A very enjoyable eating experience, beautifully quiet in wonderful surroundings. Very attentive service and an excellent food selection from which to chose from. Food reasonably priced but beware wine by the glass is pretty steep.

In a magnificent converted railway building, The Brasserie at The Grosvenor Hotel offers elegant European cuisine. Alongside a comprehensive selection from the glossy 1940's-style bar, a dainty afternoon tea selection is served.

Drawing influence from across the continent, The Brasserie menu offers casual sharing platters and simple classics, as well as refined main course flavours. Favourites include squash and goats cheese ravioli, whilst succulent steaks are sourced from Casterbridge’s finest grain-fed cattle. For dessert, a delectable selection includes Amalfi lemon tart with mascarpone, or rich pot au chocolat.

Offering a more laidback selection, The Grosvenor Brasserie serves a lunch menu of hearty signature sandwiches, burgers and colourful salads, as well as hand-crafted treats for afternoon tea. The international wine list offers some superb complementing bottles.

In the dining room at The Brasserie London, muted colours are offset by a dotting of bright canvases. Victoria Rail Station is just 2 minutes’ walk away.

    I had been to The Grosvenor for tea previously and had a wonderful experience so decided to book for myself and 3 girlfriends for a mini school reunion. On arrival I made my way to the lounge and spoke to the gentleman at the entrance who seemed bemused at my presence, after a few moments he asked my name and checked the list, once he found me he took a few more moments before asking how many the booking was for then pointed to a table and said "you can go there". He then asked what tea we would like without presenting anyone a menu and so I asked to see one and were given 2 to share. We chose the champagne afternoon tea to which we were asked by the same gentlemen if we had any discount vouchers, we didn't, he started walking away and then said "hang on, let me just....."and we never saw him again. One of my party mused if he even worked at the hotel!

    The champagne and tea plates arrived very quickly but 10 minutes after being presented our food our tea order still had not been taken. I had to wave to get some attention to order tea, which then arrived very quickly. The quality of the food was acceptable but no better than that and inferiour to what I had been served at The Grosvenor the previous December. The sandwiches were fine, although some bits of crust were left on. The scones were hard and tasteless and had seemed mass produced as opposed to baked fresh and the cakes were the same, solid, tasteless and mass produced, particularly the chocolate cupcake and the Victoria sponge. In my experience that cakes that top and afternoon tea should be decadent and beautiful, these felt more like a small child's birthday buffet.

    Finally we asked for the bill, for which we waited a very long time, the waiter was very sweet and apologetic. The waiter took my card out of sight for a minute or so then handed me my card with no reciept or explanation. I called over and asked for one he said he didn't know how to take partial payment and someone else would come.

    Celebrating a birthday with family and primarily booked here because the tube strike was due to start and The Brasserie is easily accessed from Victoria Station.
    We met up in The Reunion Bar and as usual had beautiful cocktails served by attentive staff. Due to various members of our party arriving from different destinations we were not all ready for our booked table at 8pm but that posed no problem with the staff at The Brasserie so we did not feel at all rushed.
    We had a lovely long table in one of the dining rooms but was fairly quiet although this wasn't a problem for us as we were a party of 10. The waiting staff took our orders and checked them with us to ensure everything was correct. There was a reasonable selection of food certainly enough to cover the various tastes of those present. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. As we were celebrating we had brought a small cake for the birthday girl and the waiting staff brought this to the table and sang Happy Birthday before serving the cake to those who wanted some.
    All in all a successful evening despite the transport issues going on - would certainly eat here again and The Reunion Bar has become a family meeting place whenever we go into Town.

    I met a friend for lunch but we had a coffee first. Our table was booked in the Brasserie for 1pm but we were talking so much we didn't go in until 1.40pm! Lovely meal from the set menu and good value. The only thing was that my friend's main almost got forgotten even though they had given me mine! However, it was a very nice unhurried lunch and I would certainly go back.

    we dined in the evening 5pm... meal was nicely decorated and well presented, probably you can add a bit more snacks with the set menu.

    The Grosvenor on the outside is a very 'well-to-do' hotel, giving off an air of quality. However the Grosvenor Brasseire is one of the worst restaurants I've ever been to, both for quality of food and value for money. We started off trying to order a Malibu and Cranberry juice, but the waitress did not understand what 'Malibu' or 'Cranberry' were. We ended up confusing the poor lady with this simple request and ended up having to order two glasses of tap-water to end her embarrassment. We started off with the vegetarian platter, which included hummus, toasted flatbread, vegetable sticks, grilled halloumi and olives. The hummus didn't have any hand-made qualities, it was most probably from a mass produced factory pot of hummus. The grilled halloumi and toasted flatbread were both cold and presumably had been sitting in the kitchen for a good while. This dish was about[$].The Lamb Shoulder was most definitely NOT lamb shoulder. It was actually some sort of pink-slime style meat, heavily salted to mask the smell of old/poor quality meat. The dish was titled 'Lamb Shoulder' however there were actually pieces of bacon in the dish, not as described. I guess the purpose of the bacon was the same as the salt: to mask the cr ap (excuse my language, there isn't a more eloquent way to put it) quality of the 'meat'. Serving what is basically pink slime (and not actual lamb shoulder) is unforgivable for a restaurant of this 'calibre' and price. This meat had obviously been heated more than once as it was burnt on the outside but cold yet overdone on the inside.The Lamb Shoulder dish cost [$]. It was promptly returned it to the waiter after a few bites, explaining how salty and inedible the dish was. He offered dessert instead... The restaurant actually had the nerve to charge us for this dish even though we returned it and subsequently received the chef's apologies.My boyfriend had the Mushroom Risotto. It was bland, watery and flavourless. The sauce tasted like it was lacking in any fresh cream, which is essential for this s

    Early evening dinner at 7.00pm Food was very pleasant but overall rather expensive for what it was. Ambience somewhat stark and too much light.

    Ate on a Sunday night so restaurant was very quiet and peaceful but still a nice environment to be in. Meal was delicious and the menu we booked through Book a Table was great value. Even the wine that was included was good, especially for a house wine. Was brought the wrong pudding but they changed it straight away. Only complaints were that the waiter didn't seem to know what was in the salad on the menu when we asked, nor what he was doing with the card machine when we asked to split the bill so it got a bit complicated. Overall it was fairly good. I would recommend it but probably wouldn't go back as we live about an hour away and like to try new places when we go to London.
