Incredible food, amazing service. A wonderful experience from start to finish.
An amazing establishment that always delivers great food and ambience. The staff are so helpful and really make the experience superb
Another great meal. Would highly recommend. The fish cake with leeks and mussels was exceptional
Authentic french dining experience. Service is spot on. Great food and ambience. Good for both date and friend catch up.
Simply outstanding! Perfect dinner for a perfect day
I love the ambience at L’ escargot. It has a beautiful interior and the staff are second to none from when you walk in the site to when you leave. Great wines at good prices, the food is really good, especially the French specialties. I love it here!
One of my favorite Soho restaurants.
Good food, attentive staff and hard to beat front of house dining room.
Perfect authentic dining experience for a special occasion. The staff were very warmly accommodating and the food was amazing. Will definitely be back.
food was mediocre, nothing special about the lescargot here and chateaubriand was again mediocre.
service was ok, ambience was nice
This was our first trip to London since lockdown. Our expectations were high and we were so excited. The team at l’escargot were amazing. We were sat at a perfect table, the food was everything and so much more and the service at the top of their game. We will definitely return again and again.
Delicious as always. Consistently good french food and great service.
Really beautiful restaurant with lovely staff and food
The decor was lovely and the service was fantastic! The food, though, was average for a good restaurant. The food portions were decent-sized but the quality was overpriced by about 30%, I would only come here again if there was a high discount offer - but you cannot beat the service!
Excellent service, fantastic food and even better wine. Lovely surroundings and would definitely recommend
Some of the best traditional French food in London, and lovely staff - professional and friendly.
I hadn't been to L'Escargot for ages...it is good to know that it hasn't faded with the years. The dining room is elegant and timeless, service was courteous but not overbearing, the food was wonderful (I had wild mushroom risotto), and my chum and I could actually hear our conversation. Someone must have noticed that I had given my friend a birthday present and presented her with a plate of chocolates and cookies with a candle on the side and happy birthday written in chocolate...now that is classy!
This is a really beautiful restaurant. The service is exactly right. But the food is really excellent. The menu is quite limited, but I think that’s probably a good sign rather than a bad one. I would recommend it to anyone.
A beautiful traditional French restaurant, long established in the middle of Soho. In this new world of Covid compliance the wearing of masks and social distancing is well adhered to. The service is excellent and the food sublime but for those who are not acquainted with how the French cook steak - go one further than your usual choice. Medium rare is rare and well done is nowhere near the British understanding of well done..... but they are more than happy to cook it a bit more if you're not happy.
We booked for 4pm when L’Escargot opened... we wanted it to be quiet so we weren’t rushed. It was perfect! We had a leisurely late lunch that was just delicious and not rushed! Wonderful service, absolutely delicious food and sumptuous decor. My friend is Vegan and is never offered much choice... but both her dishes were exceptional - as were mine!
Oh! .... and the bread !! ❤️❤️
Hadn’t been back for years- but will definitely be back very soon
Really great ambience and good value. I went for the Chateau Briand deal. The service was fantastic . I will go there again and again
Amazing food and wonderful service
The escargot was unfortunately the disappointment of the meal. The Flambé Ricard, worked well with the snails themselves . However, there was so much Ricard that the jus left from the snails, that one would usually mop up with bread, was highly alcoholic and had to be left.
The presentation of the snails also was not as I recall, it is now a stainless steel dish. Functional but not inviting. I recall a prettier ceramic dish being used in the past.
All finicky I suppose, but when the name on the door is what it is, I'm expecting the best tasting and best presented Escargot in London.
We had a wonderful evening out and it was such fun to have lovely piano music to accompany our delicious dinner.
Food and service great as always, but also want to highlight this is a great place to go right now. Tables are well spaced - all the ones we saw were at least two meters from the next, waiters wear masks and enforce if when people are up. They are being responsible which makes for a relaxing experience in these times (as well as being the right thing to do). None of which compromises the ambience, which remains just as charming as ever.
We took advantage of their OpenTable Chateaubriand offer - the beef was excellent as perfectly cooked as requested. One of the best meals, and the best value, I've had in Soho in many years. Highly recommend.
We came to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Everything was lovely. We have eaten there previously many times but this time the snails weren’t as good as I remember, which was a shame as they are my favourite on the menu
From the first moment staff were genuinely warm and welcoming. Food was absolutely delicious and very good portion sizes too. Unfortunately one of our meals got attacked by a cheeky insect but our waiter James was fantastic and dealt with it promptly and professionally. I would definitely recommend L'escargot for anyone who wants delicious and down to earth French food in a comfortable yet upscale setting. P. S. James you are a legend!
Amazing service, and amazing food. The staff overheard that we were meant to get married that day and kindly gave us a glass of fizz. Always my favourite London Restaurant. Thank you!
Fantastic as always. A true class act.
We had an absolutely wonderful 25th anniversary celebration. Everything was perfect from start to finish. Food, ambience and service were excellent. So lovely in these difficult times to be able to have a fantastic meal in an intimate setting, with attentive staff. Special thanks for the fantastic pianist who certainly made the evening even more special. Thank you
The restaurant had a great buzz. The staff were very attentive and the food was outstanding. Overall a great experience.
Came for my partners 50th birthday, had a great evening, food was excellent as usual, couldn't fault it. Staff were polite and very attentive.
We will definitely be coming back for my sons 21st next year.
we were in a lovely atmospheric room upstairs. the food was wonderful as was the service.
We went here on Saturday night to celebrate our anniversary. The food was absolutely delicious and the waiter was so lovely and attentive. Will be going again and will definitely recommend to friends. Thank you for such a lovely evening 🙂
Classic, traditional, friendly and great food. Only disappointment was that we requested a birthday message for my daughter and it didn’t arrive but still it was a memorable evening.
Outstanding quality food in an authentic French restaurant setting. The service was attentive without feeling oppressive. A very romantic evening.
However one word of caution - the website has not been updated as it is currently showing offer menus that are not available.
A very nice evening with a generous chateaubriand offer - many thanks!
As a regular, I have never been disappointed and will continue to attend etc!
Perfect start to the evening as they opened early to serve us drinks. The set menu was fantastic value.....Confit of Duck perfectly cooked and the snails gorgeous. All in all a lovely evening. Bring five friends and enjoy
I've been to L'Escargot before, it was a while ago but I had an idea of what to expect. Everything was lovely from the moment we arrived to the moment we left but, and this is no fault of the restaurant, the atmosphere was a little flat but I'm assuming this is down to COVID 19. I really hope this doesn't continue as I'd hate to see this established and mainstay of Soho dissappear.
L'Escargot is rated 4.6 stars by 3264 OpenTable diners.
