SquareMeal Review of Savoy Grill by Gordon Ramsay

Gold Award

As soon as you approach The Savoy you know it’s going to be a special evening, with the grandeur of the hotel entrance where doormen wait to greet you in three piece suits, and luxury cars drop guests off for the night.

Inside the Savoy Grill, Swarovski chandeliers hang from the ceiling, white table cloths drape over each table with a dim lamp for added ambience, and jazz music plays softly in the background. Chuck in some indoor smoking and Winston Churchill, and you’d be forgiven for thinking we’d stepped back into the 1950s.

The menu here continues the theme of classic with a luxurious flare, and we opt for the tasting menu to sample it all. Our meal starts with a couple of small bites, with a creamy Gougère, and a ‘bloody mary oyster’ topped with celery, tomato and vodka. These are followed by an Arnold Bennett souffle (which may well be the only thing richer than the upholstery) which is packed with smoked haddock and Montgomery cheddar sauce - it’s not a dish for the faint hearted, but for those who come ready to indulge, it’s a beautiful thing. Naturally, the main course is a beef wellington - infamous at the Savoy Grill - which arrives as a perfectly pink fillet, sitting alongside a piped pomme puree that would put all others to shame.

We round off with The Savoy Eclair, giving flavours of raspberry, vanilla and lime, which while perfectly good, is surpassed by the raspberry sorbet which packs a punch whilst still remaining refreshing. Each dish is paired with wine, and expertly chosen by the head sommelier who takes his time to talk us through every flavour profile.

It’s all in the details here, from pulling out your chair, to the Maitre d' who keeps the show ticking over whilst telling stories of customers past - be it of anniversaries or post war celebrations. It gives character to the restaurant, and makes us want to have all of our special moments here, so we too can be part of the Savoy Grill’s history.

About

On the beautiful banks of the River Thames in London, the world famous Savoy Hotel has been home to one of London’s most iconic restaurants since 1889, the Savoy Grill, and over the years has been visited by names such as James Dean, Winston Churchill and Marilyn Monroe. Inside the iconic building, enjoy the grandeur of the Savoy Grill, which is one of the world's most iconic dining destinations.

Following a monumental refurbishment in spring 2023, this historic restaurant on The Strand has undergone a breathtaking transformation. Enjoy the elegant new look that graces the dining room, featuring mirrored walls, plush velvets, and an iconic feather tile feature, paying homage to the glamorous golden age. Open seven days a week, the Savoy Grill by Gordon Ramsay invites guests to dine amidst Hollywood and history, with a chic chef’s table space overlooking the kitchen and a sublime wine experience room like no other. Enjoy the fruits of wood fired charcoal grills, offering delicious options like the hearty 300g rib eye steak or the indulgent côte de boeuf, which is perfect for sharing.

Seafood lovers will enjoy a showcase of British produce, including oysters, lobster thermidor, or dover sole. Begin your meal with the exquisite Arnold Bennett soufflé made with smoked haddock and Montgomery cheddar sauce, or enjoy the opulence of oscietra caviar with brown butter waffle and smoked sturgeon rillette. If you love a classic, be sure to order the steak tartare with a confit St Ewes egg yolk and black truffle crisps, or enjoy the freshness of kingfish crudo with pickled green apple, radish, and ponzu. The iconic beef Wellington, accompanied by pomme purée, tenderstem broccoli, and red wine jus is delicious, and don’t forget to end on a sweet note with the irresistible Savoy Grill éclair filled with raspberry, vanilla, and lime.

Visited for a birthday treat, the welcome was warm and professional. Service was on point, very relaxing and we were not rushed. 

Food was excellent especially the beef wellington.

It had all the little extra pieces of attention to detail to make it a memorable experience.
