Description: Our iconic Mayfair restaurant has been transformed for a new culinary...
Our iconic Mayfair restaurant has been transformed for a new culinary chapter. First established in 1931, The Grill at The Dorchester quickly gained a reputation as the place to be for the finest grill food in London.In keeping with this original concept, Alain Ducasse's protege Christophe Marleix has created new seasonal menus. Delicious dishes range from grill favourites alongside the restaurant's signature blue lobster chowder and an extensive sweet souffle menu - the first of its kind in London. Lively and welcoming, the re-imagined restaurant fuses The Dorchester's iconic elegance with a contemporary tone and creative details. Interior architect Bruno Moinard was commissioned by The Dorchester to create a vibrant and timeless setting. For an exclusive event in an iconic yet timeless setting, the restaurant can accommodate groups and private events for up to 30 guests or reserved for exclusive use - please contact us for more information.

We ate here to celebrate our daughter's 17th birthday. She is a carnivore and requested for a good cut of beef. We had the Aberdeen Angus Prime Rib which is good for 2 persons.

Tea is served a little weak here - I don't like my spoon to stand up in it, but grey isn't a good look for tea - and that's my only complaint. Breakfast is generous, the menu extensive, service is excellent, the ambiance perfect.

We were staying at Dorchester and chose to eat at the Grill. From the moment we went in the service and attention to detail were fabulous. The cheese soufflé was quite simply delicious however we argued over who's starter was better as the lobster chowder and foie gras rivalled top spot.

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.
