From welcome to goodbye the experience was first class.food was excellent and staff knowledgeable and polite
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.
Very nice ambience, excellent cooking ,good value and a good wine list and a very friendly staff. Joanna Blythman was right this is a vg new restaurant.
Great service. Creative menu. Excellent presentation. Quite, intimate dining experience. Highly recommend
Food excellent. Service terrible - took over an hour for our main course to arrive. Therefore not practical as a business lunch venue.
We had an amazing evening and lovely food! The staff was friendly and helpful, we loved every minute. Highly recommend
Fantastic - my husband and I went there to celebrate our anniversary and we were speechless because the food was above any rating!
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 and great ambiance. And the staff is very friendly. Thank you.
This has become our favourite lunch time venue for myself and my friends. Everything is just perfect!
What a great wee gem this place Is! Smooth service and really delicious and well presents dishes. The pork jowl entree would be worth going back for!
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.
Everything was beyond my expectations and the service was great! Couldn’t have chosen a better place for birthday celebration!
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.
Extraordinary food and staff. Michelin quality at Avery reasonable price. If I was local then we would go here all the time!
Exceptional quality for a very reasonable price. We intent to go again.
Food was very good, especially the starters. My husband had chicken as main and he was not over exited about that but in general experience was nice. The service was friendly.
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.
Wonderful meal , creative thoughtful preparation of finest ingredients ! The pate is the best I have ever eaten and not to be missed. Friendly attentive staff . The wine list is very nice and not pretentious .
Fantastic in every way! The space, service, and food was all incredible!
Service was extremely slow but restaurant was quiet.
A great spot for lunch and incredible value when getting the set menu. Lovely staff and when the main took a little longer than expected they gave us a drink on the house. Would definitely recommend.
Lovely atmosphere and surroundings, extremely friendly and good service, but most importantly, delicious and unusual food.
Lovely meal with great service in a handy location
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.
We had an excellent, original and tasty healthy dinner with fresh ingredients and a lovely service. Would recommend it to everyone.
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.
The food was absolutely amazing. In comparison to London prices it's an absolute steal. The service is rather slow, but the food is worth the wait.
Brilliant restaurant, with fantastic service, exceptionally tasty and beautifully presented food, plus in a very central location. Must visit!
Fantastic restaurant food was out of this world service was also fantastic was my fiance's 30th birthday and they Surprise her with free wine and also decoration on the plate.
Fantastic food in a beautiful venue. Service was great. Would definitely recommend
Always a pleasure to visit Forage & Chatter. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly and welcoming. One of our favourite restaurants in Edinburgh. It’s certainly worth a visit and would suggest, for dinner, advance booking essential.
Das Essen war von der Vorspeise bis Dessert Dessert spitze. Kleine besondere Karte, sehr netter Service, kann man nur weiterempfehlen.
Food was amazing staff where very polite and professional
This place is absolutely fabulous and a hidden gem
Wonderful service and delicious food! We’ll certainly be returning.
What can I say, superb lunch, exemplary service (again, thanks Harry!) second week in a row and everything on point. Highly recommended.
Had a lovely evening at Forage and Chatter. The food was lovely and service fantastic. They were brilliant in discussing my dietary requirements and, for a change, I didn’t feel like I was missing out. The decor made in feel very relaxed. Thank you!
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!
Had a wonderful evening! The staff is very warm and friendly. The service is far over "normal" . Thank you for being your guests.
