Originally opened in 1991 in the heart of Covent Garden, Christopher’s has established itself as one of London’s best American restaurants, featured in Condé Nast Traveller, GQ, Tatler & Harper's Bazaar to name but a few. 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, a glamorous Restaurant 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 all day dining menu of Modern American cuisine. Weekend Brunch is also a specialty where healthy options are on offer alongside indulgent brunch favourites, including our signature french toast.

    After reading positive reviews I decided to try Christopher's. And I am very sad to say it was the apposite of what I read. The service was gloomy, after taking our order everyone disappeared and when they brought the food they didn't make sure that the table was clear they just put the plates on a menu that was on the table. The food was tasteless below expectations, for that it's value for service and food is to high. I really hope that this is not the norm and maybe on a next visit I will say something else, but for now I see the money and time spent was a waste.

    We love coming to Christopher's for a celebration brunch, as staff are very attentive and take good care of diners. We never feel rushed, and it is never so loud that we find ourselves shouting over our food to each other. The food is alway the star of the show, and never disappoints - a real treat!

    We liked the food and the ambience. The steaks were cooked just as we asked for, a rarity (excuse pun) today. The service was friendly and the view onto Waterloo Bridge is priceless.

    I had a good time with my friend. The food was nice and the overall feel was pleasant and relaxing, however given the price of the food we payed we expected more attentive and friendly service which we didn't get.

    The table allocated was a bit small, we felt shoved in the corner. The waiters and waitresses were lovely and attentive. The food however was a bit on the small size for the price.

    Great location, some of the staff very helpful/approachable, some were more robotic. Lobster Mac and cheese was nice but felt was quite expensive compared to other lobster Mac and cheese we’ve had elsewhere. Wagyu burger was ok but not excellent. Egg was underdone on the Eggs Benedict and wasn’t expecting parmaham. This didn’t really work as well as normal ham in my opinion. Brioche chocolate French toast was amazing and best thing we ordered. Wish we’d ordered more of them.

    I went to celebrate my birthday. I had seen on social media that the Brioche french toast was amazing. It was I had Beef tacos for my main with truffle fries, the portion was the size of small McDonalds portion!! Extremely disappointing especially for £8 The dessert won the night, next time I will just start with Dessert

    Really disappointed with my recent visit, I brought guests from different cities and I visit quite regularly. I am embarrassed that this is where I chose to take them. The food was below standard and the staff were preoccupied gossiping in the corner, the bar manager was also involved in this. Not what I expect from Christopher’s at all. I requested the service charge to be taken off and received a terrible response from the staff and was made to feel uncomfortable, we could visibly see they were discussing and laughing about it. Nobody bothered to come over to ask why we weren’t happy with our experience. Staff need to be trained better and need to communicate attentively, also a smile wouldn’t hurt. If they aren’t happy to be there, they should not be working there. I complained to the gentleman at the front desk who listened patiently but I wasn’t sure how seriously the complaint would be taken.

    Overpriced, flavourless food. The biggest offender was the lobster mac n cheese. Closely followed by the buttermilk chicken sandwich and fried chicken and waffles. The only thing I’d recommend is the brioche French toast. Everything else was not up to scratch!

    The food is here all prepared and cooked very well. We had steak and eggs with Parmesan chips, creamed spinach and has browns. The steak and eggs were really expensive for £32 and the steak was tiny but was very good quality. The chips were very good as was the gas brown. The creamed spinach was disappointing, didn’t taste any cream in it. All in all good good quality and well cooked but the price tag for this restaurant is just far too high. Nice place, just a bit pricey.

    The food was overpriced and wasn't that spectacular, in particular my choice of salmon jambalaya, no flavour and very small portion of rice, although my husband's steak was tasty enough. The lighting was very dim so couldnt see that service charge added to bill so ended up leaving another 10% on table in cash. Went to celebrate my birthday, came out very disappointed.
