A word from The Savoy Grill
The Savoy Grill dining room has been restored to its former glory, with original 1920's Art Deco lighting, lustrous wood panelling, mohair velvet coverings and gold leaf lined faux turtle shell-clad walls all reflecting the room's glamorous heritage. Head Chef Andy Cook, has created a menu that is inspired by classic British and French dishes of old and includes the theatre and excitement of table side service for a number of dishes. Situated in an elevated room set behind a glass wall, The Savoy Grill Chef's Table offers up to 8 guests a fascinating view of the kitchen pass and all the action of a theatrical service.

    On arriving at the Savoy grill after booking nearly two months ago the table was only laid up for two. We stood and watched as they set up up for four in front of us. After ordering our food and drinks, starters arrived and I had to ask where our drinks were? I then had to ask again for our drinks that eventually came during the main course. It was not that busy and with about 20 staff plus on the floor this is no excuse. The main course was beef bourginon with creamy mash potato, all four of us ordered it. It was barely warm the whole meal. I'm sorry but this was an embarrassment, and at this point I just wanted to pay up and go enjoy the rest of the evening. Finally the bill arrives with an extra bottle of water added to it. On questioning it I was told it was done at the beginning of our meal. But to save embarrassment in front of my friends I smiled and paid. After being recemended by a friend at work I was very disappointed. For the money we paid and the experience we had I would rather go to a chain restaurant were at least you don't have to worry about expectations.

    My husband and I had lunch in the Savoy Grill last Sunday and were most impressed by the friendly, attentive service of all staff. We couldn't fault the service at all, so please extend our thanks to all concerned. The food was very, very good but not outstanding-beautifully presented and delicious. Just not quite the 'wow factor ' that I thought was synonymous with The Savoy. I would most definitely return and think that the lunch set menu offers excellent value for money in a top London restaurant.

    My well off son didn't bat an eyelid at the price. My postman son said the cost would keep him for a month or two. For me this was special for my wife's birthday, so we pushed the boat out. But not very often, I would say that the price of the wine was the biggest thing I noticed. But your only seventy once!!!!!!!

    Went for Sunday lunch. Mixed clientele and no noticeable dress code. Opted for the three course set meal because of affordability, but it was obvious that the roast beef was the thing to go for.

    We really enjoyed our meal, everyone was very friendly. My only criticism would be that the tables to the left-handside are too close together. You had to turn side-ways to get through to your seat which is embarrassing as you couldn't help but knock into the other guests' table. Also, we felt like we were on a conveyor belt with regards to pre-dinner drinks being served, as the waiter just worked his way along the line of tables. Not what you would expect in a restaurant of this calibre.

    We visited on Saturday night when the restaurant was very busy. The decor is lovely and feels special. The service is very attentive - we couldn't believe how many staff were there. Our food came very quickly - maybe a bit too quickly, but all courses were fabulous - especially the lime cheesecake which was Devine.

    Had a very enjoyable meal on Saturday evening, following a matinee trip to the theatre. Excellent table, food, and service. Meal for two, starters, main, one bottle of wine, shared pudding, 1 coffee and brandy was just over £200. Expensive but worth it, and a nice treat for my wife's birthday. Lovely atmosphere and service was perfect, not rushed, but not too slow. Would happily return soon. My only tiny minor observation were the menu cards, becoming quite worn around the edges. I was kind of expecting a daily printed menu for the price and level of service.

    Good restaurant with a classical setting. The food was simple, but delicious. The only problem for us was the service. We went for a pre-theatre meal and have almost missed our performance due to staff members being unable to find our coats after the meal, despite the fact we had a correct ticket for it.

    Chose it for the Wellington and veg options for the family, veg selection could have been a little better, but otherwise the good was really nice. Table layout could have been better. Service was good, friendly patient staff, very thoughtful. Good wine selection but expensive for my taste. Heard and seen the Wellington so many times on the screen. And now I know why

    Mysterion
    Dined on 8/11/2014
    The Savoy Grill is set in outstanding surroundings, one can get a real sense of being amongst the rich and famous there, but alas although the flavours of the food were acceptable it felt like the food was muffled, that is to say that it could have been louder and more pronounced. Ultimately it turns out that what you get is a cross between a fine dining experience and a good gastropub rather than the expected subliminal transcendence that the decor and opulence indicate. The main course (beef wellington) and starter (bisque) were good quality, but the cinnamon doughnuts were not so well presented or delectable, neither were the petit fours. The other guests enjoyed theirs but one could tell that expectations were similarly muffled.

    Booked a table for lunch but managed to be 30 mins late, however, we were accommodated with no fuss. Restaurant was busy but this did not affect the service which was totally professional, Found all of the staff attentive and knowledgeable about the food and wines.We decided on the Set Lunch which was very good value. The the presentation of all the dishes was exceptional and they tasted as good as they looked. We would recommend the Cornish Hake and Beef Bourguignon, The flavours were amazing. No room for puds but were presented with some petite fours (scrummy) and then a very special birthday surprise, which was much appreciated (I had told them when booking but was not expecting anything). Loved the whole experience

    I went with a group of Friends , Seven in total. All pensioners . We chose the Grill instead of afternoon tea because it was more in line with our budget we arrived early but had to wait quite a while after our booking time , for our table. We t had a drink in the American bar. but that too added to the cost of our outing The Set meal was very good value and most of us had that . Al a carte too was varied with choices within our budget, Service was good . But as we were all pensioners the wine list was expensive.and although Staff were very good, the wine waiter could have been a bit more jolly. Everyone of us enjoyed our food and the overall experience .

    On 6th November, a good friend and I were treated to an excellent experience at The Savoy Grill. The service was explemary with our waiter (sorry I didn't see his name) explaining the menu in relation to my fruit and nut allergies. The menu was extensive and our choices were spot on from the grilled salmon to the sweet langoustines, the champagne cocktails and the desserts of blackberry millefiune and pineapple soufflé with coconut ice cream could not be faulted. Definitely an Oliver Twist moment! I can whole heartedly recommend this lunch venue. The only minor amendment would be some petit fours with our excellent Earl Grey tea.

    On arrival we were informed our table was not ready. We therefore headed into the American cocktail bar, my biggest regret was leaving this bar! Our table was eventually ready 45 minutes later than booked. No apology. We waited 30 minutes for our wine and another 30 min for a desert menu, however by this point we were so fed up with the service we left feeling very disappointed. I would not recommend The Savoy Grill. There are much much better places to dine in a London. Although the food was good the service left a bitter taste in our mouths.

    Our waitress was nice, but inexperienced. She knocked my food on to the table, and forgot our deserts, so waited over an hour for that. Apart from that I loved the restaurant, and the fact it was not pretentious. We were celebrating my wifes 50th birthday, and had been in london all day, so felt a little dishevelled. We were made to feel very welcome, and loved the quality of the food.
