Langan’s Brasserie is one of London's most legendary restaurants and boasts a great location in Green Park, just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly Circus and Hyde Park.
Renowned for its warm greeting and super friendly service, the Brasserie's Anglo-French cuisine has been a favourite with a star studded clientele that has included Frank Sinatra, HRH Princess Margaret, Mohammed Ali, Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, and Diana, Princess of Wales.
The interior is full of distinctive artworks and the restaurant has been a regular haunt of emerging artists including Francis Bacon and David Hockney.
The brasserie menu features traditional British dishes like Langan’s bangers and mash, cod & chips, and potted shrimps. The spinach souffle is a must. Among long-running London restaurants, Langan’s is a star.

Food, service & ambience were excellent. Only disappointment was that food was only lukewarm when it was served, both main courses & sides.

We were celebrating my niece's 18th so wanted a special venue for a special occasion and, as always, Langan's delivered that magical cocktail of great food, service, busy/buzzy atmosphere and all at a price that is very reasonably when you consider the location in the heart of Mayfair. We asked for a cake for my niece's birthday, and was so lovely that everyone joined in singing "Happy Birthday" to her. Made this special occasion truly memorable. I've been coming to Langan's now for 25+ years, remains one of my favourite restaurants in London.

We had another great evening at the 'ever reliable' Langans Brasserie.
The food is straightforward and tasty but we always start with the fantastic spinach souffle with anchovy hollandaise sauce.
The service is very professional and the atmosphere lively and fun. We meet old friends there and usually go on our wedding anniversary. Long may it remain its unique self.

We have been going to Langan's for twenty years and still love the place as much as we first visited.
All the mains where pretty much spot on but my pheasant was on the dry side and the game chips were not so inspiring everybody else had pies which they liked apart from the chips that came with one of the pies were not up to the usual standard.
As I said it's still a great place to eat and drink.

The food was everything you expect of this classic place, service was better than expected however, very attentive when needed. It is lively And the tables are close to each other, again as expected. When we arrived there were two big tables, a work party - they were incredibly noisy and annoying. Many left the restaurant because although the manager tried, he couldn’t keep them quiet. Thankfully they left. They should have remained in the pub.

Crab starter with chicory, honey and ginger dressing, tasty but not very much crab. Dover sole very nice. My husband had the smoked haddock with poached eggs to start and said it was watery.

Lots on the menu too choose from but maybe they need a smaller menu to improve the quality.

Unfortunately on our visit of 8 people we was squashed onto a table with a maximum capacity of 6 people which left no room for side orders to fit onto the table.

Service was very slow on our visit and we left disappointed, we would return but not as a party of more than 6 people.

We haven’t been here for a few years since the unpleasantness with the black pudding! My husband is a black pudding aficionado and did not think much of the standard of theirs and complained, much to our son’s embarrassment! However, scrolling through open table, checked the menu and they had me at lamb shank with garlic mash! So we went and had a wonderful time. Particularly as in a side room a large group of people seemed to be very well oiled and getting very affectionate with each other, if you get my drift!!! Oh and luckily there no longer seems to be any black pudding on the menu so that problem was averted! We’ll certainly be going back.

For a get-together with friends Langans should still cut it but on a return visit (haven’t been for years) I was shocked at how poor the food was. There were four of us and we only ordered main courses. One was the wrong dish (ravioli instead of risotto) two were stone cold inside (the fish pies) and had to be replaced and the bangers and mash only lukewarm. The service was fine if very old school and the place packed so atmosphere still good but the menu needs some attention and the cooking more so.

On arrival through the front door there was an overwhelming smell of fish, which we appreciate it is predominately a fish restaurant but it was quite unpleasant.
The initial welcome was very hurried and we felt the need for us to be ushered quickly to our table.
A little disappointing this visit, we waited an unusually long time for our order to be taken and followed by the length of time for each course and then the bill.
The main impression was that the staff were stretched and this then has the impact on the service.
I would like to say that the waiters that served us were very polite.
