The menu has considerably diminished in terms of selection. There used to be much for choice here.

Ate from the set lunch menu which was excellent value. We had Fish Nd Chips and it was very good. Nice crisp batter and very nice chips. Will definitely return.

We had a meal on friday which was lovely the only reason i have given 3 stars as 3 of the fish dishes we would of chose were not availale so we had the steak which was lovely but the peppercorn sauce wasn’t nice.
Overall though was really nice but very noisy when you were eating but i know its a bar!

Excellent meal, but on the Sunday night it was very quiet, only 3 tables including us when we got there. So difficult to judge another night. Staff excellent

I booked through open table and was surprised on arrival at the restaurant that they were unaware of the booking. The restaurant was quiet so we were quickly seated. Service was good, pleasant manner, checked we had everything. Food was disappointing. Small portion of fish looked lost on plate. Although menu descriptions seemed to indicate plates had veg, chips etc on plate, quantities were limited. Mains need additional sides. Costly pub food.

I like tha Angel Share as a bar, we have drank in here many times and have always been very happy so I decided to try an evening meal instead. We had a booking and the waitress took us to our table however that's where the service ended. We had no menus, no drinks order was taken and after 20 minutes of sitting without being served we decided to leave ond go elsewhere. Its a real shame as I have often seen people enjoying food so I assume it is good.
Possibly just an oversight but there were plenty of staff behind the bar on so not sure what went wrong.

A 'Full Scottish Breakfast" cannot be turned down, can it? Certainly not if it I should always as good as this one. Excellent all round - I would have liked 23 seconds more on my poached egg, but that is being very picky indeed.

Have used Angels Share for food and drinks for a number of years and have always found the food to be good value for money and service to be warm and friendly.
That said, over the past few months the service in particular has deteriorated- seemingly linked to staff changes - and that, combined with increased restrictions applied to their Loyalty Card Scheme, has made this much less of a “go-to” venue than it once was.

They said on arrival that they had no record of our booking. After showing them your confirmation they fitted us in. Food and service were mediocre. We have been to Angels Share many times, this visit was very disappointing. They seem to have gone downhill

We were a party of 4 who all thoroughly enjoyed our food and evening. Only negative of the evening was the rudeness of one of the servers. It's a bit of a long story however the restaurant dealt with the incident quickly and discreetly and this certainly wouldn't put any of us off from returning. Full marks for the food and all bar one of the servers.

I was very disappointed with my latest visit to Angels Share given it has been a firm favourite for a long time.

Staff did not have the booking (booked via OpenTable)
Staff had to be reminded about the drinks order
The food was extremely poor (for a Sunday Roast with all the trimmings) - a huge chunk of meet, 1 yorkshire pudding and a serving of green beans!
Food was lukewarm

The general ambience was very quiet and having brought family from Northern Ireland based on previous experience we were absolutely embarrassed by the quality of food and service. We paid the bill out of sheer embarrassment and wishing not to make a fuss in front of family members whom we had not seen for a long time. We will not be back.

Mediocre from start to finish. Don’t order the Mussels as a starter, you get 12. Chicken risotto completely lacking any taste. To top it off, some robbed our umbrella off the back of my chair 😂. Stick to being a bar, you’ve got the food all wrong.

Bellissimo locale dove si puo' mangiare,ma anche bere birra o altro in compagnia.La ragazza che ci ha servito è stata molto gentile e paziente per il nostro inglese non molto ferrato,ma ci siamo capiti molto bene.Cibo di alta qualità e preparazione molto competente,tutto delizioso.Siamo rimasti pienamente soddisfatti.

Disappointing! Having eaten many times at the Angels Share the 'festive menu' very limited in choice, the head front of house staff was rude and very unhelpful when asked to hang up our extremely wet coats. Will maybe return after the Christmas season, meanwhile regrettably will choose another venue for our annual Christmas Eve lunch.

As you see from all my previous reviews I've never been disappointed until this visit. Brought 6 friends for a meal before a show and really disappointed in service provided.
Meals arrived asked for salt and various sauces. After 10 mins I wemt to find out where the salt etc was. Eventually a girl came , I explained I was disappointed as by now most of us were half way through our meals. She was just rude !
Another waitress saved the day as without her input, after years of coming here, I said I would never be back. Service needs sorted out

Nice lounge to sit in for meal and drink - quiet but nice ambience.
Staff were very polite and service great.
Food was ok but we were not overly impressed by food on night - salmon in a bowl of coconut broth.

More a bar than a restaurant and extremely busy on a Friday early evening. Staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food, despite a minimal menu, was above average ......worth a visit if you don't mind the noisy background

Friday evening 5:00 pm prior to theatre visit.
Option was to sit in bar at small table with huge amount of through traffic to what I took to be kitchen or sit in quieter area and vacate by 6;30 -chose 6:30 option. Fine other than as we discovered we had picked an evening when relaxed area (i.e. dinning room / hotel lounge /hotel reception) was required to be cleared of most furniture and two long tables to be installed to accommodate 24 or so pre booked golfers staying at hotel -we were obviously in the way and staff now formed into 2 factions (those in our part of premises who with studious determination continued to remove 80% of tables and chairs around us and install new longer tables) actively ignoring eye contact and becoming more surly as 6:30approached. Staff from separate room where bar was located who were tasked to serve us (the lady in charge of front of house is only member of staff who deserves any credit -dealing professionally and with good grace a situation not of her making). Food (lamb rump) was poor ,wine (bottle of merlot excellent) ,service (see aforementioned), what learnt -this is not a Restaurant but a bar selling food -Caveat Emptor.

We have visited Angel share 3 times with different friends in the last 6 weeks and we have never been disappointed. A cheery friendly place with great food and drink. Attentive staff are only to willing to assist and we believe you get true value for money unlike some establishments in Edinburgh . I have recommended it to a lot of our friends and they all agree. This will always be our place to eat whenever we come into the city for a night out . Thank you Angel share.
