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. 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.

Very nice Restaurant inside the Dorcester, elegant. Great service and great location. Food is fine nothing to say but nothing special. I'll come back for sure. It's quite expensive but the gave some offer through open table.

I booked dinner via a 3 courses plus champagne for £39 deal and we were not disappointed! The food was delicious (the dessert was outstanding) and the service excellent. A great venue and lovely to be able to have a wander around such a wonderful hotel afterwards!

My boyfriend had booked a surprise meal on a Friday night for the two of us, which was a £39 set three course menu, including a glass of champagne. The service was very attentive, but a little slow - we were there for nearly 3 hours and had to wait 15 min to pay the bill after receiving it. The... More

My partner and I spent a mid week break in London, and having dined at Claridges last time we visited, we thought we'd try The Dorchester. Staff were extremely welcoming from the moment we walked in, always polite, helpful and smiling. We were slightly early for our reservation so had a drink at the bar. Good service, nice nibbles and... More

The Grill is a great place to eat if visiting London & you want to treat yourself. The staff were so friendly, knowledgeable & made us feel comfortable.

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.
