We had high hopes that this would be a lovely, special experience. Food was very nice the amuse Bouche especially tasty. Wines were lovely. Service, indifferent and not up to Michelin standard. A couple of lovely staff but generally detached and lacking warmth and a desire to ensure the customer ear has a great experience. Not one member of the... More

Was there for 3 hours for a birthday and had the tasting menu.... The most expensive bill I have ever paid for one of the most disappointing meals I have ever had... The staff stealthily ramp up the addtiional bill while you are topped up with wine and still water All of this would be fine if the food was... More

I booked this restaurant for my husband's birthday. I was looking for somewhere special and, after considering all of London's fine dining options, chose Hedone, primarily because I wanted great food and didn't intend on becoming best friends with the staff. That said, I became increasingly nervous in the run up to our dinner, as more reviews poured in about... More

My husband took me here for my birthday meal and we absolutely loved it. He is a chef and we are both big fans of tasting menus - we agreed that this was the best menu and most enjoyable experience that we have had together and we have tried quite a few places! The restaurant has a more laid back... More

The first... More

An average culinary experience made worse by the lack of an experienced sommelier with a questionable approach to customer service. The food is unimaginative and very middle road for the price you are paying. There is limited of the flare or exotic influence you would expect from a Michelin star restaurant. This negative coupled with an untrained sommelier that declared... More

We were extremely disappointed with our meal at Hedone, which was booked to celebrate a special birthday. Service was dismal from the start as our waitress was sullen and rude. After we requested an aperitif, she returned to toss the limited cocktail menu on our table without explanation (a simple "sorry, we don't have that, but here are the available... More

Outstanding meal at Hedone. First few courses whet the appetite...and then comes the crab; the most delicately cooked and beautifully sourced piece of seafood imaginable; paired with subtle apple and hazelnut flavours. It's just wow thereafter; every course amazes in its own subtle but unique expression of genius. Wine pairings are an education. Some stunning, really unusual fine wines -... More

The food was good, beside the lamb main course. The lamb was a large piece instead of nicely sliced and the meat was stringy and difficult to chew. Overpriced for Chiswick area. The waiters were difficult to understand but the (French) Chef de Service was very competent.

Belongs on the top 100 list, sad to see it drop a little this year. I put Hedone way above "Dinner by Blumenthal" and a close second to Ledbury. The tasting menu was outstanding, sitting at the Chef's "bar" gives a great view of the kitchen and the mechanics. You easily interact with the staff. Chef Michael is very personable... More
