I visited the restaurant on a Saturday with a friend for brunch. The restaurant is in a great location in covent garden. It has beautiful interiors that sets a warm atmosphere. The food was fantastic! Service was spot on and all the staff were very helpful. We both had one main and a few glasses of bubble each. Was very... More

Excellent selection of breads and the post theatre menu had good variety of choice. The sea bass which was "catch of the day" was delicious. Lovely ambience and beautiful building and a good choice of available wine. Only criticism would be that the chocolate Carmel tart for desert although wonderful it was 1/2 a tart which had been cut in... More

Happened on this place after looking for somewhere to shelter from the rain. We were seated in the bar area as we didn't have a reservation, which was fine as we weren't looking for a formal meal. The high tables and decor made for a lovely setting for a bite to eat and drink. The food was very tasty, I... More

We hadn't booked but managed to get the last free table. The service was excellent, the staff were really attentive but not too fussy. The food was excellent. Three people opted for the three course pre theatre menu and the rest of us ordered from the A La carte. All the food looked and tasted fantastic. We will definitely visit... More

Had a meal here mid week before Christmas. Food and service was very good. Coeliacs well catered for. We ate from the pre-theatre menu and the fish and beef dishes were delicious - you need to order some extra veg though. Starters good but small portions. We had a drink in the cocktail bar downstairs before eating upstairs. Good atmosphere... More

Lovely cocktails in the bar down stairs, food overall was very nice. We were a little confused as to why the pre theatre menu was not available even though we specifically asked via the phone only an hour or so before. However the choice on the a la carte was great and suited all tastes We would return certainly.

Christopher's has been around for a long time and upon recently visiting again it's easy to see why. It's perfectly located for pre or post theatre drinks and dinner. The service is efficient and polite. The set menu is very reasonably priced and the food is still very acceptable. Ambience is lovely too. Hope they stick around for another 25... More

We had an early dinner with teenagers and this hit the mark. Really lovely cocktails (and mocktails), great service and extremely tasty food, even for the fussiest of kids. It's kind of pricey but that goes with the territory. We visited straight from shopping and felt welcome. Nice dining room.

Good dinner with a friend at Christopher's. The room is very nice and has views over the Strand to the South Bank and Waterloo Bridge. The amazing staircase up to the restaurant is one of the best entrances to a restaurant in London. Nice starter of raw tuna with avocado - good bread selection. Excellent steak with fries, salad and... More

Before the theatre, we had a dinner reservation at Christopher's Grill. We started with cocktails on the first floor. The drink menu had several pages specifically for martinis and cocktails. My new favorite drink is on the Classic Martini page, a Vesper martini. 🍸 From Ian Fleming’s the James Bond Casino Royale. A large measure of Gin, Vodka and Lillet... More
