Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
Great service and good food...
Exceptional dining experience, with outstanding food and excellent service.
You have to have the Tipsy Cake for dessert. True this is an expensive joint to eat so if you're counting pennies, or calories come to that, then maybe pick somewhere else. if you want great food, impeccable service and you're prepared for then hit to your wallet then its unmatched imo. I'm coming back every birthday till they put me in a box.
Fantastic food and excellent service
We had a fabulous evening and had the tasting menu!! Really great food!!!
Very good service, good environment. Food is under the expectation. Meat fruit is good, cod was a bit over cooked.
Restaurant as exquisite as this should not allow flash photography from guests, very disruptive and disrespectful. Caused us to see spots for most of the evening due to a table’s endless
Documentation of their meal.
Food and service were excellent.
This was my fourth visit to Dinner, and I am sure that I will be back again. The food was, as usual, exquisite and very interesting in terms of innovation and flavour combinations. I have given a slightly lower rating than my usual five stars this time, partly because the windows are frosted over due to construction works at the moment and some very loud drilling noises, so there are no views over the park, but also because we found that the service was not as friendly and warm as usual, despite the restaurant being (rarely) half empty - I'm assuming also due to the hotel renovations. The service and ambiance at Dinner has always been part of what makes it so special alongside some really stunning food with real WOW factor, so I am sure, and I hope that this was a one off.
Very ordinary food with a big price tag.
Massive let down.
Superb but expensive. Service was second to none, food exquisite and the decor & ambience perfect. I ran out of superlatives!!
Amazing food and service!
Everything was perfect as one would expect from Heston
From start to finish, this was just ace. Staff were excellent, and the food was exceptional. Highly recommend
Very good but not 2 stars
I was expecting the meal to be memorable on all levels, but frankly was left a bit underwhelmed.
Ambience was non existent - big anonymous room, and for some reason we were seated far from the open plan kitchen it may have helped add some atmosphere of we’d been able to see what was happening there.
A lot of families with young(ish) children , not a problem but didn’t help it feel special in any way. Service was good but not impeccable.
Food was excellent in many respects, though seriously over priced. Reasonable sized portions except for the fish which was stingy.
The menu was also a little restricted. Not much choice and 3 different steaks (admittedly the rib for 2 was amazing) not exactly what one would expect. Also fell into my pet hate of serving pigeon as one of the mains which I find boring and uninspired. Why do most fancy restaurants insist on serving that??
Another aspect which was missing and I enjoy about that level of dining is all the little added extras - no amuse bouche offered and only one little chocolate and yoghurt tart after desert.
Wine lost was extensive, with a good choice of less than £50 a bottle available.
Not likely to return and wouldn’t recommend, predominantly because it lacked the wow factor I was expecting with the name and price.
A really lovely meal. The staff were helpful and attentive, explaining everything and making us feel welcome. The food was tasty and wonderfully cooked, although perhaps a little less ‘wow’ than I had expected. We had the three course set lunch menu, which might have slightly less memorable dishes on it than the tasting or a la carte options. The mushroom broth starter was a highlight-deep, and savoury and yummy. I probably wouldn’t rave about our experience, but I would also probably go back.
The service is excellent and so is the food.
This is a fabulous restaurant!
Every single dish is thought through and prepared with finess.
Dinner by Heston was absolutely lovely. Couldn’t fault the food . However, when the bill can we had been overcharged by almost £200 and I would have paid it as my Mother’s Day treat if I did not check it correctly. Was very disappointed in this inaccuracy. However, on demand they did remove this charge and also removed two gin and tonics. Another fault I picked up on was the standard of dress from other guests. This is a Michelin star restaurant and we were seated next to a young scruffy couple in tracksuit which I thought reflected badly on the restaurant. Perhaps a dress code would be appropriate for this establishment.
Impeccable service. I’m gluten free and they catered for it so effortlessly. The service and attitude of staff is the best I’ve seen.
Fantastic as usual
Food is so nice!!!!
Amazing food, awesome service. Simply great experience. Very enjoyable
Food and wine were awesome. Staff really pleasant and knowledgable about the food and wine. Lovely evening.
Super, attention to detail and friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere.
Food is exceptional, but the venue is both soulless and stilted and the ultimate let's down for the prices being charged
Absolutely perfect dining experience. Fantastic food and outstanding service. Faultless!
This will definitely be our restaurant of choice for special occasions. Can't wait for our next visit.
5 star service, lovely food will definitely will be back.
To start, the place is beautiful! ( which requires an elegant dress code). Dishes were amazing, it is a modern translation to British old cuisine. Pretty fascinating.
On one of the dishes that was not matching our taste they switched it and compensated us.
The most amazing experience for us.
Very nice meal! Our 6th time there and they never disappoint!
Incredible evening, food was incredible and service was fantastic
We have been there for lunch. Fantastic experience, everything on exceptionel high level... food, service, ambience. The meat fruit was outstanding! Highly recommended!
Again, excellent experience. I don't know what else to say that I haven't said before. The pigeon is phenomenal and the rib steak for 2 , that my husband always orders, was fantastic as usual. My only regret is that I wish I had ordered a tipsy cake before flying home. It's a stellar dessert that I will recommend time and time again.
Great dishes, not so good location, to0 crowdy and loudy. Too high mark-ups for wine list.
Amazing food, amazing service. Truly incredible and can’t recommend it enough
We went for the food and were delighted by it. There were trompe l'oeils to enjoy in the guise of meat fruit and a delightful speckled egg desert. The standard was unsurprisingly high but there were surprises in store. We hadn't expected the open view of the kitchen and it was such a treat to watch the chefs in action (very calm, no swearing!). We also really enjoyed the alchemy of after desert ice creams made at the table.
Our second visit. We bought friends along and are pleased to say it was every bit as amazing as our first visit, a good 3 years ago. Our friends were very impressed. Food amazing and staff friendly and more then happy to help. We look forward to coming again, as we have become big fans of the tipsy cake!!!!
Truly amazing experience... The food was cooked to perfection and great service. Highly recommended the Meat fruit and steak. We will be back soon.
We have been here a few times already and again, we are very impressed with the consistency. The duck is delicious as always and the bone in ribeye was well prepared, simple and wonderful. I always do have to have the tipsy cake for dessert and again, it did not fail to impress. Very much as we remembered.
