    The service was just bad apart from the waiter who served us at the American bar while we waited to be seated. No one came to pick us up from there for a long time. After we were seated at the dining area, our drinks didn’t arrive for quite a while, when they arrived we had the wrong wine. The food was good. Our plates didn’t get collected for ages. So even if we wanted to order more we just didn’t have the will or the time. Found the price for what it was very steep.

    Brasserie Zedel is a lovely venue however it is very large and has bright lighting so is not particularly good for an intimate dinner . The food was ok but nothing special so I may not choose to go again

    An early evening meal with friends. If you want to impress without spending a fortune then this is the place to go. The room is huge, gold leaf (well, it looks like it !!) up there on the high ceilings. A proper Parisian feel about the place. A busy, but the service is prompt and friendly. We all ordered something different from the menu but it all arrived at the same time. I opted for the sardines.. lovely.

    Busy busy busy. The waiters are so good but struggled to keep up with the sheer volume I think. My steak hâche was tepid & a little over cooked.( I asked for M/R & received M). My partners chop was huge & looked lovely. Veg really good as always. Nice wine, not too pricey and the onion soup & bread was delicious as always.

    Service was slow and rude. Food was average at best. We waited five minutes to be shown our table without being spoken to. The front desk were on the phone and raised a hand to our faces to show he was busy without comment or apology. So many better options in the area. A shame it’s gone so down hill.

    Took my niece and her friend for their birthday and they were delighted with the venue. Its buzzing and the service is very French and efficient. The food is delicious with a wide variety on the menu for all tastes. We had a vegetarian and they were satisfied with the options and I had the steak tartare which was perfect. Love coming here and it didn't disappoint.

    Nice enough but they brought the wrong wine and forgot the coffee. If they choose to add 15% service charge I expect more. For a bill of £100 for lunch for two people I expect "much more"

    The atmosphere is great and one of the only places to serve food after the shows finish in town. The vegetarian options weren't particularly varied and seemed slightly over priced - they were the same price as the meat and fish but with far simpler ingredients. Wine was great and service was very good.

    Great food and setting. Service was ok but waited 40mins for bill despite requesting one. It only arrived when we started to leave! A contrast to earlier in the week when a friend and I were presented with the bill and card machine before we’d finished our meal. The cloakroom was closed despite having checked online beforehand so my guest needed to trundle her small wheelie case into the restaurant. Took a little bit of the shine off a celebratory lunch. Shame because it is a beautiful place!

    We waited for an hour and half for our food. Nobody came to offer water refill or taking drinks order. Waitress came by to push the table against the sofa (while I was sitting on the sofa) as close as possible so I was squashed and felt very uncomfortable. Frankly worst dining experience I’ve had in a long while. We only had bread and starter in the an hour and half we waited for, my friend fainted afterwards because of the heat and just the fact we kindly reminded them multiple times enquiring over status of our food yet the food still didn’t come. The floor manager said not to charge for anything from our table to apologize- yet my credit card still was charged against Brasserie Zedel (they took the detail during booking). All in all, could just be the day that they were busy? (I’ve been to busier restaurants yet still had better service) but, would seriously never go again and probably would tell this story to any of my friends who ask me about brasserie Zedel.

    We had a good late lunch at Zedel. Generally good experience - although sone aspects of the service were a bit slow. No offer of dessert and we had to go up and ask for the bill. Not big things and as usual the food quality was excellent.

    The Art Nuevo style is impressive and the service was friendly and efficient. The food was tasty and came in reasonable portions. The only negative is the prices were a bit high for the quality of the food on offer….. Mains ranged from around £20 to £38, 3 mains, 3 desserts and two glasses of house wine cost £135. An automatic 15% service charge was added…. 10% or 12.5% is fine but 15% perhaps reflects the tourist trap location close to Piccadilly Circus.

    We enjoyed a very nice prix fixe lunch at Zedel. The steak haché with peppercorn sauce and frites was exemplary; additional peppercorn sauce was provided free of charge. A decent caramel tart followed, and this impeccably French two-course lunch set us back a notional £13 each - although, with 15% service charge, £1.50 'cover charge' and some water, it ended up closer to £20. Still a bargain though to eat great food in one of London's loveliest dining rooms.
