Lovely meal with friends. Delicious food and great service

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.

(((** 10 June 2019 by Graham from Newton Mearns
First of all the food was excellent.
This was our first visit to the restaurant and we were seated in the area close to the entrance. On going to toilets you have to walk through what I’d describe as the main part of the restaurant. The general ambiance in this area appeared much better than where we were seated. If I had known about this I would have requested to move to this area. This definitely affected our general experience which is a pity because as I said earlier the food was excellent.

I've been coming to Joe Allen for years. Ideal place for a lunchtime catch up with an old friend - which this was. The service is always good, the food is exactly what the menu says it is. In other words, you're reliable. My only complaint is how long it takes to go to the look, because you just HAVE to look at all the photos

It's a lovely setting, the tables are set out nicely, the walls adorned with pictures add to conversations, the piano paying in the background is just lovely. The staff are very friendly and professional, the food - delicious! The ambience - Perfect!

Excellent food and service. Difficult to find because of scaffolding around the area at the moment but well worth the effort. Steak frites a bit munchy but happens everywhere
