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.

As always, it was nice to return to this beautiful venue for a catch up with friends, this time on the 3 course set menu deal. The glass of Chandon was avg but cocktails and other drinks were v good. An added bonus this time was the live music which we had not enjoyed before as the restaurant was busy. Overall service was good, but the waiter at our table could have been friendlier. The staff were accommodating in letting us have the table past the 2 hrs slot as restaurant was not too busy. Look forward to a future return visit.

This was a real treat. We took the set menu offer which was excellent value. The food was brilliant - a lovely veloute to start and lamb cooked pink to perfection as a main The chocolate desert was well worth waiting thr 12 minutes for that it stated on the menu - runny and warm. Overall, excellent experience. Oh, and the air con worked too!

What can I say apart from it was exceptional great food ambience was spot on service was outstanding entertainment was pleasant and made the evening most enjoyable I would definitely recommend Quaglino as a venue for a special occasion the only thing that I would say that the drinks were a bit pricey but for a special day it is worth it .

Ricardo was wonderful serving us at our table, but the rude blond at the front desk upstairs yet again soured the experience for us. Second time they have given too much attitude and I’m not dealing with it a third- shan’t be returning to Quaglinos until they teach staff to leave the rudeness at home before heading to work.

Having lovely evening until I asked for an extra couple of crackers for two of us as we had cheese for desert but the crackers ran out before the cheese.

The waiter very rudely gave me a lecture in front of my friends saying that this is a single portion and not a sharing platter and basically I should have divided the cheese portion with more though!

Oh well he lost his £40 tip as I was so enraged and embarrassed we took it off the bill.

My wife and I dined here on a Wednesday night and tried the prix fixe menu. The ambiance was Art Deco modern, dark and sophisticated. The food was excellent and beautifully presented given the price point. Service was quick and friendly. There was also great live R&B/ Soul band. The volume was perfect as I could still speak with my wife without shouting. Would recommend / return.

Enjoyed the food and drink again but felt we were be rushed too much. Despite buying drinks from the bar first we were being hurried to order our food and wine. We did run over by nearly 10 mins though! A group of 7 needs a 3 hour slot really.

My 2nd time this Month at this Lively Restaurant and this time with my wife. This restaurant never disappoints, the staff and always attentive, the ambience is 1st class and the food never fails. I can only continue to praise this restaurant and will probably go again with with some friends who have never been so they can experience what i have already.

I had not been to Quaglino’s since before it’s transformation a few years ago. I was delighted to see that is just as pleasant a place in its new incarnation. Rather than the stark, minimalist decor of days past, the place has a more finished and opulent look now, while still having some of the most amazing interiors sight-lines one could ask for. The staff were uniformly pleasant and helpful, and the crowd a mix of the young and chic and older people happy in their own skins.

But the food is what matters, and it was excellent on every count. The dishes are creative without being self-congratulatory, and there is something for every taste.

Nice food and good service - once we moved tables - but evening ruined by very loud band which made conversation impossible. Did not know there would be music and would not have come if I had.

Couldn’t rate this place anymore if we tried. We came for our joint birthday meal and it was everything we’d expected and more. Great food and value for the ‘ 3 course and glass of bubbles for £33’ the waitresses were very attnetative and couldn’t have been nicer.
We are planning another trip back in summer with friends to enjoy a later reservation with the band!
Thanks for such a wonderful evening, highly recommend!

Absolutely loved it! We were rushed due to transport issues and theatre date but service of excellent as they totally understood our dilemma. Food was superb and looked amazing on the plates. We both had seafood which was fresh, tasty and tasted as good as it looked. It was our wedding anniversary and so glad we chose here. Sure it would be brilliant later in the evening when all the tables full - music on a small stage at 9pm we were told which would be worth seeing.

Quaglinos's certainly catches the eye and deserving of its' "Iconic" status.
The decor and interior construction is unique and exciting, has a strong art-deco feel.
The food was very good overall, although my beef tartare was a bit chewy. The chocolate fondant was delicious and my main course of guinea fowl was cooked beatifully..
The drinks are pricey but no more expensive than many other restaurants of this quality.
I shall return.

Far too noisy. If you want to talk to the rest of your table don't go here on the evenings when they have a (not very good) singer!

I hadn't been to Quaglinos for a while and took a house guest there for an evening out. It's gone downhill. We ordered drinks to start with, my G&T came with the tonic already poured and it was difficult to taste any Gin. The 'music' was very loud which made conversation difficult. Service was impeccable, food portions quite stingy and again conversation at the table quite impossible. Overall disappointed with the evening due to the excessive noise and I won't be returning.

So back to Quaglino’s after a two year break. We enjoyed very good service throughout, attentive and unobtrusive. From the start a good welcome, very friendly staff. The food was of high quality, albeit rather small portions. We both enjoyed a velute, and I had sea bream whilst my companion had rump of lamb. All accompanied by a complimentary glass of wine. The plus point, although a rather minor one, was unlimited tasty bread. We will definitely return!
