PJ's Bar & Grill - Covent Garden
Our favourite place to eat.PJ's is rapidly becoming a habit! We dined again last Saturday and again we had a fantastic night. The food is always great, with a sizeable but not over the top menu to choose from. We've had numerous staff serve us and every time they have been knowledgable and really good fun when we've chatted. As always PJ's has a tremendous ambience with a good mix of clientele, some as groups, some as couples but always lively without being rowdy. I love this place, your always made to feel very welcome.18/05/2013 00:00:00Always NiceBeen there before and tried again. We did not regret with good value in food and services. The location is always plus for this restaurant as it is only a step away from Covent Garden. Well recommended.17/05/2013 00:00:00Beautifully presented foodThe food was very tasty, as was the wine. Service was friendly, but not intrusive. We all enjoyed the food (both veggie and non-veggie alike), and it was all very well presented. My only complaint would be that the portions were too huge! I would definitely go back in the winter, when I'll be more able to appreciate the heavy food on the menu.16/05/2013 00:00:00Excellent evening dining atExcellent evening dining at PJs Bar & Grill last week. We were all very pleasantly surprised by the standard of the food and the great value for money. We used the 50% off food deal but will definitely be returning as even at full price we would have all been very happy. Restaurant was full but very attentive friendly staff and no waiting for food. We will all be back very soon. Well Done!15/05/2013 00:00:00Post-theatre dinnerUsed the 50% offer for a post-theatre meal with some friends. Food was dependable fare but not necessarily very exciting. Waitress was lovely and always at hand for anything we needed. The venue is old-school bistro.
All in all, a satisfactory evening.13/05/2013 00:00:00Very good food and serviceVery good food and service and nice ambiance. Good location in Covent Garden and good value menus13/05/2013 00:00:00Bright and BuzzyThere were 4 of us for dinner. We found the staff really friendly, professional and helpful. Our waitress recommended a new wine not on the list which was excellent. We were on the 50% deal was saved us lots but was in no way limited (only steaks not included). We had a fun evening with good food, what more can you ask for? We've tried lots of different eateries in this area and this one is favourite now.13/05/2013 00:00:00Lovely meal - good value tooWent here with some friends - the meal was really tasty & our waitress was very sweet. One of our party is vegetarian and was a tad disappointed that there wasn't a vegetarian roast option. Otherwise it was great!!12/05/2013 00:00:00Enjoyable Sunday AfternoonPoint to note: The tables were fairly small so with a party of six we were not sure about how much room we had but as there were not many other diners at 5pm on a Sunday it was not a problem and the tables we well spaced. Apart from that one concern we really enjoyed our visit. Food was mainly v good, I had the baked cheese to start and Chocolate tart to finish and both were excellent.Chips with main were not the best but ok. Ambience was very good and certainly somewhere we would return to again with the TT dicount.12/05/2013 00:00:00Great place to meet and eatFound this restaurant via Toptable and delighted with all aspects, great location for the West End. We were made very welcome, the food was lovely and the service was attentive but not intrusive. We opted for one of the deals (and they have many on offer!) and saved £50 off the price of our meal - so great value. I would recommend PJ's to all and will add them to my 'must visit again' list for trips to the Covent Garden area.12/05/2013 00:00:00PJs is greatGreat value, good service, lovely for pre theatre dinner.11/05/2013 00:00:00end of a good 2 daysWe went to PJ's as the last part of a 2 day stay in 'the smoke'. We had a top table offer of 50% off the A la Carte menu.
The restaurant has a very 'buzzy' and relaxed atmosphere. the service was very good and. I had the chorizo scotch egg as a starter and I have to say it was a true experience the flavour was wonderful. the size of the homemade burgers being served looked large and mouth watering. I had the rack of lamb and my wife had the lemon sole, both were very good the waitress actually caught me with a bone in my mouth.
From the outside PJ's looks an ordinary run of the mill restaurant, but once inside it is a very good, enjoyable place in an excellent location with good food and atmosphere. Will defiantly revisit.11/05/2013 00:00:00very goodit is my forth time come back, i think this speak itself. so recommend this restaurant.10/05/2013 00:00:00Excellent meal and great valueI met with two friends at PJ's last Friday afternoon and was delighted by the level of service and warmth of welcome.
