I really love every time I go to Old Compton.. I had the Duck confit and I was divine! The ambience is vibrant and the DJ made our meal very lively!

Brilliant night at Compton Street Brasserie. Went as a group of 6 and from the reviews expecting lively and possibly slow service because of the popularity. Things started slow but once sat down and the first drinks ordered everything was perfect, especially our waiter from the Canary Isles that we didnt even get the name of - sorry but many thanks for a great evening.

The food is way above what we expected for the venue - large portions, very well done and very good value for basically the middle of Soho. Starters like chicken wings were a large portion rather than a bar snack, the cod and chips was a battered whale and the chicken burger was huge - when offered the salad instead of chips consider it for once.

Big party atmosphere and noisy but in a great inclusive feeling - tables all singing the many happy birthdays to each other.

I dont do many 5 star reviews but have nothing bad to say on this one - bring your friends and have a laugh. Good place to bring visitors to London to see Soho back to its best.

Terrible - placed us on a table big enough for 2 for 4 of us eat - next to a dirty drain and told us nothing they could do - shocking service and wouldn’t move us inside

Food and drinks were great, the place had a lovely vibe to it. Staff were all great.
Absolutely no social distancing on tables so if you’re covid conscious it’s probably not the one for you. Had to shout at each other to have a conversation as the music was crazy loud

Compton Street brasserie is probably my favourite restaurant in town due to its consistency in service, hospitality, food quality and overall value for money. Tonights booking was a reunion of friends after 44 years and the restaurant made the evening extra special.

Restaurant manager Max and our waiter Costas - thank you and the whole team

Had a lovely meal using the three course set menu. Really buzzy atmosphere but background music level and acoustics meant you didn’t have to raise your voice to have a conversation.

Al three courses were perfectly cooked and nicely presented; the steak at a £5 supplement was surprisingly large, and rare really did mean rare.

Enjoyed the half price Aperol Spritz before 7pm, and draught beer was well priced. The table behind us had smoked Old Fashioneds which were presented with theatrical flourish in smoke-filled glass cloches.

Service was friendly, quick and attentive without being intrusive.

Value rating based on set menu and drinks
- a la carte prices were otherwise on the high side.

Lovely date night, we had the set menu and it was lovely. Paid a little extra for the steak and definitely was worth it.
Staff were amazing and couldn’t have been more helpful.
Only complaint was it was very loud in there but that’s just me being picky.

This is my absolute favorite restaurant in London. The food is always fantastic and no matter what I order I'm always delighted with my meal! The staff is also great and always efficient, happy, and polite. I can't praise Cris, Katarzyna, and Max enough—they always do a brilliant job. Can’t wait to return and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to eat/drink in Soho. Love this place and will continue to visit.

Great energy and music!

Food not great, unfortunately not at price point and very pricey for what you get. Fries were all broken down to smaller pieces and burnt. Fish We were seated under the stairs, had cigarette butts, a newspaper and mussel shells under our table. Our main courses came while we were finishing our starter.

Great atmosphere but unfortunately not at all near the £70 + price point.

Was a really buzzy place, stylish interior, packed but didn’t impact the service which was efficient and friendly. Food was great, good portion size, well presented and very tasty, prices on the reasonable side for soho and considering the portions. cocktails seemed popular, my friend had an old fashioned that came out in a smoke-filled dome, great theatre! I will visit again!

First time of visiting and we were so impressed that we booked to return again next month.

Comfortable, air conditioned dining area, great food and drinks menu and excellent value for money. Fantastic cocktails too.

What makes the restaurant particularly appealing is the friendliness, efficiency and professionalism of the staff - particularly with the way they dealt with a food sensitivity issue for my friend.

Looking forward to my next visit.

Restaurant had a lovely ambience. Food was lovely. I was only a little disappointed as I'd informed the restaurant before coming that we were celebrating a birthday and engagement and it wasn't even acknowledged. That was only the real disappointment as it made the evening a little less special.
