This classic American surf ’n’ turf restaurant and cocktail bar has a “lovely atmosphere” thanks to its setting in a very grand townhouse, and has been a Covent Garden stalwart for almost 30 years. “Perhaps it’s showing its age, but it’s still reliable and in a useful location”. The food could be better, although reporters single out the “generally excellent steaks” for praise.

The “stunning interiors”, “great cocktails” and “wonderful central location” have made this smart American outfit, in a gorgeous and grand Covent Garden townhouse, a key destination for more than 25 years. Diners are divided over the quality of the food, although the “excellent sirloin steak” is recommended. Another plus: “it’s never too busy at lunchtime, so good for business”.

“Discreet, classy, American (so 1/3rd like Trump)” – this stalwart 25-year-old occupies a huge and particularly beautiful Covent Garden townhouse. The food on the surf ’n’ turf-dominated menu has always divided views – to fans “fabulous”, to foes “average” and “overpriced”. Top Tips – good brunch and downstairs bar.

The “exceptional, spacious and stylish” interior is the special draw of this “wonderful” Covent Garden townhouse, where “very good but very expensive steaks” are the best feature of its American menu. Other attractions? – a good downstairs bar; and “a fabulous brunch, with a great array of choices”.

Not up to the usual Christopher's standard....

"Not up to the usual Christopher's standard. Went for dinner post theatre and both our steaks had to be sent back as they completely overcooked. Replacement steaks were very good."
