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.

It's my first visit to the grill. I've been to the Dorch for afternoon tea (another top experience) I simply cannot wait to go again! The staff firstly were so attentive.. In a ghostly way that your drinks were always full and actually had great knowledge, extremely friendly and had great humour. The surroundings are opulent but comfortable. Now.. The... More

Lots to like about this place, that is the service. Thought long and hard before writing this review as I wanted to love it, sadly I didn't. The service is excellent, of that there can be no doubt. The food though is, well, overpriced. The breakfast especially has no presentation or forethought and is very disappointing, had it not been... More

The Grill room has been through a number of changes over the last 10 years or so, more often trying new styles for the sake of it, none of which worked, when really, it all worked perfectly before !! Finally, after many months and months more of waiting, they are back, and in style. Under a Ducasse protege and influence... More

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.
