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.

Experience was okay but I wasn't blown away by the food. I ordered the salmon - I always have salmon wherever I go - I sent the dish back as the top was rock hard and the fish underneath was dry. The waiter then came back to say that the chef said that it was cooked correctly. The menu does say seared but not overdone! I really do not like restaurants where the chef contradicts the customer. The salmon was overdone and I should have had a new salmon made for me. Instead I was told I could choose something else, so I had a chicken dish.

My third visit to JA. Food tasty, well presented by friendly staff and the house white good compliment. This time seated in the first area of the restaurant which doesn't have the same ambience as the central area but still pleasant. Interesting decor with all the photographs on the walls, (go and see for yourself), great place to meet up.

Food and atmosphere was excellent, unfortunately the wait between the starter and the main course was much longer than the last time I dined their. The staff dealt with this well but as we were going to the theatre we had to miss out on the desert which was a shame.
