Servizio scarso, cibo discretamente accetabile, rapporto qualitá/prezzo alto.
Ho prenotato con sconto 40 %, data l’offerta disponibile; tuttavia, dopo averlo richiesto, mi é stato portato un conto pari a 50 £, senza alcuno sconto. Ho informato la manager del ristorante, la quale ha detto di essersi dimenticata, nonché applica uno sconto, che però non é pari al 40 %(lei dice di aver fatto il 40% soltanto sul cibo e non sulle bevande) ma é minore; reclamo, leggendo accanto a lei quanto riportato nell’email di prenotazione e, dopo varie insistenze, applica il 40 % effettivo.

Think the management need to make some decisions about this place on a Friday/Saturday night.

Either it’s a restaurant OR a bar OR a nightclub - it can’t be all three and have a room full of happy clientele.
We reserved a ‘high table’ for dinner. Little did we know that meant other people in the bar for drinks would randomly join our table, or that the bar would get soooo busy for drinks at 9pm - we couldn’t get away from our table to access the loo and the waitress couldn’t get through with the food or drinks orders.
Fair to say - a great cocktail bar at night, a great lunch venue. But to call it a restaurant isn’t fair to the unsuspecting customer when it’s not an accurate description.

Copper Blossom was a great spot for Friday night in Edinburgh. We were there on holiday (from the US), recommended by a friend who lives in town. We really enjoyed the place but the music did get a bit loud after 9:30.

I ordered the spring chicken and was left still feeling hungry after it. Overpriced for the little food I got. The actual venue was lovely though and had a nice vibe. The service was ok, had to wait a while for order to be taken.

Bar staff were excellent. Food was delicious and fast. Table was a bit dirty but we did arrive at 815 for our table so were probably one of the last to be served. Nice atmosphere though and would definitely go back!

Drinks service to the table could have been more slick; perhaps consider an additional bar person dedicated to tables rather than serving guests who stand around the bar. It seems that currently, service operates on a 'he who shouts loudest basis'

We had a nice meal here, however (due to the none of the waiting staff's fault) the fire alarm went off and we had to wait outside for around 25 minutes. Thankfully our food hadn't arrived yet so it didn't go cold, and our waitress brought us complimentary new drinks. The cocktails were nice but not worth £8-9. The 3 bites for £12 deal isn't that much food, so we thought we'd order dessert. We both had the Eton Mess; don't order this. It was too creamy, to the extent that eating it was just eating mouthfuls of cream and not much else. It was a nice meal out but the price of the food wasn't really justified.

Chose Copper Blossom for a post-show meal during the Fringe festival due to quality of website, menu and proximity to lodgings. It was a success on all counts. Plenty of pre-meal comms to clarify what we required; service was attentive and courteous. Food was beautifully cooked and presented with appropriate portion sizes. Menu is extensive and will cater for most tastes. Priced for value I feel. We had a booth, good for privacy. Clientele generally on the young side, mostly generation Z, but we didn’t feel unduly out of place. Decor was stylish and contemporary with exposed brickwork finished with distressed paintwork.

It will be a first choice for me if I return to Edinburgh.

Found this restaurant on Open Table and was not disappointed. Friendly and helpful staff, efficient service, great cocktail choice and good food. One of us has a bite rather than main meal which was tasty and just enough. Price was fairly reasonable for such a centrally located restaurant. Would definitely visit again.

First time here and really liked this quirky little restaurant in the basement. Bright, clean and stylish. My friends and I had reserved a table and were seated in a booth. Serving staff were very helpful and attentive. We started off with cocktails and had the ‘bites’ for starters, burgers and fish and chips for main courses. Food was excellent. My friend commented that she didn’t like the music (I hadn’t noticed it!) but really only have positive things to say about my evening here. Looking forward to going back.

Food was lovely however the staff were not great. We were given warm water (no ice) were not offered to try the wine we purchased, plates were left for a while before clearing. When we asked for the bill no one come back, we had to go to the bar to pay and were stopped as the person taking payment welcomed new arrivals.
This is not the kind of experience I expect to receive.
Food however was lovely and good value for money

We were seated at the back of the restaurant which was very dark on a lovely sunny day. I ordered chicken pie which when it came was very tasty but very small and I felt was overpriced especially since you have to order sides separately. I had wanted the trifle for dessert but it had been replaced by Eton mess which I decided would be a good replacement. Unfortunately when it arrived it was basically a bowl of whipped cream with 3 or 4 raspberries and one piece of meringue! When I complained the waitress apologised and came back to say I would not be charged for it which I agreed with. Just disappointing as we had been to copper blossom before and had enjoyed it. We were seated at the front of the restaurant the first time and I think that made a big difference as it was bright and cheerful.

I’ve been to Copper Blossom a few times and have always enjoyed it. After recommending it for a ‘friend’s catch up’ I was really disappointed with our experience. I ordered the Chicken and Panchetta Caesar Salad, as it’s one of my favourite dishes however for the price it was very disappointing. The chicken was horrid with grisly bites all through it and hardly any panchetta. We kept having to try to get the staffs attention rather than them using their initiative to approach us. I work in the restaurant industry and after my recent experience, sadly wouldn’t recommend Copper Blossom anymore.
