J Sheekey Atlantic Bar
Open daily from midday until late, food is seasonal, delicious and affordable.
Appealing to seafood enthusiasts, but neglecting no-one, the menu offers small sharing plates of fish, shellfish, salads and game, not to mention with the very theatrical Plateau de Fruits de Mer.
The team is passionate and knowledgeable, serving from an open kitchen as and when the dishes are cooked.
Please note that tables are subject to a time restriction. Tables that are booked from 5.15pm to 5.45pm are available through to 7.15pm.
Sunday: 12 noon-10.30pm
Thoroughly excellent meal, looking forward to next visit.
Wonderful spot for late post- theatre meal. Sat at the bar and had a great selection of seafood and drinks . Service excellent
I popped in for a pre-theatre dinner and opted for the salmon sashimi with delicious dressing, followed by the soft shell crab & shrimp burger... which is a surprising mixture of textures but works well. Staff were very friendly and it was a lovely meal.
Lovely meal my only complaint would be that it was a bit too fast on the service! Would have been better to have had more of a wait for the food to arrive. Brilliant for pre- theatre I suspect!
The service was terrible. Lots of waiters little knowledge about the food. Not very attentive to coming to serve, I always had my arm up to attract their attention. They asked me many times about my allergies and then they gave me something with the ingredient I could not eat. Portions are ridiculously small. They were not flexible on my dietary requirements. Which were quite simple i.e. not oil not butter.
Went for my birthday meal as a surprise. It didn’t disappoint, food was amazing and service was great. Will definitely be returning. The surprise ‘happy birthday’ decorated plate and I complimentary truffles were beautiful, thank you!
Really great evening celebrating a birthday with family. The staff were exceptionally personable and it was a super fun occasion
It was a very relaxed and cosy experience after the theatre.
Had pre theatre meal for 2. Food was excellent and good portion sizes. We had fish cakes, crab burger, hake and chocolate fondant. A good choice of wines by the glass. Service on drinks a little slow and for price would expect complimentary bread but these are minor points.
Very good service and good wholesome food as ever. Has never been great value, but that is to be expected.
Brilliant service and attentive!
First time oyster eaters. Very nice indeed. Staff extremely helpful
Great place central to theatre land therefore we went for a post theatre meal 11 pm.
Excellent seafood stew and Fish pie and at an average price of £14.00 pp excellent value as well.
This was our first visit to this restaurant but will definitely go again for a late night meal.
It was an “ok” experience so as compared to the good comments I have heard from my friends before I went there, I came out of the restaurant feeling slightly disappointed.
Food and wine were great!
I did leave a message telling the restaurant that it was my friends birthday and we wanted a nice corner. Have to say... it was not quite the table I hoped for, I struggled to find out how was my table “nicer” than other tables... and Don’t get my wrong, everything was fine. Service was quite slow, I had difficulties getting our waiter’s attention. It was a Monday evening, I am too convinced it is considered as a “busy” evening.
Good food as usual. Had a view of the kitchen, which changed the ambience. But will always go back.
We took a friend visiting us from the US.
Great service and food was exceptional - would hugely recommend to anyone. Thanks for a great night
Very enjoyable after the theatre - food was very good and staff were attentive and restaurant has a good feel to it.
A very good seafood meal with a friendly and energetic environment. Flavours were good and presentation was attractive, though one would have enjoyed slightly more generous servings.
The seafood platter wasn’t what i was used to. The shrimp werent cleaned . Seemed overloaded without checking the quality of each piece .
Seafood was great! The crab as well as the shrimp were very fresh and delicious. Friendly, attentive staff, good menu. Would definitely go back!
A class act, although a disagreement between two chefs (in the Atlantic Bar) got a bit loud and made us slightly uncomfortable. One of them had told the other to rescue a dish that was in danger of being overcooked, and the one that had bee told off had a fit of temper. Not good, as we have no desire to witness a scrap. Fight, by all means, but do it after service.
Food was great, really tasty smoked haddock croquettes. Fish pie was divine, very comforting, really tasty. Fish stew was really nice too.
Staff very attentive, pleasant. Great place.
One cannot fault the food or service-excellent in every way and the menu is good value.
Only grumble would be that the wine list is expensive.
Excellent pre-theatre meal - fish so good we had a 3rd course instead of pudding!
a shadow of what it once was. Limited choice of fish!
Good food, wines and service. Fish dishes cannot be faulted. Outside passagearea is grim and should be cleaned up. Inside is a haven of calm.
This was a pre-theatre dinnner. Good menu with wide seafood choice and service was attentive and efficient. Wine list a bit expensive - starting at around £40 plus-otherwise very enjoyable.
It was very nice but very overpriced for what was provided
Food and ambience, as always very good. The Fish Pie never disappoints but it took 25 mins to bring ice cream and chocolate sauce which then had to be eaten in a rush as we were going to the theatre. No time for coffee and had to pay the bill whilst eating. Very surprising for a restaurant in the middle of the theatre district which even goes so far as to check which show one is going to see when booking/confirming a table.
The menu is very short (but the ingredients are first class), the prices can be surprising (scallops are a good example), but the service makes up for it all, quick and friendly.
A positive experience, we'll be back.
Wonderful meal, as always! Guy was a wonderful host and got us to our favorite booth. The oysters and fish pie are not to be missed.
Great customer service! We had to bring a 6 week old baby to a Friday dinner and everyone at the restaurant was such a delight and looked after so well. So thank you.
Food is yummy! Will visit very soon again.
First visit, we loved it here. Great atmosphere, very attentive staff, food excellent.
great for seafood portions on the small side very attentive service
The place to go for oysters, the perfect pre-theatre aperitif. I'm a regular.
Service prompt and friendly. Great tasty food. Always same high quality.
Went for a Pre-Theatre lunch and really enjoyed it - Expensive but good food and service
Great service, amazing seafood, little pricey but definitely go back when save some penny’s :)
Nice restaurant in a very convenient location. Food is very nice.
