We were a party of four looking forward to a great seafood dinner. No question about it, both the food and its presentation were great. The problem was with the service. Despite their smiling faces and good intentions, our waitress and the other wait staff...More

Amazing seafood in a busy and buzzing environment. Excellent service and honestly haven’t had better seafood in London ever. Couldn’t rate it highly enough.

My lunch visit was distinctly average, service was acceptable but nothing memorable. I loved the original interior features of the restaurant although the toilets weren’t in keeping and it let the overall feel down. Our starters and desserts were much better in taste and presentation...More

Yes it is. The J Sheekey Atlantic Bar is next door to the J Sheekey restaurant, and is more informal.

In the heart of Covent Garden, J Sheekey is a fish and seafood restaurant offering the finest fish, oysters, shellfish and other fruits de mer. Discreetly tucked away on St Martin's Court between Charing Cross Road and St Martin's Lane, J Sheekey is a stone's throw from many of the West End's theatres, the cinemas of Leicester Square and vibrant quarters of Covent Garden and Soho. The Royal Opera House and Coliseum, Palace Theatre, Donmar Warehouse, Wyndham's, Duke of York and Noel Coward Theatres are close by, making the restaurant perfect for pre and post theatre dining. All fish is responsibly caught from sustainable sources.
