I been here many times and decided to come for dinner with soecial guests visting from overseas on Friday night on 27th July. First we wrre seated near the piano knowing pretty well we want to chat between friends. Later we were applauded by the rude service and generally made is felt unwelcome. I was very much aware that we have 2 hours slot for dinner, we felt we were rushes and generally very uncomfortable
If the intention was meant to make us eat and go quickly, the service here on that night did a brilliant job as we will never ever come back again.

Excellent food, service erratic. One time just fine, other time bored and slightly resentful/unwelcoming with blade recommendations. Splendid surroundings, immersed in a different era. Noise level adequate for easy conversation. Pricey but special not outrageous. Easy theater dining.

Lovely “formulae” meal at Zedel on Saturday - beautiful restaurant - not too loud but still with lots of atmosphere. Lovely food. Absolutely excellent service - was able to have a drink in the bar then at exactly 7:30 we were collected and shown to our table. And excellent service and good continued in the restaurant .

This is a great French Brasserie- it feels really authentic, and the food and service are excellent. The menu is long and very French. My only complaint is the toilets were very dirty.

Love this venue and the great reasonably priced foods allow for some indulgence on the drinks (of which there is a great choice).

We went to Zidel to celebrate my retirement. I was conscious that the men in the party were perhaps a little under-dressed (in shorts following a long day sightseeing on a hot day) but nevertheless we were made to feel most welcome. The service was attentive but discreet, the atmosphere relaxed and the live music topped off a great evening.

This should be the minimum standard for all restaurants. Classic set up. Great service. Delicious food. Felt very welcome amongst the huge and busy hall. Great level of choice as well. We’ll be back again, as will my guests.

A good place in the center with a lifelong atmosphere. The service is fast and efficient and the food is good. Value for money in the most touristic part of town.

This is the best French restaurant I’ve ever had in London so far. Located in Piccadilly Circus, it’s amazingly affordable despite its prime position and fantastic food. Would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

Having been to Crazy Coqs and Bar Americaine a few times, this was my first visit to Brasserie Zedel to host overseas visitors for dinner. The building and the restaurant is beautiful and a fine example of beautiful art deco architecture. The restaurant front desk is very friendly and it is great to have a vegetarian menu. The service however was fairly lukewarm. I had to prompt for drink orders, and drink refreshes after glasses had been empty for a while. English menu was not offered till asked and service was fairly disinterested at best, which I found a bit awkward in front of my guests. Given the 15% charge (instead of 12.5%) I would have expected a level of service comparable to other restaurants in this price bracket. The restaurant was not particularly busy either. Service got marginally better at the end and we were offered the dessert wine.

Great place for a pre-theatre dinner at a very reasonable price. Not much choice - a set starter and set dessert and choice of 2 dishes for mains, but the food was good. A glass of house wine was included in the price. Fantastic building worth going to just to see the decor.

I have been to Brasserie Zedel several times with a variety of friends. The service and food is consistently good. I am wheat intolerant and have no problems in finding lots of options for me to choose from. The menu is wide-ranging, cocktails are creative, the wine list is extensive and affordable.

The food was bad. It was cold and portions were small, you didn't receive much on the plate. The service was disengaged and shoddy, there was no care given in the service or the food. I took offence at this so much that I refused to pay the outrageous 15% service charge. I will never eat there again.

The Brasserie is beautiful, staff friendly and food delicious. I love the halibut and the chocolate mousse. The chocolate mouse is light and very chocolatey, I’m not a pudding person usually but this is divine.

A great destination as you can go for cocktails first.

I went with friends for a dinner. I have the spatchcock and they had steaks and we all have cheese from the cart. Food was lovely, as was the wine. my only gripe was that the spatchcock chicken was a tiny poussin but that wasnt stated. I was delicious dont get me wrong but it was tiny and obviously 80% bone. Wont be ordering that again for sure. Steaks went down well however.
