I love this cosy place. Location is fantastic for Strand theatres, service is efficient, staff are friendly and the food is lovely. Pianist started around 7pm who played some great tunes.

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.

Nice meal as usual. The pre-theatre menu fits the bill at a reasonable price.

I always visit Joe Alllens when I go to London. Love everything about it: staff are great, food is great as is the choice of wine (not that I'm an expert). I was there on my own this last visit and thanks to staff, I didn't feel uncomfortable. Ambience is just perfect. My favourite restaurant ever!

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal on Saturday evening before going to the theatre. The staff were very friendly, attentive and efficient. Loved the classic prawn cocktail, bar steaks and to finish a superb sorbet and dark plums. Highly recommend Joe Allen
