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.

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

The restaurant is beautiful! I booked 2 months in advance and as was a special occasion emailed asking to be near the front. When we first arrived the usher took us to a table at the very back behind a curtain. I asked her if we could be near the front, she spoke on her earpiece to someone and moved us to a near-front table. It was begrudgingly done and I was told “I have to understand everyone in the restaurant asks to be at the front” so I would advise asking to be moved if you get shoved into a corner.

Other than that, the staff were very pleasant and attentive and the atmosphere was fantastic.

I've had many friends recommend visiting Quaglino’s, and I’m so pleased I did.

I wanted to make an impression on my first date, and I can confidently say that the venue lived up to my expectations.

The staff were very attentive from the moment we arrived at the front desk. We arrived early, so we enjoyed a pre-drink in the bar. We were then lead to our table which was perfectly positioned to the stage. The entertainment was excellent and really created a great atmosphere whilst breaking up the night. It also allowed us to make more conversation, dance and flirt.

Overall, I was thoroughly impressed, and I will definitely be back again.

Hadn't been here for a long (long) time - it hasn't really moved on. Apart from the speaker right behind my seat being very loud (they later turned it down), there's nothing really to complain about - just felt old fashioned (in an 80's type of way) and out of touch with the thriving London food scene. The sort of place Johnson, Rees-Mogg and Cummings might meet for a boozy lunch.

The room was festive and the service was great! However big disappointment to sit down at a chipped and dirty looking wooden table:( This could have been easily remedied with the addition of a nice crisp linen table cloth but it was sadly missing. Spoilt the ambience and feel of luxury that Quagllinos has always been famous for. If there was an explanation for this oversight... none was offered.

First visit to Quaglino's and will not be the last! The service was good, I requested an intimate table for two , to which they put us in a cosy table for two at the back, it was perfect. The service was attentive and friendly, the music was fantastic, the live band really made it very special! I thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday lunch event. The atmosphere was fabulous and people started dancing towards the end of the afternoon. It was a memorable event.

Poor! bad experience. food was average. the waitress was average. spent £500 on food, was forced to leave the table after '2hours' when never previously told until our time was up and they began to get short.

Asked if we could then get a table for post-dinner drinks - which they failed to liaise with the 'separate' upstairs bar, so left our dinner table to go and stand at the top of the stairs, waiting for a table to sit for after-dinner drinks.

With a large number of free seats that were reserved for punters still not yet to arrive?!? We were not allocated a seat within 30 mins, so left slightly disappointed with the whole experience.

Shame Quaglinos - been a couple of times, not again.

Another great evening in Quaglino’s, me and my wife absolutely love this place. The decor is gorgeous, and you feel transported to a different era. A truly stunning place. The staff are attentive and helpful, and the food is delicious. Make sure to save room for dessert, because that was the best part of the meal !

Beautiful restaurant but service was very bad! On arrival I was shown to the bar area, I needed the Ladies and was told to wait in a certain area on my return so that my waiter would know where to look for me. I sat in a very prominent seat but staff simply walked by, eventually someone stopped and asked whether I was being served, to which I replied 'No' and was told they would find someone to take my order. Once seated in the restaurant itself our waiter was nervous and uncertain (perhaps new), unknowingly spilt drops of wine on the table when pouring, attempted to memorise our order, came back to confirm, his colleague stepped on my partners foot twice without apology. We were both very unhappy with the service but enjoyed the show which featured Jermaine Jackman. Will not be returning!

We were seated v close to the music stage but in the hour before the band came on, band members kept walking up and down past both sides of our table and it was distracting and off putting. Also the bread came after our starter. We advised in the booking it was a special occasion but no acknowledgement of that at reception or by our waiter. All in all a bit disappointing for the price on this occasion although previous visits have been brilliant. The band was fabulous.

First time at Quaglinos (don’t know why I’ve never visited before as I used to work closeby). Food is very impressive. Great flavours and good portions. I will definitely be returning in the future. Special mention for the confit duck leg as it was amazing. The chocolate fondant desert was so lush

Love Quaglino's, this was my 4th time back and celebrating my birthday. Food was brilliant, and we opted for mocktails rather than the bubbly which was amazing. The ambiance and live entertainment was lovely though a tad loud so hard to speak to the group but thats given especially as we sat closer to the entertainment area- I am not faulting it at all. The stuff were so nice, they even let us stay over an hour longer than our table set time. That was very nice of them and the cute birthday dessert was icing on the cake. Quaglino's never fails to disappoint and this is why I keep coming back here!
