Forage & Chatter
Great service in a warm, friendly environment. Nicely thought-out food, with a nice blend of textures and flavour layers.
Great food although the service was very underwhelming
Good food great company. Service slow, payment could not be made at the table overall good
Creative food with topnotch ingredients in lovely environment but small portions for high cost.
Lovely birthday dinner, great service, fantastic food
We return to Edinburgh every 3 or 4 months and this is a must go restaurant for us. The food and service are fantastic and it is a great atmosphere. When you want to sit and talk it is quiet and the staff always are attentive.
If can be paid by card it would be perfect. Had to run into rain to get cash...
Otherwise it was a good meal.
They served some of the most delicious food Ive ever eaten. Very friendly/high standard of service, too. The dessert was the highlight of the day. Booking is a must! @ Forage & Chatter
We arrived to a warm welcome and were shown to our table. Lovely atmosphere and the food was delicious. All the staff were very attentive and took care of our every need. We will definitely return.
Very friendly staff, nice restaurant and outstanding food!
I am reluctant to recommend Forage and Chatter.... as I think it is perfect as it is! Perhaps if it becomes more popular then things might change?
In all seriousness this was probably the best (quality or value) lunch I've had in Edinburgh.
p.s. The service staff are amazing
Very unusual ‘below stairs’ venue and quirky little rooms. Great service and delicious food. In particular the stone bass starter with strawberries, radish and apricot was superb.
Food was of an extremely high standard. Very delicate flavours and beautifully presented. Service was excellent, low key and attentive. Definitely recommend and have already done so!
Forage & Chatter is a wonderful small restaurant in a Georgian building. The staff were very attentive and knew all of the menu items in detail. All food items are locally sourced and prepared to perfection. Would highly recommend for dinner
An excellent restaurant in a very convenient location. With interesting and well cooked food and superb service partaken in a cosy atmosphere, the evening was most enjoyable. The only minor snag on this particular occasion was a rather loud party at a nearby table.
Dinner for 3 of us. We all enjoyed starters and main courses. Beautifully presented and amazing textures and flavours. Would definitely go back.
Always a pleasure to visit Forage & Chatter.
The staff are friendly and welcoming and the food is excellent.
Very good restaurant with high level cuisine. We were delighted!
From start to finish, the service, food and general ambience of the restaurant was excellent.
As usual lunch was first class. Although there’s a limited choice on the set lunch menu - 2 starters and 3 mains - I’ve always been spoiled for choice and never been disappointed. The warm little bread buns with yoghurt butter and pesto - delicious before/with your starter. Today I had the pea veloute with asparagus which was sublime. The other starter of pork belly was beautifully presented and delicious too. My main course of partridge and broccoli was succulent and moreish. The other choices were fish or risotto which none of us had.
With 2 courses for less than £18 I think this is great value for money. The quality of food here is consistently very good.
Absolutely outstanding, the staff and food was incredible. Would definitely recommend!
Lovely restaurant attended for anniversary dinner ,recommended to us by local hotelier
Food fantastic could find no fault ,above our expectations
Staff attentive but not intrusive and knowledgeable about dishes available.
Will dine here again
Problem with card machine restaurant rang prior to our arrival to notify us of this.
Was a wonderful evening from start to finish, the team are first class and the food is too. Amazing flavours and textures. Until the next time
Received call in the morning to say card machine broken; not ideal as my client was picking up the tab so I had to pre warn him. On arrival I discovered (only after asking) that only the very limited set lunch was being served due to a problem with the freezers. I’ve eaten here before and chose it because of the range available on the a la carte. Why not tell me customers when phoning about the machine? Set lunch is great for quick meal with friends but not a business get together. Initial welcome was curt but the chap who served us read my irritation/disappointment and put a lot of effort into making it a pleasant meal. Smiling and attentive service went a long way to righting things!
Sophisticated cooking, pleasant ambience and friendly staff but rather expensive, partly as it’s in a basement, however nice the renovation and decor.
Great food and service, at really quite reasonable prices. Thanks for a great evening.
À wonderful dîner, one of the best in Edenburgh. All was very fine, WE enjoyed à lot.
We had a wonderful dinner. The food was a feast for the eyes and delicious. The service though was uneven. Our server was “cold” and we had to ask for silverware on two different occasions. I bit more attention to guests is needed.
We have already recommended Forage and Chatter to friends and family. We have been there several times and our daughter has been once. The food is excellent - different without being ostentatious, and beautifully presented. The staff are always pleasant and helpful with just the right amount of attention.
Went for a PhD graduation celebratory lunch. Could not be more pleased with the taste, textures and attention to detail for all our meals. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a REALLY good food experience. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Edinburgh.
My husband and I went to Forage & Chatter to celebrate his birthday, and it was such a spectacular experience. We’re vegetarian and every dish was exceptional. The service was impeccable. We asked for a great table and they gave us this beautiful corner seat. Everything about the evening was so incredible! Can’t recommend enough!
This restaurant has been on my list for quite some time now. I suppose I had heightened expectations as it’s such a challenge to get in! The service and the ambiance were wonderful, and the dinner looked amazing. However, it fell significantly short of expectations. The flavour was distinctly lacking, and the pigeon breast was tough and chewy. For a restaurant that’s almost Michelin grade, I was definitely let down.
Great menu choices, delicious food, faultless friendly service, made for a most enjoyable evening. I had to book three weeks in advance to get a table, but it was well worth the wait. I would highly recommend this lovely restaurant.
Beautiful relaxed restaurant with the perfect service and fresh lovely flavours in the menu
This dining experience was faultless from start to finish, superb food beautifully presented with a service level surpassing all the Michelin establishments we tried during our week long stay, incredible value for money, knowledgeable staff, this place has it all.
Service excellent...food portions disappointing.
Shame the lunch menu has been cancelled. Lamb a little overcooked. Service was excellent.
Some very innovative items on the menu.
My husband and I both absolutely loved out meal here. The service was outstanding, the menu was explained well, and the food is so inventive, fresh, and just plain delicious. You can tell that the chef really cares about what he presents to his clientele. I would recommend this restaurant highly.
Really enjoyed our experience and will be back; ingredients were fresh and lovingly treated; excellent service, and for a 3 course meal with pre-drinks, wine, coffee etc we thought this was actually pretty good value. Be interesting to go again in a different season (which we will!).
Yes, an enjoyable meal with attentive service and pleasant ambience.
Only down side was the card machine was not working and had to get enough cash to pay bill.
