34 Grosvenor Square, London W1K 2HD
Latest critic review: April 23, 2013
Critics' score: 7 out of 10

The people behind Le Caprice and Scott's have opened a 100-seat steak restaurant in the heart of Mayfair - expect it to be a celebrity haunt. It has a focus on rare breeds and game, while also offering a collection of lighter dishes. It's designed by Martin Brudnizki who also designed Hix, Scott's, Dean St Townhouse and Les Deux Salons among many more.

"we had a nice time, the staff are incredibly well-drilled and the surroundings (and the toilets) are of the highest standards. All this glamour, and fuss, and money, for me, just needs to have more to recommend from the food to justify it all." READ REVIEW

"Everything we eat is almost excellent. Almost. It speaks of a well-drilled kitchen but I’m not really feeling the love." READ REVIEW

"I like 34 and I’ll go back. The dining room (designed by Martin Brudnizki) is so elegant, it’s like a magnet. The service is better than I’ve experienced at other Caring restaurants." READ REVIEW

"I don't want to sound coarse by banging on, but this certainly isn't a budget choice: however, it was indulgent, nostalgic and exciting, like lying on a rug made of a tiger. I loved it." READ REVIEW

"For me, 34 lacked the theatrical buzziness of rival opening, The Delaunay. But it will doubtless become a favourite of the Mayfair set, who can watch their steaks sizzling on the grill, all trace of smoke whisked away by a top-of-the-range air conditioning system." READ REVIEW

"(price) allowances made, 34 is, in its unobtrusive way, very good. You notice the food only if you consciously choose to pay attention – it doesn't raise its voice – but if you do, you'll see that the cooking is bang on target." READ REVIEW

"Everything, from the look of the place through the killer steaks to the desserts, is bang on. It is sexy and smart. Most of all it feels like it has been there for years rather than just a few weeks." READ REVIEW

"I had the now-ubiquitous wagyu sirloin, which I ordered rare, and came medium, verging on well done. It was the only thing that was well done." READ REVIEW
