Celebrating my brother birthday . The place is beautiful and was buzzing . Excellent menu and fantastic value. Our food was cooked to perfection . The choice of drinks perfect. The staff went out of their way to make us very welcome and find a perfect table for my brother as he suffers deafness so noise can be a huge problem for him. He was also given a lovely birthday cake which he was thrilled with. Thanks to all the staff for making his birthday lunch perfect. Hope to return soon

Waiting staff were very friendly. However the front of house staff (reception) were very robotic. There was a sarcastic tone when they “welcomed” us. Food was outstanding as always.

Fairly bog standard Parisienne Brasserie food at good prices for Central London. The Prix Fixe menu is very good value. We went in tier 2 and there were empty tables between every table so good social distancing.

The venue is the main draw there not the food to be honest.

Made a last minute reservation so really pleased to have acquired a table. First time visit; surprised to see additional queues internally for the different eateries. Bit confusing with no one present to help/guide. Eventually found the right room and was informed I couldn't 'just walk-in' and eat there - perhaps I should try the other rooms - as I hadn't booked. I have booked, I explained. 'Oh?...' He said... It took 15 minutes to enter and be seated and was told we would have to vacate the the table on time as they were 'fully booked tonight'. So despite the delay not being our fault we felt rushed service team constantly bumping into our chairs - despite the extra space between tables due to Covid risk management). Nonetheless the wine was delicious and we left feeling gastronomically content. Determined back in the hope that a more positive memory can be recreated to match the beautiful setting.

Tier 2 restrictions made this a very different lunching experience. Very reduced covers with empty tables between tables in use. Staff so reduced that they couldn’t cope. Onion soup not hot enough (sent back), wrong main course brought and advertised special lunch deal for London Restaurant Festival was in fact no more than the standard prix fixe. Such a shame, we have been devotees for years but this was not good.

What an amazing space, really evoking a large French brasserie. Food was very good, excellently priced, and service attentive. And despite these COVID times it was pretty full on a midweek lunchtime - well done!

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.
