                                                    Quite disappointed really. The food was the same, but if I’ve been there before the wow factor was gone. The service was good, but the place was more than half empty so the atmosphere was much tuned down, which made the experience less enjoyable. They’ve replaced the set lunch menu w a five course lunch menu instead, at twice the price. 600 GBP for lunch for three people (including a bottle of wine), was significantly overpriced for what it was.

                                                    My son’s promotion and I won a major new client, so we thought we would splash out. We had the tasting menu and wine pairings, finished with a perfect glass of port. Exceptional from start to finish, we loved it!

                                                    After deliberating for quite a while about going to Dinner, we had a reservation cancelled at another restaurant so I thought we would try this out. Obviously seeing all the magical stuff Heston does at the Fat Duck we was excited about the menu. I just felt from the moment we walked into the nigh on empty restaurant which felt very kitchen like, to the service and ultimately the food it was very disappointing. The starter, The meat fruit was ok, my wife's scallop with horseradish was again ok. What disappointed me was both my wife's and my main meals. My wife ordered the black foot pork chop. Now a pork chop is a lovely piece of meat with a bone attached and ultimately sumptuous pork crackling surrounding the edge of it. What was served was 2 fillet like pieces of pork, 1 of which was very dry in texture. I had the ribeye steak at a mouth watering £58 which again was ok but nothing to write home about and triple cooked chips, worthy of a 1 Michelin star restaurant? The service was incredibly slow in getting drink re-fills even though the restaurant was only a 1/4 full. We didn't even go for dessert which was disappointing as I have heard good reports on the Tipsy cake. Overall the food was ok at best but left there feeling very underwhelmed.

                                                    Beautiful setting, service and food. A perfect ‘occasion’ restaurant and very worthy of 2 Michelin Stars.

If you have a chance to order the scallops starter - it is amazing. The best scallops I have ever tasted. Service is impeccable. Loved every minute.

                                                    We stopped by for a birthday lunch for my bf, and this place did not disappoint! From the decor, service to above all the food- it was a great meal! We have been trying quite a few Michelin spots around London and something or the other has been off with every meal. Not here-every course was perfection! We will be back for sure!

                                                    I have to say, having looked forward to this celebration for ages as it was my birthday, we were both really disappointed with everything. We decided to opt for the set menu to include the wine to accompany each item and we were rarely seen and sat with empty glasses half the time. The number of times we had a waiter/waitress walk past us and did not acknowledge us. We were expecting the food to be amazing but it was simply standard food, sadly the fish was very salty. Having been to a number of expensive restaurants, we have always been blown away by the service/treatment and food but this time extremely disappointed.

                                                    As always, a fabulous meal as Dinner by Heston. Cannot fault the food or the excellent staff.

                                                    Visited Dinner quite a few times now. Food was excellent and the set lunch menu offers exceptional value.

                                                    We were unfortunately very underwhelmed by Dinner. The food was tasty but not memorable. I was hoping for exciting food, cooked to perfection, but sadly the food we ordered was not that exciting!!

                                                    Food was excellent but the standard of service was below what I would expect from a Michelin star restaurant. Also the ambience/ decor was more akin to a budget bistro rather than a fine dining restaurant.

                                                    The starters and desserts were delicious but I have had better steaks for half the price in my local restaurant. The drinks were way overpriced £22.50 for a vodka and tonic! The best thing about this restaurant was the service the staff could not do enough for you, never been treated so well anywhere fantastic staff.

                                                    Beautiful and perfectly done dishes. A feast for both the eyes and taste buds. Even my non-foodie friend enjoyed the experience and left happy and content. We did go to lunch and the prices were very fair for the effort that was put into each dish.

                                                    Delicious food, great views, excellent service but expensive

                                                    Of course it was expensive but the food was amazing and unlike anything you’ll get elsewhere. This is an amazing experience and treat. Do try the ice cream for the show (and it’s delish). Drinks are always super expensive. But you can’t really avoid that.

                                                    I booked Dinner as a 40th birthday present for my brother, and it was fantastic. Our steaks were so good that we both ate some really slowly because we didn’t want them to end! Neither of us had considers the tipsy cake until the waiter told us a bit more about it so we both ordered it....what a dessert! It was beautiful, no wonder it’s so popular. We also loved being able to see into the kitchen and see all the chefs creating their masterpieces. Not cheap but as far as I’m concerned, worth every penny!
