Amazing gem of a wee place for the best food and service - great for informal and special occasions alike. A top 5 in the city for me for more than 5 years now .. give it go!

Lovely waiting staff and unique set up of a restaurant, however I found it to have a damp smell. The food was unique and my main course of Guinea fowl was absolutely delicious

It was our first time at Forage and Chatter and our experience surpassed our expectations. The service was impeccable, everything we ate was perfectly done. Creative, delicious and light. And the layout of the restaurant created a lovely ambiance and seated quite a few people without being loud or feeling overcrowded.

Fantastic wedding anniversary lunch!
We had read great reviews of forage and chatter so decided to try it for our silver anniversary lunch as part of day trip to Edinburgh. We were welcomed with a complimentary glass of fizz for our anniversary, which was a lovely touch. We opted to mix and match items from the special lunch menu (which was very reasonable) with the a la carte menu and all courses were delicious, particularly the main course (duck). Our “host” was great & very helpful with wine recommendations. Would thoroughly recommend - hope to be back!

Excellent dinner, quality of the ingredients and flavorus were really on par with the best fine dining restaurants. Attentive, pleasant service and fair prices made it really a place to remember. Too bad it’s that far from London to be amongst our regular spots!

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.

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.
