First visit to the restaurant with a group of friends. As soon as we walked in the door we knew we were going to be happy about the restaurant. Good food, great service and a lovely ambience.

Very nice overall but with the set menu we felt the soup should have come with bread and the trout with vegetables. Dessert was nice but small. So it felt a bit on the skimpy side and when I got home I was peckish and had to eat supper! So please add the extras and address the portion sizes and then this would be a very pleasant dining experience that I could wholeheartedly recommend.

I don't often get to the Brasserie but whenever I do I am not disappointed. The service is always attentive without being "in your face". If you mention any specific dietary requirements they are noted on your booking so you never need to ask for different menus. More importantly you are treated as an individual rather than a number - a lot more restaurants could learn from this. The food as always was fantastic - thank you :)

Despite booking a month ahead we were shoved on two cramped tables in the window. Service was offhand and food was tasty but overpriced. Would not consider again. Asked if chef could do an omelette for vegetarian child but waitress said he was too busy!

We come here fairly regularly and usually really enjoy the experience. The staff is generally very friendly and efficient without being overbearing. Last night was a different story. As we arrived, the waitress / hostess ignored us for a good five minutes, no eye contact, no acknowledgment that there were actually human beings waiting. Once we were seated, service seemed to be given begrudgingly and aloof. The goat's cheese salad (chef's special) appeared to have just been thrown on a plate. The steak was adequate but not up to their usual standard. We were made to feel more like an inconvenient nuisance rather than paying customers and the clearly insincere ' thank you and goodbye' at the end of the evening added even more insult to injury. It's a real shame how one member of staff can ruin a restaurant's good name. I have championed this restaurant to many friends and family over the years, based on last night, I won't be doing that again in any great hurry.

Had a lovely meal before going to the theater. Only thing i would say is they were keeping everyone to one part of the restaurant so it felt quite cramped/tight for space. It was a shame they did not spread people out over the whole restaurant. Have been here before and would return.

Located in busy Covent garden. Staff friendly. Cosy atmosphere but very poor lighting which also meant the noise level was magnified. Food typical of tourist centred restaurant. If you have a discount voucher it is worth reconfirming conditions at the start of the evening!!!

Normally would rate higher. We come here made three or four times a year, because it has been so good to us.

First time we’ve been sat downstairs and as a result the service wasn’t quite as attentive as it usually is. Food still good, but the two children’s portions were smaller than would reasonably be expected and definitely smaller than we’ve had in the past, while Children’s desserts were off the adults’ menus and too large and not priced as a children’s menu might be expected to be.

The staff were great the ambiance very pleasant but the food Boeuf Bourguignon was bland some meat tough not hot enough and not enough sauce. This is a French restaurant surely I should be able to say that tasted great I'll have that again sometime.
Very disappointing.
I do not do these kind of reviews but felt I had to this time. It wasn't awful it was just boring.

We decided not to go for the set menu because there were so many good things we wanted to try on the a la carte. I had the winter casserole...duck find it and lentils which was excellent. Plenty of it too.
Service was attentive and helpful

We were a party of six and we were welcomed to the restaurant and seated after a few minutes wait, we received excellent service throughout and the meal lived up to our expectations. All people in our group commented on how the meal went and gave positive reviews. Well done!

I been there with my girlfriend. The receptionist was so nice and welcome us very well. — The waiter was so rude and talking so aggressive with us. We decided to leave asap before I get black out! He made me crazy in a 2 seconds.

Very Disappointed.

I enjoyed the dinner and the staff was friendly and polite. BUT in spite of that fact that I had written in my booking that we needed gluten free food and I am allergic to some nuts, the staff were unaware of this fact. When I ordered, the waiter had to ask the kitchen if the bouillabaisse contained gluten. There were no gluten free croutons or bread so I went without. We ordered the cheeseboard and there was no mention of biscuits on the menu, but it arrived with a large pile of wheat biscuits which I had to ask to have removed. There was no offer of a substitute but when I asked a for a few extra celery sticks they were brought.
I had also booked a 50% off food deal, but the waiter seemed unaware of that and after our bill came we had to order an extra desert and have the bill re-issued with the discount. The waiter was very pleasant about all this but it seems to me that staff training and liaison is lacking. It would have been nice to be told that we would not get a discount if we shared the cheeseboard and to be offered even bog standar gluten free toast or biscuits. My granddaughter who works in catering tells me that being served biscuits that contain gluten when you have clearly stated that you are allergic is illegal. Fortunately did not suffer any bad effects but I could not give a better review.

We had a table downstairs which was cosy, atmospheric with candles and quite romantic, even though pre-theatre time at 5.30pm. Lovely !
We booked special offer of 2 courses with Kir Royal for £20. Excellent value. Delicious food. Goats cheese starter and minute steak for me and pate and Trout with almonds for my partner.
Service prompt but not rushed (1hr) so in time for theatre.
We enjoyed it very much. Will go again next time we are in Covent Garden area.

is a nice place , the restaurant deco really nice, the food was really nice, the welcoming was great, even the Lady could not find our booking, made via open table, she explained to us that the till they are using is linked with open table, I am glad I was keeping the confirmation number, anyway she found a table for us, is was quite at that time, about 14:30 just an hour before our original booking, we have nice starters, brie chees in filo pastry and asparagus risotto, followed by beef stroganoff and chicken Milanese, we shared small macaroni and coffee with a couple of digestive, the real bill was £132.70 but there was £16.59 as service charge 12.50%, though too much. anyway good experience.
