The Maze Grill concept now inhabits two more reinvented Ramsay sites across town, but the Mayfair original still competes in a steak-crazy marketplace by refusing to slobber over down 'n' dirty juices. This is meat you eat with a knife and fork, in a room that's a symphony in taupe, on a square that has as much romance as history. With Maze next door, it's no surprise that sushi creeps onto the menu, along with iceberg salads, simple grilled fish and other warm-up acts. The main event is steak from a variety of sources (native British, USDA, Japanese etc), cooked in the charcoal-burning Josper oven and offered with all-American sides including onion rings and mac 'n' cheese. Breakfasts of ricotta hotcakes and eggs Benedict are also worth knowing about. As for the vibe, some detractors brand it more "prissy London chophouse" than NYC.

Maze Grill wins two prizes from me - the most expensive roast dinner I've ever had and also the worst roast dinner I've ever had. It'd be funny if it wasn't so disappointing. I visited with two friends on a Sunday afternoon and the restaurant was dead making the atmosphere about as much fun as a wake. The staff didn't seem to want to be there which given the atmosphere and food, isn't surprising.
I don't even know how you can get a roast dinner so wrong. The meat was medium rare but incredibly dry, like it'd been kept warm under a lamp. The roast potatoes were dry, not crispy or fluffy and lacked any seasoning. The vegetables looked as sad as me when I left. I'm northern, this kind of error with a roast is distressing and offensive to me. To add insult to injury the wine list was extortionately priced.
I tried to cheer myself up with 'chocolate cake' but got a moussey not very chocolatey torte.I definitely won't be back and don't advise you go and waste your money.

What lets this place down is that it aspires to have a NYC vibe but really it's just a prissy London chop house with an inability to take its eye off the bottom line. To be scolded by some shrill, anonymous Front of House twerp because the last member of our party still hadn't arrived 20 minutes after the time for which we had booked our table didn't add to our enjoyment of our cocktails (not particularly competitively mixed, priced or sized). Given it was a mid-week December evening and things were clearly slow, the threat that "we will need the table back at 8:45" was as untrue as it was spiteful. When I pointed out that there was no mention of a time limit when I made the reservation, I was treated to a withering stare and a snarled "It's standard!"
There was nothing wrong with either the food or wine but nothing memorable either. There are plenty of other London restaurants which do this sort of cooking just as well if not better but also manage to make you feel welcome.
Sadly this is the worst restaurant I have been to in London in quite some time. If you can't cook steak, something is very badly wrong. So much fussing around with overly elaborate starters, desserts and even a ludicrous ipad wine list, failed to hide the fact that four out of the eight steaks presented were inedible and had to be returned.
The staff were entirely at sea throughout – 10 plus minutes necessary to catch the waiters eye and then they seemed surprised to be asked for anything. It clearly did not occur to them to top up wine glasses, offer more wine – we gave up waiting for coffee. And all this for £ 165 per head – I hope GR is suitably ashamed of the place, but given how busy it is, I guess not.
