The start of a new era, legendary dining room The Grill at The Dorchester opens its doors with a new menu and fresh concept. Young talent Tom Booton takes the helm as head chef at London's longstanding British restaurant, first established in 1931, bringing fresh ideas and a contemporary spin to the menu. Tom’s vibrant dishes reflect his passion for local London creatives and British suppliers – including The Grill’s ‘Lobster Thermidor Tart’ and a take on the classic chocolate treat ‘Double Decker’ which will be served at the Pudding Bar.

Tom’s British dishes will complement the new interpretation of The Grill with an update in the interiors and a more relaxed dining experience. An incredible and creative selection of puddings, a delectable cocktail menu and fabulous Champagnes are set to delight, whilst the addition of banquette seating will allow guests to relax into a long lunch or dinner.

Terrible value for money. We do not mind paying for good food but the food served was inadequate and did not warrant the amount of money. Service poor.

Not only was the standard of food and service excellent but once again your brilliant staff made the evening so enjoyable, particularly Lars. We were made to feel so welcome and the restaurant was very busy and buzz, but excellent servica and attention was maintained throughout the evening. The menu is a little limited, but the flavours and taste of each dish was fabulous. We were pleased that the restaurant now serves both halal and non halal meat. Indeed we look forward to our next visit to the Grill.

Amazing so impressed from the minute we were shown to our table and taken on our delicious food journey. The staff were so warm and friendly and a special thanks to Amy & Nardin both would be are a credit to any business. The food, portions presentation & taste are second to none, I would not have changed one thing. Credit to the chief who even attends each table at the start of the evening ... what a nice touch!

Really enjoyed my 2nd visit to The Grill !
Lovely decor, service and food. I had 4 courses (beef tartare, veal sweet breads, ribeye beef and trifle for desert).
All were really enjoyable and will fill you up for sure. The chips were a side dish and came with gravy mayonnaise - the best chips ever!
For £75 for 4 courses I felt it was exceptional value for money 😀

We were expecting great things from the Dorchester grill however we were left disappointed by the set menu on offer on the Saturday evening we visited. I would Reccomend the savoy grill anytime over the Dorchester, we will not be returning.

With lockdown easing we have returned to our quarterly "boys" lunches and this was our first venue. A very attractive dining room with very helpful and friendly staff we enjoyed a superb meal. My friends' beef tartare and sweetbreads starters were very good, my squid bolognese was very small to the point that it was a little difficult to tell if it tasted delicious or not!! We were very impressed with the small but varied and very reasonably priced wine list - so refreshing to see this in a restaurant of this quality. We continued our "long" lunch on the rooftop in the sun with rather too much rose but had a wonderful day. We will be back

Slightly disappointing table but perhaps we should have asked for a round table when we booked.
Food excellent but starters could have been more generous
Service top class and wine list fantastic if slightly overpriced

I had come to the grill for my birthday. Really disappointed with the food as I had to get it changed at one point due to the fact I didn’t enjoy it and get a different sauce to which they had then given me. However, I was not happy at all with the food and really sad by it

Dined with friends on Saturday evening. Our table was at 8pm it was very quiet when we arrived maybe two other tables going and the bar empty however the restaurant became more busy around 9.30pm. The bar is beautiful in itself with the decoration etc. We were seated quickly and started with cocktails, we received an amuse bouche which was good. The bread is to die for. We had an enjoyable evening the menu prices are ok three courses £60 and four courses £75 however the wines are expensive. Good for a special occasion!

Lovely lunch, excellent service, food was creative and beautifully plated by Tom Booton, the very young and talented chef and his team. Front of house was friendly with great service by Alessandro. I’ve recommended The Grill to several friends and we hope to come again soon. Oh...we also met Tom, all smiles and full of enthusiasm.

What a change. Last time I ate here it was somewhat ‘stuffy’ and not very exiting.
Our lunch was well prepared, beautifully presented and tasted great.
The atmosphere was markedly more relaxed than before, which made it way more pleasant.
A small criticism.....whilst the ‘theatre’ of sitting at a dessert bar watching the final touches of the desserts being prepared was great, the actual desserts were not of the same quality as the rest of the meal. Not bad, but not as good

As a regular costumer, every dining experience is different yet outstanding in every little detail.
I cant stop coming back.
