“Great Food, great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

My Wife and I had a celebration meal at Quince. The food was fantastic, the steak was probably the best I have ever tasted, but what really made the evening was the staff. The lady welcoming us to the resturant and showing us to our table and our waiter for the evening, Mostafa.
He was great company and made some great suggestions for food choices.
A really enjoyable evening.
Thanks Mostafa

“overpriced poor service hotel restaurent”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

starters are incredible overpriced and very small but quite tasty.

Steak had nice flavour, nicely cooked but served luke warm.

great chips.

waittress was unable to advise what vegetables she had served and ditto with cheese board.

Wine was cheap but nasty

service very poor

£100 per head is poor value and for that price there are much better in mayfair

“1st Class - memorable food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We had a fantastic lunch here, the food was outstanding, beautifully presented and the staff attentive without being obtrusive. It is nice to see an open working kitchen and mysteriously - no food smells! We will certainly return. Being centrally located it makes an ideal shopping trip break.
