Reviews

  • An experience to remember

    Amazing food and an amazing experience. The staff made us feel very welcome and the food was second to none.
    Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
    Thank you

    Felt like a millionaire!

    It was just amazing. Service was superb, staff were super attentive, they made you feel like a millionaire and it made the evening out of this world. The Dorchester is a sight to behold in itself. The food was amazing a they were more than willing to change something you didn't truly like. My wife did this with her first course and the alternative was outstanding. What makes a dining experience for me is having a meal that you just cannot recreate at home. This experience blew everything else out of water!

  • We had an excellent meal

    We had an excellent meal, our only criticism was the upselling from the wine waiter, we ordered a £350 bottle of wine & he recommended an £850 bottle

    Superior and polished service

    It was delicious and the service distinctly superior and polished, but not excessively formal or rigid

  • Exquisite, World-Class Standard

    If you want to feel special by eating exquisite food in a fabulous setting then go to the Dorchester. Attention to detail is second to none. Dietary needs were catered for with no fuss and no dilution of the quality or standard of food presented. The waiters were a credit to their profession. I would love to go again.

    Simply Delightful

    The dining room is beautifully modern, uncluttered and fresh. We were delighted to be sat at the raised section by the window, and would return to the same table in an instant. We enjoyed being apart from the main 'throng' of the restaurant.

  • Irresistable Dining Experience

    Alain ducasse was excellent from start to finish. So many dishes tempted us from the tasting menu that we couldn't resist. Sea urchin with caviar started the meal and although a little salty it certainly awakened the taste buds. This was followed by an interesting 'salad' of vegetable slivers, an amazing lobster dish in a rich sauce with quenelles, a generous serving of delicious fresh halibut with an assortment of delicate seafood and a tangy sauce and finally an outstanding done to perfection duck rouennaise. The mains were followed by a selection of french cheeses with incredible pairing condiments such as mustard fruit and sweet chutney. The lime souffle with kumquats for dessert was simply sensational.
