Pre/post Theatre
Leave the bustle of London’s ‘theatreland’ behind you for the buzz and charm of the Middle East! Maison du Mezzé is the Capital’s best Middle-East dining experience, offering authentic Lebanese-inspired brunch, lunch and dinner dishes with the warmest hospitality. All dishes are freshly prepared daily in the restaurant kitchen using the finest seasonal produce and, of course, spices and herbs from our Middle East heartland. The interior is set over two floors and all part of the Middle-East experience with Arabian carpets and artwork, gilded ceiling and a mix of banquette and booth-style seating separated by ferns and trailing plants. The large covered outdoor terrace beckons in finer weather where you can also enjoy a Shisha in true Middle-East style.

Always great food here and the customer service is excellent. The food costs a little more but it is worth it. Great location too.

We had a terrible experience here. Having booked a table for my wife’s birthday meal, we were met by an uninterested women at reception asking us If we would like to be seated outside in the freezing cold, we politely told her we had reserved indoor seating, we were then taken to a table in a corridor and asked to sit side by side. She then left us for what seemed like 10-15 mins and came back with another table sat right next to a couple again side by side. She was rude and by this time we had enough and walked out. Please avoid at all costs, clearly the restaurant does not understand the concept of making a reservation. Poor service and rude staff. We will not be returning again.

We went to Maison du Mezze for a pre-theatre meal. The service was prompt and courteous, and the food was v tasty and authentic. Moreover, when we said that we weren't eating bread, without being asked, our waiter arranged for us to be given a plate of vegetable "crudites" to eat our dips with - so a real plus for service there!

Had the pre theatre menu, which was great value for money; three courses and a glass of prosecco for 19.95. My only criticism would be that we had to ask for that particular menu because we'd seen it online otherwise we wouldn't have had that option. Our service apart from that was very good, timely but not rushed. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

The staff were excellent, great location and seating just perfect.

Food was outstanding and I mean outstanding.

And although the service was brilliant the £26 service charge I thought a little excessive.....

Amazing Lebanese food! They make almost everything in house. We had a group of 8 people, with 4 kids and we all had a good time.

As I already sent a complain to the restaurant, I was really disappointed with their service and especially the girl who served us. I will never go back there. I can find better food somewhere else, where I can be treated like any other customer, no matter how much is the bill.

The restaurant was very loud with music. Couldn’t even have a decent conversation. The food portions were tiny and over priced. Drinks are stupidly expensive. Was offered water at the start of the meal by the server and was charged £5 for this. Absolute joke. Will not be returning.

Manager was rude. Booked a table for 8 to have the £14.95 3 course lunch menu. She told us if we didn’t write that on booking it wasn’t valid. And then contradicted herself saying it’s not available on weekends. From that disagreement service was slow and stuff added to bill. Will not return, shame as food is lovely and most of the staff nice.

Please be aware that smoking is allowed on all outside tables, this is both cigarettes and the traditional pipes. This isn't clear on the website and meant when I arrived despite asking for an outside table I needed to go inside. I also was within the time limit for the pre theatre supper menu, yet this was not offered. Only the ala Carte menu, I spent £100 on dinner and would say the food was not as good as comptoir libinese where dinner was 70. The staff however were efficient, friendly and attentive

Loved the atmosphere and decor of this restaurant and much of our food was good but unfortunately my daughter’s steak was overdone and chewy. It was tasty though and we were in a bit of a rush so didn’t try sending it back - when I did mention it to the waiter he didn’t seem particularly interested. Wouldn’t stop me from going back though as overall we enjoyed the experience. Not cheap but for the location it wasn’t crazy money.

I think the attraction of this place is sitting outside. Inside it is a bit uninspiring. The food was OK. Mix grill a bit greasy. The place is fine but because it is in a prime location it's not value for money for London residents.

It was practical for the theatre and the food was nice. Service was quick but unceremonious. The door was wide open and it was cold inside which prevented us from staying for dessert.

We needed a last minute place for a pre-theatre dinner and hubby wanted Lebanese. The service was excellent, the food and drinks delicious but it was expensive - £9 for hummus as I recall. The menu is extensive and had some vegan options (not many) but we did enjoy the visit and would go again as it is so convenient.

Buzzy and lively downstairs, but an oasis of calm upstairs this is a great destination for a treasure trove of mezze. Juicy chunks of delicious meat or delicately flavoured veggie options, it was all sublime and beautifully presented. Service is quick, the staff smiley and helpful. To p spit.

Had a fabulous meal. We asked for advice as we were not familiar with the menu. We were suggested a variety of starters and mains and went with the suggestions. Couldn’t fault any aspect of it except that it would have been nice to be given ice with the water. Such a minor detail. The service was attentive and friendly without being invasive, the food tasted wonderful, there was a great selection of vegetarian options and the mint tea and Umm Ali dessert rounded the meal off perfectly. We will definitely be back next time we are in London.

Went with my husband and his family for my mother-in-law’s 60th birthday. We had a fabulous time - staff made us feel incredibly welcome and were more than happy to move us to a table away from the door where it was warmer and a bit quieter. Food was delicious and they even sang happy birthday and brought out her pudding with a candle in it! Great experience all round!

Had a nice mezze lunch before the theatre on Saturday - the restaurant was an oasis of calm compared to the busy Square outside. Service was great - waiter even turned the music down without us even asking! Mixed hot mezzo were nice but not really that warm. Could've been more heated. The aubergine dip and baby aubergines were lovely. Portions are good but prices have gone up considerably since we were here last. Good reliable place but a tad pricey.
