About

Established in 2008, Soho Zebrano is an exciting combination of cool after-work cocktail bar, comfortable dining and late night club. Situated on the site once owned by iconic comedian Peter Cook, Zebrano (formerly named Establishment) was home to the cream of the comedy and music scenes of the mid-'60s.

While the spirit of entertainment, supper clubs and the late night soirée has been thoroughly embraced by Zebrano, the venue has a contemporary feel.

With an amazing happy hour deal offering 50% off cocktails, £2.95 for selected beers and wines, and double measure of house spirits for the price of a single, Zebrano provides the perfect opportunity to sample both the cocktail list and amazing food.

When I arrived they didn’t have my reservation but managed to squeeze us in. We were on a very small table between two large groups so wasn’t that comfortable.

Do appreciate they could squeeze us in but quite disappointing considering we made a reservation for 3 and the table was not big enough

The Server seemed like she wasn’t there. The food tasted all the same, very bland. The drink I had was OK’ish. One thing I liked was the lightening in this place.

A good steady bet for a Soho evening casual soiree....food and cocktails are average to be honest, but a good selection and reasonable...

Booked to grab dinner before the theatre. Checked the menu online before booking and it looked like a good place to grab a quick bite to eat. Upon arrival we were shown to our table and given the cocktail menu, I asked for the food menu and was advised they only serve small bites as it gets really busy and the chef may not be able to cook what is wanted from the main menu so they would have to check. I was highly confused. Why have a main menu to be told we can not order from that menu. We left without having a thing and went to China town which was amazing.

Restuarant did not have a record of my booking. Not an issue as it was very quiet. Happy hour was really good. We ordered a few nibbles for the table to share and it was tasty. Second round of nibbles was very slow. Overall a good vibe and enjoyable evening.

Food wasn't particularly good but we were on a special deal with free flowing prosecco so it made the night very reasonably priced. I wouldn't go there for dinner, as it was loud and average food, but would go again with friends for a catch up and drinks

When we arrived for a pre-show dinner for my daughter's birthday the staff didn't have a copy of our booking on their system. Despite that they accommodated us well, the service and food was fantastic. Highly recommended.

The food wasn't amazing, but the bottomless prosecco made up for it, as did the service from a very lovely waiter called Marcel.

Food here could be better but as we went on an unlimited prosecco deal we weren't too bothered. Our waiter, Francoise is a true credit to the restaurant and he ensured we had a great evening.

We booked a table on a Friday night. This is the throbbing heart of Soho. Loud, buzzy and a mass of people. Food was more bar snacks than restaurant. Lovely big plates of meat or veggy to share was the best value. Not for a quiet or romantic evening out.

I've been to Soho Zebrano on and off for about seven years now, I can't believe that having typed it lol!

Anyway! I usually go there for New Years Eve celebrations and apart from some minor quibbles, I can honestly say those guys have looked after myself and whomever Im with EVERY time! U don't think I've been disappointed yet and I hope that will continue over the few years I've got left as I'm near that point where you have to start being sensible and going to quieter places though I'm not an old codger yet ok ! ;)

The Ambience of the Club is very good most of the Staff are very courteous and friendly (in that crazy environment sometimes when it's busy really Gold Stars all round!), even the Bar's security are very courteous with Zero attitude or malice it really is a nice place!
One unique perspective from me as a newly single guy, is obviously apart from some very glamourous and attractive ladies popping in, I have found the vibe in there to be the best of any bar, easy to talk to Women, accessible (not in a lurid way!) by that I mean they are willing to have a nice open conversation with no airs and graces, why? because they're there to have a good time just like you, and if you do make a connection with someone ? then that can only be the icing on the cake for you! It's by no means a meat market or knocking shop, it attracts a certain type of people, you will get the odd d**k but generally its a good assembly of folk, Good DJ's, reasonably priced and you can be sure I'll be there for NYE 2018.
Keep it up Zebrano,Keep it real like you always do!

More of a night club than a restaurant
Looks like most of their guests were there to party
Pizzas really nice although took ages to arrive and were cold
Don't serve tea or coffees

Well despite booking 2 days in advance they didn't have me on the list, however they did find me a good table and it was a great night. The happy hour is great, good food, good DJ and nice vibe. I am a regular there and will continue to be.

Booked on OpenTable expecting a restaurant, but this place is not a restaurant, more like a bar that's selling some poorly made food. The staff was friendly enough but this didn't make up for the overall poor experience. Ordered nachos, they came rock hard (possibly microwaved) most things we ordered came out barely warm and overcooked.

Friendly service, although we had a newbie waitress, she did well and was well-supported by the other staff. The food was tasty although basic and the drinks, including delicious cocktails, were good. My friend and I love to dance so it was great to have a DJ on a Wednesday night - we were only sorry he didn't start earlier! We will be back....

The staff were great, the unlimited prosecco deal was great but the menu options for the deal were substandard. Smoked salmon with lettuce as a main? 😏
Ah well, the drinks made up for it I guess. We'd probably go again though because the staff and atmosphere was so nice.

We waited 50 minutes for started (asparagus and egg) no egg came and it was cold then when we sent back still no egg. My friend's main came at the same time as the starter which was a well done steak with chips, chips were cold and steak was still bleeding. we waited 40 minutes for new chips but they never came. We left without eating a thing. The staff did not know what was going on and the music was so loud that they could hear me state that half my starter was missing and everything else was cold.

I only came to eat here because of the free-flowing £22 prosecco deal. I wouldn't have made the choice to come here otherwise. And that is a good deal but otherwise I can't be that complimentary about this place. The food is fair at best. Nothing special and not remotely memorable. The set menu choice is also...fine. It's edible but I could definitely make something far superior at home.

This is primarily a club...and between the decor, the loud music and the general ambiance that's exactly how it feels. It's also a little bit dated. They do have good happy hour prices and the staff and service was good but otherwise with the huge choice in restaurants in Soho, this will never be on anyone's radar for food consumption. They seem to do well enough as a club anyway so I doubt it matters.
