Well what a disappointing experience. The owners should know better and do much better elsewhere. Over priced tourist tip off. Avoid and try other options near by.
Much worse value than I remember. Food pretty average. Service slow even early lunchtime. The experience no longer lives up to the surroundings.
An absolute favourite.
Great service, charming atmosphere and good food!
Excellent choice of food and wine made this meeting of old friends very special. We ordered a varied selection of starters, mains and desserts and am happy to say they were tasty. Our serving staff were attentive and very helpful.
We arrived at 9:15pm, slightly ahead of our booking arrival time., but they found a table for us near the jazz performing stage, pretty loud but enjoyable music. My original idea was the plats du jour but that was sold out, the replacement was just as good. We ordered a ribeye as well which was excellent too. They were very generous with the food portion. The desserts were also yummy even though at 10:30, we were all tired and wanted to go home.
I must give credits to the waiters and waitresses for the professional manners as efficient service. Enjoyable evening as always.
Pas exceptionnel, mais belle ambiance typique d'une brasserie française typique. Menu peu gastronomique mais bien fait. Service très moyen.
Always a lovely night at Zedel. Cocktails in the American Bar then dinner in the brasserie and a show in Crazy Coqs. What a great team. Thank you so much for yet another superb evening.
We have been dining at Zedel almost since it started, it is a super venue.
Up to usual high standard.
Still miss the café glacé avec crême anglaise
I am a regular customer and this surely says it all!
A quiet, tasty lunch in a classic brasserie ... in the heart of London. We will be back
Very nice time in the venue.
Always good as expected
I have been dining at Zedel for many years, originally when we lived in the UK and now we live abroard I always make Zedel my focal point when I am in London.
Keep doing what you do so well!
This was our best meal in London. Really enjoyed the ambience. We were in a bit of a rush due to seeing a show. They were very accommodating. Food was very good. chocolate mousse for dessert. The restaurant is very large room and festive. I had the steak which was very good. It was a pleasant surprise after having several mediocre meals in London.
We had a quietish table as requested for our lunch in this large buzzy Art Deco-styled restaurant. The food was very tasty and the service excellent. Will definitely visit again.
Brasserie Zedel is an impressively large art deco room whcih was busy on a Sunday evening. Noise levels were not excessive and the dining experience enhanced by a live jazz band. Service was mostly good but had to remind them to bring a side order which had been forgotten, and we also had to remind them to add the desserts to the bill which were left off.
We had no complaints about the actual food, our party of four had three courses plus coffee and were very satisfied. The lobster bisque and the duck went down very well as did the fish dishes.
I'd certainly recommend Brasserie Zedel for an entertaining evening.
recommended by a friend. good service and nice ambiance. food was unacceptable. ratatouille arrived cold to lukewarm, escargots lukewarm, steak hachee raw inside, overcooked outside, sent back. Arrived raw again. Sorry to say, we left with food uneaten. Service staff apologetic.
happening place in picadilly with restaurant, bar, live theater all in one place nice!
tends to be busy and service takes a small tolll. but the baba rum new to menu is wonderful.
i like this braserie a lot, good food and excellent service
A huge "deco" dining room, I've reviewed this restaurant several times and will just echo my previous observations, good value-for-money food served by competent and friendly staff, if I was to be picky, I would say that my rib-eye steak was beautifully cooked but too many pockets of fat/sinew (which ended up on the side of the plate). A safe bet for lunch..
Brilliant atmosphere, great food and wine at a very reasonable price. I will be back!
Lovely venue, great service and the food was very god. I would recommend. relaxed atmosphere, not too stuffy, but still a special feel.
Probably my most favourite restaurant in London which has a wide choice on the menu, something for all tastes, the atmosphere is buzzing and the service of the staff is very welcoming and accommodating. Couldn’t ask for anything better, whether it be every day dining or a special occasion. I have eaten there numerous times and had a wonderful New Years’ Eve when they brought in Can Can dancers!! Excellent value for money and it surpasses my favourite Parisienne Brasserie, La Coupole.
This was my second visit to Brasserie Zedel and it impressed again. The food is very enjoyable and service is friendly and professional but it is the ambience and the decor that makes it special. It's a wonderful space with a great buzz. Further enhanced by being such good value, particularly on the prix fixe menus.
We were recommended this for a pre-theatre meal and were not disappointed. A hidden gem. Food was lovely and the service exceptional. The ambience and decor were stunning and we were asked on arrival for our theatre time to ensure that we were served and out in time. Highly recommended.
Food and service at lunch was as good as always. It was my friend's first visit to Zedel and she was impressed and plans to revisit.
Great atmosphere in a wonderful setting. Good value for money. Food fine. Service with a smile would have been nice, but attended to all requests. Would recommend to friends, and will return in future.
I have been here many times and the setting is always a surprise to guests I take there. The size, the columns, the gold, the live jazz, the ambiance and the value particularly if you stick to the set menu options.
This visit I've scored less simply because this item I chose the Halibut from the Luxe menu section. It was £26, one of the most expensive items on the whole menu but sadly had been overcooked. I know it is easy to do with fish but I hadn't expected that for a Luxe item where perhaps there is more skill, attention given.
I didn't return it though when the waitress at the end of the meal asked how everything was and I told her, she indicated I should have mentioned it and returned it. I'm confident they would have done so without hesitation so it was my reluctance to do so that left me with the less than usual experience.
It won't stop me going again or recommending this restaurant.
Good food and service, excellent value. Excellent location. Highly recommend.
Everything was wonderful, we even received a surprise congratulations dessert!
The waitress was not very engaging and was actually quite abrupt and rude.
Great venue, used to be the Atlantic Bar and Grill for those that remember it! Loads better now... But the tables turn quickly, so don't expect a long sitting, but you can retire to the bar which is excellent!
Food was excellent as always. Lobster bisque dark and rich - but croutons were soggy. Sourdough baguette chewy, crispy and replenished frequently. Chicken liver pâté smooth which spread beautifully over the bread. Tasted various wines and love the long list by any size of vessel.
You know what you’re going to get here as the menu doesn’t change. Service was very patchy though which was disappointing. They forgot one of our desserts, had to ask for service on several occasions. Still worth it though!
As ever the atmosphere was pleasantly buzzy. This was enhanced later by the house band. Food was tasty and excellent value
Most dished requested were not available. One of us is vegetarian and the vegetarian menu is terrible. Choice between an omelette and a plate of leaves.
Great taste, lovely hospitality, talented musicians.
Deserts are brilliant
Great place to eat with amazing decor. Great for any time of the day with set menu prices for pre-theatre.
I continue to love an evening at Zedel, and as usual the food; drinks; atmosphere; and surroundings were second to none. Service is, sadly, slipping. The restaurant space seems increasingly chaotic/ badly managed and the waiters/ waitresses come across as if their customers are an inconvenience. I’ll keep going though, as overall it’s a great night out.
We have been to Zedel a few times and have always, apart for one occasion, found it to be very good. A great place to take visitors to the city. Food, service and atmosphere is really good.
