Another fantastic meal at The Stockbridge! It never fails to deliver delicious, innovative dishes that look beautiful and which are cooked to perfection. My duck was melt in the mouth and the tonka bean panna cotta is the best panna cotta I've tasted. Service is excellent as always. I feel very lucky to have such a fabulous restaurant on my doorstep.

Overall the food was good but sometimes not well balanced in terms of flavours. The weak point is the dessert, which really needs an improvement.

Turned up, no atmosphere. Decor was charmless... all things to be honest we could have forgiven, but on discovering the menu was limited, overpriced and there was no option to only purchase individual dishes, you had to order two or three. This was not something we wanted to do, so we decided to have our wine and leave. We politely told the older waiter that the menu wasn't for us and we were going to go, and he grunted "it's not a set menu, and it's online" and was extremely defensive and rude. He held his hands up and stormed off without saying anything else to us. My friend and I were speechless. There was barely anyone else there so it wasn't like we'd wasted a booking.

You don't know if someone has dietary requirements or other issues with food that may mean they're no longer wanting to dine with you. Some basic decency would be nice.

that's such a same our restaurant was not to your taste. we are disappointed which wasn't meant to be rude . our menu is on our website, outside our restaurant and a sample menu on open table with prices . we are more than happy to accommodate dietary requirements but we do state on our menu a min of 1 main courses per person. we have 8 tables , 7 tables were in use when you were in so we were hardly quiet. Basic decency would be to check what you are coming to first before wasting a booking .

We had a fantastic experience at the Stockbridge. The service was excellent, they were very accommodating, and the food was incredible. We had a delicious beetroot and goat cheese starter, amazing duck breast and very delicious halibut, followed by an absolutely amazing chocolate gateaux. I would highly recommend and definitely be visiting again the next time we are in Edinburgh!

Lovely and welcoming staff. Menu limited due to Covid no doubt, so can’t complain. However, the restaurant was quite cold, as was the red wine. Scallop starter consisted of one (large) scallop sliced in half. All delicious though and good value.

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.
