We had dinner on Saturday night and we were not disappointed. We had a sharing platter to start which was more than enough for 2. We struggled to finish it. Mains were Dover sole and Lobster thermador. Both delicious. Generous portion sizes for every course. A great buzz about the restaurant, although Iwould have been slightly disappointed if I been sat in the basement. It's a bit subdued down there. Service excellent. I would highly recommend.

Food and service excellent. Grade for food value for money would be 4 or 5, but overall reduced to 3 by overpriced wine.

This was the first time we had eaten at the Covent Garden restaurant. We have eaten at the Marylebone restaurant three or four times.

The Covent Garden restaurant is far larger and a very different ambience. However we enjoyed it just as much as we do when we go to the Marylebone restaurant.

Will definitely be going again. Really love the food, and the service is always good.

Surprisingly tasty fresh fish - especially delicious halibut - and generous portions. Quick service without asking for it (we were eating pre-theatre). We'll be back - for lobster and a window seat!

Excellent, rapid service , as previously. We both went for fish platters, with a side of chips to share. Very tasty..but we probably should have ordered a vegetable too, as not as big as we imagined. Had room for a pud tho !! I had brownie with delicious pistachio ice cream and hubby had the lemon tart.
Tasty food !

Great food, terrible toilets.
We went for a weekday lunch. We were given the a la carte, but had to ask for the set lunch £18 menu, considerably cheaper for the same food. I'd be interested to know if this is common practice. Food was lovely, scallops followed by tuna, perfectly cooked and tasty. Service was friendly and efficient and our waitress was attentive.
The only real downside are the toilets which are very poor, bad smell, sticky floor, old sinks - generally unpleasant.
So to sum up great food, terrible toilets.

Thoroughly enjoyed this our second meal, at Fish Works Covent garden. This time we chose a la. carte. We both had the Argentinian prawns starter. My husband enjoyed the roasted sea bass and I loved my posh fish n chips ( halibut !) Excellent food and service. Will be going again. ( Tomorrow!) And might opt for the pre theatre 2 course all which us excellent value at £18.
Highly recommended if you.love fish.

Lovely waiters and good service, let down by the food. Our scallops were delicious and well cooked. The mackerel was also good. The sea bass, however, was seriously overcooked; the broccoli and beans seemed to have been reheated, poorly and the bread hacked rather than cut. The chips and spinach were ok. Coffee was cold, even after extra-hot milk requested. The room too was cold. Over all a disappointing experience.

Food was not very good at all. I ordered the fish soup for starters that should of had a Gruyère crouton , instead it was a large piece of soggy cheddar cheese on toast! The fish platter for two was below average the best part was the bottle of rose wine, can’t really go wrong. Won’t be visiting again……

Good honest fish at a sensible price. My whitebait and bouillabaisse were both excellent. The latter particularly good not pre prepared but clearly the plentiful langoustines and fish cooked correctly and not over cooked. Staff helpful - would just rethink the musak played…if any required at all! Well done Fishworks!

We were served quickly and efficiently, and the were delighted with the food from the excellent value set lunch menu. Space and ambience very good. Only one downside - we had to ask to see the set menu, it wasn't handed to us with the a la carte.

Food was excellent but overall experience let down by small niggles. Side order was forgotten, white wine served barely below room temperature and plates not warmed so fish stew cooled quickly when transferred from a hot pan. Toilets were no better than a typical London pub (i.e. needed a good deep clean).

The food was outstanding. All three courses were exceptional, well presented and tasted very fresh. The only small criticisms were on service in terms of long wait times considering how quiet it was. There was also a lack of awareness over keeping table water filled up, a very small niggle! On the whole it was amazing and we would definitely return
