A French brasserie located a short walk from the main piazza in Covent Garden, decorated in 1920s art nouveau style. The narrow dining area is framed with French posters, giving the intimate space a slick of brasserie authenticity.
Palm Court serves classic French dishes like mussels, steak-frites and salad Niçoise. In addition to the mostly-French, old-world-skewed wine menu, there are aperitifs and classic cocktails, too.

Mediocre food, nice enough atmosphere but the restaurant is sweltering. The service really lets this place down. It is slow, rude, and is undoubtedly the worst service I have ever had in London.
Boy, was I scared. I'm French, so French restaurants abroad are not my first choice. But the post-theater menu offer was tempting and I gave it a go.
For starters, the setting is really nice, on the posh side. Lights are a bit too low to actually see your food, not a good sign, but pleasant after a show. Service was impeccable - most of the front-of-house staff is actually Italian, this is no place to show off your French foodie vocabulary, but the waiter was a true pro and very kind. Extra star for him here.
Now, the food. To be honest, I was expecting a lot worse. The portions were decent. The trout was tasty and looked overcooked but wasn't. It's really bistrot food, and there's nothing wrong with that.
I arrived at 10 PM after the show and while I was served quickly, no-one tried to rush me.
Don't expect miracles, don't expect an actual French brasserie. But honest food done seriously, it is. I've eaten a lot worse for a lot more money.
