Foxlow has taken over the ground floor and basement of a former office building just off Golden Square at 8-10 Lower James Street, W1F 9EL.
The lively interior and atmosphere reflects the location, whilst also retaining the familiarity of the trusted, comfortable local – perfect for everything from fun dinners with friends and family gatherings, to a leisurely brunch armed with the weekend papers.
In addition to lunch and dinner, Foxlow Soho will open daily for brunch, which will include the famous Fried chicken, egg & croissant waffle. Theatregoers and value-seekers will love the set menu and on Tuesday nights (as with all Foxlow restaurants) customers will be able to bring their own wine, corkage free. Weekend brunching will take place from 10am – 3pm with several new brunch cocktails alongside bottomless Bloody Marys. And Sundays at Foxlow are well known for roasts, either Beef with all the trimmings or the new Chicken pot roast.

I booked Foxlow for brunch catch up with my uni friends here, and I was really happy with the food as well as their Virgin Mary (I didn't want to drink alcohol, but my friends who got the cocktails said they're really good as well). The server we had was very friendly and diligent, and made an excellent recommendation with one of my food choices. He did accidentally knock over some food on me when he was delivering to the table, but these things happen, no harm done, and they went (in my opinion) above and beyond to rectify the situation. I would definitely go again!

The best steak I've had in a long time. I had a rare rib eye - exceptional. I always love skinny fries as well. Great £5 cocktails before 7pm and a lovely sticky toffee pudding. It's quite loud. Which is good for us - we can talk and laugh as loudly as we want without worrying!

I went to Foxlow Soho for a lunch with a former colleague. The booking arrangements, the service in the restaurant and the food were all excellent. I thought the menu was good too with sufficient choice but not too much. Finally, the central location and the value-for money means I look forward to visiting the restaurant again.

Tasty food (we both had steak) with a lively, relaxed atmosphere. Attentive and friendly staff. We sat downstairs and were pleased to have our own table rather than one of the sharing tables upstairs. Would have been 5* if it wasn’t for the fact that my preferred starter and main course options had sold out - but happy with my second choices!

BYOB Tuesday was such a good evening. Aside from letting us bring our own wine, the chicken burgers were fantastic and when we did run out of booze, the wine list came to the rescue. Great service too. Will be back!

We expected it to be rammed when we arrived on a Saturday night, shortly after 9pm, but there were plenty of seats available.

Good selection of steaks, meat, burgers - menu is like an upscale diner. Comfort food.

The chicken burger was Southern Fried breast in buns. Tasty. Chips were crispy. burger looked good.

A good pit stop post-movie.

The wine and beer options were good, and staff were very pleasant. However, it was a shame that the steak was a bit tough for medium-rare, and the side dishes were very small.

As a sister restaurant of Hawksmoor (which we love), we were really looking forward to checking Foxlow out. I think we were inbetween lunch and dinner service, which meant service was slow, although all staff were extremely friendly. Nice starters, but my basic chicken burger was served raw and I had to send back. Hugely disappointing for a reputable brand and not sure how they could get something so basic so wrong! Sadly we won’t be returning.

An occasional visitor to the Clerkenwell branch of Foxlow it was a rather nice treat to head over to the Soho sibling for a business lunch. A very different atmosphere from EC1 but still very much the Foxlow feel. A simple menu, ideal for lunch, quiet enough to talk without being entirely free from atmosphere and only a ten-minute walk from the office.

Been avoiding Foxlow due to very bad (slow/not available) service on last couple of visits but tempted back by BYO Tuesday and glad I did. Service was completely different and attentive, food was excellent (rib starter, sirloin for main (good quality cut and well cooked) and sticky toffee for dessert) and BYO idea is excellent so made for decent value

This is not our first visit to Foxlow Soho. Service was friendly and efficient - the one lady being particularly charming. Thankfully a loud table was just finishing as we arrived so we were spared any annoyance from that, and so the ambience was perfect.
Flat-iron steak ordered all round were excellent - with just one maybe a little over-salted - cooked to our likings. Short list of dessert options all looked great, although they didn't have all available. Sticky toffee pudding was nice but not the best apparently, and the Elvis sundae (with bacon bits) sounded intriguing enough to try but would be an acquired taste!
Overall great and recommended but could have been even better!

Overall the food tastes great but the portions are rather small. Which is kind of OK as the prices are reasonable for Central London. The chicken and waffles were excellent. Ice cream sundaes were tiny. Nothing like the picture on their website. Couldn't really call them a 'sundae'. Two tiny scoops in a glass dish with a teaspoon of topping, not worth £6.50 each.. Nice atmosphere - we were there for Saturday lunch but thankfully it wasn't too busy. As they offer bottomless drink options the waitress said the weekends can sometimes get very hectic and rowdy with groups. Service was friendly and helpful but food did take a while to arrive despite them not being as busy as usual. I can imagine it would have been a very long wait if they were at capacity, but we were in no rush. Very good experience overall. Would go again as the food was excellent. Bit of an 'Instagrammable' venue if you're into that kind of thing.

Not often you find somewhere so reasonably priced in the area! The food was great, range of options for vegetarians and carnivores. Our waitress was extremely friendly with a good sense of humour. I had the ribeye and it was cooked perfectly with bags of flavour.

If anything the food came too quickly (odd flaw), but it made it feel a little rushed at times.

Would definitely recommend and will be coming back for more!

The ribeye steak was superb, however the chips was a bit disappointed because they were too stringy. The bearnaise sauce should have been included with the steak. Mushroom side was fantastic.
