The food and service were good. The tables are quite tightly packed in and the room is a lot bigger then expected - felt a bit like a fancy school dining hall. Saying that I would recommend, but not for a small intimate dinner.
Spectacular venue with slick pre- theatre service. Lots of choice - not only set menu. Well cooked and well presented Classic French food.
We had a wonderful experience, we had a tight timeframe with a show shortly after the booking time and the service quick and friendly.
Food was very tasty, and served very quickly.
Would recommend and looking forward to visiting again in the near future.
Have been to Zedels a few times now, but never on a Saturday evening - it was buzzing! Great atmosphere and the usual efficient service and great food. This restaurant is fantastic for pre-theatre dinner. They are very accomodateing and ensure you are served in time for you to go on to your show. A must for all occasions.
Vibrant and noisy, depending on how you view it. Location is very central and food pretty good on the scale catering.
A very nice place, booking advisable as it was busy and there were people waiting or being turned away. The food is classic French, so no modern twist or technical elements. Really liked the art deco style throughout
As ever, the food was absolutely delicious. We had a drink in Bar Americain first and that was just wonderful :) Fantastic decor.
Birthday meal and as ever did not disappoint, food was lovely, great champagne and wine too.
Ideal location for meeting friends from the home counties and beyond.
Attentive service but quality of main courses variable in our group of 6 - quality of the rabbit & chicken dishes was not as good as that of the salmon & beef .
Excellent crème brulees!
Excellent food and fast service; as always.
Had a fantastic time! We did the pre fixe 2 course menu for £11 and it was phenomal! Starter was a carrot salad and the main was a beef chopped up steak like a burger, but the sauce in that was just divine! Chips to go with it which we used to soak up the sauce! It was highly worth the price. The ambience, the liveliness and the decor were fantastic! I would definitely go back from a larger group and try the a la carte menu!
Beautiful restaurant, great food, reasonable prices, ok service.
A great French menu with quality service from the staff. We found the restaurant to be a little noisy therefore making conversation a little difficult.
Zedel never fails to impress, top service but never feel rushed, I love it!
wonderful art deco rooms, different bars and restaurants available. very attentive, efficient and friendly service....so why is it only a 5*?
Well the food let it down... we had a truite aux amandes and a boeuf bourgignon....both fairly mediocre. We finished them, but didnt enjoy...fish rather tasteless and swimming in butter. Beef a bit tough and again lacking in taste. We didnt have any other food on this occasion...
Delicious traditional French food and great service. Perfect for a nice dinner with friends.
We just live the atmosphere, live music, great food, and pleasant waiters
Unfortunately the soup and then the chips came cold and we had to send both back, especially a shame as we were taking friends for their birthday.
The atmosphere, excellent service and ambience make this worth coming down from Northamptonshire.
Beautiful room; excellent service; authentic, if slightly limited, menu; well-prepared and presented food; reasonably priced for the area. Recommended.
It is a wonderful surprise to descend so far and yet find such a large airy bright space laid out in magnificent and unified Art Deco style. The atmosphere is very much of a French Brasserie and the menu is to match. Sadly it is a little noisy and the food unsophisticated. My wife and I enjoyed different yet both typical bistro style salad starters. The main courses were both rather too "mass produced"; my confit de canard rather to drab and dry. My guess is that the freshly prepared simple grills might be a better bet. It is certainly very good value for money.
Had a great time at Zedel. Such a beautiful place, loved the decor and the space in the restaurant. Attentive staff and nothing was too much trouble. Great cocktails to start and then a very filling meal to follow. Loved the atmosphere in the bar and restaurant which had a great buzz to it. Can't wait to come back!
Zedels is always fun, delicious food, friendly service, a great room, a handy location - and the live music, with the simply delightful chanteuse, was the icing on the cake.
Very very poor service
Food was pre-prepared, not fresh and came out cold
I was very disappointed with the service. It was extremely slow and marred the meal .
Also @15% , it seemed high for the quality that we received.
We had a wonderful experience and will certainly be returning soon, probably to visit the Crazy Coqs as well, particularly when Jay Rayner is performing! The food was delicious and my husband was very impressed when he ordered Alsace wine and the correct wine glasses were brought. He also ordered boudin noir to try but found it sweeter than black pudding so didn't finish it and when the waiter queried if there was anything wrong he explained that it was not to his taste and the waiter removed it from the bill which was very kind and unexpected.
This was for a birthday present and a complete surprise. From the outside of the building the size of the restaurant was not apparent and when we first looked I thought there must be some mistake. However, once inside and following the signs downstairs, the building really opened up. From the outside one could not imagine the opulence and grandeur of the Art Deco interior. The Service was very good with waiters passing by and noticing your glass is nearly empty and refilling with wine or water. Great attention to detail. The meal was excellent, delicate and mouthwatering flavours and cooked to perfection. A lovely place to go, for any occasion. We will definitely be returning.
Very good food in a nice venue. It just took a while to order main courses and desserts. Very close to Piccadilly Circus station to.
I love this place. Great value and ambiance at an affordable price and without loud music in the background. Perfect place to have a relaxing meal with friends and no need to shout over music.
Food was very disappointing . We have been before but will not come again
At Zedel again as it is a great place to do business or meet friends. Impressive on all counts and perfectly located. Had a good meal and therefore will no doubt be back again soon.
We love coming here, the ambiance is so French and the food is reliably good. It is also very conveniently situated for theatres, exhibitions and shops.
Brassiere Zedel is a great hidden gem, the first time you visit you will be amazed that such a grand dining hall is in a basement below an innocent looking coffee shop! Great food for the price point, a little noisy, so not necessarily great if you are looking for cosy & quiet, but great if you want grand & fun
Food is variable but fish gougons very good. Can be noisy when busy so not great for an intimate chat. Great location
This was my first visit to Brasserie Zedel so was not sure what to expect. What a pleasant surprise. The setting was amazing and a great atmosphere - a real buzz. The service was very attentive, food delicious and great value for money. Will definitely go back.
This place just never lets us down. The prix fixe & formule menus are excellent. This time I had the formule and luckily my favourite starter is céleri rémoulade. The sea bream (daurade) was excellent, sitting on a bed of succulent ratatouille. My son had the prix fixe menu and the steak haché. OK, just a hamburger and fries but when it's well seasoned and nicely cooked this simple fare is just delicious. The tarte au citron meringué was tart and sweet and a companion had that old favourite 'île flottante' which was equally good. I love Zédel for pre-theatre. They are frighteningly efficient. No wonder it's always packed.
Zedel is a real gem- the setting in particular is like a 1930: film set. Amazing when it is underground near Piccadilly Circus. The food on their set menu is great value even if it is limited in choice.
Been here before and I I’ll keep going there.
There is not much you can do about the noise level I suppose in such a cavernous space. Otherwise it was fine!
Excellent as always!
