what the critics say

Sunday, April 17, 2011 - The long menu reads well, better than almost any other Ramsay menu in years. It is classy comfort food, a list of old fashioned things which you just know that, like the room, have only been given a lick of modern polish...A 'Dingly Dell' pork chop, cut thick, grilled expertly, is a truly wonderful thing. My companion cuts off the ribbon of fat. I steal it. A Cornish fish stew is far less so. The main ingredients - clams, mussels, a bit of mullet and so on - are of good quality and cooked well. The sauce is a thick, creamy affair and just completely wrong. It needs bite and kick, a rough edge or two. Instead, it is trying to be on best behaviour.

Tuesday, January 25, 2011 - It's a menu that's nostalgic but not whimsical; hearty but not earthy; sophisticated but not intimidating. It may not shout innovation, but imagination, deftness and integrity are all worthier qualities. My melting chunk of sweet, wine-braised beef shoulder nestled beside a couple of oval tranches of brilliant-red fillet, a rich dollop of creamed wild mushrooms sitting atop it like deep snow on a ski chalet...While the atmosphere may be intended to hark back to the place's inter-war heyday, the irony is that the Savoy Grill's heyday may, in fact, be now.

very disappointing - we have been to the savoy grill several times before the renovation. no resemblance to the past experiences; unfortunately

now it's very noisy like in train station waiting hall and overcrowded - staff varies from friendly to extremely rude and unpleasant - we were asked to leave by one of managers as we were not ordering the dessert fast enough; he started to lean over to touch my husbands shoulder... - unacceptable!

food is average; my husband had snails - dry and burnt; the roast garlic purée and parsley butter completely overpowered the snails.
