Le Relais de Venise L’Entrecote is famous for its simple menu. Diners enjoy a green salad starter tossed with mustard vinaigrette and sprinkled with walnuts, with the restaurant’s signature steak frites main course to follow. The sauce which accompanies the steak has always remained a closely guarded secret and is a perfect accompaniment to the steak, which can be cooked blue, rare, medium or well done. The steak is brought to the diners in two stages (with one half held back to keep it warm) so it can be enjoyed at its best and is served with more freshly prepared frites, hand chipped on the premises. The menu (the salad and steak frites) has a fixed price of £24.

A small selection of hand-picked wines accompany the meal and there is a selection of cheeses and a dessert list with profiteroles, meringue and other ice cream confections, all freshly made on the premises.

Service was fast and efficient. As you are there for steak and frites, that is all you are offered. Steak was cooked perfectly (2 medium and 2 rare). Sauce divided the table (2 liked it 2 didn’t). But all of us would go again.

Having only previously been to the Marylebone branch pre-lockdown I was very disappointed. The famous green salad was a bit gritty and there was hardly any dressing. The frites were fabulous but the steak was tasteless and even the sauce didn’t make up for that. The profiteroles however were great.
The ambiance was non existent and it was all generally a let down

As a regular, I’m glad that Le relais has reopened and with its usual menu! However our fries were overdone and tables weren’t quite spaced 2m apart. Saying that, it wasn’t overly busy, but full enough to be reassuring during these times. Also they had sachets of salt & pepper, and mini servings of the mustard - but you had to ask for it! Service was the same as always, and it was nice to see the full dessert menu on offer!

Not quite as good as the Parisian alternative in terms of food and wine but very helpful staff and it was only so loud becuase of the eat out initiative.

Very bad service the waitress we had was super stressed and rude to us. Portion for steak very small even with second serving. I feel the steak got smaller compared to previous visits. Limited portion of bread and even sauce was restricted for us. Food very super greasy fatty.

The food was delicious.
The service however was extremely rushed. Felt like we were being made to rush through our dinner.

Social distancing seemed to not be followed too well. Some of the tables were extremely close together with lots of people very close to eachother. It was reminiscent of how things were before the pandemic.

We had lunch on Sunday and had booked, although that was not necessary. It is sad to see the West End so quiet at weekends. As usual the quality of the food was very good, as was the service we received, and the cost is not unreasonable for a real quality meal. This was the first time I had dined at the Soho restaurant and it is very well located and up to standard.

Beautiful steak, best sauce I’ve ever had and frites were great too but portions are small. The 2 servings of steak is actually one 180g (6oz) steak served to you in 2 rounds and no more, so not for those coming hungry / looking for a hearty size meal. Staff very nice.
