Dinner by Heston Blumenthal - Crown Melbourne
What started as an exercise in curiosity by Heston Blumenthal, has resulted in almost 20 years of research and discovery. Alongside Ashley Palmer-Watts, the two chefs created a menu inspired by the tastes and flavours of Britain, from the farmers plate to the royal courts, offering a contemporary gastronomic insight from Medieval c.1300 to Victorian c.1800.

Amazing will go back again, great vibe , superb wine list great view 's of the Yarra , exceptional service and food
We could not fault anything about our experienc. The food was unique and diverse. The wine list was fantastic and the service was impeccable- all staff were very friendly and attentive to customers needs. The view and atmosphere of the restaurant made it an amazing experience. It is honestly well worth the money you spend to go here! Would definitely love to come back again
Excellent service. Fantastic food. Fruit wine cocktail was spectacular
An experience but somewhat below expectations.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who truly appreciates find dining and exceptional food.
Excellent service and food. Would definitely go back again
Fabulous! A must-do every time we come to Melbourne.
First date perfection
good food, pitty they couldnt have what I ordered
but still a good meal
The food was excellent however the service was lacking. It’s a shame because if the service was improved it would be a truly magical restaurant. Waiters were inattentive and very slow to take orders, refill water ect.
It was a great night, exceptional service, the dessert was the highlight.
Meat fruit was the highlight in terms of presentation and taste. Other dishes I didn't find the wow factor this time around. I was disappointed the lunch menu is limited and half the dishes I was planning to order was only available for dinner. This was not reflected on their website menu. Service was great. Friendly, welcoming and helpful.
The food was superb, the ambiance was intimate, and the staff were so wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable.
Everything was just spot on.
Lovely long lunch with a friend.
I took my fiance here for her 25th birthday and we were both so impressed with Hestons quality of service. From first walking in and being seated at the bar, the bartender was very entertaining and engages in good conversation with us. When we got to the table, the staff really looked after us and made us feel very comfortable. They were very professional and always paid attention to us. The food was amazing, we even got complimentary dessert because they remembered it was my partners birthday.
Impeccable service. Great recommendations from the Sommelier (Michael). Fantastic recommendations from the bar staff re cocktails. Overall ambience was professional, relaxed and friendly.
An amazing night to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
Our sommelier Sam was very knowledgeable on all the wines that matched our meals. The meat fruit was amazing, I think it's the best thing I have ever eaten. The Cherry Isle Bar dessert was just such a celebration of the Australian icon chocolate bar. I found a new gin (Beefeater) whilst trying one the Riberry Pink Gin. My husband and I both said this was the best meal we have ever eaten.
What an amazing foodie experience. I liked the restaurant because it was all about the food without the theatrics and gimmicks.
The wait staff were exceptional, attentive, well versed on the menu and patient without hovering and constantly trying to sell you more.
The wine list is amazing and the house beer was exceptional.
Definitely one of the bucket list restaurants you must try. We are back on the 20th of October for our friends wedding anniversary.
Our second time. Seemed rushed. Service a little out of synch. Food excellent but dessert and the extra ganache cup coming at the same time was too much food.
The experience at Dinner by Heston was incredible, but the food was not to my or my groups taste unfortunately. The flavours are not traditional, which i expected to a point, however i found most of the meals have elements that overpowered the dish and were not necessarily pleasant. Also traditional expectations of crispy skin on duck breast and crackling on pork belly werent there which i thought was a let down. Im pleased we went, was on my bucket list, but we unfortunately wont be back.
Food was amazing, the dessert - Eggs in Verjuice was stunning. Amazing Birthday dinner.
Amazing I can’t wait to go again
It was our 10th wedding anniversary and the staff made it special, we were very impressed!
Once again flawless
i haven't had anything like it before. the menu is very unique and creative
Best meal of my life. Travelled from Sydney specially.
The food was extraordinary, loved all flavours throughout the meal. Beautiful presentation on all dishes and the service was nothing I have experienced before. The wait staff were all in sync and so attentive to our needs. I can't express enough how impressed I was with my experience, loved every bit!
Great food combined with great service in a relaxed environment
Simply superb! Discrete but highly attentive service and mouth-wateringly beautiful food. Wonderful setting with fantastic view of the river.
Just the experience of going to a Heston Blumenthal restaurant was great. Portion sizes were bigger than expected for such a fine dining experience.
From entering the restaurant right through to the final meal, dinner by heston does not disappoint. The service is impeccable with their extensive knoweledge of every drink and meal.
The atmosphere is amazing with brilliant waterfront views.
This restaurant does not disappoint and we would gladly come back again.
Excellent service and quality of food. Very good experience
We had heard about the high quality food at Heston but the service was also exceptional, and the ambience very romantic!
A great experience, will definitely return.
Jonno, the General Manager is the perfect host, took time to show us the workings of the kitchen.
We were looking forward to experiencing Dinner. Greeting was excellent, staff attentive.
A couple of small gripes took the edge of the experience.
No sweeteners available for coffee/tea -sugar only.
A charge of 1.25% for paying with a credit card.
Dinner by Heston Blumenthal sits in the middle ground where it is not true "fine dining" yet above level of a normal high end restaurant.
While it's not the Fat Duck it does have it's share of theatrics with the table side ice cream cones, Meat Fruit etc.
Extensive Wine List and impeccable service
This is our third time at Dinner by Heston and its once again exceeded our expectations!! Lovely atmosphere and the staff are amazing!! So knowledgeable and super friendly and chatty!!! We will of course come back again!
Place was amazing and staff made us and our friends (who had been recently married) feel very special. Staff are incredibly professional, fun and made the lunch a really relaxed but incredibly enjoyable experience. The food was delicious, different and memorable. Was a fantastic meal. Thank you.
I had arranged as a suprise to my wife for our 18th wedding anniversary. The level of service, quality of the food and the setting helped make it as special as I wanted it to be :)
What a wonderful experience- a taste bud sensation,excellent service,great view,extensive wine list!!

Could not fault this experience. From start to finish it was brilliant. 10/10 on all fronts!
