This was the second time I’d been here for lunch recently and it was a lovely lunch on both occasions.

Great value and excellent quality from the lunch fixed price menu. Service is attentive but not obtrusive.

Now up there as one of my favourite lunch venues.

Food excellent. Service terrible - took over an hour for our main course to arrive. Therefore not practical as a business lunch venue.

I booked this for a solo lunch after seeing it in the Good Food Guide. When I was shown the fixed lunch menu I thought it was less imaginative than the samples on the website. How wrong I was! Asparagus cut in tiny slivers and then gently grilled, a miraculous poached egg, leek veloute poured over at the table, just a delight. Juicy cod served over a perfectly balanced smash of new potatoes and crunchy capers. Strawberries and cream defined by delicate meringue crumbs. Even an amuse-bouche of a deep-fried dough ball, herb pesto and mushroom-powder butter. Really incredible value at £17.95 for all that, and I highly recommend the Macedonian white wine too. I'll certainly be back.

Wonderful food, great service and lovely surroundings. The impromptu Happy Birthday plate that was presented to my girlfriend was a lovely touch. I've already recommended this fabulous place to a number of friends. We'll definitely come back again the next time were in Edinburgh. Many thanks.

The food and wine is fine, service is detailed, ambience is terrific. However, maybe the spot is too popular, may causeing lack of hand, waiting for order take a while, serving as well. If you're enjoying a long dinner with someone, this is your place, otherwise maybe there's a better choice.

Food and service were excellent. Only "complaint" is that the restaurant was too warm. If that was not the case I would have given it five stars across the board.

Our meal at Forage & Chatter was a wonderful experience. My husband and I went during our honeymoon trip. To celebrate, we were greeted with complimentary glasses of prosecco once seated at our table, and dessert was sent over at the end. The lamb was excellent, as was the gnocchi.

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.

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!
