                          A nice venue, but however it is a bit noisy on our visit. We are people who dine out often, and found Number 1 overpriced. Although I would recommend to others, I would emphasise that it isnt value for money.

                          Excellent food from a varied menu. Really loved the gin infused mackerel starter. The lamb was beautifully cooked pink and tender. All washed down with a lovely South African Red Happy Days

                          The food was average at best and overpriced. The staff were more interested in themselves that the customers, apart from one poor girl who appeared to do all the work. We even had to ask for the bill three times !!. I would not recommend this place at all.

                          The special ribeye steak was overcooked and small. I asked for medium and was very well done. For £28 it was not worth it. The waitor provided a free glass of wine as a result of the complaint I made. The service from the waitor excellent, very professional and friendly.

                          It's not often,if ever that you could describe a restaurant or eaterie as being just about perfect, however No 1 is in this class. My wife and I ate there yesterday (New Year's Eve) and as with every other time we've eaten there we left raving about everything. The food was outstanding, stunning. The Service is absolutely spot on, incredibly attentive and personable staff. The owner(I never seem to catch her name) makes you feel like you're being welcomed back to place that's yours. She really is a huge asset to this place,and her hospitality is evident in her staff too. This is by a mile our favourite restaurant in Aberdeen. I can't offer enough praise. Thanks.

                          The food in Number 1 is always of the highest quality with locally sourced ingredients and fantastic twists on Scottish classics on the menu. I’ve eaten in here many times and never hesitate to book again or recommend it to others. The prices are very reasonable and the service is superb, it’s attentive without being over the top and the staff are always very friendly. As a Coeliac I also have to say the options for Gluten Free (and other intolerances) are incredibly well catered for and almost any dish can be adapted to suit if needed. I cannot recommend Number 1 highly enough.

                          Enjoyed the meal but thought it was overpriced. Steak at £35 with a small portion of veg and chips. Sauce was extra £4. Thought this should have been part of the meal. Also the plates were very scratchy. Every time my fork touched the plate it squeaked. My partners food was also expensive for basically a chicken sandwich. Chicken was very dry and lacking in sauce.

                          Fantastic lunch - food and service both excellent. A bit noisy but it was busy with Christmas lunches and there were a few large groups so understandable! We weren't rushed out and sat eating and drinking well into the afternoon. Will definitely be back.
