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 Julian 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 connoisseur's 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.

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

Really lovely lunch experience. A very welcoming team right from the start to the end, didn't feel rushed at all, a thoroughly enjoyable meal. The food was delicious (I would really recommend the scallops and the lemon posset dessert). Good wine suggestions too. Looking forward to coming back.

Thank you for your review. We had one other less-than-average review from last Saturday night so we will look into it immediately. The same head chef oversees our two establishments and our quality checkers have not indicated a decline in standards. You, our guests are of course, the true checkers of quality, and we we will look into Saturday's service immediately. Yasmin.

Outstanding place! Exceptional service with extremely knowledgable and attentive waiters, specially our patience and friendly server Alegra that took great care of us in our little celebration. We enjoyed every dish- the flavours were fresh, original and not over-complicated. First class cooking. Specially the Burrata and the beautifully cooked butternut squash were our stand-out dishes but it was all fantastic! Definitely coming back.

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!!

Je dis bravo! Beautiful setting warm atmosphere with stunning interior. The service by super-knowledgeable and efficient staff. Superb food that made feel like home enjoying a delicious Confit canard and a super tasty lemon posset.
Highly recommended, the right mix of casual and smart to make you feel like you were really out for the night. Merci Helen and Rado

Had afternoon lunch for Christmas get together with friends. The ala carte menu came with a free bottle of wine which was decent. Lovely ambience and decor but service was mediocre. The waiters forget to refill wine glasses and water and I had to ask for a jug of water for the table 3 times before I got one.
Food was OK - comes across more pre-theatrish vs actual decent mains.
Great location for meet ups nonetheless.

Thank you for your review. We're very upset about the waiters/service comments (not upset with you - but with ourselves!). We can fix that and will. We will also look at the food-being-ok question. We're a little surprised as the menu is a larger version of our current Marylebone menu which is very popular. Once again, thank you for your review, and I hope we will better please you should you come again. Yasmin.

First visit. Excellent food, wine & service, could not fault it. Just disappointed that the service charge was just that and not a tip. Happy to have it taken off the bill and leave a ‘tip’. Second London restaurant in two days where the service charge makes up the staff wages. Restaurant staff in London deserve a London living wage.

The food on Christmas day was fine but for 65 pounds I was expecting much more. The wine we ordered with the food came with the dessert so we had to drink water with the starter and main. Overall bad experience.

I went to this restaurant with a friend for the Christmas set menu. We both enjoyed the food and the food came out at a reasonable time considering the restaurant was quite busy. The service was okay although the server did forget to give us the food menus 20 minutes after we were seated.

The staff was excellent. Friendly, personable, and attentive. We were a party of 5 for a pre-set Christmas dinner menu. The food quality was not there and the £67.50 price point was high for the quantity and quality of the food received. The atmosphere and the serving staff were lovely though.

Had the prix fixe menu for Christmas Day so it was very limited. All of the main courses were delicious, but some of our party did not care for the appetizer or the dessert. Champagne greeting was nice. Service meh just like most of Europe.

Nel complesso BUONO, ma il conto troppo alto rispetto a quanto abbiamo mangiato. A persona: un antipasto, un secondo, un dolce, un calice di vino rosso 125ml pinot nero argentino, un caffè. TOTALE per 2 persone £ 174,00.

Service was fab! But staters were unimpressive and the medium rare steak was cooked almost well done. Stone bass (with mussels) was very stingy-sharp sauce.

What a lovely lunch spot! We enjoyed the set Lunch menu - £21 for 3 courses very good value and good size portions. I chose the Mushroom soup, beautifully poured our waitress then had the Fish Pie and finished off with the yummy apple crumble. Crumble was certainly my favourite part!

I loved it that we only went in for a coffee but were given the same amount of brilliant service as if we had dined in there.
The chairs and ambience was very good and the service was quality.

We had a very enjoyable meet up with friends for a Saturday Lunch. The service was attentive and the ambience was very nice. The food ( the special weekend menus with a glass of champagne ) was very good value. The only issue was that the Fish Pie was a little too much potato and not enough fish. Otherwise all was excellent and we have recommended the location to friends.

Rather disappointing if I'm honest and the music was a tad too loud. I had the set menu (which I had to ask for because I knew there was one) and the main course of chicken breast was rather bland. Starters were alright but the signature dessert was unimaginative.

Ok, we waited an hour and twenty for a starter to appear and that was after we had to complain. The restaurant was lacking staff, waitresses having to serve drinks as well as wait on tables. Food would appear on trays and be left, until table staff were free to serve it. Trays of dirty glasses stacked around the rear bar area. The food was actually good, once it arrived! This place has the makings to be a very good restaurant, having only been opened a month or so, it still has some issues to work on!! We were seated in the rear area in a lovely booth with a large table. Please guys sharpen up the little points and I’ll be back....
