Modern European

In the heart of Theatreland, 28-50 Covent Garden is the face of the St Martin's Courtyard dining quarter. Hand-picked wine lists curated by passionate in-house sommeliers, this big-sister of the famous Marylebone brasserie features a plethora of accessible and high-end wines by the glass - some exclusive in the UK (such as the Chateau de Candie from the restaurant's own vineyard in the Alps). Menu is from Julien Baris, doing what he does best – simple, seasonal modern European cuisine, cooked from scratch on the premises, and of course, steaks, big and juicy, and lots of seafood. Design by Richard Green fuses 28-50's acclaimed no-nonsense wine-workshop style with more than a nod to all-things bling, featuring bubblegum pink and sky-blue velvet armchairs at every table. 3 dining rooms, a connoisseurs wine-bar, an extravagant champagne bar and a killer soundtrack make 28-50 Covent Garden is a must for pre/post theatre or a night of relaxed fun with good food and wine.

It was my birthday lunch with friends and from the moment I arrived I felt we were completely spoilt. All the staff were amazing and particularly Tom who's birthday fell on the same day! Definitely go back again. Thank you.

Lana from Madrid was our waitress!
And what a fab gal she was!
She was very attentive and even loaned her portable charger to our friend. She helped with us choosing dessert and even got a mocktail named after me!
The food is bit pricey but it's delicious . The desserts are amazing too!

The four of us had a really enjoyable afternoon on Saturday. The surroundings are elegant & relaxing, the staff friendly & attentive, the food excellent. I have already heartily recommended to a number of friends & work colleagues.

We will most definitely be back.

A very pleasant lunch venue. Food was excellent and service was attentive. Seating outside was nice and not too close to the road/footpath.

I would have liked to have had a wider choice on the menu, however this may be due to the fact that we are living in post-pandemic times.

I would return to this venue

28-50 has justly become a popular venue for diners and drinkers alike. For me, it was the first time at their Covent Garden restaurant. It was busy, mostly a magnet for young-ish people on a Saturday night, some at least of whom seemed to have had too much to drink already (we were dining at 7:30 or thereabouts). The music was pumped up so much I could hardly hear what was being said by my companion - for me always a minus. As against which, the food and service were impeccable. Indeed you would have to go far to find such quality. So it was a strange evening and hard to assess or describe now - while the food, wine and service could easily have graced somewhere upmarket in the West End, the ambience overall was noisy, boisterous and overwhelming. So hard to assess really. For a quiet evening meal, No. It just seems strange that they put so much effort into providing top quality food and service in such a boisterous atmosphere.

Lovely good and nice decor. Staff were friendly enough. There was no air con and we were inside by the window on a very hot day. Thankfully after our meal they did give us a table outside where we had some cocktails to end our lunch.

Sorry to say not the best experience. Had a chat with the manager and his explanation for the service issues were totally understandable.
Nice place and hope they manage to get on top of the staffing problems but for us it was just not what we would have expected.

Very very patient members of staff as myself and my friend both ran more than 20 mins late yet the staff never chased us or pressurised us in any way. Our waiter Ruben was ever so kind and very attentive!

The pretty pink and blue chairs was the best part of this restaurant! A staff member unlocked the disabled toilet door from the outside whilst I was inside using it to let another customer in. I can’t understand why this happened!? Very embarrassing for me! Unlikely to return.
