The restaurant and service were both very good. The main meal was really tasty, but the desserts left a bit to be desired. Worth noting that the price on the menu they hand out says a higher price for 2 and 3 course meals than the one on the Restaurant Festival website, which made us only have 2 courses instead of 3, but in the end the price on the bill was the one stated on the Festival website, if we had known we would have gone for the 3 course and they would have made a little more money!

Chose this restaurant for a pre-theatre meal and was not disappointed. Service was really good and all four diners enjoyed the food we had from the fixed menu.

Waiter was very friendly and attentive as was the head waiter. Great service and experience

Atmosphere very pleasant, staff efficient, friendly & helpful and food good.
We were surprised, however, to see 15% service on the lunch bill, which we thought excessive! However it was adjusted to 10% immediately when we objected.
So, all in all, a very pleasant lunch. I would certainly recommend the Harlequin.

I met a friend for lunch. The location is excellent for the Holborn/Kingsway area and east Covent Garden.The dining room is spacious, so that one can hear oneself speak. It is also comfortable with traditional table linen. The food came within a reasonable time and our salmon was fine as were our starters. We were using the Bookatable deal of two courses and a glass of wine for £17 - excellent value, athough we substituted cranberry juice for the wine. Not trendy, but tasteful - ideal spot for a quiet lunch with a chance to talk. Service was friendly and prompt.

Very empty on a Monday evening so a lack of atmosphere. But service, food and wine was very good and excellent value on the Bookatable deal. The only grumble was the 15% service charge was too high,

Really nice lunch at a reasonable price. Remember anything outside of whats included in the deal is extra!
