Venue says: "Join us for a splendid three-course Christmas lunch with roasted bronze turkey breast, all the trimmings and live entertainment for only £95"

A famous Mayfair restaurant recently revamped.

This swanky Mayfair restaurant and late night party spot dates back to 1929, but it was quite the place to be when Sir Terence Conran revived it back in the early '90s. It's now under the ownership of the D&D group, and they've spent a small fortune on a refurbishment nothing short of lavish. 

There's a modern-European feel to the menu, with dishes ranging from cauliflower velouté with winter truffle to hand-chopped venison tartare with smoked oil, pickled shimeji and sourdough melba, oysters, caviar, Dover sole meuniere and a duck egg bubble and squeak with charred leek, sautéed mushrooms and glazed baby onions.

Keep an eye out for seasonal menus, bites at the bar and fancy brunches, too - including the 'Q Brunch' on Saturdays, with live music, bottomless prosecco and a menu of classic brunch options such as omelette Arnold Bennett, eggs royale or scrambled eggs with lobster and a spinach muffin.

The wine list - slanted toward big-hitting old world regions - is extensive, with many of its bottles available by the glass and the carafe. A wide-ranging champagne selection and an array of classic cocktails are also available.

Welcome in 2017 in Gatsby-style in the heart of Mayfair. We have a very special evening planned for a New Year’s Eve like no other. Expect a bumptious four-course meal from £100 for early seating and £180 for a later sitting. Live music will complement your evening from 7.30pm until 12.30am, followed by DJ Cat on decks until 4am. A night not to be missed! Don't forget your meal can be paired with our celebrated wine, cocktail and Champagne lists .

My 50+ brothers in law chose Quaglino's for a birthday dinner. I went along late for drinks and a dance. Walking in, the place is fabulous. Was truly like walking into the full onness of Di Caprio's Great Gatsby - its glamorous and overwhelming. The cocktail I had was delicious. But despite all that it was not a pleasant place to be, The music was so loud that conversation over drinks or food was impossible. Once we started dancing the clientele seemed to have little basic respect for others or the unwritten rules of the dance floor. 


I was really disappointed as I was excited to find somewhere I might dance - but the switch from band to DJ which is overlaid by odd random saxophonist combined with the clearly rich but rude other people mean it's just not for me!

I came here with my family for a meal for my birthday! We came along for Jazz Sundays and we all had such a brilliant time from my nephew through to my Nan! The venue was stunning and the staff were welcoming, fun and friendly!! The food was gorgeous and we loved the live jazz music, they were a great band that added to the experience. We cannot wait to come back again! Recommend a visit to this little gem! Xx

As a regular in Mayfair I make it my business to get to know the "hot spots".

A few of us came here for dinner and drinks and what we got was more. The ambiance was lovely and the dark rich decor gave the interior a touch of warm and sexiness.

The quality of the service was top notch. They payed the up most attention to us and our glasses lol. Even my napkin was placed on my lap for me which I liked because sometimes MY wrists need a break ;)

The food was positively sublime! We had their Rochester oysters which were just gorgeous, the sea bream with confit tomato and crushed potatoes and the sea bass. All were pure perfection.

We also had the lobster salad and salmon. Flavour town and beautifully balanced!

The desserts were equally as delicious ! The banana parfait is a must!

This place is perfect for the special occasion, I have been here a few times and I was helping my friend a bride to be choose somewhere elegant and classy for hen party as she didn't want anything too tacky! Quaglinos was one that sprung to mind.


They have a beautiful private dining room Prince of Wales which was just stunning. The only downside as we had some traditional hen attire a sash etc they made close all the blinds and basically sit in the dark. 


We chose to have the afternoon tea which was lovely. We wasn't able to have this bottomless but was still really nice and had a glass of champs to go with it. It would have been good to have more sandwiches as there was more sweet than savory and the served the tea and scones last which spaced everything out nicely. Although I would have like my tea a little earlier.


They were unfortunately in a bit of hurry to get us out of the room but they did give us a nice area in the bar.


All together i had a really nice day and so did the bride to be and all her hens!


This place is a great choice for something special and private dining.


The Queen many years ago would even dine here.... so if it's good enough for the Queen it's good enough for me!

Quaglino's brunch with bottomless prosecco was a great Saturday treat! Priced at £25 for 2 courses, or £29 for 3 and £15 for bottomless prosecco.


I went for a smoked salmon starter and a cod main (which had a £4 supplement). Both were delicious and the portions were a good size. 


They weren't shy with the prosecco either, the waiter made sure we were constantly topped up!


Only thing is, after you pay for a couple of sides, and the supplement for the main you can spend more than originally planned, but it was all lovely and worth it. 


The setting is glamorous and grand - perfect for a special occasion.
