Regional American (Southern)
A beautiful new restaurant and bar nestled in the heart of Edinburgh city centre.

East Finch combines the love of two of our most favourite American destinations, NYC & New Orleans.

A varied selection of plates inspired by the rich cuisine of New Orleans and the South United states. Heavy influence from classic Cajun and Creole with a modern twist. Delicious rich Gumbo, Poboys stuffed to the brim and chicken waffles that will blow your mind are a few of our favouties.

    The food is amazing and the cocktails are unbelievable. The staff are as friendly as you can get and they explain everything. It is is a bit noisy but it only adds to the atmosphere.

    Five stars tells you everything you need to know about what we thought of every part of our experience. Seven stars to the incredible staff. They talk so passionately about their food and drinks and are clearly so engaged in creating a whole experience. Thank you to Connor in particular for looking after us so well. My advice? Book now.

    The staff was absolutely spot on. They made the experience personalized, fun and we felt like the only customers in the place (although it was full) due to their attentiveness! The food was delicious and reminded us of home in the USA with a twist of Edinburgh culture! Definitely would recommend…the shrimp gumbo was out of this world!

    Reservations at 6:30 on a Friday night - we were 1 one of the first tables to arrive. Staff was friendly and attentive; sharing funny stories. Food was delicious (poppers, pork fritter, ox cheeks, gumbo). Desserts were also great - beignets were delicious but not puffy… more like cake donuts. Very fun!

    I went here for some cocktails for my 21st birthday with some friends and I can truly say it was amazing. I have been coming to east finch since it opened and I have never been disappointed with the service or the cocktails. If you are looking for amazing food, good music and outstanding cocktails with down to earth staff this is definitely the place to go! I’ll never stop coming here as it is some of my favourites!

    Nice venue, food average (peach sauce on wings was exception) rest so so, drinks pricy (£10-13 for a cocktail), service pleasant, efficient and friendly.

    Delicious food, great vegetarian options and excellent friendly service. My only criticism (might be age related!!) it was SO LOUD … almost impossible to have a conversation, but it was a buzzing Saturday night. Will try again maybe a weekday night or lunch - the food was worth it.

    Just a total delight from start to finish - exceptional team who are so passionate about what they’re serving. We discovered new - delicious - cocktails and loved every dish. Loved the chicken ribs, ox cheeks and fried chicken pancakes. Best of all were the people who couldn’t do enough to make sure you have a brilliant time. Excellent playlist too!

    Booked dinner while in Edinburgh for a short break, food and drinks were both fantastic my wife who isn’t a big drinker kept up with me drink for drink. Food is the best southern American I’ve had outside of the u.s.a I’ve had. Keep up the good work guys and gals.

    Phenomenal!!! My favorite dining experience in the UK ever! This place is truly special. The food is excellent. Delicious. Prepared with passion and care. The ambiance is friendly and chic in a relaxed way. Cocktail bar extroidanaire. Crafted cocktails that are not only gorgeous but delicious. Inventive menu that doesn’t disappoint. Lots of choices. I had Fried chicken po-boy (a Louisiana style sandwich) served GF simply without bun in a salad type style. The fried chicken is gluten free and is perfection no matter if you’re GF or not. You’ll love it! I liked this spot so much that I came back two nights in a row and brought friends. I only regret I live too far away to go regularly. The owner is talented and a visionary. Chef obviously excellent. Please go and try this place. Don’t be in a hurry while there. They freshly prepare upon ordering so it’s a nice, easy, un-rushed pace. Worth the wait!! And no, I don’t know the owner, nor was I paid to review. This is my honest review. I loved it that much!!

    Great tunes, staff super friendly and relaxed giving recommendations on everything. Interior is stunning. Food outstanding despite being quite pricey, but was well worth the extra cost for what we got. Try the Po Boys! Drinks were sublime too, we want to come back and sample more cocktails. The "Banana-vardier" with bananabread-soaked Jack Daniels was out of this world.
