    Great food - we had a sharing starter of homemade nachos and then a course each with the 15% discount. Very reasonable pricing, exciting flavours on classic meals.

    I won't be attending here again. We waited a good 15 minutes for a drink and we had to ask someone to take our good order. We then waited long enough for our bill. Certainly not worth it

    A fun, lively place to eat in town before heading out. The staff are very attentive without being annoying. The food was tasty and good value. Nice to see portion sizes that are filling yet not too much, just right. Food served in quirky way, very cute. Only wish the chilli beef wrap was more chilli like!

    The food was lovely and service was excellent especially the promptness and attention. The only downside is the volume of the music. At times it can be hard to hear what others were saying. Generally, when people go out to eat they want to talk and loud music makes this a bit more difficult. The time of our meal was 5pm - I could understand it maybe getting a bit louder later on in the evening.

    We booked for a party of 4 for a pre-show meal, and at the last minute we added 1 person to the booking. Luckily this was no problem to the staff and they gave us a larger table. The Open Table deal included 15% off the food bill and a free cocktail for each person. Given that the cocktails are £7.50, this alone is a very good deal. The food was very good, typical american/international fare. Beware that the Jalepeno poppers are not for the faint hearted. The staff were very friendly and could not have done any more for us. I would recommend Sygn to anyone, but do be aware that the music does get louder as the evening goes on.

    I've been going to Sygn for a few years, but it had been 18 months since I was last there. The menu has changed quite a bit, and unfortunately I think it's a change for the worse - the choice wasn't as good as it used to be, and the standard of the food was mediocre at best. However, it can't really be beaten for value, and it is a good place to go with a group. The service wasn't great - we were served by a couple of slightly surly girls, one of whom kept trying to up-sell, which I think is quite off-putting. We were next to a very rowdy table, and it would have been nice if someone had asked them to keep it down. I probably will be back because it is good value and location, but I won't be recommending it.

    Went to Sygn on the 15% off and a free cocktail offer. Great value for money and a delicious cocktail served by an excellent guy. We ordered a glass of white wine with our meal which was not chilled but it was no problem for him to change it for a colder one, Total bill £36.

    This was a great bargain as we had an offer for a free cocktail and 15% off our bill. Our cocktails were very good, and left us wanting more! The food was pretty good, but not particularly exciting - pizza and a Toulouse sausage dog. Good French fries.

    Booked a table through top table for me and 5 friends. Couldn't fault anything, the food was really tasty, amazing value for money, I could have sat and had cocktails there all night they were really nice and such a good variety too! The music was slightly too loud for dining but think this was mabey as a Saturday night and people out drinking at the bar! Me and the rest of my party were really impressed and will definitely return! Thank you!

    We visited Sygn on a busy Saturday afternoon. Despite being only 1pm the atmosphere inside was already starting to feel like the lively Saturday night "warm up" - the noise of 2 large parties nearby was almost deafening. If a quiet dining experience is what you're after I feel a midweek visit here might be better suited. We took advantage of the 15% off food offer with free cocktail and my party of 3 were unanimously impressed with the quality and value for money. Food and drink were absolutely delicious and small table extras all very stylishly presented. Staff (although clearly busy) were helpful, friendly and attentive. In summary - an enjoyable trip to a popular place.

    Sygn was always good. Good food, good music and a good crowd. Unfortunately this time, it looks as though they need to spend some money on it. Food was ok! More pub grub than before. free cocktail and 15% saved the night. Toilets disgusting!!!! We also sat with our coats on due to being sat near the door. Music was good once the place emptied out, but when it was busy, all we could hear was the base, thumping and thumping. Shame really as the playlist was good. They need to sort out their sound system. Probably will not go again. Shame as this used to be a favourite.

    The food at sygn was delicious and it is very nice inside, however it was extremly noisy and it just got louder and louder as our meal went on! It was full of noisy men who were all standing at the bar which is situated right at the front door. The restaurant isn't very big at all so there was no where we could move to. Me and my friends had to shout across the table to each other. I would recommend this restaurant if u were maybe going during the week or possibly during the day at the weekend as it could be quieter but when me and my friends went on a saturday night it was far too noisy for a quiet meal!

