Elsewhere on the menu, find grill specials like chargrilled Cornish monkfish with panzanella salad, or grilled Cumbrian rump of lamb with English ricotta, as well as Italian classics like risotto of mascarpone and braised rabbit, and glazed beef shin ragu.

Weekend brunch at Hai Cenato restaurant sees menu staples joined by a breakfast pizza with sausage and slow-poached egg, and French toast with Amalfi lemon curd and blueberries. From the bar comes a selection of signature and classic cocktails, as well as an extensive wine list.

    Very close to theatre offering pre theatre menu which was well priced
    However it was not made clear when I paid the bill that service charge was included. Lesson learned to read bill very closely. I was in hurry to get to theatre! Left tip as well so turned out to be rather expensive. Food was good though. Wine expensive

    We had booked a pre theatre supper before going to see Hamilton for my 14 year old daughter’s birthday. Great looking restaurant but the huge glass windows meant that the first table they offered us was cold and drafty so we asked to move. A fairly poor second option was offered but it was a little warmer so we settled in. We had two courses, starter and main, and the food was delicious although the service was a little rushed and impersonal. I had mentioned in my booking that it was my daughter’s birthday but not a mention was made of it by the staff. I got the impression that ‘theatre supper’ visitors are a bit of an inconvenience, given the crappy tables around the edge and not given much in the way of service or attention. It’s a shame as our food was great but I wouldn’t go back.

    We went to Hai Cenato for dinner after seeing Hamilton, unfortunately we were over an hour late for our booking. However, I must applaud the manager and staff who could not have been more helpful despite the fact that they had already started to close down the kitchens for the night. We were encouraged to stay, the pizza ovens were switched back on and we had delicious pizzas and drinks, served by attentive and accommodating staff. They even appeared with an ice cream and Birthday candle for one of our guests without any prompting. Its amazing in this day & age and especially in London to receive such excellent service. The food was also really fantastic. Would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant as a great place to dine, but best to come before Hamilton as the show finishes later than expected.
    Will definitely return to try out all the other dishes on the menu.

    We had 2 for £12 cocktails and the set menu with a delicious ham and broad bean risotto starter, one very rich beef shin ragu pappardelle pasta and a four cheese pizza plus a bottle of wine. We shared the pizza and pasta. All the food was really good. Pretty good value for a Jason Atherton restaurant, although the set lunch at Social Eating House is still my favourite. It was warm so we sat outside. We had booked as we were going to the theatre and arrived at 17.30, but by 18.00 it was getting busy.

    We enjoyed a fabulous pre-theatre meal at this restaurant and appreciated that we could book from either the a la carte or the pre-theatre set menus, which suited the range of tastes in our party. We ordered three courses and every dish was presented tastefully and was delicious! Cocktails and wine were also fabulous and overall, the service was outstanding. We would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to another visit on our next trip to London!
