    Disappointed
    Dined on 30/8/2014
    We chose this as it rated at 400 out of 17,000 on another famous review site. Having experienced Palm Court Brasserie 'HOW?' was the only question we had. If you like your food overcooked and literally swimming in half a centimetre of oil I suppose you might like it. I don't think we were alone. The tables next to us seemed to have different dishes but the same oil levels. Having been to France on many occasions there is absolutely no need. Its just poor French cooking, plain and simple. Wine was very poor quality too. I suppose the warning signs were there. Right next to Covent Garden, fish and chips on a French menu - but the reviews made us give it a go. But only the once...

    We have eaten at this restaurant twice when visiting London to visit the theatre, once with friends and once as a couple. On both occasions we had a lovely meal in clean,lively and atmospheric surroundings. There are of course many restaurants that offer good food and a pleasant atmosphere but it is the service here that has brought us back. It is outstanding because it is personable and at the same time professional. You feel as if you are a valued and welcomed customer and it is much appreciated.

  • Pre-theatre lunch with 7 year old
    Anonymous
    Dined on 27/8/2014
    A delicious 2 course lunch. We selected the pre theatre options but the main menu also sounded lovely. Our 7 year old was able to choose her main meal from a kid's menu but her dessert was from the main menu. Excellent service and a great atmosphere. We'd researched where to eat before a trip to the theatre as unfamiliar with the area and were not disappointed. Please note that 12.5% is added to the bill. This is clearly stated but makes a significant difference to the overall price.

    Menu is out of date and a number of items including drinks are no longer available. This led to some confusion. Food somewhat lacklustre especially given the number of outstanding dining establishments in the area.

    Given its location right in the piazza of covent garden I wasn't sure what to expect as many restaurants here are overpriced and lacking in quality because tourists keep them busy regardless. This place was a welcome surprise, good food fairly priced and attentive service. I enjoyed every course and would definitely go back. There is a charming atmosphere that is relaxed and informal I would go here on a date or with friends. I had the open table discount menu which was good value.

    I booked a table for 5 to eat before we went to the theatre. We ate off the pre-theatre menu & the food was excellent. We also had a bottle of the hose red & white wine - both of which were very nice. We had a lovely evening & the staff were really nice & helpful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    I chose the restaurant on the basis of the menu initially but the offer of 50% discount on food as I had booked through Top Table made it really outstanding value. Four of us ate prior to going to the theatre- food choices were great, including specials. Service was brilliant, our waiter had a real sense of humour which made the meal very enjoyable. I can definitely recommend the Palm Court Brasserie if you are in Coventry Garden or going to a nearby theatre

    Considering how near this is to the middle of Covent Garden, the food has always been great and good value. We felt on this visit however prices had gone up and quality has dropped. The service was good, there was nothing wrong with the food it just wasn't wow and the portions were not very big. We had king prawns in garlic and rump of lamb. Desserts at nearly £6 were poor value.

    We visited the restaurant on 23rd August prior going to the theatre. The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. We selected our meals from the main menu and I had Sea Bass and my wife had Tiger Prawns. Both meals were excellent. We had 3 courses plus a bottle of very nice wine and the overall bill (with service charge) was £95, which was reasonable. Overall a very good experience and we will visit again.

    As soon as us four girls walked in, we all nudged one another and said "ooh, this is nice isn't it?". And it was. Lovely atmosphere, discreet & efficient service and good food. Seafood linguine was a winner for me. With the mid week 50% off deal we each paid £16 for 2 courses & a coffee - brilliant value. I've already told friends how nice it is.

    Visited twice in two days. The first time we needed a quick turn round pre-theatre dinner and managed two courses which were very well-presented, cooked and served. Excellent. Next day we returned for a leisurely three course meal from the "Specials" Menu which was good except for the half chicken which was too large, with the quantity exacerbated by the inclusion of an unwanted by a huge Yorkshire pudding.

    Food generally was excellent although the Sirloin Steak (blue) was unacceptably cold when it was delivered to the table. Additionally the meat was extremely difficult to cut. The service of the desserts (4 crème brulees & 2 ice creams) took longer than we expected and was justified, particularly since we had previously indicated that we needed to complete our meal in good time so to get to the Lyceum for the afternoon performance.

    Booked with top table 50% off deal. Steaks were not included in the offer which is a shame because I wouldn't mind paying extra surcharge for it. without the steaks there are hardly any beef dishes in the menu. But overall quality of food was good. All four of us went for three courses from the a la carte menu. Each dish were tasty and nicely presented. Chianti was delicious too. Service was efficient and prompt and our waiter was really nice and friendly so were the rest of the staff we came to contact with. 50% discount on food made the meal outstanding value overall. I would most definitely visit again and would be very happy to recommend Palm Court for a very pleasant dining experience. Well done Palms. Keep up the good work.

    I actually went with a friend, but this Parisienne style dinner stop would also work perfectly for a date. Candles, attentive service (though slacked near the end of the meal), and delicious food that can be shared. We used the 50% voucher which made everything superb in terms of value for money. It was good quiet for a post-theatre meal, meant that we were out of the door and in bed at a reasonable hour - I can imagine the atmosphere to be a lot more lively and approachable earlier in the evening, as it's just off Covent Garden. Would highly recommend.

We used the 2 course lunch option which was really good value. The main menu looked good too. The attentive service was unobtrusive and despite the busyness we never felt rushed so could enjoy our time together & linger over our coffee. We'll certainly return.
