A very lively and interesting restaurant. Food very tasty and Service excellant

Joe Allen Covent Garden - this is a hidden jem, Food really good, we had the Mushrooms to start and the boys had the chilli "the best they have ever had". I had the sea trout so lovely. A great choice, glad we picked here.

Joe Allen, Covent Garden. Great location in the West end, 2 courses for £16 was ok, didn't think it was the meal itself was that great, just average. The range available in the set menu was extremely limited as well. All in all everything was ok.

Joe Allen in Covent Garden was great. The service was great and the food was good. The white rioja was very refreshing. A great start to our evening and we only had a short walk to the theatre. Another restaurant to add to our favourites!

Pre theatre menu was good - although the lamb chop was very very thin ! On the whole a good value meal, with good service.

Joe Allen Exeter St

Food very average. The place has a good atmosphere. The staff very attentative

Joe Allen was a good place for a quick but nice pre-opera dinner. The food was good if not distinguished (steak and fish both good quality) and the service was pleasant if impersonal - but that's par for the course with the quick pre-theatre dining experience.

Joe Allen is always fun- great atmosphere and tasty food. Caesar salad is a speciality. I had a delicious cod and saffron fishcake from the set menu which was lovely. Excited that banana cream pie was back on the menu- apparently it isn't permanent- I may start a campaign to keep it there!

Unfortunately the only thing I can be enthusiastic about in relation to this visit is the fishcakes that I had for my main course. Aside from that the feedback has to be "average". Disappointingly no live music and the service was hit and miss: either being checked on twice in 5 mins or waiting 15 mins to place an order for desert/get fresh drinks

A lunchtime visit to Joe Allen's on a damp May day was a very pleasant experience. The service was excellent. One of us had the set menu, one ate from the a la carte. All the dishes were good and the set menu was very god value. There is a good atmosphere, plenty of space between tables and no loud music - a quiet oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden.

We went on a Friday evening and the place was nicely busy, I knew it was a bit of a theatre hangout and this was confirmed when we were sat on a table next to Danny De Vito. Lots of choice on the menu, and as soon as our food came out I had order envy, my husband had ordered the lobster roll which looked great.

Enjoyed dinner with three friends at Joe Allens on Thursday evening. Food was very nice although thought it cheeky to be charged for two cappuchinos as they were not included in the deal - only filter coffee!!

Joe Allen's , in London's Covent Garden, is always excellent for a pre-theatre dinner or just a relaxed meal with friends. Had the fishcake, which was delicious (but hungry folk may need a side dish too) and the banana cream pie, which managed to taste naughty but light at the same time. The house wine is good value.

Good atmosphere, friendly staff and tasty food.

Joe Allen has a great atmostphere but the food needs some working to match it. The prawn cocktails were uninspiring like they'd opened a packet of pre-cooked prawns from sainsbury's and whacked it on a plate and the steaks were bland. It's not a cheap restaurant, so at least the duck confit and duck breast main course lived up to the price.

Joe Allen in Exeter Street London ideally placed for the theatre , so a pre theatre menu for two at £16 each is a bargain, just the job before Top Hat at the Aldwych. Immediately the buzz and ambiance hits you as you walk through the door. The staff extremely helpful and the decor charming. The food did not disappoint, both enjoyed a very well put together menu and looking around, many others were enjoying the fare as much as us. Will recommend as very good value and quality,

Joe Allen Covent Garden Oh dear oh dear what a dreadful meal. The special brunch menu was uninspiring and mundane. Not what we expected at Joe Allen after all these years. They have lost their way. Complaints were handled quickly shame it had to come to that.

Joe Allen was buzzing when we arrived after the theatre last night. Service was good, the prices offer excellent value, and the food was plentiful and served piping hot. Stars a-plenty if you want to rubberneck - always a great experience

A return visit to Joe Allen's in Exeter St didn't disappoint. Pre-theatre menu provided adequate choice of 3 starters (fish soup, chicken liver pate, Caesar salad) and 3 mains (inc fishcake, chilli con carne). Service was fast but unfussy and all courses well prepared. Went for wine of the month at £27 but excellent. At £90 for 3 including coffee this was an enjoyable and relaxing start to the evening with theatre nearby. All good.

Excellent food, great ambiance. We'll be back!
