The Colony Grill Room Review
5 Star Rating
5 January 2016The Colony Grill RoomTags: London, UK, Casual reviewsThe Bill:

The Colony Grill Room is tucked away inside The Beaumont Hotel in Mayfair. The décor is a take on the traditional grill rooms found in New York back in the 1920’s, much thought has gone into the design concept. We had the pleasure of a nice spacious leather booth, and although the restaurant is windowless it’s nicely lit. I can see the windows being missed at lunch time, but it’s part of the experience. The service was attentive, and the food certainly didn’t disappoint.

We started the evening with two glasses of Pommery Brut Royal NV, a lively champagne which prepared us for the evening ahead. After browsing the menu we ordered a New York Shrimp Cocktail, which was seven King Prawns served over ice with a Rich Tomato Salsa. This is a starter I would happily order again. My partner ordered the Oak-Smoked Salmon served with fresh Lemon and Capers. The Salmon was perfectly prepared, and the fresh Lemon worked a treat.

“The entire experience was a joy.”

For our main course we ordered Grilled Dover Sole, served with a Béarnaise sauce. Dover sole can vary in taste depending on how it’s prepared and cooked, I’m happy to say that this dish was packed with flavour and i enjoyed every mouthful. My partner ordered a 7oz Fillet Steak with Pepper Sauce and French Fries. An excellent example of a classic American dish, done very well. We added sides of Creamed Sweet Corn and Whipped Potatoes, every dish was faultless and the Creamed Sweet Corn is simply a must, although a simple dish its highly rewarding.

We finished the evening by sharing a Crème Brulee. This was a lovely example of a Crème Brulee, perfectly sized to complete our evening. We polished off a bottle of 2012, Château Montlau, Bordeaux Supérieur, France, throughout the evening. A dense, rich wine, very enjoyable and we were disappointed to see the bottom of the bottle. The entire experience was a joy, and one we would happily repeat.
