I went to the Savoy a few weeks ago for my birthday treat. It was just amazing! So much so that my review is in the form of a poem. The Savoy It was about this time last week Where shoes were cleaned and shined The time we booked was half past three Where we’d be wined and dined The setting of this birthday treat Of course was The Savoy The three of us were seated there Two girls and just one boy The ambience an air of grace With beauty all around The splendour of the décor called The opulence abound The staff became our new best friends To meet Omar a treat The tea divine, the food sublime This place just can’t be beat A real joy to visit here This place is just a dream Be sure one day to see this place As smiles will be the theme

I'm not sure this place really needs any backstory/explanation! It's the Savoy - and it lives up to everything you expect - Brilliant service, beautiful rooms and incredibly tasty food. I'm also a big fan of the American Bar: Lovely cocktails, nice atmosphere and a background pianist

Came here for afternoon tea and it was a very lovely experience. The Thames Foyer is a beautiful garden-like setting and the live pianist adds a nice touch to the atmosphere. Very attentive service and the food was very nicely done - amazing presentation and the scone was done particularly perfectly. Do plan ahead as securing a reservation can be a bit of a challenge, even on weekdays.

I attended a business conference in the Savoy's Lancaster Ballroom. The room is very impressive and staff were incredibly helpful in dealing with queries. Catering and facilities were also excellent but I'm not sure whether that was handled by the Savoy or a third-party catering firm. Top notch venue.

Had pre-theatre 3 course meal at the Savoy Grill. Food was excellent, as was the wine. Didn't feel particularly rushed, but we were in and out pretty quickly to get to the theatre after.

I went for my sister birthday in Savoy grill restaurant and we had amazing food. I share a Fillet of beef wellington with my sister and we love it. After we had few cocktails in the bar and the atmosphere was amazing. The piano player was fantastic. Lovely place.

We spent New Years Eve at the Savoy and it was fantastic. The staff were great fun and efficient. The drinks were amazing and the view for the fireworks was pretty good (if a little obscured by trees). Brilliant night had by all.

The American bar is one of the oldest and best cocktail bars in London if not the world. It doesn't disappoint - innovative, interesting cocktails and excellent service - but it may be busy so be prepared to wait but it is worth it. I drank a black eagle which was a boulevardier riffing with a scotch and soda.

Luxury hotel, consistent quality service, attentive staff. Room service breakfast and food quite good. Downside is that hotel guests dont have any priority at the hotel's restaurants and Bars ( all very good), and that there are lots of coming and going and using hotel as a passage way by outside people, not only guests or diners. also I think security needs to be more strong. I have been there this year 3 times and always felt welcome and taken care of.

Attended the Pure Beauty awards. Service and surroundings were great. Food was delicious. Must be fashionable to eat food cooked 'ultra rare' nowadays but not to everyone's tastes on the table. Overall a real sense of occasion.

Excellent service, good drink selection. A few too many gaudy and gregarious clientele though. The pianist was exceptional but he needs to add Benny and The Jets to his repetoire. Also, there should be a limit of 3 performances of that moon river song every night.

Took my best friend here for the infamous afternoon tea for her birthday. The staff and service levels were attentive, there's plenty of food and they made my best friend feel really special. This is a fabulously British afternoon tea and would need to be experience by anyone who is a big fan of afternoon tea!

To have lunch at a hotel where the great and the glorious have dined. The building has a fantastic history. Wonderful atmosphere and the food in the Savoy Grill was sublime.

Very nice setting that's not in doubt. However the food on the night for what it cost was not to the standard I expected. The starter I had was the Lobster Bisque which was not that great. After I had the fillet steak and it was obvious that the steak had not been rested long enough as blood was on my plate. That aside the steak and chips were lovely even though it was 50 odd quid. Then I had the pancakes and while the show of making them by our table was nice they were not fresh and I have had better, much much better for half the price. Considering it was 13 quid that's an expensive pancake where u get the smallest scoop of ice cream ever. I was not overly impressed with the food but it was a nice night out and I cannot flat the service. Hence 3 stars.

Regularly pop into the American bar for a cocktail when we are in the area. Lovely cocktails complimented by great (and plentiful) bar snacks. Cocktails are pricey but totally worth it as it's always a great experience

I went here for an afternoon tea with my partner. The building is nice the toilets are nice, the food is nice, I felt this place was quite pretentious regarding the staffs persona towards some of its customers. This was in a stick up sense. With a beneath me type of attitude. However the building was nice and the food ok. I don't think I would go here again due to the above.

An elegant classic that has maintained standards and innovative twists. The set menus in the Gordon Ramsey grill room offer exceptional value for the highest quality of food. The "taste of" menu has many Savoy classics in generous tasting portions.

High Tea is a wonderful experience and definitely something worthy of your time in London. The Savoy is meant to be the best High Tea in London, or at least comparable to The Ritz. I'd definitely come back. Only thing i'd have changed is an option for more savoury - it was all very sweet!

I was very disappointed we like the Savoy we had eaten in the kaspas and really enjoyed it. we tried Gordon Ramsay's grill at the Savoy the food was diabolical our starters were bland tasteless then my steak come out what resembles an overcooked shoe leather with gristle and no seasoning I ordered rare the chips look like they come out of a school canteen after being sat under heat lamp for the day I watch Gordon Ramsay on TV sorting out restaurants he may want to sort his restaurant out my partner's food was no better we ended up leaving the food and walking out. Just to reiterate we love the Savoy

This hotel is absolutely stunning. Stayed for one night as a celebration with my partner. They go out of their way to feel as special as possible. The room was spectacular and spotless and the evening meal was to die for. Great cocktails too!

