In line with government advice, we are operating a COVID-19 secure management system* in our restaurant, and details of the controls we have in place can be found on our website.

Quaglino's has been the star of St James's since it opened all the way back in 1929. It has hosted royalty, nobility and famously got a nod in Absolutely Fabulous, but it's not all style over substance, this is a class act.
If you take a trip down that iconic staircase you'll find exceptional food, wonderful wines, and one of the capital's most decadent restaurant interiors.

Never again. We got 1 drink in 1 hour and it was not even busy on a Monday. There was no one to help for everything for 50 minutes

Our waitress Roxy was great fun and really attentive and made us both feel very relaxed. Nothing seemed a problem for her so I would say she is an asset for the restaurant. My guest thoroughly enjoyed her lunch and said it was the perfect afternoon. Thanks everyone

The service was out of this world. From the moment you walk in you truly feel like you have been taken care of. The attention to detail from the lighting to the music and the decor is something that you will fall in love with. The experiance was great and we will definatly be looking to go back again soon.

Food was good. We had tortellini and beef tartare to start. Both excellent. Swordfish main was excellent but halibut main was bland and disappointing. For desert we had the crime brûlée and peanut butter fondant. Both exceptionally good. Cocktails were great but took a very long time to arrive.

Great venue. All three courses were excellent and the live music superb. Our sides were initially missing when our mains arrived but the management corrected after a short wait and excluded from our bill which was a nice touch. We also received complimentary cocktails as a thank you. Would definitely recommend and revisit in the future.

The evening was lovely and Giuseppe was very good at looking after us. Food and live music excellent and great choice of drinks too. We had a 2 hour table slot and as it was very busy moving to a bar seat was difficult but eventually was sorted

Very good evening

Venue is super nice and the ambience as well but were a bit disappointed by the service. Staff was not competent and not helpful in many occasions, they were also interrupting our meal multiple times at the most inappropriate moments and their English was not understandable. Lastly, we were charged for the band without even knowing there was going to be a band. I expect more for that price tag.

Brilliant attentive table service by Roxy; she was considerate to our food allergy requests and covered our food which had just arrived whilst my partner was called away from the table.
Food was excellent and the set menu was great value.

We have eaten at a number of top establishments but this was up there with the best.

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.
