Great little brasserie in the heart of theatre land.

The atmosphere/ambience inside was perfect and the food was delicious. My grilled sea bass was SLIGHTLY overcooked but everything else was spot on.

I had a lovely evening at the restaurant . The food and ambiance was nice. It was extremely busy and guests were sat very close to each other. It was a bit noisy and cold as we were sat below the aircon. Despite that we had a wonderful evening and this is thanks to our waiter Davide. He's a great guy with lovely attitude and he made our evening special. He was very attentive and made us feel special throughout the night. I would recommend the restiatnat based on this. Thank you again Davide

I’ve been to the Palm Court numerous times now, last time being in August. I always have the same meal as I like it and enjoy it - this time though it was not as good as it has been on every other occasion. I have the salmon risotto. This time I felt that the salmon was not of the usual quality. I’ve always felt that the salmon came from a salmon fillet that had been cooked beforehand and flaked into the risotto. Not this time - it was not nice salmon at all - in fact I picked the strips of salmon out and left them on the side of the plate. I was very disappointed on this occasion. I didn’t complain as I did not want to ruin what otherwise was a great occasion, I will no doubt go back as it is a great place to meet and chat with people over food. Fingers crossed it will be salmon risotto that I expect next time, not what was served on this visit.

Second time visiting, first time was outstanding but this time not so much. Food was great like it usually is but the service was lacking. We had to constantly request for our order to be taken (main and dessert along with extra drinks) and no one checked up on us until we requested the bill. Again we were kept waiting a while for this and has to flag a waiter down. Perhaps it was due to visiting at 6 as opposed to last time when it was a lunchtime reservation. Both times were for a birthday but this time it didn't feel like a celebration, instead I felt rather neglected!

Food was marginal... restaurant pushed the set menu... i believe because it might be easier for the chef to get the food out. My grilled pork chop was over cooked and the wine list is not good. The red wine we ordered was kept at room temp.... so came out of the bottle hot. This restaurant can do better.

Really enjoy the restaurant however would have preferred a tablecloth on our table (it was the round marble one) which always helps with the noise issues. I took two friends over from Los Angeles and Toronto who were both very impressed by the ambience, food and service.

Came here to celebrate my birthday. The starters were good, the main was fine but nothing outstanding. The downside was that our bottle of wine never arrived for the main course. We were here 2 years ago also to celebrate my birthday and enjoyed it more back then.

As usual, we were welcomed to the restaurant. We chose from the Opentable set menu - 3 courses and a Kir Royale for £24, which is good value. I had the baked brie followed by a very tasty Rainbow Trout with mashed potatoes and baked vegetables (extra). The chocolate gateau (?) was a little too sweet for my taste but otherwise very good. The service was friendly and helpful - excellent! A very enjoyable lunch.

Pleasant atmosphere. Pre theatre menu was very good and service good too. Would have preferred the music volume to be turned down as it was a little difficult for conversation and the restaurant echoed somewhat but we would return. I think it is hard to justify the description of overlooking Covent Garden!

The food was good but not amazing, but (and big but) I have eaten here before and really enjoyed it. So it could have been just been the dish I chose, or it could even just have been us being exhausted after a long day. The prices are reasonable and the selection is good.
The service is fantastic, the whole team was friendly, helpful and welcoming. I'll definitely go back.

We found the service to be subpar, in particular the waiter was quite rude. The food was okay, but not what I would usually expect for those prices. While the Sunday roast was plentiful it was dry, the vegetables weren’t flavoured very well and it was served with little gravy. I would recommend steering clear of the vegetarian Sunday roast option.

The service was outstanding. Efficient waiter service without you feeling they were breathing down your neck. Staff were very friendly. The food was amazing and their cocktails were damn good too :) It was lovely to go somewhere a little fancier than your average restaurant and it not not feel in the least bit pretentious. It made a milestone birthday treat feel very special.
