The staff were aware that we were going to the ballet and so the service was very prompt and efficient but without the feeling we were being rushed. The set pre- theatre menu was excellent value and the food was of an extremely high quality. The restaurant had a nice ambience and although it was busy, the staff were attentive... More

The Brasserie on St. John Street is a family run restaurant situated near London's famous Sadler's Wells theatre. We went there for a friend’s singing event (yes actually in the restaurant) – and it was really nice! We had our own space on the 2nd floor. Food was really good – even if the dessert was the best! I had... More

We ate here as a group, prior to the Thomas Ades event at Sadler's Wells, close by. Service was very attentive, and handled the gradual arrival of the group (we ended up as eight) well. As the place filled up the noise level became quite high. We had the Pre Theatre menu. My first course of a venison terrine was... More

Visited with a friend on Sunday evening. Wasn't entirely sure whether the restaurant was open as the lights were on but nobody seemed to be in. But turns out it was just quiet. The food was very nice, well presented, not large portions and quite pricey for what you get but that said, it was enjoyable. The staff were attentive,... More

Like many others I ate here pre-theatre. The food is fine but it's clearly more a meal factory than restaurant. It's not a bad choice with the food and service being perfectly adequate without the surroundings, service, quality and quantity the price signals.

My husband and I visited the brasserie before seeing Lord of the Flies. The food was delicious the portions were generous and the service quick. For £17 .50 we enjoyed soup and salad starters. Followed by sea bass and fish and chips. Excellent value great location.

Very disappointing starter of smoked chicken breast just a lot of lettuce and mayo with very little rather hard avocado and a tiny bit of chicken. The Leg of duck was better and the white wine corked although they did bring us a replacement glasses. Service was good though and no time to complain if you are heading off to... More

This is the most charitable review of the Brasserie I could bring myself to write. Poor is probably being charitable. We chose the Brasserie because it was close to Sadlers Wells, where our grand-daughter was performing this afternoon. The welcome was excellent; we sat outside waiting for the rest of the party to arrive and were shown the location of... More

Close to Sadler's Wells was why we chose the restaurant and the menu sounded good. Starters very disappointing, lambs salad with cheese came with no dressing so I had to ask for oil and vinegar to make it less bland, smoked chicken was smothered with some kind of mayo. My main of chicken was ok but my husbands rack of... More

This is a lovely little restaurent, very welcoming with great friendly staff and a fun atmosphere. there is a lovely outside space which feels like you are not even sitting in the heart of london as you are shielded by the planted shrubs and kept warm with the outdoor heaters. I had the Sea Bass which was really lovely and... More
