SquareMeal Review of Christopher's

Bronze Award

Christopher's may have celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2016, but the handsome Grade II-listed Victorian building has a longer history than that and was once home to London's first licensed casino. There's no need to take a gamble on the menu, which is a selection of reliably good stateside staples: juicy Maine lobsters and prime steaks hailing from the US, Scotland and Australia are the winning bets, but you'll also strike lucky with moist Maryland crab cakes or slow-cooked pork belly and Ibérico chop served with Boston baked beans and creamed corn. Lighter choices include fresh salmon carpaccio with a zingy tequila and key lime dressing, but you're likely to lose all will-power when you see the line-up of decadent desserts such as New York cheesecake or chocolate, peanut butter and caramel tart with espresso ice cream. Brunch is always a big deal here too, with readers rating the 'build-your-own pancake' menu, "delicious options" and "really lovely atmosphere".

You've gotta try the Scallops!

I've always wanted to try this restaurant, having booked it for my Managers for years. I wasn't disappointed! I had the scallops to start and steak for main, it was A-MAY-ZING. Seriously good food, it's nt cheap but you get what you pay for . The quality of the food and wine is the best I've had for a very long time.

Love this place. We didn't attend as theatre goers although this seems to be the predominate clientele. Its great to take the time and have some of their amazing cocktails.

Very good meal
In looking for a pre theatre restaurant near the Aldwych came across this restaurant. Excellent choice. We actually chose from ala carte rather than pre theatre menu. 3 of us had different cuts of steak and all were cooked perfectly. Great service, well worth another visit.

Simple but worth every penny
I have eaten here a few times and love this place. The menu is nice and easy and you know exactly what you are getting. Ambiance is really nice, this was a good place to take my family for a Sunday brunch. Cocktails were all very nice and the service was great. Nothing was overpriced
