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.

Food selection was not great. So much salt already put on my chops, I’d like to decide that and the platters were also very salty.
Couple of salads in there wouldn’t go amiss.
Ambience was very nice. A bit noisy at times but location and atmosphere was good. I’d recommend for drinks but not food.

Very nice evening and the service and food was great with a great menu for vegetarians and meat/fish lovers alike. Not a massive menu but from chatting to the staff the menu is constantly chnaging and being refreshed with new options that I think is a great idea. Atmosphere was fantastic as well. We were situated outside to start with, but due to the classic english weather the staff happily situated us inside with little fuss when it started p*ssing down.

Will happily recommend and will most certainly be returning!

Lana from Madrid was our waitress!
And what a fab gal she was!
She was very attentive and even loaned her portable charger to our friend. She helped with us choosing dessert and even got a mocktail named after me!
The food is bit pricey but it's delicious . The desserts are amazing too!

A very pleasant lunch venue. Food was excellent and service was attentive. Seating outside was nice and not too close to the road/footpath.

I would have liked to have had a wider choice on the menu, however this may be due to the fact that we are living in post-pandemic times.

I would return to this venue

28-50 has justly become a popular venue for diners and drinkers alike. For me, it was the first time at their Covent Garden restaurant. It was busy, mostly a magnet for young-ish people on a Saturday night, some at least of whom seemed to have had too much to drink already (we were dining at 7:30 or thereabouts). The music was pumped up so much I could hardly hear what was being said by my companion - for me always a minus. As against which, the food and service were impeccable. Indeed you would have to go far to find such quality. So it was a strange evening and hard to assess or describe now - while the food, wine and service could easily have graced somewhere upmarket in the West End, the ambience overall was noisy, boisterous and overwhelming. So hard to assess really. For a quiet evening meal, No. It just seems strange that they put so much effort into providing top quality food and service in such a boisterous atmosphere.
