THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED L'Odeon Restaurant Review

: This large, bustling restaurant looking out over Regent Street is cleverly laid out---the long room with windows running down the whole of the front is divided by screens so you don’t feel lost. And for such a space, the noise level is refreshingly muted. The menu is a mix of styles, French-based with modish ingredients, perhaps a gazpacho with dressed crab, or grilled vegetable terrine with a tomato salsa to start, followed by confit of salmon with warm potato salad and aïoli, or pork knuckle with nutty Puy lentils and beetroot marmalade to follow. With vegetables as extras, prices can mount, which makes the set menus good value for the type of competent cooking that prevails here. The wine list can also mount sharply, but the service is good and the whole package delivers an elegant experience that keeps the sophisticated regulars coming back for more. Set 2-course lunch & dinner £15.50, 3 courses £19.50.
