We’re the group behind Goodman, Burger & Lobster and Beast. We do a few things really well: meat, drinks and nice people! Zelman Meats is a modern day, easier steak restaurant named in honour of our boss, Misha Zelman (who you may find cooking from time to time).

Our first restaurant in a Soho alleyway was born out of our somewhat less successful fish restaurant, Rex & Mariano! We went back to what we know and fired up a wood grill, the Zelman Smoker and got in some slightly bizarre artwork from Butch Anthony in Alabama (@museumofwonder).
Now you can expect cocktails, craft beer, inventive wine options and plenty of beef.

We like low-lit, comfortable places with great tunes and decent people so you can get the most out of your brisket/Syrah/1936 beer! Expect more interesting bars and restaurants with this ethos, coming soon…

Too noisy,, waiter was too obsessed with telling a long story rather than listen and consult about the right selection for us, it took 45 minutes to order food!

I took two work colleagues for a meal at Zelman Meats and it did not disappoint. The Steak was utterly superb, perfectly cooked with a great range of cuts.

This was enough for me to leave a good review, however the service we received from our waiter was phenomenal. He was perfectly attentive and well informed regarding the cuts and wine selections. Thank you Zelman Meats for a fantastic evening!

Male server forgot to order our two appetizers and when we asked him about them. He answered in a smart tone and what would that be and sheepishly walked away

Extremely disappointing. The Picanha was recommended medium rare and that’s what we asked for. It came rare and cold. The ambience was like a youth hostel with leather upholstery, the terrible music too loud, the clientele (at 6.30 - maybe not very representative) a mix of tourists and passing trade. The wine list was short and extremely expensive. And none of the food felt like it was cooked with love or respect. One good point - the staff are lovely, fun, attentive and professional. But I can’t recommend it.

Love the relaxed ambience and the friendly staff!
Upon entering, the team informed each other that we were waiting by the door so we got seen to and seated quickly and our waiter was great at fixing our wobbly table as well as explain the different cuts and specials from the menu.
As we had a birthday, they were so kind to give us dessert on the house with a candle on top!
Not my first visit and definitely won't be my last.

The food and especially the meat at Zelman is top class. The picanha and ribs paired with the truffle chips and a salad gets you really far, but most other things I have tried are delicious as well. Cost around 60 quid a person for pre-dinner cocktails, wine and food.

We went for a quick bite before the theatre and have to say it’s one of THE best places we’ve eaten in London. The staff are great we got a very warm welcome and a really nice waitress the service was excellent, the restaurant is really nice a chilled atmosphere, smart decor and really cool artwork on the walls. The food is amazing highly recommend the prawns for starter and the Chateaubriand is the business!!

If you’re thinking of going don’t think twice just book it!

When I first visited the place, the meat was the best I've tried. However, when I came for the second time with my friends, the meat was too well-done. I don't know what happened to the place but more there should be more control of the chief who is cooking the meat.

Meat was way over cooked. When I go to a restaurant, I expect the kitchen to cook the meat the way I ask for it, and not impose on me how well done the meat should be.

The meat was not the same quality as what I have had previously from Zelman - I was really very disappointed. I would of expected more with a bill just shy of £200

Unbelievable steak! Chateaubriand and sliced picanha were both deliciously tender and tasty. Washed down wonderfully with a lovely Italian Red. Really good buzz about the place. Will 100% return to Zelman Meats

Very average. Although we were only the 2nd table in their the staff couldn’t really be bothered to serve and food took a long time considering. Menu was limited and all in all didn’t live up to the reviews. Would definitely not go back

OK, the food was good and its a nice restaurant and I would go again, but even for SoHo, which I am out in once a month, it was over-expensive.

So we finally got around to going to Zelman and we were not disappointed! We arrived a bit earlier but were shown to our table which was very nice (was a table for 2 but we had a spacious booth). Our waitress was great - when deciding on which steak to have between 2 of us, she suggested mixing and matching between the Chateaubriand and the Sliced Picanha which we did, and had the mushrooms and triple cooked chips which were really great! We had the Prawn Tempura as a starter, my advice is get more than one if you are feeling hungry (only 3 pieces). Dessert was great as well, the apple pie to share was delicious!

Oh and you have to make sure you order the Holy F*ck Mayo!

A nice twist for a Steakhouse and I will definitely be visiting again!
