Happy little bar/restaurant, hidden away in heart of Soho. Obviously suitable for theatre-goers, but also handy for those wanting a quiet retreat (except pre-show) in such a central area. Good food from a flexible menu. (Pity about the bread, though - can't be that difficult to find proper bread round here, surely?)
It is a lovely restored Art deco theatre. There is space and calm which is rare in Soho on a busy Sunday. The food was good quality and well priced for the location. There was no service as such, the waitresses were many, they had trouble knowing what the dish of the day was and just generally didn't pay attention when we asked for the bill etc. With only a few tables occupied, not impressed, but with the automatic addition of service charge almost everywhere now, service doesn't really exist anymore.
This was a most pleasant experience with very helpful and efficient staff and delicious food. From the bar you could see the very busy streets of Soho from above, but inside felt like a haven of civilisation.
We told the staff several times that we were there for the show but they were very slow in bringing our food so we had to bolt it to get to our seats on time. I very much enjoyed the food and location, and would have liked to be able to eat at a more leisurely pace.
we just had a Veggie burger and a cocktail before the play. Both were delicious and we are determined to return and try more from the menu. Room is an utter delight and service on the night was great if a bit over attentive. Will definitely return and write a fuller review when we have eaten some more!
Excellent new space with fantastic restaurant and bar
We had lunch using a special 'meal deal' in association with the Sunday Service afternoon recital. This provided really terrific value. The food was excellent, the service very good indeed without being obtrusive. When we arrived (first, at a bit before midday) I feared the room was going to be too hot but it improved greatly. The only very slightly negative point would be sound levels. I know it's difficult to get it right, but the hard surfaces amplified the voices of other users to a level that made it a bit heavy. Overall: excellent. Especially if you are offered a deal.
The menu is fabulous and the food exceptional. The staff were friendly and attentive. We found the ambiance comfortable and a sensible level of background music. The whole space has been designed superbly, spacious and comfortable. Will definitely be visiting this venue on a regular basis now.
A great place to meet friends and enjoy a meal. I went for brunch and had a delicious avocado on toast.
