The meat is dry aged for up to 90 days to add flavour, increase tenderness then the beef cooked on a charcoal grill, specially designed to give a subtle smoky flavour.

                                                          Steaks are excellent as are the sides and Caesar salad. Nice drinks too. Restaurant is extremely noisy, small and quite warm. To be fair there was a party of twenty by us and we could barely hear each other. Good thing the food was good!

                                                          Great Food! We had early evening meal, and it was good all round. My only fault is wanting a large soft drink - everything was bottle. So had pint of beer - no harm done properly better for it. We cooked meet with nice sides. Quality rather quantity.

                                                          Our 4th visit to a "Chop House" and least enjoyed. We were meeting friends for the first time in 2 and a half years so didn't want to spoil the atmosphere and make a fuss about our disappointment. Regrettably the Ribeyes and sides were not the quality and flavour the price would suggest. The service, wine and puddings were great but that's not why we came to a Steakhouse.

                                                          Lovely restaurant. Steak was amazing as was the Mac n cheese. Cocktails were delicious too. The only fault we had were the triple cooked chips could have been better. They lacked colour and were extremely dry.

                                                          We were seated quickly but rushed to order drinks and food. For our table of 2, there was not enough room at the table for our drinks let alone food. The starters were lovely and came out quickly and hot so we had high hopes for our mains. Both of us got steaks which were dry and fatty. The triple cooked chips were crispy on the outside but undercooked on in the inside. 1 of us ended up leaving half of the steak as it was dry and burnt. The server could not open our bottle of wine and was concerning us that she was going to spill things over the table. We waited around 15/20 minutes for the bill although the restaurant wasn’t exactly busy. Would not rush back in a hurry.

                                                          Food was ok but thought certain items were overpriced. The main course sides were £5 each and not that substantial. Also a glass of wine was £11. Food was acceptable but overall way overpriced!

                                                          I’ve eaten at Chop House a number of times and have found the experience to be inconsistent among the branches and visits. On this occasion our starter wings were raw and our rib eye steaks were unacceptably gristly

                                                          I've dined here before and THE BEST experience (was about 3 years ago). Came back, post Covid for my partner's 40th as a treat, and was really disappointed. We waited about 10 mins for the menus to be bought over (we were right next to the bar where staff were standing, serving and chatting amongst themselves). We chose not to have starters because we were so hungry, and waited just over an hour in total for our meal (we had just order steaks and a side each). When the steaks arrived, they were cooked as we had requested, but they were below room teperature. I appreciate steaks should be rested, but they should still be of a certain temperature by the time they reach the table. The drinks, the sides and the dessert was all great (except the sides are very small portions!) And the staff that interacted with us were very friendly. I'm afraid I will not be back.

                                                          The steak was great and the sides were better. Get a side of sourdough per person in addition to other sides :) The garlic mushroom was especially good

                                                          I would not recommend the chop house the food was overpriced, the service was not great and the toilets were sticky under my feet.

                                                          Service was slow, waiting a while to be served and drinks and starters came at the same time. Food was good but on the pricey side.

                                                          Party of four. Perfectly aged and prepared ribeyes. Tried most of the sides, shared on the table. Suggest two fries/potatoes to four people.

                                                          you need to ensure that if you decide to have a meal here everyone wants meat. We had dinner here and the three steak were of a good quality but my wife had the fish and this turned out to be four small fish balls . We asked the waiter if that was the complete dish and there was a lack of interest from him or his supervisor regarding our complaint. In the end we shared our meal with her and decided due to the lack of interest from the staff this would be the last time we would use this restaurant.

This was quickly rectified with new steak and fresh sides. Given complimentary wine and a discounted bill for the inconvenience. The staff couldn’t have done anymore to ensure we left completely satisfied.

                                                          Blown away by the wonderful service here. The cocktails were lovely and the chateaubriand is a MUST. Will definitely be back when next in Edinburgh

                                                          Took wifey out for a date night and it was fabulous. The ambience, the staff and the food was great! I will visit again and again and will recommend.

                                                          We've visited this Chop House before but this was the first time we'd visited as a family and we all loved it! The kids menu got a big thumbs up from our youngest and was great value. Wonderful service, delicious food and a nice chilled atmosphere. Would highly recommend!!

                                                          The chateaubriand steak with 3 sauces was incredible - tasty, tender and cooked perfectly - which we then followed by some of the most delicious desserts we've ever tasted. Add to this the best margarita in Edinburgh - a fantastic experience all round!

                                                          Steaks were amazing so well cooked. Best chips too, triple cooked. We also had a truffled Caesar salad which was so delicious. We were there at 4 ish and was quite quiet but still a lovely ambience

                                                          Was really disappointed with the steak as it had lots of fat on it and the knives were too light making it difficult to cut. The chips were inedible but the cocktail was lovely. Overall wouldn’t recommend.
