Outstanding service from the French guy who advised us on wine and talked about their wine-sourcing.
Would 100% recommend!

Lovely place to go for Argentinian steak - great atmosphere and the service was superb. It is a small restaurant so best for smaller groups of intimate events.

Zoilo has a a stylish cosy dining room with a classic argentinian menu. The empanadas were amazing - the best I think I've had in London - and they have an interesting take on a provoleta - drizzled with honey, making it far sweeter than the classic. Order both though and you cant go wrong. There is a lot more choice of starters than mains, where the list is short. I'm surprised that there was such a limited range of argentinian steak - there was a rib-eye or a flank only - and having the option of a fillet or a bife de chorizo (sirloin) would have been nice. That said, our (english) t-bone was great - tasty and perfectly cooked.

Service was very slow - from taking the orders to serving our food - but polite and competent.

We had a early booking for dinner. It took a long time to order drinks and food, but once arrived the quality of food and drink was very good. At the end of our meal we asked to order a bottle of wine (we had 30 mins before table was to be vacated) and were told categorically 'NO, you may not have another bottle, we'll only give you a glass.' The service was atrocious and have never felt so demeaned by a waitstaff member at such a nice restaurant. We ended up removing service from bill and leaving to find a more welcoming environment for an after dinner drink.

I love this place. The atmosphere is always just right for the occasion. Zoilo is the perfect place for a romantic dinner, or a laid back lunch with friends. The service is always impeccable. The friendly staff are always on hand to assist. The food is excellent and the wine list compliments it perfectly. The seasonal pumpkin ravioli was wonderful,. We paired it with a Torres suggested by our waiter which complimented the dish very well. Great central location and excellent value. All in all, a really nice experience. I look forward to my next visit.

Little gem tucked away behind the busy Oxford Street. Lovely staff with wonderful food as always. Ceviche and Asado steak are must-order items. Chips are amazing too. Well, everything on the menu is delicious. Been going here for years and it always deliver!

Feels like a Michelin Start in a small village, great decorum, understated and classy at the same time. Charmed by the quiet atmosphere with great attention to details, from the red sofa to Gotan Project playing in the back ground, the meat definitely leaves up to the Argentin national pride and so are the smile of the waiters...

Excellent food, especially for meat lovers, and good service. Overall disappointed to have been asked to leave the restaurant as we had not finished our dessert: a high end restaurant where we paid £80 per pax should better manage its reservation planning.

Dear SofianeF, Thank you very much for your kind words regarding the quality of our food & service. As most restaurants in London, especially small like us, we operate a set dining time allocation, 2 hrs in our case, which is regardless of how much is spent. We are sorry that you felt rush but be assured that should we have had the possibility to let you keep the table longer, we would have done so as our policy in that matter has always been "When we can, we do". Kind regards Sebastien Manager

Lovely restaurant tucked away on a quiet street. I booked in advance as I assumed it would be really busy but the restaurant was very quiet. My friend had a garlic allergy which meant there were some limitations to the menu but not enough that she didn't have much choice. Staff were helpful and accommodating. Great value on the two and three course set lunch
