3 of us dined at this restaurant before going to the theatre. Wow...what a find!!
We found the food to be excellent. There was a great selection of dishes on the menu but we all chose from the set menu...and were not disappointed. The staff were extremely friendly. When we first arrived (at 5pm on a Sunday afternoon) the restaurant was not overly busy but by the time we left (7:15pm) I believe all tables were full (even outside). We will definitely return to dine at the restaurant again when next in the area. Very good value for money too! Thank you to everyone for giving us a great dining experience!!

Much better service and food than on previous visit. Fish dishes were particularly commended for flavour and quantity. Quieter than last time. Not so crowded. Service prompt and courteous.

Salieri has been a favourite Italian restaurant of ours for many years. Service is always friendly at this family-run establishment. The set menu offers us just what we need and is good value. On this occasion, I enjoyed what was probably the best lamb shank I've tasted in London. If you're looking for pizza and pasta this is probably not for you but, otherwise, it can be happily recommended.

My friends and I went to Salieri Restaurant before seeing 9 to 5. Some of us had the set menu & others had a la carte. The portions were large and delicious. The waiter made sure we finished and paid in time to get to theatre by 7.30. I recommend Salieri for any occasion.

Fun restaurant for pre or post theatre experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinners consisting of a steak fillet cooked in garlic and butter and ravioli stuffed with mushrooms and cheese. Our desserts were very tasty and fresh as well. The staff was excellent and very pleasant. We will definitely return.

Disappointing service and food. We were there for pre theatre dinner so great positioning for Savoy Theatre. I presume all those around us were on a fixed price offer as restaurant very busy early. Over priced and waiters unfriendly. Shame

Salieri is a long-time favourite of ours and we always leave feeling we have been well looked after. This occasion was no exception. We opted for the set menu. My lamb shank main was delicious but my partner, who opted for the chicken breast in mushroom sauce, preferred the previous menu option of chicken chasseur. The only slight negative was that our waiter failed to get my warmed apple tart to the table in good time and I had to abandon it. However, I was very well compensated for the mishap. We will definitely return.

Given the uncertain service in some London Restaurants I know I can always rely on Salieri's. The food and ambience is good. Their opening times allow you to have a pre theatre meal in an unrushed way before you go to the theatre. Its location on The Strand is very handy

A comedy of errors! Booked for 4 people pre theatre 5.45pm. I'm not sure what was happening exactly but the waiting staff whilst very pleasant were in a total state of disarray. Starters arrived - the bruschetta was actually quite tasty but the arancini balls were tiny and hardly worth the wait. We then proceeded to experience a long gap with no mains in sight. Given the restaurant promotes itself as a pre-theatre venue unfortunately they could not fulfill the brief.

By 7.10 we advised that if the mains didn't arrive immediately we'd have to leave. One of the waiting staff was very apologetic advised that something had gone wrong in the kitchen, went off to check and returned with our main courses. Carbonara was swimming in cream and the fish looked very sorry for itself, also swimming in some sort of grey liquid. Fortunately I had ordered the chicken which was totally edible and the cannelloni was also fine. We wolfed down what we could and made a rapid exit. All the tables around us were experiencing the same; 'where's my desert? can i have the bill - we've asked you 3 times!' all sorts of chaos as people were desperately trying to leave to get to their shows.

Perhaps on another night Salieri would be fine as there are some positive reviews on here. The staff were extremely apologetic and money was taken off our bill which I thought was a decent gesture. It's unlikely however I'll ever go again.

The ambience is helped by a number of quirky objects around the restaurant, mainly related to London's theatres and the composer. The speed of service is well geared to the needs of those dining before going to one of the nearby theatres.

Sadly this lunchtime visit was not a success, unlike previous visits. Whether it was the very large lunch group that threw my modest set lunch, is a good question. The first course of deep fried haloumi was very oily but it was crisp and piping hot. The second course of calenolli stuffed with spinach and ricotta was a real let down. It wasn’t heated through, it was tasteless and I couldn’t eat it all...which is amazing for me,! They were very gracious about my complaint however.

Very disappointing. It is obvious the restaurant is under new management which accounts for the uninspiring menu and questionable quality of the cooking. Filling the plates with loads of food doesn't make a dish "gourmet". The only thing that was up compared to previous visits is the price. Our friends were frustrated with the waitress hovering over us and trying to fill the wine glasses up to the rim until she was instructed not to do so. All 4 of us agreed our next annual meeting will take place somewhere else instead!

I had a birthday celebration at Salieri. I called on the day before as we would be 16 people and advised that we would want to go for the set menu to make it easier, when we arrived we were told that there was not set menu during the holidays and they told us on the day that they would not accept multiple payments which wasn’t a great convenience.
Overall the food and service was good and I may go back, but I was very disappointed by those last minute changes

We returned after several years and found Salieri's to be just as pleasing as always; good food at a reasonable price; good service, particularly when attending the theatre soon after; a very communal seating arrangement which accommodated groups of a dozen or so comfortably.
Probably best to book beforehand though the turnover is regular and several people arrived during a busy early evening and only waited a few minutes at most to be seated - there's a hidden lower floor which is pleasant and seats another 30-40.

The restaurant did not have our booking and seemed quite put out when we sat at our given table for 4 when there were 2 of us, despite there being plenty of tables available. We didn't feel particularly welcomed and had to ask for menus when none appeared after we had been seated for about 15 minutes. The food was lovely as is the restaurant, however, I would recommend they spend time training staff to be more welcoming and attentive
