Fodor's Review

You can feel the history in the room at this glamorous 1889 art deco hotel-dining powerhouse, which has hosted everyone from Oscar Wilde and Frank Sinatra to Liz Taylor and Marilyn Monroe. Nowadays—buffed up with Swarovski chandeliers, velvet coverings, gold leaf–backed tortoiseshell walls, and vintage mirror and black-and-white pics—it caters to bulky business barons, top-end tourists, and nostalgia freaks who come for the Grill's famed table-side trolley, which might trundle up laden with hulking great roasts like beef Wellington, rack of pork, or saddle of lamb. Savoy legends like omelet Arnold Bennett (with smoked haddock, Parmesan, and cream) or baked egg cocotte with smoked bacon, wild mushrooms, and red wine sauce are to the fore, plus there's timeless standbys like T-bone and Chateaubriand steaks, alongside Carlingford oysters and lobster thermidor. For dessert, you can't top the Baked Alaska.
