We went for the set menu but found our first choices were not available, no mention was made when we were given the menus. Second choices were ok. Service was good.

A stone's throw from both the Lyceum and Aldwych theatres, Café Rouge Wellington Street serves authentic French food in a prime London location.

Part of the UK-wide group of Café Rouge restaurants, a range of traditional French dishes such as steak frites, confit duck and beef bourgignon are on offer. Amongst the tempting lighter bites, try a tasty croque monsieur, breaded camembert with cranberry and redcurrant sauce, or a classic caesar salad. A good selection of French wines, many from lesser known producers, is on hand to accompany the dishes.

Breakfast at Café Rouge is also a classically French affair. Offering croissants, pain au chocolat and baguettes, as well as hot chocolate, tea and an array of coffees, it makes a great start to the day.

A popular choice for pre or post-theatre dining, Covent Garden Café Rouge also boasts outdoor seating which provides the perfect spot to watch the world go by.

    Very busy as Trump demo had just ended. Food was disappointing but we just needed a pre theatre refuel. I had booked a special Bookatable deal which never materialised and we ended up choosing from the main menu. The tuna was over cooked to the point of being beyond chewy but the salad was nice as was the steak and chips. It was fast food on the run and fine under the circumstances. Nice staff.

    I waited 20mins between my starter and the main course, apparently the waitress forgot about my dinner. When I questioned her why the table after me already had their steak but I'm still waiting, she brought up a plate for me. I ordered steak with salad but she gave me steak with chips, I told her it's not my order, the funny thing is, she then said, you can try this and I will bring you salad. Totally mess.
    Food is average.

    Disappointing- starters unavailable: prawns; sharing board-anything with bread. We had telephoned restaurant to amend booking from 4 to 5 and front of house were unaware which was embarrassing for me and my guests. Starters did not arrive together. Waiters were doing their best; drinks were promptly served.

    Started off with the crab tion which was very tasty with two sourdough slices. Continued with the beef bourgogne an old Cafe Rouge favourite. This was much better than in some Cafe restaurants. The beef melted in the mouth the sauce was exceptionally good. Mashed potatoes nice and light went very well with the rest. No room for dessert.

    I went for a pre theatre meal straight from work. The restaurant was very busy but the staff looked sfter me and ensured I made the theatre on time. The presentation of the food could have been better but what I ate was good. I had the beetroot tartain followed by the steak frites. It was a good deal with a glass of prosecco. I think they could do with some more staff as the waiters were very busy.

    Lovely meal, good service, didn't have to wait very long for our meal to be served.

    Good resturant example of a worthy chain, experience spoilt by overcrowding and bookings in excess of capacity. On arrival (on time with our booking), our family of four had to wait 10 minutes to be offered a table for three, 20 minutes longer to receive a drink and food on an hour from arrival. Staff friendly but over worked, food itself was very nice and new menu dishes an advantage.

    Disappointed. When we arrived at the restaurant we were told our table was not ready (we had booked over a week in advance for a specific time) and they told us to go and come back in 20 mins. When we returned they prepared a table for us. We were given menus but told nothing of various dishes been unavailable now. So it was dissapointing when my first 2 choices were no longer available. Therefore I made my 3rd choice but noticed someone at another table enjoying what would have been my second choice, the muscles, perhaps if we had been seated at our chosen time......who can tell. Not what I was expecting for our meal out during a weekend away in London.
