Our first floor restaurant can be found in The Rutland Hotel at Edinburgh’s West End and boasts enviable views of Edinburgh Castle. We are open from 12pm for lunch and 5pm for dinner serving menus created by our award-winning head chef John Rutter

The food was incredible, both steaks cooked and seasoned to perfection.
The only downside was that we were sat next to a large table of women that were very loud and ruined the vibe for me and my partner. He is in the RAF and will be away on service over Christmas and the next three months so this weekend was our weekend to enjoy each others company before he leaves and therefore it was a bit of a disappointment that we couldn’t hear each other over these women. But this I don’t fault the restaurant for.
Because of the large table service was really slow on our table. once our food had arrived I asked for some mayo for the chips, this didn’t arrive so ten minutes I asked again, by the time it turned up we were basically done with our meals so a bit of a disappointment, but again a fault you can see past for the the food.

Good overall standard for a steak in comparison to other steakhouses in Edinburgh but there are far better ones around. Such a small table for the porterhouse that they had to elevate it in the air and balance it.

We used to come to Kyloe regularly but haven't been for about 2 years. On the basis of this visit things are not as good as they were. There are far fewer rare breeds and interesting cuts on the menu and their excellent onion rings are no more. The service, whilst friendly and reasonably knowledgeable felt quite rushed and they do seem to be squeezing more tables into the space than they used to which makes the restaurant very loud.
The steaks were good rather than excellent and mine was cooked very unevenly, medium at the edges and frankly raw in the middle. Bernaise sauce was cold, which is fine, but when I asked I was told this is how chef likes it. Chef was not the one eating or paying for the meal as far as I can see.
At the end of the meal we were asked where we were from. The waiter was surprised to hear we are from Edinburgh and said most of the customers are now tourists. I suspect locals now go elsewhere...

We booked Kyloe for the steak experience which didn't disappoint however our experience was marred by the fact that the lighting was so poor it was difficult to read the menu and although our server was charming she had an accent that was difficult to follow when she was describing the steak cut of the week in as much I felt embarrassed to have to keep asking her to repeat things.
A diner on another table was also off-putting as he spent the first 10 mins taking selfies every few seconds although he was with either his wife or girlfriend.

City break weekend from London. Took my girlfriend to a highly rated traditional Scottish steak restaurant for her birthday and it did not disappoint!
Outstanding service! Very knowledgable not just about the cuts of steak but the supplier also. Cooked to perfection and the sides were just as impressive.
Would definitely recommend to anybody going to Edinburgh!!

Where to start! We decided to try Kyloe after reading the fabulous reviews and it did not disappoint. It's a beautiful space and the service was excellent. Before ordering, our very knowledgeable and attentive waitress brought over a board of meat cuts to explain them to us and help us decide (we were a bit clueless!). We ended up sharing a sirloin on the bone that was cooked to perfection - juicy, tender, just delicious. The appetiser (tartare) and beef dripping chips were also outstanding. Definitely, recommended, we'll be back again!

Although I gave very little notice of the booking we were welcomed and directed to a lounge area to relax when the table was ready and on time the service was really good the staff could not do enough for us and the food was really good the only minus was only one vegetarian choice but the staff assured our friend could mix the salad side apart from that everyone really enjoyed the food especailly the chunky chips

The place is beautiful and the staff are lovely. However the food is just average. We got the beef wellington meal for two and the steak was over cooked and had a flame grilled taste that didn’t compliment the Wellington at all. The drinks were nice but also expensive.

Great atmosphere, a good break from the pub arena. But they were very busy and the time between courses was quite lengthy. We probably would have ordered another round of drinks, but no one came back to the table.

Brilliant dining experience. Knowledgable and kind staff that make you feel comfortable and welcome. I couldn't fault them, even if i wanted to as they're so charming you'd not want to be served by anyone else.

The food was outstanding. I've never had a better steak dinner from the food that was used to make the dinner to the way it was prepared and served. I'm a massive smoked salmon fan and what this restaurant serves is better than I've ever had before, and i come from a part of the world that prides itself on its great fish dishes.

Very special thanks to the tall blonde man with the tattoo on the underside of his right forearm. Always appeared when you needed him for something for the table or ask a question, had answers and indepth opinions for anything. Really made the night a lovely one for myself and my girlfriend. Thank you very much and I'm very sorry i didn't even get your name.

When i go back to Edinburgh, i would absolutely be looking to book a table here. No question.
