Le Garrick - Covent Garden
Loved our pre-theatre dinner here on Monday night. I had the goats cheese salad to start and thought the few fresh beets a nice extra touch. I found the cheese itself a bit acidic but perhaps that is a price point issue. The standout was the Poulet Basquaise which was a special - delicious!!! I think I would have licked the plate if I could have, a total winner the meat just fell off the bone and the pepper/tomato sauce was beautifully seasoned. The atmosphere and friendly service make for a lovely setting. We will be back!
It was a lovely restaurant but the wine on the set menu wasn’t great and the medium-rare steak was very definitely undercooked.
The service and food are always 1st class here. 10/10
Lovely meal as ever. We introduced our friends to it, they were very impressed and said they would come again.
perfect in every way, staff are outstanding, our favourite in London
We have eaten here several times when we are in London, primarily going to an event at the Royal Opera House. Service is excellent, and we can count on getting to our seats in plenty of time. The food is good, not great, but tasty. I had the market fish with an olive sauce. The plaice was fresh, but the sauce, an olive tapenade, overwhelmed the fish. New potatoes were a bit cool, but tasty.
Excellent welcoming staff - always charming. Wonderful food always beautifully served.
Went here a few years back and had a super time so thought we’d come for a birthday celebration after a theatre trip.
Food was terrible - cold, flung on to the plate without any care for presentation. Wetherspoon’s food is superior and far better value! Is basically catering to clueless tourists.
Service was also incredibly slow.
Such a shame as the restaurant itself is cosy and full of atmosphere.
Un trés bon resto vraiment comme un bistro authentique français. Le boeuf bourguignon était délicieux. Je vous recommande.
Great atmosphere and food and very attentive service. Will definitely be back
Reliable and friendly bistro in the heart of theatre-land. You can expect good food and speedy service.
Very poor service. Average food. Unappealing atmosphere.
A great place in central London for a pre-theatre meal. Very reliable and very quick service - just what you want when you are trying to get out again quickly. Steak Frites was delicious as was the lemon tart.
Really lovely atmosphere in a great location! Onion soup was great.
Fabulous little place, never fails to deliver. So lovely to have a menu where you dont have to ask what the crazy things are, this is a true menu for the customer, not the chef's ego. Very reasonable prices especially when it is so good, service delightful (although my ice cream had possibly stood a bit too long before service, but I love this place so much I will forgive them that, and the taste outweighed any slight discrepancy in texture). Cannot wait to go again.
The quality of the food on my visit was not quite the standard I recalled from the visit some years ago. I was surprised the lemon chicken was served with the volume of very oily frites that it was.
That said, the staff were friendly, the selection of wines acceptable and the dessert was also good.
It was the evening of St. Valentine’s Day and the restaurant was packed. Nevertheless, we were seated immediately and the service, as too was the food and wine, very good. We had a most enjoyable evening.
I go all the time and have yet to have a bad experience. I recommend it all the time
Le Garrick has excellent ambience, buzz, and great and engaging stuff. Love their hearty dishes, their wine selection, and the half-litre carafe concept. The perfect place for a two-course meal. Deserts is an area where they can improve.
We have been to Le Garrick a few times a year for ages. It’s terrific and great value. The quality of food, drinks and service has remained consistently high throughout. Great atmosphere too. Ideally situated for a pre theatre meal.
Wonderful food and dessert at a very reasonable price.
Amazing food as usual, I've been coming here for over 20 years and never is it stade, always fresh and delicious!
Lovely ambiance, good food, tasty cocktails. A friend and I went for a pre-theater meal. We had a lovely time. The staff is very polite. Quick service.
I have eaten here several times and it is always excellent!
Excellent! Wonderful place to have lunch or diner after theatre
Pleasurable location, decent menu, good service. Will be back.
Le Garrick, a small authentic French Restaurant in Covent Garden wher for a reasonable price you can dine as if you were in France. Has a lot of ambience and the French waitress was a delight. The only bugbear and that lets it down is the pre theatre menu, more precisely the onglet steak. Thin, stringy and quite hard to eat even cooked medium rare.. which isn't something I normally do.. and is now, 2 hours later something I am deeply regretting. However this could just be me or just an off cut of meat. Either way, only thing that let down an enjoyable evening.
Le Garrick has for many years been one of my favourite places. We have loved going downstairs into the “crypt” and the service has always been excellent. The thing is...the food was poor.
I had a minuscule sliver of tasteless foie gras washed down by a WARM glass of sweet wine. All 3 of us had very disappointing confit de canard. When the chips are the highlight of a meal, you know there’s a problem.
We were there for pre theatre dinner but they forgot our dessert and the service was so slow we had to run to the theatre!
Restaurant on the snug side in the basement, however adds to the coziness and ambience. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The set menu is really good value for money and. Food arrives quickly and is hot. Had the onglet steak for main and was cooked very nicely. Recommend for pre theatre dinner.
We had the mussels. They were miniscule . Other than that a very nice occasion. Change your supplier or take off the menu.
Le Garrick is close to several theatres and so we went there for dinner at 6pm on a Friday.
The service was good and attentive and their recommendations in specials of the day where good (and in fact cheaper than what I had said I was going to order).
My only complaint is that as a table for two we were effectively in a corridor which meant it felt like we were in the way and the air conditioning started drinking in my friends.
Other than that it was a pleasant meal but I would rather not sit in the corridor again.
The staff were very friendly and the food delicious. Would definitely go back.
There's always a great atmosphere here - especially downstairs in the old cellar. It feels like being in Paris - and being young again... Lovely
Le Garrick was as good as it always been. Good food, wonderful friendly and efficient service. First time for my friend. She will be back!
Wonderful French restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden. Attentive and friendly service., delicious food and fairly priced. A greet place to spend my birthday.
Great location and friendly staff
The food was good - would definitely recommend
I was very disappointed as this looked lovely online. It is rather "tired" and smelled a bit musty downstairs, rather dreary. Service was slow (very friendly but slow) although it was very quiet. My friend disliked the atmosphere and the wait so much that we tried to cancel our order but it was too late. My friend's risotto was awful and she had to send it back - the waitress agreed it didn't taste right. My duck was nice but very expensive for what it was - ie just confit duck and green beans for £18. There are so many great places to eat in the area and I felt embarrassed I had chosen this...
I love it here.
Love this places. Ideal for pre or post theatre. Lovely staff, authentic, good ambience, lovely food
