                        Super restaurant à Édimbourg. Idéal un dimanche soir après un match de rugby. Très bonne ambiance. Un service de qualité. Une cuisine originale.

                        We really enjoyed our meal here, the recipes were familiar classics but had been thoughtfully rejuvenated with delicate flavour combinations and little twists here and there. The staff were fantastic, very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Thanks to our party being quite chatty and young, we really enjoyed watching the busy service in the kitchen but would recommend requesting a table in the front for parties who have guests that are hard of hearing or find too much noise over-stimulating.

                        We had a wonderful evening meal in New Chapter. The restaurant is in a more residential area than we were expecting - about 25 minute walk from Edinburgh centre where we were staying but it was worth the walk. The food was amazing - everything is presented so well and tastes wonderful! The only downfall was that we were never asked if we wanted dessert (which we really did!). We eventually got the servers attention and ordered some really lovely dessert but we almost missed out on this! Would be nice to have a cocktail menu also but the wine list was extensive. Overall I would definitely recommend New Chapter.

                        New Chapter is a small but nicely laid out restaurant. The menu was varied and the choices of dishes was excellent. The food itself was wonderful and the service fantastic. Shame their was no cocktail menu, but the drinks list was very good.

                        New Chapter is great. I must go more often. Excellent scallops, fabulous lamb, and very friendly staff who seem happy in their jobs. It’s great that they have such a good selection of wine by the carafe.

                        Our friends had recommended the New Chapter as a place with amazing food and service and we were not disappointed. All our food was cooked perfectly and tasted fantastic The wine was at a reasonable price and the servers were at hand through out the night. we all enjoyed the background music which was mellow and relaxing The restaurant began to get busier with bookings as the evening went on which is a great sign. We would definitely go to this restaurant again.

                        Thoroughly enjoyable lunch with nice touches. on the set lunch menu it is worth being a bit adventurous. When I lunched it was busy but not full. The front of house staff were all pleasant and helpful. I shall certainly be back As I have only lunched here I have no experience of all the categories above and have limited my marks accordingly

                        Outstanding! This was my second time in New Chapter and was not disappointed to go back. Food is amazing and reasonably priced. The service is good and very friendly. It is just around the corner so I will be going back. PS: I had had mackerel in my first visit and it was superb! Unfortunately, it wasn't in the menu this time. I am hoping it is seasonal and will be back in the menu.

                        Recently returned to New Chapter for lunch. Excellent as before. Great value and friendly servive. Starters of pate and hot smoked salmon were delicious as were mains of lamb & hake. Food was beautifully presented. The only thing I would say is the pesto herby dip was very salty as were the chips. I don't usually put salt on chips and lots of people don't use salt for medical reasons. I would leave it to the customer as there was salt on the table. Wouldn't stop me returning though.

                        2nd visit after we visited last time we were in Edinburgh. As always the food was amazing, so much flavour and presented perfectly. Plus it feels like I’m robbing them because it’s so cheap. Really friendly and helpful staff. The only downside is we live over 150 miles away so can’t visit as often as we’d like.

                        Place with a good reputation. Meals seem to be preprepared days in advance. As I have a dairy allergy I was dissapointed they gave me just option of 1 for my mains and steak which is not highly imaginative. Have had much better efforts from just about everywhere I have been so was surprised and dissapointed. The service was great, just the chef lacked freedom or imagination.

                        Would have been lovely as food and service was great but the 'confusion' over booking was a fly in the ointment. We had booked on line through open table, and it felt like our booking for our son's 21st was not treated with due diligence. Were given a terrible table by the door away from the main body of restaurant which.would have been fine had we been a drop in.but having booked 4 weeks in advance and stated it was for a special occasion had expected better. Has put me off booking through open table again unfortunately

                        Had the lunch menu here. Everything was great from the soup through to lamb for the main course. The mille feuille was a little over done. Excellent service not stuffy and very busy. Particularly good was our waitress who hadn't been working there very long. Would definitely go next time we are up in Edinburgh.

                        We gad an enjoyable meal and would recommend. We took smoked salmon, venison tartare and scallops to start and all were excellent. For mains we took partridge, hake an lamb. All were excellent and good portion sizes. The hake is especially recommended. The lemon curd dessert was also really good. Wine was ok. The only issue we had was the wrong main came out for 1 of us. Aside from that everything was excellent and we’d happily return if in the area. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is nice.

                        Located in a quiet street this wee find was a pleasant surprise. Excellent salt cod and smoked salmon (2 starters) and excellent lamb could have been hotter but otherwise very good plate. Apple dessert was disappointing. Service excellent.
