Forage & Chatter
Delicious food for a perfect evening
Wir waren zum 1.Mal in diesem Restaurant und müssen sagen, es war speziell. Uns war bewusst, dass wir nur eine begrenzte Zeit zum Essen hatten. Kaum dass wir saßen, sollten wir unsere Getränkewünsche nennen. Und so ging das weiter. Wir sind gute Restaurants gewohnt, auch solche, die im Michelin Guide aufgeführt sind. Aber der Service hier war unterirdisch, einfach nur schlecht. Wir waren zu viert. Kaum, dass einer den Teller leer hatte, wurde er weggenommen, egal ob die Anderen noch mit Essen beschäftigt waren. Der Clou aber war, dass die Bedienung am Ende unsere Weingläser abräumen wollte. Leider war der Letzte noch nicht fertig. Trotzdem riss sie es ihm aus der Hand und nahm es mit. Sorry, aber das geht gar nicht.
Das Essen war vorzüglich, nur gehört zu einem Restaurant mit diesem Anspruch auch der entsprechende Service. Da müsst ihr noch ganz viel üben....
Had a really excellent meal in a very cosy and impressive environment. The staff were very warm and attentive and went the extra mile to make the occasion which was a birthday celebration just that little bit more special. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent dinner, service and ambience.
Was the highlight meal during our stay in Edinburgh!! Would definitely recommend !
It is simple i find very few live to there hype this one did
A beautiful meal from start to finish. Service was friendly and efficient, we never felt rushed. Mackerel and duck starters were shared and enjoyed equally; the mackerel dish was light, refreshing and full of flavour, the duck rillettes soft and flavoursome with perfect accompanying fig and walnut. Roe deer main course was fantastic, rich but well balanced, beautifully seasoned and delicious; my only small criticism would be that the sauce with the main course was so delicious that we would have loved more of it! Well priced selection of wines. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant and I look forward to returning.
Was disappointed by the food, which has been good in the past. Pork crackling inedible.
Great service, seasonal produce handled with the outmost care and love for creating good food. Just a lovely place.
What can I say everything was superd from the food to the service can highly recommend a visit to this restaurant
Very nice restaurant. Made a reservation from the Netherlands 4 weeks ago. Reviews where great so we got curieus. The food was amasing good and also the wine we chose was good and even afforadable. The staff was very friendly and they all could tell us more about the food and the ingredients.
What a treat, Great food Great service Great selection of wine beer and spirits. Couldn’t ask for anything more. Thanks guys
Excellent food and service as always. Worth every penny
Excellent meal ... lovely atmosphere ... terrific service
Specializing in Locally sourced food
This restaurant is superb! The owner comes to your table frequently to serve and check in on you. The food was excellent and the atmosphere excellent. We will be back!
Can’t praise this restaurant enough. Attentive and made to feel special from arrival to departure. Food first class. A special place.
Fabulous food! Will return.
The restaurant is beautiful, simple and cozy. The service is good and the staff was very cordial and efficient. Loved it.
Lovely decor, every course was tasty and the time menu was excellent value. Service very good too. Will be back!
We are traveling from the US and stayed nearby. The food and service by our server Kristi was excellent. Fresh local ingredients make for a unique and menu.
At first, I wasn't sure why it was necessary to make a reservation – we had tried stopping in off the street and were told we needed to book. But once we went a second time, having reserved in advance, it made sense. The hospitality is second to none: the staff are kind, attentive, and helpful, and make sure that guests are treated very well. The food is superb; of particular note were the rillettes as a starter and the red deer for the main course, though everything we tried was fantastic. We'd gladly come back. It's a beautiful venue, tucked away off the street and underground. I'm glad we found this gem!
Thank you - the whole evening was a pleasure! Food was outstanding, staff just great, we had a perfect time!!
Excellent food and wine, as ever in a relaxing environment.
Great restaurant with a varied menu. Food was excellent particularly the fish and desert. Staff very attentive and knowledgeable
Really good food. I will definetly go back next time I'm in Edinburgh
Outstanding on all levels. Had done extensive research on restaurants in Edinburgh for an upcoming trip and found Forage & Chatter. Did not disappoint. The service and food were absolutely outstanding. Fresh, creative and delicious...could not ask for more.
Lovely early evening table - food was delicious, although would recommend having a side with the main (we did) as portions otherwise on the small side. Deep fried dough balls were to die for!
Disappointingly, didn't match its good reputation. Long wait for main course - belly pork chewy & cod overcooked especially under crust
First time at Forage & Chatter although tried a couple of times before at short notice. Well worth the wait, food was fantastic & service excellent too
Down the steps into a maze of intimate dining rooms. Friendly service (dried our sopping coats) and so to the innovative menu. We had fish - top quality cod and halibut followed tasty mackerel and monkfish starters. Everything had been carefully prepared and presented and we enjoyed a relaxed and memorable dinner.
The food was delicious, but they were very understaffed -- and while the 2 staff people working were literally running around, it still meant that food was very delayed, and we gave up on ordering additional drinks and dessert.
We had a fantastic anniversary meal here. Very friendly, attentive staff. The food was AMAZING!
We would definitely recommend you go.
One of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to. The staff was amazing and so nice. The food was delicious and the wine was fantastic.
The ambiance was great, service was great as well and food excellent though important to note that this is a Michelin rated restaurant so the food is on the "fancy" side (of course). Great for a romantic dinner/date.
Simple and very good meal. Service was attentive and the main server was friendly.
One of my favourite restaurants: I take different friends every time and they are always impressed.
Excellent meal wish the selection shown outside was what was offered on the day though
Cozy atmosphere. Interesting menu. Spelt risotto yummy Relaxing vibe.
Excellent food and service at this very cute restaurant in Edinburgh. Highly recommend.
The cured monkfish appetizer was outstanding-perfectly seasoned to bring out the delicate fish flavor. Food was expertly prepared and served. Recommend!
Excellent creative cooking and unusual wine list. Thoroughly recommend
Impeccable lunch, loved every minute and will definitely be back.
