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…
Tuesday - Saturday: 12:00 - 22:30
Sunday: 12:00 - 20:00
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.
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.
As always a great dining experience - great steaks, decent wine (try the Ara Pinot Noir) and attentative service. It’s akways a winner
Very friendly place and excellent meat! A bit loud but I recommand it for a dinner with friends.
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.
I was in t first time in this restaurant with friend. that was really amazing . especially the waiter was perfect. He explain everything for us kindly. we definitely go again.highly recomend
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.
Highly recommend this place - in particular the Prawns in Holy F**k Mayo, the picanha steak and the beef ribs. Fill your boots! Service also was strong.
Great all round
Meat (Beef Wellington) was cooked to perfection and dessert (Sticky Toffee) was sublime.
The service was excellent, really friendly and knowledgeable but also efficient. The cocktails recommendations were really good and the steak was a bit different and good quality
Great salad, superb apple pie disappointing fillet steak
Food used to be a lot better
Decent enough food. Quite pricey for what we had. The sides were amazing. Broccoli highly recommended. Cool set up. Menu lacks depth. All in all a good experience but probably won't be back.
Absolute fabulous service! Great food and reasonable prices. Couldn't have asked for more
Excellent as always. The chateaubriand is superb, and the Coravin option for the wine (fine wines by the glass) adds an interesting option.
