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.

Simple menu: salad, then steak and chips with a good sauce (the only choice is how you want your meat cooked and then from a small range of sweets). Good food, good drink good service.

The food was okay but the service was awful. The waitresses rush around with no care for the clients. We had never been before and I feel the unique experience should be explained but it wasn’t. Total disregard for client experience. The host is also incredibly rude and should work on her people skills.

Amazing steak and service. Great concept of a fixed menu with second helpings if you can squeeze it in. Would definitely recommend and return.

L'Entrecote Soho is not on par with the L'Enretcote in Paris. The walnut salad was very limp, meagre and very light on walnuts. French fries were more like curly fries and not very crisp. On the upside the Bordeaux wine was good value and the steak sauce was pretty good.

My second visit to Le Relais de Venise in Soho in the past month. As expected, the food, service and value were outstanding. If you like a great Steak with some amazing sauce in great company. I highly recommend. The restaurant follow all aspects for Covid Safety, everything is clean and you feel safe and secure. The service from the Team is great and everything arrives hot and very quickly. Also if you have room left over, try one of their delicious deserts .

Really nice dinner, definitely has the French / Parisian vibe going on which makes it nice and authentic. Didn't leave full as they top up your fries! Wine was fine, nice and cheap. If you're looking for a 'sorry we can't be in Paris this weekend because of Covid' date night, this is perfect.

The food was simple and very tasty, the service on the other hand was horrific.

I have never been treated so terribly in any restaurant, the waitress was abrupt and flung salt and pepper sachets at us when we asked for them, she also was very aggressive when scooping sauce that was flying anywhere. Never have I ever seen someone so unhappy to be serving people in my life!

Restaurant has a very simple dining menu, steak & frites with salad and bread for £24. The steak is very tender, tasty, and is as if I were eating in Paris. Great house wine and a delicious dessert menu. Be sure to ask for the side of mustard as it makes the steak all the more tastier!

The food was really nice and the steak was cooked very well. The starter should be optional as it is a very standard salad (nothing special). The service was really poor. We felt rushed since we got there. I was still eating my dessert when the waitress asked me if I am ready for the bill which I found to be incredibly rude. When asked if the sauce they use for the steak has nuts, one waitress said she did not know and did not bother to check. Even though the food was nice, I would not go there again.

Great food, enjoyed it immensely. Covid restrictions impacted on the ambience as it does everywhere, however I did think it was quite full in the restaurant and it was super noisy. I do have to criticise the lack of track and trace, sorry guys!!! I can’t wait for this to all be over and we can relax over a nice meal out instead of worry about social distancing.

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.
