Foxlow has taken over the ground floor and basement of a former office building just off Golden Square at 8-10 Lower James Street, W1F 9EL.
The lively interior and atmosphere reflects the location, whilst also retaining the familiarity of the trusted, comfortable local – perfect for everything from fun dinners with friends and family gatherings, to a leisurely brunch armed with the weekend papers.
In addition to lunch and dinner, Foxlow Soho will open daily for brunch, which will include the famous Fried chicken, egg & croissant waffle. Theatregoers and value-seekers will love the set menu and on Tuesday nights (as with all Foxlow restaurants) customers will be able to bring their own wine, corkage free. Weekend brunching will take place from 10am – 3pm with several new brunch cocktails alongside bottomless Bloody Marys. And Sundays at Foxlow are well known for roasts, either Beef with all the trimmings or the new Chicken pot roast.

AMAZING CHICKEN ROAST

Beer selection is also surprisingly unique and varied. Not vast quantities but quality choices.

Outstanding top notch service for a birthday dinner I threw for a friend. Minimalist decor and still very trendy.
Good value for money and excellent cocktail! I’m very pleased.

Great venue, not too much on the menu that you take ages to decide. They had a great offer of burger, fries and cocktail for £15. Recommend this venue!

Dependable if you want something quick and not that exciting - ok if you just want to grab something before a show / film and don’t want to risk the wait at the (much better) walk in places in Soho

Really good food and drink. It's an offshoot of hawksmoor so it's perfect if you are in a group and some people want a fantastic steak and others want a lighter option.

Attentive, welcoming and friendly.. lovely customer service...
Good menu.. great cocktails. Good and surprising wine list..
(Normally great food.. kitchen messed up my order this time and food was taken off bill without question.. )
Downstairs is best for a quieter, conversation friendly meal.. and you get to see the kitchen in action..

I have been to Foxlow many times, to both Clerkenwell and Soho.
In both the staff have always been so accommodating and friendly!

I have been to Soho more, as a group booking of 10 for brunch, with my gluten-free sister, and I myself am vegan.

Menu is always great and updated with good specials. Happy hour is a steal, and there is even B.Y.O on a Tuesday.

The food is to die for and it is great value!

That’s why I keep going back with different groups just so that everyone can have a try. :)

The food was really awful and I felt pretty terrible too after eating cheaply made burgers and chips. I think Burger King would be better. The atmosphere is not great either.
The service was great. So such a pity.

I loved the atmosphere – relaxed style and buzzy. We would certainly return for another visit. The steak was a particular highlight, and the other dishes were great too. Service was friendly and wines were reasonable value and a good selection available in carafes.

Had a really nice lunch at Foxlow Soho on a Monday afternoon. The restaurant was quite quiet at this time (have seen it a lot busier at lunchtime) - service was great and the food was simple but very tasty. Would recommend the mac and cheese!

We had brunch on Sunday and were a table of 8.
Our initial waitress who greeted us and first took our order was excellent, attentive and friendly.
Sadly once she got busy, service was slack, as the other waiting staff were less bothered.
My son ordered waffles, and one very small waffle came out, when I asked if it should have two for the price of £9, I was just told no.
We then ordered a vegetarian breakfast for him, which came out quickly and was mostly delicious, however it came out with fried eggs that were barely cooked. I asked another waitress if she could send them back and she asked if we wanted them well done, when I answered, cooked would be nice, she said okay okay in a time that told me to shut up.
The rest of the table enjoyed their food immensely and the coffee and drinks are good.
Overall although disappointed with some of the service, we would recommend it for the food.

Foxlow Soho is a bright looking restaurant, with a quirky cinema style sign above the bar that seemed to serve as Instagram inspo for a few of the diners. It is conveniently located near the Piccadilly station but away from the touristy places. Their happy hour ran until 7pm with a selection of £5 cocktails which was decent value. Other than that, I would not recommend this restaurant. The menu was extremely basic. I am generally a fan of simplicity if the few things on the menu are exceptional. This wasn't the case. Everyone's dish, apart from the vegetarian main, was bland and foregttable. The dishes were totally unimaginative - a burger, a steak, fried chicken...Notwithstanding it was a Monday night so pretty quiet, the restaurant still seemed to lack atmosphere. My Chinese friend who was visiting, had requested we go to a "British" restaurant, hence why I decided to give Foxlow a go. It fell dismally short of impressing and ended up being a disappointing experience. Avoid.

Great location in the middle of soho with a great, airy, spacious layout. The staff were attentive and friendly and the Tuesday special offer of a burger and fries with a cocktail for £15 was awesome.

If I had one criticism, the burger was a bit overdone - I only mention it because the emphasis on the promotion of this place was it being part of the Hawksmoor brand, synonymous with great steaks etc.

Met a friend for brunch. We both had the fried chicken and croissant waffle - a bit different from the norm and very tasty. Ambiance and service was nice. Laid back. Friendly but not in your face and not snooty, which can def be a problem elsewhere in Soho. Tip - don't; fall for the bottomless coffee offer as the filter coffee is a bit grim. Get a proper coffee (my friend's cappuccino was good :)

This was our third trip to Foxlow Soho and was the best yet. Starters were excellent (meatballs a highlight) and the mains (steak especially) were also superb.

Service was also great - attentive without being fussy, and quick without rushing. Top marks all round

Had a lovely meal at Foxlow, was BYOB on a Tuesday, servers couldn’t have been more friendly and attentive, and brought a free slice of cake out on the house for my parents as we’d mention it was their anniversary. Would definitely recommend

Second visit to Foxlow after we enjoyed it so much the first time.
Lovely warm and relaxed atmosphere, fantastic food and brilliant cocktails.
Very reasonable prices for the quality of food and drinks.
Spent about 4 hours in here on a busy Friday night and didn’t feel rushed along in the slightest.
Looking forward to the next visit.

Been a couple of times and always impressed by the lovely atmosphere, superb service and delicious fresh food. Cocktails are a bit tiny but for £5 during happy 2hr it's a good way to try things. Would definitely recommend for a dinner where you can actually talk to each other without shouting!

Great staff and service. Very quiet so ambience a bit too laid back for my mid to late teens. Rest of West End London was heaving so sort of wonderful to find a peaceful, air conditioned space but shame not more customers to give it a buzz. Food again great and tasty, good value.

This was my second visit to Foxlow. I enjoyed it once again although we were accidentally overcharged for our desserts. It would have been great for them just to take the dessert off the bill rather than quibble over the exact pounds and pence they owed us, but overall it won't stop me going back!

Went in for a birthday and I think had higher expectations from the previous reviews for the food. Venue was nice, stylish and good for socialising for lunch maybe however we were sat downataira which was okay but right next to the messy open view kitchen. The food wasn't great...steak was chewy, unseasoned and bland...I left half on my plate. Bearnaise sauce cold/lukewarm and thick, fries and salad average. The small portions (3 tiny meatballs for £8.00) of the starters were overpriced, as was the salmon and squid. Would of preferred to go to Flat Iron as steaks better., or spend £120 at Gaucho. For a birthday it wasn't anything special and unlikely to go back again.
