As usual a fantastic evening, great selection of food and drink. Just perfect for an after work early dinner and catch-up.

This is my go to restaurant!

Great steak!! It was by far the best I had in a while. The risotto was also delicious. Will return :)

We had an amazing time at Edwin’s for my mum’s birthday, beautiful interiors and a really lovely atmosphere! The two male waiters who served us were very helpful and friendly. We were the last ones in the restaurant but they didn’t rush us and made us feel very welcome. The food and wine were both fantastic!

Edwins is always a lovely experience, however I have noticed a decline in the food quality. I have had to send meals back on my last two visits to be re-cooked.

The wine menu has changed and I much preferred the earlier choices.

Great discovery, lovely atmosphere, food & staff. We had the pre-theatre 2 courses for £20, not that cheap but delicious: smoked haddock soup and duck. We did need to pay extra for veg, but overall we loved it. Didn't have time for dessert - we'll have to go back!

We're a group of foodies and we were all really impressed with everything we ate at Edwins. The service was fantastic and the place is really cosy. We all felt like we were eating in someone's impeccably decorated lounge. You must have the scallops in filo - they were to die for! We had to order a second round we loved them so much!

We booked this for my mom’s birthday and I called specifically to specify this is a special occasion and asked for cosy table and if they do any dessert for birthday or candles.
I don’t think that table allocated was the best, nor it was by the window as promised. Nothing was done to make my mom feel special from the restaurant staff, no dessert with candle nor even congratulations.
We made sure she felt spoiled by us though:)
Waited forgot about the lemonade I ordered and when served after reminder indeed it was not the best!
I also asked if I could have some chopped garlic, but we’re served whole garlic in a bowl. We had to ask 3 times afterwards to chop them. I just like having bread with butter and garlic and no one usually finds this request weird.
Overall not worth visiting for special occasion, that’s for sure. We didn’t feel homey-cosy-attentive service nor mouthwatering meal unfortunately.

I've eaten twice at Edwin's recently and would definitely go back. One occasion was a celebration so we splashed out with glasses of cremant - a delightful alternative to the ubiquitous pro secco - and oysters. My companion was delighted with the scallops in filo pastry. We went for the small plates, which are generous in portion, and there is an excellent choice including nourishing as well as tasty kalettes with poached egg, perfectly cooked and I would recommend also the lobster ravioli. Attentive and helpful service.
Spot on and a delight all round

Whilst the restaurant ambience is great and the staff lovely, all in all it was a disappointment. The table we were sat at by the window which was very cold. They ran out of bread. The service was quite slow. My venison was average.

It was my first visit to Edwins and in fact I wasn’t aware of them and found them merely by an online search of best restaurants in the London Bridge area. I was sold my the online menu with partridge though unfortunately it wasn’t on the menu when I went, as evidently it was out of season, so I had mallard instead. All of the food was delicious and the service was first rate. The waiters went over on beyond to satisfy my requests, and very attentive. The ambience was homely and intimate, I would certainly return. My friend who dined with me was equally impressed, so it was delightful experience, especially as we hadn’t dined there before.

The staff were friendly and attentive from the word go. An acommodating maitre let us in even though we arrived over 10 minutes before opening time.
We immediately liked the slightly worn, homely look. The place half-filled in later, but well-spaced tables and soft music allowed for quiet conversation.
We picked a pre-theatre menu of wild mushroom risotto and smoked cod soup, both excellent, followed by root vegetable hash and confit du canard. All ingedients combined beautifully, my first fish soup in 15 years wiped all bad memories of a previous attempt, the duck leg's crusty skin deserved a sonnet.
Even though we took no desserts, we left well satiated and lyrical about the food and the place. A well-hidden, true gem.

We had a Valentine's dinner here, for which there was a set menu. The value for money was excellent.

It's hidden behind quite an inconspicuous door, but the interior when you get up there is very nice; quaint and cute.

Staff were very friendly and accommodating from the moment we stepped into the restaurant to the moment we left.

Food was excellent (some of the best scallops I've had) as was the wine, though you may find that's where your bill will start adding up.

Also be wary of the service charge that is added to your bill.

This is somewhere we'll definitely be coming back to.

Valentine day dinner - this is a wonderful, relaxed local restaurant with a great, friendly informal atmosphere, modest prices but really fantastic delicious food! Amazing. A lovely evening - service was a little slow at times but I think they were a bit stretched with a very busy Valentines night! The beef rib steak was cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back!
