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…
OK, the food was good and its a nice restaurant and I would go again, but even for SoHo, which I am out in once a month, it was over-expensive.
Great restaurant if you're into your meat - but you definitely pay for what you get (though the wagyu was worth the price tag!)
We South African's pride ourselves on a good steak. Zelman Meats exceeded my expectations. All the food was outstanding. The staff were friendly, fun and professional. I will definitely be back when in need of a good steak in London. Well done team
Really great meat and service. No idea why its always been relatively quiet (lunchtime). Will be back
Great place, been loads of times, food is excellent, was told the brownie has been taken off the dessert menu..... bring it back.....
Fantastic little gem in Soho. Really quirky ambiance. Staff are super friendly and knowledgable. Meat was delicious and cooked to perfection!
This place is great! Service, food, everything is excellent. I’ll come and order one of everything as it’s all delicious so it gets pricey but it’s so worth it!
So we finally got around to going to Zelman and we were not disappointed! We arrived a bit earlier but were shown to our table which was very nice (was a table for 2 but we had a spacious booth). Our waitress was great - when deciding on which steak to have between 2 of us, she suggested mixing and matching between the Chateaubriand and the Sliced Picanha which we did, and had the mushrooms and triple cooked chips which were really great! We had the Prawn Tempura as a starter, my advice is get more than one if you are feeling hungry (only 3 pieces). Dessert was great as well, the apple pie to share was delicious!
Oh and you have to make sure you order the Holy F*ck Mayo!
A nice twist for a Steakhouse and I will definitely be visiting again!
Third visit, good place for friends gatherings, simple and tasty meat and sides. Nice wines. Great staff. Recommended.
Gebriele was very attentive and a great help with our wine selection.
Returning to Zelmans for an anniversary lunch, and the food was just as good as what we had remembered it to be. The triple fried chips with truffle are the best chips ever! And the the quality of the meat and drinks menu are exceptional. Zelmans menu isn’t too fussy and the options are enough to leave you fully satisfied. The waiting staff are welcoming and knowledgable on the menu and there is always a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant. I would highly recommend Zelmans for a great dining experience.
Good meat, good service
Fantastic picanha and smoked rib. Attentive staff and good value
Great service. Excellent steak.
Took the waiters advice and had a little of everything great evening and reasonably priced for London
Great food and a nice atmosphere. Even better than Goodman's
I had booked the place for my wedding anniversary. The service and food were excellent. Definitely will come back for more.
Not as good as it was when it first opened. The lady on the front desk was unwelcoming. Food still good but just feels like it’s lost something
Undercooked steak but can’t doubt the price and service.
Fantastic informal version of up-market Steakhouse - perfect and knowledgeable service for both food and drinks. Incredible cocktails and delicious food for meat-eaters. The menu is not extensive, however what they do, they do extremely well.
A carnivore’s delight. It doesn’t matter what you order, it’s all good. The wait staff is attentive and explains things very well. The drinks are top notch. Be prepared for the meat sweats followed by a meat coma. Love this place!
Zelman meats is a feat option if you like Goodmans ones by the same group, it’s lesss expensive not as much choice but the sides were better than Goodmans . Great ambience nice staff
Having been asked several times if it was a special occasion I was disappointed that nothing was done. Steak was good but sides expensive for what they were. £60 odd per head was on the steep side
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.
Soho gem. The meats were delicious and perfectly cooked. I recommend the filet.
Brilliant meal at Zelman Meats after receiving a recommendation from a friend. Brilliant service - so friendly and attentive. Will be back soon
The food and service were excellent, already recommended to friends and 100% will be back asap!!
Great Meat, loved the ribs, would definitely recommend
The food was exceptional loved the sharing concept
Very good meat!
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.
Great steaks, great everything really.
Fun place with great staff who make sure that you don't over order.
Great. Everything was good, food service, drinks. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will return.
Lovely evening, nice atmosphere, great service and delicious food!
Excellent meal yet again from Zelman. Service is always great and the atmosphere is relaxed.
Fab food - great service - real quality - the whole experience made my wife and I happy!
I’ve been here five tones this year and it’s definitely my favourite restaurant. A real gem in the heart of soho, with fantastic food and amazing service. The staff are friendly and up for a bit of banter too!
Our favourite restaurant in London. The food is excellent and never disappoints. The service is fantastic; waiters and waitresses are always very friendly and attentive!
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.
