Pre/post Theatre
Le Garrick, located in London's theatreland, is an intimate French restaurant. There is a homely restaurant at ground level, while at lower ground level the friendly bar/dining room has intimate nooks for romantic moments. Expect classics and favourites of French bistro cooking; grilled entrecote with sauce poivre & pommes frites or lemon tarte with creme fraiche among the classic desserts. The 2/C prix fixe menu is a lifesaver pre-theatre. In an area that's full of chains, Le Garrick is a one-off.

Beaujolais Nouveau Day November 21 is a highlight in the French calendar. Open from 10am for a traditional Beaujolais breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Guest chef series: Tuesday 26 - Friday 29 November
Daily changing 3/C lunch menu 12pm-4pm £45pp, including aperitif. Owner, Charles, has just returned from the Basque region, where he spent time with acclaimed chef, Pascal Berrotaran. Expect dishes such as Chipirons à la Luzienne (baby squid), Tartare au trout, Bellota ham and Duck breast.

I’ve eaten at Le Garrick a few times recently. Always a fab meal and spectacular value if you have a pre-theatre menu.

Very warm welcome and cheerful service. Downstairs is intimate but convivial. The French bistro food is simple and delicious. A regular place for me - an unsnobby and friendly restaurant.

Le Garrick is amazing! We had our Christmas party here in the week and the staff were very welcoming, knew their stuff and had our food delivered on time! We were a party of 8 and we never got forgotten. And the food was incredible! We had the Christmas menu so not sure if my options are on the usual day-to-day menu however I recommend the Parsnip Soup and Butternut Squash Risotto!
I will be returning for sure!

We managed to get the last bottle of beaujolais, which was lucky as we'd gone for beaujolais nouveau!

My beouf bourguignon was meaty and tasty. My friends loved their moules and onglet steak. We each had desserts. I think I won with the creme brulee.

We had a cosy table upstairs. Sadly we were not offered any read, very strange b for a French restaurant. But le garrick is a classic and I will return.

The food is good but not better than 3 out of 5. The steak was small and average; the soup was average ; the lemon tart was ver sharp and had an unpleasant twang of not cooked egg. The wine was unnecessarily expensive. A caraf of average plonk should be no more than £12 and it was £20. However the ambience in the cellar was very good and the service was good.

The noice was terrible. We were given a table in a doorway, with people running past us the whole time. Bought a red wine at 55 pounds. IT was much too warm. When I remarked that to the waiter, he suggested pusting in an ice bucket. You reallønn do not know how to handel wine, do you.- We thought we ordered a table at a French restaurant. This was not much French. We did not travel from Norway to have such an experience!

My colleagues and I had a really nice meal at Le Garrick. On arrival, we had such a welcoming greeting and the staff were really attentive and helpful.

All in all a very enjoyable evening and I would certainly recommend Le Garrick to friends.

It was a busy Saturday evening pre theatre booking and the restaurant was bustling, which made for a great atmosphere. Warmly greeted when we arrived and quickly seated. Went for the pre theatre menu, which was very good value and all three courses were nicely presented and tasted great. We have dined here on several occasions Previously and the food never disappoints. Service was friendly and efficient, but we were never rushed. Only one minor criticism - the beer we ordered was barely chilled and had we known we would have stuck with water - but this didn’t spoil the experience and we will definitely be returning.

An excellent restaurant, now firmly in my list of favourites in London. The Duck was succulent. What makes this place special is the authentic 'French' feel about the place - really personal service with staff who engage at just the right level.

Shame about the service as the food was actually good. Unfortunately we were still waiting for our main course 25 mins before the show was due to start.
