Afternoon tea in this elegant 'old school' restaurant was very good. Service was efficient and you would believe you were in Zurich, Brussels or somewhere similar not Covent Garden. An ideal location close to a few known landmarks - Somerset House, Trafalgar Square, Royal Courts...More

We have eaten here twice now, once for dinner and once for lunch. It's very much a brasserie vibe, old school, but done well. Its staff are well presented, polite and really on the ball. Mood is busy, bustling, but not as cramped as a...More

We were there for a business brunch- my first visit. It really replicates the fabulous Wolesley, its sister restaurant in Piccadilly, with a near identical menu and high standards of service. We loved it. Great interior, wonderful service. Well located.

We had breakfast at this restaurant. The room and setting are stunning and does remind one of old continental grand Cafés. So far so good. The service in our case could be described almost as rude and not very knowledgeable. Every request is felt to...More

We go very often at The Wolesley on Piccadily. We decided to try The Delaunay as it is supposed to be the same restaurant. Indeed, the menu is mostly the same, and we could find the dishes we usually have at The Wolesley. Although they...More

It is very mixed and appropriateness of course depends on outlook. There are usually quite a few in business suits and ties, but there are also those in jeans. Anywhere in the middle would make you fit right in, casual but... More

Cab, if you don't know where you are going should cost about £5 from Covent Gareden tube, or if you are in high heels. Otherwise, it's about a 6 minute walk from Covent Gareden tube. Hope it helps.
