We’re the group behind Goodman, Burger & Lobster and Beast. We do a few things really well: meat, drinks and nice people! Zelman Meats is a modern day, easier steak restaurant named in honour of our boss, Misha Zelman (who you may find cooking from time to time).

Our first restaurant in a Soho alleyway was born out of our somewhat less successful fish restaurant, Rex & Mariano! We went back to what we know and fired up a wood grill, the Zelman Smoker and got in some slightly bizarre artwork from Butch Anthony in Alabama (@museumofwonder).
Now you can expect cocktails, craft beer, inventive wine options and plenty of beef.

We like low-lit, comfortable places with great tunes and decent people so you can get the most out of your brisket/Syrah/1936 beer! Expect more interesting bars and restaurants with this ethos, coming soon…

Friendly service and nicely spaced seating area means good for catching up with friends whilst not being too close to other diners.
Ordered the picanha and always love how good it tastes!

It's expensive. It is very nice but over £54 each for just a main course & 2 tins (330ml) of IPA each (£6 a can) is too much imho. The place itself was nice & the staff v friendly & helpful. Advice - Don't meddle with how they cook the meat! They do it medium rare...I wanted it more medium, what came out was almost well done so wish we'd said nothing.

Really good, with excellent service. We were in the back room, music might be a bit loud for some in the front. Only quibble was price of King Prawn starter, which I thought was ott. But other than that, would recommend to anyone looking for a great steak with great service.

Zelman's is about steak, pure and simple. You can get chicken, pork and seafood, but, seriously, why?

The steak is going to be perfectly prepared, the sauces complement the meat perfectly.

You’ll leave in a meat coma - we did! Menu is limited but our server was helpful in guiding us to order the right amount for the 4 of us.

Drinks are creative, wine list ample and food served interestingly.

It's all in the name! Zelman Meats does meat, and they do it very well! They also do some lovely fishy starters and great oysters, but this is really about the meat. Well described, good value high quality cuts of meat, appropriately selected wines to pair with the food, and lovely sides. Not a good place for vegetarians! Meat eaters: celebrate this quirky and authentic venue!

Lovely staff, provided very good service. We have chosen a Rib Eye from special, even though we ordered medium rare (and it was medium rare made) but it was still wasnt very soft and was chewy. So i wouldnt rate the steak well, but i will come again to try another type of steak, chips were outstanding and burrata starter was delisious

Unusual menu and presentation, meat ordered by weight and cut and served on a sharing platter. The quality was excellent, as were the side orders, the cocktails, and the service, however none of this comes cheap, so be prepared for the bill!

Good place for a steak, bare in mind that they only cook it medium/rare or well done, which was fine by me, choice between picanha (my favourite), chateaubriand and another couple of cuts of beef, the guy explain the menu to perfection.

Amazing service and top quality food. The staff were so fabulous - down to earth genuine people demonstrating the very best in customer service. We had the chateaubriand with dirty sirloin - courgettes and black truffle chips! All totally amazing. I'd eat there daily if I could ;-)

Zelman meats is a relaxed environment as steak places go, much more chilled than a hawksmoor, goodman or gaucho, so perfect for an informal work lunch with an lon time acquaintance.
We went for the Chateaubriand which was nicely caramelised on the outside and deliciously pink in the centre. The steak isn't quite in the same league as those you get in Hawksmoor but then you're not paying those prices and it's still very good.

Our waitress was really welcoming, she sat with us and explain the menu. The ambience was really nice not too busy and not too quiet. Food came out quickly without having to wait long. The cocktails we requested was not available however they made us an alternative. The prawns tempura was amazing and the holy f**k mayo was delicious. We had the dirty steak to share and I could not find a fault with it. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Narrow steak-focused menu - just don't go if that's not what you want ! Everything done well - good fries, decent salad, great steak made better by an enthusiastic and helpful server (Pedro) who was a great ambassador for the place. Not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but venue, quality of food and service made the value seem ok for a once in a while night out.
