The original Balthazar opened in downtown New York's Spring Street in 1997. Balthazar London is situated in the heart of Covent Garden, just across from the Royal Opera House. Housed in the old Theatre Museum, Balthazar shares The Flower Cellars building with The London Film Museum. (The permanent flower market was originally built for the Covent Garden flower sellers in 1870 and this space was used for storage.)

Founder Keith McNally has endeavoured to remain as true to the New York original as possible, where bistro food, good wine and friendly service are the order of the day. Balthazar London has the egalitarian appeal of the brasserie – something for everyone all day long: breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, as well as weekend brunch.

On a recent trip, went to Balthazar with a friend who had great food at Balthazar in the past. Possibly this was the one-off day but the food was very average. We both essentially got a steak and it wasn't great. The wine though was brilliant - we got recommendation from the sommelier and it was a great suggestion. Will visit again though since it possibly was just a busy Friday eve.more

Living away from the US has really made me miss brunch, so one of my agendas in London was to eat brunch (it is no joking matter). As I missed out on going to the SoHo restaurant while I was living in NYC, I redeemed myself (a little bit) by checking out Balthazar in Covent Garden.

To me, the interior is expectedly like an "Americanized" French brasserie, and the open dining space with many...more

This is for the grab and go side which had a beautiful pastry display (wanted it all). Had a Chelsea roll which was delicious. Really friendly staff as well.

Particularly love the NY'ers asking if this was the original location. Speaking to the great branding on balthazars part. the staff very politely informed them NY was the original.more

I joined Yelp merely to register my huge disappointment at Balthazar. It's the first time i've had a meal in London and felt so miffed afterwards that i wanted to do something about it - and for the record i eat out a lot and i'm in my 30s, so have eaten at a whole range of establishments.

I'll start with the food, which was very poor. The starters were average, and although the dressed crab...more

Everyone was talking about it so I decided to check it out for lunch. I must say I have never been to the NYC one.

The decor is respecting what the americans probably think it is (or was?) a french posh restaurant, a bit "ville lumiere" with a lot of big mirrors and lamps.

the food is good and the service is good and polite. My dad and I had a big steak with french fries, while my mum had...more
