The three Michelin-starred restaurant Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester in Mayfair, traditionally the smartest address in town, represents a new approach to fine dining. Professionalism and attention to detail are always paramount, but there is a new aura of whimsy and pleasure as well. The restaurant’s spectacular, elegant interior - by design team Jouin Manku - and breath-taking dining experience has enchanted London’s gourmets and critics. For most mortals, a meal at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester is dining for special celebrations, and the sublime quality of the food and the easy pomp of the service live up to expectations. But an ideal and affordable way to sample the contemporary French cuisine is the set lunch menu, highlighting the very highest quality seasonal ingredients. Favourite dishes include ‘Sauté gourmand’ of LOBSTER, truffled quenelles and homemade pasta or Dry aged BEEF, artichoke and bone marrow.

AD at the Dorchester is still one of my favourite restaurants in London - excellent service, splendid & inventive food, a lovely setting, nice ambience and great staff. My niece & I had a most wonderful dinner recently - opting for the seasonal (and standard) tasting menus. Sublime!

the Service was excellent - but the food was not consistently outstanding nor memorable which is what I expected from a renowned restaurant and the price tag. In fact the hard cheese in the cheese course was dry and rubbery , the clear broth tasteless and the green sauce with the scallops was very strange. I would not go back even if it were cheaper.

The ambient was simpler than expected. The service was reasonable, the food was soulless, surprisingly nothing with superb flavor or distinctly savour. The presentation was ok! The chef was on vacation?

Very good all round, but the service is excellent. This was our second visit. Unfortunately, their prices have gone up incredibly! Love it, but they are pricing out their customers.

Excellent cuisine and wine with very good service. Full marks. We have two criticisms which we assume you would use constructively. 1. we found the decor in the restaurant a bit cold and 2. We recovered out coats just outside the entrance to the restaurant that were just thrown over a chair. We thought that was not very good for a three Michelin star restaurant in the Dorchester.

We came here for our Christmas treat. Restaurant is lovely and staff was welcoming. There was a cracker on each setting which was a nice touch. The staff here was great. Friendly, respectful and attentive without being in your face.
We had the tasting menu. Portions are not big but it is plenty of food and very tasty.
We loved the plate of cheese gougeres. These were very moorish.
The music was nice and not loud. Tables aren't too close together so you can't hear other conversations.
It was a really nice evening. It was a nice touch to be given a bag of mostly home made French sweets at the end of our meal. We were also given a box of 2 pistachio cakes as we left the restaurant. These were really nice!
Loved it. Would come again.

Amazing, food was brilliant had a wonderful time. The only issue was the servers/team there were so many in number there was someone appearing at our table what felt like every few mins, which we found a little intrusive (but they were spectacularly nice and all credit to them). Food was good, although I was a little deflated. Having never eaten in a three-star before (only two stars...first world problems) I was expecting a very big step up in the food from a two to a three, and I don't think it was. But that is possibly me having set myself too high expectations. All round was a brilliant night and we had a great time. Would recommend the tasting menu, but you need to be starving hungry and have 4 hours to enjoy it properly.

Also note to anyone who gets cold easily, take a jumper. My girlfriend was super chilly and ended up with my jacket around her shoulders. It's just a large room with big windows so bound to be a little chilly (I was fine, but had a jumper on!)

This was an excellent fine dining experience, with the staff very well trained in remembering small details, that make a dining experience outstanding from the service point of view. The food was unique, Alain Ducasse has a reputation and his restaurant lived up to it. PS. The Denis Mortet burgundy is unique, and made the experience for us, even more memorable.

Definitely the best Michelin star restaurant I have ever had before---not only the amazing food but also the accommodating staff! It's so sweet for them to make the little chocolate celebration card for me(this is a celebration lunch for my graduation). Recommend to all quality food lovers!

Service and staff were fantastic, excellent wine list and fantastic starters. Main courses were deeply disappointing with one verging on being genuinely bad - turbot suffering death by beetroot which completely overpowered the dish and lacked any other flavour. Lovely experience in terms of it being an event but certainly not worth going for the food.
