Very nice French restaurant in a very busy part of London. The food was excellent, the service was fine but it is a bit on the expensive side. They specialize in Escargot and they lived up to the billing. I would recommend it for someone looking for a nice meal in the area.

Great food at a price you would expect from a famous central London restaurant, a once in a while culinary treat...The lescargot were ‘to die for’.

Heritage restaurant that feels up to date. Friendly attentive service , and Great ambiance, full but not too noisy. The eclectic paintings also gives it a boho vibe. We had the offer menu of chateaubriand which included a glass of Prosecco each which was a bargain. Perfectly cooked rare steak with fries and salad. We could not resist the signature escargot which at £30 for a dozen was pretty steep but glad to say absolutely worth it. This is not usually the type of restaurant I go for but in an area literally overflowing with ‘new experience ‘ restaurants, L’Escargot continues to hold it’s own delivering french classics with excellence. I will definitely eat here again.

Chateaubriand for two lunch deal is exceptional value. French onion soup to start was also great (often not so outside of France, I've found) and the setting is fab. Great paintings and grand furnishings. An institution. Feels like a special lunch. Great for a date as feels a bit special. Wine list is good and they were v happy to let us taste before deciding on a bottle. We didn't dessert bit did notice that the chessboard looked a touch underwhelming but what we had was superb. Importantly, the chateaubriand was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Personally I'd like the option of a jus rather than bearnaise but u couldn't fault the bearnaise itself if that's your thing. Great experience!

Disappointing and over-priced food in a wonderful dining room; it's a great pity you can't take a picnic to enjoy the atmosphere and comfort of this historic French restaurant, without suffering a very indifferent meal. The menu features fine French classics but they are poorly done. The best dish was a small salad of endives with roquefort, but it was spoilt by caramelised walnuts and chunks of pear pickled in red wine. Scallops were just past their best, swimming in oily butter and far too much undercooked garlic. Chateaubriand was much too salty, possibly pre-cooked and served with frozen chips and pale, wilting watercress. Cheese was standard French factory. Heavy 'homemade' bread rolls. The wine was delicious and very fairly priced. It's sad to see this and you do wonder about some recent 'rave reviews' from restaurant critics. Maybe they bring in a chef specially when they know a reviewer is coming.... You can always be unlucky in a restaurant; the chef is sick, or some unforeseen calamity. But there was too much evidence of poor quality ingredients for this to be just an off day. The sad cheese and the industrial chips say it all.

We really enjoyed atmosphere and food in restaurant.
Food was just amazing but for that money which I spent in restaurant my expectation of the service was much more higher.
We didn't like service and body language one of the staff.

Had a great birthday celebration - staff were friendly, chatty and unhurried.

Atmosphere great - family with young kids nearby impeccably behaved and food came on time. They allowed us to walk around the whole building and explained some of the history.

We had the Chateaubriand offer: £45 for 2 which was excellent with succulent meat and starters of snails and lobster bisque that were delicious. I would highly recommend this.

We visited L’escargot As a part of my daughter’s birthday following a matinee performance at the Prince Edward theatre next door. The food was nice, it was quiet enough to have a good conversatipn and the service was excellent. We all ate from the set menu which was good value and had a good bottle of wine. My only disappointment was not to be given a basket of bread which surprised me as it’s normal practice in most other continental-themed restaurants we’ve visited.

Service was ok but a Chateaubriand that was sliced was served up onto plates whilst my husband was in the toilet so his steak sat getting cold while he returned. Waiters were not very forthcoming. The onion soup was delicious but otherwise the food was a bit average, the chips were so crunchy you couldn’t put your fork in them, the cabbage was so drenched in black pepper it was all you could taste and the both the soufflé and the ice cream it came with were grainy. The soufflé was also very puddingy rather than being light and fluffy. Wasn’t bad but not worth the normal menu price.

All things one could wish from an evening, service of the highest order alongside the best onion soup known to a man of London and a wine cellar that breeds only envy. My favourite new (old) haunt of soho.

I read a very positive review in the FT at the weekend and as we were going to the theatre the following week I though I would try l’escargot after a 20 year break.

We arrived on time and we were promptly shown to our table, orders taken efficiently and food arrived in a timely fashion given it was 10pm by this time. We ordered from the Opentable menus, two courses for £19 which is very good value. We had Lobster bisque and onion soup, both excellent followed by cod with lentils and duck confit. The cod appeared a little grey but tasted fine and the confit good though the skin lacked the crispness expected. With wine the bill came to a very reasonable
£73 for two

A restaurant with a relaxed, convivial atmosphere. Staff are pleasant and attentive. We sat at the rear ground floor where there are some interesting artworks. Starters of lobster bisque and scallops were both excellent. Mains of confit duck and beef bourgignon were equally delicious and generous (a side of dauphinoise potatoes with the duck a must). Chocolate fondant and pistachio souffle to finish. The menu says 20 minutes wait for the souffle, which arrived spot on 20 mins from ordering. A highly recommended venue.

L'Escargot is always good fun and good value and the room is terrific. This time the food was really good, but it was Friday night and pretty noisy, and as our table was bang next to the piano it was a little hard to talk. I may stick to weekday lunchtimes for my future visits!

I was probably expecting too much from the written reviews, and exceptional food as that is how it was rated on open table, but it was good, not phenomenal just good. Salmon starter is nothing special, some smoked salmon and toast. The Coq au vin was the best choice for the evening. The Creme brulee also a little sad and not very exciting.

We went to L’Escargot because of Jay Rayner’s write up last year and everything he said about the place was spot on. I’m coeliac so couldn’t eat everything on the menu - was very sad that I couldn’t have the lobster bisque but my partner said it was incredible. The duck confit was delicious and such good value on the open table deal. The place itself has a lovely feel to it and the staff were attentive but not to the point of being annoying. Can’t wait to go back and try the snails!
