Description: The unpretentious Covent Garden Grill serves its crowd of regulars and tourists a great range of steaks and other cuts, chargrilled to order from an inventive menu. Diners loll on the comfy sofas with friends, or hide away in one of the restaurant's private booths for a romantic rendezvous or a business get-together. There's a theatre menu for playgoers, and prices are surprisingly reasonable for the heart of the West End.

“Delicious meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Visited here on a Sunday lunchtime, the resteraunt was fairly busy but we had pre booked a table. Our waiter's customer service skills were excellent, he was friendly and efficent. I ordered the prawns for starters which tasted excellent, and the portion size was generous. For the main course I had fillet steak with chips and spinach. The steak was cooked to perfection and tasted incredible! The chocolate cake dessert was also excellent. Highly reccomended!

“Very hard to beat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

A lovely little place just off covent garden main. Probably the best steak I've had. Service was very good and the restaurant itself is very well laid out. You do not feel cramped like a lot if places in London. Highly recommend!!!

“Pre-theatre dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We had dinner here as part of a theatre package gift. There was no pressure to upgrade to a la carte menu. We had the Pre-theatre menu which was a standard part of their offerings. we had a choice of 3 items per course. We arrived an hour earlier than our booked time but they didn't bat an eyelid. The food was great - just right for an early dinner. The restaurant soon filled up so it was a popular place. It didn't look much from outside but it was contemporary inside and very clean. Service was very good. Would recommend.

“Fantastic - as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This is a great restaurant - a real hidden gem in london. The best things about the restaurant are the nice staff, great decor, good service and superb food. In all honesty, i'd say that the 4 or 5 times i've been here i've had the 4 or 5 best steaks in london - they have got better every time and both their sirloin and ribeye are great.

I've taken friends and family here several times to and they've all been very impressed too.

I'd easily recommend this, either for a business lunch, romantic meal or family dinner - it is affordable, delicious and the menu has a decent selection of non steak dishes too (which my friends and family have assured me are delicious too!)

“Amazing - best steak in ages ....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

We booked this Resturant for my sons 15th Bithday , so we were looking for something special .
We phoned up and they were very friendly asking if we had any special requests ; we asked for balloons and they provided us with this request with no issues at all .
When we arrived we were greater by Asen who looked after us 3000%
I often moan about how the service in this country has gone down hill but Asen went against the decline and reminded what good service is all about .
Asen was attentive and made sure we were happy at all times .
Our steaks were amazing . My wife had the sea breem that was also the best - served on the bone .. Desserts were also to die for .
We asked for the meal to be served up quickly as we had a show to go to ....
The restuarant took note of this and we had good food , top service that made our night complete .
Would recommend this restuarant and will be back . Steve
