The GF menu is quite limited. So unhappy that tbe ceasars sauce includes anchovies. Having food allergies is difficult enough..

Enjoyed our meal but on the 20 menu I think the choice was not as good as before. There used to be salmon and chicken dishes. So not as happy with menu.

We went for Sunday lunch and a catch up with a friend. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The roast beef and vegetables were cooked perfectly and the desserts were delicious. Will certainly be back again.

Food and service was excellent, only let down at the end by the fact I was £13 out of pocket as it was not clear you had to spend all the voucher at once.

I like Twenty as a venue but I found it a bit run down and empty compared to other places which were really busy and hard to get a table. Nonetheless, enjoyed the food.

Lovely spacious room and we had a cracking window table overlooking Princes Street and the Balmoral hotel.
Waiting staff were informed and offered excellent service.
However, slow 8 hour roast (allegedly) lamb had flakes of pink and was tough as old boots. 2 of our group had the lamb and had to send it back and had beef instead

Food was outstanding and the baked Alaska was one of the best deserts I’ve ever eaten...with a bit of drama thrown in for good measure. Wasn’t impressed with the quality of the glass ware. Expensive wine and champagne served in sub-standard glasses. Toilets could also do with more regular cleaning as they were not up to the standard of the restaurant. Aside from this I’d recommend this restaurant for the quality of the food and will definitely return.

Really enjoyed the atmosphere the waiter Craig was superb very attentive polite ,helpful and informative. My only gripe of the evening was 2 of my guests ordered fish pie , expecting something resembling a traditional British fish pie were bemused to see a plate of fresh seafood with pastry top . We all agreed it should be renamed Seafood Medley and accompanied with a photo to show its appearance. We hope that Chef Elizabeth will take our review onboard. We look forward to many more delicious meals. I loved the Seabass by the way.

You ask me to select from a list of 51 attributes "What would I recommend this restaurant for?" and that list, shockingly in my mind, doesn't even include the most important of all- SERVICE! The staff are just so attentive and friendly yet discreet you would be pushed to find a fault.
The steaks, although pricey, are spectacularly tasty. Also important to me is the fact that the tables are generously spaced so that you can be confident that your conversation isn't being overheard or interfering with others. Top marks. My current favourite Edinburgh restaurant!

Good service, although we booked for May day Monday bank holiday and it was very quiet. I have been for a meal on a Saturday evening group of 10 and the service was awful. I would recommend it but not on a busy period, sorry no points there.

Had another really lovely dinner at Twenty Princes Street with my husband and another couple. The food was excellent and I enjoyed trying new items on the menu. There were slight issues of forgotten items or cutlery etc at each course which took away from the experience slightly as we found ourselves asking for something each time - but overall the experience was very good. The new cocktails in Juniper were also lovely. Will definitely return again! Thanks for a lovely evening.

In arriving we visited the bar. It was busy but we did manage to get 2 seats. Service was ok we did wait a while for our 2nd drink. My husband went to bar for this and was advised that the staff would bring it over. We waited 15 mins then my husband went back to the bar and it was brought to us within 5 mins then the first one we ordered arrived. Do that kind spoilt things for the bar experience. Service in the restaurant was excellent apart from the time waited for drinks again.

We were made very welcome waiter very attentive. Food was really good . A bit expensive but worth it . A bit annoyed when we went to pay the bill . We got the bill checked sorted out the money paid the waiter but before he left with the money he asked us if there was a tip in with the money I wasn’t quick enough or I would of asked for the bill and the money back to take out the tip we left . I tip on the food and the service and did not appreciate being asked if we have left a tip .

Enjoyed our lunch although new menu does t quite match the old one. The steak sandwich before had amazing chips with it and served on a slip baguette new menu standard shoe string fries and steak served on a chiabatta roll which was too thick. Quality of steak was good.
