My 3rd time here after really enjoying the previous ones. Despite booking well in advance and the restaurant not being busy my table was not ready. I sat alone awaiting my guests but waited 15 mins to be offered a drink. Food was OK. Not sure I will rush back.

Usual story is to check out Tripadvisor to see where is high on the list, but we were meeting friends in London and we were looking for somewhere close to Oxford Circus. Berners Street is a 5 minute walk between O.C. and Tottenham Court Road. A decent size and just a little dark, we were shown to our seats and... More

We booked for a family party. We were greeted warmly, the food choice was excellent and the quality really very good. It was my father's 80th birthday and the staff made it a special evening.

An absolutely lovely atmosphere with superb food and friendly staff. I usually only eat one or maximum two courses when eating out, but the menu and food were just so wonderful that we ended up having three courses! The staff were very friendly, funny and attentive which is impressive considering how busy it was. I highly recommend the peppercorn steak... More

I'd never previously booked a theatre ticket plus dinner package being concerned about the quality of both. I needed have worried as Stef's was perfect despite being fairly busy. It's a bigger restaurant than you might think with plenty of friendly staff who served us quickly and efficiently. We were in no way rushed, however, and thoroughly enjoyed the Italian... More

Lovely two course meal. Arrived slightly early which we were glad of as within 10min the restaurant is clearly so popular that the queue was out the door!! Good food & service even though was busy! Friendly staff.
