Description: A Soho institution, the Quo Vadis restaurant and bar on Dean Street first opened its doors back in 1926. However, where many others would likely flounder, Quo Vadis has revelled in the opportunity to move with the times and delight new generations, constantly reinventing itself while staying true to its roots in good food, great drinks and a convivial atmosphere. The luxe-retro interior complete with stained glass windows and parquet floors is a sumptuous nod to Quo Vadis origins, creating a timeless, sophisticated feel. Similarly, the menus on offer here at Quo Vadis bring together old and new, seeking inspiration from recent history while using impressively fresh, inventive ingredients, an eye on surroundings and tongue somewhat in cheek. The bar is equally as important as the restaurant at Quo Vadis, the drinks list running from small scale local ales to a wide range of fantastic world wines accompanied, if desired, by delicious bar food.

I had the most wonderful birthday dinner at Quo Vadis (June 2014). The atmosphere and décor of the restaurant set the tone for the evening, and to some extent the food itself - intimate but bustling, smart but relaxed, simple but also full of character. All of the food at Quo Vadis is highly seasonal, and the daily menu is... More

Love this restaurant. The atmosphere is relaxed and unhurried. The wine list adventurous. Cocktails delicious. Food a bit of a let down frankly. It was all a little over seasoned and the hake was decidedly salty. I had liver, and that was it. Liver with no garnish or vegetables. Liver. Delicious liver with sage but nevertheless a lonely plateful with... More

Made the reservation on the day and our table was ready and waiting at 7pm. nice buzz about the restaruarant even at that time. Took our time ordering but we... More

Late Saturday afternoon reservation.. Great bar, space and ambiance. Attentive service and interesting but slightly limited menu.

Arrived soon after 8, the place was packed with French and Americans (the early diners) finishing their meals, and service was a bit hard pressed and chaotic. Table wasn't ready, we had a drink in the bar, only a few minutes to wait. I ordered a starter that said tomato, avocado, bacon, anticipating something along the lines of a Cobb... More

This is just what I look for in a restaurant - really fresh, seasonal dishes from an imaginative menu, together with an efficient, friendly staff who clearly want you to enjoy your evening. Quo Vadis achieved this with flying colours last night. The English veal was a highlight - vitello tonnato for one of us as starter, and shoulder for... More

The menu was varied and exciting, seemingly subject to frequent change with the seasons products. Pre booked with family. The ambience was busy but pleasant with knowledgeable friendly staff. The food was great with fresh flavours and great variety. Only comment of improvement is perhaps the cocktail menu could be expanded.

I spent a lovely afternoon here eating, talking and being very well treated by knowledgeable, helpful staff. The restaurant looks great, is very comfortable and has an atmosphere that is conducive to spending a leisurely time eating and drinking with friends. Apart from the food, which is great, the staff make the experience. They are helpful, friendly but discreet and,... More

Popped in for a couple of cocktails on a wet Wednesday night. No reservation but the lady on the door couldn't have been more welcoming. The barmen were both knowledgeable, friendly and bearing in mind it turned out that they were one man down also very approachable. Service was a little slow due to the man down situation but the...

I went there for an important business lunch and despite it being an extremely quite lunch time as it was the day after the bank holiday the table given was next to the service station and the next two table of guests to arrive were placed close to us. Only 6 tables were occupied in total so why not seat... More
