Langan’s Brasserie is one of London's most legendary restaurants and boasts a great location in Green Park, just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly Circus and Hyde Park.
Renowned for its warm greeting and super friendly service, the Brasserie's Anglo-French cuisine has been a favourite with a star studded clientele that has included Frank Sinatra, HRH Princess Margaret, Mohammed Ali, Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, and Diana, Princess of Wales.
The interior is full of distinctive artworks and the restaurant has been a regular haunt of emerging artists including Francis Bacon and David Hockney.
The brasserie menu features traditional British dishes like Langan’s bangers and mash, cod & chips, and potted shrimps. The spinach souffle is a must. Among long-running London restaurants, Langan’s is a star.

Sadly the food disappointed and has not improved since the 90’s, hence overtaken by the competition. Service was rushed and surly. The seafood salad was insipid and swimming in oil. Steak and mushroom pie was ok but the mash was dry and unappealing in colour. Cheese selection was both light on content and quantity. The room maintains its charm and the atmosphere is buzzy. We enjoyed visiting Langan’s after many years away but unfortunately the food quality needs to improve dramatically if it is to return anywhere near the top of the rankings.

Several years since last visit but pleasantly surprised that the special ambiance and efficiency remembered from before are still there in abundance. Food and drink very good but strongest features for me were the warmth of service and surroundings.

Our first visit to Langan's - had just finished Michael Caines new book & decided was a 'must' as the book
was most entertaining & had many references to Langan's which he established back in 1976 I think.
Cracker situation right across from Green Park underground station & just one stop from Piccadilly Circus for Shows.We look forward to our return visit next year - we are kiwi visitors.

I always enjoy Langan’s. I can’t resist the spinach soufflé with the anchovy sauce for starters - it’s just delightful. The choice of mains is excellently British and very strong on fish (the fish pie is a signature dish). I had the duck which was cooked to perfection and served with stuffing and apple sauce.

Attended for husbands birthday is was pleasant convivial atmosphere. The starters were lovely (best spring roll I have ever had) and my husband enjoyed his veal. But the chicken I had as mains was tasty but on the tough side. We enjoyed ourselves and would probably go back.

The anchovy spinach souffle is awesome!! That is the reason we go to Langan's Brasserie.
Highly recommend the experience, however the staff are the hovering type so don't be intimidated if you feel rushed. Wonderful, wonderful restaurant, we have been going for years!! Enjoy it!!

Had a very pleasant evening with Great British food. Spinach soufflé was outstanding and all the food was cooked to perfection. For an iconic restaurant, the prices aren't outrageous and the excellent wines are not overpriced for Mayfair. But why oh why do they add a £2/person cover charge. Absolutely pathetic. One other point is that the restaurant is extremely noisy. While it has great ambiance, I could barely here my dinner guest across the table and there was no chance of a conversation among 4 people

We’ve been to Langan’s several times. The food has been consistent and good. The service this visit was very disappointing. Besides having many waiters standing around being inattentive, we were billed for 3 charges for making an online reservation (any charges for this were a surprise but there were only 2 of us so 3 was just wrong), wine by the glass was ordered and we were charged for a full bottle. And while both incorrect charges were corrected, no one was very sorry about their errors. This visit will cause us to rethink continuing our regular visits when in London.

My sister and I took my mum for her 70th Birthday and we all agreed it was one of the nicest restaurants we’ve ever been to - and we’ve been to many around the world! The customer services was exceptional, our waiter (Tim) was excellent. Attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious. The best thing for us was how all the team were happy and friendly! Classy and understated. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!

Unfortunately our experience was spoilt by the ineptitude of our waiting staff. I ordered wine and twice after a considerable wait was informed that they didn’t have the wine I had chosen, eventually it was third time lucky. They then struggled to remove the cork and once they had managed to spill wine all over my wife’s wine glass and the table. They then forgot my wife’s side dish. Which when it arrived was undercooked and not seasoned. A shame as it that it spoilt what should have been an enjoyable experience.

Very good food and excellent service made for a most delightful dinner. We especially appreciated the complimentary desert plate presented to us in celebration of our wedding anniversary. The beef roast with vegetables and potatoes was most tasty, and the Langan's chablis a good wine recommendation by the waiter.
Prices are a bit high, but that is to be expected in Central London. We would definitely return to Langan's Brasserie.

We were at Langans for a 40th birthday meal and as usual we found the food, service and ambience at its usual excellent standard.
To us there is something special about Langans which makes it a great place for either a meal for two or as in this case a party meal for 10.

From the moment we walked in we had really fabulous service, the atmosphere was very relaxed and as this was our first time we did not know what to expect, but all the staff could not have been more welcoming, the menu was excellent, our choice of the scotch beef fillet and the breast of chicken were perfect and the rhubarb panna cotta was absolutely fantastic.

Overall a really superb food experience, 10 x better than the Shard,would we go again , in a flash .

Finally a thank you to all the staff that night ,you made it a perfect birthday evening.

What a place !
Had forgotten what a treat it is to have dinner @ Langan's.
Atmosphere was great, food and wine good as always.
Service was amazing.
Our waiter had asked us if we were celebrating and I confessed that it was our Wedding Anniversary.
After we had finished our main course, he brought us mini-puddings served on a plate with ' Happy 35th Anniversary ' piped in chocolate '
A very special evening !

This was our first visit to the restaurant (following recommendation from a friend) and we had travelled to London from the Lake District for the marathon the following day. After booking on Open Table I rang the restaurant to request a nice table as it was my husband's birthday. We did indeed have a lovely table in the middle of the restaurant and were delighted when at the end of the meal, our waiter brought a plate of petit fours with a candle and the words "Happy Birthday" in chocolate. There was a superb atmosphere, the food was absolutely delicious (recommend the steak pie, fish cakes and strawberry pavlova) and the service exceptional. We truly enjoyed the experience and will certainly be back the next time we are in the capital. Thank you so much.

‘‘Twas my daughters birthday. So I booked my husband and daughter in for an after shopping treat.
They came home and raved about how lovely it was how good the staff were and how they’d like to go back.
So I’d recommend to everyone
