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.

Very good food, as always. Excellent quiet unobtrusive service. Certainly not cheap, but then one would not expect cheap in this type of of establishment.

As a person who studied tourism and worked in 5-star hotel I can tell you that the service was excellent,all staff including the receptionist were kind and presentable. They made me happy at the end with little surprise for my birthday 🎁 which was on them. Most of the fine-dining restaurants never give you something if you don’t pay even if it a special occasion. Christhopher’s is not one of them. This was the first time I’ve been there but definitely I’ll come back.

We like the restaurant very much but the pricing on Nero d’Avalo is rather excessive.

Celebrated husbands 40th, amazing food, thought salmon not as good as husbands steak and lobster. Worth going for the cheesy mash and steak mushroom sides!

A perfect venue for pre theatre pit stop.
Enjoyed a lovely cocktail in the bar and a super 3 course meal upstairs.
Very attentive waiting staff. (Not pushy though!)
We have already told friends about Christopher’s as it will be a very convenient place to meet before our trips to West End theatres. VB

We went to celebrate my husband’s birthday and had a really enjoyable experience. The lady who served us was very good, remembering one us was vegan, and the birthday firework was a lovely unexpected touch! Only down side, two of the guests were a surprise and when my husband and I arrived the lady at the confirmed the others had already arrived.

Visited on recommendation from the Lyceum Theatre before watching the Lion King and was not disappointed. The food was delicious and really enjoyed the visit. The location and decor of the venue was spot on. The only criticism is the length of time it took for us to get a bill to leave with tables either side of us being serviced first even though we were clearly finished with our meals.

I went to Christophers over the weekend. The food was amazing- We got the plain french toast and chocolate french toast(AMAZING!) and pancakes! We also got the chocolate and also the honeycomb milkshake.. both were amazing! I will be going back very soon to try the mac n cheese that I've heard loads about! The staff were all amazing too, very friendly and the whole restaurant looked amazing :)!

It was a lovely dining experience. The decor and ambiance was wonderful, calm and quiet. It is such a pleasure to go to a restaurant and be able to have a quiet conversation and feel a sense of intimacy. The service was attentive, courteous and unobtrusive. The food was very, very good and the portions were perfect. This is our new favourite restaurant when going to the theatre.

Overall we would not go back to Christopher’s. This area of London has so many great places to compare too:
- The service was mixed, good front of house but table service loud and inattentive
- Food, we think mean to charge 1) extra for sides when ordering a main and 2) expensive for bread. Also not remarkable in flavour.
- Ambience is great, liked the Art Deco feel. However not sure about the music (a bit thumps), why not play Great American Songbook?

The menu is what brought me to Christopher’s but it exceeded my expectation. I had Surf ‘n’ turf and it was so lush! Everything on my plate was cooked to perfection. I honestly can not complain about anything that I experienced. From food to service to ambiance was lovely.

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
