Okei food, but very disappointing service. The foredrink served after the starter, and little attention from staff.

My first visit to the island Grill and I was not disappointed. The food was amazing as was the service. The restaurant appeared to be full but there was a really lovely calm atmosphere. We will certainly be going back. Thank you to all the staff for making my birthday treat extra special.

We enjoyed a marvelous dinner on our first night in London. We selected the Island Grill because of it's TripAdvisor rating, location and Gluten Free offerings and we were not disappointed. Our waiter, Francisco, suggested the lamb shank and it was wonderful. We may return tomorrow.

Visited the Island Grill for an anniversary dinner and I was so pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. Both my husband and I absolutely loved the food! My scallops were perfectly cooked as was the fillet steak. The garlic mash was so perfectly smooth and I devoured the chocolate trio dessert (ice cream, fondant and coffee foam). What made it...

The atmosphere isn't cosy. The lighting is great and it's modern but a little too modern for my liking. The service was polite but not very attentive. She appeared and was helpful but would then disappear and we'd have to wait in patches for wine with our dinner etc. I think she was covering too many tables. The food was... More

The service, food and atmosphere was brilliant. We had two evening meals at this restaurant, both were truly fantastic. The attention given to the quality of the ingredients, how it was cooked and presented on the plate then delivered by attentive staff was first class.

Description
In a delightful location overlooking Hyde Park, Island Grill is a stylish split-level restaurant and bar within the Lancaster London Hotel. Understated contemporary decor doesn't compete with the outstanding views of the Italian Gardens, while the all-day menu offers a cosmopolitan take on British classics. A relaxed buzz completes the atmosphere of friendly sophistication.
