A word from Quaglino's
Quaglino’s, the iconic restaurant and late-night venue in the heart of London’s Mayfair, has undergone an extensive make over at the hands of Russell Sage Studio and brings a contemporary European menu from Executive Head Chef Mickael Weiss.

The venue also boasts not one, but two exciting bars – a glamorous central cocktail bar in the heart of the main dining room and Quaglino’s classic mezzanine bar overlooking the restaurant – both serving tipples with a taste of the past, heavily focusing on classic and champagne cocktails, while the 300 bin wine list showcases a balanced mix of Old and New World references.

Later in the evening, the restaurant transforms into a late-night, live-music mecca; one of the only venues in Mayfair open to the public with a late-night license and free entry, perfect for partying into the early hours.

    We visited Quaglino's as a post birthday treat this weekend, on the pre-theatre 3 courses deal. Unfortunately, due to a demonstration in the streets (unbeknown to us), traffic was horrendous and we were late. I had called ahead from our taxi to say this and they were fine, but as soon as I entered I was told that 'senior management had let them know that they would strictly not be able to honour our offer'. It would've been nice if they had said this on the phone, but hey! First impressions were wow! The décor, lighting and general ambience of the place is amazing. The centrally-lit bar is breathtaking, and as someone has mentioned on a previous review, it really does feel like you're stepping into the 'Gatsby era'. The waiting staff were slick, friendly and charming, and I loved their glamourous uniforms! We had starters of pumpkin soup & game & pistachio terrine, and while they were both nice enough, my hubby (who is a great cook), could've done the same, if not better job of the soup at home. The bread and butter served however (esp.the butter) were delicious! I had salmon with spinach as a main, and Mr had cod. Both were cooked perfectly and tasted good, I loved my spinach - but again, I'm a little disappointed to say, we weren't really wowed. I ordered a mid-priced red wine which really wasn't great - but I'm no wine expert, and didn't want to feel foolish by sending it back... Overall, I'm glad we visited to experience the place, it's really an impressive venue on looks and service (from the waiting staff...not so sure about some of the slightly 'superior' folks on the concierge desk), the food however, for the price we paid and from what one expected on reputation, was rather a let-down, so I wouldn't rush back.

    Lunch for four on the fixed price menu. Very good starter and main course menu options. Desserts a little uninspiring for me although my companions loved their panacottas and cremes (not to my taste). Service very good - attentive without being obtrusive. Would happily go again, but would ask for a table in the main part of the restaurant rather than out on the right wing under a lower ceiling. which was a little stuffy and cramped in

    We had a table for 2 on Thursday evening and had pre dinner cocktails in the fab bar area which was extremely cool a great way to start the evening. There was a great atmosphere in the restaurant and very good food. The late night live jazz band with dancing was the icing on the cake! So all in all great place, fab food, and worth every penny. Now in our top ten London restaurants.

    Went to dine here with three other friends for her birthday and we had a lovely evening. The food was lovely, cocktails were delicious!! Beverly Knights was performing so it was very busy so the service was a quite slow but understandable. Only problem was that later on in the evening when she had finished, music was playing and the volume of it was so loud, it was hard to heard each other. Still, I will definitely return!

    I have visited on several occasions and always been happy with the service, food and ambience. It has a wonderful air of 1930's glamour and the set lunch is very good value for money. Only complaint on this occasion was the goat's curd and beetroot starter was so small as to be ridiculous, especially when other people had soup, which looked lovely, and I finished is 3 mouthfuls. The quantities did not compute!

Can't fault the interior - it looks amazing and great if you just want to go somewhere nice for some drinks with a friend or a date. Service was good and everyone was very friendly.

    Excellent service, beautiful venue, splendid food! Music and lighting creates a delightfull atmosphere. Perhaps most impressive was the very warm welcome on arrival and throughout the evening. Even being reminded the table was needed at 8.30pm was done discreetly and pleasantly. The food was delicious; Wine options very agreable. The only disappointment was that already at 7pm, one dish was already off the set menu (salmon).... However, thank you!

    Quick to take drink orders but had to chase table. Seated 45 minutes late with no explanation. Waiter very cocky and told us how 'amazing the food was', rather than asking our opinion. It was VERY average. If you are truly a foodie, not a place to go but good for drinks.

    Wonderful dining space, exceptional service and, a little surprisingly, the quality of the cuisine was at a very high level. Liked the wide choice of wines by the glass and 500l carafe at keen prices. A really good night out and fully expect Quaglino's to regain former glories and it will become the "go-to" dining venue in the West End.

    Loving the new look, very Hollywood glamour. The service is very professional and you can relax knowing once you're booked in the staff really do know what's going on with your booking. Food is amazing and definitely for those of us who really enjoy our food and many different flavours. You do need to be aware of the 2 hour turn around of the table, we booked for 7pm but our friends were late arriving so a relaxed drink at the bar was a no go as we were asked to go straight to the table. I can totally understand this decision and they do make this clear in their confirmation of booking. There is such a buzz about this place, can't wait to go back

    Food: We had lobster and deer and both were excellent. As a starter we had lobster bisque - too cold when served. The mixed salad ordered as a side dish was mediocre in taste - gravy tasted like ready-made. Service: well below standard, clearly lots of effort but insufficient training. The girls are beautiful and very friendly, but this cannot cover that they lack experience - at one instant knocking one diner on the head. Dishes arrive incomplete (of side dishes) and are served to the wrong person. Lots of apologies but it should not happen twice in a row at a table of four. Polite waiting of all dishes to arrive before starting to eat results in dishes to be almost cold for those being served first. Serving should be trained to be simultaneously to avoid this - or why not cover the dishes to keep them warm as there is obviously quite a distance from the kitchen to the tables. Be aware of pre-theatre timing - service is sometimes slower than expected - so have plenty of time and order at once. The place was not even half full, so I guess the kitchen is really slow. Value for money for the dinner is generally good by London standards, so hopefully these are all teething problems. Tip: take a flashlight to find the toilets!

    We went for a business lunch for the first time since they reopened, and the new décor is very nice and staff friendly and efficient. Only drawback was that we were sat with the kitchen just behind us and staff organising themselves to get the food served. So a lot of clattering and staff orders which was a bit of a shame. Overall though a very good experience, and we will be back for more business lunches for sure.

Finally that food and Champagne was excellent if a little on the expensive side generally speaking. All in all a recommended special occasion venue!

    Gerat to have a much anticipated lunch at the newly refurbished Quaglinos. After many wonderful meals there over the past 15 years I was very much looking forward to seeing the new restaurant. I wasn't disappointed. Absolutely love the look of the new dining room - very opulent versus the prior brightly coloured room. Food and service was fabulous as always and I very much look forward to seeing how the band is one evening. Thank you all for a great Saturday afternoon.
