A word from Grace
Sleek and sexy, this brand new restaurant in Piccadilly is part lounge, part futuristic 007 set which caters for everything from business breakfasts to leisurely lunches and late night soirees. The black, white and chrome cocktail bar is a super-stylish spot for blow-out parties and office dos, and the warm and earthy West End dining room is perfect for pre-theatre dining. Popular with a beautiful crowd of schmoozers and supermodel-esque fashionistas, Grace is the hottest new venue in the capital to sip and be seen and the affordable modern British menu includes classics such as the luxe tiger beer-battered fish and chunky chips with fresh tartare and mushy peas served in paper.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Got a TopTable deal, making it even more affordable, but after days of eating in touristy areas we wanted a more local experience. The food and drinks were delicious, and the staff were very attentive. I highly recommend them!"
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "This was a first visit. The restaurant is behind the bar, so it takes a bit of pushing your way through to get there. There were very few people in the restaurant (we arrived at 6:30 and left at 8:30 on a Thursday), which didn't bother my friend and I as we had a lot to catch up on. The service was good and we just had mains with a bottle of wine and the bill was surprisingly low. It's a useful central location and I may well meet up with friends here again."
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "I booked for 3 people on the day - needn't have bothered as we were one of about 4 tables occupied on a Tuesday evening. Even so, our waiter kept apologising for 'neglecting' us - again, no need! The menu was fine with lots of options, though noticeably shorter than the version online. Unexpectedly, they offered us 40% off as it was happy hour, so we had two mains, a side to share, coffee and a bottle of wine for £40 including service - great value for a filling meal with some decent options."
    dined on 25/03/2014
  • "We arrived at 5.50 restaurant quiet by 6.30 busy vibrant atmosphere, I liked that the restaraunt area was seperate from the main bar. Food very good value for money , service very good and prompt effeicient. This was a Birthday present show and meal from my husband."
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "We thought we would try a non-chain restaurant and Grace had a vibrant atmosphere and the drinks selection is very good. The restaurant area was very quiet when we went (7pm on a Tuesday night). For main course my husband had lamb which he thought was very good, cooked just right so it was juicy and not dry at all but it was quite a small portion. I had a risotto which I was disappointed with as it was quite boring and not particularly flavoursome. We had two nice desserts, a nice lemon tart and a chocolate brownie that were good value and a decent portion. Service was very pleasant."

  • "Went for pre-theatre meal. Staff were great. Good food."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Three of us dined at Grace and we all thoroughly enjoyed the meal. It was quite quiet when we arrived but people soon started to arrive and the atmosphere livened up somewhat. Food is very good value!"
    dined on 17/11/2013
  • "Good for pre theatre family meal. Three good main courses, one poor. Good service and value."
    dined on 16/01/2014
  • "Good food with great company. Lamb was lovely but could have eaten a bigger portion."
    dined on 16/11/2013
  • "Had a great time. Service could have been a little better did not seem to have enough staff. But the food made up for it - excellent!"
    dined on 13/10/2013
  • "The restaurant for some reason did not receive my bookings but they could still accomodate us; good food and good ambience and good value for money; not overly priced like many restaurants in West End."
    dined on 04/01/2014
  • "This is the second time we've enjoyed a pre-theatre dinner at Grace. We arrived at around 1715 as our show was due to start at 1930 and it was quiet, which we didn't mind at all. It soon got busy though and the atmosphere was convivial. Service was good, prompt and efficient. The pre-theatre menu was limited in choice so we went from the main selection - excellent sausage and mash with caramelised onion gravy for me, whilst my wife had a very nicely cooked plate of fish and chips. Portions were generous. Both finished off with a superb chocolate brownie and ice cream. Happy "hour" is between 1600 and 1900, so our drinks were at a much reduced price as well. Great quality and value (£30 total), especially for central London."
