I'm a massive fan of Alain Ducasse - he's so imaginative with his food and creations. Every dish is mouth watering and bursting with amazing flavours. The staff are attentive and there to explain every dish! We even got a tour of the kitchen which was amazing! If your really looking to wow someone special then book the Lumière room!... More

In brief, its worth going to this restaurant just to experience the service which is absolutely amazing, from start to finish they were friendly, knowledgeable and incredibly accommodating and helpful. The food was really good but not the three star truly amazing that we were hoping for, my starter was somewhat cold but the rest was very pleasant. The surroundings... More

I must in this review stress two things 1.) The value for money of the lunch menu and 2.) The quality of the food and service.

Treated ourselves to a set lunch and we were not disappointed. Wonderful light cheese 'profiteroles' as a appetiser then a great tasting menu. The sight of a whole Stilton even persuaded us to pay the extra for a cheese course. The sommeliers wine selections were great (first time we had ever seen a champagne trolley but we resisted it).

This restaurant has had a lot of focus on it being 3 Michelin star but in my opinion it's over rated. We did the 7 course tasting with the paired wines and say with regret that it was a disappointment. The evening started off wonderfully by being shown directly to our table where we then had a glass of Krug... More

Lucky the awful start to our evening did not ruin the overall experience. We arrived with one less guest, on arrival we advised the receptionist.

Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester is trading on name recognition and a monied clientele that don't know the difference and don't care about the price.

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.
