Breaking news

June 2023: from August, Hide and Above at Hide will be combined into one restaurant, still serving both menus. You can now have breakfast upstairs, basically.

Harden's says

The larger, ground floor restaurant, open all day (previously listed as Hide Ground); see also Above at HIDE.

Fans say it’s “nicer eating on the ground floor than being restricted to the much more expensive tasting menu upstairs” at this glossy landmark, opposite Green Park. Open from early morning, it’s “an unusual but sophisticated haunt for breakfast in the heart of Mayfair”. And, as with upstairs, “the availability of Hedonism Wines via a tablet, means the wine list has more toys than Hamleys!”

The “wallet-friendly lunch” in the ground-floor dining room constitutes a welcome invitation to this otherwise eye-wateringly expensive venture opposite Green Park from chef Ollie Dabbous and Russian tycoon Evgeny Chichvarkin (owner of Hedonism Wines). “Once inside, it feels as though you’ve stepped onto the set of an ultra-chic modern-day remake of Alice in Wonderland”, with “fantastic food and ambience”. Top Tip: “Since lockdown, they’ve reduced the wine prices by £20 a bottle so it’s now perhaps the most exciting wine list in London AND at a very reasonable price – long may that last”.

As a way of dipping your toe into the Hide ‘waters’, the ground floor of this huge, Russian-backed project near Green Park tube is the safest place to start, offering a selection of menus from early morning onwards, and with a grazing menu, in addition to the (“punishingly expensive”) à la carte. As with Above, this likewise is a “beautifully designed and spacious set-up that’s good for more than just business but certainly good for a working lunch”. Top Tips – “wonderful breakfasts, with a coffee list too” and “lovely afternoon tea watching the world go whilst trying a variety of teas”.

"Food consistently delivers, but service was very poor. Inattentive and ambivalent. When asked specifically about the dishes, the reaction was ill-informed and indifferent. Pot luck where you sit. Tables close to the door are cold and draughty."
