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.

What a fabulous evening, food, wine and the jazz duo were sublime. This is quaglinos at its best. This is a must return.

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.

Really pleased with our dinning experience. The ambience was top notch—romantic vibe, music was great, staff were friendly and food was fantastic! This is definitely not going to be my last booking here. I can say it’s a gem in London and worth every penny - you can never go wrong!

Went for brunch with a friend on Sunday,
Attentive service, food was delicious, lovely atmosphere.
Quite a busy place for brunch but still not excessively noisy.
Both food and drinks on time and also my guest was quite happy with the experience.
Definitely going back.

What could have been a great evening was soured at end of the evening, when waiter brought over 1/2 bottle of our unfinished wine, we had been buying cocktails and gins as we thought it had run out.
The meal was over £300 for two so you would expect better service than this.
I have no complaints about the rest of the evening, the music, food, our table & the cocktails were top notch.
Come on guys need to iron issues like this out.

There was a set menu at 100£ each. We weren’t told in advance.
We were suddenly asked to leave the Table after 2 hours. Very annoying on a big occasion valentines!! The staff were rushing us.
We weren’t clearly warned of this. Not when booking or when arriving. Embarrassing. And ruined the vibe.
The music was too loud and intrusive. It was v good music but we weren’t there for a rock concert. .
Food good.

Asked waiter and waitress twice for a desert menu, but I was ignored. Asked for drinks menu which was brought to me 15mins later but nobody came to take the order. I was there for a valentines meal but the service for truly appalling. When our starter and main arrived I felt rushed to eat it as they asked twice if I finished when I clearly still had food on my plate. Originally requested to be seated close to the stage but we were seated near the stairs. Portions were very small but tasty but unfortunately we left hungry and annoyed with the service after spending over £200. Will not visit again.

What a shame. You could always rely on Quags but the reduced and limited menu is disappointing and quite frankly the food wasn’t what it should be. Maybe we picked the wrong time (2200) and it was getting quiet but the atmosphere also felt a bit restrained

For the low quality of the food, it was extremely expensive. Beautiful venue but filled with a bit of a tacky looking crowd dressed ready to go clubbing.

Amazing customer service and experience, from the reception to the waiters and the location itself.
Food was very tasty too! I loved the risotto and the creme brûlée desert!
Not so appropriate the extra charges (even if optional) in the bill for charity and live music band...Except that I loved everything

Food, venue and atmosphere was very good. Service was rushed and flaky.
The waiters were stretched too thin and were not giving enough attention to the table. i.e. you put a basket of bread for 6people on the table with 5 pieces of bread! Table not cleared quickly. Waiter spilling drinks when topping up. This is no reflect to the waiter’s skills, they were just running!
We had a good time nevertheless.

This was part of the ES set menu month. The menu was good, suited our party with enough choice for the vegetarians. Starter and main were good but the goats cheese dessert was absolutely not worth the extra £10 on top of the 2 course menu price. Service was bizarre alternating between a really brusque waitress who seemed to want to get through the service as fast as possible and other waiters who were charming. There seemed to be a plethora of staff until you actually needed them eg to order extra wine ( another £10 per glass! Or to pay the bill. I have been several times before with live music which has been nice but this time the singer was overly amplified making conversation impossible- it was like trying to talk during a concert. All in all Avery disappointing experience - their other nearby restaurant - the Avenue is much better value, less obtrusive but professional service and the food is similarity’s