A wonderful hotel, in a very convenient location for Waterloo and the surrounding area. The staff were very helpful and considerate. The food was good, especially the little chocolate salted caramel dessert. That was to die for!

Faultless. I often eat and drink in your various bars and restaurants but have never stayed before. I hope it will not be too long before I can repeat the experience. Breakfast was yummy!

A beautiful and stunning location on the Strand. A perfect place to celebrate a special occasion and tick off a bucket list item! Easy to get to, not to far from the tube station at charing cross. Set off the strand with a beautiful interior. Eating out here is definitely a premium experience but worth trying for the experience! Would recommend.

I went to meet a family member there after afternoon tea. It was the first time I had been inside but there was a beautiful reception area with seating and artwork on the wall. It feels like walking into the 1920s. I could hear a piano playing and the food menu looked good! I'll be returning soon for a meal when I have a special occasion!

The old English china-ware provided in the in-room dining was a special touch and very elegant. The food was delicious and healthy. The hotel itself was top-notch. 10 out of 10. I would definitely stay here again.

I visited the Savoy for an evening networking event, and we attended dinner in one of the private rooms. It seemed that night, that each private room, was booked, and the maze of corridors certainly added to the intrigue. As you would expect from a hotel such as the Savoy, the food was great and the service impeccable. I would consider staying here on my next trip to London.

It was very good, but not quite as good as I expected for £1,750 /night. We checked in before our room was ready (which was fine - we didn't expect it to be ready at mid-day) and there was a mix up with someone with the same name. Also everyone seemed to be getting upgrades except us! We came back later to get the key and go to the room, and it took ages for the person to get on to the computer. He took us up to our room and said the butler would be along in a bit, but he wasn't. In general the 'butler service' wasn't quite that; it was a sort of cross between that and room-service. I was surprised to see cigarette burns between the washbasins in our suite. Seen such things before, but at £1,750/night? Also surprised not to have soft-closing toilet seat/lid - you get that almost everywhere now. On the plus side, the view from the suite (614) is stunning, the furnishings are well chosen and elegant, and the butler who served us our dinner was excellent, as was the guy who delivered our breakfast. I first came to the Savoy 50 years ago with my father, and no doubt my wife and I will be back, but maybe not at £1,750/night.

lovely service, great attention to detail. My child was treated like a little prince, with a gift and candy upon his arrival. Loved that we had a certain person to go to for questions, and things we needed - like late check outs or suitcase storage, etc. Concierge terrific. The only service issue we had was during afternoon tea our server disappeared for long periods of time - it ended up being a very long afternoon tea (almost two hours) because we kept having to chase him down. Our 4 year old struggled with that. Loved the pool, the room, and the history.

My first visit to England in several years and it was wonderful to return to The Savoy. Our room was most comfortable and the Thames view did not disappoint. We enjoyed Tea in the Court, discovered the Beaufort Bar where Natalie mixed us amazing cocktails and walked on the Embankment to visit our favorite statue of Arthur Sullivan.

I saw Dream girls at the theater, and the show was absolutely incredible. Amber Riley's voice is out of this world and it is mind-boggling that she is able to do that 10 shows a week. I've never seen a standing ovation at the halfway point but I saw it here!

What an amazing experience staying at the Savoy is. We spent one evening to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were upgraded, I had a private tour of the hotel for my blog. Kaspar's restaurant was amazing as was the American and Beaufort bars. I love the mix between Edwardian and Art Deco and the history behind the hotel. This is my go to London hotel now for sure.

Too pricey for us to stay at the hotel, but we visited for afternoon tea, which was great. The tea room is gorgeous, with very nice live piano. Tea is expensive, but they'll replenish both food and drink indefinitely, so if you go on an empty stomach you can really get a decent value.

I took my wife to the Savoy for a 40th birthday surprise and we both loved the occasion. From the grandiosity of the interior decor to the 5 star service we thoroughly enjoyed it. We had afternoon tea which was, well afternoon tea. I couldn't fault the food but maybe I expected something extra. I've had afternoon tea in many places and this was no different to some of the cheaper hotels. All that said, you pay high prices for the hotel and service.

Stayed overnight in the Savoy, dinner in Kaspars, drinks in the American bar, breakfast, a tour of the iconic suites and the kitchen. Impossible to fault anything. A magical experience made all the better by the fantastic staff who could not have done more for us. Fabulous. Recommend the lobster bisque and the Dover sole (to die for) and whatever Martin the bartender suggests.

Everyone needs to dine here at least once in there lives. I had a beautiful meal with my best friend and we were so pleased with everything after finishing. The food is incredible and the service is so great you might just want to double tip. The setting is fabulous and glamorous and fit for a princess. I highly recommend if you can afford it. Alternatively there's lots of voucher deals online.

Amazing place! Very nice and plush interior as one might expect... My wife and I went there for our wedding anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. Must also say thanks to the staff too for organizing a little surprise anniversary dessert message and giving us one of the best tables in the house!

A landmark place located on the Strand, the Savoy is an iconic restaurant and hotel. You can expect quality silver service here from the friendly wait staff. The decor is quaint with carpeted walls and booths, giant, hanging crystal chandeliers and ornately decorated furniture. The menu is extensive with plenty to choose from with both meat and fish options. The food itself is delicious and the steak comes highly recommended as it is tender and juicy in all the right places.
