American Bar Restaurant
Disappointing as they only offered a set menu
We booked on the understanding that the menu on line was on offer
Only 3 tables dining 6 people in total
Food wasn't great at all
We enjoyed a lovely meal prior to the production of on your feet, good food, excellent service, and a short walk to the theatre 😁
Great place to meet for pre-theatre dinner although initially service was slow but did improve. Lovely menu and delicious puddings!
Great idea to link set meal with the show. We really enjoyed the Cuban menu. Our only disappointment was that the show finished earlier than expected and we were not allowed to enter the restuarant we had to wait 20 minutes. The service was excellent, restaurant lovely except for cheap looking wooden salt & pepper pots on tables. Would recommend to others.
An amazing calm environment to have good food before a show .
Particularly liked the fact you could have dessert or coffee during the interval
Great restaurant for pre-theatre dinner served quickly and timely by a lovely waitress. Would definetly recommend
We had a lovely meal prior to the theatre performance. We were properly looked after by the staff who were very attentive, helpful and welcoming. The food was fantastic, it looked and tasted great. The food was also delivered in a timely fashion. The dining room is a lovely wood panelled room and there is a calm quiet ambience. Hard to fault and all for a reasonable price. Highly recommended.
Excellent food, service and attentive staff.
We were celebrating my son & daughters birthdays and the staff presented their desserts with happy birthday piped on plates. A very nice touch.
Will definitely book again when visiting theatre.
Amazing restaurant hidden away on the lower ground floor. Absolute gem and the staff were very professional, attentive and helpful. The table was ours for the evening and we returned for desert and wine.
Will return again and again.
Nice venue to start your evening especially as you go straight to your seat afterwards. We were offered desserts and coffees for the interval but chose have them with the meal and not return from our seats instead.
The welcome, attentiveness and service were all excellent, the meal was OK but the better dishes all had supplements on top.
Unsure if we'd revisit, but glad we tried it and it added value to what was a great evening.
Great food, location and ambience. Perfect start to the evening !
Everything was very presentable the bar and had a great atmosphere the staff were very efficient and friendly had a really good meal. Would definitely come back
Great for the theatre. Desert and Tea/drinks at the interval with no crowds was just so nice.
The service was fantastic... that’s for making our theatre experience so special... xx
A traditional setting with good atmosphere, good food and pleasant and efficient service
The perfect start to the evening
The option of pudding and coffee during the interval is appreciated
Had a lovely meal. The waitress was very polite and attentive. Would not have thought of eating at the threatre until i was sent an email. Loved that we could keep the table for the interval too which made it a stress free occasion. Would definitely eat there again.
Service and atmosphere good, menu could be better for the cheaper deal, I had the Hake £5 extra but it was nice
Just a perfect restaurant if you are going to see On your Feet in the theatre . Service was excellent very attentive great if you want to return to your table for desert and coffee in the interval. The food was very good.
If you are viewing a performance at the ENO it’s perfect
A hidden gem that we will definitely revisit. Great service and value for money. A fabulous oasis at the interval to.
Really lovely food, friendly and efficient service
What a fantastic secret inside the London Colisium.
Such an intimate dining experience and superd food.
Marry and the waiting staff were so attentive, have not received such a professional and friendly service at 4 star restaurants.
Thank you so much for ensuring the night started with such a highlight.
Great find if you are going to see an event at the Colliseum. You can go back to your table at the interval for drinks or dessert. Good food too
Overall a very pleasant pre-show dining experience.
We pre warned them that we are lactose intolerant and as soon as we sat down were taken through the menu and how the kitchen could adapt most dishes to suit us. Brilliant! The menu was themed to the show and the food excellent - my cauliflower main was truly special. Great location and not that expensive considering. Definitely would eat there again and nothing to do with forgetting my wallet and my wife having to pay!
Good food but the service was really special. Mary & Nick could not have done more and were utterly charming. The perfect spot for a pre-performance dinner with pudding in the interval. Would thoroughly recommend.
Everything was wonderful. We had a nice table, the food was great and the staff very polite. Food good value too. My son had steak which he said was the best ever.
The food was excellent (only needed the addition of sauce, gravy or jus with well thought out flavours to make the meal match my favourite restaurant). Ambience, décor and manner of the staff were all lovely. The best part of it is that once you have arrived there is no stress about being at the theatre on time for the performance. Coming back to your table at the interval with the dessert and coffee ready for you feels like pure decadence. Wonderful.
Great place to eat for the theatre
Convenient, lovely atmosphere and food of a higher quality than I expected. We all enjoyed our evening.
Obviously very convenient for a performance, but the restaurant also ticked all the boxes for a very nice place to enjoy a good meal. The staff were extremely friendly and nice and had just the right balance of attentiveness.
Very welcoming decor with a warm ambience, staff were pleasant and very helpful, the service was first class, food was very tasteful and excellently presented which was themed relative to the current production. All in all a wonderful experience.
The food and service is very good, the setting is very nice
An ideal place to eat before a show at the ENO.
Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, great food.
Not to be missed.
Dinner at the American Bar before a show was a gift for my mother and a friend. The staff could not have been more helpful, the food was great and the bar has a lovely atmosphere.
It was simply excellent in all regards (if only the show had been as good!)
Superb seasonal food in a stylish, intimate setting, with excellent service.
fantastic setting. Food and service outstanding. Would recommend as a go to place to eat in London
Very pleased with the lovely tasty food and great service. Dessert during the interval. Everything great!
A wonderful experience! Both of us dining had food intolerances which had been notified at the time of booking. We arrived a bit early and were almost instantly greeted by the waitress who ran through all the dishes on the menu alerting each of us to the items we couldn’t eat. There was still plenty of choice and the menu itself was really enticing, themed to the Man of La Mancha performance we were about to see. The food was delicious, plentiful and beautifully presented. Back for dessert in the interval. Our dining experience made the whole evening for us and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the American Bar to anyone wanting to dine in style. First class all round.
