It's tough when your reputation precedes you. Service from first greeting to final was excellent, though at times I felt they were trying to hurry us along (they have a 2.5 hour limit for parties of 3, though as it turned out, no-one came in to kick us off our table when time was up.) My pre-dinner cocktail lacked the... More

We looked forward to dining here, and it was very good. But it wouldn't have more than one star in Belgium. We liked the meat fruit the most, were disappointed by the famous tipsy cake. Service was absolutely perfect, like in many places in Londen. Very nice and classy interior.

The food is very very good but perhaps not as outstanding as you would expect but the whole experience and the excellent service outweighs that. You must try the Tipsy Cake thought, it is the exception to what I have just written.

We were very excited about a family celebration at Dinner yesterday evening, but the overall experience was disappointing. That's not to say that the food and service weren't good, but they certainly were not spectacular - and some things really grated. The good - very unusual menu, nicely explained by the waiter, with a few very good dishes (meat fruit... More

Went for dinner. The food was nice but we got hurried out at the end of the meal which ruined it. The server put the bill on our table without us asking for it which surprised us for a two Michelin place. We'd been there about 2.5 hours at that point after having 3 courses. We paid. A few minutes... More

The experience is as much about the ‘theatre’ and delivery of food as the food itself but both were outstanding. The staff are knowledgeable and attentive; they helped to make our visit one of those much talked about and relived experiences.

I've been here three times now and look forward to going back many more. It really deserves it's second Michilin star. Elegant, value for money, great choice, excellent (but pricey) wine list.

Our experience started well, with the lady who took our booking not turning a hair at a request to book a 2-starred restaurant at less than 24 hours notice. Arriving, we lost ourselves in the cavernous and rather touristy Mandarin hotel but our spirits were soon restored by the welcoming attitude of all the staff at Dinner. Appropriately friendly informality,... More
