Good, but not one of the best meals
A bit tricky to find as there is no signage for the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
Good food and great service. The restaurant was lovely and the experience was nice.
It wasn't the best meal I've had but it was still nice as a once off. The flavours sounded amazing but they didn't really wow me when we got dishes.
I'm glad I went for the experience but I probably wouldn't go again.
Special lunch date with sister.
2nd visit to Heston's, and once again, absolutely fabulous, the flavours were intense, the food divine, the service and
all the attention to detail was perfect, for people who have not been there yet, the staff go to great lengths to explain what
is in every dish, and if you don't know what something is, they explain with great enthusiasm and you don't feel like a fool.
In fact the more interest you show in the food the more they like it. For Knightsbridge the set 3 course lunch was also a
very reasonable price, so for those who have a modest budget, but like delicious food, and something a bit different, I
would suggest that you give it a whirl, you won't be disappointed.
Top notch...but noisy
Food and service at Dinner are quite exeptional. British classics with a modern twist and a menu with enough options to have to think carefully what to order as all sounds/looks nice.
As a lot of people are 'packed' into the restaurant it is quite noisy though, even to the amount of not being able to hear the waiters. But the quality of the food makes that just a small issue on a otherwise great meal!
Dinner was impressive from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Attentive and polite staff and fabulous, delicious food. I would definately recommend this restaurant.
A perfect treat
We (the four of us) all agreed this was, foodwise, the best meal we had ever had. We hate the stuffiness of some posh restaurants, so we appreciated the charming and friendly service at Dinner (neither servile nor patronising, just exactly right) and the relaxed ambience. Would recommend unreservedly.
From the moment of arrival, the experience was excellent. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable. The service was excellent, the restaurant was stunning as was the view. And the food... well that was best of all.
From the bread on the table, to the starters, mains and through to dessert nothing could be faulted. Everything has been well thought through. Loved the referencing to the original recipes.
Will definitely be back!
superb food, creative dishes, great service, perfect wine pairing, what more can you ask for? tipsy cake is a must!
Booked Dinner several weeks ago for a special occasion. Food was delicious, restaurant staff made us feel welcome and volunteered assistance with the menu etc... The food was really good, def recommend having the duck breast for main, and the tipsy cake for dessert. Overall good experience and would definitely go there again.
Amazing dining experience. Superb food, very well presented a delight to the eyes. Diverse menu choices, a great restaurant for a special occasion. Interior very well laid out with great views over the park and into the kitchen, lovely buzz and atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit and would recommend the cod in cider sauce, with shallots and many other ingredients all of which worked extremely well and the roasted spit pineapple and cake desert was amazing even if it was calorific!
We like Dinner. It's unpretentious,
We like Dinner. It's unpretentious, has a lovely outlook to the park, is adjacent to some of the more interesting streets and outlets in London and...it has a menu that has something for everyone, from the conventional to the challenging.
So, another successful and thoroughly enjoyable visit and, to misquote Arnie, "we'll be back"
Absolutely stunning and amazing
Absolutely stunning and amazing food, done The Heston way :-)
Great starters and desserts !
The Meat Fruit was exceptional, as was the icecream.
The main courses were good, but not necessarily memorable.
From starter to main to dessert, each course exceeded my expectations. I was expecting to be Wowed, and I was not disappointed. Apart from the food, special mention to the service staff, who did Dinner proud. They were attentive, but not obstructive, and they had that sixth sense when to appear and disappear.
Given the quality and service, it's worth the price!
A great experience with staff
A great experience with staff who know the menu and the wine
Fabulous Once again
Having been here for dinner on numerous occasion we ventured out for lunch on my birthday. being a crisp autumnal day we were seated by the window overlooking the magnificent Hyde park which was divine. The food was once again divine and the service impeccable. Heston really has created a special london restaurant and the only one i can't wait to return to each time i go!
Lovely pre-baby lunch
As my friend and I are both expecting little ones in January, we used this as an excuse to get a few friends together for lunch and wanted to treat ourselves to somewhere affordable but still special. Dinner fitted these criteria perfectly and even the set-lunch menu managed to cater well to pregnancy and vegetarian diets.
The service was amazing, always tended to, but never rushed allowing us to have a good catch up and still be there 3.5 hours later!
While there wasn't the craziness of Heston on the menu, the food was amazingly crafted and included some more unusual ingredients - allowing me to now say I have eaten pigs ears!
Second time we've been and despite the fact they could've up the number of frogs legs and parted with a few more pieces of pinnapple but it was a great night and thoroughly enjoyable.
As with all of these kinds of places you always feel that the wines are more extravagant than they need to be! Top quality wines need not cost the Earth and I do feel the markup is eyewatering but you expect it with these restaurants.
Very enjoyable and highly recommended!
Good as always
Took my parents, who were visiting from Australia, here for dinner. Food is excellent, as always, and staff were very attentive.
Very good experience overall
It was a lovely meal in a wonderful setting (spacious, with an open kitchen behind the glass). Friendly waiters, very good food, not too pretentious like in others restaurants of that level. Ice cream machine was interesting and fun. All in all, I highly recommend this place.
The dishes in the restaurant are very nice! We two ordered two starters, scallops and meat fruit( I prefer the scallops which are very fresh). The Prime is what will recommend to my friends as well, but it is too much for two girls I think. The dessert tipsy cake is one of the outstanding food that I have ever ate!! All in all, I really love this restaurant and I will visit there again.
