Modern European
With the scenery of Edinburgh Castle and the Firth of Forth, the Forth Floor Restaurant at Harvey Nichols certainly has a sense of drama about it. The stylish elements of the decor, such as the circular lights which begin to glow red once the sky becomes darker, and the Scottish flavours found through the restaurant menu all inspire an adventurous dining experience with the finest quality food. Meanwhile, the brasserie makes for an enjoyable alternative, presenting a modern take on conventional European cuisine, and the extensive wine list includes over 350 different varieties of wines and champagnes. During the summer months, it is also possible to enjoy meals outside on the large terrace, overlooking all of Edinburgh.

We went here for our anniversary dinner and it was fantastic. We had asked for a table overlooking the city and they were more than accommodating. The view was fantastic! Our waitstaff was composed of three ladies that provided impeccable service. Hazel was our main waitress while being assisted by Analeese and a greek lady that we didn't get her name. We had the 5 course tasting menu that night and it was amazing which paired well with our wine. I would highly recommend Forth Floor to anyone wanting to have a sophisticated evening.

We were booked for the 5 course menu deal in the main restaurant. However, the day before our reservation, we were contacted directly by the restaurant to apologise that there had been 'a mix up in bookings' and that they could not accommodate us in the restaurant but offered to change our reservation to the Brasserie, which is adjacent to the Resraurant but with a different menu, to which we agreed. When we arrived we were shown to our table and given two complementary glasses of champagne as a token for inconvenience caused. We chose from the 3-course set menu, the food was was very good, well presented and excellent value. However, when the bill arrived, it included a charge for our 'complementary' drinks. When we questioned this with the waiter, his reaction was quite accusatory and not what we might have expected. Having gone away to check, he came back with a corrected and accurate bill. This is the reason for the low score for service.

Superb Meal with friends for a 50th birthday celebration and Fringe Show. From start to finish we couldn’t fault service and food was excellent. Great set menu for £35 for 3 courses and cocktail. The garlic loaf was delicious and an amuse busche of soup was beautiful. To top it off the festival fireworks came on which were amazing and they presented the birthday girl with a birthday cupcake. What a view. We’ll be back.

Across the board a very favorable experience;
I ordered the grilled vegetables and salmon salad and cheese plate. 3 course meal was good value and setting overlooking the city was perfect. I like that a cocktail was included in the 3 course meal

Lovely location and a good set menu though 2 of my friends were full after 2 courses on the 3 course set menu and asked to substitute desert for a drink but this was not allowed, which was a bit disappointing as the value of the requests was the same in monetary terms. I would still go back but it seemed a minor request from our perspective.

Came here to celebrate a birthday. My friend and I were given a table next to the window overlooking St Andrew Square, with a fantastic view of the Christmas ice rink, George Street and the castle. This really made the occasion feel special.
Every member of staff was very welcoming, friendly and helpful, and this created a lovely relaxed atmosphere. It was also jazz night, and we thoroughly enjoyed the music. Overall, the ambience was excellent.
The food was, without exception, absolutely outstanding. We both had starters and a main course from the festive menu, then coffee and miniature mince pies. These arrived on a large plate with “Happy Birthday” written round the edge in chocolate - a very nice touch. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted really delicious. We agreed that it was the best food either of us had eaten in a long while.

Very disappointed. Booked Lunch after receiving the email from Open table
to find out on arrival at Harvey Nicol's that the offer was invalid.

No attempt was made by them to rectify the situation.
The food was ok, however my glass of water came with a piece of blue kitchen roll floating in it.

Don't book, as you don't receive what you are expecting. Poor on both companies part .

A fashionable modern slightly glitzy environment, good ambience, but avoiding being too flashy. Menu not overcrowded yet offering good choice. Tables far enough apart, and a quite refined atmosphere. Service not too attentive, despite not being busy, but quite acceptable.

All-in-all a quite pleasant experience, and good value for the comfort, ambience and excellent cooked dishes.

I will return.

We can't understand why this restaurant was not busy - food lovely combinations of flavours and beautifully presented and service were both very very good. Stunning views as well. Staff were very helpful - asking us when we would like our food order placed and reminding us that we hadn 't placed an order for a starter when we were on a three course deal. Welcome cocktail was lovely and we were assured that something could probably be done if we didn't like it. We'll be back!
