    Spent a very enjoyable Sunday evening here with excellent service. The food had a couple of hiccups which lost it a star in that the venison was overcooked and the grapes with the delicious cheeseboard were well passed their sell by. However if we were in the area we would probably give it another try

    The Stockbridge Restaurant is slightly off the beaten track and hidden down a flight of stone steps. As we walked through the door you are greeted with a warm welcome, we had entered a world that we thought had disappeared. The cosy atmosphere is remenicent of the last century. The service is extremely efficient and at the same time friendly and personal. We found chosing from the menu difficult as there were so many thiings we would like to have tried. In the end we chose pigeon and cod for starters, followed by chicken and sea bass. We enjoyed every one of these. We felt that we had had a great evening while at the same time getting value for our money.

  • Great food, two sittings a pain

    Dined on 19/9/2014
    Food was excellent and the wine very reasonably priced. The only problem we had was being told that we had to finish by 8.20 (booking was 6.30) and then, because of slow service, being rushed at the last minute. In fairness, after complaining about teh attitude given that it had not been us that was slow, the staff retrieved themselves very successfully - although it cost the restaurant two deseerts and two coffees. Two sittings are fine, we all understand that restaurants have to make money, but it is incumbent on teh restaurant to see that the first sitting is served in timely fashion.

    We were lucky to reserve a table the same day. Nice ambience, We had the set menu. Well cooked tasty quality food and artistically presented. Service was just right. So glad to be back again. Not suitable for disabled because it is at the lower ground floor. Overall the best meal we had for a while, excellent all round couldn't fault the place!

    Booked to eat after work at 7pm. It is in the basement some buildings in St. Stephen Street, very amazing from the outside. Inside it is wonderful, very atmospheric and stylish, extravagant ambience. The menu has some unusual items on it, which I choose and was very pleasantly surprised how tender and delicious the meats were. I felt like treating my self and with the help of the staff I felt very special. A wonderful experience. It is very good value for money and ideal for romance and celebrations, it is a special restaurant for those special occasions. Would definitely recommend.

    I always enjoy not only the food at Stockbridge but the little extras they offer as part of the meal such as the lovely bread, amuse bouche and lovely hand made chocolates with coffee. The 2-3 course special menu on weekdays is exceptional value which in some ways is a pity as the á la carte looks great but the special menu is such good value I am always tempted back to it. The staff are always attentive, the food quality and detail of presentation is great and I recommend it to anyone who wants to have an enjoyable meal out.

    This restaurant came highly recommended by family and friends but disappointed 3 out of our 4 diners on the night. One left fully satisfied, three left wondering if it was just poor food choices [a la carte] on the night. The table was too small. The service was attentive. For what was offered the prices were not commensurate with the food quality and the presentation. Hopefully it was just a bad night as more of our family are attending there this weekend! Not a patch on the Galvin Brasserie where we dined the previous evening for food, presentation and service. We'll give it another go in a couple of months in the hope that 'our night' was just a 'one off.'

    We booked this restaurant for our wedding anniversary after a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed. We dined on a Sunday from the set menu, with the option of bring your own wine @ £4 corkage. Set menu choices were great and portions were surprisingly large. Food was good quality and well presented. Staff were very attentive and restaurant very cosy! You will probably need to book as it's quite a small seating area. Will be returning on our next trip to Edinburgh. Thanks to all at Stockbridge for making our wedding anniversary dinner so special.

    The ambience was good, with a cosy, relaxed feel. The waitress was polite, and we got our food promptly. The food we had here was good, but not perfect. The pigeon starter and duck main were great, as was the bread and the complimentary appetiser. The rabbit starter and lamb main were good, but the fat had not been rendered out of the lamb rack, making it difficult to eat and slightly unappetising. The rabbit was very nice, but was obviously farmed, so again not quite as good as it could have been. The lamb and rabbit were still good, but they didn't quite feel worth the price or up to the standard of the other dishes. We had a nice evening, and I'd happily go back, but maybe for a lunchtime when it isn't quite so expensive.

    We happened upon this restaurant and did not realise as it was a Sunday there was a special menu. It was also BYOB. The atmosphere and location was really special. Small but perfectly formed you could say, with a great menu and very attentive staff. All in all a bit of a find in Stockbridge ...... We will return. The rabbit starter was particularly nice and the duck was really well presented - med rare as it should be....

    The food and service were fantastic, but I kind of knew they would be. Very attentive, but not over powering and made to feel very welcome. The food was also a treat with a great variety and fantasic quality. I particularly enjoyed my rabbit starter and the duck was fantastically cooked and presented. Well worth a trip for a special occasion and also if you fancy a little treat.

    Looking for a place to catch up with relatives after we had travelled from Australia I settled on this restaurant. Booking online was a breeze and confirmation was emailed. Arriving early before opening time didn't bother the staff, we were greeted by friendly smiles and offered a choice of tables. The menu was simple with only 1/2 dozen choices on appetizer and main course, but each choice was tempting. Settling on the bass I was impressed with the flavour (which was to die for) and combination of chorizo, sausage, potato and beetroot. We were given fresh bread and orderves which was a surprise but went well with our meal, simple but nice touch. Thanks for a lovely start to a great evening in Stockbridge.

    My friend and I chose this restaurant because it had good food reviews, was within walking distance of where we were staying in Edinburgh and it was open on Sunday evening. An added bonus was that we could take our own special bottle of wine (only available on a Sunday). We were not disappointed. Everything was perfect. Definitely a must for anyone visiting Stockbridge.
