    Came for my brother’s 18th birthday and noted this on the reservation but they did nothing and did not acknowledge it which was disappointing. My filet was cooked a perfect medium rare but everyone at the table who ordered medium received rare steaks, so that was equally disappointing. At the end once they cleared our table and left us without any drinks, they made us wait 30 minutes until we had to physically walk up to someone to ask for a check. In the entirety of the meal we saw our server twice. Must say, not worth $500 for this meal at all. Save yourself the trouble and pick something else.

    We sat in the bar side due to the restaurant undergoing renovations. Some very good choices for signature cocktails- I recommend the Eclipse for a sweet drink! We shared the spinach and plant ricotta appetizer- you get 2 in an order. I enjoyed the chicken dish with carrot risotto and grilled leeks. They sticky pudding with poached pear and ice cream was delicious- and enough for 2 to share. Enjoyable meal and experience! Lovely server named Anna! Very good bartender!

    First time visiting Twenty in Edinburgh. Place looks amazing, clean and service is next to non 10/10. prompt with service and the food, the food is soo damn good. I had the Grilled leg of Lamb which just melt and the Mrs had a large chicken caesar salad which she loved, then desert she had the sticky toffy pudding and I had the Hot choco cake, so so good. good portions and value for money. Highly recommend as we’ll be going back with our friends. The services highly knowledgable and friendly. Go see for yourself don’t just take my word for it go, go experience it for yourself. It is a smart casual though we dressed up to the max as it was our 1st date night in like 5yrs 😂🤣. But they made it a lovely night to remember.🫶🏾

    Absolutely delicious! The taste is slightly less salty than most restaurants so it’s especially suitable for ppl who love that, and I think you can add extra salt from the salt bottle on the tables.

    Great experience, a lot less lively inside than I expected but might have just been coincidence. Had the filet which was lovely with the garlic butter, partner had a steak as well with the peppercorn sauce. Highly recommend getting the side of shrimp/prawns as a starter.

Being a lunch time on a weekday it was quiet and we were able to sit by the window and enjoy the lovely Edinburgh scenery. Highly recommend.

Everyone agreed the food was delicious and portion sizes were perfect. I did request a table in the window which was not provided but the table we were placed at was comfortable. Generally everyone had a great meal and experience.

    Three friends meeting after some time were able to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere, where we were very well looked after enjoying a delicious lunch. We made an error calculating our bill as a result overpaid. This was quickly spotted and discovered by one of the charming waitresses, sadly I don't recall her name. Outstanding vigilance, honesty and customer care. Love the design and artwork, elegantly atmospheric.

    Love the ambiance, food was amazing, serving portions are available, if you’re a big eater then don’t ever choose a small or medium instead ask for large. Will go again that’s for sure.
