J Sheekey Atlantic Bar
A great place to grab a bite and drink pre-theatre
Excellent seafood. Attentive staff. Both hake and the lobster salad were well prepared.oyster presentation nicely done. You can understand why it is so busy
A very ordinary night at J Sheekey Atlantic Bar, despite my early pre planning for theatre, service was horribly slow, our orders were not delivered to the kitchen in the order they were made, with me ultimately ending up having to drink my espresso as I rushed to the door to make it to the performance (theatre was 3 min away).
We had a seafood platter and really enjoyed the variety and quality of seafood. The service was generally good but they did let my wine glass go empty a couple of times. It was very quiet on the Sunday night we went.
Great selection of seafood and attentive staff, the restaurant was very busy when we visited. The table wasn't properly cleaned when we were seated
Fantastic afternoon with squeaky fresh Dublin Bay Prawns, Sancerre and excellent service. What's not to love?
Delicious lobster soufflé and excellent Sauvignon blanc. Perfect lunch after visit to gallery.
Great service.Amazing seafood. Worth the visit.
Simply a joy. Never disappoints. Great food, delightful friendly service and fabulous location. A real favourite of ours and we’ll definitely be back. Thank you!
Amazing food, service, ambiance. Did I mention the food? Wow
The Atlantic Bar was superb. Great service and ambiance. Had Oysters, Salmon and Salad, all wonderful. Non alcoholic cocktails also lovely. Couldn’t fault really.
I would match the soundtrack to the ambiance - easy listening Jazz or down-beat rather than bop bop!
HAd better experiences there in the past
Staff is nice , some lacking a bit of class for such a place
coffee waited for 20 minutes
The food was awesome but the service even better! We had a great time and enjoyed every moment of the dinner thanks to a very professional chef and very prompt waiting staff. 10/10
Come again for sure.
Excellent as always. Certainly the best and freshest seafood in London
Perfect spot for pre theatre light supper n drinks. On this occasion we were sat near the open kitchen although they were not full. It was a bit distracted and not as nice as sitting in the booths or at the bar and we were more tucked away so service was not as attentive.
Been twice recently, limited menu but everything presented with care and delicious. Service exceelent.
It was a great discovery, service was top notch, the atmosphere was both lively and intimate and the wines were delicious (please add some merlot). I would be more than happy to come back
Fantastic food and service. Amazing tastes, sauces and fresh seafood.. Very attentive staff without being overly attentive. Great lunch
Great place of quality and service in Central London Covent Garden/ Theatrelznd where so often your custom is taken for granted...this was SO SO different...staffcatvall levelbwere teriffic, attentive and professional..Food was divine...what more can you ask for ...we will be back
Amazing seafood dishes and a great setting at the bar - as always
It’s slways a treat coming here and makes a fantastic pre theatre stop
Great meal sitting at the Atlantic Bar
Very prompt efficient service. Delicious food. Has Seedlip which for us non drinkers was excellent. Defo would go bank, was pre theatre and great for that purpose.
We decided to try the Atlantic Bar with the fixed menu in mind - however we were told on arrival that as of the previous day they had done away with the fixed menu. It all seemed rather dubious and a means perhaps of trying to get us to spend more. Rather amateurish service and not the friendliest. I wouldn't go again - certainly not good value for money.
The Atlantic Bar is a step down from the remarkable J Sheekey main restaurant but the food is worth a visit. We were seated at a wooden table with no table cloth and the restaurant was unfortunately very noisy when we visited. Service was efficient and the food was excellent and original.
Great interior and service with delicious food. Will for sure come back.
Food and service very good. We love going here. It is the best seafood restaurant in London.
Excellent service and ambiance. Food was delicious!
Great pit stop although I find the menu pricey for what you get.
Top notch service. Unobtrusive and just very, very good. Prices are a little on the high side for the portion size, but it’s central London, it’s Sheekey so we let it slide because the food is excellent.
Excellent pre theatre venue for nice fresh seafood and pleasant ambience
The Atlantic Bar is such a special place. Wonderful food of course but also excellent service from lovely staff. Highly recommended and one of my favourite places to eat.
J Sheekey is one of London’s absolute restaurant gems. I treated my aunt to lunch after a visit to the National Portrait Gallery and we thoroughly enjoyed a fabulous meal at the Atlantic Bar. The new lunch menu delivered tremendous value at £30 a head for 4 small sharing plates and a glass of wine. The tuna tostadas and twice baked soufflés were particular highlights. We were very well looked after by the delightful Joyce. I don’t think fish lovers can do better in central London.
I love the food!!! Fantastic service and nice ambience
Everything was good
fabulous seafood, fish and cocktails - the tuna tacos are amazing
Loved our first tripe to Sheekey's. The Taps style of eating, having a drink and a good chat was ideal. Service was very attentive, without being intrusive.
Only dish we did not like much was the shrimp burger - very underwhelming and soggy.
The rest was fantastic - oysters so fresh and flavoursome......octopus, tender and tasty.....tempura, on point....and cheese soufle.....well, so nice we had to have another! Deserts - the Fish Bowl deserves a special mention. We shall be back!
We had a great meal sat outside in the sun. Service was fantastic and food was brilliant. Would come back every week no probs.
One of my favourites. Great food, great value and the staff are fantastic.
