The staff couldn’t do enough to ensure we enjoyed ourselves and had a great experience. The food was just amazing, it’s tasted delicious and looked fantastic. Great selection of cocktails and wines and if a drink wasn’t on the menu they would make it for you anyway.

Forage and Chatter is our favourite Edinburgh restaurant, in fact, nothing else comes close. Food and service are truly exceptional. When we visit we feel lucky, if not privileged, to be part of their journey to success.

I found this place as a "child friendly" search, it's not, child tolerant is closer, the people are nice enough, the food is trying, I do like creative menus but can't quite justify the price, starter and main for 2, 2 aperitif, 1 glass wine, some water £ 92 ?

Thoroughly enjoyed the food. However, was not that impressed with the service. Two of us were having lunch. My friend had finished her starter and I still had about two mouthfuls to take when the waitress came to take our plates. I had no sooner finished when she swiped my plate away almost immediately I put my cutlery on the plate. Our main courses were served in less than 5 minutes which did not give us time to recover from our starter. Unfortunately this spoilt our lunch.

Excellent Food very good combinations of different ingredients. Nice variety on the menu with something for everyone. Staff very attentive and efficient.
Venue had good ambience but some of the tables did seem a little oddly placed.
Only complaint was the wine was very average. Could do some more clever sourcing in my opinion.

The service was great. The food was ok, it looked fantastic but lacked flavour and seasoning! Definitely more style over substance. I didn’t get the “doughnut” style bread, it was very greasy and stodgy/heavy. All that said the dessert was outstanding.

This is a new favourite- delicious, beautifully cooked and presented food with delightful service. We went for a birthday and received dessert wine and petit fours as a surprise, which was a lovely touch and made it feel extra special. We are already recommending Forage and Chatter to friends and will be returning ourselves very soon.

We had great supper here a couple of nights ago. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very welcoming and all of the staff who served us were very friendly and helpful.
All of the food was beautifully prepared and presented and was delicious. Ahead of the main meal we had extremely tasty, warm bread rolls with pesto and special butter. For starters we had duck rillette and cured monkfish, for main course spelt risotto and the cod with shrimp, leeks and curry oil. For dessert we both had the mousse. Each of the courses was excellent and we would both go back without hesitation!
