    The end of a beautiful holiday in Scotland. Our server was Eduardo. He was wonderful. Professional with a happy spirit. We sat outside on a gorgeous afternoon in Edinburgh. Eduardo made the experience perfect. Food was very good. A little pricey but overall, worth it.

    Tasteless food. Very disappointed, service was good but didn’t make up for the shocking food. I can’t believe Gordon Ramsey puts his name to this place. The curry was like hot water with some strands of chicken floating in it, terrible.

    My partner and I had a brilliant experience tonight in your restaurant. Not only was the food really tasty but the service was second to none. Our server, Catriona, was amazing. She was attentive, knowledgeable and cheerful and made the overall experience really positive. I must also say, we both watched all your staff throughout our visit and saw really hard working and organised people, a real credit and not often came across. We’ll definitely be back. Thank you 😊

    Cracking meal and service. It’s a decent menu with plenty options, and food prices are decent. Wine list was good but pricey, although the House wine was good at £26 a bottle. We ate upstairs, with a table at the window overlooking St. Andrews Square. Overall I was very impressed and will definitely return.

    Nice interior. Restaurant not overly busy. Waited half an hour on drink order to be taken. Server seemed to be focused on clearing tables. First drink arrived 40 minutes after arrival. Wouldn’t have liked to have been in a hurry. Ordered olives for the table with drinks- But, these came with the starters. Young lady who served our food was very friendly and seemed to be very customer aware. Ordered a non alcoholic G&T from our initial server …came with lemonade which was fine but not what I ordered ( didn’t send back because it could taken a long time to get a replacement!) I could see the drinks were made up promptly from the bar staff but sat a while whilst tables continued to be cleared. Dessert was amazing, again ordered tea from our server but had to ask him twice. Think he forgot the first time. Overall was okay, had been gifted a voucher which we used but I’m not sure I’d rush back. A service charge was already on the bill. Which we paid and a little more. Definitely the service made the experience not as enjoyable as we had hoped.

    Gordon Ramsay would have absolutely cringed (…and thrown a complete f-bomb meltdown) at the experience we had… our server was completely unprepared, untrained, and frankly a hot mess. The food all came out at random times- the bread we ordered with the appetizers came after the dinner was served with each meal arriving minutes apart -most of the food was cold and nothing was amazing. Really a huge bummer. The only upside was my younger son who wants to be a chef loved the (cold)beef Wellington 🙄

    The food here was not good. We had the butter chicken, the broccoli, and the sticky toffee pudding. The butter chicken barely even had salt. It was one of the worst dishes I’ve had in Edinburgh.

    The food was awful. Bread was stale and hard as a rock. The beef wellington was soggy. Mashed potatoes were dry, carrots undercooked. Prawn cocktail was like mayonnaise soup. Actual cocktail was watered down and stacked with ice. At one point, another diner yelled at a waiter for the poor service. The only shining moment of the entire evening was being served by Marie Claire who is an absolute gem and deserves a raise. Very disappointing.

    Celebrating my husbands birthday and very disappointed. Slow service ordered food at 8.30 and still no meal at 9.45pm. I asked a waitress who shouted across the terrace restaurant it takes 20 minutes for the pork. Rudeness from some staff. Food arrived cold and late. Wine warm! Will not be visiting again!

    Service was excellent as were the cocktails. However our starters took a wee while to get out and my steak (medium rare) was over done. I guess maybe it had been sitting under a heat lamp too long. Saying that, it was delicious and moist so the flavour was there. I didn’t send it back because of this, it tasted good however it wasn’t perfect. For £40 I expect perfect. Overall was lovely atmosphere but steak cooking let it down.

    The beef wellington was good but was more cooked medium well rather than medium rare. I found the restaurant very cold and the toilets were not very well cleaned. I know everywhere is short staffed however when paying these prices you would expect clean toilets.
