Description: Re-launching on 14 November 2014, The Grill at The Dorchester boasts new timeless interiors and a new menu featuring grill favourites for breakfast, lunch and dinner, designed by Alain Ducasse’s protégé, head chef Christophe Marleix and his team. 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 protégé Christophe Marleix has created new seasonal menus. Delicious dishes range from grill favourites alongside the restaurant’s signature lobster chowder and an extensive sweet soufflé menu – the first of its kind in London. Counter top style seating and an open rotisserie will add to the lively and indulgently relaxed experience. Lively and welcoming, the re-imagined restaurant fuses The Dorchester’s iconic elegance with a contemporary tone and creative details by interior architect Bruno Moinard. 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 for the evening, creating an inviting atmosphere morning to night.

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. The staff I was told, were all newly recruited and I must say were all very smart, very polite and friendly. As well as... More

We went to The Grill Room after the renovation...Nov 2014. I must admit the new decor is really nice. The service was fantastic. The meat dishes were all very yummy.

Breakfast into lunch into dinner simply because I chose not to remove myself. Newspapers brought to the table, impeccable service at every moment, my guests were escorted to and from the table as they came and went. We sampled almost everything on the menu (happily) including the wines. We'll try the spirits next time.

The service at The Grill is impeccable. As one would expect, the decor and ambience is second to none, however despite my fellow diner's comments that her food (roast Beef) was wonderful - my vegetarian main course was simply too small. Whilst I wouldn't class myself as someone with a huge appetite, I left the restaurant feeling hungry - certainly... More

Impeccable service, fantastic food and wonderful wine flight. Priced appropriately for Central London at a headline hotel, did not feel for one minute the price was out of sink with the experience.
