I use the group on a regular basis (Cirencester, Bath & Bristol) if I am up in London for a show this restaurant in St Martin`s Lane is a first point of choice. The staff here are excellent upon arrival and throughout the stay. (Rosie was so good on this occasion) The food attracts the same comment. A huge number of pre-threatre dinners and I have only heard similar comments from other dinners. I did say as much to the front of house staff as I left! Thank you David Bragg

We were given a very warm welcome on arrival, and everyone was exceptionally efficient, even though it was during a very busy post matinee/pre evening theatre time-slot. The meal we chose was, as always, excellent , nicely cooked, and presented, 'and' served 'hot', as it should be. The staff at St.Martin's are always bright, and breezy, giving the restaurant a very good atmosphere. Well Done! 10/10! (ps Why do all the Cote's I visit, mostly the London ones, not serve their White Wine (I usually have the house wine) really chilled?)

Great restaurant, excellently situated for a pre-theatre (or post-matinee) meals at several of London's theatres such as The Noel Coward, The London Coliseum, The Garrick, The Duke of York's and the Wyndham's Theatre. Great value (3 courses from £14.95) and friendly service but It can get very busy if you don't pre-book. The chain has recently introduced a "Prestige" set menu (£19.95 for three courses) which has a more interesting set of choices than that available on the "standard" set menu and it seems that the staff have been "encouraged" to push this, so you may not be offered the "standard" set menu unless you specifically ask for it.
