The food was great and reasonably priced with the pre-theatre offer. The vegetarian starter was lovely, but the main of Israeli cous cous with veg really lacked any refinement, considering my meat eating guests were tested to full salmon fillets with home made sauces and potato accompaniments.

Excellent, traditional French food. Very reasonably priced given the location. Service was quick and friendly and the atmosphere was just the right mix of busy but not too loud, relaxed but still felt like an occasion.

Good service, good food and great atmosphere. Shame there was no decanter for the Amaraone (you would expect this) and the sauce for the mussels was bland unfortunately. The starters were superb and my wife’s sea bass was lovely.

We had a pre-theatre dinner at Palm Court after seeing all of the good reviews. The service was wonderful and there was particular attention to food allergy requirements which was volunteered when we ordered. The ambience is fairly romantic and gives the feeling of being in a high class restaurant with good value prices. The Beef Stroganoff was the best I have had and the steaks were also very good. There is a great Vegan choice and I would imagine they would probably cater for anything you needed in relation to diet. We will definitely return next time we need to eat in Covent Garden.

Had a lovely time, food was delicious. I have been before and had a great time then.

We were a party of 3 and we we would all definitely come back again.

The creme brûlée could have been warmer as it was cold but that’s my only criticism.

This place would be great for every occasion. Great for dates too

Service was lovely from start to finish

Many thanks

I have been going to Palm Court for many years and it has always been reliably special. Went there this week for a new year lunch with special friends. I had the fillet steak with a champagne cocktail and it was lovely. There is plenty of choice on the menu and the food is fresh and served in an efficient but unrushed manner. Nice ambiance and the service is excellent. In my opinion, it can’t be beaten.

With the Opentable 50% deal this was great value. The classic French dishes we ate were all excellent, full of flavour. We arrived pre-theatre and, not surprisingly, it was quite noisy but quietened down later.

Pleasant lunch at Palm Court. Good menu options and the OT 50% off food bill offer was welcome. Wine a touch over-priced but I guess they have to make it up somewhere. Service attentive and not overpowering. They were in no hurry to see us go - it was a quiet day and I hope the same attitude would apply on busier days,
Would happily go back

From the warm welcome to the excellent waiter, the service was wonderful. Our waiter was just perfect, seeming to know when to serve the food, always asking if more time was needed between courses, to topping up our wine glasses at the right time and delivering fresh tap water without being prompted. We had selected the lunch set menu which was very good value for money with a good choice of dishes and we each thoroughly enjoyed the food.

I have eaten here many times and it never fails to impress. Quality of food is very good with a varied menu, plenty to please carnivores and veggies. Well located, close to the theatres for that pre theatre meal.

Our Waitress was very attentive. The issue we had is that we were at a table squeezed into the middle of the restaurant under the air conditioning unit. We were a party of 6 and we all felt like we had been squeezed into the restaurant as there were clearly too many tables for the size of restaurant. In addition the air conditioning unit was blowing cold air onto us, so we had to ask for the unit to be turned down. The overall experience was very unsatisfactory. It is not unreasonable for diners to feel relaxed so as to enjoy their meal. For the reasons stated above we did not enjoy the overall experience. When we booked the table we were asked if it was a special occasion. We advised the restaurant it was for a Birthday. No mention was made of this at the Restaurant. Why ask the question and then do nothing about the response.

Second visit to PCB with my wife, we enjoyed it even more than last time. Great atmosphere and very tasty food, one of the best fish dishes I’ve had. Highly recommended.

Friendly and efficient service. The food in the main was good but, disappointingly, the onion in the risotto was noticeably undercooked and chewy.

Went for a late evening meal post-cinema with my wife and daughter. Although not very busy, there were sufficient diners to create a pleasant atmosphere. Food was of a good standard and the service was good throughout. Would recommend the Palm Court Brasserie as an excellent choice of either a pre- or post-theatre venue.

Although the starters were good (salad and Brie pastry), the main were not great at all. My beef stroganoff was so burned that I could smell the burning smell before even trying it. It was just horrible!
The service was mediocre as they were probably understaffed and had barely the time to ask if our food was fine. It was done while running across to another table. The overall service could be improved with a smile or a small attention if time is against them. It takes 2 secondes to make your client feel special.

I would recommend but I was disappointed as I asked on my reservation for a table that is corner or slightly off the main door . On my arrival my table wasn't reserved and we had to seat in front of the door which wasn't ideal on a date night.
Moreover , I order the tuna steak which was highly recommended and unfortunately it came over cooked and was hard to eat .. which made the meal less satisfying . I did not changed it as I was afraid with the waiting time , but the waited was kind to offer.
Overall good restaurant but on my occasion it wasn't a total success, yet it remains a nice restaurant .

Where do i start, I booked this as a celebration for my anniversary with my partner the reviews were encouraging. We booked for Sunday evening. the restaurant was very busy and the initial table we were given was right next to the service entrance which was noisy and I was not happy with this. Despitethe fact I stressed via my reservation that was a special occasion there was no knowledge none of this and a disgruntled waiter finally moved us to another table. The second table was wonky and uncomfortable. The service was like last time our food was lukewarm cold. luckily we were using a 50% off opentable offer but I would never pay full price for the food. Not worth it at all. A disappointing experience. They did not even acknowledge our anniversary at all. Wish i picked another restaurant.

Too many tables cramped together and very noisy.
Charged service on full price despite 50% discount - realised later next day.
Food very average.
Service poor.
Many better overall value restaurants nearby. Steer clear.

We had a fantastic time at Palm Court
The whole place suited us very well
One of our party was a little late but this did not phase them
He was fitted in on his arrival and bought up to speed with the meal no trouble at all
The waiter attended to us admirably
I really like this restaurant it is a pleasure to eat in a place where the meal goes according to plan
So often in restaurants today the service and the food does not come up to scratch
This place is consistently great
