This restaurant was recommended to us, so we thought we would give it a try on Friday night. the starters were nice. my main course which was pork was very fatty and cold, I sent it back and it came back exactly the same, cold. they apologised but still made us pay for it even though it was fatty and cold. My husbands lamb was very mediocre. the one positive thing to say is the wine is very reasonable and they have an extensive list, but the food lets it down.

I have been coming to Andrew Edmunds for over 30 years and it never disappoints.

I am so pleased to see it up and running again. Last night’s meal was delicious, as always, and the staff were very accommodating of our need to leave early for the theatre.

This did not dissapoint, I suggest going with people who like to share so you can try many things. Especially as the menu changes so often you would want to make sure you get a lot of tasting in as there is a lot of great stuff on the menu.

A lovely restaurant which while not spacious packs character and excellent service into everything it does. There was a good choice for all 3 courses, very good sized portions and it all tasted excellent. All the staff were friendly and professional throughout. Couldn’t fault our evening there and would recommend it.

Hi I brought two guests with me who were both new to London and to Andrew Edmunds. They really enjoyed the food and service though there was a very noisy group near to us who made our conversation difficult. I chose to have mussels as a starter and I'm sorry to say that as a result my stomach was very upset last night which was unfortunate.

This hasn't put me off coming again as your staff and so welcoming and the food generally good- tho I might avoid that particualr dish on my next visit.

Four of us in the end. Beautifully, simply cooked and presented brill and bass; perfect evenly rare thick tranches of roasted sirloin with carrots; delightful smoked eel and pickled cucumber; clams in the right quantity and sauce; treacle tart to die for, and an exact, and modestly proportioned cheese plate. A flawless meal.

Still, after decades, the same Andrew Edmunds, the restaurant that extracts affection in proportions that exceed the bill.

The place is helped in this regard by its famous, extraordinarily well-chosen and very well-priced wine list.

The François Lumpp 2014 white Givry, unfashionably and exquisitely just outside its conventional drinking window, and a sweet Pacherenc called "Brumaire" stood out; the Contino "del Olivo" Rioja was reliably divine. It was a birthday celebration; it wasn't cheap, but it was excellent value.

The staff are charming, and knowledgeable. They stood up to a post-Covid Saturday night with no very visible strain (including handling a large terrasse out on Lexington St, all neatly gone by the time we left).

It always strikes me that Andrew Edmunds is the central London restaurant for grown-up dates; a beautiful, half shabby Georgian building, a comfortable ambience of candled chiaroscuro, buzzy enough for privacy but still able to hear yourself think, a Soho location.

Don't miss it, and do bear in mind you can't book more than a month ahead ...

I haven’t been to this restaurant fir about 15 years, and wanted to treat my husband for his birthday. I could not have asked for a more rewarding experience! Everything about it - the quality and thought in the menu, the knowledge and friendliness of the staff, and the intimate atmosphere - were just as I remembered. We were both able to order dishes we’d never attempt to make at home (smoked ox tongue to start, braised hare to follow) for a really unusual and memorable meal, and thoroughly enjoyed the generous portions. We couldn’t manage a dessert, but has a glass of wine and a coffee each, and even with service this special occasion meal came in at below £90 for the two of us. Although we had a 2-hour timed slot, at no point did we feel rushed. We will definitely be back as often as we can manage it, and my in laws have already taken the details so they can visit too.

First went here in the late 1990s, when it became my favourite restaurant. In 2021, it is still my favourite restaurant. An incredible, connoisseur's wine list, priced at little more than cost plus notional costs of storage over however many years. Not a place for showboats or trend-seekers - it has paper table cloths, candles in wine bottles and hand-written menus, no "development kitchen", no unnecessary, vainglorious, Michelin-seeking foams or absurd flavour pairings; just delicious, well-cooked food, tremendous, wines at customer-kind prices, and friendly, helpful staff. Every time I have been, I have felt a glow of genuine happiness and at peace with the world. I write this reluctantly, because the rule amongst afficianados used to be that one should tell only one other person about the restaurant, so as to keep it to ourselves. The restaurant is, after all, cosily small and could easily be over-run with diners chasing the zeitgeist. The impact of the pandemic has made such considerations appear selfish, and so I now write as I do. This is a fantastic restaurant, with an outstanding ambience and incredibly priced, excellently selected and stored wines. Et voila.

Absolutely faultless- great menu and wine list. Charming service and a lovely restaurant. I had Dover Sole which was fantastic - sweet and perfectly cooked. Downstairs is a nice space - very atmospheric - but the ground floor is great for lunch. I have not been for 20 years and I will now be a regular. I really cannot recommend it enough.

Romantic place, candles on bottles, very cosy with traditional food with a friendly staff. Wine list is one of the best in London, got a beautiful old vintage Burgundy for 120£ Half lobster for 14£.
The gnocchi sauce was too salty but overall we spent a great moment. Thank you team !!!
