We booked a table to enjoy the £39 meal. We didn't expect alot but WOWZZA what a surprise we had. The staff were second to none and the food was so delicious. It was advertised as 3 courses but there were 5 and a glass of Champagne . I can recall every second of my visit. Fantastic team. xxxx

Absolutely fabulous. Friendly staff. From the moment you arrive you feel that the staff are interested in you. Always there without being too intrusive. Fantastic food and wine. The set menu was great value and extremely tasty. The chilled tomato soup was great as was the leg of lamb. A great experience.

Best meal I have had in a long time and priced very well. We have the three course dinner for 39 pounds. We asked for a substitute for salmon for the main dish and they agreed. Our waitress was outstanding. The heirloom tomato salad was refreshing and extraordinary. The salmon was cooked perfectly to order and the cherry and chocolate... More

We booked a table for six for Sunday lunch, odd situation when the restaurant requests your credit card details through an unsecured link, a telephone call later sorted it out but still be aware. The lunch itself is superb, staff were really attentive and the beef we were served was carved at the table with enormous Yorkshire puddings. Deserts were... More

Three courses and a glass of champagne for £39 - who could resist? It's not a beautiful building but inside is stunning. Very opulent with the most incredible flower arrangements everywhere.

Did the LP/FT set dinner, 5 courses and a glass of Laurent Perrier Rose thrown in. From start to finish, the food was excellent, with the salmon on a pea/bean purée (so summery) and the lamb, wonderfully tender and slightly crispy on the outside, the highlights. The sevice was friendly, professional and very welcoming which, for me was important as... More

Description
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.

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.
