Really lovely atmosphere and good service. We had the set menu. I’m afraid I really didn’t like the starters at all. I had the leek and asparagus veloute which came with a very runny barely cooked egg, it was really unappealing having runny egg white mixing in with the soup. My husband had the liver parfait which I found very strongly flavoured and it came with no bread or anything to spread the parfait on, it was not pleasant just eaten on its own. The main and dessert were both lovely but the starters put us both off a bit.
The food was absolutely amazing. In comparison to London prices it's an absolute steal. The service is rather slow, but the food is worth the wait.
Brilliant restaurant, with fantastic service, exceptionally tasty and beautifully presented food, plus in a very central location. Must visit!
Fantastic restaurant food was out of this world service was also fantastic was my fiance's 30th birthday and they Surprise her with free wine and also decoration on the plate.
Fantastic food in a beautiful venue. Service was great. Would definitely recommend
Always a pleasure to visit Forage & Chatter. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly and welcoming. One of our favourite restaurants in Edinburgh. It’s certainly worth a visit and would suggest, for dinner, advance booking essential.
Das Essen war von der Vorspeise bis Dessert Dessert spitze. Kleine besondere Karte, sehr netter Service, kann man nur weiterempfehlen.
Food was amazing staff where very polite and professional
This place is absolutely fabulous and a hidden gem
Wonderful service and delicious food! We’ll certainly be returning.
What can I say, superb lunch, exemplary service (again, thanks Harry!) second week in a row and everything on point. Highly recommended.
Had a lovely evening at Forage and Chatter. The food was lovely and service fantastic. They were brilliant in discussing my dietary requirements and, for a change, I didn’t feel like I was missing out. The decor made in feel very relaxed. Thank you!
received a voucher from family and visited for dinner. Service was really great, got a little slower as the night went on and restaurant got busier but that’s understandable and still good. Food was delicious, menu is large enough for choice but not too big-allowing them to really perfect the dishes they served. Can’t wait to return!
Had a wonderful evening! The staff is very warm and friendly. The service is far over "normal" . Thank you for being your guests.
We had lovely meal and the haggis was amazing. Would recommend anyone who hasn't experienced this Scottish dish to try the mini version .
Lekker eten, volledig naar onze verwachtingen, mooi gepresenteerd, geen grote porties, maar voldoende. Prijzig, maar dat weet je op voorhand. Vriendelijk personeel, maar verliezen je af en toe toch uit het oog, wat in dit soort zaak niet zou mogen gebeuren.
Everything was amazing! Our server Amber was very knowledgeable about the wine and food and made great recommendations. The chicken liver pate was savory and umami! The langoustine soup with mussels was delicious and flavorful as well and not too heavy. The monkfish entree with lentils was perfection. And for dessert a cheese course and chocolate mousse. Would definitely come again! Great start to our Scottish adventure!
We were welcomed at the front door and shown promptly to our table. The service was very attentive, and not too speedy that we felt rushed. The food we ordered from the à la carte menu was delicious and beautifully presented. It was nice to eat some food with different (I suppose, foraged,) ingredients.
The wine list had a good variety of wines and we were more than happy with our Chenin Blanc, for taste and price.
All in all, an excellent meal and well worth the day trip from York for the experience.
Every dish had really interesting flavours and the setting was just perfect. Service impeccable. Would absolutely visit again for a special occasion x
Fantastic experience! Amazing food, very attentive service, and not overpriced. We loved everthnin!
Great time and nice people!
Good good Also of course
Very nice quaint restaurant. Lovely meal but didn't like the bench style tables.
The staff at Forage and Chatter helped make a birthday meal extra special. The food and service was excellent. Cant wait to go back.
Cortesi nelle aspettative. La nostra esperienza degustativa non è stata dissimile da quanto aspettavamo.
Molto schematico. Non c’è possibilità di ottenere varianti ai piatti che sono in menù.
Lista dei vini abbastanza ridotta.
Personale in sala non all’altezza del locale. La cameriera per ben due volte ha portato il vino aperto a tavola.
Tempi di attesa della cucina molto lunghi, anche se eravamo solo noi in sala.
Spiacenti anche se le aspettative erano migliori
Best place in town, no food was as seasonal, well prepared or inventive as this in Edinburgh. Would recommend to anyone
Fantastic food and service was second to none. Highly recommend!
Very good value for money lunch menu, fab selection of wines and gin. Staff are lovely, this was our second visit - we will definitely be back!
we loved the look and feel of this restaurant space in its current incarnation. The service was warm and helpful. The food was fresh and innovative with a few misses but generally a good effort all around . will definitely return!
Excellent service and food, complementary Prosecco for our anniversary, and we were undercharged for the wine, even when we pointed out their error. These young people deserve the o succeed. Really convenient to the Waldorf Astoria. Must be the best value for money for this quality of food in Edinburgh. Albert McNeill
The food and service were both amazing and met our expectations after reading all the wonderful reviews. Would highly recommend.
What a lovely place to be. We had lunch as the evening was fully boojed, but it was still amazing. We had the set lunch menu which comprised of dishes direct from the a la carte menu ...which for me is always a good sign. Fantastic food, fantastic staff, fantastic place.
Tasty, creative food presented fabulously. Lovely ambience with friendly, efficient service.
Excellent restaurant, from welcoming upon arrival to completion of dining experience. My friend is gluten free so chef went out of his way to make special alterations to each course as necessary. Top quality food with presentations just like on Masterchef. A very special night indeed.
Excellent food and friendly professional service from motivated and appropriate staff.
My husband and I came here on a Saturday night to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and it didn't disappoint. From the very 1st moment we entered until we walked out, we felt well looked after and that we were watching a brilliantly
The food was creative, attractive to look at and delicious. Many thanks for a lovely evening.
Just amazing. Staff were welcoming and attentive throughout. Great ambience lovely booth giving a private cosy feel to our evening. The food was fresh, tasty, well cooked and beautifully presented. Quite frankly one of the best meals we have had in a very long time. We were not rushed either - a pet hate of ours! My husband and I highly recommend a eating here.
My third visit to this splendid small restaurant. I was not disappointed.
Incredible food with service to match. Made a birthday meal very special.
The food and ambiance were just perfect as we vacationed in Edinburgh.
Very interesting dishes with subtle flavors. Roasted cauliflower was amazing!
It was busy so my 8pm reservation didn’t seat me until 8:30pm. Staff we hustling though and also knowledgeable and attentive. They made me feel at home. The food was exquisite in preparation and presentation and the portion sizes allowed me to sample multiple items on the menu. Note that it’s tucked away downstairs so a bit hard to find from the street and disabled access might be an issue unless they have another access. I had one night in Edinburgh and this was my choice for dinner. No regrets whatsoever.
