First of all food and service were great! The dishes were original and most of all delicious, the service was very good as well. My first impression wasn't very good, the place looked very shabby already from the outside and inside it was even worse. The table were all ruined, the atmosphere was of a cheap restaurant. Special of the day written on a tiny whiteboard visible just to some guests. I organised a romantic date and I found myself in a very casual environment, too close to the couple next to us.
We had another phenomenal meal at Dinings and can't wait to go back!
Great Food and 1st class service
We were lucky to have given a couple of new dishes that the chef was developing- sauté mushrooms and grilled giant prawn. They were both excellent and I look forward to seeing them on the menu.
Nice food. Poor service. Overpriced
Service has always been excellent although a little slow this last time. I noticed there were not as many sushi chefs behind the counter and you were fully booked. Food was excellent as always and quality superb! The room is not exciting but I dont go to Dinings for atmosphere and it does not matter to me. I do not think the price is expensive for the quality of the food. Yes I will definitely come again and would highly recommend this restaurant. It would be wonderful if the desserts were more typically Japanese but I don’t suppose they would be too popular. Regardless its a place I look forward to going. Susan
Everything was perfect! Will definitely be returning and highly recommend to anyone who hasn’t been
Fantastic restaurant... appreciate the quality of food ... my only suggestion is get better staff the ones you have there are good people but not very good with the fine art of good service which a restaurant of your caliber should have.
Service of wait staff was terrible, brought down the whiole experience.
It was one of the most exquisite food experiences in a long time. Probably the best Japanese food I had in my life. Thank you!
Best sushi and best service that we have ever had!
Service wasn’t professional and friendly.
The sashimi was excellent but I found the sauce on my cod and the salad dressing too sweet. On a previous visit on Tuesday, I couldn’t drink my lobster soup as it was too salty. Everything else was good, esp service
The best restaurant in London
The food was very good, the service would however prevent me from returning. I can appreciate the quirky charm of fine dining in a basement but the restaurant was dirty and the staff were clueless. We waited a long time to be served, once we had ordered, the food came at irregular intervals with no sense of coursing. We ordered wine which the server couldn't really discuss, after we reminded her twice, the bottle finally arrived and was served at the incorrect temperature with no discussion. We asked for it to be chilled, then had to ask for our glasses to be filled each time. The servers were taking away dishes that were clearly unfinished, and then when were done we sat at a dirty table and had to find someone to bring our bill. Based on this experience I would definitely not return, nor would I recommend a visit to anyone.
Top 5 meal of my life. Posted on Instagram immediately. Absolutely fantastic food, great service (knowledgeable staff). Truly an unbelievable night!!
We come twice a year and it is the first time service was disorganised. This is a shame considering the price you pay. However food was amazing as always.
Spectacular omakase. I absolutely loved it,for my second time. And sushi chef was phenomenal. It is a little busy at the sushi bar area, with service, while perfectly accomodating, somewhat frazzled. But overall a fantastic experience.
Service was extremely poor, especially considering the cost of the meal; i’m sorry to say perhaps the most incompetent service I have experienced in 6 years living in London, including far less expensive restaurants. Our waiter had no experience with the menu, and in a parody of catering technology gone wrong we spent more than 10 minutes waiting for him to attempt to find each item of our order by individually typing everything into a tablet that he obviously wasn’t at all familiar with, with multiple mistakes that would have gone through in the order if I hadn’t been reading over his shoulder. It also took an eternity to order more food or drinks throughout the evening; bizarrely the concierge at the front desk refused to handle quick additional orders and told us “her colleague would come soon”, which I would understand except for the fact she was a 5 second walk from the kitchen and spent most of the evening standing at reception doing nothing, and indeed our waiter did not come for a long time so her having taken our order would have avoided us spending quarter of an hour waiting around for the waiter. Thankfully the meal was saved by the fact that the food itself was absolutely outstanding, the chefs were friendly and clearly very talented (and even took our order a few times when they observed that we’d been eating “slowly” - because the waiter was nowhere to be seen!). It’s just a shame such faultless food and talented sushi chefs are not supported by the same quality of service.
The food was absolutely delicious! Especially the little chips with salmon. The service was good.
Table service, food and drink made up for the poor customer service upon arrival on time at 8.15. I was told that as I had requested the booking had been pushed back to 8.30. I confirmed this wasn’t the case and I had received no phone call either. This resulted in myself and my husband standing outside with our guests who are over 70 for 20mins. Only to find that a mistake had been made and the change was done by another branch but not communicated. As I say, the table staff, food and drinks made up for the this mistake which was very disappointing. Would have been 5stars but this knocked off 2 from service.
Lovely night, thank you for your service!
Great food, just so delicious but if you have an appetite it’s hard not to spend £150 without alcohol for 2 and that’s a Lot.
Amazing as always. Brilliant food, great service and atmosphere. Will be returning again and again!
Amazing dining experience and excellent food
