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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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

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
orchestrated team.
The food was creative, attractive to look at and delicious. Many thanks for a lovely evening.

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.
