Bistro 51 was certainly up to the usual standard. Guests from Europe were suitably impressed!

We went to Bistro 51 in the heart of London on Saturday night, at 7pm. In retrospect it was perhaps a little early as the restaurant was quite empty, only filling up later on. The ambience was ok, nothing special, but the service was very good indeed, polite, friendly & attentive. My starter of prawns was very tasty & well presented, whilst my wife's French onion soup was a little lacking in depth. We had a lovely flavoursome beef stew & rich seafood rissoto and shared a wonderful dessert.

Although Bistro 51 is having some refurbishments done at the moment, it was still a lovely place to eat and relax. The food was very reasonably priced and the steak was perfectly cooked. Overall, i definitely recommend Bistro 51

We had a very enjoyable lunch at Bistro 51 on Buckingham Gate and would go back again!

Bistro 51, London SW1E 6AF Meal for 2: £88.22, £79.90+£8.32 servcice charge, odd amount I know. 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 glasses wine, 2 espresso, 1 dessert. Pepper&Tomato soup (£5.95) was nice enough, trout (£18.50) was a little over cooked but OK, best bit was the rhubard panna cotta (£6.50)! It is a restaurant that is part of The Crown Plaza Hotel, situated near St James Park. The decor and ambience is better than your usual Crown Plaza; to me it was very nice. Toilets via main lobby.

Had a client lunch at Bistro 51. The place was maybe 25% full and we were sat at the first table in the window to attract passing trade so we could have been given a more comfortable table. The french onion soup was very tasty and my client enjoyed his steak. My main - escolar on a bed of lentils - was miniscule and nothing special. The desert fruit platter was fine. The waiters were attentive - one was initially a little too in our faces but soon calmed down!

We just had dinner at Bistro 51 in Westminster and enjoyed the food and service. There was a variety of choices, so everyone tried something different. All was to our liking and we'll definitely go back again.

Ate lunch with a client as was convenient for their office. Good restaurant and excellent food at a reasonable price. Would recommend.

Great surroundings and the food was fab!

Bistro 51, London SW1E 6AF. Our party of 5 sat down at 2:30 for Sunday lunch, so were the only diners. Generally well-presented food, a not especially imaginative menu but done to a good standard. Starters £6-9, mains £14-17, more for steaks. Puddings all £6.50. Pinot Grigio quite nice (£22), Chilean Cab Sauv a bit overpriced at £25. All dishes were enjoyed but none were amazing. Lamb rogan josh a bit hot for dad. Service was fine. Nice and quiet, a good place for the older generation - ie us.

We had a lovely dinner at Bistro 51. The food was delicious!

While the food was good at Bistro 51 in St, James, London, the service was very hit and miss and the value only average. They didn't seem to know about our booking and the service varied between flustered and nonchalant. The waitress poured out the first glass of red wine and spilt it down the side of the glass and onto the white table cloth. She did not apologise. The wine cost £23 and could be bought in the high street for £6.50 - which means the restaurant can get for less than a fiver!

Restaurant at lunch time was quiet so lacked a bit of atmosphere. Food was delicious, menu either eastern or european. Chose a light starter and main course which were beautifully prepared, service discreet and good.

A rare experience - excellent food, discrete staff and a highly professional service overall.

I was given a card with my bill asking me what the Restaurant should change its 'style' to - I said leave it as it is, as you already have a winning formula (International Cuisine and first-class staff).

As the old saying goes, 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'....

My guest and I enjoyed our Bistro 51 lunch last Saturday: the food was interesting and well cooked. It was fairly expensive, I suppose, but it proved a good, convenient place for a quiet meeting - as there was almost no-one lese there! The staff were helpful and considerate - very professional. I'd certainly go again.

Bistro 51 is conveniently situated within easy walking distance of Westminster Abbey, Parliament and St. James" Park. It is very much more attractive in its new red decor and the food is above standard for an establishment of this sort. The service was more than adequate though it was, at times, difficult to understand the accented English of the service personnel! I shall return when next in London.

Service and food were amazing - as always.

Bistro 51, Victoria, London – As always the food is lovely but a little overpriced and service should be better, but I still enjoy coming here. Loos are miles away so don’t leave it until the last minute! Such a shame a little more effort from waiting staff and a little more attention to the menu (always looks very confused) and I would give it 10/10.

Bistro 51, Victoria, London – The service should be so much better for the prices they charge, but then so should the food. Don’t get me wrong, the food is lovely, but it should be about 25% less than what they are charging, I can eat better for the same price elsewhere. I was also a little confused as to what type of restaurant it is supposed to be, British? Indian? French? I would say this is more of a really nice gastro pub than a restaurant. Oh and the toilets are miles away.

The menu is really good especially fir veggies like my brother. Lacked atmosphere but it's probably more happening in the week rather at the weekend.
