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.

An excellent meal in very pleasant surroundings and pleasant staff.
Quality of the food was very good and imaginative.
As it was a birthday celebration the complimentary glass of wine was a nice touch.

I chose this restaurant from positive customer reviews, and found the recommendations were all true. The dishes were inventive and well prepared, with some unexpected but very successful combinations of flavours. The menu is not huge, as the chef clearly concentrates on his strengths, but still has enough variety to provide plenty of options. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening, helped by great music!

Used a gift voucher given last Christmas.Meal was superb. Unusual choice of soup ingredients (black pudding and apple included!)- very tasty. Husband enjoyed salmon starter. Steak beautifully cooked. Efficient service by friendly but not overbearing staff. Good value for city dining. Would highly recommend.

Outstanding food and attentive service in a friendly laidback atmosphere - The New Chapter really does tick all the boxes for anyone wanting to eat food of the very highest quality, but without the stuffy atmosphere that is seemingly a feature of most restaurants hunting for those elusive Michelin stars. Our host was welcoming and knowledgeable. The wine list was short but with just enough choice to find something to meet our taste - perhaps this is the one area where the restaurant could be a bit braver and instead of offering multiple choices of the more obvious wine styles, could hunt out a few more low volume gems that would offer the same surprise and delight as the food. And so to the food, which really was the star of the show. Every dish was well thought out and beautifully balanced, allowing the freshness of the ingredients to shine through. Fish was cooked to perfection and even a foam executed with flavour - a skill which eludes many a talented chef! Finally, it would be wrong to end this review without a special mention for dessert, which was just as good as the previous courses (the test of a truly great eatery!). Beautifully executed and not too sweet, leaving us with huge smiles and the difficult task of trying to work out when we could make the 300 mile round trip to visit again.

I went here for Date Night with my partner of 5 years. We had a fantastic evening! The food was great, so was the wine! We were very well looked after by the staff but not too bothered or interrupted by them, The service was very fast but not rushed. Overall it was a great experience. New Chapter came highly recommended and it did not disappoint! I will definitely return! Thank you so much!

We had a great time at New Chapter celebrating our anniversary. The food was divine! Had the beet terrine-wow! The cauliflower soup was good, just needed a bit of salt. Had the lamb and hake and ate every bit. They even did a surprise dessert and wrote "Happy Anniversary" on it. We went out of our way to try New Chapter while in Edinburgh and it was well worth it!

Family lunch at New Chapter all agreed had been perfect choice. Various dietary requirements were handled with ease and everyone was able to make a choice from the set menu. Service was excellent but the food definitely won the day. Innovative menu, beautifully presented and all courses tasted wonderful what more could you ask, excellent value and we will be sure to return.

What a lovely way to spend a cold, windy, Friday afternoon in August, with friends enjoying all that is on offer at New Chapter. We all thought everything about our lunch was superb. We have been here many times now with different friends and family and are never disappointed. Please, please keep up the great service.

Worth venturing off the beaten track for. The steak was delicious and cooked to perfection - as was the lamb. Very good value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant and it was one of the best meals we had in Edinburgh in this price range.

My friend and I had dinner at New Chapter during our theee days in Edinburgh. It was by far one of the best meals I've had in years. The food was delicious, creative and beautiful. My friend had scallops for a starter and the presentation was exquisite. I had the chicken liver parfait with a red onion chutney that was equally amazing. My friend had the chicken breast and I had the lamb, and both were presented beautifully and were thoroughly enjoyed. If I lived in Edinburgh, I'd be a regular