The food was delicious and incredible value with the 50% off deal. We all had starters and main courses and everyone commented on how good their meal had been.The wine list and prices were fine for Covent Garden and I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone.10/05/2013 00:00:00Great PlaceGroup of 5 for dinner. Attentive service, great food, brilliant atmosphere. Definitely on my favourites list!10/05/2013 00:00:00Service was very efficient,Service was very efficient, as it needed to be for this pre theatre meal, but remained friendly and attentive. The food was well prepared and very tasty, particularly the fish cakes and the grilled steak salad which was a delight. We benefited from the 50% offer so our meal also represented excellent value09/05/2013 00:00:00Made us very welcome - itMade us very welcome - it is a shame that steaks are excluded from the offers. However, the overall experience was excellent and we will use PJ's again08/05/2013 00:00:00Cute place with 50% off voucherCute place with 50% off voucher is great place for dinner in central London. Great service, great food..but it could be more busy.06/05/2013 00:00:00u will luv itExcellent food and service. Amazing deals on top table.05/05/2013 00:00:00Great lunch with friendsAfter spending a very good New Year's Eve here I met with several friends last week. The food was overall very good, although one dish had to be returned but that was replaced speedily. Very good service, a varied menu and reasonably priced wine. We were there for 3 hours and were never rushed.04/05/2013 00:00:00Pre show mealIntimate, yet 'buzzy' restaurant a few steps away from Covent Garden and Aldwych theatres. We arrived early, for lunch, as it was raining, and enjoyed a bottle of wine at the bar before ordering our food. Very good and varied menu. Would recommend the Thai Ceviche starter. Excellent value if you make use of the two for one offer.[note, this doesn't apply to drinks]. Service was prompt, and our waitress, Laura, polite. Would definitely visit this restaurant again.04/05/2013 00:00:00Lovely food, Polite Staff,Lovely food, Polite Staff, Short waiting times for food
Would definately recommend to a friend and return myself04/05/2013 00:00:00PJ's Bar and GrillToptable brought me there. The restaurant, food and service are bringing me back. A great find.02/05/2013 00:00:00good to come back againits my third time at the PJ, still like it very much.01/05/2013 00:00:00Covent Garden LuncheonIt was nice to re-visit this restaurant - disappointing only that it deserved to be busier. It has a nice atmosphere and ambient feel making it an ideal place to share intimate and business conversations. The food was prompt and delivered well - nicely presented and the service attentive without being intrusive. Certain to recoomend it and go back again too.01/05/2013 00:00:00Lovely restaurant, great serviceWent for pre-theatre meal - pleasantly surprised. Service was great and the food was lovely; we went on a deal for the a-la-carte so we considered it pretty good value especially for the quality.
The interior is very nice and is relaxing; the only surprising thing is that from the street you would be inclined to think it's a bar.The waitress was exceptional, with a friendly approachable manner - we will definately go back - it beats lots of others we've tried in the area - nb: The sticky toffee pudding is the best I've ever had!01/05/2013 00:00:00Great First VisitHad an early evening meal with two friends, this was our first visit to PJ's, but probably won't be the last. The restaurant is larger than it appears from the outside, but is long and narrow, so has a very cosy (but not cramped) feel. The atmosphere was already buzzing at 5:30pm. Food was very good - imaginative and delicious - and very good value with the 50% offer. Service friendly and attentive, overall a great evening and well worth a return visit.30/04/2013 00:00:00Always great!PJ's is a place that we keep coming back to. The food is consistently very good, simple yet with little twists for surprise. I cannot recommend it enough.29/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent ValueBooked for my mums 70th a pre theatre lunch which with the 50% off deal was excellent value. The food was tasty and the service excellent.28/04/2013 00:00:00Great atmosphereHad a fantastic lunch with friends. The pre-theatre deal was really good value and the food a good standard. The atmosphere makes this place stand out and as a result I will revisiting it shortly.27/04/2013 00:00:00Saturday lunch reunionVery busy restaurant, as you would expect on a Saturday lunchtime, but extremely friendly and accommodating service - one of our party (of seven) was late and they didn't mind delaying service of our meal, and we felt under no pressure to buy extra drinks/whatever whilst waiting. Similarly, we spent a long time over our meal, and never felt under pressure to vacate the table, but the service was nevertheless attentive, with all dietary needs catered for (including a 2 yr old who just wanted a bowl of steamed veggies and a bowl of ice-cream!)27/04/2013 00:00:00PJ's is perfect for pre/postPJ's is perfect for pre/post theatre. Busy, noisy and bustling but the service was good and the food was delicious. Not sure our budget would have stretched to full price, but with top tables 50% off food, it was excellent value. Would definitely recommend and go again.27/04/2013 00:00:00Z CarsGood food with an excellent atmosphere and smiling service. Had a slightly old fashioned french feel, which we liked and the tables were not too jammed together so you can have your own conversation. A definite find in this very busy area catering for theartre, tourists and business users. The food was good offering excellent value for money. (we were meeting our son for dinner who is currently at university in London ) Will definitely go again.27/04/2013 00:00:00Had a wonderful evening atHad a wonderful evening at PJ's Bar & Grill. Being a Friday evening, it was very busy, yet the staff gave personal attention to us. The TT set menu gave plenty of choice with all our dishes being enjoyed, and with generous portion sizes. Will definitely be returning soon26/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent venue for business lunchI have enjoyed an excellent lunch at PJ's four times now. Invariably the food is hot, delicious and nicely presented. The service is always perfect, with just enough attention from the staff. I usually have the house red which is very good and the standard lunch menu is varied enough to suit most tastes. The surroundings are elegant and understated, with a relaxed but professional atmosphere. Thoroughly recommended for a gathering of old friends or a business lunch.24/04/2013 00:00:00Table for four?4 of us had lunch at PJ's last week on their 50% offer. Very nice food , service competent and professional. Only gripe was the size of the tables. Unless you are a supermodel or jockey i defy any normal group of 4 people to sit and eat with any comfort. Staff happy to add another small table so we could 'spread', but in a full restaurant it would not have been possible.However worth a visit especially with Deal!.24/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent evening with relaxedExcellent evening with relaxed atmosphere, first class service and very good food. Toptable deal made it even better. Staff very friendly and accommodating.23/04/2013 00:00:00Great Evening at PJ'sWe booked to go to PJ's last week as a group of 6 girls on the 50% offer. It was great value and the offer allowed choices from the whole menu, important when we had a coeliac in the group.
