Très belle brasserie française en plein centre de Londres. C'est toujours plein, il faut donc réserver pour avoir une table. Les mets de brasserie servis sont très bons et les quantités sont généreuses. Le service varie d'une fois à l'autre. Le rapport qualité-prix est bien

This place is enormous. It was like walking into a canteen and just about as noisy. The three courses we had all came too quickly and we felt very rushed. The food was not great. The duck was very dried up and it sat in a pool of old-looking lentils. The side dish of roasted vegetables was hard and undercooked. The potatoes never arrived. The creme brulee was badly cooked and had a mousse/scrambled texture. The waiter appeared to be in a bad mood. Can't think of anything positive to say about the place.

Good for a pre theatre meal. It was a pleasant place downstairs in a well lit large historic mirrored room. The service was quick and efficient and we ordered from a standard French style menu. The food was enjoyable but not exceptional. The duck and the trout came with no vegetables so the lack of fresh green vegetables ( i.e. green beans, broccoli etc which are in season) as a side dish would have helped my enjoyment of the meal.

Fantastic interior. A terrific venue. The lights, the glitz, the décor, the buzz and even a pianist. If you can stick to the set menu, it isn't even expensive.

With its unique ambience Zedel offers fine dining in London with its good food and excellent service. I have dined there many times and always enjoy the experience. The only reason for not giving Zedel 5 stars overall is that the lunch formule has hardly changed.

Brasserie Zedel is in a lovely old building with it's original features and really high ceilings. Sometimes, they have a small band playing jazz or a piano player which is lovely. Food and service is very good. The fish soup was really good and the steak with the red-wine sauce was delicious!

It is such a lovely buzzy place and the service and welcome are usually impeccable and I love dining here. The staff at reception dealt calmly with my late arrival (having been forewarned by me) and welcomed my friend on my behalf. My US friend was very impressed by her "French" surroundings and the fact that the Brasserie was able to provide a menu of "gluten free" dishes for her to choose from. My bouillabaise was disappointing - tasted delicious but was cold and a minute quantity (for a dish costing £17.75). Due to the circumstances of the day, I was not able to discuss this with the staff at the time.

The dining room is absolutely fabulous, and you get the chance to peek into the glorious Art Deco American Bar and also the little cabaret venue. The food is authentically French and the set menus are incredible value, particularly given the central London location. The service is friendly and efficient - impressive given the volume of people to serve. Our only little gripe is that one of our party of friends had the bouillabaisse and several of the mussels didn't open - and the waiter didn't seem bothered enough to apologise.

Having been to Zedel before - I suggested this venue for a late night dinner for myself and three friends on a week-end stay in London. They were very thrilled, and will most certainly come again, just as I will - soon.

Very courteous service without being a nuisance.
Food quite satisfactory, taking into account its not too pricey.
Wines seem a bit steep but maybe I'm out of touch with current mark-ups. The basic house red, a non vintage something ,probably from the south of France is £22.00 !! Interesting wines far more !
