One Square Restaurant
Overall a lovely restaurant with excellent food, drink and view of the Castle. I especially like the loyalty to local produce such as the seafood and meats. Also, as it was my girlfriends birthday, they brought out some fruits and chocolates on a plate without me knowing - which was a lovely surprise! The only downside I have is the value of the Irish Coffees. With both of us very full after our main we decided to finish with an Irish coffee which to our surprise cost £13...each... While a desert cost £8-10.
A very good lunch although we had to wait a while for our first course.
We love dining in this Restaurant and especially like the Sunday buffet. Superb cuisine and good service.
A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon and a great location if you have guests visiting from another country, like we did. The Castle views, traditional food and lovely Jazz music was great. They now have a kids club that children from age 3+ can go play at. The young gentleman serving the roasts (sirloin or pork belly) was very helpful in advising that the smaller children could have chicken or salmon cooked for them if they didn't want the pork/beef. He also advised that a 'normal' gravy could be given to the children if the red wine jus (which I had and was delicious) was too much for the kids. Will be going back!
Not bad, just not good.
I was recommended the beef short rib but it was very very dry, either over cooked, over reheated (most likely) or sat under hot lights for too long (not likely as the mains came when I was at the toilet so they served when they wanted). That said, the seafood starter was very good but it is the main that counts so I can’t recommend.
This restaurant is very well organized and unusually for an Edinburgh venue peaceful -- it is quite busy at lunch time but the service is excellent. The menu is interesting and changes frequently but best of all the food is exceptional and beautifully served.
Excellent pre-theatre meal. Food was perfect and the service was very good indeed.
This was our first visit to ONE SQUARE. From arriving until leaving was a very pleasant experience. The staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. The service and food we had was top notch and we will have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to our family and friends.
Sunday lunch with the parents. Lots of choice for food and very tasty. Personally the jazz band were a bit intrusive but then I’m not a massive fan
Great selection of gin which is their specialty. While the menu selection is not expansive the quality of the menu items is great.
Fantastic menu, good ambiance. Very attentive staff. Just right.
Booked the restaurant for pre theatre dinner due to excellent location; altogether very good, could not fault the food, service or surroundings. Very pleasant staff only added to our visit. More than happy to return on next visit to Edinburgh.
One Square consistently delivers great service and thoughtful, delicious menus.
Super steaks great atmosphere and a restaurant I will be back to
Bonne cuisine, bonne présentation, service sympa. Une bonne soirée
Excellent staff saved the day! We were very badly let down by Open Table!! Your system allowed us to make a booking for Sunday lunch the day before, but when we arrived the restaurant said they had been fully booked for weeks. Fortunately the very helpful and attentive staff managed to find a space for us. A superb Sunday buffet style lunch followed. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. However, would definitely NOT RECOMMEND booking with Open Table!!
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal there. It was very busy as it was a Saturday in the run-up to Christmas, but no complaints.
Nice burger, but not special. Good service, pleasnt atmosphere. Annoyed by automatic addition of service charge (only 2 people) - service is the job. Would have given a larger tip than the service charge had this not already been added. As it was we didn't leave anything extra.
I rarely dine at hotel restaurants for dinner. Glad I made the exception this time. Mussels were very well prepared and presented and the Cod was truly excellent
Mussels and steak were really good but not sure about the crisps with the steak, why not chips?! Weird! Overall the service and standard of food was very good, not one plate left with anything on it. I would definitely go again.
This was a graduation celebration and the new graduate was presented with a decorated dessert plate congratulating him on his achievement. An unexpected and very nice touch. The food was lovely and the staff were very welcoming.
Terrible service. Had to send steak back because it was over cooked.
Great food with perfect service on n a relaxed atmosphere.
Sunday buffet lunch is excellent: lots of courses, lots of choice, all delicious and well-presented.
The experience here is akin to dining in a hotel lobby, which isn't that for the reality. We were squeezed into a corner next to the waiter's terminal. This was despite other tables in the centre being empty. This added to the lack of atmosphere. The food was good, if poor value, service was ok. I wouldn't return.
Good. Good food. Very nice ppl. nice atmosphere. not to much money
A very good place to eat. Food and service were both excellent.
Great food, good service and relaxed atmosphere. I’m going back again soon!
Hotel restaurant with ambitious, but unrealized, menu. Not inexpensive. Better food for same pricing in the area. Service staff were gracious and considerate.
Food was excellent, the sirloin was especially good. Had to wait 20 minutes for a drink and service was painfully slow throughout the meal.
Fantastic. Service amazing. Food delicious. Wheelchair and child friendly.
Great food, with excellent recommendations from Ewa.
Lovely meal, knowledgeable staff and a nice view of the castle
First time for afternoon tea with my friend and we were made to feel very special. Will definitely be back in the future beautiful surroundings and excellent customer service with delicate sweets and savouries that were scrumptious. The beautiful tea selection was served just right. Overall it was a great experience. Highly recommended.
Wanted a nice place for a surprise 70th dinner for my Dad and this was just the job. Great view of the castle, nice table for the six of us and really good food from a good choice on the menu. It's a good mix of being in a hotel and all that brings with it but also being slightly separate and a walk in place. Would recommend!
The monkfish I had for my main was absolutely superb
Food and Service outstanding, would definitely go back...
Good was wonderful. I took my wife there for our anniversary. She is a great cook, and was hugely impressed. We agreed that the lamb was the best either of us had ever tasted. There is lots of space so it's not noisy. The decor is as elegant as you might expect from an up market hotel.
Best steak I have had in a long time, my wife loves the seafood and shellfish selection, all topped off with a great selection of wines.
My Husband and I went to One Square for dinner and a special night out and it did not disappoint! The food was delicious and good value for the quality received. The restaurant has great views out to Usher Hall and the castle. Service was very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We finished up the evening with drinks in the swanky gin bar. It is well worth a visit and we will definitely be back!
