The restaurant appearance and design was great. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was great and the great value was surprising. The service had a rough start. After being seated by a great hostess and given menus and water by her, we had to wave someone down after 15 minutes to order not only our drinks but by then our food. When we received our bread, we had to ask for butter from three different individuals before it arrived with the appetizers. After that the service was great and attentive. As mentioned the food was good and the presentation was great.

My son took me out for dinner and the staff were so lovely to us both and we both really enjoyed the food and drinks. The food is to a very high standard and go on a Sunday if you want an excellent Sunday roast at restaurant quality. I considered it good value for money. Don’t be put off by it being inside a hotel either, it’s not a typical hotel restaurant with mass produced food it’s a high quality restaurant in its own right.

Staff were very friendly. Unfortunately the service did not run smoothly. Waitress wasn’t familiar with menu. Pre-dinner drinks did not appear at the same time.
Meal was potentially very good. However the tartare sauce to accompany the crab lacked any bite or flavour. Something missing there. The quail starter with celeriac was more quail with sweet corn and a hint of celeriac. Both the starters of steak tartare and ham hough were excellent.
Our mains were ok however the sirloin steak was a tough job to cut and not med/rare by any means.
Sweets were very good.
Overall an average dinner considering the top end price.
Still trying to work out the “Grazing” concept.

Very average by Edinburgh standards. Sadly below our expectations. The quality and choice of food was ordinary..I had fish pie - nothing spectacular!
Husband had pork belly which was good but nothing special.

Our main disappointment was the proximity of a table for two being so close to other diners...quite awful. The couple next to us overheard our conversation at one point and asked us a question!

Martina was exemplary at looking after us, but we had trouble trying to get the attention of front of house to pay our bill and collect our coats.

Won’t be back as it wasn’t a good experience!

Decided to try the Grazing sharing menu for 2. We opted for the BBQ Shiitake mushroom starter followed by the Cote de Boeuf, with a couple of sides - Ugly pots and green beans. The starter drew lots of looks from fellow diners as it was the most bizarre looking thing - not the prettiest starter but was very tasty. The beef was cooked perfectly for us. Couldn't manage desserts so opted for coffees and these arrived with lovely slabs of caramel choc (homemade). All the staff we came across were a delight and especially Giuseppe who was our waiter. A really lovely guy who was attentive without being intrusive. We both enjoyed our chats with him. The main menu also has a good variety of dishes as well as a separate one advertising Sunday lunch along with cheaper dining options as well.

Actually this restaurant is no longer Galvin - it’s been gone for a month now. Unremarkable and can’t even remember the name. It’s part of the Waldorf Astoria hotel - they did a bait and switch. Still working out the kinks, service was really spotty. Thing is if you are a server you have to remember what your customer tells you. It’s the basic requirement of the job!

Arrived and excited and given lovely table. Restaurant was nice and good feel but they were clearly busy and service slow. Ran out if things quickly and by the time my husbands main came it was very small compared to other portions we had seen earlier! I think he had all that was left and the end of the venison! Overall good though.

Lunch tine menu was great. Good variety of dishes and we could not resist tasting each others food. All were great. Good wine selection relaxed atmosphere . Not too noisy despite a reasonably full restaurant we were all able to hear ourselves talk. Highly recommend if you are looking for a nice lunch on a cold day in Edinburgh.

I booked a table for one for the New Year's Eve menu and arrived at 6pm as the first guest. The service was very friendly and very fast. Almost a little too fast for my taste because I was finished with the three courses after less than 50 minutes. However, there was no pressure from the staff, I could have stayed longer. The food was very good, cooked to perfection and every piece made sense. On the downside I have to mention the poor Whisky list and only few wines by glass (which is an issue if you are by yourself). The price was elevated but acceptable for the time of year, however, I had equally good food for less money in other places.

Regretfully the lady at the front kept us waiting almost 1 hour, claiming “your table is being set”. She kept us at the hotel lobby until we requested a table and were finally seated. From then on the meal was delicious!

We have been to Galvin Brasserie De Luxe on a number of occasions and have always liked the ambience friendly service and good food. On this occasion the restaurant seemed a bit understaffed. We had an itison deal of Chateaubriand and a bottle of wine but waited 20 minutes after being seated before our order was taken and then another 10 minutes before we got our wine, we were at our table for an hour before we got our food. Staff were apologetic, I think we were just unlucky with our timing.

Very slow service, had to remind them we were there. Food was good but not as good as prior visits. Fish was a touch over cooked and the “shellfish emulsion” looked (and tasted) like a glob of flesh coloured paint. Lovely oysters though.

We had a great experience at Galvin Brasserie De Luxe. The food was extremely good. I had the snails to start followed by a ribeye steak which was cooked perfectly. I also had the panna cotta which was the daily special - that was good too. The service was efficient and friendly. Overall I really enjoyed it and would be happy to go back.

We were looking forward to the Chateaubriand special which we had to order when we made our reservation. My daughter and I shared it, and they recommended cooking it to "medium rare" which is just how we like it. They also suggested we order a starter since the cooking time would be 45 minutes. Our shared starters were Heirloom Tomatoes with Sardines (a few very tiny slices of tomato), and Crab with Mayonnaise which was excellent. Unfortunately, the Chateaubriand arrived extremely rare with a cool, dark red center. I would have liked to send it back, but it was very difficult to get the attention of the waitstaff. It was tender, but lacked overall flavor. The table next to us ordered the same, and theirs arrived cooked to the perfect temperature. My husband ordered the Langoustines, and they were delicious; tender, sweet, and nicely grilled. Service overall was lacking, and the floor manager seemed to be training the staff as they struggled to serve the patrons. Overall, a very disappointing meal.

Drinks are extremely overpriced. 15 pounds for scotch whisky (bought for 5 pounds everywhere else in Edinburgh) is outrageous. Very disappointed. Even sparkling water is expensive. Place is so-so. Avoid.

Just too rushed. Good food, but service was off. We asked for a 20min brrak between starter and main, but it was rushed out in about 7 mins... Maybe catering for US tourists, but not for us?? Such a shame as the food was good, but not a patch on the service standard of galvins in london.

The menu for this restaurant looked amazing, scallops, langoustine, steak, all things we love. The scallops were £20, and on asking how many scallops were served, we were advised 2. So we passed on those and opted for chicken consomme and crab starters. The crab was excellent, the consomme was pleasant. No salt and pepper on table, which I know some people don't mind but we prefer the choice. For main, I chose monkfish tail and my partner a fillet steak. The monkfish looked amazing but arrived cold, and I mean chilled to the touch, as if not quite defrosted. So I asked for it to be heated up. The staff member brought it back while my partner ate his very good steak. They did apologise, but no other concession was offered in terms of a free drink or similar, which may have assured our repeat business. The cocktails were good (£16), the dessert good, the cost bordering on prohibitive. For these reasons, we are unlikely to return.

I used to go here a lot, but for various reasons am no longer a frequent visitor.
All ok, but they were silly about the reservation made through OT and confirmed the previous day for 2.15. On the day they insisted it had to be for 2 p.m. or earlier because, I assume they weren't very busy. In terms of the time involved, unnecessary and irritating
