    Friendly staff, tasty food and good value lunch menu. Great ambiance, would go back again next time I'm in London. Slightly off the beaten track but only a short walk from Leicester Square tube

    Welcoming staff. Had table for two hours pre theatre and plenty of time. Food was great. Our party had two steaks and lamb rump - all cooked perfectly to preferences, curry, ham and seafood linguine - delicious. Had one of the booths and it was very comfortable. As with all London restaurants can feel a bit noisy at times but we were able to have great conversations. Would recommend.

    we had booked the pre Theatre dinner but when we arrived they gave us the main menu, not the pre Theatre one so we had to ask but the Maitre'd should have noticed from our booking. other than that, the place was lovely and lively and food was great!

    I am a veggie, and I'm only speaking from this viewpoint. So, there is limited choice for vegetarians and vegans there. I ordered a plant-based burger, and it was disgusting, perhaps because I hardly eat any processed food. Everything, from plant-based cheese to ketchup, tasted like plastic. The only good things about this eatery were the matcha latte with oat milk (no matcha powder lumps found) and the ladies!

    We had a fantastic time with the table service and food being excellent. The only disappointment was, considering this was my first visit, was the welcome on arrival. The lady (in a red jacket) was slightly on the rude and abrupt side telling me I didn't have a reservation and was somewhat put out when I showed her my confirmed reservation on my phone. She scrolled through the reservation and then just said 'follow me' ... an apology would have been nice!

    Great place, nice friendly service, good food and not too expensive. We really enjoyed it no rushing either, a very relaxing meal. Nice clean toilets too.

    We regularly go to the brasserie as we love the food, service and atmosphere was great as usual starters was really nice but they have changed the lamp rump on the menu and it’s not nice at all, It used too be a piece of lamb with dauphinois potatoes and vegetables and now it’s just little chunks of chewy lamb which tasted very cheap and with what tasted like boiled potatoes and this horrible gravy! Will go back but never order the lamb again it was beautiful as it was don’t like why they changed it.

    The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, music is just right (not blasting customers) service is professional and food & drinks are good. It's just about good value for money

    Terrible service. Poor table management glasses and plates took ages to be cleared. The wait staff were difficult about drinks orders we kept getting told we couldn’t have one drink without the muddled cucumber and then they checked with the bar tender and it was actually doable. The second time I ordered the same drink they brought a classic margarita which had Tabasco rather than jalapeño syrup and the server assured me it was the same drink. When the bill came it was clear they never intended to make the same drink again as the second drink had been put through as a classic not the special margarita. My friend also had problems order, asking multiple times for a Tommy margarita and only on the 5th order was he actually brought this. Every other time it was just a classic. It seems like the staff are really low on cocktail knowledge and the bartenders don’t keep to spec. Being told you got what you order when you clearly didn’t is incredibly poor customer service. It was hard to get served in general despite reserving in advance. Water wasn’t topped up, glasses and plates weren’t cleared to the end and no one checked to see how I meal was. So even if we did have a problem we couldn’t communicate this. All in all just a pretty shoddy experience for such a high bill. We all work in hospitality and the last time we came to old Compton we had great service and everyone was very hospitable and the cocktails were exactly what we asked for. Will be thinking twice before returning.

    Excellent restaurant! We booked and were seated straight away at a lovely cool table as it was 30 degrees + outside. We told them we needed to be out for the theatre and was served very quickly. But to be honest all the tablets had very good service. The food was absolutely beautiful, from salad, duck, pork belly to buttermilk chicken burger. Chips were to die for. It had a lovely atmosphere and we will definitely come back to enjoy a longer stay.
