Pre/post Theatre
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.

What is there to say other than it was great. Remember to book in advance as there was a long queue.

We liked the restaurant and would go back again, However, It felt a little frantic on entering the restaurant, was kept waiting having booked. French Fries were yummy but the meat not as good as the restaurant in Geneva.

Overall, a nice experience and would recommend a visit.

Scrumptious food comes in affordable price with the EOTHO. Despite being so crowded, the waitresses try to provide their best service at decent time.

The manager was the most awful manager. Clearly didn't care about the business. I asked for a butter and she said in a rude way that they don't serve butter. She didn't even offer an alternative when they had olive oil! I feel sad for the business owner with hiring that manager. The stff were much more better than the manager. Will never go back with such a horrible behaviour

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.

With Covid restrictions there is no longer a plate of steak/fries that is constantly replenished - but they do ask if you would like more and give you a second serving. The food is simple, but very good, and the ambience remains even with table spacing. Would definitely recommend !

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.
