We were left waiting on multiple occasions when we needed service and served by too many different people.

Poor value for money. Food took a while and food didn’t match the price or hype.

It was outstanding. One of the best dinner experiences I've ever had. Food was fantastic, the wine too, Service was excellent and I couldn't be more satisfied with our evening.

Disappointing, overly seasoned and some things strange tasting. The cauliflower is a very poor dish, the cauliflower tasted burnt more than grilled. Side dish of pasta with the cauliflower not up to scratch, too salty and yet again strange flavours, pasta was al dente but its accompaniments were bizarre and not enjoyable. Savoury porridge had an overpowering taste of vinegar. Meat fruit was good but everything else forgettable and not enjoyable. Overall, pretentious food and some pretentious staff, the experience as a whole could be described as just satisfactory.

Wonderful food and service. Dinner for two...three courses ....a bottle of English sparkling wine and coffee will set you back just over £410.00 but was worth every penny. We were fortunate to be sitting right in front of the kitchen and got a fantastic view.

Amazing as always! My husband and I love going to Dinner by Heston - the food is gorgeous and the staff are friendly and always happy to give recommendations. I thought it was a lovely gesture to offer me a cushion for comfort when they found out I was pregnant. 10 out of 10 every time.

We had the 5 course set menu for lunch in February 2019. The food was the best fine dining we have ever come across with taste combinations that are in a word amazing. The service was exceptional as well with every detail take care of. The servers were very polite, helpful, and thoughtful and it was clear they take pride in their work. The price is high but worth it in our opinion since the experience is on a different level.

Very courteous, professional service by all staff. Food was delicious and nicely presented. The Tipsy Cake for dessert is wonderful! Impressive wine list and great sommelier. I did expect an amuse bouche to be served, but this wasn't the case. Overall definitely worth a visit when in London. I will be back.

Food not as ‘fresh’ as normal.
Meat Fruit was lovely but appeared slightly wilted almost like it’d been sitting for a few hours before serving.
Rare fillet was very tender, perhaps a tad over cooked.
Tipsy cake was exceptional, as always!

Heston’s signature style is to create a sense of theatre to the dining experience. The presentation, service and ability to watch the chef team work were all incredible touches. I’m pleased to say this was not to the detriment of the quality of the food. I felt spoilt for choice with the menu, and each course was served with the perfect wine pairing, as recommended by the sommelier. The menu also listed the provenance of each meal, showing the time it was from and citing the original authors. For a two-Michelin star restaurant, my friend and I both felt the value for money was superb. Anyone wanting to try a Michelin star place- look no further!

For 3 years we had our special Chinese New Year lunch at Dinner. The food was very well prepared. I enjoyed the chicken oyster and the Cod. Service was impeccable as usual. Definitely a repeatable visit.

After dining in several Michelin starred restaurants, we felt very disappointed after our evening at the “Dinner”.
No tasting menu was available so we decided to try 3 different first courses, one Main course to share, and dessert. All were OK but nothing special - Not the presentation or their flavors (except for one of the first courses). Table didn’t even had tablecloth and we had to ask for extra bread several times. In other High-End restaurant we always knew that you go and pay good money, but in exchange you get an extraordinary experience, atmosphere and flavors - starting with between-the-courses surprise dishes, cheese & desserts trolleys and more. Unfortunately, None of these we got at “Dinner”.

Excellent food. Enjoyed the nitrogen ice cream cone at the end. But the large room and hard wood floors make the service feel a bit militaristic with everyone looking and sounding a bit rushed. But one on one the service was personable.

Great restaurant, good food, nice service but I didn't see the 2 Michelin stars in my experience. It lacked the genius touch in dishes, the precision and service was really nice and professional but not that sharp. Location is great, room is really nice, great to have the view on the kitchen. Quite modern and easy going.
