    AWB is one of my favourite restaurants in Edinburgh & does a great job of making amazing food. One thing I noticed having been there a few times over the past few months is that the dish choices were much the same. Which given the limited menu, means that it feels like a one trick pony - which I know it isn't.

    The food was amazing. We ate from the seasonal lunch menu and it was wonderful. The chicken was the best I've ever tasted. We were seated upstairs and our server was lovely. Walking past a line of servers at the pass was very strange and felt old fashioned. The toilets needed a clean, there was no soap in the dispenser.

    I recommended the restaurant to a visiting friend, everything was as I have come to expect from this venue, nice atmosphere, friendly welcome from all staff, great service and good quality food. As is to be expected these days the prices have risen but are still good, everything was great, my only one constructive comment would be the portion size, the portions were smaller that I expected, I had only just said that portions there are good - not too much and not to little, just perfect... on this occasion I was less than satisfied as the portions seemed a little too small...

    An excellent meal. The Carpaccio of beef starter was delicious and the salmon pastrami with crowdie was a genius combination. The cod was cooked to perfection. The 12 hour cooked beef was beautifully tender - could have done with a bit more jus or other liquid to accompany it. The pistachio and olive oil cake with apricot sorbet was also a delight and the selection of cheeses on the cheese board was perfect - but nobody ever gives you enough oatcakes! Our waitress was extremely pleasant. Our only criticism is that the cocktail selection is a bit restricted. I had the “Orange you glad I’m your dad” cocktail which was very good. My wife had the “Wee Bee Munro” which was not to her (or my) taste, the honey was quite overwhelming in the overall flavour.

    Food was great , service was attentive without been intrusive and a really good selection of wines to choose from. Only quibble £40 for 8 oz fillet steak a bit on the pricy side, even with the cost of living going up.

    It was absolutely amazing and just what we needed for our stay in Edinburgh. Everything was amazing from the food to the service We will definitely come again The only comment I would have is that the chocolate dessert could’ve had a bit more orange flavour to it But that’s just may being picky I would recommend this restaurant to anyone . We also ate at the Done which was great too

    Our meals were superb and we both thoroughly enjoyed them. The table service was exemplary. The only issue I had was that our table was 'through the back' and, although the furnishings, place settings etc were great, the room itself was dark and kind of dull, with no outlook at all where we sat (in the back corner). However, it didn't spoil our visit and I'm pleased that we have found a great venue in the centre of the city.

    Booked this based on travel book and online reviews prior to departing the US. We were not disappointed. Our only complaint is that there was a very load party sitting near by but it was much more pleasant once they finally left. Service was great, our server couldn't have been more attentive and helpful. I had a cocktail which I loved and when we asked if they would be willing to share the receipe, he said absolutely and provided a written note with the ingredients and measurements before we left. Food was outstanding. When my husband commented after our meal that he hadn't realized that corn was such a prominent ingredient in the dish and that he hadn't eaten it because he isn't a fan of corn, our waiter offered to bring him some homemade chips. We said no need but he did anyway and they were delicious!!! Highly recommend this if you are in Edinburgh!

    We went sat lunchtime and were put in a booth at the front away from the rest of the restaurant. Service was nice. Food was mixed. We ate from the fixed menu. Haggis starter and chicken main very good. Smoked haddock mousse very bland and the cheeseboard wasn’t good. Cheese had been in the fridge- not great for serving brie.
