Pre/post Theatre

In the heart of Theatreland, 28-50 Covent Garden is the face of the St Martin's Courtyard dining quarter. Hand-picked wine lists curated by passionate in-house sommeliers, this big-sister of the famous Marylebone brasserie features a plethora of accessible and high-end wines by the glass - some exclusive in the UK (such as the Chateau de Candie from the restaurant's own vineyard in the Alps). Menu is from Julien Baris, doing what he does best – simple, seasonal modern European cuisine, cooked from scratch on the premises, and of course, steaks, big and juicy, and lots of seafood. Design by Richard Green fuses 28-50's acclaimed no-nonsense wine-workshop style with more than a nod to all-things bling, featuring bubblegum pink and sky-blue velvet armchairs at every table. 3 dining rooms, a connoisseurs wine-bar, an extravagant champagne bar and a killer soundtrack make 28-50 Covent Garden is a must for pre/post theatre or a night of relaxed fun with good food and wine.

I have just eaten the most delicious lunch at 28-50 restaurant in Covent Garden.
I loved the fact that there was seafood on the menu and enjoyed some tasty oysters for starter, followed by one of the most tender steaks I have eaten in a long long time. My friend chose a Burrata salad to start (which gave me food envy) and a cod dish which smelt and looked divine.
As with most restaurants, they have just re-opened but you would never know. The staff were excellent, attentive and welcoming and the service was slick.
The dining room is elegantly decorated and this combined with delcious food and great service makes this a restaurant I will come back to time and time again. Highly recommended.

Good morning. Nothing is frozen at our restaurants except our home-made ice-cream! Confused by your statement, to be honest. We're very sorry that you didn't enjoy your time with us though - especially after the wonderful Saturday when we finally re-opened. We hope you will try us again one day.

We're sad to receive your review, especially after the hard work of re-opening. Really disheartening. Saturday was such a wonderful experience, seeing so many of our regulars back. We don't agree that our steaks are less than average - we buy the best quality beef and our grill chef is very experienced. Service: so so - we will look into - but masks don't help communication to be honest. Our food margins are restaurant-standard - I'm sorry your felt it was overpriced. And dogs are welcome!

Welcoming, friendly and unhurried service. We were dining at an odd time, 16.30 in time for an early evening theatre performance, so in fairness there were not many other diners. The food was excellent, we all enjoyed the garden sharing platter and the duck was delicious. A good selection of wines at reasonable prices, and I'm sure the desserts would have been amazing but we ran out of time.

Lovely venue with a great ambience. Service is excellent and very friendly and helpful. A great choice of food that enables you just have a bottle of wine and a cheese plate or, if you're feeling hungrier, a more more substantial meal. The burger was fantastic. Choice of wines was excellent and the fact you can get a decent bottle for £25 always get the thumbs up in my book.

We saw the rating is 4.6 on google that's why we went for birthday celebration. It looks different than expected, I guess it was the blue light that makes it looks less grand. We had the pre-theatre dinner, food wasn't great, it's rather a bit dull. The average age group that was in the restaurant was 50+ so wasn't sure if this restaurant's food was targeting towards this age group. Overall, not going to recommend this place if you are going for pre-theatre dinner set.

Good location, nice interior, good but not amazing food for the high-prices. Music was too loud and we had to ask them to turn it down, but they were happy to do so. The restaurant was empty which was odd for a Saturday night in London. No real reason for this except the high prices in an area with lots of choice.

We love 28-50 and have been dining at their restaurant in Marylebone Lane for several years. We were delighted when they opened Covent Garden as this gives us a favourite place for food & wine when we are in the West End. The service is always professional & attentive. The menu options are varied and incorporate seasonal ingredients, perfectly cooked. Every dish is presented well and delicious. We always ask the sommelier to choose a glass of wine to go with each course, and as there is a very good selection of wines by the glass, this enhances our experience. Highly recommended.

We had a delicious meal and my grandson adored the mussels! Our steaks were yummy and cheeseburger very much enjoyed. The chairs were oh so comfy, I wished I could have taken them home! Our waitress was charming and we received excellent service! My only negative was that the lighting was a bit subdued so a bit tricky to read the menu at first! We will definitely be back!

The food was excellent and the restaurant fabulous, gorgeous seating and colours. The set menu very good value.

However, service was very very slow.... even to getting a glass of wine served??

We repeatedly asked for bill as we had tickets booked and then the waitress asked us to calculate our own bill??

Hi Donna, Thank you so much for your review. We are very happy with the positives! Service was a bit slow for a few diners on Saturday evening as we had far more guests than had booked and were taken a little by surprise. We're very sorry about that.

We have been used to go 28-50 in Maddox street and Marylebone for years as we do love the concept around food and wine variety.
However, now it is not part of the texture group any longer it has completely lost the wine concept.
The food is good but expensive and the wines are just standard (eg you can find them in most other restaurants).
The service was also quite haphazard.
Not sure we would rush back

Emilio and his team were excellent. We were seated away from the front of the restaurant away from the loud music which was perfect. Food was excellent, steaks were particularly good and served as ordered. The Arancini Balls with Truffle, were outstanding. Asked to be given time before mains were served and they got that spot on. Re the Sides, you only need fries for 1 possibly two people if there's four of you as they're plentiful.
Wine list was also excellent especially the Collectors list which has some interesting wines and vintages at respectable prices.
Great Location, restaurant is smartly decked out and service to match.
Would certainly recommend

I have heard about this restaurant from a friend that recently had dinner here and he recommended the place to me. I was here with my girlfriend and we had a really good time. The food was excellent (we had Scallops and Crab salad and for our mains I went for the best fillet steak that I had and my partner had stone bass) and atmosphere was perfect. We were being served by two lovely waiters, Helena and Radu that took care of us the whole evening and made our experience to be excellent.
We recommend this place and for sure we will be back!!