    Booked offer of 15% discount on food and complimentary cocktail.as a catch up meal with friends. The bar and restaurant were a typical busy saturday night. We managed to get a corner table which meant we were not affected by the number of people standing in ba area or the movement between tables. This made it much more comfortable. Despite there didn't seem to be a lot of staff dealing with the table service we still managed to get prompt service for most of evening though did become more difficult toward later evening (after 9pm). The staff were very courteous and efficient. The food was good quality and decent sized portions and cooked to order reaching table hot and fresh . Disadvantage the music volume does make it difficult to chat

    Had a 15% food discount deal with complimentary cocktail at 7pm on a Friday. Welcome and service was very good. Food was excellent and well presented. We had starters of haggis pakora and bread with oil. Both were great. We both had burgers which were delicious for our mains. Only 2 minor issues to find fault with. The music was far too loud - had to shout to hear each other. There had obviously been quite crowd in after work and the ladies toilets were a bit messy. Minor issues though and we will go back.

    Sygn was good, but we didn't realise it was predominantly for young kids and we found the noise a bit much all through the meal. We would not recommend it for older folk wanting to talk. However, the staff were lovely and the food ok but mainly pizza burger type food. We had value for money with a free cocktail and 15 per cent off.

    I met my sister and friend there on Friday night at 6.30, it was busy but had a good atmosphere. After we sat at our table for about 10 mins thats when it hit you that you couldn't talk only shout to each other. When the waitress came to serve us she couldn't hear us and we couldn't hear her. Sorry couldn't wait to eat my meal and get out of there. Food and service very good.

The atmosphere has a great buzz, lots of laughter and kicked off the beginning to our great night! Waitress' float around, ALWAYS on hand, smiling and so confident. Casually dressed and very helpful. Now the food, flawless! It's basic snack like meals, but they are deluscoys. This place is perfect for a dinner before a night out, a catch up with friends or just a refreshing cocktail! I loved it!

    The food was amazing a really good value, everyone in my party had only good things to say about their meal. The place was clean and the staff welcoming. The only negative I would say was that there didn't seem to be enough staff working especially when it got very busy there seemed to be only one waitress serving the whole place. Apart from that I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Sygn is fine. Not my favourite place but fine. Possibly the right place for young trendy clientele. My only real complaint was the loud music that blared out throughout our visit. This made conversation difficult and thereby reduced some of the pleasure. Why do public places think they have the right to impose their or their staff's taste on others?

    Booked a table for 8 people, service was awful (slow, inattentive, staff didn't know which drinks were available, order was wrong but after waiting so long we accepted it, had to reuse the cutlery from our starts for our main course), food was ok but not great and we never got the free drink that was part of the deal when we booked it despite asking twice. Tables next to the window have a draft from the cold which didn't help.

    Unlike my first visit (for food) to Sygn Bar some years back this experience was a lot better. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was well presented and tasted great. Front door was left open making some areas of the venue a bit cold but apart from that minor detail well worth a visit. They also do fantastic cocktails!

    Had a very enjoyable evening at Sygn; the online deal of 15% off food & free cocktail is amazing value. The food is presented in a fun way: Burgers served in mini wooden crates with red & white checked paper and ketchup served in mini kilner jars! Scampi starter was served in a deep fry style basket lined with brown paper and Haggis Pakora was served in a mini pail lined with brown paper. Everything was piping hot and tasted lovely. The cocktails are amazing; really different to the normal 'classic' range of cocktails; there are boozy milk shakes and a big choice of cocktails seemingly served in unusual vessels, such as Mango Daquiri served in a totem pole! There was a DJ playing and the atmosphere was very laid back. Well worth a visit.

    Went for a Thursday night dinner with 2 friends on the toptable deal offering 15% off food and a complimentary cocktail. The choice of 4 cocktails was good & our drinks order was taken & delivered quickly which is always good. Food very reasonably priced - this is a real draw. Took a while to come however & I prefer their burgers to the pizza I ordered as the toppings on the lamb pizza were a little sparse. Music bit loud for a place where most people were eating & the 15% wasn't deducted from our bill but it was so reasonable we just paid i without querying it.

    We were visiting Edinburgh for the last weekend of the Fringe Festival. We had tickets to an 8:00 pm show and looked for dinner options close to the venue. Sygn was in a great location, tucked away from crowded George Street. The Toptable deal was two free cocktails and 15% off the total check. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and cocktails. Great value and we would return.

    I was arranging a team night out during the festival and I was struggling to book a table for 20 people. Sygn offered me their private dining room for no extra cost which was excellent. Menu is good, instead of having numerous dishes the menu has 4 main categories burgers, dogs, pizzas, wraps which meant you weren't sitting around waiting for meals to be served. I'd been to Sygn before and ill certainly be going back
