Great service, great food, price is high (£400 for 3people) but for 3 stars Michelin, it is acceptable.

Alaine Ducasse is a very formal restaurant well worthy of its Three Michelin star status. From the moment you arrive it is pure luxury. Every course is magnificent. The staff are very friendly and attentive. It's not cheap. Expect to spend between £300 and £500 for a couple but for a special occasion it's a night to treasure.

Amazing lunch with the tasting menu. Flawless service. Great wine. Pricy but worth it. Our kind waiter even took us to the kitchen and wine cellar to visit.

Truly amazing meal, service and experience. Be aware of the 'house champagne' they offer which is £20 a glass... we spent £800 between 4 so bring your credit card

Exclusive Mayfair location, stunning room & decor and highly attentive service (almost a bit too much at times when you just want to talk with your guests), with the amount of waiting staff you just know you won't be lacking for anything. The set £55 lunch with decent enough wine and water is ultimately very good value for a 3M... More

The interior design is nicely reserved and elegant. The food itself didn't live up to the 3 stars at all. No amuse gueule (just some cheese balls for the aperitif) ! The 7 course tasting menu was good but there haven't been any wow effect or any sensational taste, presentation or product itself. Basic good food, which every other starred... More

Look at the review I have given for what is arguably the best meal experience of my life. Forget the Roux Bros, the fat duck and all the others, just save up for this one, then die happy.....

We came here for my husband's birthday - 2nd visit. We had very high expectations based on our last visit where service and food were both impeccable. It was good, possibly not as good as the last visit. Got a free champagne from Amex which was nice. Seated near the kitchen so good hear the orders being shouted out to... More

I treated my wife to a dinner at in the Lumiere section of Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester. It was one of the best dining experiences of our life. We have eaten at many Michelin starred restaurants but for me it is obvious why this is a three star restaurant. I spent a long time with the restaurant organising the... More
