J Sheekey - The Restaurant
We have been here a few times now at the bar side and the restaurant, pre-show.
The service is impeccable, efficient and delivered with charm. It was a nice touch to be thanked for coming again when leaving.
We shared a whole turbot, my favourite fish. This was perfectly cooked.
We really should be more adventurous but when you find a restaurant that delivers what we want this remains our first choice when in theatreland.
A birthday lunch for my wife. Staff were friendly and very professional, food was beautiful and service great. On a wet and cold day it was a very special meal.
Every time we have eaten here we are impressed by the service, food, ambiance and, for a crowded restaurant, the lack of defining noise. There us a buzz as a result of the usually full house but it’s never too noisy for a pleasant chat. This is our default London restaurant.
Was incredible from start to finish. Loved the sea bream and all the sides. The Oysters were out of this world. Really enjoyed the whole experience. The Apple
Crumble Dessert was superb. Will definitely come
Again and highly recommend.
Great experience...staff were friendly and really nice...atmosphere was good seemed very busy but all staff kept an eye out on who they were servicing...Food was also really good. The fish was cooked to perfection and the squid was to die for as well as the Monkfish and prawn curry.
Best fish restaurant in town, superbly cooked food fantastic service great surroundings come the revolution everyone will have to eat there
We have been there for few times. Good foods and service. I like the most is the whole crab
My husband and I celebrated our 17th wedding birthday. The settings and ambiance was great and the food was fantastic. There was items on the menu that was ideal for me as I follow ketogenic diet . The service was excellent and found the staff very helpful with wine choices.
Overall a fantastic night and I would recommend this place to my friends and family.
Brilliant birthday meal for Tom and Evan
Pleasurable experience, attentive staff, and fabulous food
Was taking a friend to the Royal Opera for the first time today and decided to take him to experience the excellence of J Sheekey at lunchtime. With a great choice for the set menu and great lunch was had.
The best service and food in London in my opinion and be using this fabulous restaurant for ten years now. Not as often as I’d like to , but whenever I’m in London I’ll always eat there if I can
Great dinner at Sheekeys. The squid was mouth watering as was the cod
Great seafood which is good value for money with an extensive wine list
Love it here. Never fails to disappoint.
As usual, the quality of the food and its preparation were outstanding, I think everyone was pleased with their selections. Typically the service is excellent at Sheekey, but tonight was a definite off night:- waiter never returned to take a pre-dinner cocktail order we had requested in the bar area; at the table, the cocktails took a long time to order; one person had wine, but was only given a tasting quantity; most dishes were served to the wrong guests and had to be switched; refreshing wine glasses required a specific request; and then as we were finishing dessert we were asked if we wanted another bottle of wine (definitely would have been better to have been asked earlier). It just seemed the waiters etc were very inexperienced - we all have to learn, but some oversight or supervision would help.
Everything’s great — except I didn’t realize that tasty tomato soup is served cold when I was ordering.
A very special meal for a very special anniversary- the whole experience was exceptional from the charming maitre d to the food to the service to the surprise truffles. Thank you to the whole J Sheekey team.
We had an excellent meal at J Sheekey. All the dishes each of us chose were amazing and very tasty and cooked to perfection. Can’t wait to be back to try the other dishes on the menu. The staff were very friendly and attentive but not overbearing.
What a lovely lunch. Food very good. Staff warm and attentive. Birthday chocolates at the end of the meal was a lovely gesture. Thank you.
What can I say?! Eating seafood until knockdown. Outstanding experience as always. Thank you
Lovely pre theatre meal. We had to ask for the set lunch menu as it wasn’t offered in the end we opted for a la carte. Food was really good but slightly pricey
Really enjoyed my lunch at Sheekeys. I thought the solettes with shrimps and capers were outstanding, and enjoyed the Herbert Hall sparkling wine. Unfortunately, my choice of rose was not available.
The only down side was that they did not bring the set lunch menu as a matter of course: a bit naughty, I thought.
Food was very tasty.
Service was satisfactory.
It is in Convent Gardens which is a lovely section of town.
Unfortunately we were overcharged for our martinis, which were very small, probably 2 ounces only, and not even served in a proper martini glass. Additionally there was an 8 dollar service charge for, get this, our tablecloth and bread basket. We’ve never heard of such a thing! Also my husband ordered the grilled fish combo and it was served to him with the bone still in one of the fishes. The waiter did not tell him to watch out for bones. And he served the grilled fish to him with a spoon. How do you eat grilled fish with a spoon? These are little things, I know and easily corrected but for the price of the food, everything should have been excellent. Don’t waste your time here.
Lovely food and great service.
A late supper after seeing Tina Turner the musical. J Sheekey did not disappoint - it is a relaxed music free adult place to enjoy a late night meal. Our mains of Sole and Monkfish and Prawn curry were both very good. Service was fine if lacking a little in warmth though I guess it was late. My only (perennial) gripe is the wine mark up which is 3x 3.5x and the list climbs very quickly. For fish this is one of the best places in London and the dining room is lovely. Being a West End stalwart it is not cheap and our supper of 2 courses + shared pudding with one bottle of Chinon came to £198 for 2. Yes! It is very good though and for us a special treat.
Took my brother here for his belated birthday. We looked at other seafood restaurants but always end up going back to JS for the seafood platter. I had the warm seafood platter though l think it could do with just a few more pieces of shellfish. They did a special dessert for my brother. I ordered a dessert called Fish Bowl which looked amazing. A jelly shaped fish, very creative and of course was delicious. Service was impeccable as usual.
Had a wonderful fish dinner prior to seeing a West End show nearby. Gracious staff. Excellent food. Will definitely return.
Lovely food and venue and amazing service and attention to detail
There is a reason this restaurant has been around forever. It's excellent. The food is always excellent. The service is attentive but not too in your face. The layout of the restaurant means it doesn't fell big and allows for a level of intimacy. It's not cheap but offers excellent value for a special night out.
Average but reliable
Wonderful seafood, delivered by polite and helpful staff.
Birthday celebration, which was booked last minute due to plan changes. The food was lovely but it was the staff who made the evening.
The staff were efficient but not very friendly or warm
The food at J Sheekey is always very enjoyable and the service very attentive.
We hadn’t been here for years but standards haven’t slipped. Excellent meal and great service.
The Dover sole which is supposed to awesome was only mediocre. The environment was fun- great location
J Sheekey’s never fails to impress. From the moment you enter, you know that your every need will be catered for.
I have been eating here for several years, the friend I visit most with always spots a well known actress or politician.
The food is the yummiest, feel good food. I had the seam bream which was perfectly cooked and seasoned and my dining partner had the sea trout. He had never eaten trout before and was slightly reluctant to go along with the waiter’s suggestion to have it slightly pink. I encouraged him to take a risk as that’s how I like it and he loved it. We had the Parmesan courgettes and summer vegetables, the latter were really outstanding.
For desert I hade the chocolate mouse which was slightly different to the norm and delicious. My friend had the black cherry dessert which was a fun take with a deconstruction. I wished I had gone for that after seeing and tasting it.
I’ll be returning again and if you love fish this is definitely not to be missed.
