The whole thing, from start to finish was just out of this world! Brilliant meal in all aspects. We'd been dying to try dinner by Heston, but just couldn't afford a full meal there. Luckily, during the week they do a set menu at lunch time. It was wonderful! We also added the meat fruit (how could you not!) and... More

We were really looking forward to see what Heston's third venture might be like. Dearest hubby is a big fan of his (well, more his food!) and so am I. The Fat Duck will always be in our memories (even we are 90 and have no teeth left) and to us Heston Blumenthal certainly is The Man that put Great... More

Entrance 7/10. Lovely cocktails, eventually. We had to ask three times as our cocktails became lost in transit.  Starters-Meat fruit. 10/10. Best parfait/foie gras. Eyes in the back of the head stuff.  Moan barrow 5/10. Under seasoned, small portion, herb crust! With pickled veg! No thanks.  Mains- Pork Chop. 9/10 Chunky, moist,deep marbling.  Fillet. 10/10 Perfection, with Demi glace and... More

The cooking was magnificent, I have almost no criticisms other than wonder at the turnips served with duck (why is this tasteless root so fashionable, I wonder?) and the service was impeccable, apart from having to wait ages to get the bill. The "but" refers to the room, oddly dark despite the nice windows at the rear and the large... More

We visited Dinner by Heston on our honeymoon with two friends who live in London. We had very high expectations and it was one of the things we were most looking forward to. We were not disappointed! We pre booked a table well in advance. We arrived early and the table wasn't quite ready so we sat in the adjoining... More

Dinner is not only about great food, it's about the experience. From the moment you enter you are greeted with a large dining room, giving space and privacy to every table without affecting the atmosphere greatly. The staff and service are fantastic, not over bearing and extremely knowledgeable about the food and the concept. We had a table directly in... More

We went here for 25th wedding anniversary dinner and will remember this dining experience forever! The chef is the most creative artist! The use of foods, history and herbs....wow. The service was amazing, relaxed atmosphere and beautiful views of Hyde park. Michelin rated!!!

I've eaten at Dinner a couple of times now; and rate it very highly. It is expensive - but the experience and food are both excellent, and Dinner represents reasonable value. The service is excellent, and the meat fruit to start, and pork chop to follow are my personal favourites.

What a terrible restaurant. I went for my birthday and have warned to come here since the day it opened. You are ushered into the 'Mandarin bar' which resembles a airport waiting room. So bizarre as it's not actually a bar. The waiters take orders, walk behind a wall and then reappear with drinks! Dinner itself is an underwhelming space.... More

I have been here 4 times and i could not change my mind. I order all the same meny just because of those flavours. Expensive but so what! One of The World's best culinary art! Worth it! Like i said, eat and die!
