    The service was poor Food chosen wasn’t cheap but it was sub standard Steak not very good for £32.50 Cod cold and with a pathetic array for vegetables with it Part of the order not brought (they forgot) Frankly really bad overall despite an apology what should have been a nice after theatre 40th birthday meal was awful

    We enjoyed a very nice prix fixe lunch at Zedel. The steak haché with peppercorn sauce and frites was exemplary; additional peppercorn sauce was provided free of charge. A decent caramel tart followed, and this impeccably French two-course lunch set us back a notional £13 each - although, with 15% service charge, £1.50 'cover charge' and some water, it ended up closer to £20. Still a bargain though to eat great food in one of London's loveliest dining rooms.

    Fantastic atmosphere, good food but servers were extremely rude. With a disrespectful comment said towards me just before ordering. The chips were missed out but when they did eventually arrive they were removed from the bill. Would still go back as the ambience was great for a late night meal..

    Initially was given seat which I didnt like, I asked if i could sit somewhere more private, but sadly stuff didnt accomodate me, said seats were already booked, they moved us to another table which wasnt good anyway. then waited for waiter 15min to take order, which was dissapointing, when my husband wanted to order food, the waiter kept asking him again and again, like he didnt understand the english language, that took more of my time… Drinks came within 2 mins which was nice, followed by good food too, but after 1hr it got very busy and loud, because i was seated at a table near kitchen, lots of waiters/stuff were walking around which didnt make it feel comfortable or more private. I could not talk to my partner, so had to leave without any extra drinks or dessert. I found another restaurant which was private with lots of spaces. Sadly I would never return to this place again as the whole experience was not excellent at all. I should have booked different restaurant for my needs.

    Enjoyable birthday celebration with great ambience and excellent service - made more special by Zedel producing a lovely little cake for our daughter with birthday greetings in French! We dined a la carte so knew this would be more expensive but this meant that we couldn’t really afford desserts as well…

    Not feeling really welcomed! - "Here's your table you have 90min." - being brief with the guests - atmosphere louder like a railway station, with a nice look - service improvable - old hard bread with butter as amuse-gueule- starter and main were good

    Second visit to the Zedel. Our first visit was 5/5 but this time was not so good. The Choucroute was very soggy . Last time we ordered the Tripe and a Steak and they were superb. Also the service was not as good as before.

    Brasserie Zedel is one of my favourite central London restaurants. It provides consistently good service for quite a large restaurant and also offers a fair price. For coeliacs, it has a gluten-free menu which you should request. Their gluten-free bread is possibly the best I've had in a London restaurant. This time, I dined with a French friend that thoroughly enjoyed it too. It has options to suit all palates and budgets - fish, chicken, meat, vegetarian. The wine list is affordable and it also offers carafes of decent wine. It is very close to Piccadilly Circus and the tube station. Although you have to walk downstairs (there is also a lift) to the restaurant, the room has high ceilings and is well lit.

    Since I discovered Zedel it has been my place of choice in Central London. My gluten sensitivity is catered for, there is a reasonably priced food and drink offer and waiting staff efficient and friendly. I love the ambience and hope to visit again soon. Thank you for a wonderful lunch celebrating a special Birthday with my friend.

    This is such a lovely dining room with a great buzz. Food is good but getting on the pricier side now, whereas it used to be more like a French bistro where you got good food for decent prices. Usually I've had great service here but this time it was slow and one waitress was actually quite rude when we tried to get her attention after waiting 20 minutes to order dessert. Still, it's a lovely venue in central London.
