The Hippodrome casino and the Heliot restaurant look quite dated now. You don't get the wow factor when you enter the venue. The steak I had was great but the vegetables were not very hot. The meal I felt was overpriced

Booked for pre meal before Magic Mike Live. We opted out of the pre set menu as we fancied something else. Fillet steak was melt in the mouth and full of flavour. Atmosphere was fantastic and service was friendly and attentive.

My friend and I had a wonderful dining experience on the 13.4.19 before going to see Magic Mike.
The food was exceptional as was the service. Every person that we came in to contact with was helpful and happy and eager to please.
Couldn’t have asked for a better service.
If we come to London again then we would definitely dine with yourselves without a doubt.
Thank you all

Food is excellent, price is decent but the fact it's in a casino is a downer. Music is very loud and it has little to no intimacy.

We booked a table for seven to celebrate our son's birthday and from start to finish we had a lovely time. We were taken straight to our table on time. Our water was brilliant throughout. I wish I could remember his name. Five of the party had the 'special offer' of steak and lobster and reported that it was excellent and believe me they know their steak. The only little niggle was that there really wasn't much for the vegan in our party. I know it is a steak house but with more people being vegan there should be an option especially as I had mentioned it on booking.
The bill came to £325 which really wasn't extortionate for London especially as we also had two bottles of red wine, a few beers, a coffee and 12.5% service. Definitely worth a visit and we will be back.

This was our second visit , and again we were not disappointed. The service is great the staff are attentive and polite, we went with two friends and they both commented how good the steaks were, this coupled with a very reasonable bill defiantly makes it a go to venue for great food in central London.

Things started badly, with the host to seat me until my companion arrived, despite my assurances she would only be a few minutes late and the restaurant not being busy then or later.

The food and service during the meal made up for this, however. We both opted for the steak and lobster special offer, as booked. The rump steak, ordered medium rare, was excellent—deliciously flavoured, pleasingly but not excessively charred on the outside, and tender and juicy on the inside. This was the first time I've eaten lobster tail, but I enjoyed the subtle flavour. The only letdown was a side order of green beans that was rather overcooked for my taste—really these should be only just barely past still being crunchy.

There was a mix-up about dessert: I'd seen multiple suggestions that the special offer included chocolate brownie, but we were offered key lime pie. It transpires there are two slightly different bubbly,-steak,-lobster-and-dessert special offers, and apparently the brownie is for those who have booked for dinner and the theatre. I preferred the pie anyway, and our server kindly substituted the brownie for my companion's dessert. Both went down a treat.

With the unique ambiance of dining on a theatre balcony, the experience overall was good but not outstanding, and fair but not excellent value for money.

The Heliot Steakhouse is inside the Hippodrome which is easy to find as it’s just off Leicester Square.
We received a very warm welcome from the security guys who let us in once I convinced them I was over 18 and only coz I had the wrinkles to prove it 🤣 we arrived 20 minutes early so went to the bar for a drink, the barman was very helpful too as one member of our party was a fussy drinker when choosing her favourite tipple. Our booking was for four ladies at 8pm, I say ladies because others would beg to differ 🤣 & the MM show was at 10pm. We we’re shown to our table by very polite & friendly staff including our waitress.
We had the ‘Magic Mike’ set menu & for £20 it was just WOW. We had steak, lobster tails, champagne & a dessert, all four steaks were cooked differently & to everyone’s liking, they cut like butter, the food was served hot & was delicious.
We had a great view overlooking the gaming tables as the restaurant is built on tiers a-bit like theatre balconies, we soaked up the atmosphere whilst dining. We were very lucky to meet the owner Jimmy Thomas who was sat at the table next to us, a very lovely down to earth gentleman.
As two from our party smoked/vaped & thought they would have to go outside to smoke, we’re pleasantly surprised to find a little den on the third floor where there was another bar & more gaming tables, they were so excited about this that they dragged the rest of us up to view it.we went a long windy corridors & up a few flights of stairs, I was exhausted once I got there as my bungalow legs were like jelly. 🤣
It was very easy to access the MM show which was via a door on the same floor level as our table.
I WOULD 100% recommend this place & will definitely head back when next in London.

We had the pre-show $20 deal of steak and lobster tail and it was absolutely delish, with the steaks cooked to perfection! We mentioned to the waitress that it was a treat for our up and coming 50th birthdays, and for the dessert she arranged a candle and Happy 50th Birthday written in chocolate - we were really surprised and positively taken back by that gesture. Thank you - we didn't catch her name, but she was super-friendly and had long braided brown hair.
