On arrival it was a bit OTT within 5 mins we had as many people welcome us to the restaurant but it calmed down and was fine after that. Starter was lovely and the service was excellent main course was also lovely and service was excellent but then we was left 25 mins with our empty plates in front of us before they was collected. I’d also bought a bottle of wine and the waiter kept topping my glass up until the bottle had obviously ran out and he just took my glass away never mentioned the bottle had gone or even asked if I would like more wine. Eventually desert arrived 35 mins after we had finished our main, and was again fantastic. The next table to us was a table of 6 quite loud and 2 children , not that I’ve a problem with children but a table full of colouring books and crayons at 21:30 when we’re trying to have a nice quiet romantic meal is a bit much specially as the tables are very close together.
Food was excellent, I’m not sure what happened to our service half way though they did apologise but for a 1 off treat it kinda spoiled it. Wouldn’t go again.

I question the standard for two star Michelin restaurants in London after this meal. Our meal lasted over three hours for appetizers, main course and dessert. No tasting menu. The waitstaff gave the appearance that they were blatantly ignoring our table. The food was plated exceptionally but lacked true depth of flavor. The highlight of the night was the Tipsy cake which will be one of my favorite desserts of all time. All in all the meal was average at best with poor service at a restaurant that should be unforgettable.

This is by far the most incredible culinary experience I have ever had. From entering the Mandarin Oriental to leaving the venue, the service, food and ambience was out of this world! Must try the meat fruit and ice cream!

Excellent service, very knowledgeable and engaging team. Dining room leaves you a bit cold unless you have a view into the kitchen. Does not reflect the imaginative nature of the menu. Food all exceptionally good, complex blend of flavours, beautifully executed. Would prefer a more British, inspired decor and environment so that it did not feel as if you were in a posh hotel in a place that could be Dubai or Delhi.

Exquisitely creative and decadent food; the meat fruit and the salmon were sensational along with everything we had. The service was impeccable, could not fault it at all. We had an incredible experience and fantastic evening.

Service was good, food was delivered in timely manner and staff were lovely, but it lacked the WOW factor. Maybe its my high expectations (working in the similar industry).
I have sent a private review and hope it will be taken on board for the future customers.

Wonderful meal - all aspects were what you would expect from a 5* establishment. We liked the open kitchen where you could see the staff. They also took us right up to the pass area after our meal so we could get an even better appreciation of the staff and the teamwork effort.

Our meat was cooked to perfection and delicious as well as all other components of the meal.
Whatever you do you have to have the Nitro ice cream to finish the meal!

All-in-all it was fantastic and a great highlight to our London visit.

I dined at the restaurant on the recommendation of a friend who previously dined there and has lived in London. While I recognize London as a premier city, as a first time visitor I was skeptical of the food. Living in San Francisco and traveling to NYC often my standards have grown fairly high over the years. I have to say the food was delicious and the multiple wait staff who attended to our table were delightful. I would recommend to friends traveling from the states and abroad - especially those looking for world-class flavors and service.

We had a very good lunch. Food is exquisite, wine (by the glass) was paired perfectly. It’s just a very nice change up for all the ‘contemporary British’ in town.

It was a fantastic meal. Best starter I ever had. The only regret would be that what I chose to have was lunch, I will definitely choose this restaurant for a dinner next time so that I can enjoy more delicacies.
By the way, perfect service, perfect environment, perfect everything.

Not bad, but I've had better.

London isn't short of amazing restaurants and while the Meat Fruit is great, it's difficult to find anything that really stands out against the competition.

Superb dining experience. Fabulous setting, outstanding food and impeccable service. Love being able to watch the kitchen at work. If you've forgotten your reading glasses, a box of 'Heston' glasses are produced for you to read the menu, and one sneeze and a box of tissues appears from nowhere. Never had service like that before!

Heston Blumenthal's restaurant Dinner is an exceptional place. I have to say it is in my all-time top ten restaurants in the world. Heston literally has gone through the ages and found British recipes from as far back as the 11th Century and brought them forward with modern ingredients and flair. Truly a unique and memorable dining experience.

Food was equisetly cooked, flavours were fantastic. Sad not too see a huge amount of change in the menu after 4 years. I guess classic ‘wow’ dishes sell. Expensive compare to other Michelin restaurants of its Caliber.
