I had a very tasty lunch with a friend on Friday. We were both delighted with everything from the delicious aperitif, cauliflower with herbs starter, sea bass which was beautifully cooked to the wonderful dessert, little balls of chocolate mousse with almonds and citrus in a pretty little arc on the plate. Top marks for flavour, taste and presentation! It’s a very welcoming restaurant, not least because of the friendly, efficient service and somewhere I look forward to returning.

Generally very good, and most of the food was excellent, with the exception of the dish with orzo which was rather uninteresting.

Restaurant itself is lovely but the food was trying too hard to be a level above what it actually was. Starter choice good, but main course poor - game? beef? Wine list overpriced. Aim a level down, make it a regular good ol’ Scottish bistro and the surroundings would make it just wonderful.

What a wonderful experience we had here. The food was delicious - beautifully cooked and presented. All the dishes we had were fantastic and well executed. The staff were what made the meal though - they were all attentive, kind and very generous. They noticed it was our anniversary and gave us each a glass of complimentary prosecco which was incredibly kind, and were just generally exceptional.

This is a good find, hidden in full view of the centre of Edinburgh. A very nice ambience, and quirky dining room. Friendly helpful staff and good food at reasonable prices. The only slight negative was that we felt a bit rushed, and had to slow the dessert course down, otherwise we would have been finished within an hour. That would be OK for lunch, but in the evening we prefer to take more time over a meal.

I would recommend Forage and Chatter to anyone looking for well prepared and beautifully presented Scottish food. The service is exceptional, and the decor and ambiance are perfect for a romantic meal for two. We arrived as soon as the restaurant opened and we’re the only pair sat in our little area for a while, but it didn’t feel awkward. Would love to return.

I don't normally bother writing reviews. However, Forage & Chatter merit feedback. Lunch was simply fabulous. Service was attentive and charming. The place its self is relaxed and stylish. The food is sublime. Stunning cooking. Real passion and care clearly goes into everything they do. Unbelievable value. The pinnacle of a great day in Edinburgh.

This is a favourite lunch spot of mine and I was a little disappointed that for the first time there was obtrusively loud music. The restaurant was busy and there was no need for any music. To his credit the waiter immediately turned down the volume when we asked.

The set lunch was very good value as always with interesting subtle dishes.

Nearly perfection. I say nearly because the restaurant is down some slippery, narrow stairs and separated from some less considerate neighbors by a wooden wall. Also I personally found the chairs less than comfortable. The food was nigh-on Michelin standard, though I found some woody stalks in my samphire , this is the only criticism I can level at the food. Unusual and lovely selection of wines also.
