of Rioja, whilst I happily enjoyed a small carafe of Russian River chardonnay to go with my fish. Having worn high-waisted trousers that evening, dessert was out for me, but I watched longingly as everyone else tucked into raspberry trifle, crunchy wild honey ice cream and a small assortment of cheeses from La Fromagerie. Service was excellent, and prices are reasonable for this part of London (Mayfair): our bill came to around £240 for four including two bottles of wine, a smaller carafe of wine, 3 courses and coffees. Definitely one for my little black book for a future visit.

Yes, he shot it himself - This place is funky. The decor is modern English, with dark wood bar and tables and leather booths; high ceilings; large, round, contemporary light fixtures; and the coolest modern art. It could be a gallery cum restaurant. It’s in a beautiful (former house?) on St George Street in Mayfair across from a church. There are about 15 tables, some with booths.

The food stands out. Meat and lots of meat. And unique meat dishes. Beware: the game may have shot in it. In fact, only one vegetarian dish (which was a starter) on the menu and one fish dish. Back to the meat... veal, but not just any veal, veal that is even younger than normal probably not even weaned from the mother. Tempting? It was our waitresses’ recommendation. Our friends thoroughly enjoyed it. Pigs head as a starter. Yum! Venison haunch with butternut squash and kale, probably shot the day before up north somewhere. And a partridge in a pear tree... or actually with spaetlze and pomegranate sauce. Being the fish eater I am, I opted for the sea bream with roasted carrots, squash and beetroot. It was tasty but a little too salty (my sheep ricotta starter was as well but it didn’t stop me from hovering it down).

The wine list was extensive and impressive. We had a lightly oaked Chardonnay from California and a fabulous Ribero del Duero red from Spain. Both amazing.

I have a few gripes on the place though that warrants my 3 rating: 1) We had to ask for bread and for a pre-dinner drink – they aren’t proactive; 2) when making the booking they didn’t tell us we had to be out after 2 hours and they were rushing us at the end; and 3) Chef, please lay off the salt a bit. This is a nice restaurant and not exactly cheap so I expect a few things when paying that kind of money.

I’ll still be back to test it out again so stay tuned...

I shot it myself... - oustanding food at the latest gastronomic venture from the people that brought you Arbutus in Soho. a shame about the service though (perhaps this will improve over time?). the venue is warmer & more welcoming compared to the stark, minimalist design of it's Soho sister though it still lacks some ambience (the absence of any music probably contributes to this). most of the tables are set in booths making them quite cosy. the menu is small & very gamey though with some seafood options. we were rewarded for our adventurous selection of pigs head for an entree (not a whole head but a terrine-like presentation with robust flavours). venison for a main course was a treat, likewise the rabbit. however the stand-out dish was the veal chop (for two) - mind-bogglingly good. a carefully-selected winelist compliments the menu well. plus there is the added bonus of being able to order any wine by the 1/3 (a trend that seems to be catching on at a number of restaurants in London). assuming the service picks up and if you don't mind a quieter dining environment this is an absolute must! perhaps a pre-prandial at Sketch just around the corner will get the juices flowing too.
