We stopped by for a birthday lunch for my bf, and this place did not disappoint! From the decor, service to above all the food- it was a great meal! We have been trying quite a few Michelin spots around London and something or the other has been off with every meal. Not here-every course was perfection! We will be back for sure!

I have to say, having looked forward to this celebration for ages as it was my birthday, we were both really disappointed with everything.

We decided to opt for the set menu to include the wine to accompany each item and we were rarely seen and sat with empty glasses half the time. The number of times we had a waiter/waitress walk past us and did not acknowledge us.

We were expecting the food to be amazing but it was simply standard food, sadly the fish was very salty.

Having been to a number of expensive restaurants, we have always been blown away by the service/treatment and food but this time extremely disappointed.

One last lunch before lockdown! Was fabulous as expected. Meat fruit was a highlight, and also loved the bread! Tipsy cake and the tamarind tart were a great end to the meal.

Excellent meal and lovely service and surroundings. Salamagundy is particularly good.

Expensive. £300 for two with four glasses of wine and a shared pudding.

We were unfortunately very underwhelmed by Dinner. The food was tasty but not memorable. I was hoping for exciting food, cooked to perfection, but sadly the food we ordered was not that exciting!!

Food was excellent but the standard of service was below what I would expect from a Michelin star restaurant. Also the ambience/ decor was more akin to a budget bistro rather than a fine dining restaurant.

The starters and desserts were delicious but I have had better steaks for half the price in my local restaurant. The drinks were way overpriced £22.50 for a vodka and tonic! The best thing about this restaurant was the service the staff could not do enough for you, never been treated so well anywhere fantastic staff.

Beautiful and perfectly done dishes. A feast for both the eyes and taste buds. Even my non-foodie friend enjoyed the experience and left happy and content. We did go to lunch and the prices were very fair for the effort that was put into each dish.

Of course it was expensive but the food was amazing and unlike anything you’ll get elsewhere. This is an amazing experience and treat. Do try the ice cream for the show (and it’s delish).

Drinks are always super expensive. But you can’t really avoid that.

I booked Dinner as a 40th birthday present for my brother, and it was fantastic. Our steaks were so good that we both ate some really slowly because we didn’t want them to end! Neither of us had considers the tipsy cake until the waiter told us a bit more about it so we both ordered it....what a dessert! It was beautiful, no wonder it’s so popular. We also loved being able to see into the kitchen and see all the chefs creating their masterpieces. Not cheap but as far as I’m concerned, worth every penny!

The food was amazing, we had the Last Supper at Pompeii menu and it is so well thought out and executed as well as being good value for money. Paired wines were spot on. Every member of staff was so professional but, at the same time, friendly and welcoming, we felt really comfortable here.

The service was as you would expect for an establishment of that calibre, food was second to none, amazing flavours and textures. Only disappointment, not being able to have the taster menu whilst seated in the restaurant. Having said that, we shall definitely be returning.

What more would you expect from something run by Heston, it was fantastic. The menu was creative and the staff took the time to explain the history and significance of each dish. The recommended wine pairings were spot on although I’m far from an expert. Only regret was not ordering the tipsy cake dessert once I’d tried a bit of my wife’s.
