Very good meal at this old favourite - really good service and food in a buzzing environment that's not too busy.

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.

Customer reviews for Joe Allen - Covent Garden
(**** 25 October 2016 by Tim Jackaman from Canterbury
Been coming to Joe's for 35 years. First time the menu has really changed and I don't like it. Lots of old favourites gone. Tragic.
((*** 25 October 2016 by David from London
Good welcome from the maître d'. Other than that terrible service from the waitresses who don't speak English. So the simple order was not understood though the aforesaid maître d later sorted it out well. The menu is basic with the £25 menu and the burger really not that good compared to for example to that offered at Honest Burger. So overall not worth it even with the £25 menu

£23 for a three course meal and a cocktail - what an amazing offer. The meal was A1 and ghe service was excellent. Always loved Joe Allens - and think I always will.

A long, slow, relaxed lunch with a group of friends. The food was delicious, portions generous, and the "Food festival" set-price lunch was very good value. For us, as ladies-who-lunch, the leisurely pace of the service was ideal. Diners in a hurry might have found it a little too leisurely.

Really good as ever. Took 4 friends who'd not been before for post theatre dinner. All impressed. My favourite is steak and fries with peppercorn sauce. Staff friendly and efficient.
((((* 24 October 2016 by Kimberley Hall from London
Good space. Excellent service. Perfect for family dinner before a show. The ribs were great!
((((( 23 October 2016 by Dave Thorne from New Milton
Friendly professional staff, excellent greeters.
Food was all good, the black bean soup could have been warmer. I don't normally like desserts but the pineapple carpacio was superb.
