Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nice relaxed atmosphere serving a selection of American style cuisine. Friendly service and it is worthwhile to arrive a little early for cocktails in the Magritte Bar. Food is tasty although not very original.

This swank intimate restaurant captures the glamour of 1930's New York in the middle of Mayfair. While it has a distinctive American menu, there is a British sophistication to the experience. The Caesar Salad-- a rare find in London, was excellent and the Monkfish Wellington...was a superb main course. Service is excellent -- warm and engaging and the ambiance of the room is spectacular--both comfortable and luxurious.More

This is an expensive restaurant, but it sets a high standard for both service and food quality. We were greeted at the door by the Maitre’d, who took our jackets and seated us at a nice table. For starters I had the New York shrimp...cocktail, which was probably the best one that I’ve ever had. We also shared a Chateaubriand, which was cooked medium rare to perfection. We didn’t have room for dessert. The Maitre’d even took the time to farewell us when we left. This is a great place. We’ll be back.More

It had been a while since we frequented this restaurant and time hadn’t diminished our appreciation of the food and service. It is very much a high-end grill without the ‘stuffyness ’. The staff were excellent- attentive and efficient, certainly not sycophantic, as can often...be the case. A significant level of praise should be given to the Sommelier, Ariana, who was very helpful and knowledgeable. Most importantly, she was passionate about her love of wine. A real boon to the restaurant. Overall I would highly recommend the Colony Grill. We will be returning sooner rather than later.More

We've been eating Christmas dinner in London for years. We've tried many of the top places. The meal we enjoyed this Christmas at the Colony Grill was the best we've ever had. Each course was superb. They were slammed, yet the service was impeccable. We...argued over which course was best. The ballotine of foie gras! No! The lobster and tarragon dumplings! No! The scrumptious turkey: flavourful and moist. The pigs in the blanket were the best any of us had ever eaten. We were about to cry because we just couldn't finish the delectable Christmas pudding. The mince pies are not to be missed (we took them home). The room is one of the prettiest and most comfortable in London. Many thanks to Lionel, Robert, and the whole staff for another memorable meal. Do nip into the excellent Magritte Bar for a degistiv. Another lovely room, wonderful jazz, and a superb staff.More
