6 reviews of Tuttons Brasserie in English
-New potatoes practically raw
-Vegetables had to be ordered separately so they cost £7 extra for two people (already paying £20 each for a main meal) which is ridiculous
-Too loud to talk
-The gratuity was included on the card payment with no option to decline it, even though it was ‘optional’
-Cost over £60 for two mains, two drinks and one shared dessert (no starters or wine) which is unacceptable considering the quality of the food
-Basically a complete rip-off and the worst restaurant experience I’ve ever had – DO NOT GO!
Visited here with the boyfriend last week (who maintains that it serves the best coffee he's ever had!). It was alright. Couldn't fault the food. But I thought the service wasn't great, and I didn't appreciate having an "optional" 12.5% service charge added on to the bill. Probably would go back here but would likely try a few other places first.
Went here on Saturday for a friend's birthday and got to use the 'Vault' private dining room, which was perfect for a secluded meal away from the hussle and bussle of other diners (especially on a Saturday night).
The room was very cosy, with exposed brick work, wall lights and a large dresser on one side. We even had our own dedicated waiters who made sure we had everything we needed.
The food was mediocre really, I think it was more about the location/book-ability than for the food.
Watch out for the WCs however, as they are joined with Dirty Martini bar next door so they get very busy and full of young tipsy ladies gossiping/applying make up which you don't normally get in a restaurant toilets.
A good location for a meal after shopping or before the theatre. Tuttons sits on the corner of covent garden quite close to the station. The restaurant was quite nice although the seating could have been more spacious and the atmosphere wasn’t as good as other restaurants.
The staff were friendly enough.
The menu was limited but the food was quite nice and a little unusual. The service was quick and efficient but this was on a sunday night so not sure about peak times.
There wasn’t much of a view but there might be more to see during the daytime.
Very nice place, a look of elegance in the wonderful surroundings of Covent Garden.
I was there for lunch, as I was lucky enough to get main courses for two for £1 during a lastminute.com promotion. However, their usual prices are around £12-£17, which is reasonable, but the best value is to go for a pre-theatre 2 course meal for around £16, which has some of the main courses from the a la carte menu.
The mango and prawn salad (one of the seasonal specials) was nice, but they were a bit skimpy as there were only 4 small prawns. I had the sea bass which was well done, although a bit watery, and if I had to rate it I would give it a 3 out of 5 only.
Having eaten sea bass at a similar European-style restaurant called EastWay at the Andaz Hotel in Liverpool Street only a few nights earlier, it was a major disappointment.
I recommend that this place is probably good value if you go for their 2-course pre-theatre set menus for £16ish, but if you order a la carte you can probably find better value or better quality elsewhere.
Tuttons is a longstanding bar brasserie situated in a really nice part of Covent Garden Piazza. I wanted to mention this particular venue today,because as the weather starts to warm up is- the much coveted seated area on the piazza;the Terrace will be very popular with all. It has an area that holds 52 diners and is the ultimate place to grab a bite to eat while enjoying the sunshine and watching London go by.
They have an excellent range of main courses, costing around £13 on average. There is something for everyone be their preference vegetarian, fish or meat. The choice which is my most favourite includes Pumpkin and Sage Risotto cakes served with baby Spinach and Caramelised Red Onion; Honey glazed Salmon fillet with warm Potato and baby Leek salad; chargrilled Lamb steak with roasted Mediterranean vegetables and a firm favourite, warm Goat’s cheese salad served with Bruschetta and Apple chutney.
Daily specials are announced on the blackboard and are very reflective of the season and weather, or as much as they can be in the British summertime. Look out for the Asparagus and Hollandaise sauce which never fails to impress.
Tuttons is a happy place and thoughts of restraint should be left outside. This leads to the wine list which complements the menu well and offers a sound choice with the emphasis on New World wines. House wines are £13.95 per bottle.
It has its own separate in-house bar offering a variety of drinks and lighter bites. Whether you stop by for a coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening the bar is always lively and the staffs are a pleasure to chat with.
Tuttons is also an ideal place to meet friends and business associates and that what I like about it the most.. It is close to all the pleasures of Covent Garden and the West End and is an ideal port of call to rest from over vigorous sightseeing or shopping.
Finally, if you want to ask up to fifty friends out for a party you can hire the twin private dining rooms, beautifully decorated and very intimate under the main restaurant and have a wonderful time. There is no venue hire charge and the set menus feature some of the highlights from the a la carte menu of the Brasserie.
Just one more thing, all diners at Tuttons get free and priority entry to the seductively stylish new cocktail bar Dirty Martini, located next to the restaurant so you can extend your evening into the small hours.
