Flat Iron Covent Garden – Restaurant Review

The best way to celebrate two years together, you ask? Steak. Lots of it.

I have to admit I was a bit reluctant to try out this new restaurant because although its Shoreditch restaurants are so very loved, I’ve never walked past it without seeingΒ a massive queue, and you can’t book in advance. Although that butcher in the window was pretty mesmerising…

Soooo in order to pull the good girlfriend card, I left work as early as possible and got to the restaurant by 6, to add myself to the hour long waiting list. Met the boy at our favourite pub around the corner just in time for a drink, and got a text about 45 minutes later saying our table was ready!

Walked past the incredible bar in the centre of the restaurant while being seated, with a casual bartender chipping off ice from a big block of ice into an endless row of cocktails.

Then steak. That’s pretty much the menu, and I approved… big time.

The steak was perfect, the wine was perfect, the fries were perfect… and cheap too! For such a fancy meal, I was pretty sure they’d given us the wrong bill by the end of the night!

The meal was also rounded off perfectly, when the lovely waitress gave us mini steak knives, which were our tokens for free salted caramel ice creams!

We walked out very full and very happy, with salted caramel ice creams to go. By this time the waiting list had extended to THREE hours!
