My husband and I ate dinner here two weeks ago. The atmosphere is nice and the service was decent but the food was overpriced and low quality. Disappointing.

Nice food. Prompt service. Good looking staff! Also, not a bad selection of drinks. If you're looking for easy eating, this is the place for you.

My family of 6 (2 adukts, 2 teens and 2 children) went yesterday for our evening meal. We were seated quickly and we were asked if we wanted drinks. They arrived and we ordered our food. Our starters arrived and we had more drinks....then another drink...and another drink. The family behind us were complaining about how long they had to... More

We called here on our way to the theatre last night. We were served by a very friendly waiter who even asked if we were in a hurry to get somewhere and our meal was served quickly and was great. It's not smart, or fancy but the prices are good for London, and for a quick pleasant meal it's ideal.... More

The platter was superb lovely and hot and nicely cooked and was more... More

This was the first time I've ever eaten in a Garfunkel's and can definitely say I won't bother again. Visited because there was too long a wait at the TGI's but I can now see why this restaurant was so quiet by comparison. Service was fine but when the food arrived the chips were barely lukewarm, certainly not hot, and... More

We came here on our first night in london in April! I was recommended to go by a friend and thoroughly enjoyed it! We were seated outside where we could smoke! The environment was amazing! (Friday night) We each had a cider and ordered a burger and chips and spaghetti and meatballs! The portions were huge and we enjoyed it... More

We went there looking forward to a meal and how disappointed we were. The meal took close on an hour and it was only a pizza! It was ok but again it came out whole and not cut up in pieces! The waiter at least gave us 2 free drinks. Would not go back there due to my experience
