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…

Fantastic food, fantastic staff
Had to request for some of the menus as there were not all provided.
Piece of meat was not tender.
Food is too basic for the price.
Waiter trying hard to upsell.
I got poisoned there by chips with truffles or by mozarella salad which were on the side of rib-eye steak and bottle of wine. The steak was good, no questions, service was good as well, but getting poisoned is the other absolutly unpleasant thing.
I’d recommend it if the special offer was on. My steak was VERY fatty though and my beetroot carpaccio a little tasteless. Very nice staff who were thorough to advise me in my intolerance-free food and to allow me to upgrade my chips.
Too noisy,, waiter was too obsessed with telling a long story rather than listen and consult about the right selection for us, it took 45 minutes to order food!
I took two work colleagues for a meal at Zelman Meats and it did not disappoint. The Steak was utterly superb, perfectly cooked with a great range of cuts.
This was enough for me to leave a good review, however the service we received from our waiter was phenomenal. He was perfectly attentive and well informed regarding the cuts and wine selections. Thank you Zelman Meats for a fantastic evening!
Male server forgot to order our two appetizers and when we asked him about them. He answered in a smart tone and what would that be and sheepishly walked away
Extremely disappointing. The Picanha was recommended medium rare and that’s what we asked for. It came rare and cold. The ambience was like a youth hostel with leather upholstery, the terrible music too loud, the clientele (at 6.30 - maybe not very representative) a mix of tourists and passing trade. The wine list was short and extremely expensive. And none of the food felt like it was cooked with love or respect. One good point - the staff are lovely, fun, attentive and professional. But I can’t recommend it.
Outstanding service, great food and top wine list
Very good overall. Tasty food and excellent service. Polite and friendly staff.
Love the relaxed ambience and the friendly staff!
Upon entering, the team informed each other that we were waiting by the door so we got seen to and seated quickly and our waiter was great at fixing our wobbly table as well as explain the different cuts and specials from the menu.
As we had a birthday, they were so kind to give us dessert on the house with a candle on top!
Not my first visit and definitely won't be my last.
The food and especially the meat at Zelman is top class. The picanha and ribs paired with the truffle chips and a salad gets you really far, but most other things I have tried are delicious as well. Cost around 60 quid a person for pre-dinner cocktails, wine and food.
We went for a quick bite before the theatre and have to say it’s one of THE best places we’ve eaten in London. The staff are great we got a very warm welcome and a really nice waitress the service was excellent, the restaurant is really nice a chilled atmosphere, smart decor and really cool artwork on the walls. The food is amazing highly recommend the prawns for starter and the Chateaubriand is the business!!
If you’re thinking of going don’t think twice just book it!
Wonderful service and atmosphere. Food is amazing
Carne dura e insapore , patate insapore (sapevano solo di sale), cibo e luogo “semz’anima “, no ambiance, molto mediocre
When I first visited the place, the meat was the best I've tried. However, when I came for the second time with my friends, the meat was too well-done. I don't know what happened to the place but more there should be more control of the chief who is cooking the meat.
Best steak in London. No discussion))
Great meal and service. This is part of Goodman’s so the food is top quality!
It was my wife’s birthday and the staff were amazing , food was fantastic
Great food, great service, lovely meal
We love this place for steak!!
The food was wonderful and the service was exemplary. A great dining experience.
Meat was way over cooked. When I go to a restaurant, I expect the kitchen to cook the meat the way I ask for it, and not impose on me how well done the meat should be.
Lovely smokey steaks, moderately priced for London, nice venue.
The meat was not the same quality as what I have had previously from Zelman - I was really very disappointed. I would of expected more with a bill just shy of £200
Good as usual
Superb as ever
Love this place. Have eaten here several times. It never disappoints. Meat eaters heaven. We will be back
Unbelievable steak! Chateaubriand and sliced picanha were both deliciously tender and tasty. Washed down wonderfully with a lovely Italian Red. Really good buzz about the place. Will 100% return to Zelman Meats
It was a very good experience and was not expensive. The services and food were good and I would recommend my friends to go. One of my favorite restaurants when I stayed in London.
Very average. Although we were only the 2nd table in their the staff couldn’t really be bothered to serve and food took a long time considering. Menu was limited and all in all didn’t live up to the reviews. Would definitely not go back
Very bad service it took very long to get our food and when it came it was cold
The service was really good; the food average, it was better last time I went
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.
Meat bit on the cold side, wondered if it's because we had starters. Fab service.
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!
