Mayfair’s Colony Grill is a relaxed, classic, New York style grill room with a timeless menu of transatlantic favourites, grills and steaks, and a big helping of old-world glamour. With a warm, lively, sophisticated atmosphere that suits all occasions, it is open all day, for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as brunch at weekends. The wide-ranging menu of crowd-pleasers includes New York Shrimp Cocktail, American sandwiches & salads, a selection of dishes prepared table-side, including Steak Tartare and Bananas Foster, and a large grill section encompassing Dover Sole, as well as grain-fed USDA Prime Rib-Eye and 30-day dry–aged Aberdeen Angus Fillet, all served with fries and a choice of sauces. As Tatler.com declared, “there is really no better place to get your carnivorous fix than The Colony Grill.” For dessert, consider the iconic, oft-instagrammed “bespoke” ice cream sundaes. The comprehensive wine list takes in European classics and a wide selection from the New World.

Private Dining

Whether it’s for a family celebration, a meeting or business lunch, a drinks or cocktail party or a wedding reception, The Colony at The Beaumont offers the choice of The Cub Room or The Lotos Room, each of which has its own options and ambience, but both rich in Art Deco references and décor.

Really great find. The bar was nice and quiet beforehand and then they didn't rush us for our table - leaving about 45 mins after booking time before a nudge.
Starters arrived swiftly with some really light and fresh crab cakes and then we had steaks and fish, both cooked really well. The steak seemed a little high priced although a large portion at 14oz for a NY Strip so can't complain about the serving.
Overall really good evening out.

Loved this place. Great ambiance, super food and the service was just right. On the expensive side but you get what you pay for so didn't feel it was overpriced and the quality of the food was exceptional. We were meeting up with family and it was perfect for this occasion, not too noisy, very comfortable seating and most importantly plenty of room between tables. Highly recommend

Just disappointing really. Some of the dishes, even the most simple chosen by the group, were really disappointing. Service was pretty poor - you really had to make an effort to order a drink for example. Considering the price, it wasn’t good enough. We’ve been before but won’t rush back after this experience. It feels as though standards have dropped.

We’ve visited the Colony Grill many times and always enjoyed it but on this occasion two of our party of six had to send our main courses back. All dealt with perfectly efficiently and courteously by staff but a little disappointed. I’m sure it was a one off.

I booked the Colony Grill for my husband's birthday and we had the steak menu which was delicious and great value for money. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special and the staff were very attentive without being to invasive. They prepared a wonderful plate of petit fours decorated with a happy birthday message for my husband.

The only minor criticism I have is that at times other diners were particularly noisy but this is no reflection on the staff.
Thank you very much to everyone at the Colony Grill for a wonderful evening.

Lunch at the Colony Grill!
What could be better.
Brilliant Sunday Roast.
Service impeccable
I noticed that a famous family was having lunch on a table down the middle of the room-16 of them. All behaving perfectly.
The customers and the staff were all super cool and completely left them alone
It says everything about the integrity of the staff and the owners

We came here looking for good Steak action and it really lived up to it's potential on that front. We went for the prospect of an authentic American style Steak and we found what we were looking for in the perfectly cooked, highly flavoured, very tender New York Strip and the USDA Prime Rib Eye.

The place feels opulent but is relaxed and has a great Jazz Age vibe to it with Art Deco stylings which makes it a perfect setting for taking your partner out for a birthday or anniversary and to dress up a bit.

All in all, it was a very pleasant dining experience and would go back again for more of those awesome American style Steaks. Perfection!

Enjoyed a long, late lunch here with friends. The wood and leather interior, and tasty, comforting food lend themselves to whiling away a cold December afternoon. Service was attentive but not over bearing, we never felt rushed but it was a very quiet time of day. Nothing exotic on the menu but the grill classics were handled very well.

Unbelievably well located, yet quiet and intimate, the atmosphere is what makes this restaurant. Cosy tables and booths, understated lighting and discreet but attentive service underline that this is a premium experience. You will pay for that experience, and while the food is good, it is not the main attraction here - so go for the overall vibe and - if you can - don't look too hard at the bill.

Absolutely delicious. This was my birthday dinner, having already celebrated my husband’s birthday at this restaurant months ago. One of the best steak tartares in London. Incredible “design your own” icecream sundaes. Great Gatsby decor and excellent, attentive service. Part of the same group as the Delauney & the Wolseley restaurants but perhaps more relaxed and certainly smaller. Love it here.
