Originally opened in 1991 in the heart of Covent Garden, Christopher’s has established itself as one of London’s best American restaurants. Comprising of three spaces that recall the heady-glamour of the Modern American era, Christopher’s brings you a Martini Bar on the ground floor, an elegant Dining Room on the first floor and an intimate Club Room on the lower ground floor for private events. Housed in a Grade II listed building with an interesting past of its own, including opening in 1870 as London’s first licensed casino, Christopher's offers an extensive menu of Modern American cuisine. Weekend & Superfood brunch is also a specialty where healthy options are on offer alongside indulgent brunch favourites.

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the excellent location of Christopher's. Being just off Covent Garden, it was very busy on a Saturday evening, especially in the bar area, but the restaurant was calmer and we enjoyed our food and evening. Thank you

If you have something to celebrate than choose Christopher's. Food is good, Service friendly and helpful and competent. Pricey but totally worth it.

I had a bday brunch, the staff was nice and the atmosphere as well. The food was ok but nothing special for what we spend, the quality was fine. I was aspecting a bit more decorations on drinks and food, but it wasn’t too bad. Thanks for the bday candle

We always like to stop here for a Martini if we can, which are excellent, so thought we would try the restaurant and are very glad we did. The food was excellent, and the service was impeccable. My wife won on this occasion on the main course with the slow cooked pork but only just, the lamb was fantastic. Overall a great meal in a tremendous setting

Outstanding service and food. What a beautiful setting. Cocktail bar was amazing restaurant even more so. All staff were so attentive and helpful. Everything we had to eat was exceptional and the steak is probably the best I have ever tasted. I cannot recommend Christopher's highly enough a definite must if you go to London.

Perfect as always. I usually go for brunch with my girl mates and it has always been our favourite place to brunch. My husband decided in this occasion to surprise me for our 1st anniversary and have to admit Christopher’s did not disappoint once again. The lovely Bangladeshi waiter is such a kind polite and diplomatic gentleman, a change from your usual timid waiters you find in other restaurants. He provided with useful advice over the food and I wish listened to him about getting the french toast after we ate our mains - he was certainly right about the ice cream melting! The milk chocolate French toast was absolutely delicious as always 😋


Brilliant everyway!

Hadn’t heard of Christopher’s and stumbled upon it whilst looking on here for somewhere new. At here this evening and very pleased we came. The restaurant itself is stunning with a great vibe. We were lucky as it was relatively quiet owing to an early dinner. We chose from the a la carte menu which was well designed and tailored to every taste. The quality of the food was excellent and fairly priced. Service was very good with friendly and attentive staff. At one point a waiter reached across to clear a glass whilst my partner was eating which was in truth, only a small annoyance. Would highly recommend.

Dessert recommendation...the pecan pie is phenomenal and salted caramel ice cream is to die for.

Thank you to the staff at Christopher's for making my husband's birthday dinner so memorable. The food and the desert plate at the end was really great! We did notice that the portion sizes are relatively smaller than the last time we visited, nevertheless, a great evening meal with friendly, welcoming staff and a beautiful settings. Christopher's never disappoints on that hence why we always come here for special meals.
