Went at Monday lunchtime, very quiet in terms of customers, sat downstairs briefly but music a bit too loud here and the seats a bit awkward to get on and off! Upstairs was better. Staff were friendly and attentive to a point but seemed a little distracted considering there were so few customers. Not sure how it would be if it had been busy. The starters were reasonably tasty, crab on toast and a scotch egg. I opted for the steak salad, lovely herby dressing on the fairly unimaginative salad, did not think the meat was that great considering it is a steak house but I appreciate I opted for one of the cheaper lunchtime dishes. Might have been better to have had a better steak and salad as a side. My companion’s rump steak was good with tasty sauces. We did not enjoy the flavour of the thick chips, tasted a little stale to be honest, maybe just not used to the dripping flavour. Thought it was a pricey lunch, I have enjoyed tastier food in Edinburgh at a more reasonable price.

Steak was a bit overcooked but tender. My friend, who can't have eggs ordered the non-alcoholic Cosmo which said nothing about having egg but when it came out it had egg white foam, that should be stated on the menu. Overall a good meal but a bit disappointed that everyone's steaks were overcooked.

The meat was outstanding and desserts delicious as well. Sides were tasty but we were missing more vegetable options. I should also mention that the cocktails were quite good too. The setting was attractive and the staff good fun. To sum it up, this was a very good experience and a good finish of my graduation day.

I went to the Chop House for my girlfriends 30th birthday, the service and food was fantastic. As per my review above the noise level was high but that was because I proposed to my girlfriend and all the staff and other guests began to cheer when she said YES 😃. The staff went above and beyond and provided a truly outstanding level of service, I informed them of my intention to propose and suggested placing the ring in the desert. The staff also recorded the moment I proposed and sent it to my after.

Having been to Chop House, Leith, I was very excited to try the Market St. restaurant.

However, having ordered my steak medium rare, it came out well done. I returned the steak and got another sent out which was just rare. I accepted this as by this time my sides were getting cold.

I don't think I will be back here as the staff never even had the decency to throw in the sides (which were sitting cooling whilst the steak was returned) as gratitude for the mistake of the (well) overcooked steak.

It's disappointing as my visit to the Leith restaurant was exceptional.

Absolutely the best steak I’ve ever had in a restaurant! Cooked to perfection, the chips were great and the onion rings sublime!

My wife had the burger and it was equally yummy.

Cocktails are fabulous and the ambience and service first rate.

Anniversary meal, food took too long to arrive. Fillet steak with peppercorn sauce, this was bland and tasteless. Steak was cooked to perfection but not worth £36.
Lovely touch that we got a drink each on the house for our Anniversary

Disappointing! All 4 diners had food that was only lukewarm. Asked for Fillet Steak rare - it was over cooked being slightly pink and pale on top ... therefore had obviously not been seared and then over cooked - not good value for money at £36 ! The pork was probably the least edible ... as it was chewy. We were given 10% off the bill for this .

My partner and 1 won gift vouchers for a meal at the chop house. We were not disappointed! The food was amazing, service from all the staff was great, very attentive and happy to help. Although the meal may seem a bit expensive (£91 for two of us, mains and dessert, plus 3 drinks) it is definitely worth the money! When I visit again I’ll be sure to come on a day they have their deals as I know I will not be disappointed!

Great location, very close to Waverley Station. Love the vibe and music. The chef incorporates an Asian slant to the produce which is refreshing. I only wish if the server could have told us beforehand that they charge £4 for the bread when she suggested it, as most restaurants would serve it free, I’d think. She didn’t open the bottle of sparkling water for us when she brought it to the table either.

Great food. Ate on a Friday night so had very few meat options left which was unfortunate. Also a shame that the lobster was taken off the menu. Excellent service, music probably could have been a bit quieter but otherwise a pleasant experience.
