A word from Le Deuxieme
Le Deuxième restaurant in London's Covent Garden offers light, imaginative modern European cooking in cool, elegant, contemporary surroundings. Sitting in the calm interior of Le Deuxième, you'll hardly believe that the noise and crowds of Covent Garden are just metres away from you. The understated colour scheme of beige and mushroom combine with subtle lighting to produce an intimate atmosphere that's just right for business meals and romantic dinners. These natural colours make the confident cooking the star of the show. As Le Deuxième is set in London's West End, you would be a brilliant planner to make supper at Le Deuxième part of an evening's entertainment at the theatre or opera. If you're seeking sustenance later in the evening, Le Deuxième is a perfect choice, too, as last orders are at midnight and there's plenty of time.

    The atmosphere of the restaurant is warm and inviting and high standards of decor and cleanliness are maintained. Coming slightly late or early for a reserved table is never (apparently) a problem and the staff are welcoming and efficient. The food is outstanding and the wine list is extensive. A great location

    First time trying this French themed resto. Excellent welcome with knowledge of our OpenTable special offer request. The pleasant Kir Royale which was part of the deal could have done with a soupçon more cassis. A good menu with plenty of choice for the special offer menu, rather than the two of each course more often seen. A little over the top with the salt (the bacon in the sautéed potatoes especially so) but very nicely cooked and presented. A reasonably priced wine list to go with the meal. Excellent service, friendly not overly so. One of my biggest gripes in restaurants is seeing a waiter serve to a table and then return to the kitchen passing other tables with empties to remove and ignoring them. Not here. Nice clean toilet handwash

    Our reunion lunch was a great success. The restaurant is spotless and the staff very friendly. No musak!! There was another larger group in when we arrived but the noise level was OK. If all tables ahd been occupied it might have been hard to hear. We had the three course lunch with coffee. There was a good choice of dishes, it was well-cooked and presented. Overall we thought it great value for money, and there was no problem with our staying for three hours.

    Dined on 7/9/2014
    I've been here many times, usually early evening using a special offer and have always been impressed. However, this must recent experience wasn't as good, we had a table at 8pm. Once seated we had to ask for the menu, then we had to ask again for wine menu, it seemed pretty ad hoc service and the restaurant wasn't even that busy. My friend and I decided we only wanted one course and a glass of wine each rather than the 3 courses with wine from the set menu or which I'd booked, when the bill came this was much more expensive than the offer. If I go again I'll make sure I go earlier in the evening and only dine on the offer / set menu!

    Excellent lunch. Wide menu choice, good portion size, perfectly cooked, not too 'clever' ie we didn't have to ask the meaning of ingredients and the combinations on each dish worked well. It was nice to be able to sit and talk without being deafened by surrounding noise. Would recommend it to anyone.

    We'd eaten in Le Deuxième several times on the Sunday fixed price menu and were always previously very satisfied, however, on our last visit not only had the price gone up but the quality had gone down noticeably. In addition, we spotted that some food had been splashed on wall next to our table; it had clearly happened some time ago as it was dried on. Not a good impression at all. In my opinion, the Sunday menu is no longer a good deal and I would go elsewhere as there are far better options available within two minutes' walk.

    We went on a Monday night, which is often quieter than other nights but we were the only people there for most of the meal, and there is no music in the restaurant...tumbleweed moment! The service was good throughout and not too intrusive. But the food was varied. The starter of souffle was a nice taste and the sauce very cheesy. The entire main of sea trout and aubergine was very very oily. I left all of my vegetables as they were just inedible. The fish was cooked well. I wouldn't have had mash as a side had I known the meal would be so greasy. Dessert of summer pudding was fine, but didn't blow me away. For £30 with a Bellini the value wasn't bad, but there are other places doing this much better and sometimes cheaper.

    Service was attentive, food very good..and came quickly without feeling we were being rushed. Busy and good vibe. i rated 3 starts for value only because we picked a la carte and i thought the bill of £90 for 2 starters, 2 mains and 4 glasses of wines was a bit steep. the 2 course for 14.50 and 3 course for 16.50 was great value but didn't appeal as much as the a la carte!

    We took advantage of the August Sunday value menu which included 1/2 bottle of wine. We were a bit concerned that the restaurant might be a bit posh, but the staff were welcoming and kind. The menu was simple but the food was well prepared and tasted great. The house wine was great too. It was an excellent start to our short break in London, and we hope to return next time we are in Covent Garden.

    We booked at this restaurant quite a long way in advance and have to say we were disappointed. The starters were ok. My partner had the steak for main which he said was nice but had been cooked well done instead of the rare that he asked for. I had the confit duck and cassoulet, the cassoulet had far too much meat in it and therefore made the whole dish far too rich. The lemon tart for pudding was delicious but I ordered the summer pudding which I have to say was disgusting. I even complained about it after the single spoonful I ate was enough to make me feel like I would lose the rest of my dinner. Overall a disappointing experience, and even after complaining they still added a 15% service charge to our bill automatically.

    This restaurant had been on our list to visit for a long time, but for one reason or another we only managed it as a group this week. It was well worth the wait. The whole party enjoyed it very much. The service was efficient but not intrusive. The food was excellent, with so many good things on the menu it took a while to make our choice. Overall it was a very pleasant afternoon

    We visited for lunch on Sat 25 July, taking advantage of the 3 courses set menu + glass of kir royale for £29 offer which was great value. I rarely write a review on a restaurant but felt compelled to this time by the high quality of the food and experience. The set menu had a very wide variety of dishes and everything we tasted was prepared and cooked to an excellent standard. Even the portion sizes were extremely generous! I couldn't find anything to fault and am definitely going to visit again.

    We went pre-theatre but had the a la carte. On a very hot evening the crispy duck salad was cool and tasty, the scallops were fine and the choritzo accompaniment was surprisingly soft and delicate. Pan fried hake with risotto was excellent, grilled halibut was moist and delicate except for the grill burn lines. We were greedy and had some dauphinoise gratin that had a gorgeous smoky flavour. Best to draw a veil over the travesty of summer pudding. Overall very good, friendly, good wine and excellent service.
