Dinner by Heston Blumenthal
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!
Ideal for a super special occasion. The Tipsy Cake was absolutely gorgeous. Best desert I’ve ever had.
What a fabulous meal.
The cost was a little steep but wouldn’t stop us going back.
nice service with great food，especially the ice cream
Have been to the restaurant many times prior to the fire. This time staff were aloof and efficient but not friendly. Food was only ok- not value for money and did not feel special.
Great food quality, tasty and good service. I'll come back for sure
What a fantastic experiance I would highly recommend
Everything in there is 5 stars. Been there 3 times already, never disappoints.
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.
Didn’t like brown bread ice cream. Would have liked more info re histiry
I eat at a lot of nice restaurants and I easily put this in the top 5, maybe top 3, around the world.
Food was really good! Nitrogen ice cream was disappointing.. but overall great experience, will
be back for sure x
Amazing dinner and service- will visit again soon
The dessert was amazing. The fries were not good at all.
It is a shame that there is no tasting menu.
Absolutely amazing food and 5 stars service. Cannot recommend enough!
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.
We went for my partners 30th birthday, the staff could not do enough for you and the food was amazing!
I could not have been happier with my experience at Heston’s. It has been a bucket list item to go to one of his restaurants and Dinner by Heston exceeded my expectations. The staff were amazing and always there if you needed anything and were happy to have a little chat about our holiday and where we were from. I mention I use to be a chef to the maître’d and at the end of my dinner she took me for a closer look and conversation with the head chef. For where you are and who restaurant you are in the price is very reasonable.
Had a very lovely celebratory meal here. Was worth saving a few meals out to have a special one here. Service is impeccable and the food is amazing. The squab in particular was stunning. Will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu.
The food was quite excellent. The waiting staff were a bit too buzzy, interrupting conversation and upselling at every opportunity. Our waitress was lovely but both I and my wife struggled to understand her accent. I would go again, but I would go after taking the day off, rather than after a day at work. You need to be fully present to enjoy this experience.
Third time visiting hestons and this most recent visit was disappointing. Although the food was excellent, the service was poor. We had to request for someone to take our order after waiting over 40 mins, similar wait when asking for the bill, the service was not as attentive as we would have hoped.
We asked for extra toast at ordering for the meat fruit, and got one slice between 3 orders and ended up asking thrice! I think just little things like this could have been handled a bit better.
To add to this, the cloakroom arrangement is rather disorganised, on returning the ticket we had two bags missing.
All in all a bit disappointing, this wouldn’t put me off going ahead for the food but would be worth the restaurant paying more attention to its service levels.
Went there to celebrate his birthday. Excellent service!
With a Heston Blumenthal, 2-Michelin star restaurant, we expected elements of fun, surprise and quirkiness with creative, delicious food. Our dining experience at Dinner lived up to all our expectations. We had a fabulous time and would come back again!
It was our first visit to the resturant and it was a birthday surprise for my wife. We were looking forward to our visit for weeks and it didnt disappoint.
The service was exceptional from start to finish. Friendly exceptional staff serve us with a smile and catered for our every need.
The food was the best we had ever tasted and was presented excellently.
My wife especially like her desert. Personally having a more savoury tooth my favourite was the main course. The duck just melted in my mouth.
Though it wasnt need the theatre of the ice cream made with nitrogen was not only fun but tasty.
For a special occasion it ticked every box. I highly enjoyable experience.
An excellent meal in a lovely welcoming atmosphere
Amazing setting, service & food! 100% recommend. I was just gutted I was too stuffed to have dessert!
The food here was absolutely sublime and the staff were excellent - warm, friendly and professional. I am lusting after the rice and saffron dish.
Went there for the 3/4th time. Somethings do not disappoint, like the meat fruit and tipsy cake. But do not understand why these options are not available in the set lunch menu.
We had a delicious meal at Dinner on Saturday. The service was exceptional, the food was fantastic and the overall experience was lovely. The service staff were attentive without being overbearing and were all of a happy disposition. We had the bone in beef for 2 and it simply melted in your mouth, I had the brown bread ice cream for dessert and it was such a unique dessert. We would definitely return!
Dinner was amazing...such a fabulous evening of food and ambience and service excellent
Exceptional meal at a world class restaurant. Food and service were second to none. A special mention to Manual for helping with the wine and making the evening flow so well.
Outstanding experiance and delicious! Wonderful service and knowledgeable Austrian team!
The service was a little rushed to start, (ie seated at the bar and then asked to move within 60 seconds).
The food was very good but portions were small. When I worked in hotel restaurants I found that a customer enjoys the experience more if the staff create a relationship with the diners so that the customer feels free/relaxed to ask questions.
One waiter in particular should not be working for the Mandarin as they were messing about trying to get laughs from other staff members - not what you expect from an establishment of this quality.
Whenever I’m in London I always make it a point to visit Dinner by Heston. From the moment you arrive at the coat check till you leave the members of staff make you feel welcome, appreciated and take great care of all the guests! The food as always was outstanding, for starters we ordered the meat fruit and roasted marrowbone (both exceptional), mains we both had the ribeye with triple cooked chips along with a side of creamy mash and roasted carrots (everything was perfect) and then for dessert we ordered 2 of the infamous tipsy cake which was a wonderful end to a wonderful meal! Thank you Dinner by Heston! Can’t wait to visit again
