The service was fantastic. I came with 3 friends and all the food was amazing!! Very easy to book a table online. Super convenient location for theatres. Would definitely go back.

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.

Good food, wine & service but far too noisy for a comfortable meal. Everybody has to shout to have a conversation.

Poor food and service totally indifferent until we asked for the bill. I had chicken paillard which was greasy and devoid of any seasoning or flavoring. Food seems to be put together with no thought for how it actually tastes. Would definitely not go again!!

The food we had was passable, i thought the ribs were a bit dry. The steak tartare was very nice. Great place but the food wasn’t anything to get excited about.

The service was amazing, staff were friendly and attentive at all times! Me and my partner were blown away by the quality of the food, we thoroughly enjoyed the 3 courses we had! The restaurant was set out lovely, dark lighting to set the mood and a wonderful pianist in the background. The table was laid out beautifully, overall I had an extremely pleasant visit at Joe Allen!
