I have been to Zedel many times and generally the food and service is very good.

Slightly disappointing. The room is amazing. But the food disappoints. Tasteless and feels very mass-produced. Although in its favour, it is reasonably priced. The service on this occasion was poor. It took ages for anyone to take our order. Trying to get the eye of a waiter for eg more water was very hard. You get the feeling they rely on the beautiful nature of the room so as not to have to focus on the basics!

My wife and I had an early supper at the Zedel last week. Great large brasserie atmosphere with both tables and a long bar with mirror, so good for people watching!. Well balanced menu.
Excellent oysters, but the sole dish was rather dry and unappetising. This was fed back to the waiter who said he'd pass it on the the kitchen.

The space is very impressive and the good was nice and good value. The service however was abrupt and rude (and not just from one waiter but the 2 or 3).

The Formule menu wasn't as good as a few months ago. The duck confit was dry and tasteless and the lemon tart far too sweet.

Lovely decor made for a really lovely atmosphere! Service was excellent from entering the restaurant through to leaving. Food was great at great prices! I was only disappointed that they had no lemon tarts left for desert, as part of the Formule menu! Would definitely recommend Zedel, suitable for all occasions☺️

We had the Formule at £19.75, the food was not something delicious, it was nothing special, it was not a meal to remember. The service was very fast, but our waiter seemed a bit irritated. The ambiance was good, the decorum is nice, the restaurant is quite spacious. Overall, we had mixed feelings about the experience.

Located in the ballroom of what was the Regent Palace Hotel, the surroundings are very lavish. It is a typical French brasserie with an authentic French cuisine. I have been on several occasions and have never been disappointed. It does attract celebrities. It is just off Piccadilly Circus

Always a favourite.
Although your in the basement of an old hotel, the lighting and decor make you feel certainly well above ground level.
Medium sized main courses, well sized desserts.
Happy, cheerful staff.
If you can't read French menu's, just ask for an English version.

Have been here a few times and overall it is always good!

Ambience is unique and one of a kind in London.

Food is always fantastic

Service in general was good but waiter could have a bit more attention to tables and customers. Service between courses and also when waiting to pay took longer than normal and in a couple of occasions had to remind the waiter.

In general, this is a great restaurant which is very different to other London restaurants. Definitely worth a visit!

The Brasserie was a pleasant surprise - great location for pre-theater lunch or dinner, and although completely underground, the decor and lighting make you feel as though you are dining in a bright, cheerful, sunny spot, no matter the weather. The menu is extensive, with lots of favorites. I had the plat du jour - lapin a la moutarde! What fun! The meat was a bit dry (often the fate of plats du jour, but deliciously sauced, and the tagliatelle were perfect. All in all, just right, and a fun location. I will definitely be back.

Having been to Zedel many times before we were looking forward to a quick dinner in a nice atmosphere before the theatre. We were a few minutes late for our booking due to Christmas crowds and traffic and then had to queue for several minutes before we were shown to our table. We ordered three courses and the wine arrived. After a few more minutes the waitress came over and said that as we had to give the table back in just over an hour would we like her to bring the starter and the main course at the same time. Well no, actually... I don't really wish to be eating my quiche lorraine and my steak hache from the same plate! And at no time during the booking process or being shown to our table or ordering had we been told we could only have the table for an hour and a half from the booking time. It's not as though we wanted to linger as we had a theatre curtain up to make. but being told we hadn't enough time at the table to even eat the meal we had ordered made for a stressful and rushed meal and not at all a good start to our evening out. Maybe Zedel has been overcome by it's own success and now believes it is more important than it's customers' enjoyment.

Booked here for pre-theatre dinner. I’d been here previously, but just for drinks at the bar. The brasserie was bustling when we arrived. I get the impression it’s always busy here due to the location.
Food and service were good, nothing particularly notable, but quick and hearty food. Good for pre-theatre as they are well equipped for it.
