    I was looking forward to visiting this Soho institution. On the night however it failed to deliver. The service was poor. To be fair the FOH staff apologised and said they were having problems. They also offered to comp our desserts. However what was really unacceptable in a restaurant of this calibre was that a plate of spinach hadn't been washed properly and there was still grit in it!

    A few years back Quo Vadis was a bit too dear for the likes of us. Well, not unaffordable - just not really worth it with so many other good options out there. With Jeremy Lee's revamped menu offering options for wallets of all sizes, we thought now would be a god time to check it out. The verdict - nice for a special-ish occasion. The menu doesn't set off any fireworks - but what you have is very tasty, rib sticking comfort food prepared with great care and attention to flavour. Arbroath smokies with potatoes was a nice, delicate starter - then, both being of northern persuasion, we had the pie with chips on the side. The pie was hearty, with tender filling and delicious. The wine was fine and service attentive. All in all, a nice meal

    Waiters are friendly in general. Not all of them. Foods are ok. Nothing more than that. Choices are limited. Not really well located. Clouded area, with too many pubs around. You need membership to visit The bar upstairs, even after taking dinner here.

    Great place to have a leisurely lunch/dinner party. The staff is just the right balance of attentive and laid-back. The bread is fresh and extremely good, as is everything I've had there on both occasions I've visited. The seafood is particularly delicious! Excellent wine selection, and (more of a red wine drinker) the white wine suggestion was spot on for the food I had.

    We booked for a pre-theatre meal with my parents. Everybody we had contact with were friendly proffessional and a real credit to the restaurant. The service was perfect-at no time did we feel silly or rushed, the attention to detail was fantastic. Now to the food; a perfect selection for any taste a generous amount of food without making you feel greedy not too heavy to make sleep during your show! The cocktails were lovely. I would eat there again in a heartbeat. The a la carte menu looked fabulous.

    It was my son's 30th birthday. I'd let them know, but they were extremely kind and attentive, serving him a complimentary glass of champagne to start and a fabulous ice-cream to finish. The food was terrific - I'm a vegetarian, and although the choice was limited, it suited me fine. And the price was very reasonable for a first-rate restaurant.

    Another cracking meal. Good food supported by excellent service Quo Vadis delivers across the board. The set up here is just about spot on, the large reception area leads into the cocktail bar which itself leads into the main restaurant. It all flows seamlessly which sort of sets the agenda flor the whole experience. The menu may not be as expansive as some, but what they do they do exceptionally well.

    Quo Vardis is a smart venue, with friendly staff and good service. Large comfortable tables with crisp white table cloths. But our pre theatre set menu was very disappointing. The simple beetroot and boiled egg salad was tasty. However for the main course there was the choice of a vegetarian crepe or liver. A large pile of overcooked liver arrived that you could barely cut, no garnish. I sent this back and opted for the vegetarian crepe which was bland and very heavy. On the limited menu, there was little else that appeared interesting to try. A truly disappointing and very expensive lunch.

    I'm a big fan of Quo Vadis - the restaurant has a really nice ambience. The food was really good (I had Sweetbreads as my main course which were excellent) as was the wine and the head waiter charming and funny - we had a really relaxed evening. My one thing is that occasionally as the menu has a bit of an eclectic feel I'm not sure what to order and could occasionally do with a slightly wider choice but that said having been there several times in the last couple of years i've never had a meal I didn't really enjoy.

    We hadn't been to Quo Vadis for a while and wondered why we don't go more often. Excellent food with a menu changing on a regular basis, great service, very friendly, good cocktails and also well priced, and a good ambience and decor. We will definitely be going back and as my friend dines out a lot for business he will be coming back regularly.

    Quo Vadis never disappoints, I have eaten here a number of times now and am always impressed by the food, value and service. This visit was no exception; six of us ate (and drank!) abundantly for about £60/head but you could pay far less. The theatre set menu at £20 for 3 courses and excellent house wine at £22/bottle are west end bargains! The smoked eel sandwich is a must-order dish. Service polished yet informal. Ambience lively. Highly recommended!

    We arrived late and for our table due too horrendous traffic but were greeted with smiles and prompt service. The menu is short and the format takes a bit of concentration. The crab mayonnaise starter was all white meat and therefore lacking a bit in flavour whereas the crab soup was an intense brown broth with delicious rouille and oily, crunchy toast. Roast lamb with anchovy and beans was juicy, pink and perfect, the mackerel was fresh and simply presented with pickled gooseberries, a modern twist on a traditional pairing. Sides of jersey royals were generous. Although we had no room for desserts we were treated to chocolate prunes with our coffee. The food is moderately priced for Soho but wine is expensive. The service was excellent.

    I had been to Quo Vadis a few years ago and had loved the food; this time was a bit of a disappointment however. On the positive side, we had excellent cocktails at the bar and our waiter was charming and efficient. The food was mixed: all of us had the crab soup but none of us liked it (too salty). The steamed sea trout was very good. The ice cream was nice but the chocolate gateau so-so. The wine list was extensive but the mark up was much too high: limited choice of bottles under £40. Considering all that, the final bill of £61 a head did not represent value for money. I woud probably still try you again, maybe for lunch, and see how it goes.

    Booked at early table at Quo Vadis for lunch with a stranger to talk new business. She was late but fun. We shared two superb salads - warm Longhorn beef and the Quo Vadis summer special. Both delicicous - the latter exceptional. No wine etc. but even so, the bill was very reasonable and the staff good fun and efficient. Perfect.
