Our family went to Alain Ducasse for lunch and we were blown away by the venue, the decor and the service.

However, as a vegetarian I was extremely disappointed. Vegetable soup to start and a bowl of vegetables for my entree. You would have thought a three star Michelin restaurant could have been more imaginative and thoughtful and I was left wholly disappointed.

The food as well as the staff make this fine place one of the finest you could ever visit!

The service from "Wine specialists" like Chris, and the "Head Waiter" Thomas, make for a wonderful dining experience!

This is a World Class Hotel, and the dining is second to none that I have experienced in London, or anywhere.

Will look forward to going back in September!

Bread was was not fresh, and was served after we finished the the first and started the SECOND bottle of wine.
Food was badly prepared - the fish was FROZEN and re-heated, but the core was still very cold!!!
We had to send it back, and wait a long time to get the replacement.
the sauces were too watery.

Mr. Ducasse took over 1000GBP for the dinner and wine,
thank heavens the wine was not made by the the Ducasse Kitchen...

We left apologizing to our guests for the embarrassing evening.

Having eaten at several fine dining establishments ranging from 1 to 3 stars, our expectation was high for Alain Ducaase. How disappointing it was. The Dorchester is stunning and the Promenade Bar a great precursor for the meal. We were greeted and sat at our table. Service was fair, almost conveyor belt like - we had difficulty on deciding what wine to choose and decided on the wine pairings without any assistance or suggestions from the sommelier. He was quite happy that we picked the £14.00 a head pairings with no input required. Our sommelier at Marcus Wareing at a The Berkeley was amazing with our similar dilemma and took the time to ensure the wine we chose was ideal for the meal.

Having decided on the 7 course tasting menu at £125.00 a head, we anticipated a magnificent culinary journey we have previously experienced in so many other restaurants. Our amuse bouche was certainly not an amusement for our mouths - a bowl of choux pastry buns that were used as a filler, as was the endless stream of bread and butter. The Iris Sea Urchin was sublime and that was where it ended. I dared to question the pasta as being a little on the wrong side of al dente- mon dieu, you would have thought I had just blown up the Eiffel Tower for the vitriol that followed. It is the way chef serves it to add to the dishes overall texture I was told; I stand corrected Mademoiselle!!!!

Average food, average service,definitely not worth its 3 Stars. Story Restaurant, Viajante, Le Manoir Aux Quat'saisons, Marcus Wareing at a The Berkeley, L'Enclume and The Fat Duck to name but a few we have dined at leave Alain Ducasse way down on our list of return journeys. Focus on your food, not solely on your name and location.
