Lovely meal with friends. Delicious food and great service
06 June 2019
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, 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.

I had a table for one on Friday night before a trip to the cinema. The menu is ribs, chicken, burgers. The restaurant is decorated with theatre posters and photos of actors. The tables have white table cloths. Decent food at a decent price in a good location for pre- and post-theatre eating.

Nice food but the mains were very small. The waiter said it was because we had the set menu. So if you’re hungry, order from the a la Carte!

Good service and food

Joe Allen never disappoints. Always good food & service. The £20 for 3 courses set menu is outrageously good value (go for the mackerel paté starter). Table 63 (bang in middle) is best for celeb' spotting, if that's your thing!
