    I love the burgers and chips at Luxford. Best Burgers and Chips in Edinburgh in my opinion. However, St Leonards now does so many deliveries that, as a sit in customer, you feel like an after thought. Staff are so busy putting orders in bags and signalling to delivery guys outside that you can feel ignored. My recent visit was made worse by the fact that thre was no heating on. 1st of February! Edinburgh! It was freezing! Other custiomers walked out because it was so cold. If we weren't in a rush we would have too. Would I recommned it to a friend? I'd love to say 'yes' because of the great food, but given everything else outlined above? I don't think I could.

    The food tasted nice but was nowhere hot enough (both burger and chips). Reason? Too much focus on takeaway orders IMO but realise that's an essential income stream. Shouldn't be at the expense of the customer in the restaurant. Had the food been hotter then 'nice' would have been changed to 'excellent'. Need to figure out the service but potential for a cracking place to eat.

    Seriously fantastic burgers. Our party had a mix of vegan and chicken: everyone said they were one of the best they’ve ever had! Fab, friendly and kind service from the team. We were there early (5pm) so no one else there and so no vibe - the constant stream of delivery riders was a bit of a drag. And the playlist was only 6 songs so we heard it 3 times in the hour we were there! Also surprised there were no kids options as the burgers are HUGE. But those are all minor things to get your mouth round one of the best burgers in Scotland.

    Service was friendly but the restaurant was extremely busy with fulfilling delivery orders making service quite slow. I felt sorry for the waiter, he was constantly making delivery drinks. The burger was fine but nothing special. The fries were oily and far too salty. A strong smell of oil in the air also.

    Need to toast the buns. The buns for our burgers weren't toasted and should really be toasted, would prevent the bun bread getting too soggy from the sauce.

    Upon arrival I was surprised that there was no one to greet you or to show you to a table. So we walked through to the bar and told the man we had a booking, I apologised as we were 10 minutes late, but I did try and call the restaurant twice and the line was engaged, his response was “what’s your name” he checked the booking then pointed to a table to the left of the bar and said “sit there” it then took over 10 minutes for someone to come over and ask if we wanted drinks and to take our order. Once our food arrived, the young girl waitress was a lot friendlier and more polite. She checked on us a couple of times and ensured we were enjoying the food. So far, Luxford burgers are the best burgers I can find in Edinburgh and the service at the restaurant really put me off attending again. Very disappointing as I used to be a chef and I know the level of service guests should receive and the service we received was poor.

    Hi Vicky, I'm so sorry to hear about your experience last month and we certainly do not condone behaviour of the nature that you describe. We have investigated and we'd love to speak to you further about this incident and show you what we can do to rectify it - my email address is alex@luxfordburgers.co.uk. Speak soon!

    Luxford Burgers and Lounge BarResponded on 25 October 2023
    Hi Paul, thank you for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed the burgers and fries. Apologies for not offering starters, however we do have a large 'sides' menu including Halloumi Fries, Southern-Fried Chicken Tenders, Onion Rings, etc., that could have sufficed! Hope to see you again soon.

    Visited with 3 friends for first time on Saturday for early burgers before theatre. Two friends had beef patties, two had chicken. Everyone said how much they enjoyed their burger. All were delicious and one friend suggested was best burger ever tasted. Chicken burgers are all thigh meat, meaning the meat remains moist and tender. Prices are for burgers alone. We shared two portions of fries between 4. These were also delicious. Definitely a return visit on the cards for us burger lovers......

    Food here was outstanding as always. So tasty. Staff were lovely and very attentive and knowledgeable on menu. Only gripe was that my friend and I were the only diners in the restaurant for the hour we were there and while the window table we were put at had a beautiful view, it was quite squashed and not much space. I found £12 for a large glass of white wine quite steep also, however, this didn't take away from the amazing food and great staff. Would definitely return!

    We were really looking forward to eating here but it was a massive let down. Our food took an hour to be served and was lukewarm at best. It was clear they focus their efforts on takeaway orders rather than customers in the restaurant. We won’t be back in a hurry.

    Burgers expensive for what they are, a bit of salad and a few chips on the plate would have made all the difference and made it an enjoyable meal experience. Atmosphere ruined by guys carrying bags of rolls and frozen chicken goujons passed our table throughout meal.

    Great burgers and lovely restaurant. Service was mostly great, but if busier in the restaurant they may have really struggled with one server managing all delivery orders as well as table service as it took a little time to get sauces and settle bill. However would definitely return as it’s a new family favourite!

    Next to no ambience. The restaurant was very cold (in temperature). There was no kids menu. There were almost no people in the restaurant on a Saturday at lunch time. The food was very good. The milkshakes might be the best in Edinburgh as well. If they could make the space a bit cosier, and the service more family friendly, they’d have a destination spot.

    If you're looking for tasty burgers and good beer you can't go wrong with luxford. I had the lost in translation burger which is chicken thighs with smashed avocado wasabi paste and chilli mayo highly recommended also the Korean cauliflower bites are tremendous and for dessert you need to try the alcoholic milkshake.
