    Overall restaurant is good. The service was not good we wait 40 min before we received our drinks. This included the water. Our food order appeared to get lost in the kitchen as tables arriving later than us received their starters and dinner before we got our starters

    The venue is lovely and opulent, the musicians and singer were good but not overpowering the conversations, the food was very good but admit that I have forgotten what I ate, though the waitress was very attentive to my dietary needs. For some reason my EU bank card did not work but the UK one did.

    A hidden gem - a theatrically large and gloriously Art Deco styled room full of a gentle hubbub of people meeting up, with attentive (but not overly so) staff and well-cooked and very tasty traditional French food (Coq au Vin etc). The only problem with Brasserie Zedel is getting a table!

    Repeat visit. Tend to go there at least once on each visit to London. Great atmosphere, however on this occasion I did feel that the quality of the food had dropped off a little. Might just have been an off night. By London standards it remains decent value for money.

    i am a huge fan of Brasserie Zedel, the setting, the buzz, the food, always a reliable and fun place to go. This time, it was a pre-theatre trip which was ideally placed near to the Piccadilly theatre - the cocktails did not disappoint and as usual the food was delicious! thank you!

    Incredibly expensive for what we actually ate and drank. £180 for 1 glass of wine, water and some crab and two bits of fish with carrots. Service excellent and friendly which was the only good thing about it. A shame as been here many times in the past and used to be great. An example of many restaurants now..you get much less for much more. Plenty of other places to go for better value.

    Very unusual but we had a unfortunate start when a waiter spilt a glass of wine and it landed over me. The head waiter was very apologetic and deducted that cost from the final bill. A different waiter attended our table who seemed very put out; he was grumpy and unhelpful. When we came to place our order he then announced that the plat du jour was unavailable - this after we had been sitting studying the menu for 15 minutes. I asked for a clean serviette which was never forthcoming. He was brusque when he served our food. When he presented our daughter with her happy birthday plate he just put it on the table with no acknowledgment or a smile. As it was a special occasion we were rather disappointed
    Brasserie ZedelResponded on March 18, 2024
    Dear LeonoraD, I'm sorry your meal wasnt up to expectations, we will investigate with the staff involved and ensure there is no repeat of this behaviour in the future. Kind regards Michael

    My friends ordered Beef braised in Beer and were very happy with their choice. I wanted smth light and ordered Ragout of artichoke hearts. It was mistake- do not recommend this dish to anyone: lots of tomato sauce with bits of artichoke hearts and couscous. Disappointment. Service was not as good as I expected at this place which I used to come often before pandemic. The last drop was the cloakroom where I was initially given a wrong coat in exchange to the token.

    My friend & I meet here quite regularly for lunch. The venue is beautiful. We had a wam welcome & generally the service was friendly if a little hesitant. I understand the difficulties for the hospitality industry but it didn’t seem as confident as usual. I always have the delicious soufflé which I didn’t find as tasty this time. A little stodgy perhaps. The tables for two are quite squashed together which made me more aware of others being so close physically. I will keep returning as enjoy the ambience.

    Zedels has long been our favourite place to eat and to celebrate a special occasion in town. We have recommended it to friends and other members of our family over the years. We chose to celebrate my birthday on the Saturday 13th and in the slot which says 'occasion' we put' birthday'. I half imagined that I might get a little cake with a candle at best. Of course perhaps not the dimmed lights across the restaurant and a breakout of 'Happy Birthday' as they do in some restaurants in Paris (which we have witnessed and enjoyed). Don't worry, despite this, we will be back very soon to enjoy the ambience of our favourite restuarant in town. Leonora Davies

    I do like Brasserie Zédel. It’s a beautiful place. The food is okay but I do feel that the special deals are not prepared on sight. I don’t like Jazz and found it far too loud for conversation. Some nice soft French music would be preferable. I must say that the service was excellent.

    Server could not read the room, including that some guests did not appreciate his peculiar and invasively friendly humor. Steak was burnt on the outside and very tough but the rest of the food was good (but not memorable). Ambience is great - very nice setting and lively.

    We went there with our group of girlfriends. The venue is exquisite indeed, great choice for a girls night out! However, despite the beautiful venue, neither the service or the food really raised to the expectations, in our opinion. First of all, the menus are in French to start with - only on request they would give out menus in English. There is a great choice of food on the menu, for which our basic French learnt in school was not enough. At first we did not see this as a problem, since we were in a French restaurant, however we had to wait for a good 15 mins until a member of staff noticed us to bring the English menu. Throughout the night we experienced similar waiting times when trying to get their attention. It seemed that either they were understaffed, or they were just not attentive enough with the customer. In the end the food was alright - nothing disappointing, equally nothing really outstanding. However, the only dish that I remember enjoying the most was the chocolate dessert! Truly delicious! Overall, our evening was great, despite the slow customer service or the food expectations. I still believe that it's a bit overrated for what it is, however if you think that you pay for the venue, ambiance and then the option to pop in the Americain bar straight after, then it's a great choice!

    This is the place for the kind of high-octane, glam evening out that makes you feel you’re in one of the most exciting cities in the world. Serves good French food too. Zedel also has a bar and cabaret theatre. The restaurant is in an large and opulent Art-Deco room - originally part of a hotel modelled on ocean going liners. My only complaint was that on a Saturday night, Zedel was almost too crowded, but with good reason. A very special place.
