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 ‘Sauté gourmand’ of LOBSTER, truffled quenelles and homemade pasta or Dry aged BEEF, artichoke and bone marrow.

    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.

    One of the best restaurants that we have ever been to. The atmosphere was smooth and tranquil. The food was spectacularly tasty and well presented. Everyone in the restaurant has carried out the perfect service. Flawless, praises all round, cannot fault them. We would love to come back many more times.

    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.

    Best experience ever. The food was exquisite, the staff was friendly, courteous and timing was perfect. It was a pricy experience for us as we usually don’t spend over £400 for fine food. We do not regret though. We feel blessed and privileged to have been able to enjoy this moment.

    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.

    I have been to many Michelin starred restaurants so had high expectations. I thought the tasting menu was average, none of the courses were unique and I didn’t experience anything new. Don’t get me wrong, it was very tasty but as I sit here a week later writing the review I do not recall a single dish.

    The level of service and quality of food is as you would expect from an establishment and chef of this calibre, 5 star throughout. We did the taster, which compared to some of its peers, was a little more expensive, but the courses were well laid out and complimented each other perfectly. Service was impeccable. HOWEVER, guys, sort the beer selection out. How can you have one of the finest wine lists around and then *only* serve Peroni (screams mid tier Pizza restaurant, it wasn't even Grande Reserva) and London Pride (anything but, in my opinion) London is full of great local craft brewers; good grief, even a visit to the local Tesco's can turn up a couple of cracking beers. Lockdown is no excuse when you can still have a 25 year old champagne on the books. I can't drop a star because of it, but it was close.
