Recs for Green Park / Mayfair AND recs for lunch spots with (well-mannered and epicurean) kids!!!

My husband and I are going to be in London with our 2 children (ages 5 and 2) next month. We have 2 date nights planned but also need recs for great restaurants for lunch that welcome kids. They're not "kids menu" kids so I guess we're looking for foodie spots that also have high chairs and don't mind a bit of a mess. We're happy with gastropubs (do pubs allow kids?) too.

Also, we have 2 date nights planned--one night is at the Dock Kitchen and the other is still up in the air. Any suggestions for a spot near Green Park / Mayfair that's fun, a bit buzz-y and with great food. We're open to any cuisine--just no Michelin stars.

    The Wolsely might be an idea for lunch. If they are not keen on high chairs and mess you could try Quaglino's or Langan's Brasserie, which are a bit more mass market.

    For your evening slot The Greenhouse is worth a look. Not really a place for young children though.

    Tripadvisor or london-eating are good sources for multiple reviews.

      Brasserie Zedel got some love from the critics and is well-priced and great atmosphere. Apparently reasonably kid-friendly too.

        I liked El Pirata:
