The three Michelin-starred restaurant Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester in Mayfair, traditionally the smartest address in town, represents a new approach to fine dining. Professionalism and attention to detail are always paramount, but there is a new aura of whimsy and pleasure as well. The restaurant’s spectacular, elegant interior - by design team Jouin Manku - and breath-taking dining experience has enchanted London’s gourmets and critics. For most mortals, a meal at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester is dining for special celebrations, and the sublime quality of the food and the easy pomp of the service live up to expectations. But an ideal and affordable way to sample the contemporary French cuisine is the set lunch menu, highlighting the very highest quality seasonal ingredients. Favourite dishes include Lobster medallion, chicken quenelles, Périgord truffle and homemade semolina pasta or Cornish turbot, Kalibos cabbage, chestnut and clementine.

    Absolutely loved the food, perfection is an understatement. The offer to meet the chef, was an honour. However, was just blown away at the price of the champagne, and worse, served in a cheap glass. For two glasses of champagne, I could have bought the whole bottle. The sommelier’s accent was extremely difficult to understand, and I felt it was impolite to ask him to repeat himself, so I chose the Champagne, that was the only one I understood! When I received the bill, the only thing that spoiled the evening, was the outrageous cost of the drink,( champagne) otherwise, everything was superb.

    Very disappointed with the service. They crashed the plates of the a mouse bouche and only gave two portions. I have been to many three star Michelin services. This felt more like a 1-star. If that. Disappointing.

    We are high end foodies - we have been to multiple Michelin Star restaurants and this is WAY overpriced, food quality is just okay - not three star quality. Honestly - we think they get their rating because of the beautiful hotel they are located in and not because of the food. Gordon Ramsay’s Petrus blew this restaurant away. The people, the wine, the courses of food and especially the fabulous pastries. I do not recommend going here unless you enjoy paying 1,100 to 1,500 British pounds or more. Go to more one star or two star places.

    We really enjoyed our experience at Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester. The service was efficient and the staff very helpful in explaining the various dishes, we had the taster menu. The food was totally outstanding and absolutely delicious. As for value for money we thought it a tad expensive as we have had taster menus before which included wines, but this didn't as was far more expensive. Great experience but perhaps just a one off.

    Beautiful room, very attentive staff (and lots of them — perhaps too many). The food is very good, of course, but not as creative as (and significantly more expensive than) the food in some other comparable London restaurants. But that may reflect the overhead costs: there are few places in London (or anywhere else in the world) as expensive as Park Lane.

    This is an exceptional restaurant however customers should be very careful when ordering. The waiter introduced the menu to me and then offered to my business partner an additional item to a main course - truffles. He did not indicate the price. The meal was good but when the bill came there was a charge of £157 for the truffle shavings. Outrageous. I expected to pay more but nothing like this. It ruined my night.

    Very traditionally French with a few expensive ingredients but nothing we would go back for or haven’t eaten much more interesting and tasty somewhere else. Don’t get me wrong: Technically it was perfectly executed and staff was so professional, but we missed the heart and fire. Not even beautifully presented… quite a disappointment.

    It's easy to see why this restaurant received 3 Michelin Stars! From the skill in food preparation to the first-class service received from the staff, you won't find a better overall experience at many places. Everybody was accommodating, answering questions, educating us about each wine and dish from our tasting menu, and escorting us to the restrooms which were located in another area of the hotel, I will definitely try and come back on our next trip!

    Fabulous restaurant. The only complaint is with the wine pairing with the tasting menu. While the wines were all outstanding the individual pours were too big. Needless to say we were quite tipsy by the end of the meal.

    Most disappointing fine dining experience for me ever, having visited a fair few Michelin starred places. Food was unimaginative at best and downright poor at worst - at least the wines were very good and sensibly priced. But the worst thing when we gave feedback on the experience, was that the staff actually got quite aggressive and interrogated us about each dish even after being quite specific about what was wrong. For the life of me, cannot recommend this place.

    The service was impeccable , not at all stuffy. The food showed real skill both in execution and presentation . Loses a point only for the lack of any real innovation - very standard French. Can’t fault the tastes and flavours just needs a bit of a wow factor.

    The hotel of the restaurant is under renovation and therefore the restaurant is only accessible from the back entrance, which is also a smoking area. Not very appealing especially if you dislike the smell of cigarette and having to make your way through a crowd. The staff at the front desk were very nice, kind and welcoming. The restaurant itself has a nice ambience with modern but elegant decor. Our table was somewhat hidden between two doors, which made it feel quite private but hence we had the view of the whole restaurant/ other tables, which was nice. With the exception of the amuse bouche and the appetiser, I found the dishes visually unappealing and most of them ‘écœurant’. I really had to force myself to finish them. The quality of the ingredients was exceptional, but all the different items mixed together and with the sauce, the dishes were definitely not to my liking to say the least. As I said they were ´écoeurant’. However, what made our experience very disappointing was the service. After the meal and asking for the bill, we had to wait at least 20 minutes until someone looked at us and we could ask for the bill again. Nobody came to check if we were OK, if we needed anything, they were busy with other tables. In addition, few days prior to the dinner I was asked by the restaurant if we are celebrating anything. I happily shared with them that I am celebrating my first birthday outside of lockdown. For this occasion, they kindly put a candle on the dessert from the menu. Nothing creative, nothing special, nothing memorable. A candle on the dessert that was part of the tasting menu. Oh, and placed in front of my husband!!! Not me. This was just the icing on the cake. We have been to numerous, 1, 2, 3 Michelin star restaurants all over the world. This was the most disappointing experience I have ever had. Surely, this is a birthday dinner I will never forget! For all the wrong reasons unfortunately.

    Service and ambiance were very good, and the various dishes, although excellent, needless to say, were stylistically too similar to be as interesting as they might have been. With a 3 star Michelin rating, one would have expected a bit more imagination. And, just for the record, the prices are astronomical.

    This was our 2nd time at the restaurant and it was as good as the first time. We had the tasting menu which was heavily fish which suited us. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Most of the guests were British as on the last time but I’m sure that’s not the case in non pandemic times.

    The service was very good but none of the staffs wear a mask so see if you are comfortable with it. Food wise, amuse bouche and the starters were good, but nothing special. The main was just acceptable - overcomplexed the boar so any meat with that sauce prob taste the same. Dessert were the highlight, chestnut and yuzu was good, the chocolate was perfect - complex texture and flavours balanced just right, rich, smooth but not heavy. The drinks were good too. Overall we were happy with the meal.
