Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a wonderful dinner at Quo Vadis this evening. The food was so good: inventive and creative, but balanced and delicious as well as exciting and new. Our server, Fabian, made it a really special dinner. He looked young through my 63 year old eyes,...but he was a seasoned pro. I think if what we had been looking for was structure and formality, he would have delivered. However, as this was our first time here and my wife and I have no dietary restrictions and like just about everything, we asked Fabian to work with us to assemble a sampling that would give us a taste of what Quo Vadis does best. He delivered the goods. He was warm, engaging, confident and knowledgeable. A good reminder to the owners that what separates a good meal from a great one is this level of service.More

Quo Vadis has evolved from French food cuisine into an Italian influenced menu. The food is excellent; the restaurant is wonderful for friends and families. The restaurant has a beautiful look that is pleasing for all customers. Quo Vadis easy to find. We loved Quo...Vadis, it's a wonderful place for couples to dine. By the way, there is a wide choice of wine for diners.More

Really average restaurant, not made to feel welcome in any way. Service strange would be the word to use. Starters - mine was pear, Stilton, bitter leaves etc was very nice. My husbands goose rillettes seemed off? Mains we both chose Chicken pie which was...ok. Felt like we were wading through thick porridge and eventually we had to give up as it became inedible. Decided against a desert as preferred to leave. Not the best experience and very sad as we had both looked forward to visiting this restaurant.More

A group of us went in November and all ended up ill. The common denominator was the oysters, though Quo Vadis denied any responsibility. Fair enough and they were good enough to offer a complimentary meal up to £150 (original cost was in excess of...£500). I went with my husband for said complimentary meal and we were rushed from the very beginning. We’d not even been there an hour and a half and were told they’d need our table back before the stipulated two hours. What a weird experience when they were supposedly trying to make us feel welcome. Sorry, I just don’t get this place. I was a returning customer after numerous visits following a bout of food poisoning - though they accepted no responsibility - and made to feel like a bloody nuisance. The lack of customer care/service is an absolute joke. Owner Jeremy Lee may be a celebrity chef but these places seem to rely on their reputation when maybe they need to take care of the people coming through the doors. I won’t be back.More

This gem in Soho was perfect for me as I wanted a calm place with some fine food. Well, the atmosphere was Indeed calm, and the food was fine. I especially would like to highlight the amazing smoked eel sandwich as a great starter. However,...what could have been a nice 5/5 rating was unfortunately dragged down by the underwhelming service. Not outright bad per se, but I didn't feel welcome.More

Visited for dinner a week ago. Not the best table in the house, but had a great experience. Lily, our waitress was engaging & professional. I had the smoked eel sandwich to start with; & it certainly deserves all the praise & accolades it has...received. Smoked eel in Britain usually only appears in Tasting menus as a small component. At QV it is a substantial portion, served warm on sourdough toast, with lightly pickled red onions & horseradish cream. My main was hake with parsley mash - another winner! My wife had the chicken pie which was superb & plentiful, with a crispy short crust pastry topping & lots of chicken in a delightful light creamy sauce. Sorry, with such superb & tasty savoury courses, no room for pudding. But, who knows - next time.... Barrie & JulieMore

Our lunch meal was excellent as was the service. Would certainly visit there again. A tad surprised there was no vegetarian option on the menu.

We had a fabulous dinner for 3. I’ve seen a couple of recent negative comments about the service but our welcome and table service couldn’t have been friendlier or more professional and knowledgeable. We liked the decor and had a great table by the window....All the food we had was excellent. I enjoyed the eel sandwich. Having previously only eaten smoked eel cold, having it served warm was a revelation in terms of taste. My two companions raved about the pepper and fennel sirloin beef salad with tomato, fennel and celery, and a lot of freshly grated horseradish. The chicken veloute pie was fantastic and great value at £22.50. Definitely one of the best pies we had ever tasted. The crust was crisp and crunchy and the pie was packed with chicken pieces. For desserts we had a delicious sticky toffee pudding and two lovely ile flottante. All portions were generous other than a small side of greens. There is an extensive wine list with similar prices to most London restaurants of this quality. We would definitely return and have recommended it to others.More

Very quaint and pleasant room , tables a touch too close together but bearable. The welcome was a little too pointed when confirming the table time limitations. In truth it led us to order two courses rather than the intended three because we didn’t want...feel rushed. The food was good no issues at all but service was average in every respect. Not terribly attentive , and in general a bit hap hazard. No real reason not to visit again but will not choose for a special occasion more a last minute dot com type of thing.More

I'm sad to write this but we didn't have a great lunch and had been so looking forward to it. My husband took me for my birthday. First off, the restaurant was freezing cold so not a nice environment. It was a cold day so...we kinda forgave it. Ordered Oysters then each a starter and a main. My starter arrived along with the oysters so we thought that was odd but when my husbands starter didn't arrive it was clear they thought the oysters were his starter and had forgotten his actual one so a quick apology and he got it. Artichoke and anchovy salad, good god it was disgusting - swimming in olive oil. I told him to return it but he was too polite and hungry by this point. The mains were just okay, I had pheasant which I understand is small but I did eat more plums and prunes than anything else. My husband had the pork which he said was, again, okay. Dessert was delicious - shared a sticky toffee pudding. Our wine was also very good and the sommelier was excellent, shame the waiter didn't know about wine and tipped the rest of the bottle into my glass along with all the sediment. The bill was eye watering. Not a great experience, sadly won't be back and have already told people to save their money. Sorry!More

Food in London was great, but it seemed everything was similar to offerings in the U.S. so I searched for 'must eat in London' and was directed to Quo Vadis. Charming little spot, excellent (professional) service. Food was very British, but very modern and upscale....Loved this spot in Soho.More

This little gem in the heart of SoHo never fails to disappoint every time we drop in be that weekday or weekend. The staff are truly wonderful and take time to get to know their guests and deliver great service even during the busy periods,...when the place is heaving. In the members club Saskia and Zander were fantastic, very welcoming and attentive and make the best cocktails in Soho! In the events floor Ziem and Hollie were brilliant and nothing is ever too much trouble. Some members clubs you get very little by way of personalised interaction (looking at you Soho House!) but this is a very special place with an incredible team so we can’t wait to return.More

I chose this because of the reviews in xx which couldn’t be further from reality. Nice but amateurish and inexperienced service with no sign of any manager lets it down. The food lacks any depth or refinement and is just average at best. There are...many better restaurants so don’t waste your time hereMore

This is a very pretty restaurant and staff were wonderful, particularly the lovely Flo. However, we had come for Jeremy’s famous pies. Three of our party of four ordered the chicken veloute pie, and were devastated to be told that all the pie was finished....I am afraid the cannelloni was a very disappointing substitute.More
