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.

The place looks better than it tastes, doesn’t stand up to its Soho neighbours. Much better restaurants nearer by.

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.

We really enjoyed our evening at Foxlow. It's the second time I've been and we had a great time on both occasions. Gordon, our waiter, was sweet, the food was lovely, and bring your own Tuesdays are awesome!

Delicious rib eye and fries. Very small portion of bearnaise sauce for £2 - should have been free but apart from that, a great meal.

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.

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.

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.

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.
