Diner Reviews
  • "Meat fruit and the set lunch menu was outstanding. Nitrogen Ice cream was fun to watch, but it was nothing special in taste. Very professional service, nice ambience, great foods. but also very expensive. I had to try this restaurant because it was number 5 in San Pellegrino's 2014 list, but I am not convinced. It is indeed a great restaurant with great food and service with highly talented team and their mission to recreate the historical british foods is really interesting. But, it's def not top 5 in the world and there are many better restaurants in the city and worldwide. I'd still highly recommend this place to try out and see all the hypes are, but I'd not personally go back again. Simply because there are so many restaurants to try."

  • "Having booked based on the Blumenthal reputation this restaurant did not disappoint. Everything was of a very high quality with the interesting and quirky combinations that Heston is known for. The service was attentive but not overbearing and the restaurant itself was very well laid out with a very pleasant ambiance - not at all starchy or pretentious. Naturally the prices are high, how could they be otherwise, but with the level of service and quality of food the prices is justified."

  • "We have been twice before with friends from the New York who love it. This time we went as a family to celebrate our oldest child's 18th birthday on the day. It could not have felt more special - from the original menu and choices, to the excellent service and good atmosphere. It hits the perfect note of feeling very special but not intimidating. We had a wonderful evening. Thank you!"

  • "We had a fantastic lunch here. We had just got married the week before and it was out 1st date as a married couple. I informed them of this and they sat us a fantastic table over looking hyde park and gave us a dessert with congradulations written across the plate. Like touches which made the afternoon really speacial. Additionally the food was brilliant of course and the service was seamless. When we next have a celebration and want a speacial meal this is where we will head!"

  • "Outstanding food and amazing selection of wines. The only downsides were that it felt too busy with too many diners and staff around & the mains are massive size. That's why it made me feel like this was the first Michelin starred restaurant I've been to (and I've been to some!) with food for the masses."

  • "Both our octopus & snail starters were really good. It was fun to have the ice-cream made in front of us. In fact, all dishes we had were interesting and well executed. The services are consistently good too, from bar to restaurant staff."

  • "The service at the dinner was kind and friendly. The manager insisted in showing me the inside of the kitchen when I've shown curiosity. The food was quite new to me and liked it also."

  • "I went for my birthday with my 3 young adult children. The food was incredible but the overall experience was fantastic due to the fabulous friendly staff. Watching them was like performance art. It's clear they are highly trained & highly knowledgeable but it's obvious they are also highly enthusiastic about what they do. The service was excellent but what appealed to us in particular, was that it wasn't pretentious. We weren't rushed & spent just over 3 hours having what we all agreed was the best dining experience we've ever had. We had the set lunch which was good value & they were extremely helpful in accommodating my daughter, a vegetarian & my son who has gluten/dairy/wheat intolerances. Go here, you will not be disappointed!"

  • "Our waitress was very good, explained the meals very well, although our meals were good, I would not pay the price because I was expecting over the top considering the price paid, flavors were just good not great. We were there for our sons graduation. During our dessert presentation the gentleman making ice cream had some fly off his beaters towards me. At the time I thought it only hit my napkin and fell on the floor. No apology was made and numerous waiters and staff walked by looked at the ice cream on the floor and it sat there for at least 1/2 hr. When I got home I noticed I had numerous splatters on my dress pants. An apology at the time would have gone a long way at the time but none was made which prompted me to write this review."

  • "Delicious food - so many flavours lingering in your mouth. Service was outstanding with attentive, warm and personable wait staff."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "Marvellous twists on dishes from the past to chime with modern taste, without being too over the top or experimental as Heston's Fat Duck reputation would indicate. Historic potato chips, every meat and fish dish we have had at Dinner have been perfectly cooked to one's request."

  • "The description on the menu does not do justice to the food that arrives on the plate, every single course that we ordered was effectively laughing food."

  • "Firstly, i am not really stunned by the interior of the reataurant. However the waiters are very friendly & professional. I ordered spiced pigeon and the taste was outstanding. My sisters ordered 2 kind of fishea and they're also tasted great. For the dessert, we had tipsy cake & cheesecake. Honestly that was one of the very the best dessert for me. In addition, the wine is also great."

