My wife and I made a reservation for the pre-theatre menu and we were not disappointed. The 3 courses were excellent as was the wine. I also had a perfect Irish Coffee at the end. The service was very good throughout. We would definitely go again.

Once again, Christopher's did not let me down. I had the japanese wagyu steak and it was cooked to perfection. The mac abd cheese was to die for. But the dessert was the str of the show, choolate bbbrioche french toast. It was even better than I had imagined it to be. Their service, as always, has been impeccable and I look forward to visiting again soon.

There is only once you can gain a first impression of a restaurant, and this one gets 5 stars from us.
We chose from the theatre menu and was a great way to start the evening before the show.
We will certainly be back before our next theatre visit.

Came here for a pre-theatre meal and it was great food - as per usual.
They've had the same chef for many years and he's excellent!
Consistently good. Highly recommended.

Central location with excellent food & drinks. Steaks were cooked exactly as we requested. Weren’t rushed and appreciated the Happy Birthday sparkler with our dessert. Round table in the middle of the restaurant ideal for larger parties.

Fell in love with the place as soon as I walked through the door. The impressive winding staircase to the restaurant on the first floor was lit by a candle on every step. The service was second to non, the waiting staff were very knowledgeable and attentive. The food was cooked to perfection. There was a good choice of gluten free options. A perfect place for a pre/post theatre meal.

The brunch was great. Food was delicious although the portion size was smaller than expected. The service was also excellent. We chose a busy time so we were asked to leave promptly at 2 hours. I would recommend this place for brunch and will definitely go back to try something else on the menu.
