With iconic status on the capital's restaurant scene, Quaglino's has offered brasserie dining in London since 1929. Mickael Weiss’ contemporary European menu uses the highest-quality British ingredients, and is served against a backdrop of glamorous décor and live jazz.

The Quaglino’s menu is fittingly sophisticated, with dishes such as Highland wild red deer with parsnip purée and braised red cabbage epitomising the restaurant’s penchant for the luxurious. More simple classics also feature, including fillet of steak au poivre and papardelle with smoked tomatoes and aubergine.

An extravagant venue, Quaglino’s has two bars: a central cocktail bar in the main dining room and a mezzanine bar overlooking the restaurant below. Both serve classic cocktails and boast a wine list of over 300 varieties. The restaurant is also renowned for live music, transforming Quaglino’s into a late-night party spot.

Located in well-heeled Mayfair, Quaglino’s restaurant is a 4-minute walk from Green Park Tube Station and an 8-minute walk from Piccadilly Circus.

    Overall we had a lovely afternoon enjoying the set menu and £15 unlimited prisecco offer. Was a bit disappointed that they felt the need to take my credit card details and the 'threat' of being charged if anyone dropped out. There were only 5 of us in the group. One friend did drop out but I don't think we were charged. It also seemed strange that at the point of ordering we had to order the entire meal. Have never done that before but maybe it speeded up service. Lovely setting, have been twice in the past and it's better than I remembered. Great food with a candle on dessert to celebrate 2 birthdays - nice touch. It was very noisy, lots of loud chattering so fine with friends but not ideal as a romantic venue.

    The interior design - amazing. The bar itself was crowded no space to sit and over the noise you could not hear the singer but because it is a bar lets say it was ok. The dining experience was poor. First of all, we booked our table at 19.45 we got seated 19.55. After that, our waitress came with menus. She gave us A la carte menu where in the booking I chosen set menu dinner. I asked her to change the menus and she was not so happy about it. Later on, she asked us about the drinks I could honestly not hear through the noise what she was saying. I said let us think about it and she replied again not happy: yeah, that is why I am giving you the menu. After this, we waited for maybe 20 min to order our food. The food was nicely presented but not the best. Anyway, my partner asked the waitress if we could get our Proseco as it was included in the set menu. She replied: " Oh but I gave it to you! " we said well not really. She started to defend herself that she gave us and she remembers pouring it into our glasses. She went to asked other waiters if they remember serving it to us. Basically, we felt like we are trying to steal glass of proseco like we were trying to trick her or she thought that we are poor.

    So to sum up: Interiors amazing, food average, service horrible. If that would be just a bar then yes it would be fine. I expect high quality restaurant with the best service. Last weekend we went to Wrights Brothers in South Kensington. We spend roughly the same amount of money £150 ( last night £170) for dinner but the food was fresh unbelievable taste combinations and amazing absolutely amazing service. I could go on comparing other restaurants with this one ( Duck and Waffle, Le Pont de la Tour which is also belongs to dnd, ect. ).

    Great evening out for our family Christmas Ages 17 to 54 years. We went there last year as well and had the same waitress who amazingly remembered us despite the fact that she must have looked after hundreds of groups since.
    The food was good but the real plus is that it's a fun place for all ages.
