Unfortunately the Sole meunière made me ill that night. It couldn’t have been fresh. We narrowed it down to the fish as this was the only dish that I didn’t share with my partner who wasn’t ill. The fish was presented while, not even offered to fillet that is a disgrace frankly, for £30 quid a plate. Otherwise it was a pleasant meal. What a pity. Maybe I’ll try again but not the fish!

Brasserie Zedel is one of those increasingly rare oases. First class cuisine and service in an underground haven, decorated in a classical Parisienne style. The associated venues are equally alluring, “Le Crazy Coqs” for cabaret, Bar Americain for classy cocktails and, all underground and, of course, Bar Zedel at street level, for an informal lunch, or use drinks, again in a Parisienne style. One of our favourite retreats in town.

Attentive service - water, wine (excellent Pinot Noir) and tasty French bread offered straight away. Plenty of choice on the very much French menu as you would expect. We tried between us a tasty celeriac remoulade (heavy on the vinegar), Salade Nicoise (delicious) and French onion soup (great). Main courses of steak Bordelaise, sea bream, boeuf Bourgignon and omelette all got the thumbs up. Reliably good cooking all round. Great atmosphere in the restaurant though I was pleased to be seated kitchen-side rather than with the excellent and lively jazz band. Great spot for night out with friends.

A very special meal was anticipated as this was a catch up of many family celebrations with our sons and their glamorous girlfriends which had accumulated over the last 8 months due to lockdown etc. and well worth the trip down from Norfolk to meet up with them. Brasserie Zedel fulfilled this and more. Covoid precautions were very well observed, from the ingenious remote temperature checks in the frequent sanitisation of surfaces in the restaurant. Our eldest son and his girlfriend had visited before so my wife and I were prepared to be impressed by the spectacular restaurant. Our waitress Sylvana was friendly, efficient and highly professional with excellent knowledge of the menu and service was perfectly paced - at no time were we hurried, ideal as we all had a great deal of catching up to do - video calling has previously been a necessity as my wife and I both fall into the “elderly, vulnerable” sector ( though we don’t feel it!) but was no substitute for our lunch party today. Between us we sampled many dishes, all excellent. As an example I had oysters, followed by steak tartare, and a very indulgent banana sundae. The numerous complimentary petit fours marking our family events were very much appreciated.
We will definitely return, thanks again to Silvana and her colleagues both in the restaurant and the kitchen for a very memorable family event.

Zedel just reopend for lunch and it was a fantastic experience. We went for a birthday celebration, and we enjoyed it very much.
Service was excellent, we had our temperature taken at the door, and were then shown to our seats, a table that was socially distant.
The food was exquisite, and they offered us a small drink to celebrate the occasion (a very nice touch).

The decor is as beautiful as always.

Highly recommended

Great food and drinks. Lovely ambient live music in the background and exquisite decor. I particularly like the American Bar and thought the welcome drink was a lovely touch.
Not a huge fan of the time limit on the table, considering the spend and the sheer size of the restaurant.

Despite there reduced numbers in the current era, Zedel still delivers a serious WOW factor when you walk into the grand dining room! Food was great as always, Service started a little frosty, but warmed up pretty quickly.

We had a promotional 3 course menu for £20 which was tasty and a good value for money. Nice house wine too

The service was excellent and the waiter was very helpful. It was quiet enough to be able to talk without straining one's throat.

The only thing that I didn't like was the strong chlorine smell that didn't allow me to enjoy my food properly. I understand there are anti corona virus measures in place, but it would be nice if they could use not so smelly disinfectants.

It was a real treat to return to Zédel last Wednesday for the first time since “Lockdown “.

Familiar surroundings, good food and excellent service. Is it my imagination or has the overall cost increased? The bill (even with EOTHO discount) was about £5 per head more than before - not helped by 15% service charge. Discounted on the one hand and yet adding on to negate the effect of the scheme.

However we enjoyed being at one of our favourite restaurants. COVID precautions were in place but unobtrusive. Two lots of temperature taking - front door & on entering the restaurant was a bit excessive.

The quartet was too loud with no melody and the violin was drowned out! Conversation became impossible towards the end of our meal.

All that said, we hope to return again soon. We prefer lunchtime but not yet an option in the new word. David Whittaker. 07884444393 (Mobile)

A fun, lively restaurant and has a feel of elegance. Exceptionally reasonable prices for Central London. The food is very good and they also did provide a vegitariian on request.
Lovely staff. This is a firm favourite for me and I have visited quite a few time.
A good venue for a First Date too.
