Once again, our dining experience at Old Compton Brasserie (OCB) was outstanding. We’ve visited this bar / restaurant over 10 times in the last few months and each time, the food and service has been excellent. Thank you to Sebastian and Christian for such a warm welcome and to the rest of the team who provide outstanding service. I love the varied menu and every meal I have had, has been delicious. On top of this, the fun atmosphere and lovely venue make OCB an all-round brilliant bar and restaurant. We’ll be again again soon! Erin x

Very nice place but by no means cheap, although not exceptionally expensive for Soho. Service was good/friendly if not overworked. Great smokey old fashioned & chicken burger.

Having been before several times, we had recently booked for a group of 18 for a joint Birthday celebration. Fantastic attention to detail and so welcoming by the staff, couldn't praise them more highly. The food was excellent, and a small point but something that was noted was that all meals arrived across the tables at the same time. Was a 10/10 experience for all.

Intimidated by a party of people who apparently used to own the place. Couldn’t finish meal as the guy that used to own the place stood up and threatened us, as we polity asked their friend to stop putting her hair in our food. We were moved table to be away from them, then the restaurant manager moved them outside in our eye line where they stared us out and again intimidated us. 2 ladies that were sat next to them were also moved near us as they were aggressive towards all over customers.

Went here for a mid-week dinner with a friend. Initially was told that our table was inside but offered to be added to the waitlist for a spot outside. Waited only for about 5 minutes and was given a table outside where the vibe was a lot nicer - lively buzz but could easily hear each other. Inside was a bit too loud/dark for what we were after. Service was friendly and attentive, not pushy in any way. Initially booked the set menu online but swapped and opted for main a la carte and this was no trouble for them to accommodate. I've been here several times for drinks (the cocktails are to die for and £5 Aperol spritz in happy hour!) but was my first time eating. Would come back again for both and highly recommend this gem in Soho!

Once again the service was fantastic - from the manager's warm welcome, to the wonderful Carlos who must surely win the award for 'Loveliest Waiter in London'. Food was terrific (as was the wine). A simple dish of tomatoes and cheese was outstanding. The tomatoes were sweet, salty with a slight aniseed kick - unbelievable. I continue to have great experiences of this restaurant.

Great meal. Made us very welcome. Excellent food quality and pretty quick service. Only challenges were that it was quite noisy and they had pretty much run out of champagne. Turning that around could be positive: great that there was a buzz about the place, and great they had been so busy they were short of fizz!

Definitely remains a favourite restaurant.