The service was outstanding, we never felt rushed or like we were being moved on and were able to have a 3 course meal over the space of 2-3 hours.
Great value for Money and we would definitely consider returning.23/04/2013 00:00:00Good food, friendly staffWe have dined at PJ's a few times now and will highly recommend. The food is well prepared and well presented. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They also cater for coeliac sufferers with ease. Great place.22/04/2013 00:00:00Pre-theatre mealI like the decor of the restaurant and the service was good. The waitress knew we were going to watch a musical so the food came in a timely manner. I like the starters especially the Thai ceviche. 50% off is a real bargain and I would go again.22/04/2013 00:00:00Fantastic lunchWe booked on recommendation and were not disappointed! 4 of us had a late lunch, delicious food, plenty of booze, attentive and friendly waiting staff and a relaxed atmosphere! Perfect in fact!20/04/2013 00:00:00Amazing lunchWe booked a 50% offer for Saturday lunch - the food was all great, everyone cleared their plates, and amazingly two courses plus two bottles of wine for four people came to £24 per head - terrific value for a lunch served in a cosy, buzzy restaurant in the middle of Covent Garden20/04/2013 00:00:00Amazing restaurant!Outstanding food and cocktails. Well worth every penny. Can't wait to go back again.20/04/2013 00:00:00Long lunch .... !!!Booked usinga a 50% off food so value for money was fab. Staff were very friendly and it was a great place to meet friends not seen for a while and who travel quite far into London - it was so nice to be able to have a conversation with no loud music pumping out the leve of background music was just right.20/04/2013 00:00:00Post-Theatre DinnerHad a very enjoyable experience recently at PJ's Bar & Grill. Originally booked a different restuarant round the corner, as part of a surprise for my parents birthday, who actually let us down by losing our booking information! Have to say I'm glad they did now!
Good choice of food, as were able to cater for all adults plus a 15 year old, price turned out to be reasonable as well as most of the meals we happened to choose came as part of the pre-theatre menu. Waitress paid us a lot of attention even though the restuarant was quite busy and food all came in good time.
Good location, lovely ambience and will definitely be recommending to anyone looking for a pre/post theatre meal. Was thoroughly enjoyed by all and will be returning!20/04/2013 00:00:00excellent pre-theatreWe had the set-menu meal which tasted good , was served promptly and cheerfully. The place has a nice 'buzz'.19/04/2013 00:00:00Great place in Covent GardenGreat restaurant not what I expected, when I saw PJs grill excepting a American diner set up but was very pleasantly surprised, restaurant was lovely food was tasty, and staff were so friendly and accommodating.
Definitely be going again19/04/2013 00:00:00Outstanding service and great offerI booked a table at PJ's bar and grill in Covent Garden for a nice evening meal with 7 friends. The location is great, super convenient. When we arrived a little early our table wasn't ready yet, and still wasn't ready by the time it should have been. We mentioned this to the staff and they brought us all a prosecco on the house! The deal (50% off food if 2 courses ordered) was perfect and great value for money. We were supremely impressed with the quality and tastiness of the food. One of us was unsaftisfied by the amount of meat on her pork belly, and they replaced it swiftly with a delicious rack of lamb with absolutely no fuss. We were very impressed overall, everyone had a great time and we'll definitely return!17/04/2013 00:00:00Superb food and great valueWe did the 50% offer and this was across the entire menu. Food was great; expertly presented and tasted great. Portion sizes are pretty substantial too. Staff are friendly and efficient, and the wine list is good too. Doesn't feel like you in a chaotic tourist trap like many other places in Covent garden. Will definitely return :)17/04/2013 00:00:00Great DayFantastic Service, made myself and my guests very welcome, I couldn't serve myself any wine as they were always ready to pour!!! the food was out of this world, my advice would be to order something you wouldn't normally have, the chefs are great, only thing is the steak wasn't the best cut, however, this didn't spoil our visit and would recommend PJ's 100%.
Thanks for a great time!16/04/2013 00:00:00
