Love this place, it’s why we keep going back
We were disappointed to find after after we’d been seated that there was no food being served that day, despite the website saying there was a Saturday menu. It should have been made clear on the website or by email, or at the very least, before we had been seated. We decided to stay for one cocktail before finding somewhere with food, it was nice rough but quite small compared to other city centre cocktails costing £9.
Great place however toilets were a real let down. No toilet roll and needed serviced very disappointed
Booked for small plates in the bar and told no small plates on arrival
Super staff and service as well as very good food
Could not have been happier with my choice. Can not wait to get back and experience the amazing service and best food I’ve had in a long time.
Fantastic b day treat. My best friends is 14th mine 15th. When the watiter poured the proseco we had ordered i told him we were celebrating.
Lovely suprise of glass of champagne and sharing pudding.
Thank you v v much
Lovely place but food disappointing- steak was over cooked and white wine not cold enough
But they took a steak off the bill which was nice
And the strawberry pavlova dessert was to die for
We visited Juniper for the first time before the pandemic and were blown away by the wide choice of imaginative cocktails and mocktails. This time (October 2021) this choice is much reduced, nothing compared to the previous menu. The music was too loud for us to enjoy sitting near the bar where you get a nice view for the castle. It’s still a good place, but now more an average bar than the truly outstanding place that it used to be. We’ll probably look for someplace else next time.
Food was incredible. Staff were super friendly. We had a fantastic experience.
Unfortunately when we dined at this restaurant the choice was limited. Apparently there had been a run on the steak dishes on the Saturday night. We went with the fish which was a good choice
we didnt eat so cannot comment on food- we had drinks only
Pretty sure the waiting staff were tired and desperate to get home as instead of looking after the customers who pay their wages they were that busy cleaning up to get away home instead of coming round asking the important things..
No drink for around ten minutes then when you try to get someone's attention for a desert menu that was a task, then wait for waiter to come back 15 minutes later, then try to get someone's attention to get the bill - It was only when we put our jackets on that they quickly appeared.
If I ever went back it would be far earlier in the evening so they were not in a rush to get out the door.
Excellent service and food was amazing. Loved the setting with iconic Scottish subjects on the walls, cheerful and informative without being twee. Staff were super busy but made sure we got what we wanted, steaks cooked to perfection and everything very flavoursome. We got a very pleasant surprise when our bill arrived as it was lots less than expected
First time dining here. Service and food was great. Lovely surroundings, will certainly be back.
I’ve eaten here many times but last night was the poorest experience ever.
Everything seemed to be off kilter, starting with waiting nearly 10 minutes before someone appeared at check in to check my reservation and show me to my table.
Food here is usually excellent, but my steak was undercooked but as I had started eating I thought I could make do rather than sending it back. Wrong decision in retrospect. I requested a medium steak but this one was closer to medium rare. The meringue dessert had been vastly overcooked and was so hard that it was impossible to get into - even with the mallet provided (a hammer and chisel might have helped!!) - and was returned uneaten. To add insult to injury, the cost of our dessert was included in the total bill and was only removed when we complained. Hopefully this was just a “one off” and normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. I frequently recommend this restaurant to friends and it would be unfortunate if their visits didn’t come up to Twenty’s usual standards.
We had the prix fixe menu, great food with good service. Lovely steak frittes.
Beautiful room. Lovely food and a cracking bottle of Chateau Lyonnat - rarely available.
My wife & I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch & we will be back!
Had booked a bar table but restaurant available with window overlooking Waverley was good position excellent food and service
Great service, good food but very poor coffee, undrinkable! Cheap & weak
Did not have certain spirits when asked for a common cocktail. Hoped to have a good table with good views when asked if it was a special occasion (30th birthday) and provided with a table out of the way and no views despite it being quiet. Have been before when there has been better vibes and comes across now as a standard hotel bar rather than bar I would choose to go to with the company of friends.
Superb food, service and ambiance….the birthday plate with a drink they provided was lovely
The service was excellent our waiter was pofessional but friendly and very helpful. I strugged a bit with the menue because a found I didn't like a number of the menu choices. Overall we enjoyed our evening.
Disappointed to be told "The chef won't like that" when we asked for 2 starters then to share a lobster starter and chips so we wouldn't have to wait to eat.
Soggy chips didn't help improve things.
Beautiful food and cocktails as usual!
We will be back for our next special occasion!
One waiter was particularly cold and blunt towards us, food was rather good though. However felt very uncomfortable, was a shame as we had two birthdays we were celebrating. The other waiters we had were quite lovely.
The friends I was with have all dined at No Twenty before and we all felt the service was not as good as before . On arrival I was early shown to table which I appreciated , ordered a drink however this never came and even when rest of group arrived 35 mins later there was a delay and had seek out service .
Appreciate this may have been down to staffing -managing staff absence , new staff or staff extending shifts to cover etc
Food was good and restaurant environment was lovely .
Beautiful place, friendly staff and a good choice of drinks. We didn't have any food this time.
The Twenty dining room is beautiful, our second time here for lunch and the food was just as good as the first time. The fish was expertly cooked and the thin crispy batter stayed crispy to the last mouthful. Our waiter, Pepe, was attentive and smiling and definitely helped to make our 44th anniversary lunch the best it could be. We will be back again!
Excellent meal. Attentive service. Have booked a return visit. Couldn’t be better.
Probably one of the best restaurants i have been to. The food was exquisite, the service was great, they were so friendly so much so I’m about to book a table for my family for Christmas time.
Nice choice on the menu and nice size portions. Staff lovely
Staff were very attentive ensuring you have all that was required for your dining experience.The menu choices were exemplary and portions were more than adequate.
We got turned away as booked a table at the bar per the BOOK NOW link and they would not serve us lunch. Very embarrassing as was hosting a client. The staff did not accommodate us in any way so we left... hungry
My friend and I used to visit the restaurant regularly prior to Covid-19. This was our first visit back since. The menu and staff seem to have changed - which is fine. However, we both found the manners of our waiter to be questionable.
Both myself and my friend really wanted the burger. She asked to have only 1 patty instead of the 2 listed on menu, and to not include the toppings (onions and gherkins). This is simply because she doesn't have a big appetite- we didn't want a reduction in cost or anything like that. We were told the waiter couldn't ask the kitchen to only use 1 burger patty and told us to just remove it ourselves and leave what food we didn't want. Which we honestly didn't understand the problem with only using 1 burger patty. The burger arrived with all the additions - the gherkins and onions hadn't been removed either.
At the end of our meal we were asked how it was. My friend very politely said her burger was nice but a little dry. I am quite gobsmacked at the response of our waiter (Enrique) who simply looked at my plate and replied with "Well he hate all his" .
Overall, we found the experience disappointing and agreed we sadly won't be returning in the future.
Had such a lovely lunch with my son and catch up with my friend. Nothing was a problem all our needs met to a great standards. Will be back soon
Wish to book for a table for dinner, only got told that they didn’t serve food in the bar area. We end up need to urgently look for another place for dinner…. It’s very confusion, should have highlighted it during booking that bar area is not for food servicing on a dinner booking app, cause most people expect to be able to eat even on bar stands when they book table for dinner….
We are regulars of Twenty. Food is always delicious. The staff are always attentive. It’s always a pleasure coming here.
Was a lovely afternoon very start to finish. Meal was exceptional. Highly recommend
