Twenty, Princes Street, Grill & Smokehouse
Ambiance affected by Covid procedures somewhat but excellent steaks. Limited wine list. Service good and brought a treat as we were there for an anniversary, great meal given current situation. Thanks.
3 diners had starters then sharing board. everything was just delicious. Great cocktails. Fabulous surroundings. Lovely staff, very attentive. not the usually busy, noisy atmosphere but perfect for a lovely calming lunch with daughter and granddaughter.
All precautions for socially distancing in place and no need for mask once seated. Happy and memorable occasion.
Booked for special occasion, did not enjoy the food overpriced. Ordered steak but believe we never got the right cut ordered sirloin and my guests and myself were not happy explained to waitress and she insisted it was the right. Ambience was very quiet no music very boring experience and my family from London were visiting. Will not come back unfortunately did not enjoy the dinner and it was £169 we spent a good amount.
The food was extremely disappointing. Prawns tasted like they'd been sat in an ashtray all day. That's not an exaggeration, they literally tastes like that. Perhaps, the josper has sat dormant too long or something, creating that taste.
The steaks were OK. They weren't amazing. The ribeye was overcooked but it was' fine'. The desserts were as disappointing as the rest.
The service was good. No complaints there.
I wouldn't demand my money back but I also wouldn't recommend it to friends and family and I wouldn't rush back.
The steaks were lovely, however you are charged £3 for the sauce side which comes in a tiny dish. I don't mind paying extra for sauce, however paying £6 for 2 tiny sauces is a bit extreme.
The food was so nice. The service was really good. Will definitely be back.
Great food and outstanding service . One way system in place which worked very well.
Great location for an overdue catch up with my friend. Excellent starter and the burger was amazing....could do with a few more choices for main courses though
Enjoyed our meal and felt safe at all times .
We will come again .
Service was a little slow, had to ask a couple of times for the dessert menu and the bill but a great experience overall. Staff were friendly and all wore masks. Social distancing not a problem as huge space and food was delicious and great value as they are doing the 50% off government scheme. Hand dryer wasn't working in the toilet and there were no paper towels left but staff sounded keen to rectify that quickly when I let them know
Lovely food, great service, fantastic view. Very clean
This was my first dining experience since lockdown eased. I felt very comfortable and confident that all precautions had been taken. The food was lovely as always.
Amazing service. Staff were very helpful, friendly and polite. Prompt service. Food was outstanding, full of taste and flavours. Steak was cooked to perfection. Would definitely go back when I next visit Edinburgh.
Food was excellent, staff friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.
BECAUSE I BOOKED THROUGH OPEN TABLE WE WERE NOT OFFERED TWENTY MENU. ONLY A LA CARTE. NOT SUITABLE FOR LUNCH
Great food in fine surroundings with a lovely view! Highly recommended 👍
Best steak I have ever had was so tasty. Would defiantly be back again.
The service and food at twenty was excellent . We will definitely be returning again.
This is a new restaurant only second day of opening since covid. The name of the restaurant suggests french cuisine, however guests should check out menu before booking.
Never seen a well-done steak cooked better. Prawns starter wasn't cooked properly and seemed raw in parts.
Peppercorn sauce was too runny.
Nice feel to the spot though and plenty of space.
First impression was wow and it got better and better. Highly recommend for anyone in Edinburgh wanting a lovely evening with lovely food and great service. Not the cheapest but certainly one of the best.
Really enjoyed our visit to the restaurant . Food was amazing and freshly cooked , drinks were perfect and service was excellent . Will defenitely be back .
Service was great. Food and cocktails were amazing would definitely come back
Lovely food. Not too filling. Restaurant very quiet but I appreciate due to lockdown people are still nervous about eating out. Marvellous view of the Edinburgh skyline. Water topped up with requests.
I had a steak, me wife fish. Accompanied with a glass of wine. Everything was lovely. I especially appreciated the very kind service. The view on old Edinburgh was also a plus
I was disappointed with my visit. When we arrived we were told that we could pick any table as we were the only ones there. But a few of the tables were looking dirty, crumbs on the seats.
