Covent Garden Restaurants
Appreciate that I made the reservations months in advance to meet a London friend at the restaurant and then go to theater. From the time I booked the restaurant booked a Holiday Party for a buy out and the restaurant was closed to the public when I arrived to meet my friend. They welcomed us in and put us in a Private room so we could visit and have our Champagne and food and when we left the main party was going on. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Lively restaurant with food more interesting than the menu suggests. Lots of unusual touches and the flavours were delicious. The service is efficient but one doesn't feel rushed. The location is useful for any of the nearby theatres in the Strand or Aldwych areas. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Absolutely blown away by the taste and flavour of the food. The garlic, chilli and cheddar naan bread is to die for. Everything was incredibly tasty (Nutella Naan anyone? Yes!) and the atmosphere was lively. Did I mention the Masala Fries? Will definitely return! MoreOpenTable Diner -
I've been wanting to go to Christopher's for a long time for the famous chocolate brioche toast, which did not disappoint. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed and staff were friendly and accommodating with our 4 year old lad as well which was great to see. overall had a fun and relaxed brunch, although prices were slightly higher than expected, but a nice treat nonetheless MoreOpenTable Diner -
Lady of the Grape is a very small, cozy French restaurant with tables close together and informal service. The wine is not consistently good, so choose carefully. The food was generally good, rich French food but came out in no particular order. We ate tapas style which worked well enough, but we all felt hungry after the theatre. MoreOpenTable Diner -
We were not made aware until we arrived at the restaurant that the table would be available for 1.75 hours past our booking time so were glad we arrived early. Our cocktails took half an hour to arrive so we’re still drinking them when the first course arrived. They had run out of coke and Diet Coke which our designated driver had wanted. We had just ordered coffee when we were told our time was up and felt pressured into leaving despite several free tables and nobody waiting at the reception desk. This was a disappointing ending to what was an otherwise good meal. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Grind was a great find with its rustic, urban exposed interior feel. Great music, though a tad loud at times, provided a relaxed atmosphere. Naturally, the food was what it was all about and the crushed avocado with feta, poached eggs and bacon really hit the stop. Washed down with a couple of double shot flat whites, what else would you want to kick-start your day. Great place, great food and really lovely people. Get over there and enjoy!!!!

Food was good, the clay pot dishes came on normal plates and not the clay pots like I have had in other branches. Service was awful, waitress even pulled faces when we wanted to add more to our order. Food is fairly steep for the portions you get. I do like Ping Pong though and the food tastes good.

We attended this venue on a really busy Saturday evening on the build up to Christmas. The place was buzzy and packed out but the service we received was still incredible. All staff we encountered were attentive, polite and couldn’t do enough to help us. The atmosphere and live entertainment is amazing. We will continue to go back and will definitely recommend!

Have eaten here (or should I say in the old setting) several times pre theatre. All the staff are very friendly, extremely efficient and professional. The food arrived very quickly, was hot and tasty. I would thoroughly recommend Maxwells for a reasonably priced meal in a great part of London. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Enjoyed it. Food was very good. First waitress made some good recommendations on food and wine. When we didn’t want dessert the other waitress quickly whipped out the bill and planted it on the table. Fair enough but unusual and slightly rude, given we still had half a bottle of the overpriced (delicious) wine still on the table and were enjoying a good conversation. MoreOpenTable Diner -
All four if us had the carvery which is rare to find in London. Limited choice of starters (soup or salad) though both were decent. The main courses were excellent, generous portions of meat and good selection if veg. We could barely finish our desserts as were so full but they too were excellent. Overall venue was very clean and looked nice. Older crowd. Service was very good. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Food was reasonably good. Cocktails were very well made. Only minus was the service - the waiters were very pushy and rushed us in our orders. The restaurant wasn’t particularly busy - there were a few empty tables but they rushed us and seemed keen for us to vacate the table ASAP. MoreOpenTable Diner -
I was meeting an employee who is on maternity leave. She brought her 8 month old son and we all had a blast. The staff were great with Hamish, courteous and efficient with our food orders. Sitting in the centre of the Piazza was a great experience and we will doubtless meet there again. MoreOpenTable Diner -
The starters, burrata with heritage and the wye asparagus couldn't come any fresher, the spring lamb was nicely done to my liking - pink-ish medium. I found the steak onglet to be more intense and stronger this time around and on checking with Chef Adam, he explained that it was because last time when I had the dish, it was a veal steak rather than a beef steak. I preferred it with a slightly milder flavour in that case! MoreOpenTable Diner -
The idea of Flying Pie came about when 3 friends couldn’t agree on where pies originated from.
Turns out that the true origin of pie passed from Egypt to classical Greece and then to Rome and the rest of Europe.
Everyone then created their own take of the pie as it migrated across the lands. Seeing that London didn’t have a pie shop that made pies the original way, we decided to land in London!More
Food was good, very tasty but the portions are too big I would recommend anyone going to share one as they are little bit too sickly to have a full one to yourself. If you love sweet things this is ideal if you don’t then get the savoury ones as these defo have sugar overload. MoreOpenTable Diner -
I read the reviews thoroughly before going here and although they were not great the main whinge's were around service. Worth a try I thought and was right. The food is good both in quality and portion sizes. The service is fine but could be improved. The main issue is that they are trying to be a bar and a restaurant and a club. Although the club is separate the bar and restaurant are integrated. Our waitress went off to investigate a few things about the booking and specials. Unfortunately she seemed to be serving behind the bar a few minutes later while we waited for her to return so we could order. Clearly they need to find a way to separate the functions so the staff are not having to deal with competing demands. If they manage that then this would be a great place rather than just good.

Located at the famed Opera Terrace atop the historic Grade II-listed Market Building, this striking space is a vibrant new addition to the area. Crowned by an Eric Parry-designed glass roof, the restaurant runs along the entire east side of the market making for beautiful rooftop views across the piazza.
Bold in design, SUSHISAMBA Covent Garden offers a host of inviting dining and drinking experiences: from the bar with its ‘living ceiling’; the exposed kitchen and high energy sushi bar to the terrace overlooking the square below and the private dining room with its own entrance and terrace.More
I had booked the afternoon tea as a Christmas present for my brother and sister-in-law and was very pleased with the selection and quality of this. I would definitely recommend the afternoon tea as an excellent alternative to the usual "tea" MoreOpenTable Diner -
