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.

Attentive service given in a lovely ambience. We enjoyed the live music but not so loud you cant hear each other in a conversation. We were three girls having a catch up and we were doing a lot of talking and stayed till the restaurant closed. We never felt pushed out and felt relaxed (comfy seats also). We had the 2 course meal with a glass of prosecco for a great price and the food was exceptional. The lobster bisque started had full of depth and flavour and the roasted cod just fell off and was perfectly cooked. Unfortunately we were so full that the desserts we ordered could not be enjoyed as much. Would definitely go again.

Haven’t been to L’Escargot for many years but it hasn’t lost its wonderful atmosphere. The food was very good and the 3-course menu for £21.50 was very good value indeed. The food was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The staff were extremely friendly and professional and a big thank you to the guy who kept watch whilst I used the men’s toilet on the ground floor (I have mobility problems and couldn’t climb the stairs to the ladies.....)

One of my favourite restaurants. Always good and friendly service and always good food. The French onion soup is a must, when it’s on. Not cheap but nor should it be.

Went for lunch and there were about 20 of us. Food was excellent as was the service. I can’t extoll the virtues of this place enough. I think our group has planned to go again early next year and I’m looking forward to it already. Fabulous
