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.

Sonia was fantastic. She made us feel so comfortable and went the extra mile to keep us warm. Sonia found us a table under a heater and attended to all our needs. Thank you so much!

Everything very good. Service a little slow in places, however given the fact it is outside dinning and this is only the third day after lockdown, overall everything went quite well. I would eat there again in the not to distant future.

Kind regards to all the team that looked after us.

Was okay, not all tables have heaters and unfortunately we were one of these tables. Food was tasty but cold when it arrived. Coffees were also cold, which is definitely not what was needed on such a chilly day! Do understand as it was one of the first days reopen, but was quite hectic in terms of service. Seemed like we were an inconvenience being there lol

Brilliant service, as soon as we were greeted we were treated so well. We were slightly late for our booking so were worried if we would still have the table but they seated us temporarily after a few minutes and gave us complimentary prosecco, then after another 15 minutes moved us round to the courtyard. Service with a smile.

Had a most excellent lunch. Food was amazing!

Service was good but a little slow at times as they only had one waitress on and the poor girl was doing her best to cope. She was very polite and professional!

There did seem to be several manager /owners about chatting, perhaps I can suggest that they help out a bit when staff seem up against it! It never hurts for management to roll up their sleeves and meet customers face to face. Just a thought!

A new discovery which could easily become a regular favourite. Friendly without being fussy, a lovely place to linger in. Well judged menu, very good food and a short but carefully chosen wine list.

Ate outside during Covid Tier 2 restrictions. The food was nice but not much choice. Unfortunately it was a miserable day and cold and grey. I would have thought the restaurant would have provided some heaters or throws or a complimentary drink as a welcome/thank you for supporting them during these difficult times particularly as we bought two expensive bottles of wine. It looked very nice inside and we would go back when things are back to normal. There was only one other party outside. The seating was a bit near passers by for my liking - I think it could have been set up better.

The experience was lovely, a great atmosphere and very attentive service.

The only thing that wasn't up to my expectations was the dessert I ordered "Apple and Blackberry crumble" which was cold and probably not even cooked. It was more like a fruit salad with crumble on top.

Apart from that, I would recommend the place and I would visit again myself.

Had a great time dining there! The service was great, relaxed and friendly. The food was really good. Not much option for vegetarians, there was only 1 main of i recall, but it was pretty good!

Had a lovely Hungarian red wine which did not disappoint!