  • "We had a mid-afternoon seating--the food was well-prepared and interesting but while very good we would not rate it five-star quality. Our disappointment with the restaurant has to do with the service and setting. There were huge delays between courses that took our three course meal over two and a half hours to complete. Further, at the end of the meal, they were clearly behind on service and actually brought a goodbye taste of chocolate to the table while we were still eating our deserts--a real service faux pas. Finally, we were seated at a table for two abutting against the wait station--we should have complained but did not but for a dinner tab of over 250 pounds we should have gotten better service and ambiance."

  • "I had a Monday lunch at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and it was perfect. All dishes were delicious: well cooked and well presented. The staff was very kind, they were able to anticipate our requests and needs. The Meat Fruit was simply unforgettable. At the end, after 3 courses accompanied by wine and champagne for two people, we paid around 140 pounds that was truly reasonable."

  • "Booked a meal as a special treat for our first visit to London. Spent the day sightseeing so were fairly casually dressed (and a bit grimy) but made to feel very welcome and relaxed. Service was very good with meals coming fast and drinks constantly topped up (without us feeling hovered over). Food was so good. Loved being able to watch the kitchen creations whilst we dined. Great evening, great food and great people!"

  • "Dinner was recommended to us by a friend of ours from London. We made the booking last minute and our dinner and experience were really outstanding. All the staff were very nice and professional and the food was out of this world! We had a desert that blew us away! Thank you for a great dinner!"
    dined on 13/07/2014
  • "Everything I was hoping for from Heston! The menu is exciting - we understood most of it but also there were some foreign elements which made it exciting. The good was substantial too which is good. Absolutely delicious."

  • "Came for Sunday lunch to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. Great views into the kitchen, or out into Hyde Park. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere, friendly and knowledgable staff and Devine food! I really liked the heritage behind each dish. I would certainly come back!"
    dined on 13/07/2014
  • "Good food but not 2 Michelin star. Poor ambience. No sense of luxury. Really just a good hotel restaurant. Novel menu with historic connections but the overall experience not worth £175 a head. Wine list very over priced. £125 for a Rioja which I would have expected to pay perhaps £75."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Dining at a Heston restaurant is always going to be amazing, and Dinner does not disappoint. The staff are the best I have ever had the pleasure to be served by - extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the food they are serving and you are eating, and our waiter's extensive knowledge of Hyde Park trivia lent a jolly atmosphere to our experience. This is an experience, not a restaurant. Go, get immersed, learn a bit, enjoy, remember for ever."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Service was discriminated story dependent on supposedly custom.we wealth. Felt judged. Service different to our group. Compared to other.meals well explained. Staff knowledgeable about food and wines. Friendly and courteous. Seen making raised eyebrows, small comments at service station after table service. U informs tattered and limp from over cleaning. For Knightsbridge area improvements t needed in customer care. Have received out standing service at little chef or MacDonald for less financial outlay. An experience but quality poor."

  • "I finally got to the Fat Duck last month, and then to Dinner this week. The food at Dinner was really excellent, not as mind-blowing as the Fat Duck, but everything was excellently prepared."

    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "The best meal I have ever had. Service and ambiance second to none. It is expensive but you get what you pay for so well worth the money. Wine list a bit expensive but the wine we chose was excellent."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "Exceptional food, and despite having only 2 hours allocated for £200+ meal for 2, the service was not rushed. Only down side was that we were given a dessert that was incorrect, and we ate our desserts separately as my dinner guest has to wait for their dessert, which was a dissapointing end to the meal."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "Quite Simply, THE most outstanding food I have ever tasted in my life. If you only ever go to one Restaurant in your life....."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "We arrived to attentative staff and were directed to a window table overlooking Hyde Park. There was plenty of space between tables so we could talk in private. We selected the fixed 3 course lunch (£38 each) offering wo choices for each course and the suggested wines to acompany them. (£22 each). The staff were very knowledgeable in wines and ingredients, attentative but not overbearing. The food was exceptional and was well matched with the wine. As an indulgence I added a selection of English cheese and a glass of vintage port to finish although the made at the table, nitro ice cream would have added a little theatre, I didnt think it would have worked. As a foodie experience I would thoroughly recommend."
