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.

    The room is amazing, the staff were very friendly and professional. Sadly the food was not up to scratch at all, and was a deep disappointment. We had plaice for the main course, it was tiny, full of bones, and very bad value for the cost of around £15 each. The starters were all good. The main courses were shockingly bad. I wish we had sent it back at the time, but it was a special family occasion and we didn't want to ruin it. This restaurant has a good reputation, but that won't last long if it continues to serve food like we had on Thursday 28th April 2016. Sorry Brasserie Zedel, but I think honesty is the best policy!

    This was a pre-matinee lunch, so efficient service and prompt settlement were key. It was faultless in this respect and we had plenty of time to get to the theatre without a scramble. We went for the Prix fixee menu, which I had had before, and it was excellent. Our wine (Picou) was absolutely delicious. I can't wait for a reason to come again.

    Slick service nice atmosphere. But dish of the day was watery mashed potato, lumps of fatty meat, no greens, masquerading as hachis parmentier. Avoid iy.

    Wonderful design. food excellent. Modestly priced, generously delivered. Wine good value, although the same genres could have been better selected for a higher quality. We drank Alsace Riesling (lacked fruit, too cold). Fleury and Pinot noir. Service flawless: efficient, gracious and friendly. Your brasserie had frequently been recommended to us by locals, and their enthusiasm was entirely vindicated. I shall be passing on th good news, and will return next time I am in London.
