Savoy Grill at The Savoy 22

Squaremeal Review of Savoy Grill at The Savoy ?

The legendary Savoy Grill has hosted a long list of famous diners since it opened in 1889, including Oscar Wilde, Charlie Chaplin and Frank Sinatra. You'll feel like an A-lister too, seated in the plush dining room beneath glittering chandeliers: "I love the experience whenever I go here," declares one devotee. Now a Gordon Ramsay restaurant, the menu pays its dues to the Savoy's culinary heritage, featuring omelette Arnold Bennett and peach Melba (both created here), as well as French staples that would be familiar to the hotel's first chef, Escoffier. But the main event is the "wonderful meat": generous grills and chops, with classic sauces such as marrowbone and shallot, feature alongside braises, roasts and pies, plus daily treats from the trolley – Wednesday is our favourite day for lunch, when beef Wellington is the star of the show. A traditional wine list lends support, while polished staff include "a helpful and knowledgeable sommelier". In short, the Savoy Grill delivers.

For a taste of a London icon read Nuzy Sayani’s review of Savoy Grill

by   bronze reviewer (7)

Jun 2015

Editor's pick The Savoy has special significance for me as my now husband and I had our first date at the American Bar almost two decades ago. Romance flourished over martinis and the rest as they say is history. When we were looking for somewhere special to take my mother in law for her birthday, we decided to book the Savoy Grill for Sunday lunch. London has so many luxury hotels but I have always loved the glamour and character of The Savoy. The extensive restoration freshened up the grande dame whilst...

A very Happy Birthday Girl!!

by   (1)

Nov 2014

My husband and I and our friends went for lunch on my 60th birthday to The Savoy Grill. I can honestly say that it made my birthday complete! We were treated with the utmost respect and our waiters LUKASZ and LUCA were most courteous, polite and attentive. We received the most professional service indeed! Our wine glasses were never left empty, the food, which was to die for, was served graciously and we were made to feel as if nothing was to much trouble. The waiters asked if we were celebrating...

Strong service. Subpar food.

Oct 2013

I looked forward to having dinner at the Savoy (booked in July for an October trip to London), only to find it severely disappointing. The only part of the experience that was satisfactory was the service. Top notch service. However, that is exactly where the excellence began and ended. My dinner date is a vegetarian and had the endive salad, followed by the polenta and basil ravioli with beurre noisette, lemon and capers. When she reviewed the online menu in July and the day of our dinner, she has...

Sunday Lunch in Style

by   (1)

Oct 2013

We booked for Sunday lunch for my girlfriends birthday. Attentive service, lovely food, very nice wine by the glass and a really buzzing atmosphere. Only downside was I didn't think it was the best value. I thought a cover charge AND 12.5% service in particular was a bit much. Perhaps targeting the tourists… Overall very happy with the experience but not sure I would make it a regular dining event.

There was no grill

Sep 2013

I visited the Savoy in London many years ago and since then at destinations globally. My fiancé and I made a reservation at the Savoy Grill in London for 9.00pm on the 1st of September, under her name. My future parents-in-law flew over from Rome for their first trip to London and this was to be their first meal dining out since landing in the UK. As you can appreciate, meeting my fiancés parents for the first time is an exceptionally important event. Hence why I trusted the Savoy to deliver an excellent...

Disappointing food

by   silver reviewer (15)

May 2013

We are huge fans of the Savoy and we took our elderly aunts there for the pre-theatre menu (they like to eat early). The Pre-theatre menu was three courses for £26, which is obviously very good value compared to the à la carte that we normally have, but I am afraid to say that it was disappointing. There was a choice of three starters (soup, terrine or a salad), three main courses (veggie pasta, Pithivier – steak pie, mussels), three desserts (eton mess, fruit salad or crème brulee). The starters...

Signature recipe: Peach Melba

Serves: 2

Ingredients
2 fresh peaches, sliced with skin on
20 raspberries
200ml double cream
100g icing sugar
20g caster sugar
50ml water
1 vanilla pod (whole, seeded)
50g almond flakes
 
Method
1. Melt a little sugar in the same amount of water in a saucepan to create a syrup. Add the sliced peaches to the pan with the scraped vanilla pod and simmer for five minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool.
2. Next prepare a raspberry coulis: put 10 of the raspberries into a saucepan with the sugar and water and bring to the boil. When the raspberries have broken down, strain the mixture through a sieve and set aside to cool.
3. To make the Chantilly cream, whisk the double cream, icing sugar and the seeds of the vanilla pod together until it thickens.
4. Toast the almonds in the oven at 180°C for eight minutes until golden brown.
5. Layer the peaches and the Chantilly cream in cocktail glasses. Finish with the toasted almonds, raspberry coulis and remaining fresh raspberries.
