Description: L'Escargot is the oldest French restaurant in London. However, as a Soho legend, it is very much up to date. Relaxed atmosphere, good food and wine, all reasonably priced. There is no dress code (nudity discouraged !). L'Escargot has been host to stars of stage and screen for many years. Previous clients include, Coco Chanel, John Giulgud, Mick Jagger, Elton John, Ralph Richardson, Judy Dench, and the late Princess Diana. Pre-theatre and post theatre dining is popular and theatre and dinner packages are available. You may just pop in for one course and a cocktail or glass of wine - we look forward to welcoming you.

I went to L’Escargot for the first time last night as a guest at a corporate event. There were 12 of us in total in the room at the front of the restaurant. As I wasn't paying I can’t comment on the cost, but the welcome was friendly, the service efficient and the standard of food and wine served was excellent. Probably the best Beef Wellington I have ever had.

Quirky place tucked in just off Soho Square so a real buzz around the area. There were plenty of people eating in the main restaurant area which added to the ambiance. Will definitely come again when I am next in London on pleasure.

Went to L'Escargot last night, the food and its presentation and the service was excellent, the atmosphere was great, the restaurant was busy but it didn't feel like it and we could talk with ease without feeling like we had to shout over other diners. A smart decor. Will definitely be going again

Went here for a friends birthday last night. Very friendly and welcoming from walking through the door. Lovely classic decor - simple and stylish.

Bathroom could do with an update but all very clean and well arranged.

Food was very reasonability priced for the quality and location - staff were very attentive and friendly - large portions and they happily provided a birthday candle for our dessert which ended the evening very nicely. Highly recommend for a well priced excellent classic French meal and ideal for a special occasion or an intimate supper à deux.

My wife booked for pre theatre meal. From the reception when we arrived everything was perfect.
Service and ambiance first class and we liked the menu not fussy but straightforward. All the food was beautifully presented, good value and very tasty and not short on helpings....couldn't get better.

My last visit was more than ten years ago and within a month have now dined here twice - once for lunch, once for dinner. From the first lunch to the dinner the restaurant has changed hands - new chef, several new front of house, variations on menu and changes to wine list. On both occassions the food was excellent, beautifully presented with attentive and discreet service.
