    Amazing experience! Outstanding service, and provides excellent detail about thought process behind each dish. Excellent taste. Could use a texture. The duck was outstanding. The steak could’ve been a bit more moist and juicy, but was cooked perfectly otherwise. The triple cooked chips were fantastic, especially with the mushroom ketchup.

    It was supposed to be my 30th wedding anniversary dinner (missed it last year due to Covid). My daughter joined me due to a last minute illness that my husband had. I rang the restaurant to enquire if my daughter and my 1 month old grandson could join me. I was happily told that yes this wouldn’t be an issue and was told I’d be moved to a bigger table just in case we needed it. I was asked if we required a high chair which we didn’t but it was a great phone call after the disappointment of my husband been too unwell to attend. When we arrived at the hotel 2 gentlemen picked up the buggy and carried it up 2 flights of stairs where another gentleman arrived and took it up the next flight. My daughter and myself were blown away. They were so kind and gentle. The waiting staff were so helpful and patient with us. They explained everything to us. I loved the cards that was presented to us at the beginning (I won’t spill the beans on this (no pun intended) but this was a great touch too). Everyone was smiling and happy to be doing there job from getting the food out to clearing the plates away. My daughter had to go change her son and she quickly topped him up with a little milk. The staff waited for her to return before bringing out our food (waiter did say the food was ready but they’d keep it) and the food just couldn’t have tasted any better or being presented any more beautiful. The truffle ball was outstanding. Hopefully myself and himself will get to come along again hopefully before our 60th wedding anniversary.

    Quite disappointed really. The food was the same, but if I’ve been there before the wow factor was gone. The service was good, but the place was more than half empty so the atmosphere was much tuned down, which made the experience less enjoyable. They’ve replaced the set lunch menu w a five course lunch menu instead, at twice the price. 600 GBP for lunch for three people (including a bottle of wine), was significantly overpriced for what it was.

    After deliberating for quite a while about going to Dinner, we had a reservation cancelled at another restaurant so I thought we would try this out. Obviously seeing all the magical stuff Heston does at the Fat Duck we was excited about the menu. I just felt from the moment we walked into the nigh on empty restaurant which felt very kitchen like, to the service and ultimately the food it was very disappointing. The starter, The meat fruit was ok, my wife's scallop with horseradish was again ok. What disappointed me was both my wife's and my main meals. My wife ordered the black foot pork chop. Now a pork chop is a lovely piece of meat with a bone attached and ultimately sumptuous pork crackling surrounding the edge of it. What was served was 2 fillet like pieces of pork, 1 of which was very dry in texture. I had the ribeye steak at a mouth watering £58 which again was ok but nothing to write home about and triple cooked chips, worthy of a 1 Michelin star restaurant? The service was incredibly slow in getting drink re-fills even though the restaurant was only a 1/4 full. We didn't even go for dessert which was disappointing as I have heard good reports on the Tipsy cake. Overall the food was ok at best but left there feeling very underwhelmed.

    You cannot go wrong with any meal at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. Every menu item is thoughtfully put together and beautifully presented. If you have a chance to order the scallops starter - it is amazing. The best scallops I have ever tasted. Service is impeccable. Loved every minute.

    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.

    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.
