When it comes to London dining, there are a few restaurants that spring to mind immediately, and The Grill at The Dorchester is one of those restaurants. There’s a particular feeling associated with visiting this restaurant that evokes a sense of grandeur. Perhaps it’s the décor, with the chandeliers and the elegant interior design, or perhaps it is the staff, who immediately make you feel at home in the most effortless of ways. Whatever it is, that feeling and the faultless cuisine makes us want to return time and time again, and we were most excited as we stepped into the restaurant on this occasion.

As expected, the scene that greeted us was of timeless beauty; tables and chairs in perfect formation full of guests enjoying their dining experience, with an abundance of smiles and laughter. We were greeted as if royalty and shown to our table, where we indulged in two glasses of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée as an aperitif.

To start, I chose the duck foie gras terrine served with quince and apple chutney, my partner chose the shrimp, avocado and mango cocktail complete with baby gem lettuce. The terrine was incredibly rich, with the richness being cut through and perfectly accompanied by the quince and apple chutney. It was everything I had hoped for in this dish. The shrimp dish was also a delight, with the sweetness of the fresh shrimp being enhanced perfectly by the ripe avocado and mango flavours. These dishes provided the perfect start to our evening.

“It's The Dorchester’s effortless delivery of a five star experience that always keeps us coming back for more.”

For our main courses, I chose the Welsh rack of lamb served with seasonal vegetables and coriander pesto. The lamb was, of course, wonderfully cooked; pink to perfection and melt-in-the-mouth. My partner chose the Black Angus beef fillet served with potatoes and onion, with the meat again being an absolute triumph, we also added sides of sautéed baby spinach and mashed potatoes.

To accompany our meal, we chose a bottle of the 2012, Valpolicella Classico Superiore, T. Bussola, Veneto, Italy. This wine was an excellent pairing choice, with complex aromas of red and sticky dried fruits. This wine was silky and fresh, yet extremely rich and perfectly balanced.

For our desserts, I chose the contemporary lemon tart and my partner chose the sorbet selection of vanilla, salted caramel and lemon. Light, refreshing and wonderfully indulgent, these desserts certainly hit the spot. We also chose to complete our meal with two glasses of Disaronno, which went down wonderfully.

Our meal at The Grill at The Dorchester was, once again, absolutely flawless, from the flavours and the presentation of each and every dish, to the atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant. It's The Dorchester’s effortless delivery of a five star experience that always keeps us coming back for more.
