Went for a quick business lunch which was booked in their club restaurant. Not sure if this is opened to the public as was a guest but the atmosphere was laid back and friendly. From a not extensive menu, I chose the baked asparagus with Parmesan cheese - thought this would be baked in the oven asparagus cooked with Parmesan... More

Walk in early lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. Lunch meeting with colleagues at Dean Street and we opt for Quo Vadis for lunch. There are many restaurants in Dean Street but this is one of the few fine-dining ones in close proximity Good food

I have found this place on the internet where it was suggested by several british sources as one of the best breakfast spots in the whole UK. Quo Vadis is a public restaurant and a private club. During the day the private club part is for members only but in morning hours they open it for the public and they... More

I had to ring the contact number to find out. We finally got a table, got seated and ordered from the menu. The food was... More

Quo Vadis has a few private rooms. Used one of these for a filming session of a business breakfast meeting. Good service; good food; decent room. All told, a good place.

I dined here with my partner, and having read the TripAdvisor reviews we expected this to be a high quality restaurant in terms of food and service. First up, the positives. The place was cosy and beautifully decorated inside. The waiters were very attentive and polite - and were able to decipher some of the confusing language on the menu... More

We booked this restaurant after reading a review, and it was a very good experience, the staff were helpful, friendly, and the food was really lovely. There was no sense of rushing us whatsoever, well worth a visit.

Description
Quo Vadis is one of London’s most iconic restaurants, with its instantly recognisable facade and fascinating heritage. The “Grande Dame of Dean Street” has been around since 1926 and continues to be a Soho institution, beloved by local residents, foodies, regulars and tourists alike.

Restaurateur and food connoisseur brothers Sam & Eddie Hart took on the restaurant in 2008, and in 2012 the inimitable Jeremy Lee came on board as Chef Patron. Jeremy along with General Manager Andy Smyth, runs the building with charisma and charm.

The menu at Quo Vadis changes change daily according to the produce offered to Jeremy by his enviable list of suppliers, many of whom Jeremy has built up very close relationships with over the years. Seasonality and sourcing is of paramount importance to Jeremy and his kitchen.

Diners come to Quo Vadis to enjoy an eclectic array of dishes from the a la carte menu, which also features a popular Theatre Set menu that is available all day.

The succinct and reasonably priced wine list has been put together by Sam Hart and wonderfully compliments all aspects of the menu. Sam does not rely on names or reputations but chooses wines on whether he thinks the customers will enjoy drinking them. He likes to blind taste and tries to select wines that have a real sense of terroir and place and from those, where possible, he picks organic and biodynamic wines.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
