Scottish
One Square is a welcoming bar & brasserie in the heart of Edinburgh. The thoughtfully created, yet simplistic menus change regularly to showcase Scotland’s finest seasonal larder. We work with local suppliers, farmers and fisherman to ensure that all ingredients sourced are of the highest standard and our menus let the produce speak for itself. Everything that is served on your plate has been freshly prepared by our chefs from start to finish, from cutting chips by hand to filleting fish. From the inviting glass foyer to the ever-popular tables overlooking Edinburgh Castle, the interior has been thoughtfully designed to reflect the contemporary Scottish influences. One Square is a venue that effortlessly evolves as the day progresses, somewhere to while away leisurely afternoons, to meet with friends or sit out on the terrace and enjoy the view. When it comes to the bar at One Square, we appreciate that the difference is in the details.

Again, had to eat in the bar as the hotel restaurant was closed for refurbishment. The fish and chip were excellent, and service was pleasant.

We booked a table for drinks before meeting up with friends and have to say what a great place to start our night out off. Lovely atmosphere and attentive but not overly attentive staff. Reasonably priced drinks made the experience even better. Would definitely return.

Food, service and staff were all excellent, as could only be expected from The Sheraton. I have been there many times, however, have never sat out on The Terrace previously. It was lovely sitting out in the sun. Looking forward to going back to The Sheraton in the very near future and definitely hope to have a meal there over the festive period.

It may be better when the brasserie is open. If visiting before then best to avoid the tepid calarmari.

Really nice and relaxing, staff very good. some seating not ideal for eating a meal but ok for drinks. Avoid sitting near door to terrace, can be cold when people going in and out and cigarette smoke wafts in. Staff quick to close door when it's left open.

Made to feel very welcome and comfortable. We were allowed loads of time to choose our food and drinks, and service was very good - never hurried or intrusive. The food was delicious. I’ll certainly be going back again soon.

We ordered a sandwich and a few sides and it took 45 minutes to arrive. Must say the manager who came over to apologise was wonderful and went out of his way to help us. We’re going to try again in a few weeks when we go to their spa and hopefully we won’t be disappointed this time.

We arrived at the Sheraton for our long weekend and decided the One Square Restaurant would be the best dining option for us on our first evening. We were welcomed by a lovely gentleman who could not have been friendlier and ensured all of our requests were accommodated. He is a true asset to your team! Our servers (a younger girl, maybe 20’s, with blonde hair and a gentleman) were extremely helpful and were extremely attentive, always ensuring our glasses were full and we had exactly what we asked for.
The food was gorgeous, however I would say a little more menu options would be good and there wasn’t an awful lot on our plate for the amount we paid! That being said, it wouldn’t discourage us from returning. Overall, our experience was fabulous and it was a pleasure to dine with you.

Always love the Sheraton Hotel! I’ve been going there since the days of the Grill Room and looking forward to if and when the Sunday lunch buffet comes back.
The Sheraton is 5 Star without being pretentious. Keep up the good work!

Menu not available on website.
We had been to restaurant on previous occasions and assumed it would have been on similar lines to what we experienced previously.
Menu was no better than your average pub but pricing did not reflect this.
I understand the business is coming out of pandemic, but they should put up a notice on website that the brasserie is closed and the menu being offered is very limited.
Came away disappointed in the offering, and disappointed for the staff who surely can't be proud of what they are being asked to provide. Looked like no management in situ during our visit.

We went for drinks outside and it was not worth it. We left after 40 minutes! We looked at the menu and we weren’t very impressed by it. We ordered a draft beer and a gin and tonic, the beer wasn’t filled to the top and they poured my tonic in so all I could taste was tonic! There was no atmosphere, very flat feeling and very quiet outside. We felt like we couldn’t have a conversation and whenever we laughed you could see people looking round. We couldn’t get anyone’s attention to order more drinks and when ever some did come out they were just cleaning the tables and not looking to what was going on. When we did get someone’s attention they didn’t even get the full order! My boyfriend asked to some more drinks asked for a beer and the person walked off before I could ask for another gin. We waited about 10 minutes for a beer and it never came so ended up cancelling it and asking for the bill. Waited another 5 minutes for the bill then someone behind the came out and asked if we had cancelled mocktails. I said no we cancelled a beer and just wanted the bill. The staff member from behind the bar was very apologetic about the situation. A few members of staff were nice but we definitely didn’t feel welcome! I wouldn’t recommend to the Sheraton and I definitely won’t be back!

Really poor service for such a high end hotel bar. Staff would walk past and ignore you when trying to make eye contact to order drinks. Got told our booking had "expired" despite having several free tables available. Poor atmosphere, overall not impressed

We ate in the bar, as covid meant the restaurant & brasserie were closed and were pleasantly surprised by how tasty and gorgeous all items we had from the menu were. The staff were all really pleasant and couldn’t do more to help us enjoy our evening meal.

Service friendly but not very attentive. Service seemed to be prioritised for customers drinking outside, not customers eating indoors.
We were there for a special birthday (50th).
The meal was nice but the Bao buns had a crispy crust and the salad was wilted which may suggest it was at the pass for too long.
We had to ask for our empty plates to be taken away 20 minutes after we had finished. We were not asked if we would like dessert or coffee/tea. We again had to ask for after dinner drinks. Milk was not given with the tea and tried to catch someones eye to get a jug, which was a challenge.
It was a shame as we were looking forward to it, but it was just okay.

Great service (our server Daniel was terrific) and the food was good.

We were outside and liked the screening so you weren't looking at the road. Drinks were a little expensive but nice.

Our main suggestion would be that heaters for the outdoor area would be really beneficial.
