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…
See availability for 1,000 point tables
Sun 3:00PM - 8:45PM
We had the Zelman special so tried all the meats. Beautifully cooked. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Delicious meal with fantastic service. Would recommend
great food and service! would recommend everyone gives it a try
Great service and amazing meat
This was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The quality of the meats was outstanding. We had the meat plate with 4 different stakes on it. Accompanied by massive American Short Ribs. Delicious. Sublime.
At times it was a bit hard to get served on a busy night but overall the service was good.
Will definitely be back.
Waitress quite knowledgeable , ordered just the right amount
my mum came to visit me in london and i wanted to take her somewhere i knew served good food. they did not disappoint, she loved it! food and service always amazing. can’t wait to come back for valentines ❤️
Second time here. First came when it just opened a few years ago- amazing. Great meat and great atmosphere.
This time the meat was ok but nothing special. Short rib was overcooked, rib eye was fine. Atmosphere became too ‘clubby’.
Love goodman and their steaks are always great! Would not go back to this place though.
Excellent meal and great service.
Overpriced food ok but not worth the amount charged fillet steak bland no seasoning. Fillet cut into slices not a whole steak felt ripped off. Chips dry and I choked on one it was so dry. Drinks also overpriced.
Siamo stati a cena la sera di capodanno e abbiamo mangiato divinamente.
Servizio impeccabile e attento ad ogni richiesta.
Se ci capitasse di tornare a Londra lo riviseteremo sicuramente
Best steak and best sides ever. Great value on wine!
The hostess was amazing!!!! Super helpful and sweet. Always dancing !
Very good meat
Very good service
Good and kind staff
Excellent meat, excellent wine and most importantly excellent service
Zelman had been recommended to us and so we had high expectations. Our steaks weren't bad and the service was good. We visited on a Sunday lunchtime and it was quite empty and soul-less so really lacking in atmosphere. It was very expensive. We also noted they refused our OpenTable Dining Cheque which was disappointing.
Great service and stinking good steaks - as usual!
2nd time at Zelman and was not impressed - Steak wasn’t up to the mark and the app pie was served cold...
Excellent food and great wine selection too. Would defintely come back!
Noisy steak was underwhelming and just average, overpriced for what it was
Amazing! Definitely recommend it. Food and service are fabulous.
Fantastic food, fantastic staff
The rib was out of this world delicious
Had to request for some of the menus as there were not all provided.
Piece of meat was not tender.
Food is too basic for the price.
Waiter trying hard to upsell.
I got poisoned there by chips with truffles or by mozarella salad which were on the side of rib-eye steak and bottle of wine. The steak was good, no questions, service was good as well, but getting poisoned is the other absolutly unpleasant thing.
I’d recommend it if the special offer was on. My steak was VERY fatty though and my beetroot carpaccio a little tasteless. Very nice staff who were thorough to advise me in my intolerance-free food and to allow me to upgrade my chips.
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.
Outstanding service, great food and top wine list
Very good overall. Tasty food and excellent service. Polite and friendly staff.
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!
Wonderful service and atmosphere. Food is amazing
Carne dura e insapore , patate insapore (sapevano solo di sale), cibo e luogo “semz’anima “, no ambiance, molto mediocre
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.
Best steak in London. No discussion))
Great meal and service. This is part of Goodman’s so the food is top quality!
It was my wife’s birthday and the staff were amazing , food was fantastic
