Very disappointing for a Michelin restaurant. Bread served before starter was rock hard. Feared I’d break my teeth on the crust. Dishes were unbalanced and not very good.

Incredible food - signature meat fruit, bone in prime rib and tipsy cake are highly recommended - and absolutely the best service. It comes at a price but well worth it for the special occasion.

This is my second time at Dinner by Heston. Loved it, especially thought the Sambocade (goat's milk cheesecake) was sublime! Pigeon was very good as well.

Highly delightful experience, the service is to die for - seriously, the staff is ‘too charming’ if there is such thung. And knowledgeable. Service with a smile. Food was as expected - simply fantastic! You need to keep an open mind about the concept. Sommelier seems to be well versed with cocktails, which is a lovely add on. We will be back for sure!

The food was amazing, but the service very lacking. Left waiting for 45 minutes between starter and main, and completely ignored after main. Had to wave down waiters to even get the dessert menu:

Fantastic knowledgeable service, friendly and on the ball. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone looking after us shared information about the menu options or wine. Demonstrating a real passion for what the do. The food is traditional but sensational. Great flavour combinations from some traditional and historical dishes brought up to date and supercharged in a way only Heston can. A brilliant experience.

We dined here for my birthday as a party of 7. My husband and I have been here several times (6 or 7) so it’s obviously one of our favourites. This visit as far as service goes was a bit disappointing. We arrived a little early so decided to have a drink in the bar. It took an age to be asked and then delivered a drink. There was not much of a ‘service with a smile’ either. On being seated in the restaurant again the service was a bit lacking. It didn’t feel that special and I had specifically wanted to come here because we have always felt welcomed. The food was the plus point-it’s always good. However, I’m not sure I would choose it again as quickly. My husband had spent a pretty penny to take us all here too. Shame!

Fantastic experience. The scene was set from the off with the grand entrance to the hotel, and polite friendly staff to great on arrival. The staff were exceptional. As expected they were knowledgeable about the menu and the Heston theatre, however the smiles and attentiveness really shone through throughout.

The food was stunning. Tasty, fun, interesting - a real flavour sensation. The real star of the show from my meal was the Tipsy Cake - tasted amazing and highly recommended.

Will definitely visit again.

Very underwhelmed by the meal. Main of duck was cold, starter and dessert were ok, nothing memorable. My partners steak however was amazing! Felt let down after wanting to dine there for a long time! Wasn’t worth the hefty £230 for lunch for two. Staff were friendly apart from one French waiter who rolled his eyes in disgust when we said we wanted to try the ice cream, which he has to make at the table! Unfortunately we won’t be visiting again.

The food was good but not extraordinary. As compared to other ‘world’s top 50’ this is not as good.

The service was very slow and spotty with knowledge of items.

Overall, it did not feel as polished or posh as some of the others that share similar ratings.

 (London)·Dined on December 6, 2017

So the vast majority of reviews are very favourable but a few advise caution. This was not in my experience a 2 star Michelin meal. Much of the menu is very imaginative but some dishes disappoint - the bone marrow starter and the chicken main course were distinctly average and lacking any star quality. Conversely the meat fruit (seasonal variation) and the octopus starter were exceptional and the duck and pigeon very good indeed. The brussels sprouts were amazing! Puddings x 3 took in Tipsy Cake, brown bread ice cream and Taffeta tart were all very good as was the apes-dessert we were offered. Wine mark up silly but you know in advance that going to be the case. We had a corner table so relatively quiet. Service competent but again not right up there with 2 star Michelin - we had better at Bibendum on a couple of occasions.
Am I glad I went - yes just about.
Will I go again - unlikely.
