Le Garrick - Covent Garden
A delightful lunch at a discreet table with nice food at a reasonable price. What more could one want!
A great lunch with an old friend, great service great foid superb wine
Le Carrick has good French food, and efficient and friendly service from charming young French people.
Had a fabulous pre theatre meal which was amazing value for brilliant classically French food. Loved the rustic vibes, have already recommended to friends and family!
This place has real character, the food excellent and reasonably priced, service cheerful, quick and beautifully French-accented. So unless you're Nigel Farage, highly recommended. And who knows, it might even change YOUR mind Nigel. OK, probably not.
The real deal
Increadibly romantic restaurant! Amazing food and excellent service for a resonable price! Extremely satisfied! 10/10!!
The waiters where very keen! Maybe one per section rather than all of us asking us the same thing time after time. Good evening though!
Food and service were both really good. Would recommend the duck for the main course.
Lovely little table upstairs, tasty food and great service.
Thank you team Le Garrick, it was lovely and very friendly!
What a wonderful restaurant! Food was exceptional, the atmosphere totally charming. I recommend eating downstairs for the full authentic experience!
Excellent service and the food was superb. Reasonably priced for London
We had a nice table outside, but the food and service were not very good. We were asked about five times if we were ready to order by the same waitress so we felt quite rushed. We got the bavette steak and you get what you pay for: a tiny, poor cut of fatty meat, with loads of fries. The waitress did the same thing with the dessert menu, gave it to us and expected us to order immediately. The only nice thing about this meal was the Prosecco, although if you are sitting outside the waitress will place the ice bucket underneath your table, which was quite bizarre to me...
A severely disappointing early evening family dinner. The seating was uncomfortable, the service too laid-back, and the food was for two of us, poor. The duck was overcooked, chewy and tasteless, and the burger was the worst I have had in many years. Mussels were good, though. We shall not be returning.
Really friendly team, great menu and authentic French atmosphere
What a hidden gem. My husband wanted French food and I was lucky enough to find this place online. Walking by, it looks incredibly small but they have a large downstairs which in our opinion, was super cozy and charming. The food was great and the service was wonderful. I even left my brand new sunglasses there by accident, and they called me shortly after notifying me and held them for me. This would not happen at most places. Upstanding generous people!
Really nice honest French restaurant with excellent service and a great and fairly-priced (for central London) wine list!
Always come when I’m in London. Excellent food and service!!
Not a great start because only one starter was brought out (and it was a trifle cold) the wine had also not arrived. I sent the cold starter back and requested that a fresh one be brought along with the missing starter and the wine. Duly done with profuse apologies. Starters were good as were the main courses. We shared a dessert which was OK but nothing special, tarte au citron. I'm aware that the place was full and that we had a new waitress but I would still expect better service from the start. It won't stop us going again because it's a good, reasonably priced little bistro very close to Leicester Square tube so really very convenient.
Great for pre-theatre.
We normally go to one of the Italian chains of restaurants so this was a lovely change
We did main course and desserts from the pre Theatre menu comma however we had a fondue as a starter which made the meal very special
A real treat quite expensive but worth every penny
Steaks were ok, limited choice though.
The burger was undercooked so sent it back.
What came back from the kitchen was even more undercooked. So I left the restaurant hungry. Desserts were good quality but a little overpriced. Beers were expensive. Underwhelming all round. No apology from the manager for the burger which would have made up for it. The staff just hid as I left... and considering I’d settled the bill for x8 people (~£250) that was a bit weak. While serving they were friendly though.
Great, as always
Attentive staff, knowledgeable without being obtrusive
Excellent food and perfect ambiance! The service could be improved.
Very friendly place. Good food and nice staff. Recommended
We had a delicious meal, with great service, and a very French ambiance. I would definitely recommend, and hope to go again!
Probably the best pre/post-theatre value in London.
Thoroughly enjoyed this very pleasant restaurant, staff were warm and inviting and service was really good.
Great food and atmosphere the service was excellent
Me and my mum had the best meal here at the weekend. The food was delicious! My mum had the fish of the day and commented on how fresh it was. The waiters are just wonderful and really made us feel welcome. Could not fault it and we will definitely be back in the future.
Le Garrick is a long time favourite of ours and never disappoints. Post EU Referendum there has been a noticeable turnover of staff but the level of service has not deteriorated. On this occasion, the highlight of our meal was the special main "Blanquette de Veau", slow-cooked veal served in a creamy sauce. I normally don't go for creamy sauces but this was enjoyable. We didn't take a dessert, which seem a little over-priced, but enjoyed our change of red wine.
Always a great time
We booked Le Garrick for lunch as part of my Birthday trip to London. We sat upstairs, which we felt was best for lunch, with downstairs, we thought, providing a more intimate evening venue in this very typically French restaurant. We were made welcome by the very friendly staff and there was a homely, intimate and relaxed atmosphere where we easily struck up conversations with other diners and the staff. The food was excellent, well cooked and served promptly, and, although we had not told the staff it was my birthday beforehand, it came out in conversation and I was presented with a candle with my desert, a rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ and a free drink.
This was our first visit and we will definitely visit Le Garrick again. I would recommend it without hesitation.
Had a very enjoyable dining experience at Le Garrick - it was a belated birthday dinner and the manager and staff made a huge fuss of me with candles on my dessert. They sang Happy Birthday in French which was a first for me. Plus we got free 'La Poire' after dinner drink. I would certainly recommend Le Garrick to anyone wanting great French food and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
Such great service, with lots of smiles. Loved sitting downstairs for nice ambiance. I will definitely dine here again.
The food was great but the potion was small. The service was good.
It was a great experience. Will definitely come back. Our waiter was so good and made an experience more welcoming and comfortable. Thank you :)
Third visit to Le Garrick and the usual great food and great service!
I returned to Le Garrick after a number of years and found the food and wine were of pretty mediocre quality; I may not have noticed previously but I did this time. It's still an atmospheric place but I'm not sure that I will go back given there are so many good restaurants in the area.
