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.

So swanky, so glam - the attempted Shoreditch hipster in me was waiting to find something wrong at Balthazar. A lot of the staple London must-eats have disappointed in times past. But alas. This was the real deal.

My partner booked us a spot for my Sunday Birthday lunch here. We received a perfect corner table tucked in, in the middle of the restaurant - a perfectly romantic...more

I love the fact that this place was totally abuzz at 10:45 on a Friday eve. Most places in London are shutting down and shooing you out, but not here. Here we were welcomed in with open arms to be served and fed and not rushed out even as they were closing.

Great traditional French menu and wine. Bring on the escargot, steak tartare and dauphinoise s'il vous plait!more

This is a fancy food factory. The dining room is quite nice, but there are two main problems with this place:

1) The service: everything goes too fast. It is very clear that they have been instructed to get as many seatings in as possible. You barely get to sit down before someone is there to take your order, the main course comes directly after the first course, and they start clearing the...more

Setting: This restaurant is big and airy and it really feels like you could be in a mid-20th century French brasserie. The atmosphere is very relaxed and is great for brunch. Even the bathrooms are big and bright. Being in Covent Gardens this is a great location to meet someone from the other side of the city for brunch.

Service: The service was excellent. The staff were attentive, friendly...more

Balthazar was a saving grace for breakfast goodness.

It was Sunday and yelpers were hungry. We were in the Soho area and were going to head to The Breakfast Club, only to turn the corner and find a line literally down and around the block. Thanks but no thanks.

Luckily, about a 15 minute walk away, lay Balthazar - a spot I'd been meaning to check out. And they do breakfast!

We walked down...more
