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.

After a less perfect experience last year, the Grill at the Dorchester invited us for a free dinner at the Grill. Not only was the service perfect but the food was superb. With great appreciation to the manager of the Dorchester!

I booked a surprise meal at the Grill for my girlfriends 40th birthday celebrations. The staff were delightful and the food was fantastic. I would definitely recommend a visit and also the prime rib to share. Delicious.

The Dorchester Hotel has been closed for some time whilst it was being redecorated so we were expecting a sumptuous setting even in the Grill Room - and were not disappointed.

I went to The Grill with two friends and I was really not disappointed. I felt that the service was truly attentive, professional and welcoming.

I have been a regular customer here for decades and well before the 2 Grill refurbishments. When the newly designed and decorated Grill reopened last November they did away with the silver roast trolley and the traditional presentation of roast rib or sirloin of beef carved in front of the customer from the trolley. At least at first, they were... More

Ate here with my partner and his family on the Easter Week End. The Grill has been recently refurbished and the result is smart and stylish, food excellent, staff extremely professional and pleasant without being over familiar.

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.