    dined on 02/01/2014
  • "I enjoyed the selection of mini foods they had! Friendly staff and great cocktails"
    dined on 29/12/2013
  • "I've been to Grace a few times now and I like the place but this time the service was dreadful. I hosted a dinner party with friends from Japan and the slow service was really embarrassing considering the place was practically empty. The wrong drinks came the table and when the food came we asked for extra plates than never arrived. It took a good 25 minutes to get the waiter's attention for the bill. I like Grace but the service needs to be reviewed. I'm thankful the restaurant was not full, can you imagine that?! I left red-faced with my friends hoping they will forget the experience."
    dined on 27/12/2013
  • "Very noisy as it is right next to the bar area! Great for a quick pre-theatre meal!"
    dined on 23/03/2013
  • "It was extremely loud at Grace. Understandably as this is a bar and it is Christmas Party Season, but I think for this to be advertised as a restaurant, it should be seperated from the noisy bar area. I was actually told this was seperate and am very disappointed it was not. My husband and I could not hear each other at all and actually considered leaving. I had to move seats to beside him to have a chance at a conversation. Bit disappointing seeing as it was for hubbys 30th birthday meal. However the food was good and very good value."
    dined on 30/11/2013
  • "The restaurant should be re-named GraceLess. Upon arriving for dinner we were informed rather rudely that restaurant was closed due to a private function and that only option was to eat in bar area. When I pointed out that this fact was not relayed to Top Table, in rather aggressive tone I was told that they had no control over bookings made by Top Table and that I should have booked directly with the restaurant. I did not appreciate the tone adopted by the manager and for that reason my party left. The manager needs a few lessons in etiquette and I would suggest going on a customer service course immediately! My party and myself will not be re-visiting and will also share this experience with others. The owners of Grace take heed!"
    dined on 24/11/2013
  • "I was very impressed by the service of our waitress she was very accomodating as we turned up very late and asked for more space! There were 11 of us.... The atmosphere was very enjoyable, and I liked the decor in there too, and the food was very very nice! yum yum!! Thank you chef :)) I would definately recommend this place to anyone wanting to go out for a nice good value meal right in town."
    dined on 23/11/2013
  • "Good service, tasty food, a nice atmosphere. Did the job!"
    dined on 21/11/2013
  • "We had to "fight" our way through the bar to get to the dining area (not that well sign-posted) and with a 9 year old in tow, it was a bit of a struggle as people don't generally move to let you through. Reasonable food and not bad service - lots of waiters all rushing around but not achieving excellent service levels. It was quiet as well so not sure what it's be like in the evening. Good steak however......"
    dined on 23/11/2013
  • "Been here lots of times and keep coming back, its a great place to meet, without the hoards of people, though this review may give the game away. This place deserves to be busier at lunchtimes, is always busy for pre- theatre. Good solid british fare at reasonable prices and good value wines, great house red ( Spanish) at less than £20 per bottle. We had lovely service this week again, and the fish and chips was top notch in its category - I live by the sea so I know good fish and chips!"
    dined on 21/11/2013
  • "We had asked for and got special deal on food and that made ti such a bargain. We had unhurried lunch with just the right amount of service attention. Definitely will be going again."
    dined on 20/11/2013
  • "We reserved a table at Grace for a lunch with clients. When we arrived we were told to go to the dining room, however, the dining room was being used for a private networking event. We were then directed to a room out back. This again was occupied. We returned to the bar only to stand there for a couple of minutes while the barmaid ignored us. My colleague eventually found our table. There were only about 3-4 tables occupied but for the only two visible members of staff this was too much and we spent most of the afternoon trying to catch someones eye. On the upside, the burgers and steaks were good, not amazing but they hit the spot. The chocolate brownie was fantastic. Our clients enjoyed the lunch but we won't be booking again."
    dined on 14/11/2013
  • "The staff seated us straight away, even though it was busy and we were 20 minutes late. When I saw how busy it was I was worried that we would be late for our show but our food came in less than 10 minutes, tasted great and was very reasonably priced. However, when me and my friend both ordered a glass of wine to drink, we were surprised by how much it cost when we received the bill-almost as much as the food, maybe it's just because I'm not used to London prices but I consider £8.50 a glass to be expensive when I'm paying a fraction more for my meal. But the staff were very friendly and made sure that we got to our show with plenty of time, just check the wine list prices before you order."
