Although Zedel's is a huge restaurant the service and attention we received from the staff team was friendly, caring and attentive. It is a great venue for a delicious pre theatre dinner in beautiful French Art Deco surroundings.

Very good value and a beautiful venue. If I were to give some negatives I would say the room is loud because of the high volume of people and the service was not as fast as other places we have been to. Although I must say that the staff were really friendly and therefore we tipped them generously despite the kitchen not producing as quick as we would have liked.

Impressive venue and ambience- great to take visitors to London to. Steak was more mince meat though and mine came much more well done that everyone else’s despite asking for it medium (after being told rare wasn’t an option due to the meat cut). Hard to complain with £9.95 for 2 courses though !

We were there on a Sunday evening, atmosphere was great, with live music too. We had a great table and I had mentioned it was a special occasion for my companion and Zedel were very kind to present a plate with "felicitations" and a macaron on it. It was a very kind touch which my companion was extremey appreciative of.

A memorable evening in this wow factor establishment.

Another great evening at Zedel with amazing oysters and generally a nice atmosphere, food, live music (Brazilian jazz standards) classy and discreet. A great all-rounder. A shame only that one of the servers seemed to be there against her will, which is probably not helped by the automatic 15% gratuity (we were 6). Anyway love the place and will return!

Portion size seemed to be considerably less than on previous occasions to the point that although having a starter and a main which is usually sufficient I went ahead and had pudding. Although it was nice I prefer not having pudding for health reasons but I was still hungry after two courses. I usually love going to Brasserie Zedel but I might think twice before rushing back as the portion size was so small. I’m not sure if that was because I had reserved the table through Opentable. Of course I might be wrong but that was my impression.

Boeuf Bourgogne arrived extremely chewy - mostly all gristle and tendon very little actual meat. It was so inedible I had to return it. They exchanged it for a steak haché which is effectively just a burger patty without a bun, without salad just lying on its own on a giant plate. It was so laughable. £10 for a burger patty and £16.50 for an extremely poor boeuf Bourgogne. Waste of money.
Extreme meh.

Dinner was lovely but we had been seated by the stage despite having booked several weeks in advance. When the band started we had to leave as we couldn't hear ourselves speak :(

We went for a birthday lunch. From arriving to departing the service was so nice, the birthday girl felt very special. The food was so nice, the atmosphere was cheerful, if a little noisy but to be expected with the height of the ceilings. Would definitely go again.

This is my second visit but my first to the basement. The restaurant is quite impressive and very reminiscent of Parisian bistros, with closely packed tables, huge amounts of noise and activity. However, don't expect an intimate conversation. Our neighbour who happened to be French struck up an interesting conversation and that is one of the charms of this type of bistro dining. On the food side, it was average. I had roasted pheasant but came in pot roast with winter vegetables. The meat was not as tender as i would like but quite acceptable. Service was alittle slow not surprisingly, but when you got the waiter's attention was quite prompt. It was a nice experience but not sure I will return

Consistency across the board. Straightforward brasserie food well done and made special by extra touches such as specially baked bread, great cafetiere coffee, freshness of ingredients. Customer service always good and welcoming. If the rare mistake happens, put right promptly with a smile. One of my favourite places in London.

Early evening, New Year's eve. Restaurant was busy, but not overly so. A few delays getting drinks, menus and then some bread. My partner liked the formulae meal, and we both enjoyed the coffee and petit fours. I was a bit disappointed that the herring starter turned out to be smoked, but menu did not make this clear.

Solid. As usual.
Besides the fact the waiter disappeared for 30 mins and we had to find an alternative one, it was ok. He then took our plates whilst one of us were still eating their meal.
Disappointing that the amazing roast chicken isn’t a staple on the menu and always on offer; The dish we actually booked to enjoy there.

I have reviewed BZ many times and today was no different, good value for money, decent food, staff were very good and the ambience is fine. I wasn't so keen on the bar in the foyer though, a bit dark and service was indifferent as only one bartender was on. I'll probably go back as it ticks all the boxes.
