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.

Family of 4 went to the Sunday Roast . It was like stepping into a different world . You feel like royalty. I have never experienced better service . The food was perfectly cooked . Unforgettable experience . Expensive but worth every penny. Will forget the price but never the memory. 25th wedding anniversary.

Had a long celebration lunch here. Personally bar layout was not to my liking but that was more than made up by the stunning reception and fabulous food we had at the grill. Staff were friendly professional and helpful as always. Great experience and will return.

Met up with friends for an informal lunch. Excellent in every respect. Service, menu, friendliness of the staff. We had the set lunch menu, through Bookatable, which included a glass of champagne. Thoroughly enjoyable experience.

My wife and I dined here midweek and had a lovely meal. We skipped starters and had the rib of beef to share, given the amount of meat it was good value compared to the city steakhouses. The beef was delicious, cooked to perfection and exactly how we ordered. The sides were all very tasty as well. Wine was good... More

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.
