Tuttons is arguably one of the most famous and long standing restaurants in Covent Garden, situated on the east side of the historic piazza, overlooking the hustle and bustle of the markets. You can now book a table outside on the beautiful terrace, overlooking Covent Garden Piazza - the perfect spot to enjoy the summer sun.

Offering a classically English menu focusing on seasonal dishes from Great British suppliers, we offer traditional meals which showcase the variety and quality of the U.K’s food, from breakfast through to the evening a la carte menu.
Tuttons also offers a fantastic place to relax with a coffee or just enjoy a quick bar snack and cocktail before heading out to enjoy all that Covent Garden has to offer, and if you’re planning a party or more formal occasion, our private vaults, created from the old cellars offer a romantic and imaginative area to host in.

    Experience started off poorly with the restaurant not honoring my OpenTable reservation, fortunately the restaurant was dead so they found us a table begrudgingly. We gave our drink orders as we sat down, then we proceeded to watch them sit on the bar for 20 min with the hopeless serving team looking at them and shrugging as if it wasn't their problem. Eventually our server finally comes over to do her job and we can let her know the issue and instead of fetching them she insisted, "the kitchen was closing" we said we wanted our drinks from off the bar and she rolled her eyes at us, continuing to insist on us ordering. We put our order in and got our drinks. And it was quite positive after that. Food was delicious, the chefs are certainly the only thing holding this restaurant together. Maybe Gordon Ramsay can make time away from the Savoy to stick this pub on Kitchen Nightmares, because there's a lot of potential here ruined by shoddy management.

    Very last minute booking with Open Table - made about an hour before - having been told by Tuttons they had no space for the evening! So worth using Open Table for a start. The food was delicious. Starter of salmon was a bit simple and nothing too fancy but tasty all the same. Main of Chicken breast and partner had pork belly was absolutely delicious. Such good flavours. Didn't make it to dessert unfortunately. Good value for money as the portion sizes were great - not too much or too little - and the food was good. Service was attentive and friendly too. I'd definitely go to Tuttons again.

    We were given the Pre theatre menu, which we asked for on arrival, we decided to have just 2 courses, ordered drinks which arrived quiet quickly, ordered our mains, when they arrived we had two risotto, when one should have been a burger, so this was taken away to which the rest of the party began eating and were nearly finished by the time the burger arrived, the desserts were correct. the ? manager said due to the mistake and wait we would not be charged for one of the cocktails, however when we returned home on Sunday going through the receipts, I noticed that we had in fact been charged the price for 3 courses, not two, so the FREE cocktails was in fact paid for, service was not the best, feel that there were a lot of new staff, nothing like the last time I visited this restaurant,

    Pre theatre and family together. Food too slow. Some waiter/waitress were great but a few are not. Seats were filthy when we arrived. My meal was excellent (seafood risotto) but other seafood plates others ordered were either very very small(fish cake) or very very dry(salmon).

    Firstly - can’t fault the food. Delicious and well presented. However the service we received ruined the whole experience. From the moment we arrived I have never felt so unwelcome in a restaurant. No meet and greet , rude abrupt waiter and a forgotten main course. Shame - I thought Tuttons was a Covent Garden ‘institution’ . Staff let them down in our experience.

    They said they had no record of our booking. Whose fault was that? Open Table’s? Tutton’s? This is the first time tibia has ever happened to us. Second problem. We asked to sit outside. Once seated, we asked to have the pre-theatre lunch (which we had mentioned on our original booking!) We we’re told we had to sit inside for the pre-theatre lunch. Why? We don’t know. We moved inside and were seated right next to an open window, which was great. After that, everything was excellent—the food, the service. Oh, and we were given a free dessert because it took a long—and I mean long—time to arrive.

    A pleasant enough meal but would not recommend. I had to ask for the pre-theatre menu - it was not offered. Service was slow and one waiter spilt a glass of red wine over me. Now while accidents do happen ( and luckily I was wearing black ), there was no offer of a free drink or a discount. I then attended the theatre smelling of Merlot! Not what I would have expected of a well known restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden. It is because of this poor customer service I won’t go back and won’t recommend the restaurant to friends or family.

    By far the worst dining experience I have had in a long long time. Seating for our group had been split across two tables not next to each other. 1.5 hours after ordering and drinks yet to arrive. Bottle of Prosecco brought to the table for us to open. Had to get our own glasses from bar after waitress went MIA. When drinks did eventually come waiter spilt over my daughter. Kids food brought after adults starters (we’d asked for it several times by this stage). They did discount bill by 50% but just a terrible terrible experience. Avoid at all costs

    Service is not very good and slow. Plates are not removed when you finished eating. Food was ok but not delicious. Both my wife and I had slight tummy upset later that evening. I went there before, 3 years ago and it was fantastic but it is not any more. I will not be going back.

    A comfortable restaurant with red "leather" seating which reminded me of a 1950s American diner but much smarter. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient and the food was good. I had a very tasty chicken supreme from the a la carte menu for the main course and some of the others had the set menu which they enjoyed.

    Can't comment on value or food as actually did not get to eat at Tuttons because after waiting to be seated, and finally someone came to take our order, we waited over an hour for our meal. Our waitress didn't know what she was serving us and the manager tried to rectify the situation but by that time our evening was spoilt. We left, not to return.

    Great ambience, warm, welcoming and well decorated. Food was just ok but that was due to my uninspiring choice of fish & chips. The only real setback was the fact that the staff apparently don’t receive the service charge and expect customers to stump up more for their tip. I loathe the idea (if true) that restaurant owners effectively charge an additional amount whilst their staff have to rely on further customer generosity. My advice, if this is the case is to ask the restaurant to remove the service charge from the bill and pay a cash tip to the service staff.

The food was fantastic, well prepared and presented, hot and within reasonable time. We were never rushed or bombarded with, “Is everything ok?” We left with the feeling that we would return on our next visit to London and we shall.