I knew before going that the menu was going to be limited due to the circumstances but I was surprised that there was no children’s menu. We were there to celebrate my birthday and I had my 8 year old daughter with me. The waiter only went and asked in the kitchen about something for a child because I mentioned that I saw a menu in my confirmation email still listing a child’s menu.
I have been a few tines to this restaurant and I have always enjoyed it but if this visit had been my first I probably would not be back.
First proper outing since lock down. This was to celebrate my brothers birthday. This resturant has so much space it feels very safe and the staff are very attentive. Everything arrived quickly and the steaks my partner and I eat were first rate. Great evening, thank you all!
It was good to finally get to dine out and we really enjoyed our dinner. Even thought the menu is limited at present we were able to get the main steak dish we had gone for.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Twenty. Was a lovely experience altogether coming into town to be served lovely food and drinks in great surroundings. Food never disappoints and staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Even when we asked to change tables it wasn’t an issue despite social distancing. Look forward to our next visit .
Delicious meal and great to see then open in the current environment. The black pudding / haggis French toast was absolutely to die for! Highly recommend!
The meal and service were outstanding but I would have preferred to eat in the bar area as it was cosy and had atmosphere. The large dining area lacked atmosphere and was soulless unless you were at one of the two tables at the window, overlooking Princes Street. It was like eating in a barn. It was empty and echoey. It wouldn’t take much to improve it with plants or low hanging lights or large screens to section off areas with no one In them. I did enjoy the meal and service though.
Attentive service, food nice but pepper sauce very runny and buttery. Felt it was a bit over priced.
Lovely food and staff will definitely be back. Felt Irma, even during lockdown circumstance
We had a great time. It was difficult to create the usual atmosphere as it was quieter than normal - completely understand why. However the staff were really friendly and looked after us well.
It was so nice to be back
rib eye wasnt great and at £28 it should have been better.
scallops were very good if small.
staff were attentive.
Hello AG123, I am really sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your dinner on Friday. Our steaks are of the highest quality and bought from a highly respected local butcher so TWENTY is always a safe bet for steaks. We pay a premium for the best and it is disappointing that you have not enjoyed your ribeye this time. I will feed this back to our butcher today. Many thanks, TWENTY
Brilliant staff and lovely food
Thank you so much! We are delighted you enjoyed it!
The menu was limited for obvious reasons but a pasta dish or salad would’ve been a good addition. We ordered the burger which wasn’t particularly enjoyable. The relish wasn’t a good addition-it would’ve been best on the side.
Hello KatB, Thank you taking the time to offer your feedback. I am sorry the menu wasn't to your liking. We will be changing the menu regularly working with our local suppliers to offer as much choice as possible to our guests. Our burgers normally go down a treat but obviously no to your taste. Thanks! Twenty
We were craving for nice steaks and decided to come here as not was labelled as ‘steakhouse’.
My boyfriend ordered rare but got well done an I ordered medium but got very very well done steak ( the edge of steak was black)
My peppercorn sauce tasted like butter with tinge of pepper 😂 never tried such peppercorn sauce before.
It took a while for the waitress to get our order as well.
It was not worth over £100 worth of dinner for two people but the ambiance gives you a high end vibe so I guess you are paying for the ambiance rather than the food quality .
I don’t think I will be coming here again but if I do I will be ordering generic pub food to be safe like burger. You would hope you can’t go wrong with burger, right???
Hi Foodie,. am really sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your dinner on Friday. Our steaks are of the highest quality and bought from a highly respected local butcher so TWENTY is always a safe bet for steaks. I was on duty on Friday night and nothing was sent back to the kitchen. We would have been more than happy to rectify if we were aware your steaks were not cooked how you wish them to be. Many thanks, Michael Nawrot General Manager
Had a sirloin steak, which was cooked beautifully. The star of the show was the honeycomb dessert. It was outstanding 👌
Thank you so much for the review! Great to be back.
Had a lovely meal for friends joint 60th but also their 40th wedding anniversary. The service and food was excellent and our server was extremely courteous
