Hi, been few times previously and rated 5 stars but felt this time that some of the staff were a bit rude and not interested in helping with the small things like providing vinegar and ketchup or even asking if everything was okay with the food, did we want another drink etc!

We were asked if we wanted water for the table when we arrived - said yes please - water came and it was hot so had to ask for ice separately - asked for the bill and we were charged £4.60 for a bottle of water. Surely the staff should be asking if you want a jug of tap water or bottled water! Always been jug previously.

Bit disappointed because previous visits have always been perfect.

This is the second time I've been to this restaurant and this time was for a Valentines meal with my girlfriend. All staff are very welcoming, accommodating, and made the whole experience a pleasure. Very attentive whenever we wanted or needed anything, and were happy to engage in conversation. The food was absolutely outstanding, could not fault one single item we ordered, and I was actually shocked when the bill came as I was expecting it to be much higher (and I would have happily paid it if it was).
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, for any occasion really. It is equally suitable for a business engagement as it is for a romantic evening, or even just a social lunch or dinner with friends.
Top marks, I will be returning next time I'm in Edinburgh.

Superb Sunday roasts and all the trimmings in a prime location. Ask for a window seat if possible and enjoy the views too. Service immaculate in the interesting elegant dining room, every wall crammed with interesting old pictures. A hidden gem in the heart of the city.

Food quality was very good and the restaurant building was very nice with lots of space. What let the experience down was the service which I found to be poor from the beginning to end. Firstly we had to stand at the entrance until the receptionist finished her work of hanging a range of coats on hangers which took an age to complete, Waiter service was generally poor throughout the meal and I had to ask the floor manager for the bill as no waiters appeared to be keeping a heads to see if customers needed anything. No bill was produced and I had again to ask a waiter. Paid the bill but no tip which is something that I do not like to do.

Enjoyed a family lunch in a really nice dining room with fantastic views across to Edinburgh Castle. Service was outstanding from beginning to end. And food selected from a varied Day Menu was very tasty indeed. Sweets particularly good! Just a great time all round.

I've dined here several times, either with one other person or in a group. Neither I nor my companions have ever had a bad word to say about our experiences. Waiters are helpful and know their products. Food is delicious, with good presentation. Wines are well priced. I'm a keen cook and love getting ideas when I dine out and Twenty never disappoints. I don't know if I'd go so far as to set light to my Baked Alaska though.

We were one of only three groups of diners in the restaurant. We couldn't hear each other speaking due to the very loud wailing country music being played. We had to come and find the waiter several times (he was dancing in the bar) to ask for our order to be taken, bill to be brought etc. The starters took ages to come - we were in the restaurant for an hour and half and had two courses and had to rush to leave. Very poor, I won't be coming back and I certainly won't recommend you to anyone.

The food was very good, with generous portions. Our waiter was polite and pleasant. The restaurant was comfortably warm(two days ago it was rather cold), and we were not rushed even when we had finished eating.
I have dined in Two for Twenty several times over the past couple of years, sometimes in a big group, sometimes with just one, or two others, and I have never been disappointed.

Took a party of 7 - The dining room is lovely, service efficient and the food was the best I have had in a long time. Members of the party had a variety of main meals and all were spectacularly good from Steak to Lamb to fish. The Baked Alaska was an event not a desert! Universally recommended!
