Independently owned and designed, The Spiritualist is a far step away from anything ordinary. It’s enticingly elegant with a touch of cool. Located in the centre of Aberdeen, it’s a place to linger on your own any time of day over a paper and coffee; to relax with family and friends over lunch and dinner or for an evening of cocktails.

Our guests are welcome to book tables where availability allows but we always keep a few tables reserved for walk ins and spontaneity! If you don’t see a table at the time you require, please consider popping in, having a drink at the bar and waiting for a table to become free. You do not require a vaccine passport to join us.

    Beautiful restaurant/bar, brilliant cocktails, great atmosphere. Food pretty average to poor, although the fish tacos were AMAZING. Service was AWFUL. Waited 10-15mins to get a glass of wine and a beer. Were there for almost 2 hours and most of it was sitting with empty glasses or waiting for food, which was also incredibly slow to come. Glad we went to have a night here one time, but would not go back based on the incredibly poor, slow service, and average food.

    The service wasn’t the greatest, we had to wait 20-25 minutes for our drinks everytime we ordered a drink. Our food ended up coming before our first drink. The food and the drinks were amazing, just the service was a bit poor.

    Food was good but we were at a table next to the door and also next to all the tables full of hen parties. Also was told when ordering our food we could only have the table for 1 hr 45 mins if we had been told this on booking we wouldn’t have booked.

    Cocktails were lovely but food was very disappointing. We went for a special graduation meal as we used to love the food at The Spiritualist. The menu has been reduced and choice was very limited & expensive but we all found something we could order. We were so disappointed the burgers were cold, fries were limp and soft and cold. The prawn Katsu was literally one wee prawn on a roll. The only positive of the meal was that once you scraped the soggy Beet Batter (not one bit crispy) off the fish it was nice and fresh. Worth a visit for cocktails but give it a miss for food. We were also sitting at door so it was freezing every time someone came in or went out for a cigarette, not a nice experience and though we have recommended the venue a number of times and have been often we won’t be back in a hurry.

    Hi BellaMoor, did you speak to any members of the team regarding this issue on the night? Please let us know on tsamanagement@signatureubs.co,uk and we can go from there. Many thanks.

    Food and drinks were good. Went at 6pm and as soon as we ordered food the music was turned up extremely loud. Probably would have left if we hadn't ordered our meal. Everything else was great. Would've preferred it to be just a bit quieter or for diners to be sat at the front section which was a lot quieter as we were sat by the bar so it was very busy and lots and not the best spot to enjoy dinner after work.

    Arrived for our booked table and no table available. Waited 25 minutes at bar in which time no order was taken. Drinks, despite ordered in advance as requested, did not arrive until after we’d eaten the course they were ordered for. Kitchen either needs to slow down or preferably bar needs to speed up. Food was very disappointing - those waffles aren’t waffles!! Cocktails when they finally arrived were great. And to top it all of, we were overcharged - check your bills! Staff were all lovely though.

    This is more for the Management team.... We were in from 2pm yesterday till 4pm....unfortunately I only had 1 drink in almost 1 1/2 hours and then had only 1/2 hour to drink 2 cocktails. The young girl who was serving us was lovely and apologised profusely for the length of time it was taking and we were aware that the staff behind d the bar never stopped preparing drinks. That is 2 weeks in a row I have been in and the service has been terrible. Saying that your Pornstar Martinis are by far the best I've had in Aberdeen and that's why I continue to come back. Come on Management you really need to up the game of having more staff on behind the bar as we weren't the only ones having to wait a ridiculously long time to receive our drinks. I would recommend my friends for the lovely cocktails but however overall it would be a NO because of the service.

    Had brunch yesterday, the food was lovely and the cocktails delicious- when they finally came!! We were in at 1, told we had to leave at 3 and in that time we only got 1 Prosecco and one of the cocktails included with brunch, even though it was suppose to be 2, after asking multiple times if they were coming, we sat with our empty glasses for quite some time, with staff members coming to tables next to us, asking if everything was okay but seemed to have ignored us - they then questioned if we even ordered them after I went up to the bar and asked if we could please have our second included cocktail! So after finally getting the cocktail we stayed until after 3 to finish it and then payed and left. Overall it wasn’t very organised and not near enough bar staff. Disappointing as I was really looking forward to an afternoon in The Spiritualist.

    Service was very slow and we had to specifically ask for our next round of drinks even though we pre-ordered all the cocktails for the boozy brunch at the start. We had nearly finished our food before the first drink arrived as it took so long. The food was ok but very dry, waffles could use more syrup. Staff were nice but you could tell it was too busy for the amount of staff on.
