One of my all time favourites - amazing wine selection and really really really impressive food to go with the list. We ordered their baked camembert, octopus and duck breast, all of which were delicious and we will always come back here for wine evening at Covent Garden.

The food was very tasty, but small portions for the price. There was an extensive wine list, but prices varied hugely and there wasn't much at the affordable end. Staff seemed nice but were not particularly helpful in navigating their wine menu nor were they very attentive, which was particularly noticeable as the place wasn't busy at the time we went. The restaurant was intimate but not fussy - which was nice for enjoying the meal.

Great venue and cosy. The wine and service was great and even though we did enjoy the food, both of us thought it was quite overpriced for what we received. Sharing 3 small dishes and having 3 glasses of wine each cost us £105.

Excellent location near Covent Garden but not in the middle of the crush. Feels to me like being in France (that's a plus in my book), with superb choice of well-kept cheeses and charcuterie among other gastronomic pleasures - and great wines. Welcoming interior. A relatively small number of tables so quite intimate.

Phenomenal wines, friendly service, and top-not service. Although everything was incredible, I don’t feel the price tag was warranted.

I was disappointed to see a wine bar all about women being run by men! Even though they were very nice!
I also thought it was very pricey and the wines by the glass selection was a little disappointing.

Dear Emma, We are for parity and we accept anyone who have the talent and skills to work with us. Our team is composed of men and women. I hope your over all rating is not because of the gender fo our staff. I am Carole Bryon, the owner of the place. I am working there almost every day but sometimes, I also take an evening off ;) that's why you didn't see me the other day. If you come back you will maybe have the chance to be served by myself or one of our female team members!

The wines we tried weren't that impressive... but the prices were astonishingly high. They must be marking things up 4x or 5x. I didn't think it was good value for money. The bottles were in the £75+ range. I was with a wine expert whose business was distributing fine French wines, and she was no more impressed with it than I was. The service was decent, and the food was acceptable. I won't be back though... there are better-priced, better-value wine-tasting bars and restaurants in London.

I asked for a wine flight with vegan food and they were so pleased to adjust the meal for me although there were no vegan options on the menu. I say put a vegan wine flight on the menu--it will be a huge hit!

Interesting/great wine, but not the widest variety if you're a nerd. Love the philosophy.

Staff is lovely.

Only down-side, french restaurant must have much better bread (it was average). And more wines/vintages per region

Try it out for sure.

Folks need to know it is not an English Pub, but more of a trendy wine bar. It is also not quite a restaurant; more tapas. But the wine list is good, as is the service and it was overall a good experience and enough food with an excellent fondue and charcuterie board.

A bit pricey for a glass of wine, but a lovely little space in the heart of Covent Garden serving lovely French nibbles and tasty plates of food. Disappointed a few things had run out on the night but all cooked fresh to order. Definitely a place to go in pairs as a bit small for groups.

Some lovely wines and a great choice - £7-11 for a 125ml glass.
Food nice, small plates. I’ve had better more creative food at the same price though.
Lovely atmosphere - feels like it’s been there forever.
Service was non existent though. At 8.30 felt like they were keen to shut up shop rather than take another wine order. We weren’t the only ones to notice or comment on this.

Very nice small wine bar - very cozy (i.e., you'll be close to your neighbour!) - with great selection of interesting wines and knowledgeable staff. Food was fine - but you'll not go there for the meals. Bit expensive, but then you are in Covent Garden neighbourhood.

This is a nice little place for a glass of wine and some snacks. The food was good but not excellent, at times it felt underseasoned and so lacked the flavour that the description of the dishes promised. Definitely worth a visit for a casual meeting with friends.

Lovely decor. Great wine list championing female wine makers but I did consider the wine over priced.
Food was very good and reasonable price for the location.
Service was fairly disappointing - no assistance provided with the menu or recommendations made. Waitress was quite stand-off-ish with us.

Lady of the Grape is a very small, cozy French restaurant with tables close together and informal service. The wine is not consistently good, so choose carefully. The food was generally good, rich French food but came out in no particular order. We ate tapas style which worked well enough, but we all felt hungry after the theatre.
