This is my second visit with a group of frienda and i was even more impressed. Impeccable service, our waiter was at our table to assist just at the right moment. Food was outstanding. Atmosphere was fun and buzzing. Overall pretty good value. I will keep going back.

Beautiful room and great atmosphere. Very good value, especially given the location. Slight feeling of being on a production line, but I guess that’s what keeps prices down. Food and presentation good. Service very friendly. Would have scored higher except some of our party served well after others. (And the wait for English Mustard was disappointing even after three requests!)

Lovely ambience, the decor is outstanding, it transports you back in time. The wine list is good and relatively inexpensive and we were more impressed with the light starters than the mains, slightly less tasteful. Impeccable service. Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic central London standby. Food is always well prepared and tasty, service generally friendly, but above all what superb value! A really decent meal in a great ambience for an incredibly reasonable price. There is nothing not to like.

Third visit to Zedel for pre theatre dinner. Great service and classic French food. Asked what time we needed to leave for the theatre and offered a starter with the main course to ensure that we had time. Enjoyed the buzzing atmosphere and ambience. Would recommend to others. Have been to the cocktail bar before and liked that too. Great value for central London location.

Good food, nice atmosphere. Great cocktails. Felt the lighting could be a little better as in less bright it’s a bit too bright. Good service we had a lot of food so wasn’t too expensive for what we had.

Lived up to expectations, it is hard to believe that such good quality in every regard can be delivered for such a reasonable price. When asked about a London restaurant Zedel's is the first recommendation and will remain so.

Three friends and I went for a meal after a theatre visit. It was really busy which is always a good sign and was a good job we had reserved a table. Two of us had the Menu Formule (three courses and a glass of wine for £19.95 which was excellent . Even though the other 2 went for A la Carte ,it was very reasonably priced and lovely food. The service was faultless. The restaurant is beautiful with marble pillars. We would certainly go again.

Pat and I had eaten here several times before so we knew what to expect from our visit. It has become a favourite for us, our "go to restaurant". As always, service, food, atmosphere absolutely first rate. Location fantastic with the area offering so much, such as theatres which was our reason for our day in London. A must place to visit, you will not be disappointed. Pat and Kevin

Possibly my 3rd or 4th trip to Brasserie Zedel. This time there were 5 of us and we all enjoyed our main courses and desserts. Steak is always a good option here and the menu offers a lot of choice. It's an enormous restaurant and we chose a corner seat as it can be a bit noisy. The wine is reasonably priced - you don't need to avoid the cheaper options. It's well situated near to Piccadilly Circus but in a quieter side street. There was live music while were dining which created a lovely ambience. There is a dedicated gluten-free menu and as I'm wheat-intolerant, it was great to have so much choice.

The Art Deco main room is impressive and it felt like being in Paris! Service was great and friendly. The food standard has gone a bit down compared to previous visits. Chicken with hunter sauce and boeuf bourgignon weren't up to standard.
But overall good value for money.

Classic Corbin and King restaurant: good ambience and high end fittings (nice Mitteleuropa undercloth with embroidery under the white tablecloth) with undemanding comfort food. Advantage of nice array of wines available by the glass. You can't really go wrong, but you won't be challenged either.

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.

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.