    dined on 09/11/2013
  • "From the moment we walked in we were made very welcome. We didn't have to wait long for our meal which was delicious. Bonus was the happy hour drinks. We would recommend this for a pre theatre meal."
    dined on 07/11/2013
  • "Great food, drinks, private dining rooms and also nightclub downstairs"
    dined on 03/10/2013
  • "A nice bar and restaurant. The restaurant is quiet without the music of the bar, service was quite speedy and the food was nice and good value. The reason for four stars rather than 5 is that one of our steaks had to be returned as it was cooked as ordered; however this was done without any fuss. Would recommend it."
    dined on 01/11/2013
  • "think my title says it all, Grace certainly looks the part when you go in, the service was very good and the food, although good, was the thing i remember the least. While i would go here again, I wouldnt be running!"
    dined on 31/10/2013
  • "Being close to Piccadilly, Grace is well situated for lunch and evenings. Service was friendly and efficient and we weren't rushed. The rib-eye steak was a bit disappointing but the lamb with glazed vegetables was both tasty and attractively presented. With the special offer, it was good value."
    dined on 18/10/2013
  • "Everything is in one place: bar, restaurant & club. All are kept separate."
    dined on 18/10/2013
  • "Enjoyed another nice pre-theatre meal at Grace. Service is good and food great value especially with a Tastecard! Happy hour from 4-8 and good deals on wine and cocktails. Incredible value, great location and fabulous ambience. My only criticism is that there are not enough vegetarian options. I will be back soon though."
    dined on 15/10/2013
  • "We've been here on numerous occasions and taken advantage of the 50% off food offer. The service has always been great, the food has been very tasty and the place has a nice feel to it. The location is great to. Always recommend."
    dined on 17/11/2012
  • "i have been eating at Grace for the last 3 years and i love the food everytime. I brought my friend here who has never been here and was in london for the weekend, the food was amazin gnad the staff were very nice. I would recommend this place to everyone if i could."
    dined on 05/10/2013
  • "A lovely, well located venue. We had a great table in a "booth" so quite private. The only real criticism would be that there were only two vegetarian meals on the menu, both with Feta cheese; the bottom of the menu says to ask the server for the veggie option, but these are in fact just the two feta dishes on the menu. A little more imagination would be great."
    dined on 27/09/2013
  • "The decor of the restaurant was gorgeous. Four of us went for lunch before theatre and we had a booth which was lovely as had plenty of room and were able to natter away with out disturbing any one else in restaurant!"
    dined on 22/09/2013
  • "We visited for dinner before a theatre outing and ordered from the set menu, excellent value and selection. The service was great and every meal was lovely. Would visit again with pleasure."
    dined on 22/08/2013
  • "We went here for a pre-theatre dinner as it was advertised as a great place for a 2 course pre-theatre menu. In reality it was anything but. On arrival the bar staff were unhelpful when we said we had a booking we were impatiently waved to the back of the bar towards the restaurant and left standing there. Once eventually seated the service did not improve, ignored for around 20 minutes followed by very slow service (at least one of us waiting 5-10 minutes on both courses whilst everyone else's had arrived). We had to request the bill no less than 5 times and almost missed our show. Not a relaxing or pleasant experience that any of us care to repeat. The food itself was pretty good but it was let down enormously by the poor service."
    dined on 23/01/2013
  • "A buzzing and lively atmosphere, with great service and fantastic food. Really good value made this a place we'd like to return to."
    dined on 17/08/2013
  • "We arrived quite early so the restaurant was empty but the general ambience of the restaurant was good, helped by the packed bar area. The service was excellent and the food was good although the menu had been changed from that published via Top Table so I was a little disappointed that I could not have the sea bass as I was expecting. However the steak was cooked to perfection and the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly."
    dined on 27/07/2013
  • "Really nice restaurant, good value and service. Would recommend"
