Le Garrick Restaurant located in the middle of London's theatreland is an intimate French restaurant that's a favourite with theatrical types, business people and lovers of French cuisine. There is a homely restaurant at ground level, while at lower ground level the friendly bar/dining room has intimate nooks for romantic moments. Le Garrick's menu features classics and favourites of French bistro cooking, dishes like grilled entrecote with sauce poivre and pommes frites or lemon tarte with creme fraiche among the classic desserts. The two course prix fixe menu is a lifesaver pre-theatre. The entirely French wine list offers wines by the carafe as well as the bottle and glass. In an area that's chock-a-block with chain eateries, Le Garrick is a one-off.

What can I say? From the moment we arrived, Gentriana was the perfect host. A perfect pre-theatre dining experience for our family group of 7. Thank you everyone at Le Garrick!

Le Garrick is an easy option in the area. The service is quick and the food tasty - though not haute cuisine. It is also reasonable value. The ambience has a "student" feel to it - mainly in the basement. The noise and choice of music leaves much to be desired.

Always happy friendly welcome, lots of laughter, delicious food. Because it's downstairs it is quite noisy but equally the tables are cleverly arranged, it is not intrusive. It is well priced not cheap but very good value. Have tried other restaurants in the area but regularly come back here.

Frankly the food was not as good as I expected from such a well known restaurant. We chose the cafe gourmand (I think that was what it was called) for dessert. It was simply disappointing and also simply not worth the cost

We are three ladies who are probably older than your usual clientele, but we had a lovely evening. The waitress was charming, the food excellent, the ambience just right, and the music not too loud. The wine as always we felt was expensive, but it is everywhere

Le Garrick is a long-time favourite of ours and we are always very well looked after. Waiting staff now seems to change frequently, perhaps due to Brexit, but service level remains high. We prefer to be seated on ground floor but there is undoubtably better ambience at basement level. I can't recall we've ever had a poor meal and the food didn't diappoint on this occasion. Frog's legs were available as a 'special' and were really good. Nowadays, we can't manage a dessert and, in truth, those on offer don't really appeal. We'll be back.

Been here many times over the years for pre/post theatre, the service is always charming and attentive. Reasonable menu although the set meal seems to offer less choice than some restaurants. Calves liver special was excellent, onion soup could have been hotter and seemed more watery than I remembered. Not the cheapest option for a pre-theatre dinner, however Central London prices and the proximity to theatres makes it an agreeable choice and certainly It feels very authentic French.

Sat outside the kitchen door so could see inside the kitchen all night. Waitress was to busy to give us great service. Then they informed Open Table they we had not turned up!!!! We did not feel valued as a customer even though we spent £100 between 2 of us - we will not back!

Great standard of food though sometimes can be a bit frantic with heat of food pre-theatre. Quality of food is excellent though. Busy and cramped and so not for a romantic meal for two but lively and lovely buzz to the place

Atmosphere was lovely and it’s a small cozy restaurant. Waitress Johanna/Joanna or similar was outstanding and made time for us. Food however was a bit disappointing. Moules eat Frites were tasty but the mussels were extremely small and I had at least 10 closed ones. My partners steak was a bit tasteless. However quick service and pleasant people helped make up for it.

The staff were very friendly and helpful when asked questions about the food on the menu. When we were seated I thought at first it was a bit cramped (we sat at a table for 2) but it was fine. We had Beef Bourguignon and a cassoulet de Toulouse (duck, belly pork, sausage and beans) which we both thought were excellent and would definitely have again. The toilets were very clean with ample supplies of toilet roll, soap and hand cream. We would highly recommend Le Garrick French Restaurant.
