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.

The food is outstanding. We ate from the pre-theatre menu and the choice was first class. I usually have to go a la carte but not in this restaurant.

Beautiful Ambiance, Excellent Service and the food was amazing. They have a pre- theater menu which my mother enjoyed. I ordered a la carte and was not disappointed. The portions were perfect and the wine delicious. We always loved that it was right across from the Lyceum Theater which made it very easy to get to our show on time.

Enjoyed dinner pre-theater. Excellent tuna tartar and carpaccio. Great service and an excellent helpful staff. Had drinks at the bar prior to dinner and it is a fun place to visit. Fabulous broiled Prawns not to be missed either.

Fantastic food, great location right next to Covent Garden. I asked for a quiet table because my mother is hard of hearing and we pretty much had a private room! Very nice bar for pre-dinner cocktails. Smart but not stuffy, not cheap but reasonably priced and definitely appropriate for a special occasion. Friendly staff and great vibe.

I had the lamb chops which were excellent and my wife had the halibut, which was splendid.
The meal was rounded off with a shared dessert plate, which was a work of Art.

A most enjoyable meal to celebrate (on my own) becoming Vice-Chairman of a Charity. The staff were most kind and attentive, The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Only problem was the stairs which I found difficult which I didn't know about beforehand. I was offered a seat in the bar but as I don't drink and hate the smell of wine didn't accept.

A bumpty start with wrong starter arriving and then olives arriving 10mins after the bread, I am happy to say that the overall experience was fabulous! Food was delicious and hot, and the desserts were to die for! A lovely touch was the firework candle and happy birthday plate. Such a lovely touch. If you haven't been to Christopher's, then you don't know what you're missing! Quick, make a booking now!
