What can I even say? Every item sounds better then the one before. No matter what you order prepare your tastebuds for culinary precision, I can not fault anything, from the first person who greets you with a smile down to the number of staff who pretty much do anything at your beckon and call. All staff were knowledgeable in the dishes heritage and wine list. Absolutely fantastic from Heston all the way down.
The ambience of the restaurant was beautiful and very romantic. The service was excellent, the staff were very professional and attentative. The presentation of the food were really nice and the taste and texture was perfect!
I like fine dining and Heston's food is deliciously prepared; not too little and not too much!
I will try the London one and see if the Melbourne one was really better (as suggested by the manager D.).
Just loved the experience in Melbourne, I wish Heston will open it in Sydney (imagine travelling from Sydney to Melb just to eat Heston's food!)
The food presentation was very beautiful. Staff and atmosphere was great
We found the overall experience a little disappointing. The staff were very attentive so no issues there. The food was disppointing. We shared an Angus rib eye and it was very grisly and chewy and not at the level for a restaurant are this quality and price. We passed this feedback at the time and we were offered a complimentary glass of wine. That was a nice gesture though we still paid $175 for a substandard meal.
Our experience was very disappointing our main the beef on the rib was so tough we couldn't eat then they replaced by chicken with lettuce I don't know who tasted it before it came out but far to salty and we really didn't enjoy it but desserts to die for the staff were really attentive and lovely just a same about the mains
Overpriced food with not so good service given by the staff. They keep chatting to each other and it is within hearing distance from the customers.
Fantastic had a great time food was amazing
Excellent, not sure about having to sit beside the service area, heard everything the service staff were saying.
Our dining experience at dinner by heston was exceptional minus my wagyu steak that was very tough, other than that it was an incredible experience and a must try. The service, we were unable to fault. Price wise it was expensive for what you get. Overall great restaurant.
The food was good but not excellent. Very high priced and not a very good cocktail selection. I wouldn't be rushing to go back. Tipsy cake was delicious but didn't need the pineapple.
excellent food as expected but far too pretentious & inflexible
One of the most overrated and overpriced restaurants I have ever visited. Most mains are cooked “sous vide,” which seems to be a fancy French term for “prepared in advance” and reheated, losing any real taste or character in the process. The well publicized Tipsy Cake dessert was just a piece of unmemorable cake with a wedge of cooked pineapple beside it. And the wines...a lovely list at simply eye watering price levels, most at three to five times high street prices. Not recommended!
Dinner for 3 ..... 9 amazing dishes!!! Expensive but definitely worth every dollar!!!
Our first visit here was a few years ago and was absolutely perfect, however this time was not, chicken skin left white and rubbery, strange flavour combinations that were unpleasant, missed the mark I’m afraid
A truly amazing experience, I have been before & will return. Took my 21 year old daughter who is a Heston fan, did not disappoint, she loved it! Service, ambience, food, presentation-exceptional, thankyou!
A wonderful combination of ambience and delicious food made for exciting experience over the evening.
Great food and amazing staff.
The whole dining experiene was amazing. Defiantly a must if you are in Melbourne and looking for something special. Staff were great, formal and so knowledgeable. The food was amazing! Will be going back when in Melbourne again.
Fantasic Service and food
Had the Trumpeter fish but very strong fishie taste and couldn’t eat it
Just brilliant on every. single. level. From the welcome team, to the table service. Everyone was highly attentive and knowledgeable about their particular speciality. Can't rate this highly enough. If only there was an 11.
We were celebrating my daughter's 21st Birthday and wanted to do something that was very memorable to her. She absolutely enjoyed the whole experience with the food and felt very special with the service that was given. I was very impressed with the staff and the way they took time to explain the food and the wine to us and felt a very personal touch to their service. That special kind of service really made our day.
Perfect place for a special occasion or just a dinner with a point of difference. The food is amazing and the level of service is outstanding.
Be prepared to spend as its not a cheap eat!
Well coming from far north Queensland as a par of 3rd year chefs. It was a jaw dropping experience as soon as the black doors opened. Food was spectacular, drinks were amazing and the staff made us feel right at home. Especially the tour of the kitchen after dinner was absolutely astounding!. 15/10 thank you very much
Lovely food and service. Highly recommended.
From the exemplary pre-dining bar waitstaff to the patient wine matching advice, the customer service was one of the things that made dining at "Dinner by Heston" a memorable experience. Food highlights included our three entrees: meat fruit, porridge and squid - all of which were exquisite. The comfortable layout and position by the river as well as the view into the bustling kitchen all added to the overall experience.
Speechless. Time and time again I'm amazed at the quality of food, service and ambiance at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal.
Highly recommended for a great night out, pricey but it's true that you get what you pay for!
Overall a disappointing experience. Rice & Skin starter was yummy, carrots & caraway side was delicious, and we loved the ice cream cart with fennel topping. But we wouldn't recommend any of the other six dishes we had--all average to below average for a restaurant of this calibre and price point (e.g., steak ordered medium rare came medium well). Service was also quite patchy. We love fine dining, but this one is a miss for us. Save your $ and go to Attica instead.
Best waiter staff in the Country
Exceptional service, food magnificent, ambience superb .
Thank you for making my daughter's birthday treat absolutely perfect.
The staff at Dinner By Heston went above and beyond to make us feel special as we were celebrating a 30th Birthday.
The food was exceptional, so delicious and so worth it. And the views were stunning.
We will definitely be returning here.
Thanks for a wonderful night!
Amazing experience. I am a regular diner at the best restaurants in Melbourne and this was up there with the best. Looking forward to going back!
Perfect place for diner
What an awesome experience. From the moment we walked up the moody entrance passage we new we were in for a magical night and it was! The food was sublime with little touches of share brilliance. Staff so attentive water was refilled and cutlery appeared with no interruption and they were very accommodating when I advised them that I was pregnant. Travelled from Christchurch, NZ & if lucky enough to return to Melbourne this will be at the top of my “must do, treat myself” list.
The menu had great variety. It’s a little a shame there is no degustation. But having the historical back story to dishes is really neat and special. The tipsy cake was the absolute highlight! Although had I had the pork belly for my main, it may be different :)
This is the second time I have been here. First time was disappointed. Thought give it another chance. It was my friends birthday and we had to wait 45 minutes to be seated. We had a 9.15pm reservation and we were seared at 10.00pm. Food took half an hour to come out. They kept giving us bread to fill us up. By the time we got our main we were full.
Pleased to say it was exactly as expected. Staff were amazing and so attentive. Food was amazing. Cocktails were out of this world. Would definitely recommend and next time I am in Melbourne I would love to return thank you.
Wow what an experience! The five course lunch menu was outstanding. We really enjoyed each dish - very tasty and well presented. The cocktails were also lovely. I thought the service was also fantastic and we liked the restaurant decor and ambience.
An absolute must, if you have not been before! The entire evening from start to finish was splendid. The wine list was never ending, the cocktails simply to die for, and the food was impeccable. I will definitely be back to sample other menu items.
The nicest food and best service I’ve ever experienced. The young French female sommelier was incredible. blew a crazy amount of money but worth every cent. Thanks to all the team for a wonderful night, don’t think it could have been better.
