This restaurant serves dishes that are close to "Home Made Cooking" (for those who know how to cook...). Surrounded by fast-food restaurants of Russell-Square neighborhood, it is a quiet place where one can relax from a long journey as a London Tourist. The staff is helpful and the menu is enriched by temporary dishes every day. The orders are delivered... More

Wouldn't really rate this place, okay if tired and don't want to venture too far, but we ate here one day and choice quite limited and quality not great. Staff friendly, but food so so. I had sea bass, would't recommend. Many places nearby worthy of checking out.

Very ordinary. We ordered a bottle of white wine and initially received 2 glasses. We eventually received our bottle but had to ask for a wine bucket for which we waited until halfway through the meal.

Our family of four had an early dinner here and found both food and wine selection to our liking. The lamb curry was a bit bland (please add some salt!), but the cold meat platter was enjoyed by all. Some really good wines.

Whilst not a 'wine bar' for the jet set, 'Jacques' is extremely great value and certainly not a rip off. Clientele is all ages as this restaurant is part of a tourist/business hotel. A fair selection of sensibly prices wines are available plus there is a reasonable unpretentious menu. Portions are extremely generous, well cooked and service very friendly if... More

Part of the Tavistock Hotel - nice location, and attractive outdoor tables too. Menu is well chosen and not overpriced. House wine particularly good value at £2 per glass and quite decent. Service is friendly and efficient. Desserts not so good, but I often find that to be the case.

Jacques Wine Bar is situated in the Tavistock Hotel - we went in 2 or 3 times during our recent stay in London and found that the food and drinks were of a high quality and the staff very attentive and polite

After the rowdiness of the London pub we looked forward to have a nice glass of wine on the terrace here but boy where we surprised, the terrace was closed and the set up was more of a cafe, we where handed menus and then left for 20 minutes and no one came back to take our order even for... More
