A word from Le Garrick - Covent Garden
Le Garrick Restaurant located in the middle of London's theatreland is an intimate French restaurant that's a favourite with theattrical types, business people and lovers of French cuisine.There is a homely restaurant at ground level,while at lower ground level the friendly bar/dining room has intimate nooks for romantic moments. Le Garrick's menu features classics and favourites of French bistro cooking, dishes like grilled enrecote with sauce poivre and pommes frites and lemon tarte with creme fraiche among the classic desserts. The two course prix fixe menu is a lifesaver pre-theatre. The almost entirely French wine list offers wines by the carafe as well as the bottle and glass. In an area that's chockablock with chain eateries, Le Garrick is a one-off.

    Food was only OK, The tuna was overdone and the duck was dry and uninspired. The setting was lovely, but my water glass spent most of the meal empty. Could have been much worse, but will not be at the top of my list for return visits...

    We had a lovely meal pre-theatre, managed to book a table upstairs earlier in the day but was busy when we arrived so nice atmosphere. Service was a little slow to begin with (waited quite a while for wine), but picked up once we had starter, very attentive. Food was lovely and pleased my French guest who said it reminded her of home and made her very happy! Very enjoyable meal overall.

    Went to le Garrick at 3pm on Saturday, so not overly busy. The waiter was great and the drinks were good value. However , the food was disappointing ,the tuna steak was so dry it was inedible and my steak was a bit stringy.The ambience was really good and we sat outside for drinks first and that did give you the Paris feel. It would be difficult to recommend as it was below average, but they might have had a bad day.

    I loved this place! It's quirky but still romantic & in a fantastic location, right between Leicester Square & Covent Garden. The food was delicious & very affordable plus we received the best service i've ever had! (If Virginie is serving you it will be an experience you'll never forget). I highly recommend on all accounts!

    A lovely small French restaurant between Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square. We dined downstairs in the cellars. The cellars have low lighting with candles on the table. A nice ambiance and perfect for a romantic evening. The service was very friendly and prompt. The food was tasty and very reasonable. A little Gem in the heart of the West End of London.

    I booked here for a birthday meal with Mrs Weasel based on reviews on this site and was not disappointed. We both like restaurants to be lively and vibrant with the service to be friendly and attentive without being too in your face and asking if everything is ok after every mouthful. Le Garrick gets everything spot on in this respect and the bill was very reasonable too for the area. The weakest point was actually the food which we thought was only average, we both had duck (one magret and one confit) which were unremarkable but I've had a lot worse. I'll defo go back and try something else another day though as the atmopshere and all-French (or faux French?) waiting staff were wonderful.

    Great food, service, ambience - I honestly have no complaint about this restaurant. It's centrally located near the theatre district so it's great for food before/after and also to Leicester Square or Charing Cross station. The wine list is simple but sufficient for the restaurant. The food comes fast and the servers bring a certain jolliness rarely seen in most London establishments.

    We went at Le Garrick for a Thursday night date and we were very pleased with our choice. Another review said 'perfect for date night' and it's absolutely true! The food was very good, the service was fast and good (maybe a bit too attentive, asking us always if we're ok or need anything). All the waiters have a fake French accent but that's quite nice for the whole french experience. I highly recommend the creme bruelee (hope I spelled it right).

    Booked online and requested a seat by window upstairs which they accommodated, even though I only booked on the day for an early (6pm) dinner. Tasty meal, served quickly by friendly staff. All tables upstairs were full which created a nice buzz. Good menu choice serving traditional French food and selection of wines which were reasonably priced. Had the cheese for dessert and it was outstanding. There is seating downstairs, which is where toilets are located, but not easy to get to if you have mobility issues (or a glass too many!)

    Despite being half an hour early for our booking our table (upstairs by the window as requested ) was ready for us. A post matinee dinner before the train home at 8pm was the plan. An excellent French meal was had by the four of us. Faultless classical French cooking. An excellent not too expensive wine list and outstanding service from our waiter (who turned out to be Italian!!). A most enjoyable experience. We shall return (again)

    We were seated downstairs in the basement on a tiny table that had been put in a doorway to maximise every single bit of floor space in this small restaurant. We asked if we could sit at a different table only to be told there weren't any available. Funny that, as I could see about 5 that were empty for the entire time we were there. We both ordered the baby chicken - it arrived literally 5 minutes after we ordered it. At first we thought there was no way they could cook a chicken that fast, but I guess they have several cooking constantly?! The chocolate fondant was delicious!! This could be a very romantic restaurant - but only if you get a decent table. Staff were friendly.

    We were a party of six and I was paying to treat my friends. The service was very slow which meant that I had to order more wine than I intended as we often sat without any food or without our plates being cleared away. We waited a very long time for our food order to be taken too. That said, the food was very good. Simple French classics and decent size portions. Although two of my guests loved their scallops, they ordered Coquilles St Jacques, but instead received a green salad with scallops on the top. I have booked another table in a couple of weeks time.

The menu is not extensive but what is on offer is varied and represents good value and is cooked to perfection. It scores maximum points on all levels and we will definitely return when we next go to London.

    Close to theatre land Le Garrick is a busy -2 floor bistro, serving Frnech food. The downstairs area is quaint but the tables are very close together and it can be quite noisey. We ordered the duck breast which was a good size but some pieces were not too tender. The waiter had a diffcult time moving between the tables, which spoiled it a bit. OK for pretheatre dinner when you don't have much time but a bit too crowded for a special dinner.

    An authentic French restaurant in Covent Garden. The menu is comprehensive with several additional dishes of the day. The cuisine was very good and the service of a high standard. However the incorrect main dish was brought to the table but this error was immediately corrected and as compensation two digestifs were offered on the house, The wine list is good and reasonably priced.

    On arrival was shown to table, a little quiet. Was given the menus and left for a few minutes. Waiter came back with water and warmed French bread basket (which was refilled when emptied) and took our drinks order. returned with drinks and took food order, gave advice, when asked, regarding the dishes, very helpful. Without repeating entire order, can say the food was excellent for all. a good 5 minutes between each course and the desserts (can we go in there for multiple desserts only!). Went on recommendation, will be going again as will other members of my party.
