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.

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
I had booked dinner here for my boyfriend's birthday. The venue likes to come across a little more prestigious than it actually is, with about 4 members of staff having to check you in, take your coats and escort you to your table. the restaurant is impressive - the right amount of opulence, with high ceilings, a large bar in the centre of the room, which is overlooked by the main bar area, so guests can people watch the night away. The restaurant staff made it clear that they wanted us to eat up and go - we were on our main course within about 20 mins of arriving, and I had to ask for them to slow down the service so we could actually enjoy the evening. I had asked specifically for something special for my boyfriend's birthday such as a dessert with a candle etc. My request was ignored, despite the staff having confirmed it at the time of booking, so this was a real let down. The waiter then made a joke when I paid for the meal (as though women don't earn enough to pay) which I found very offensive. When I explained that it was my boyfriend's birthday, the waiter suggested we get a drink, but he directed us to the bar, as he said he wanted our table - hardly a special experience. The food was nice, but I definitely felt let down by the treatment we experienced.
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.
