Prefer to study a wine list rather than be confronted with the wine waiter's expensive recommendations. Also asked whether it was an occasion when we booked which it was but no celebratory gesture was offered.

One of the best meals I've had in london. Michelin, get that third star ready, this place is next level. The service was too notch and the wine team was amazing. Life is short. Make the reservation! @100lastmeals

The design of the restaurant filled with me joy. Lunch menu we had on Saturday had the right amount and variety of flavors to tackle imagination. I wish I didn’t eat as much crudites and bread served at the begging of the meal. Everything about this experience is like being on upward spiral of pleasure waves. Check out the middle floor before leaving ;)

It was a most enjoyable Valentine's Day lunch in nearly every respect. The only negative was the fact that waiters had to squeeze past our table to get to the cupboard with glasses and decanters in it - most distracting.

My third visit but first to Above. Service is impeccable. Great room. Wine list is legendary as well. With a range of price points and styles. Our tastings were all at least very good. Some dishes quite plain eg the steamed vegetables to open with. Some dishes had plenty of creativity like the best egg. But it’s no surprise this is a place for indulging for special occasions.

Lovely experience, wonderful food, amazing service. My partner would have loved to see slightly more variation in the later courses on the vegetarian tasting menu (one can only have so much celeriac) but even so we were well taken care of and would not hesitate to return.

I came to the restaurant for my boyfriend's birthday.
I was always curious about the place as I often pass by the area.
The place was very beautiful inside. The atmosphere was very relaxed and quite.
Some restaurants are very busy and squeezy but this place was just right.
Staffs were not only providing the best comfort and cares but also explaining what we were experiencing in detail. I would definitely recommend to my friends, but at the same time, hoping it doesn't get too crowded and difficult to book!
I took off one star only because I really wished to sit by the window enjoying the park view but unfortunately didn't happen this time.

We booked a table at 9.30pm - had to wait 20 mins to finally sit down at 9.50pm. Table was right by the kitchen door which was flying open every 30secs. We complained and were moved. Then waited and waited and first amuse bouché was served at 10.40pm. By then we were hungry and tired and fed up. Meal ended at 00.45, we had at least 15 waiters serving us, totally impersonal. Place is like a giant train station with staff literally running from end to end. It’s the second time we have come to Hide Above, first time was underwhelming and second time even worse. Food was good but experience was tiring overall. So many good restaurants in London, not worth going back to that one.

I love this place so much for the ambience. Bar for excellent cocktails. Design. Service.

But our last visit was in Hide Above for tasting menu. When you like the place, you can forgive everything and come back again anyway, but honestly, food is not great at all. We finished our dinner and we were hungry and not really excited about the food, we just tried. I couldn’t even eat beef, it was stinky and fatty. Eel was fried too much and so tiny portion even for tasting menu. I like egg nest and first starter with vegetables.
Presentation is great, bravo! So our last experience was a bit controversial. We will come back for sure, but please, work on menu and quality of food!
Thanks.

Beautifully presented food, lovely date atmosphere, but some of the tasting menu dishes provided strange strong flavours that slightly ruined the experience. ie egg in the nest was not tasty, wagyu beef felt slimy, and the baked Alaska was just plain boring to taste. Won’t be coming back.

We were a little underwhelmed by our lunch at Hide. The restaurant is stunning and both service and food were very good but not outstanding. At that calibre and price we expect to be wowed and we walked away thinking it was only okay. The Baked Alaska was the stand-out dish and our sommelier was exceptionally good. There was one server who hovered a lot and asked us how each dish was after the first bite, which was irritating rather than helpful. These things are the difference between retaining a Michelin star and not, or gaining another one.

This was my third visit to Hide Above and it was again excellent. One small plus that makes the service stand out. As the main bottle of wine I had ordered had to be delivered in and not be available for 15 minutes, my guest and I were poured free of charge 2 healthy portions of the Chassagne Montrachet that I had ordered by the glass - a truly classy gesture which typifies this restaurant.

A deep shame. Hide Above unfortunately must have hidden its best below stairs on Saturday night! Where table clothes and theatre have been replaced by a view of a road and a linking stair maybe we should be careful not to reference a motorway service station.

Now I am a self confessed fan of Yevgeny Chichvarkin, owner of Hide and fine wine emporium Hedonism Wines for his ambition, excellence and (despite its position) relative costing at Hedonism. Less can be said about Hide Above.

With some anticipation (after sampling Dabbous kitchen previously) I had waited six months so it was no longer a “new restaurant” and visited on Saturday with an equally appreciative diner as a companion. It disappointed.

Like so many Michelin restaurants in London and elsewhere it offers only a five course taster menu. The claims for this vary from “Michelin demand it” to a sitting is too expensive to allow diners to take one dish and dwell. Well St John, River Cafe and Locanda Locatelli all prove the mistruth in this and all deliver proper food a la carte.

Hide Above seeks to charge £115 for their theatre. If like me you don’t want to be at a standstill or be spoon fed someone’s idea of a menu don’t go here. Unlike restaurants like Marcus down the road if you stray they don’t accommodate you. Putting two eggs on Hay or two fillets of eel where there once was one or a whole pigeon or an oversized (and untrimmed) piece of fois gras where there was previously a half deconstructed composition is not A la carte - it is conceit. To charge 75£ for two of these bastardised dishes is beyond that. It places them in the realm of 3 Star. The cookery is unfortunately not a match for their ego. Unseasoned egg. Uncooked mushroom.?Sprinkled seed on spinach’?

The service was brasserie efficient. The wine dispatched at pub bar room speed.

And all of that before the bill. The bottom line - Eye watering!!.

I don’t want blocks of ice (Even if offered) I want good food. Sort it.

The rating that I have appointend was influenced by the fact that restaurant has a Michelin star. Thus, the service should be impeccable and the general impression should be positive. In my case sometimes the service was mediocre, for example a waitress served the tartare before cleaning up the table.
Although the staff is polite and ready to help, they do not obtain enough preparation to be at the level of a Michelin restaurant. They made several mistakes which lead to confusion and spoiled impression.
As for the main courses they are well worth trying, the rest of the set lunch was not new.
finally the custumer had no choice but to tip and I consider it to be tasteless.
