Palm Court Brasserie

Squaremeal Review of Palm Court Brasserie ?

A faithful servant of Covent Garden for many years, Palm Court is a quintessential Parisian-style brasserie done out in classical art nouveau style. Views of the Piazza are a bonus as tourists and the theatre types pile in for a keenly priced dishes ranging from Gallic standbys such as moules marinière, steak-frites and confit duck with sweet potato rösti to Med-influenced seafood linguine or pea and mint risotto. There’s also smattering of all-time crowd-pleasers (think pawn and avocado cocktail or battered haddock and chips), while desserts stay with the programme for crème brûlée or Valrhona chocolate tart. Set lunch and theatre menus are fair value at £12.95/15.95 for two/three courses, and there’s a good old English roast on Sundays. Afternoon tea is also served every day.

We went for lunch and the restaurant and staff were very pleasing and we were made to feel welcome, the service was quick and everything was well presented. The first course, chicken liver parfait and sourdough promised well for the following courses, and I enjoyed it very much, with the accompanying onion chutney. The menu choices are good, although I had specifically looked forward to the Calves Liver that was on the menu when I booked 24hours previously, but not on when we got there. However...

The meal was good and the service quick and polite. My only problem was the ‘low lighting’. I prefer to be able to see clearly when I'm eating, just my personal preference. Plus there were two steps to negotiate which was a slight problem in such lighting.

Best meal out in a long time.

We were greeted by friendly staff and had our own waiter for the evening. The service was good all night and the waiter was attentive, but not hanging over our shoulders every five minutes. Plenty to choose from on the menu, and all reasonably priced. Didnt have to wait for too long between courses. The food was fabulous and I would highly reccomend it to everyone who likes a bit of fine dining. We will definately be returning.

Friendly and attentive staff started our visit on the right note. Starters were good as were the main meals: tasty with lots of flavour and good portions as well. House wine was perfectly drinkable. Overall a very pleasant dining experience prior to a theatre outing.
