There may be better places to eat in London but going to Joe Allen is like going to meet your best friend. I have been going there since the early 1980's and it is still the same place it was back then. Great service, great food and decor that makes you feel comfortable.

A hidden gem surrounded by the shops and theatres of Covent Garden, Joe Allen is a highly regarded restaurant serving a selection of American and European specialities.
Ideally located for a pre-theatre meal or for dinner after the show, Joe Allen is quietly tucked away on Exeter Street just a five-minute walk away from Covent Garden underground station. Nearby theatres include The Lyceum, Novello Theatre and Duchess Theatre, as well as the Fortune Theatre and Theatre Royal. Joe Allen is also a great destination for a special brunch, lunch or dinner when shopping or staying in one of the hotels around Covent Garden and on the Strand.
Opened in 1977 as a stylish London dining venue for theatre-goers, artists, journalists and performers alike, Joe Allen has a relaxed, casual feel throughout. Today the healthy cuisine and friendly atmosphere attract an eclectic clientele of the West End's young and trendy crowd, romantic couples and families.

Great food, atmosphere! Our waiter was fantastic, charming and thoughtful. Did not mind that we changed our reservation from 4 to 5. We would go back again and get the burger that's not listed on the menu!

Friendly helpful staff who moved us to a warmer table (not by the door) instantly on request. Good service and lovely food.

Very enjoyable dining experience food and service excellent, the back ground man on piano made it extra special as don't find many restaurants in London with a piano being played while dining these days one of the many reasons I will be definitely returning
