The Grill at the Dorchester
Venue says Take a front row seat at our wine counter evenings and enjoy a wine and canapé journey covering six different pairings for £59.

This venerable Mayfair restaurant reopened in 2014, having been given a new lick of paint and a little bit of a makeover. Well, you'd need one too if you'd been around since 1931. By the looks of things, it remains one of the grandest places in London in which to eat. Service will no doubt be every bit as impressive, too.

As the name implies, it majors in grilled meats. Expect dishes such as Welsh lamb with polenta au gratin, salsify and almond, wild venison with a red wine jus, Highland Wagyu sirloin, pan-seared and braised pigeon, grilled suckling pig and grilled John Dory with mussels, jerusalem artichoke and kale. 

Set lunch, dinner and pre-theatre menus also feature, as do Sunday roasts.

The Grill at the Dorchester says
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, executive chef Guillaume Katola has created new seasonal menus.

Delicious dishes range from grill favourites alongside the restaurant’s signature blue lobster chowder and an extensive sweet soufflé menu (the first of its kind in London) plus classics from the restaurant’s past such as the carving trolley and Sunday roast.

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.

The restaurant features a striking, hand-blown Murano glass chandelier and contrasting natural materials including zinc, copper and marble, set against butterscotch leather and oak parquet flooring. Pivoting wall panels create a separate ambience from day to night, creating an inviting atmosphere morning to night.

100% would go again.

It was a fantastic birthday meal with my family. We started with cocktails in the bar and we all tried different ones, the flavours worked well together on all of them. The way they were served was impeccable too, the best designed cocktail was in a sweet ,pretty teapot.

Once our table was ready they kindly carried our cocktails to the table and poiletly sat us at our table. The decor of The Grill was elegant and classy, plenty of height with traditional colours and patterns to represent the booming years of the Great British Empire.

Despite having a set menu for £39, 3 course dinner with Champagne on arrival, the choice was brilliant and the food was unbelievable.

The highlight was the chocolate soufflé at the end, there was a 20 minute wait for this but we were happy to wait. Hands down one of the best desserts I have ever tasted.

I had an impressive anniversary meal with my boyfriend at The Grill at the Dorchester. True, you need to love really fancy places and flashy decors. But if you are up for that kind of experience, do try this one. The staff was lovely, the food incredible and thanks to a deal found online we paid less than £50 each for a 3-courses meal with a glass of champagne. My favourite was the beef short rib with vegetables but don't forget to try as well their signature dish, the Chocolate Soufflé which was absolutely delicious.
