Modern European

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.

Great food and service. Music wasn’t to our taste and quite loud, however we are old duffers!
Value was excellent thanks to the 50% food discount. Without that I’d probably say it’s quite pricey.
Definitely recommend

We had a lovely seafood and wine meal. The service was incredible and we were pleased with the social distance and Covid measures in place. We will be returning as they are running incredible offers at the moment which means more can go to the lovely wines!

Really nice lunch - covid rules in place but without being overbearing. Food excellent 50% off all food - my ribeye steak was huge and lovely. My partner had prawns which were equally great. Service perfect. An opportunity to have top meal at half price. Covent Garden on the outside was dead on thurs lunch but restaurants inside had nice smattering of people which made it just right. Once covid is over all the tourists will be back and it will be back to overwhelming so if u look at it the right way then this is an amazing opportunity.

Really great food, and incredible value - with the 50% off I was really surprised at the quality of dishes, far more high-end than you'd expect for the price and central London location. All of our party of four enjoyed every single dish of the set 3-course menu! Would definitely go back. Wine was good too.

We went on a rainy day and so they changed our outside reservation to indoors. The decor is very cosy and cute however felt a little feminine with the colour scheme. The service was really good, however the value for money for the meal was a little higher for a basic burger and fries. The dessert was good but not outstanding either. Would recommend for a chill lunch, however given the 'smart casual' dress code, it was a little below expectations.

Having dined at, and been extremely disappointed, with a meal at The Ivy the previous day it was a delight to eat here. The restaurant was offering a fantastic 50% off deal, so I had a 12 oz fillet steak for half it's normal price, which was exceptional value! The staff were very friendly & helpful and the restaurant was sensibly spaced and had a nice ambience. All in all a very positive experience. Highly recommended.

The customer service was very good. Lovely waitresses who were very attentive and friendly. Being an upmarket high street restaurant, the prices were about £25-40 for a main course. But the eat out to help out in September meant that the prices were 50% on all food. We had a main dish each and an alcoholic drink, and paid £20 each including service tip.

My burger was good quality meat and brioche bun, however I found the overall flavour very tasteless. It seemed very bready with not many layers inside of the burger apart from the beef. The lamb of shoulder was very nicely presented, but the actual cut of meat was on the small side to fill up an adult.

The complimentary bread was a nice touch! Overall a lovely restaurant, with stylish interior and great location. Perhaps I just ordered the wrong main course...

The food was lovely, the wine was incredible but I must thank the staff overall for such an amazing service while dining for my younger sisters birthday! They made it so special for her and they were all so great to us. I cannot speak more highly of all of the staff. Will definitely be visiting again!

We tried 28-50 Covent Garden with their 50% off food offer with no restrictions so we got to try a few dishes and our party of 4 enjoyed everything we ordered. The oysters were large, grilled prawns were tasty, loved the crab salad and salmon as well. One friend had the steak and it was cooked to perfection as she liked it.
Big thanks to Sonia who was super friendly and helpful with recommendations and she was such a delight and made our night even more special. Her lovely smile and friendly face more than made up for the 10pm closing time as she was so apologetic about despite it was not her or the restaurant's fault as it was the government's new rules with big fine imposed on the restaurant. Highly recommended and wish we have Sonia as our waitress again when we go back next time. Thank YOU Sonia.

This was my first time visiting 28-50.

I was very impressed by the staff - very professional, warm and welcoming. We were not rushed in the slightest, the restaurant was busy but the measures they had in place and the spacing of tables it felt safe.

The food was excellent and with the 50% off deal they were offering was outstanding value.

Highly reccommend.

They were unable to handle any dietary requirements, suggesting all food is pre prepared.
They were rude and generally unhelpful.
I really wouldn’t recommend, there are far nicer restaurants in this area.

Responded on 25 September 2020

Hi. Probably our worst ever review!! Our meals are prepared from scratch on the premises, and our staff should ask about dietary requirements on ordering. It seems that something didn't go right. Very peculiar that we were unable to accommodate your request. Things do go wrong occasionally, but it is highly unusual to hear of rude staff. We will investigate. I am hoping it was a mask issue which can make communication clumsy. If it wasn't a mask thing, heads will roll - with or without masks!
