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.

Sadly a celebration dinner for my new job was ruined by over loud music and an incredible loud diner at another table: staff did nothing to reduce the volume of the music or ask the diner to be quieter. They just brought the bill.

Lovely comfort food. Starters a bit pricey, but mains good value.
Great service on two occasions i’ve been.
Lovey and relaxed - good for a trip into town, or a relaxed business meal.

Limited menu. Overpriced for the portion sizes
And the novelty of having an open kitchen gets old quickly when you have to put up with smell. Our clothes stank at the end of the night.

Been avoiding Foxlow due to very bad (slow/not available) service on last couple of visits but tempted back by BYO Tuesday and glad I did. Service was completely different and attentive, food was excellent (rib starter, sirloin for main (good quality cut and well cooked) and sticky toffee for dessert) and BYO idea is excellent so made for decent value

This is not our first visit to Foxlow Soho. Service was friendly and efficient - the one lady being particularly charming. Thankfully a loud table was just finishing as we arrived so we were spared any annoyance from that, and so the ambience was perfect.
Flat-iron steak ordered all round were excellent - with just one maybe a little over-salted - cooked to our likings. Short list of dessert options all looked great, although they didn't have all available. Sticky toffee pudding was nice but not the best apparently, and the Elvis sundae (with bacon bits) sounded intriguing enough to try but would be an acquired taste!
Overall great and recommended but could have been even better!

Overall the food tastes great but the portions are rather small. Which is kind of OK as the prices are reasonable for Central London. The chicken and waffles were excellent. Ice cream sundaes were tiny. Nothing like the picture on their website. Couldn't really call them a 'sundae'. Two tiny scoops in a glass dish with a teaspoon of topping, not worth £6.50 each.. Nice atmosphere - we were there for Saturday lunch but thankfully it wasn't too busy. As they offer bottomless drink options the waitress said the weekends can sometimes get very hectic and rowdy with groups. Service was friendly and helpful but food did take a while to arrive despite them not being as busy as usual. I can imagine it would have been a very long wait if they were at capacity, but we were in no rush. Very good experience overall. Would go again as the food was excellent. Bit of an 'Instagrammable' venue if you're into that kind of thing.

Not often you find somewhere so reasonably priced in the area! The food was great, range of options for vegetarians and carnivores. Our waitress was extremely friendly with a good sense of humour. I had the ribeye and it was cooked perfectly with bags of flavour.

If anything the food came too quickly (odd flaw), but it made it feel a little rushed at times.

Would definitely recommend and will be coming back for more!

The ribeye steak was superb, however the chips was a bit disappointed because they were too stringy. The bearnaise sauce should have been included with the steak. Mushroom side was fantastic.

Having been to Foxlow Clerkenwell many times (and always had a fantastic meal) the Soho restaurant was really quite disappointing. The 'monthly special' burger dry and tasteless and the other meals no better. Service was surprisingly slow, 25 minutes to catch someone's eye to ask for the bill!
In the interest of balance we had a couple of cocktails which were very nice and well made. But for 3 main meals, 3 cocktails and a bottle of wine - the bill came to over £100 and it was not good value at all.

The menu here is really solid, and the food was very good. There is also a nice selection of beers and cocktails. The décor was quite nice, and it was spacious.

What really elevated this place, though, was the excellent service, just fantastic, friendly staff.

The food was good, but not really in competition with the multiple better venues surrounding it, but the cocktails were poor. Tasted watered down, in very small glasses for the price- better value elsewhere.

We had a great birthday brunch. Food was really good too- only downside is that the 1.5 hour time for your bottomless drinks starts at the time of the booking, not at the time of the order.
