It must be 20 years since our last supper here and we were delighted to find nothing had changed. As long as restaurants have silly mark-ups on wine, I won't give any of them five stars on price but Andrew Edmunds’ cosiness and pleasingly low lighting was just what we needed after a hot summer Saturday stroll through a couple of the royal parks.

Really enjoyed our first visit to this old time Soho stalwart. Very good food, short but well judged and competitively priced wine list and friendly, informal service. Would definitely recommend.

Comparatively to somewhere like the French House in Soho, the current incarnation of Andrew Edmunds feels slightly disappointing. Our waitress was lovely, generally up for a bit of banter, and accommodating of our boisterousness. Wine was nice, starters ok, nothing overly special, not bad, but not particularly exciting either. Mains(we all had pork neck) were poorly presented, and mean on portion size. Tasted good, but also, the whole dish was swimming in oil. Although we all like oil, this was too much. One of the table kept splashing oil on his clothes every time he had a mouthful of food, which tells you how tricky this was to eat also. Shared two deserts, both pleasant, chocolate desert quite rich and large for the richness, so definitely would have felt annoyed to order for one person and need to leave half. For a meal for 4, if you’re spending towards £300(which by London standards isn’t outrageous), Quo Vadis, The French House etc seem to do similar cookery, but much better. This was by no means the worst meal we’ve had, but will probably go down as unmemorable. Cute restaurant, but could be so much more special :(

As always, a delicious meal with fantastic service. There were more vegetarian options than usual which was brilliant, however there could be even more (but I’m biased!) my only wish was that the candles could have been lit upstairs as it created a more romantic vibe.

I enjoyed the food, which was plentiful and well prepared and the staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. I thought the wine was expensive (though probably on a par with central London prices). Perhaps they should explore serving cheaper wine in carafes for those who like wine but are not experts or connoisseurs.

Presentation of the food was poor, but the flavours were good.
I had a whole lemon Sole, asked for a fish knife which they did not have.
The pork my wife had for a main course was 75% fat, they did however replace the piece of pork with a chop which was well seasoned.
The staff were apologetic.

Andrew Edmunds is a lovely small restaurant in Soho. Each day the menu is different and handwritten (some teamwork may be required to decipher a word or two), all the tables have fresh bunches of wild flowers and a candle, very romantic setting.

I ordered the Pork with Peperonata. The pork was delicious with crispy crackling but a larger amount of fat that I would have expected... the peperonata was nice enough but didn’t feel like the right accompaniment for the pork... A summer stone fruit tart for dessert which was amazing.

Also note worth was the extensive wine list which was very reasonably priced.

What a gorgeous place! Such a cute restaurant, wonderful atmosphere lovely date spot. Super friendly and helpful waitress (helped me change up my main due to annoying dietary requirement) offered good advice and was generally very sweet. Food was excellent so delicious good portion size (we were starving on arrival and left very happily stuffed). Good wine list too. Would definitely go back!

COD ROE STARTER AND COMPANION ENJOYED THE ATTRACTIVELY PRESENTED OX TONGUE. THE HALIBUT WAS VERY SLIGHTLY OVERCOOKED, BUT DELICIOUS; THE AIOLI DIDN'T SEEM TO HAVE ANY TRACE OF GARLIC. VERY REASONABLY PRICED CHAMPAGNE, POL ROGER EXCELLENT. THE HALF BOTTLE OF FOURNY NOT SO GREAT. EFFICIENT, FRIENDLY SERVICE. WE SAT INSIDE BUT THERE ARE TABLES UNDER A CANOPY OUTSIDE TOO.

My husband's Big Birthday lunch was everything we hoped it would be. Best table by the window, friendly but professional service, great ambiance and outstanding food. Plus an excellent and a very reasonably priced extensive wine list. A dependable delight and a genuine Soho institution.
