What a lovely place to be! The food is delicious, the service impeccable (yet friendly and welcoming) and the surroundings are just so glamorous. It was a real treat to step out of the hustle and bustle of London into this other world. We had a drink in the bar before being shown to our table and the waiters were... More

I recently saw a lovely offer for 3 courses and champagne at The Grill at The Dorchester for £39 which is a real bargain for what we got! The Grill is not what I expected at The Dorchester, being very contemporary in style, the staff very slick at their jobs with every course being silver served which was surprising for... More

The grill restaurant is a very grand room, in a very plush hotel. The service was excellent, the food was also excellent. We had a deal from a website which gave us 3 courses and a glass of bubbly, it was well worth it. The only thing which I thought was strange is they never gave us butter knives, it's... More

Always nice to visit The Dorchester and our lunch at The Grill was very good indeed. A fine heritage tomato salad, followed by an excellent sea bream and a delectable peach Melba, washed down with a couple of glasses of Laurent Perrier was much enjoyed . Staff are relaxed, friendly and efficient and the ambiance of The Grill is informal... More

The Grill at the Dorchester is one of the most beautiful dining rooms I have visited. The recent makeover has retained much of the traditional, and even listed, aspects of the venue and subtly combined it with a slightly modern twist. As is the norm in high class restaurants nowadays the food was excellent but small in portion and very... More

I thought this review had been completed in January! We have been going to the Dorchester for a Christmas get-together for some years now - but the jollity has deteriorated over the last couple of years. I think Christmas 2015 is the last time we will go to our old haunt. There was a dismal lack of Christmas Festivity in... 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.
