Pre/post Theatre
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.

This was an early evening dinner follwing an afternoon event and so we arrived with good appetites. The welcome at the door was very good and we were shown to a very good table. Service is very efficient without being overbearing and we were very well looked after.

The menu is varied and there would be something to suit everyone including vegans, though that did not apply to us. We found a starter and a main was adequate even though we had said we were very hungry! The food was delicious.

Set menu for £19.95 was very good value. Portions were substantially and excellent tasty food. Service was great. A bit quiet on a Wednesday but was expected due to curfew guidelines.

You must make it really clear to them that you want the open table special menu - as they arent very forthcoming with it. While I couldnt say the food was outstanding it - the special menu is good value for money.

My wife and I visited this restaurant following a visit to the Shard. The meals were lovely but not cheap. The staff were very attentive and made a rainy evening in the city a very pleasant one. I would definitely eat here again.

I had the scallops, they were large and well cooked. The slow roasted pork belly was excellent, tender and the fat had been rendered out. The chocolate tart for dessert was very rich, I’m glad that I shared it. They need a non-alcoholic beer on the menu though. My wife had the poached egg for her starter and the lamb for her main, it was rare but well cooked, although she did trim off some fat from her lamb. Overall, tasty food, decent service and a very pleasant evening meal.

Arrived after a West end show, so quite late in the evening but reserving a table helped. Very friendly staff, service was quick and the food was delicious. Recommend the pulled pork belly and the sticky toffee pudding!!

Saturday 8th March
Had lunch here for the second time to celebrate a 50th birthday.
The staff were extremely friendly & attentive.
The food was delicious.

The only negative thing is have to say is to request that you remove the two wall lights in one of the toilet cubicles as I smacked the back of my arm on one as they’re in the completely wrong place.

2 out of 3 mains were excellent. My fillet of pork was a bit dry though my complaint was dealt with very positively.
Desserts very good. Service friendly and the restaurant was quiet.

I always feel a bit self conscious being single and dining alone but I was made to feel very welcome
I explained I’m unable to eat gluten; I had picked Tuttons as they stipulate which options are gluten free on the menu but the waitress was also really nice about it and helpful in suggesting pudding options. I couldn’t manage pudding as I was so full up!
Really lovely food and clean establishment
I’ll definitely return (and have pudding)

This restaurant has deteriorated. Normally it is very good, however on this occasion the service was appalling - over half an hour to be served, and the food was lukewarm and average. Clearly not the A team on. Will try Balthazar next door in future.

The setting and atmosphere make this a great place to have an evening dinner at Christmas. The food was good.
The service however let the restaurant down. Our waiter was surly and unresponsive with an overall poor attitude. We didn't receive one of the starters we asked for but it was included in the bill.
On payment, I expressed my disappointment with the service and therefore felt the service charge was unreasonable. I was at this stage willing to pay some of the charge however, rather than try and find out the issues, he took the bill away and removed the charge. No explanation and no apology. He was clearly having a bad night!
Therefore no tip for anyone involved in serving us that night. A shame as this let the whole place down.

Very poor service, rude and inattentive waiter. Took ages to catch anyone's eye and had to all get up separately to pay the bill at the bar as apparently they could not deal with different card amounts at the table. Very disappointing.

Nothing wrong with it but it felt a bit mass food and I could easily have made the same at home. They had run out of the vegetarian option.
