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.

Had a lovely lunch,
We had the set lunch and it was perfect for us.
Service was great and friendly.
Quality of food excellent with different tastes and flavours.
The cauliflower veloute was absolutely delicious.
Only one disappointment was my friend’s lamb rump. She had two pitiful lamb and one was so fatty that it was inedible. A shame as it was effectively half her main course.
I would go back and intend to very soon as the set lunch menu suits me.

I really enjoyed my evening @ Quaglino’s. I was there for a business dinner with my colleague from abroad and he was very impressed. My starter (scallops) was absolutely amazing and with steak to follow, it was just beautiful.
I loved the evening entertainment. The ambience overall was just perfect!

Fantastic food! Literally delicious. However service was shocking. Too many staff, too little knowledge.
Sat for a drink at the bar first. Asked re: the gin selection. The bar man didn’t have a menu and told me to get up and look at the shelf behind the bar where the gins were shelved!! Now, not only is this ridiculous, but the bar is also dimly lit and the shelves not close to the bar. Hence I missed out on ordering something new to try and had to instead pick a bottle shape I was familiar with!
I had to order a dessert wine 3 times with 3 different people. It hadn’t arrived by the time my dessert had cooked (12 minutes order!) , so I asked for a digestif that I could physically see on the bar. I was asked if I wanted ice, so I said yes.
When I’d nearly finished my dessert, the digestif arrived, without ice! Why ask and then not get it right! Plus our table was next to the bar, so why it took over 20 mins to get a drink, I do not know!!
And then the bill came- and was incorrect!
Then we were offered a bar table upstairs to finish my digestif (the dessert had long been cleared). When we got upstairs, the bar seating manager then had a rude argument with the manager from the restaurant about where to seat us! The restaurant manager was trying to be professional, but the bar manager did not. It was embarrassing to watch. And entirely unprofessional.
Spent over £500 for 4 people- great food, but ruined by the many clueless staff.

I picked this restaurant because it was supposed to be a good place to dine and listen to music. We ended up not staying for the music because the food and overall experience just made us want to go home.

I guess people come here for a ‘fancy’ experience: weddings, hen do’s, wanting to impress a date. We were underwhelmed. It’s certainly sparkly but it comes across as pretentious rather than classy. Trying too hard.

The wait staff were all nice. But it was too fussy so you couldn’t relax. For instance, we went to the bar for a bit before our table was ready. We started at the actual bar but decided to to move to a table because the seats were lower and more comfortable. They wouldn’t let us move our own drinks but rather had to do it for us. And when we subsequently switched chairs (at the same table) because the light was in my wife’s eyes they scrambled over and shifted our drinks to the new seating positions. I guess that’s meant to come across as deluxe service but it just made us nervous. Again trying too hard.

The food was decent. Pretty good. But nothing special. Certainly nothing worthy of what purports to be a fancy place and isn’t cheap. Or rather it seemed like an old fashioned definition of fancy food. Fancy looking and overdecorated vs what I would consider modern fine dining: great ingredients, prepared expertly but simply so the natural flavors do the impressing.

Perhaps a good place for a prom date (if Mom & Dad are paying) but not a place for grown-ups who want a fine dining experience.

Avoid

We had extremely slow and poor service. We waited for 30min to get our first drink although we had selected a two hour bottomless brunch. The staff were obviously pressurized and busy however they were surly and unsmiling.
My burger was hardly edible with a completely soggy bun on the bottom and chewy meat.
The ambiance was good and eecor is grest however it was a poor experience.

Great first impression of the venue, classy and lively. Set Menu isn't all it appears to be as the main course is just the meat or fish and the sides that you pay extra for, soon add up. You pay extra for the music and the 12.5% service charge is added for the music as well. Wine is fine but over £40 (including the service charge) for a run of the mill rose is a steep mark up and not particularly good value. All in all, we had a nice experience but I wouldn't rush back. The high point was the excellent service!

The food was not special and not well prepared. The food also took far too long to be served. The place is loud and almost impossible to hear. Waiters did not pay attention and always needed reminder. I have had better dinners for half this price regularly. Did not even like the seating.

The singers were enjoyable. The only part I liked.

Feel like asking for a refund. Staff had to know we were unhappy.

Since D&D Group acquired Quaglino’s it has had something of a renaissance. The restaurant is now quite glamorous with food to match and is also great for pre-dinner cocktails in the upstairs bar, overlooking the restaurant via the sweeping staircase. We dined on the set menu deal with glass of fizz which was good, a nice balanced choice of dishes all tasty and perfectly executed. Staff werw efficient and attentive. At 9:00 pm they now also have live musicians on stage which gives it a clubby feel but in a sophisticated way. Have been a few times and will return!

This was my second visit to Quirky Quaglino’s based on the creative menu - which did not disappoint the Birthday Lady and my other guests.

The ingredient, flavor and texture combinations in each dish take you on an enchanting Journey of Culinary Delight.

The service was cheerful.

The music was engaging without being a distraction.

A galleried homage to decadence. Soft lighting and high ceilings emphasise this impressive Bar/restaurant, lunchtime was sparsely populated, probably more staff than customers but that’s good, less noise.. Food was excellent, two of us had the set £30 per head menu the other diner decided to go off piste, which bumped our prices up, nevertheless, guinea fowl was nicely cooked, the chocolate fondant was excellent, the drinks are pricey but if you have to eat to a budget don’t eat here, the extras will hurt.. our waiting staff was indifferent and in a hurry to close down lunch service.
I will return though.

Brunch at quaglino was one of the best I have had in London. It was recommended to me by my son and his girlfriend.
We had a 1.30 slot and one of my friends was delayed but there was no press to order food or drinks. The staff were on hand but not pushy.
After 1pm is a good time to book if you need more than a two hour slot
There was good variety on the menu, something for most people’s taste but not too much so you can’t decide what to have. Quality of food and portion size was good. Drinks however quite expensive as you would expect.
The dj playing was a nice extra - not too loud to prevent conversation but enough for a dance if you fancied it - some people did.
The best thing of all however was the quality of service.
I’ll definitely return to quaglinos and so will my friends
Good job Quaglino

Unfortunately we didn't notice any 90s Absolutely Fabulous theme which had been advertised on the website - I couldn't make out whether the DJ was playing?

An impressive looking night club style restaurant. We had a relaxing drink in the bar first. The food was excellent - I started with a salmon gravalax, followed by sea bream and chips (I would have preferred boiled potatoes but they weren't on the menu) and had baked Alaska for dessert - all very tasty. Our waiter Riccardo was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. A most enjoyable lunch - highly recommended.

I don’t think Quaglino’s is as good as it once was..... seems to be more more of a tourist trap these days. Just thought I’d try it again for old time’s sake. Service was a bit shaky, with several different waiters/waitresses attending our table, so the left hand didn’t know what the right was doing.
Food was ok. Nothing hugely memorable, but tasty all the same.
Live band was excellent. Absolutely tip-top!

I’m not sure I’ll rush back too quickly.
