Description: 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. The restaurant features a striking, hand-blown Murano glass chandelier and contrasting natural materials including zinc, copper and marble, set against butterscotch leather and oak parquet flooring. Pivoting wall panels create a separate ambience from day to night, creating an inviting atmosphere morning to night.

Pricey for sure, but nectar for the Gods, The main dishes were superlative, the veal chop fabulous, my stake the same, a generous portion but at around 38 -46 for a main dish it should be.

What do you say when you go to somewhere which you expect to be special for a very special occasion .... and the experience is nowhere near what you had hoped it would be?

I'm not sure you can 'review' a restaurant in a luxury 5 star hotel where starters are around £18 and main courses around £30; where the cheapest bottle of wine is £40 and the list climbs to over £3,000 a bottle! You expect anything at that price level to be exceptional, fantastic, the best-best ever. Well it is pretty good... More

I was always a fan of the Grill at the Dorchester prior to the re-model. So I have to say I was a little disappointed with my latest excursion to this iconic spot. Firstly I would like to congratulate the Dorchester on a great re-model of the interior it looks fantastic, nice bar and backdrop. I started with the cooked... More

Food 2/3 Service 2/3 Ambience 2/3 Value for money 2/3 We visited for lunch the restaurant a.week after it's opening. I liked the fact it emphasises in good quality and simplicity (the chicken was excellent&very simple). Service can be improved in many ways. I would give it another try after some time.

After months of refurbishment, we finally went back to the The Grill at The Dorchester on the opening night - it was so disappointing. Where do I start? Upon entering - the room has had an horrendous makeover; gone was the unique tartan decor, with all its warmth, and in its place was a monochrome palette of gold and cream.... More

The first view of the new Grill is impressive. They have reduced the restaurant size by about a third and it now has around 65 covers. The décor is smart and sophisticated and a distinct improvement.
