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, which includes a large choice of egg-based options, such as omelette Arnold Bennett, and scrambled eggs with Cornish crab.

What a wonderful evening -- I owe virtually all of it to the wonderful barman who attended to me. The check says "sam p" was serving, so I'm going to say it was sam.
First, he made an absolutely impeccable martini, and even paused to inquire about my preferred dryness. It was wonderful. I noted the wonderful lemon presence, and he cut a fresh lemon peel and squeezed it over the back of my... more

My wife and I were just walking out of Covent Garden and spotted the restaurant. Went in and the atmosphere just felt right. The couple seated next next to us were finishing with some amazing looking desserts. So, we decided to split an entree (I.e., we are retired and ate lunch three hours earlier) and each have a dessert. The beef stroganoff was some of the best we have had anywhere. The... more
I'd been meaning to go to the NY location for ages and was excited when my friend suggested we grab dinner here. We got here around 7 PM on Friday and there was no wait at all, perfect. Our server was super nice and patient! We hadn't seen each other for years so he let us catch up a bunch and was nice about the fact that we hadn't even opened our menus the first two times he came around.
