Forage & Chatter
Food was exceptional but portions on the small side. Service a bit formal and slow but they had staff member missing so forgivable. Overall really enjoyable lunch.
Stunning food. Great service. Lovely wine list. Will definitely visit again and already recommended to friends.
Food was fantastic with good service. Thank you for birthday plate as well.
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.
Easily the best food i’ve had in ages, the attention to detail was incredible. great service and polite friendly staff, couldn’t do enough for you. Great value for money too for amazing food!
Nice and cosy restaurant with excellent service and fantastic food
I went there for Friday lunch where they offered a set lunch option of 2 or 3 courses with a couple of choices for each course. This was exceptionally good value and the dishes were a la carte standard. I would have given 5 stars for food however was judging it compared to the best restaurants in Edinburgh. I would highly recommend this restaurant and would would say the set menu is exceptional value for money.
Very nice restaurant with its nice and care taking staff. Food was good. Needs a little refinement to be perfect.
Lovely food, friendly staff and cosy ambience.
Excellent food and service. Very friendly and engaging staff.
I have been here quite a few times so this visit was just as expected......perfect. The food...perfect. The presentation......perfect. The staff friendly, unobtrusive and as expected....perfect. I will return again and again.
An excellent lunch experience. Food imaginative and well presented.
Had a great meal here while away on business. The deer loin was delicious.
A birthday weekend to Edinburgh made extra special by going to this gem of a restaurant on Saturday evening. Food and wine were delicious.
My wife and I had a fantastic meal. We only had time for 2 courses but both were excellent - high quality ingredients, well prepared and some interesting flavour combinations.
Excellent meal and friendly attentive staff. A lively way to celebrate my birthday.
This is an outstanding restaurant and very moderately priced. There are many good restaurants where the food is very similar but this stands out from the crowd with simple but delicious flavours. The wine list also has some very moderately priced gems (1999 Musar at £73 is both an amazing wine and very moderately priced). Very modest, although pleasant, dining area but if you are in Edinburgh don’t miss it.
Very good overall. Only negative was I felt the portion sizes in relation to cost were a little small. That said, the food was excellent. Well balanced leaving me wanting more. The service was fantastic as well, Professional and friendly. Thank you for an enjoyable evening. I will be back.
Fantastic food. From the bread roll doughnuts to the venison, everything was extremely tasty.
A delicious Friday lunch. The set menu is fantastic value and cooked and presented to a very high standard. Maybe the only drawback is that there are only two options for each course. I will certainly try here again for dinner.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our food and the service was first class. The only slightly downside was that the portions were small but we did choose the set lunch and I really think the à la carte portions would be bigger. The friends I was with are not pudding fans so I chose not to have one too. In retrospect I should’ve had one which would probably have made all the difference. We’ll definitely be back though (and I’ll have a pudding next time!)
Interesting layout with small separate areas giving a more intimate atmosphere. Food was delicious. Service was attentive and friendly. Definitely recommend.
We were delighted with our meal and the staff were very attentive. We will definitely return and are already planning on bringing our family here.
We ate dinner on 17 January to celebrate an Anniversary. The whole experience was very special for us from the moment we arrived until we left, both of us feeling very comfortably full and a little smiley (That could have something to do with the wine!) We would have no hesitation is recommending this restaurant and when we return to Edinburgh, we will be back!
I so enjoyed my evening at Forage and |Chatter. The food was lovely, the service friendly but unobtrusive.
And the atmosphere where one could listen and talk without any strain was a rare delight. So many restaurants nowadays have terrible acoustics but somehow the sympathetic layout and background music just set the tone for a very relaxed evening of conversation and culinary delights. The wine list looked great - I'll be back after my dry January!
Nice, everyone came away happy. Food was excellent. Side dish of spuds caused a small anxiety in the group, did we need them didn't we need them ? Regret not getting them as they probably would have been great too.
Very good service when our table as not quite ready. Excellent food.
Favourite restaurant in Edinburgh!
Excellent food and the set menu is very good value
Great wine, food and atmosphere! Would definitely return
This place is absolutely lovely. Everything about our evening here was excellent and the team certainly deserve the praise that we’d read on other reviews before deciding to book here.
I was looking forward to a nice meal but it was even better than my expectations! Subtle flavours with perfect wine pairings. The wine list is a bit special with wines from lesser known countries so do ask the personnel for help, they really know their trade and products. I had lamb sweetbreads for starters and haddock for main course. The only downside was I was traveling alone and was just thinking of my friends who would have appreciated it as much.
Outstanding is truly the only word that can describe our experience. With exceptional food, a our medley of flavours the only aspect that can rival the food is the phenomenal service at every turn. Cosy restaurant nothing too fancy that allows one to feel right at home. Personal interactions with the staff make the night memorable, and the food was great value for the variety of choice and flavours.
Quality of the food and service was great, was extremely disappointed with the portion of the starter. All three of us ordered Scallops at £9.50 per head, and we all received one Scallop, bit cheeky/pricey for one!
The quality of flavours of the food was excellent, the Roe Deer was exquisite......
Great little restaurant in the West End of Edinburgh. A good selection of tasty food for vegetarians on the evening of our visit. Friendly staff and good quiet atmosphere for intimate dining.
Good location, great food and exceptional service. Perfect date night find.
This little restaurant delivers big on flavor. Our server was delightful, food was very good, atmosphere was cozy and fairly quiet which was nice.
The food was incredible. I couldn’t fault the service or anything. We had a great night and would definitely go back.
Honestly one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Incredible food, flawless service, really cool atmosphere. Next time I'm in Edinburgh I'll absolutely be coming back.
Come every year and never disappoints, extremely good value and excellent quality of food.
