Second visit to Dean Street, this time for lunch with my parents and boyfriend. Beautiful room and we had a great spot in the window. Fish and chips were good but of varying sizes- my boyfriend and mum swapped plates. Chips arrived at different times and mine weren't hot. We had a great time, but there were some minor niggles. Overall recommended.

Overall great food and mood. A little confused by in one manager, we were asked to vacate table bar table, I instructed that I had booked at the restaurant and her general tone was quite rude.
Could be one off as all waiting staff were super friendly and attentive!

Food was good. Service is very slow. It took 20 minutes for someone to come and take our orders. When food was served, waiter didn't care to ask which of us order which plate.

The allocated table inside would have been VERY noisy. Our receptionist found an outside table right on the Dean Street pavement - really felt like the centre of the film making universe.
Huge recommendation.
Thank you The TownHouse.

Très bon service, nous avons eu le temps de profiter de l'endroit et de dîner tranquillement.
Ils ont un peu augmenté la musique au milieu de notre repas, mais finalement le type de musique était correct pour un dîner pas trop prenante.
Le repas est bien servi avec des portions correctes et délicieuses.
Nous avons apprécié notre dîner.

Unfortunately the only thing that wasn't how i would have expected was the fact i called ahead and asked for them to do something to make the table a little special for us and did not get everything the lady on the phone told me i would - flowers, candle light, wall table, complimentary truffles. we got the wall table :)

It's a great place for afternoon tea and feels very classic British, but it's a bit too dark inside the restaurant especially when it's lunch or afternoon tea.

Enjoyed the dinner there last Saturday. Was seated in the rear area. The chairs were more for lounging rather than dining so had to lean forward to eat. Was difficult to hear conversation between four people due to music and general noise.

Dissapointing visit. We choose this restaurant because the service is good and the food of a good standard, and one of us is vegan and there are always a couple of options. On this visit we waited a long time for our main courses, over 45 minutes, and one of our side orders did not arrive until we mentioned it to the waiter halfway through our meal. The main problem was that if you are going to offer two vegan options why would it be cauliflower soup followed by cauliflower salad? This is inconsiderate and lazy. Shame, but we will try one more time in future.

This is a great location for a pre-theatre meal. However, if you opt for the pre-theatre set menu, BE AWARE of the invitation to come back for your dessert (and a complimentary prosecco) after the performance. My wait staff really pushed this option, so I thought OK. When I returned around 10 on a Friday night, the place was a madhouse, there were no tables and tons of people waiting for tables. I waited a while, and offered twice to be reimbursed for the desert portion of my dinner. Finally, the waiter took me over to the hotel lobby part of the establishment and gave me piece of pie there. The whole experience was awkward and uncomfortable.

It’s loud. Very loud.
The food is pretty decent but remember you are in Soho and there is a lot of choice so I think it could try a little harder with the menu.
The room is very attractive but the noise levels, particularly at the back so bear that in mind if you are planning on talking with your companions.
We had a table in the back corner and the traffic by our table was a lot but I may have simply been more sensitive to it as I was at the end. I found the service a mix between limited and very attentive.
I like the Dean Streeet Townhouse, particularly for breakfast or an early evening drink but I found for lunch it was just a bit overwhelming.

I invited two friends as I had missed one's birthday. We had a fab time - mainly due to our waiter - think his name was Antonio. He was very attentive and made the whole experience about us (although he was very busy) HE even overheard us saying I had missed the birthday and came out with a few truffels and a candle. My friend felt very special and spoiled. Great wine recommendation and the bloody mary was very good too. I really like the comfy chairs and we had a great table for people watching. thanks guys - everytime I come so far I have never been disappointed.

Formerly 'the best chocolate cake ever' was really disappointing this time as it was served stone cold so that the icing and cream filling was hard and cold, shame as I'd come back looking forward to it.
