This is one of the few places in London which consistently offers a combination of fine cuisine with top live music acts and dancing every night until 3am. The restaurant has recently been refurbished and serves modern French/Mediterranean style food. This is a great place to go if you want a lively atmosphere and entertainment in a West End location. What's cooking? King prawns with lobster sauce, Dover Street gravadlax, toasted goats cheese with Mediterranean roast vegetables, char grilled fillet steak, pot roasted duck with carrot puree, braised parsnips and potato sautee.

Mayfair Madness!

Known for being a meat market. Ordinary food but cabaret style so it's rare to find a good one! Too many people squished in and a high number of Hens and Stags - brace yourself :)

How many fond memories I will have of this place - leaving parties, hen nights, birthdays - have been coming for years and was lucky enough to recently celebrate my 50th here. The reviews from my friends were all great and thought I would be celebrating my 60th here. Where are we all going to go now when we are... More

I have just learned that this iconic restaurant and wine bar has closed its doors for the last time. I have such great memories of such fun nights here. I truly hope that a buyer is found for this wonderful place

I have been going to this place since George started it 30 odd years ago when it was just the brick arch cellar part. I was so sad to hear that George had passed away recently but his legacy lives on with his family. This visit we took some friends for a 25th Wedding Anniversary and they were highly impressed....

Always wanted to visit a Jazz bar/ restaurant. Dover St didn't disappoint My wife and i went for her birthday. Greeted at the door and shown to our table very promptly. The table service was very attentive with glasses topped up regularly. The icing on the cake was that our table was seated next to the music stage which gave... More

We love Dover Street! The food is always excellent and the menu varied and we have never had cause to complain (at this point I will add that we have eaten here off the main menu and as part of voucher deals and were treated no differently) Soup was gorgeous although I am not quite sure what it was! carpaccio...

Disappointed is far from the word I would like to use, everything about this place is a no go. The drinks were way over priced, very poor table service and my meal tasted simply like boil in a bag lamb shank, as for the entertainment if I wanted to hear someone get insulted about there appearance off stage I would...

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
