Reminded us of La Coupole in Paris. Wonderful atmosphere. Cocktails first in American Bar then brought through to our table. Relaxed yet deliciously stylish too. Waiters/ waitresses all good. Food good. All in all a brilliant celebratory evening . Will come again.

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.

    Always good to eat at Zedel - great dining room and lots of atmosphere. To be honest, though, the service was by no means poor but not quite as personable as I have experienced in the past. But the biggest disappointment to me was the size of the portions which seem to have shrunk considerably since my last visit (probably 12 months ago). The quiche starter which used to be a full, round, and good-sized pastry shape has been replaced by a slice from a larger offering (and, to make matters worse, the pastry of mine was over-cooked to the point of being almost being burnt). The Onglet remained very tasty but small in size and the chip portion was minimalist. Disappointing. Two of my fellow diners both had to send back their Onion soup starter because it was only tepid in temperature. All in all, still good value but I would almost prefer to spend a little more and come away having had a more generous portion of food all round.

    Food very French provincial and very dull. Wine expensive - only French of course! I thought £24.50 for a mediocre 2014 Picpoul a ridiculous price. The starters of frisee, lardons and poached egg was fine, the hamburger was undercooked, the frites were good, the green salad had a tasteless dressing. We couldn't be bothered to attempt the puddings. Service was suitably French, friendly and efficient. I thought the much hyped Art Deco ambience was overrated and much of it was faux deco.
