From the moment we arrived everything was fantastic. Amazing starter, muscles were so tasty. For main we ordered a sharing board of steak. Best steak we’ve ever had, melted in mouth! Lovely wine and lovely cocktail at the end. Staff were lovely and made the night. 10/10, made our weekend!

Starter (Squid) & desert (Brownie) were very good. Main courses disappointed. Steak didn't look like Ribeye & wasn't cooked medium as requested. The blackened Tuna didn't match its description. Was expecting a far more spicy & black/peppered outer but instead just looked like it was normally seared. Nothing special & wife left more than half of it as she wasn't sure if it was off. Sides were below average. Dripping chips were flavourless, onion rings were bog standard & peppercorn sauce was bland and tasteless. The only saving grace was the slaw which was very tasty.

In terms of service our waiter was very nice, welcoming & attentive. The meeter/greeter wasn't overly friendly on initially coming through the door. Wasn't the warmest & best welcome we've ever had.

Overall we had high expectations & were left very disappointed by our visit. Food was only average & wont be going back or recommend to others. I think you can get a better steak meal elsewhere in town.

The steak was beautiful, unlike any I'd ever tasted. However, it was tiny for the price we paid. The chips were so thin and crispy they broke in half when I tried to pick them up with a fork. I didn't think straw fries were going to be string fries. Wine was great, bread and marrow butter was amazing.

Overall, I probably wouldn't go back unless I had more money than sense. It was expensive and the portions were very small. But, great steak.

booked for husbands birthday and there were 6 of us on a round table which was great. The starters were lovely and the servers advised how many of each starter to order based on appetite ie hearty appetite versus not so hungry and leaving room for my main etc ,steaks were very good, cooked as ordered and the puddings delicious. I would definitely visit again.

Patchy. The starters were divine... mini taco, battered prawns and scotch egg. Cauliflower steak cooked on grill with pomegranite and mint was inspired, need to have that again soon! Sides and steak great. Mussels were inedible shocking that a chef would send such rubbish out. Staff attentive but long delay between courses where no one in the room had food was irritating. Mussels and drinks taken off bill to compensate for disappointment and delay.

Food and cocktails were lovely only didn’t give top marks as a large hair was in my daughters food and we were charged £8 for one sausage and egg for a two year old which seemed a bit much.

Service pretty slow, food lovely but by the time our sides arrived the steaks were getting pretty cold. Glass of wine took an age to arrive as well in spite of it being late on and the staff not obviously busy! Staff seemed a bit too cool for school, apart from the girl who brought us our food who was very professional. Bit of a strange set up as well in that you weren’t sure who was responsible for your table? We were served by so many different people! Lovely decor & ambience good (excellent music) but won’t be going back, sorry.

Outstanding.

I'm so glad Chophouse have moved into the south side of town, not that Leith was far away but it's now easier to eat here more often. I had a great time, which was made all the more enjoyable by the wonderful service, great beer and wine selection and the fantastic selection of steaks including my favourite cut, rump.

Went to the Bruntsfield chophouse in its first couple of weeks and very much enjoyed the food and service. However went back for my brothers birthday last weekend and was quite disappointed. The service at the bar was lacking, I got a drink but they didn’t pick up my brothers order. The young guy who served us partially was friendly but our plates sat on our small table for quite a while after we finished when they were cleared by the manager she simply asked if there was too much food... the onion rings were soggy and mash lumpy. When we paid the bill and left a generous tip considering, there were no pleasantries. I feel so disappointed as it was awesome when it first opened. Maybe just a bad day but I would think twice about recommending or going back in a hurry...

Amazing, as always. Friendly staff, fabulous service, next level steaks, and the drinks (the bourbon banana flip btw!) oh and the decor! Have been coming here since they first opened in Leith. This time brought along family from Aus who ordered the Highland cow sharing cut & this was their best meal out of their whole trip around Europe (& the best steak they have had in their entire life)!

Food was ok, but we had mussels where a significant number weren’t open and our rib-eye steaks , although nicely cooked, had some sinews that we couldn’t eat. Staff were nice, but overpriced for quality provided (IMO)

No discount offered - after feedback.

The chop house is fine. I think what lets it down is that the ambiance is akin to a Byron or similar kind of restaurant, i.e. high end burger joint. Its loud and you are packed in. We could hear everything the table beside us were saying. That’s fine for a certain type of night out, but there is a much higher price point here. I’ve been to the sister restaurant with a large group of guys and I think it is better suited to that than a date.

The food is fine. My steak was a bit over what I like. The waitress was happy to take it back, but I didn’t want to have to eat at a different time than my date.

The service was the best element of the evening.

We booked on a Sunday afternoon for a roast dinner and we were looking forward after a visit to the Market St restaurant. The starters of chicken skewers and Scotch egg were lovely. However, the roast was lukewarm and the roast potatoes were hard as if they had been reheated (these were sent back and offered mashed potato instead, this was lumpy and bland). Additionally, the Yorkshire pudding resembled a scone in both taste and texture. The greens and carrots were tasty, as was the Bloody Mary. Overall we were very disappointed with the meal having had a great meal previously at the Market St. restaurant.

I visited with a friend for brunch and we absolutely loved it! I had the bacon sandwich - best most extravagant bacon sandwich of my life! My friend had the butchers breakfast! The food was amazing, and great value we thought! See the @edinburghfoodgirl Instagram account post for more detail and a picture! Really love the decor of the place too.. think this is a really great addition to bruntsfield!

Having enjoyed both the branches in Leith and Market Street we were looking forward to the newest addition to the Chop House, despite very attentive service and a ‘buzzy’ atmosphere it was a bit of a disappointment. The starters were fine but there was a bit of a gap until the mains arrived which meant the relatively expensive bottle of wine was almost consumed. My wife’s straw fries appeared undercooked and my beef dripping chips were lukewarm and unfortunately the rib-eye was slightly tough - I think our dishes may have been on the pass longer than necessary. Will return to Leith venue again though!

Having looked forward to eating at Chop Houses new outpost in Bruntsfield it was a shame to find that something just wasn’t right. Regulars to their Leith home, the food is among the best in Edinburgh, sadly the wasn’t the case for their Bruntsfield space.

We came in for breakfast with my parents who were down for a week in Edinburgh, our server Emma made us feel incredibly welcome and engaged with us in good conversation.

We had the Butchers Breakfast and one had Eggs Benedict; outstanding food all round and more than enough to get your energy for the day - not too much but certainly not too little by any stretch!

The bloody marys (included due to time and day of booking) were spectacular, and at varying spice levels decided by the guest they are able to cater to all tastes.

I thoroughly recommend Chophouse Bruntsfield for anyone looking for top quality, service, atmosphere, and just hearty food.

We've been to the Shore restaurant many times and wanted to try a different one. The Bruntsfield Chop House is brilliant and we loved the atmosphere. We'd definitely hop on the bus from the shore to go to this sister restaurant without a doubt. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable without being overbearing! We'll definitely return. 😀
