This is my absolute favorite restaurant in London. The food is always fantastic and no matter what I order I'm always delighted with my meal! The staff is also great and always efficient, happy, and polite. I can't praise Cris, Katarzyna, and Max enough—they always do a brilliant job. Can’t wait to return and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to eat/drink in Soho. Love this place and will continue to visit.

Great energy and music!

Food not great, unfortunately not at price point and very pricey for what you get. Fries were all broken down to smaller pieces and burnt. Fish We were seated under the stairs, had cigarette butts, a newspaper and mussel shells under our table. Our main courses came while we were finishing our starter.

Great atmosphere but unfortunately not at all near the £70 + price point.

Was a really buzzy place, stylish interior, packed but didn’t impact the service which was efficient and friendly. Food was great, good portion size, well presented and very tasty, prices on the reasonable side for soho and considering the portions. cocktails seemed popular, my friend had an old fashioned that came out in a smoke-filled dome, great theatre! I will visit again!

First time of visiting and we were so impressed that we booked to return again next month.

Comfortable, air conditioned dining area, great food and drinks menu and excellent value for money. Fantastic cocktails too.

What makes the restaurant particularly appealing is the friendliness, efficiency and professionalism of the staff - particularly with the way they dealt with a food sensitivity issue for my friend.

Looking forward to my next visit.

Restaurant had a lovely ambience. Food was lovely. I was only a little disappointed as I'd informed the restaurant before coming that we were celebrating a birthday and engagement and it wasn't even acknowledged. That was only the real disappointment as it made the evening a little less special.

We really enjoyed Old Compton Brasserie. I'd not hesitate to recommend it. I'd also like to give a big "thank you" to Samantha who took care of our order and was just a genuinely wonderful ambassador for the restaurant. All in all, a terrific experience. Well done and thank you.

We booked the Sunday roast with a glass of wine for £20 but were informed they “were out” so were were not happy. Instead were order appetizers. The ham in the charcuterie was very cheap but the stark tartar was fabulous.

Nice food & service! We did ask to be seated outside but there was no space, so I'd bear that in mind if you're only looking for outdoor dining.

Food was lovely, but some potatoes with the seabass would have been appreciated. They were very busy setting up outside when we arrived,but we weren't offered any drinks for a good ten minutes. Service around dietary needs could also have been improved as there weren't that many suitable options and the team declined to send the list in advance.

Food was great, service really good.. just two hours isn’t enough time for a party of 6. We had half a bottle of wine left and wanted to order desert but were told they could cork the wine so we could take it away after we’d been there for 1hr 50 mins as they needed our table for the next people so we couldn’t order any thing else and needed to leave.
I know restaurants are recovering post Covid, and everything else was great, we just think they need to re look at time sittings as we’d have happily ordered desert and more drinks so they’d have had more money from us. It’s a shame as it put a dampener on the end of evening, feeling like we had to rush out. If you’re looking to book, go, just don’t expect to be able to eat three courses!!

Drinks good. Food mediocre (normally really amazing!). Busy day for them but service suffered. Manager kept giving excuses and empty promises. Music too loud for being a 'Covid-secure' environment. Wifi doesn't work properly - probably too many people for the signal. Overall, Frustrating as a result. Maybe just a bad day as normally great service.

Nice central location to meet friends for brunch. Quiet when we arrived, got busier as it was a Saturday. Good menu selection. Chose the bubble and squeak, which was delicious. Had the old Compton iced tea, which was good. Would go again.

Lovely to be back at Old Compton Brasserie. We opted for the three courses and glass of fizz menu and were not disappointed. We all enjoyed our choices and a special mention to the sticky toffee pudding which was yummy! The service was great, all staff friendly and helpful plus a really nice vibe and ambience making it a good choice of restaurant/bar to catch up with friends.

Tasty food, attentive service and buzzy atmosphere. Our waiter even gave us extra glasses of prosecco on the house, which was incredibly kind! The only quibble I have is that I'd specifically booked the set menu but had to ask for this on being seated. The set menu is fantastic value - 3 courses for £25 plus a glass of prosecco each. I had the chicken liver parfait, salmon for main and creme brulee for dessert.
