Lush, extravagant and utterly compelling, the interior seduces you with the glint and wink of gold and marble. And all of this situated in the effervescent heart of Piccadilly Circus!
Of course, a restaurant is nothing without its cuisine, and with head chef – Matthew Foxon – running things in the kitchen, diners can look forward to an exquisite array of mouth-watering delights.
Matthew only uses the finest and freshest ingredients and when he is not creating alchemy in the kitchen, he is scouring the land for new suppliers. The tantalising 'Modern European menu, is clearly one of the main reasons why visitors both recommend and return to the restaurant.
If the walls could talk, they would surely whisper to you their secrets...
They would tell of when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle first imagined the meeting between Dr. Watson and the enigmatic Sherlock Holmes, in the Criterion Long Bar, they would describe the epic Hollywood production of 'Batman: The Dark Knight', as well as the magnetic presence of Russell Crowe as he filmed scenes for 'A Good Year'. The Criterion has been brought back into its well-deserved spotlight, and ensured that the hallowed walls will have many more a story to tell for years to come.
Together with the Speed Networking Events, the Criterion is once more innovating in its history by organizing speed networking lunches where many companies will be able to work and enjoy working in our unique space, not far from their own businesses, so there will be no excuse for not joining us.
As one of the most central London restaurants, we are delighted to become partners with Jim and John, and welcome all the "food lovers" members that will be joining us over the next months for more delicious events at the legendary Criterion restaurant!
