Championed as the ‘the only real brasserie in London’ by French culinary master Pierre Koffmann, Brasserie Zédel is a Parisian grand brasserie plucked straight from the 1920s, marrying opulent surroundings with astounding value. Smooth marble, mosaic tiling and rich wood panelling are dotted through this nostalgic dining space.

Awarded the top prize of 3 stars by the Sustainable Restaurant Association, the Brasserie Zédel menu features premium ingredients made to uncomplicated continental recipes. A plats du jour menu showcases an ever-changing list of timeless French favourites, while sumptuous menu constants include pan-friend whole plaice with lemon and new potatoes, or braised beef in red wine with bacon and mash.

A decadent patisserie menu offers a plethora of elegant sweet treats at Brasserie Zédel in London, while luxury French cheeses can be selected in pick ‘n’ mix fashion. A selective drinks list includes French aperitifs and rich coffees.

Evoking the Paris of yesteryear in the heart of the capital, Brasserie Zédel in Soho is a 2-minute walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.

    My first visit but definately not the last. The food and service was excellent and the surroundings delightful.

    I enjoyed the meal I had but I was very unimpressed by the astronomical rise in the cost of drinks at the Bar American since I was last there earlier this year. We charged £28.00 for two small whisky sodas!!!!. Even with 'London prices' that is simply a rip-off. We have had many drinks there before dinner in the past and enjoy the ambience,but £14.00 for a drink was disgusting and we will not be drinking at the bar again. It was more like £8-£10 when we were there last. I think it is ripping customers off and will warn all my friends, to whom I have recommended the brasserie, not to patronise the bar before dinner. A shame.

    What a shame the restaurant can't cope with the number of diners. We waied more than 45minutes for starters, then the soup was cold as it had been sitting on the side waiting for our waiter. Then another long wait for main courses. And they forgot it was my daughters birthday and didn't bring the birthday plate. THEY NEED TO EMPLOY MORE STAFF.

    haven't been to Zedel for a year or more but was pleased to find it just as pleasant an experience as before. My only reservation - common to every dining out experience I have these days - is that it would be marvellous to have a quiet zone with more sound-absorbent furnishings for those of us later in life whose hearing is deteriorating and don't like shouting!

    I was very disappointed by my experience at Brasserie Zedel which we chose for our wedding anniversary meal.
    It was not my first visit so I know that the service can be excellent.
    This time, it wasn't.
    Our reservation was for 2.30, it was not that busy. We waited for what seemed quite long a while before we were offered a menu.
    When the server arrived his attitude was very poor, he paid little attention to our requests. He made us feel quite uncomfortable in fact, he was very abrupt.
    We hadn't decided about which wine to have, normally a good server would assist with some suggestions, this server simply took the wine menu away and never returned!
    When our food arrived another disappointment, the lobster salad was two small pieces of lobster on a huge bed of lettuce, hardly value for money.
    I watched as our main course was left waiting in the servers area for quite a while even though it was clear we were done with the first course.
    It was very difficult to get the attention of our original server and eventually we were served by someone else.
    Overpriced average service.
    There are so many wonderful places to eat in London, we won't be going there again.

    Great ambience and nice food.
    Service good with the exception of how long it took to get a bill
    Coffee was the only disappointment- only over strong cafetiere in a brasserie ?

    Good menu choice. We had Formula and it was very good and great value . The building is fascinating with great atmosphere of Art Deco. Good attentive service.

    Had a very good lunch as a birthday treat for my wife. Slightly surprised that a gin and tonic was so expensive. I was asked whether I would like Hendricks but presume this was the most costly and I was not offered any alternative. Apart from that, all good. The Formule is great value and the service was attentive and good at a busy time. We had no problem when we turned up earlier than the time booked and were easily able to change table when we requested this. Thank you - we will be back.
