Birthday Sunday lunch

We have been to the grill room for a Sunday lunch in the past and enjoyed it. It is a convenient place to meet with our daughters living in different parts of London. The bar is good ( not as good as the savoy). The grill room has been refurbished in late 2014 and now has a French theme. A... read more

Went to the Dorchester Grill as a pre-Xmas treat with my mum after going to the ballet. We had an early sitting and the restaurant was quiet but soon livened up. The staff are excellent, really polite and helpful and there's a really pleasant atmosphere, not pretentious at all as often these places can be. We both had the salmon... More

I have been four times since the reopening and have enjoyed it immensely every time. The main course of confit of shoulder of lamb with celeriac, carrot, marrons (chestnut) and sweet potato puree was amazing and the best lamb dish I ever had. Followed by the cheese which was a good sized portion of two British cheeses, Lincolnshire poacher and... More

Had lunch today at The Grill, table of eight, and everyone was extremely impressed with the food and service. By no means a cheap meal but not one person felt let down by their food choice. Myself and two others had the cheese soufflé starter, something I have regularly if seen on a menu, and is definitely the best I... More

Start with the plus points. Exceptional and discreet but attentive service throughout which was a pleasure. Parts of the decor look tired already. The leather seat backs that surround the room look like they are crying out for a very good buff up and clean. The thin glass panelling (intersected by gaze decoration) is showing black marks and points presumably... More

If you bring along your treadmill when you visit the newly reopened Grill Room at the Dorchester, you’ll find that it’s easy to pace yourself with the trashy thumping, so-called ‘music’ playing throughout an otherwise pleasant meal. Personally, I preferred the old decor of the Grill Room that seemed to epitomize “Old England.” Perhaps my wife and I are too... More

Everything as you would expect at the Dorchester was A1 +++ We attended for Sunday Lunch and could not find fault in anything, even the cost was reasonable for the experience. Will be back again next time we visit london.

First of all, The Grill dining room is excellent in terms of décor and lighting. Where it falls down, from my viewpoint, is the table layouts in the room. If you are dining here are a couple, chances are you will be sitting next to another couple, the gap between the tables for two (particularly in the central dining area)... More
