Browns - London Victoria
Met a friend for a catch up on Saturday at Browns in Victoria Cardinal Place. Food and service were great. The restaurant was very quiet and not very full. We had a lovely couple of hours chatting and eating. I have been here before many times and will definitely return.
Great place to grab a bit before going to the theatre. Need to book otherwise it’s challenging to get a table, but the train there were very attentive.
Regular meeting over breakfast - works well - staff know the team now and serve them promptly. All good!
Nice table and view, theatre supper menu.
Food was average. Steak well cooked, garnish could have been dressed, desert disappointing, strange taste to apple and crumble not really cooked.
Ok meal nothing really poor or outstanding.
Conveniently situated. It was half term so I expected the restaurant to be busy, which it was, but the service was quick and efficient and the three children I was entertaining thoroughly enjoyed the occasion. Food was tasty and well cooked. Browns burgers went down very well!
Really good service and the food was very good quality too. Definitely going to return and spread the word!
Networking lunch was really successful in this restaurant. Thanks Browns!
Regular booking for team breakfast every month - no issues
Great service nice ambience and not overpriced! Good food too. The waiter who served us was extremely nice, polite, and made our night superb. I wish I remembered his name. He's from Greece.
Booked for business breakfast = specifically asked for upstairs for privacy - no issues
Multiple menu items unavailable supposedly because the restaurant was much busier than they had planned. All in all not a very pleasant experience.
Service was very slow, 2 courses took 2 hours to be served up.
Despite it obviously being prime Christmas party time there were not enough staff, either in the kitchen or waiting, to deliver food or even drinks in a reasonable timescale.
The food that was served was dried out from spending too long under the heat lamps and lacking elements of what was ordered.
The restaurant is noisy because of the acoustics. It is all of a good standard.
When we got to the venue, having booked and confirmed the booking through Open Table, the venue did not have the details of the booking. However the professional service of the team accommodated my booking with little disruption.
Lovely in every way
The restaurant was freezing inside!
Though very busy the service was excellent, let down only by the slight delay on our mains. The meals were very good. Great pretheatre menu.
We had brunch booked for my dads birthday. The place was empty for quite a while which was fine but as it’s so large there was no atmosphere.
They god our order wrong a few times too. The real disappointment was the pancakes. They are hot pancakes done with creme fraiche. But by the time they got to the table they were stone cold. For a London restaurant I was also surprised that they didn’t have almond or oat milk.
All in all I won’t be rushing back. Shame as great location and size for dinner.
Reastaurant reasonably busy but lots of serving staff but ridiculous tome to get main course after starter . Nearly missed theatre visit
I use Browns as a good place to meet up with family near Victoria as it’s half way. They always accommodate my son who enjoys flirting with the waiting staff (he is 1), staff are attentive and the food always good.
Made a booking in advance but had not table for us in the main restaurant area so we sat downstairs. there was not enough staff so took us over 30 mins to order drinks and food. We were going to the theatre and explained that we need a quick turnaround but our food then took 40 mins to arrive. Just not enough staff at busy times.
Nice atmosphere, no fuss food and drink at a reasonable price for central London.
Very convenient place if you're having a quick catch up, our server was amazing and very attentive! We had the vegetable pot pie which looked most adorable with a tiny carrot sticking out of the top. The fish pie was however a bit too greasy and fishy, would be nicer to have some acidity to balance it out. Overall a good experience for my friends and I and we'd definitely come back. The only other minor detail to note was a wobbly table, but nothing a piece of paper couldn't fix!
Great for a meal before the theatre
Our waitress was very efficient and helped us place our order quickly
The restaurant is set in Victoria, hidden away from easy sight. It was a bright, airy space.
The staff that received us were polite, courteous & efficient.
The waitress was a long time arriving to take our drinks order and even longer to take our meal orders. The service of just 1 starter took over 30 minutes to arrive at the table. We then waited a further 45 minutes for our main courses to arrive.
We were also not asked if we needed any further drinks, even tea/coffee at the end of the meal.
This was when the restaurant was not busy in any way shape or form so I dread to think what the service would be like when the space is full.
Very good food but for the second time, sluggish and inattentive service. Got overcharged on the bill too.
Slow service and they got the order wrong. But tasty food.
Second time here. Staff are friendly and efficient. Not the cheapest place but food is very good modern British cuisine. Upscale without being pretentious. It is a noisy brasserie atmosphere but for lunch works well.
It was nice to be on the first floor with big windows looking down at passers by but was very noisy as there were no partitions. Disappointed the chicken dish was not available from the pre theatre menu. Good to have a voucher for a free drink after signing up to the newsletter but disappointed my two friends were not allowed to use theirs as well even though they subscribed separately. We were told only one voucher per table even if we were to have separate bills and pay separately they could still not be used. This seems unreasonable.
Went to Browns in Victoria for a catch up with a friend. I had been here before and the food and service were excellent as usual. I had mentioned on the booking in the comments that I had an Opentable dining cheque, not realising that I was unable to use it at this restaurant. The manager was very kind and gave us a discount on our bill anyway, as I was only told about the cheque when I got to the restaurant. I will definitely go back as the restaurant, staff and food are great.
We had a table of 15 exhausted volunteers after an all-day charity event. The team at Brown’s, headed by our server, Gabrielle, were fabulous. The cocktails were tasty, the food, delicious, and the service was spot on!
Tables too small for the food and drinks served.
Two of us had a Pre-Theatre meal on a Thursday evening. Nice to see a busy bar at 6pm and plenty of people in first floor restaurant
Browns is a safe reliable booking, good food, reasonably prices and with attentive service that is not intrusive. The restaurants are a great setting for informal catch ups, and is my go to place if I want to be assured of good quality fare and a comfortable atmosphere to have a long leisurely meal without fuss.
Nice set menu, great value and food was really good. Smoothies not offered after 12pm. Found service was quite slow to take orders etc but could be personal preference. Otherwise lovely
This is the first time we dined at Browns in Victoria, the restaurant was nice laid out and had good ambience. There was a good range of food at reasonable prices. The service was good and the food quality was good. Overall it was good value for money
Excellent food and service. Lots of choice and nice tables and space. Quite pricey though and I am not sure about value for money.
Overpriced water no prices on menu for beers ciders or tea! No local beers offered. No prices on on line menu
