Summary

“Wow, what a debut!” – this “huge”, two-floor (plus basement bar), glass-fronted opening, on which Russian-owned Hedonism wines have reportedly spent £20m, is the most ambitious new project of 2018, occupying a landmark, 250-cover site “with a great view over Green Park”, which old hands will remember from days of yore as the home of Fahkreldine (long RIP). On the ground floor (‘Hide Below’ – price shown) is an all-day luxurious brasserie, while this first-floor location is dedicated to even finer dining from a six- or nine-course tasting menu (all-in with wine from about £200, with a lighter three-course option available at lunch). Chef-patron “Ollie Dabbous has done it again” with his “exquisite”, “light-with-a-Nordic-touch” cuisine, which “looks fabulous and tastes even better”; and whose “extraordinary attention to detail” matches that of the “stunningly beautiful” interior (which, in an ultra-luxe way, also appears “charming and simple”). At both locations, you can order from the “remarkable wine list”, also with the option of dialling up any of the 6,500 wines stocked by Hedonism’s Mayfair store (keep a clear head though – their most expensive vintages are over £10k!). “Definitely memorable!”

"A remarkable dining experience and inventive and precise cooking that never lost it's sense of fun. The pairing wines were interesting and appropriately priced. The room itself is beautiful and we appreciated the spacing of the tables."

"Although I score this restaurant quite highly it is pretentious and trying too hard. Not a place that ordinary mortals can feel comfortable in."

Reviewed 8 months, 13 days ago

"Overpriced, underwhelming food (I asked for a poached egg, not a hard-boiled egg..) and stiff and uncaring service. Shame as this has potential but currently give it a wide berth until standards improve."

Reviewed 9 months, 2 days ago

"Brilliant food 'Above' - intense exquisitely executed, somehow with a hint of rustic. Room for improvement, especially on desserts, but still best in London for a long time. Astonishing wine list. Service that perfect elusive blend of relaxed and immaculate. Interesting space (check the stairs!), but too much downlighting. Amazing sour mango pisco + mate cocktail 'Below'"
