    First time here after hearing how good it was from friends. We had a lovely brunch using an Itison voucher. Food excellent and well presented. Asked for extra hot latte and it was perfectly as asked. Definitely will return to try dessert next time

    Lovely environment, ambience and good croffles but service slow (especially given number of staff working) and toilets not very clean. Hot chocolate okay. Few tweaks and could be 5 star.

    Service was awful. Left standing at the door for over 5 mins without anyone acknowledging us. Waited 30mins to order. Again no acknowledgment of the delay. Food served quickly and was lovely however massively over priced. There was a couple next whose plates were not cleared and they had been sitting an hour. First time visiting and was not impressed, even my 10yr old daughter commented on how poor the service was.

    Disappointed with our visit . Had table booked for 1.15pm and arrived 10 mins before. Was told table wasn’t ready and we would have to come back. We could clearly see there were plenty free tables. Returning at 1.15pm we had to wait outside in the queue. 30 minutes before our order was taken , had to request that our table was cleared and could we have a look at the menu again. This was at 2.45pm!! At 3.15pm we had to ask for service and was told someone would be with us shortly !!! Two chocolate covered strawberries arrived as an apology for delay. More staff definitely required and the service charge should have been scrapped !! Doubt we’ll visit again

    My overall experience was pretty good. The food was great with nothing to complain about. The only issue was that we had to wait ages to be seated even though we had a booking, plus after that we had to wait ages to be served and get our food. But would overall rate this restaurant and would definitely return soon.

    Running late but no answer on the phone. Took a while to be seated. Left a while without taking an order, had to ask for them to take the order (was there for approx 40 minutes before order was taken). Food and drink quite quick to come after this and tasted delicious. Had the best of both croffle which was very tasty. Daughter had the cotton candy sundae which looked and tasted amazing. Very instgrammable food. Mocktails really good too. Club sandwich was a bit of a let down, not much filling. Had a Wowcher voucher for 2 mocktails and desserts. Without this It would have been VERY expensive for what it was, however as a treat it was a nice experience.

    My husband brought me for my birthday, we had a table booked for 11 but stood outside waiting to be seated for what felt like ages before anyone acknowledged us. Placed our drinks and food order, both were lovely, we sat for 35 minutes after we had finished our brunch before eventually my husband had to go and ask if we could order something else, anyway another 20 minutes passed and no one came so eventually he got up and had to go and ask for the bill. I appreciate it was busy however it just kind of ruined the whole experience

    Beautiful,spotless restaurant. We had to wait ages for our orders to be taken,then for the food to come. We had to ask for everything,salt,sugar,spoons etc. We had full breakfasts,the food quality was poor and it was cold. Lovely surroundings but I wouldn’t go back. The staff were all pleasant but not on the ball at all.

    Start with positive, the food was good and well presented. Negatives though, service was terrible. Seated for 30 mins before order taken, serving staff seemed to not have a clue, dishes arrived at different times so when we got my daughters food everyone else was done. We saw one plate taken to another table in error and server just returned it to the pass where it sat for 10 more mins until the manager gave it to a guy sitting at the bar area right next to it. Kitchen staff unorganised with dishes going out to tables at different times. Pretty poor. Manager gave us 15%off and refunded 2 of the meals. For the price, I expected better. But again, food was good and for a one off treat it was fine but wouldn't rush back.

    We visited Haute Dolci for the first time, they had a super selection of sweet treats and a good selection of sandwiches for lunch. We enjoyed our sweet treats - croffle and waffles, we also enjoyed two of their mocktails which were very flavoursome. We also both had a sandwich, the sandwiches were large and filling and could have been shared instead of us having a sandwich each. Sandwiches were tasty. Thoroughly enjoyed and will return.

    Overpriced! low-quality deserts with nothing going for it. Staff nice enough, place looks nice but that's as good as it gets. £90 for 3 deserts and 4 drinks for the same quality you can get at a supermarket. Not for us!

    Gorgeous place to have some beautiful desserts. I got an itison vochure which I had no problems booking with. The service is fantastic with the servers not being in your face especially while eating but still attentive enough. The drinks are superb with just enough variety. I will be booking again with my daughter as there is Milkshakes which we are looking forward to trying and a few more things on the menu. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for somewhere nicer than just your usual run of the mill dessert place.

    The setting is luxurious with impressive windows showcasing Edinburgh.. The menu is vast and we ordered croffles (biscoff and berry) and eggs benedict. The salted caramel ice cream was the greatest ice cream I’ve ever tasted! The staff were all friendly and accessible. The food service was within a reasonable time frame (not that you mind sitting in lovely surroundings) and it was a lovely, decadent treat! Would wholeheartedly recommend

    I’m glad we had the idea of having our meal then making our way to Haute Dolci for dessert rather than having a mediocre dessert at a standard restaurant. We loved the whole experience and would definitely do it again. It was a glorious treat.

    Very over priced for what you get. Nice enough food and we had children in our party and felt very judged and not particularly welcome. We had a party of 5 and were seated at a tiny table. Lovely food but I definitely won't be visiting again.
