We went on a special deal 3 courses £40 with a glass champagne It was very good apart from my daughters rather bland vegetable stew, the veggie options are not very inspiring. The hotel is lovely with a giant Christmas tree in the foyer and choir boys singing carols round the piano and the wonderful model of The Dorchester in... More

A £39 special offer for three courses and a glass of champagne on Park Lane sounds like a deal... But that's not counting on the wine starting at £50 a bottle. The food was pleasant enough . My friend liked the beetroot and goat curd starter and the lemon-meringue tart. The confit de canard was lovely , although nothing like... More

We used a £39 special offer for three courses and a glass of champagne thinking we would get a bargain. But we hadn't counted on the wine costing at least £45 a bottle (in the end we had a mediocre cahors for £50). There was nothing wrong with the food. I liked my beetroot and goat curd starter and the... More

Although the food was pretty much as good as usual, there were numerous faults with the service which normally is faultless. Firstly the cut bread which was offered had been standing in the room for too long and the cut edges had become dry, I was not offered the glass of champagne which is included in the set lunch and...

I was lucky enough to celebrate my 30th birthday here over lunch with my family. For lunch, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming with a nice hustle and bustle coming from the back of the restaurant where the kitchen team pop in and out to plate up and add finishing touches to dishes. We arrived early but were soon joined... More

We took our daughter for her 18th birthday having had a lovely meal here for our wedding anniversary. I could not fault this, the food was fabulous and the service superb. Would definitely recommend the souffle for dessert. A lovely place for a special occasion, we definitely felt special.

In the Dorchester or sister hotel 45 Parklane you have a lot of choice in restaurants. The Grill is a good one. Good food for good price! Ambiance is really ok!

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.
