I have been a regular here since the restaurant opened and have always had a good time. The food is excellent, great value, the staff friendly and efficient. Cameron runs a really excellent restaurant and Forage & Chatter thoroughly deserves its Trip Advisor rating. Enjoy.

All the dishes we had were delicious, service was excellent however there was a long pause between starter and mains and as our kids were “expiring” we couldn’t stay for dessert. Next time!

Food is exquisite and atmosphere relaxed, staff very friendly and knowledgeable of dishes and wine. We were a a group of 3 , up from London. Can't remember eating a better meal /wine for such a reasonable price in a long time. Would highly recommend this restaurant and return again when we are next in Edinburgh.

The food was very good, particularly the mains (cod & pork fillet). Good wine list too. The service was fair although slightly odd when we asked if we could order our food with our drinks and got a response of “there’s a structure to follow so I’ll have to come back soon for food orders”. Never heard that one before! Would recommend as a treat.

Outstanding food and service here. Would come here again if ever in Edinburgh. The hot fresh rolls with a choice of pesto and yogurt butter were to die for. I had fennel and artichoke salad with homemade ricotta cheese and my husband had lamb sweet breads— orgasmic

Nice handcraft. Meat pretty tough tho, not very tender. Only students working which was noticeable as they weren’t very talented waiters. Good place but not number 5 in Edinburgh as per on of the biggest travel guides/reviews online.

We had an excellent meal at Forage and Chatter. The food was exceptional. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. Despite the high quality of food, the restaurant was neither pretentious nor too expensive. A three course meal for two including wine and coffee was just over 100.

Prices could be dropped about 10%. Small portions, relatively high prices f.ex. 3.50 for 4 small steamed potatoes?

Requested a seat in the conservatory which had a nice out door atmosphere and was air conditioned so in the hot weather wasn’t too hot . Food was excellent and portion size just right .

The food at Forage & Chatter was delightful and tasty. The opening courses were spare, while our mains were quite large.

My only real complaint was the service. While our servers were very nice, they were extremely slow. We'd told them up front what time we had to leave -- it was over an hour's time from ordering -- and we still were late getting out. Even asking for the bill took a long time to achieve. So prepare to have a leisurely meal, whether you wanted to or not.

Great food, service and ambiance. We were on vacation in Edinburgh and wanted to have a nice dinner out. Forage and Chatter was perfect. All of us ordered vegetarian based dishes, the risotto and the potato entree, and they were both delicious. The service was great, everyone that helped us was outstanding.

The food was amazing. While it's a bit more expensive than some, the quality is so good, so the value for your money is fantastic. The food is just so good, and the portion sizes aren't crazy but still quite filling. The ambience of the restaurant is so cozy and warm; it just has that beautiful sentiment to make it a wonderful night. And the wait staff is incredibly attentive. I would recommend this place to anyone!
