Hi there, what is the dress code, thinking about taking my wife here for dinner as a fine dining date, somewhere to dress nice. Is this a good place?

I usualy dress nice and the majority of the people do. However if a resident wants to dine without a tie, he is allowed to.

I usualy wear a cocktail

dress and a fur jacket and feel just right.

It was explained to me that it would be unfair if a resident is turned away as for the time being it is his home.

Smart wear. I wore a Lounge Suit with Waistcoat and a Bow-Tie but then I always wear Bow-Ties. Most gentlemen were similarly smartly dressed. The Ladies of course always dress-up. Have a great evening.

Dress is smart casual, which means you will see some folks in jeans but most tend to be in slacks and a dress shirt and some jackets. Ladies were in slacks and some dresses — not formal but business type attire. Nice jeans are acceptable but my preference with my family is not to wear them to dinner unless `we are at a casual restaurant (like a pub).

Smart casual. Jeans are allowed but not with slashes. No trainers. We wear jeans but not with t shirts, polo shirts are fine.

The dress code is smart casual, if you want to dress up you won't be out of place.

I went for Sunday Lunch. Dress code states smart casual, but people turned up in trainers, t-shirts, jeans etc....not what I was expecting at all and made the restaurant feel casual. A date night would be fabulous at CUT, which is opposite the Dorchester...and is their sister hotel 45 Park Lane. Its stunning....
