The overall rating is really low because I emailed the restaurant directly to make a complaint and received nothing back at all. Won’t ever be going here again with that kind of service. Extremely poor to say the least

I went with my friend and my dog for Badgers Brunch. I have been a couple of times before - some of the staff remembered me which made me feel quite special, they also made a fuss of the dog which made us feel incredibly welcome. The food was tasty as ever and the drinks were fabulous. A great experience all round. Well done badger and co, keep up the great work!

Very nice, relaxed atmosphere on an early Thursday evening.
Good service. Nice drinks.
Only had time for one course but it was very good and would definitely return again.

Good food but from a generational perspective I fail to see the need for music in a good restaurant - unless it’s for the staff- who were courteous and efficient.

We visited Badger & Co for our wedding anniversary. On our booking we mentioned it was a special occasion and they didn’t disappoint. As soon as we sat down we were given 2 complimentary glasses of processo. Also the bottle of wine we wanted was not available so the manager said he would give us any other bottle for the same price. Imagine our delight when we got the bill and the bottle was also complimentary. The food was excellent. Fresh, imaginative food in a lovely setting. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Badger & Co for making our evening so special

Pleasant staff bit had to remind them we had been waiting nearly 30 minutes for our drinks. They were rushed off their feet. My wife’s fish was over cooked and then almost raw so we had free deserts to enjoy..

Nice place and welcome. Unfortunately food was a huge disappointment. Fish and chips looked like a child’s portion. Burger overdone.
Plates looked empty and wholly underwhelming when they arrived and didn’t improve.
Shame as nice place.

The service was quite slow and we had to remind the waiting staff several times to serve us. It was hard to get their attention. In the end we left rather than have a post dinner drink because of this. That said, the food was tasty - we had a discount code. Had we paid full price though I would say it was overpriced for what it was.

We ate here the last time we were in Edinburgh and loved it, but this time we were disappointed - service was slow, food was mediocre and it was very loud. It was a rugby night which makes us probably think about returning to give it a chance again.

I have been to Badger &Co and had lovely meals this time it was very disappointing. I expected a 2 course lunch as it said on the website but that had stopped, what we did order my fish and chips, the fish was okay but the chips were terrible dry and burnt, my friend also was unable to eat her chips and her hamburger was no better, but they did take her meal off the bill. Such a shame as it is a nice place and could be so much better.

Nice surroundings, good service and a very nice meal. We each had 3 courses, coffee and 3 bottles of wine between four of us. No other drinks. The bill was £55 per head which we felt was good value in the centre of Edinburgh. Despite the rugby being on the service was efficent and polite throughout.

Service was excellent, food was excellent.
Sadly the extensive drinks menu offers no low alcohol drinks or zero alcohol cocktails to treat your other half who is unable to drink. Only soft drinks available.
A trick missed i think Badger
