Size Isn't Everything!

The reception, the sommelier, the wine list, the 5-star food, the service - cannot heap enough accolades onto this small, local Chiswick restaurant. We three opted for the 4-course lunch menu (no specifics were given). The service from beginning to end was very good and the wines were superb, but... read more

I feel bad about giving Hedone an "Average" rating. I liked the waiting staff, though they did seem a little too rushed: single diners like myself appreciate a bit more lingering detail about the food. It was also great to sit at the bar seat and watch exceptionally dedicated cooks do their thing. Even the guy washing the dishes knew... More

We had a great lunch here, the lobster dish was beautiful! Also the chocolate bar with cherry sorbet (I think) was the best we have had! Just a note that the ambience wasn't for me as the kitchen is very very open and is the "centrepiece" of the room. I just was not feeling it although most will prob love... More

We came for a special occasion and had saved up to come to what we thought would be a wonderful place. Overall we had a nice experience; we had some outstanding dishes and some other nice, but not very remarkable courses, and the wine pairing was excellent. However, while the staff were generally very professional and affable, we were very... More

Second visit and had an overall average experience. Some dishes were outstanding ("fish & chips", venison, umami broth) but overall very forgettable. Cooking is technically great (the langoustine and scallop dishes were perfect) but flavour combinations lost the brilliance of it (overwhelming). The chef is wonderful, had a great conversation with him, could have spent hours more talking to him... More

We came for dinner on Wednesday evening. Both of us come from the industry and have been working for restaurants of the competitive scene and I have to say this is the best restaurant we have experienced so far. First of all, the front of house, great, the Manager is a charming lady very lively and aware of your needs... More

unprepossessing venue. Inside is knowledgable and friendly service. Food was clever, interesting, amusing and delicate . Menu is set, so you can't and don't chose. Was interesting to see what comes next. Note that fish is not "undercooked" as has been stated. This is slow cooking...almost sushi. Only criticism is the wine list: not very extensive ( likely space considerations)... More

Whilst I love raw food like sushi and rare cooked meats, both the scallop and the dover sole dishes were undercooked. Scallop was translucent/milky grey and the texture gelatinous and fibrous. The dover sole was rubbery and chewy. This left both my parents-in-law and my wife reaching for our serviettes and politely pushing the remanence to the sides of our... More
