Wiltons never changes and it's just as well, because it does what it does very well. The menu isn't huge and the dishes are priced on the high side (the wines, even higher), but if you're looking for a classic English restaurant in Central London,...More

We enjoyed traditional favorites including Dover Sole, Fried Whitebait, Smoked Salmon, at this 18th century elegant restaurant on Jermyn Street in Mayfair. Service and food were all great. A bit pricey, but worth the experience.

It's a great restaurant. Best smoked salmon in London. Our meals are always white - fish, potatoes - really delicious. And the crowd is always fun to look at - hodgepodge of family lunches, business meetings. Always fun and somewhat eclectic. Highly recommend!

You will be fine dressed as you describe. Wiltons isn't 'snobby', just likes everything to be elegant. You will have a memorable experience.

I do not think you would feel comfortable wearing them. But, if you must wear them, suggest you call and ask.

Definitely a jacket - probably not a tie but it is very smart and you might feel underdressed in certain clothes. Definitely not shorts and sandles place!!!!
