Great value, wonderful food and lovely atmosphere. The attention to detail with all their dishes is fantastic, service is polite and attentive without being intrusive. This is the third time we've eaten here in the last 2 months and we've already re-booked for later this month!

Even under the current Covid circumstances, we had a really enjoyable meal, the restaurant has some great works of art and the food is great value for the high standards of produce, flavour and presentation.
A decent wine and beer selection to accompany your food choices.

I cannot justify how amazing an experience was had. The food was beyond written words. The front end staff were helpful, knowledgeable, considerate and very observant to our needs. The kitchen staff are clearly experts because the food was the best I've ever had.
The current COVID restrictions were cleverly handled safely and with respect to their patrons. I was very impressed.

I couldn't recommend The Stockbridge enough and look forward to my next visit to Edinburgh to go again.

Don’t let its position in the basement put you off, this is a culinary experience not to be missed. Not huge portions but a perfect balance of ingredients and tastes to leave you perfectly full and content by the end. A simple but graceful interior twinned with attentive and charming service make this an Edinburgh must.

Local produce - highest quality - beautifully prepared and presented. This is a Covid restricted menu but the chef has cleverly created balance and something for even the most demanding palate. A fair wine list and excellent Gin Martini - dry as you like it! Staff are smart and attentive whilst respecting safety at all times. A great experience

Well we’re do I begin, having had a really bad experience at a competitors restaurant only the night before when out celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary.
We chose The Stockbridge with a little unease thinking maybe this will also be another disappointment, how wrong could we be, the food was astounding!
The service superb, and the overall experience exactly what you would want when out for a top class meal & celebration , the staff’s attention to detail would put most restaurants to shame.
Well done, we travelled up from Liverpool for our anniversary this restaurant made it memorable.

Our third time back, this has become our go to place for a wonderful meal when we are visiting Edinburgh. Food is always beautifully presented and wonderfully cooked.. Even with Covid measures it still delivered. Tonight Duck and Lamb mains perfectly cooked. Scallop starter was delicious..... shared a cheese board to end. Another delicious meal... service good, subtle and not rushed.

Food was excellent. Very tasty and beautifully presented. Our first visit back to Edinburgh since lock down and eating at this restaurant was a special treat for us, and we were not disappointed.

The restaurant was well organised and laid out for COVID restrictions and screens didn’t ruin the overall ambiance.

The reasons I haven’t given 5 stars for everything are: I would have preferred it to feel a bit warmer inside, as I felt cold by the time we left and I am also not convinced the style of visors worn by staff are that effective.

Overall, This is a lovely restaurant for a special occasion and we would eat here again and recommend to friends.
