We had a fab meal at Quaglino's on 29 October, before lockdown2 kicked in a few days later. Roxy looked after us excellently. We had the set menu with a glass of bubbly each (altho the chap that brought the bubbly was a tad mean with the measure!) The chicken ballotine starter and roast sea bream main course with a curried mussel pottage was amazing. As indeed was the green apple, blackberry & fromage blanc verrine, which was also a thing of beauty to behold.

We celebrated my birthday on 25.10.20 with a Soul Sunday 3 course lunch - fantastic value. Food was good however I really would have loved my roast beef meal to have been piping hot. The service was fantastic, with a big thank you to Roxy, she was "on it", she ensured we were cared for from the moment we sat down.
The added pleasure on an autumnal Sunday afternoon was the live music, which we loved next time we want to be at the front.
Thank you also to the doorman for facilitating our memorable photo session at the entrance.

Great night- amazing atmosphere, the band was great. Food was just average not bad just wasn’t amazing. Cocktails were really small. The band and atmosphere made it worth it though so would go back for that and hopefully they will change their menu and it will improve food wise.

Fantastic. Quaglino's food it always excellent- never had a bad dish. The service is brilliant too and the best thing is the atmosphere and energy in the beautiful room. Quaglino's is never pretentious and welcomes everyone.

The decor and ambience is lovely due to the glam layout. We went for the £45 set menu with bubbles which was very good apart perhaps from the fact that the whole party of 4 chose creme brûlée which was ok but some of us didn’t finish it because it was a bit sickly sweet and had a strange mousse topping that it could have done without. They made an effort for the special occasion which we appreciated but we waited for ages for our desserts and the style and calibre of service didn’t fully match the setting and prices.
A number of guests were quite drunk and rowdy as they walked by and overall the clientele didn’t feel quite as classy as in times past.

Had a lovely meal with friends Friday, we had the set menu which included a glass of bubbles. Although the portions are on the small side I still think it is good value for money but next time I would probably order a side to go with. Only disappointment was that our table was booked for around 7 and the evening singer didn’t come on till 9 so we only got to watch for 15mins!

The service wasn’t the best but the staff are friendly. After we finish our main course we waited quite a long time for our desert. I had requested in my booking for a vegan desert with written happy birthday on it but when the deserts came it was only a vanilla sorbet with a plain chocolate stick that said happy birthday. I was quite disappointed because that was not what I had in mind. There is also a £8 charge on top of the service charge because of the live music. I really think that people should be make aware of the services so there is no surprises.

This venue is way better in the evening. I have been a few times for brunch and in the evening. Unfortunately the lighting is brighter in the day than the evening. I’m not sure why, as being underground the lighting should be the same in the evening to keep a good atmosphere. Service and the food is great. The music is way too loud for DJ performance. Live singing performances are great.

Unfortunately at the time of booking I was not told that the table has a 2 hour limit. Neither was I told this at the beginning of the meal. Instead, 1h45min into the meal the waiter suddenly informed us of this and proceeded to rush us, even stood over us at some point waiting for us to finish the drinks and leave. That was really disappointing as we were on a date. The food was pre-prepared in advance (chicken included) and was luke warm (£25 for the main). Overall a very disappointing experience on what was supposed to be a romantic night for us. It was very difficult to relax under so much time pressure. Unfortunately, have left with a bad taste in the mouth so to speak.

First time visiting and I wasn’t overly impressed from the get go. Our table was not ready until 9pm and we got kicked off our table at 10:30... you can hardly digest your food in that small space of time. The waiter was not attentive, we had to ask for the cocktail menu twice, menu isn’t vast and the food was average for what we paid. I don’t think it’s professional for anyone to bring you your bill when you’ve not requested it and because we didn’t pay immediately, the waiter threatened to bring over the manager. I just think the whole experience wasn’t one to remember. The venue itself is lovely and the live singing is great but that’s all I have to say.
