It's a long long time since I've been to E'scargot... probably before the time when Marco Pierre White ran the kitchen. Now under the very diligent eye of head chef James Tyrrell, this restaurant is even better than i remember it. Our party of 4 had a varied cross section of the menu - chicken liver terrine, steak tartare, and croque madam, followed by a cooked to perfection chateaubriand, rib eye steak and Ox cheek main course. We were then spoiled by a personal chef's grand mariner soufflé. Every dish was faultless. Despite the gap in my attendance, the restaurant has managed to retain its classic soho charm and ambience. I could easily have been there in 1984. Service was discreet yet impeccable. I will be back!
I cannot recommend stepping into this place enough, as we discovered this not only this great area at the back of the restaurant, where we had lunch, chilli & crab on toast with spinach on the side, but had a quick peak up stairs, to discover room after room for events that were going on, and finally the best on is the bar at the very top, hmm I thinking party time, as especially as its my birthday oh so soon!
We had a lovely time at L'Escargot. The food was delicious and the decor great. No sign of ceiling cracks. We had a Chateaubriand which was delicious and a Grand Marnier souffle to die for. The snails were just as I wanted very rich garlicky and hot ! Excellent well priced wine list. The staff were very friendly and we met George the Manager who was charming. We will definitely come back.
Highly recommended. You may think this is an old school establishment but it's not. It's a classic restaurant that everybody should try. The food is excellent as it the wine list and service. Definitely going back!
Entertained clients at this Soho institution and what a venue! I'd heard the good, the bad and the ugly about this stalwart riding on the back of a celebrated heritage.
Have to say, it was great. The staff were attentive, there was a good buzz for a Wednesday Lunch time. The snails were delicious, as was my salt beef for main.
Really impressed and will be back again for sure.
First visit yesterday , great food especially the mini sausages and the espresso martini weren't bad either
My restaurant of choice in Soho. The owners have now completed an incredible makeover scaling back what used to be a cavernous dining space to become a more intimate dining experience and a super cool private members club upstairs. I love the Snails dripping in a fabulous garlic butter sauce and love the classic well cooked menu. Try to get a look at the club if you can Salon Noir is the place to be but if you're feeling frisky check out Salon Rouge.
