Pre/post Theatre
J Sheekey Atlantic Bar is a hidden jewel, nestling between the bright lights of Leicester Square and the chic Covent Garden, on the doorstep of jostling Chinatown and action-fuelled Soho. Open daily from midday until late, food is seasonal, delicious and affordable. Appealing to seafood enthusiasts, but neglecting no-one, the menu offers small sharing plates of fish, shellfish, salads and game, not to mention with the very theatrical Plateau de Fruits de Mer. The team is passionate and knowledgeable, serving from an open kitchen as and when the dishes are cooked. Please note that seats are subject to a time restriction. Seats that are booked from 5.15pm to 5.45pm are available through to 7.15pm.

I can't speak highly enough of the restaurant. I booked J Sheekey for my wife's 35th birthday. Every bit of the experience made it the best birthday dinner I've organised for my wife. From the initial phone call after making my booking and checking about the notes I added when booking on Opentable I got the sense that the service was very high quality. When we arrived, the maitre d' was incredibly helpful and accomodating. The decor had an amazing decadent but relaxed charm. And the food for superb. Delicious tapas style dishes which we couldn't get enough of. Some amazing non alcoholic cocktails. And although we were full to the brim, they suggested a secret off menu dessert of ice berries with white chocolate which was the perfect light dessert to round off an incredible meal

Just awful. Clams were gritty mums spaghetti. Also service was worse than I’ve had in Lincolnshire pub.

Came to celebrate the New Years with my wife and had a great time. The food was very good, some of the best french fries I’ve had, and their classic seafood platter was excellent.

Normally love this place so was confident NYE would be a success. Unfortunately waiter didn't listen so nothing arrived as planned. The flagship seafood platter came without Langoustine and minced tuna/salmon in place of sashimi .. not sure anything replaced missing langoustine ... certainly not the price! Rather a disappointing meal ...

Very good position for After Show Meal and access to other attractions. Lovely decor and atmosphere. Food very tasty but small portions and therefore very overpriced. Drinks also expensive. Service good and staff very friendly.

As the first of our party of 3 to arrive I as given excellent service, lead to table and offered a drink however when my guests arrived they were directed to a different table which I couldn’t see and were told that was the table I chose when booking (right by the door and no I didn’t specify), after a while this was rectified when the Maitre d saw I was still alone. Food and service was excellent and staff very friendly. Would return and recommend.

Had always shunned the bar in favour of, occasionally, the restaurant which is so expensive but so good and really quite sheek. But bar was excellent. Brilliant food, fast service, good looking people, it fizzled.

Bar and table dining, less formal than the original Sheekey next door. Started at a very cramped table for three in a window snug, but the maître d' arranged a move. Enjoyed Central European white wines with large, succulent, and fresh oysters, plus a tempura oyster each to start. Mains were well executed and fairly priced, the pan fried skate wing in brown butter being a particular highlight. English cheeses to finish and some Armagnac to digest. Complimentary chocolate truffles with our unremarkable espressos. Am excellent meal which sustained conversation over three hours. Will return to try the sole meunière, which I am sure they will nail.

Excellent service and the seafood platter was good value. Octopus and scallops both very tasty. Would definitely return. We needed a table over a bar seat to accommodate all the food!

Booked at the last minute, so we hadn’t had any pre conceptions heading to the restaurant. From meeting the very smart doorman, to finishing the meal the service was exceptional. The food itself was excellent (Cornish fish soup) and very reasonably priced. I will definitely be returning and recommend the whole experience. ❤️⚓️🧔🏻
