Lovely meal that would have benefited from a little attention to detail from the waiting staff. Forgotten sides that turned up after the main course being the main issue. Silly things that could have been so easily avoided. Aside of that tasty food and drink l.

Good location for a pre-theatre-lunch. Typical pub food with good quality. Service could be improved. A bit noisy ambiance for the generation over 40.

Great atmosphere. Pre Theatre menu good value. Service OK but could be a bit quicker with drinks and orders, especially as the table is only available for 1.5 hours. Would recommend.

First time visit to Old Compton Brasserie. The food was really good and the OT deal of 3 courses with a glass of prosecco was extremely good value. Whilst the waiting staff were friendly, it seemed a little disorganised as we were asked for our order by more than one member of staff and asked how everything was, more than once. The starters (mushroom soup was delicious) arrived promptly but the mains took a long time to arrive. So much so we were running out of time to get to the theatre and had to hurry along the deserts and bill. The noise level was too high for our tastes but some people would like the buzz.

The food was wonderful and the staff attentive, however it was very loud and difficult to hold a conversation with others at our table. A great place for food but not peace and quiet.

OCB IS what I describe as 'a very useful restaurant' - super-central, affordable, friendly, stylish and reliably good. Yes there are cooler, more innovative and more exciting restaurants but few are as perfectly suited to any occasion and budget as this one!

I booked this restaurant for my mum and I, my mum was over visiting for her 50th birthday so I had mentioned that on the booking. We had a lovely meal and at the end of it we both got a nice surprise when the waiter brought over a birthday meringue with sparklers and sang happy birthday. Great end to an already lovely meal.

One to revisit. Good food, excellent service and great value. Pro-active in checking for allergies... doesn't affect us but great to see they approach it at the start of the order process.

Service was poor, slow to be asked if we wanted to order drinks, had to ask for the set menu twice, starters arrived before drinks... restaurant wasn’t busy and we struggled to get our servers attention. Would of been fine until a 12.5% service charge was added to our bill, and we didn’t feel we could ask for this to be removed without creating an issue. It’s a shame as food and atmosphere was great.

Great Saturday night with friends for drinks and dinner. Service was excellent despite them being very busy. Noise levels were quite high but you can't really get a great atmosphere without some noise.

We took advantage of a terrific London Restaurant Festival offer, £20 for 3 courses plus glass of fizz. Our expectations were moderate but were blown away by this place! Great atmosphere, stylish bar and dining areas. The food choices were great from the offer me u and portions generous . We had a great time and will certainly go back.

Food was Ok. Really loud music, which might be a good or bad thing depending on what you’re out for.
Service was good despite them being really busy.
Overall I wouldn’t go back as the food was just ok and there’s so much better around the area.

Unfortunately, we had booked this restaurant for Birthday Celebration for my son who had to travel up from Brighton.
As soon as we were seated we were told that there were technical problems in the kitchen and food would take longer than usual. When ordering our drinks, the waiter informed us that there would be no cooked food as they could not rectify the problem... power kept cutting out in restaurant whilst trying to correct problem. The only food they could provide were salads. Decided not to stay. We were not charged for our drinks. So sadly, cannot rate restaurant as we did not get to eat. I did feel sorry for staff as this was obviously beyond their control.

The food was really good however the overall experience wasn’t great. The staff didn’t seem to pay much attention, brought out wrong orders, had issues with the bill and didn’t seem to know what they were doing. The set menu chicken is very, very small (which is fine thinking about the price paid for £15 for two courses) but tasty. Atmosphere was great but overall service and small portions lets this place down.

Pretty nice food, slightly overpriced with generally good portion sizes. Very friendly waiting staff although they're not very efficient and tend to help out larger groups/parties over the smaller tables. Really very noisy because of loud diners doing bottomless brunch, so don't expect to have a proper conversation with your date. Overall, an nice experience, I would return for the bottomless brunch or party, or for a few drinks at the bar.
