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.

    Aside from waiter dropping some of my Temura vegetables on the floor and another lot on my new Ralph Lauren shirt. Leaving a grease stain. Thanks for that.

    Aside from that.
    It was ok !!!!

    I enjoyed dining Joe Allen. The best thing about this place is the service. Everyone is extremely friendly and accommodating. I made a booking for 2 then decided to bring an extra person. The gentleman at the door said it was no problem and promptly gave us a larger table. Though our booking was for a 2 hour sitting, we were not rushed out and left to enjoy our meal and drinks. The food was nice, though not outstanding. I would say it was good food for the price you pay. The goats cheese starter was awesome though! Not even a fan of goats cheese but this was tasty. This is a very lively venue so not necessarily ideal for anything intimate but excellent for catching up with friends. Had a great night.

    The food was delicious and I was very impressed with how they have managed to make the look and feel of it very similar to the original venue round the corner.

    There was a long wait to be served after being seated, but they gave a good service recovery with an honesty apologie and a free glass of fiz each as a way of saying sorry.

    They've moved premises but, apart from no longer being in a basement, the place is identical. Same cool atmosphere, same great menu (unfortunately the chopped liver starter, my favourite, disappeared years ago), the same great burger that isn't on the menu but can still be ordered. Excellent value set meals, too.