Brilliant food in a classy place
Dinner by Heston definitely got my surprise when it received the second michelin star.
Comparing with the other 2 michelin stars restaurants in London, Dinner offers a different experience of food from not proposing a tasting menu and the fact that menu is meant to be only three courses, with no extra amuse bouche and petits four or any other frills.(table cloth, etc.)
But of course that doesn't mean that the restaurant felt short in any part of the dinner.
On the contrary they provided a remarkable experience about food and service (really superb) in a smart and modern ambience.
But at the end what surprised me the most was the price of the dinner were we spend only 100£ each for a 3 courses menu + glasses of champagne and wine.
The service and food were great. Expensive so for me it would be for special occassions but I would recommend it.
Booked the restaurant for my husband's birthday meal as a bit of a treat. The starters and desserts were really lovely and unusual though the main courses, whilst delicious, were not so different from what can be obtained in numerous other good London restaurants. Wine list is stocked with lots of high end bottles and expect to pay a mark up of at least 4X. Didnt like the fact that the waiter after showing the bottle took it away to open and then took it away each time the glasses were topped up, other than this service was faultless. Would recommend provided though do go in with your eyes open about the likely cost ie ~£300 for 2.
Best meal I have had (excluding mums cooking!), a real treat
Unbelievable food and excellent service by friendly and knowlegable staff
An amazing night with incredible food and wine and lovely staff. A completely unique and memorable experience
The name says it all
About as good as it gets. The presentation and quality of the food was about as good as it gets. Will be back...when I can afford it!
Amazing meal and brilliant service. Everything you could possibly expect for £110 a head. Meat Fruit is a must! also the tipsy cake will rock your socks!
The imaginative re-creation
The imaginative re-creation of old British food is not only fascinating but also outstanding in quality, whilst the waiting staff are appropriately attentive. The restaurant is sparsely but tastefully furnished. However, the lighting is a bit too dim at night.
Exceptionally high standards
Consistently excellent, with superb service. Not cheap but then how could it be?
We had the most amazing experience at Dinner @ Hestons, the atmosphere was relaxed and the service was impeccable. The food was beautiful and we enjoyed every little bit of it! Would definitely come back again if we are ever in London again. Thankyou!!
A memorable experience
My husband I visited the restaurant for the first time. The atmosphere was welcoming and friendly. Our waiter was most helpful and knowledgeable, encouraging us to try interesting and different dishes as he could see that was what we were after. Everything was superb, in particular the marrow bone starter and the brown bread ice cream. For a restaurant of this type, we thought the value to be excellent and will certainly be back again!
This was our second time at Dinner and it was as wonderful as the first, service was seamless and the food both inventive and innovative without the gimmicks. A momorable occasion
Super, like always!
This is for sure one of the best there is and this time like last we were not dissapointed! What we did this time that we will recommend to everyone is the icecream at the end!! A little action at the table with the liquid nitrogen and offcource it taste devine..
Spectacular meal. One of the
Spectacular meal. One of the best I've ever had. Service was exceptional.
Dinner at Heston's
The food was outstanding as expected and the service from all the staff was brilliant they new everything about there food and wine and could answer all questions. Excellent evening.
Everything was excellent
We shared the rib for 2 which was exceptional. The sommelier was also fantastic in recommending a bottle of red which we thoroughly enjoyed. I have been once before and would definitely go back again. Worth the hype.
Exceptional in every way
An exceptional lunch. We had a wonderful time.
The food was exquisite and the service struck the right chord of being attentive but not annoying.
5* all round.
Wonderful food, service and
Wonderful food, service and ambience. Prior to arriving they were very helpful in accommodating an extra person with only a few hours notice. The food was amazing and they portion size was a lot better than expected, highlight of the night was a toss up between the pork belly and the tipsy cake.
Our lunch here was flawless. We floated on a cloud of Dinner-induced bonhomie for the rest of the day and didn't want to come down. Everything was done with such care but not in a po-faced way. Lovely welcome, friendly and knowledgeable staff, beautiful room, staggering wine list and incomparable food.
Lunch at Dinner
A very good experience. Extremely satisfied, all my guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I can thoroughly recommend the house red wine
Highly recommend Dinner By Heston
Superb food and service. Will definitely be returning!!
Food and ambiance really great! Spicy pigeon was such a nice surprise. Timings between courses were perfect
Was not disappointed. Every dish was superb! Well explained by the very efficient and knowledgable staff. Incredible wine to compliment the meal. Well worth the hype and wait to dine. Hats off to Heston.
Excellent Dining Experience
Service was impeccable. The staff made great recommendations of the menu and explained our queries very well. Comfortable ambience and all our food tasted excellent. The tipsy cake was out of this world, and I would definitely return to savour other items in the menu.
the service was flawless.
the service was flawless.
id give the food a 7/10. The meat fruit and the steak (rare) were divine.
thought the scallops were a touch over cooked.
and i thought there was way too much steak and chips on the menu. Ordering steak is like giving the chef an easy ride.
Once in a life time
We were travelling from Australia and booked this as a special event. It was expensive but a once in a life time opportunity. The food was fantastic as was the service and the atmosphere. I liked the way the fruit fly hovered over the Meat Fruit, and then was never sen again throughout the rest of the meal.
Food and service lived up to expectations! Would recommend gladly!
Thursday dinner lived up to expectations by shed loads. The food was fantastic with Meat Fruit a must.
The staff were helpful, knowledgable and fun.
We are returning at the end of the month.
