A word from Palm Court Brasserie
Set in the heart of Covent Garden and overlooking the piazza, Palm Court is the quintessential, intimate Parisian-style brasserie. Opened by renowned London restaurateur Brian Stein, it has been lovingly crafted to recreate a classically 1920"s art nouveau environment.
Popular with all, Palm Court generates the kind of atmosphere that makes you want to linger. Whether you are dropping in for a meal or a glass of wine with friends and family, we create the ideal environment to help you relax and unwind.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "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."

A fantastic night we will be returning :)"

  • "We had a great pre-theatre meal. There was plenty of choice on the set menu and all the food was really tasty. The portions were generous-the deal was good value."

  • "A great restaurant, very friendly, a nice feel. Bigger than it appears on the outside. Really nice food. Very attentive staff. An absolute bargain with the 50% deal. Would definitely recommend to friends and return myself."

  • "Very nice meal with attentive good service and a nice atmosphere. Will come again, especially good value with the 50% off a la carte offer."

  • "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."
    dined on 26/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 26/08/2014
  • "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"

    dined on 25/08/2014
  • "Had a lovely meal here on Sunday night. We were held up but they didn't mind us being late and couldn't be lovelier. Food was amazing and big portions. We came here about 3 years ago and was just as good then as now. Will definitely come here again when we are next in London."

    dined on 20/08/2014
  • "Attentive staff and a good menue, generally good value,though we both had the beef bourgignon ,and we have had better,the cuts of beef were not up to scratch and some were left on the side of the plate. all other aspects were good and we have had no problems before"
    dined on 20/08/2014
  • "Good food, good service, good value. Have eaten here many times and will return again, bringing visitors from out of London to somewhere I know is reliable and affordable."
    dined on 19/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 18/08/2014
  • "Really good spot for dinner and have been several times though the last time food was not quite up to 5star standards though still good so may have been a one off. Food and drink prices are very reasonable for the location and service is to a very high standard"
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "This was the best meal I have had for ages, everythinhg was perfect, the food the service and the ambience. Would highly recommend and will definetly be going again."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "I have been here several times now and it is always excellent in every way. Really good food and service. Staff are welcoming and friendly. Terrific value for money."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "We booked this place with the special offer, they used to have the duck breast but this time they take it off the list. In general we think that the mains were a bit salty, but the starters and dessert was pretty good."
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "Had a pre-theatre meal, which was tasty and delivered quickly by very friendly staff."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "Lovely little place and with the 50% of great value. We went for the Baked Brie starter which was lovely and the tiger prawns and lobster thermador mains and must say was gorgeous."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "It was our first time at Palm Court. Service was friendly, some dishes better than others, lamb and seabass were our highlights. Overall, with the 50% TT offer, very good value."
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "Really good meal and nice ambience and service. £150 for 5 of us was not bad value, but did not get offered any of the discounts offered on Opentable"
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "We came here for a meal with friends last week., and were so impressed we booked again on Friday!"
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 11/08/2014
  • "We arrived early. Directed to a place to get drinks. The waiter then came to find us when he had got the table ready. Excellent meal good service."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Three pals & I met up here for a gossipy lunch & it proved to be the perfect venue: cheerful, friendly, lively with delicious food & wine. 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."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Booked myself and boyfriend in at Palm Court on a Friday night. We ended up running very late for our table, yet it was no issue for them to push our booking back by 45 minutes. We received a warm welcome and were given a choice of two tables. We ordered a bottle of chateauneuf du pape, which was delightful, and went straight for a main course. When ordering the lamb I was asked how I'd like it cooked - excellent! The lamb and the summer chicken were both divine. We skipped dessert as it was extremely late, but the entire experience was perfect, I would highly recommend this quaint little restaurant."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Sea bass was not hot when served and excessively greasy, so much so that the entire plate left grease stains on the table cloth. Side of' steamed' new potatoes, also came coated in oil or butter. Dessert was equally disappointing - too much chocolate (and of an inferior quality) in the affogato - completely overpowered the coffee and ice cream which are supposed to be the two key ingredients in the dish. Service was civil but inattentive and distracted. Many other establishments within walking distance of this restaurant offer considerably better quality and better value. Premises tired and shabby, and ladies' toilets in need of general repairs."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Return visit to my favourite restaurant in London was, as usual, most enjoyable with welcoming reception, delivious food and excellent service."
