    OpenTable needs to take this place off. Bought tickets Sunday night, got they’re and they had no idea what this was. No cabaret at 7:30. Didn’t know this was posted on OpenTable, couldn’t refund the tickets. Gave me an email to a manager, Emma Lord - who has not responded or refunded my money.

    I paid for two courses with the cabaret show. When I got there, the rude door man tried to stop me entering, then the waiter said that despite paying for pizza and dessert, they had no desserts. I got no refund or replacement. This is theft.

    The service was pretty slow to get us seated when we first arrived, which was disappointing as we were a larger group and had booked ahead. We were then also asked to order our own drinks at the bar which was a bit annoying. However, it was a very busy Saturday night and, initial slow start notwithstanding, we had a great night - the food was lovely, the atmosphere great and the entertainment fantastic. Myra Dubois had us literally crying with laughter at our table. We cannot wait to return (maybe in a smaller group though, so the self-service on drinks is less of a pain)!

    The location is good for the theatre next door. The room is interesting and quite comfortable. However, our evening was spoiled by the very late arrival of our main courses, which meant that we very nearly missed the start of the show. The food was just OK, but the chicken Kiev was burnt. The service was not very attentive, apart from being asked four times if we'd like more (very expensive) drinks!

    The staff was pleasant and attentive- the food was very good. Great location for a pre-theater dinner, particularly if you’re going to Come From Away. Would be good for any other nearby theatres as well. The real test – we will eat there again.

    The place is super campy and fun. The decor, music and everything is a musical Queen’s dream. The service in the other hand is almost non existence. The waitress was super friendly but not attentive. We always had to track her down or go to the bar.

    We chose here having read the reviews and we loved it. We were going to the show in Phoenix Theatre that evening so booked for dinner prior to the show. Food was lovely I had the set menu which was really good value and hubby chose from the à la carte. Food was served beautifully hot and was all very tasty. The staff were very friendly and one of them told us that if we wanted to come in for a nightcap after the show we just needed to show our theatre tickets for free entry in the evening. After a fabulous show (come from away) we went back to the artist club for a nightcap and it was buzzing. Fantastic atmosphere and we didn’t leave there till nearly midnight!

    Amazing vibe. Very chilled. Great prompt service. It's very artsy and trendy place with great photos and etc on the walls. The lighting was very subtle and romantic. I went there for a date and was very pleased with it. The food was so good and the food very tasty and well presented. The wine was excellent.

    We chose Phoenix Artist Club from online recommendations for pre-theatre dining before seeing the fabulous Come From Away at the Phoenix Theatre. We arrived at 6pm, in good time so we thought as the show starts at 19:30. However, service - although very pleasant - was super slow, we didn't get our main course until 19:05 so had to rush to eat and pay bill to get to our seats in time. The food itself was OK - starters of smoked sheep's cheese and chunky vegetable soup were tasty. My friend's main course chicken kiev was enjoyed, however I ordered cod goujons and chips and was disappointed that there were only two thin goujons of fish which were mostly batter. Given the short time left before the show didn't have time to complain and asked for/paid the bill at the same time the meals came. It's a quirky place and nice ambience but would not return.

    Great pre theatre dinner and location is just steps from the Phoenix theatre entrance. Service was so kind and efficient and appetizers and entrees were very good. Only downside is its downstairs and feels like youre in an old dark dressing room with no windows.

    Not a great experience as they only really had the set menu and not all of that was available. Agree with a previous review about the glitter ball lighting. Sure it’s great late night when it’s more of a cabaret/drinks venue but not at 6.30. Avoid the ‘apple crumble’ completely!

    Really nice pre-theatre meal. Food was fresh and tasty and the service was friendly and welcoming. Ambience was pleasant - albeit a little dark for early evening. Food and wine both reasonable but we thought the G&Ts were a bit pricey.

    The Phoenix is back! The last menu was a bit disappointing, but the new one is outstanding - loads of veggie and vegan options, but some amazing finger food too - the truffled arancini would make Locanda Locatelli jealous. Obviously, the venue is superb and the list of awards is rightly growing all the time - best enertainment club was won last week..... Service was spot on - even on a busy Saturday evening approaching Christmas. Great range of beers and ciders as well as wines, spirits and a few cocktails.

    The only negative I can comment on is that at certain tables the coloured moving lights are a bit irritating when you're eating your meal. They hurt my eyes, so we moved tables twice. Otherwise, it was amazing and we will most likely return when we're in London.

    Descending the stairs into the Dead Glamorous Phoenix Artist Club is like walking into Weimar Berlin. You wouldn't be surprised to see Sally Bowles singing Cabaret or Marlene Dietrich drinking martinis in the corner with her secret boyfriend. But this is 21st century Soho and the best living bar in the west end. Food's not bad either and the staff are friendly without being nosey parkers.
