    Excellent for afternoon tea, and great location close to the hussle and bustle of Regent Street but not too close. Highly recommend.

    Staff who couldn’t speak English who were not attentive and rude overall. Food was poor quality and insanely overpriced. The interior was a lovely design but that was it. One moment that stood out that was for the prawn dish with spaghetti we only received the head and tails of the prawn and none of the meat for a £22 dish! Then had to make them change it after debate. Do not recommend and will not be going back.

    Lovely restaurant, right opposite the Trafalgar Theatre. Staff were polite, welcoming and accommodating. Food was good, Antipasti to start(sharing platter) and pasta each for main, 2 glasses of wine and 2 beers,£100. We enjoyed the restaurant, we wasn’t rushed at all, and most of all, we wasn’t continuously asked if everything was ok whilst we had a mouthful of food!

    Food isn’t bad although we asked for Parmesan and they had run out!!!! In an Italian restaurant?! There is a Tesco not far away, and they should have bought some from there rather than admit to customers they failed to order sufficient food! Food was slow to arrive, service was appalling slow. Had to wait ages for a drink then I managed to call someone over, ordered and then it didn’t come until our main course!!! I was so thirsty by then!! They started clearing away plates of my guests whilst I was still eating. We ordered 2 cold desserts and one hot. The hot one came long after the 2 cold desserts had been eaten. Unsurprisingly, the bill (with £15 service charge added on!) came incredibly quickly!!!! In fact, the bill came and they arrived with the card machine BEFORE the hot dessert came out!! An unpleasant experience that I won’t be repeating

    Food and service were good, but on a quality/price ratio you can find better in other places, so the key selling point is pairing that with superb ambience, great space and decorations. I would recommend for the experience specially if you’re looking for a pretty place for a date!

    My young daughter and I had a lovely lunch. It was a treat for a day out in London so I wanted something causal but a bit special and this was ideal. The staff were very welcoming too.

    Caffee Concerto keeps a "fake" menu for tourists with prices 20-25% higher that in the Internet and after that they add a service charge.

    We were a little late due to the, obvious traffic around Whitehall on trooping the colour day. When we (my mother and I) arrived, and told the staff that I had booked a table, no one really asked for my name or any type of confirmation, which I thought was a little strange. Since I did make a specific note when I booked in advance. We were given a really wobbly table, at the back. It was a very warm day, so thankfully it was near the AC. The chairs were somewhat comfortable, however after looking around at other guests who had incredibly more comfortable chairs and stable tables, I was a little disappointed. After a short wait, we were served. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We had ordered two virgin belinis, the ravioli with lobster and crab and the grilled salmon steak. We were first served the drinks, and the server was struggling to get through the chairs, with how far back we were seated. The drinks did spill a little but to no fault of anyone. The belinis were fruitful, sweet and absolutely satisfying. I highly recommend the drink for warm/hot weather. The ravioli was marvellous, if you ever visit, this is something you must try! It was at a perfect hot temperature, creamy, a slight nutty after taste, all in all a fantastic dish. The grilled salmon steak, was flavourful however it was pretty dry. One thing caused great discomfort yet again was eating on the wobbly table, we were both afraid our drinks were going to fall over. I've never eaten at restaurant, with so much anxiety in my life! To conclude, our experience at caffe concerto was good but it could have been better. Would I visit again? Maybe, at a quieter time.

    Everything was great, food, staff, atmosphere and price reasonable for London. Our only downside was there was not enough staff, 1 more would have made a big difference. The table was not ready for our reservation, too long to order drinks and for them to come.

    We had gone to the wrong one, as there are quite a few in the area. We were slightly late but it wasn't a problem. The restaurant wasn't particular busy. We ordered a starter, but unfortunately this didn't arrive, however the waitress was so apologetic and kept on apologising, it really wasn't a problem Food was lovely, I had the king prawn risotto which as meant to have garlic in but I hate garlic so was made without which was great, very tasty. Will go back

    Alex who served to us was very attentive and accommodating. He was helpful and gave great advice. His manner was welcoming, friendly and warm. We really enjoyed the evening. The main course was delicious the only minor thing was that the Pistachio cake was a tiny bit dry but it was the end of the day. Nonetheless I would happily go again.

    The setting is lovely, the cafe itself looks nice and the service was reasonable. However, the food is really not worth it. I went there with my team for cake. There's a lot of choice, but the cakes are poor quality. I had Mille Feuille (which felt like I was eating lard) and a hot chocolate (which was primarily sugar). Ravello is a much better bet (though not as nice inside)

    Booked a table for lunch before seeing The Jersey Boys at The Trafalgar Theatre. The location couldn't have been better, as Theatre was almost opposite, so could enjoy a leisurely lunch. Caffe Concerto was attractive inside with attentive staff and very good Italian cuisine.

    When we arrived, the Manageress advised she had no bookings at all. I showed her my email from OpenTable and she advised that the system must be down. However, luckily we were still able to get a table for 4 and as we had arrived early gave us time to eat and get to the theatre on time. The service was very good, we had also booked afternoon tea for after the theatre and the Manageress assured us we would have a table. When we arrived for afternoon, the Manageress remembered us, her staff were so attentive, the food both at lunch and tea was very nice.

    Fantastic food but make sure you leave plenty of time if you visit before the theatre. We had to chase the waiters for our food and the bill as the service was so slow - mainly due to lack of staff which I appreciate but just be warned

    The staff were very pleasant and helpful if not a bit persistent but that could have been because the restaurant wasn’t super busy when we were there! The food was well presented and very tasty. The one criticism I have is that one of our party asked for just ice cream for dessert and was told that wasn’t offered, yet you could pay for a scoop as an addition to one of the other desserts. Surely it would have been easy enough to put one or two scoops into a bowl and charge as if it was an addition. They lost out because rather than make some money on the ice cream the member of our party had nothing

    We had a wonderful family meal at Caffe Concerto Whitehall - conveniently located across the road from the Trafalgar Theatre (and minutes from Trafalgar Square). Service was friendly and quick. Food was delicious and the ambience is wonderful - the decor at all Caffe Concerto locations is from a bygone era - opulent elegance. We love the artwork and chandeliers.

    Caffe Concerto has always been a lovely setting to eat and the extensive menu and delicious cakes on show are a delight. It was sad but a relief to see it so empty so that social distancing could be easily achieved but I was a bit concerned that there seemed to be no track or trace in place. I landed up visiting three times and the tea was the best cuppa I have had in several years anywhere and the Garden breakfast was an absolute treat. The staff are always pleasant and attentive and this is one chain where the standards are consistently high.
