Modern European

In the heart of Theatreland, 28-50 Covent Garden is the face of the St Martin's Courtyard dining quarter. Hand-picked wine lists curated by passionate in-house sommeliers, this big-sister of the famous Marylebone brasserie features a plethora of accessible and high-end wines by the glass - some exclusive in the UK (such as the Chateau de Candie from the restaurant's own vineyard in the Alps). Menu is from Julien Baris, doing what he does best – simple, seasonal modern European cuisine, cooked from scratch on the premises, and of course, steaks, big and juicy, and lots of seafood. Design by Richard Green fuses 28-50's acclaimed no-nonsense wine-workshop style with more than a nod to all-things bling, featuring bubblegum pink and sky-blue velvet armchairs at every table. 3 dining rooms, a connoisseurs wine-bar, an extravagant champagne bar and a killer soundtrack make 28-50 Covent Garden is a must for pre/post theatre or a night of relaxed fun with good food and wine.

I booked here for mums celebrations on her 60th birthday, 28-50 was totally the best choice for the day of celebrations I had organised and this was just the cherry on the cake :)

From the hostess greeting, she was really wonderful (her name escapes me -apologies) but she was lovely x

Daniel was our waiter and he went above and beyond to make the evening so special!

The food was amazing! Just what we needed! Can’t wait to visit again!

I booked under the extended eat out to help out offer which made the whole experience great value for money. There was no compromise with the food and it was delicious! The ambience was great too considering the circumstances. My sister commented that it looked better in real life than on the photos on website so may be something that can be looked at. Overall no complaints. Thank you!

Was redirected by open table as Browns still closed
Nothing like Browns only 5 dishes each course on menu.
Was not what I would have chosen as an alternative

Responded on 11 September 2020

Hi Rita, Are you sure you're reviewing the right restaurant? I'm sure Browns is lovely but we're nothing like them. I don't think that OpenTable would re-direct one restaurant's customers to another. We have about 50 different choices on our menu - not 5...!

Chosen for a casual catch up with a friend. Half price on food still. The food is fine. The wine reasonable. The service very poor. 3 waiters. 4 tables in use. Huge wait for starter plates to be cleared and the mains were lukewarm when they arrived. Even with half off the food, I won’t be rushing back.

Get your act together folks

Wonderfully relaxed and pleasant evening here with delicious food and great service.

Despite turning up unexpectedly late the hostess and team were able to accommodate us and ensure we were able to order before the kitchen closed. The French Vanilla Rice pudding served chilled with caramel sauce and pistachios is definitely one to savour.

Thanks team for looking after us so well.

Food very good, they reserved for our group (six people) a separate room. All food was very very good (meat great, arancini and chorizo as well, perhaps a bit less intrigued by tempura artichokes; desserts also very good - had Eton mess and rice pudding). The wine we had (Hungarian red) very good too. Only issue was the larger proton of steak and fillet were not available, but actually the "small one" was actually really big enough as a main.

We had a very nice table in the quiet and very smart rear section of the restaurant, next to the window. Decor and atmos both very good - perfect for a lively catch-up dinner with a friend. Food decent - I had goats curd (very nice, fresh, but watermelon tasteless) followed by polenta (the only vegetarian main course, but surprisingly nice) and then chocolate orange mousse (far too sweet but I still ate it all!). Only quibble is that it was all rather slow. I couldn't tell if this was the kitchen or the waiter. When we chased our main course, it arrived immediately - I think it had been sitting under the lamps in the kitchen waiting to go out and our server had missed it. Waiter very friendly and nice but possibly not the quickest. Other than that, no complaints, and the 50% food offer made it astonishingly cheap!

The food was tasty and cooked just right for me and my friend. A good selection of wine and the glass of the Sancerre was fine, if a little pricey. We were well separated from other diners and the room temperature was perfect.
The only aspect I didn’t like was the bland monotonous machine-like background ‘music’ which was perhaps more appropriate for a fashion show or lap-dancing club.
