    We were warmly welcomed and directed to our table. Our waitress was relatively quick to get the first drinks in, however after that the wait times increased. The food was good but not brilliant, so not really reflective of the price. Overall a good experience and there was a warm ambience.

    Starters and drinks were tasty and arrived in a timely manner. Then everything changed. It took almost an hour for our entrees to arrive. We were seated next to the open kitchen and the cooks did not appear to be busy. The restaurant wasn’t even half full either. We ordered fish and chips which were tasteless and full of bones. We also ordered burgers which were over done and disappointing. We’ve had some of most memorable meals at Gordon Ramsay restaurants. However, this wasn’t one of them. There are lots of much better options in Edinburgh.

    Unfortunately pork belly had to be sent back as dry and overcooked, the way the staff dealt with it was excellent, offering to replace all of our meals (4 of us), to which we declined and only had the 2 pork belly meals replaced, they also took them off the bill. Rest of the food was delicious, staff very attentive and friendly

    Not a very good experience.First off, there were 5 of the main course items that were not available (Sunday Roast, Rib Eye, Curry, Pork belly and the Beef Wellington) Then there were two cocktails on the Gordon Ramsay gin list that were also not available. When our food arrived, some of it was cold and the knife I was provided for my steak wasn’t sharp enough to cut with. The bathrooms were not very clean and overall just not an impressive evening. At £385 for 4 people, we could have had much better elsewhere. Unfortunate, as we recently ate at Gordon Ramsays 1890 in London and it was spectacular so we had much higher expectations at Bread Street.

    Bad news: They were out of Beef Wellington...at a Gordon Ramsay restaurant. NO BEEF WELLINGTON. (I could just hear him screaming at the kitchen in my head.) The service was quite slow; we longingly stared at our drinks waiting at the end of the bar for what felt like ages. When said drinks arrived, they were all ice and gone within a few yummy sips. It was Father's Day, so I have some grace for slower service on a holiday. Good news: The Steak Tartare was truly exceptional, like I could have eaten multiple servings. Oh, the rest of the food we tried was delicious too. The ambiance is fun and lively. In the end, I would still recommend eating here. I will be back for the Beef Wellington (although I may call first to confirm it's available...and stop at a pub on the way for a proper drink or 2;)

    The food was underwhelming to say the least. I’ve had better potatoes out of a box and the rest was just bland. The servers were rude and from the moment we arrived appeared to only be interested in turning the table in what was a most empty dining area. We ordered slightly dirty martinis and received some overly citrusy concoction that harkened back to the sorority girls of college days whooping and pounding lemon shots. Do yourself a favor and skip this “dining experience “.

    Very pleasant Sunday breakfast with family. Good quality ingredients in evidence, well prepared. Special kudos to the staff, who were very helpful and accommodating. Even sorting out something for a fussy, lactose-intolerant five-year old. Only minor criticism was that my poached eggs were slightly harder than I would have wanted. Otherwise, family and guests enjoyed their food and made very favourable comments. Looking forward to coming back to try the steak options for lunch or dinner. And nice coffee.

    Have visited this place alot and always really enjoyed it but how ever don't know what's going on with this place. Waiting a long time for main dishes after the snacks then my dish was cold in the middle not great. The staff were friendly but definitely lack experience on severing the table. Shall be a while before I decide to go back or not. Disappointing to say the least.

    We had a fantastic time at Bread Street Kitchen. The food was excellent and the staff were accommodating, entertaining, and friendly. I was compelled to book two tables for a large group at slightly different times (due to a strange quirk of the booking site), but the staff ensured that we all sat and ate together with no fuss. I had the Tuna Tartar followed by the Beef Wellington - both were delicious. My daughter will never forget jokingly asking for 'a single bean,' to then be served with a coffee bean in an espresso cup. The atmosphere really was bolstered by the staff members and their willingness to please. We would love to visit again. No sign of Gordon..

    The bread street kitchen on St Andrew’s Square is a great location and the place inside is great. Staff are very good and was busy. The wines were great although maybe some people would say expensive. The Californian Pinot was great. The food menu is ok. Standard of the cooking good but the menu left us flat. Not great just ok. My wife had a steak and I had spatchcock chicken. Just left is feeling this location was ok. No Burrata as a starter with dinner at six. ??? Tuna tartare was good. We both agreed the menu needs to be sharpened up. Will not return in a hurry. Better food elsewhere

    Was seated inside restaurant, would have preferred upstairs for view. Food was lovely, service for drinks was slow and not quite what we asked for but turned out fine. Ended up with glass of red rather than a carafe as was so long to come and meal was more of less finished (Beef wellington) which was excellent. Would go back so not off putting.

    We arrived just after 8pm. Despite the fact we were only a table of 2 the main course didn’t arrive until 10.00pm, over an hour after we’d finished our starters. The food was good, but not worth the wait.

    I’ve not been before so don’t know if the entire restaurant is loud making conversation difficult. Perhaps I should have specifically asked for a quieter position rather than expecting initiative from the 85th birthday booking information given. On two separate occasions waiters practically leaned over our party to take photos of the neighbouring table. As a group of 5, including one vegetarian, we ordered 2 beef wellingtons and the celeriac steak, after 4 starters. The starters were tasty. The manner in which the beef was served was perfunctory. The vegetarian meal was running late so we started the beef and were almost finished by the time the celeriac arrived. The beef was good, tender if a little dry. I don’t know what happened to the celeriac, but it had very little umami flavour, not enough browning, had some mushrooms and onions but nothing recognisable as mushroom sauce. We wouldn’t order it again. Our first serving team disappeared and were replaced by Waheed, who was much more attentive, making some effort at charm and establishing rapport. Sticky toffee pudding was lovely, cranachan cheesecake was a delightful light mousse, fruit carpaccio was refreshing. Add water, 5 cocktails and 2 glasses of wine and the meal was £430. Would we come again? Probably not.

    We had an excellent waiter, and they were very accommodating with our children. The food was very good with generous portions, although they could have made some descriptions a little clearer. For example, if you get the Beef Wellington, it easily will serve 3 people, or skip an appetizer.

    We had a group of 8 and 60% overall had a fabulous meal. The others ranged from ‘ok’ to ‘not very nice’. The burgers were ‘not very nice’. The service was excellent with front of house doing everything they should be and well mannered. I would return as my meal was lovely (beef tartare and steamed sea bass), but unfortunately, a few in my party will not.
