We had the set meal , 3 coursed £27, there were only 2 choices for the Mains, but the food was delicious. The gratis bonne mouche was one of the most generous I have had in any restaurant. The staff were attentive but not pushy. We had coffee and cognac after the meal and the cognac was £28 each, which... More

We went here on the 3 course fixed menu deal including a glass of champagne for £39.00. There was a amuse bouche and plenty of fresh bread before the starter arrived. We both had the Chicken Terrine followed by the duck confit for me and the Sea Bream for hubbie. We then paid a £3.00 supplement each to have the... More

While in London for business, I was invited to The Grill for lunch on a Saturday. It was very quiet when we first arrived but I soon realized the locals dine a bit later and by 2:00 the place was packed, mostly with families appearing to be enjoying special occasions together. We started with the lobster bisque which was a... More

Poor service, very average food and a noisy restaurant. Staff are skilled at looking extremely busy whilst in fact just circulating the tables without doing anything at all

Their famous soufle puds were well worth the surchsrge on the basic menu price . The extras before and after... More

  • This restaurant is at The Dorchester
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

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
