Hadn't been here for a long (long) time - it hasn't really moved on. Apart from the speaker right behind my seat being very loud (they later turned it down), there's nothing really to complain about - just felt old fashioned (in an 80's type of way) and out of touch with the thriving London food scene. The sort of place Johnson, Rees-Mogg and Cummings might meet for a boozy lunch.

The room was festive and the service was great! However big disappointment to sit down at a chipped and dirty looking wooden table:( This could have been easily remedied with the addition of a nice crisp linen table cloth but it was sadly missing. Spoilt the ambience and feel of luxury that Quagllinos has always been famous for. If there was an explanation for this oversight... none was offered.

First visit to Quaglino's and will not be the last! The service was good, I requested an intimate table for two , to which they put us in a cosy table for two at the back, it was perfect. The service was attentive and friendly, the music was fantastic, the live band really made it very special! I thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday lunch event. The atmosphere was fabulous and people started dancing towards the end of the afternoon. It was a memorable event.

Poor! bad experience. food was average. the waitress was average. spent £500 on food, was forced to leave the table after '2hours' when never previously told until our time was up and they began to get short.

Asked if we could then get a table for post-dinner drinks - which they failed to liaise with the 'separate' upstairs bar, so left our dinner table to go and stand at the top of the stairs, waiting for a table to sit for after-dinner drinks.

With a large number of free seats that were reserved for punters still not yet to arrive?!? We were not allocated a seat within 30 mins, so left slightly disappointed with the whole experience.

Shame Quaglinos - been a couple of times, not again.

Another great evening in Quaglino’s, me and my wife absolutely love this place. The decor is gorgeous, and you feel transported to a different era. A truly stunning place. The staff are attentive and helpful, and the food is delicious. Make sure to save room for dessert, because that was the best part of the meal !

Beautiful restaurant but service was very bad! On arrival I was shown to the bar area, I needed the Ladies and was told to wait in a certain area on my return so that my waiter would know where to look for me. I sat in a very prominent seat but staff simply walked by, eventually someone stopped and asked whether I was being served, to which I replied 'No' and was told they would find someone to take my order. Once seated in the restaurant itself our waiter was nervous and uncertain (perhaps new), unknowingly spilt drops of wine on the table when pouring, attempted to memorise our order, came back to confirm, his colleague stepped on my partners foot twice without apology. We were both very unhappy with the service but enjoyed the show which featured Jermaine Jackman. Will not be returning!

We were seated v close to the music stage but in the hour before the band came on, band members kept walking up and down past both sides of our table and it was distracting and off putting. Also the bread came after our starter. We advised in the booking it was a special occasion but no acknowledgement of that at reception or by our waiter. All in all a bit disappointing for the price on this occasion although previous visits have been brilliant. The band was fabulous.

First time at Quaglinos (don’t know why I’ve never visited before as I used to work closeby). Food is very impressive. Great flavours and good portions. I will definitely be returning in the future. Special mention for the confit duck leg as it was amazing. The chocolate fondant desert was so lush

Love Quaglino's, this was my 4th time back and celebrating my birthday. Food was brilliant, and we opted for mocktails rather than the bubbly which was amazing. The ambiance and live entertainment was lovely though a tad loud so hard to speak to the group but thats given especially as we sat closer to the entertainment area- I am not faulting it at all. The stuff were so nice, they even let us stay over an hour longer than our table set time. That was very nice of them and the cute birthday dessert was icing on the cake. Quaglino's never fails to disappoint and this is why I keep coming back here!

Restaurant was totally over booked & could not cope
No seats in the bar & standing for 40 minutes later than our booking time
Finally got cold food at 11pm
We have been going here for years but last night was poor there are much better places that are not just interested in large parties

I love this venue and the bar for pre-drinks. Beautiful decor although service is a bit rushed - arrived 15 minutes early and they seemed desperate to sit us but we went to the bar and ordered drinks that we had to take tonight table because it took a while to get served. Well, it was Saturday night! Food was amazing - both lived the pate/parfait starter with light melt in the mouth toast, then we had tender steak fillet and tuna for mains. I think my only complaint was the unfitting choice of crooning “elevator Muzak” performed by a trio on the small stage. Odd.

We went there with a family, they made us wait 25 minutes for a table but we saw a table available. We were trying to approach people that work there to do some action when the main receptionist told us that she cannot sit is now because her iPad is slow wtf. They sat us down eventually next to the stage with loud music and drunk people dancing around, breaking their glasses with drinks that fly into your plate... disgusting. Regarding food, it’s okay nothing special. The dad was trying to order one dish , they said it’s unavailable, the other dish- oh we run out... disappointing... and waiting for a music takes ages. Disappointed overall.

Having heard really good things the reality didn’t match the expectation sadly. The main course wasn’t great, arrived luke warm around d 30/35 minutes after the starter. For a birthday treat there were only around 30 people there which made the ambience a bit cavernous...tables were chipped and damaged with knocks and splits and the bubbles was cheap Prosecco so maybe the set lunch wasn’t the best option... sorry wouldn’t rush back I’m afraid...

Apparently Mondays and Tuesdays (outside of the Xmas season) are quiet, so only a quarter of the restaurant was being used, making the place a little less buzzing than I remember from previous visits, but the service, food and wine was superb.
