Arrived in the restaurant and was placed under the stairs which wasn’t a great place.

The restaurant was playing very loud music and nobody could talk. We got annoyed.

Had to ask the waiter 3 times for our drinks and got an attitude, she was too busy laughing about with her other colleague. (Eyes roll)

The food then arrived and it was not great.

Overall (find somewhere else)

we waited for almost an hour for our mains. the food was average. good as set menu for £20 but I would definitely not pay this price as an a la carte menu. desserts were not great and didnt taste like 'in house made'. the waiters were lovely though and offered us discount on our main bill for the wait time.

Lovely place and atmosphere but the service wasn’t great. Guy at the entrance was lovely but the waiter for our table just wasn’t interested in keeping our drinks topped up.

Unfortunately I was compelled to leave my first ever review following my visit to the Old Compton Brasserie. I’m back home much earlier than planned because the whole experience was just dismal.

I’d booked to take my mum who was visiting me from Wales. We’d had a lovely day and were really looking forward to relaxing over some food. On arrival we were placed at a table right in the centre of the restaurant which seemed to be in the way of anyone and everyone, I honestly would have felt more relaxed sitting in the middle of Victoria station during rush hour. This in my option is a table to put guests just arriving for a last minute table, not for those who’d pre-booked 10 days earlier.

Anyway, the waitress serving this table was lovely and when taking our food order I asked to move tables. After a chat with the Manager she told us that he’d see what he could do and we were eventually moved upstairs to a nice quiet table in the corner. Due to this request however, she had neglected to take our drinks order and when our food arrived very quickly after moving tables, with barely enough time to get comfortable we asked the waiter to order drinks to accompany our meal. These drinks arrived with us as we’d almost finished eating.

Although the food was nice, overall the whole experience was really poor. I certainly don’t expect things to be perfect, especially at the moment but you don’t mind provided the service is good. We didn’t get so much as a ‘is everything okay with your meal?’. This was made worse by the fact that the waiter couldn’t seem to do enough for the table next to us, where he was very attentive.

Leaving much earlier than planned, probably 45 minutes after arriving and feeling very deflated, my mum said “Oh I wouldn’t want to come back here, you can tell that because it’s busy due to the location, they don’t care or feel the need to make any effort with the service”.

Brilliant outdoor seating on the whole of Old Compton Street at the moment

Great atmosphere sitting outside, fantastic service and great offers on at the moment, £20 for a three course meal and a glass of Prosecco! They are also carrying on with the Eat Out to Help Out in September.

The set menu is really good for £20. The service and food is much better than what you pay for. We were served by Maria. C Reyes and she was amazing. Very helpful and kept checking up on us. Other waiters we saw were also polite and smiley. We were seriously surprised by how well the night went. Better than expensive places.

Dinner with partner and friends, service was wonderful from entering the restaurant until we left. The three main staff who served us were so friendly and helpful, we were not left waiting at any time and the quality in every sense was consistent. Our night was just the best and the food was amazing... I very rarely say everything was just right but I was saying it that night. Really impressed.

We did have to ask for the set menu we had prebooked. Good selection of food. The smoked salmon and the chicken wings were delicious. Great generous burgers. Very attentive service. Would just say these days and in a closed environment I would prefer if they wore masks. Having said that there is also the option to sit outside (but weather wasn’t great when we visited)

Very buzzy atmosphere and friendly fun staff. Food and drinks good, our only complaint was the hake dish which was way over-salted.
